Quality of Service

Deciding to work with Shaune and Shaunda was the best investment I made for our wedding day. I was initially super bummed to find out that Shaune was booked on our day, when a week or so later she contacted me to say that her other bride had to postpone her wedding and she had availability--needless to say, I was ecstatic! She was friendly, responsive, and so helpful when it came to deciding how I would keep a uniform look for both of our ceremonies (Indian and American) while looking fresh for each--we ended up switching up the lip color, and it was a subtle but fantastic change. Shaunda was also wonderful, and took her time crafting a hairstyle at my trial based on the paltry number of photos I brought as examples. While my trial hair was intricate and gorgeous, it wasn't necessarily my style and I let her know. She was very receptive, and assured me that we would tweak the look on the big day to make it what I envisioned. The end result was fabulous, and somehow she got my thick, heavy Asian hair to stay put in a beautiful low up-do for 13 hours. That was truly a miracle! All of my bridesmaids also loved their hairstyles!

My wedding makeup, and that of my bridesmaids, was simply amazing. Shaune was timely, efficient, flexible, and no one felt rushed. It's obvious that she loves what she does! It sounds cheesy, but everyone really did look like better versions of themselves. My makeup felt exquisitely light and natural; none of which seems possible with professional makeup! It lasted all afternoon and evening with only one blot/light-touch up needed near the end. I received so many compliments, and even the non-professional photos look incredible! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Shaune and Shaunda, and I honestly can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you for making our day that much more special!
