Beautiful hair and makeup!
Thank you so much Andrea!!
Biggest regret was hiring them.
I paid $50 per stylist (2 stylists) for an early morning fee (7:30am start time as per contract) and both stylists were late. Makeup was 15 mins and hair stylist over an hour late. I told Joanne that I deserved my $100 back and she said an early morning fee just means they start before 8:30am. The contract meant absolutely nothing to her. After an hour long phone call, she finally agreed to give my $100.00 back then took her sweet time sending it. Again, attempted phone calls, messages and multiple people reaching out before she sent the money.
Joanne claimed that she told my planner the night before that Nikki (hair stylist) would be arriving late, this was a complete LIE as I was with my wedding planner for the entire conversation and none of that was mentioned. I also had an email from Joanne confirming the start time, a signed contract with her and even that wasn't enough for her to admit that she messed up. This mess up cost me an hour of my first look and photography time. Joanne also told me that services can run 45 minutes past the contract End Time. I asked her to show me where that was listed in the contract, and she said it's not in the contract. She told me that since my service was done before the End Time, that it wasn't their fault I waited for my bridal party, and the moms to be done their services. Andrea's makeup was the only good thing about the company. Nikki could not make any of the hair styles look anything like what people asked for. Joanne told me that my expectations were too high. I paid over $2000.00 for "too high expectations". That was 7 hair and 6 makeup. Most of the styles were rushed, fell apart and still they were 45 minutes past the agreed contract time.
I could write pages about how awful they were to deal with. I wish I read through all the bad reviews before hiring them because I could have avoided the biggest regret of my wedding day. They ruined my morning, stressed me out and did not make me feel special on my big day.
I attached photos of my trial - what I asked for is the first photo and what Nikki did was the next photo, the other photos are bridal party.
