We had a team of 5 from Adesso Moda come up to Lenox, MA for our wedding - they were the best glam squad EVER. Tracey and Francine ran the show with awesome work from Debi, Angel and Felicia. They got there early to set up, brought little goodie bags for everyone getting makeup so mascara wasn't being shared and everyone left with their own mini mascara. They had the schedule down and went to work immediately. I had 10 bridesmaids get their hair done, my mother, my mother-in-law, our 4 grandmothers and my aunt- and of course I got my hair and makeup done too! Then two of the stylists went to help out the men and they all looked amazing. My husband, brother, brother-in-law and father all got hair cuts right then and there and the other groomsmen were helped with styling.Sent on 09/27/2013
The team planned to stay until after the ceremony to take off my veil and change my hair, however I got sick after the ceremony and they stayed for hours longer than planned. Though I had to lay on a couch with my eyes closed sick they came in and fixed my hair right there and even touched up my makeup even though it wasn't the ideal lighting or area to do so. They were so flexible and made everyone happy - especially me.

Tracey is awesome. If you want the starched curl updo, SHE IS NOT THE ONE FOR YOU. If you instead want to look like yourself, only better--and a little edgy, go to her! She does a fabulous job. She made me look great--and not the typical Barbie bride! Love her!!Sent on 11/10/2008

I met with two salons to pick a hair/makeup vendor for our day. The one I didn't pick spent about 10 minutes with me discussing options and I left. Fran at Adesso talked with me for a good hour, playing with my hair and makeup at the first consultation! Their prices are super reasonable - $250 including the trial! (hair AND makeup). Estimates online were more near $400.Sent on 09/26/2016
Prior to the wedding day, I went to Fran for my trial which I had to split into two days (one for hair and one for makeup) because she colored my hair and amazing dark red. I felt like a mermaid! She's open to changes in hair and makeup and doesn't yell at you when you change or didn't like what you liked last time.
Day of the wedding, everything went fairly smoothly. 5 of us were getting hair and makeup so we moved around between Fran and 2 other stylists. Everyone came out gorgeous! They set up a little table for us beforehand to set up our bagels + mimosas. They let my other bridesmaid do her own hair/makeup upstairs. Fran can seem a little frazzled at times, but it doesn't affect the quality of her work. I would say she definitely went above and beyond as far as taking care of my hair color, eyebrows, style, etc before the wedding. (She had to fix my color the week of the wedding and didn't charge me the second visit which I was SO grateful for).
I was very happy with my hair + makeup the day of the wedding and I'd definitely recommend Fran and the salon for others' weddings. Especially to help with your budget!
(For reference, on top of the $250 for the hair+makeup+trial for both, I did pay $90 for hair color, $0 for eyebrow wax, $75 for color touch up, $0 for follow up to fix the color - but she's really good at color! and Mark is great at blowouts).
