I cannot even tell you how much we LOVED the services from Mack Stylist!! I did quite a bit of re search when it came to my hair and make-up artist. At the time, i was having HUGE issues with my skin. I had HORRIBLE Acne and i refused to let it show on my Wedding Day! The first trial...i knew what was going to happen, and unfortunately because of MY skin issues ( NOT THEM ) My make-up melted right off within an hour. I emailed Mack my concerns and she said, dont worry we will figure this out!!! She had me come back in for a trial with Nick. Let me tell you, He is AMAZING!!! I loved him! On my wedding day, we ended up choosing to go with Airbrush make-up. Myself AND my Bridesmaids looked FLAWLESS...especially since it was about 88 degrees outside and i sweat SO bad! I thought for sure my hair wasnt going to last and my make up was going to melt off!!!!! Not to mention...I LOVEDDD my Hair by Mack! At first i wanted side braids like every other bride was doing this year.....and i am SO glad Mack talked me out of it because it really is JUST a fad and she knew i would probably regret it looking back in 10-20 years from now (Kinda like the 80's style lol). Anyways....THANK YOU SO MUCH to Nick and Mack for Making my Wedding Day absolutely FLAWLESS!!!
Mackenzie and Lakisha were such a pleasure to work with, from my trial to the day of our wedding. They both have fun and light personalities that made the wedding morning so easy and relaxed. Lakisha brought out the beauty in me and all seven of my bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law. The make-up looked flawless in photos throughout the evening. Mackenzie is such a creative hair stylist, and she stayed with us on the day-of until everyone was 100% happy with their hair. I couldn't have been happier. Thank you, Mackenzie and Lakisha!!!
I would wholeheartedly recommend Mack Stylist to anyone getting married in the Philadelphia area. When I started doing research on salons and stylists, there were a lot of details to consider. I spent a lot of time reading reviews and looking at pictures of their work. Mack’s was the most professional and non-cheesy. I didn’t want everyone to have hair and makeup that looked like they were going to a formal high school dance or dance recital. On the day, Alison and Nicck absolutely killed it, eliminating any residual stress I had over how much I was paying for hair and makeup.
Everyone in our bridal party had slightly different styles, and Nicck and Alison were able to make everyone feel confident and awesome.
My only complaints would be extremely minor, related to email responsiveness and cost (I know, I know, it’s worth it, but still a little steep compared to the competition and made me cringe a little!). Don’t fret, just book them. It’s one of the best vendors we had and I’m so thankful I went with them. Until the day of the wedding when I gave Alison a vague description of the hair I wanted and told her to go for it, I was worried that I’d spend my life saying “I wasn’t crazy about my hair…” Instead, I’ve had people tell me that they’re using my wedding photos as hair inspiration. They were both so easy to be around, too, it all just felt comfortable. Instead of rushing around the morning of the wedding, we got to hang out and drink some bubbly. Perfect!
Mackenzie and Jess were a dynamic and mega creative team. I think what I loved most about Mack Stylist was their ability to take my original idea and just make it a work of art. It was no longer the Kiera Knightly hair style I found but they transformed it into an original "Aimee" look. I have never felt more beautiful in my whole life and my bridesmaids and mother were all stunning compliments to the overall look. I didn't feel overly made up either, it was super retro chic but I still felt like me which is how every bride should feel. Apart from the beauty aspect Mack and her team are incredibly professional and the line of communication was always open. If you hire Mack Stylist, and you really should, one thing I would recommend is to not be too controlling. They are pros and know what they're doing. If you don't like something they will listen, but I really feel it came together in such a beautiful way because I kept an open mind and trusted in their talent. Bravo!
Congratulations Aimee! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review for Mack Stylist. Mackenzie and Jess were thrilled to be a part of your special day and especially enjoyed the opportunity to be creative in developing your tr...
I couldn't have been more thrilled with Allison from Mack Stylist. She and an assistant did hair for nine women on my wedding day (me, two mothers, six bridesmaids) and everyone looked amazing - polished, soft, natural and classic. They were efficient, calm and organized. Allison did my hair exactly as I wanted it, and built volume and hold so that it last perfectly the whole night (which ended up being over 12 hours!). I couldn't have been happier, and would highly recommend her, and Mack Stylist in general.
I LOVED McKenzie and her team for scheduling me and hour later then the rest of my bridal party and everything else she did! Her whole team was so professional, accommodating, and nice . Everything turned out better then I ever even expect. I had the ceremony at a church at 10 am, pictures from 12 to 4:30 and a Jewish ceremony at 6pm, and its a Russian wedding so party until 2 am.. everyone's makeup and hair stayed almost perfect!
For all brides to be--- the day will be documented in photos forever, you want to look better than you ever have!!!
Mack Stylist did a wonderful job on the hair and makeup for my bridal party and me on my wedding day. Everyone looked beautiful and the makeup and hair looked great in all of our pictures. I would definitely recommend their services!
Mackenzie did my hair and makeup for my wedding along with a few bridesmaids and the mother of the groom. Everyone looked amazing! Mackenzie was professional, personable and is a true artist!
I found Mack Stylists through the recommendation of a friend, and I could not be happier with my decision to work with them for my wedding day makeup! Mackenzie was very accommodating leading up to the big day with scheduling trials for both my mom & I. Lakisha & Seth, our day-of makeup artists, were incredibly talented & professional & helped make every member of my bridal party look absolutely stunning. We loved them and can't thank them enough for everything!
Mackenzie and her team were amazing and so very talented to work with. I definitely made the right choice for my wedding day hair and makeup.
A couple of my bridesmaids and I had hair and makeup trials at Mackenzie’s studio, what an exciting experience! They were so welcoming, and made the day a lot fun.
On the morning of my wedding, Mackenzie arrived at my suite bright and early, before 8AM to get through all eight of us by noon. She gave all my bridesmaids amazing up dues, and even finished ahead of schedule. My hair looked exactly as I pictured, Mackenzie was so helpful by giving my maid of honor step by step instructions of how to pull my hair back for when the reception started.
Nicck is an amazing makeup artist. He has a great personality and is perfect to have with you on your wedding day. He calmed everyone’s nerves and made the whole process fun. My airbrushed foundation lasted all day, making our wedding photos look flawless. My mom even gave false eyelashes a try when she saw how great they looked.
Mackenzie and Nicck made my bridesmaids and mom look absolutely beautiful. I would not have wanted to work with anyone else, my bridesmaids and I received so many compliments. You need to have Mack Stylists on your wedding day, you won’t be disappointed.
Mackenzie did a fantastic job of doing my bridal party's hair. Each one was unique and beautiful. My florist gave her a giant floral arrangement for my hair, and Mack fixed the poorly-designed piece and made it work perfectly...never moved one inch the whole evening! Lakisha was also fantastic: my makeup has NEVER looked so natural and so luminous. They both listened to what I wanted and executed perfectly. I definitely recommend them to others; you'll be able to tell at your trial if they mesh with your vision.
I had a very large bridal party and we all take pride in the way we look. Thanks to Mackenzie and her stylish team, they helped create the classic look that I attained for on my wedding day :)
Mackenzie is an incredibly talented and intuitive hair stylist. I should also mention that she is highly responsive via email, professional and timely. I first met Mackenzie when I went for a hair trial with my mother in law. I wasn't sure what I wanted and Mackenzie further confused me, but only because she was so talented! In the course of an hour, she gave me about 5-6 different hair styles - some which I had conveyed I was interested in, some that were traditional hairstyles and some that pushed the envelop a little bit. It gave me a lot to think through and really helped me make a better informed decision for the day of my wedding (otherwise, I would have always been wondering about whether I should have done a full updo. Just like trying on several different dress styles, trying on several different hair styles really helped me (eventually) make up my mind and find my own style). Although, I must confess I left her studio that day thoroughly confused, but only because I loved each hair style she did more than the last. Mackenzie's talent is further illustrated by the AMAZING job she did literally making over my mother in law's hair. Her hair was very short and dated and we weren't sure what to do with it. Mackenzie ended up giving her a fabulous hair cut that made her look up to date and probably look off 15 years (she has since been keeping up the hair cut and continues to look fabulous!).
The day of the wedding, Mackenzie came through again, making a believer out of my skeptical mother who did not want her hair done -- and then she spent the whole night and the next day loving the hair style Mackenzie had given her. Also, Mackenzie is part mind-reader because I was having trouble articulating just want I wanted . . . and then poof! she pulled my hair up just how I was thinking. I highly recommend using Mack Stylist for your wedding. You will not be disappointed with talent, taste and professionalism.
This is not something you want to worry about on your wedding day! Mackenzie and Lakisha do beautiful work! Everyone in my bridal party looked amazing. I knew from the minute I met these ladies that I had made the right choice. My trial was actually fun and super comfortable. Mackenzie knew exactly what to do and I just let her do her thing! Lakisha is a true artist. It was such a pleasure having these ladies around - they were prompt and professional all while being super friendly and chatting and laughing.
Everyone looked gorgeous...and stayed that way for hours and hours! Mackenzie and her team rock!
Mackenzie and Lakisha did my hair and makeup for my engagement pictures this past weekend and all I can say is WOW. I was beyond thrilled with their work! I'm a bride who has done my own hair and make up for years so I knew I wanted a team who would really take my look to the next level by giving me celeb worthy status. Mack Stylist went above and beyond that! I left feeling super gorgeous and confident for my photo shoot. My experience was amazing, they were able to create the look I was envisioning perfectly. I honestly was sad to undo my makeup and hair at the end of the night! I was so happy with the results, I mailed in my deposit to book Mackenzie & Lakisha for my wedding the very next day!
We were married 9/15/12. It was the week of my wedding and because of a few things I had no hair & makeup booked for myself and wedding party. My husband contacted Mackenzie after reading great reviews. Nicck and Allison did the trial that day at Mackenzie's studio in her house.
I had a few inspiration photos and the hair and makeup were beautiful. Everyone in the bridal party looked like even more beautiful versions of themselves- no pancake makeup or stiff prom hair here.
Nicck & Allison arrived early at my Mom's house and quickly set up shop. Both were extremely organized\, kind and talented.
I recommend to any bride to skip the salon and have hair and makeup come to you for your wedding day. It saves so much stress and time.
My hair and makeup looked flawless through the entire day.
Mackenzie is amazing and so is Jen (make-up artist), as well as all of the other stylists that she works with.
I had a large bridal party and everyone finished AHEAD of time and looked absolutely gorgeous, perfect hair, flawless make-up.
Mackenzie and her team showed up early, set up and were ready to go. They made my morning so stress-free and fun. I loved my hair and make-up, all of my bridesmaids were happy and my Mom and Mother-in-law both looked breathtaking. I can't recommend Mackenzie and her team enough.
I used Mack Stylist for my wedding and my pictures are perfect. Everyone kept telling me how great I looked. Mackenzie was great working with my curly hair and my fiancée's hair too. Jen is the nicest person and my face was flawless. I had no idea what I wanted so I just let them do their thing at the trial. I loved them and their work. I just wish I had something else to book them for.
I contacted Mackenzie after my original hair/makeup team canceled on me about 3 months before my wedding. I don't live in Philly anymore and it was too late to go in for a trial but Mackenzie not only was able to fit me in but she did an amazing job sans trial. I absolutely loved my hair as well as the job she did for all of my bridesmaids and the moms. She got Nickk to do our makeup and he was equally amazing.
I would 100% recommend to anyone!
Mackenzie and Jen were wonderful and made the day truly special for all. Everone looked so gorgeous! And the girls loved beging able to relax around the house as we got ready vs. the rush of a salon. Could not have been more prefect!
