Studio B did an excellent job on hair and makeup for me, my seven bridesmaids, and both mothers for my winter wedding. They arrived early in the morning to our hotel and worked diligently for five hours to finish everyone's beauty before pictures. Everyone looked so beautiful... Read More and fit the requested aesthetic perfectly. No one looked too stiff or overly made up--the girls looked like themselves, but flawless! All of our looks lasted through the evening--and our hair was still beautiful at brunch the next morning. The only downside is the salon is very slow about responding to email and phone calls, which added some stress before the wedding. They delivered in the end though and I was very happy.

I had Studio B do my engagement photos makeup, as well as my hair and makeup for a wedding I was just in. The stylists do an excellent job of capturing EXACTLY what you want, and always looking absolutely stunning. My makeup was able to show in pictures, but was still natural...

Kristi & Mal of Studio B absolutely killed it. I gave Mal very little direction for my hair and yet she was able to run with what I told her and give me exactly what I envisioned. My makeup was perfection, as well. I work in fitness and wear very little in my daily life,...

I had a small group (myself, my mother, and MOH) and we had Mal and Kelsey for our hair and makeup in the salon. Mal was so patient with me. She gave me the exact hairstyle I was looking for. During my hair trial, Mal made suggestions that really helped things to go smoothly the... Read More day of (e.g., I wanted a bold lip. Mal advised that go to Sephora buy it so I was totally comfortable with my choice). My makeup was excellent and natural.

My mom was wary of having makeup done, since she doesn't often wear it, but she was obsessed with her eyelashes and looked awesome! Thanks so much!

Kristi and Mallori from Studio B did an absolutely incredible job for my wedding! Mallori has been cutting my hair for years so I knew I was in good hands from the start. I gave her a vague description of what I wanted and she just rolled with it. It looked effortless and chic... Read More and my makeup looked like me only better, which is exactly what I wanted.

Kristi and Mallory KILLED IT for my September wedding this year. They were such great people and had great energy! They had my hair and makeup to tackle, as well as my bridesmaids and both MOB and MOG. They totally killed it. I could NOT have been happier with the way EVERYTHING... Read More went.

Thanks for the perfect day ladies!

I'd been a client of Mallori's for years - so I had no doubt that Studio B was the perfect choice for hair and makeup for my sister's wedding. Mallori and Kristi are the dream team!!

My makeup and hair was flawless - as was the rest of the bridal party - and we were completely on schedule all day!

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 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.
