Words cannot describe how beautiful I felt on the day of my wedding. Brenda went above and beyond with everything. My hair and makeup were out of this world beautiful in every way. I felt like a model out of vogue, literally. She was professional, honest, super nice and knows... Read More her stuff. She gave me recommendations on hair extensions (only because I got a little too much cut off prior to the wedding and wanted a little more length) and was honest with me every step of the way. I typically don't wear too much makeup (very little) and she was upfront with me with the pictures I had shown her. She wanted me to feel like myself on my wedding day with a touch of glam. My hair and makeup was magical-Romantic makeup and classy bun-perfect in so many ways. I wish I could have her as a personal stylist daily. I will definitely use her again in the future. You will not be disappointed if you choose her!!

Brenda is THE ABSOLUTE BEST!! First and foremost, she is actually RESPONSIVE!! When I sent her an email, I would hear back by the next business day. When I was looking for a hair/makeup person I found this to be a shockingly rare quality! Not only was she responsive, but she... Read More was SO patient. I had what felt like a million questions and changed my mind constantly. She was nothing but a complete sweetheart. She answered every single question in detail and made numerous suggestions that I found to be so helpful. She was happy to do two trials after I completely changed the look I was going for. She made me feel so comfortable! I absolutely LOVED my look for the day of my wedding and all of my bridesmaids and the mothers felt the same. Brenda listens to what you're going for and is a true perfectionist! Everyone looked gorgeous. I can't recommend her enough!! It will be the best decision you make for your wedding day :)

Brenda is the best choice for hair and makeup in Northern Michigan! As MOH, getting tasked with choosing hair and makeup for my sister's wedding was quite a daunting task. From my initial conversation with Brenda, I knew that she was who I wanted with us on the big day. We were... Read More on an accelerated timeline and not once did I feel stressed or overwhelmed. Brenda has this amazing ability to put you at ease and leave you confident that everything will work out. Brenda's team is extremely responsive and can only really be described as an extension of the bridal party. They worked through any and all requests we had leading up to the week of the wedding. We scheduled the hair and makeup trial the Thursday before the wedding. Brenda worked with my sister to identify what would look best on her. Brenda did an amazing job at taking into consideration what the bride was envisioning, while showcasing her talent of identifying what would look best. My sister was so happy leaving the trial - not only did her hair and makeup look exactly as imagined, but Brenda's attitude and demeanor put her at ease during a very stressful week. The wedding day was even better - I have never seen my sister look more beautiful than she did that day and that was largely due to Brenda. Her hair and makeup were simultaneously both natural looking and the best I had ever seen them look. All 5 ladies looked amazing thanks to Brenda's team. They were prompt and professional, helping us all to relax a little that day. Without a doubt, if you are planning to get married in Northern Michigan, Brenda is your best choice for hair and makeup. I will recommend her to all friends/family/coworkers/anyone that will listen! Thanks again Brenda!

Brenda did a phenomenal job with my wedding make-up.
