Trustworthy reviews are our priority. Businesses can't pay to change or remove reviews.
First off, I want to echo what other reviewers have said about Amanda being very easy to work with, extremely flexible with changes, and just being a very bubbly positive personality that made the day much less stressful for all of us! Her assistant showed up at my hotel room to start curling hair first, and not long after Amanda arrived as well to start doing the actual updos. I originally had her signed up to only do 8 styles, but after seeing her work two more people ended up getting theirs done - and they were still able to finish up with all 10 people in less than 3 hours! Not only that, everyone had their own unique style and they were all able to work with Amanda to get something that not only looked beautiful but suited their individual personalities. Her price was extremely reasonable, especially for an onsite service (I believe it was $50 per person).
The couple things I will say, at first I was a little bit confused because the vendor profile indicates that she also does makeup but that is actually not the case anymore as I understand it. I was referred to another vendor she partners with, Stacie Spears (Pearls and a Little Black Dress). which was somewhat frustrating at the time but Stacie was also wonderful so it really ended up not being a problem. Also my updo did not hold up throughout the whole event but honestly between how humid it was that day, how much I was dancing, and the fact that I'm the perfect height for people to knock into my hair when they hug me...she probably would've had to dip my hair in concrete to make it stay put all night :)
Overall, would definitely recommend Amanda for any Columbus brides looking for an affordable but talented onsite hair stylist!
I want to start by saying I never write bad reviews, but I felt it necessary in this instance. I hired Amanda from Styles for the Aisle after reading reviews on the website. I contacted her on the phone and we hit it off right away. We scheduled my trial run for hair and makeup a couple months before the wedding and I loved her work. She was fun and she made me look beautiful, not to mention her prices are very reasonable. Fast forward to the wedding day. Her assistant showed up around 1:30 to start curling our hair. Her assistant was very friendly. Amanda shows up about an hour later and that's when things got a bit weird. As soon as she walks in, she starts "reading" people and telling us that she was the Long Island Medium's twin sister. None of us are into any of this kind of thing and honestly we were all a bit freaked out. I thought this was some horrible joke and Ashton Kutcher was going to jump out and tell me I was being Punk'd. Because she stopped to talk ao much, it was taking way too long for each girl to get her hair done and we all felt very uncomfortable. I was horrified. This should have been a fun time for all of us girls to have fun
I hired Amanda Walter for a small, Bangladeshi wedding ceremony for my hair and makeup, as well as hair for my mom, sister, 2 cousins, and my sister-in-law. She was absolutely phenomenal! She was really quick to respond to e-mails, which made planning a whole lot easier.
She arrived at my parents' house earlier than we had scheduled and got to work right away. She was really friendly, joked around with all of us, all the while doing our hair and makeup at a really fast pace. Amanda was also able to accommodate a last-minute updo (my sister-in-law's) with no problem. My cousin even said, multiple times, that this was the first time she had her hair done and actually liked the end result!
I chose Amanda because of her experience with Indian/Desi weddings and upon seeing all the photos on this site and on her Facebook page (Style for the Aisle). She is very quick at uploading her work on Facebook (I saw my photo the next day!), so all of those photos showcase her most recent work. She is also very reasonably priced.
I cannot recommend her enough! I am planning to book her again for my larger ceremony in the summer and I trust that the end result will be absolutely amazing. If you're looking for someone to take care of both hair and makeup, look no further than Amanda Walter at Styles for the Aisle!
Amanda was wonderful! She did an excellent job with all of our hairstyles!
Amanda was awesome! Never have a met a more efficient hair stylist! She got 8 ladies and 1 little girl done in about 2 hours! Amanda came to our hotel room to do everyone's hair and it all looked great! She listened to what everyone wanted and all the girls looked beautiful! This was the first time that I gave a picture to a stylist to work off of and the end result was actually what I had pictured in my head. Thank you so much Amanda! You are the best!
Amanda and her assistant did a great job for me and all my bridesmaids! She was flexible, came to my location, and was efficient while keeping a fun atmosphere. Everyone was really happy with their hair and their experience with both of them. I would highly recommend Styles for the Aisle for any bride!
Amanda is the best, hands down! I was planning an Indian wedding and I needed someone to come to the house super early in the morning to do hair for 4-5 ladies. She arrived bright and early (5am!) ready to go and was able to do our hair in 2 hours. The hair was amazing and she was great at understanding our Indian wedding needs - she knew what would hold up in my hair and offered great tips to make sure we looked fabulous all day. It was so great to see her making my mom laugh and she made her look so beautiful. As the bride, I was so happy with her work and my hair looked amazing. To top it off, she traveled a couple hours to do my reception hair a couple weeks later - what a lifesaver! I've never gotten so many compliments. What I love about Amanda is she understands all bridal needs, so I would highly recommend her for Indian weddings. She's also affordable and made the whole process - from the booking, to the trial, to the event - a breeze. Great communication all the way! Amanda, thank you for making my special days even more special! You rock!
While other vendors often left me feeling stressed, Amanda was a ray of sunshine. Her knowledge of hair allowed her to make myself, all the bridesmaids, and the flower girls look amazing even though we all had very different hair in terms of color, length, and texture. Everything looked absolutely amazing! Our hair held up against sweat, wind, and 88% humidity. All of her responses to me throughout the entire process were immediate, upbeat, and professional. I never had any problems reaching her and she was always beyond punctual. The girls loved her disposition and she brought a ton of cheer and warmth when we were sinking into the insanity of nerves. She is head and shoulders above the rest. 5 *****
Amanda is great! She is such a talented up-do stylist and she works so quickly. I couldn't believe it only took her and her assistant only a couple of hours to do hairstyles for almost 10 women. Her rates are affordable and she has a wonderful personality! Highly recommend!
Amanda of Styles for the Aisle was the stylist for myself and my wedding party this past month. I found her by doing a search on the Internet and after talking to her over the phone booked her to come to the hotel I would stay at for the wedding. She was very affordable for the Columbus area and very experienced at updos. She did my trial and my hair came out looking just like the inspiration photo I showed her. We talked about making minor changes to on the day of the wedding. She and an assistant came to the hotel the morning of and spent about 4 hours doing the hair of myself, 8 bridesmaids and also the mothers and grandmother. Everyone seemed pretty happy with her work and I myself appreciated her making the adjustments she did after the trial. She even gave me a cute cloth clutch with a tiny bottle of hairspray in it for touch-ups. She kept us on time and looking great!
Amanda did my hair for my wedding day as well as my mom's, future mother in law's, sisters, and a couple bridesmaids. She really went above and beyond as far as making my look match extensions, etc. She was especially awesome with my "go-with-the-flow" attitude and lack of having a real plan for my hairstyle and made it look amazing. Everyone's hair looked so awesome. She was prompt, quick, took great care of us, touched everything up, and it worked out really well. Found Amanda in Capital Style Weddings on a complete whim and it was a blessing!
Amanda did my hair for our wedding day. It was beautiful! She did an updo, low bun with braids. She was wonderful on my trial run, but excellent on my wedding day! I asked her to lift the bun slightly the day of the wedding and she had no problem changing it up a little. I am glad I had her lift the bun, because when our guests hugged me they kept hitting my bun. Sometimes it even felt like they were punching it (haha). Despite all the hugs, my hair stayed all night! Amanda was very friendly and flexible. If I need my hair done again, I will hire her again and again!
Amanda was so great to work with! She is so friendly with a bubbly personality. All of my bridesmaids loved her! She was right on time with all her supplies at our hotel and moved quickly. She worked with each bridesmaid's unique requests. Her pricing is very competitive! Thanks so much Amanda!
Amanda met us at the hotel and was super fun to work with. She made the morning fly by and made sure I was very relaxed. I brought pictures to the trial of what I wanted for my updo and was very impressed with the trial. The day of my hair was flawless. It was exactly what I wanted and it didn't budge all day. My mom and bridesmaids also had styles done by Amanda and everyone was very happy with everything. Styles for the Aisle is worth every penny! I would recommend her to anyone needing a polished style for any event.
Amanda made the day relaxing and fun. She came to our hotel room and we had a blast. She was easy to get along with and was very professional. Everyone in my bridal party. including the moms, loved their hair. I would recommand her to anyone that wants a relaxing day before the ceremony!
