Celissa was absolutely amazing to work with! She did my hair and make-up for my bridal portraits and wedding day and I absolutely loved the results. I am a very indecisive person and I did not know how I wanted to do my hair and make-up for my wedding day. Celissa was so patient with me and tried numerous different hair styles until we found the perfect one! I ended up wearing my hair half up/half down for my ceremony and pinning it up afterwards for the reception. The results were beautiful and I couldn't be happier. Celissa and her staff are also very fast! She did hair and make-up for my 12 bridesmaids as well as my mother & mother-in-law. Needless to say, we were on a tight schedule to get everyone done on time and she had no problem getting it done. All my bridesmaids looked amazing and I would recommend her to anyone. Beyond her work, Celissa is such a sweet and caring person and I was very lucky to have her support on my wedding day.
This review is a little delayed because I don't even know where to begin with how amazing Celissa is. I found her after I had an unfortunate experience with another hair and makeup artist that I used for my engagement photos. I came into my trial weary of the experience and desperate for help since my wedding was only a couple months away. From the very start, Celissa was absolutely wonderful! I don't wear a lot of makeup, so she was very good at making sure I was comfortable with everything she was doing. I didn't give her a whole lot of direction other than a few things I knew I didn't like and she came up with a hair and makeup style that truly made me feel beautiful. Trust me brides when I say, the last thing you need to be worrying about on your wedding day is how you look. Celissa will take care of you! One thing I really loved is that she does not mess around with timing. She sent a schedule before hand of what times she would be doing everyone's hair and makeup. Not only did she stay on time but she even worked ahead of schedule. This gave us extra time for pictures and fun before the ceremony started! I can't tell you how sweet she was, once we got to the venue my nerves started kicking in and she could tell. She cleared the room, made me put on music, and poured me a mimosa while she finished up my hair! Her services are absolutely worth the money. I've never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day! Thank you so very much Celissa!
Celissa is so incredible! We met to do the trial and I was so impressed with my hair and makeup! She was communicative and kept me up to date on everything and even made me a schedule for myself and bridesmaids so there were no questions. While getting ready we had 8 women getting ready in a tiny room and she never complained and got everyone ready on time. I felt so beautiful and had so many compliments that night. Thank you so much Celissa!!! :)
Where to begin to tell you how awesome Celissa is?!?! You want Celissa to do ALL of your wedding related makeup, no, you NEED her to. She will make you look phenomenal, she will keep you laughing, she will help you keep calm and regale you with terrifying tales of weddings gone wrong so that you know the things going wrong on your day really aren't so bad. Celissa was endlessly patient and graceful with the complete chaos that my wedding day turned into. An unexpected storm of epic proportions blew in on my wedding day blocking my path to the venue from where I had picked up my dress. Celissa quickly restructured the make up plan for the day and worked on the bridesmaids and moms until I arrived. When I got there, feeling frazzled, exhausted and penitent for being tardy and damp (she needed my hair dry for my 'do), she handed me a blow dryer with a smile and helped me remain calm as I watched the courtyard in which I was to wed slowly fill with inches of water. She, along with her sister (her co-artist / partner for the day), and our splendid photographer Amy Gawlik, really felt like part of my group of friends and I couldn't have been more thrilled having all of their great upbeat energy, expertise, and general radness with me for my big day. How did my makeup look? I have never looked better. I am still prone to breakouts and wedding stress had done a big number on my face that week, not only did she completely disguise any trace of my breakouts, I looked GREAT, my bridesmaids looked AMAZING, and the moms looked WONDERFUL. In our trial session she was very open to creative experimentation, which was fun and ended up working out a really great look I'd not have requested on my own originally. Her creativity and skill with makeup was so on pointe and innovative I actually plan to book her for some makeup lessons in the future! Celissa will forever be my go-to make up gal for any special event.
This woman is amazing. Simply incredible.
She was recommended to me by my wedding planner, and I am SO HAPPY. We started by doing a trial, and I only did make-up, not hair. I have very curly hair and thought I would wear it mostly down for the ceremony. However, once the day came, I change my mind last minute and did a big high volume, yet low and messy bun. She nailed it. No hair trial, just a simple picture and few words to express the look I was hoping for, and she hit is spot on.
My makeup was also flawless! She was so great because she gave me suggestions based on my skin, eye lashes, etc. She also slowly eased into the eye makeup to ensure it was dramatic but still classy. At the trial and day of, she also taught me and my bridesmaid tricks to the trade for us to use later.
The biggest surprise was that both my hair and me make-up staying on all night! I was dancing hard and working up a bit of a sweat, so I find this to be remarkable - especially because my hair is usually out of control.
I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone needing hair or make-up services. She is truly a professional, and even though our time together was limited, I would consider her a friend. She is a sweet and classy lady that provides flexibility and calmness during chaos and she delivers!
I struggled to find someone for my wedding hair and make-up. THANK GOD I found Celissa! I'm pretty sure she is a hair and make-up magician. My sisters, mom, mother-in-law and myself absolutely loved her. She was on time, so fun to work with, had awesome ideas and did an all around killer job. Looking back on my wedding pictures, I can't imagine someone doing a better job than she did. We all looked fabulous! Thank you, Celissa!
Thank you for the kind words! It was an absolute pleasure to doll up you purdy ladies! You made one gorgeous bride! Congratulation and I wish you and the hubby a lifetime of happiness! :)
Celissa made my bridesmaids and I look amazing on my wedding day. I've never felt prettier!
Celissa was highly recommended by a friend and I was excited that she was available for my wedding. I used my hair trial for my bridal photos 2 weeks prior to the wedding and was so happy with the results! She’s fun to talk to, sweet and does a fantastic job! My makeup looked natural but glamorous at the same time. She did hair, makeup and lashes for some of my bridesmaids as well. Celissa communicated well and was so flexible and nice with my indecisive bridal party. I adore this girl and her work! She’s magical!
Working with Celissa was one of the highlights of my wedding planning experience. I had complete trust and faith in her abilities, and she made my trial and my wedding day go so smoothly. It was ab absolute pleasure working with her.
I don't even know where to start... She was AMAZING! Before my own wedding I was in 3 of my friends weddings. Each time I had issues with the hair and makeup that we had done and never liked BOTH my hair and makeup. And other girls in the wedding parties were the same way. Not only did ALL my girls like their hair AND makeup, but so did I! I was so happy with the way my hair and makeup turned out. I did a trial, but after being in other weddings, I figured out I wanted a darker look. She was happy to make any changes from the original trail. I can't say more good things about her and her team. She is worth every penny!!
Celissa and her partner was AWESOME!!! She did hair and makeup for both Mothers, all of my bridesmaids and I. We all loved her! She was very easy to talk to and anytime I wanted to add or change something, she never hesitated. Both airbrush and normal makeup looked absolutely beautiful. Very happy bride!
The nicest, sweetest girls!!! They were incredibly helpful, and made us all look gorgeous!! Would definitely hire them again!
Celissa did an amazing job with my hair! I had to change a few things so she was very flexible and made sure everything worked out as planned.
I could not be happier with the quality and services! She was extremely responsive and tried to be as flexible as possible with my bridal hair and makeup. She showed up promptly on my wedding day and had all of us girls looking beautiful ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend her to any bride.
Celissa and her team were amazing! They adapted to our schedule and helped keep me relaxed on my big day. They did an amazing job with all the girls hair and makeup and everyone was so pleased. Celissa is such a good person and will definitely be using her for my next occasion!
The makeup and hair services provided on my wedding day were amazing! Celissa was wonderful to work with.
Celissa was fantastic! Did an amazing job on my hair and make up as well as my mom and maid of honor's, also she was super nice and easy to just talk to and hang out with, definitely recommend to anyone for their big day!
Celissa was so very wonderful to work with. She was very attentive to my wants and needs for both hair and make up for all stages, bridal portraits, trial, and wedding day. Always making sure at each and every step that it was exactly what I wanted and envisioned. Her make up technique of airbrush basically eliminated the need for editing in all photos. Hair was perfect from beginning to end of ceremony. I highly recommend her for your event needs. Her kindness, workability, flexibility, and expertise is hard to beat.
I used Celissa for my bridal hair and my flower girl and jr bridesmaid. She did AMAZING!!! I had a 3 yr old and 6 yr old. Their hair stayed in all night!! And she was so quick at doing their hair, knowing their attention span wasn't very long. She also did my make up. A phenomenal job. Make up looked perfect all night. And was waterproof. No smudging. She knew exactly how to do my hair with the picture I showed her. And we didn't even do a trial. I was so pleased with the way everything turned out!! If she's available, she's a busy busy woman, I would definitely have her do your wedding. AMAZING!!!
I had a very big day last Friday and Celissa, wow what an artist. I gave her almost no information on what I wanted... I just didn't know myself and she knocked it out of the park! I went from plain Jane to bombshell in about 30 minutes. I can't recommend Celissa enough. She is a true artist!
Celissa and her team were fantastic! When I first e-mailed her, she responded right away and after getting some information, she sent me a tentative timeline of the day. Being a very organized person, the schedule she sent early on put me at ease. I had a few designs and she tweaked them to make it fit my hair without losing the look and the makeup was just what I wanted- I looked natural but it brought out my eyes. Her team was there early and ready to go and they even got through everyone early! Celissa makes you feel really comfortable and really wants to bring your vision to life. The hair and makeup held-up wonderfully even on our cold and rainy wedding day. It was a great experience!
I am so glad that I chose Celissa for my wedding day hair and make up as well as for my bridal portraits. She was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. Celissa is very professional and was a lot of fun to get to know while she worked on me. I don't usually wear make up or style my hair so she always asked me what I thought of what she was wanting to apply before she actually put it on. She was great, and I would definitely recommend her services to anyone I now!
I am happy that I choose to have Celissa do hair and make up for my wedding! Whenever I get my hair and make up done for special events I often feel like I don't look like myself anymore. Celissa did a great job of listening to the look I was going for and gave me just that. I still looked like me but she did a better job than I could have done myself in 1,000 years.
Another thing she did well was stay on schedule with the large number of girls she had to do. Everyone looked amazing and she finished all the bridesmaids and both moms ahead of schedule. With all the commotion on the wedding day, I really appreciate her staying on (ahead of) the schedule she made!
Overall, Celissa is a joy to work with and if I had to do it over I would definitely use choose to work with her again!
Celissa and her team were talented, efficient and accommodating in doing hair and makeup for the mothers, bridesmaids and the bride for our daughter's recent wedding. The team questioned each person on the look they desired while incorporating the bride's vision. As I looked at the wedding party during the ceremony, I thought, "Every girl looks gorgeous!" And our bride's hair and makeup was just exquisite! Celissa provides great service at a great value! I highly recommend her!!!
Celissa did an amazing job on my wedding day. My hair and makeup was more I could ever ask for. She also did an amazing job on my bridesmaids hair and makeup as well. I will defiantly be referring her to everyone I know!
