I loved my makeup and hair for my wedding. They came in on a Sunday for me. I didn't quite know what I wanted but my stylist knew what to do and it was perfect. Highly recommend!Sent on 03/30/2015

Karen Hall did my make up trial and my wedding make up. She was so wonderful at making me feel beautiful and me feel in control of what I want and what I don't. She made it very clear that she would not get her feelings hurt if I said I did not like something because it was MY day. She definitely made me feel really special. She helped me pick all of the colors that I needed and was really professional. She arrived a little early to do my make up and really worked hard on making my make up look PERFECT. All the women at Shear Image are great and very positive. I also worked shortly with Dawniella and she couldn't do my makeup because of scheduling difficulties, but she did a great job on my very first make up trial and was just as sweet as Karen! They are able to do on site or in the salon, and also do hair! I didn't get my hair done by them because I was on a tight budget, but if you can afford both I then you definitely should because they are a wonderful group of people and made me feel like how a bride should on their wedding day!Sent on 02/15/2014

I found Cassie at Rene's when looking for someone to help me cover up my stress caused acne for our Engagement photos and knew I found the perfect match for me. On my wedding day, my party left looking gorgeous thanks to the stylists at Rene's. I not only recommend for your wedding day but I can't wait to go back for my everyday. Thank you ladies!Sent on 04/04/2011

Rene' and her team of skilled professionals can make you look fabulous for your "special day". I highly recommend her services. Barbara Gabbert, BMG Originals Custom Clothing, www.bmgoriginals.com
Rene and her team are the most professional group of stylists and artists that I have met here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In the last month, I have participated in two large tradeshows where Rene and her team did live demonstrations all day long on actual brides attending the events. They were busy non-stop and crowds gathered around to see the transformations! They were absolutely incredible! If you haven't seen her in action, know that Rene will definitely give you a timeless look, one that you will be proud to display on your mantle for the next fifty years. She and her team are super talented, extremely sweet to work with and they make you feel immediately comfortable. On her website, you'll see Rene's work experience. We think it is "uber impressive" and we LOVE how much she gives back volunteering her services for so many communities. As a Master Sylist, her prices are very reasonable and you will not be disappointed! We pass on Rene's information to all brides in my bridal salon. ~Andrea,Circle Park Bridal Boutique of Addison, TX
