Tamra and Thea were so amazing for our morning. They both arrived early and set up, they even waited around past schedule while we ran a rehearsal that ran into their timelines. They are extremely professional and wonderful to be around. My makeup was AMAZING, it lasted the entire evening without a hiccup. I was so impressed and felt beautiful all evening. My bridesmaids were very impressed and they all looked lovely as well. I will definitely be using these ladies in the future for any event!

Review Spotlight: "After reading Katy's reviews and looking at her pictures a little over a year ago I knew I had to hire her for my wedding. Something you could probably already tell from Katy's pictures is that she is extremely talented. Something you probably wouldn't know from looking at her pictures is that she's extremely kind and easy to work with. Katy and her momager Yvonne are the tag team duo that every business needs, working with them was effortless! I am a highly anxious person especially when it comes to my hair and makeup. Katy was so easy to talk to and had such a calming presence, which made my anxiety melt away. During my trial Katy listened to my very specific requests and brought the vision in my head to life. At the end of my trial she didn't just throw all of her stuff in her bag and shoo me out the door but she asked my opinion on the different aspects of my hair and makeup. She then walked through some of the changes that we could make on my wedding day if I decided I didn't like anything. Katy then changed my hair at the end of my trial for my engagement shoot and the reaction I received from my then fiancé was so reassuring! On the wedding day, Katy and her makeup artist Tara made getting ready extremely easy and fun. All of my bridesmaids loved Katy and Tara and couldn't stop taking pictures when their hair and makeup was done. Most of my bridesmaids were only getting hair but decided to add makeup at the last minute. Katy and Tara were able to pivot and make sure everyone had their hair and makeup done without sacrificing the quality of their work. Thank you Katy for making me and my bridesmaids look and feel so beautiful."

Review Spotlight: "When looking for a makeup/hair artist, I wanted to find someone who knew how to work with tan skin and provide a natural look. I NEVER wear makeup and in the past as a bridesmaid, I have generally been disappointed with the work as it was always over the top and I never felt like I looked like myself. Brooke did such an amazing job listening to my requests and concerns and absolutely aced my makeup.All of our wedding party was SO happy with the work. Nobody had to secretly go touch up or remove the makeup (we've all been there at some point), as everyone was so pleased with her work. Amber did our hair and also did such a great job. She was so patient as I flip flopped between styles from my trial to my actual wedding day. I highly recommend blush 'n bangs for affordable and very talented makeup and hair artists!"

Review Spotlight: "So great! I used my bridal portraits as my trial for my hair and makeup, and everything was great! On the wedding day, they listened to my suggestions about things that did and didn't work and I really felt like they made adjustments accordingly. All of my bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning, but they still looked like themselves. Every girl was given customized make up and hair to accentuate their features, rather than just using the same products and colors on everyone. I would definitely recommend Adore! We had 4 artists on my wedding day and everyone looked equally as beautiful, I don't think you can go wrong with anyone at Adore!"

Review Spotlight: "Codie was one of my favorite vendors for the wedding! My hair and makeup turned out beautiful and she truly made me feel like a goddess. However, one of the qualities that I loved most about her was her personality and customer service. I was pretty nervous about several of my beauty issues and how it would affect the look that I wanted (melasma and straight hair that doesn't like to stay curled). She went above and beyond to make me feel at ease. She was the only HAMU artist that actually talked to me before we booked and answered ALL of my questions and concerns. I went into my wedding day confident and she did not disappoint. Her team arrived on time and did an amazing job with my LARGE bridal party (9 bridesmaids plus 2 moms). Even though my bridesmaids ran late, Codie kept me calm and even gave me a fun kit of makeup to keep me looking fabulous throughout the wedding. I am so happy that we went with her!! Definitely make sure to add her to your vendor list!"

Working with Anastasia was a fun and wonderful experience, everyone was so nice and really helped calm my wedding day nerves. The most important part about my makeup was that I still looked like myself (My now husband was so worried that he wouldn't recognize me and that I wouldn't look like myself on our wedding day). Anastasia and her team made sure I still looked like me, but also elegant and special. The makeup lasted the whole night while I was dancing in the humidity, and still looked good at 1 a.m.! All of my bridesmaids also looked beautiful. The team really focused on bringing everyone's natural beauty out. If natural make up is your style, then look no further and book Anastasia now!"
