Best decision was booking with ABB
Booking with Allison Barbera Beauty was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. Allison is truly not only an amazing makeup artist but an unbelievable person. From our very first contact via email, I immediately saw her passion behind what she does and recognized how organized and professional she was. Long before my wedding day she had a timeline for hair and makeup and was always in communication with me about everything and was always SO QUICK to respond to any of my questions. When there was changes to the timeline she seamlessly made the changes with no issues and would immediately send back revised timelines.Sent on 07/17/2019
Allison and her team were so prompt on the day of and made the day so much fun. No one felt rushed on the day of and everything went completely perfect to the timeline. Emily Buffi did my hair and Allison did my makeup. I loved my hair and my makeup SO much and wish I had them with my everyday to be my glam squad...my girls loved all their hair and makeup as well.
My mom and I went for a trial a few months before the wedding day and really got to know Allison and Emily. My mom ended up completely switching her hair from what she did in the trial and Emily effortlessly gave her exactly what she wanted and my mom loved it and looked gorgeous. Everyones makeup up was so natural and stunning. Allison is truly an artist and knows so much about makeup and what looks best( just read her blog and you will see.)
After our first look on the day of the wedding Allison and Emily came to our venue for hair and makeup touchups- I was so happy we had this option since it was very windy at our first look. ABB goes above and beyond for you on your day and makes everyone feel and look so beautiful. Allison and her team at ABB are so easy to work with and I only hope I get to work with them again some day!
Allison Barbera Beauty's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words, Lindsay! It was truly a pleasure working with you. Emily and I feel very lucky that you chose us to create your bridal hair and makeup looks. We would work with you and your mother any day, and hopefully that opportunity comes up!

Amazing, Highly Recommended!
ABB was one of the best wedding decisions I made - flexible, professional but most of all, responsive (lightening speed! ) and patient, we loved working with the ABB team. Candie and Kristin did an amazing job on the day, I felt like a princess and so did my bridal party! Both women were working in warm temperatures without proper AC due to a hotel room snafu and went above and beyond to ensure we all felt our best (and no one felt oily despite the high temperatures that day, a testament to their preparedness!). I loved working with them and will be sure to keep them in mind for future events!!! Highly, HIGHLY recommended!Sent on 07/07/2019
Allison Barbera Beauty's reply:Congratulations, Meghan! I'm so glad you were happy with the makeup services, as well with the communication leading up to your wedding day. Candie and Kristin truly enjoyed working with you all.

No matter the request, no matter the size of the bridal party and no matter how challenging the weather, the stylists on Allison's team are absolute professionals. Allison herself is the pinnacle of professionalism, sharing invoices, planning documents and schedules in a clear and organized manner and providing email responses in minutes (rather than days, THANK YOU!)
