So accommodating!Reviewed on 11/07/2012 Kristen B
My wedding was on Saturday afternoon, and I had 9 girls plus myself and two Moms that needed their hair and makeup done before 11:30 am. I couldn't believe how helpful everyone at the salon was! They brought in stylists from other locations and made sure everyone was made up by 11:30 on the dot! Not to mention, everyone looked amazing. I could not have asked for a better start to an important day. Thank you to Andy (hair), Jade(makeup) and everyone at The Max Salon in Short North for all of your help making my day fabulous! :)
Everything was smooth (Dublin)Reviewed on 11/07/2012 sally h
My wedding was on a Sunday morning. I needed someone to do my hair and makeup so they got some girls to come in an hour early for me (they can't do 2 hours earlier though). Elianna did my hair. She added in a broach to my hair even though it wasn't meant to be a hair piece. My hair is very thick and heavy but it stayed up all day, even after I forgot and shook my head during a dance. Makeup went just as well. I got the airbrush and even though my face wasn't perfect that day the makeup covered it up. They know what they are doing.
We had an awesome experience with Charles Penzones! My bridal party loved it and we had to much fun being pampered. They were so accommodating and everyone looked beautiful!
My bridal party went to the Gahanna location on the morning of my wedding. They were able to create the style that everyone wanted. Jillian was my designer. She was wonderful. During my trial, we tried several styles and discovered that in order to create the look I wanted I would need extensions. She helped me figure out exactly what I needed to get and it turned out perfect.
I visited the Short North location and it was a great experience! I had 10 people in my party and they were very accommodating and timely in getting everyone's hair done. I also called last minute to schedule a nail appointment that same morning and they were able to do that as well while the other girls were getting their hair done. Maggie was my stylist and she did an excellent job. She took pictures and notes during my trial so the day of the wedding was a breeze and my hair turned out perfectly!
The staff at Charles Penzone did an amazing job with hair and makeup for my bridal party. All of our stylists were attentive to our needs and everyone looked absolutely stunning! The bridal department was very easy to work with and made all of my scheduling a breeze! Services were very affordable. I can not recommend Charles Penzone enough; specifically Kendra for hair and Harley for makeup- they made me feel and look so beautiful. Thank you Kendra, Harley, and everyone in the bridal department at Charles Penzone!
I love these ladies! They all did such a wonderful job!! ( I had hair, nails and makeup done.) I ended up running late and they were so nice to switch my appointment times to make sure I could still fit in everything I wanted! Also, I got to meet Mr. Penzone!! What a cool experience! He was super nice!! As a sweet lay touch, CP gives a special gift to brides that I didn’t know about- a six pence for your shoe!! It came in a special little bag. I had considered the whole, “something old/blue/borrowed/new,” but didn’t pay attention to the fact that there is a last line. It was awesome to get that special gift from them!! What a great memory!! My bridesmaids, mother and mother in law all looked beautiful as well. I highly recommend this place to everyone!
Charles Penzone Salons did hairstyles for myself, my mom, and my seven bridesmaids for my wedding in September. Everyone's hair was beautiful, but we had two logistical issues. Blake did a wonderful job with my hairstyle. I have fine hair that doesn't have natural volume, and I had never before had an updo that I loved. I took a chance and asked Blank to style my hair in a voluminous, romantic updo (with a trial before the wedding day). She exceeded my expectations and listened to my vision with attention to detail. I could tell that Blake is constantly learning new techniques and mastering her craft. My hair stayed in place perfectly, even with a headpiece that tied using a ribbon. Our major logistical issue was that a bridesmaid's hair appointment got canceled. I did have a large bridal party - and about a week before the wedding, I emailed the coordinator to cancel an appointment for the groom's mom (who unfortunately lost her hair the prior week in chemo treatments). Somehow, the coordinator cancelled a bridesmaid's appointment at the same time. I never got an amended schedule from the coordinator (just written confirmation that the mom's appointment was nixed), so I'm not sure whether I could have found the mistake beforehand. I went into instant panic mode when we realized this at the salon, but Blake came to the rescue (while she was doing my hair) and found another stylist. My advice to future brides would be to confirm your scheduled appointments over the phone or in person right before your wedding... I was disappointed that the coordinator didn't double check everything, since I did my part to triple check all communications. Our other issue was that one bridesmaid's hair took far longer than the 45 minute time slot allotted. She has long hair and asked for a certain style, but we both wish the stylist had told her it would take an hour and a half before committing. The bridesmaid would have modified or chosen another style if she'd known this. The instructions we got from Charles Penzone clearly state that hairstyles must be done in 45 minutes, so I hadn't imagined anyone could take way more time. The bridesmaid was late to pictures and that caused the photographer and me some stress. I would go back to Charles Penzone for my bridal party again, but I would put my maid of honor in charge of micromanaging the scheduling (even more so than I did myself) or had some of the bridesmaids do their own hair to simplify the process.
I had a great experience at the Salon in Dublin. As an out of town bride, the salon was able to accommodate me to have my trial 2 days before the wedding. Both Carrie (makeup) and Ivy (hair) did an amazing job. They were able to capture the look and feel for what I wanted to look like for the wedding. I would highly recommend!
We booked the bridal suite for our hair and makeup and the girls had such a great time! Everyone’s hair and makeup looked beautiful! Several girls in the bridal party commented that it was the best hair and makeup they have ever had!
Overall disappointed they made my appointment at 10 but it was supposed to be 9:30 Makeup made me look less ran Hair just put up its a good thing i had shampooed it and up do was tighter than desired But checkout process a nightmare as my son and his bride purchased gift card fir myself and mon but the cashier coundnt figure out how to redeem she said amounts not gound when they werebought day before Very embarrassing and almost made us late for limo She called soneone but no kne voukd figure out how to process cards We finally just left and made her figure it out We are not from Columbus but would nit recommend salon Its a shame because its so convenient to hotel and Short North
Charles Penzone was so helpful and professional the day of my wedding! Everyone we saw from nails, hair to make up was top notch! My bridal party and I looked absolutely beautiful!!
Shane at the Dublin Grand Salon did an amazing job on my wedding hair. I was a non-traditional bride and she understood my vision and executed it to perfection! You get the royal treatment at Charles Penzone and the Sixpence for my shoe was such a clever touch. Thank you for a great experience!
The staff was very friendly & attentive. They did a great job on our hair & makeup in the bridal suite. Would definitely recommend.
Not a bad experience overall. My trials went really well and I was obsessed with how they turned out. However, on the day of my wedding my makeup artist deviated from the trial and my airbrush makeup was waaaaaay to dark. It was time for me to leave to be at the church and she had to take it all off and redo it. She was rushing and I was super late so that was a big mess. I wish the day of would have gone as smoothly as the trial. For this reason I feel like I wasted my money on even doing the trial because the day of still wasn’t right. When she took off the makeup to redo it, she didn’t redo everything so there were a lot of blemishes I had to fix. This was the only fiasco on my wedding day but it was a pretty big one. I was really disappointed considering the amount of money I spent on trials and day of services.
We all had a great experience at Charles Penzone. We had a private space and the lunch that I purchased for all of my bridesmaids was wonderful. Our hair and makeup was perfect. Emerson did my hair, and it was wonderful!
We booked in March for my big day. We were never informed that my bridal party would be separated during the whole time. Some girls were on the first floor getting their hair done while some were on the 2nd floor getting makeup done. While getting my makeup done I was getting a sales pitch. I felt like I was at a mall, not a hair salon. I'm sure they get commissions, but I was there for my big day, not to buy makeup. I will admit they made me look and feel beautiful so I may go back, but don't try to get sales while you're doing a bridal parties makeup. It was rude. Also, being the bride my hair needed to look amazing and last ALL day. Yet I was placed with a stylist who hasn't worked there a year compared to someone with more seniority. My hair looked good, but it wasn't great. The veil was put in incorrectly and was pulling on my do which my bridesmaids had to fix later and my curls came out before we even left for the ceremony which my girls tried to fix. Lastly, there needs to be a note about the charges for hair because when we booked our appointment we were scheduled with stylists, but when we went to pay we were charged more. One girl who only had curls done was charged more than a girl who had an up-do done. The salon fixed everything, but we should have been forewarned that the price could be higher. I told my girls $60 each and then they're getting charged $75. That makes me look bad and the salon too. Overall everyone's makeup looked amazing! Kudos there. Hair looked great on some, but mine & another's needed fixed. I do appreciate making us feel valued and welcomed. Also thank you for fixing the pricing on the hair and it was nice meeting the owner, plus receiving compliments. I gave 4 stars because it wasn't an awful experience, but it wasn't stellar either.
I scheduled all of our appointments well in advance through a bridal coordinator. On the day of the wedding my Matron of honor attempted to check in for her appointments at the Grand Salon Gahanna and was told they had no record of her. After providing the copy of the schedule provided by the bridal coordinator, she was told that "someone must have cancelled the appointment and that only an administrator could cancel it out of the system" My mother in law had a similar situation at the Dublin Grand Salon the same day. I'm not sure if there was a major system issue, but in the end both of them were taken care of. The salon did discount my matron of honor's services and I appreciated the gesture. One other small thing that irked me: My make up artist was more than 15 minutes late for my appointment and no one gave me a heads up she was running behind. I had to seek someone out to find out where she was. The whole experience just seemed so impersonal. If I was doing it over again, I would select a different salon.
So perfect!! My bridal party and I used the Dublin location and it was absolutely amazing! All of the girls felt so great with their hair and their make-up and looked fantastic all night long. I would highly recommend Hayden for bridal hair and Cameron for the make-up! I did the trial with both of them and not only are they super friendly, they are amazing at their jobs! Hayden did my up-do in 45 minutes and not only was it super comfortable and secure, it was even better than it was in the trial! It also stayed in tact for a full 9 hours and only started to slip a tiny bit after a very vigorous bout on the dance floor. Cameron did my makeup flawlessly! Everything stayed looking perfectly fresh all through out the day and until the end of the reception. Surviving hours of photos in the sun and of dancing. It was also great that they whole bridal party was able to get their hair/makeup done in the same time frames so it only took 2 hours to get all eight of us ready. They also offer complimentary coffee/tea and is set in a very relaxing atmosphere!
The salon did a great job of getting my bridal party and I through the process quickly and efficiently. Chloe did my make-up and did a fantastic job! It looked great all night and unbelievable in the pictures! The bridal party's hair was great and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would highly recommend their services at the Gahanna location.
Both my nails and my daughter's nails broke within days of getting done. I was really disappointed to spend all that money on our nails for my wedding day and we could only enjoy them for that one day, they didn't last. They offered to redo them but I dont live in the area and there are no Charles Penzones near me. Ugg!! I feel I will ever use them again for this service. I would like to say that the hair services we received was excellent. We loved our hair do's and we received so many compliments on our hair.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so friendly and made sure everyone in my bridal party looked and felt amazing!
Charles Penzone is my regular hair salon, so it was an obvious choice for my wedding-day beauty needs. SO glad I chose it! My wedding was on a Sunday and they don't normally open until 11, but they opened the Polaris salon early to ensure I had plenty of time to get my services done. Jodi (my regular hairstylist) is incredible--she came in just to do my hair that day since she doesn't normally work on Sundays. Alia was also wonderful as a makeup artist--I highly recommend the airbrush makeup since it stayed put perfectly all the way through the ceremony, reception, and afterparty! The trial services were also a great idea because we were able to work out some kinks and make decisions so the day-of was stress free. My mother, mother-in-law and aunt also had wonderful experiences that day and looked beautiful. I would highly recommend Charles Penzone to anybody--their bridal team makes all the planning so easy, they can do anything you need (I just had hair and makeup but they offer everything from lash extensions to spray tans), and their services are so fantastic!
Tabitha did a great job with my airbrush makeup. She was very nice and made me look exceptionally natural. I highly recommend her for airbrush services!
