Melissa is out of this world talented. She's been a friend of mine since our early elementary school days, and it was pure joy to have her apart of our day. Her hands work magic seamlessly.. from a girl who doesn't wear much makeup or do much with my hair, she took my natural...

She is timely, organized, detailed, efficient and the happiest hair/makeup artist you'll ever come across. Our wedding day was perfect in every way and thanks to Melissa, it got started on the right foot! Trust me, you won't be disappointed in being in the hands of Melissa Marie.

Melissa did my hair, as well as both the MOB and MOG and 3 bridesmaids for our wedding last summer. Everyone's hair looked natural and elegant. She is professional, talented, reasonably priced and fun! I highly recommend Melissa for any bride!

Melissa Marie was amazing! I felt like she was there for me every step of the way.

Bride to mama to be

Reviewed on 9/28/2013 Vanessa W

I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa at a bridal fair and fell in love with not only her personality but her beautiful work. I booked a trial with her and really left it up to her to decide what would look good with my dress and my hair piece. I knew I was in great hands... Read More leaving this responsibility up to her. When she was done she showed me my hair and I was in tears because it was even more beautiful than I could gave imagined. My dress was all lace and had a very beautiful open back to it, so she diced to curl it and pin it up in a low bun off to the side. It was very soft and romantic looking which was exactly what I had hoped for. So obviously I hired her for the big day!!! Hair lasted all day and even in to the next, it was perfect! She was very professional, punctual, and was worth every penny!!! I loved Melissa and my hair for my wedding so much that 3 years later I hired her to do my hair for my "breakfast at Tiffany's" themed baby shower. I looked and felt just like Holly Golitely!! Thanks Melissa for being in all these big moments in my life!!

Always a Bridesmaid

Reviewed on 9/16/2013 Tamara (Tami) C

I have had the honor of serving as a bridesmaid in 7 different weddings. I have experienced a wide range of hairstylists and make-up artists and I can say without a doubt that Melissa is the best hairstylist I have had the pleasure of working with. My sister first hired her... Read More and one other woman to style her entire wedding party seven years ago. Unfortunately, the first attempt at my hair was by the other woman hired that day and it didn't go well. Lucky for me, Melissa was there to fix it! She is really great at tuning in to your personality and the look you want to achieve. If you're open to it, she will also offer suggestions that she, in her infinite wisdom and experience, knows will work well with your hair. Since that first wedding seven years ago, I have been going to Melissa for my hair on a regular basis. She has also done hair for the bride and entire wedding party at my brother and sister-in-law's wedding more recently. She did a phenomenal job at making the bride and all of the wedding party look incredible. I have never seen my sister-in-law look more glamorous and beautiful and she also gave me my all-time favorite hair style that day. I wish I could afford to hire her as my personal hair stylist! Melissa really knows what she is doing. She has her finger on the pulse of the fashion trends and has mastered modern and contemporary looks as well as very glamorous, vintage, retro and traditional looks. I highly recommend her as a very reliable and talented stylist.

Reviewed on 5/26/2013 Susan P

Not only was Melissa timely, professional, fun and lovely, she listened to everything I said and turned a photo out of a magazine into me! I had done a trial run with another stylist and not liked the experience or outcome. I did a trial with Melissa and figured out how I needed... Read More to cut and color my hair to achieve the look I wanted. The result was I got huge compliments on my hair (not your normal updo) and best of all my groom thought it was stunning. I would work with her again in a heartbeat, and you should, too. In this market when you add "wedding" to the front of anything and suddenly the price goes way up, Melissa is very reasonable.

Thank you so much Susan for such a nice review. Sarah and I still talk about our season starting out so great because of you. You were such a dream bride to work with and truly did look like goddess, so beautiful.
