    My daughter and I hired Miriam to provide hair and makeup services for her wedding on 2/26/11. My daughter was looking for a beautiful and natural makeup style. Miriam's website with bridal pictures was exactly what she was looking for. We hired her and the month before her wedding, she had her hair and makeup trial. Miriam was very professional and personable. My daughter and I had a great time at the trial. It took 2 hours to complete the transformation and my daughter looked stunning! Her hair and makeup were flawless! I knew then we had made the right decision on hiring Miriam.
    On the day of the wedding, Miriam and her assistant, Jess arrived at 5:30 am. They arrived ready to work and that they did. 2 women getting ready every hour. Grandmother of the bride, me (mother of the bride), 4 bridesmaids and the bride. We all looked gorgeous!
    Miriam and Jess were so much fun to work with. We had such a great morning getting ready. My daughter's hair and makeup lasted all day, even through all the tears and dancing at her outdoor reception.
    I highly recommend Miriam Behar! She is worth every penny!

    Thank You Jo Ann! It was such a pleasure to work with your family as well! I wish you all the best!!
    I must say, Ashley and her bridal party are one of the most organized groups that Jess and I have ever worked with!!

    I am a bride from NYC and had a destination wedding in Miami with no time to go down to Miami and meet anyone for hair and makeup trials. After long and extensive research I decided to book hair/makeup with Miriam from seeing such great reviews about her and I am THRILLED that I did! My mother, my 4 bridesmaids and I got our hair and makeup done by her and her wonderful assistant, Jess. Everyone picked their own hair and makeup style and she mastered every single style. We all felt so beautiful. As a person who gets hair and makeup done at very high end places in NYC, I am extremely pleased with her work and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking her for your wedding day as she is talented, professional and very fun!!

    Miriam was quite simply perfect for me and my wedding party. I was referred to Miriam by my photographer. Because I was planning my South Florida wedding from Chicago, I first met Miriam at my hair and make up trial two days before my wedding. Nevertheless, her professionalism and flexibility in scheduling during the months prior made me feel like I was in good hands.

    During our trial session, Miriam's calming influence and easy-going demeanor was a welcome change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the wedding week. I think it contributes to her success at bringing out her subject's natural beauty. I was so impressed by her work! She made me look like the best and most glamorous possible "me" not an overly-painted mask. Moreover, on the day-of, Miriam created a unique hairstyle (which we had not practiced at the trial at my suggestion) which knocked the socks off all my guests!

    Miriam was also incredibly kind and flexible with some scheduling changes on the wedding day. All of my girls, including my very nervous mother and my tom-boy sister felt totally at home and calmed by Miriam. And EVERYONE looked beautiful! What can I say? She (and her assistant) really helped make my wedding day more beautiful and more joyful.

    Thank you so much Nury for your kind words! It was such a joy to be a part of your special day,and I look forward to working with you again in the future!!!
