Ana is not only a true artist when it comes to hair and make up she is an outstanding person and brings a fun, good spirited vibe with her wherever she goes. I fell in love with her and her work during my trial run and could not wait to hang out with her again on my wedding day. We changed the looks from what we practiced on my special day and I felt like the most beautiful bride there ever was! She truly wants to make you happy and feel confident and does so through her attention to detail. I will recommend Ana to anyone and everyone needing a hair and/or makeup artist for the most special events of their lives or just a night out - either way you will be impressed!

I have very fine, very thin hair and Ana made me feel absolutely stunning on my big day. Not only did she do a phenomenal job on my hair and makeup, but she was able to finish 4 bridemaids, two moms, and a grandma, all ahead of schedule. She helped make my morning of fun and relaxing. I recommend her to ANYONE who wants to feel beautiful on their special day.

Ana was absolutely amazing. She and her assistant did hair and makeup for myself, all 6 of my bridesmaids, and the 2 mothers. She did an amazing job at my hair and makeup trial, and copied it on my wedding day. I was very concerned with traffic from a marathon the morning of my wedding, but she arrived early and she was set up in no time. She was able to do any hairstyle my girls gave her. The hair and makeup lasted all day, and I felt gorgeous!! My girls and I had a great time with her wedding morning! I would absolutely recommend her!!

Wow, wow, WOW! So happy with my hair and makeup! Ana traveled from Orlando to St. Pete to do my hair and make-up for the wedding, along with my girls and my mom. She was wonderful! She first did a trial run about a month and a half before the wedding. It was a great time to talk about my vision and try some make-up colors before the day-of. I'm so glad we did the trial. It gave me an opportunity to make sure she was on the same page as me. And she was. Day of the wedding she was wonderful. She ended up doing the hair and makeup for six of us. If there was something someone wanted to change she was right on top of it. Ana's personality is fun and vibrant. I'm so happy she was part of my wedding. My curls held for three days and could have gone four, but was time to wash it out. My husband absolutely loved my hair and make-up. It was just enough to be glamorous but still natural looking.

Oh Ana Crane is a talented sweetheart. She made my day unforgettable and went out of her way for my wedding party. I highly recommend her for any occasion.

You should absolutely book Ana for you wedding day. She was amazing and I am so happy I had her there for my big day. She went back and forth with me through e-mail for months to plan the timeline for my day, calmed all my nerves during the planning process, and made the getting ready part of the day go perfectly. She knew exactly what she was doing and how to keep us on time for the ceremony. She did 12 girls make up from 8-2pm, and even finished before time was up so she could touch everyone up. She did my make-up perfectly even without a trial and I couldn't have been happier. She is the best out there!
Catherine · Married on 06/04/2016
Ana is AMAZING! Not only is she extremely talented, she is also warm, friendly, and such a pleasure to collaborate with. As a bride, I was unsure of exactly what I wanted my wedding day 'look' to be. Ana was open and accommodating from the beginning, and ultimately executed perfectly the look we decided on together. Ana and her team also did the makeup for my bridesmaids/mothers and they looked absolutely perfect. I could not recommend her services enough!
Katelyn · Married on 03/12/2016
All I can say is wow! She was so nice and made me feel absolutely beautiful! By far the best hair and makeup artist I've ever had. And I'm so happy I found her for my special day. Not only did she make me feel beautiful she also helped my mother in law who had her hair done by someone else and had hated her hair. My mother in law asked Ann what she should do to fix it and Ann volunteered to re-do her hair for extremely cheap. My mother in law was so thankful and loved her new wedding hairdo that Ann did for her. I'm very picky when it comes to how my makeup and hair looks and there was not one thing I didn't like. She was AWESOME! I highly would recommend her and use her again! Thanks Ann

I cannot say enough nice things about Ana! What a treat it was to have her do the hair and makeup for my wedding, seriously. She is ridiculously talented and such a joy to be around. Having her glamming up myself and my 4 best girlfriends before marrying the love of my life was collectively one of my favorite parts of the day. She understood my beauty vision for the day more than I did and made my sweet friends feel more beautiful than they already are. The pictures are incredible! She also included a touch up kit for myself which really came in SO handy and I still use it :)
Thank you thank you thank you Ana!!!
Leslie · Married on 11/07/2015
Ana is a consummate professional. Knowledgeable about what would flatter you best she is happy to lend advice yet completely lets the bride guide the service. Responsive to emails and texts, she seems genuinely excited for your big day. This is especially impressive as she had to travel to Lexington, KY to provide her services. She even did the trial run at my home making it easy on the busy bride. Excellent products used, flawless application, punctual, sweet. Truly a joy to work with. To book anyone else is to not look your very best on your wedding day. She is absolutely the top notch vendor.
Corey · Married on 10/17/2015
I used Ana Crane Studio as my hair and makeup artist when I married this fall. I can honestly say that she was one of the highlights of this amazing experience. I met with Ana months before my wedding and did a trial run based on everything I told her that I envisioned. She absolutely nailed it! She then continued to checked in on my from time to time between the trial run and the wedding to make sure I was doing okay and that we were still on the same page for hair and makeup.
Ana was prompt and ready to go on my big day. She helped calm my nerves and was totally professional, along with her staff. Ana has such a great vision and unrivaled talent that made for the hair and makeup I always dreamed of for my wedding day.
Ana stayed with me the entire day and touched me up throughout a night full of dancing and fun. She was part of the family by the time the weekend concluded. I highly recommend this amazing woman on your perfect day!
Keisha · Married on 09/06/2015
Ana is A-maze-ING! She is an extremely skilled hair and makeup artist, the best. She worked with me on establishing a signature look for me on my wedding day, as well as working with my bridesmaids to make them look fabulous! She has a style that top notch. She is able to look at her canvas and see what needs to happen to tie everyone in together, but still have their own look that works for them. Love her!
Naorin · Married on 06/06/2015
Where do I begin with Ana? If there is one thing we brides look back at on our wedding day that goes by in just a blur, it's the memories we create, and that can be seen through the pictures, videos taken - and of course in all those moments, pictures- who doesn't want to look fabulous as ever without all the doubt & the anxiety. Ana did exactly that - gave me that flawless look as I imagined on all 5 of my looks - yes 5 looks for one huge wedding event- all done so flawlessly. She followed our outline and had our make up and dressing all done exactly the time it needed to be done if not sooner.
She isn't just a make up artist for any one selective group of girls but can mold to any cultural background such as mine, or any type of wedding, any type of event, filled with so much respect and love first and foremost for the bride & her family, honestly for anyone. She understood that my wedding was going to be 3 events and understood what type of looks entailed for each ceremony event and gave me exactly that look. She is never shy from any challenges and even fixed my bridal dress and pinning in such a flawless manner, making sure I felt comfortable and relaxed and most importantly beautiful during every moment of the way (and if I had the slightest doubt she wouldn't stop until I felt amazing).
Ana isn't just your make up artist, she truly becomes your friend, your positive voice (I have never met more of a positive human being :)) ...works so efficiently yet gives you time to take those deep breaths, says exactly the right things and gets you going for your big day. This beautiful woman isn't your average make up artist but an exceptional one. And I have recommended/continue to recommend all my friends from all backgrounds to her, because she will make sure you have amazing memories to look back at and be able to tell yourself, "I truly felt beautiful that day". Ana, thank you for being so amazing. I look forward to seeing all your amazing work always :)
Erin · Married on 09/20/2014
Ana is the best. She is such a professional that when she gets to work, you will like she is done in no time and you look absolutely flawless. When I went for my trial I showed her a picture of how I wanted my hair and I had no idea about my makeup and she just went with her gut and I looked amazing. And then on my wedding day even though she got caught in traffic she still managed to get my hair and makeup done before picture time without even missing a beat. She is so warm and friendly, she talks to you constantly and doesn't let you sit there in silence so your nerves can build up. And at the last minute my mother and mother in law decided they want their hair and makeup done to and Ana managed to somehow come up with a whole team to bring with her with only a days notice so that everyone would be looking their best on time. And when my sister came from the salon and wasn't pleased with her hair they over heard her and volunteered to fix her hair too. So nice! Trust me you will not be let down by Ana Crane and Applied Cosmetics.
Nicole · Married on 08/30/2014
Ana was great! She even provided the extra service of helping to calm me down when I realized it would be raining during our outdoor wedding reception and that we needed to change plans at the very last minute. She helped me find a vintage hairstyle that I loved and makeup that complemented it!
Brennan · Married on 08/30/2014
Ana was the most amazing person to work with. She always made me feel so comfortable and like I was the only bride she had. Ana was always there and willing to talk with me about my concerns and anxietys over timing, services, and pricing, She was always so professional and was always punctual (or she was early!). Punctuality is a trait that is lost on some but not with her. For someone like myself that gets nervous about timelines it was such a relief to be able to have full confidence that she was gonna be where she said at the time agreed upon. Ana crane is truly an artist. Your wedding day is one of those times where you want to and need to feel/be as stunning as possible. I felt absolutely flawless on my big day and I owe that all to Ana and her extensive talents. Everyone should try and book for an event at some time in their life just so they can experience what a truly amazing person she is. And, my makeup stayed on through hours of sweating on dance floor and through all the tears! That is really saying something!

On your wedding day, you often find yourself in a position of surrounding yourself with your closest family but also many people who you may have only met once before if ever. This can be a huge unknown- especially when it is a photographer or a makeup artist/hair stylist, who are such an important part of the day. Ad an out-of-town bride, I literally met Ana two days before my wedding and did not have a clue as to how I wanted my hair or makeup styled. She was beyond wonderful. We instantly connected and she made me feel at ease with her warm personality and sweetness. Not only is she a great person and someone I was happy to share my day with- the hair AND makeup were flawless. Her team did the makeup/hair for my very particular bridesmaids and several of them commented it was the best makeup they have had for a wedding. She was so creative with my updo, perfectly capturing and helping me create the look and feel of my dress. She was extremely competent and understanding when I wanted to tweak the look a little. My skin was glowing and several people commented in particular on that. I wore a red lip, which can be tough to pull off, but she executed it with just the right amount of accompanying makeup. I can't gush about her enough. If you are lucky enough to book her, then you won't be disappointed.
Ellen · Married on 04/26/2014
I cannot say enough good things about working with Ana on my wedding day. She certainly lived up to her reputation - literally everyone I asked hair and makeup recommendations for gave me her name! Ana was very professional and I could tell that she was listening to me from the beginning, which is so important and hard to find from a stylist. And during the times when I was indecisive or couldn't properly communicate what I wanted, she offered suggestions and kept trying new things until we got it right. She executed my vision PERFECTLY, which is really saying a lot because I am sensitive about my (finer) hair and am rarely totally happy with it. Ana gave me the full volume that I wanted and the prettiest curls I have ever had. She made me feel glamorous and special, yet still kept true to my look and personal style, which is exactly what I wanted. She also fixed my wonky eyelash extensions that stayed put through tons of tears and dancing, and was also open to using my own makeup, which I was really happy about. So many people told me that I was a "glowing bride" and I certainly have Ana to thank for that!

I would recommend Ana Crane to anyone as she was a huge part of making my wedding day amazing. She makes you feel the way you always dreamed you would feel on your wedding day. I looked beautiful and was comfortable in my own skin! The look Ana gave me was just what I wanted - I looked like myself but gorgeous and not over the top. She listens to you and adjusts to whatever comments or worries you may have. Ana is a pleasure to get to know and is truly an artist. My hair and makeup looked fantastic the entire day, and I've received so many compliments on both from the people who joined us that day and from those who have seen our wedding pictures.
Keeley · Married on 09/28/2013
I cannot write enough good things about Ana. She is absolutely wonderful, talented, sweet and completely flexible. She truly wants you to look your best on your wedding day and will make any adjustments or changes that you ask in order to make that happen. I live in NYC and wish she would move here so I could use her for events, galas, parties, etc. She really is the best!

Ana was great! She was friendly, flexible, and professional. My hair looked amazing all night!
Amy · Married on 06/22/2013
Ana was wonderful. After I booked her, several of my other vendors commented "oh, she does such great work, you will be so happy". I wasn't disappointed. I was a little nervous for my trial but after she worked her magic, I wasn't nervous at all on my wedding day. She recreated the look exactly on my wedding day and I loved it! Her team of makeup artists and hairstylists that did my bridesmaids' hair and makeup also did a phenomenal job. My face and lashes and hair stayed during all my my crazy dancing during the reception and my tears during the speeches. Thanks again Ana!
Elizabeth · Married on 06/15/2013
Ana Crane came highly recommended to me by several people in Lexington, so I was thrilled she was available for my wedding date. I fully understood how skilled Ana was during the trial run of my hair and make-up. She truly listened to what I wanted and then proceeded to work her magic to create the perfect look for me. In addition to Ana’s talent and incredible amount of experience, she has a calming nature about her that any bride can appreciate in the midst of such an important day. I have never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day and I have Ana Crane to thank!
Conni · Married on 06/08/2013
Ana did a beautiful job of my daughter's hair and makeup for her wedding and for all photo shoots prior to the wedding as well! She is sweet, friendly, and fun! My daughter's hair and makeup looked fresh for the entire day and night. We felt so blessed to have her for her wedding since she books up pretty early on. Book her if you possibly can!
