auren is excellent! To call me "picky" is an understatement. I had three hair trials before trying and hiring Lauren (including one with a Fekkai alum that cost $300!). Lauren was, by far, the best! She is the perfect combination of skill, professionalism, reliability, experience (from our conversation, it seemed that she was doing wedding hair right out of the womb), value and trustworthiness. I have a ton of heavy, stick-straight hair that never holds a curl for more than thirty seconds, and Lauren achieved what had previously been unimaginable to me: hair that held up both on the entire day following my trial (which included a ferry trip!) and throughout my entire wedding day! Lauren is professional, talented, and listens. At my trial, Lauren was patient. Unlike another stylist I tried who was rushed and eager to finish and get on with her day, Lauren spent over two hours trying different looks with me. Lauren was very interested in achieving my vision, which, after tying a different stylist who called my ideas “promlike and not weddinglike”, was incredibly refreshing. Additionally, on the day of, Lauren was all-hands on deck. She arrived on time, and she styled my mother’s (who is even more difficult than me!) hair patiently and beautifully. She also went above and beyond when she redid my niece’s hair, after she was unhappy with the work of a stylist from a nearby salon. Lauren is wonderful, and I encourage anyone in the market for a wedding hair stylist to, without reservation, hire her.
I was recommended to Lauren by a friend. My Daughter and I had trials back in July for my sons October wedding. Upon meeting Lauren for the first time, we knew she was both professional and very experienced. She listened and produced what we both wanted at the trial and again last weekend at the wedding. It is always a good idea to take your own pictures during your trial so you have something to glance back at. Lauren duplicated exactly what I had at my trial while my daughter opted to change it up a bit and Lauren was only too happy to make it happen! Lauren’s work, expertise and friendly personality make for a great addition to anyone’s special day! She goes above and beyond what’s required of her. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the past months and I look forward to working with her again in the future! I truly cannot day enough about Lauren!!
I am beyond happy that I decided to hire Lauren as my hairstylist for my wedding! I decided to have my hair trial the same day as my engagement photoshoot and Lauren listened to exactly what I wanted for my hair -- I have fine, long hair and she was able to style me with voluminous curls that lasted and looked special. For my wedding I basically wanted the same, just with a bridal hair comb incorporated into the look. When I asked Lauren to get hair extensions for me at the very last minute, she pulled through and completely saved the day! The extensions and the way Lauren styled my hair on the day of the wedding looked AMAZING. She cares so much about her brides having the perfect day; it really shows that she is passionate about her work and business. I can't say enough good things; she also brought along a second stylist for the bridal party, my mother, and mother of the groom and everyone looked stunning. I've already recommended her to others, who did a hair trial and decided to hire her as well. Once you meet Lauren for a trial, you will want to hire her too!
I used Lauren for my August 2017 wedding and she is the absolute best! She has the best energy and the exact person you would want around on your wedding day- calm, funny, and professional. My wedding party looked amazing. And as the bride, my hair looked perfect until the very end of the night. I cannot say enough good things about Lauren. My little sister, who hopes to get married one day, says she will only use Lauren for her big day.
After attending a friend's wedding and witnessing first hand the finished result of Lauren's work, I decided to book a trial with her. She was patient, understanding, informative and made me feel as if she understood the importance of every detail that days. It was a blessing working with her and knowing she held my expectations as a priority. The day of was calm, she was patient and everyone was happy. I could not have asked for more. Thank you Lauren!
When I think of Lauren and the experience I had with the her from pre-trial all the way until the day of my wedding, one word sticks out amongst the rest....and that is simply AMAZING! I had first seen her work while I was a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. Although I was only a bridesmaid, she not only helped guide me to figure out what kind of hair I wanted, but kept having me go to the mirror to see if we were going in the right direction. She actually cared about me and wanted me to be happy with my hair no matter what my position in the wedding was. That day, I couldn't get enough compliments on my hair, and I knew a few years later when I got married, she would be the one I would go to. Just 2 days ago, I was married and the experience with her was flawless. She was able to perfectly execute 8 girls total in a matter of 5 hours! And no, not a rush job either. My girls were obsessed with their hair AND their hair was still in tack at the end of the night. Like she did with me, she had them go and check in the mirror and any little tweaks the girls would need, she was willing and able to fix with no problem. As for myself, I wanted a quick change from the trial we originally had and she was able to improv and make the the style look even better than I could imagine. When we were done, she even stayed around and was willing to wait until I needed my veil set in. If you want someone that is PROFESSIONAL, PATIENT, KIND, CARING, TALENTED, and KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING, I highly suggest you book Lauren now! I will continue to recommend her over and over again, no questions asked. And if you get to read this Lauren, thank you so so so much for everything! You helped to make my special day that much better!!
Lauren is great! I cannot say enough about her! Her work is absolutely phenomenal and as a hairstylist myself I was nervous about finding someone. She made me feel super comfortable during the trial and on the day of the wedding even better! She was on time and super up beat & made me feel pampered which I don’t always get! My hair and my sisters hair stayed great throughout the whole day! She came back later to the wedding venue to do touch ups which were not even really needed but so appreciated! I cannot recommend Lauren enough! I’m so happy I found her & I will definitely keep her in mind for future events!
I do not have enough words to describe the magic that Lauren worked on my hair for my wedding this past June of 2017. First, Lauren was amazing at my trial -- when I preferred trying different styles, she was happy to accommodate my whims until I found one I loved. Then on the day of my wedding, she calmly listened to each of my relatives/friends and everyone was so thrilled with the outcome, including my 8 year old niece who wanted her blonde hair up and the hair itself tied in a bow (which I have never seen). And when it came to my own hair, I receive compliments to this day on the photos and was asked by folks at the wedding to pose for photos so that they could show a bride-to-be my hair. It was intricate and classic and different all at the same time -- and I have thin hair! I cannot thank Lauren enough.
Absolutely amazing! My wedding was very early and Lauren was ready! It was a very tight schedule and Lauren was able to efficiently and gracefully finished my bridesmaids within that time frame. It was amazing! Not to mention my very complex hairstyle. She created art on my hair. She was able to take ideas and bring them to life. Love her! She was professional, artistic and such a pleasure. I highly recommend Lauren to all brides!
I cannot say enough about Lauren - I absolutely LOVE both her and her work. From the moment I contacted her to my wedding day, everything was perfection and ease with her. I got married in early June during one of the lovely 95 degree days (my wedding was outside). Lauren did hair for me, my mom, my sister in law, and my two nieces (flower girls). She was so organized and efficient that everyone was done and ready to go in time for the pictures - she even made sure I got time to eat before all the craziness was really going to get under way! For my wedding, I wanted a half up/half down hairdo but was hesitant about it as I also have severe migraines that make lots of pins in the hair very painful (and as someone who has incredibly thick wavy/curly hair, lots of pins are a must). Right from the trial, Lauren listened to my concerns, created the look (well multiple until I found the one I loved) and encouraged me to wear it that way for the rest of the day to make sure it would be ok for the wedding and if not, she'd adjust and make my vision happen (and make me comfortable). No adjustment was needed. All I can say is that I never felt a single pin and my hair stayed put in a gorgeous design during a 95 degree day for over 10 hours. I have already recommended Lauren to several people and will never hesitate to continue to do so. She was and will continue to be the best. To make what could be a stressful time less so, do yourself a favor and hire Lauren (and take any recommendations she give you!)
Lauren was great to work with for my wedding. From our trial, she was great about listening to what I wanted and working with my hair type. With a ton of really fine, straight hair, I have never been able to get it to stay in an updo until Lauren, who managed it beautifully, and it lasted all day throughout dancing! She does beautiful work on updos, especially in the back, and I got tons of compliments on how well my hair went with my dress. I was just as impressed by her work on my bridesmaids and mother-in-law. She did a great job of matching each person’s hairstyle to their personal style, which I think is just so impressive considering that she was meeting them all for the first time. But while they were all different, they were all just really classy. Lauren was great to work with day-of — she was punctual and relaxed and it was fun to hang out with her while everyone was getting ready.
I was married on 10/15/16 Lauren not only handled me but 7 bridesmaids. She did an awesome job! We weren't behind schedule at all and never felt rushed. Everything was easy peasy and all my girls hair came out great! Exactly what I wanted. Lauren is highly recommended
Lauren was great, she works fast and efficiently and would definitely recommend her to friends!
I had Lauren for a trial two months before my wedding. It was for me, my MOH and mother and possibly one other. I ended up signing a contract with her about 20-25 days (because she took forever to get me the contract), for myself and 4 other women, (I added two more!) and I mailed her a $160 deposit. One of the women had to cancel due to a physical ailment, and we told this to Lauren two days before my wedding day and she said no way that we owed her the money for that person because any changes needed to happen 60 days prior to event day. She knew, as anyone who can read knows, we signed the contract far less than 60 days before the event day, and so that was literally impossible. We were so disgusted with this answer, that she already took the $160 deposit and then wanted the additional $100 or she wasn't going to come - that we canceled her two days before my wedding. Which caused great anguish for any bride as you can imagine 2 days before their wedding. Luckily I went with the original company I was going to go with and it worked out wonderfully but then something else horrible happened on my actual wedding day- Lauren tried to steal my $500 that she would have received had she actually worked my wedding day (after she already cashed the $160 deposit weeks before), by running my card approximately 5 times again - ON my wedding day! My bank called me because there was suspicious activity and they blocked her from ever trying anything like that again -- but she legitimately tried to steal my money the day of my wedding when I had a million other things going on -- and then I get an email from her that morning saying she would still like to come, and is in the area? It was SO creepy. And I can not tell you how disgusted I am by every thing above - but the real sick part is that she tried to steal my money the day of my wedding. What an absolute nightmare, and its completely criminal and I will be taking this to the better business bureau.
Everything was perfect for my wedding. My girls looked beautiful. Thank you for making my day so much easier.
I can not even leave a review on services. I have been emailing back and forth. Lauren says she will call to talk about her service and about setting up a trial and she never calls. She told me Thursday and no call. Then she told me today and I am still waiting for a call. I think it is unprofessional and would not want this on my wedding day. So the search continues I can not stand unreliability. Way to treat a potential client 👎🏼
I was a bride on Dec. 11th 2015. Words cannot express how grateful I am to Lauren for making me look fabulous! My hair was on point!!! Extensions, curls, twist and all!!!! EVERYONE at my wedding LOVED my hair!!! Not only was my hair on point but she also saved the day, my mother's dress ripped right before photographer arrived. She helped mend the dress!!!!!!!!!! Love her and I will be using her again for any special occasion!!!!!!! Thanks Lauren!!!!
Lauren was amazing!Reviewed on 11/10/2015 Christine S
I LOVE Lauren - she did an amazing job on my hair and all of my bridesmaids and my mom, plus we all had an amazing time with her while she was styling us. My wedding ceremony was set to start at 2pm, with the bridal party leaving at 12:45. Lauren started at 7am and had us all ready to go before noon. It was great that she stayed to do touch-ups and her infectious energy and upbeat attitude really made the morning getting ready so much more enjoyable. I cannot recommend Lauren enough- she was phenomenal and everyone's hair looked even better!!
I got married on October 10 th and Lauren took care of me, my bridal party and my mother! I could not ask for a better updo on my wedding day. Lauren is an experienced professional who knows her job and is a good listener. She always listens to what the clients wants and strives to deliver results with excellence. Everyone loved Lauren's work and my wedding could not have been as beautiful as it wasn't for her. I was extremely impressed that it took her only a few hours to turn all of us into beauties! Thank you Lauren! ☺️
I met Lauren at the end of the summer when I had a bad experience with another stylist. Lauren was able to answer all my questions and keep me calm, both at the trial and the day of my wedding. She made my bridal party and I feel beautiful on my wedding day, and gave each of us attention until we were happy. I would recommend her to everyone.
I just lauren at a friends wedding last Friday, I was very impressed with her work. She was amazing to work with and her company was a pleasure. She made the day that much calmer, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone have a special event.
After having a few trials with different hair stylists, Lauren was the only person able to give me the look I was looking for, she's really fast and easy to work with, she can almost read your mind & doesn't give up until she makes you look the way you have dreamed for so long, I really recommend her, I'm a perfectionist & I couldn't be any happier with the result. Thank you so much Lauren!!!
I could not have been more impressed with Lauren and her professionalism. Not only did Lauren do an absolutely amazing job but she was so easy to work with. I was so lucky to have her. Pinned & Proper was referred to me through a friend of a friend after a horrific experience. With less than 4 weeks before my wedding day, a hair & makeup artist did not show to my trial. The previous team was to not only do my hair & makeup but my 4 bridesmaids as well. Feeling like I could not rely on them the day of my wedding I called Lauren hoping she was available. Miraculously she was available and not only did she get back to me quickly but she called me! It was so nice to have full communication with her throughout the entire process, nothing was lost in translation. Lauren put me to ease right off the bat and she did an absolutely amazing job! She is an incredibly talented artist. She was very receptive during the trial process to any ideas or suggestions I brought up. Lauren & Evy (my make-up artist) worked so well together which made getting ready seamless and so much fun. I could not have been happier with how my hair and make-up turned out. My hair was beautiful and stayed in all night which is amazing because I have very fine straight hair. My make up was stunning! Evy gave me a natural look that enhanced my features and really made my eyes pop. Lauren & Evy made my bridal party look absolutely amazing. I am so happy they were a part of my wedding day. I would highly recommend using Lauren!
I had the pleasure of working with Lauren for my friend’s wedding in Westhampton Beach this August. She arrived at my hotel room door on the dot of our appointment time with a suitcase of every possible hair styling tool and product in tow. We consulted on the style I wanted and she got to work transforming my frizz into a sleek and voluminous blow out. She took the time to ensure that the look was coming out as I had envisioned and that I was happy with the end result. It was truly a treat to have the convenience of such a prepared, professional and accommodating stylist come and help me get ready on site. I was initially put off by the seemingly high price tag of just a blow out but quickly realized that the service is very well worth it. As a recent bride myself, I wish I had met her sooner because I am all to familiar with the stress of finding someone both talented and reliable. Luckily, I got to enjoy a bit of pampering as a traveling wedding guest myself!

I met Lauren when she did hair for my sisters wedding. Since then she has been a big part of my wedding process. Bridal shower hair, hair trials you name it. Always comes out perfect. And trust me I am a perfectionist. She was there for me during my wedding day to make sure I felt beautiful. And my hair was perfect. Couldn't have asked for anything better.
