The best hair/makeup
Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional and prompt with all of her communication. She was so cheerful and excited to make my dream wedding look come true. My entire wedding party and family could not have been more blown away with her services. I loved everything about my look, and I have never in my life liked when another person has done my makeup, and I LOVED her work. A few incredible stand out points that blew me away beyond my already high expectations of her that I had from reading other reviews: 1) my mother has a very difficult allergy to deal with. It is a preservative in almost all hair and makeup products. Amy was not phased by this. She immediately said it was no problem, requested further detail of the allergy and continued on to complete incredibly detailed research on my mother’s allergen, compiled a list of products that would work for my mom’s skin and hair type that were allergen free. She sent the list of products to me with the ingredient lists included. She even thought of further tactics to help protect my mom against the airborne allergen in regards to timing of the other appointments in the day and location of the services. Her care and thoughtfulness was incredibly appreciated. It made me and my family feel very cared for with something that is very difficult to deal with. 2) She had no issues driving in the winter to Granby CO. She made arrangements to make sure she was to the venue early and that unpredictable winter weather would not be an issue. (February in the mountains in Colorado) 3) She was very accommodating day of. When the schedule was shifting and bridesmaids were not in their places etc, she rearranged with ease, keeping stress low and a positive attitude. Her cheerfulness and positivity was amazing and her calming attitude was just the vibe needed on my special day. Everyone was so thrilled with their final looks (pictured). With ease she was able to integrate the wishes of all of my bridal party, making each of their looks customized to enhance their beauty, yet keeping the overall look cohesive and natural did up-does and down hairstyles and a blowout for MOB. I could not recommend her highly enough. 4) She was able to work with met to get a hairstyle that would look good with a hat on for my ceremony and then with no fixing would look stunning after the hat was removed for the dinner and reception. Ie a hat hair resistant wedding hairstyle. WHAT?! But she nailed it. Pic of hair during cake cutting after hat and eating, 100s of hugs and dancing for reference of intact curls and lots of volume with ZERO primping after hat removal. Her pricing is incredibly fair for her spectacular work and professionalism. She was an integral part to making my wedding perfect. And my curls looked PERFECT after hours and hours of dancing, sweating, and sleeping on them. Many comments on my stunning and perfect hair during a family brunch the next morning which I would have never imagined possible.Sent on 04/09/2020

Amazing hair and makeup artist
Amy was amazing to work with. First, she took all the proper precautions for doing hair and makeup during COVID-19. I sent her ideas, and she nailed my vision. Looking like the best version of myself without looking like a different person on my wedding day was important to me, and she captured that perfectly. She was professional while also being so personal. I love that she takes the time to make each look personal for every bride.Sent on 07/20/2020

Awesome experience All-around
Amy was awesome! She came to our hotel to do my hair and makeup for our elopement. We had a lot of fun chatting with her and I loved the way my hair and makeup turned out. She was awesome about sticking to my style and incorporating the flowers that meant so much to me. Amy helped make the day absolutely perfect! It was nice to find someone willing to do the hair and makeup for just one person! VERY highly recommended!Sent on 06/27/2019

Amy is amazing!
I loved working with Amy for my wedding day styling and highly recommend her. Amy is super talented with both hair and makeup - I felt like the best version of myself! I have really curly hair and Amy worked my curls into a half up-do with a head piece that totally emphasized my natural curls, exactly what I wanted. My makeup was natural feeling and looking and stayed on all night long. The two additional stylists that came with Amy were very talented as well, the bridal party & mom's loved their hair and makeup. Above all, Amy is an absolute joy to be around and she made wedding day styling fun and enjoyable!Sent on 05/27/2019

Elopement wedding Hair/makeup
Amy did an amazing job with hair and makeup. She was calm, friendly and talented. She color matched everything and put natural looking lashes on too. I brought color matched hair extensions and she fixed my hair in a natural wave curl (hair down) style. Since we had an elopement, we didn't have time to ‘practice’ but she did great by talking with me beforehand and discussing examples.Sent on 11/16/2019

I received so many compliments on my hair
I can’t say enough great things about Amy. I’m so thankful I found her to do my wedding hair and makeup. I have celiac disease and finding someone to do my makeup safely to avoid cross contamination proved to be an extremely difficult task. After my first email with Amy, I knew she was the one. I loved her work and truly hoped she could accommodate my special request. She reassured me from our first email exchange and even during the makeup application she was careful to make sure I stayed safe. Also, my hair and make up looked AMAZING. She did awesome making sure I felt like myself, but also making sure I looked beautiful on my wedding. I highly recommend!Sent on 12/07/2019

Amy is the one to go to!
I chose Amy because I saw she did Asian girls' makeup before and it is tricky and different from other styles. It's a destination wedding and I couldn't add a trial in my schedule. But Amy communicated with me very effectively on the day of. I am very happy with the result. The hair was stunning, the makeup was just what I pictured. I am just so glad I made the right choice. Thank you, Amy!Sent on 09/12/2019

Gorgeous hair & makeup, and so much fun! Can't recommend Amy enough!
I'm so glad I chose Amy to do my hair and makeup for my wedding!! She did an amazing job, and the additional stylists she brought in to work with the wedding party were complete pros. I was very happy with the end result, as were all of my girls - everyone looked great!Sent on 09/26/2019
I'm very particular about both my hair and my makeup. It's pretty hard for me to cede control to stylists, but my trial run with Amy made me feel completely at ease. I loved her emphasis on high-quality skincare, and I could tell that her makeup products are top notch. She achieved the ideal "my natural look, but better" for both my hair and my makeup (i.e., exactly what I wanted and asked for!). After the trial run, I followed up with some feedback on how the makeup held up on my oily skin, and she made adjustments so that everything on "the day" was perfect and stayed put until the very end. On my wedding day I was relaxed and knew I was in great hands!
Throughout the process, Amy was responsive to my emails and super punctual, which I really appreciated (especially in the thick of wedding planning madness).
It was also especially important to me to find someone who has experience working with all types of skin tones and hair textures, since I had a diverse wedding party. I loved that Amy knows how to do an amazing job with all types of hair and skin tones, and she made sure that all of her additional stylists were up to the job as well.
On top of all of that, Amy is just lovely and so fun to hang out with - we had a great time getting ready!! I can't recommend her enough.

Like an extension of our bridal party— and most classy hair and makeup
Amy was amazing. She’s so thoughtful in figuring out hair and makeup that are YOU, and your personality. She’s attentive, and realistic. I love her!Sent on 10/10/2019

Fantastic Hair and Makeup Artist: talented, friendly, easy to work with
Amy was amazing to work with it. From doing hair and make-up for my boudoir shoot to my trail to my wedding day, she captured what I was looking for and was responsive to feedback. I adored my wedding day look and cannot wait until we get our photos back so I can show it off more (I'll post the non-pro photos I have) In addition to myself, she did hair for all the women in our wedding party and hair+makeup for both of our mom's. Everyone was impressed, looked beautiful, and had a great time. Would 100000% reccomend Amy for any Bride.
My hair and makeup help up GREAT through the entire day, including a choreographed first dance and a long night on the dance floor.Sent on 07/17/2019

Everything was flawless
I really can’t sing enough praise about Amy. I was nervous about letting someone else take care of my makeup and hair - I’m very particular and wasn’t sure someone else could make me look the way I wanted. The first hair/makeup run was great and I HIGHLY recommend doing a trial. My hair did not want to cooperate and ended up looking like a big poof ball - which is great, because this helped Amy figure out what we needed to do on the day of the wedding to give it some volume without too much ‘poof’. My makeup was lovely but, even though I made suggestions and told her what I did/didn’t like as we were going along, it just didn’t feel like me. The problem was mostly that I had picked a bold color choice that just didn’t fit me very well. So I booked a second makeup trial so that I could try something else - that time we were really able to nail what looked good and what to do for the wedding! All the while, Amy was very pleasant and open to changes/suggestions. Trust me, she can’t read your mind, so if something doesn’t look right or you want to do something yourself (I did my own eyebrows), say something! She’s there to make you look great and isn’t upset if you want something different or want to do something yourself.
The day of the wedding went very smoothly except I kept asking for contouring and it didn’t look right. Turns out, I actually wanted “bronzing” - ladies, if you’re like me, and not a makeup expert, look up the terminology! It’ll save you some frustration. In the end, we figured it out and my makeup came out amazing; she was a champ at handling me being so particular. My hair was gorgeous. And my mom and all of my bridesmaids were equally impressed by Amy and her assistant. Some of their thoughts:
“The makeup artists were pretty respectful of those of us that didn't want super heavy makeup. And they handled any nervousness or particularliness from the Bride very well. :) They were very comfortable to work with.”
“I loved my hair and make-up and she did my hair exactly the way I envisioned it!! The make-up was really nice and not too much.”
In summary, Amy is amazing at listening to what you want and bringing it to life! I’d hire her again in an instant. She made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease, and I looked absolutely beautiful for our wedding!Sent on 07/01/2019

You guys. I cannot say enough great things about Amy. She was timely, considerate, fun, kind, and she was dang good. The entire process was so professional. I am really picky about my hair and make up, I don't want something over the top but I also want something that is more than an every day look. I felt like she listened to every thing I wanted (she schedules a phone call and looks at your pinterest boards) and implemented it perfectly. It was truly the most beautiful I have ever felt and my now husband (!!!!) thought it was the most beautiful I had ever looked. I can't say enough great things. Oh! And this was the third wedding we had to reschedule (covid) and she made herself available even though her wedding was right around the corner. I feel blessed to have met her and beyond thankful for her services!Sent on 08/03/2020

Reese · Married on 04/12/2019
Working with Amy was the best decision I could’ve made for my wedding. She was very prompt with all of her correspondence with me and she even shared extra tips and tricks to have great skin and hair for the wedding day. When the salon she had booked for our trial was double booked, she was so apologetic and came to my house free of charge. On the wedding day, Amy and her assistant Torrey made me, my mothers, and my mother in law so comfortable and so gorgeous. I changed up the makeup look I wanted last minute, but Amy was so flexible and gave me my exactly hair and makeup vision. If you’re having a wedding, definitely go with Amy because you won’t regret it!Sent on 04/15/2019
Amy Merritt Hair & Makeup's reply:Reese, thank you so much! Torrey and I had a blast laughing with you and all the moms last week! You looked like a dream

Amy did a phenomenal job in so many ways!! She arrived early, embraced & thrived in the wedding day chaos, she was very professional but so SO personable, listened to all of our different requests, took her time & cared about all of our hair/makeup but still got everybody done in a timely manner. I could not recommend her enough!Sent on 06/21/2019

Worth all the money in the world!
When I began planning my wedding, I was just going to have my friend who does hair style my hair and make up for the wedding day. After a few months of deliberation, I decided it would be smarter to go with somebody who does wedding hair and make up professionally.Sent on 04/01/2019
I reached out to several people in the industry, and I was completely turned off by so many. When I spoke to Amy, though, I knew this girl knew her stuff! She was also so friendly and helpful with any and all of my questions.
She reached out to me several times before the wedding just to check in and make sure everything was still going according to plan.
The day of, her and her team were there bright and early, and they got straight to work! It was so fun and refreshing to spend the morning of my wedding day with this group of girls. Amy is so funny and so down to earth. She put all of my nerves at ease and was so kind when she was helping make the final decisions of my hair and make up.
I decided to forgo the hair/makeup trial as I did not want to drive to Boulder before the wedding. Although I did not do the trial, the way my hair and make up was done was PERFECT. I only showed Amy a photo of what I wanted and she nailed it. I got so many compliments on both my hair and make up, as did my bridesmaids and my mother and the mother of the groom.
All of us girls are still talking about what a great job they did, and how fun it was spending the morning together.
If I ever were to need hair/make up services I would go with Amy a million times over.
Amy Merritt Hair & Makeup's reply:Ichiko!! You were SUCH a joy to work with, and that glam pony was one for the books! I'd be more than happy to do your hair and makeup a million times over
Sara Baker · Married on 10/08/2018
You need Amy to work her magic on your hair and makeup! She did a brilliant job on both.
I don’t wear a lot of makeup and I’ve had many artist in the past still apply heavy makeup after i tell them this. Amy did such a perfect job listening to my wants and bringing it to life better than anyone I’ve worked with!
And the hair... dreamy! I chose to add the extension rental at the last minute, and it was the best decision! It gave me all the volume I was looking for and more. It also snowed pretty good on our wedding day and my hair held up amazing well and even looked great after being all wet from snow!
Basically Amy added so much magic to my day and you need her for yours... like now!
Added bonus, she is so easy to talk to and our conversations helped keep my mind off the nerves. I felt like I had known her for yeare!Sent on 10/29/2018

Amy was amazing! Not only did she do a super job of the hair and makeup, but she makes you feel comfortable like you've known her forever! She came right to the house we stayed in which was so convenient on an important day when you have so much going on. The best part was after she was all done, she took extra time to stay and hang out while we got ready and took pics of my husband seeing me in my dress for the first time (we eloped...only the two of us...so we drove to our ceremony site together)....so that was a great moment captured, too! I highly recommend Amy!Sent on 09/24/2018

Genevieve · Married on 09/15/2018
Amy and her additional artist, Torrey, did such an incredible job on our hair & makeup! Everyone felt comfortable showing their inspiration photos and both artists did a great job executing our visions - or if they thought a certain style may work a bit better, they encouraged us to try it out.
My hair and makeup held up all day (and night) - and I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out! Beyond her professionalism, Amy is just a joy to be around - she fit in great with the entire group of girls and we had a great time. I would highly recommend Amy for your wedding day! You won't be disappointed :-)Sent on 09/20/2018

Isabelle · Married on 08/25/2018
Amy and her team were AMAZING to work with!!! From my trial to the day of I felt so taken care of and comfortable with Amy's level of expertise and intuition. She custom makes the foundation so it matches your complexion exactly and looks flawless in person and in pictures. My favorite part about working with Amy is her extension rental program. As a girl with thin short hair I have always had extreme insta-envy when I see all of those full buns and braids, but with Amy's extensions she was able to create the mountain mermaid braid of my dreams! Amy is the best!!!!!Sent on 09/05/2018

Amy was amazing! I cannot say enough great things about her. She was extremely accommodating, prompt, responsive and flexible. Her personality is fun and makes you feel like you've been friends for years. She really listens and cares about what you want and will go out of her way to make sure you are happy.Sent on 08/23/2018
To give you an idea of her quality of hair and her flexibility:
I had a mountain sunrise wedding, Amy came to our house at 2:15am to do our hair.
Once our hair was looking perfect, my now wife and I hiked up/down a mildly windy mountain for 1.5 miles. We were outside in the mountains until 12pm and we didn't need any hair adjustments at all.
Overall, we had the best experience with Amy and would hire her in an instance again.
Amy Merritt Hair & Makeup's reply:You ladies were AWESOME. If I had to spend the wee hours of the morning with anyone, I'm glad it was you! Shoot me a note if you end up in the Raleigh area - I'll grab a drink with ya when I go visit my parents!

I was so glad to have Amy Merritt on my wedding day. She's fun, listened to my requests, and is a very talented hair and makeup artist. My wedding day was hot (in the low 90's) with the sun beating down on us. My makeup didn't budge, even when I started to tear up. The ribbon she wove through my hair turned out just the way I wanted it, even though she said she had never done something like this before. Thanks Amy for making me feel beautiful!Sent on 08/05/2018
