    Disappointing

    It feels almost inappropriate to review Miranda as she cancelled on me 48 hours prior to my wedding. She emailed me to tell me that she had an “urgent opportunity with her full time job” that she was unable to move. I can appreciate that these bumps happen but receiving an email 48 hours prior was certainly disappointing, to put it mildly. I did appreciate that she set up Bellamore Beauty, though it is in her contract to do so if she is unable to attend. I wish that it could have at least been a phone call as I feel like that is more personal. It was stressful since I was going to have someone show up on my wedding day who I didn’t have a hair trial with. I paid Miranda to come do my hair trial and in the end, she did not even do my wedding hair. I had a bit of an off putting feeling last year when I had difficulty connecting with her due to the pandemic forcing us to reschedule which I should have listened to, especially after seeing some reviews of other brides in similar situations. That being said, I can’t recommend Alannah Hilton enough who is contracted through Miranda to do wedding make up. Thankfully she was unaffected by this and was able to still come do my make up which I was very appreciative of.

    100% Recommend!!

    I first seen Miranda's work at my friends wedding this summer. I was planning my own wedding at this time and reached out to my friend right away to ask who her hairstylist was. Her work was so beautiful I couldn't resist booking her for my own wedding! So I did and couldn't be happier with the work she did on my wedding day! She completed 6 Bridesmaids, 2 Mothers and myself within 3.5-4 hours! She was very quick at replying and very accommodating with changing times and location of services! If anyone is looking for a professional and reliable hairstylist for an event! I would highly recommend Miranda!!

    MSlay Studio's reply:

    Wow Chelsea thank you so much for taking the time to leave me such a lovely review, your day was so special I am so honoured I got to be a part of your morning!

    Most important money I spent to make my morning of my wedding go smooth and without any stress.

    Miranda was wonderful to have on my morning of my wedding. She brought a calm and professional environment with her. I felt so confident in her ability to deliver my hair and makeup. She was fun and every brides dream hype girl. She stayed in the background really well, engaging in convo when people initiated it but was respectful of the moments happening with the bridal party. I would recommend her a million times over

    MSlay Studio's reply:

    Claire! Your day was truly one to remember.
    Ive never felt so much love in a room and Im forever grateful to have been there for your special morning!

    Stole my deposit and refused to perform services

    Miranda & team were supposed to do hair and makeup for my June 27, 2020 wedding, but instead she stole my deposit and refuses to respond to emails. I’ve included quotes from her emails below.
    My original contract stated that there would be hair for 6 ladies and makeup for 8. When COVID-19 restrictions were put in place, I reached out to ask her what she would be able to accommodate under the circumstances. On May 4, she said:
    I do believe by late June I will be okay to do hair for weddings but I don’t believe makeup will be able to safely or legally work yet.


    At that point I waited to see what the government restrictions looked like closer to our wedding date. When I followed up with her on June 7 she said:
    I will absolutely be able to accommodate to original 6 ladies needing hair including your hair and have you ladies ready for 4:00 (will be there for 12:00 to start styling).
    Unfortunately,
    I will not be able to provide makeup contract bookings for this year as my makeup artists also have other responsibilities that can change with covid changes and aren’t able to commit to any dates for 2020.

    I then pointed out to her that our ceremony was actually at 3:00 – our contract had 2:00 as our deadline to be ready. She responded with:
    I wont be able to accommodate that timing as I have now adjusted your timing to only accommodate 3 ladies and have moved another rescheduled booking to 10am on the same date for another small event.

    I am only available at 12:00 on this date now,
    Please let me know how you would like to move forward I am not sure what is going to be best for you on this day to keep it running smoothly Im sorry Im not able to be more flexible.

    Obviously this didn’t work for our wedding. After a lot more back and forth she finally bailed on me, saying:
    Im sorry but I feel like truthfully we just are not a good fit and it has been alot of work to try and please you and accommodate your changes.
    I will be discussing deposit options with my lawyer in the coming months to see legally how I can help provide some funds back.

    She did not return my deposit, and so I am taking her to small claims court to recoup my deposit. Anyone considering booking her beware!!

    Highly recommend!

    Miranda is such a kind and talented stylist! My wedding party and I were initially drawn to the budget-friendly prices for the high quality styling, but I was sold on the customer service and personalized experience.
    Miranda is a wonderful listener who considered my ideas and made sure I felt confident and happy. She carefully addressed the thinning area around my bangs and made sure the hair would stay in place without being uncomfortable.

    When Miranda did my hair for the engagement shoot, I felt beautiful. I was so impressed that the curly waves held up after several hours of skating and strolling at Lake Louise during winter. I have thick and long hair that usually straightens out right away, but Miranda’s knowledge of hair and the products that keep it healthy was fantastic!

    Due to the pandemic, my husband and I decided to have an intimate legal ceremony in the backyard with our parents as witnesses. Once again, Miranda was able to respond to the situation and my ideas without hesitation. Since my wedding dress didn’t arrive in time and I resorted to wearing my bridal shower outfit, I had a different hairpiece and vision for Miranda to create. She was so kind and positive and really made the crazy day feel fun and special. She gave my mother-in-law and I some tips and worked so quickly, too! Within no time at all, my hair was styled and Miranda even did a bit of styling for the groom :) It was a lovely experience working with Miranda!

    We can’t wait to have Miranda do our hair again for our larger wedding with loved ones.

    I highly recommend Miranda to do your hair for any occasion :)

    The Journey

    My wedding isn’t until November, but I had booked MSlay Studios a few months ago because I was so impressed with her prices, responsiveness, and gallery. I’ve been looking for a new stylist to do my hair - and I thought, why not try going with the person who’s going to do my hair on the day of? I’m so glad I did. Never have I had someone put so much thought and care into something that is an insecurity for me (my hair). Right from the get go, I was comfortable and felt confident that I would leave the chair happy; and I did! I’m so excited to have Miranda be doing my hair now and mine and my girls’ hair for such an important day. 10/10, absolutely recommend. 😊♥️

    MSlay Studio's reply:

    Alli it has been such a pleasure getting you ready for your special day and watching your vision come together, it will be such an incredible day.
    Thank you for choosing me!

    Wedding Morning Bliss with MSlay Studio

    Miranda and Alanna, a POWERHOUSE team, beat me to the venue on the morning of my wedding. I walked into the change room (30mins late...) and they were already well on their way to glamourizing two of my bridesmaids. 2 out of 10 women they had on their to-do list that day.

    I should have begun with that - I had 10 women whom all needed hair, and makeup, done on the morning of my wedding. 7 of which who are all married, and who all skeptically looked at me when only two women showed up at 7am to get them all ready for my 2:30pm ceremony.

    I smiled, drank a mimosa, and chatted leisurely with them all - I had zero doubt in my mind that they’d be ready, and looking fabulous. Miranda and Alanna - the glam wedding dream team - had done a trial with me about two weeks earlier. They came to my house, and giggled and chatted with me and made my vision a reality. I showed them photos of what I wanted, and they amplified them to fit my personality. I knew their skill level, and I knew they took their timelines and work seriously. I was a very relaxed bride.

    Each of my bridesmaids had their own unique vision of how they wanted their hair and makeup, and MSlay studios was patient and understanding with them all. The end result? All of us. And I mean ALL. OF. US. Bride (me) included. Had our hair and makeup done by 12:30... if not earlier. I would like to tell you I wasn’t smug about this, but that’d be a total lie. My bridesmaids were all dumbstruck by both the quality and speed of their hair and makeup. The amount of people who complimented our hair and makeup for the rest of the day was overwhelming.

    Let’s chat LONGEVITY of the hair and makeup. Cuz gals, I get it. You want to dance. You want to cry. And lord knows you’re going to sweat your butt off on that dance floor. MY HAIR AND MAKEUP STAYED FLAWLESS. I had RIVERS of tear flowing down my face during the ceremony - makeup remained perfect. Not even a speck of
    black on my cheek. I danced and jumped and hugged every human being in sight at my wedding - and my hair remained perfectly intact until the last possible moment (ie: when I took
    It out to have a much needed post-wedding shower).

    MSLAY STUDIOS IS REMARKABLE. I adore Miranda and Alanna so outrageously much and words don’t do justice to how highly I would recommend them to you!!!!!!

    MSlay Studio's reply:

    Wow. Bree how am I even going to be able to put my response to this into words.
    Thank you, for your time to leave us this beautiful review and in such great detail.
    We are so honoured and grateful to have been a part of your special day, we wish you both a life full of so much happiness and love.

    The appreciation I feel for having met you and been a part of your wedding day is so hard to put into words, truly moved by seeing the love you two have for eachother and thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Absolutely Perfect

    This review is wayy overdue as I got married back in September 2019 (sorry). I couldn't be happier with how my hair turned out on my wedding day. Miranda is so sweet, accommodating and talented. My bridal hair trial went perfectly but days before my wedding I changed my mind regarding my hair accessories and asked for my hair to be styled differently. Miranda didn't mind at all and nailed the new style too. Not only was I very happy with my hair but she also styled my 4 bridesmaids and my mom's hair. Everyone had a different style and all of the girls were happy. My mom has baby fine hair and her updo lasted all day and night. My curls lasted into the next day which was great because I woke up the day after the wedding still feeling gorgeous. I honestly can't wait to have my hair styled by Miranda again and would recommend her to anyone who wants to look naturally beautiful on their wedding day.

    MSlay Studio's reply:

    Megan thank you so much for leaving me such a wonderful review late or not it means so much to me! Your wedding day was so incredibly special and I look forward styling you and your moms hair again soon!
