    Practically perfect in every way!

    I met these two incredible women at a Bridal show last year. I have very thin hair and was very concerned with it looking beautiful on my wedding day. They took my Maid of Honor and I right there in the middle of the show and showed us just a little of their magic. We fell in love.... not only are they so much fun to get to know but they truly do give you the feels of confidence and beauty!

    I initially hired them just for hair ONLY without realizing that Heather does makeup as well. But boy am I glad to have found that out! Trials were easy and painless and so fun too! We tried different styles and looks and it really made the primping part exciting! My trials were done for my engagement photos and they were tested in the heat of July outside... one word... PERFECT!

    Debbie and Heather arrived on wedding morning peppy and pumped with twelve women (AND A MAN) to prepare for a 1 o’clock ceremony. Everyone was perfect by photo time and never once did we feel rushed or stressed.

    These two are professional as can be and yet still like a party all to their own. I am so thankful to have had them be a part of my day and I PROMISE you, you won’t be disappointed... not even if you tried to be!

    Wedding Hair and my long time hairdresser

    When my friend who was going to do my hair (on a budget) for my wedding, fell through I asked my long time trusted hairdresser Heather to come through. I was willing to pay for peace of mind...Not only did her pricing shock me in the best way, she was able to come to me somewhat last minute. She had time for my bridal party and even helped me with my false eyelashes. She's a valuable lifesaver and I don't know how she does it all! I'm too lazy to give reviews but I just had to give her a shout out because she's the best!
