Throughout my wedding planning process I would consider myself a very picky bride and choosing the right hair and makeup team was no exception. Before finding Alison Harper and Co., I had my fare share of hair and makeup trials, but each one left me more disappointed than the one before, that was until I discovered this salon. The staff was so accommodating and friendly and were able to copy the hair style exactly from the picture I brought with me during my trial. I also LOVED my makeup artist, she was so attentive and truly listened to everything I was asking for regarding my wedding day look. Another thing that I loved about this team was that since I had a 2:00pm wedding, I needed hair and makeup to arrive to my hotel room at 5:45am!!!!!!, without even hesitating, they had no problem with our tight time line, while other salons told us 5:45am was not a reality. The ladies arrived prompt on the morning of the wedding, were very professional, and truly heard my bridesmaids out regarding the various looks they wanted. Since it was raining the day of my wedding, the hair stylist (for a charge) accompanied me and my bridal party to the reception venue to give us touch ups during the photos. I would highly recommend this salon to any bride and bridal party on their wedding day! All of the stylists were amazing to work with!!! THANK YOU SO MUCHSent on 11/24/2017

Everyone on the team was responsive, helpful, accommodating and very professional. I did a trial and loved my hair and makeup team! The best part was that they were able to accommodate a second hair trial closer to the wedding and adjust my hair, matching it perfectly to my inspiration photos. I wanted a boho, romantic, loose wave look and Caitlin delivered! They showed up early on the day of the wedding, timed everything perfectly while still letting us relax, and best of all, they let me use my own makeup because of my very sensitive skin and I ended up with very natural makeup that I loved!Sent on 09/20/2016

Dottie (Hair) and Jesseca (Makeup) of Alison Harper & Company LLC were amazing! Both are fabulous at what they do, and they really took my feedback about hair and makeup into account. On the wedding day, they were not only prompt and friendly, but also made me and my bridesmaids look amazing! They kept to the timeline and perfectly executed each bridesmaids' vision. When I decided to change my hairstyle from the trial, Dottie didn't bat an eye. Allison and her staff were very communicative throughout, and I really appreciated the running Google document where I could drop inspiration photos and notes for the day of. I highly recommend Alison Harper for DC-area brides!
