    Made me look and feel beautiful!

    Kristin and the We Only Do Pretty team was wonderful to work with and they made my bridesmaids and I look and feel beautiful on my big day. During my trial, Kristin made me feel so comfortable, incorporated my feedback along the way, and made suggestions for how to show off my favorite features and go with my dress, venue, and style all while still looking like myself. On the wedding day, Kristin and her team showed up to our suite armed and ready to make us look beautiful and they executed on that commitment - WODP made all of us feel comfortable as they did our hair and make-up and confident to look like our best, most beautiful selves. She also went above and beyond to help my sister-in-law schedule make-up services for my husband's family (sisters, sister-in-law, mom) at the hotel where they were staying. I am very picky when it comes to my hair and make-up, often preferring to do it myself vs. getting it done knowing I may be disappointed (which has happened with many events and weddings I've been in as a bridesmaid). I am SO glad I trusted Kristin and We Only Do Pretty to take care of my and my bridesmaids' hair and make-up for my wedding and would recommend them to anyone getting married or going to a big event.

    The Absolute Best

    If you are looking for absolute professionals for your wedding hair and makeup look no further. I am so happy I chose We Only Do Pretty for my wedding. Eliora and Lauren were beyond amazing. Through two hair trials due to a dress change and then traveling to my out of state wedding, it was a smooth and seamless process. I wanted a very complicated braided hairstyle I was not even sure was possible and a specific look for makeup and they both executed it perfectly with seeming ease. On the morning of my wedding they arrived promptly and got right to work – knocking out six bridesmaids, three moms, a flower girl, and me. Everyone looked so beautiful and all my bridesmaids were very happy with their looks – many pictures were taken. What’s more, they had a great blend of Lauren’s upbeat enthusiasm and excitement and Eliora’s calm focus, a fantastic duo that made me and my bridal party very comfortable and relaxed. I cannot recommend them highly enough, my hair and makeup was everything I had hoped for on my wedding day, and Eliora is also a pro at fixing veils! Thank you both so much!

    Perfect for curly hair!

    I cannot recommend them enough! The trial went great and she really listened to everything I had to say. I requested some adjustments on the actual wedding day, which she did perfectly! Every bit of makeup stayed in place the whole night (and if I'm being honest I didn't take it off before bed and I woke up with it still in place, not a single smudge). And my hair! I was really nervous since I have naturally curly hair and a long history of people not knowing hoe to properly handle it. I told her that I wanted to embrace my natural curls which she was super excited about. The final product was just amazing, I don't think my hair has ever looked that beautiful. But the thing that made me the happiest was how beautiful she made my mom feel. She did her makeup and my mom was nervous since she never wears it, but she was absolutely stunning! I cannot recommend their service enough! :)
