Lauren · Married on 07/02/2016
Working with Lauren from Hello, Darling! Wedding + Event Hairstyling was seriously a dream come true for my wedding hair. When I first saw her site, I was pretty sure that I had found someone who knew the style I was going for (ethereal, romantic, refined, and fun). But, once I e-mailed with Lauren and then met her for a trial run, I knew that she was a keeper! I could not have dreamt of a better person to do my hair on my wedding day. She is the sweetest, most kind, and talented hair person I have met. She really knows her stuff and makes the process so enjoyable.
On the trial day, I was still unsure of what I wanted to do for my hair - down, up, or half-up, and Lauren helped me choose a hairstyle that I adored. She basically nailed what I had been hoping for but did not think was even possible! An effortless updo that was not stiff or overdone. My hair trial day was one of the highlights for me leading up to the wedding because I was so concerned about my hair, and I did not know I could love it so much! Also, I had so much fun talking with Lauren at the trial, and on my wedding day I felt like a friend was doing my hair because she is so easy to talk to and really cares about her clients.
Since the first e-mail I sent, Lauren was super responsive and flexible and went above and beyond to make sure that my mom, sister (the MOH), and I all felt beautiful and comfortable. She made sure that all of our hair concerns were addressed (as we do not have the easiest hair to work with), and all three of us were more than amazed with how she made our hair look! She also got two other great girls to do my bridal party's hair. I would highly highly recommend reaching out to Lauren for your wedding! I can't wait to have another excuse for her to do my hair! :)

After putting attention to the many other details of wedding planning, it was tough to research and find a good hairstylist. But gratefully, I remembered a friend using Lauren a few years ago.
When it comes to wedding/event hair, Lauren is the whole package. From our very first contact, she was extremely attentive and sweet. Further, her ability to style hair is top notch. Even through a quick survey of her work, you can see how well she styles hair.
On the day of the wedding, her professionalism was evident. Although wedding updos are more common for wedding hairstyles, she achieved my request to have it down. With patience, she took time to style not only my hair, but my mom's also.
Simply put, Lauren is fantastic! I would call her again in a heartbeat! :)

Lauren is absolutely positively the most amazing hairstylist ever. So glad I chose her after having several options. She was personable and nice but she knew what she was doing and in fact did an excellent job.

Lauren is an absolute doll. I loved working with her to do my wedding day hair. She was so flexible in our hair trials and worked so hard to give me exactly what I wanted to make me feel beautiful. She made the experience on my wedding day so relaxing and fun. I adore her! She is so amazing at what she does and really puts you at ease throughout the whole process.

Lauren was the dream hair stylist to work with! She offered excellent insight into what would look best after seeing several of my inspiration images but also continuously worked to perfect my bridal day hair over three sessions. The end result was exactly what I had imagined and I felt so confident in my look. On top of her expertise, Lauren is a beautiful, kind, and sweet individual that was a joy to work with for me and my family. So thankful we found her!

I met Lauren through a salon she used to work at, and immediately found her to be warm, friendly, attentive, responsive, and (probably most important for the purpose of this review!) immensely talented as a wedding hair stylist.
After I saw her for a haircut and inquired about her wedding styling services, she followed up with photos of similar styles she'd done as the one I had showed her for inspiration, and offered a great, affordable package for me, my mom, and future MIL. I did a hair trial with Lauren which turned out very nicely (I was going for sculpted, defined waves a la Kristin Cavallari's wedding hair), but Lauren, on her own initiative, followed up and offered me an additional trial at no cost because she wanted to try to see if hair extensions would help to give my desired hairstyle more volume and sculpting effect, since my natural hair is very thin and without much body even with product. I had never used extensions before, and was nervous about how they would look, but was willing to give them a shot after Lauren eased my fears. Lauren found the perfect match for my hair -- the second trial was amazing and made the hairstyle so much more beautiful and exactly what I was going for -- and Lauren thought creatively to add a little roping with a few top pieces which truly complemented my dress and the rustic yet elegant ambiance of the wedding. On the day of, Lauren recreated her masterpiece: I was so happy with how my hair looked, and I received so many compliments.
I highly recommend Lauren for wedding hair styling -- you will not be disappointed; she is truly gifted at what she does. I also love Lauren's home studio and her cut and color services -- it's comfortable, professional, and a wonderful change from your regular busy, chaotic, and impersonal salon experience.

There is great hair, and there are great people. Lauren @ Hello, Darling delivers both. My wedding hair was fantastic and she was such a pure joy to spend my wedding morning with. "Who" is as important to a wonderful wedding day as the "what" (pretty hair, etc.). She was so flexible and worked with me in every aspect. I love sweet Lauren and Hello, Darling! You won't be disappointed.

From first contacting 'Hello, Darling! Hairstyles', to the last day of Lauren's hire (in between consisted of: hair trials, contacting back and forth to discuss detail/adding on additional bridal party for hair, receiving contract,...) she was incredibly flexible, kind, and fully willing to serve to whatever extent was needed.
I had a tricky updo that consisted of curly waves all over- really quite beautiful. I had cut my hair and was desperately trying to grow it out for my wedding...so by this time it was only shoulder length which would make any updo appear small/without body and inadequate on its own. She offered and allowed me to borrow hair extensions for my wedding day which she had me simply return that week after. (who does that?! So willing and wonderful) the hair extensions incorporated into my hair in the updo changed the entire dynamic of the style..it made it utterly beautiful. Looking back at photos my eyes initially go to my hair first then the dress etc. that's saying quite a lot! I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments I received on my hair alone. I would definitely recommend Lauren Prohaska of Hello Darling Hairstyles to anyone and everyone. Her expertise combined with her loving heart for clients makes for a thoroughly calming experience!

Lauren from Hello Darling! did an amazing job for my wedding day.
Her confidence made me feel assured that she would do a good job. From the start she made it about ME and what I wanted. She was patient and listened to all the details of how I wanted my hair for my special day. She made me feel comfortable and let me be as picky as I wanted...this was important to me because I wanted to make sure I could communicate what I wanted without offending my hairstylist.
On the wedding day she was very punctual and was always calm among all the chaos going on around her. It was great to share my special day with someone who really cared to do an excellent job and was sweet and encouraging along the way. As a bride you have enough stress and its so nice to have someone who has been there and understands that you want everything to be perfect and will work with you towards that goal.
Oh and the over all experience is great!
She doesn't pull your hair ;)

Lauren was wonderful! She made me feel comfortable every step of the way and made sure things were exactly the way I wanted. I wasn't sure what I wanted when we started but she was patient and very accommodating. She gave good advice and opinions without being intrusive and truly wanted to make sure I was happy.
I would highly recommend Lauren for any hair services! :)
