    Better than our first coice would have been

    Not being local to Dallas we went with our first idea. After they bailed 3 mos from the wedding Elan was recommended. So thankful. Easy to work with, great service, fair pricing, wonderful suggestions.

    I am a huge tomboy who wanted no part of hair & make up but Anita was fantastic! My hair looked exactly the way I wanted it to and my make up was nice but didn’t make me feel like I was wearing a lot!

    Anita was recommended to me by a former bride of hers. I was planning my wedding remotely (live in Seattle) and she was able to accommodate doing the initial consultation over FaceTime. We used my hair and makeup trial for my bridal portraits. She was able to accommodate extra services within one month of my wedding date with ease. On my wedding date, Anita and her three assistants were prompt, cheerful, and professional. They easily finished hair and makeup for all 10 girls as scheduled, including any adjustments and touch ups. All the girls looked beautiful and our hair/makeup lasted through the day (which is saying something in Texas heat in June)!

    Anita and her team are awesome! Anita was a pleasure to work with from the initial call I made to her. She is so sweet and gave me exactly what I wanted…even better than I had pictured it! She made me feel so comfortable at the trial run and didn’t make me feel bad about any changes I wanted to make. You can tell she loves what she does. Anita and one member from her team came on site for the wedding day where she did hair and makeup for my girls and me. Everyone looked STUNNING and was so happy with how they looked. Every bride wants to look perfect on their wedding day, and Anita made that a reality! I booked Elan Makeup Studio on a friend’s recommendation, and I hope you do the same based on my review!

    Anita did such a fabulous job with my wedding! I am a very picky bride that loves makeup. Anita took her time learning how I like my makeup done and changing anything I wanted changed. My lashes were out of this world gorgeous!!

    She also did an unbelievable job on my hair! I have very long thick hair, and Anita whipped all this hair into a perfect little updo full of texture and curls. My husband is still raving about how much he liked my hair, and my wedding pictures are proof of Anita's amazing work!

    Anita and her team are incredible! They did hair and makeup for my daughter’s wedding last month, including the bride, MOB, MOG and 8 bridesmaids, and we could not have been more pleased! They totally exceeded our expectations and all of us felt confident and beautiful for the BIG day!

    The bride-to-be and I did several hair trials prior to the wedding. Each time, Anita was patient and accommodating, despite us not knowing exactly what we wanted. She is very customer-focused and takes her time to fully understand your needs and consistently deliver a style you are completely happy with. She makes the sessions fun and relaxing and the hairstyles were gorgeous!

    Mayra, her lead makeup artist, is also very talented. We absolutely loved the airbrush makeup she recommended. It looked fantastic on all of us and stayed on well even after hours of dancing.

    The Elan team arrived to the venue fully prepared with everything we needed. There were plenty of stylists to get all of us beautified, on time and stress-free.

    I highly recommend Elan for your wedding or any special event you have coming up. My daughter and I will definitely be back!

    Anita was great to work with - from my initial meeting with her, to my trial, to everything the week of, she was responsive and confident. She and her team did hair and makeup at her studio for me and 5 bridesmaids for the rehearsal and then hair at the hotel for me, 6 bridesmaids, my mom, and my fiance's mom for the wedding. I was very happy with how it all turned out. She and her team was on time, efficient, and the pricing is fair. I definitely recommend Anita and will use her again for future events.

    Anita and her team were great! They were recommend to me by my planner at Divine Wedding Details. I had my makeup and hair done for my Engagement Photo Shoot, Wedding Day Trial and Wedding Day. It held up in the blazing Texas heat for outdoor engagement photos and all day for my wedding. Her team came to our hotel the day of the wedding for hair and makeup and all my girls loved them. Also, I was a bit last minute on making the hair and makeup decision and she was extremely responsive and very accommodating. Highly recommend the upgrade to airbrush makeup up!

    I was nervous about finding someone to do my hair and makeup for my wedding and engagement shoot because I am so particular when it comes to those things. Anita met all of my expectations in both the hair and makeup departments and made me feel absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day! I would highly recommend this vendor!!

    Anita and her team were so much fun to work with! She did such an incredible job on my makeup for both my bridals and for the wedding day as well. She gave me exactly the look that I was going for. She is the sweetest and she will do everything she can to make sure that you look your best on the big day! Very professional and always easy to get a hold of. I highly recommend Anita! She is the absolute best! Thanks again Anita and the rest of the Elan team :)

    Elan and her team were so great to work with. I was able to get my make up and hair done for our engagement photos and the day of the wedding. She also allowed me to come in prior to the wedding day and talk through how I wanted my hair and make up and we did a trail run to make sure all elements were on point. Day of the wedding, she brought in 4 more artist to help with all bridesmaids hair and make up and her team was so diligent and fun to be around. I highly recommend her for any events and hope I can use her in the near future.

    If you are looking for the best makeup artist and hairstylist for your wedding, look no further because you have found her. Anita Brown is the owner of Elan and she is the best in town. She offers many different packages as well as a la carte services all at reasonable rates to meet any budget. She was so accommodating and met every need of my daughter and her 12 brides maids, including myself and her new mother-in-law. Anita made this part of the planning and the actual wedding day stress free. It was so nice not having to worry whether everyone's makeup and hair would hold up in the July heat. She recommended airbrushing and applied enough product to keep everyone's hair in place. She brought in extra team members to make sure all the bridesmaids and the bride would all be ready on time. Anita and her team are the most talented in the area so book early because she really will make everyone in the wedding look their best.

    Anita did a wonderful job of making sure I looked and felt like a beautiful bride. During our consultation, she asked all the right questions to learn my style and what I was hoping for. She did my full hair and make up for both my bridal portraits and the wedding. She exceeded my expectations throughout the entire process. She took such great care of me and my bridesmaids. They all looked gorgeous! I highly recommend Anita and her team for your wedding. She is so good at what she does and will make you feel more beautiful than ever!

    Elan Make-up studios is AMAZING (Anita has the most magical hand - my husband does not like a ton of makeup whereas I do and she was able to make me look flawless! My Husband was SOO excited!) Anita did my hair / make-up for my bridals, boudoir, and wedding day and my only regret was not finding her in time to use her for my engagement photos as well! I am already looking forward to using her for all of our family photos and all events in the future! The whole team was super friendly and amazing (they did my bridal parties hair and make-up - all 10 of them plus grandmas and moms!) LOVED! Definitely one of my favorite wedding vendors!

    I cannot say enough great things about Anita and her team at Elan Makeup Studios! They did all of my hair and makeup services throughout my wedding, including bridal photos and the day of! I had a large wedding party, and they were BEYOND efficient on the morning of the wedding! They did an absolutely beautiful job, and all of my ladies looked stunning! You cannot go wrong booking Anita and her team. She is very responsive from the minute you put in a request for information on availability to the wedding day itself. She made everything so easy for me, and I was so grateful for that! Do yourself a favor and book Elan Makeup Studios! You will absolutely not be disappointed!

    There was no question asked that I would use Anita with Elan Makeup Studio for my wedding! She is the best in the industry, I love her work so I knew she would do the perfect job! I was having a hard time at first knowing what I wanted, I would send her pics and ask for her opinion and one thing I love about her is she is honest! She knew my style of wedding and my personality and one day sent me an inspirational picture for my hair, and there it was the perfect idea! No questions asked that's what I wanted! My hair is something people still are talking about, it was beyond FABULOUS! Thank you Anita for all your work, you made it so easy and not a worry at all! Love you lady!

    Anita and her team were awesome! She is so professional and really was so timely when arriving at our venue on the wedding day. Prior to the day, she was so pleasant to work with and really followed my vision for two hairstyles that I wanted and a very natural yet glamorous look for my wedding. Not only is she excellent at what she does, but she has a great team that backs her up and made all of my bridesmaids looks amazing! She was so fun to work with!!

    Anita and her crew were fantastic to work with and reasonably priced for the services provided. Anita is super down-to-earth and fun to talk to. As the bride, I got airbrush makeup, which looked great in the photos. My girls had normal makeup, and it lasted the evening as well.

    Anita and her team were INCREDIBLE. I felt like a million dollars on my day and so did my wedding party. Everyone on her team is so professional and good at what they do. I plan on using Elan Makeup for any beauty needs for all upcoming events and pictures. Everything was five star from my makeup to extensions to hair to lashes! Easy to work with and great customer service.
    Thanks Anita!
