Furthered my visionReviewed on 9/18/2013 Kristin K
I knew the look I was going for on my wedding day and Appease hair/makeup helped make that happen. I had some particular major problems with my skin on my wedding day that they were able to hide- I was so grateful for their expertise. They were also really fun and willing to change things that I and my bridesmaid weren't totally happy about.
I LOVED ITReviewed on 8/13/2013 Anna S
I loved the stylist, she was amazing. My makeup was great, I loved it the most because I still looked like myself just with great makeup, and my hair was also great. I loved my makeup because even after all the dancing, my makeup still looked great.
Very happy with AppeaseReviewed on 11/05/2012 Audrey P
I was a little worried about using a "company" for our hair and makeup. But I was proven wrong. Carla did the hair for my entire bridal party and mine and my mom's makeup. I was INCREDIBLY pleased with how it turned out. Before planning my wedding, I had no idea this was a whole industry. Carrie was great in working with me to answer all my questions pre-wedding. Carla came to do a trial with me and really listened to my ideas and feedback. She is truly an artist. We were so happy we chose Appease. They were affordable and very talented.
Such an awesome company to work with!! Everyone was really friendly and responded quickly to my emails. I had Laura for my hair and makeup, and she was so amazing and talented!! She came to me and the prices were incredibly reasonable! I definitely recommend them for any occasion!
Beautiful hair and make-upReviewed on 12/05/2015 Heather T
Carrie was wonderful. She did my hair and make-up like I wanted, and it was beautiful. My hair and make-up stayed put the entire day, and looked wonderful in my photographs. She was very friendly, and was on-time getting to the hotel the day of my wedding. She also did hair for my bridesmaids and flower girls that came out wonderfully and also stayed put for the entire day. I can't thank her enough for bringing out my natural beauty to make me look and feel great on my wedding day!
Originally I was booked with Carrie but her husband surprised her with a vacation the weekend of my wedding reception. I slightly was freaking out on the inside but you just need to have a little faith. Laura ended up doing my hair and make up as well as my sisters. Laura was super nice and attentive! My make up looked amazing. One side of my lipstick was higher than the other but I ended up fixing it since she left. Red lipstick is tricky.
I used Carrie and Carla for my wedding in May and was admittedly a little skeptical about booking them for my wedding having never used them previously. That being said, I was extremely pleased with how everything came out and am so happy that I took the leap of faith on them From the trial run, where they invited me to their salon or offered to come to me they did a great job of asking questions and understanding what I wanted in my wedding day look. They asked for several pictures and really nailed the hair and make up that I wanted. They arrived on-time for our wedding day and even got ahead of schedule as they completed all of the bridesmaids looks! My makeup was just like I imagined and even though the initial updo on my wedding day wasn't "perfect" she was more than happy to make the adjustments that I requested so that I was happy. After Carrie was done she was even offered to run to the front desk at the hotel to meet my florist so that I didn't need to run down there myself.... she really went above and beyond. If you're looking for a service to come to you and that can do your entire bridal party you can't go wrong with Appease!!
We used Appease for both our hair and makeup for all the bridesmaids, the bride and the mothers. To say people were impressed would be an understatement. Throughout the entire night and after the wedding we all got tons of compliments on how beautiful we looked and we owe most of that to the ladies of Appease. Thank you for making me look my best on the most special day of our lives!
I would not recommend working with this company. They put me through a lot of unnecessary stress chasing them down and trying to figure out details with them. The day of my wedding, the makeup/hair people were also mean and rude for reasons I still don't understand. All of my other vendors seemed like they just love working with people to make their day special, but this was the opposite at Appease, I just don't think they care much about it at all, they just want to make money. If you want to avoid stress on your wedding day I would avoid working with Appease.
~$600 down the drain.Reviewed on 6/08/2015 Yuliya P
Nightmare. (Chicago) I honestly can't believe they have so many positive review on here. Booking: I booked them because answered my initial questions quickly - once I put down the $100 deposit that all changed. I filled out their questionnaire and sent it back to them within a week (2 months before wedding) I emailed them 3 weeks later asking if they had received it. Nothing. Again emailed them - nothing. Third time their reply was "we can't open it" I resent it again but it was obvious that they didn't bother reading it because I had asked a few questions and none of them were answered. I then had to email them over and over asking the same questions to get a response - about 3 different people would email me telling me they were my "contact" then a new person would email me asking me to provide info that I had already provided several times! They told me they were busy with 14 weddings and thats why they didn't have time to answer my questions - its great that you're busy but if you're not doing a good job and your clients are suffering then maybe you have too many clients. Also you had 3 months to answer my questions so 14 weddings one weekend isn't really an excuse. Day of (Amanda & Kaiilez) they told me they had to show up at 7 am day of because they had another wedding right after - not ideal because my wedding wasn't until 1 pm and I am not a morning person but I because I had no other choice. They showed up at 7 am and told me they have 30 mins per person - they were done by 10 am and then were like "oh the other wedding isn't until way later" ...so why did you come so early then!? Hair - the hair person was nice-ish, she asked me for my inspiration picture (a picture I had sent over with my questionnaire that she obviously had not looked at) I showed it to her - down, big waves. She then started to curl my hair - about halfway through I was like...so how does this turn into waves? I showed her the picture again - she said " you should have told me you wanted waves earlier, because I would have done it differently" .... um WHAT? I showed you a picture! I was pretty upset. She tried to do some wavy/curly mixture on the top layers- I had fixed it all after she left. Makeup- this was the worst of it all. I had specifically talked to them and wrote in my questionnaire that I have really dry skin and can't wear foundation because it flakes off - but don't really need it anyway because my skin is really even. I just wanted concealer under my eyes and a creamy blush (I was planning on doing my own eye makeup anyway). I told this all again to the makeup girl - she said "you should do airbrush, its only 10$ more".....I said "well I really cannot wear ANY foundation" (I have tried it all, even airbrush, all flakes off) She said ok but was huffy about it. After my hair was done she asked me to take a towel to my face to make sure I didn't have hairspray on my skin so that the foundation wouldn't streak..... I kind of just stared at her again NO foundation was requested! She seemed annoyed with me and was so rude to my bridesmaids telling them that "beauty is pain" when she hurt one of their necks by pushing on their face too hard....Also her makeup/brushes looked GROSS. I just left the room and asked my mom to tell her I wouldn't be needing her services. I doubt they will refund me for the makeup session I didn't get. This is not a company I would EVER want to work with again.

Loved working with carrie, jen and jonathan. Best to work with!!! Good communication. Great personalities and great work!
Great Partner for you Wedding Day!!!!Reviewed on 2/15/2015 Brie M
I could not be more happy and pleased with my hair and makeup wedding services from Appease! Cathy did an amazing job with my hair and was so willing to work with me to make sure I was happy. Laura did a great job with my makeup as well! I felt like I still looked like myself just a little more glamorous which is exactly what I wanted! Cathy, Laura and Carla also did a great job with all the bridesmaids, moms, flower girls and grandmas...all in all they did 12 people and everything went smoothly. I received so many compliments at my wedding and requests for who provided the service. Again, a HUGE thank you to the Appease team for making my day magical and exactly like I hoped!
Budget Friendly & ProfessionalReviewed on 2/02/2015 Monica P
I absolutely love working with appease and Iris who did our hair and make up for the bridal party. Everyone looked beautiful. I couldn't ask for a better person to work with than Iris. She just has an eye and understanding for what your looking for and makes it come alive. I couldn't be more happier with my choice of hair and make up on our wedding day. Thank you appease! Monica
Mel and Jonothan, what a NY/NJ team!Reviewed on 1/04/2015 Tracy M
Getting married in the NYC area can be stressful and your hair and makeup are an integral part of your day. Everyone is staring at you all day long! I scheduled a trial with Appease after reading some reviews online. I was a little hesitant at first because there were tons of reviews in Chicago but not many in NY. NO FEAR though... Appease was professional and amazing!! Mel (hair) and Jonothan (makeup) came to my house on the day of my trial. They are both very sweet and personable. I showed Mel a few pics of what I envisioned and she created it! I loved it. I also debated with two hairpieces and she contributed her opinion. Love me some honesty! Jonothon is a doll! I told him that I wanted to look natural, but with a J. Lo glow (Hehe) and he made my face flawless! I took pictures after both treatments were done and I made sure to take notes of what I wanted to tweak. I sent my notes to Appease and they were acknowledged the day of the wedding. My hair and makeup also came out better than the day of the trial!! Professional, friendly, and affordable! My bridesmaids enjoyed their services too!
Great Quality and ValueReviewed on 10/22/2014 Alexandra T
I would highly recommend Appease to any NYC bride. The ease of having at home service on the day of was invaluable. When I wasn't happy with my first hair trial, Carrie (who was great with email correspondence) quickly sent me another stylist free of charge and I loved her. Jasmine my new stylist, did a fantastic job on the day of with both my hair and my bridesmaids'. My hair looked exactly like the picture I sent her, and didn't move an inch, an amazing fete considering the extremely windy weather. Jonathon did my make-up, and gave me the natural (albeit enhanced) look I was going for. Like, Jasmine, he was extremely personable, and set the whole party at ease. My only issue, was that not enough time was built into the schedule to accommodate all of my 3 girls' up-do requests. Fortunately, for a nominal fee, Jasmine was able to travel with us to the venue and finish up. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as she was able to help out with last minute touch-ups before the ceremony began. Overall, I was thrilled with my experience and can't thank them enough.
just hire themReviewed on 10/15/2014 elizabeth M
They were amazing, really accommodating and so nice. I danced all night and my hair stayed perfect, as well as my makeup. They listen to the bride, and the wedding party, and they are extremely helpful
Pricey, but fabulous outcomeReviewed on 10/06/2014 Jill P
I loved my make up artist Janessa. She listened and did exactly what I wanted. She was knowledgeable and professional and a sweet person. I did not care for the fact that the owner did not allow me to tip my stylist with cash. Instead she charged my credit card for the tip portion. I would have preferred to ensure giving my stylist cash to ease my peace of mind that she was compensated adequately for her good work. $70 for a trial, and $130 for wedding day make up (air brush) was a bit pricey, but it came out beautiful and I received so many compliments.
Fabolous!Reviewed on 9/10/2014 Paola C
They were amazing! Their service went beyond my expectations and will definitively recommend to other brides! Awesome!
Happy Bride! Thanks Appease!Reviewed on 8/13/2014 Pamela O
I contacted Appease four days before my wedding after my previously hired hair and make-up person showed an amount of unprofessionalism I could no longer take (i.e. charging us more than they said originally, changing our end time, etc.) Carla and Carrie came to the rescue and couldn't have been more phenomenal! They are an organized business and listened to what I wanted and made sure they could offer it before scheduling me and my bridal party. On the day of the wedding, they were on time, listened to the bridal party and what they wanted, and were personable and easy to work with. All the girls looked awesome! Also, even though one of the girls initially had said she only wanted hair done because she never liked any make-up services she had received before, after seeing the others with their make-up, she changed her mind; Carla agreed to do her make up too and did a great job (the bridesmaid said it was the first time she ever got her make-up professionally done and actually liked it). Before taking off they touched up a few things the girls asked for (ie re-do curl, bobby pin piece of hair, etc.), gave us a little powder and lipstick to touch up our make-up in case we felt we needed it, and put my veil on for me (I was nervous to mess up my hair). So nice! Our photographers noticed how well they did and what great customer service they had and even asked us what the company name was so they could refer future brides to them. You can't go wrong with these two!
BEAUTIFULReviewed on 3/19/2014 Melissa J
Carla did an amazing job on our hair and makeup. She asked questions to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. Emails and phone calls were answered promptly and she was very professional. She was very accommodating by doing my trial on a day that they normally don't. I would definitely recommend Appease!
Wedding Hair and MakeupReviewed on 11/20/2013 Janice M
We used Appease Inc for our wedding day makeup and hair services. LOVE the fact that they travel to your location, it makes things a lot easier then going to a place when you are already running all over the place the morning of! I spoke with Appease mostly through email. Sometimes they were fast at responding and sometimes it took a little time for them to get back to me. We originally only had 2 girls coming for Hair and Makeup and they made a schedule for us starting at 6AM when our ceremony was at 2:30PM! When I asked if another girl to come for hair, they were flexible and added another girl making the start time at 8AM instead, which was a lot better! We had Carrie and Stephanie for hair and Kim for makeup. They all were on time. Carrie did my hair and it turned out great and beautiful and exactly how I wanted it! However, a few curls came loose within a couple hours. :( Carrie also did, along with Stephanie, the bridesmaids hair. Majority of the girls loved how their hair turned out. Kim was awesome, absolutely loved how my makeup turned out! You can tell she is a perfectionist - which is great because everyone wants to be near perfect on their wedding day! THANK YOU APPEASE!
Blushing Bride PackageReviewed on 10/09/2013 Colleen C
The Blushing Bride Package was worth it on so many levels! Massage, mani-pedi, hair, and makeup! Everyone I worked with was amazing and friendly. My makeup and hair trial was at their Lombard location which is beautiful. I would recommend them to everyone, even those who aren't getting married.
Amazing Airbrush ServicesReviewed on 9/01/2013 Jen
Carla did a great job with my airbrush make-up. She was very professional and very friendly.
Great serviceReviewed on 7/16/2013 Aimee S
We were very happy with how our hair and makeup was done for the wedding day. Carrie and Carla were great to work with, they did a great job.
Good for the priceReviewed on 7/03/2013 Jillian O
Appease was one of the very few vendors I could find for hair and makeup for a bride + 2 for under $750. I think I paid about $500 overall. My artist was very friendly, the trial went great. She came to my apartment and we had fun chatting while she created a beautiful hair and make up style for me. The day of, she came to the hotel where we were getting ready and started with a bridesmaid who wears almost no make up. The makeup on this bridesmaid was done pretty heavily, despite her request for extremely light makeup, so she ended up removing a lot of it. She did a great job on the second person. My hair and makeup turned out lovely, but the hair wasn't the style we had done in the trial. I couldn't see this until it was finished and too late, which was frustrating. The style was pretty, just not what we had planned. Both the updo and makeup held up very well throughout the night, which was great.
