Amazing!

It was the best! !
Since I live in Japan, rehearsals were difficult and I was worried about how things would turn out. I sent a photo of what I wanted it to look like beforehand. And she was able to recreate it perfectly!
Also, it was raining on the day of her wedding so we decided to change her wedding time. As a result, I had to change the makeup time, and I told them the day before, but they were flexible.
I had a great time and had a great time talking to me while I was getting my makeup done. I was very happy to be able to do the makeup that I had always dreamed of doing.
Thank you so much!!!

Love love love

Enjoyed working with Fairytale Hair and Makeup for my wedding. Meghan did such an amazing job! She talked me through everything during the trial and also day of. We walked through what I didn’t like at the trial and what we would change to. Natalia worked on the hair for the girls and my mom and Michelle also worked on the makeup for the girls. We had such a fun time getting ready with them. They were so nice and made the whole process work in such a great timely manner. My hair and makeup lasted all night which is what was most important because I have so much hair, the style usually falls within an hour or so. It didn’t and I am truly appreciative of working with this group. They really know what they’re doing!
