e work these 2 did to make me feel beautiful on my wedding day- so I stuck to my stars rating based on overall experience
Overall, Larissa lake’s stylists did a wonderful job on my wedding day. I had 8 bridesmaids and 2 mothers that had services done as well. All of the stylists were very nice and friendly. There were a couple things that prevented me from scoring 5 stars. One is that my 6 year old niece who was a flower girl- was upcharged as a junior bridesmaids without my knowledge- none of the stylists had even asked me about it- I’ve been told I will be getting s refund for this- but that was over 2 weeks ago and I haven’t received it.
Another is the fact that I had so many girls, and had to pay quite a bit for them to send an extra stylist so that we didn’t have to start 10 hours before my ceremony. We also got behind in schedule because many girls needed touch ups on their hair- and one of my girls had to have hers completely redone because it fell out so fast. Another turn off was that when they were calculating tips (which they charge an automatic 20% ) they needed everything down to the PENNIES. This seemed outrageous for how much we were already paying - and left many of my girls frustrated. I ended up covering the remaining balance since many of my girls didn’t expect to pay so much the day of. As incredible as we all looked, I wish I had really looked into their details before booking them. $385 for the bride, $100 for hair trial, $100 for makeup trial, tips, $240 for traveling 25 minutes!, covering balance equaled to well over $1000 for me to dish out.

utiful. At the trial Larissa worked with me to ensure that my day-of look was everything I wanted and that I looked elegant and beautiful, but not overly made-up or fake. The day of the wedding, she did an amazing job and my make-up and hair were flawless throughout the night. She was also really fun and talkative, which helped alleviate last-minute jitters. Judy and Lauren were also very talented and fun, and every one of my bridesmaids looked gorgeous.
However, I could only give 4 stars because the administrative side is highly disorganized. I put down a deposit, but we made some changes in the weeks leading up to the wedding (added an artist, added some services) and the remainder had to be paid the day of the wedding - I had 10 women getting hair and make-up done, so it was a large bill. I contacted the salon about a dozen times in the lead-up to the wedding to try to get a final quote so I could pay them the correct amount - Kristyn the wedding coordinator would send me to the front desk, the front desk would send me back to Kristyn, I called and e-mailed multiple times, and just wasn't getting any answers. Finally I went in person to get the final quote from the front desk - and after all that, it turned out the amount they gave me was incorrect! So just hours before my first look, my matron of honor and bridesmaids had to scramble to figure this all out and pay the extra difference - they tried to keep me out of it but I knew there was something wrong, and it just added completely unnecessary stress on my wedding day.
If I had to do it all over again - I would 100% book Larissa Lake and Co. because the artists are amazing, but I would state up front before I booked that I would need the final quote in writing, signed by Kristyn, a week before the wedding. This way you get all the beauty, none of the stress.

t for 8 people including myself so they had us start at 10am when we didn’t need to be ready until 4:30pm which resulted in the first few girls needing to touch up their hair and makeup prior to heading to the ceremony. No biggie though. My main issue with LL & co was with their administrative side of things. It seemed very disorganized from the beginning and as a bride that can be unsettling. The office manager, Kystyn, asked me two times, weeks after I had paid my deposit if I had paid it and her overall communications where clear that she wasn’t very detail oriented. Also, a week before my wedding I still hadn’t heard back about a timeline for starting so I had to reach out and then didn’t hear back until 4 days before my wedding and she had failed to make corrections. Now on the day of my wedding I had a lot going on and the girls had miscalculated their final worksheet and not double checking I ended up overpaying by $350. Larissa did end up refunding me and no issues there, everyone makes mistakes, but it did again take quite a few back and forth emails wit Krystyn to get her to really look at the details and understand what had happened. Overall, the stylists are fantastic and the end product of your wedding hair and makeup is good, but Larissa should probably get a real office mamanger.

Leading up to the wedding, I did find it somewhat difficult to get answers/call backs, etc. Only one person can answer questions on bridal beauty, so that makes things difficult and can be slow.

It was fairly difficult arranging for out-of town trials, especially has I had to make 2 trips given my first hair trial was cancelled right before I got there.

The morning of our wedding, Larissa, Chantel, and Stephanie came to my house to pretty-up my girls and me. All three of them were so friendly and fun to spend the morning with! I know each of my bridemaids was pleased with their hair and makeup! A few of my girls don’t typically wear makeup, and Larissa and Chantel were able to apply just enough so they felt like themselves and looked great!
Larissa did my hair and makeup. I was amazed when I looked in the mirror! I still looked like me, just wedding ready and incredible! My hair is straight and short, and Larissa was able to curl it, pin it, and create a beautiful hair style that made me feel so elegant. My makeup equally matched the elegance of my hair style! I felt so beautiful!
All through the day and night, my hair and makeup withstood the dancing, sweating, crying, cupcake smearing, and everything else that challenges hair and makeup to stay put! As I look through my photos, I am so pleased with the work of Larissa Lake Makeup Artist and Company! I received lots of compliments throughout my wedding day, too. Particularly on my hair style!

thinking back to my wedding day morning and the whole "getting ready" experience. I would not have wanted to share it with any other team than them. Larissa and team are incredibly talented, young and energetic, and have awesome personalities.
I initially found Larissa through a Google search and was so impressed by the professionalism of her website and all the positive reviews online that I booked her "sight unseen" for my wedding without doing a trial first.
I finally did have a hair & makeup trial about a month before my wedding (Larissa hair, Stephanie makeup). They were patient with me as I deliberated between two styles (half updo or low and loose side pony tail), and in the end, the low side pony tail prevailed. I was so thankful for their honest opinion to guide me in that direction because I loved how I looked on my wedding day.
In addition to myself, I had four bridesmaids and my mom who had to have their hair & makeup done on my wedding day. Larissa, Stephanie and Shauntelle arrived around 9:30am and had us done and ready for pictures by 1pm. Larissa mainly did hair, Stephanie makeup and Shauntelle a combination of the two. They were calm, cool and collected during the morning even though there were 6 of us to get ready in about 3 hours.
I am sure that Larissa and her team meet a wide variety of personalities in their line of work, and I was thankful that they had the patience to deal with two of my bridesmaids who might have been high maintenance and/or a little crazy!
I had no reason to stress about how I (or my mom and bridesmaids) looked on my wedding day because Larissa, Stephanie and Shauntelle do amazing work. They are a very reputable and talented team, and I wish them continued success and give my heartfelt thanks!

and they looked FABULOUS!
I only ran into a problem when my veil (which was long and heavy) started coming out, and actually fell out completely as I started my procession so I got married without it. After that, my hair was falling out the whole night and I left a trail of hairpins everywhere I went. Before the end of the reception, I had to put in my own hair clip to keep it from falling down completely.
I can definitely understand that the heavy veil fell out, and I really wasn't very attached to it so I wasn't upset. However, I think we had a misunderstanding somewhere that could have prevented the problems. I had asked Larissa to stay until after the ceremony to touch me up (I knew there would be waterworks), but I guess she forgot and left before the ceremony started. Granted, I didn't mention it to her that day, but I had other things on my mind at the time. Her work is beautiful and she is a sweetheart, so I would still recommend her.
