They arrived at my venue while we were at breakfast and were ready for us as soon as we got back. We were ahead of schedule and had time to relax before getting dressed. Everyone looked and felt amazing. Thank you, La Pomponnee!

The ladies of La Pomponnee are truly beauty artisans! Kristen and Louise made my bridal hair and make up dreams come true! I have never felt more beautiful than after La Pomponnee dolled me up, and my bridesmaids all looked and felt their best!...

I was so obsessed with how my hair looked on the day of my wedding, and I did not think it was possible for me to be that happy with my hair! In addition to Kristen, La Pomponnee provided a deep bench of talent to pull from for my wedding party. I had a large wedding party (8 bridesmaids, 2 mothers of the bride/groom and 3 junior bridesmaids), and Kristen and her associates did such an amazing job on each person. Everyone was thrilled with how their hair looked!

an up-do. This has not proved to be an easy task when getting my hair done for several weddings I've been a part of over the years. I showed up to the initial consultation with several photos of what I had in mind, and Kristen worked with my hair like she had hundreds of times before! She envisioned exactly what I wanted (and didn't want) on my wedding day, and she NAILED IT. And Paige is a rockstar! The whole team was wonderful - they worked quickly to make sure each of my friends looked and felt flawless on my wedding day. This was very important to me, as my bridesmaids had travelled far distances, and done so much for me leading up to this day! The whole morning-of experience was quite possibly the best of the entire day - a fun day spent getting pampered with my best friends. The team of talented artists at La Pomponneé made us all feel at ease and absolutely gorgeous. Brides, look no further! You deserve to look as good as La Pomponneé will make you feel on the morning of your wedding :) Shout out to Kristen and Paige, who did my hair and make up! xoxo, Alexis

Kristen, Spencer and Amy made sure that my whole bridal party felt comfortable and got exactly what they wanted, from intricate up-dos to braids to curls.

ry time I go into the salon I feel very welcome. The team works as a well-oiled machine. It’s truly impressive to watch! For our wedding day, Gabby did my hair to perfection and Paige did a beautiful, natural make up look. The girls are friendly, and they really listened to what I envisioned for the day. They exceeded my expectations in every way—I felt so beautiful! I continue to see Gabby every 6 weeks for my cuts and colors. My sister, sisters-in-law, mother-in-law, and I will also be having the girls do our hair and makeup for our reception in the spring!
UPDATE: The bridal team at La Pomponnee has done it again! I am a regular La Pomponnee client (shout out to Gabby who wonderfully maintains my style and color!). My husband and I eloped in October (see review #1 above!), and we had a cocktail reception this March to celebrate. Before the reception, I had hair and makeup done for a group of five women including myself. Kristen, Gabby, and Paige took such good care of us. They came to the venue and did everything on-site in just a few hours, and we had a blast while getting glammed up. The girls listened to what we wanted, and boy did they deliver! My sister-in-law has lots of long, thick hair, which she really wanted curled but wasn’t sure if it would hold. Kristen was up for the challenge, and she made the vision come to life. We were calling my SIL Beyoncé—the curl looked AMAZING and really held up. All five of us could not have been happier with how beautiful everything turned out, and the hair and makeup lasted all night through eating, drinking, dancing, and lots of smiles/hugs/kisses. Look no further than La Pomponnee for your bridal party beauty!

en, and she did a wonderful job with my hair. I used extensions the day of my wedding an she was able to make them blend perfectly with my hair so no one could tell (everyone kept commenting on how they couldn't believe how long my hair looked when I loosened the curls - I have really curly natural hair). She also did an amazing job on my bridesmaids hair! She used the hairstyle I picked out and put her own twist on it, giving each bridesmaid a slight variation of the same style, which I loved!
Luisa did my make-up and several of my bridesmaids make-up, as well, and I absolutely loved it. She made my skin look flawless and my eyes pop! Thanks to her, I photographed great! She also was exceptionally nice and open to absolutely any suggestions (I had quite a few). She didn't get frustrated when I wanted to change things and was actually excited for the challenge.
I got endless compliments on both my make-up and hair, and was 100% satisfied. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.
They are a bit pricey, but they do quality work for sure, and I think it was worth every penny.
