The best hair/makeup
Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional and prompt with all of her communication. She was so cheerful and excited to make my dream wedding look come true. My entire wedding party and family could not have been more blown away with her services. I loved everything about my look, and I have never in my life liked when another person has done my makeup, and I LOVED her work. A few incredible stand out points that blew me away beyond my already high expectations of her that I had from reading other reviews: 1) my mother has a very difficult allergy to deal with. It is a preservative in almost all hair and makeup products. Amy was not phased by this. She immediately said it was no problem, requested further detail of the allergy and continued on to complete incredibly detailed research on my mother’s allergen, compiled a list of products that would work for my mom’s skin and hair type that were allergen free. She sent the list of products to me with the ingredient lists included. She even thought of further tactics to help protect my mom against the airborne allergen in regards to timing of the other appointments in the day and location of the services. Her care and thoughtfulness was incredibly appreciated. It made me and my family feel very cared for with something that is very difficult to deal with. 2) She had no issues driving in the winter to Granby CO. She made arrangements to make sure she was to the venue early and that unpredictable winter weather would not be an issue. (February in the mountains in Colorado) 3) She was very accommodating day of. When the schedule was shifting and bridesmaids were not in their places etc, she rearranged with ease, keeping stress low and a positive attitude. Her cheerfulness and positivity was amazing and her calming attitude was just the vibe needed on my special day. Everyone was so thrilled with their final looks (pictured). With ease she was able to integrate the wishes of all of my bridal party, making each of their looks customized to enhance their beauty, yet keeping the overall look cohesive and natural did up-does and down hairstyles and a blowout for MOB. I could not recommend her highly enough. 4) She was able to work with met to get a hairstyle that would look good with a hat on for my ceremony and then with no fixing would look stunning after the hat was removed for the dinner and reception. Ie a hat hair resistant wedding hairstyle. WHAT?! But she nailed it. Pic of hair during cake cutting after hat and eating, 100s of hugs and dancing for reference of intact curls and lots of volume with ZERO primping after hat removal. Her pricing is incredibly fair for her spectacular work and professionalism. She was an integral part to making my wedding perfect. And my curls looked PERFECT after hours and hours of dancing, sweating, and sleeping on them. Many comments on my stunning and perfect hair during a family brunch the next morning which I would have never imagined possible.Sent on 04/09/2020

Amazing hair and makeup artist
Amy was amazing to work with. First, she took all the proper precautions for doing hair and makeup during COVID-19. I sent her ideas, and she nailed my vision. Looking like the best version of myself without looking like a different person on my wedding day was important to me, and she captured that perfectly. She was professional while also being so personal. I love that she takes the time to make each look personal for every bride.Sent on 07/20/2020

Awesome experience All-around
Amy was awesome! She came to our hotel to do my hair and makeup for our elopement. We had a lot of fun chatting with her and I loved the way my hair and makeup turned out. She was awesome about sticking to my style and incorporating the flowers that meant so much to me. Amy helped make the day absolutely perfect! It was nice to find someone willing to do the hair and makeup for just one person! VERY highly recommended!Sent on 06/27/2019
