Wedding and Event Makeup

I can't recommend Blush Beauty Bar enough. They were professional from start to finish and worked with me to craft my look for the day of. Val did an amazing job with makeup. Kate did a perfect job with everyone's hair. Everyone looked perfect all day long and were so happy with their hair and makeup. They were also super fun to have around for getting ready and to chat with. You won't be disappointed if you go with them for your wedding or other events.

Wedding and Event Hair Styling

This service was great for the wedding. Providing a trial session was fantastic and the stylist came to the venue for the bride on the wedding day at a very reasonable price. The hair was exactly what the bride wanted as the stylist was open to working with her and making adjustments. The makeup was beautiful as well.

These girls were amazing! They listened to everyone and provided what everyone wanted. I felt so beautiful on our wedding day, my hair and makeup was perfect! Sarah and Savannah knocked it out of the park for me! They are all so funny and it just felt natural to be around them.

Wedding and Event Hair Styling

Katie and Sarah were an amazing team to work with! When I contacted them just a couple months before my wedding for makeup and hair services they were quick to respond and give me all the details I needed to make a decision. I had little experience with professional makeup and Sarah helped me understand and refine the look I wanted, adjusting and changing as necessary with an upbeat attitude until we had a beautiful bridal look that fit me. Katie gave me the perfect gorgeous hair for my wedding and was patient with bridal party members who wanted changes to their look at the last minute. They are both welcoming, professional, and give outstanding results!
