Once Upon a Time...A Storybook Bride: Once Upon a Bride

Once Upon a Bride helps create magic on that special day when a woman wants to feel more glamorous than she's ever been in her entire life. Stacey Lyn, the founder and creative director of OUAB who has been in the beauty biz for 20 years, observes, "When I'm getting brides ready to walk down the aisle, that's when perfection matters most. I try to bring a modern and sexy look to a bride and make her feel like a goddess on her wedding day." 

Lyn, who has worked as a make-up artist and hair stylist at some of the city's most prestigious salons, went on to ply her trade on countless movies and TV shows, including the sudsy "Another World" and "As the World Turns." She did the bridal party for Robert Downey, Jr.'s wedding and she's been featured in InStyle magazine. She's put together a swat team of beauty experts -- her "glam squad" -- who perfect hair and make-up on location for brides, doing everything from pedicures to highlights. Prices range from approximately $350 each for hair and make-up (for a senior staff person) to well over a thousand dollars for toes-to-tiara beauty procedures with Stacey herself. When brides come in for a run-through ($250 and up), they are asked to bring their favorite make-up, a picture of their dress, and so on, and Stacy experiments with different looks so that there are no surprises, no mistakes...and hopefully, there will be a happily-ever-after ending. By appointment only. 296 Elizabeth St. btw. Bleecker & Houston Sts., 212-353-2350; www.ouab.com (This article originally appeared in the 4/06 issue of Manhattan Living.)
