Amazing hair/makeup :)
Valerie was great to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone! On my wedding day, she brought an assistant who did makeup for my mom and sister, while Valerie did hair for all three of us plus my makeup. They both did a great job on everything and my hair and makeup lasted throughout the entire night. Valerie was very prompt, professional and flexible with last minute location changes. Her prices were very reasonable and in fact lower than many other hair and makeup artists without sacrificing amazing quality.

Valerie was great to work with! Quick to answer emails and gave detailed answers. I felt very comfortable with her during the trial and she was very perceptive to my wants and vision for my wedding day. I felt no pressure from her to do something specific, but she would make recommendations and was willing to show me, on me, and then take it off if I didn't like it. She is very confident in what she does and uses high quality products. She took great notes so on the wedding day, she knew what to do. I felt very beautiful and was comfortable all day! She also did a fantastic job on my bridesmaids and I don't think I've ever seen them look that beautiful. Valerie is very professional, great at what she does, and has a wonderful relaxing/comforting presense. I would recommend her to any bride!

Valerie’s work is amazing, and very reasonable even including travel fees. She was so helpful answering questions and providing advice leading up to the event, and was a very calming presence when I was dying of nerves all morning! I absolutely loved my hair and makeup, and I didn’t sleep one wink the night before so you can imagine the makeup job that lay ahead for this poor lady. You even get a full sized lipstick and blotting papers!

I could not have chosen anyone better for my wedding day. Valerie was professional, easy-going (and funny!), and listened to everything I had to say - worries and all! If you're looking for someone who knows what they're doing, look no further. Highly recommend! Thanks again Valerie!

I would like to first mention that I had a VERY large bridal party, and Valerie and her partner who came were so flexible and accommodating throughout the entire morning.
As the bride, I wanted an up do so that I wouldn't have to worry about pushing hair out of my face throughout the day. However, my up do was extremely loose and my veil came out literally right after we were announced husband and wife, and I didn't get to wear my veil in most of my pictures. I felt bobby pins poking out of my hair and brushing up against the back of my neck the entire day from ceremony until we went home at 2am after the reception. It was a very irritating feeling throughout the day.
A few of my bridesmaids were constantly pushing my curls back up because it was coming apart. Good thing some of my bridesmaids had a stash of bobby pins and they attempted to fix it as much as they could before we walked into the reception.
The service was really great, and Valerie was extremely kind and sweet the entire morning! However I was very disappointed with my hair. I was CONSTANTLY worrying that it would show in all my pictures and my bridesmaids were constantly trying to fix it throughout the day to ease my stress. Every chance I had, I would push my hair back up because I could literally feel it getting looser and looser. It was just an added worry/stress that I didn't need on my most special day :( A few of my bridesmaids were also not very happy with the way their hair turned out. For a bunch of them, it was their first time ever being a bridesmaid and they felt they needed to fix their hair before we left for the ceremony.
Once again, service, communication, and the fact that Valerie was super duper accommodating was great. However, I was just not happy about my hair at all.
