Dana is amazing! Aside from myself being in awe of her work, my bridal party loved her too! After my trial, I changed my mind on my hairstyle and still wasn’t completely sure of what I wanted the day of the wedding! My hairstyle ended up better than I could have imagined, thanks to her!Sent on 11/15/2018

Don't look anywhere else!!! Booking Dana for my wedding hair & makeup was the best decision ever. Dana was extremely responsive which unfortunately you don't get with all vendors so this was extremely appreciated. Dana not only made me feel beautiful for my wedding but she was very organized, flexible, prompt, and made the day so much fun. She was personal with all of my bridesmaids which made everyone so comfortable getting ready. I had my trial about 2 months before my wedding which gave me enough time to decide if there were any changes. She is extremely flexible with what look you are going for so I felt myself on my wedding day. I had 6 bridesmaids, mother in law, my mother, and myself all getting hair and makeup so Dana was able to book Aly to help with the services. Together, they made such a great team and all of the girls looked incredible. I enjoyed working with them so much I wanted them to hop on the party bus and come to the wedding with us! I truly cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dana. I wish I could give more than 5/5 stars. I'd book Dana all over again for my wedding day if I could!Sent on 10/31/2018

I knew just by seeing Dana's Pinterest board of her work, she was the stylist for me! I loved the amazing and various braids she had and knew I wanted airbrush make up. She was easy to contact, has most questions answered for you on the FAQ page of her website (including tons package options and costs), and has follow-up emails (I can appreciate being a marketer myself). I came to her home studio for my trial and she was incredibly helpful! I knew much more about how I wanted my hair, but don't have the best make-up background. Dana was very helpful in showing options and letting me decide a look that suited me and made adjustments as we went. On the day her and her assistant, Aly, were on-time, brought all the supplies (including the chair and ring light), and wide awake and ready to go! They were quick and attentive for each of my bridesmaids and continued working on others while some of my ladies were late to arrive. They brought extra supplies for the ladies who decided on the day to add items like lashes too. Dana accepts PayPal too which made the whole process of paying easy and efficient. Both Dana and Aly have upbeat attitudes and made the whole morning fun and relaxing :)Sent on 08/20/2018
All 8 ladies (2 moms, 5 bridesmaids, and 1 bride) started at 6:45am & done by 12pm. July 2018 in the heat of Charlotte. Personal & hair and make-up lasted through a 2pm ceremony, outdoor pictures, 6pm trolley and reception, and exit by 1030pm - LONG Lasting!
