I unfortunately had a very bad experience with Mercedes. I found her through theknot website and contacted her because of her great reviews. My initial interactions with her were fine. I set up an appointment with her for a trial in her salon. I was considering an updo and a... Read More half-up look, and came prepared with multiple photographs of looks I had in mind for each. As she was working on the first style, I confided in her that, due to some health issues, my hair had thinned significantly, and I was quite self-conscious about this. She finished the first look and it was, let's say, disappointing. She could see on my face that I didn't care for the style, and she immediately began blaming my hair (it was just too fine, too thin, I would need at least 2 packs of extensions to look even close to nice, etc). It was really hurtful, but I tried to brush it off, and she began the updo. I was also really disappointed in this look! Again, she blamed my hair and made me feel even more self-conscious and terrible about myself. After she finished the second look, I was ready to get the hell out of her salon. I went up to the desk to pay her, and she decided then was a good time to tell me cash or check only! I was going to a salon, not someone's house, so it didn't even occur to me that she would not have a credit card machine. Maybe that was my mistake, but I've never been to a salon that was cash only. Either way, it would have been nice to have been told that in advance. She told me to just mail a check, which I did the next morning. I showed friends and co-workers the two styles over the next few days, and there wasn't one person that thought that either look was even okay (and I did not let them know my thoughts before I showed them the photos). Multiple people said "please tell me you didn't sign a contract yet." Approximately a week after my appointment with her, I get a series of nasty texts from her that she had not yet received payment for the services she rendered. I told her that I had mailed the check, and to please give it another day or two. She gave it one more day, and when the check didn't arrive, sent me another crazy string of texts. I ended up having to stop payment on the check, and QuickPay her because she would not leave me alone. Needless to say, I found another stylist to do my wedding hair. He was amazing, and a genius. He never once made me feel anything less than beautiful, and gave me a gorgeous, full style. A truly gifted stylist can do that for you, Mercedes could not.

Mercedes and 3 of her assistants showed up to our hotel suite in Manhattan exactly on time. I had a very large bridal party and every one of them was made to look just gorgeous! Mercedes did my own and my mother’s hair and make up, and I could not have been more pleased. She is truly talented and an artist. She has an eye for what looks good on you, but also listens to what you want and tailors it to your look. Every bride is super nervous the morning of their wedding. You WANT Mercedes in the room with you! She is so artistic and so calming that you just know you are in good hands. You can just relax and enjoy the moment. She has also hired a fantastic team. My bridesmaids all loved them! All of her assistants were awesome and one of them even came to the venue with us to do hair and makeup touch ups. What a GREAT decision. After taking pictures in the sweltering August heat it was great to have her around to touch up myself, the moms, and all the bridesmaids before the big ceremony. Mercedes you and your team are awesome! Thank you so much for being such a big part of our special day! I will recommend you to any of my friends getting married in the future!

Mercedes took forever to answer any call or email. It took her very long to sign the contract, and then she never sent back a copy of it with her signature like we requested. Day of, she showed up and demanded the money before she would begin. My mother was paying and so I had...

She also promised a second person would be coming and they showed up late. Our hair was nice, but she left the second she finished my hair. I wanted the front curled more but she was gone so I tried to do it myself and burnt my forehead. So the entire day I had a huge burn mark on my face. I had to redo the hair to try and hide the burn. This all could've been avoiding if she would've hung around for 5 minutes to make sure I liked it. She had absolutely no bedside manner and was not personable at all. She was hard to talk to and all of the girls would say the same thing. (I had 10 people get their hair done that day) I bought extensions just for the wedding day and she would've even do them. Her and her assistant rushed through and no one was really thrilled with their hair but she was gone before they could say anything. I would absolutely not recommend her.

I had my wedding in May this past year and used Mercedes to do my makeup and hair for the day. She was AMAZING. I loved the trial that I had with her and the makeup on the day of blew me away.

As an Indian bride, there is also the giant task of getting the clothes on (and on putting the dupatta on the head). She is a PRO at Indian weddings! Also, my makeup lasted from 5am until late late that night when I showered and washed my face. It lasted through sweating and everything - I only had to touch up my lipstick every once in while but other than that, it was FLAWLESS. She uses airbrush for the foundation and it makes a HUGE difference. Overall, I would recommend her to ANYONE looking for a makeup and hair artist in the NJ/NYC area. Love her =)
