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!

An Awesome Experience
Sol was so awesome and she has such a great spirit. She took care of me, my mother and my maid of honor. Being African American, she handled our skin tones beautifully. My hair held all through the night. When my mother didn't know what exactly to do with her hair, Sol created the perfect style for her. It was so elegant. Sol was patient and understanding with everyone and even after her time was up she did not leave until we were fully satisfied. I would definitely hire her for other occasions and I recommend Darling and Dapper to any bride for make up and hair.

I was able to work with Liz. She is a magician with hair and makeup. I sat down and an hour later she made me look beautiful.
Liz is such a seeetheart and so very talented.
