Michelle and her were nothing less than perfect. I was impressed with how organized she was. It showed that she has been doing this for a long time. From the first moment that I meet her I knew that I found the right person. I had one other trial before I found Michelle and it... Read More was quit aggravating. The trial with Michelle was great, she listened to me and knew the right moments when to give a suggestion. On the day of the wedding she and her team arrived right on time and finished everyone before the time that I asked to be done. Myself and everyone in my wedding looked amazing. Thank you Michelle, Jenny, and Lisa.

Working with Hairs 2 the Bride was a absolute pleasure! I was in contact with Michelle for about 8 months working out all the details for my wedding. Michelle did a great job keeping in touch with me and helping me to stay on track with things she needed from me. I was a...

The work they did the day of my wedding for me, my girls and my mom was wonderful! Everyone was pleased and we all looked great long into the night! Loved working with Hairs 2 the Bride!

I honestly can not say enough about how wonderful our experience was with Hairs 2 the Bride.

I was straggling to write this review and didn't want to do it at all but I probably need to add my comment and explain why it is not a well rated review. First of all, I got lucky to have my friend who was basically telling Liz (the woman who did my makeup and hair) how she... Read More needs to do it and what she needs to change/add, it was not very clean makeup at all. She was not very creative at all, one of my friend is Asian and she requires a different approach with her makeup, she didn't think about it at all and the color of lipstick she used for my of them went to the bathroom right away to take it off...too bright and photographer was at this moment with us and even she told me that I need to correct my eyes because it looks uneven. The worse part of this service was the eye makeup that she did to my mom. I asked her to do a very light makeup, when I looked in 5 min at my mom, I didn't know what to say at was ridiculous. I was not able to handle it and told her right away that she needs to redo it!!! I wish I have a picture of this disaster. Last part: my hair. I did a trial and it was good, on the day of the wedding she was not organize and in a hurry to finish with me so she didn't do a good job with making sure that it is fixed and would be able to stay as it is for the whole day. Unfortunately, I couldn't attached the picture where you can see that after 10-15 min of me walking out of the room it is not perfect and ruined. My friend who is getting married next year was planning to use them for her wedding told me next day that she changed her opinion and I am happy with this decision, don't want her to have the same experience.
