I’ve had a few friends use Flawless by Tiffany and they all absolutely loved her! Two i was a bridesmaid for and she seriously did a phenomenal job. I tried to post a link to her website but I’m on my phone and its not letting me, but if you Google her she has a website.

Ann Riorden at Stranded Beauty Salon in Licoln Park is AMAZING. She’s my regular stylist. I used her a lot for event up-do’s and such. She’s also done a couple of friend’s weddings and they’re always so happy. I would recommend giving her a shot. I think the first consultation is free too!

You can call her at Stranded: (312) 772-6434 or find her here:

The woman who did our hair was AWESOME. She had no minimums and was super affordable, plus had no travel fees when almost everyone has them.

You can see her contact info and gallery (including my photos here):

This is who I’m using. I did a trial before I signed up with them and they did a fantastic job. They have also done hair and makeup for my friends’ weddings and it turned out amazing…I couldn’t stop staring at my one friend’s skin at her wedding because it was so glowing and perfect haha.

northshorebride:  Have you booke anyone yet? I am going with Goldplaited in Lincoln Park. The prices are great! $165 for bridesmaids- includes hair, makeup, eyelashes and gratutity. Really cute salon as well.

  • Wedding: December 2015 - Gibsons (Chicago - Gold Coast)

I went with Donte Mitchell (Hair) and Andrea Samuels (Makeup). I met Andrea in a Walgreens years ago and followed her on instagram so I was familiar with her work. She recommended Donte after I gave up searching for someone I trusted my hair with (curly, thick and I wanted a vintage-y pinup style). I saw Donte in a batman costume on one of his social media sites and was sold. (Of course in addition to the hair styles!) They were a total dream team to work with!

I’m using Kate Johnson Artistry. They come to you and she does hair and makeup. I wanted to make it as easy as possible on myself. I haven’t done a trial yet (and won’t until May), but her prices were reasonable (comparatively) and she’s very personable. 

I was in a wedding where Cyndee (http://cyndescosmetics.com/pricing/4575707311) did makeup and she was awesome! It was little pricey, but she is wonderful. We had Tara from Teddie Kossoff do our hair and I LOVED her as well. I’ve also used goldplaited in the past and love them too.
