Giselle is a very talented hair stylist! I sent her inspiration photos for all of my bridesmaid and myself and she nailed every one of my girl's hair styles, and mine. We were all so impressed!! She was also very responsive every time I reached out to her which is really important for me when I was planning. I absolutely loved working with her!Sent on 12/02/2019

Beautiful, personalized, and professional service--highly recommend!
Giselle did a wonderful job for my mom, sister and me on my wedding day! We did two trials together and she worked with me to develop a style that fit me perfectly for the big day. She also gave me tips leading up to the wedding for products, highlights, and hair cuts/styling that would give us the most flexibility and best options for the day-of style. All three of us had very different day-of styles and Giselle made sure we all got the exact look we wanted, all while maintaining a calm, upbeat, and fun demeanor that was perfect for what can be a very hectic day. I cannot recommend Giselle highly enough--all of our hair looked great throughout the night and we were still receiving compliments the next morning!Sent on 11/06/2019

Pintrest hair IRL
Giselle gave me my wedding dream hair! It was so unique and gorgeous and I received countless compliments. I had only one request which was ,"I don't want your typical bridal hair" and she gave me just that, this hair was something you would see walking down the runway or in a couture bridal magazine. Not only did she do a fantastic job on my hair, but everyone in the bridal party had beautiful, flawless hair. Giselle was such a pleasure to work with, not only is she so sweet and fun to work with, she makes sure you're happy and completely exceeded all expectations. One of the best in the biz and I couldn't have been more thrilled.Sent on 06/26/2019
Hair by Giselle's reply:Thank you so very much Hollie for your sweet review. This means a lot and I have to say that it has been a great pleasure working with you and your lovely bridal party on your big day. I thoroughly enjoyed the times we met leading up to your wedding as well. Wishing you so much happiness and hope we can stay in touch for any event in the future. Hugs!!
Giselle is one of the top hair stylists in DC. Her talent is amazing. She has been doing this a long time and knows what needs to be done. Her all-day package is what everyone deserves to have on their wedding day!
Giselle is one of the most beautiful people I know inside and out, in addition to being amazing at what she does. She is a consummate creative professional whose gentle caring spirit brings out the best in you and others...any day of the week. When we get to work together with brides and their families on wedding days its a beautiful day all around. Giselle is without a doubt one of 2 stylists in the field that are indeed in a league of their own. I can't recommend Giselle enough as I think so highly of her as a colleague, professional and friend in the industry.
We have known Giselle for such a long time and cannot say enough good things about her! She is so sweet and calming to be around. You can trust that she will listen to your preferences and make sure you're looking your very best on your wedding day!
