Such an Amazing Experience

Working with 217 Beauty was absolutely amazing! I was originally referred by a friend and immediately booked a wedding hair & makeup trial with Liz and her team. I was beyond impressed with their professionalism and knowledge of beauty products and styles. The communication with Liz was phenomenal. She was very accommodating as I ended up having two wedding trials to try out different hair and makeup styles.

On my wedding day, I had 4 artists come to the hotel that my bridesmaids and I were staying at. They were all prompt and ready to get started on my large wedding party. I was assigned to Hair by Leilani and Makeup by Gaby for my wedding day. Gaby and Leilani also did my mother鈥檚 look, which came out so beautiful. I鈥檓 so glad I was able to meet the both of them at my first and second trial to try different looks with them. They created such a beautiful wedding look for me, better than I expected! We finished at the perfect time with time to spare for touch ups. I鈥檓 so happy I chose 217 Beauty to help me and my wedding party look stunning on my special day. It was such a pleasure working with them and I highly recommend 217 Beauty for any event.

Liz is Amazing!

Liz and her team did an absolute phenomenal job for hair and makeup on my wedding date 8/17/23! Liz is an absolute sweetheart to work with, and made me feel so comfortable from even the first time I contacted her over two years ago. She made me feel like family and her talent is impeccable! I鈥檝e never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day and it鈥檚 all thanks to Liz. Shout out to the rest of her team who helped on my actual wedding day: Leliani, Gabby & Jasmine- thank you girls so much for creating the most beautiful hair styles & makeup for myself, my bridal party and the Moms 鉂わ笍. Our makeup stayed in place for the whole day (and there were so much tears!) and the hair styles were absolutely beautiful! If you are a New Jersey Bride, know your wedding hair/makeup is in the best hands if you book with Liz and her 217Beauty team!! So much love to you Liz! 馃グ

Fantastic!

Liz, the owner, was fantastic to work with, super responsive, and very talented! She and Isabele did an amazing job with my makeup and hair, respectively, and my mom and my bridesmaids loved their makeup and hair, too. They are both also very kind and great to work with. Liz did a fantastic job with my makeup and achieved the natural look I was going for, and I loved my wedding hair! I had been a little worried since I decided to change my hair significantly from the trial, but Liz and Isabele really instilled confidence. I was super happy with the results! Thanks, Liz and Isabele!
