Amazing makeup and hair!!
Well my first thing is THANK YOU. Thank you to About Face for such a flawless day with Priscila and Natasha. Both ladies did a phenomenal job with everything, and we couldn't be happier with what we received, service-wise. I had myself, my mom, my niece, and 6 bridesmaids that all needed hair done. My mom, myself and one bridesmaid also had makeup done. All of it was done in a timely manner, and everyone looked absolutely amazing. My makeup and hair were exactly what I'd hoped for (we did a trial- totally recommend!!). Thank you for making me feel so beautiful on the best day of my life!Sent on 03/25/2020

I felt like a princess on my wedding day!
I cannot give enough positive feedback about the entire About Face Design Team! I hired them for my wedding hair and makeup for myself + 7 other women. Nina was absolutely amazing to work with from booking my trials and contracting services, to communicating feedback for the artists and coordinating our hair/makeup schedule for wedding day. I am very confident in doing my own hair and makeup, but for my wedding I didn't want the stress of doing it myself. I will be very honest here and say that I have extremely high expectations. I haven't had services done in the past that I couldn't have done better/equal quality myself. The morning of my wedding my expectations were absolutely exceeded! I felt more beautiful than I've ever felt in my entire life. Dorka was my makeup artist and Casey was my hair stylist. We had 2 other ladies providing services, and I apologize I do not have their names. However every single one of us (8 girls total) loved our hair and makeup! It is not easy to please 8 women, all with different tastes and comfort levels when it comes to hair/makeup. But I must say the About Face team was perfection. THANK YOU ladies for everything! I will be back!!Sent on 12/09/2019
