Agree...Poor customer service. I tried to get pricing information from MiKel for a month. At the time of my initial inquiry, her stylist had my wedding date available. By the time she finally answered (after multiple follow ups) her stylist was no longer available. She seems... Read More very friendly, but it's very frustrating that the customer must repeatedly reach out for details. The appearance is that she doesn't need or care for the business.

I contact Mikel over a month ago. She took over a week to initially contact me and it has now been 3 weeks since I last heard from her. I have emailed and called many times. I really wanted to use her but I will be using another stylist.

MiKel did my wedding hair/makeup, and her and her assistant did all of my bridesmaids hair as well. I absolutely LOVED my hair and makeup!! All of my bridesmaids loved their hair. When we first spoke it was through email and then when we did our trial she was even sweeter in... Read More person and she talked to me like we had been friends for years. Her and her assistant were on time, prepared and got all of us done with time to spare. Her pricing was a bit higher than other people I looked at but after seeing her work and then experiencing it first hand it, she is worth every single penny!!! I loved everything about my wedding hair and makeup and when I look at pictures now, I love it even more! MiKel is amazing!!


Nailed it!!!

My daughter went to four proms and a number of other formal functions, all with updo's but no one ever captured who she was until MiKel! My daughter sort of knew what she wanted but nothing exactly specific. She left it up to MiKel and it worked great. The trial run for her... Read More bridal session was so spot on we knew we'd have no worries the day of. We had never used airbrush makeup before and our day was a long one starting at 11 in the morning for pictures, going until 10:00 that evening and so worried about it not lasting but Mikel assured us it would and she was right. My daughter has had her makeup professionally applied in the past and although nice, she always had a way of looking more made up but MiKel had her looking covered but soft, natural, comfortable....and no need for a touch up other than lipstick/gloss. She loved it and the groom couldn't believe it. He told her, 'You look so....YOU!' As mother of the bride I thought I knew what I wanted but MiKel very gently, professionally, tactfully let me know without me even realizing it - that my idea was quite young for me, that it would clash with the bridesmaids and that actually she had a look in mind for me....and again, spot on. It wasn't like anything I would've picked for myself but I received many compliments and quickly realized MiKel was right. As for cost, MiKel was a bit more expensive than some we had in the final running but she took time in the beginning not to SELL me on herself but to talk background and thoughts, the process, how it all worked. I felt I got to know her and her story and that mattered to us so overall I feel it was money well spent. Her laid back nature, not over the top manner, professionalism, talent all fit with us. I would definitely use her again without question. The only negative was that early on we kept missing each other via email and phone because she was traveling plus, this was a first for me and so I was a bit impatient. Once things fell into place though everything was great. Again, a very comfortable, laid back interaction.

MiKel is simply amazing! Not only is her beauty technique flawless, she has a way of just knowing what look will take your wedding day to the next level. During my personal experience with Mikel, we met several times before my wedding day. I shared my vision, photos of my... Read More dress and an overall sense of my style. She suggested some ideas to me and some were more daring than my original idea. At first I was nervous, I thought, "hmm a top knot can I actually pull that off?" Well Mikel showed me my options but ultimately let me decide. All she wanted was for me to feel beautiful and comfortable, no pressure. Well in the end, I went with it! I loved the sassy look she helped me attain for my reception and it was just "so me"! She is the ultimate professional and she will ensure you look gorgeous on your wedding day! Not only that, she is also so down to earth. A girls girl for sure! She will be an excellent addition to your list and help make any bride's day absolutely stunning!

MiKel is AWESOME! After looking at MiKel's website, I booked an appointment with her for just a haircut to scope her out and see if I liked her for a potential wedding stylist. I loved her from the beginning! She oozes southern sweetness! We started talking about my wedding... Read More and personal style. We totally clicked....vintage china, farm tables, and soft, feminine romantic colors :) A major positive for MiKel is that she stays true to her brand. She helps brides look classic, southern, natural, and effortlessly beautiful. One example is this: For my trial run, I had a style in mind and MiKel spent about an hour trying. Most stylist would have "made it work" to make the client happy; MiKel knows that each bride's look is an extension of her brand, so thankfully she was honest. She suggested a different style and was completely right. In the end, she made me look exactly like the girl's featured on her website...which is exactly what I wanted :) MiKel is a true professional. After I expressed interest in her wedding day services, she immediately emailed me a pricing sheet. She continued professional communication through email and even text. She had requested my hair "inspiration" sent through email so she could reference it when practicing the style. She arrived prepared and knew exactly how to do my make-up and hair. You could tell she had practiced the style, especially since we didn't do a hair trial. She is the most talented stylist I've ever worked with (and trust me, I've been in ALOT of weddings and gotten a lot of haircuts!), plus her professionalism and honesty is so refreshing during such an important time in a bride's life.
