La Bichette, a new
hair and makeup studio right across the street from SMU, brings a
country-French feel to Dallas. I had the pleasure to create a simple hair
tutorial with the red-headed mother daughter duo behind La Bichette, Marsha and Tammy Coleman. A braided crown looks fancy, but I promise it’s a super easy updo that
can be done in five minutes or less!
All photos by my sorority sister and fabulous photographer, Robbi Jo Robyn.

Ta-da! This is Tammy, the brilliant and beautiful hairstylist behind the final look. Tammy’s favorite childhood memories are of watching her mom, Marsha, get ready. They would discuss school projects and life in general as Tammy intently watched her mom apply mascara and spritz glamorous perfume. When she grew up, Tammy dreamed of opening a hairstyling and makeup studio. Tammy and Marsha decided to turn her dream into a reality and La Bichette was born! Tammy is no longer the little girl playing dress up in her mom’s bathroom, but La Bichette has given them the opportunity to live the same routine all over again.
Tammy and Marsha found inspiration for the store’s name and theme during a trip to France. They admired how French women balance femininity and feminism, and they hoped La Bichette would embody that kind of woman.
In keeping with La Bichette’s vintage French theme, services bear French names such as “Babette,” “Violette,” and “Nicolette.” Wooden frame mirrors with encrusted diamonds and glam chandeliers with glass baubles give off a rustic glitzy vibe, which I translated into my outfit as well.

La Bichette
is open seven days a week. Call
214.520.3500 to make an appointment for your next sorority formal,
girls’ night out, or boulevard!
Prices definitely cater to the SMU crowd
with blowouts for $35 and makeup applications for $40 with some varying price
points. Be sure to like La Bichette and Brooke du jour on Facebook, too!
Would y’all be interested in another hair tutorial? I would love to experiment with a hair bow!

    How fun! When I was visiting Dallas a few weeks ago I saw this place and wanted to stop by! I will have to try it next time I am in town. You look adorable, as usual. That is such a fabulous pearl collar necklace!
