I don’t even know where to begin, Lori was absolutely amazing in so many ways. Before I even met her, she scheduled a phone call with me to discuss details and I felt like we already had an immediate connection, she is so sweet and easy going! She made the whole process of setting things up and payment so smooth and she was quick to respond if any changes needed to be made. Now let me talk about her talent. I originally hired Lori to do my bridesmaids hair as my best friend was going to do mine. The morning of my wedding was absolutely horrific, my friend was unable to finish my hair due to an illness. Being the awesome Lori is (she knew she couldn’t leave the bride in shambles) she rearranged her schedule for that day, so she could finish my hair which turned out SOOO GOOD!!!!!! I showed her a picture of my trial hair, and Lori was able to pull it off with no trouble at all. It looked amazing and I got so many compliments! Not to mention, my bridesmaids hair looked just as perfect! She truly has a gift and highly recommend her to anyone! I will forever be grateful that she took the additional time to complete my hair and make me feel beautiful.Read More

I had a fantastic experience working with Lori and Catie!Lori did a great job of communicating with me and setting up my trial hair and makeup appointment. Lori and Catie came to my home for my trial appointment and were both attentive to what I wanted for my wedding day. We tested a couple of different options until we got the perfect result! Lori and I emailed back and forth several times before my wedding day to get details perfected, which was great. Everything went smoothly on my wedding day. Lori and Catie were fun and upbeat as they helped me and my bridesmaids get ready. My bridesmaids were also impressed with their professionalism and work. I highly recommend Lori and Catie. I felt beautiful and confident on my wedding day, and Lori and Catie were a big part of that.Read More

Many brides quickly realize the things that are important to them in hiring the plethora of vendors required to execute a wedding flawlessly. While some things are important, other things are chosen with little or no effort. One vendor, due to the fact that looking good is of superior importance to all brides, is their hair and makeup stylist. So how do you chose a quality team to do your hair and makeup on such an important day?
You’ve dreamed of walking down the aisle with all eyes on you, looking radiant and feeling confident. To find the team to accomplish this, every soon-to-be- bride should look for the following:
• Experience, experience, experience. Does your prospective stylist have wedding experience? As with many things, it’s important to secure artists that specialize in wedding hair and makeup. Hiring your colorist to do your wedding updo probably isn’t the best option. They have not had the trials and tribulations that go along with years of wedding styling experience.
• The portfolio tells it all. Pictures work well to the story of how good a stylist is at wedding hair and makeup. You should look for: style, complexity, originality and variety. If the portfolio has a wide range of variety this is a good sign as it says that anything that is thrown at the stylists they can handle. Keep in mind that bridesmaids do not typically have a prearranged trial; therefore, whomever is hired must be well-versed in the nuances of all styles possible ranging from retro to contemporary.
• Are the stylists friendly? This is your wedding day and you need your wedding stylists to be approachable, friendly and accommodating. You need them to put your mind at ease and ensure they can keep you on schedule. Furthermore, they should stay for a touch up and make sure you are in your veil. A good stylist will give your personal attendant a “tutorial” to take out the veil after the ceremony is over. Make sure anyone you hire will go above and beyond.
• Ask the wedding planners. Even if you don’t hire the wedding planners, call and ask them who they would recommend for hair and makeup services. The good wedding stylists are connected to the wedding planners in your area. They get recommended because it has been proven through experience that they are good at what they do!
Congratulations On Your Big Day!
Sit back and relax knowing you chose well. Your dream wedding is about to take place and your wedding pictures will be enjoyed for many years to come.
More than likely you will play the role of a bridesmaid in your lifetime. The odds are pretty good this will happen given that marriage never goes out of style and everyone seems to be running to the altar….often more than once. With any wedding there are many details, planning and effort made behind the scenes that most people don’t get to see. One of the most entertaining rituals is the session of hair and makeup for the bride and bridal party. Every wedding party has a unique dynamic and things are never dull when you combine 15 women into a hotel room just hours before a wedding. Working in a bridal agency, people always ask me about diva brides. In my experience it’s not the brides that cause the drama, but rather the bridesmaids! Here are some things to avoid if you ever want to be considered a good bridesmaid.Read More
