Barbara and Norma were the best hair and makeup artists I've ever worked with. As a half-Korean half-Caucasian person I've experienced my fair share of professional makeup artists who don't know how to put makeup on Asian eyes, to disastrous, clown-like results. I also barely wear makeup so I like an all-natural look, which is something that seems to be lost on many makeup artists. Barbara and her fantastic team are used to working with brides and bridal parties of all sorts of ethnic backgrounds and I had complete confidence they'd make me, my three bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law beautiful for two ceremonies in one day. All of us looked flawless, gorgeous, and natural, and we couldn't have been happier with the results.
Our sincere thanks, Margaret, for such a wonderful review of our makeup & hair styling for your Charlottesville wedding celebration! You & your ladies were so much fun to work with and everyone looked truly amazing! Can't wait to see pics of your fabulous wedding!! We appreciate you taking the time to write us a review and wish you much happiness in launching life as husband & wife ~
I got married on July 22, 2018. When I first met Barbara, she was so easy-going, warm and friendly. My first makeup trial with a different company didn't go well at all, so I was happy when Barbara took her time during the makeup trial to understand what I wanted and then delivered great results. A few weeks before my wedding, I got really tan by accident and was nervous this would make things difficult as she would have to time extra time to match my new shade of makeup. Barbara was very reassuring and on my wedding day she did an excellent job with not only adjusting my makeup but doing all my friends' makeup really well. She was very talented at making us look like a more enhanced version of ourselves but still natural looking! Thanks, Barbara. It was a joy to work with you!
Thank you, Jenny! You were an amazing bride to work with ~ trusting that we could work together to create a bridal look that was beautiful and felt comfortable for you on your wedding day. Can't wait to see your gallery of photos. I had so much fun getting you and your wonderful bridesmaids ready for the Big Day! I truly appreciate you taking time to write so many kind words on our services here on Wedding Wire and on the Knot. Blessings ~ Barbara
Had the most wonderful experience working with Barbara and her team! Barbara was professional and most friendly! Everyone, including myself, loved the way they looked and felt for our wedding! I would not hesitate to book Bridal Artistry again!
Thank you, Hannah! It was a delight working with you. Stephanie, Norma & I enjoyed getting everyone ready at your lovely home and, despite the rainy day, you were a radiant bride! Wishing you a happy marriage with many sunny days ahead!!
Norma is so amazing!! I had the pleasure of having Norma prep my girls and I for my weeding on June 2nd . I felt so beautiful on my wedding day thanks to Norma, she was able to create the look that I wanted, which held for the entirely of my ceremony AND reception.
Thank you so much for the great review of Norma's services! We so appreciate you taking the time to let others know how your bridal look added to the beauty of your wedding day! All best wishes!!
I worked with Jacinda and Nora, and they were wonderful! I was very comfortable with them during the hair/make-up trial, and it was even better on the day of the wedding. They were also able to do hair & make-up for my mother and bridesmaids, and everything was beautiful. Additionally, they are very easy and fun to work with. Thank you Jacinda and Nora!!
We agree, Nora & Jacinda are wonderful to work with and we are so glad you took the time to write them a great review! We can't wait to see pics of your wedding day, Danielle, so hoping you will share the gallery when it's available. Many blessings to you both on your marriage!!
Nanor and Mandy were wonderful to work with on my wedding day. In the pre-planning, they worked with what visions I had I in my mind and were able to bring them to life beautifully. On the day of, both were prompt to the hotel and efficient working with my bridal party. I highly recommend this vendor.
Thanks so much, Jennifer, for taking the time to write this great review of Mandy & Nora (Nanor)'s collaboration on your hair & makeup services for your May wedding! You truly looked amazing and we are so glad that we could be a part of making your bridal vision come true. Much happiness ~
I'm veryyyy happy that I chose Bridal Artistry to do my wedding day hair and makeup. When I met Jacinda and Laura at the trial, they were both so nice and allowed me to try different styles I wanted. They were able to recreate my look perfectly the day of and they also did a fantastic job with my bridesmaids hair and makeup. They all loved it and I got the most amazing compliments from my guests. It was all so perfect, Jacinda and Laura you're amazing and so talented!
Thank you so much, Melanie! I agree Jacinda and Laura do amazing work and we all appreciate your warm words of praise. So glad they were able to add the right beautiful touch to your special day! Congratulations to you newlyweds!!
As a company, Bridal Artistry was a pleasure to work with--quick to respond, friendly, and flexible when I had to shift my start time for getting ready a few hours earlier. Mandy did my hair and makeup, and she did beautiful work. Hair and makeup stood up against the wind during outdoor photos and the sweat (err..."glow") from dancing all night. I also hired Mandy to make custom hair extensions, and they matched my hair perfectly.
It was a pleasure to work with you, Cecily! We know sometimes wedding day timing can change last minute despite all the prior planning, and we want to be as flexible as we possibly can. So glad our team pulled together to make your wedding day prep time seamless! Mandy does beautiful work and we appreciate your kind words. It means a lot to Mandy & to Bridal Artistry!!
All the best to you ~ Barbara
I'm very glad I chose Bridal Artistry for my wedding. I worked specially with Mandy who was fantastic!. She was on time, managed time well, very professional and fun, gave exactly what I wanted, and made me look INCREDIBLE. Mandy was really flexible with the last minute change with my second hair style and stayed extra hours without any extra cost.
I received so many compliments on my makeup and hair style.I would highly recommend Mandy on your wedding day.
What a wonderful review of Mandy's expert beauty skills, Rashi! Thank you so much for writing this review. We are so glad that everything worked out so beautifully - and went so smoothly - on your wedding day. Blessings to you and your husband!!
I first worked with Bridal Artistry as a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding in Nov 2016, and asked for so many of her vendor recommendations as I began planning my own wedding. I had thought Ky did a wonderful job with my hair in my friend’s wedding, and asked for her by name. Barbara was quick and responsive over emails the whole time , and Ky was available for our day. The day of the trial, we also discovered a bit by chance that Laura (makeup) had worked my friend’s wedding, too!
Ky spent a lot of time asking questions during the trial: I had a few photos, and she was able to get me to describe what I liked and didn’t among the different ones. We landed on the perfect look on the first try, and didn’t need a single change. Laura was spot on with what I wanted from makeup: nothing over the top, but clearly better than my every day!
The day of went wonderfully for myself, and five bridesmaids (plus a blowout for my mother in law). Everyone looked stunning and the styles held through the very last dance.
Thank you, Lauren, for taking a precious minute to write a glowing review for our team as we start a New Year!! We really appreciate your kind words for Ky & Laura, who both do fabulous work! Glad to know you had a wonderful December wedding day and the looks lasted through the whole evening.
Wishing you newlyweds a great 2018 and beyond in life's journey.... Blessings~
Mandy and Pia were the best! They were on time, managed their time well, very professional and fun, gave each girl exactly what they wanted, and made us all look INCREDIBLE. Mandy was really flexible with the last minute change in my hair accessory and made it look even better than the trial. I received so many compliments on my makeup and so did the mother of the bride who was particularly worried about being too made up. Love this team!
Wow, Hannah! So glad that Pia & Mandy were on point for yours and everyone else's needs on the wedding day! They are both super talented and great to work with. We would love to see some pics of your Big Day. Thank you for taking a moment to write such a great review for our team. Much appreciated!
I had a great experience working with Pia and Stephanie from Bridal Artistry for hair and makeup. They did an amazing job for me, my bridesmaids, and the mothers – everyone looked fantastic and the hair and makeup lasted well throughout the day. They are both so nice to work with and were very responsive.
Thank you, Julie, for grabbing a minute to write a great review for Stephanie & Pia! They are pretty amazing artists! We always appreciate the feedback and working with wonderful brides like you.... Hope you will send along your gallery of photos when they are available online. Blessings to you newlyweds ~
I had a great experience with Bridal Artistry. I loved my hair and makeup and thought Ky and Laura catered to my vision perfectly!! I also appreciated the ease of adding an additional hairstylist to accommodate our large group. Thank you for making out day great!
Megan ~ We so appreciate your kind words for Laura & Ky's styling skills and professionalism, and thanks for taking the time to write a review! Wishing you a happy holiday season as newlyweds ~
Bridal Artistry did a great job on the hair and makeup for my wedding which included myself, 4 bridesmaids, and 2 mothers. My hair and makeup turned out exactly as we discussed at the trial and it looked amazing! They set up everything at our hotel and they were on time and finished according to schedule. I also liked that everyone got a tube of their lipstick or lipgloss color to reapply throughout the night.
Hi Jennifer ~ We really appreciate you taking the time to review our makeup & hair services for your wedding day! You really looked amazing - so we hope to see some of the pics when they are available... I think our team is unique in giving full-size prestige lip colors to those getting makeup, so glad you appreciated the perk! Our best wishes to your mom, who did so much of the planning, and congratulations to you newlyweds ~
I spent A LOT of time researching bridal hair/makeup before I chose Bridal Artistry and they are by far the best out there.
I'll start by saying that I have A LOT of hair and I'm always apprehensive when it comes to having it styled by someone because I know how overwhelming it can be. When it came time for my hair and makeup trial Norma was able to tame my mane like the pro she is. She had no problem getting my hair to do exactly what I wanted it to do! Sondra was my makeup artist and she was able to create the exact look I was going for and took the time to mix a few different shades of foundation to get my exact shade of incredibly pale!
On the day of the wedding Norma and Sondra both arrived to my house 10 minutes early and got to work immediately. I have hair and make-up done for my brides maids and the mothers of the bride and groom and everything was perfect. I even changed up my hair and make-up slightly from my trials and both artist perfectly captured my vision of what I wanted. Everyone looked gorgeous the entire day and both hair and make-up held up in the July heat!
Thank you, Arion, for writing a really thoughtful review!! Norma & Sondra are truly amazing professionals and, seeing the pics of your wedding day, I know you were an absolutely gorgeous bride! It was such a pleasure to work with you on creating your custom bridal look, and warms our hearts that you loved it so much.
Wishing much happiness to you newlyweds ~ Barbara
I used Barbara and Jacinda from Bridal Artistry for my wedding hair and make-up and they were both wonderful! Barbara was very responsive through the entire process and easy-to work with. We set-up a hair and makeup trial a few weeks before the wedding where I was able to see the entire look and make changes before the actual wedding day which I found to be very helpful.
On the wedding day, Barbara and Jacinda both traveled to our getting ready location and provided hair and make-up for myself, 8 bridesmaids, my mother, and the groom’s mother. Jacinda was able to perfectly replicate the hair designs that the bridal party had brought pictures of and made each girl’s look unique. Barbara listened to what everybody wanted and provided make-up that did not look too heavy but was very pretty and lasted all night long.
Both Barbara and Jacinda were professional, easy-going, and helped to make our getting ready experience even more fun! I would highly recommend using Bridal Artistry for your entire wedding party’s hair and make-up needs.
Thank you, Jessica! It was such fun getting everyone "beautified" for your Big Day! You and your family were so very gracious and a dream to work with. Loved the happy moment when you all were jumping on the backyard trampoline to test your hairstyles... so glad they passed the test! Be sure to send us the pic gallery. Wishing you every joy on your life's journey together ~
I did not have a wedding party so I only needed hair and makeup for myself. There are so many companies out there I had trouble picking one - what tipped the scale for me with Bridal Artistry was that they were willing to commit to a trial date AND my wedding date at the time of booking. I wanted to do my trial on a day that I had to attend a black tie wedding, so I could truly try out the "wear" of the look - and not just go home from the trial all glammed up for my pajamas! I was matched up with Norma who did both hair and makeup. It was beautiful - I felt like a rockstar. Every email was answered promptly and scheduling was a breeze. My wedding day hair of makeup looked exactly like what we'd tried out! The styling was careful and executed beautifully. Norma always made sure I was comfortable and felt like the most beautiful version of myself!
We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of our services! Norma deserves the praises, since she is not only a skillful artist/stylist but a wonderful person who cares very much about her clients feeling comfortable with their looks. Thank you so much for your glowing review! All best wishes to you both ~
I was really pleased with Barbara and Norma from Bridal Artistry for makeup and hair. The ability for me to do a trial on the weekend was nice. They both understood my non-expert description of what I was looking for and were very receptive to feedback as well as gave helpful advice/tips for how to prepare my skin and hair for the big day. They also did hair and makeup for my maid of honor and hair for my mom.
Thank you, Jen! We are so glad you are still so happy with your bridal look on your Memorial Weekend wedding this past Spring! We really loved working with you and your family on the Big Day and wish you newlyweds a great start to your married life together!
I can't recommend Barbara and Bridal Artistry enough! Barbara did the makeup for my sister's wedding and I knew when I got married, I would use Barbara too. So when I got married this May, I gave her a call. My usual style is the more "natural" look and I almost never wear makeup. Barbara was able to beautifully enhance my face, giving me a very clean, and stunning wedding face that was the perfect amount of makeup. I also used Stephanie, from her team, for my hair. She was so fun and helped me to create perfect, natural, wedding hair. Stephanie and Barbara were so skilled, easy to work with, and made me feel so comfortable and beautiful. Thank you so much, Stephanie and Barbara!
Thank you so much for the review, Jessica! You & your sister were special fun for us to "beautify" on the wedding day. What a great family you have! Stephanie & I appreciate your kind words and wish the very best of all to you newlyweds on life's adventure together!! Barbara
I have been in several weddings that used Bridal Artistry for both hair and makeup, so it was a no-brainer to have them do mine when I got married. Barbara was great in coordinating everything. Stephanie did my hair and Pia did my makeup, both are amazing. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my hair, but showed Stephanie some ideas and she ran with it — I ended up loving the hair-style she did for me and the make-up that Pia did looked great as well. My bridesmaids looked gorgeous and were really happy with everything as well — we had two over stylists come and help, as we had about 9 people needing hair and make-up. I highly recommend Barbara's team. They do beautiful work and got everything done with time to spare before pictures.
What an awesome review, Christina! We are so appreciative of your comments. We all work very hard to make sure each bride feels like she is so specially cared for on her Big Day and are so glad to hear that we could do that for you! Much happiness to you newlyweds ~
Barbara and Kai from Bridal Artistry were amazing, both in terms of their bang up job of making me look glamorous and their great personalities! Barbara nailed exactly the glamorous but not over-done make up look I wanted, we had discussed how to change it after the trial and she really listened to my feedback. Kai was great with my up-do, it was beautiful and a little loose but lasted the entire night. Both had good suggestions based on extensive experience and were fun to work with the day of the ceremony. Highly recommended to other brides!
Awww, thank you so much, Christina! We really appreciate you taking the time to review us. Loved working with you and making your bridal vision happen on your special day! All best wishes to you both ~
Barbara and Jacinda were awesome they even got my mother in law into hair and makeup which she was nervous about but these ladies did amazing job for my wedding
Awww, thank you, Stephanie! Both your mom and mother-in-law were great -- ladies who don't really do much makeup but were very willing to do for your wedding day. We did our "natural best" and they felt really comfortable, I see! We had a lot of fun with you and your group. Send us your photo gallery when you can. Congratulations!!
I'm very glad I chose Bridal Artistry for my wedding party. I worked specifically with Ky and Jacinda who were fantastic! I scheduled a trial and they both asked many questions and tried a few looks before I chose a final look. I was concerned about my curly hair that tends to get frizzy when brushed and about my ivory skin color that looks orange with too much bronzer. However, I had nothing to worry about! They listened to my concerns and everything looked AMAZING for the big day. They also had a larger group of girls to work with (6 bridesmaids, 2 moms and the bride) but they stuck closely to the schedule and everyone looked fantastic!! Only positive things to say!
Thanks so much for your thoughtful and much appreciated review of our hair & makeup team for your wedding! Ky & Jacinda are both AMAZING, I agree! So glad you enjoyed their work and we would love to get a peak at the photo gallery, if that's possible ~ All best wishes...
Barbara and Norma did a great job on me and my family members. I normally do not wear a lot of makeup and did not really know what would look good, but Barbara created a look that was very natural but still looked right for the event. Norma also did a great job on my hair. I have very thick wavy hair that she made into a great braided look. My mom also got her hair and makeup done and it looked amazing. My mom sent some pictures of what she wanted for her hair and Norma came up with something that was just what she was looking for. I recommend Barbara and her team very highly. After going to the hair/makeup trial, I was very assured that it would look great on the big day and it did.
We are so grateful that you took the time to write such a detailed review for us! We count it a privilege to be there on your special day to create the look that makes you happy and confident. You and your mom were wonderful and Norma & I loved being a part of your wedding day team!
I had a great experience working with Norma from Bridal Artistry for my hair and makeup. The trial and day of both went smoothly and Norma was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. Booking was easy and the pricing and terms were clear from the beginning. Highly recommend!
Thank you, Katie! Norma is amazingly talented and we are so glad you were a happy and beautiful bride on your Big Day! Would love to see your pics when the photo gallery is available. All best wishes ~
