I had my hair and makeup done by Jamie Lynn and Ally. They came to our wedding site and were so calm and easy going, it immediately relaxed me. Even though, I changed my hair and makeup on them at the last minute (different from what was decide...
d at the run through), they totally went with the flow and exceeded my expectations. They also had no problem doing hair and makeup for some of the wedding party who decided that day to get it done. They were great!

Vea did and awesome job doing my hair and even came to location which made it so much easier and less stressful. If I need my hair done for any other event I know where im going.

I went with Ally Scott from J Russell Salon in Palm Desert for my wedding hair and make up services. She was wonderful! Her and her team (Vea Serna and Courtney Warren)arrived on time and were fun, funny, and polite. We were all laughing and...
having a good time. They didn't seem to be rushing us along at all and yet we finished sooner than expected and looked like a million bucks! All of my girls LOVED how they looked...including the Moms. We just got access to our professional photos and even after a looooong day in warm weather, we all still looked great. I couldn't have been any happier with their service!
She had the girls bring in inspiration photos of looks we liked and gave us exactly what we requested. They were good about offering suggestions to make us look even better.
I met with Ally a couple of months before my wedding for a trial run and was so pleased. She understood the exact look I was going for. She took tons of photos of my hair and make up from different angles, as well as the products used and created a file of me on her phone so that on the day of, she had no doubts about what she did before and was able to recreate it. She also asked me to let her know how my hair and make up held up after the trial so she could make any adjustments necessary for the wedding. ((If you can, doing a trial run for your hair and make up is a must. That way you won't have any surprises on your wedding day.))
Their rates were reasonable and they even came to the hotel we were staying at which was huge because trying to get 8 girls plus 2 Moms to a salon would have been crazy.
If you go with her, please let her know that Jackie, her May 4, 2013 bride referred you :)
I also want to add that Mandy Gomez was so sweet and helpful with getting everything scheduled for my wedding services. She is the bridal appointment coordinator. My whole experience with J Russell was just great!
