Beautiful work! Fun and fabulous team!Reviewed on 10/20/2014 Kathlena S
Stephanie is amazing. Her work speaks for itself, she does a flawless face and gorgeous hair. I would recommend her and her team to anyone needing hair/makeup services and have! We had a brunch wedding and even though they had to start our hair/makeup at 6 am, they arrived bright and excited about getting us ready! Her team is professional and fun. They are kept to a high standard as well. They take initiative to go to continuing education courses and conventions to keep their skills up to date and on the cutting edge. As far as my hair and makeup, Stephanie did two trials for me. The first one was about two hours as she went through about 5 different looks to make sure we found the right one. The second she did becuase I had changed my mind about my hair once I purchased my veil and I could not have been happier with the results. She takes pride in her work and really cares about her brides. She also did my makeup for the rehearsal dinner and when I told her to just do something fun, she nailed it exactly! I was so happy with the different looks she created for me every time. All in all, this is an artist you should book, she is worth every penny and her team is just as good.
Stephanie is the best! Not only is her work gorgeous, but she is so organized and easy to work with! After my trial, I was nervous my groom would think the make up was a little much, but he literally said "Wow! That's what you're going to look like for our wedding? You look so beautiful!" as soon as he saw me. Stephanie is simply the best! I have to tout her organization too... she requests info back on how all of you bridesmaids want their hair & make up done too so there are no questions on wedding day. She's a woman after my own heart! I was so appreciative and this helped wedding day go off without a hitch. They were punctual and we finished exactly on time. Thank you, Stephanie, for making me & bridesmaids & mom/mom-in-law as beautiful as we could be for my wedding!
Stephanie and her team did such an amazing job on myself and my 6 bridesmaids! I was nervous at first because it can be challenging to find someone that can do makeup on my skin complexion and my olive skin tone (I'm Asian) as I had a bad experience before. However, that all went away after the bridal trial! I wanted an updo and did not want my makeup to be heavy. Stephanie did a flawless job! Every single bridesmaid said that this was their best professional hair/makeup experience hands down, and loved their looks! Even though we started at 5 am, Stephanie and her team were full of energy and were enjoyable to work with! I also used Stephanie for touch-ups before my wedding reception since it was hours after the ceremony. I would not hesitant to use her again. Thank you for making us all look beautiful for the big day!
Recommended Stephanie and her girls from when I got my engagement pictures done, and now that she has done my wedding, can't recommend her to enough people!! My girls were amazed at how professional they are with their surveys about skin type, preferred makeup look, type of hair, etc. and all kept saying how beautiful they felt and that it was the best hair and makeup wedding experience they'd had! I felt absolutely beautiful and have nothing but great things to say about them! Highly recommend!!
SN Makeup and Hair did an amazing job for my wedding day! My bridesmaids looked flawless and I was amazed at how my hair and makeup turned out for my wedding! Extremely professional and great with time management!! They were on time and even finished early, leaving us more time to celebrate as a bridal party and take pictures. I highly recommend this team for your big day! You WILL NOT be disappointed.
I would NEVER recommend booking Stephanie and her team. I had a horrible experience getting my hair and makeup done by one of her girls. During my trial, she had to redo my makeup three different times. Every time she did it, it looked blotchy and cakey. She used a color that made me look so pale and did not put any color on my face. It was clear she was inexperienced. When I asked her why the makeup was separating on my face, she explained that it might be helpful if I got my face threaded. The braid she did in my hair was good, but the curls were horrible and fell out before I even left. She put so much product in my hair that it knotted up immediately. Overall, I left very disappointed. Afterward I emailed Stephanie to see if another artist could do my makeup and she explained that her lead artist had showed her the pictures of my trial and that she fully stood behind what her artist did to my face. She then stated that because I was not comfortable with the way her artist did my makeup, instead of trying to fix it, immediately said she was going to cancel my contract and refund my money (but still kept the money I paid for the trial). She did this TWO WEEKS before my wedding, leaving me high and dry with no one to do not only my hair and makeup but my bridesmaids either. When I asked if she would reconsider, she said it wasn't a good fit, and that she had already canceled the contract. This left me feeling upset and stressed! Luckily, I was able to find someone else who actually knows how to do makeup unlike Stephanie and her team. So thank you, Stephanie, for canceling on me, otherwise I would have hated my wedding photos!
Stephanie is the BEST! Stephanie and her team did hair and make up for my wedding in January for me and my bridesmaids. She made everyone comfortable. She did an excellent job and her team was fantastic to work with. She completely understood my personal hair/makeup style. HIGHLY recommend for of your any hair/makeup needs
I initially spent a long time trying to find a makeup artist-- running through different companies and scrolling through reviews, trying to decide whether to go the airbrush or normal makeup route, etc. I finally got tired of searching and reached out to my photographer, Ashley Rains Fondon (AR Photography) to see if she had any recommendations for makeup artists and she recommended SN Makeup & Hair. I could not be happier with the way my makeup turned out! We had Victoria as our makeup artist- she made me feel comfortable and really wanted to know my style so that she could help me look and feel most beautiful. I did bridal portraits so that I could use that as my test run. My bridal photos turned out beautifully, but I didn't feel 100% myself. Through emailing before the wedding, Victoria and I had a game plan to tweak a few things going into wedding day and she did SUCH a great job!! I've never felt more beautiful! She was able to do a natural look, but still accentuate different parts of my face to look great in photos. She is super easy to get a long with and a very talented makeup artist! I have loved working with this company!! Will be recommending to friends and family in the future!
Stephanie and her team are great! We used her team for bridesmaid hair, and bride hair/makeup. They worked with our tight schedule and arrived on time to the hotel at 5:45am, all smiling faces! We had a larger wedding party and required a team of 5 people, and every single stylist was great. They were kind and did their jobs so well. Even with all the different types of hair in my wedding party, everyones hair looked so good. As the bride, I of course wanted my hair to be perfect, and Stephanie did not disappoint. After the trail run, I had a few changes I wanted to make. Stephanie was so accommodating and did everything I asked. I have very thick hair and honestly did not think it would hold curls throughout the entire wedding day, but she made it work! My hair looked great the entire day and even the next day. For makeup, I was nervous because I don't usually wear tons of makeup. I told Stephanie what I wanted, and she did exactly that. She didn't try to make me wear more than I wanted, she just listened to what I said. You can rest assured the team at Stephanie Nelson Makeup & Hair will take care of you and your party!!
I highly recommend Stephanie and her team. Stephanie did hair and make up for a wedding I was in about a year ago and I was impressed with her work then. Since then, she has done my hair/make up for my engagement pictures, bridal photos and the wedding. She does excellent work and her staff is great to work with as well. You will be very pleased if you use Stephanie for your big day!
The ladies at Stephanie Nelson Makeup & Hair are absolutely amazing! They helped make me & all of my ladies feel gorgeous on my big day, and I am forever grateful!
Victoria did such an amazing job on my wedding day! She is BEYOND talented at what she does and is also such a joy to be around. I had originally booked Victoria for just makeup for myself, along with my bridesmaids and mother. About 3 weeks before my wedding, I frantically came to Victoria asking if she could also do my hair. She gave me EXACTLY what I wanted. She made me and the others look amazing on my wedding day. My experience with Stephanie and her team was all around a great one. I would HIGHLY recommend booking them for whatever service you may need! They are the best!
I can't say enough good things about Stephanie and her team. They were by far my favorite vendor that we hired for our wedding! Stephanie was so easy to work with, totally understood what I was looking for and made it happen. They are so talented and everyone in my wedding party looked amazing. This was the best hair and makeup experience i've ever had. I would recommend them to any bride - they are worth every penny!
Stephanie and her team made my bridesmaids and I look and feel our best on our special day! She took my bridal vision and made it come true! I would choose Stephanie and her team, time and time again!!!
I booked Stephanie for my make up / hair for my wedding along with 7 bridesmaids and 2 mothers. I was very pleased with how everything turned out. Stephanie did my hair /make up for my engagement pictures and bridals as well. I received multiple comments on my hair / make up from my engagements and was so happy to get them done for these! I loved my hair / make up for my wedding. After bridals, there was something I noticed with my hair that I wanted to change for the wedding - Stephanie took note of this and executed flawlessly for the wedding. Stephanie and her team did a great job with my bridesmaids hair / make up and our mothers; my mom received TONS of compliments as well with how beautiful she looked. Stephanie was very friendly and professional the entire time. She always had a smile on her face and was willing to work with us. Her team was fun when they came to the venue on our wedding day and I'm so happy that we were able to share part of our special day with them! She stayed a little later to help get the "touch up shots" for our photographer as well. Thank you for making us all look and feel so beautiful!!
Stephanie and her team ROCKED our wedding day! We can't thank them enough for the efficiency and perfection in making us look as beautiful as we did. I really appreciated Stephanie's willingness to be flexible as I changed the "schedule" like a week before my big day. She was SO sweet with me and moved things around so that we could get ready where I wanted to get ready. She even brought an extra person without asking. GREAT service! Honestly will recommend them to any and everyone I can, they are the sweetest and most professional! Book them now!
Victoria and her team were AMAZING! My Make-Up and Hair were Flawless! The team is so professional and talented. They all really go above and beyond to make sure you and your wedding party feel the best on your special! I would HIGHLY recommend them! Such a dream to work with!!
If you do one thing, book Stephanie for your hair and makeup. It was by far the best decision I made throughout the entire planning process. My hair and makeup were STUNNING. Literally everyone was completely obsessed. I don't wear a lot of make up usually, and she made me look natural and absolutely flawless. And my hair was the prettiest I have ever seen it in a beautiful up do. Stephanie is so sweet and personable and made the whole process of getting ready a blast! She even took the cutest boomerang of me and my bridesmaids. I will seriously go back to her to do my hair and makeup for special occasions. BOOK HER FOR YOUR WEDDING!!!!
Stephanie is literally the best!!!! We did my trial and I just fell in love with her, she was so professional, sweet and on top of everything!!
I had Stephanie and two of her team members (Ashlee and Victoria) at my wedding a month ago , from the beginning I knew I wanted Stephanie to do my h/m and could not have been happier with my decision - my hair and makeup were everything! She was a dream from the beginning and even managed to keep not only myself calm but my mom and mother-in-law too!
Stephanie is amazing. Second to none. Do yourself a favor, and pick her for wedding h/m!
The team at Stephanie Nelson Makeup & Hair blew me away for my wedding day! Everyone on the team arrived early, set up, and started right away allowing us to be done early (hello! more time for pictures!!). Stephanie personally did my makeup & hair for weddings in the past then did my engagements, bridal showers, rehearsal dinner, & of course wedding day. You will not regret this decision - they are truly the best!
I first contacted this company on TheKnot.com. I messaged asking for availability and rates. The booking woman was very friendly in her response and said she would answer any questions I may have. I did have a few and responded. At first they were very prompt in returning e-mails and all of a sudden went cold turkey. I messaged SEVERAL times throught The Knot messaging, called the cell phone number that was provided. When I called the cell number the voicemail provided me with an e-mail address that would help get a quicker response. I tried this e-mail address MANY MANY MANY times. I had ZERO responses from this company after the initial conversation. I asked them to let me know EITHER WAY if they booked my date or not. STILL NO RESPONSES. I thought to myself that something may had happened but the companies instagram and facebook were still being updated. I will NEVER suggest this company to all my engaged friends who are getting married. VERY poor customer service. BEWARE.
Ashlee was great! She did my wedding hair and makeup, along with my 4 bridesmaids. She was super sweet even when I changed my mind on the hair post trial. They were very responsive and professional from booking to the day of...These girls are great, and my girls were happy!
Stephanie and her team were absolutely wonderful. I stumbled upon her information here on The Knot and read such wonderful reviews. When I reached out I was very pleased to find that she is priced reasonably based on other services I had quoted online. We had 10 ladies (including myself) getting hair and make up done before the wedding and boy was I worried about getting through that many! I definitely should not have worried!! She reached out directly to each of the ladies who requested services to ensure she knew ahead of time what make up and hair styles each one wanted. Stephanie and 2 other stylists came up to our venue in McKinney, set up in the bridal room, and stayed ahead of schedule all day long. Everyone LOVED their hair and make up (which lasted all night long). Highly Recommend!
