Lisa does 100% the best makeup I have ever seen in my life. Her and her hair team will make you legit look like a model while still making it look natural and not over done. Absolutely perfect. It photographs extremely well, too (she obviously knows what she is doing she has the years of experience). To me, it is important that I look gorgeous in my pictures (since that's what I'll get to keep after the wedding), and I absolutely did!! We all felt so beautiful and got compliments ALL NIGHT (and even after when people saw pictures). My mother is super picky with her hair.. she had a vision and Joelle did it perfectly. She kept saying all night that she felt like a glamour girl. That right there is such a happy feeling that I could give my mother that - she, and I quote, "was on cloud 9". I think we all deserve at least one day to REALLY look and feel that gorgeous. Stellar job, Lisa and gals, thank you!!
Lisa and her team are an incredible band of artists. There is no one in whose hands I would have felt safer for my day of "glam squad" needs. From hair with Jess and Donna to makeup with Tiffany and Lisa, my bridal party looked AMAZING and I felt like the most beautiful bride. They were easy to work with and happy to take feedback. I can't wait to see the pictures. Lisa is the best!!!!!
I had a great experience with Lisa and her team for my June 2017 wedding. I loved my hair and makeup and my bridesmaids and mother looked beautiful. Not only did we look great, but it was fun to have the team in the bridal suite as they are so sweet and friendly. Thanks Lisa, Joelle, and team!
I had a really great experience with Lisa George and her team - especially Joelle, who is also fantastic! The team was so personable and easy to work with, and Lisa's sense of humor really calmed my nerves during my hair & make-up trial! Really recommend the team - and such a fun experience!
I’m surprised to see so many of the good reviews, because I did not have a very positive experience with Lisa. She was listed as a recommended vendor through my venue which is how I found her, but I would advise brides to look elsewhere. Here’s why – 1. At my trial, Lisa did not ask me for my vision but rather just started doing her own thing – I did have a vision in mind, but that was not at all taken into consideration. She did a nice job, but it was her vision – not mine. 2. The week leading up to my wedding I confirmed the payment that I owed to Lisa so I could have all my checks prepared – she included the tip as part of her quote – I don’t know if this is standard, but isn’t the whole idea of ‘tipping’ determined after the quality of the service you get – not a presumed amount ? I found that very off-putting, but wrote the check for the amount she quoted (including her gratuity) just to have it off my plate – enough other things to worry about a week before your wedding. 3. The DAY before my wedding (we’re now in celebration mode people… not ‘planning’ anymore) she emails me to say that she messed up and that I owed another $100- sorry, that would have been something to discuss earlier this week when I was confirming payment! Don’t add that stress to me the day before my wedding- it really ticked me off that close to the big day. 4. On the morning of the wedding – her staff showed up on time and everyone was off to a good start. When I finally sat down in the chair, she took honestly close to 2 hours to do my make-up. We were running ahead of schedule UNTIL I sat down – I ended up being close to an hour late for my ‘first look’ (making my groom very nervous about where I was)– and the result was a very rushed moment of getting ready. This also heavily cut into our picture time which we wanted to do before the ceremony. 5. She also had her girls stick around well after they were done so that they could eat the leftover food we brought into the room. She asked “Are your girls done eating? Can mine have some?” I found this so unbelievably rude and unprofessional. I felt like the girls lingered around well after they were done specifically to eat our food - just so off putting In the end, I found Lisa to be rude and unprofessional. Her girls were nice and did a good job, but overall I would not recommend this service to a bride looking for a relaxing enjoyable experience!
I used Lisa George's team for my 10/29/2016 wedding at the Wychmere Beach Club and have nothing but positive things to say. All four ladies who travelled to my rental house to do my bridal party's hair and makeup (Joelle, Sydnie, Donna & Tiffany) were terrific. They were on time, professional, had great personalities and were so fun to be with while everyone was getting ready. Even Lisa stopped in to say hello and see how everything was going. My entire bridal party was very happy with their hair and makeup and all the pictures taken looked great! Thanks ladies!!
All I can say is Sydnie is AWESOME! She was so easy going, professional, funny, and she made me, my mom, my maid of honor, my grandmother and our two flower girls look like a MILLION BUCKS! She really knows the exact colors to use on everyone! I cannot thank Sydnie enough! We all had compliments and questions about our makeup and I was happy to let them know who the artist was! Loved the application too, never felt like I had makeup on...AMAZING!!! I just wish I knew how to apply makeup this flawlessly!!!!
WOW! Lisa and her team were amazing. Myself, my bridal party of 4 girls, my mom and my mother in law all got our hair and makeup done the morning before the wedding. We had three girl doing hair and three doing makeup and we were all done in a timely manner and looked BEAUTIFUL. Lisa and her team nailed the look that we were going for and the hair and makeup looked fabulous all day. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
I got married last August at Chatham Bars Inn, but the more I looked at my pictures, the more I realized I needed to give an update on a couple of issues. While everyone was super nice and professional, Lisa pretty much did what she wanted as far as makeup went, and didn't really listen to the fact that I wanted my makeup a bit more on the heavy side (I like natural and all, but I wanted a bit more glam, and I showed her plenty of photos). I had a lot of girls so when it came to me, it almost seemed like she rushed and forgot simple touches like my bottom lashes, and even eyebrows! At that point I was so nervous anyways, I let a lot slide, and just focused on getting dressed, getting to the alter, etc. But now that I look at my pictures, I remember why I wanted heavier makeup! My eyebrows faded, I usually line my bottom lid and use mascara, so it definitely wasn't as dramatic in the images. Disappointed to say that least. I will say, it was veryyyyy subtle makeup. Very subtle. The girls did a great job on my bridesmaids, and one regret I had was not using arosol hair spray to hold my curls-my hair stylist only used regular spray, so needless to say nothing stayed very long on a hot August day. I also asked for my top to be bigger and more buffouant style, and I just don't think she had much practice doing "big", because it was still pretty flat (and I have a ton of hair to work with!) I even had a trial beforehand and she said on my day she could make it bigger. Didn't happen. Again, I didn't have time to complain or change anything, because we sorta were in a tight time frame at that point. Again, sweet girls, very professional, I just wished they had listened a bit closer, or maybe I was just expecting too much.
I used Lisa George's staff for my June wedding at Wychmere Beach Club. Joelle and Tiffany traveled to my cape house off season for the trial, and Donna and Kayla joined for the day of at a rental house near Wychmere. Everyone was on time, flexible, and I didn't really price compare but I was comfortable with their rates. I never met Lisa but she handled all of the scheduling. I was very happy with our looks, I have very long, thick and heavy hair and it magically stayed put all night! Thank you Joelle!
My wedding was just a few days ago and I am still marveling at the photos. Lisa and her team did a simply marvelous job at making us look stunning. She was absolutely worth the money. She and the ladies took the time to make sure we looked natural and frankly it couldn't have been more perfect.
Lisa, Jess, and the rest of their team are amazing! The hair and make-up that they did for myself, my mother and my bridal party was absolutely gorgeous! And it lasted all day and night! They did exactly what I asked for, subtle and classic, and delivered it perfectly. Lisa had taken notes from our trial and brought them the day of the wedding to make things run seamlessly. She was also able to accommodate a schedule change which I was very grateful for. Absolute professionals!
Lisa George was wonderful! She traveled in the worst weather to do one trial 2 weeks prior to my wedding (cold and pouring buckets) and then make-up for my wedding and then the reception (white-out blizzard conditions) which was the following day. I do not normally wear make-up and so I was concerned that it took about an hour to put on all the make up but when I looked at the results, I was thrilled at how great AND how natural I looked. She is a real artist with my eyes, fake lashes and the air brush. I have never been more pleased. My sister and mother, after seeing my trial, also signed up to have Lisa do their make-up. Plus the make-up stayed put while I traveled in the rain and then a blizzard! I found her through my planner- Cape Cod Celebrations and I highly recommend Lisa George!!!!
I found Lisa and her team the same way I found many of our wedding vendors: online reviews. I wasn’t interested in spending any time on my wedding day in a salon, and my basic criteria was that the person would come to the house to get us ready and make me look and feel like the best version of myself. I do not wear much makeup – chapstick and eyeliner (and mascara if I’m feeling fancy!) – and didn’t want to feel like I was wearing a mask as a bride. Lisa and her team did not disappoint and lived up to every positive review. All of my bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law, and two flower girls looked absolutely stunning. They are all so beautiful in their own right, and Lisa and her team brought out their individual beauty in the most perfect way. They looked like the most fabulous versions of themselves without looking or feeling like they were wearing too much makeup. As the bride, I couldn’t have been happier with how I looked on my wedding day. I felt so pretty, and the makeup was so light that I could hardly tell that I was wearing any. I didn’t spend a single second worrying about how I looked – my makeup stayed put all day long without even a touch up. Lisa was careful not to hide my freckles and made sure I didn’t look or feel like I was wearing a mask. Jess did my hair, and I was so thrilled with what she did. On the day of the trial, Jess gave me exactly what I asked for. As time went on and I looked at pictures from the trial, I realized that it wasn’t what I wanted. As I was about to get into the chair to be styled, I told Jess I wanted something different. She was patient and flexible, listened to what I was describing, looked at a photo, and gave me EXACTLY what I was hoping for. She was great fun to be around and a true professional in her work. Lisa, Jess, and the entire team did an outstanding job making me and my girls look and feel beautiful. All of our hair and makeup stood the test of time, lasting the entire day and night through a few tears, a little sweat, and lots of laughter and dancing.
Lisa George and her team are fantastic! I hired them to do the hair and makeup for myself and my entire bridal party (including my mom and 2 grandmothers) and they did a fantastic job on everyone! The staff is so nice and professional and did a great job at listening to what each girl wanted. Lisa really knows what she is doing - and not just with makeup. She takes a look at everyone's hair as well and gives feedback to her stylists on anything that needs to be tweaked to ensure everyone looks perfect. Everyone loved the work Lisa and her team did. I would highly recommend them to anyone getting married on The Cape!
While it is upsetting to see the review given below, it's more upsetting to see how fabricated it actually is. I can agree with there being an issue of a payment, but it stems from the original payment given not being able to be processed. As far as the flower girls, the stylist checked with Lisa before saying agreeing to anything and they were quoted at a lower price, and not the 100$ that was stated. Then atleast one member of the family made it quite clear how unprofessional it was that they were being charged, even though it was a service that was going to take time. I think the most upsetting and confusing part is that while Lisa George and Associates left, we were being praised for our work and services and then we stumble on his review. We strive to do our best work for every member of the bridal party and not just the bride. We take great pride in our work. While we are open for constructive criticism, we don't take lightly such fabricated events regarding our profession.
Dealing with Lisa was one of the most challenging and disappointing parts of my wedding planning. She told me I looked exhausted the morning of my wedding (what bride isn't - and even if you are, dont say that!) and messed up the billing and charged me twice for all of the services. The worse part is she had her assistant texting me DURING the wedding to confirm credit card info they had months in advance. Also, there were two flower girls in my bridal party who did not plan on having their hair done. One stylist finished early and told Lisa she would do it for free - Lisa said only if they pay $100 each, which was ridiculous. She was rude to my family and hard to communicate with. I wouldn't recommend.
absolutely gorgeousReviewed on 10/08/2015 Jacqueline C
I am so glad I chose to work with Lisa George for our wedding. She was very responsive and friendly from the very beginning, and her work is incredible! Her and her team came to our house, and everything went perfectly! They showed up early and finished ahead of schedule, which is amazing because we had nine ladies for hair and makeup. They do an amazing job of making you feel at ease and not stressed out. Everyone loved their hair and makeup and everyone looked beautiful. Lisa does amazing work, and I highly recommend working with her and her staff!
Lisa and her glam squad were absolutely amazing! we had about 10 girls that needed their hair and make up done along with the mothers! she had us all ready to go on time! Lisa is honestly the best! I wear minimal make up daily and I just wanted to look myself - but better haha! She is very talented and professional! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
Great jobReviewed on 9/18/2015 Alisha M
The stylists and artist did a great job with hair and makeup. They were very accommodating as far as coming to you and at no extra charge either. They did an amazing job with my bridesmaids, and I didn't look to shabby either. Great price for such great service/results.
My bridesmaids and I looked absolutely gorgeous for the wedding, thanks to Lisa and her team! I was so nervous to get my makeup done, as I had never had it done professionally and am particular about what I like. Lisa put me at ease. She also had a great sense of humor! Her entire team was a pleasure to work with as well. I am so glad we decided to go with Lisa, our pictures came out great! So happy with everything!
Simply Amazing!Reviewed on 9/14/2015 Nikki S
I just celebrated my wedding 3 days ago and can't say enough about the work Lisa and team did for not only me, but my entire wedding party! I treated my bridesmaids, Mom, Mother in Law and Grandmother to hair and makeup services as a gift and Lisa's team made each and every one of us feel so beautiful. Lisa's makeup style is just so stunning that you feel like the best version of yourself, not an overly made up bride that you barely recognize. When i described what kind of "look" I was going for at my trial, she totally got it and nailed it. When it comes to hair, we had Jess and Steph from her team who both did a FANTASTIC job. I even changed my mind at the last minute and decided to do an up-do rather than the down look we tried at my trial and Jess was amazing at changing things up, understanding what I was really looking for. I even wanted a final change to bring some hair forward in a sweeping "bang" and she quickly made the change and everything looked FLAWLESS. My hair and makeup stayed perfect throughout the night and even through the next day for some of my wedding party! I can't recommend them enough. Trust in Lisa and team and she will make you a gorgeous bride!
Lisa and her team did hair and make up for my wedding at the Wequassett Resort in August. There were nine of us, including my bridesmaids, mother and aunt. Everyone looked AMAZING and was so happy with how they looked. Lisa is hilarious and kept me so calm throughout the day. Jess did my hair and is also a lovely person; she talked to me the whole time and also helped ease my nerves! Everyone's make up looked so beautiful and natural. We couldn't be happier with them!!! Thank you Lisa and team!!
I was so thrilled start (hiring) to finish (the perfect look) with Lisa George and her team. The Artists are very professional yet very personable. The entire process was stress free. My hairstylist and makeup artist are both so very talented and made my day even more special with the perfect look!! We were all beyond happy!! Thank you again for the perfect team and creating an amazing look!
Disappointing on every levelReviewed on 7/01/2015 Melissa P
I would ABSOLUTELY NOT recommend using Lisa George for your wedding. Lisa and her company came highly recommended to me from my venue and after speaking with her multiple times, I thought it was going to be great. For starters, she cannot communicate through email. She should just stop using it all together. The first few times we emailed she had no idea who I was (after we signed a contract and had talked multiple times) and each subsequent time, she was short and confusing. I think some people just don't proof read what they write but it was incredibly unprofessional and perhaps contributed to my poor experience. At my first trial I was asked to bring a picture. I showed the stylist what I wanted for hair which was essentially a simple, classy chignon and honestly came out looking like an Amish person from the 70's. NOT CUTE. They could tell I was unhappy so they tried again. Still no good. Still droopy and sad looking and nothing like the photo I had showed them. Tried a third time and it still sucked but I was there for about 2 hours and had to start on makeup so I said it was fine. Lisa kindly invited me down for a second trial with a new girl which went a lot better. I paid for this trial again and expressed my dissatisfaction. Lisa said I wasn't supposed to be charged so she took it off the final bill for the day of. On the day of my wedding, the girl who was doing my hair showed up five minutes late. I called and emailed Lisa and never got a response. Sheer panic set it. Not how you want to start your day. Thankfully she got there and I relaxed a little. No apology or anything. Everyone's hair turned out pretty nicely. Mine wasn't exactly as it had been on the trial but there is nothing I can do about it now. The makeup went really well, I looked very natural and pretty and was really happy with it. We had a minor kerfuffle when the girl doing my makeup tried to use a makeup cloth that I had a reaction to during the trial where my faced turned bright red. Luckily, I caught it and she used something else. Overall, everything went pretty well until the hair stylist starting counting the money, laying it out in piles on the table. Out of my nice little envelopes I had labeled for each one. Counting over and over and over. Checking her phone, texting, counting. I said what is going on? Lisa and I agreed, in email, on a price, less the second trial which I shouldn't have been charged for. She thought I may have overpaid. I said if I did, keep it for yourself, its only another $50. It was all very sketchy. I said I have the email to prove the amount. She asked if I could send it to her. I said you know what? I will email it to you tomorrow because I'm literally stepping into my dress and the photographers are on their way. You need to move the piles of money now. She moved to a new location wit the money. It was honestly, the most unprofessional thing I have ever witnessed. Eventually she left and the day after our wedding, I forwarded her the email. Lisa argued that she was trying to make sure I didn't overpay but honestly, I told her time and again to keep the extra money so what was the point??? I also expressed my disappointment with her being late and Lisa responded with "Oh well they changed the password at the gate so she couldn't get in". Its just always an excuse with her. She is miserable to work with and on your wedding day you don't want the headache. Use someone else. Or use her girls without her.
