I can't get over how amazing Davina (both as an all around sweet and awesome human being and her crazy amount of talent) and her team are. As soon as I met her, she asked all the right questions and proceeded to immediately nail both hair and make-up. She and her team know...

It doesn't go unnoticed how much you put into this and what a truly great person you are!

Amazing. Pomp & Artistry contributed HUGELY to the success of my wedding day.

I had a morning wedding which required Davina and her team to arrive at my apartment 5:45am. She was punctual, organized, and SO helpful! I absolutely loved my hair and makeup! It was such a relief to have that part of my wedding day totally taken care of---and executed so well! I had 6 bridesmaids, 2 junior bridesmaids, myself, and my mom getting hair/makeup done. Everybody looked flawless and we were all so happy to be feeling like our best! Davina and her team listened to us and they were very fun to have there while we were all getting ready together. Wedding planning can be stressful but the wedding day shouldn't be, mine sure wasn't! A big THANK YOU to Davina and Pomp & Artistry!

My experience with Pomp & Artistry was horrible. I searched for services in the area of Holland knowing I would not be able to do any kind of trial beforehand as we live in Kentucky. The reason I chose their services, was because of the amazing reviews & awards on The Knot, &... Read More because the prices seemed reasonable. I was willing to spend a lot of money to have someone make me look amazing on my big day. I was detailed in my contract & emailed pictures. Let me tell you what I got. I had a terrible time getting in touch w/ Davina in the few weeks before my wedding which was very stressful. She didn't even have my contract or the email prepared when she spoke to me. 12:30 they stylists arrive on time day of. We were not sure where they would want to set up in the house we were staying in & when I started giving them options they just stood & stared at me so I finally told them I guessed we would do it in the kitchen area. They get started & everything seemed to be going ok until one of my bridesmaids hair turned out absolutely nothing like the picture we had provided for the stylist. My MOH's hair style was an obvious struggle for her & instead of being honest & saying she wasn't comfortable with the style, she continued to attempt it & wasting a lot of our time finishing a style wasn't or what we wanted Now to "makeup." For the price, we expected beautiful coverage with the airbrush makeup. We all have very good skin, so its not as we were asking them to cover large amounts of blemishes. None of us looked like we had foundation on our face at all. One of my $10 drugstore foundations has way better coverage & longevity than this makeup did. With the eyeshadow, I had a dark smokey eye all the way up to my eyebrows in a perfect unblended "C". I asked for a slightly winged liner & got wings that pointed in different directions & when I asked her to fix it I ended up with two wings pointing a different direction on one eye. My MOH's liner was uneven, crooked, & had bumps all over. I asked for her to fill in my brows a little & shape them. I got a powder brushed on that was lighter than my hair & didn't fill in anything. Lastly the lashes. I wanted dramatic lashes which they did have one pair for me, & she tried to just leave them on my eye saying that they had built in adhesive. They were clearly not attached to anything on either end so she used glue & placed them on. At this point I was so upset with the appearance of my face, I told her it was fine. We were running out of time & my hair still had to be finished. I was to have my hair down, parted deeply to the side & in finger waves. What I got was painful non stop brushing of curls that kept bouncing back up. She clearly did not know how to shape finger waves. The curls were too tight and she could not control them. Finally she stopped & I just told her it looked fine. We paid them & I had to run to the bathroom & attempt to blend out my eyeshadow & fill in my brows. The lashes were placed too far towards the outside of my eye & falling down. I had one strand of hair hanging down that was straight. I had to pin it up walking out the door. On the way to the venue, my lashes were falling off & I had to go through my entire ceremony & pictures with my lashes flapping in the wind. My bridesmaids also had to go fix their makeup themselves. I do not believe their services were worth the price considering my makeup looked better when I went and fixed it during my reception.

All my girls had different, unique styles that held through my hot and humid wedding no problem. We were complimented all night and the girls just glowed. One is even hiring out the team for her upcoming wedding she loved her look so much. I promise, you will not be disappointed in booking Pomp & Artistry.

Pomp & Artistry did an amazing job on our hair! I had two hair trials with Davina and Amanda leading up to my big day and even though I still didn't have a style nailed down after my second trial, I was completely confident they would deliver on the big day. My only minor... Read More complaints were that Davina kept telling me my hair was too thick & heavy to do the style that I wanted so she tried talking me into doing something else I didn't like. And come the wedding day I still didn't know who was doing my hair - I had a trial with Davina, and a trial with Amanda. This was a little stressful for me as the bride - not knowing who was styling my hair. Amanda ended up being my stylist and I absolutely loved my hair on my wedding day! It came out perfect and held fairly well throughout the day/night. I had to add a few bobby pins throughout the night but overall it kept really well! The bridal party and the mothers also looked amazing! And if anyone didn't like how something looked, it was voiced and they fixed it until everyone was happy. Amanda and Davina were able to listen to critique and deliver the look everyone wanted. They were also very punctual and whipped everyone's hair out super fast. I would highly recommend them for your future hair needs :)
