Gertie is hands down the best. She's so fun & easy to work with. She makes you look & feel absolutely beautiful. She did my hair & makeup for our wedding & it looked absolutely amazing. I still do a double take when I look at pictures from the day. She can accommodate any style / vibe you're going for & executes flawlessly. Her entire team did an amazing job. My bridesmaids wanted a mixture of updos & braids & natural curls; some wanted muted makeup & others wanted bolder looks -- the Gertie Glam team were fantastic. Everyone was truly thrilled with the finished hair & makeup. The team was super friendly, timely & extremely well organized; we finished ahead of schedule which is so nice on such a hectic day ;) I highly recommend the Gertie Glam team!!Sent on 07/30/2018
Additionally, The Eleve team (Eleve is Gertie's makeup line) opened a new champagne bar in South Austin that I got to go to for my makeup trial run. It's such a chic, yet cozy space. It was super fun be pampered while practicing for the main event. I can't wait to go back & have a glass of bubbly + browse moisturizers, lip glosses & other cool, eco-friendly, not-tested-on-animals, local products. Thanks Gertie + Team! XOXO

Gertie recently did my hair and makeup for my wedding, and I couldn't have been happier! She worked with me on a few trial runs, as well as on the wedding day, to make sure I got the look and style I really wanted, and was great at incorporating my feedback. She made my fine hair movie-star big and glamorous, and my makeup looked amazing all night long! Gertie is very responsive to emails/texts/calls, and perhaps most importantly, is very sweet and a delight to work (and chat) with.Sent on 10/20/2015
