Run, don鈥檛 walk, to book Pinup for your event!

This review is long overdue. Adena and the rest of the team at Pinup is worth 10 stars - 5 stars just doesn鈥檛 cut it. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding, and it was exactly how I envisioned it. At the end of the night, I didn鈥檛 want to take down my hair or remove my makeup! And yes, it was still all perfectly intact - after more than 12 hours! They truly are the sweetest people - my bridal party was so blown away by their hair and makeup skills, and we all got so many compliments throughout the day. I look back on my photos now, and everyone looked absolutely stunning for my big day. I cannot recommend this studio enough, and I cannot thank them enough (especially Adena) for making me and my girls feel like superstars on my wedding day. Y鈥檃ll are truly the best of the best - keep up the amazing work and flawless customer service!

Reliable and Wonderful

I had a fantastic experience working with Pinup Studios! The bridal coordinator Heather was very responsive and their booking process was overall very easy to navigate. Jen did hair for me, my mom, sister, SIL, and MIL and she was just such a joy the whole time. She traveled out to my venue about an hour out of Raleigh, was on time, and we all had beautiful hair done! I would definitely recommend them for anyone who needs someone to come out the venue near the Triangle area and who wants a reliable and responsive team.

Wedding Makeup

We had makeup services for 7 of us for my wedding. I had a trial and they also did my bridal portrait makeup and hair. At my bridal portraits, I liked that girls makeup application more so I asked if I could switch and they said it was not a problem. The girls did a great job and I would recommend them.
