    Amazing hair and makeup artist

    Jenn was wonderful to work with and not once did I question booking her for my wedding. To be able to book a hair AND makeup artist that is so talented in both areas is a score! My girls and I described the hairstyles we were looking for and she executed the styles perfectly. The makeup was gorgeous and lasted all night. My hair and makeup was still together when I woke up the next morning! I would definately recommend Simply Stunning Beauty for your wedding or special occasion.

    Thank you!

    Simply Stunning Hair and Makeup was outstanding. I would recommend them for anyone looking for Hair and Makeup styling. Jenn and her team came to my hotel room downtown Niagara to style hair and makeup for 8 girls on my wedding day. They arrived and setup quickly and made the day flow very easily. They helped each girl with deciding what hair and makeup styles worked best for them and were able to accommodate one of my bridesmaids with sensitivity to makeup products. Everyone looked gorgeous. Thank you Jenn and Shania for making it such a great day!

    Outstanding Experience for my Wedding

    We hired Simply stunning for myself and my bridesmaids hair and makeup for my wedding this year. All of my correspondence was done through email with Jennifer, who is the owner of the company. I haven't even met her and I know we would be friends if we ever get the chance to meet! She was already booked on our date, but her team came and took care of me and all my girls and they were just as amazing to work with. Jennifer took her time in all of her responses, planned out our morning of schedule for me so that I didn't have to worry about it, and the hairstylist and makeup artist that came on behalf of Jennifer, were truly unreal! They made us look so beautiful, the makeup lasted all day and night (even after dancing until 1am I still looked perfect) and the hair styles stayed until the next morning! I honestly will be looking for Jennifer again in the future when I need her and my sister-in-law has already contacted her for her wedding in 2020. Jennifer and her team are the BEST!!!! You will not regret hiring them!

    Do not ruin your wedding day! Turn back now!

    I don't even know where to begin with this but if I have to start somewhere it is to proceed with extreme caution. Your wedding day is such an important day, you don't want it ruined by someone who does not have the skills or expertise she advertises. My experience with Jen began when I was involved in a bridal party for my best friend's wedding. The bride had a seperate agency complete her hair/makeup and the bridesmaids were to be serviced by Jen. I was the first to have my hair done. I showed her soft romantic curls parted to one side and what I got was tight ringlets that looked like I was in a children's pageant (and to be quite frank, I've given myself better hair styles when going out for dinner). I let her know I was not satisfied with the hair style and if she could not get the curls how I wanted I totally understood and we could do something else. She tried to fix my hair THREE times and could not get it right. I finally gave up and decided I would do it myself. I hoped the other bridesmaids would have a different experience. I was completely wrong. All the bridesmaids hated their hair styles, not one ladies hair looked like the picture she showed, all hair styles were done SO POORLY it looked like we had already been dancing the night away for 8 hours and were ready for bed. There were straight pieces in a head full of what was supposed to be curls, sloppy braids, terrible, volumeless hair... I could go on but she just didn't get it. I do not believe that she is a professionally trained hair stylist... there is just no way. The end result was bridesmaids crying in a bathroom, panicking on what to do all while trying to hide it from the bride on her big day. Next up was make up. We thought "Hey, maybe she doesn't do hair well and make up is her thing". NOPE. WRONG. My girlfriend volunteered to go first as guinea pig. The moment we saw her start, we knew we needed a new plan. The eyeliner was crooked, looked nothing like the photo and once again, looked like something we could have done ourselves. WHY PAY $80 FOR SOMEONE TO DO SOMETHING YOU CAN DO BETTER?!!? At this point, we decided it was time to ask her to leave. Take the loss and see if the bride's hairstylist and makeup artist could somehow fix what she ruined. If it was not for these angels, we all would have been completely devastated and uncomfortable in photos. Not only was Jen terrible at what she is supposed to SPECIALIZE in, she was in no way friendly or courteous. She stated she would reimburse the bride for my hair and make up (uhhhhh I would hope so!) yet the bride had to chase her down to remind her of the fact she said she would give a reimbursement. All of this said, I was absolutely shocked to come on here and see that there were ANY good reviews. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE find someone else, don't let her ruin your special day!!

    Simply Stunning Hair & Makeup's reply:

    We are sorry your experience with Simply Stunning did not meet your expectations. We would like to reiterate that when we are shown inspiration photos for styles, we can only recreate to the extent of what we are given to work with. When we are shown photos of extremely voluminous curls with long hair, and extensions, and the client has thin, damaged hair with lots of breakage, the end result will not look the same as the photo, since the hair types are different. Jennifer did the best possible, given the circumstances and we are sorry your expectations did not meet that.
    again, we understand not everyones expectations can be met, however attacking us personally, and questioning our credentials is not necessary or needed. Jennifer has run a successful business for 10 years, and we have learnt along the way it is impossible to please everyone. When hiring hair and makeup artists, we suggest doing research and hiring someone whose style meets and reflects your own, to avoid situations such as this.
    All the best,
    Simply Stunning.

    Awful. Go somewhere else

    Jen was hired to do hair and makeup for myself and four other bridesmaids last week. We all put a lot of thought into what we wanted our hair and makeup to look like leading up to this event. We each had pictures of what we wanted our hair to look like and let me just say.... WOWW….. Not a single bridesmaid was happy with the results. No one’s hair looked like the picture shown, and it seemed as though she wasn’t even trying to make it look how we wanted?
    To be quite honest it was sloppy and rushed. I am not exaggerating when I say I do my hair nicer for an every day look. One of the ladies asked for a braid through the side of her head, and it ended up looking like she took a nap on it. (No hairspray was even applied to her hair)
    My sister told Jen she was not happy with it and asked her to try to fix it. 3 shots at it later and it still didn’t look wedding ready.
    The assistant makeup artist she brought with her was fabulous (Shania)- I have no complaints! She did a fantastic job doing my makeup. Unfortunately, she was not able to stay to do everyone’s face, so Jen took over doing makeup for the remaining 2 ladies.
    Jen not only butchered our hair, but she is not a professional makeup artist either. Sloppy eyeliner, poor installation of eyelashes and absolutely no face contouring (Just pale coverup and some blush).
    After we saw this, we knew we needed help! We had to ask Jenn to leave, which resulted in us paying the other company (Hired to do the Bride and MOH) to fix all of our hair, as well as do the remaining bridesmaids makeup.
    THANK GOD we had another company present. If it weren’t for them we would not have felt comfortable and confident in our photos.
    I highly do not recommend “Simply Stunning” for your big day… This is not the time to have an amateur practicing on you!!!

    We try our absolute best to ensure everyone is happy with our services, but because we are only human this does not always happen. When we are given photos to replicate, we cannot guarantee that it will look 100% identical. different hair types, lengths, thicknesses do different things and well we are not magicians we will replicate a style to the best we can given what we have to work with.
    Jennifer is absolutely not an amateur in her fields of expertise, and when unrealistic inspiration photos are chosen, the expectations are often times, unrealistic.
    We wish you all the best.

    She was awesome and professional

    Jenn was an awesome lady to work with. She was so nice and easy to work with. She was flexible with her trial appointment and with her love of dogs, and was able to accommodate my two dogs for the day off during the main day.

    She was very punctual on the day of and was able to get through all the girls in a timely manner and their hair looked amazing and held firm throughout the day.
    The makeup looked amazing I honestly never looked more stunning (my opinion) she made my husbands mould drop when he saw me. I would use her again. (Although I never plan on getting married again)

    Jenn made me a very happy bride!

    Jenn and her assistant were both wonderfully polite and skilled. My girls and family members all raved about how their makeup looked fantastic and DID NOT BUDGE. And the speed at which they worked was very impressive, we were ready in lots of time for photos.
