DISASTER....DO NOT HIRE.

Hair and makeup were 2 hours late, therefore, were not able to finish everyone who paid in advance to get their hair and makeup done. The hairstylist had the worst attitude and appeared inconvenienced to be there. 5th Ave is supposed to be known for their photo matching? Please. This girl couldn't even match a simple updo. Her half-assed attempt at teasing my hair was an absolute joke. I could have done it better myself. We were supposed to be ready at 4:30 and she was still doing my hair.........to make it even better, she technically still had to do 2 other girls hair. One bridesmaid was standing in line to walk down the aisle getting mascara put on. And others never even got their makeup done.

The BEST part....instead of making this right by simply refunding those individuals who did not get their hair and makeup done, they are calling the bride a liar. 5th Ave said they took group photos of everyone smiling once the service was completed. Umm, no. There is no photo. We were not smiling. And the service was not completed.

Pretty ballsy to charge people in advance for a service they didn't perform and REFUSE to reimburse them.......don't you think........?

This company is a sham. They were very responsive until the received my deposit. Once we were a month out from the wedding, I sent in the final contact and photos of what hair and makeup I would like, expecting to get a final bill and schedule back. After three weeks of unreturned emails and phone calls, I decided to cancel the reservation and find a new stylist I wouldn't have to worry about showing up. If you want timely responses and a stress free wedding planning/day, do not go with this company. I have requested my deposit back since it was supposed to go towards services provided that never occurred. I plan to continue emailing to get it back, but I'm doubtful 5th avenue would be professional enough to do that.

DO NOT use this company! I have so many issues I don't even know where to begin. Let's start with responsiveness-- it is practically impossible to reach someone at this company. You pay them, and you never hear anything from them. I waited and waited, and it got to be 3 days before my wedding and I heard nothing. So I had to call multiple times and leave multiple messages until finally the makeup stylist called me back. I made sure to confirm that I was getting hair and airbrush makeup. The day of the wedding, she and the hair stylist showed up an hour before they were supposed to, and then tried to argue with me about the time. Furthermore, I paid for airbrush makeup, and even clarified this with the stylist on the phone 3 days before the wedding. They did not bring any airbrush makeup with them. The makeup artist's response was "oh I thought she called you and told you the girl who does airbrush couldn't come." NO. No "she" or anyone called me about anything, ever. They make you sign a paper upfront that you are "satisfied" with your services.
The makeup artist made me look like a clown. I've had professional makeup done before, and I was shocked at the complete lack of thoughtfulness or skill of the makeup artist. I have blonde hair and blue eyes. I told her I like a natural look, and prefer to wear shades of brown on my eyes, pink blush, and don't like bold brows. She filled in my brows with the darkest brown she had, and drew them into a weird swoop shape. Then she put on pink eye shadow. She had eyeliner smudged all over my face. It looked like I had been crying and my makeup was running. I tried not to be a bridezilla about it, but it was awful. I had to go redo it all myself. I shouldn't have ever let her touch me once I found out they didn't even bring airbrush like they were supposed to! Also, they never brought a hand mirror. I didn't have one. What kind of hair stylist doesn't bring a mirror? I couldn't even really see my style. DO NOT USE

Well when I booked them I couldnt do a trail before because I did a destination wedding. I was very concern about the result because I had a such bad experience with somebody else. So I booked this group. When I was reading the contract I felt very complicated with too many rules. Like you must send to them a picture and all that. It is actually help them and save time. In the end they did a phenomenal job. I love my hair and makeup and all my bridesmaid, mom, mother-in-law love the result. I would def recommend them again. Good luck girls.

Don't. After I filled out the contract following the $100 booking fee, they sent me an invoice which I was required to pay prior to the service, which seems weird for a service - you should pay after you get it. A couple things about the bill - there is a travel fee: $50, they automatically charge an extra 20% as a service charge/gratuity, they also tacked on a PayPal fee. I got them to remove the PayPal fee because I paid with a confirmed PayPal account, but they were VERY SLOW to do it. Also, "long hair" is anything past the shoulders in their book which is an extra $10/person. I wasn't given a start time until about 2 days before the day and then they changed the time and didn't mention it to me - just showed up about 2 hours later than she said. The stylist and the what it said in the contract also did not agree. The contract said not to wash your hair the day of, the stylist preferred it freshly cleaned - which we didn't know until she arrived. The contract also wanted enlarged printed photos for stylists to match, our stylist wanted photos sent to her beforehand via email/text. I did not do a trail because it's not included and their website says it's hard to do - and they're supposed to match pictures. They didn't match the picture and I absolutely HATED my final result. However my hair was done last and I didn't really have time for her to fix it so I got her out of the room and then my bridesmaids and mom fixed it - still didn't like it much. My stylist was very nice though and I thought she did a good job on all my bridesmaids' hair, just not mine. Makeup was fine though, no complaints there. The amount I spent included 3 bridesmaids with long hair + me (long hair) + my makeup.

Everything worked out great. The makeup artist, Kerry, was amazing but the lady who had my extensions and was going to do our hair had car trouble and never made it. Kerry truly went above and beyond to make things right. She did our hair in addition to our makeup and when we were running short on time she followed us to the venue and helped out with absolutely anything she could. On top of that, she insisted on refunding everything we paid for our hair. I was incredibly grateful and impressed with her professionalism. Great experience.

I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I am in this vendor and how frustrating our experience has been with her. We had contacted her about having the makeup done for my partner's sisters who were standing up in our wedding; our wedding is set for 10/15/16 and we had reached out to her in later May or early June 2016. We only needed make up done as they already had hair appointments scheduled. We are getting married in downtown Detroit and wanted to have their makeup done at the venue itself in the bridal suite. We were assured this would not be an issue.
The issues started about 5 weeks ago, soon after the contract and deposit were turned in. We had been trying to get a hold of her to make sure we were all set with our appointments and that everything was on track as well as to schedule our trial run on one of the groomsmaids. When we could actually get her to call us back she repeatedly told us that she was having issues finding someone to meet us in Detroit. We suggested that we do at the hotel outside of the city where the wedding party is staying to broaden our options. We still heard nothing from her for a few weeks. Again, once she actually called us back it was the same excuse: she was having trouble finding someone to take on the job. Fine. We offered to do it at his parent's house, a good hour or so north of the city in the "safe suburbs" to broaden our pool of possible candidates even further. At this point we are now about 3 weeks from our actual date and we STILL have not done a trial run or scheduled a time to do it. Today to top it all off, less than three weeks from our wedding, she cancelled our contract via EMAIL! NO phone call at! To boot, it was a contract cancellation email! No apology for being unavailable or reaching out to us at ANY point during this process. I cannot emphasize enough how unprofessional this vendor is--I have told all of my friends, acquaintances, anyone who would listen to avoid this company/vendor

5th Avenue On Location Hair & Makeup responded with the following comments:

Firstly, "she" is actually three people. We have one person that handles phone calls, one that coordinates the timelines and one that does billing. We informed Jeffery that we have a minimum party of two hair and makeup but he was so nice on the phone we agreed to try to accommodate the day. We all tried. As a company our number one concern is our weddings and our team artists and making sure they are treated fairly for their outstanding skills. We tried our best and three weeks out had no choice but to let them know there wouldn't be coverage since it didn't meet the requirements for 1 1/2 hours of round trip travel to the addresses. We made sure that Jeffrey was well aware of this in advance through our open communication & correspondence he was so nice.

-My experience overall was fine - I wouldn't say I was wowed, but not super disappointed either.
-Prices were better here than most others in the area (southwest NH) especially because they were running a promotion at the time.
-There were a few periods of time where communications seemed to drop off - unanswered emails/questions. Be prepared to be persistent and you will get in contact. In their defense, there was a hurricane running through Florida where their main office is based, but even receiving an email from one of their other offices saying so with an estimated response time would've been thoughtful. (Wedding planning makes us brides a little nervy sometimes, am I right?)
-I read many reviews about makeup artists showing up late (like hours...) and was anxious about this one... my artist was about 20 min late, so in the scheme of things, it was certainly forgivable.
-Two artists showed up, but only one was the main artist. One woman was the assistant and essentially just curled everyone's hair. Then the main artist pinned everyone as desired and did their makeup. It was most definitely not the most efficient way since pinning, spraying, makeup, etc. takes a much lengthier time, but it got done eventually.
-Danielle was good at what she did. I have super dry skin and my makeup lasted all day without getting gross. Planning from opposite coasts also meant I didn't get to do a trial. My hair turned out nice after some adjusting and she was willing to work at it until I was happy.

This was the worst experience while planning my out of town wedding! The company was not responsive to my inquiries and demanded that the balance be paid in full before I even spoke with my stylist. On the day of the stylists arrived late, one was not in the right "state of mind", and my hair looked nothing like the picture I provided. My veil would not stay in and my hair was falling out before the pictures were over.
