These girls were out of this world! To look your best on your special day - there is only Charlotte Phinney and Co. We used three artists (hair and make-up) We had about 15 girls using the service. Each girl had a unique hair style and make-up application. No two girls looked the same. These artists were creative, professional, efficient, great listeners and great personalities. Charlotte runs a fabulous business. Any questions, all my e-mails came back to quickly (never more than 1 day) and more common in several hours.
The air brush make-up was incredible. Being the brides mother - I shed a few tears - my daughter too (happiness tears) the mascara did not run, the foundation did not rub off even after a million hugs. I did not have to keep checking my make-up - I still looked the same (fabulous) when the reception ended. We looked our best for all the pictures. I did a lot of research as I live in Michigan, and my daughter lives in Florida. I did not know one hair and make-up artist in Boston (where the wedding was held). All my research - Charlotte's name kept coming out in top. I now know why - she (and her girls) are the best of the best.
Cait and AnneMarie did hair and make-up for me, my bridesmaids, my Mom, and Mother-in-Law. I was so nervous about my make-up as I don't typically wear a lot, if any, make-up day-to-day. But they both did a great job and made us all look gorgeous and natural. Their personalities were also so great to work with. They were relaxed, efficient, and both had a great sense of humor.
I think the biggest compliment I can give actually comes from one of my bridesmaids. She used to be a wedding photographer herself. She said to me post-wedding that this was the best hair/make-up team she has ever seen. She was really impressed with the results.
All of the women looked gorgeous that day. I couldn't be happier with how I felt that day and how all of my pictures turned out.
Definitely the perfect choice for wedding day hair and makeup! Annemarie, Julia and Ashley came to our hotel room to do hair and makeup for myself, my five bridesmaids and my mother, stepmother and mother-in-law. They were on time, stayed on schedule and were overall just a pleasure to work with!
Annemarie was so great during my trial so I knew I could completely trust her on the wedding day! I was a bit nervous about the airbrush makeup at first because I was afraid it may look too heavy, but it looked perfect and stayed on throughout the whole day. I got so many compliments about my hair and makeup and I can't thank Annemarie enough for doing such an amazing job! I would highly recommend Charlotte & Co!!
Super professional company - great to work with and good results!
I contacted Charlotte while I was in Singapore. Despite the time zone difference of 12 hours, Charlotte responded very promptly to me and she was able to answer all my questions in the most friendly way over email.
I learnt about Charlotte from reviews and even heard about her by word of mouth. I knew from the start that it would be such a bonus to work with her personally. Thankfully she was available. And of course, I didn't hesitate to quickly secure her time.
On the day of my wedding, she was very flexibility. She showed up at 7am sharp, at my request, at the hotel, despite a long drive from home. Charlotte had gone the extra mile to apply my make-up in the way I had envisioned it. She also took extra steps to ensure my hair had bigger and tighter curls which was an initiative she incorporated on her own after a wonderful hair trial with her. I would totally recommend the hair trial as it saved so much time on the actual day which allowed me to get on as quickly as possible to do my pictures.
My sister and sister-in-law loved their hair and make-up as well. When I got back to the hotel room after a first round of outdoor pictures in the sun, I learnt that Charlotte actually waited for me so that she could quickly do final touch ups on my hair and make-up before leaving. I really appreciated it and couldn't be more grateful for her time.
I would recommend Charlotte to every bride! I'm sure you'll enjoy her wonderful personality as well as her talents, experience and professionalism as much as I did.
A friend from work recommended Charlotte for hair and make-up. I'm so glad that she did! Right from the start, working with Charlotte was easy.
The trial was great; she tweaked the amount/style of make-up so that the look was exactly what I wanted. My friend had mentioned that I should try the false eyelashes during the trial, so I figured this is the time to go for it. They looked amazing both at the trail and at the wedding!
On the day of, Charlotte arrived exactly on time and was ready to get started. My mom and sister didn't do hair/makeup trials ahead of time, so Charlotte took the time to pause, ask questions, and make sure that they were happy with the hair and make-up as she was working (they were!).
The makeup that Charlotte uses really stays on. I kept meaning to go to the ladies' room during the reception to reapply lipstick, but I was having too much fun. From the pictures, it's clear that the lipstain that Charlotte used stayed on. The airbrushed make-up also withstood the warm temps. at the outdoor ceremony.
I loved the way that I looked on my wedding day and I received so many compliments from friends and family members. Charlotte is wonderful to work with. She's kind, easy, going, and professional. I whole-heartedly recommend her!
Hiring Charlotte & Company to do hair and make-up at our June, 2014 wedding at the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in Whitefield, NH was one of our best decisions. We were planning our wedding from over 7 hours away and were very unfamiliar with the area. Hair and make-up was by far one of the biggest challenges, trying to schedule trials and find someone willing to travel several hours to our venue. We also had a very large bridal party to accommodate. After several trials that went well, but just weren’t what I was hoping for, we found Charlotte & Company, and I could tell from the first phone conversation with Charlotte that our search was over. Charlotte was very responsive and flexible. After my trial with Annemarie, I felt such a huge sense of relief, because Annemarie was able to create a look that was exactly what I was dreaming of. Annemarie and Nicky traveled over three hours to the wedding and they were on time, cheerful and kept our very large bridal party on schedule for all of their hair and make-up. Charlotte was also great in helping to organize a schedule to keep everything running on time. Annemarie did my hair and make-up, and it was exactly how she had done it for my trial, if not better. I was so happy with the look, she truly made me feel as special as a bride should feel on her wedding day. Nicky did the hair for the mother of the bride and all of the bridesmaids and Annemarie did all of their make-up. They kept everything on time, so there was no stress and they both were a lot of fun while we were getting ready and helped get the day off to a great start. All of the hair and make-up came out absolutely beautiful and myself, my Mom and all of the bridesmaids loved our looks. We started taking photos several hours pre-ceremony and Annemarie and Nicky stayed to do touch ups right before the ceremony. The hair and make-up lasted all day and night. I was nervous about airbrush, because I had never used it before and don’t wear very much make-up, but I loved the look and it was very natural. We could not recommend Charlotte & Company and Annemarie and Nicky enough.
Charlotte and her team were great on my wedding day. They showed up early at our bridal suite. Everyone loved their hairstyles and makeup. I loved the airbrush makeup. It looked very natural in pictures and also loved my natural looking hairstyle. Charlotte listened to what I wanted and was so nice to everyone on my wedding day.
I highly recommend booking Charlotte & Co. for your wedding. Charlotte is extremely warm, professional and responsive over email (this is huge when planning a wedding!). On the day of the wedding Charlotte and Brian (make up) were a dream team, efficiently beautifying my three bridesmaids, my mom, my best friend (not a bridesmaid) and myself. Charlotte worked with me to get the look right, and Brian did this awesome, dramatic makeup that was simply spectacular and tailored to each individual. I felt like a movie star, which is how every bride should feel! Brian has a special knack for getting an idea of what you want, picking out the right palette and then just running with it, turning you super glam. Charlotte had all of my girls looking ravishing, and wishing they could do that at home:) As for my hair, although it turned out great, I do regret not doing a trial run before the wedding. It definitely would've been fun to see multiple options for my hair before the big day, when you're nervous and feeling pressed for time even though you're not! That said, my hair looked beautiful and these two are pros who are definitely worth it!
Charlotte, Joanne, and Gianna did a fabulous job on my wedding day! I met Charlotte first for my trial, and brought along my mother for whom Charlotte was happy to accommodate for a trial as well. Charlotte was amazing--made us both feel comfortable, and when we gave her very little instruction and more-so told her to do whatever she thought was best--she was AWESOME. She took into account what our dresses looked like in her plan, and is clearly a hair and make-up mastermind. Charlotte and her team were all a few minutes early on my wedding day (which was bright and early!), and worked patiently, quickly, and with amazingly high quality through myself, my family, my husband's family, and our wedding party (including three young flower girls). Everyone looked absolutely beautiful and the hair and make-up stayed flawlessly through the end of the night. I would not hesitate to recommend Charlotte to others (I already have!), and would love to use her again for another occasion in the future. Thank you Charlotte (and to your wonderful team!) for doing such a great job on my wedding day, and helping to make me more relaxed when I freaked out about the weather and all the other little details!!
I hired Charlotte to do my hair and makeup for my wedding, as well as the hair for one of my bridesmaids, and the makeup for my mother. We all loved her. All I had to show her was one picture to give her an idea of the style I wanted and she went to town, and actually, she did a better job than the reference picture I gave her. As far as my makeup was concerned, she understood that I don't wear much makeup, and managed to find the perfect blend for me. I was very impressed.
I highly recommend Charlotte to any bride looking for an on-site hair and makeup artist. She is amazing, professional, and kind.
Charlotte is amazing. This review is a little late in coming. We were married on 12/12/12. It was a Wednesday in December. Charlotte had no problem moving her schedule around to accommodate us. She was so relaxing. It was actually a treat to have her pamper us. She did my hair and makeup, my sister's and my Mom's. She did an especially amazing job with my Mom who usually doesn't take much time to do pretty, girly things. We had so much fun in the hotel room before the wedding. The airbrush makeup is incredible. No smudging. No streaking. She did my chest and shoulders since my dress was strapless and there is not a speck of makeup on my gown. The makeup was smooth and natural. Mostly it was comfortable. As most brides know, you get flushed, hot, and yes, a little (a lot) sweaty. But the makeup held up. The false eyelashes too! I didn't have to touch up anything other than my lips all night! As for my hair, last minute I decided to order clip in extensions to add a little length to my hair. I sprung it on her the day of the wedding and she pulled through like a champ. She was able to blend them so that they were completely seamless without any prior notice. (I'll try to add some pictures). I couldn't be more pleased. Thanks Charlotte!
Annemarie and Charlotte did our hair and makeup. The initial plan was for Annemarie to do 7 girls for hair only, but then my makeup artist canceled a few weeks before the wedding. Annemarie and Charlotte were able to take on one more for hair and 8 for makeup no problem. They did a great job and were very pleasant and calm on the day of the wedding.
I completely adore Charlotte. Charlotte came to my rescue after my original stylist had a medical emergency 2 weeks before my wedding. After reaching out to many vendors, Charlotte responded quickly to my email and set-up a trial right away. I gave her a few ideas of what I wanted and she did a better job than I could have ever imagined. I didn't hesitate to book her for my wedding. She came to my hotel room and fixed my hair and my bridal party. Everyone's hairstyles looked great! Besides her amazing talent, she is a sweetheart to work with. She is so sweet, gentle and kind. It was a pleasure to have worked with her.
Charlotte and Annemarie did the hair and make-up for my wedding in November, and they were truly wonderful to work with. They were able to create exactly the look that my wedding party wanted, mothers included! They were right on time, patient and calm in the midst of all the usual wedding morning chaos, and stayed until everything was perfect. The airbrush makeup was flawless and lasted for over twelve hours, as did the hair. I would HIGHLY recommend Charlotte & Co. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to work with them.
Charlotte was an absolute delight to work with. She was kind, supportive, and creative during my hair and makeup trials and has an ability to make those around her very comfortable. My mother was thrilled to work with Charlotte. Janine accompanied Charlotte for hair and makeup services on my wedding day. Everyone in my bridal party looked and felt beautiful. The false lashes and airbrushing are included in the makeup service and are done tastefully and beautifully. Charlotte is providing makeup services for one of my bridesmaids for her September 2014 wedding.
I couldn't be more pleased with Charlotte and Joanne. They came to our location and did an amazing job on all the hairstyles for the wedding party. I loved my hair and make up! I had never had my make up done before and was worried it would look overdone, but Charlotte made me look beautiful. Both stylists were very skilled and were such a joy to work with. Thank you to them for making us all look fantastic on my wedding day!
I met with Charlotte a few months before my wedding to do a trial hair and makeup. I loved her from the start. She is very friendly and flexible. She put me at ease, so I knew I could be stress free.
The same is true for my wedding day. She traveled to me. My hair and makeup were flawless. I had pictures taken prior to my ceremony by the ocean and it was a very windy day. Everything stayed in place! And the pictures came out amazing.
I felt so comfortable with Charlotte. She did an amazing job and I would recommend her to everyone.
The make-up and hair team was FANTASTIC! I think everyone looked incredibly beautiful, and my hair and make-up was as close to perfect as I could imagine. Annemarie, Dottie and Carrie were all very professional, fun and friendly. The make up looked natural and the hair all came out different, according to everyone's requests. And they listened to what we wanted and made adjustments as we asked for them. I would recommend Charlotte Phinney to anyone!
Let me preface this review by disclosing that my wife Stacy and I are both professional marketers/event planners. Stacy has executed hundreds of weddings. And yet regardless of one's occupation, planning your own event/wedding is SO OVERWHELMING!! So many details, options, prices, people to coordinate. Ah! Well let me make one aspect of planning easy for you -- if you are getting married in MA, CALL CHARLOTTE & TEAM!! I called and booked Cait the same day (after viewing her portfolio online which includes the very same hairstyle I wanted). They are so kind, patient, responsive, practical, talented. They don't require expensive trials or charge endless add-on fees for things like lashes or air brushing (and theirs is natural and long-lasting). On our exciting day-of, we just sat back and relaxed as Cait designed hair and/or makeup -- for us, my mother-of-the-brideZILLA and a bridesmaid -- just as we asked, easily incorporating hair pieces/makeup we had bought in advance. Any additional requests/tweaks through the process, she quickly incorporated. She really prioritized our visions, especially since she hadn't actually seen us in full makeup beforehand, we'd only chatted on the phone. There was no snobbery or "but you should do this." And when we were running a bit later than schedule, Charlotte who just happened to be in the area popped over with her extra chair and supplies to help Cait and get us back on track. She even coached Stacy through applying her makeup a bit differently on a daily basis.
Really, I can't say enough about about Charlotte and Cait! They made us all look and feel spectacular. I so strongly recommend them, and am just going to have to plan another event soon so we can hang again!
