Erica and her team are absolutely amazing! They're extremely professional, accommodating and ON TIME! One of the biggest complaints I've heard from other brides is that their makeup and hair artists would come late and hold up the whole day - so it was important for me to find a... Read More team that wouldn't slow everything down. Needless to say, Erica and her team were early by 5-10 minutes for both trial and wedding day. I originally knew of Erica who did my makeup as a bridesmaid for my friends wedding. Had a great experience and rapport and kept her in mind for my wedding 3 years later! I had my trial in June (my wedding day in September) and I specifically did it that day because I was attending an outdoor wedding so as to test how everything would hold up if it were my wedding and in the heat. Makeup was flawless the whole night and hair didn't budge :) Morning of my wedding, like I mentioned, they were 5 minutes early and set up promptly. Erica did makeup and Crystal did hair along with 2 others on their team - there was 10 of us to be done in a short period of time, so we had an army! Hair and makeup were prepped and then finalized. Makeup and lash application was seamless and hair was incredibly on point! I must say that I think my makeup and hair looked 10x better the day of than the trial so you can expect something even more wonderful the day of your wedding. Erica and Crystal are easy to talk to and fun fun fun! All the women in my bridal party loved their hair and makeup as well as my mother - and she's a hard woman to please :) All our family and friends were complimenting our hair and makeup the whole day! Most important thing to add and take into consideration! -- Because makeup is airbrushed, I asked Erica about tears and what to do. She said, "You catch that tear before it falls!" While I tried my best, it was hard during vows. My now husband said my face looked scary where the tears streaked down, but he said within a matter of seconds, everything blended in and didn't leave a trace! I didn't even need to touch up on anything :) So that tellsl you just how great of quality products they use and how well they apply it. As if this couldn't get any longer, they come highly recommended! It is money and time well spent to have this team take care of you - because they will.

THE BEST hair & make up artists EVER!!! I booked my h&m with Nikki and Erica for my wedding one year in advance.

I loved my h& m for my trial (which I booked for my engagement pictures) and day of my wedding. I can't say enough about Erica and Nikki.

I felt like they were a part of my bridal party and family! They even helped my bridesmaids get ready (tied the sashes on the back of their dresses). My h&m lasted all day and it was beautiful. Erica & Nikki did a phenomenal job! I would highly recommend them and would use them again for h&m for formal events! Thanks again Erica & Nikki!!!

Fast forward to the week of- Erica helped me while I was stressing trying to figure out the itinerary for wedding day, and she made sure to leave enough time for getting ready (5 hours for me+8 other girls) so we weren't rushed. Day of the wedding, Erica and Crystal were timely again and very organized in how they set up in the wedding suite. They were so much fun to get ready with and especially Erica is able to adapt to the crowds level of energy. They were good sports about "dealing with" me and my group of friends who are the opposite of girly, and were able to guide us when we had questions (or difficulty with sitting still! Lol). My girls asked me where I found this company and commented they have never felt prettier. I got so many compliments, and my hair/makeup stayed allllll day until the after-party despite a few tears here and there! They were one of the best vendors and easy to work with of all the vendors we hired too.

Erica and Crystal, THE BEST MAKEUP AND HAIR ever! I have never gotten so many compliments before.

They are so funny, calm and knowledgeable, just the kind of people I definitely wanted to have around during those pre hours of the ceremony. Erica was there for me beyond a makeup artist but became a friend, someone I could call and confide in when the planning process became a bit too much. I honestly could go on forever raving about Erica and Crystal. And the trials were very helpful, they offered the opportunity to see if we meshed well, and provided a vision for day of. It was hands down the best decision I made during my planning process and worth every single penny.
