If you haven't booked Up do's for I do's yet, you need to do it NOW! I can't express how thankful I am to Ashley and her staff, and how lucky I was that they were available on my wedding day. The staff is professional and fun, they make brides feel special, and stress free, but they also made each of my bridesmaides feel special too. We had so much fun the morning of the wedding getting our hair and makeup done. From the moment I contacted Ashley, I knew I was in good hands. Ashley and staff did my hair/makeup, as well as 8 bridesmaides, both our moms, 1 grandmother, and 5 aunts. Everyone LOVED their hair & makeup! I have and will recommend them to every bride I know. This is such a wonderful service to have!
Cannot thank the ladies at Up Do's enough!! My sister used them for her wedding, so after one experience with them, I knew I had to book them for my wedding as well! They are so talented and professional, I cannot say enough good things about them! Ashley and Lindsay were so helpful with the logistics of everything and so flexible to my changes! The hair and makeup trial was so fun and it made me so relaxed for my wedding day! When the day came, Serena and Beth were there right on time (actually early and beat some of my late bridesmaids!). They were fun to hang out with, had us laughing and relaxed through everything. The hair and makeup stayed throughout the night (which included lots of dancing!). Everyone looked beautiful! Thanks Up Do's!!!
I would like to thank the fabulous team at Up Dos for I Do's for making myself, my mom, and my bridesmaids feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day! Wedding planning can be extremely stressful, however their team of professionals made the process exciting and enjoyable!
The communication from their colleagues was timely and extremely thorough. I had my makeup trial with Beth, who answered all of my questions, and eased any apprehensions I had. She listened to how I envisioned my makeup and used her amazing talent to deliver exactly what I had hoped for and more. Beth was absolutely phenomenal!
Mindy styled both mine and my mom's hair the day of the wedding. Her artistry is evident not only in the end product, but throughout the entire process! Her ability to make her clients feel at ease is a result of her genuine personality! I was amazed at her speed and attention to every detail. My hair was absolutely perfect. I felt beautiful!
My mom, who has never treated herself to hair or makeup put her trust in both Beth and Mindy the day of the wedding! Seeing her reaction to both her makeup and her hair was one of the most rewarding sights. She looked beautiful! Her hair and makeup enhanced her natural beauty and most importantly I, as well as anyone in the room, could tell she felt fantastic about herself.
Up Dos for I Do's was such a pleasure to work with, it is evident their team of professionals hold themselves and one another to very high expectations. It is apparent through all aspects of your work! Thank you again for helping to make my wedding day perfect!

After meeting with Ashley and Lindsay at my hair and make-up trial, I knew they were going to be wonderful to work with on my wedding day. Prior to my wedding, I met with Lindsay for the spray tan trial and it was awesome! Lindsay came to my house a few days before my wedding to spray me and other members of my bridal party and friends - it was so convenient. Lindsay was AMAZING. She was great to work with, everyone loved her, she made it so much fun, and she was VERY patient with us - not to mention our tans looked great and very natural. It was the perfect kick-off to our wedding weekend!
Ashley and Lindsay came to the Four Seasons to do our hair and make-up and they couldn't have done a better job. Everyone absolutely LOVED their hair and make-up, especially me! They made me feel simply beautiful that day and the pictures are proof that they did such a wonderful job! My friends and family haven't stopped talking about how great everyone looked! They were so relaxed and really listened to exactly what everyone wanted. They were extremely efficient and fast - which was great, too!
I would 100% recommend Up Do's for I Do's and I hope that you are as lucky as I was to work with Lindsay and Ashley. Thanks, Ladies! :)
I used Up Do's For I Do's for my hair and spray tanning needs! I had tons of compliments on my hair as well as my bridesmaids hair from my guests. Everything was professional and timely every time I went to the studio. I loved the spray tan, it never even rubbed off on my dress!! I would like to thank Lindsay for making us all look beautiful on my big day!!!
Serena was my stylist for my April 5th wedding in Hyattsville, MD and I just wanted to say how wonderful she was! My hair was perfect! She talked through styles with all my bridemaids and everyone looked and felt great after she was done. I had a bridal trial beforehand, which was really fun. I brought in lots of pictures and we tried out a couple styles. It felt good to know exactly what I would look like in advance.
Up-Do's for I Do's is fantastic in that they came right to our suite to do all the hair & make-up on the day of my wedding. I loved not needing to find a salon in an area I wasn't familiar with, and we were able to relax in the room all afternoon while getting hair & make-up done. Lynda did our hair and Steffani did the make-up. They arrived early and I thought everything looked great. Steffani was a total sweetheart and even did very light make-up on my 13-year old junior bridesmaid. Lynda, while a little quirky, was so accommodating to everyone - she even started my hair over 3 times when we thought it wasn't looking exactly the same as it had during the trial. Until all is said and done it was a bit expensive (there is a travel fee and as you add lip gloss purchase and eyelashes it starts to really add up), but totally worth it to me to be able to relax and have hair & make-up come to me and my girls!
I was so pleased with the services I received from Up Do's for I Do's. Mindy was able to work with 7 completely different hair types, styles and personalities, and they all looked gorgeous. I could not have been happier with the way my hair and make-up turned out! All of my bridesmaids' hairstyles were stunning too. The on-location styling allowed me to relax and enjoy my day with my best friends with no extra traveling or hassle. Thank you so much!
Up-Do's for I Do's did an amazing job. They sent us Lindsay Shields, who met us at the hotel where we had our bridal preparations. She was fully prepared and even arrived early! I got to spend a lot of time with her before my bridal party met in my room to get ready and she kept me calm and collected on a crazy, overwhelming day! Not only did she do an incredible job on my (bride's) make up and the bridal party, but also my mom! My mother never wears make up so she was very reluctant to have it done, so Lindsay made sure she kept it natural and light Everyone's hair turned out beautiful too. Some girls were unsure of how they wanted their hair, so she even played around until it came out exactly how they wanted. Lindsay was super friendly and professional throughout the day. We had such an amazing experience and everyone looked absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend Up-Do's for I Do's to anyone looking for a great hair and makeup company!
I worked with Lindsey from Up Do for I do for my wedding. She was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. I did my consultation with her and she was able to create exactly what I had envisioned. She was extremely responsive to an emails/messages. During the day of the wedding, Lindsay and her assistant came to my hotel to do my, eight bridesmaids, a flower girl, my mother, my mother-in-law, and an additional family member's hair. Lindsay and Jess were there early and made sure everyone's hair looked perfect. They were also very flexible and did hair for an additional family member. All in all - I would highly recommend Up do for I Do for any event you have. They are very professional and a pleasure to work with!
I used Up-Do's for I Do's for my wedding in August, and I could not be any happier with their services!! Since then, I have told everyone I know that it is the most well-run and efficient business I have ever worked with, and it was an absolute delight dealing with Ashley and Lindsey via email (super-prompt responses!) and both the gals who did my hair and makeup on wedding day. I really felt like they cared about making it special. The whole experience, including the trial, was wonderful. In fact, I wasn't feeling confident about my first hair trial, so a few weeks later, I emailed them, and they brought me back for a second trial free of charge. Such great service! Everyone should use them :)
I used Up Do's in Baltimore to come to my hotel for hair & makeup for myself as well as several bridesmaids. They were early by 10-15 minutes which I so appreciated on the wedding day and this seems consistent with other reviews I had read when deciding to book them. Ashley who did our hair was extremely professional yet fun to be around, and super fast in doing updos for all the girls! She remembered exactly from my trial what we had done and this made actual wedding day so much less stressful. Stef did our makeup & was also fast & professional.
The only thing is that in the months leading to the wedding, several of the girls changed their mind about hair, makeup, or both so the contract was always changing. I had paid the final amount but whoever sends their billing emails messed it up initially and told me I still owed a certain amount; I had to look back and count how much I had paid and then told her in fact I did not think I owed any money. In the end I was right but with all the changes this happened at least 1 other time along the course of the months leading up to the wedding so I recommend any bride be on top of the payments and not to rely on others! However they were always quick to correct themselves & apologize & again the actual quality of the services on the day of were perfect!
I used Up Dos for I dos for my wedding!! Best Service! Best Stylist! Great Communication!!(very important for a bride) Great Experience!!
Not really a makeup kinda girl, so I wasn't really sure of the exact look I wanted but the make up stylist learned alot about me and then put some ideas together at the trial! LOVED IT!!
The hair stylist Serena, LOVE HER!!! I showed her a picture of the hair style and it was a done deal! She duplicated the picture exactly. She expolained how the style would change a littl but as my hair grew so I knew what to expect!!
On the day of, they showed up on time and were very professional!! They quickly worked on my bridemaids and my mother. Everyone looked great. They accomplished the looks I wanted for my girls perfectly!!
Before I got my make up done I kinda of threw a last minute detail in for my eyes. The make up artist has no problems, adjusted and completely gave me the look I wanted!! Serena, my hair stylist, nailed my hair style even beter than she did on the day of the trial. I only had my hair and make up done, and I was already crying lol!!
I will be forever greatful to my stylist as well as Up Dos for I Dos. The truely help make my day very magical! Thanks!!
Ashley and Steffani made my attendants and me look simply stunning on my wedding day! Their time with us was nothing but fun and completely without stress. They patiently listened to our concerns, hang-ups and wishes, and expertly turned us into the best versions of ourselves! The trial I had at the Up-Do’s studio in advance of my wedding date ensured that I was stress-free once I started to get ready on my wedding day.
The Up-Do’s staff is:
the two girls that came did a wonderful job! Everyone in my wedding looked so pretty and natural. I would recommend this company to anyone :)
I had seen the Up-Do's for I Do's booth at the Baltimore Bridal Expo and was amazed at how beautiful all of their example pictures were.
The price initially scared me and my bridal party away, but I ended up entering (and winning) and a facebook contest to have my hair and makeup done for free. A few of my girls chose to have their makeup done and it turned out gorgeous. Lindsay was early, so friendly, and did an absolutely wonderful job of making me look my best on my big day.
I found Up-Do's for I Do's through a girlfriend of mine that used them for her wedding. They were one of the few vendors in the Annapolis/Maryland area that were both reasonably priced and willing to travel to our location for hair and make-up services on the day of our wedding. We rented a small suite at a bed and breakfast next to our venue to get ready for the day, and Up-Do's for I Do's sent out two girls - one for hair and one for make-up. They were efficient and effective and I genuinely enjoyed spending the morning with them on the day of my wedding. My hair looked beautiful, my makeup looked natural (which was a big concern of mine - I am fair skinned with freckles and they did a great job of still letting my freckles show through), and overall they made me feel really beautiful on my wedding day. Gratuity was not required in our contract but we still offered the girls a nice tip at the end of the day.
The only thing that was a little strange was that the payment was required to be in cash on the day of service. I think this makes sense given that you might add people in at the last minute, etc, but with technology these days, and the fact that there were two company representatives on site to vouch for the number of services provided, you would think that you'd be able to use a credit card or "true-up" the payment owed at a later date.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We loved spending the day with you and your bridal party! Thanks for the note about the cash payment ~ We do accept credit card payments and personal checks 30 days prior to the big day! We just don't have ...
I had no idea what I wanted for my wedding hair and make-up. I set up a trial with Up-Do's for I Do's and Mindy and Caitlin were so great. We met in Vienna, VA. They knew just what to do with my hair and face. Mindy was very professional and always answered any questions via email that I had.
The day of the wedding the girls were on time and did such an amazing job. They came out to Leesburg, VA for the wedding. They were super friendly and on a stressful morning, I felt relaxed while getting make-up and hair done. It was me my maid of honor, and my mother who had hair and make-up done.
We were all clueless about make-up, but Caitlin knew exactly what to do for each of us. She is a perfectionist and an artist. I felt like a princess, my make-up was flawless! I recommend airbrush for the bride. It covered up every imperfection! My maid of honor and my mother looked stunning too! Thanks Caitlin!
Mindy was magical with our hair. She really is an artist too, more of a sculptor. She knew just where to put every hair to make us look fabulous! I showed up with a picture and she made me look even better than it.
Thanks ladies for being so amazing at what you do! You made us all feel beautiful that day!
Hooray! Thank you so much :) We loved being a part of your day!
Our experience with Ashley and Steffani from Up Dos For I Dos was amazing. So much so that the word “amazing” does not quite do it justice. At the end of the day, as a bride, our main concern is the final product and the price. Well stop looking for your makeup artist/hair stylist, because you have found them. You get what you paid for and so much more. Although not cheap, their pricing is definitely competitive and of all the corners to cut to save a dollar, this is not one of the ones you want to risk. Aside from the fact that their skills are unmatched and I looked absolutely flawless on my big day, I felt like Ashley and Steffani were just part of the wedding party, just old friends hanging out. We even tried to get them to stay for the ceremony and reception! Long story short, best best best decision I could have made in regards to the wedding planning and picking the right vendor. Thanks Ladies!!
We felt like old friends too! Thanks for the great review :)
Ashley and her team did an absolutely amazing job my wedding. They arrived early, took no time to set-up in the hotel suite and we were finished way ahead of schedule. The looks they gave each of the women who paid for hair and/or makeup were stunning and completely worth the value of the cost. Having the team come to you on your wedding day is such a huge perk too. It eliminates extra traveling, time and stress for the day. I cannot say enough great things about Up Do's for I Do. Their prompt business communication, professionalism and style make them an excellent and stress-free vendor to work with during your wedding planning. Choose them for your hair/make-up and you won't be disappointed!
