Started out out finr with getting pricing info, booking dates and services and sending them a pdf what I wanted for hair and makeup that included examples. As for actual service and relaying the images with descriptions of my hair and makeup in...
spo, that was never sent to the stylist. She did not do at all the “clean girl” makeup shown in examples (heavy makeup and matte) and with formal updos rather than the more casual unfussy examples I had. I also found out later that she mentioned that she didn’t know I wanted K-pop makeup, which there were not any K-pop idol references were used. A couple of Asian model images were used because my bridesmaids were Asian in again, “clean girl” makeup reference looks. I do acknowledge that the stylist did try her best to remedy the situation and that I had two bridesmaids ask for an added on service and for help with their hair, that they did not originally book. So I definitely appreciate her help with that, though had I known, would’ve been happy to tell them no based on time because that is not fair to the stylist (found this out later). So one star for that.
This was unfortunately a combo of their team not correctly communicating to the stylist of what I wanted causing a time crunch and not understanding what this look is and how to execute. As even with the reference it still was not was I wanted.
I will say if you want the typical wedding look of heavier makeup and an updo, they can do that fine.
Also, this was the only vendor I had an issue with their service.

Mandy and Danielle did a wonderful job on the hair and makeup for my August 2022 wedding. When I first started my search I was cautious about finding a team that could accommodate a bridal party with women from all different ethnicities - I’ve ...
heard horror stories from my friends that are women of color that they can never find the right shade and their makeup never looks good. Mandy was very quick to reassure me that she had experience working with women of all backgrounds and from there on I was sold. Prior to my wedding, I booked a hair and makeup trial for both myself and my mom so that we could make any adjustments before the day of - both trials went smoothly and Mandy and Danielle took pictures and notes to recreate the looks on my wedding.
On the day of, they showed up bright and early ready to go and efficiently glammed up 5 bridesmaids, two mothers, and me with plenty of time to spare before we had to get to the venue. Mandy made all the girls look so wonderful and elevated their natural beauty with minimal products (which was exactly what I was looking for) - my group isn’t big on makeup and Mandy found the perfect balance between too much makeup and just enough to make them shine. My friends of color were so happy to have finally found a makeup artist who made them feel beautiful! Danielle did an amazing job with everyone’s hair too - each girl came in with their hair inspo and Danielle worked her magic and did all their hair quickly but not rushed. I was impressed with how she was able to do so many different styles perfectly!
Looking back at the photos of our wedding, I’ve never felt so beautiful and it was all thanks to Mandy and Danielle! They are the dream team of hair and makeup and their wonderful people too! We could not have asked for a better experience!

y should, and I’m so glad I did! Not only did I get to narrow down finer details on what I wanted my look to entail, but it was great to get to know Betsy before spending the morning of my wedding with her. We exchanged numbers during the trial too, so I got to ask her a few questions that came up as the big day grew closer, which was super helpful! Betsy showed up right on time for both the trial and the morning-of and got set up to work magic right away. It was only a few of us getting pretty for the wedding, my maid of honor, both moms, and myself, and we all had so much fun hanging out with Betsy all morning. She was super easy to get along with and made sure to get all of our looks just right for us! None of us are heavy makeup-wearers, so we were all a little wary of looking overdone, but everyone’s look was the perfect balance of natural with a hint of glam that we were hoping for. Betsy even gave each of us our own lip color to hold onto for touch-ups throughout the day! My updo stayed up great and was not oversprayed in the slightest, (in the past I’ve had way-too-crunchy hair after, but I did not have to wash the next day!), and my makeup stayed put as well - Bonus points for my face not getting shiny, especially with all the dancing I did during reception! Thank you, Betsy, for starting off my wedding day with me and the other ladies in such a chill, fun way, and of course for making us look so fabulous!

ir and makeup and all the bridesmaids and both moms' hair for the wedding. I was so happy I chose to do a trial, it made me feel really confident and relaxed about what we were going to do on the day of the wedding. Initially I wasn’t sure I wanted to have my makeup done for the wedding - I don’t usually wear much and I hate the feeling of thick makeup that makes me feel like I don’t look like myself. But I was SO happy I decided to do a trial, because Danielle did an incredible job. She did exactly what I requested and I felt fancier but still myself. Danielle was so much fun to work with, she was so sweet and funny and listened to my requests and helped me make decisions when I got stuck or wasn’t sure about something. I have never felt prettier or more pampered than I did on my wedding day. I had so much fun getting ready with my bridesmaids and with the pretty parlor team, and everyone looked gorgeous. I’d hire them again in a heartbeat, and wish I knew how to do my own hair and makeup as well as they did it for me!

I described and showed a few inspo photos and they were so perfect in their execution. They were extremely flexible and so accommodating when I had scheduling issues on the trial date and also when I had another person who needed hair and makeup done for the wedding. For the wedding day, they came up with a timeline and we ended up finishing way ahead of schedule. I felt and looked beautiful, they really understood how I wanted to look glamorous/different but also very natural. The makeup and hair stayed put for 12+ hours through an outdoor summer wedding!
