Kristi did the most beautiful job with my makeup! She was so laid back and professional, and she knew exactly the vibe I was going for without lot a of direction (kind of a glowy natural glam).

We chose Studio B and worked with Kristi (owner) and Mallori. These two did an incredible job and did it much quicker than anticipated and was not rushed at all. We did a trial first. For the makeup i didnt have any particular requests and told her just a general “I dont wear... Read More much makeup. I dont want to look cakey and want the makeup to look soft and natural.” She did just that in both the trial and the big wedding day. It was natural and I felt beautiful. I actually came out better the day of! Mallori did my hair for the trial and for the final day. From the trial which I though was perfect she seemed to make it even better the day of! I gave her a picture of my idea and she did it amazingly and in such a way that I was able to dance all night without my hair falling out. The hair looked soft and not slicked back. Both stylists did mine as well as my 5 bridesmaids and the two mothers makeup and hair. All of them looked beautiful and were very happy with their results. I would recommend Studio B with Kristi and Mallori to anyone who asked.

Found Studio B here on the Knot for my destination wedding in Rhode Island and I couldn't be happier!

I'm pretty sure Mallori and Caroline are magicians in their spare time! Not only do they create magic, but they are such a calming influence in the midst of all the chaos. Being a wedding and event planner myself, I have seen Studio B's finished product numerous times and they... Read More are always my favorite. Since I was traveling up to Maine for my wedding, I was afraid that it would be too costly to bring them up with me. Lucky for me, their pricing was very competitive! There was a little lag in response a couple of times... but I'm also super type A and tend to ask for things waaaaaaaaaaay before they are necessary. Kristi sent over the information in plenty of time and was very patient with me. She put together the perfect schedule to get us ready for the day! I am so happy we made the decision to bring Mal & Caroline with us! They were amazing. Every one of my ladies looked perfect and my 4 year old niece told me I looked like Princess Elsa... probably the best compliment ever!
