Sam and her team (Tina & Tara) far exceeded my expectations! My husband and I planned a destination wedding in Palm Springs, CA from Chicago. It was so seamless working with Sam. She and her team even traveled to Palm Springs the day before to do my Trial before my rehearsal... Read More dinner! They were ready to go Saturday morning, stayed on schedule, and my entire wedding party LOVED their hair & makeup, including myself! Sam did my makeup and Tina did my hair - both fully made my vision a reality. They were fun and great to hang with for the day. And to top it off, Sam and I discovered we went to college together and had many mutual friends! It was meant to be :) I would recommend Sam and her team at Mobile Bridal Salon to anyone needing a traveling hair and make up team in the Southern CA area!!! Thank you Sam, and congratulations on YOUR wedding!!! :)

Samantha and Tina are absolutely incredible and were one of the best decisions I made in the wedding planning process. I fell in love with the way they do makeup in a way that looks natural and stunningly beautiful at the same. Sam did such an incredible job of making me look... Read More like a prettier version of myself. And Tina did a great job with my hair. I had some adjustments to make after the trial, and was a little worried about how it would all turn out. I had no need to be concerned, because Tina took the adjustments and some suggestions from the bridesmaids day-of and made my hair absolutely perfect. My makeup and hair lasted perfectly for the 12+ hours of that day and my husband was happy that my makeup didn’t cover up my freckles or make me look like a different person. They also did a great job with my bridesmaids and mom. They took suggestions from a couple girls who are more girly/fashion-conscious, but I also loved that they were able to just take care of the girls who didn't have ideas of their own. Perfect, low-stress, and fun. On top of all that, Sam was incredibly professional and easy to work with. And both Sam and Tina were a joy to be with during the trial and wedding day. It was like having an extra couple girlfriends in the bridal suite. They were great even down to the little detail of putting on a perfect mix of music, which was great since I had forgotten to bring tunes.

MBS is the absolute best choice for hair and makeup. Samantha and Tina made my bridesmaids and I the best versions of ourselves; they brought out our natural beauty and made us feel glamorous without being "overdone". Beyond their amazing work, here are some other reasons to... Read More consider MBS: 1. Very responsive - Samantha responded to my original inquiry and questions throughout the process in 24 hours. 2. All services in one - No need to book separate companies or services which can get logistically complicated and pricey. I only had to work with Samantha to book everything from trial to day of. 3. It lasts - our hair and makeup made it all day and night through a 100 degree heat wave... It's one thing to look nice for an hour, but there were no issues with hair and makeup lasting long term. 4. They are flexible - I added my mom at the last minute and Samantha was more than accommodating. Additionally, my mom didn't want a traditional updo so Tina gave her a great blowout instead. 5. They are professional and fun - Samantha and Tina felt like part of the bridal party, but still kept us on schedule throughout the day. On a scale of 1-10 MBS is an 11. You will not regret working with them!

I used MBS, Tina, Ashley, Gina and Tara to be exact. I didn't have a huge wedding but I did have a lot of people that needed hair and makeup and in two different locations. MBS was perfect because I was able to hire them and they sent two different teams to the two different... Read More locations.

All I have to say is WOW! Ashley from Mobile Bridal made me look like the beautiful bride I wanted. I was having a really difficult time finding a hair stylist (cancelled trials, already booked, etc) when Mobile Bridal was suggested to me by my planner.They were available, so I... Read More booked with them. Not only did they help me in my time of need, but Ashley came to my house for my hair trial they day before my wedding. She is amazing! Kind, sweet, accommodating but also attentive and highly skilled. Ashley is a professional of the highest degree and it shows in her work. I'd had one other trial done that left me very unhappy. I told Ashley want I wanted (finger waves, but not too period or slicked down) and she created a beautiful hair do for me. It was romantic with a slight nod to the past, but most of all - I felt like me. On the day of, she also styled my sister's hair and made sure that my style wasn't going to budge. My style held the entire day and I was so sad when I had to comb it out. Thank you for making me feel and look so gorgeous! I cannot recommend Mobile Bridal Salon enough to brides (Ashley in particular).

Choosing a hair & makeup artist for your big day is one of the most important decisions you make (not just the day of but will live on forever with pictures and videos). With that, you want a timeless, effortless yet outstanding look that sets you apart from the rest. Sam and... Read More her team at MBS bring that to life in not only the output but before and during the event itself. They are great with the trial (very well worth it) and are willing to try want you want while making good recommendations. Multiple people commented on my makeup saying that it was exactly what they wanted for their own wedding as well. Also, Sam was THE most attentive vendor I worked with during the entire process. She always had a prompt and thorough reply that made life much easier during a busy time! Lastly and definitely not least, she and her team are great to be around! We had a blast and she made the entire prep time fun and stress-free. XO, H+W

Sam (makeup) and Tina (hair) were the BEST. And trust me, I would know after many (!!!) failed hair/makeup trials with other companies. I even had one hair trial with one of Mobile Bridal Salon's hair stylists that, despite her being very capable, just wasn't a great fit for... Read More me/my style, and Sam happily accommodated me by setting me up with a different stylist (Tina) for a 2nd hair trial free of charge - amazing customer service. With Tina's help, I figured out the perfect wedding hairstyle and finally had that OMG moment of feeling like a bride who was ready and confident to walk down the aisle. It's also worth mentioning that she gave me awesome clip-in extensions recommendations/instructions. As for makeup, all i have to say is that Sam is the OPPOSITE of a makeup artist who gives you that gross reality TV makeup look. She made my skin glow, tastefully contoured my bone structure, and made my eyes pop, all without making me look "slutty". Most importantly, though, despite the fact that I kept checking the mirror all night in fear of some smudged eyeliner or an unconcealed blemish - THE MAKEUP STAYED PUT ALL NIGHT. Need I say more? Sam really knows what she's doing. Tina and Sam were both super fun to hang out with and very helpful with suggestions while working out my look - and the morning of the wedding, both of these women were a welcomed positive, and calming presence. It was comforting to work with artists who I trusted 100%. Very happy, highly recommend.

Eek, I passed aka I’m not that into you. I started off with a conversation via the knot website and my only question was do they specialize in afro, ethnic, curly, processed and thick hair, since I did not want to waste anyone's time. I received an immediate response from the... Read More owner Samantha Salk which was great turn around time for me. She introduced her company with 7 paragraphs and never answered my question. I did reply back and asked her to reply to my specific question. Her reply was something along the lines she "has a few artists that specialize in that for updos, cut and color". Answer still wasn't clear so I called her and left her a v.m and she called me and left me a v.m. Few days past and I message her and we arranged to speak yesterday at 10am PST. Samantha called me right on the dot, that is great, very punctual but as soon as she opened her mouth it went downhill from there. I just did not get that warm and fuzzy vibe from her, in fact the conversation seemed rushed, bossy, pushy and inconsistent. After our greeting and a brief introduction, I informed her SEVERAL times that I would like to include my sister into the call since she knows exactly the vision I am going for. Samantha insisted that I do not do so right now and that my sister can email her. Her exact words! Samantha also mentioned that she is not going to speak to the entire bridal party. One would think that a Wedding professional are just that – professional but not in this case. Samantha asked me what style I was looking for and I said, well I have curly hair and I would like the Alicia Keys curly hair style and I also mentioned that her website only reflects styles for straight hair. Samantha mentioned well I havent seen Alicia Keys hair since she is always wearing head wraps now and everyone with curly hair wants straight hair. Not a good start! She also sent me the rate sheet and ensured that I opened and check out the prices to make sure they were okay by me. Prices to me is not a priority, customer service is. Needless to say I entertained her and made an appt that I cancelled an hour later. I did in fact speak with another vendor a few mins after our call and went with them instead. This bride was not going to give them my business. The ironic part is that Mobile Bridal Salon has really great reviews but after 10 mins of talking with an owner that seemed quarrelsome, I went somewhere else.

One person even told me it was a "masterpiece". The style was also very comfortable and held really well through the night (even into the next morning), despite being pretty complicated.

They are beyond wonderful at creating gorgeous glam, whether you give them a couple words of direction or have an exact hairstyle you'd like them to copy. They were extremely punctual (I got married at the Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, which can actually be a little difficult to find) and provided me with a day-of-schedule months in advance, way before any of my other vendors did.

The atmosphere created by the group of MUA's and Hairstylist was great! They were kind, professional and fun. However, the make-up and hair didn't measure up to the same standards. While the primping and styling showed promise of the overall results, my bridesmaids didn't turn... Read More out the way I had asked. It just wasn't 100% there. My Bridesmaids' hair went flat 15 mins within the ceremony. I wanted Old Hollywood Glamour waves. We just got curled hair - no waves. Unfortunately, all of them had to keep getting hair re-touched during the primping and the prepping because their hair was going flat. Some of the girls were putting on their own finishing touches on makeup because they weren't getting the time to get them done by the MUA's booked. I had hair accessories for my BM's that they had to re-do themselves at the ceremony because they weren't sitting right. Between the end of the ceremony and reception, we all ran to my house to re-do hair and touch up our make-up; My eye makeup was smudged. I had black creases on my eyelids and black under my eyes (no waterproof like I was told I would get and I didn't even cry as much to look like I did afterwards) - I had to clean it up; which I was disappointed to have had to do since we booked Mobile Bridal Salon to complete the look for us. I was curling hair in my wedding dress and touching up eyeliner on Bridesmaids. We turned into our own MUA's and hairstylist. What I asked for was simple: waves for my BM's, nude shadow on the creases and simple winged liner. Unfortunately, only about half of my Bridesmaids had winged liner. The others had somewhat of an attempted wing. Some had liquid liner done and on the others black eye-shadow was used. The process wasn't consistent. Sadly my hair fell weak too. I had my BM's re-pin my hair as it started to sag coming out of the ceremony. I didn't even get my veil put in like I was mentioned I would. Maybe it just wasn't meant to be. Mobile Bridal Salon is great in creating a professional relationship with their clients (they were very patient with my adjustments i was making - just was adding/subtracting hair and makeup count); however, the style and makeup just wasn't all there. They set the foundation for us to finish it ourselves. It was pleasant to work with you. I'm just sad we didn't get what we had asked. Thank you!
