Just Wonderful!!Reviewed on 4/18/2013 Kelli B
I spend the most time looking for vendors on the hair and makeup stylist. I seriously scoured websites for MONTHS. It was a large expense and I wanted it perfect. I looked over One Bridal Co. as one of the first vendors but was weary because the price was rather high. I later decided to do a trial for the wedding (1/12/13) and I completely changed my mind. Ami did my hair and makeup on both days (the trial and the wedding) and it couldn't have been more perfect. She listened to what I wanted and was open for my opinion. At the trial I decided that I wanted to do a half-up do for the ceremony and put it all up for the reception. Since they were at the same place (Hotel Baker in St. Charles, a few block from the salon) Ami offered to come to the hotel and put it up for me. I was planning on having one of my bridesmaids do it but this was much better. She came exactly on time when I needed her and put it up in a perfect style. I could not have been happier. There are a few aspect of a wedding that are worth the expense and your hair and makeup should be one of them. They are completely worth every cent. I had such a great experience.
Perfect!!!Reviewed on 7/14/2011 Melissa F
I absolutely loved working with Ami and her team!!! I knew after Ami did my hair and makeup trial she was the perfect person to work with on my wedding day! She did hair and airbrush makeup for my entire bridal party, we all looked amazing and had the BEST time hanging out before the ceremony. I highly reccomend Ami and her team for gorgeous hair and makeup and worry free service - they are amazing!
Ami , Cassie, and all the ladies at One Bridal Company gave me the perfect start to my wedding day! They made us feel so at home at the salon and were so inviting. My whole wedding party had the place to ourselves and everyone had such a good time. All the ladies were so friendly and easy going. They were so accommodating and receptive to the vision that each girl had for their hair and makeup. They made myself and all my bridesmaids feel and look so beautiful! Everyone was so happy with how their hairdo's turned out. I couldn't have imagined a better experience. These ladies are true artists with what they do and they do it so tastefully. There is no one else I would've trusted to get me ready for my wedding day. Thank you to Ami and all the girls at One Bridal Company, we love you!
I reached out to One Bridal Salon & Co. on the recommendation of a friend who had been married recently. I am so happy I did because these girls made my wedding day so special! They traveled into Chicago to do hair and make-up for me, my 4 bridesmaids, my mom, and MIL. They were incredibly patient with everyone’s needs and requests, and made us all feel SO beautiful. All of our hair and make-up held up all day and night, despite the insane heat of our July wedding. My maid of honor was joking that we should have included Kristy as a fifth bridesmaid because she was so fun to have around! I would recommend these women for wedding hair & make-up to anyone!
The team at One Bridal Company is prompt, organized, and professional from your very first inquiry, to the last spritz of hairspray on your big day! Cassie and Alexa answered all of my questions and helped me schedule both hair and makeup services for me and my bridesmaids. Alexa did my trial as well as my day-of hair/lashes, and I truly appreciated how she listened and created exactly what I wanted! It definitely lessened my anxiety. Becki and Yadi were our two other stylists, and both did a great job! The girls were on time, set up within minutes, and laughed and joked with us the entire time we got ready! They were an integral part of making my big day run smoothly. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who is getting married! Thanks One Bridal Company!
I booked Ami on the spot during my trial. We just clicked right away. I didn't decide exactly how I wanted my hair until the morning of. I just let her do her thing. I said all down wand-curls. I'm so happy with how it turned out. People always see me with my hair down but never with that type of texture. It was awesome! And my lashes....so big and glamorous. Ami was wonderful to chat with and gave me a once in a lifetime look. I highly recommend her.
I cannot say enough good things about working with Ami and her team for my wedding hair and makeup. I initially did my trial hair and makeup with Alexa, but wasn't really completely happy with the makeup trial. Ami called me the day after and said she would do my makeup herself. I came in for a free trial with her. We experimented with my wedding look and the day of the wedding I changed it up again and had her soften up my look and it turned out beautifully! Alexa still did my hair and I couldn't have been more pleased with the final result. I had a morning wedding, so 5 of us showed up at 6AM with 3 stylists. All of them did a great job and were very attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend working with Ami and her team!
Cassie K., Alexa, and Kristi, were all so wonderful to work with on my wedding day. They made my bridesmaids, mom, and MILs look wonderful with great hair and makeup. Cassie and Alexa were great from the hair/makeup trial and on. Cassie made it possible for me to come in again and again until I felt comfortable with the overall look for the big day. Great salon and even better people!
The wonderful experience with One Salon started at my hair & makeup trial. Alexa was my stylist and listened to exactly what I wanted, tweaking things here and there until I was totally satisfied. The day of the wedding, Alexa and two of her colleagues came to my parents' house in St. Charles and did the hair and makeup of my entire bridal party. They were professional, organized, and most importantly, everyone was thrilled with how their hair & makeup turned out. Alexa and her team did a phenomenal job. I'd recommend One Salon to anyone!
I picked One Salon & Bridal Co. for my wedding after my sister used them in June 2015 and we had a great experience. My sister's wedding was right down the street in St. Charles...mine was 90 minutes away in New Buffalo, MI! But One Salon & Bridal company was happy to come out and take care of us 5 ladies anyway. Alexa and Becki did the hair and makeup for our entire crew and everyone was thrilled! I was more of a diva in the trial than I expected as I don't wear much makeup or pay much attention to my hair so I kept having Alexa change it to look softer and more like me and I was SO happy with the final product! My mom looked so glamorous, same with mother of the groom, maid of honor and bridesmaid. I would definitely recommend working with Becki & Alexa!
I had my hair and makeup done by Katie Phelps when I served as the maid of honor in my best friend's wedding. Katie was fun, professional and easygoing. She gave me exactly what I asked for and both my makeup and hair looked flawless the whole evening. I'd highly recommend Katie for her upbeat attitude and her willingness to work with her clients to make them look their best!
I recently got married at Two Brothers Round House in Aurora IL. I live in Chicago and a friend recommended Katie Phelps at One Salon and Spa. I was nervous about finding someone to trust to do my hair and make up. When I met Katie for my consultation she was so kind and flexible to what I wanted and what is possible with my flat thin hair. I left the consultation happy and relieved. The day of the Wedding she came to my hotel room early so she could set up. She did both my hair, my mom, and maid of honor as well. She did my hair first and then finished my make up as the camera guys and videographer arrived. She kept me calm as the room got crowded and crazed. Katie didn't skip a beat as I change my eye shadow choice spontaneously at the last minute. My hair was soft and pretty like I asked and stayed put all night long! Katie knows what she is doing and was beyond professional. She was kind,supportive, and talented all the things I needed her to be. Thanks you Katie and I would recommend her to anyone she rocks!
Alexa did my hair and make-up for my 6/20/2015 wedding. She did a fantastic job! I felt radiant and beautiful the whole night. I would recommend Alexa and the entire One Bridal staff, as my mom and bridesmaids loved their hair and make-up too! Thank you!!
I was ecstatic to have someone I trust with my hair and make up (it's a bonus that I also genuinely like Ami and her team as a people) travel 2 hours for my wedding day! Ami brought Katie and both were fabulous (professional and so accommodating) throughout the day! Everyone's hair and make up held up throughout the night (hottest day of the year in Madison, WI and no AC) and looked beautiful. The girls went lighter on ladies who were less accustomed to wearing make up and everyone looked natural but gorgeous (nothing cakey or glittery). I felt abolsolutely spoiled. My hair was perfect. I would recommend One Salon over and over again.
I recently worked with One Bridal Company for my August wedding. I really enjoyed working with them. My makeup/hair artist was Katie and she was great. When I called concerned that two stylists wouldn't be enough for my bridal party, they were very accommodating and sent three stylists instead. My only negative would be that I didn't get a written invoice, and that was a little confusing when I had to put 50% down, and then pay the total in full before the wedding. It would have been nice to have an invoice to keep track of everything! Overall, I would highly recommend One Bridal for your wedding hair and makeup, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
i used One Bridal Company for hair/makeup services on my wedding day for myself and my wedding party. They did a beautiful job! Each stylist was professional and committed to making each person feel beautiful. Thank you so much!
I love how Katie did my hair for my wedding day. She listened to what I was looking for, and exceeded my expectations. It drizzled several times throughout the day of my wedding, but we still took photos outside. I was worried it would ruin my hair, but Katie did such an amazing job, it still looked great. At the end of the night, my hair looked exactly the same as it did earlier in the day. I think that says a lot about how talented Katie is. She is wonderful at what she does, and I definitely recommend her services.
I used One Bridal for my wedding makeup this June and was very happy with the quality of the service and professionalism of the artists. Alexa and Rhonda were the artists for the day. We had seven women who got their makeup done, all of which were happy with how beautiful they looked. The artists arrived on time and got everyone done in the time frame that was projected. The makeup lasted the entire night (through the sweat and tears). I would definitely recommend One Bridal to any future brides that want to have one less thing to worry about on their big day!
Hair and Makeup at Home!Reviewed on 7/06/2015 Sophia W
I had hair and makeup done for myself(bride), my mom and all 6 of my bridesmaids on the day of my wedding at my parents home. It was so relaxing to have it at home. We had brunch in the morning. Four stylists came to the house and were done with plenty of time. They even had time to do hair and make up for my brother's girlfriend which we hadn't originally planned. They were fun, easy going and listened that the girls in my wedding party didn't want a ton of eye makeup. Alexa did a great job on my hair and makeup. I made an adjustment from when we had done the trial and she added just what I wanted. While it is a bit pricey I was told by many who came that morning that it was the most relaxing wedding morning they had ever been to which to me made it totally worth it!
I had two stylists working on eight hairdos for my bridal party as well as make up for me. The five junior bridesmaids hair were adorable and all were happy despite not looking exactly like the picture one provided. My makeup was flawless and I loved my hair; but my stylist did put my veil in backward so the hem was showing instead of the jewels. It ruined the hair a bit when I had to take it out after she left (I didn't realize it until pictures were starting), but overall the style was still in place and it still looked good. Overall, I'd say solid work and a pleasure to be around.
The BEST for Hair and MakeupReviewed on 3/30/2015 Kristen S
I love Ami and her crew. I came in for a hair and makeup trial and left feeling like I had known Ami for years. I came in an additional two times just to try different hairstyles - I could not make up my mind. Every time I came back Ami was reassuring and supportive and did a great job. I also got my eyelashes done by Amanda - first I got them tinted, then I got extensions - obsessed. Amanda had me laughing the entire time I was on the table getting my lashes done - which - for a full eyelash extension set is approximately 2 hours. Everyone at One Bridal Company is talented and sweet and FUNNY...great people, great company. I'm terribly sad I'm moving out of state - I want to take them all with me.
A Beautiful BrideReviewed on 11/22/2014 Stephanie P
Patti did the hair and makeup for not only myself but also for a very good friend and my mother for my wedding. She was on time, patient and creative. I decided to adjust hairstyle the last minute and Patti's creation both in hair and make up made the three of us stunning by still like ourselves. Wish I could have this done everyday if Patti was the one to do it! Thank you so much!
Fantastic hair and makeup!Reviewed on 11/09/2014
Ami did an outstanding job on my hair and makeup for my Sept 26, 2014 wedding. She did a great job at accenting my natural features with my makeup without going over the top gaudy. My hair looked amazing too! I referenced a picture from a previous wedding she did, and it came out looking even better than the original. She was also good at listening to my feedback about adding more volume to my hair, which is usually how I wear it. Alexa also did my sister and niece's hair (flower girl). She said she wanted a princess Elsa hair-do from Frozen (side twists and a bun) and she nailed it! Absolutely adorable! Just an all around great experience and very sweet and caring staff!
One Bridal Co. made it a perfect day!Reviewed on 10/24/2014 Dawn T
My daughter (MOH) and I had our hair and make-up done at One Bridal Co. and we couldn't have been happier with the results. We loved the atmosphere at the salon and everyone was professional and fun. We brought pictures of hair styles to our hair & make up trials and we got the exact styles we wanted. My hair stayed put all day in July! Highly recommended.
Wedding transformation was complete!Reviewed on 10/21/2014
Paty Ramirez at One Salon has been my daughter's and my hair stylist and color genius for over 12 years. With my eldest son's wedding on 10/18/14, my daughter and I would not trust anyone else with the task of making us look and feel our best for such a special day. Paty, as always, came through for us in a big way! She came in bright and early (7:30 a.m.!) to make sure we both had plenty of time to get our hair and makeup done and still leave us time to get dressed and head into Chicago for the wedding events! We were both very pleased with our hairstyles - my 26 yr old daughter chose to keep her hair long and curled, and Paty put mine up in a classic French twist. Paty air brushed our makeup, so we looked great and better yet, we felt beautiful! Our hair and makeup stayed fresh the entire day. Thanks again to Paty and One Salon! For a major life event such as a wedding, or for any day in between, you can't go wrong at One Salon and Bridal Company!
