Studio FBJ was everything I could have asked for. I had 11 people getting hair and makeup done- 7 bridesmaids, myself, my mother and MIL, and a "groomsmaid," so we were a pretty daunting group. RheaClare did all of the hair while Heidi did the makeup, and they did it on site at the wedding venue. My girls and I even arrived at the venue a little late (we had to stop at Starbucks... hahaha) and RheaClare and Heidi made up the time difference and even had us finished a bit early. RheaClare even curled the flower girl's hair at the last minute, even though we hadn't planned on that. They were professional but also fun (we had a blast with our cheesy music playlist), and everyone looked gorgeous. The lighting in the room at the venue was pretty rough, so as we went outside we saw that there were lines in some of our airbrushed foundations which couldn't be seen in the room. Heidi graciously went over everyone's makeup to make certain that there were no lines, and in the end everyone was perfect. My hair even stayed up-- which is a huge deal! My hair doesn't do anything, and it was absolutely stunning! My mom also hates having her hair done, because it's very fine and thin and never stays, and even she loved her hair. Many of us got the fake lashes as well, and I CANNOT recommend them enough. The lashes were gorgeous!! The beauty team really worked with us and made everyone feel pampered and beautiful. All of our hair and makeup survived through the wedding and reception, looked stunning in pictures, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a one-stop-shop for your wedding beauty!

Had the privileged of working a wedding with Joy. She had her hands full with an entire Bridal party and she showed nothing but style, poise, confidence and a fantastic sense of humor. She made everyone look like they had just stepped off the pages of a magazine and her prices were incredible. I wish I could have her at every wedding; she's such a jolt of energy and fun to the event!
