Excellent experience and beautiful hair

I had a fabulous experience with them! My bridal party had very long and thick hair and they did a great job keeping us on schedule. I loved my hair as well and it stayed pretty much flawless all night!

Amazing from start to finish!

Carleen and her team did an amazing job with hair and makeup for my wedding day. When I first reached out to her to set up my trials, she took the time to really understand my wedding vision and assured me she was going to be able to execute my look. Both Carleen and Melissa on the day of the trial did a great job to make sure that they were going to create exactly what I had hoped for. I typically do not like to wear a lot of makeup and can feel overwhelmed by bridal makeup looks and Melissa did a great job to make sure I looked beautiful while still feeling like myself. I could not have asked for a better hairstyle with a double braided up-do that Carleen executed on the day of the wedding and I received so many compliments all day about how stunning and intricate the design was. Her team was extremely professional, kind and kept to their timeline perfectly - we even were done a little bit early which was nice to have time to relax before our photos. I would recommend the Chameleon Bridal team again and again!

Wonderful experience

Planning a wedding from the opposite side of the country is hard enough. Carleen and staff took what I requested and made my dreams come true. I was so happy with the work done on my hair and make-up along with the make-up and hair for my mom, step-mom and new mother in law. I HIGHLY recommend using them!

I have been a stylist and multi salon owner for more years than I really want to admit.

I have been blessed and so grateful to have been recognized as a top 200 salon owner multiple times. My passion to make women look and feel beautiful has led me to always strive to improve my skill, constantly staying up to date with the latest trends.

What makes me unique is my ability to work with any hair type, texture and length. Connecting and consulting with brides to understand what hairstyles best flatter their face shape and how to translate that into a brides vision is just magical!

I look forward to learning more about your wedding and connecting soon.
