Everything was great! The staff was very professional and did a great job! I'm so glad I selected Appease for such an important part of our big day!
The Blushing Bride Package was worth it on so many levels! Massage, mani-pedi, hair, and makeup! Everyone I worked with was amazing and friendly. My makeup and hair trial was at their Lombard location which is beautiful. I would recommend them to everyone, even those who aren't getting married.
I knew the look I was going for on my wedding day and Appease hair/makeup helped make that happen. I had some particular major problems with my skin on my wedding day that they were able to hide- I was so grateful for their expertise. They were also really fun and willing to change things that I and my bridesmaid weren't totally happy about.
Carla did an amazing job on our hair and makeup. She asked questions to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. Emails and phone calls were answered promptly and she was very professional. She was very accommodating by doing my trial on a day that they normally don't. I would definitely recommend Appease!
Carla did a great job with my airbrush make-up. She was very professional and very friendly.
I loved the stylist, she was amazing. My makeup was great, I loved it the most because I still looked like myself just with great makeup, and my hair was also great. I loved my makeup because even after all the dancing, my makeup still looked great.
We were very happy with how our hair and makeup was done for the wedding day. Carrie and Carla were great to work with, they did a great job.
Appease was one of the very few vendors I could find for hair and makeup for a bride + 2 for under $750. I think I paid about $500 overall. My artist was very friendly, the trial went great. She came to my apartment and we had fun chatting while she created a beautiful hair and make up style for me.
The day of, she came to the hotel where we were getting ready and started with a bridesmaid who wears almost no make up. The makeup on this bridesmaid was done pretty heavily, despite her request for extremely light makeup, so she ended up removing a lot of it. She did a great job on the second person.
My hair and makeup turned out lovely, but the hair wasn't the style we had done in the trial. I couldn't see this until it was finished and too late, which was frustrating. The style was pretty, just not what we had planned. Both the updo and makeup held up very well throughout the night, which was great.
Carla Was There For Me Every Step Of The Way. She Was Very Helpful And Flexible. EveryoneS Hair And Makeup Was Beautiful.
I loved how I looked the day of my wedding, and how my maids and moms looked. The trials were great, and helped determine what we wanted for myself. The day of, my hair was not done the same and needed to be adjusted. It was still not done the exact same, although close. One of my maids took quite some time to get her hair after many changes because it just did not look good. Very curly hair. In the end everyone looked amazing, just took some time.
Overall the prices were some of the best for this service. I also liked knowing if one of the artists was sick, they have subs on hand.
SO AMAZING! Carrie and Laura were incredible! Carrie showed up and did hair for hours! Every single bridesmaid (I had 6), plus my mom and my flower girl as well as myself. We all looked amazing! Everyone loved their hair (how often does that happen where everyone loves their hair...never!) She was so sweet and friendly, too. My hair was incredible and stayed all night long-in fact everyone's hair held up through hours of dancing! Laura was the make-up artist and she was fantastic. People who didn't pay for make-up ended up getting it done because it looked so good. I've never felt so beautiful in my whole life! Pay the extra for the air-brush...so worth it! Plus they give you a foundation, lip liner, and lip gloss for touch-ups!! I wish I could have them do my hair and make-up everyday!
I hired Carla and her team for my New Years Eve wedding. Carla did an awesome job on both my hair and makeup. I normally don't wear makeup or do my hair and we were able to work together to create the exact look I wanted. The best part of the experience was having a trial a few months before the wedding. I was able to update my look for the wedding without the anxiety of not knowing what I would look like. Plus they came to my hotel room for the wedding which was super convenient.
Carla is very sweet and easy to work with. I would recommend her a million times over. FANTASTIC!
I was a little worried about using a "company" for our hair and makeup. But I was proven wrong. Carla did the hair for my entire bridal party and mine and my mom's makeup. I was INCREDIBLY pleased with how it turned out. Before planning my wedding, I had no idea this was a whole industry. Carrie was great in working with me to answer all my questions pre-wedding. Carla came to do a trial with me and really listened to my ideas and feedback. She is truly an artist. We were so happy we chose Appease. They were affordable and very talented.
Laura did my hair and make-up and she was awesome! She is very professional, completely knows what she is doing and made me look like a million bucks! I love that Appease takes on lump sum from you (tip included) and they are very good about getting back to you and setting up your appointments. Great to work with. Definitely, 100% recommed!
Appease came to our hotel to do hair and makeup for the girls and moms. I also did an at-home trial with Appease. In the beginning, I had great communication with Appease (via email). About 6 months before the wedding, someone else within the company began responing to emails and she was not always very organized or responsive. My trial went fine, although there were things I wanted to change. On my wedding day, Carrie did the hair and she nailed it! I made some changes after the trial and she understood them all and it turned out beautiful. Sunshine did the makeup and after all of the changes I had, she did a fantastic job as well. Both girls did hair and makeup for the wedding party and everyone absolutely loved their hair and their makeup. There was only one girl who did not have the right foundation color on. I pointed it out to Sunshine but she checked her and thought it was fine. Maybe it was the lighting but she looked even worse during the evening when the lights were dimmed. My girl didn't say anything but I felt bad because it should not have looked that way. Overall, I would recommend Appease. I'm not giving them 5 stars because of the email communications and because of the girl with the orange-ish foundation color.
Ok, don't get me wrong. The stylist did my hair and make-up beautifully. It was how I wanted it...However, I thought it was overly-expensive for me and my bridesmaids. The cool thing is they will come to you...
very quick to respond to emails and phone calls, good pricing, and great makeup and hair stylists! Iris did my hair and makeup and was so fun! she helped me relax while i was in the chair and made me feel at ease. They got there a little early and got right to work. They actually finished with me, my maids, and the mom's an hour early. so that was great because i didnt feel rushed!
I used Appease for my hair and makeup for my wedding (in addition to hair for bridesmaids and mother) and everyone loved their look on the big day. I had some changes to make after my hair trial and they really listened to what I wanted and made sure everything was right on my wedding day. I had Cathy for my hair stylist and Sunshine for my makeup artist. Both women were extremely nice and professional and did an excellent job!
The women who run Appease are very friendly and professional. The girls who came to do the hair and makeup were prompt and were friendly as well.
We did have an issue two days before my wedding day where the girl who I had my trial with became, what I believe was, indefinitely unavailable. When Carrie called to inform me of this news she already had a backup ready for me and my girls, but I no longer had the benefits of having the trial. Carrie did refund my money for the trial.
On the day my hair came out great, and my makeup looked nice in the mirror. The only issue was when I saw my friends and family photos with standard point and shoot cameras, I came out kind of ghostly. My makeup was, I feel, a few shades lighter than my skin. I also asked for more dramatic eyes because I like to focus more on my eyes then anything and in the photos they looked kind of dull and gray. I had mentioned the girl that I had that I like that bridal glow look, but I looked more matte. This is why trials are so important! So I do not blame the girl who did my makeup because it was too hard to figure it all out on the day of. It's just a bummer that my face wasn't what I hoped it would be. I am hoping that the professional photos come out better because it will be less of the direct harsh flash.
The girl who did the mom's and the BM makeup did a wonderful job, her name was Peggy.
I was generally happy with our hair and makeup services. Appease was great about accommodating a very early start for me and 3 bridesmaids (5:30am - ready by 7:30am). I did feel a little pressured to go with more dramatic makeup, even though I expressed several times that I only wanted a very basic, simple look (I NEVER wear makeup and didn't want to look dramatically different at my wedding). I let my makeup artist try the dramatic look at my trial, but neither I nor my fiance liked it, so she went with a subtler look for my wedding day. We also booked a mani-pedi party for about 10 people, and they came right to the hotel and did everything for a great price. The one thing I was unhappy about was my waxing service - I booked through them and said multiple times that I had never had a wax. They told me very little about what to do beforehand (when to stop shaving, etc), so that some of my hair was a little too short. The people I booked with were different than those that provided the services, and my waxer said that it's a common problem and she wishes the bookers would give more information. She did the best she could, and it turned out okay, but it wasn't as good as it should have been had I received more thorough instructions like I asked for.
