I booked Lou and couldn't be happier with my decision. She was an absolute joy to work with, and even with it being her birthday she took the time to make sure that everything was perfect for me and my girls. She was more than professional, and although I brought in some ideas of what I would like, she went above and beyond to make sure I had a unique style that was all my own. The airbrush makeup and lashes looked great on me and the girls and Lou and team managed to make us look great, while still looking like ourselves, without making us look "too made up" or fake as my now husband was scared of. On such a stressful day, as wedding days are, she made the entire experience and day stress free and fun. If you want a great, down to earth, professional, and talented stylist and makeup artist for you and/or your bridesmaids I couldn't recommend a better choice! Lou and team are the best, do not make a mistake and go with someone else! Well worth your time and the decision to book Lou herself was well worth every penny.Sent on 05/31/2016

A Day at The Weyanoke with Glam Squad
Amanda and her team were a perfect pairing for our wedding! Amanda met with the bride prior to the special day in order to create the beautiful wedding hair. She colored the bride's hair and worked with no effort to add extensions for the bride. When it came to the wedding morning, she and her team arrived ready to go straight to work. It was unbelievable to watch how efficiently they worked together wasting no time. Everyone was beautiful. So many guests have raved about all of the hair and makeup. Amanda even took special time to add a few curls into the flower girls' hair which was not planned. The team even took it in stride when the bride realized that she did not have the cuflinks that she had purchased as a gift for her soon to be new husband. As the bride was having an upsetting moment and had the hotel valets looking in three vehicles, Amanda and her team did not miss a beat! They were a calming force in what could have been a potential disaster on a wedding morning. Everyone was ready in ample time to get to the altar. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this experience! Lou Stevens Glam Squad can't be beaten.Sent on 04/30/2019

Glam Squad - The Best Team!
I had the pleasure of having Lou Stevens herself and Mallory do our hair/makeup on my wedding day. No trial needed, I knew they could nail my look with a few inspirational photos. They created a schedule that was honest with the anticipated timeline and we were ON TIME and FLAWLESS. It was everyone’s first time with airbrush and the magnetic lashes, and we were all in love. The lashes were quite difficult to remove as expected, so just bring makeup remover with oil!! They were professional and fun to get ready with. They happily touched up a few of us, and Lou even customized my own lip color after describing a mauve that I don’t think exists elsewhere! I paid the travel fee, and very thankful no one had to worry about travel logistics - worth every penny. I did my research on similar services in the area but the reviews helped me make a decision. They were a little high on budget, but it’s worth it! I let the ladies know the services were optional, but the wedding party happily took advantage of it! THANK YOU LOU AND MALLORY!Sent on 09/03/2019
