Mari and Rita are truly THE hair and make-up gurus! The day of my wedding went off without any issues and everything came out beautifully.

Mari and Rita are the BEST! I can't say enough great things about working with them. I was given their name by my venue (Olde Mill Inn) and they were extremely professional, responsive, and thoughtful throughout the entire time we worked together. They did my hair and makeup... Read More for my wedding, along with hair and makeup for my two bridesmaids, flower girl, my mother, and the groom's mother & grandmother. Their prices are very reasonable and a great value. I've actually never had my makeup done professionally so was nervous about it and it was important to me that it look natural but also great in photos! I showed them a few photos and they instantly understood the look I was going for. The look photographed well, and I've never felt prettier! One thing I loved was that they were able to see the looks I liked for my hair and then recommend how to get that look to work for my hair type and length. I had some photos of long side-braids and they showed me how that would look on me (which was pretty good, but didn't have as much volume as I wanted), they then showed me how to get the look exactly like the photos through curling and pining, etc. The final result was perfect and I actually still get compliments from friends and family about it! :) I also loved that they were able to work so well with our entire diverse group - from the 8 year old flower girl to the 80 year old grandmother - and make them all look and feel so great. Mari and Rita do phenomenal work and are also really kind and sweet ladies, so it was fun having them there to be a part of my special day. I would absolutely love to work with them again and highly recommend them for hair and makeup for any special occasion.

I am so glad I used My Cinderella's Dream for my wedding day! I had been in my friend's bridal party and she had used My Cinderella's Dream for her wedding, so I got to see their excellence firsthand before using my them for my own wedding. Mari and Rita were so patient,... Read More professional, and helpful. My bridal party raved about the job they did on their hair and makeup. On my wedding day, my hair and makeup turned out even better than in the trial! It was so convenient to have this friendly duo travel to my house (at a very early time I might add) and have all of us completed by the time the photographers arrived. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for stress-free professionalism and knowledge.

What can I say? These ladies are INCREDIBLE!!!! Mari and Rita are not only tons of fun to work with, but also exceptionally talented and professional. I cannot adequately express how wonderful and accommodating they were throughout the entire process. I planned my wedding in 2... Read More months’ time and although they were already booked for another wedding on my day, they were still willing and able to accommodate me ..even though it meant arriving to my venue at the crack of dawn and working all day! With very little input from me (I really had NO idea what I wanted!!), Mari and Rita were somehow able to create my dream look for me. They did a seriously OUTSTANDING job and I could not have possibly been more pleased. When I arrived at my initial bridal trial, I was completely unprepared as far as ideas but left feeling like a princess, without a worry in the world because I knew they had me covered! On the day of, they arrived very promptly and immediately went to work. I was beyond impressed by how efficiently they operated. These ladies certainly know what they’re doing! I received countless compliments (and still am!) about my appearance. Even my mother who initially tried to convince me to do my own hair/makeup had to admit that everything came together PERFECTLY thanks to My Cinderella’s Dream. As for my husband, well… he was completely stunned! He was a little worried I might come out looking overdone since I don’t usually wear much makeup, but was speechless when he saw how naturally beautiful I looked! I highly recommend them to any and every soon-to-be bride as well as anyone else requiring hair/makeup services.

The most important thing is, I - the bride - felt completely beautiful and absolutely loved my hair & make-up!! Rita did a gorgeous, detailed up-do and my hair looked even better than it had at the trial! Mari did my make-up, including airbrushing. It looked great and lasted very well. They are real artists and pros at what they do! They were on time and got everybody done in exactly the amount of time they'd predicted.

Bhargavi and her team at Cinderella Bridez are, hands down, the BEST in the business.

Read More :) And I was incredibly glad that I did! Bhargavi + team did hair and makeup for my engagement shoot and hair and makeup for myself, my mom and aunt and all of the 8 bridesmaids for the wedding day. I wanted each bridesmaid to feel like she looked her best, so I had each pick out her own hair and look and the Bridez team managed to make everyone look incredible, while still creating cohesion across. Very talented--that's not easy!! The girls were super easy to work with and completely professional--they were there and set up BEFORE we were on the day of. The whole team did an awesome job creating modern, polished hair and glamorous but natural makeup; they managed to create a relaxed, stress-free atmosphere and were very generous about doing touch ups and offering advice as we went. Now for Bhargavi--she is AMAZING! For my wedding day, she did THREE looks (1) for the hindu ceremony, fishtail braid + bright colored lip; (2) for the christian ceremony, classic undo with more natural makeup and (3) for the reception, cascading curls and smoky eye. incredible!!!!! and she did it all in the course of 5 hours. it was a FEAT. but if anyone can pull it off, bhargavi can. i look at the pictures of the wedding and you'd think the looks were all from separate days. each was unique, each was stunning--it was everything i dreamed of. Lastly, want to talk a bit about Bhargavi as a person. She REALLY cares about her clients and doing right by them. I still use the skincare product and advice that Bhargavi recommended when we first met--trust her completely. She's very direct and very honest, but is sincere in how much she cares. Cannot recommend this team highly enough
