So pleased with her work!
Isabel was amazing to work with! I was slacking a bit in hiring someone to do hair for my wedding, and asked Isabel sooo last minute if she was available. Luckily and thankfully, she was available, and was so nice and pleasant even though I had given her such a late notice. She did a great job with all of our hair, and everyone's hair lasted the whole day! I had forgotten to let her know at the trial that the girls would be wearing flowering crowns, but she was able to incorporate it into their hair without hesitating. She provided images of different angles of my hair at the trial so I could look at them and decide whether I wanted anything changed or not, which I thought was great. She also worked well with my makeup artist. I'm so glad I booked her, and would highly recommend her for any event!Sent on 06/01/2019

Very Skilled, professional, and made me feel so calm on my big day!
Deciding who I wanted to style my hair as well as my bridal party, was a very difficult decision but I am so happy with my decision! She is extremely talented, listened to what I wanted, gave recommendations, and was so easy to work with! There is a lot I don’t remember from my wedding day but I vividly remember sitting in the chair, as she was doing my hair, and I was feeling anxious about how close we were to the ceremony. She told me to take a deep breath, count to 3, and let it out - it worked and my anxiety started to go away. I am so thankful for her! You will be so happy when you decide to book her and her team!Sent on 07/11/2019

Isabel is the best!
I hired Isabel to do my hair for my destination elopement in Washington, DC, fall of 2018. It was nerve wrecking because I knew that I wasn’t going to be able to do a test run before my wedding day since I lived in Oklahoma. This made it was really important to me to find someone that had great communication and was very familiar with doing updos. I also have *extremely* long hair (past my lower back) and I knew it would be tricky. Isabel was a godsend. Not only is she very competitively priced, but she knows what she’s doing when I comes to hair. She arrived early and quickly got to work curling my hair and going over what I wanted. She was easy to talk to and seemed to quickly grasp what I had in mind. She was able to create a fantastic updo for me on the first try and it was *gorgeous*- better than I even imagined. Not only was it pretty, but it stayed perfectly intact ALL day. It was super windy and we were outside for multiple hours taking photos without having any issues. I continued to wear it all day and late into the evening to dinner. I finally took it down around 2:00 in the morning and it looked no different.Sent on 07/14/2019
Long story short- Isabel will not disappoint you. She is delightful to work with and is extremely talented. I would book her again in a heartbeat.
