Jen and her team did a phenomenal job beautifying my 6 bridesmaids, myself, my mother, aunt, and grandmother for my wedding! Gorgeous airbrush make up, and simply sensational hair! We had a period specific (1920's) themed wedding and we could not have pulled off the authentic flapper and "20's vogue look" without the help of these talented ladies! I felt lovely on my wedding day and I couldn't be more grateful for the artistic talents of j. Ashley Sellen Couture.
Jennifer was flexible, attentive, and responsive. She provided a great service at a great value.
Jennifer was so wonderful throughout the whole planning process. She made me feel comfortable and did an excellent job. My trial was the day before the wedding because we had a destination wedding. She was so amazing and was able to make it to our house by 7 am so she could do my hair and makeup as well as both my bridesmaids hair. And this was all done a couple days after Christmas.
Jenn did all the alterations to my dress and made me a beautiful lace wedding veil, as well. I was so impressed with the quality of work - especially when we realized that taking in my lace dress was not going to be as easy as we once thought. She was creative, professional, flexible and worked so quickly - my alterations were complete within three weeks! I would definitely recommend her to ANYONE in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area!
Updated after the wedding: Jenn also did hair and makeup for me, my mom and my sister for the wedding and I couldn't have been more pleased with the result. I have never felt more beautiful. I am not much of a makeup person, so I didn't really know what I was doing when selecting a stylist for the wedding. I am so glad that I selected Jenn. She's so experienced and made us all look so beautiful. Also, people kept telling my mom how beautiful she looked! Jenn did a great job making her hair and makeup look age appropriate, but still elegant and not gaudy at all! She's fun and funny and was great to be around the morning of the wedding, too! I will recommend Jenn's (multiple) services to any and everyone in the Spokane area!
Jennifer did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup as well as on my bridesmaids hair. She even helped my mom with her eyes even though that wasn't in our original contract. She wad easy to work with and was fun to be around the morning of the wedding. She really helped keep the mood light. I highly recommend her services.
\r\nJennifer was amazing! I was doing a boudoir photo shoot and I was new in the area. I found Jennifer and she got in contact with me really fast. I was looking for pin up hair and makeup and she blew me out of the water with what she did! It was everything i could have imagined! My photographer kept remarking on how fantastic my hair and makeup looked! I highly recommend Jennifer!!
Very easy to work with! Jenn did a great job and was quick to respond to all inquiries.
Jennifer was amazingly responsive and professional. She did an absolutely beautiful job on my whole bridal party and my mom and mother in law. I got so many compliments on both my makeup and my hair. The best part was that she and the other woman she works with, Heidi finished everyone before schedule and beyond all expectations. I am extremely happy with the service provided
These ladies were amazing! I couldn't be more happy!
Jenn was amazing to work with and loves what she does. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are 110% happy with everything! She's a very talented seamstress and designer. My dress was lace, which is not the easiest to work with but she had my dress fitted perfectly and staying up all night. Jenn takes a lot of pride in her work and really wants you to be happy. She came over to my house when I called thinking my strapless dress was not tight enough to stay up. She had me try it on and made quick adjustments on the spot.
I also hired Jenn to do hair/make-up for me, my bridesmaids and mom in our hotel suite. Jenn and her co-worker were easy-going and fun to hang out with while we were all getting ready. I LOVED my hair and my makeup was flawless. I felt confident and happy all day with how I looked. I danced like crazy and my hair still looked great and stayed in place! Jenn even took the hair flowers my florist made that no one liked and re-did them to look classy and arranged around my side up-do. My bridesmaids and mom were all beautiful and very happy with their hair and make-up as well.
The most amazing part was that Jenn did the alterations while she was pregnant and then by the time of the wedding, she was still recuperating from having just had her baby! That's what I mean about above and beyond. I wondered at first if her being pregnant would affect her work but that was never the case. Jenn's a pro. She was confident, knew her limits and when she told me she'd get it all done -- she did! I feel super lucky to have found her and would recommend her to any bride looking for a seamstress or hair/makeup stylist.
Jen was great. I was very happy with everything she did for us!
Jenn did an amazing job with everyones make up and hair... even when she had a picky mother to deal with.
That was such a fun day! Your wedding was beautiful! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to work with you all.
Jennifer is the ultimate Wedding Concierge. She was willing to help me with anything I needed for the wedding. She styled my wedding look, altered my dress, did my hair and make-up, made my bouquet, did the photography, and arranged transportation. In addition to being extremely skilled, Jenn is also very creative and can easily work through on-the-spot situations. The day of my wedding was the 1st chance we had to use my bride cage veil with my hairstyle. The veil was not working well over my eyes due to my glasses and I was sad I wasn’t going to get to wear a headpiece. Jenn immediately jumped into action and re-worked the veil to be a delicate hair net over a cascade of curls at the nape of my neck. She was even able to maintain the comb piece of the veil that had a great feather decoration. She secured the comb pc at the side of the netting. Very retro – it looked prefect! I would, and do, recommend Jennifer’s services to my friends and family.
I booked J. Ashley Sellen to do both my wedding makeup and also dress alterations, and she was fabulous on both counts! First makeup: I honestly didn't think it really mattered who did my makeup because makeup is just makeup, right? But Jennifer did magic! People told me all night long how great my makeup looked, and I continue to get compliments from people looking at the photos. I am not much of a makeup wearer, and I went out and bought some after the wedding because I was so inspired.
For the dress, it was a unique situation because the wedding and the dress were in Seattle, but I was in NY and wasn't going to be in town until two days before the wedding. Jennifer was so accommodating. We had a few meetings while I was in town, and she got the dress to fit perfectly in a very short turnaround time and did a very professional job.
In addition to being extremely good at what she does, Jennifer was also super prepared, which is a nice bonus to a bride on her wedding day. She even brought a steamer for the dress.
Overall, I can't recommend her highly enough. I found her completely by accident online, and I would return to her for any event.
