Hands-on, the BEST makeup team!
First off, HUGE kudos to Sophia Bella Bridal for providing such a seamless, stress-free, and enjoyable experience for not only myself, but for my mom, mother-in-law, and bridesmaids prior to and on my wedding day!
Ann, you absolutely nailed everyone's (including myself) makeup! The girls kept raving all night about how natural their makeup looked and felt. My mom and mother-in-law were entirely comfortable with the airbrush and felt really glam all day! As for myself, I felt AWESOME. I looked and felt like myself but just more of a glammed-up version, which is exactly what I was looking for! It was such a great natural look but with a few bold touches. I LOVED every last detail.
As well as your assistant, Samah, she put the final touches on everything perfectly and was so entirely helpful throughout the morning. She even touched up some of my bridesmaids' nail polish for them!
I've been raving to everyone about Ann's level of skill, professionalism, and creative style! As well as, I've been recommending Sophia Bella Bridal because Sophia, you were great to work with!
Thank you, thank you for ALL of your help and creative talents! You made my wedding day entirely stress-free and I so appreciate that.Sent on 11/03/2019

Very happy with them!
They both did such an amazing job with mine and my bridesmaids’ hair and makeup! I was having trouble finding someone somewhat at the last minute, but they were able to help me out! Everyone is so happy with them!Sent on 09/15/2019

Hair and Make-up Perfection
May I start by saying that I have had wedding hair and make-up experiences before and...meh? So I entered into this with skepticism. But that turned to pure delight when Natalie and Sophia swooped into our wedding excitement with their love, joy, and absolute incredible hair and make-up talents that had us all absolutely thrilled with the results! You want a "natural" look, Sophia knows exactly what you mean. Did you say, "Sleek and modern?" No problem. And you don't even have to ask, "Can you erase the fine lines and wrinkles," they just know how to do that! We didn't just like our hair and make-up, we LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. Every one of us. But even beyond that, Sophia and Natalie are like rays of sweet sunshine that sparkle up your wedding day with all kinds of kindness, patience, thoughtfulness and joy. They are an absolute delight as part of the getting-ready celebration. We were completely sold when, after my daughter's hair and make-up trial, Sophia contacted her to let her know that she had been thinking about ways to improve her desired hairstyle (my daughter was happy with the original trial look, but yes, indeed, on her wedding day it was in fact EVEN BETTER!). These are two thoughtful, talented, wonderful women. You can't do any better than Sophia Bella for your wedding day. Thank you for EVERYTHING, Sophia and Natalie! You will always be a sweet part of our wedding experience.Sent on 08/14/2019
