    Wonderful Hair and Makeup

    They came to our hotel and managed to get us all ready to go with touch-up kits despite the small space. Gave instructions on what to do if we cried, and even redid one hair style as we didn't really like it without complaint. Highly recommend! For perspective there were 4 Bridesmaids, myself and my mom.

    Reliant, experienced and super personable!

    From start to finish Erika was amazing to work with, she was affordable, adaptable and efficient.
    She recommended a trial run for hair and make-up (this is worth every penny). What I liked about this was she included the trial in her total price (no hidden fees), whereas other vendors I was looking at would charge for the trial on top of the price for wedding day hair and make up.
    Erika was super helpful when it came to my make up. I usually don't wear a lot of makeup and was worried that I was going to come out looking cake faced. She was able to give me a timeless, natural look that looked great in my photos.
    My overall experience with Erika was amazing. I would recommend her to any future bride!

    Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:

    Thank you Jackie for everything, including this great review! I appreciate the time and consideration that you took to write this. I had such a wonderful time working with you. You and your bridal party were so fun and friendly! I’m so glad you chose to work with me.

    Not bridal quality!

    I had a hair trial booked with Erika; she came to my house and started by curling my hair. Right away I could tell that doing hair was not her full-time job as the way that she handles hair seemed awkward. My hair was repeatedly put into knots and tangles during the curling process. When she began my up-do, my part was not centered or straight, my hair was barely pinned and just hanging. When she told me she was done and to go check in the mirror, I couldn’t believe that she thought my hair was “wedding day worthy”. If you aren’t great at doing your own hair, then perhaps the services she provides might be acceptable for you; however, if you are someone who is into glam and beauty, her work likely won’t meet your standards. Most disappointing $80 I’ve spent.

    Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:

    I’m very sorry that you were unhappy with your pre-wedding hair trial. A trial is by nature not bridal quality hair styling but if I had thought you were this disappointed, or you had let me know that you were this disappointed, I would have gladly done your trial for free rathe than offering to give you another trial for free in the future. You could have, and still can, contact me and I would be happy to offer you a refund as I would never want someone to feel like their money was wasted and I understand it’s frustrating to feel like you didn’t get the results you wanted or expected, however, that’s why we have trials, in order to make sure everything is a fit before the actual wedding. I do agree with you that the style you picked was not my specialty, we all have our strengths and clearly that style was not mine on that day. Again I’m sorry you had a negative experience at your trial and hope you find someone who is a better fit for your hair styling needs on your big day.

    Fantastic hair and make-up artist

    Erika did a wonderful job with my hair and make-up and services for a few of the other girls. My hair looked exactly how I wanted it to, she really does a great job. I requested an up-do and it lasted all day in photos and through the night dancing. She is also super nice and fun to chat with as all of us were getting ready!
    Erika was very professional and responsive to emails, her rate is very reasonable compared to most Calgary based hair and make-up artists.
    Highly recommend Erika!

    Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:

    Thank you for your support and wonderful review Lindsay! I had lots of fun with you and the girls on your wedding morning too and am very glad you were happy with everything (I always want to make sure those up-do’s last so I have my tricks to make sure they do!) Thanks again.

    Excellent Hair and Makeup

    Myself (bride), my 4 bridesmaids and my mother all got our hair and makeup done through Perfection hair and makeup. We are absolutely thrilled with our hair and makeup and the professionalism of the ladies. Both Erika and Joelle were on time in the morning and everyone’s hair and makeup was done in time.

    Stress-free and professional

    Erika was great to work with! I don't normally wear much makeup or style my hair, but Erika was able to take the little input I gave her to create a great look. She is very professional and made the whole process stress-free.

    Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:

    Thank you Pam for your kind review and for choosing me to be a part of your big day! It’s a wonderful complement when I hear that I was able to help keep your morning stress-free because I really want getting styled to be a fun and enjoyable experience for the bride’s I work with!

    Erika was so wonderful to work with! She came to my house and did my hair and make-up for our engagement photos. I loved it all; it was the perfect look for what we had planned. A week before the wedding she did my hair trial and we came up with 2 looks that we had essentially planned to mix for the big day. I didn't do another makeup trial for our wedding day as I knew I wanted it to look just like it did for our engagement photos. She was fun to hang out with and was so relaxed (which helped me to stay calm haha). She also did my bridesmaids hair and makeup as well as the flower girl's hair and each look was so unique and perfect for each girl. Overall, she made getting ready go so smoothly and I love the way everything came together. My hair and makeup definitely looked great all day. I'd highly recommend her services! Thanks again Erika!

    Thank you Krystle for the lovely review and for uploading so many amazing photos! You all look gorgeous and it looks like you had such a great wedding day and and a lovely time at your engagement shoot too. Thank you for letting me be a part of these special days in your life!

    AMAZING - fantastic work and great customer service

    I’m sure so many people can understand how crazy the last couple years have been trying to plan a wedding. Erika was absolutely amazing, she responded so quickly as I had to change my date and trials multiple times due to covid and was she was so understanding. On top of that, her work is unbelievable. The hair and makeup she did had so many of my guests just in awe and I was so pleased with it!! By the day of the wedding I was able to just relax as she did her thing because I had absolute faith that her work was going I be amazing — and it was ! I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am that I booked her ! Photos to come but do NOT hesitate to book her now 🤗🤗 thanks Erika!!

    Wonderful Experience

    Erika did an amazing job for my wedding. Both my mother and I had such a wonderful experience. Erika listened to what we wanted and was able to create a beautiful hairstyle and makeup look for my wedding day. Erika was friendly and professional and even included a touch up kit in case I needed to fix my makeup during photos.

    Thank you Erika!

    What a wonderful experience it was to have Erika be a part of our wedding day. I looked at many different hair/makeup vendors, but they were either overpriced, had iffy reviews, or I wasn’t hugely impressed. But with Erika, she was very reasonably priced and her work was just beautiful. I am SO happy with how our hair and makeup looked on the big day. She was professional, always on time, flexible and easy to chat with. Thank you Erika for making us all look and feel beautiful. Highly recommend!

    Perfection Hair and Makeup by Erika's reply:

    Thank you for the beautiful photos and taking the time to write such a thoughtful review Julia! I had a wonderful time meeting and working with you, your bridal party and your lovely mom!! I’m so happy that you were pleased with how everything turned out and that you chose me to be a part of your wedding day. Your support and review are very appreciated:)
