My initial encounter with Denise was incredibly pleasant. She shared a lot of information with me on the variety of packages available (# of stylists vs. # of hours, add-ons, etc.). She continued to remain in constant communication with me. She also organized a timeline based on the girls’ responses to their hair and skin types. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!Sent on 07/30/2018
Denise set me up with Rachel for my trial. I’m not a makeup person and Rachel walked me through each step of what she was doing, why she was doing it, and how I could recreate a similar look. For someone that knows almost nothing about makeup, this was incredibly helpful. She spent over three hours doing my trial to make sure everything was what I wanted, which exceeded my expectations of a trial.
In the end, I chose MG because of how kind and warm Rachel was (as well as her styling abilities!) and the ease of working with Denise. Also, the fee for my trial counted towards my total hair and makeup bill – which was a nice perk!
On the day of the wedding, Allie and Destinee helped with hair and makeup for my seven bridesmaids while Rachel did hair and makeup for the mother of the groom, my mother, and me. Everyone had very different hair/skin types, as well as some allergies, conditions, etc. Rachel, Allie, and Destinee paid special attention to my girls’ requests (e.g. covering cystic acne or skin conditions). In the end, everyone’s hair and makeup looked incredible! They all got exactly what they wanted – which is exactly what I wanted!
My makeup stayed intact throughout the entire day/night, despite July’s extreme temperatures and humidity! My hair did come a bit loose throughout the night (I’ll blame the veil!), but it didn’t look like a huge mess (almost like it was supposed to be that way!).
Overall, my girls and I had a great experience with MG Hair & Makeup. Would highly recommend them to all NYC brides!

I was over the moon with the service I received from MG Hair & Makeup. The artist arrived promptly and I loved both my hair and makeup. The artist really listened to what I wanted and captured the look I had in mind perfectly. She was also super friendly which was a bonus. I would highly recommend MG Hair & Makeup!Sent on 12/05/2018

Loved working with MG & loved my artist Gianna!!
I'm very happy I worked with MG for my wedding day. Coordinating everything from the beginning to the end with Denise was very easy; she answered emails immediately and I felt very taken care of throughout the entire process. I had the pleasure of working with MG's artist Gianna & I'm very lucky to have gotten her to be my girl for the day. She showed up to my trial early & ready to go. Both my mom & I had her do our hair and make up and we both felt gorgeous at the end of it and a nice plus was that she's just a doll- so of course, she was our girl! She gave me skin care advice, long lasting lip stick/stain suggestions & we emailed back and forth leading up to the day and she was more than happy to answer any skin/makeup/hair questions I had. She's very knowledgable & took time to write out thoughtful responses to my questions, which I really appreciated. The day of was so relaxing having her by my side. She knew exactly the look I was going for & executed it perfectly, also telling me how beautiful she thought I was all day & I know that added a ton of smiles to my photographs and video! She was my cheerleader :) I added extra hours for touch ups because I knew I'd be crying a lot throughout the day haha, but I barely needed any touch ups because the final product at the beginning of the day was so solid! Having her there for my special day felt like having another friend getting ready with us. Also (this is not about hair or make up) but right before the ceremony, we realized I had no one to fluff out my train before walking down the aisle and without even hesitating, Gianna said, "I'll do it!" So not only is she a super talented hair and make up artist, but she's a great team player and jumped into a position that she absolutely was not obligated to jump into. Artist Vanessa was the 2nd artist we had working on my bridal party and she also did a fabulous job, making everyone look beautiful. All of my girls felt beautiful and that absolutely radiated throughout their smiles. I will definitely be working with Gianna in the future whenever I need to feel like a princess again and if you can get her for your big day- do it!! You will be very very happy with your results :)Sent on 10/28/2018
