I don't even know where to start. Mo Bowers, Kate Rodriguez, and the team saved my wedding day, there's not a single other vendor that I am more grateful for. They did my hair and make up.Sent on 06/02/2014
My wedding planner recommended Fairy Godmother Bridal nearly 9 months before my wedding planning process started and when I emailed them, I got a quote back that seemed significantly more expensive than others (in retrospect, it's absolutely not, you get what you pay for). So fast forward and over the 9 months, I had 3 different make up trials, 3 different hair trials and a week before my wedding, I am STILL not happy with the hair and make up artists I've chosen. At this point, I've also spent WAY more money than I would have if I had just gone with FGB in the first place.
Anyway, so the week before my wedding, my wedding planner recommends Fairy Godmother Bridal again as I mention how I don't love my hair stylist or make up artist. Mo Bowers introduces me to Kate Rodriguez, who is amazingly talented at doing hair. So, my 4th hair trial a week before my wedding, I finally found a hair stylist I loved and quickly booked Kate for hair for my wedding day.
At this point, I'm still keeping my original make up artist, who I was not happy with for several reasons, but thinking it would be okay. Fast forward to day of my wedding at 6:30 am, my old make up artist emails something like "if you insist I come, I'll be there". I'm freaking out, but again FGB sent an new amazingly talented Make up artist, who i didn't even have a trial with, but was above and beyond the best artist I had tried.
I felt beautiful on my wedding day and had not a single regret for hair or make up like I did in all the trials. You spend so many thousands on every other service for the wedding, go with an "expensive" make up / hair artist that might be a $100 or $200 more, it's so so worth it to look and feel your best and you'll have these pictures for a lifetime.

Mo did my hair and makeup for both my wedding rehearsal and wedding day, as well as my bridesmaid's hair and makeup. She did an amazing job!!! I looked perfect for my big day and got tons of compliments, as did my bridesmaids. She's a blast to talk to (seemed like we were old friends) and went out of her way to keep my wedding day stress-free. She even had one of her assistants run a last minute errand for me. She's absolutely fabulous and I highly, highly recommend her!Sent on 02/09/2010

Mo is awesome! She is not only professional but a great makeup and hair stylist. She asked the right questions to truely understand what hair style and look my daughter wanted for her wedding. She is fun to work with and pull together a team for your whole wedding party. My daughter and I thought she was wonderful and would and have recommended her to others. Thanks again for the great job. Dian DorseySent on 02/07/2010

Mo Bowers is an amazing beauty professional. I am always weary of someone else doing my hair and make-up, and I can honestly say that I will never let anyone else besides her touch my hair or face. She definitely knows how to bring out the best in your natural looks and can also do a lot of interpretive make-up and hair based on celebrities and your suggestions.Sent on 02/08/2010

I can't say enough good things about Mo Bowers! She is incredibly professional, talented and such a wonderful person. Her work is amazing, she doesn't force a certain look that she wants to see, and she wants her clients to feel comfortable with their hair and make-up.Sent on 02/08/2010
Due to an unexpected surgery, engagement and bridal portrait shoots had to be pushed back as late as possible. Mo was incredibly flexible and helpful in so many ways!
I worked with Mo for hair and make-up for my engagement and bridal shoot, rehearsal dinner and wedding. She and her team also did the hair and/or make-up for our wedding party! Everyone was very happy with their look! They were a little afraid to have someone do their make-up and hair but in the end, they were thrilled.
Mo was very accommodating, there were big and little girls that decided on the day of wedding that they would "love" to have their hair and make-up done by Mo! She made it all happen and everyone look fantastic! Mo also helped me learn how to do a "5 minute" face for our honeymoon! To say that Mo is an amazing professional is not doing her justice. Her personality and outlook on life are refreshing and we should all strive to take a page or two out of her book.
I will be working with Mo for years to come and wish I could give her more stars in rating my experience with her.

I couldn't believe it was me in the pictures! I've never looked so, well beautiful! I never knew I could look like that. And what was weird is it really didn't look like I had a lot of make-up on? I even looked great the next morning!!! One of the best surprises of my wedding!!Sent on 01/22/2010

Mo was so easy and great to work with on my wedding day. She tailored her services uniquely to my personality and what I wanted on my wedding day. I could not have felt more beautiful thanks to her fabulous hair and makeup expertise. I get to relive how beautiful I felt everyday with my wedding photos. If there is one thing not to skimp on in your wedding budget, it's a professional hair and makeup artist and Mo is among the best!Sent on 02/14/2010

Mo was absolutely amazing. I know every bride feels most beautiful on her wedding day but Mo made it happen. The make up was FLAWLESS and my hair was amazing. She came back half way through my reception to touch up my make up and let down my hair in a more romantic style and it was equally as unbelievable as my updo. She is not only an amazing artist but an amazing person as well. Mo truly cared and listened to exactly what I want. I've since had her do my makeup for a number of special events and will use her as long as she's doing make up. She's my fairy Godmother for sure!Sent on 09/02/2009

I want to say that I felt VERY beautiful when Mo did my makeup for my portrait and our wedding. She was helpful with ideas and was very knowledgable. I did have to wait on her for both of our scheduled times. This added to the stress of the days, but other than that, she was fabulous! :)Sent on 02/09/2010
