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!

Kristi and her girls were recommended by my sister-in-law who has been a part of many weddings done by the Verve team. Kristi is PHENOMENAL! She is responsive, easy going, talented, and made the process so easy and enjoyable! When my mom wanted a trial, Kristi and Jamie were... Read More ready and willing (and then when she changed her look the day of, they were willing to work with her until she was happy!!) They never once made any of us feel like we were a pain for changing things or asking questions. Kristi, Jamie, Brielle, and Angela all arrived on-time, were easy going and super fun, exactly the kind of ladies I wanted to have around me on such a busy and potentially stressful morning! Many of our girls are "natural" girls or don't usually wear much makeup, and were hesitant to get their makeup done, but Jamie and Brielle made everyone feel so comfortable and were able to give us all different, natural looking makeup while making us all feel beautiful and confident! Our hair and makeup lasted all night (and for some of us, even the next morning!) Kristi also did custom spray tans for most of us and everyone looked so natural! I really cannot speak more highly of Kristi and her Verve girls!
