Everyone looked stunning

Avenue 42 did my wedding hair and makeup, along with my bridesmaids and mother! I could not have been more pleased with how STUNNING everyone looked! Jane, Krista and Jesika were truly a dream team and were so efficient the day of. You know they are talented when 0 out of 12 picky girls have no complaints and are obsessed with their looks! My sister Allison (also an Ave42 stylist) did my hair in a classic hollywood wave that was so simple and perfect, and Krista knocked my minimalist/glowy makeup look out of the park!

I truly cannot recommend Avenue 42 enough for all of your wedding hair and makeup dreams!!

Love my hair & makeup team!

Ave 42 made it so seamless and easy to get 13 people ready for our wedding day. I had the pleasure of working with Becky for hair and Jesika for makeup. The trial wasn't stressful and they took many pictures to recreate it on the big day. I actually showed up to getting ready a few minutes late and was pleasantly surprised to find that they were already 100% set up and ready to start working. I am so grateful to them and would recommend to anyone!

A great experience!

I was so happy with the work that Avenue 42's three stylists did for my wedding. I had seven bridesmaids, MOB, MOH, SIL, and myself. All had hair done and most had makeup done. Becky, Jane, and Jaynuh were professional, on time, and friendly! Becky did my trial as well, and she was so communicative and helpful with hair pieces and my veil.
My bridesmaids ranged in the hair and makeup styles that they wanted, and these three women hit the mark with every one of them! All of them were happy with how they looked.
What could've been a little stressful with lots of people in one place at our VRBO in Charlottesville was seamless and fun. Would definitely recommend!
