SO pleased with my hair and makeup, thank you!
I had been researching several hair and makeup artists in the DC area - then Bridal Artistry was recommended to me by a friend whose wedding was a few months before. Once I saw the beautiful photos of their work (plus seeing my friend on her wedding day - she took my breath away!), I contacted Barbara immediately!Sent on 08/15/2019
I knew I was in good hands from the beginning, when Barbara asked me what type of makeup I wanted for my wedding day -- it was important to me to have a 'fresh' look -- somewhere between totally natural makeup and a more dramatic look. I appreciated that the experience seemed to be tailored from the get-go.
Barbara let me know I would be working with Jacinda (hair) and Brandi (makeup). Both of them were FANTASTIC to work with, I cannot stress this point enough. Jacinda and Brandi were kind and fun to be around! For my trial, I brought some photos and further described the look I was going for. I even described to Brandi some of my past makeup mishaps when I was in other weddings (e.g., I know I look like I have tan skin, but for some reason tan makeup does not work for me, ha!). Brandi took this into consideration, and we tried 2 shades of foundation to ensure it matched my skin tone!
Jacinda was able to produce exactly the look I wanted for my hair - swept to the side with some criss-crossing in the back, definitely out of my face but still looking like it was 'down'. I brought a few options for decorative combs/clips and Jacinda tried all of them in my hair and helped me decide!
Needless to say I walked away from my trial completely excited and no longer worried if my hair/makeup would look good on the wedding day :)
Before the wedding day, Jacinda and Brandi were very communicative as we figured out the timeline and when and where they should arrive. On the day itself, Jacinda and Brandi were on-time, professional, and were so efficient while doing excellent work! They styled me, 2 bridesmaids, 2 moms, and a flower girl. My two bridesmaids (all of us have been in many weddings) kept commenting how they'd never seen the getting-ready process go so smoothly. Jacinda and Brandi made sure everyone felt comfortable in their style and made last-minute adjustments when needed.
Lastly, I made a little mistake and ended up paying Brandi twice for one of my bridesmaids' makeup. I had no idea this had happened because the day can get a little chaotic. Brandi realized the mishap, sent me a message explaining and returned the extra money. I so appreciate her professionalism in checking her totals and letting me know what had happened!
Thank you, Jacinda and Brandi and to Bridal Artistry! I was so SO pleased with everything!

Absolutely the best!
Barbara and Stephanie were the best! Barbara made everyone look so beautiful without being over the top; Stephanie made everyone's hair look absolutely stunning. They both really listened to what I wanted and worked with me to make sure I was happy with the finaly look. And they were so much fun to work with on the day! Barbara and Stephanie were really upbeat and positive and got the day off to a great start!Sent on 06/10/2019
