Hailey made me look natural but everything popped in the perfect way. Every single woman in my bridal party and both mothers looked gorgeous after Hailey finished their makeup. Also, the makeup lasted beautifully from 8 AM until everyone went to bed at midnight! Hailey is also a delight to get to sit and chat with so it made the morning getting ready fun, relaxed and easy.

Review Spotlight: "Victoria did the hair for my wedding and the rest of the wedding party. Victoria was wonderful to work with and took the time to understand what each person was looking for. She shared suggestions to make sure the desired outcome was achieved. I would recommend a trial as it gave me a chance to see how long the curl would hold. Victoria followed up after the trial and suggested a few changes. I trusted Victoria's opinion and knowledge. The day of hair was even better than the trial.
