Elana's team was recommended to us by a number of brides, and we booked with her before doing a trial or even speaking to her! We weren't disappointed in her selection of services and packages, her talented work and her approachable yet professional attitude.Sent on 08/11/2015
I also booked my hairstylist, Jarmine, with Elana, and loved working with her. What's more, I was able to send a stylist for my out-of-town (and non-English speaking!) guests, and everyone looked great. I felt that the service was top-notch and affordable.
I felt exceptionally beautiful on my wedding day thanks to Elana and Jarmine! Looking forward to working with them at my sister's upcoming wedding!

EXCELLENT! Working with Elana was so easy, from start to finish. I had Kim for my hair and Jessica for makeup and they were simply amazing. I am a no makeup ponytail kinda girl, so it was really fun to get all dolled up for my wedding. I did a practice run with both ladies and was so pleased with their work. My hair was up and perfect all evening. My make up was stunning. It really helped make my wedding a perfect day. Thank you Elana, Kim and Jessica!!!Sent on 05/29/2019

So happy with our hair and makeup!
I am so happy with how everyone's hair and makeup turned out for my wedding. Kelly was our hair stylist and Julia was our makeup artist, and everything came out perfectly. Not only that, but they were a ton of fun to have in our bridal suite all day while we were getting ready. The stylists were friendly, personable and talented, and Elana was very flexible, responsive, and easy to work with. Their rates were also much more reasonable than a lot of the other vendors I found in the area, without sacrificing any quality. I would definitely recommend using this company to anyone planning a wedding.Sent on 01/01/2019
working with you was great , you do beautiful makeup.
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.
