"I couldn't have been happier with my make up for my wedding day. I had a trial run with Alana and her hair stylist. Alana listened to what I wanted and changed anything I asked for from the trial run to make sure I was happy for my wedding day. I told her I was very self conscious of my skin and she did a fantastic job, used great make up with high coverage. I was very happy with my make up!
Stella was the hair stylist and didn't seem as organized as Alana. She did understand that I wanted a loose wave for the wedding and we talked about hair extensions to give me that wave that would hold through the night. We talked about different hair sprays and she used one at the trial that kept my hair wavy for 2 days. Well, she forgot my hair extensions at home the day of the wedding, which was 2 hours away so there was no time to go back for them. Then we ran out of time and she started doing my hair 8 minutes before we were supposed to leave for our "first look" She spent about 17 minutes curling my hair. It didn't look anything like the trial run, she used a different hair spray and it was flat by the time of the ceremony. All in all I paid her $242 between the trial run, wedding day, travel fee and tip to have my hair straight by the time of the ceremony.
Definitely go with Alana for make up, again, I couldn't have been happier. But make sure to have Stella's contact information to check in with her the day before your event to make sure she has everything you used or discussed during your trial run."
