Stop looking for a hair stylist and book Isabel ASAP. She is seriously amazing. What I really appreciated was the amount of time she spent on the trial run. Yes it does cost extra, but it was so worth it. I was undecided what I wanted but brought some inspiration pics. She took the time to try a couple styles out and tweaking it until I loved it! She really worked with me by creating aspects of different hair styles to get my overall look. What I appreciated most was her honesty. She told me what would stay and probably not stay with my hair and was really helpful with conveying this to my bridesmaids. The day of the wedding went so smooth, While it did seem like the hair was a long timeline, my photographer told me horror stories of weddings getting so behind from beauty. She buffered in the perfect amount of time, we finished with 15 minutes to spare and everyone looked absolutely gorgeous. She worked with me to recreate the trial run but tweaked a couple things so that my hair would stay longer. Also, all the bridesmaids loved their hair too which is a big plus! She was great to work with, so pleasant and fun to talk to!
Hi Victoria, thank you so much for the lovely review, and including these great pictures! I hope you and Will are well :)
Isabel Duarte of Total Babe Hair is a magical hair wizard who will make you look and feel like the absolute best version of yourself on your wedding day. Isabel and I first did a vintage-inspired updo at my trial and while it looked GORGEOUS (I got SO many compliments from strangers and friends), I decided I wanted to go with a vintage half-up, old Hollywood glam style instead. I typically would have been nervous to not do a trial of the hair-do, but I knew I was in the best hands with Isabel and they absolutely knocked it out of the park on our wedding day. It was EXACTLY what I wanted and stayed looking perfect all day and night - the style stayed so pretty that I didn't want to take it down when all was said and done at 2:30am! And it photographed beautifully, too. In addition to my 'do, Isabel was able to assist last minute with some light styling of my wife's super short hair. The expert styling totally elevated my gorgeous wife's look and made her feel polished and stunning. Not to mention, Isabel is just the best person and a joy to be around. If you want a gorgeous style from a wonderful person who will make you feel special and look like a dream, I cannot urge you more strongly to book with Total Babe Hair.
Hi Melissa, thank you for the lovely review, and for including all these fabulous pictures of you and Jill!
Isabel is just simply amazing. She did My hair and bridesmaids hair and I’ve never got so many compliments on how beautiful our hair was. I cannot thank her enough for making me look beautiful on my special day. She is such a sweet, friendly, professional, hardworking person! I’m so glad I was able to work with her and will definitely recommend her to anybody
Hi Brittany, thank you for the awesome review :) I hope you're having a wonderful 2018 so far!
After a terrible hair trial with another vendor, Isabel came to my rescue! She listens so carefully to what you’re interested in doing for your wedding day hair, asks great questions and works her magic to come up with unbelievably beautiful styles. I could not have been happier with what she did for my wedding day updo. She is incredibly talented — book her for your wedding today!!!
Hi Julia, thank you so much for the lovely review :) I hope you're having a great 2018 so far!
I can't sing Isabel's praises enough! She was such a joy to work with. From just the initial email contact she provided me with very thorough outline of services including a tentative timeline for our hair services on the day of -- very professional and responsive! Meeting her in person for my hair trial sealed the deal --- not only did she do an amazing job on my hair (taking very fine, straight hair and making it look like I had a ton of hair!!) she's also fun to be around. And on the day of she fit right in with my bridal party, plus her assistant was a lot of fun too. They got us all done in time and everyone looked gorgeous. I highly recommend her!
Hi Laurie, thank you for the great review :) also, thank you for including the adorable snapshot of you and Ryan! I hope you guys are having a fabulous 2018 so far!
I wouldn't change a thing about my experience with Isabel. Through every step - email correspondence, the trial, contract signing, wedding day - she was so wonderful to work with. She was always so easy to talk to, very professional, knowledgeable, and she pulled off EXACTLY what I wanted even though I couldn't even describe it very well and didn't even have an exact picture of what I wanted. I was very wishy washy with what I thought I wanted and we did a completely different style at the trial, but she answered all my questions and helped me finally make up my mind on our wedding day. I would highly recommend Isabel to any bride and bridal party.
Hi Leslie, thank you so much for the wonderful review :) I hope you and Anthony are well!
Isabel was fantastic. She was able to translate my complicate hairpiece into my hair ideas on the spot and was a pleasure to chat with on such a special day. I would book her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone reading this! She did beautiful work on my hair and that of my wedding gang too. Really loved the experience and loved her too!
Hi Christine, thank you for the great review :) I hope you're having a wonderful 2018 so far!
Isabel was by far my favorite vendor to work with throughout my entire wedding process. From start to finish Isabel answered all of my (many, many, many) questions promptly, provided creative suggestions in regards to my bridal hair style, and maintained a warm and professional demeanor. It was truly a pleasure to include Isabel on my wedding day!
Hi Olivia, thank you for the lovely review, and including these great pictures :) I hope you and Jason are having a fabulous 2018 so far!
Isabel is truly AMAZING at what she does! I could not picture my hair any better! She was able to create a style that fit my vision perfectly and all the bridesmaids loved how their hair turned out! The morning of the wedding went so smoothly and according to the schedule, it was perfect! I danced all night long, and my hair stayed perfect the entire time! Thanks Isabel!!
Hi Lauren, thank you so much for the lovely review :) I hope you and Ben are well!
Isabel was fantastic to work with. Super professional, responsive and talented. You will not regret working with her. Thank you for making me feel and look pretty.
Hi Rosh, thank you for the awesome review :) I hope you're having a great 2018 so far!
Working with Isabel was absolutely amazing! I had my trial before I knew exactly what I wanted. Isabel listened carefully and did what I asked- but it wasn't exactly what I wanted (since I hadn't been sure myself!). Over the months between my trial and the wedding, Isabel and I went back and forth with photos so we could hone in on exactly what I wanted. She was quick to respond and confident that on the day we'd get it right! She didn't suggest a second trial. And she was right! On the day she effortlessly executed exactly what I had imagined for my low, off-center, classic style. She and I also worked through a schedule for all of the other bridesmaids. On the wedding day she kept to time and was even able to effortlessly adapt as things changed with the makeup schedule. She was also a really fun and calming force in the room for the morning of getting ready! :) I would DEFINITELY recommend Isabel to my engaged friends!!
Hi Emma, thank you for the awesome review :) I hope 2018 has been great so far!
Isabel was wonderful! A pleasure to talk to and work with, very accommodating, and she did a great job on all of our hair (of varying lengths and textures)!
Hi Aviva, thank you for the great review :) I hope you're doing well!
Isabel was absolutely AMAZING to work with! She is extremely skilled at her craft, from scheduling large bridal parties within a short wedding day timeline to creating stunning looks for all hair types. From the first few emails we exchanged to schedule my bridal trial appointment, Isabel provided recommendations on shops near me to check for extensions, reviewed inspirational photos, and outlined a draft schedule and quote for all the bridesmaids and family members (9 total) getting their hair done. She even followed up a few days after the trial to check on how my hair held up throughout the night and whether I had any feedback before the big day. In the days leading up to the wedding, Isabel reached out with a detailed email to ensure all the girls picked out style options and wore the appropriate outfits not to ruin their hair when getting dressed. On the day of the wedding, Isabel arrived early and powered through everyone's hair styles, even making accommodations when girls changed their mind. We were all so pleased with the outcomes and my hair lasted throughout the night without a single issue! Isabel is beyond sweet, organized, and extremely talented - would recommend her to any bride to be!
Hi Sahara, thank you for the lovely review! I hope 2018 has been great so far! :)
Isabel is amazing. The MOST important thing from any stylist is communication and she's great with that. We did a trial with a hair style that ultimately didn't fit my taste, but she was able to create the vision I had in mind the day of the wedding anyway. I was also late the morning of the wedding, but she was prepared and ready to start on a different bridesmaid. My hair was still flawless by the end of the night !
Hi Eva, thank you for the great review! I hope you're doing well :)
Isabel was wonderful! She was very careful to listen to exactly what I asked for, and at my bridal trial she nailed my dream look right away, then perfectly replicated it for the wedding. All the bridesmaids loved working with her, their hair was gorgeous and lasted from early in the morning until late at night, and she was also very friendly and flexible. One bridesmaid had felt very strongly she wanted to do her own hair, and when she asked Isabel for help at the last minute, Isabel was able to work with us to fit her in the schedule. Also I should add, then when you and your bridesmaids are getting ready for hours on end, you want someone who is friendly and adds to the fun! Isabel was professional but very sweet and just a pleasure to have around. I would recommend her to anyone!
Hi Ann, thank you for the lovely review! I hope you're doing well! Congratulations to you and Drew on the new puppy, he is so adorable and I love seeing him and Teddy on IG :)
I was very happy with Total Babe Hair and Isabel. She did such a great job at our consultation and I booked her right away. I gave her some changes I wanted and she noted them for my wedding day hair. She was timely and talented. My other hair stylist for the wedding was very far behind and Isabel fit in another bridesmaid so we were able to get to the venue around the right time. She really saved the day! My hair was gorgeous all day!
Hi Nicole, thank you for the lovely review! I hope you're doing well :)
She is SO SO SO AWESOME. Isabel is such a sweet person and such a professional at what she does! Isabel was kind enough to allow me to do my hair trial with her twice because although the hair style was beautiful I wanted to try something different. I have to say I was pretty picky and stubborn with what I wanted and Isabel was able to perfect what I wanted! Even I wasn't even sure what I wanted.. I just knew I wanted my hair to have a lot of volume and make my face small.
On the day of the wedding, she came early and started work right away. All of the bridesmaids were in love with their hair and raved about how nice she was! So not only did she accomadate me but she accomadated everyone else!
She even worked with our make up artist to see who goes next and who should wait so no one is wasting time.
Thank you sooo much Isabel!!! You were amazing to work with!!!
Jennifer, thank you so much for your sweet review :) It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your ladies!
Isabel is amazing! Quick to respond. Always as nice as she can be. Very flexible and easy to talk to. For my hair trial for my wedding she did exactly what I told her to do, but it ended up not being exactly what I wanted. The day of the wedding she changed some things around and I LOVED my hair!! I got so many compliments that night. I highly recommend her!
Paige, thank you for the great review! I hope 2018 is treating you well so far :)
Isabel is awesome! She did a great job with my hair along with my 5 bridesmaids. She was very accommodating with one of my bridesmaids who was wearing a wig. I would highly recommend her services. :)
Christine, thank you so much :) I had a great time working with you and your girls! I can't wait to see pictures!
Isabel is phenomenal!!! Do not hesitate!!! Call her ASAP and schedule a hair trial!!!! Isabel is a brilliant, creative, and talented stylist. She is able to create any style-- she will match your expectations perfectly. My hair looked a million times better than I could have ever imagined. Also, Isabel is so warm, kind, and easy to work with. I felt like I was just hanging out with a close girlfriend, and then voila...stunning hair!!!! It was like magic!!! AND, Isabel is the most professional vendor I have ever worked with. She will respond to your emails promptly, address your questions/concerns thoroughly, and keep you on schedule. It was pouring outside on my wedding day, but Isabel still arrived early after navigating terrible traffic, horrendous weather, and a challenging parking situation in DC. Isabel's services are a steal. Other stylists in the DC area were double her rates, and I can't imagine they are as talented and lovely as she is. Hire Isabel!!! She will not disappoint.
Sanaz, thank you so much for the kind review! I had a wonderful time meeting and working with you :) I hope newly wed life is treating you guys well!
I'm so thankful and grateful that Isabel and her assistant Jackie were able to do my & my bridesmaid's hair for my wedding day last month. She understood my vision instantly, the day-of hairstyle was just as great as the trial we had, and the style lasted all night. Together they knocked out like 7 hairstyles in just a few hours, and all my bridesmaids were happy! Highly recommend working with Isabel at Total Babe Hair!!
Hi Courtney, thank you for the lovely review! I hope you and Nick are well :)
Isabel was great to work with! My hair looked beautiful after my trial and on my wedding day- and stayed intact despite crazy winds! Not only did the bridal party's hair look great, it felt like having another friend to talk with as we got ready that morning.
Tracy, thank you so much for the awesome review! I'm so glad to hear the wind wasn't an issue! I had a great time working with you and your ladies :) Congratulations to you and Todd!
Isabel is FABULOUS! I booked her for myself and a bridesmaid for my 10/16/16 wedding, and knew from the moment we started my trial that she was the one for me. She is personable, easy to talk with, receptive to requests for edits to the hairstyle, and insistent that perfection is the only acceptable result. I feel confident that if I hadn't been completely satisfied, she would have done whatever was necessary to make my wedding hairstyle perfect. She is also one of the most affordable vendors in the area. If I have any other big events in my future, I will not hesitate to book Isabel again.
Hi Caitlin, thank you so much for the wonderful review :) It was great to work with you- I would love if you reached out for any future events! Take care and have an awesome holiday season!
Isabel is so wonderful and knew exactly how to achieve the look I wanted. She was so kind and flexible with my needs and did an absolutely amazing job on my hair. My guests would not stop commenting on how beautiful my hair was and it stood in place all day through all the crazy dancing in the outdoor humid weather! Isabel is extremely professional and would whole heartedly recommend her to any bride to be :)
Joo, thank you for the kind review! It was wonderful to work with you on your big day :) I'm glad to hear you were so happy with your hair and got so many compliments! The photos of you and your husband are absolutely lovely! Best wishes to you and JD, and happy holidays!
Isabel did my wedding hair, along with my 4 bridesmaids, MOB, MOG, and sister of the groom. I loved my hair-it fit my personality, venue, and dress so well. What I loved most the day of is that Isabel did 4 unique style for my bridesmaids. My only request was that they had updos because it was August, but she captured their personalities so well and they all looked gorgeous. She was a pleasure to work with and kept me relaxed with funny stories as we were getting ready. She was professional and kept us on track to be ready, which was important to me. My bridesmaids loved her and I would recommend her to any brides in the DMV area.
Hi Kelsey, thank you for the great review! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your ladies :) Take care and have a lovely holiday season!
