    Your bridal party deserves the absolute best!

    As the groom, I wanted to set-up the bridal party with their hair & makeup arrangements, but since we were doing a destination wedding, I knew it would be difficult not being able to visit with the vendor themselves or do a trial months in advance. Mara Michael was by far the BEST beauty service I could have asked for. The bride really enjoyed her trial prior to our rehearsal luau, and the bridal party LOVED the team that came over to work on them the day of our wedding - they were very impressed with how they could work so easily with such a variety of hair styles and makeup likes and dislikes. Every one of the girls felt like a beautiful part of our ceremony, just as I had hoped. Chantelle was THE BEST at answering all my questions, making sure I knew the details of everything I was planning for the bridal party, and making great recommendations. The options available for the bridal party was very impressive (they ended up getting mani’s/pedi’s done onsite as well). Our flower girl LOVED being treated like one of the girls, and for that we are truly thankful! If you are considering having the beauty team come out to where you are staying rather than going to their salon, the entire team was on time, professional and friendly, and never made anyone feel like, ‘just another customer’. THANK YOU for making my bride and her bridal party feel like the day couldn’t have been more perfect! Forever thankful – Lancelot & Britni Elarionoff

    After 3 emails to different vendors Mara McMichael salon was the only ones to respond. They where very punctual and we had a fun stress free experience. Glad we used them:)

    Mara and her team did the most amazing job making me and my girls feel gorgeous for my wedding on the 12th of June 2018 in Kona, Hawai’i. I've never seen my sister look more beautiful in our lives. After seeing herself in the mirror she has now adopted a whole new way of doing her makeup that suits her. Mara was very accommodating and did my makeup not only for my wedding but THREE different occasions!
    I probably wouldn't have forked out the dough on a makeup trial (as I already knew from pics, reviews and Instagram they were the best) but since I wanted I boudoir shoot anyway I purchased her boudoir photo shoot package that Includes hair and makeup and had her do my hair and makeup like I would for wedding... AND then I planned for my bachelorette party to be that evening too! I killed 3 birds with 1 stone! I'm glad I did the trial as for my wedding I just wanted slightly different lip colors etc that suited me more.
    The team at Beauty Lux Salon also managed to get me in last minute for hair and makeup to be done exactly like my wedding for an adventure photo shoot we had two days after the wedding -which I highly recommend as I was so much more relaxed and probably more beautiful than on my wedding day because I wasn't sweating and dancing, and felt great with my hair and makeup picture perfect.

    I've been recommending Mara to brides for years. She truly listens to what her clients want and the results are always incredible. She works quickly and efficiently and makes sure there is time for touch-ups and she never seemed stressed or rushed. Beyond the beautiful makeup, Mara is simply a pleasure to work with. She is an incredibly sweet person with a very calming presence. On what can be a stressful day, it is wonderful to have someone who is happy, relaxed, and attentive around. She is also my personal hairstylist and she was able to completely fix a horrible DIY coloring job I recently inflicted on myself! It was a miracle! I highly recommend Mara!
