Beautiful bridal hair and make-up!

Reviewed on 1/19/2016 Shelby C

Lauren and her team did my hair and make-up for my engagement photos and wedding (she also cuts my hair regularly - that's great too!). I showed a picture of what I sort of wanted and she was creative and I loved it! They all did an incredible job and were very professional and... Read More fun. I asked them to do hair and make-up for 10 bridesmaids, myself, two flower girls, and mother of the groom. Everyone looked beautiful. On the wedding day, the team came to us, was on time, and even finished early! They were great about working with some really picky bridesmaids and Lauren was patient working with me to set up the logistics while I worked in Africa before the wedding (she's a good mix of patient and assertive when it comes to working with scatter-brained brides. Also very responsive to last minute changes - she's super organized). All the girls' make-up looked natural, but still perfect for an evening winery wedding. I was so so impressed with some of the hair styles! Girls with thin straight hair somehow looked like the had amazing curls in their up-dos! I highly recommend Lauren and this fun team. Very fairly priced as well!

Working with Lauren was so amazing. She always responded promptly to all my emails, which was ALOT! She never seemed annoyed by my silly questions. I was planning most of my wedding in Nashville, TN, she made the experience as stress free as possible. My mom and I did our... Read More trial hair and makeup with Arden and Lauren and ended up making minor changes, I am so glad we did the trial. Day of, Lauren brought her team to my hotel suite and they did their magic! They were on time and got all 10 of us hair and makeup beautifully done! I now see Lauren for my normal hair cuts and dyes! I would HIGHLY recommend this salon for your special day!

St. James Salon provided the best experience I ever could have imagined for my bridal hair and makeup service! Lauren and Arden were a dream to work with for so many reasons, and I highly recommend them as a phenomenal bridal styling team. My wedding was in two parts: we... Read More eloped to Maui with just a tiny intimate group, then had a large celebration back at home in the wine country after we returned. Given that I've had the pleasure of being Lauren's client for a while now, St. James Salon was an easy pick as my bridal hair & makeup vendor for my reception here at home. However, when she heard we were having the ceremony in Maui beforehand, she immediately offered to bring her team to Maui and provide services for me and the other ladies of my family. I can't begin to express how comforting it was to know that my trusted hairstylist would be there on my special day to make me look and feel truly beautiful. Taking the task of having to do my own bridal hair and makeup out of the equation made things a lot less stressful and much more enjoyable. Arden, whom I had not had the pleasure of meeting before my wedding day, was so incredibly warm, very kind, talented, and is an integral part of the St. James team. Beyond their impeccable work, they were extremely easy to work with and highly flexible, even in travel planning. A destination wedding provides a few curve balls here and there, and Lauren and Arden kept us all on time and even offered to help when needed (champagne refills, ladies?). The entire experience (both times) was such a pleasant, easy, and memorable one. Lauren is a true master of her craft and the entire St. James team is hyper focused on making their clients not only look amazing, but feel truly special. I could not recommend them enough!

Lauren is very responsive with emails, organized and lovely. My mom and mother in law had their make up done with the bridal party and they turned out gorgeous. Everyone looked beautiful and the team has a wonderful vibe. If you happen to have an inevitable glitch in the morning, they are there to calm you down. Just wonderful people all around that do amazing work.

Working with St. James Salon was amazing from the get go! All of the girls are so nice and beyond talented. My wedding party conisisted of a variety of preferences and the girls executed their expertise to satisfy the preference of each girl flawlessly! Perhaps what was most... Read More appealing from the start was how professional the team is! From the moment we first chatted, to the big day and conversations thereafter, the St. James team is beyond quality. The team is prompt, organized, educated and overall a classy bunch! I would highly recommend their team for your big day! Ps! I tried out lash extensions for my big day, Arden, a makeup artist & lash technician at St. James, hooked it up! I've had lashes since two weeks before our wedding (which was just under two months ago) and haven't been able to let them go! She's done an amazing job from the initial application to every fill thereafter!

What amazing service! I don't usually wear a lot of makeup or do much with my hair so I was a bit nervous with my wedding makeup, but I definitely didn't need to be. Lauren nailed a nice warm look that definitely went with a beautiful classic down style for my hair. All of my...

Raised in the beauty industry, with both parents as cosmetologists, I have followed in their footsteps and taken an extra leap forward into the very special niche that is bridal styling. I am in the salon as a hair stylist and makeup artist full-time with bridal artistry as a beautiful addition to the work that I do. I have a love for the industry, as well as a great set of business and organizational skills that allow me to coordinate with each and every one of our brides to ensure their special day is planned and executed, with as little unnecessary stress on the bride as possible.
