I trialed my makeup with Sam for my engagement photoshoot. I had already had a makeup artist booked for my 3/22 wedding, but I figured, why not? After my trial with Sam, I immediately cancelled my contract with the other artist (cost me my $200...
deposit, so read your contracts carefully) because I loved how Sam made me look! She also seemed really genuine and like she cared for me as a person, not just a client.
This held true when my husband and I had to cancel our 3/22 bash and get married in a small ceremony the day before. Sam was going to still do my makeup for the 3/22 wedding, but I called her at 1PM on the day of our new wedding date and asked if she would be able to come to my apartment and do my makeup. Sam was at my apartment by 2:30 and had me ready by 3:30. I am SOOOO thankful I booked Sam, because honestly, I don’t know of many people who would literally drop everything he/she was doing the way Sam did.
Sam was available for my 3/21/20 date, my 8/27/20 date, as well as my 3/21/21 date. Thank the Lord because on my actual 3/21/21 bash, Sam made me look soooooo gorgeous! I don’t know how she does it, but she did it! She was also extremely timely. My first bridesmaid was set to have her makeup done at 8AM, and at 8AM on the dot, Sam started with her. We were also all ready early, which my photographer really appreciated! I love Sam and I will continue to use her for all of the special occasions I’ll need my makeup done for!
I booked Jess through La Belle Visage to do my hair. I had two trials with her, and she does amazing hair!! I am so picky when it comes to my hair, and I did not have to worry with Jess. I had to postpone my wedding from 3/22/20 to 8/27/20 to 3/21/21 and Jess was available on each of those dates. I am so thankful she was, because I don’t think I would have trusted anyone else to do my hair!
My first trial I asked for an updo, and it was beautiful! I started having second thoughts, not because of Jess’s work, but because I am crazy about my hair, and did another trial with Jess. She did a gorgeous half-up-half-down look. About a month before my wedding reception, I texted Jess asking her if I could just let her know what I want the day of. I was nervous because I have thick, course, frizzy hair, and I wasn’t sure what the weather was going to be like. She assured me that she could work with whatever I threw at her.
The day of my wedding reception, I was a nervous wreck thinking about my hair. I told Jess how nervous I was because I couldn’t envision what I wanted (I showed her a picture) on myself. Again, Jess assured me that she could do whatever I showed her. Jess did NOT DISAPPOINT!!! I was so nervous about my hair, but Jess made me look so beautiful. I also danced all night and my hair looked exactly as it did at 10:30AM all the way up to when I went to sleep at 2AM the next day!! True story – when my husband and I were looking at our wedding photos, he said, “wow, your hair looks freakin awesome” so Jess, THANK YOU!
