I scheduled an appointment for hair and makeup eight months in advance of my wedding- and scheduled a trial two months in advance. The stylist, although friendly, was seemingly very uncomfortable with up-dos. After five attempts to simply keep ...
my hair from falling (I have average hair, a bit longer than shoulder length), I suggested perhaps we take a break and try some makeup. Makeup took about 10 minutes, which is not what I expected given the premium price charged for bridal hair and makeup. I looked like I had dark circles under my eyes.
So, back to the hair - she ended up curling it and placed a single bobby pin in my hair. It fell out a few moments after leaving the salon. My eyeshadow disappeared, as well.
I am very grateful to have had the trial, so this didn't occur on the wedding day. For others that may have no other options, be sure to have a conversation in advance with your stylist and ask to see photos of their work. Best of luck!

I could not be happier with the services provided at Green Envy Salon for my wedding. The girls my bridesmaids worked with were all wonderful, and they did the most beautiful hair and makeup for my bridesmaids. From the moment I walked in, I im...
mediately felt in good hands. I worked specifically with Amanda, who I absolutely loved, and she did such an amazing job on my makeup, nails, and hair. She listened, and I felt like it all came out exactly as I had imagined and hoped it would. I was blown away. On the morning of the wedding, it went very smoothly. They were so thoughtful too, and they even had out coffee and orange juice for the bridal party. Thank you Green Envy Salon for making my wedding day go so smoothly and making me feel absolutely beautiful!

I used them for all my wedding beauty needs during the week leading up to my wedding and for the wedding itself: hair, makeup, facial, hair cut and color. I really enjoyed all their services and employees. I would give the makeup a 7/10, and ha...
ir 8.5/10. They use wonderful Aveda products but Aveda doesn't have any color-stay lipstick and the colors were quite nice but I wouldn't say a 100% slam-dunk. She was able to do a beautiful braid back to a low bun of sorts which was gorgeous, but did have a few pieces that fell out during dinner, so use lots of pins and spray! She listened to the vague notion of what I thought I wanted and was able to deliver!

If you're looking to schedule a hair or makeup appointment for a wedding - DO NOT book with Green With Envy!
After having issues with the salon I had booked hair and makeup services with for my June wedding, I reached out to Green With Envy to ...
see if they would be willing to help. I emailed back and forth with Chelsea, their wedding coordinator, and everything seemed to be going smoothly. Before even sending in my contract, I had her verify that they could do hair styling for myself, bridal party and my mom, and the time that we needed to be done by. Since we're having a morning wedding, I was worried that they couldn't pull the timeline off - but, Chelsea said they had the staff and could do it. I sent in my contract, which included my personal bank information, and Chelsea verified the receipt of it. We began discussing additional nail appointments and said she would get back to me shortly about a finalized time for when we could come in. At this point in time, I cancelled with my other salon. Come to find out, Chelsea cancelled on me a few days later saying that they never had the staff to do it and the start time was too early - details that she verified with me BEFORE I even sent my contract in.
My maid of honor took this over and has had a difficult time figuring the situation out. Customer service was super unprofessional and half the time they never returned phone calls, or even called when they said they would. On the phone, they were not understanding and didn't even seem to care that they literally screwed us over.
Whatever you do, DO NOT schedule any wedding services with this salon. I'm sure others have had good experiences, but I wouldn't even risk it. You might end up like us - completely out of options for hair and makeup for my wedding day. Worst experience I've ever had dealing with a hair salon.

ncredibly fun and patient, making any adjustments to hair that the bridesmaids suggested. They also took into consideration that we would be on a boat later that afternoon from the ceremony to reception site. They were also efficient with time, giving us enough time to take additional photos getting ready. The salon was also flexible in scheduling a trial with the same stylist who did my hair the morning of the wedding. Thank you Green with Envy for making me look and feel absolutely beautiful!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Green with Envy Salon. They are a relatively new salon located in Rockland, Maine. The package I decided to get was to rent out the salon for a half-day (which was 4 hours), which included hair and m...
ake-up for 8 girls. The salon also provided a fruit plate, water, and champagne and o.j. for mimosas. Not only are all the woman very friendly and super nice, but they are also incredibly talented. My pre-trial hair and make up were included in the package price and they did a wonderful job going over with me exactly what I wanted. I knew pretty much what I wanted to look like the day of my wedding, and they were so helpful in doing and redoing my hair and makeup until we both knew exactly what I wanted. This salon uses completely natural and organic products, which honestly isn't why I chose this salon, but it worked out great, as none of our hair looked crunchy or had that "helmet" look from too much product. The makeup used was the airbrush kind, which I had never used but absolutely loved it! Our makeup looked wonderful in pictures and stayed on the entire night. I loved this salon and wish it was actually located where I live, not just where I got married :) I highly recommend this salon to brides!
