I’m totally stressing on who to use for Hair/Makeup and how much money I can expect to spend on this. My wedding is on the Sunday of Memorial Day so most salons aren’t opened. For hair, Natalie Pagano is already book. For makeup, Aleksandra Ambrozy is already booked. I’m considering using Bella Angel or Daneene Jensen. Both these companies do both hair and makeup — is that a good idea? I kind of think that you should be good at one or the other? I was also looking at Salon Vanity but she wants to charge $100 for hair and $100 for makeup. I’ve seen her work and thinks she’s awesome, but a) it’s expensive; and b) she hasn’t been very easy to deal with over email.
Bees, help!!! What/Who do you suggest??? I want to look amazing (obviously) but am stressing which to pick because I don’t want to pay for a trial just to decide I hate it!

I know Claudia Seyler is great! I don’t know much about her pricing but she and her assistants are super nice and do a fantastic job!

I used Emily from Cheekadee – HIGHLY recommend her. I have emails from family, friends and friends of friends on FB telling me that I looked stunning – and I give Emily all the credit.

Bella Angel is absolutely phenomenal. They do really nice work and their prices aren’t bad. I also like Beke Beau for makeup and Emily from Cheekadee for makeup. Both are really good. You could always book one of them for makeup and get Bella Angel for hair but honestly they do a really nice job with both hair and makeup

I looked at Cheekadee but she quoted me at $250 for makeup alone. Seems wayyy expensive to me. Still looking for someone.

I had my make-up done by Cindy Singer and was really happy with her work for myself and all on my bridesmaids.

I got married the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend this past year, and Emily from Cheekadee came to my house. I cannot recommend her highly enough! I didn’t pay $250 though, as someone else quoted. I paid $175, and that included my makeup trial. My girls were $75 each. Compared to all the other places I contacted, that was really reasonable to me- especially since I was married on a Sunday on a holiday weekend when there are no salons open. Emily was prompt and pleasant, and everyone looked AMAZING.

Who are you dealing with at Salon Vanity? I get my hair cut there regularly, so feel free to PM me. I do love my stylist, and I think they’re wonderful there.

I would NOT recommend Claudia Seyler if you do not have a large bridal party or are interest in bride only services. She’ll purposely avoid officially booking you in hopes of being offered a larger event and then if that does happen, she won’t even take the initiative to contact you to let you know.

I ended up using Jennifer Luczsak at Salon Vanity for hair and Barbara from Bella Angel for makeup. Loved them both and would highly recommend!

For makeup, I am using Aleksandra Ambrozy. I did a trial run with her and she was great.

I recently heard of Cindy Singer and am told she is great. She did the makeup for a friend who got married last month and a bridemaid in her wedding booked her for her own wedding this march. Good luck!

I used Rebecca from Bella by Design (http://bella-bydesign.com/index.html) for hair & makeup. She came to the hotel where I was getting ready and did my hair & makeup, makeup for 2 bridesmaids and 2 mothers, and had another stylist with her to do hair for 3 bridesmaid and 2 mothers. Everyone looked amazing! I would 100% recommend checking her out. One of my bridesmaids is in a wedding next summer where they are using her because we liked her so much.
