Great hair and makeup experience!

I’m so glad I booked WPI for my bridal and wedding party hair and makeup! Before booking with WPI, I was so confused on how to go about booking hair and makeup artists for our wedding. From the start, Mariah was easy to communicate with and clear about the minimums for booking, which helped ease any anxiety I had previously.

Laura and Kathleen were assigned to do my bridal hair and makeup, respectively. They are both such a joy to work with and listened very intently on what I wanted. I loved the way my hair and makeup came out on the day-of and was thrilled that it lasted literally all day, through tears, big hugs, and lots of smiles. Laura and Kathleen also did my maid of honor, mom, mother-in-law, and flower girl’s hair and makeup, and I loved how they worked with them to get the look they each wanted. My mother-in-law in particular doesn’t wear makeup and Laura nailed a very natural look just for her.

I also added hair and makeup for my bridesmaids a bit last minute and Mariah worked with me to find two additional artisans for the wedding day. Although I didn’t get my hair and makeup done by Katie and Daphne, I appreciated them dropping their Saturday plans to come join us. I may be biased, but I think all of my girls turned out beautiful!

Book WarPaint now!

From start to finish, WarPaint was amazing to work with! Mia and Mariah was very communicative during the whole planning process. They both made me feel very confident going into my wedding day with providing the timeline and billing details and any last minute questions. All of the artisans were great to work with on the wedding day. Amanda Jean did my bridal hair/makeup and she exceeded my expectations and got my bridal look the exact way I wanted it. Kathleen, Tina and Tia also did a great job for my wedding party! I would recommend WarPaint to anybody!

Shayla was amazing!

I had a great experience with Shayla, my makeup and hair artist. After the hair and makeup trial, she easily took my feedback and created the perfect look for the wedding day itself. I loved working with her!

Working with Jessica Mae has been incredible. I'm not usually a make up person and I decided to surprise my husband with a fun evening out. She did an amazing application on my makeup that really matched my personality. My hair looked flawless and it was definitely an evening to remember. Thank you Jessica Mae for your amazing attention to detail and always warm heart matched with fierce ambition. You inspire me!
