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 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 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... Read More 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 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...

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!

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... Read More 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.
