Lecia Harkins Named Winning Stylist
For two years, the Wedding Industry Experts have picked award-winning stylists, designers and big day guru’s to honor, and this year, Austin’s own Lecia Harkins made the cut!
“I was nominated last year, too, and I still don’t know who nominates me, but…YAY!” Harkins laughed. “It’s just very exciting to have the business noticed and appreciated.”
The awards recognize wedding professionals on a local, national and international level, taking 29 countries and 70 categories into account.
Harkins won the 2013 Best Wedding Makeup and is the owner and artist behind Beauty On the Go – which won Best Wedding Makeup Artist Service – and Russ and Company Salon – which won Best Wedding Hair Salon. Both of these help style many runway looks for the ATX fashion scene.
Russ and Company and Lecia have also received awards from Austin Fashion Week.

The wedding season keeps her salon busy throughout the year with multiple weddings each weekend, meaning Harkins and her team won’t get a day off until the end of the summer.
“We usually have about 200 weddings a year, so about three to five each weekend,” Harkins said. “We’ve gotten a huge response, and I’m looking forward to a break – but I know it won’t last long!”wedding
