My name is Savanna Aragon Allen, owner and founder of A Toast to Beauty. I am a fully-licensed professional in hairstyling and makeup artistry and graduate of the amazing Paul Mitchell the School San Diego.
I after receiving my cosmetology license in 2008 I worked in the salon industry providing cut and color for 4 years. I worked among many talented stylists in the industry and had wonderful clients, however I felt my heart was longing for something more. In 2011 I discovered hair and makeup in a whole new light, the wedding industry. I instantly fell in love with everything about it. From the uniqueness of every bride and her style, to the passion and love her family and friends share with her on the wedding day, to the moment she steps into her wedding dress! My heart almost burst at the thought that my "job" could consist of sharing these precious moments with a bride on the most important day of her life over and over again. I decided at that moment, that I had found my true passion. I quickly made the transition out of the salon world and have never looked back.
In the wedding industry, I freelanced on my own, providing both hair and makeup for 4 years. I then rebranded my name and established A Toast to Beauty in July of 2015. In less than 3 years, A Toast to Beauty has provided hair and makeup services for over 400 events. To say I am extremely grateful is a supreme understatement! I am beyond blessed that my career is doing what I love and in the process, getting to share one of the greatest milestones in a bride's life.
A little note: My wonderful husband and I have been married for a little over 4 years. Our relationship and the time we spend together is our number one priority. With both of our busy schedules, we have chosen to dedicate Sunday's to spend time together. We attend our wonderful Church on Sunday mornings and afterwards, enjoy as much R&R as we possibly can. With that, this year (2018) I have decided to stop taking weddings on Sundays. If your wedding falls on a Sunday, I would love to set you up with one of my wonderful stylists below. Each girl has been hand selected by myself to represent my name, and my brand. You will be in exceptional hands with these gals. (these stylists, will also be your bridal stylist when I am booked for Friday and Saturday weddings) Thank you so much for your understanding in advance and I cannot wait to speak with you!
