BOOK NOW! Mindy is incredible, and I cannot say enough nice things about her the the service she provided!
We used Mindy for hair, make-up AND day-of coordination. She was organized, sweet, and made me feel so special on my wedding day. What ...
I loved most about her is how REAL and down-to-earth she is. I felt comfortable knowing that if something wasn't the way I wanted with my hair or make-up she would stop at nothing to make it right. That said, she did such an incredible job listening to me and getting a good sense of the look I wanted that I had no complaints! She and her team did the hair and make-up for my bridesmaids and everyone had glowing reviews!
Mindy switches from hair/make-up to day-of-coordinator in the drop of a hat and does not miss a beat. She made sure that everything looked amazing at our venue before guests arrived and that all of our vendors knew what to put where! One of my vendors insisted on leaving their business cards on each of the dinner tables... they weren't the prettiest/didn't fit with the look of the decor and I would have been so upset if my guests came to their table and found them there. Mindy knew it would have bugged me, so she took care of it! No problems and no ugly business cards! :)
Thank you for helping to make our day INCREDIBLE!!!

I had the pleasure of having Mindy do my hair and makeup trials for my October wedding. She didn't judge me for a second for not knowing anything about makeup, and rather she was very pleasant and non-intimidating to work with. I've had my hair...
and makeup done professionally for other weddings, and even with just this trial I haven't experienced results I was actually really excited about! Mindy and her associate Gabby then did day-of hair and makeup for me, my SIL, and our moms. You're spending several hours in the early morning with your hair and makeup artists so it certainly helps when the artists are a joy to be around. They really helped us have an enjoyable start to my wedding day. All 4 of our hair and makeup were awesome, tons of compliments. Mindy and Gabby are gifted artists and overall very personable women. I highly recommend these ladies!

Mindy = pleasant, professional, efficient and a smooth-running wedding day. She was suggested through our hall, Fountain Blue Banquets in Des Plaines IL, and we are very glad for it!
From the first meeting, my parents, then fiancé and I had a...
good feeling about Mindy. Her professionalism and kind demeanor were the first things I registered, and personally being in a business that deals with customers in potentially stressful scenarios, I can recognize and appreciate that in others. The day of coordination definitely eliminated stress for me, but most importantly my mom because she had worked hard getting to that perfect day and deserved to enjoy it. What also instilled a lot of confidence in me (and what bride couldn't use an extra dash of that on the big day) is that we also used Mindy's hair and make-up team. It eliminates a vendor, and a variable = WIN! Oh and BTW...Mindy did my hair and people are STILL talking about how gorgeous it was. The trial was great because I felt very comfortable exchanging ideas with Mindy and truly felt like she was listening. The end result was that my hair looked better than the picture I showed her; more intricate and therefore, more stunning! I like a classic look with an interesting twist and she made it happen.
As the day approached, my texts became more frequent and her responses were consistently kind and professional. In a few instances she sensed that I was not getting what I may have wanted and she was all over it, very interested in doing what was necessary to change that outcome. Some compromises were made, but of my own determination, and all things went well, but I admired her sincere desire to make sure it was what I pictured on my wedding day!
Beyond the trial, rehearsal, wedding day and great hair that I have already discussed above, Mindy did a few other things I thought were particularly cool:
1. My cousin reached out to Mindy to figure out how to cover the bright purple bottom half of her hair (other than dying back to its original color) and Mindy, of her own accord, researched the option my cousin recommended in order to make the best recommendation on how to handle the situation. She didn't just blindly execute the recommendation nor did she pass-it-off saying "this is not for me to decide". No. She made a point to look it up in detail in order to give a true recommendation.
2. Mindy also told me that she took the time to research traditional Greek Orthodox Wedding Ceremonies to be prepared for the rehearsal/wedding which I thought was not only professionally sound, but also extremely courteous and respectful to me/my husband, my family and the traditions of the ceremony.
3. Mindy was aware of the fact that this was a formal wedding and reception and at the rehearsal asked me about several options for her own attire to make sure it was appropriate for the occasion, and I thought that too was very contentious and thoughtful.
Last tidbit - if the above does not tell you that Mindy is a great investment, a close family friend is having her son's wedding very soon and when I told her about my experience with Mindy leading up to the wedding, she decided a day-of coordinator would be wise too and hired her. When the same family friend saw Mindy in action on my wedding day, she was further convinced that hiring Mindy was the right call. I now look forward to seeing Mindy again at a close friend's wedding and watching her in action from a different perspective :).

Although I have had the privilege to know Mindy personally, I want to point out that in NO way is this review biased. I had seen many photos of her work after I got engaged and even though I was extremely happy when she offered to do my makeup...
/hair, I still had no idea what to expect. I tend not to not wear a lot of make-up on an everyday basis and my hair is baby fine so it doesn't hold curls very well. This made me unsure if anyone would be able to recreate the picture of what I was looking for.
Well, lemme tell you, Mindy and her magic hands proved me wrong! She was extremely patient and truly listened to what I was going for. After offering a few of her own suggestions (which I welcomed!) we came up with a great updo and I had my first trial. I was so happy with the results, but then a couple weeks before the wedding, I suddenly decided to switch it up on her. I decided I wanted my hair down instead of up, yet I really wanted to preview it in case I didn't like how it came out. However, I was worried because I didn't know if she would be able to do a second trial with such short notice and so close to the wedding. But Again, my girl Mindy impressed me and we scheduled a second trial!! And wow, I'm so glad she did because I was even more pleased with my hair styled down!
Fast forward to the actual wedding day...it's almost hard to put into words how amazing it went and how confident she made me feel. Plus, not only had she already done a whole wedding party earlier that day (before she did mine) but she STILL managed to arrive on time, alert, positive, and energetic, completely ready to make me appear as beautiful as the look in my husband's eyes when he first caught sight of me walking down the aisle.
Honestly, Mindy's talent is the real deal!! If I could have her as my glam squad everyday, I'd probably have to peel my husband away from me! The best part about all this is that I will have pictures for a lifetime to show off my look that, without Mindy, I'd have never been able to pull off as effortlessly as I did!
Thanks again, Mindy!!

On the wedding day, Mindy arrived on-time and came to my hotel room to set up for the day. She was very pleasant and professional during our whole experience. I wasn't 100% satisfied with my up-do the first time she did it and she took it all out and started over. Two of my bridesmaids had planned on having their hair half-down but it was clear after a few hours that their curls wouldn't stand the humidity of Puerto Vallarta. Again, with a positive, professional attitude, Mindy had them sit back down and in just minutes pulled their hair up, keeping the style they were looking for but able to withstand the weather.
My make-up held perfectly throughout the night. Even after a 3-hour dance party, I still felt happy and confident to have my photo taken.
Thank you, Mindy!

My experience with Mindy was full of suprises! Mindy did so much more than beautiful hair and make-up for my wedding. To start, I had 6 bridesmaids in addition to myself for Mindy to complete up-do's on. I threw Mindy a curve ball and decided t...
o change from an up-do to half up the day of the wedding. Without hesitation, Mindy said "No problem, my love." She went off the cuff and it was perfect! I would say Mindy has the perfect effortless up-do style that everyone wants for a wedding. No Helmet hair is not her MO!All my girls' hair was so beautiful, and different!! She doesnt repeat styles on each girl. She is so full of ideas. Most impportantly, Mindy is HILARIOUS, ok? She just makes the getting ready process so fun! We laughed all morining which really helped calm my nerves :)
After my picutres and before the reception, I changed my mind once again after all the humidity that day. We called Mindy and asked if she could possibly turn my half-do into a full updo and there she was, in the bathroom, with her full bag of tricks and without taking my hair completely down, she tranformed it into a full updo that lasted the entire night! Dancing and all. As if that wasn't enough, half-way through the reception, I stepped on my hem and ripped a seam. Yep, I turn around and Mindy was there with saftey pins to make-shift my dress to get me through the night. All of this with smiles and excitement and a "not to worry". Mindy truely was the SuperWoman of my wedding. Thanks, Mindy! Love you girl :)

al, but Mindy was so patient and helpful throughout the entire process and was always offering insight and suggestions for me. On the actual wedding day, my hair looked fantastic, as did the clip that Mindy made specifically to match my earrings! I wore it down for photos and the wedding but she also put my hair up after I had been dancing - it looked effortless and was much easier to rock on the dance floor! :)
Not only was Mindy so helpful and friendly to me, but I had 5 friends, a mother-in-law, and a 4 year old niece that all also got their hair done by Mindy and everyone loved their looks! The entire bridal party looked wonderful and chic, and Mindy's clips definitely added a personal touch. Mindy was quick, super professional, and also a great presence to have around on my wedding day. She is talented, helpful, and fun! I would recommend her in a heartbeat for any bride and I can only hope to be lucky enough to have her style me again soon!

ame on site to our hotel in Libertyville, Illinois early in the morning. She was patient and took the time to find a unique and flattering hairstyle for each individual. My hair was amazing and fit me perfectly. Mindy even met me before the wedding, at my convenience, to do a trial run. Mindy is incredibly talented and truly exceeded any, and all expectations. When I have had my hair done for other weddings, there was always at least one person who was dissatisfied or disappointed with their final product. I can honestly say that this was not the case for my wedding. Mindy’s creativity, focus, attention to detail, and ability to listen to her clients make her an exceptional hairstylist and business professional.
