    Fantastic curly up-do + bridal makeup

    Alina did an amazing job. She listened to my preferences and executed perfectly. She did both hair and makeup and it looked beautiful and stayed all day. I have curly hair, and she did an amazing naturally curly hair up-do. And - she was super speedy - both were done in

    Marissa, thank you for your kind words! I am happy everything worked out so well even without the trial, and I do love to work with curly hair, every time it's something different!

    Alina was fabulous!!

    Alina was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process!! Since I had difficulty finding a way out to her studio in Falls Church, we were able to work it out where she came to me for my trial. As someone who never does anything to my hair, I'm so glad we did the run through. When I gave Alina my post-trial feedback (based on how my hair held the curls/parts, etc.), she incorporated it all perfectly on the day of!! She was thorough, quick, professional, and all around a great hair stylist for the whole group!

    Maddy, thank you for your kind words, I am very happy we were able to achieve the goal of the look - something that works for your hair, and looks beautiful! Thank you for your time leaving this review, really appreciate that!
