We loved Behind the Veil! I wasn't 100% sure I wanted to get my hair and makeup professionally done before the wedding, but after the trial, I was hooked. Liz B was attentive, responsive, and absolutely a JOY to hang out with on the day of the wedding.
Behind the Veil starts by asking you questions about yourself and requesting pictures so they know what they're working with. They also wanted some inspiration pictures of what I wanted my hair and makeup to look like. Having all of that from the beginning made the whole process so smooth and quick.
I didn't make it easy on Liz: I arrived late to the trial, not giving her as much time as usual, but she jumped right in and I swear I have never felt so beautiful. For the wedding, Liz and an assistant travelled to Williamsburg and set up shop in my hotel room and were faced with six bridesmaids all getting their hair done. My bridesmaids had a lot of hair!! They each got a different style, and in the July heat (and humidity), each one of them held up like magic. Absolutely beautiful!
For my hair, Liz remembered exactly what I requested, and made it somehow even more amazing. I don't have easy hair--baby wisps all over, and I usually hate the way it looks up. Liz made it look beautiful. And I don't usually wear a lot of makeup, so she didn't go too crazy. She found makeup that matched my skin (even though it had gotten slightly darker since my April trial), and blended it so that you couldn't even tell I was wearing it, it just looked like I had great skin! The eyes were the perfect amount of makeup, and the whole thing came together perfectly. You could tell that Liz could have done a lot more makeup, but she did what I wanted, not what she wanted...and that makes a huge difference.
To anyone considering Behind the Veil, it gave me peace of mind that I could look more beautiful than ever, but still like me. The girls LOVED it and it held up through July heat like magic! Best beauty decision EVER. Thank you!
My experience with Behind the Veil was EXCEPTIONAL and also very reasonable! Everything from start to finish with Liz was amazing. I chose to have a trial which was a great decision on my part because I got to meet my stylist and she was genuine and kind from the moment I walked in the studio. It was so easy to carry a conversation while she was doing my hair and makeup and after it was done she gave me her number so I could text her with any tweaks I wanted to make. On my wedding day she made the few things I wanted changed and I couldn't have been happier! She also did an incredible job on all of my bridesmaids hair which I absolutely loved including the mother of the bride. Liz made me feel beautiful and I can't thank her enough!

Choosing Darling and Dapper to do my hair and makeup was one of the best decisions that I made when planning for my big day! Everyone was so helpful from the moment that I contacted them. Amber and Liz went above and beyond to make all of my wedding hair and makeup dreams come true! We had such a great time with them as we were getting ready and my entire bridal party looked amazing all night. It made it so much easier to have both hair and makeup being done at the same time by the same vendor. I cannot thank them enough and highly recommend them to everyone!
You are in good hands with Behind the Veil Studio!
