    Outstanding

    Mel and her team are outstanding. As the bride, I have never felt more beautiful in my life. My bridesmainds, both moms, and even my 4 wild spirit flower girls looked perfect. On top of that, the entire team was incredibly sweet and it felt like we were getting glammed by friends we had known for life. The professionalism was beyond par and I am so glad that I chose Mel and her team.

    Wedding day

    Mel, Kaitlyn and Aaron came to do hair and makeup for my daughter’s wedding. Ours was probably a bit smaller venue and more casual than a lot of her usual engagements. We had to change our venue from Birmingham to a much smaller venue several hours away and thought she may not want to travel there. To our surprise she was totally on board to still doing the wedding!!!! It was a wonderful surprise!!!! The girls were sooo much fun but still professional. Very personable and it was like we had always known each other!! Everyone was very pleased and everyone looked beautiful! If considering a makeup/hair artist for any nice memorable occasion do not hesitate to call Mel and her team. You will not be disappointed they will deliver! Thank you so much ladies for making the day extra special!!! We love you ladies!!!!!!!

    Beautiful make up and hair for all bridal party members!

    Mel does a beautiful job with hair and makeup! She is so attentive to what each individual wants, and everyone looked so cohesive. I don't wear much makeup on a day to day basis, and Mel created a beautiful glammed up natural look for me, and I am so thankful! I loved my hair and makeup, and my mom and bridesmaids all looked amazing. I highly recommend Mel and her team!
