Behind the Veil was such a joy to work with! From the first trial I knew that I was in good hands. The day of the wedding Angela, Brittany and Maria did such an amazing job on all my girls - and I had a lot of picky bridesmaids! Maria even did an up-do on the fly for me because it started to rain and my hair started to fall. It was even more amazing than my initial hair do! The whole day went extremely smooth and we even ended a little early! I am so glad I chose Behind the Veil and would highly recommend them to anyone on their big day!
The staff at behind the veil were incredible! From initial scheduling, trial for services, and everything on the big day Angela, Maria, Nancy, and Sara were awesome! Not only is their work beautiful, they are super fun and thoughtful. it was easy to relax and enjoy my wedding day with the Vehind the Veil staff taking care of us! Thank you all for doing such a beautiful job and making my wedding day fantastic!
I can't say enough good things about Behind the Veil. From the very first meeting they made me feel comfortable and right at home. It is amazing how they can take pictures and your thoughts and transform them into exactly what you were looking for. Both Melanie and Marie were extremely professional, but at the same time it felt like we were hanging out with the girls while we were getting ready, which was so much fun. Even when I had a last minute change on my wedding day there were able to accommodate without any hesitation. My girls, the moms, and I all looked beautiful!
LOVED these ladies. Renee did hair and Melanie did makeup and they were absolutely amazing. Not only are they incredibly talented and made us all feel like beauty queens, they were just fun to be around. That was almost as important to me as how our hair/makeup turned out! I had 8 bridesmaids and then my mom and myself. That is a lot of people, and they managed to get everyone finished in the time they set up. It was a long day, but it honestly felt like they were just part of our group and chatting and laughing with us about whatever nonsense we were talking about. When my photographer arrived, they were getting ready to head out but were gracious enough to stick around for some photos :) Cannot recommend these ladies enough! Thank you Renee and Melanie for making us look like babes, and tolerating Mariah Carey Christmas music and 90s Toni Braxton slow jams. You guys rock.
I absolutely LOVED my hair and makeup for my wedding! Caitlin was super nice, and did my hair + 9 others (bridesmaids and moms), and every single hairdo was amazing! She really listened and did all of our hair differently but they all were cohesive and looked great together. I had even changed my mind of what I wanted after the trial, so she did my hair completely differently, but exactly how I wanted. I loved it!
Mara did our makeup and I got so many compliments on how gorgeous I looked! My airbrush makeup stayed flawless all night, even though it was sprinkling outside for the ceremony. A few girls weren't sure if they wanted to get their makeup done, but as soon as they saw how good of a job Mara did, they wanted to get theirs done too. She was flexible, and said it was no problem to add 2 more girls to get their makeup done the day-of.
Behind the Veil was really easy to work with. They were great at communicating details for the trial and the wedding day, so I was able to relax. I loved working with them, and would highly recommend them!
So happy with Behind the Veil! They were a pleasure to work with. I had a great time at my trial and while I loved it, I decided I wanted a different look for our wedding day. Renee and Joseline were awesome to work with and I was so happy how they listened to me and the way they made me look on our wedding day. I had so many compliments on my hair and makeup. My bridesmaids also were super happy with their looks, too! Thanks Behind the Veil!!
Natalie from Behind the Veil did my makeup, as well as my bridesmaids' and the best woman's makeup. She did an amazing job. I am admittedly super picky about my makeup but Natalie made me feel comfortable during our trial. She did a wonderful job and she made sure that I was 100% happy with how I looked. I was not in favor of airbrush makeup originally but she convinced me to try it for the trial and it turned out amazing both in person and in the photos. None of my bridesmaids are super makeup-y people and I didn't want everyone to look exactly alike, so she did a great job in judging what would look best on each person with very little direction. Everyone loved how they looked, which made me very happy.
The team at Behind the Veil, LLC (BTV) was a pleasure to work with. BTV gives you all the information you need to know before your big day so there isn't any last minute confusion. BTV is very responsive via email and even text messages so you feel like you are working with people rather than a company. You know all the costs up front and have to pay in advance so there is no "business talk" on the Big Day.
I would recommend booking a trial so you can get a good idea of what you will look with your desired look. I found that I wanted to "tweak" my vision a little bit so I would be the happiest on my big day. My artists Renee and Nancy had such great personalities and could do ANYTHING you ask them to. They were fun to be around but still very professional. They worked quickly but meticulously.Some of my wedding party was reluctant to get their hair and make-up done, but Renee and Nancy made them feel comfortable and beautiful. The results on were incredible! Finally, I can not rave enough about how I felt on my wedding day. I received so many compliments on my hair and make-up throughout the day and nothing moved! I looked exactly the same at 2 pm and 2 am. Working with BTV was an amazing experience that I hope to enjoy again in the future!
I hired Behind the Veil for my October 2014 wedding in St. Michaels. Angela did our makeup and Maria did our hair. They were wonderful to work with. They did exactly what each person asked for and happily did touch-ups or made changes upon request. I loved spending the day getting ready with my friends and family, and Angela and Maria helped make it so fun and easy! Everyone looked absolutely beautiful!
Behind the Veil was a fantastic choice for getting my bridesmaids and my hair done for the wedding. The reception was in Chevy Chase MD and they had no problem driving that far to do our hair and even got there early! Everyone was pleased with the outcome and I loved the quality of service they provided me from start to finish!
Angela and Renee were both so wonderful to work with. They were helpful throughout the entire process; they answered all my questions, were flexible in making tweaks from my trial, and the end result was exactly how I envisioned looking on my wedding day. My bridesmaids, Mom, Mother-in-Law, and Grandma (who all have a variety of styles, makeup preferences and hair types) were all thrilled with how they looked too. Plus, they were fun and calming to spend the day with getting ready in our bridal suite! I told Renee already but she really is 'my hair whisperer' -- somehow my flat hair kept curl all night. Thank you both so much!
Let me first just say, my wedding would have been ruined without this company. My wedding was on 9/13/14, and it was Memorial Day. I was getting the 'it's-getting-really-close" jitters and starting to contact all my vendors to make sure all of the details were confirmed. I had unwisely half-assed my beauty vendor, thinking it would be the easiest one to find. I had picked a similar company to Behind the Veil. I had my misgivings about them since our initial booking conversation had been less than professional. However, their pictures and website looked good, so I went forward with keeping them. So Memorial Day rolls around, and after many attempts to contact and confirm with my beauty vendor, they send me a TEXT saying that I didn't, after all this time, have enough bridal party members for them to come do our make up! It was terrible. I panicked and contacted any beauty salon and bridal make up company I could find. It was pretty dire, being two weeks out from the wedding.
That's were Behind the Veil swooped in to the rescue! Not only were they the quickest to respond, but they worked hard to find girls who would come to our hotel for us! It was truly such miracle. We were assigned Kristi and Melissa for hair and make up. It was probably a pain for them to be booked on such short notice, but they came bright and early (because my ceremony was at noon) in great spirits. They were very professional, prepared, and laid back.
They were so helpful every step of the way. They talked with the girls and me to get an idea of our vision for hair and make up for the day and explained why they used what and where. They made my morning so pleasant and carefree.
Above all, we looked AMAZING all day. Even after it rained on us immediately after the ceremony, our make up and hair stayed fresh and beautiful through reception. It was truly a blessing to have such good people helping me out on such a big day. Book with these ladies, they are the best.
I had been referred to Behind the Veil by the venue where our wedding was to be held and I am so grateful they gave me their information! I had the absolute best experience working with Behind the Veil, from start to finish they made everything extremely easy and affordable. My hair artist was Caitlin and my makeup artist was Angela, both of them were extremely sweet, experienced, professional and they did an amazing job. I truly felt so beautiful on my wedding day. The artists listened to everything I asked for and they made my dream idea of what I wanted to look like on my wedding day a reality. I would highly recommend the artists and this company to everyone I know and would absolutely use them again!
Behind the Veil is a fantastic company to work with for wedding hair and makeup. The trial hair and makeup visit was very fun, started on time, and gave me a great idea of how everything would look. They listened to my needs and expectations and definitely followed through. The morning of the wedding Angela (makeup) and Leanne (hair) were on time and assisted all of us in making sure we looked our best. They are so fun to be around and made the day even more magical and exciting. I really loved my look on my wedding day, which was a bit different - we had a renaissance/medieval wedding. Both Angela and Leanne made sure that we were happy with our looks and even let us modify/offer suggestions. I highly recommend Behind the Veil on your wedding day. You will definitely look your best!
I had such a positive experience with BTV for my wedding on 9/13/2014! From the very first day they were very easy to work with. The BTV staff was very communicative and responsive through email and frequently communicated to make sure that everything was on track. They worked closely with me to set up a timeline for the morning of the wedding to make sure that things went as smoothly as possible and were very helpful with the logistics of the wedding morning.
We had a hair stylist and makeup artist (Belinda & Katy) come to the house the morning of the wedding. The morning of the wedding was wonderful! Having the beauty team come to the house helped to make for a relaxing and stress-free morning. We didn't have to worry about getting out to a salon, etc. It also rained pretty heavily that morning, so it was great to be able to have hair/makeup done right at the house. I was a bit of a nervous bride leading up to the wedding, but I felt so calm and relaxed that morning! Our stylists were so sweet. They really helped to make it a very relaxed atmosphere and I'll always be grateful for that.
We were all so happy with our hair and makeup! It rained on our wedding day and I was amazed at how well both my hair and makeup held up! The style stayed together for the whole day and night and looked great in pictures. BTV really makes you feel special on your wedding day and does a fantastic job. We had a great experience and I would absolutely recommend them!
I was so lucky to have a wonderful hair and make-up artist that made my day wonderful, Renee' and Mara. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much!!!
