Mariel was so awesome to work with on my wedding day. She answered all my emails on time. We first met at my hair and makeup trial. She listened to what my vision was and made it come to life. The day of my wedding she arrived right on time. She is organized which I love and had a schedule for me and all my bridesmaids so we were all done on time. The day of the wedding she listened to the changes I wanted to make from the trial and my hair and makeup came out perfect! She also helped me with my veil and hair piece to make sure it turned out perfect. Myself and the the bridesmaids looked amazing in all my pictures and I can't thank Mariel and her team enough. I highly recommend her for your wedding day if you want to feel absolutely beautiful on your wedding day. She is very highly skilled in what she does and I would love to work again with her in the future!
Mariel and her team were incredible! Leading up to the event, Mariel was very easy to communicate with about timing, details, and looks for the wedding. A few days before the big day I was so upset when my skin started to break out, but Mariel was somehow able to make my skin look flawless. Everyone in my bridal party looked beautiful, and Mariel's team was able to tailor the hair and makeup styles based on how each person wanted to look, which made everyone so happy. Thank you Mariel!
Mariel is nothing short of amazing. When I first got engaged, I reached out to an old high school classmate of mine, a hair and makeup professional in the entertainment industry, to see if she had any recommendations for bridal beauty, and boy did she deliver! Mariel was so sweet from our first email exchange, and I knew right away I was going to be in good hands. As coincidence has it, I learned that a friend of my mother's used Mariel for her bridal hair and makeup, and she had nothing but wonderful things to say about her. My thoughts were confirmed when we met for my trial. I showed Mariel a few photos of various hairstyles and makeup looks that caught my eye, and she seamlessly blended everything together to create the perfect look for me. On my wedding day, she replicated the style from my trial, and I honestly couldn't have been happier with the results - it was truly the most beautiful that I have ever felt in my entire life. My bridesmaids were also absolutely thrilled with their own styles, and let me tell you - I had one gorgeous bridal party! Mariel is kind, personable, attentive and extremely talented. She will listen to what you want and will give you exactly what you are looking for, but she also makes suggestions and gives you her professional opinion if and when you ask for it. If you utilize Mariel and her awesome team for your bridal hair and makeup, I promise you will not be disappointed!
Mariel is hands down the best! It is no surprise why her team won the 2018 Couple Choice Award. Mariel and her team handled the hair and make-up for me and my (large!) bridal party. From the initial communication to the hair and makeup styling, they were pros. She even encouraged me to create a Pinterest board to brainstorm in advance, which was super helpful and thoughtful. Leading up to the wedding, Mariel was consistently providing tips such as bringing my own lipstick on the day of so that I can feel fresh throughout the night! I would recommend anyone to Mariel who is hoping to feel fabulous on their special day. Look no further!
For a bride, hair and make-up can be one of the more stressful parts of the wedding. Mariel and her team were incredible to work with and made the glam for me and my bridesmaids easy and stress-free. Mariel is professional, accommodating and very responsive. I worked with Jacqui and Jess for my trial and day-of glam and they were both lovely to work with. Throughout the trial they were patient, attentive and listened to my specific requests. They nailed the look I was going for and the trial went so well that I requested them for my rehearsal dinner glam as well. On the morning of the wedding they were right on time and made me, my bridesmaids and our mothers feel at ease. Everyone looked stunning and couldn’t stop raving about Jacqui and Jess. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and I have Mariel and her team to thank! If you’re lucky enough to work with her you won’t be disappointed.
Mariel and her team are amazing to work with! She listened to and delivered on everything I wanted for both hair and makeup. My bridesmaids, mom and mother-in-law were extremely happy with their hair and makeup and the pictures look gorgeous. My sister even commented she liked her makeup on my wedding day better than on her own wedding day! Mariel was extremely responsive, organized and accommodating throughout the entire process. She makes you feel at ease and was a calming and welcome presence during our getting ready process. She really cares that you’re happy with the service and was even helping with my dress and my mom’s dress at some point during the morning! I would 100% highly recommend Mariel and her team.
Mariel had come highly recommended by a friend of mine who worked with Mariel for her wedding too- and I am so glad I listened to her! Mariel her team did an AMAZING job with hair and makeup for my wedding this past October. I had a very large group of women wanting hair and makeup done at the hotel we were staying at --myself, my mother and mother in law, six bridesmaids, and two flower girls -- a pretty daunting task! But Mariel and her team made everyone look amazing while keeping perfectly on schedule too- we were not a minute behind! All of the women and girls were so happy with how their hair and makeup turned out- the team really listened to what each woman wanted and took into account their personal style. Mariel personally really helped me to have fun and remain calm on the wedding morning, when I was very nervous! In addition to being super talented, she is a truly sweet person who cares about making sure her brides have a great day. That really meant a lot to me. And her work is amazing- I had done a trial with Mariel several months before the wedding and knew right away that I wanted to work with her. She listened to what style I wanted- hair up in a messy bun type style, relatively natural looking makeup in bronzy colors- and executed it perfectly. And she replicated that perfectly on the wedding day too- I was so happy with how everything turned out; I truly looked and felt like myself with a bit more glam for such a special day I highly recommend Mariel and her team – you cannot go wrong working with her!
Mariel and her team were the perfect bunch to help accentuate the beauty of my bridal party. Before the big day, Mariel made it a point to answer all (there were a lot) of my questions. The at home trial went well, and I switched up my hair choice shortly before my wedding day but Mariel did not miss a beat. She even answered my calls to ask silly questions about random beauty items like extensions. She's extremely organized which I appreciate so much, and her entire team is great. She easily handled a group of 13 (bride, maids, MIL & flower girl)! I am so happy Mariel and her team were there for me!
I first had my hair and makeup done by Mariel a few years ago at a friend's wedding. I felt so confident (and got SO many compliments) that I knew right away I wanted to use her for my wedding. She was very easy to communicate with and responded very promptly to e-mails. At the trial, she took all of my requests into consideration while also offering her own advice on what would work best for me. Prior to the wedding, all of the information regarding payment and our day-of schedule was laid out so there was no confusion on my actual wedding day. With so many aspects of wedding planning that were stressful, this was one area that was totally worry free. On my wedding day, Mariel and her assistant showed up right on time and hit the ground running. They listened to everyone's requests and made adjustments where they were necessary. All of my bridesmaids and my mother were so happy with their looks! I asked for a completely different style for my eye makeup, which Mariel provided - but then had no qualms about completely redoing after I hated it (thank you!). Mariel and her assistant stuck around for touch-ups until the last minute when pictures were starting, which everyone appreciated. All of our hairstyles and makeup remained picture-perfect well through the day and night. Some of my favorite pictures of my hair were from the after party! I am extremely happy with my decision to use Mariel and her team for hair and makeup services. She is so easy to talk to and laid back while also remaining professional. She listens to what you want and really delivers. I have never felt more beautiful, or received more compliments, than when she's done my hair and make-up. You won't be disappointed!
Mariel was a perfect find! She is professional, knowledgeable, and passionate about her job. I was worried about getting my hair done for my wedding day because I had never had an up-do I actually liked. I was also worried about the make-up being "cake." So I went to her house for a trial with my mom and sister - she listened to what I wanted & I really liked how knowledgeable she was about the products. On the other hand, I thought the foundation was too heavy and I didn't love my hairstyle, so I decided to go for a second trial. After the second trial I left feeling confident choosing her to be my make-up and hairstylist for my wedding for 2 reasons -- I was confident she would be able to change a hair style on the spot if she needed to & her second make-up application was perfect (not too much!) Her services included: hair trial, make-up trial, on-site services, bridal party hair & make-up, bridal hair with extensions & bridal make-up with false eyelashes. I am really glad I chose Mariel & her team for my wedding day -- I absolutely loved my hair & makeup and it lasted all night!!
Mariel and her team are absolutely AMAZING!! She did my bridesmaids make up for my wedding and everyone looked stunning and were so happy with their makeup. Mariel and her team showed up on time and got the job done on time, all while helping my party have fun and taken care of. She is so amazing to work with - professional, responsive, organized, detail-oriented, and so talented! I highly recommend her and her team - you will not regret it!
I hired Mariel to do hair for myself and my bridal party. Working with Mariel was so easy. She and her assistant were so chill as we were getting ready, which was a welcome feeling amongst all the chaos! All the bridesmaids chose different hairstyles, and all of them looked amazing. Our wedding day was 100 degrees and a little humid, and everyone's hair stayed in place all day, which was great!
Mariel and her team are absolutely amazing to work with! Mariel is organized, professional and extremely talented! She kept our morning getting ready on schedule and stayed with my bridal party through pictures to do any touch-ups for the group! She was so attentive and such a calming influence throughout the whole day! My bridal party looked beautiful! Couldn't have asked for a better make-up and hair team!
Mariel and two of her team did makeup and hair for me and 10 others on my wedding day, we all looked fabulous! mariel is so talented and she did everything just how I imagined it. She is great at styling hair and even styled fresh flowers into my low messy bun. She is always on time and she had all of us looking flawless and ready on time as well! Thank you Mariel!!!
Mariel was everything I hoped for in a makeup artist/hairstylist - prompt, easygoing, and talented! She is extremely responsive and organized. It was such a relief to not have to stress out about getting glammed up on the day of; I knew I could count on her to be there on time. She even kindly helped my mom quickly fix her hair. Thank you Mariel for making my wedding morning such a relaxed process - I loved the results and got lots of compliments!
Mariel is amazing! I have no problem admitting that I am EXTREMELY particular/picky/indecisive and Mariel was a literal goddess on my wedding day. She was patient, honest, and dealt with my crazy so gracefully. In addition to being awesome at hair and makeup, she's also just super amazing to chat and hang out with. I highly recommend her services!!
Mariel was fantastic! I was nervous and picky when selecting a makeup artist to work with for my wedding, especially since my skin is sensitive. Mariel created exactly the hairstyle and natural makeup look I wanted! It looked beautiful in person on the big day this April, and looks great in the photos which last forever. She picked exactly the right colors for my complexion! Working with Mariel was a pleasure. It was extremely easy to get in touch with her, and she's very timely. It's amazing to work with someone as talented and reliable as Mariel. A big "thank you!" to Mariel for helping me look and feel my best on such an important occasion!
Mariel and her stylist Corinne are both so talented and really sweet and accommodating. I had two trials with Mariel where she got everything right from my descriptions, then both Mariel and Corinne took on the task of doing hair and makeup for myself and nine other members of my bridal party. We had a great time with them and they stayed perfectly on schedule throughout the whole day while making each girl look great. Both my mother and mother-in-law were very nervous about having their hair and makeup done since neither one tends to dress up often - but Mariel and Corinne made them feel at ease and they were both very pleased with their looks. I highly recommend Mariel and will definitely book her again for any future events.
I hired Mariel & her team to do my bridesmaids hair & makeup, as well as my mom's makeup. They arrived on time, were quick, and completed everyone's hair and makeup before the designated time. All of the girls looked beautiful, and their hair and makeup stayed in place throughout the remainder of the day, which was 12+ hours! Just be careful if you're doing strip lashes- my mom & cousin had lots of trouble getting them off! Seems that they were glued to their lashes instead of to their lash line/ eyelid. I would recommend this beauty team for large groups of girls looking for a good price with quality service.
Marielle is a gifted hair and makeup artist (seriously an artist using a 3-D canvas) but where she really stands out is her ability to connect with people and make everyone feel comfortable and relaxed, which is INCREDIBLY important because she will be with you immediately before the event! We had a last minute snag with our venue and everyone was kind of tense when Marielle and her assistant came in--they immediately helped us feel calmer and, of courses, prettier! I really appreciated how they worked with everyone to figure out what kind of hair and makeup they wanted, especially me---I don't usually wear makeup or do my hair elaborately so I had no idea what I wanted, but Marielle helped guide me expertly and my makeup and hair were *perfect*. I danced so much that I was definitely sweating, but my makeup never even smudged, and my hair stayed in perfectly. also just one thing I have to note that demonstrates how far Marielle will go to ensure you have the perfect look: i had a piece of food stuck in my teeth that I couldn't get out, and she went in there with a disposable makeup brush and got it out for me--she will literally do anything for you. Thank you!!!!!
Having Mariel beautify me on my wedding day was the best decision I could have made! She is extremely talented and used her high quality products to make me feel beautiful and still was able to give me a natural look with make up and the soft, elegant hair style that I wanted. Besides her talent, her extremely organized and calm manner was what gave me the most confidence in her work. From our first conversation about how to make the morning work she was on top of knowing exactly what she would be doing and how she would do it down to the minute. I am usually an organized person but felt pretty scatter-brained as my wedding day got closer. Mariel's easy going personality and encouragement that everything would work out fine (and it did!) really kept me at ease on a day that could easily be so hectic. Mariel was also very accommodating when I requested a trial. I am not in her area and she was sure to meet me in a convenient central location to provide me with the trial I wanted. She was early and ready with all her equipment as soon as I entered the room! I felt like my best self on my wedding day and have Mariel to thank for it!
Mariel Guay is fantastic to work with! She did hair and makeup for me and 4 others for my wedding. She is a very talented hair and makeup artist - our group requested several different styles, and she made each person look fantastic! Mariel was extremely organized through the entire process. She provided a schedule for the wedding day, arrived to our hotel right on time, and finished right on schedule. Throughout the day, she kept the energy high despite the early-morning start. She even helped me into my wedding dress and made sure my hair and makeup were intact. Mariel was an absolute pleasure and I'd highly recommend her!
Mariel was a joy to work with! She and Jess did hair and make-up for my 4 bridesmaids, two moms, and myself and everyone looked amazing! She was laid back and fun to be around but very professional and kept us on schedule. On the day of my wedding I wanted a slightly different hair style from the one that she had done at my trail and she was happy to keep tweaking it until I was happy. She made me feel gorgeous on my big day and was great to work with every step of the way before that!
Mariel was phenomenal. She was so easy to work with, flexible, and most importantly helped me look and feel my best on my wedding day! My girls and I were all thrilled with our wedding day looks. Highly recommend her!!
