Hi!

I’m having the same problem. I live in NYC but I’m getting married at FEAST at Round Hill in Washingtonville.  I don’t know where to go for hair.

Any suggestions would be appreciated on my end too!

hi ladies! I am from Philly getting married in Marlboro, totally hear you on this. After extensive research I found Dorothy at Pretty Bird Bridals. I found some really good reviews and pics of her work. I have not had my trial yet however she has so far been professional, easy to contact and even sent me videos and photographs of her past work. I have found sometimes it was easier to read reviews of each hair/make-up stylist and see final results versus checking out their sites, it can someitmes be deceiving.

I used Dorothy and she was amazing! She got to my venue early (which was about an hour trip for her and the travel was included in the price), listened to all of the changes that I wanted from my trial appt, and was a joy to work with. Her airbrushing helped my makeup stay on all day (with just a little powder touch up for shine) and considering I got married Labor Day weekend and have oily skin, this was not an easy feat! My hair also stayed in place from 10am until 2am and there was lots of dancing goin on. She’s worth every penny if you think about the fact that she doesnt charge for travel, uses high quality makeup, and includes airbrushing and lashes which stay on all day and night.

@marcam882: Thanks for the review, it’s really helpful to hear you had such a good experience!

I was also thinking about using Face Stockholm in Rhinebeck (they have another location in Hudson).  I’m going upstate this weekend so I figured I would check it out in person.  Has anyone had any experience with Face Stockholm before?

I’m about 20 minutes from NYC, and hour from south jersey if that gives you any idea of where I am location wise.

 

Congrats ladies!

Hi Ladies;

 

My wedding is today and I had my entire day planned out perfectly. I get a phone call yesterday from Dorothy at Pretty Bird Bridal telling me the day before my wedding, after I gave her $225, that she was not going to be able to do my hair and make up for my wedding unless I drove almost two hours to get her and bring her to my location. I was paying this woman $300 to drive to me to do my make up. This woman is very unprofessional. I would not recommended her to anyone. Not only does she charge $150 for a hair and make up trial, but she makes you drive to her and sit in her house to do the trial. what a joke. I was saved however by: Beauty by Nicole. She is charging me less and is still meeting me at my venue today. I was so upset by this woman. How do you cancel on a Bride the day before her wedding? She is very unprofessional and rude. BEWARE!!!!!

@sarma20:  

This entire review is a lie, which is why it was recanted right after it was written and after I threatened to sue it’s author for slander. Please disreagrd it, and if you would like to know what really happened please contact me(Dorothy) at [email protected] I have been serving the hudson valley’s most wonderful brides for over ten years, and I’m working in the beauty field for twenty five with the majority of that time spent in manhattan where I mastered my craft and how to please even the most demanding of clients. I love the work I do and am excellent at it! I take tremendous pride in every aspect of the services I can offer and fact that I have never cancelled a wedding in my life. For all you savvy brides out there, know this about reviews…they are not all true, anybody can write one, and they are almost impossible to get taken down once they are put up…I service everywhere from westchester- the catskills if you’re looking for an extraordiny beauty experience.
