INCREDIBLE!! I have got to say, she was reasonably priced for such a talented artist!! Elizabeth is also the sweetest thing on two feet. She did my Bridal Shower hair & makeup as well as my Wedding day hair. I first learned of her when my sister was getting married two years ago... Read More and I knew I had to have her be apart of my look for my special day. My hair for my wedding was EXACTLY what I was hoping for and looked even BETTER than the picture I used as inspiration. She was in charge of doing my entire wedding party and they all looked fabulous. All of my girls (and myself) agreed she will be used for future events!! Thanks, Liz! xoxo

Elizabeth and Kristen did an amazing job for the hair and makeup for our wedding! Elizabeth really understood where i was coming from and that i wanted to look like myself and didnt wear a ton of make up usually but i wanted to feel dressed up. She did my make up early in the... Read More afternoon and throughout the remaining hours before the big moment i decided i wanted to add a little more she was absolutely wonderful and i remember her saying to me "Only you can tell me what you want i cant come to that decision for you" which I absolutely agreed with her on. She never pushed me to add more make up and let me decide if i wanted to do more. Which i was incredibly thankful for. The end product was amazing and i felt beautiful. My bridesmaids and my mom also looked STUNNING! two of bridesmaids are actually using her for their weddings as well. Both Elizabeth and Kristen were incredibly chilled out they made the day fun. I know all the girls enjoyed talking with Elizabeth and Kristen as they got us ready. I am so incredibly thankful for everything they did. I felt so beautiful that day! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

I am so happy I chose Elizabeth as the hair/make up artist for my wedding. I had previously been a bridesmaid in a wedding she'd done and only signed up for an updo. I was kicking myself once I saw how amazing she was at make up too. For that wedding and for mine, Elizabeth and... Read More one other artist (Kristen/Nicole) showed up early. As they worked they chatted with everyone like old friends and were so efficient they were done right on time. I'd been in a few weddings where we were late getting to the ceremony because of hair/make up so it made choosing Elizabeth easier because I knew she was great at staying on time. She uses high end products, her brushes are clean, she uses airbrush foundation, and she has a great variety of shadows/eyelashes. She really listens when you say what you'd like and she'd rather take the time to make sure everyone likes how they look and isn't offended if you ask for something to be changed/adjusted. Lastly, the price is very affordable. I'd done some research and determined that The Updo Guru was the highest quality for a very affordable price. I highly recommend The Updo Guru and want to say thank you for making me feel confident and stress free on my wedding day. You are the best! I can't wait to share pictures once I get them back from the photographer.

Elizabeth Jones absolutely lives up to her name: The Updo Guru! From the trials all the way to the special day, Liz was perfectly magnificent! I really had no idea what I wanted to do for my hair and make-up so I put my faith in her completely and she worked magic. I never felt... Read More as beautiful as I did on the day of my wedding! As I look at my beautiful pictures from Ephemera Photographics, I can truly appreciate her handiwork, because I just LOVE the way my hair and make-up looked.

My mother couldn't stop crying because she was so happy. My sisters were stunning all because of you girls, Liz and Kristin. So, if you want to feel special, look beautiful, and photograph perfectly, then you need to book The Updo Guru, Elizabeth Jones, for your hair and make-up. Thank you girls so much for everything!
