I really enjoyed my experience with Megan Cary. Megan coordinated all the details with my wedding plannner and responded to correspondences promptly. I especially liked that the company coordinated both hair and makeup as most companies only specialize in one or the other. I... Read More lucked out in getting matched up with Rachel to do my hair and makeup and Morgan to do makeup for all my bridesmaids. It was extremely serendipitous since Rachel had been living in my hometown Atlanta and was able to do my trial there. The wedding was in Colorado. The ladies arrived promptly and we got started. I had never met Morgan before the wedding, but was quickly impressed with her skills. Rachel was very flexible and styled all my bridesmaids as they requested. When it was my turn I threw her a curveball and asked her to try something different than what we did at the trial. She killed it! I can’t tell you how many compliments I got on my hair and the updo stayed in place perfectly all through the night! We were running short on time so Rachel suggested I use Morgan for my makeup (the plan was for Rachel to do both my hair and makeup). Morgan was amazing and surpassed my expectations. The makeup was beautiful (and I’m a very picky client as I have professional makeup artists work on me all the time). I highly suggest using Megan Cary and her artists!

I had trouble at first finding a makeup artist and stylist that would accommodate my large bridal party (8 bridesmaids, myself and my mom) who all needed makeup and majority needed hair done as well. Megan provided 2 stylists who were able to do us all and everyone looked... Read More amazing. Annie did my hair and makeup and I couldn't have been happier. I decided to change my hair last minute, and it turned out exactly how I wanted it, even though I had a hard time describing and putting it into words. The makeup and hair stayed all night! They were professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend working with Megan if you have a large bridal party :)

Working with Megan Cary Artistry was awesome! It was so easy and all of my ladies loved how their hair and makeup turned out. My husband and I did a morning ceremony, and even though we all met at 5am, Joey and Mo were so fun and we had a great time. They listened to what each...

I did a hair and makeup trial before hand, but ended up deciding on a veil and changed my hair a bit afterwards, and Joey was totally unfazed and went with the flow. Highly recommend!

Megan Cary Styling did the hair and makeup for my wedding this summer and I truly wanted to like this company, especially after seeing all of the great reviews. They fell very short, which led me to almost cancel my service and lose my deposit one month before my wedding. The... Read More good: Nicole did a great job with makeup and was very sweet with all of the girls. They did arrive early and had us ready exactly on time. Megan did a great job with the girls hair and was friendly as well. The Bad: Basic communication and business organization are not a strong suit. My stylists changed twice, my appointment times were forgotten, they could not provide all of the services agreed to in the original contract, and the company kept adding costs that were not in the original contract. I will spare the details but my hair stylist could not do anything close to the pictures I showed during the trial, requiring me to change the hair style and pay for a second trial. Lastly and most importantly, my hair started falling out before we even got to the venue . The company requires a 50% deposit before doing a trial so there is no way to try out a stylist before committing. All and all, they get 3 stars, but I would not recommend them to a friend, especially for the cost. Based on my experience, the company needs a stronger foundation for business organization.

Megan Cary was absolutely wonderful to work with for my wedding hair and makeup. She was super accommodating and helpful as I decided what type of makeup package I was interested in. On the day of my wedding in Denver, CO my stylist Lisa arrived 5 minutes early, prompt and... Read More excited to get started at 8:30am. :) She was super friendly, and didn't mind that most of the bridal party was running around the house, also getting ready the entire time. Lisa really listened to what style I was hoping for, and did a beautiful updo that emphasized my waves. She practiced with my veil too in order to be sure all would stay put once I finished getting ready at the venue. She also did natural looking makeup that made me feel so beautiful, but not overly made up. My makeup lasted all through my wedding into the late hours of dancing. Lisa was easy to chat with, so kind, and I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
