I cannot say enough about Love Is In The Hair. They were so accommodating, professional, and beyond easy to work with. They arrived early, finished early and my girls and I could not have been happier to spend the day with them. Stefani and Michelle are the best there is! They... Read More have their routine down like clockwork, making for a very relaxed experience. The best part... these two ladies are the most talented beauty team if worked with. I've been in a few weddings were people aren't happy with their hair and makeup. This was the exact opposite for my wedding.of course I had my trial and knew I would look incredible, but the bridesmaids don't do trials. Stefani and Michelle made every one of my bridesmaids and my mom stunning! Everyone felt like their best version of them themselves thanks to Love Is In The Hair. They made sure everyone knew what they were doing with their hair and makeup and wanted everyone to be comfortable. Thank you so much to Stefani and Michelle for making me and my girls look gorgeous, for making it fun and stress free and for being wonderful people. Don't think twice about booking this dynamic duo. You will not be sorry!

If I could give 100 stars I would! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Michelle and her team at Love is in the Hair!! She created an absolutely gorgeous look for me on my wedding day, and her assistant Nicole was fabulous too, creating gorgeous looks for my bridesmaids... Read More as well :) It was such a lovely experience, spending the wedding morning with these wonderful girls. As a bride, one of the most important parts of the wedding is the look coming together and feeling your most beautiful on such a special day. You put a huge amount of trust in your beauty professionals to take your vision and make it come to life. Michelle completely elevated this vision I had for myself and my girls, and I still get chills thinking of how beautiful we all were that day. The groom was pretty blown away as well :) If I had to do it all over again, I would pick Love is in the Hair every time over. It was a joy to work with Michelle and her team. Any bride looking for professional, creative, exceptional people to create her wedding look should look no further than Love is in the Hair!!

These ladies, Stefani and Michelle, will be your wedding hair and makeup dream team. First, they are amazing. Second, they listen. Third, they are wedding industry pros. Fourth, did I mention how amazing they are? Stefani did my hair and makeup for my destination wedding in... Read More Truckee. Their home base is Folsom, CA but they service a pretty wide area of Northern California (and they will travel farther!). We did my hair trial about 4 months prior to the wedding which is unusually early but I am an engineer and I plan in buffer time and make contingency plans. Stefani worked off of a few photos and my input about the venue (outdoor on a golf course), my dress, trends versus classic. In the end, we settled on a romantic up do. She also did a trial run for my makeup - I have extremely sensitive skin and a lot of random allergies. She was able to work around all of that. I never reacted to anything she used. Stylists will always tell you not to expect the exact same hairstyle (super close but not exact). Day of, Stefani improved on the trial. I didn't think that was possible (I walked out of the salon after the trial - makeup on but hair undone and dropped my fiancé's jaw). It was amazing. I loved the style and how everything turned out. She also dos my mother in law's hair and makeup. My MIL started to cry when she saw herself, she felt so beautiful (that led to the rest of us yelling "eyelashes!!!" At each other to help stop tears). Michelle did the hair for each of my bridesmaids. She did an initial chat with each and then played up their best features and helped find a style that suited each girl. Their hair turned out amazing. So many selfies were taken that day. Oh yeah, and they did at this at the vacation home we were renting for the wedding party. They literally brought the salon to us. I was super lucky that I found them. They are excellent!

Michelle, Stefani and their team are the absolute best in the business. I had the pleasure of having them take care of me and my bridal party for my wedding over Memorial Day weekend 2017.

Being an Asian woman, I was really worried about finding a makeup artist that could do my makeup without making me look too overdone. It's really easy to do. Stephanie made me feel at ease, did my makeup EXACTLY how I wanted it, took feedback, and made me look better than I ever have before! And on top of it all, I still looked like myself. All my bridesmaids felt the same. Furthermore, my hair STAYED curly not only through my wedding, but through my going away brunch the next day! Finally, they run their business like a tight ship. They are fast to respond, had incredibly thorough responses, and were really just the most professional of vendors EVER. All while being the nicest people you could imagine. Stef and Michelle, thank you for making my dream wedding a reality. I can't thank you enough!

I hadn't fully decided if I would wear my hair up or down for the wedding and leading up to the big day Michelle would send me pictures of hair styles asking which looks I liked. She never pressured me and let me decide the day of what I wanted to do. That kind of flexibility really helps when you're as indecisive as I am. The day of the wedding, Michelle, Stefani, and Shane came to my bridal suite early and set up everything they needed. They flawlessly executed hair and makeup for my entire bridal party and were incredibly efficient all morning. My friends loved them and kept saying how much fun they all had while getting ready.
