Five stars for Taffeta! We were lucky enough to meet Alexandra (our hair stylist) at Found, The Wedding Market, hosted at Congress Hall, our venue. Out of all of the hair & make up vendors we met that day, we loved Taffeta's work and vibe the ...
most. I was big on the natural look (I wanted the opposite of a sprayed, stuck to your head look or a super tight curl look) and I found that in the photo examples that Alexandra had at her table. In addition, all of the brides seemed like a more enhanced version of themselves, as opposed to not looking like themselves at all! We went for one trial and that was enough to sell me! Alex (hair stylist) and Lauren (make up artist) were extremely fun, talkative and made me and my bridesmaids and mothers feel comfortable. I had to provide my own hair extensions and Alex did a great job making them look like my own hair! She knew exactly what to do with my blusher veil, even though my request was slightly unusual, "off to the side and like a big pouf, a la Sex and the City!". Close to my wedding day, I asked our florist to create a clip made with the same flowers of my bouquet. I wasn't sure if it was going to work, but I wanted to give it a try. Alex took the time to place it at the front seam of my veil's clip, and it truly looked beautiful.
Lauren used my Pinterest reference photo for make up and tailored it to my skin tone and hair color. She used rose gold for my eyeshadow (make up artists always want to use purple on my big brown eyes). She knew I didn't want 'clown face' but also convinced me that I needed enough make up to show up in photos! She did a beautiful job, took her time and made sure I was in love with my look - both at the trial and on my wedding day!
Both Alex and Lauren were amazing with my bridesmaids and my mom and mother-in-law. They even took the time to do hair and make up for some of my last minute add-on's - my Godmother's hair, my cousin's make up. They really tried to accommodate my group in the sweetest, friendliest way.
I did have to travel quite a bit to get to their hair and make up studio for the trial (I live in Brooklyn, our wedding was in New Jersey and their studio was also in New Jersey) - but the travel was worth it! You may find it takes them some time to respond to emails, but I think I'm just used fast-paced NY!
Overall, they are a lovely duo and we had a pleasure sharing our special day with Alex and Lauren. Would use them again!
