There aren't enough stars to rate Melissa and her team, the ultimate dream team! I did a lot of research to find the best hair and makeup team for my wedding. Melissa D'Aloia & Co. stood out to me so I reached out to them inquring about hair an...
d makeup for my big day. I learned that Melissa herself is available on my day so I immediately booked a makeup trial with her. About one week later I reached out to Melissa and asked her to draw up a contract. I informed her that I want her and her team to be a part of my big day, and that I want to sign a contract to secure my date.
Some think it's ballsy to sign a contract before having trials but in this case it's wise. Melissa is the absolute best in the business! A lot of brides think their makeup artist is the best but I know my makeup artist is the best! Melissa has years of experience in and throughout the industry and her work has been most recognized by ABC 7 Liz Cho & The Eyewitness News Team. Her credits include Men in Black 3, NBC Today Show, Access Hollywood, Rachel Ray Show, VH1, MTV, etc. Melissa has worked backstage each season for NYC Fashion Week with designers such as Nanette Lepore, Alice & Olivia, working alongside Max Gengos helping him create perfect looks for his designs. Some of Melissa's clients are Kelly Ripa, Regis & Joy Philbin, Michael Phelps, Nick Jonas, Jerry O'Connell, Lisa Hartman & Clint Black. I knew Melissa and her team would work with me to make sure I love my hair and makeup, not just like it. If Melissa can't make you look and feel your best no one can. Look no further than Melissa D'Aloia & Co. for your big day. Sign a contract with them ASAP; you won't regret it, but you'll regret not booking them for the day you need to look your best.
I loved my makeup so much after my trial and I loved it even more the day of my wedding. There are no words to describe Melissa's work. My makeup was gorgeous! It was completely flawless! I cried and my makeup went no where. It lasted all night. Melissa also did makeup for my mom, sister, and some of my bridesmaids and they were all happy with her work! Melissa is not only incredibly talented but also a sweetheart. She listens to your vision while making recommendations based on her expertise. She will make sure you're happy before you get out of her chair. Elena did makeup for the rest of my entourage and did an amazing job! We all loved our makeup! If Melissa got sick or was unable to do my makeup due to an emergency, I would've been just as happy with Elena.
Something I admire about Melissa and her team is that there is no ego involved. They're confident about their work, not cocky! They're supportive of one another; they don't compete against each other. All pricing is the same. Melissa D'Aloia & Co. is an incredible group of ladies!
I loved my hair as much as my makeup. I had two hair trials both which I was satisfied with. I decided to wear my hair all up; I thought it would look best up with the style of my dress. Melissa and Kelly agreed. Kelly did my hair and she is just as amazing as Melissa. After my second hair trial I was no longer pondering about how to wear my hair. My wedding hair came out perfect and it lasted all night. Kelly also did hair for my mom, sister, and some of my bridesmaids, and they were all so happy with her work! Sherinne did hair for the rest of my bridesmaids and did a beautiful job also. Melissa, Elena, Kelly, and Sherrine were a pleasure to work with! Melissa D'Aloia & Co. thank you!
