More about Yvana

- Chloe B

"Can I give 100 stars, five is just not enough!!"

"Yvana, you are incredibly talented and made my wedding hair goals come to life. It was a dream and I felt so beautiful - thanks to you!! Despite a hot, humid summer day, my curls held the whole day (lots of dancing included) and I received so many compliments. You made my hair perfect, not one piece was out of place and you were an absolute blast to work with."

- Debra H

"her masterclass was one i didn't want to miss" 

"Having first seen Yvana Sanders’ beautiful work on Instagram and having a desire to up-skill on bridal/event styling, I knew her masterclass was one I didn’t want to miss. Yvana and her styling partner Cat are extremely talented and are happy to impart their extensive knowledge in styling. Their fresh take on how to achieve current/on-trend styles left me feeling inspired and excited to create for my clients."

- Serena P

"my hair was everything i dreamed of"

“My hair was everything I dreamed of for my big day and made me feel like a princess. My bridesmaids hair looked absolutely gorgeous and our hairstyles still looked amazing after a long day and night! Yvana is so lovely, professional, easy to talk to and communicate with, kind and calm — which made this stressed bride feel so relaxed and at ease.”

- Amy B

"it has totally changed the way i style hair"

“I came away from Yvana’s masterclass feeling so inspired, with so many new techniques and skills that I could apply to my work and to my business. It has totally changed the way I style hair for the better. She was patient, kind and humble, I felt totally comfortable styling hair in front of her.”
