- Wedding: May 2013
I just wanted to help any bees out that may be looking for someone fabulous to do their hair and/or make up for their wedding in the Palm Springs area. I know that I was stressing trying to find someone in an area that I don’t live in, so I hope this can be helpful to someone 🙂
I went with Ally Scott from J Russell Salon in Palm Desert. She was wonderful! Her and her team (Vea Serna and Courtney Warren)arrived on time and were fun, funny and polite. We were all laughing and having a good time. They didn’t seem to be rushing us along at all and yet we finished sooner than expected and looked like a million bucks! All of my girls LOVED how they looked…including the Moms. We just got access to our professional photos and even after a looooong day in warm weather, we all still looked great. I couldn’t have been any happier with their service!
She had the girls bring in inpiration photos of looks we liked and gave us exactly what we requested. They were good about offering suggestions to make us look even better.
I met with Ally a couple of months before my wedding for a trial run and was so pleased. She understood the exact look I was going for. She took tons of photos of my hair and make up from different angles, as well as the products used and created a file of me on her phone so that on the day of, she had no doubts about what she did before and was able to recreate it. She also asked me to let her know how my hair and make up held up after the trial so she could make any adjustments necessary for the wedding. ((If you can, doing a trial run for your hair and make up is a must. That way you won’t have any surprises on your wedding day.))
Their rates were reasonable and they even came to the hotel we were staying at which was huge because trying to get 8 girls plus 2 Moms to a salon would have been crazy.
If you go with her, please let her know that Jackie, her May 4, 2013 bride referred you 🙂
