    Book elizabeth jones!

    Elizabeth is extremely talented, professional, and friendly - everything you want in your glam team for your big day. I met Elizabeth through my sister-in-law - she used her for her wedding, and I loved how she did everyone's hair and makeup. After I emailed her, she messaged me promptly and we set up a date for a trial.

    I met at Elizabeth's house for my trial. She took the time needed to discuss exactly what I wanted for my hair. For makeup, I didn't have any idea of what I wanted so she offered advice on what would look good. Elizabeth really took her time doing my hair and applying my make-up and it looked perfect! I left my trial knowing I would book with her!

    A few weeks prior to the big day, Elizabeth made a schedule for myself and 9 other women for hair and makeup. She made sure to confirm all the details with me a few days prior as well.

    On the big day, she was early and got right to work. She brought an assistant, Lexi, was also very friendly and sweet. Elizabeth and Lexi didn't take any breaks, and went from one girl to the next. Some of my girls had an idea of what they wanted, others gave them freedom; regardless, they did an amazing job on all of my girls! Everyone looked gorgeous and got what they wanted (and more). Our hair and makeup lasted the entire night - through sweat and lots of tears!

    In terms of my hair and make-up, it was even better than my trial. I didn't have any changes to make from the trial, other than my hair being a bit smoother (no flyaways or loose parts). Somehow though, it came out even more beautiful than the trial! My makeup too was soft and romantic, just like I wanted. I felt like a princess.

    Elizabeth made me feel the most beautiful I have ever felt. I am sure if you book with her, you will too.

    Amazing wedding makeup and hair

    Elizabeth is amazing! Can’t speak highly enough about her and her work. We got married on the hottest day of the summer and my make up did not melt off and it looked unreal. She was very flexible with last minute schedule changes. I’ve been in so many weddings and she is the best person I have ever worked with and very reasonably priced. Will recommend her always and use her for any future needs.

    Hire Elizabeth ASAP!!

    Elizabeth was recommended by my cousin. She responded quickly to my emails and invited me into her home for a makeup trial. Elizabeth used a variety of makeup brands including airbrush. I explained to her that I would be tanner come the wedding day and she used a darker foundation to show me what it would look like. The trial was perfect! I explained that I wanted my eyebrows to look more natural and she did just that. The day of the wedding she arrived early and worked for hours by herself on 10 women! She hardly took a break! She was friendly and made our "getting ready" portion of the day so fun. I don't know how this is possible but she kicked it up a notch the day of my wedding and my makeup was even more beautiful than my trial! I have hooded eyes which is a difficult shape to work with and she applied my eyeshadow perfectly to make my eyes look more open. I can't wait to find an excuse to use Elizabeth again. Don't question it, just book Elizabeth!! You won't regret it!!
