    The best in richmond

    If you're looking for hair & make up, look no further!! Ave 42 is incredible, not only with their flexible hair prices depending on hair length/style but also their skill! They did an incredible job accommodating all of my bridal party/MOH/MOG with soft and full glam makeup and a variety of hair styles and made everyone look their best! They also could not be nicer or more accommodating - we were a little delayed by the Monument Ave 10k street closures (totally unexpected and out of their control!) and they worked quickly to keep us on schedule despite the delay! I was so happy with my hair & makeup and have never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day!

    We All Looked Gorgeous!

    This group of makeup artists is wonderful! I had Brittany take care of my bridal party’s make up on my wedding day. She was very sweet. She made my bridesmaids and myself look stunning, fresh faced, and luminous. She even took the time to make a big deal of my sister with special needs – making her feel special and beautiful and just like “one of the girls”. I definitely appreciated that she took the extra effort to make sure I was satisfied with my makeup. I didn’t feel confident in my initial lipstick choice and she didn’t let me leave the chair until I was 100% satisfied. So glad she made me get what I really wanted. The entire team was a pleasure to work with. They made booking and everything really easy. Highly recommend.
