For me, hair & makeup was one of the most important and careful searches that I had to make when planning my wedding. I knew that if I wasn't happy with my hair/makeup, then I probably wouldn't be happy with how my photos or video came out either. After much research, I came across Melissa, and I am SO GLAD that I did. Perhaps I was more picky than I should have been, but I did not want my hair & makeup to look too "prom-y" or too "beauty contestant-esque." My girls and I also wanted a hair/makeup artist that could make us look glamorous, but still effortless. Natural, but not plain. Melissa and Tammy DID NOT disappoint. They knew EXACTLY what we wanted, and they completely delivered. Every single person at the wedding, and every single person who viewed our photos have asked us for Melissa's information. Some of our guests had their hair/makeup done with different salons, and wished that they knew about Melissa and Tammy. Melissa only uses the finest and newest products (which was another important criteria of mine), and most importantly--- she knows what to do with them. Before I booked with Melissa, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a makeup artist who would use the quality products necessary to keep my skin from becoming dry throughout our November wedding, but I knew from my trial in January that I was in good hands. Our hair and makeup lasted from the very moment we sat in the chair, up until our after party ended and we strolled back to our hotel rooms! Working w/ Melissa/Tammy was such a pleasure and it was as stress-free as it couldve been. Melissa was always responsive with her emails, and the ladies showed up at 745 AM on the dot. I can't wait for another event so that I could have my hair/makeup done w/ Melissa and Tammy again!
