THE BEST EVER!!! I am the most picky person when it comes to hair and makeup! Kristi and team were AMAZING to work with! The nicest, most down to earth, fun people ever!! The day of the wedding, Kristi and Vanessa showed up early (and I mean 6AM early) to set up. I had a large... Read More bridal party, so they did hair and makeup on 11 of us, and we were done on time! My hair and makeup were amazing! I got so many compliments that day! They know what they are doing, they don't make you look unnatural, and they take their time to ensure amazing results! After my wedding we went straight to the after party, and at 4AM I went to bed, hair and makeup still done! When I woke up the next morning, my hair was still in place and my fake eyelashes were still on! I went to breakfast and everyone was amazed! These girls are professionals and absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!

Kristi made this experience as easy as possible for me. I was very indecisive about what type of hair style I wanted- so indecisive that she did 2 hair trials for me because I couldn't make up my mind (one updos, second one half-up). My hair is very fine and she suggested using... Read More slip in hair extensions, which were amazing on my wedding day. I couldn't even tell it wasnt all my natural hair. Even on my wedding morning when I couldn't decide what exactly I wanted, she remained patient and calm, which ultimately led to the most perfect hair style for me! She did my bridesmaids hair and and mother in laws hair beautifully as well. She arrived promptly and responded back to me within a day or two when I emailed. I don't live in NJ but when I went there for trials, she was very accommodating with her schedule. Thank you Kristi for making me feel amazing!!!!

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.
