Giselle was the person I worked most with for my wedding. I have patches where there is far less hair from decades of trichotillomania and was really worried about it for the wedding. Giselle recommended extensions, which we tested a few months prior to the wedding so I could aclimate and it was great. It actually really helped with confidence overall which was an unexpected side effect. She was so flexible and worked with me. She truly cares about her clients. We did the 10 hour package the day of and it was worth it. We had a big lift in our dance so it was nice to have her there in case any hairs went astray. She even helped bustle my dress after the ceremony. She is incredible.

Giselle is a lovely professional hair stylist who was very responsive to my daughter and me in the preplanning and on the wedding day. She did a beautiful practice run for my daughter before the ceremony, and then on her wedding day put together the most beautiful updo with a braid, some twisting pieces, and a low bun. Just gorgeous! She gave me a blow out on the day of the wedding, and it turned out so cute! We both received many compliments. Giselle is the best!
