    Afterglow Studio Review

    My wedding day wouldn't have been possible without Afterglow Studios. They were professional, flexible, understanding, and tried their best to meet my needs. Value was a little on the steep side but needless to say, I was satisfied with my look and my mothers look. I would've also liked communication to be faster, emails were received within a week, but it was understood the amount of high volume of emails and requests that were sent in after covid. Overall, they made me look like a bride and I was very happy with my look.

    Afterglow Studios's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review Tuka! It was such a pleasure working with you and your mother. I do apologize that my responsiveness was not in par with your expectations. I appreciate your understanding of the volume of daily inquiries and requests received amidst the busiest wedding season in decades. Thank you for trusting me with your big day!

    Neetu is who you want!

    Neetu was my makeup artist for my wedding this past April. I completely, and wholeheartedly recommend her services to you! We did a trial and day of hair and makeup. I 10000% percent recommend to folks to take the opportunity for a trial, as it's a great opportunity to get to know Neetu, and to collaborate on ideas, try out the looks and make any adjustments for the actual big day. Neetu transformed me into a Punjabi bride, and I felt absolutely fabulous. My make up stayed all day and so did my hair and accessories. She was prompt in all of her communications, administration and arrival times. She was also very helpful in letting me know what would work for my skin texture, how to keep the skin matte for all the flash photography, and gave me skincare prep ideas before the big day. Neetu also was realistic about the issues with editing these days and validated that it is normal for skin to have texture, all the while doing a great job of making me look my best. Her team of contractors also did an amazing job on my family members hair/make-up. She had me ready in time for my photoshoot that morning and stayed with me until it was time to leave so that I could be securely pinned for the gurdwara. Neetu was a lovely person to connect with and I appreciated who she was as a person, which is important when spending lots of time with your make up artist. Neetu does amazing work, and the pictures of Afterglow Studios really do speak for themselves - with her fabulous editorial and bridal looks. Thank you Neetu, you're amazing. All the best to you and I hope we get to work together again one day soon!

    Amazing hair and makeup!

    Neetu and her team did an amazing job with the hair and makeup of my entire bride squad! We got so many compliments throughout the day. Neetu really listens to what you want and knows all the right questions to ask to make sure she’s giving you exactly what you need! There wasn’t a single thing I would have changed about my hair and makeup for the big day.

    Afterglow Studios's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Zahra! It was so lovely bringing your vision to life and getting to work with you! Thank you for having me as your artist and putting your trust in me.

    I have never looked more beautiful

    The entire experience of working with Neetu and team for the ‘Queen Bee’ bridal package was amazing. All my bridesmaids, mother and mother in law never looked more beautiful as we all got our hair and makeup done through afterglow studios. The makeup trial, touch up kit and extreme flexibility of services even during the pandemic were beyond expectations. Bridal makeup was so beautiful I felt confident and 🤩 pretty. Never received so many compliments in my life!!

    Afterglow Studios's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Marushka! It was such a pleasure working with you for your big day, you looked absolutely stunning. I'm thrilled to hear you were happy with everyone's look and I'm happy to hear love prevailed through the pandemic. Wishing you all the best for a long, happy marriage 💑

    Showered With Compliments!

    Afterglow Studios is amazing! We booked for my sister's wedding a few years and loved her so much that we booked for my wedding this year. Neetu is amazingly skilled at what she does! I got so many compliments on my makeup and she tailored it to exactly what I wanted. It came out beautiful in person and in photos and turned out exactly how I was hoping! Neetu is so kind and works hard to understand your vision and give you exactly what you're looking for. The studio was so prompt with communication throughout the booking process, checking in beforehand to give skin tips and had a very thorough COVID-19 cleaning protocol which made me feel super safe. They were also super flexible with last minute scheduling changes due to getting married during a pandemic and I can't recommend them enough!

    Afterglow Studios's reply:

    Thank you so much for the lovely review Rabea! It was such a pleasure getting you ready for your wedding. You were such a breeze to work with and a stunning bride! I'm so happy to have been a part of your wedding. Thank you for putting your trust in Afterglow Studios.

    Disappointed

    When I first contacted Neetu she was wonderful. My first meeting went so well I knew I wanted to use her on my wedding day. I booked my consultation and that went good too. I liked the look we came up with and she was very reasonable with her pricing. On the day of my wedding she came over on time which I greatly appreciated however after that is when the disappointment began. Neetu was not friendly or personable. She and her hair stylist barely spoke to me. Turns out after dressing me I did not like my look at all but didn’t even have time to let her know because they were packed up and gone. Everyone I look at my wedding pictures I am so disappointed that I have made arrangements to do another photo shoot using another makeup artist.

    Afterglow Studios's reply:

    Hi Shazia! Thank you for leaving us a review and your feedback. Firstly, congratulations on your new business into counselling and maternity. I apologize that you felt unsatisfied with your booking as that is not the service we strive to provide. I did reach out to you to discuss after this review was posted to remedy the situation and also took a look into all the details from your booking last year. I apologize if you felt me or my hair artist's demeanor was not friendly. On the day of bookings, we are focused and concentrated on ensuring clients are ready on time for their big day. It is a very different setting than trials or consults as with those we don't have time constraints but in no way are we intentionally or have ever intended to be unfriendly to a client.

    For my business I have intentionally included a couple of procedures to ensure client satisfaction, both are listed in our contract. The first being we do not require the final payment in advance but 24 hours after services are rendered and the second being artists will not leave the premise or allotted booking time until client has acknowledged satisfaction. These are implemented because I want all clients to be satisfied always; hence, they are clearly listed on our contract. For your booking even if we were packed, I do see a cash payment at the end of the booking but if you were unsatisfied I would have appreciated being told what needed to be corrected because to hear that a client disliked their look so much that they are disappointed looking at their wedding photos is heartbreaking.

    Since you had booked for a non-bridal hair on your wedding day it also left your booking in a grey area. For brides and bridal services, we will remain on site until they change to do final touch-ups if their hair needs to be fixed after putting on clothes, do adjustments while photographer is there, etc. but this is not the case with a non-bridal. I understand you may have felt we should not have packed up as soon as we heard acknowledgment of satisfaction because then you later realized you didn't not like your look and we were gone. We did remain on your booking for the booked two hours and this would have been avoided had it been done at a bridal package as we would have remained on location for an additional hour. Additionally, we highly encourage all brides to have trials for both makeup and hair. And during trials we highly recommend clients to bring accessories and/or outfit pieces so they can fully envision their wedding look. In your notes and images from your booking, I see your makeup trial images in regular clothes with no hair trial which can make it difficult to envision what your final look will be.

    Please feel free to contact me and hopefully I can assist you with improving this situation. I apologize for how you are feeling and hope you understand that it is/was not mine or my business's intention. Thank you.

    Amazing results and customer service!

    I highly recommend Neetu and her team for bridal makeup services. I had my bridal makeup done as well as 4 bridesmaids and my mom. Not only were the prices reasonable, the results on the day of were stunning! We received a lot of compliments on our hair and makeup and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. As a bonus, her and her team were so fun to work with and helped ease my pre-wedding stress with their jokes and reassurance. It was so nice to get ready in the comfort of my own home and have them bring their kits to us.

    Leading up to the wedding, Neetu helped me figure out what I wanted my makeup to look like during the makeup/hair trial. I don't wear makeup very often so I was anxious about looking over-done or not looking like myself. Neetu took the time to work with me and help me figure out what looked best, and made sure that I felt that everything was perfect! She did a natural look for all of us and made us all look gorgeous. Exceptional customer service AND results. Neetu was super flexible and very responsive over email, and we both communicated our expectations well with each other which made the day of the wedding such a breeze. Thank you Neetu and team! I'd love to work with you again in the future and would recommend them to anybody looking for makeup for their wedding!

    Thank you so much for your kind words Bea! It was such a pleasure working with you for your big day and helping your vision come to life. You are a dream client who made our jobs so easy, you made sure to follow all the notes and details we sent you and that makes such a difference for us 🙂. We all had such a blast working with you and we were actually just reminiscing about the bridal group who was graced with Jodine's singing. You all were fabulous and I'm so grateful to have met such a fabulous person such as yourself! Thank you for choosing us.
