Updo's is an absolute treasure in the world of beauty. In our search for who could truly elevate our look for wedding day, EVERYONE recommended Updo's. From our bridal portrait session to wedding day hair and makeup was like a true hollywood experience! The team of stylists came...

I loved that we could show a picture as an example and this team of talented ladies were able to recreate the look. It was such a pleasant experience from point of contact to day of. Updo's are experienced professionals that were prompt and completed hair/makeup in a timely fashion-which is so very important when bridal portrait & wedding day has a strict timeframe, their approach is calm and they have wonderful sense of humor! :) You immediately feel relaxed and confident that this team of beauty professionals know exactly what they are doing and they make you feel BEAUTIFUL on your most important day! Praises for Updo's! Blessings to you all for continued success!

Overall I was very pleased with Updo's on my wedding day. My hair and makeup lasted from 3pm to 11pm and looked great! They ladies that came out were very nice and made sure that everyone was pleased with their looks. I think my mom had her hair changed 2 times before she found... Read More a style she liked. The only negative thing I experienced was when I went in for my trial run. I spent about 30 minutes there and most of that time was just makeup. Amanda came in at the last minute and threw my hair up into an updo. It felt very rushed and not friendly...maybe she was having a bad day?? I felt like I couldnt tell them I didn't like it because they were ready for me to go. After that I contemplated on whether or not to use them for my wedding day. However, it was pretty late in the game to make changes and overall they had good reviews. I didn't have any other problems and, in the end, I was happy with what I got.

The team of girls were extremely nice. I had my hair and makeup done, five bridesmaids hair and makeup, the mother of the bride, the mother of the groom, the grandmother of the groom, and a flower girl. We had exchanged inspiration photos with the owner well in advance prior to... Read More the wedding since we were unable to do a trial run as we lived all the way across the country. Unfortunately, my hair looked nothing like the photo, but it ended up working out anyway. All of the bridesmaids were unhappy with how their makeup turned out; however, the girls were very accommodating in making those changes. Some of the wedding party actually took off all their makeup and undid their hair to redo it. In all honesty, it is hard to have another person do your makeup and hair as you yourself know what looks the best.

My bridal party (4 bridesmaids, 1 maid of honor), my officiant, my mom, my mother-in-law, and I all had our hair and make-up done by Updo's in April 2017. Amanda was extremely responsive by phone (both calling and texting) in scheduling. She sent us a team of 3 (Tori,... Read More Savannah, and Sarah). Tori was AMAZING at looking at a photo of a hairstyle and translating it into something ridiculously similar (some were even better). Our two make-up artists were fantastic. They were patient and kind, and they were willing to re-do anything. They could also listen to vague explanations of makeup that my girls wanted and translate them into gorgeous makeup! The team was on time, professional, and fun. We enjoyed spending a few hours with them and were very pleased with the final result. Thank you thank you thank you!

I loved the response time and initiative in the beginning, but I was NOT a fan of the execution. Amanda was not very friendly, she did not really talk to much to us. She seemed frustrated when we asked her to redo anything, which happened a lot, which gave her an attitude.... Read More They were responsive so I will give them that, but I was a pretty laid back bride, I wasn't demanding but I was not happy with the over all results. I had to redo my makeup, (the make up artist was very nice), and my hair had more hairspray in it then I have ever used in my life time. It did come out nice, but felt like plastic. Probably wouldn't recommend. I really am not one to write terrible reviews but I thought I should share.

We looked beautiful! The ladies did a great job with our hair and makeup. It was very convenient that they came right onsite at the venue to do everyone's hair and makeup. That is exactly what we wanted. Everyone in the group has to start and stop at the same time (a 3ish hour... Read More process for 9 people), which is a little non-traditional when you consider standard hair and makeup appointments. It just meant the moms couldn't leave early like had been discussed. Also the $25 "deposit" doesn't go towards your final bill - it's a reservation fee.

My wedding was outside, and it ended up being one of the hottest days of the summer. Fortunately, my hair and makeup as well as all my bridesmaid's hair and makeup stayed perfectly put (no melting!) despite the heat. We have Updos to thank for that. The money is worth it!
