212 Salon and Day Spa was the one and only place I trusted to make my bridal party look like princesses on my wedding day. For context, I was the type of bride that researched at least 6 vendors before picking “the one”. I had followed the development of 212 Salon and Day... Read More Spa from before they opened their doors. I am lucky enough to live down the street from them, so I could literally see their progress each day. When they opened, I couldn’t wait to check the place out. The owners were incredibly kind and professional, and gave me a tour right at the get go. They were honest—the bridal suite wasn’t quite ready when I toured—but they assured me that they would make it perfect in time for my wedding. I trialed with my maid of honor at 212 in late April for my August wedding. To say we were blown away is an understatement. For context, I have very straight and elastic Asian hair. While my hair is “easy”, it’s rather difficult to make it do anything beyond be straight. Jeana, however, is a wizard. When I met her, I knew I was in good hands. She has a warm, open, and loving personality. She also has MANY years of experience under her belt for bridal updos on all kinds of hair. About 45 minutes, 87 pins and a rubberband later, my hair was just like what you see in bridal magazines and on Pinterest. My makeup was done by Irene. A week after my trial, she called to see how the makeup withstood the day. She also wrote down every product she used on my skin so she'd be prepared for my wedding day. Did I mention that Jeana volunteered to drive to my wedding venue on the day of my wedding so she could switch my headpiece and remove my veil? Yeah—that happened. This was all just for the trial! These people do NOT mess around when it comes to making you look perfect. On the day of my wedding, the room was ready like they promised. Jeana had found my engagement photos on my photographer’s website, and prepared a framed photograph of my husband and me for the room. I had a party of 7 girls and myself, all needing some variety of hair and/or makeup. We were in and out in about 4 hours, looking beautiful for the day. That in itself is very impressive. It says something about the group of stylists that works so well together as a team to get my many varieties of girls looking incredible in that short amount of time. If you want a place that gives you the personal and honest touch, this is the place to go. I can’t wait to make this my go-to salon from here on out.
