    Just wonderful!

    Elena and her daughter were exceptionally profession, kind, considerate and helpful. They were so much more than make up artists - they made me experience wonderful and unforgettable with their personal touch and care.

    Fabulous hair and makup

    Searching for a hair and makeup stylist was one of my more difficult tasks. For me, it came down to accommodating an efficient schedule. I recently stood up in a wedding where four women (bride included) had hair/makeup and one child had hair done. She had one stylist, and we started at 9 o’clock for a 5 o’clock wedding. The wedding started late because the bride was still getting ready. I had three women (myself included) for hair/makeup and one child for hair. Due to the small size of my party, many salons would only send me one stylist too. I had to be ready by 1:00 to start getting my dress on. What time would we have to start?!

    Elana Darrus was very accommodating and had no problem allowing me one makeup artist and one hairstylist. We started at 10 o’clock! It was affordable and we didn’t have any kind of upcharge for two stylists. My deciding factor may have been a practical one (and one you should definitely consider) but it turned out perfect!

    Our stylists were Rachel and Mary Jo. My mom and I both did a makeup and hair trial (something I would recommend) and it was nice to meet the ladies beforehand. We tried false eyelashes to test if they would bother us. She had a lot of different types to choose from, very natural to very heavy. They took pictures so we were able to make tweaks on the wedding day.

    I have fine, medium length hair so I spent a lot of time researching "fine" hair updos to adjust my expectations. I don’t know how she did it, but my hair exceeded my expectations! I had lots of oomph and the back looked very full - without any extensions! My eyelashes were perfect, just enough that men wouldn’t have a clue and women would wonder if they were real. The day went like clockwork. We were done a little early so we had time to rest before getting dressed. Our updos and makeup survived the entire summer day til the party was over. Thank you Mary Jo and Rachel! Thank you Elana Darrus!

    Elana Darrus was fantastic last weekend at the Grand Hotel Wedding on Mackinac Island. The Bride, Ashley, had perfect makeup that was not overdone. Ashley brought Elana all the way from Chicago to solely do her makeup in Northern Michigan, a compliment in itself! I would highly recommend Elana to anyone.
