    Wonderful hair and make up artists

    Magnolia Artistry was such a pleasure to work with. Chelsea and Zoe did a beautiful job on my bridal hair and make up, as well as hair and make up for members of my bridal party. They were great about matching inspo. pictures that were shown to them, while offering thoughtful suggestions as they worked. I wanted a few changes to my look between my trial and wedding day and they made them without ever missing a beat. I felt so beautiful in my final look and am incredibly grateful to Chelsea and Zoe. They are fantastic at what they do, as well as professional, communicative, prompt, flexible and such fun women with positive energy. I would highly recommend their services to anyone!

    Amazing experience!

    Magnolia Artistry were incredibly professional and friendly. They made my wedding morning absolutely stress free and amazing. My biggest compliment to them is I had absolutely no idea what I wanted for hair and makeup, so they were able to do whatever they thought looked best...what true talent! My hair and makeup was better than anything I could have imagined or seen online. My bridesmaids were also in awe of their skills! There is no other team I would recommend to make you look absolutely beautiful on the best day of your life!

    Outstanding hair and makeup!

    Highly recommend! I had a trial run and day of services for a vintage inspired updo and glam makeup. They were phenomenal! They also did my bridesmaids in a variety of styles for hair and makeup. Everyone was happy! In addition, they are nice and enjoyable people in addition to being professionally talented! 10 out of 10!!!
