Mariel was so awesome to work with on my wedding day. She answered all my emails on time. We first met at my hair and makeup trial. She listened to what my vision was and made it come to life. The day of my wedding she arrived right on time. She is organized which I love and had... Read More a schedule for me and all my bridesmaids so we were all done on time. The day of the wedding she listened to the changes I wanted to make from the trial and my hair and makeup came out perfect! She also helped me with my veil and hair piece to make sure it turned out perfect. Myself and the the bridesmaids looked amazing in all my pictures and I can't thank Mariel and her team enough. I highly recommend her for your wedding day if you want to feel absolutely beautiful on your wedding day. She is very highly skilled in what she does and I would love to work again with her in the future!

Mariel is nothing short of amazing. When I first got engaged, I reached out to an old high school classmate of mine, a hair and makeup professional in the entertainment industry, to see if she had any recommendations for bridal beauty, and boy did she deliver! Mariel was so... Read More sweet from our first email exchange, and I knew right away I was going to be in good hands. As coincidence has it, I learned that a friend of my mother's used Mariel for her bridal hair and makeup, and she had nothing but wonderful things to say about her. My thoughts were confirmed when we met for my trial. I showed Mariel a few photos of various hairstyles and makeup looks that caught my eye, and she seamlessly blended everything together to create the perfect look for me. On my wedding day, she replicated the style from my trial, and I honestly couldn't have been happier with the results - it was truly the most beautiful that I have ever felt in my entire life. My bridesmaids were also absolutely thrilled with their own styles, and let me tell you - I had one gorgeous bridal party! Mariel is kind, personable, attentive and extremely talented. She will listen to what you want and will give you exactly what you are looking for, but she also makes suggestions and gives you her professional opinion if and when you ask for it. If you utilize Mariel and her awesome team for your bridal hair and makeup, I promise you will not be disappointed!

Marielle is a gifted hair and makeup artist (seriously an artist using a 3-D canvas) but where she really stands out is her ability to connect with people and make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed, which is INCREDIBLY important because she will be with you immediately... Read More before the event! We had a last minute snag with our venue and everyone was kind of tense when Marielle and her assistant came in--they immediately helped us feel calmer and, of courses, prettier! I really appreciated how they worked with everyone to figure out what kind of hair and makeup they wanted, especially me---I don't usually wear makeup or do my hair elaborately so I had no idea what I wanted, but Marielle helped guide me expertly and my makeup and hair were *perfect*. I danced so much that I was definitely sweating, but my makeup never even smudged, and my hair stayed in perfectly. also just one thing I have to note that demonstrates how far Marielle will go to ensure you have the perfect look: i had a piece of food stuck in my teeth that I couldn't get out, and she went in there with a disposable makeup brush and got it out for me--she will literally do anything for you. Thank you!!!!!

She is extremely talented and used her high quality products to make me feel beautiful and still was able to give me a natural look with make up and the soft, elegant hair style that I wanted.... Read More Besides her talent, her extremely organized and calm manner was what gave me the most confidence in her work. From our first conversation about how to make the morning work she was on top of knowing exactly what she would be doing and how she would do it down to the minute.

Mariel's easy going personality and encouragement that everything would work out fine (and it did!) really kept me at ease on a day that could easily be so hectic. Mariel was also very accommodating when I requested a trial. I am not in her area and she was sure to meet me in a convenient central location to provide me with the trial I wanted. She was early and ready with all her equipment as soon as I entered the room! I felt like my best self on my wedding day and have Mariel to thank for it!
