I had a lot of trouble finding a hair and makeup vendor for my wedding, and went along with my venue's preferred vendor as they had been great with everything else so far. I'm so glad it led me to The Makeup Artists - they were AMAZING! I did my hair trial with Jessie and...

They were professional and efficient - I was worried we weren't going to get everything done in time, and we ended up finishing early! They were so patient and made sure everyone was satisfied before moving on to the next. I worked with Andrea on scheduling and pre-planning, and she was so awesome to work with! Always very responsive and answered all my questions. I'm sure I'll see them again as all my bridesmaids loved them :)

Andrea at The Makeup Artists was by far my favorite "vendor" that we had involved in the wedding.

I highly recommend Andrea for your wedding!!

Andrea (makeup) and Meg (hair) were AMAZING. First off, I could hang out with them both all day - they know how to put brides, moms, bridesmaids, etc. at ease and having fun! I'm very particular about hair/makeup --- but after a basic explanation and a few sample pictures at my... Read More trial, they both nailed it on the first try. On the day of the wedding, I asked for a few tweaks - they were totally flexible and accommodating. At the VERY last minute, I asked Meg to trim my hair extensions...after they were in my hair...and already curled. Like the pro she is, she took care of it instantly. Andrea is a total expert in her field as well and will make you feel like a supermodel. They both gave my bridal party awesome beauty tips, too!

Andrea is a makeup genius. She is nice and personable and makes you feel so comfortable. She really listens and is willing to accommodate you and your personal style/ comfort level. She took her time to get to know me and my mother and best friend during our trial makeup... Read More run and was genuine in wanting us to all feel beautiful and comfortable. She's professional and helpful and really pays attention to your skin type and offers her professional advice to help you look your best, including skin care tips (which I now follow and see great results). She recommended specific makeup products to us depending on our eye shapes, skin type, etc. I was nervous about a break-out I had the week before my wedding and Andrea was a great resource on how to handle it and sure enough, all was cleared up in the end. On the big day she made everyone feel their prettiest and my mother and mother-in-law both were smiling ear to ear in awe of how they looked. I can honestly say, as the bride, I've never felt more beautiful in my life. Megan is a hair wizard, a true artist. She is able to look at a photo for a brief second and re-create it even better. She is professional, punctual and responsive. It's amazing what she can do in just 30 minutes. All of my bridesmaids said they've never had anyone do their hair so well before. She can tackle ANY hair type and even extensions. I honestly have never been more happy with my hair in my life. I felt like a celebrity.

Could not have been happier!

My bridesmaids, my mother, my mother-in-law, and I were all treated to pre-wedding beautification by Jenn (hair) and Marlo (makeup.) I could not have been happier with the results. My hair and makeup were exactly what I wanted and they both lasted long into the night. Both Jenn... Read More and Marlo knew exactly what to do to make our styles stick so that we would look our best from pictures before the ceremony to the reception. My bridesmaids all picked their own hairstyles so they were all different but Jenn made them all coordinate by added a small braid somewhere in the style. I loved that the girls could be themselves but still somehow uniform. Marlo did an excellent job with the makeup, my girls and I have never looked so good. My MIL has taken to calling her "Miracle Marlo" when we talk about the day. It was so nice that they came to our hotel suite. There was no worrying about getting to and from a salon. We were able to relax and goof around and each lunch rather than spending all 5 hours sitting in a salon waiting for each other to finish. I would 100% recommend Jenn and Marlo to any bride, my wedding day would not have been the same without them!

Choosing Andrea to do my hair and makeup for my wedding, along with my mother's and sister's, was by far the best decision I ever made. Words cannot describe how fantastic an artist and person Andrea is. First, lets talk about my make-up and hair. I knew when Andrea came to my...

Worked with Andrea, Meghan and Brenna on my wedding day on June 9, 2012. It was a wonderful experience from the beginning to end.

On the day of the wedding Meghan and Brenna did hair and Andrea did makeup. They all did a fantastic job and all the girls looked beautiful (we had 7 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls, 1 mother of bride, 2 sister in laws have services done). Meghan did my hair and was extremely quick on her feet when I decided to slightly alter my hair style from the initial trial we did. It came out fantastic! Every single girl that got their hair/make-up done was very satisfied and felt gorgeous. I think it also helped that all three stylists, Andrea, Meghan and Brenna were professional but also really fun to talk to and made you feel at ease on your wedding day. I would absolutely recommend the Make-up artists to future brides! They made the wedding day even more special.
