Here is what some of our past brides had to say:

"Ashley did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding! My curls were perfect all night, even after dancing. She also picked the perfect shadow and lip colors to complement my skin and eyes. For a makeup minimalist like myself, I thought she did a really good keeping the balance between special occasion makeup, but still being comfortable. She also did my bridesmaids hair and makeup and they looked gorgeous as well. She was able to get us all made up pretty quickly too. I recommend her to all my friends for their weddings." - Kylie S.

“Thank you so much, Blush! Artist Ashley Mendes did an absolutely amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. My now husband is a very simple man and prefers me without any makeup on so I knew I would need the right person to do my makeup so I still looked amazing on my wedding day but not look like I had it “painted” on. Ashley did such a good job. The makeup was very simple but helped enhance all of my features in the perfect way so that I still felt beautiful on my wedding day. And my hair was awesome too! She was able to style my hair in a very elegant way. It looked gorgeous but she didn’t use a ton of products and pins which was awesome because I didn’t get a headache from to much added weight to my head. She was very accommodating and on my trial day she showed me a couple of different options to choose from. I also loved that Ashley was willing to travel to my home on wedding day to do my hair and makeup. It made it that much more easy on me not having to travel all over the place wedding morning and allowing me to remain relaxed. Thank you Blush and Ashley Mendes! You’re amazing! I will definitely be recommending you to everyone!” – Beth M.

Wow - Ashley & her team did an amazing job on the bridal party hair & makeup for our wedding! She was so sweet and easy to get along with during my trial and was a big part of a relaxed and fun day on our wedding morning. She is great and taking apart example photos to capture what you really like in the photo to give you the perfect look. She wanted me to be happy and was open to feedback throughout the process. See for yourself - our hair & makeup looked great!

Ashley and her team were fantastic! Our photographer recommended that I reach out to her, and I'm so glad I did. She is fun and keeps things light while being extremely professional. I knew after my trial (about five months before) that I was in good hands. She carefully explained and documented what she was doing and was great about providing suggestions as I was still figuring out exactly what I wanted. I love that she took clear pictures that she shared with me so that I had some time to modify things slightly before the big day (after figuring out accessories, etc.). Originally, I had planned for just my mother and me to have our hair and makeup done, but decided a few months before to request her services for my bridesmaids, as well. She was really great about adding this on and quickly secured two more stylists. I especially appreciated her energy on the morning of the wedding. Her calm, easygoing nature helped me and my ladies feel relaxed and confident. We started right on time and had plenty of time to spare before pictures and the ceremony. I truly felt beautiful and excited to see my groom after she got me all prepped. I highly recommend Ashley and Blush Hair and Makeup Design. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

I used Blush Hair and Makeup Design for my wedding and had an wonderful experience! Starting with the trial, Ashley was attentive to what I had in mind for my hair/makeup and made sure I was able to voice any ideas so that we could make it perfect. On the days leading up to my wedding, Ashley remained in contact with me for us to review any changes. Then on the day of the wedding, she executed our ideas flawlessly and I could not have been happier. My makeup remained on for the entire day and I received endless compliments on my hair throughout the day as well. Ashley and her team also did my bridesmaids hair, which all turned out perfect. I highly recommend this company!!!
