Perfect experience!

Working with AB鈥檚 team was so easy in preparation of, and on the day of my wedding. I was able to communicate exactly what I wanted, but also communicate with them on things I was unsure about. The open communication and pre-wedding trial made me absolutely sure I made the right decision with AB鈥檚 team. I was placed with Lauren for hair and Emma for make up, they did mine and my whole family- both girls were so professional and fun, and did SO well.

An Amazing Way to Start the Wedding Day!

My husband and I had the BEST experience with ABB! Hair and makeup were initially at the bottom of my wedding todo list and as the date got closer I realized how important it was that I felt comfortable and set the right tone for the day. Allison was such an experienced professional and worked with me closely to customize an experience that felt right for me! I specifically asked if the people on her team were comfortable and familiar with working with dyed hair (mine is purple) as well as Asian facial features and skin (me and most of my bridal party). Lauren did my hair and Nicole did my make-up - they were able to join at a home rental where my parents and siblings were staying and my whole bridal party (which included men and women) were able to hangout while I got ready. We had such a fun morning that was lively and energizing for the big day. I'm not a big fan of full glam and Nicole was able to do make-up that really felt like an enhanced version of me (light on coverage, dark smoky eye). At the end of the session, my now-husband even stopped by to get a quick hair touch-up from Lauren (he's got shoulder length wavy hair) and was able to get a quick concealer touch-up from Nicole when he woke up with a big red blemish on his face! We had the best day and the make-up lasted well into the late evening after a full day and lots of dancing.

Allison and staff were incredible!

I loved working with Paige and Leah, and Emma and Ellie were wonderful with the remainder of the bridal party! Everyone looked and felt beautiful. I had a great trial with Paige and Leah, and Leah was so flexible with my change in style from my trial to the wedding day. I am so grateful for their expertise, knowledge, patience, and kindness on my wedding day!

Allison Barbera and her styling team are incredible. 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!) I really can't say enough about how well Allison and her team care for my bridal clients. Thank you for your amazing styling and incredible professionalism, Allison!
