Best team EVER!
I don't think I have the words to describe how fabulous and talented the ladies of Sophia Bella Bridal are but I'll give it a shot. It's crazy because my hairdresser recommended me to someone else for hair services and she was booked so I was doing some research and came across Sophia Bella Bridal. I remember looking at their work and being in awe. I reached out and Sophia was the sweetest person ever. I asked her a million questions and she had an answer for everything, and each answer made me feel like she was so excited about my big day and wanting to make sure that I was prepared and happy with the services before I received them. I booked an at home trial for my mom and I with Sophia and Natalie and it was honestly one of the best experiences throughout my entire wedding planning process. The talent and passion those girls carry with them is breathtaking and they definitely know how to make anyone feel beautiful. Beyond being talented, they are so fun and caring, they're definitely the type of people you want to keep around and hang out with outside of the job. On my wedding day, April was also contracted for makeup services and she was just as amazing as Sophia and Natalie. The three of them worked so hard all morning and made each member of my bridal party feel and look absolutely beautiful. Everyone was raving about their services. I felt absolutely stunning and was in love with my hair and makeup. The way I can describe it is that they are more than just service providers. They create a once in a lifetime experience and I can honestly say that my wedding day would not have been the same without them!Sent on 07/02/2019

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
