I was referred to Red Carpet Brides by a friend and they did not disappoint. From the moment I scheduled the makeup & hair trial, they were a pleasure to work with. All of my questions were answered in a timely manner, and the results were exactly what I requested. I had also contracted them for the hair/makeup of each bridal party member and the MOB, for a total of 10 people including myself. Their team was fantastic and kept us stress-free and laughing the whole morning. My hair and makeup lasted long into the night, with curls still remaining the next morning. I would highly recommend their services.
Dana you and your entire family were such a pleasure to work with! Thank you for sharing your pictures with us and that beautiful thank you card! Wishing you all the best in your marriage and life together. :)
Tara and Christy are outstanding artists and I recommend them to every New York Bride. My makeup stayed flawless all day (it was a LONG day with pictures throughout NYC, happy tears at the ceremony and dancing at the reception). I have fine, stick straight hair but wanted Christy to style my hair down and curly-It stayed beautifully curled throughout the elements of the day (my hair never stays curly-I don't know how she did it!). Tara is exceptionally organized and professional and was quick to respond with all inquiries and last minute changes. Both Christy and Tara are true professionals, they arrived on time and had everyone finished with time to spare. Tara and Christy did hair and makeup on my entire bridal, MOB and myself and we all have never looked better. Your hair and makeup gives you the confidence you need on such an important day-it was extremely important to me to find the best and these girls are it. Highly recommended!
The make-up for my wedding was done by Tara Pagliara of Red Carpet Brides NYC. She made it seem as though doing make-up for four people was a total breeze, after a long flight from NY to FL! She not only did my make-up, but also my mother's, my brides maid's, and my Maid of Honor's make-up, and we all looked FLAWLESS. I look at pictures, and feel like she helped me trick my husband into marrying me (j/k). I've never seen anyone make application of make-up look so effortless. She even did individual lashes on all four of us, and it was amazing!! We all looked and felt terrific, and she was on-site to make sure we stayed beautiful all day. I think the temperature was just under 100 degrees on my wedding day, but she made sure we looked refreshed and cool all day and long into the night. ALL of us were very impressed, including my husband, who couldn't get over her amazing accuracy and speed, when matching all of our skin-tones, evening us out, and giving us a natural look that was divinely seductive. Professional, high-quality, FAIRLY PRICED (hard to find!), and a pleasure to work with, Tara will now forever be my "go-to" girl for beauty, and I'd expect nothing less of the rest of her team at Red Carpet Brides NYC.
When I first met Tara and Christi last July at my trial, I immediately clicked with them as they knew exactly what I was looking for, and I felt so beautiful. Throughout the wedding planning, they were always there to answer any questions that I had. On the wedding day, they were ready with assistants right when we needed them, and their presence made the morning so much fun! Everyone's hair and makeup looked GORGEOUS- so much so, that my mother-in-law didn't want to take hers off! I am so happy I used them both, and would definitely recommend them to all brides and bridal parties!
If you're looking for a dependable vendor, I would highly discourage booking Christi for a day as important as your wedding. Throughout the process, she was unresponsive and I had to follow up with her multiple times in order to get a response. She cancelled on me about 5 weeks before my wedding for personal reasons, but the way she handled it was completely unprofessional and unethical. Sure, my trial came out nice, but the negativity associated with using her is NOT worth it. I've never written a negative review before, but just want other brides to avoid dealing with her for their special day, when there are plenty of other amazing hair stylists out there!
Christi did my hair and my bridesmaids' hair, as well as both my mother and mother-in-law's hair for my wedding and all turned out amazing! Each of my bridesmaids had specific requests. Christi knew what incorporated their ideas with her own twist and they all not only looked awesome but they each loved the finished look. Christi did an amazing job and was also fun to work with- felt like just another one of the girls while we were all getting ready. I would definitely recommend her for any special event!
I totally recommend Tara and her team. They do amazing quality work and are a pleasure to work with. You definitely get that red carpet look on the day u want it the most. Would totally use them again. I was extremely happy!
I contacted Red Carpet Brides after asking around on who to use. I contacted a few different vendors and I have to say that I could not of been happier with the service I received from them. All of my emails and calls were returned immediately and they were early! Everyone including myself looked amazing the best part is Tara's entire Chanel kit! Great makeup and application. If you are looking for amazingly talented, professional hair and makeup people in NYC this is your team. Thanks again so much for making my day so special! xoxox
Christy, Tara, and the rest of the gang at Red Carpet Brides NYC are absolutely incredible! These ladies are miracle workers; my bridesmaids and I looked and felt amazing after getting our hair and make-up done. People are STILL talking about how gorgeous and unique my updo was on my wedding day!
The ladies at Red Carpet Brides are true professionals who are passionate about their work, and care about their clients!
I can't say enough about Red Carpet Brides, and in particular MUA Tara Pagliara... Book them- book her for makeup and prepare to look and feel amazing on your special day. I got married last Sept. and Tara went above and beyond to ensure my bridal party, mom and grandma all looked stunning- and the end result was beyond what I had imagined- I've never seen my friends and family look more beautiful! Tara is exceptional- she did my trial, took her time and walked me through color pallets and really listened to what I wanted an she got how I envisioned myself looking or my wedding day. And when the big day came- she rocked it- my makeup was perfection and lasted all day and all night- through tears, sweat, pictures and dancing- I loved it. Tara's makeup allowed me to be myself, just a little more fabulous and my husband said I've never looked better! My bridal party looked stunning and my pictures came out amazing- I couldn't be happier with the service and I highly recommend Red Carpet Brides. They demonstrate the utmost professionalism, help keep you calm and make you drop dead gorgeous!!!
I would highly recommend Tara and team for any wedding or special event. My bridesmaids and I agreed we had never seen such professional, elaborate work for a bridal party. They were efficient, put everyone at ease and listened to any and all concerns and suggestions. Most importantly - we all looked fabulous for my big day!
I worked with red carpet brides for my wedding this July, and I have to say that I could not have been happier with my experience! Tara is super is easy to work with; she is professional, punctual, and as a person who gets their make up done frequently, I can't think of another artist who did my makeup better. In addition, one of my main concerns on my wedding day was my make up staying put; due to the salon I was getting ready at and the location of my wedding, my make up needed to be done in the am while my ceremony was is the evening- my make up did not come off until I washed my face after my wedding. Would 100% recommend!!!
I originally planned to do my own hair and makeup for my best friends wedding. Well that all changed when I saw the work these girls did. Halfway through the party getting ready I regretted my decision and quickly asked them if they could fit me in. The assured me there was enough time. I DID NOT want to be the one who wasn't getting glammed up by these girls. My hair and makeup were PERFECT. I have some horror stories from letting other hair and makeup work on me which I was horrified in the results. I am hoping to be engaged within the next year (fingers crossed :) ) and Tara and Christy are going to be the first vendor I reach out to! I have to have them!!! I cant say enough good things about them cant wait for my turn! Not only are they super talented but their entire team is as well. So sweet and funny and totally listened to what everyone wanted!
These 2 ladies made my day spectacular! Their professionalism, perfectionist ways and great personalities really allow my bridesmaids, my mom and myself to relax and just have fun prepping! They knew exactly how to achieve what my Giles and me asked for and if they did not have something during the trial they went out to get the props, makeup colors needed to achieve my special look.
I highly recommend them and would use them again in the future for another event.
I booked Red Carpet Brides for myself and my bridal party and i'm so glad I did! I'm a makeup artist myself so I spent a while researching on the web before making my final decision and from the trial to the wedding day Tara and Christy did not disappoint! They listened carefully to what we wanted and spent the time making sure they got it right. The makeup and hair lasted all day/night and looked amazing. Very happy and would highly recommend!
Tara from Red Carpet Brides is truly amazing! My bridesmaids and I looked and felt absolutely beautiful on the day of my wedding. I am one of those people that never knows what they want/what looks good on them, and Tara knew exactly what to do! She asked me a lot of questions, gave great feedback and made me feel so comfortable and confident on a day that I was very nervous about!
Tara is extremely professional and personable. My makeup lasted for the entire day (about 10 hours)...no touchups needed! I just got a preview from my photographers, and the makeup for my bridal party and I look AMAZING in my photos! You can tell that we all felt so beautiful from them, and I couldn't be happier with everything Tara did for us. She is an expert at her craft, and I can't thank her enough for the wonderful work she did!
I booked a trial with RCBNYC the same day as my engagement shoot. They did an amazing job with my hair & makeup - even my photographer was impressed and asked for their contact info. 6 months later it's my wedding weekend and RCBNYC posted a cute message on facebook wishing me a happy almost wedding day! It was so sweet and I was really looking forward to hanging out with them because that's basically what we did while my girls and I got our makeup/hair done. We listed to music, chatted, and definitely had a few laughs. Christy does amazing things with hair and Tara with makeup. They are both so professional and everyone in my bridal party as well as myself looked FLAWLESS. The best part is everything stayed in place and at the end of the night I still looked like i did in the morning.
We had such a wonderful time with you Grace! Best of luck in your new marriage! xoxox keep in touch!
Red Carpet Brides was recommended to me by my venue and Tara (makeup artist) and Christy(hair stylist) did an amazing job. They were on time, efficient, friendly, professional and REALLY good at what they do. They made me look unbelievably GORGEOUS on my wedding day. During my hair/makeup trial both girls really listened to what I wanted my "LOOK" to be on my wedding day and they tried a couple different styles. The day of my wedding they both kept me calm and laughing. I look at pictures and I still cant believe how AMAZING my hair looked. I wore a half up look and my curls were done PERFECTLY! Tara also did my mom and one of my bridesmaids. All our makeup looked absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend these girls and would definately use them for future events!
I was in a wedding party that Tara worked on and literally felt like we could easily be the models in any bridal magazine photo shoot! Every girl looked like their self, only better which is exactly what good make up should do. Plus they were punctual, professional, and fun! After such a fantastic experience I know I'm using them for my wedding next year and am looking for any excuse to need to get my make up professionally done by her! I highly recommend Red Carpet Brides to everyone in the NYC metro area!
I fell in LOVE with Tara from Red Carpet Brides the moment I met her, shes a blast to be around and way too talented for her own good!
She made my bridesmaids and I look SO beautiful, I was so floored! I wouldn't of done anything differently Tara really made the day even more amazing. I'd recommend her to anyone who asked without a second thought or moments hesitation.
