I cannot recommend this place enough! Sarah and Hung were so responsive to my every need during the trial and lead up to the wedding. On the day, Sarah, Hung and Milian were incredible - they took extra time to make sure I was 100% happy and they made every single one of my bridesmaids look even more stunning than they already are! It was so convenient having hair and makeup through one company and it was EXCELLENT value for money. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I honestly cannot rave about Blush and Braids Beauty enough! Sarah was super easy to work with and communicated everything perfectly. Alyssa (hair) and Jeannette (makeup) absolutely KILLED it. My bridesmaids couldn’t stop telling me how much they loved them and I couldn’t agree more.

Blush and Braids Beauty was amazing! They did my hair and makeup for my wedding and I loved the way I looked! They also did my bridesmaids hair and makeup and they all looked stunning! My makeup stayed on all night and even through my tears of joys, my hair doesn’t normally keep a curl well but the curls stayed in all night even through my jumping and dancing! If I ever have another event to go to I will definitely be getting my hair and makeup done with Blush and Braids Beauty!
