    Initially I had planned to go to my usual salon in Rockville, but got nervous knowing that we would be in the car for 30 minutes to Rockville, then 30 minutes to get back to Tysons Corner, plus salon time to get hair and makeup done. So instead of traveling anywhere, I decided to have someone come out to me for the same price! What a great deal! I ended up booking a hair and makeup trial to see how I liked it. Meredith was already booked so she had Leslie and Laura take care of me. They were absolutely wonderful. The trial went great. I ended up signing the contract that night. The ladies took pictures that night to document how the hair and make up looked. Between the hair trial and the day-of, we talked via email about any changes that I wanted (based on the pics from the hair trial). On the day of the wedding, they showed up early to get prepped. I think that Leslie and Laura calmed my nerves and joked with me while getting me prepped. Thanks to these wonderful ladies, I looked fantastic (all day long!). I received a touch up kit for my makeup along with a few other items to get me through the day. I HIGHLY recommend them - no doubt!

    Meredith and her assistant were very professional and efficient! I was more than happy with our make-up and the extra little "touch-up kits" provided for everyone in the bridal party!!

Meredith was a fabulous artist to work with! She was very professional and fun to work with. Meredith and her team were timely and efficient, completing all of the bridal party hair and makeup well within the planned timeframe. She did an amazing job with all of the bridemaids, mothers, and of course, the bride. The bride looked gorgeous, and I heard the ladies being complimented over and over throughout the day. I would happily recommend Meredith to future brides and hope to work with her again.
