Allison did my bridal makeup, both mothers and one bridesmaid, and we also had Alex, one of her stylists, do all of our hair (and the second bridesmaids).
I had chosen somewhere else for hair initially but in the end I'm glad I switched over to Allison's company for hair in addition to makeup. The trial was great and easy, and Alex the stylist listened to what I wanted and addressed my concerns for my hair falling out of the style. She explained how she was constructing the style, and it did hold up both on trial and wedding day!
For makeup, I wanted a natural look: I wanted to look like me, just with a little more oomph and less flaws. She did it perfectly. So natural! Plus, Allison is a great person so talking to her while in the chair was also a great way to relax a little on my big day!

Thank you, Allison and Alex!.

Congratulations, Lisa! And thanks for taking time out of your mini-moon to write this review. Alex and I had a great time with you and your group. Everyone was fun to work with, and I loved my perfect (and warm) bedroom "office." You were so wonderful to work with. Thanks for choosing us for your wedding hair and makeup!

Jen did my bridal makeup for my wedding on October 15th - she and Katie traveled to CT to do makeup for my bridal party, including MOB & MOG. They were both fantastic and Allison was such a pleasure to work with in organizing everything for our wedding in the months leading up - extremely professional, responsive and friendly throughout. I did a trial with Jen in June in their Newport offices - she had a great energy and I knew she'd be someone who I'd be happy to have around while getting ready for the wedding. The day of, Jen had pictures from my trial ready to go and gave me concealer and lipstick to take for the day. I loved how my makeup came out and so did the rest of my bridal party - I would highly recommend Allison Barbera Beauty to any bride. Thank you Jen, Allison & Katie!

Allison and her team (Kerri, Ana and Emily) were one of the main reasons my wedding day was so magical.

Allison was so easy to work with-she was very organized, responsive and on the day of, prompt and efficient. She is truly an artist at what she does. Kerri, who did my hair, was so meticulous, making sure everything looked perfect and that I was happy with how everything looked. The finished product looked like a masterpiece. I received so many compliments on how stunning I looked and at was all due to Allison and Kerri. I truly felt like a princess on my wedding day. And my hair and make-up looked at 11pm like they did at 11am. Now that's magic.

Not only did the team do a great job on my hair and make-up but also on all of my bridesmaids as well as my mother and mother-in-law. My mother never gets her make-up done and she was so happy with what Allison did and she looked 20 years younger!

I cannot say enough great things about these four women! I had a terrible first hair and make-up trial and found Allison and her team after searching for someone else with only months left til the wedding and I am so happy I found them! The day wouldn't have been the same without them!

Allison and her team were AMAZING! Allison was always quick to respond, incredibly organized, and super talented. My hair and makeup as well as my bridesmaids and mom's looked incredible. My makeup didn't budge even though I cried a million times, my hair stayed in place through all my dancing. If you're thinking of using Allison and her team don't hesitate. Book them now!

Finding Allison was a dream come true. She communicates easily and promptly, which helps immensely for a bride-to-be planning for the big day. I officially met her for my makeup trial and she greeted me professionally and warmly. My mother and I immediately fell into conversation with her as if we've known her for years. During the trial and on the big day Allison and Katie made my mother, maids of honor, and myself feel at ease and relaxed. We barely needed any final touch-ups because the makeup was flawless. We all felt and looked radiantly beautiful. The makeup lasted all afternoon and into the night...so impressive. I've never worn fake eyelashes before and the ones Allison uses are individually placed to make it look natural. I felt like a queen! Allison also provided me with oil absorbent sheets and everyone who got makeup done got a little tube of the lipstick and brush for reapplying throughout the event. Thank you Allison for a wonderful and flawless experience!

I can’t thank Allison Barbera and her team (Kerri, Jen, Alexis and Emily) enough for being part of my big day! They all did a phenomenal job! Allison is a pleasure to work with. She is professional and extremely responsive. She answered all my questions and even provided some additional suggestions (both beauty and Newport related, since I’m from out of town) which were quite helpful. And her team made me and my girls look and feel fabulous! They were all extremely talented at hair and make-up, and were so incredibly friendly. It made the getting ready part of the day relaxing, but also fun at the same time. I wanted to give a special shout out to Kerri, who did such a wonderful job on my hair (and I have a lot of it, so I know it’s not easy). I gave her a few changes that I wanted to make from my trial to the wedding day and she nailed it. I absolutely loved it! And my girls all looked amazing as well. Thank you again, Allison, Kerri, Jen, Alexis and Emily!!! You are all truly a delight to work with!

I LOVED working with Allison. She is absolutely amazing!! I showed her a few pictures and described (probably not so well) what I envisioned for my wedding makeup. She blew it out if the park! She is so easy to work with, I had zero concerns. I had someone want their makeup done last second and she fit her right in no questions! So unbelievable. Also, a few weeks before the wedding she sent me an email with the dos and donts of beauty before the wedding...locals vendors for spas, spray tans etc. Which was beyond helpful! She's fun, professional, knowledgeable, so so talented and will hands down make you the most beautiful bride. Her entire team did an awesome job. You will not regret working with her!! She's the best.
