I used GlamSquad for my bridal hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. They were so friendly and professional and made us all look great! I can't recommend them highly enough!Sent on 01/26/2016

I used Glamsquad for my wedding day hair and makeup. I didn't know what to expect—you don't choose your own stylist, no one I know had used it, etc—but I had waited until the last minute to figure out wedding day hair & makeup, and as a normally-low-maintenance hair person, I don't have a regular stylist or salon I like. All I knew is that I wanted someone who could come to me at the hotel where I'd be getting ready with family and bridesmaids, and I had a vague idea (with a couple pictures for examples) of how I wanted my hair and makeup. Somehow from that, the amazing stylists who showed up—one for hair (Ebony), one for makeup (Jocelyn)—knew exactly how to transform my hair and makeup into what I wanted! Both turned out so so so so good, and I got a ridiculous number of compliments, especially on the hair. Plus, the stylists were in and out very quickly, and also just very sweet and cool to chat with while they were around. Ultimately turned out better than I could've imagined.Sent on 07/01/2018

The Glamsquad LA team did my hair and makeup for my wedding, as well as hair + makeup for my mom and makeup for my best friend, and it was all PERFECT. Kerin did our makeup and Sarah did our hair and they were so nice and talented. They were awesome during my trial and went out of their way to make sure that everything was exactly how I wanted it. All my guests were freaking out about how good my hair and makeup looked and the pictures look amazing. The team that books weddings was also super fast and efficient with customer service and answering my questions. Cannot recommend them enough.Sent on 02/12/2018

I hired Glamsquad to do hair and makeup for myself and 9 other ladies on my wedding day! Coordinating this was a tall order and Glamsquad excelled at organizing everyone's hair and makeup and making everyone look beautiful on the day-of! Now that I've worked with them for my wedding I'll definitely continue to do so- I highly recommend them!Sent on 12/28/2016
To plan the services I was paired with one member of the Glamsquad team- she coordinated everything including matching me with a team to do my bridal hair and makeup. I was able to do a trial run with each stylist so that we could decide on a look before my wedding. My contact at Glamsquad also matched a team of freelancers (6 total!) to do hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and mothers. Knowing that we would have plenty of stylists was really reassuring- I was never concerned about running late and it was also great that Glamsquad didn't add on extra fees for working with such a large group. Overall, their services are an excellent value and their office team is very responsive and knowledgeable.
The freelance stylists were on time, efficient, friendly, and PROs! Everyone looked beautiful and all of the stylists made sure that everyone was happy with their look- I was really impressed that each person could customize their hair and makeup to their taste rather than having to decide on one "look." Again, I highly recommend them!

Glamsquad has to be the best thing to ever happen to bridal parties. I booked them for my 6 bridesmaids, who ranged in age (from 16 to 36), in ethnicity, and in hair style from Short Crop to Could Donate Twice to Locks of Love With One Cut. Being able to prepay (including tip) took so much confusion out of the prep part of the day - our stylists arrived, did their thing, and departed, with no one fumbling for cash, asking if they could take a check, or asking another 'maid if they could borrow $20. And our stylists were so talented! They managed to hit the nail on the head for each of my girls, for both hair and makeup, despite our wide range of skin colors, hair textures, and personal styles. Everyone looked their best, and felt like they had gotten exactly what they wanted, and the stylists themselves were so professional, on time, and calm during the whole process, it put all of us at ease as well.Sent on 12/27/2016

I made a reservation for hair and makeup with lashes. Two different girls came and worked at the same time. They both did exactly what I asked!! They're work was great and the girls were sweet as well. It wasn't too expensive either compared to going to a salon and getting the same services. Best part is they come to you!Sent on 10/29/2015

Glam Squad responded to emails super quickly and were flexible booking hair and makeup to come to a hotel I was staying at in Brooklyn. The stylists arrived perfectly on time, were super friendly and professional. The hair and makeup was exactly what I was looking for and it lasted during a very long, hot day. I had booked makeup with lashes for both myself and my mom. My mom opted to forgo the lashes and I assumed I would just pay the "for lashes" price because that's what I booked but Glam Squad adjusted the final invoice which I was pleasantly surprised with. I would book Glam Squad again without hesitation.Sent on 05/02/2016

Glam Squad was great to work with. Their prices were very competitive with other salons in the neighborhood AND they come to you. For me and six other ladies they sent three hair stylists and thee makeup artists. They were all a pleasure to work with but Joel was a star. Highly recommended!Sent on 05/22/2016

I used GlamSquad for bridal and bridal party hair and makeup. It was perfect. We hired several stylists to come the day of and get us all ready. They were right on time and brought all of the equipment with them. It was so relaxing to have it done at home.Sent on 11/29/2015
Everyone looked beautiful, was ready on time, and had a wonderful experience in the process.
Can't recommend them highly enough!

The team at GlamSquad are true professionals. Make-up was attended firstly ands I couldn't of asked for any better. Anthony perfectly executed the old glamor look I was after. His skills and delicate touch are the best I have experienced by far. Anthony was polite and charming, I would be happy to work with him again in the future. Thank you Anthony.Sent on 10/01/2015
Just as Anthony finished my hair stylist, Yajaira arrived in perfect timing. Yajaira knew the exact style I was after with very little guiding. My hair stayed in perfect position the entire day, and to top it off Yajaira kindly buttoned my dress up before graciously departing.
Thank you GlamSquad Team for ensuring I look gorgeous on my magical day.

I used Glamsquad for my wedding day hair and makeup for me and my wedding party of 5 women and two moms who all needed some combination or hair and/or makeup done. I was thrilled with how my hair and makeup turned out - I know hair and makeup is such a high pressure thing for brides because we want to look PERFECT on our wedding day but seriously I was so happy with their work. My hair and makeup lasted all the way through the afterparty at 2am. Diana, is amazing at makeup, and Fania is amazing with hair. I recommend them both. I did do a hair and makeup trial with both of them a couple months beforehand and I'm glad I did because it helped us to iron out exactly what I wanted for my look, so that on the day of, they could just go through the looks that we had decided on previously and everything was easy, smooth, and efficient.Sent on 06/07/2016
Glamsquad's wedding team worked with me to coordinate how many stylists we'd need and how much time they'd need to be done by the time we had to be ready. They sent 3 hair stylists and 2 makeup artists. They estimated with the large group that I had, that we'd need 3 hours to get everyone ready, so they said they would arrive at noon so we could all be ready by 3. The day of, they arrived at my apartment half an hour early! I was so impressed. They all arrived early and they were all DONE early. Me and my bridesmaids, mom, and mother-in-law all had a free hour to hang out and drink champagne and chill because Glamsquad was so fast they were done at 2pm instead of the scheduled 3pm. Everybody was happy with them. My mom and mother in law kept telling them "you girls are amazing!" Their work is amazing, their prices are the best deal I could find in NYC (much cheaper than SO many other stylists I looked at), they are professional, prompt, and easy to work with, and they come to wherever you are. I would recommend them again in a heartbeat.

I was super nervous the morning of my wedding. The only person having hair/makeup done was myself, and I was nervous not knowing the name or having stalked the work of my hair & makeup team.Sent on 11/11/2018
Never been so happy to be proven wrong.
My hair was done by Cali. I have a pixie cut with longish bangs. She took my thin, sparse hair and made it look thick and lush. She looked at my pinned looks with curls and took note of the greenery crown I was going to wear, and designed curls that looked tousled and natural, but DID NOT MOVE or lose volume all day.
My face was done by Annette. I knew I was in for a treat when she spent a few minutes just looking at my face in the light. Again, she looked at a couple things I'd pinned and recommended what would look best on my complexion. She left the coverage light but photo-ready, and over all made me look glamorous but not heavily done. I looked like myself, but elevated. Perfect.
Both artists were friendly and relaxed and made me feel at ease. I never get my hair or makeup done and they told me exactly what they were doing and didn't push me into anything I wasn't in to. Totally recommend!

So I didn't actually have my hair done with Glamsquad for my wedding, but my bridesmaids did. Leslie Wisdom did the hair for four of my bridesmaids and did a fantastic job. Two of my friends are super picky with their hair and I was worried it wouldn't work. But she did exactly what they wanted and it turned out beautifully. And she even re-did my friend's updo when she decided she wanted more pieces out in front. Everyone was super happy and looked beautiful.Sent on 05/18/2017
Leslie also arrived on time, was really professional, and everything went smoothly. Definitely recommend.
Nicole · Married on 08/04/2016
I eloped in NYC and was not very familiar with any reputable salons or beauty services in the area. I was willing to spend a decent amount of money to get my hair and makeup done in my hotel room, but some of the good salons that I found on Yelp were still out of my budget. Glamsquad wasn't the most prompt with following up with me via email. I had to call them about a week after I sent my credit card info over to make sure that my reservation was confirmed. However, I was very, very pleased with the both the hair and makeup stylist that they sent on my wedding day. It's great how they work in tandem. I was finished in just over one hour, and the results were even better than I could have imagined! The price includes a 20% gratuity for the stylists.Sent on 08/14/2016
Emile · Married on 04/14/2018
I had a difficult time with using Glamsquad for my bridal party. First, you don't get direct contact with the vendor. I had to give my planner the 800 number to confirm the reservation. Two, my maids were not happy with their hairstyles which led to the stylist being there longer than planned. Glamsquad charged me extra for this, and then called me about it ON MY WEDDING DAY as I'm trying to get dressed. It was not the right time for them to reach out about the issue and added a layer of stress that I just didn't need at that moment. I ended up having my credit card company handle it instead. In the end, my girls looked great but it was more hassle than it was worth.Sent on 05/17/2018
Debra · Married on 05/29/2017
Awful . They sent me 2 awful with very bad attitudes who ended up leaving without doing makeup. Glamsquad said I would not be charged, Then Glamsquad billed my credit card around $1000 which they refused to take care of. When I called to contest this , they wouldn't even give me the name of the person in charge as though they had something to hide. WARNING!!! CHECK YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENT CAREFULLY AS YOU MAY BE OVERCHARGED OR BILLED FOR A HAIR AND MAKEUP SERVICE THEY DID NOT HAVE.Sent on 05/30/2017

THE worst experience with hair and makeup ever.Sent on 12/21/2017
I had an appointment for hair and makeup on Friday, December 8, 2017 at 3:30. Los Angeles.
I received a confirmation plus 4 reminders which was fine. I was told to have hair shampooed and wet at 3:15pm.
AT 3:14 I received a call from an unidentified NY number. Ordinarily I would not have answered, but I did and was told that my "stylist had cancelled and we have been calling everyone to find someone who can come out but we have been unsuccessful". This was at the same time I was getting into the shower. Stylist was scheduled to arrive in 15 minutes. This was for my company's annual Christmas party where I am an executive and the host.
Unbelievable. Had I gone to a salon, and this happened, there would have been someone else who could have done my hair.
I have NOT received any communication from the company just a note that my appt was cancelled and there would not be a charge.
Nancy · Married on 09/22/2018
I can't give this business a half a star. I called 3 different times and was given 3 different sets of instructions on how to book a appointments for a bridal party of fourteen! I followed each set of instructions. Ultimately, a very unpleasant and disrespectfully rude wedding coordinator named Kristin gave me a 4th set of instructions. She quoted prices twice what I had been given. I won't be using the GlamSquad.Sent on 03/28/2018
I WASTED WAY TO MUCH TIME ON THIS BUSINESS. UGH.
