If you haven't booked Up do's for I do's yet, you need to do it NOW! I can't express how thankful I am to Ashley and her staff, and how lucky I was that they were available on my wedding day. The staff is professional and fun, they make brides feel special, and stress free, but they also made each of my bridesmaides feel special too. We had so much fun the morning of the wedding getting our hair and makeup done. From the moment I contacted Ashley, I knew I was in good hands. Ashley and staff did my hair/makeup, as well as 8 bridesmaides, both our moms, 1 grandmother, and 5 aunts. Everyone LOVED their hair & makeup! I have and will recommend them to every bride I know. This is such a wonderful service to have!
I knew that I had made the right choice in booking Up Do's for I Do's after my awesome trial, but that decision was confirmed during my wedding on June 3. Everyone in my bridal party looked incredible. My junior bridesmaids were so excited, they couldn't stop taking selfies of their look. Even my 3 year old flower girl was all smiles in the mirror afterwards. Both stylists were professional, friendly, and great people to have present for a stressful morning. Even after she was done styling everyone, Ambur patiently awaited the arrival of my florist so she could stick individual flowers in my hair. Lindsay was a riot and so good at her job. She taught my mom and aunt the perfect trick to stop tears from flowing (ask her!) and graciously added on two last minute makeup appointments. And for those curious (I know I was!) - two of my bridesmaids have Asian skin tones and eye shapes, which presented no problem at all for these expert artists! In addition, Caitlin was a pleasure to work with during the booking process. She was always easy to reach and even sent a gift of a cute lipstick once I had signed the contract. Up Do's for I Do's was an instrumental part of what made my wedding so special and I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
I am so happy I chose Up Do's For I Do's for my wedding in Vienna, VA! From the trial to the day of everything was relaxing and stress free. Jennifer and Mindy made my bridesmaids, Mom, Mother-in-Law, and myself look fabulous! We all felt so pretty all night long. They were able to do anything we asked for. Their work was beautiful!
Up-Do's for I Do's made my wedding so easy! I highly recommend them to anyone. We had 10+ people getting their hair done and everyone was completed within 3.5 hours and looked flawless. They are great at doing ALL types of hair, my wedding party had a range of ethnicities and no hair type provided a problem. About 5 people in the wedding also got their make up done and looked flawless! Cannot express enough how great they were to work with, how easy everything was, and how beautiful they made us all feel. Perfect!
The services provided by Lisa and Leanne on the day of the wedding were absolutely amazing. They were so impressive to work with and as an added bonus, were tons of fun to have around. All of our hair and makeup looked absolutely gorgeous and stayed ALL day, despite the heat. I am SO happy that I decided to use your company because it couldn't of been better.
Absolutely loved the ladies that did our hair and makeup! All the girls looked beautiful and their hair and makeup stayed in place the whole day. They know how to have a good time and kept everyone pumped the morning of the wedding. My only comment is that the hairstylist seemed to forget some specifics of what I wanted my hair to look like, but we eventually got it - they're very willing to re-do anything that isn't "just right." Great work!
I was part of the wedding party and had my hair done by this group. The hairstyle the stylist did for me was nothing like what I asked for and looked ridiculous. When I expressed that it wasn't what I wanted, the stylist got irritated with me and indicated that she would do just a little more to fix it. I wish I had just washed it out and started again myself but the mother of the bride paid so much, I worried I would insult her generosity if I showed up to the wedding with a different hairstyle. So now there are countless family photos of me looking like a 50's wannabe having a bad hair day.
The ladies who did my hair and makeup for my big day in April were fantastic! Lindsay did a makeup trial on me a few months earlier, and convinced me to use false lashes, and I'm glad she did! My makeup was airbrushed, which was an upgrade that was definitely worth it. Her style was to enhance my natural look rather than pile on product after product. I was so pleased with my look on my wedding day. Serena was super flexible with all of the hairstyles my bridesmaids picked out on the day of the wedding. She took a quick look and new exactly how to go about it! She also gave us tips on everyday hair care, and sang along with the music we were playing in the background. Lindsay and Serena helped my bridal party and myself be confident and the most beautiful versions of ourselves and that's exactly what I wanted!
Up-Do's For I Do's did an amazing job at my wedding! My wedding was on April 22, 2017. They arrived early and started right on time! They were ahead of schedule the entire day and they were so much fun to work with. Lori was so sweet and accommodating to everyone even my mom who wanted to change things up after her trial! I told my mom that Lori would make her BLUE eyeshadow look tasteful. Pretty sure my mom stole the show with the make up and it was determined that BLUE eyeshadow is coming back in style. Although most people wanted neutral makeup Lori was extremely willing to experiment. My makeup was flawless the entire day. We could not have asked for a better makeup artist. Lindsey was our hairstylist and to say she was amazing is an understatement. She can look at a picture and create the look in no time! It is amazing the girls hair looked exactly like the pictures they showed. She was really honest and let the girls know if it was realistic that their hair would turn out like the picture. She finished way ahead of schedule and made sure we were all secure before she left. Good thing she put the "RAINX" for hair in our hair because the rain was just not letting up! Caitlin and Ashley were amazing at answering my thousands of questions leading up to the wedding! Up Do's For I Do's were amazing and I highly recommend them to make you look flawless on you wedding day!
We were thrilled with Up Do’s (Ashley for hair and Lindsay for makeup). The team was so friendly and accommodating, and everything lasted beautifully all day (through tears, misty weather, a 5 hour break between ceremony and reception, and a lot of sweaty dancing!) Ashley had the great idea of doing an updo that could be let out/half down for the reception. All around amazing!! Exceeded expectations and could not have been better.
My first choice of hair stylist fell through, and Up-Do's for I Do's was there to step right in! They were running a winter sale, which allowed me to also cover hair for my bridesmaids! Setting up the hair trial was easy, and we got to sip champagne while the stylist figured out how to get it just right. Arranging the details for the day-of was a bit stressful because I didn't have access to the venue as early as I would have liked, but it all worked out and Jess braved a snow storm to come to me and do my hair! All of my girls looked great, and I got a ton of compliments on my hair. Thank you!!!
I highly recommend Up-Do's For I Do's! At first I thought I was spending way too much money on hair and makeup for the big day, but looking back I think it was all worth it! UDFID's were the only group to accommodate my large group of bridesmaids, moms, grandmothers, and aunts. My wedding was in Rehoboth Beach, DE and Liz, Amanda, Jen, and Allisun did our hair and makeup. I will say everyone looked GORGEOUS and received exactly what they asked for. The girls arrived on time to my house and were super fast/efficient! They finished 13 people 7 - 11 AM ! Most importantly the girls were so much fun and everyone enjoyed spending the morning with them! UDFID's is extremely professional from their emails, trials, contracts and staff. Thanks all!!
I selected Up Do's for I Do after seeing some of their fabulous work. I went to a trial at their awesome studio with Trish who listened to everything I was envisioning for my big day and gave me an amazing hairstyle! She was very patient during my trial and was able to try a few different styles while incorporating ideas from a few looks I showed her. On the big day she and Haley showed up early on what was already a very early morning! They both provided hairstyles for myself and my 5 bridesmaids and both moms. I was amazed at how quickly and flawlessly they worked! Even if anyone had questions or wanted to try something else they were very attentive and provided exactly what everyone was looking for. They finished with time to spare and everyone's hair looked gorgeous! I'd highly recommend working with Up Do's for I Do!
Up-Do's For I Do's did an amazing job and had a very friendly and professional staff from the first day I inquired about information for them to do hair and makeup for my wedding. Caitlin who I had been in communication with by email and was very thorough with what needed to be done and answered all my questions in a timely manner. It was time for my trial and they provided me with what I needed to do for the day of my hair and makeup trial appointment. I met with Monique for my hair. She was extremely nice and did an awesome job on my hair. This was the trial and I was very satisfied with it! Julia did my makeup and was also very nice and nailed what I was looking for how I wanted my makeup. Both Monique and Julia made sure I was satisfied before I left their station. The staff was very nice when I checked out and also followed-up with an email the next day. It was then time for my wedding day. I had made sure I gave the hotel front desk Monique and Julia's name and arrival time of 8am to direct them to my room. Of course, I made sure to tell hotel staff the company name as well. 😊 It was a few minutes before 8 am and Monique and Julia arrived. They set up their stations and started the hair and makeup on each bridesmaid. They did an AMAZING job on everyone's hair and makeup including mine!!! I loved my hair and makeup the day of my trial and didn't think it could be better than it was on that day and it was!! All my bridesmaids were VERY happy with everything and the overall experience they had that day! We all received a lot of complimemts on hair and makeup and they both lasted all day! I want to thank your staff and especially, Monique and Julia for all that you did to make the day awesome!!! I am also speaking on behalf of my bridesmaids as well!
I can't recommend Up Do's For the I Do's enough! I had Erin & Jess doing hair and makeup for myself, my 8 bridesmaids and my mom and mother-in-law for my November wedding. Erin & Jess were amazing. They were on time and did a beautiful job on everyone's styling. Between the two of them, they were able to get all of our hair and makeup done in a timely manner and even allowed one of my bridesmaids to add a service at the last minute AND had enough time to give girls touch ups before heading out for our photos. Both Erin & Jess were super sweet and fun to be with while we got ready. I also used them for my hair and makeup trial prior to the wedding and have no complaints, they were perfect! The services are a bit more expensive than I had hoped to spend for hair and makeup but it was worth it because they did a great job and made it a stress-free situation. After some research, their prices were on-par with other companies that will come to your location for hair and makeup. I also want to mention how great it was to work with Ashley and Caitlin leading up to my wedding. They were extremely communicative, answered all my questions and were so friendly, sweet and professional. I would recommend Up Do's For the I Do's to any bride!
I was new to Annapolis and did not know anyone to get any advice on vendors. I searched for weeks and read reviews for UDFID and knew I had to go with the best. Their COMMUNICATION via email and phone made the process easy, and smooth. They even sent me a gift after I booked them! Their day of work was amazing. So professional and timely, which is what you need the day of your wedding. They arrived at 6:45 AM for a 8 o'clock meet time just to make sure they weren't a minute late. They worked fast, but did amazing work. I had 9 people for hair AND make up and our two stylists left everyone feeling beautiful, and not the least bit rushed. My girls were so happy and loved the stylists so much they started taking pictures. Coming from someone SO PICKY, they were a 10/10.
My wedding day up do was still holding strong FIFTEEN HOURS LATER. Talk about staying power!!! Ashley whipped it up by 11:00 am and it stayed put til 2:00 am when I went to bed. No amount of veil tugs, family hugs, or dancing dips could misplace a hair. I was beyond pleased. It became instantly clear that Up Do's for I Do's was in a class of their own during my trial. I had gone to two other hair stylists for trials with lackluster results. I was close to giving up and just settling for doing my own hair. Ashley, my stylist with Up Do's for I Do's - who is just about the most bubbly lass a bride could ask for to share in this exciting day - introduced herself, listened to my ideas and offered feedback. I value that she was honest with me. For instance, having a braid run along the side of my head would compromise the volume I wanted. Having thick side swept bangs would borrow hair from top bun. We would navigate these scenarios together and she helped me figure out what aspects of the hair mattered MOST to me. We nailed them 100% instead of trying to make too many conflicting things happen at once and sorta achieving some to the detriment of others. No other hair stylists I visited had offered that kind of counsel. Lastly, she was speedy without sacrificing quality. I was in and out within half an hour, giving me back precious time on the day of my wedding. Lastly, Up Do's for I Do's was gracious with me during a scheduling mishap I had for my trial. I missed my first appointment and they worked with me to find another time. It was two days before the wedding but they fit me in and offered comforting words that I was in good hands. I certainly was!!! They also did the up do's for two of my bridesmaids and they felt like little princesses. I would definitely recommend Up Do's for I Do's to any other brides. I will be singing their praises from the rooftop for quite some time.
Up Do’s for I Do’s did not disappoint in providing me and my bridal party with perfect hair and make-up for my wedding day. Ashley and Lindsay did an incredible job. They arrived right on time and worked quickly doing amazing hair and makeup for my bridesmaids, mother-in-law, mother, and myself. They are laid-back and helped make the day as stress free as possible. They clearly take pride in what they do and made sure everyone felt beautiful and looked perfect. They listened to every request and gave each of us exactly what we wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend Up Do’s to any bride who wants a quality and professional service delivered by amazing women!
I LOVED working with Ashley and Lindsay from Up-do’s for I-do’s! I did my trial with them a few months before the wedding, confirming that I made the right choice. Their newly designed location is the cutest and, even though there are a few other brides there the same day as you, you still feel like a minor celebrity with all of the personalized attention you get. At every step of the way, I felt like the ladies at Up-do’s for I do’s were truly part my team. I loved being a bride (ie, I had a lot of ideas so I was probably really needy to all of my vendors!) and they promptly and kindly responded to each of my emails with great suggestions. At the trial, I really felt like they understood my vision for an old Hollywood glamour look. Since I was hoping to have red lipstick and darker, full hair, they gave me suggestions of types of lipstick to buy as well as helped me find a place close to my house which would sold reasonably priced, high quality extensions to give me the thickness I wanted! I felt confident, based on the trial and our communications, that they would be able to pull everything off the day of the wedding. There’s definitely something to be said for that – the day of the wedding, I was far busier than I expected, and really had to rely on my vendors to pull off my whole vision. I was not disappointed! Ashley and Lindsay based their timeline on the number of us that needed services. Since they arrived on time (actually, a little early even!), they got through everyone with plenty of time to spare—and let me tell you, we looked good! :) On the day of the wedding, they brought mountains of equipment to set up at our venue. All we had to do was show up, so it was super stress free! They even brought speakers to play music and set a fun vibe for my girls and me. They fit right in with the group of girls and we all chatted while they made us look our best. Beyond them being lovely ladies, they were also extremely talented. My maids and I are all over the place with skin type, hair color, hair consistency, and style preference. Genuinely, each of us adored our looks. My mom hadn’t been thrilled that I had made my hair a little darker and was doing a bold red lip for my wedding day. When they turned me around for my mom and maids to see, even my mom said how absolutely perfect my hair and makeup was-- for both me and for the vision I had of the day. To prove I’m not being totally biased with how good I thought I looked, I have a quick story. My HR manager put a slide of recent life events of my coworkers at our recent team meeting. One of my wedding photos made that slide, and I got no less than 10 emails requesting information about who did my hair and makeup! They really are that good! I couldn’t have been any happier with the service Ashley and Lindsay (and the rest of the staff who contributed to my trial and responding to my many emails!) provided. Choose Up-do’s for I do’s if you want a team of people dedicated to making your wedding day experience amazing, not just your hair and makeup!
My entire experience with Up Do's For I Do's was stress and hassle free. Everyone I worked with was super friendly and always answered my questions quickly. Ashley and Lindsay were beyond amazing on my wedding day. I have been in a lot of weddings, and usually the hair and make-up runs over. Ashley and Lindsay not only ran on time, we had tons of extra time (not easy with 7 people)! No one felt rushed, they know what they are doing and made my mom, bridesmaids, and myself look fabulous. We were able to relax with everything going on. I received tons of compliments as did my bridesmaids. Our hair and makeup lasted all night long with tons of dancing and celebrating. I was so happy with my pick of Up Do's and would highly recommend their services for any bride!
From the very first email exchange, I knew the team at Up Do's for I Do's was right for me. Ashley, my stylist, worked with me over hair trials and even went back and forth over email to create a perfect look for my wedding day hair. She and everyone else at Up Do's for I Do's made the process simple, stress-free, and really fun! On my wedding day, Ashley arrived with a huge smile, tons of excitement, and her amazing talent! She made sure that myself and all of my girls felt and looked beautiful - which we 100% did! I am so incredibly happy I chose Up Do's for I Do's for my wedding day!
Up-Do's for I Do's was wonderful! At first I was somewhat skeptical about the price (although, to be fair, many parts of getting married were more expensive than I was expecting), but Samantha and Trish were knowledgeable and incredibly patient. They handled all of my questions and requests with a smile, and stayed with me until we got my hair and make-up perfect just right. On the day of, they handled the many strong personalities in my family and bridal party with ease and professionalism, and everyone was delighted with the results. I even did my ceremony and most of my reception outdoors in the rain, and my hair and make-up STILL held up! If ever I need to look that fancy again, I would definitely call them. :)
Up Dos for I Dos was amazing!! They were so easy to work with and accommodated some last minute bridesmaids as well! Everyone's hair looked absolutely incredible and everyone was very happy with their hair look. Kara was sweet, caring and so efficient when doing our hair the day of and I was so grateful for her! I cannot thank Up Dos for I Dos enough!
Perhaps some of the most important vendors are the ladies behind the scenes getting myself and the bridal party ready. From the reviews, I knew I could depend on Up-Do's-for-I-Do's, and that I needed to reach out for wedding day makeup. My trial went seamlessly, and the company was so professional and efficient from the minute I walked in the doors. They were timely, had the contract and payment handled before the wedding to avoid any complications or hassle, and not to mention, the makeup artists were EXTREMELY talented. They took any suggestions openly and were able to make any dream of mine and the girls a reality. I can't thank Leanne and Lauren enough for my makeup, and for helping me be the most gorgeous bride on my wedding day! Sincerely, - Brittany Kenny
The staff at Up Dos for I Dos was amazing. I generally do not wear makeup/do my hair nicely on a regular basis, and they were very patient with guiding me through different styles, what would last through the day, etc. I had Erin for makeup and Valerie for hair styling, and they both were great to work with. They did not push for us to upgrade services, they were flexible in changing or redoing styles to fit my bridal party's preferences, and in the end we had 7 ladies with hair and makeup that lasted all day, even through many hours of sweaty dancing. Most importantly, all the styling looked fresh and natural, I still looked like myself!
