    Beautiful hair and makeup!

    Joy did amazing makeup for myself and my bridal party. Kendall did a great job on hair as well. Both were prompt and professional. They really listened to what we all wanted and took the time to make sure everything was perfect, without running late. I would definitely recommend them.

    Joy and Katie at Beauty by Joy were absolutely incredible. Because of them, I felt like the most beautiful bride. My entire bridal party was so in love with them and could not have look any more gorgeous. Our makeup lasted the entire day - from 8 am until midnight. I'm so glad that I chose to work with them!

    Joy was a lifesaver! She was super professional and great with what makeup she chose. She did my bridal makeup and then also for my mom and teenage daughter. We all felt so beautiful for the big day! Joy came on location to my home! I included pics of her setup with us! So pleased!!!!

    Joy is AMAZING!!! She was so accommodating, professional, fun and is absolutely the best makeup artist I have ever had!! She took her time during my trial to make sure my wedding day was a breeze as it was! She made me feel absolutely perfect on my wedding day!

    Joy was fabulous to work with! She was super accommodating (we had a lot of girls needing to get ready in a tiny cabin) and her work was stunning. I look back on my photos and can't believe it's actually me!! My makeup was absolutely perfect! She listened to my wants and didn't do anything without checking with me first (I'm a false eye lash newbie!) I would highly recommend her and her team for any time you need to look your absolute best! My bridesmaids and I have been joking that we need an event as an excuse to hire her again! I cannot rave about her enough :)

    Joy was really great to work with! She's extremely talented and was very accommodating. She took ample time during my trial to make sure I had a look I loved for my wedding day. My makeup lasted the entire day and looked gorgeous in photos. Thank you for everything, Joy!

    I was so touched by how kind and caring Joy was toward each girl in the bridal party and then when it came time for her to do her magic on me, the mother of the bride, she was the BEST!!

    Joy was fabulous!! She was so accomadating. She drove such a distant to come do my makeup as the bride when she already had another wedding later in the day booked! When I went for the trial, Her shop was the cutest, clean, most welcoming place. She was super helpful and my makeup looked beautiful! I would recommend Joy to everyone!

    Joy was wonderful to work with. I reached out to her after I had a trial with someone else and the makeup made me look like someone completely different. She listened to what I liked and she did amazing work not only on me but my mother and mother-in-law. I would recommend joy to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their big day.

    Joy was amazing! She made me feel very comfortable. She really listened to me and gave advice off of my suggestions which was very important to me. She was very professional, on time and so sweet. My sister is getting married next year and we are using Joy again because everyone was so happy with the results! I highly recommend using her for the most important day of your life!

    Joy was amazing! I typically NEVER wear make up besides foundation on a day to day basis so I was a little worried about not looking "natural" for my wedding day. Boy oh boy did she hit it dead on! My bridesmaids were also so impressed with her work. I couldn't of been happier with the way my makeup looked! Joy deserves more than 5 stars! HIGHLY recommended.

    Thank you so much for the sweet comments, Ashley! I think our 'natural glam' bridal look was a perfect fit for you! Congrats and wishing you many years of happiness! :)

    Joy helped me feel more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. The airbrush makeup felt great on my skin for the whole day and night. I do not normally where very much makeup and I was very comfortable. Joy is probably the vendor my bridesmaids have complimented the most. My mom, my four bridesmaids, and I all loved our makeup.

    Joy and her team did an amazing job for my wedding. She was very easy to get in touch with and was very flexible the day of the wedding. She did an amazing job with all of my ladies and we all loved the lashes!! She worked very well with my hair stylist the day of the wedding to coordinate and have flexibility to make the day run smoothly. She Provided me with a schedule prior to the day also which made things go a lot smoother. I would recommend Joy's services to everyone, it was such a pleasure working with her and her team of talented ladies!

    Joy was amazing!! She was fun, easy to work with and our makeup turned out perfectly!! It looked beautiful all night. She understood what I was looking for and it was better than I imagined. All of my bridesmaids and the Moms looked flawless, as well! I highly recommend hiring Joy for your big day!

    Joy and Mara bent over backwards to help me over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend when I had a cancellation before my wedding. They were quick to respond to my email and made it possible to have a last minute makeup trial for my rehearsal dinner and then makeup on site at my wedding. I can't thank them enough for their kindness and flexibility during a stressful time!!!

    Bottom line, Joy made me feel flawless on my wedding day. It really felt like I was getting advice from a great girlfriend about what did / did not look good on me. I had a number of girlfriends getting married at the same time as me and, I can say with complete confidence, Joy was the most responsive, flexible, patient makeup artist I could have worked with in the Pittsburgh area. From the trial to the morning of my wedding, Joy kept me in the loop and was incredibly organized and professional with scheduling and listening to what I wanted. I've had my makeup professionally done in the past and have ALWAYS ended up going back to fix something on my own. For myself and my four bridesmaids, not a single one of us wanted to touch anything on our faces because we felt so beautiful. Joy takes the time to talk through her process with you to make sure that she was understanding what we wanted and how we felt about the looks.

    I truly felt like the best version of myself that day and would HIGHLY recommend Joy to any bride in the Pittsburgh area.

    Joy was absolutely amazing and such a pleasure to work with! She is so talented and was truly able to bring my bridal vision to life. Joy was incredibly accommodating and traveled to the apartment where my bridesmaids and I were getting ready -- she adapted to the guest bedroom and made it feel like a real make-up studio! Her work is absolutely flawless and worth every penny! I would highly recommend Joy for any wedding!

    Joy travelled to Deep Creek MD so myself and my bridesmaids could get ready in our hotel and it could not have been an easier process! She did such a great job with everyone's makeup and we got many compliments. I would highly recommend her to anyone and the best part is that the makeup stayed perfect all day and night even through endless dancing!

    Finding a make-up artist for my Aug. 9, 2015 wedding was a difficult task. I didn't have a bridal party, had another vendor doing hair and picked a Sunday for our date. My decisions ended up eliminating so many options, but Joy was completely flexible and more than willing to work with my small party. She came highly recommended and did a fantastic job! She listened to everyone's wants and needs - my mother and mother-in-law also had their make-up done- while adding her own special touches. We all looked flawless! I can't thank her enough !
