Ashley is wonderful!!! She made me feel more beautiful on my wedding day then I have ever felt. I did a trial with Ashley and she asked me to send her some pictures at the end of the day so she could see how my hair held the curl. In the pictures, I guess my hair was a little frizzy (it almost always is). Ashley remembered this on my wedding day and made sure to put some magic lotion in my hair. No frizzes on my wedding day! Ashley and her awesome assistants did all of the hair and makeup for my mum and 5 bridesmaids. Everyone was delighted with how they look and Ashley’s assistants were lovely to work with. I strongly recommend working with Ashley!!!

We were 2 brides and Ashley had to deal with us for 2 days! She was punctual for both days, humorous and calm (although we weren't always) and did a beautiful job on hair and make-up for both of us. My fiance has rosacea and usually cannot wear make-up however Ashley accommodated this with an excellent foundation that concealed the red while keep her look very natural. Getting done up was one of the more enjoyable and relaxing moments of this hectic weekend and it was due to Ashley's warm demeanor and outstanding skills. Her costs are competitive and well worth it. Thanks again!

Working with Ashley was amazing. She was so flexible and took everything I asked for into account. I was so indecisive about how to wear my hair, that she went above and beyond and styled it a way that I could wear it up for the ceremony and down for the reception. I couldn't believe how good it looked when I took it down halfway through the day! It was actually insane. I woke up feeling stressed and as soon as she showed up, she made me feel completely relaxed. Even my mom, who never ever wears makeup, absolutely loved working with Ashley and loved the result. She is so talented and professional, but honestly felt like a good friend showing up to do my makeup. I will definitely be working with her again!

I highly recommend using Ashley and her team for your big day. I was first interested in Ashley because of her reputation of making brides look naturally beautiful. When we did our trial, she was very friendly, and everyone was VERY VERY happy with my results. Everyone thought I looked amazing and the photos were beautiful. However, I still felt it was too much makeup for me. Also the primer Ashley used didn't work on my oily lids. When Ashley heard this, she dropped off primer samples to my house for me to try, and we found one that worked! She also worked with me via email in the months prior to the wedding, and found a tinted moisturizer that was absolutely perfect for my skin. She even took a look at my engagement pics to see how I photographed. The day of the wedding, she was prompt, and indeed, we were ahead of schedule. My mom needed so little makeup Ashley didn't charge us for her service (my mom looked GREAT!). And each girl got a little touchup bag for the day which was uber helpful. I am VERY judgmental about makeup especially special event makeup, and pay close attention to photos to see if foundation matches etc. I found her work to be flawless. ALSO, my girls hair and makeup looked amazing! WHOOT!

Wonderful! I felt so beautiful, just like a princess.
Ashley is amazing at both hair and make-up and was very accommodating for what myself and my bridesmaids wanted.
