    Lovely experience!

    We came to Florida for a beach vow renewal and hired Michelle to do my hair and make-up. I was extremely pleased with her! She was professional, on time, easy to talk to, and worked with my personal preferences. She created a wonderful experience. My make-up and long hair looked perfect for our beach ceremony! I would highly recommend Michelle!

    Michelle is so lovely!

    Michelle took my 1920s glam to the next level! She was incredibly sweet and lovely even coming all the way down to Pass-A-Grille beach at 7 (!!) AM on a Monday to ensure my female family members and myself look as fabulous as possible.

    I look at the photos and I cannot believe how beautiful she helped me look. It's me, but it's the absolute best version of me which is more than what anyone could ever want for their wedding. The birdcage veil, the hollywood waves. She nailed every single aspect of my look.

    I had a small wedding so instead of a wedding party I had Michelle take care of my mother and sisters and I cannot thank her enough for making them feel as beautiful as they are. My mom was very pleased with how her hair looked and one sister we describe her hair as "being finer than frog's hair". Healthy, but so fine textured there's not much anyone has been able to do with it. Michelle was able to work magic and style them so they looked so lovely.

    Thank you Michelle for being available and helping us all!

    Elegant Brides (Michelle Balderas)

    Michelle Balderas is fantastic, sweet, and so talented. She was very easy to work with and made our wedding hair and makeup look amazing. I got married on the beach on 6/14/21, and absolutely loved my hair. I have also never had anyone match my complexion perfectly with makeup like she did. I’ve gotten so many compliments on our pics. Michelle is fabulous!
