    Talented & Professional

    Amola is absolutely fantastic to work with. She is incredibly talented and a truly nice person. She did both my hair and makeup- everything stayed in place all day. I also wanted to mention that Lyndsey (the hair stylist she brought) is very nice and did a great job with everyone else’s hair. I can’t recommend both of them enough.

    Excellent!

    Amola was amazing to work with! I agree with one of the other brides, you are really getting a whole experience with Amola. She was incredibly flexible and accommodating as we kept having to change our plans and bridal party due to COVID. Amola also taught me what types of products work best with my skin tone and skin type, which will improve my daily make up routine. She was also very responsive.

    I told her that I wanted my hair to look like Elsa and she executed my vision perfectly! I got so many compliments on my hair and make up on the day of the wedding. I felt amazing.

    The trial was a very helpful experience, and definitely makes the wedding day go seamlessly. My hair is very thick and takes a long time to do, but Amola was so meticulous and thorough-tweaking it so it was just the way that I wanted.

    She’s also very easy to talk to and makes you feel at ease. The room I was getting ready in on the day of the wedding was somewhat hectic, with different family members coming in and out, but she was so chill.

    All around excellent experience! Highly recommend!
