Sweet Sweet Words

This past wedding season has been a busy one for us! We have seen it all, from weddings starting at 4:30am to wedding party’s of 15 or more! With all of the work that goes on behind the scenes, the months of preparation, we love when the wedding day comes around and we get to work our Salon 253 magic!

We wanted to share these amazing photos from Mike Adrian and the sweet words from one of our brides, Natalie Baker. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do!


“I wanted to send you my biggest warmest thank you for beautifying us on the wedding day. I know we were a challenging group size to tackle but thanks for doing it with grace and style 🙂 Your team was so great to work with and did an amazing job! I can’t tell you how happy I was with the way my hair turned out – it was beyond perfect and lasted all night! I am forever grateful for your calm demeanor and excellent expertise. You made the experience so enjoyable from start to finish! Thank you so much!

P.S. I will be referring every one of my friends getting married on Maui to you!”

You know the bridal business is big on Maui – but how do you set yourself up for huge success with BRIDES – the only people who really matter?

There’s only one way: find out how to make them look STUNNING on their Big Day.

Impress Adiel and Get an Interview for the Salon 253 Bridal Glam Team

When you attend Adiel’s classes on June 29, you’ll have an up-close-and-personal glimpse into the mindset and process she uses in her bridal business. If during class you start thinking “Wow, I’d love to work with her,” you won’t be the only one – and if you catch her eye during Session 2, you’ll be in luck!

That’s because demand for Salon 253 Bridal Glam Team services is increasing every day and we are booked out months ahead of time. It’s time for Adiel to carefully and thoughtfully add team members to her Team.

So if you’re an excellent stylist and great team player who is looking for regular bridal work, there is a special opportunity to join our committed, passionate, in-demand team of stylists for super-regular work throughout the year.

We’re looking for:

  • Sizzling Styling Skills: If you’re experienced and do great work, we’ll offer you endless opportunities to shine.
  • Super Professional Work Habits: If you know how to pull yourself together and show up like a respected professional and colleague, you’ll love being on our team of committed, supportive, fun stylists. We get it done and have lots of fun!
  • Excellent People Skills: If you know how to “read” a client and anticipate what they need – like how to keep quiet, so she can focus, or how to chat so she is distracted, how to put her at ease and make her feel safe and comfortable before she gets married … you’ll love working with us.

Come to class ready to learn on June 29 – and ready to schedule an interview with Adiel if she likes your work. She’s looking out for Maui’s next Top Bridal Stylists – and you could be one!

(Note: if you think you would like to be part of the Salon 253 Bridal Glam Team, we recommend taking both sessions so Adiel can see you at work.)

Brides Thank You Text Messages

I truly love each bride I get to work with. Each wedding is special to me; it’s her wedding day and I am lucky to get to share in her joy. Sometimes I am amongst the crowd of the wedding party and other times I am the only one with her before she walks down the isle. Many times I have been there to help her into her dress(I consider myself a pro at a square knot now). I have been given the honorary title of maid of honor. I just enjoy each moment right along with you. In my eyes getting to do it for a living is the bonus.

Thank you for giving me this joy!

The Do’s and Dont’s of Eyelash Extensions link from Glamour magazine a must read if your thinking about this service.


The only thing different is the price they say the service is $200 and it is at most salons on the mainland but at salon 253  a full set like pictured above starts at $90, a steal!
