I stumbled upon Verve on Location through Instagram while looking for a hair stylist for our wedding, and immediatly fell in love with every picture I saw. I emailed them, and instantly received a response from Kristi. Within minutes I had a date for a trial and all the... Read More information I needed. From that very first email Kristi was a delight to work with. At my trial, I showed her a Pinterest board filled with a bunch of looks i liked, and she somehow took everything I showed her and turned it into one amazing hairstyle. Throughout the planning she was always there to answer any question I had, and send me any information I needed. She was amazingly accommodating, and was even willing to change our schedule when i asked her to just a few weeks before the wedding. As if Kristi's work isn't amazing enough, she is as well. She is incredibly sweet, and such a nice person to be around. The morning of the wedding, she arrived super early , and kept us all well ahead of schedule all day. She did hair for myself, and my 6 bridesmaids, and every single one of us were thrilled with how our hair came out. Kristi was so personable and easy going, and fit right in with us all while getting ready. I received non stop compliments on how great my hair looked all day, and my bridesmaids did as well. I honestly can't say enough things about Kristi, and her work. She is so talented, and such a genuinely nice person. You will not be disappointed when booking with her. From the first email to the last touch up I truly enjoyed having Kristi apart of my wedding. Thank you Kristi for making me feel like the most beautiful bride I always hoped I would!

I had my wedding hair done by Donna and I can't say enough good things about her. She was so lovely, really listened to what I wanted and made some fantastic suggestions. She was so accommodating and helpful and really went above and beyond, and I will never be able to thank her... Read More enough for making my mom feel beautiful that day. Also a huge thanks to Kristi for scheduling everything. I'm sure I was a difficult client to work with because I was organising everything from Australia and then it all had to be done so last-minute, but even though we had a bit of a stressful miscommunication at one stage (which was probably just it all getting to me anyway), it all worked out perfectly in the end. Fantastic company and one I would definitely recommend to others.

My wedding was 4/29/2016. I absolutely couldn't imagine my day without Kristi and Candace. They really helped make my day so special. Before I even booked, I had concerns about certain products irritating my skin, but after reviewing their site and speaking with Kristi, I was... Read More reassured that they had products that were just right for me. Kristi was very prompt with responses and always very sincere and friendly, which made me very comfortable from the get go. I first met them at my hair and makeup trial, Kristi did hair and Candace did my makeup. I had pictures to go by and mentioned a few modifications for the look that I was looking for to suit me on my big day. They did such a wonderful job and the makeup they applied and my hair lasted for HOURS without a single breakout or skin irritation. I was honestly amazed because usually with more natural products I am always finding make up smudging or being patchy, but it stayed on so well all day long. Had no problem booking after how impressed I was with the whole look. Between the trial and my wedding Kristi was amazing with providing timelines and updated schedules for all the girls in my party who also chose to use them for hair and makeup. I had many updated schedules, and each time Kristi had no trouble accommodating or answering questions. Day of the wedding, Kristi and Candace arrived at the perfect time to set up and were ready to go on time. Everyone went as scheduled and everything went without a hitch. Even when girls went missing to grab something from their room or get food, Kristi and Candace had so much patience and made sure we were on time so I didn't have to stress out. They completed everyone's hair and makeup on schedule and MY GOD...I couldn't even believe how flawless we all looked. Everyone was so happy with their looks and I was just so happy beyond words for what they were able to do to start off my day on the most magical note. I think the best part is that they focus on enhancing your beauty, they make sure that you still look and feel like yourself, which was so refreshing. They will do as much as you want them to and are always happy to modify as needed. On top of that, let me take a moment to also mention how thoughtful and caring these girls were because even when they were packing up to leave they left a little care package of some bridal necessities like a sewing kit, blotting sheets, bath&bodyworks travel size bottles, a bottle of champagne, etc. I was literally floored by this note of kindness left for me. It might seem small to some, but this really warmed my heart and made me realize how much they care about their clients, which is SO IMPORTANT. My girls and I got so many compliments for our hair and makeup all throughout the night. We looked so vibrant and we all glowed that day and into the evening. Even with all the dancing and sweating, we looked perfect. My makeup and hair did not budge at all. They literally helped make my day incredible, they kept me sane, they were incredibly friendly, very professional, and just so warm and kind. If I ever have another event, I know I can count on them to glam me out, but make me feel comfortable and leave me with no worries. If you want to feel and look like a queen on your special day, then look no further than Verve On Location. They exceeded my expectations all the way through.
