Allison B and her team were incredible! I initially did a trial with them before my engagement photos and I was pretty uncertain about what I wanted, but both Alex and Jen were so patient and helpful to help me think through different styles and were so flexible and talented. Day-of, Jen, Alex, Katie, and Ana were each incredible. They were each so patient, listened well, and did amazing work. All of my bridesmaids were so happy with their hair and makeup (I feel like that never happens..). No one needed re-dos or wanted a different style - the girls executed so well on the visions laid out to them. Everyone looked beautiful

I had high expectations but was pretty blown away how great they were. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

I could not have had a better experience with Allison and her team (Alex, Ana and Marisa). Like every bride looking for a "natural" look, she nailed it and I was thrilled with how she did my makeup. She was very professional, organized and easy to get in touch with throughout the weeks leading up to my wedding. Shout out to Alex for doing a phenomenal job on my hair. You guys rock! Thanks for everything!

Allison and her team were amazing from the start! I had Allison doing my makeup and Kerri for hair and they were both absolutely perfect! The trials went great as well! They even did a trial for my mother which she was also in love with. Alex did the bridesmaids hair and did amazingly as well! Everything was perfect, we could not have asked for a better more professional team. They created the exact looks we were hoping for. Thank you Allison, Kerri, and Alex for making my day even more perfect than I could have imagined!

Hair and makeup was one of the things I was most worried about. I wanted a very natural, but glamorous look and was nervous that I'd be stuck with a makeup artist that would make me too done up. After my hair and makeup trial, I knew I had made the right decision by booking Allison and her team. Both Alexis and Alex were easy to work with and collaborative - they understood my feedback and quickly made changes (instead of trying to convince me why what they had done was right). The day of my wedding both ladies were quick and had us ready ahead of schedule. I went with the airbrush makeup and got so many compliments on how natural but beautiful the makeup looked. My hair was exactly what I wanted. Definitely use Allison Barbera for your wedding day!

Don't wait - just book Allison. From start to finish she was so pleasant to work with, and her response time and organization can't be beat (such a plus during the wedding planning process)! I tried two other companies (and did trials with both) before finding Allison, and wish I'd found her first and not wasted the time or money. The organization and scheduling was top notch - and we were so happy with Alexis, Kerri, Jen and Alex. They all showed up early, worked so quickly and efficiently, were professional and warm, and made it such a lovely morning for all of us. Kerri was very patient with me - I'd wanted an updo but felt so uncomfortable in it, and she ended up re-doing my hair into a more natural style. I appreciated it so much. The girls and moms looked beautiful and every single one of us was very happy with the end result. Most importantly, we all looked like the best versions of ourselves. And all ten of us were finished with time to spare - a miracle in and of itself, but a testament to these very talented women.

I wanted haunted by my prom hair for years and was scared to choose a hair stylist because I needed to make sure my wedding hair was just perfect. I changed my hair style about 10 times, not kidding, and Allison and Liz Tucker were so easy going about it! Liz Tucker was the one who actually did my hair and it literally came out perfect!!!!! She not only did a great job but was easy to talk to and assisted with anything we needed the day of the wedding! Thank you Liz!

Allison and her team are fabulous! Allison was the single most responsive vendor I worked with during Wedding Planning. She is great with email, organization, and schedules. We had a by minute hair and makeup schedule and it worked beautifully. I had over 5 other hair and makeup trials and it was not until I met Allison's team did I feel confident that they would deliver day-of. I loved my style and makeup-- thank you. Only hiccup was on the day of, despite me paying the bill in full 2 weeks before the wedding, the lead hair stylists asked my Mom to pay the balance. The next day it was resolved, but it's just not the type of stress you want on the day of. I'm sure that was a one-off incident!

Thanks so much for the review! I'm so glad you were happy with all of the hair and makeup. I do apologize for that miscommunication about the bill. You are absolutely right that it was a one off--literally the only time that has happened in the hundreds of the weddings we have done. Thanks again and congratulations :)

When it comes to planning a wedding, there are a lot of variables that are put into place and many moving parts. Having a vendor that is responsive to your random late night emails, concners and questions, is something every bride wants in her life. For the wedding, each vendor becomes apart of your family as they experience with you a day you will remember forever. Even during the intinial planning process, Allison was extremely helpful and even assisted in setting the schedule for the day of events. Having Allison and her team be apart of our day was simply amazing. We had a lot of people to have hair and makeup done and I was nervous that there just wouldn't be enough time (7 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls, mom, mother in law, godmother in law, all packed in a hotel suite) but Allison put my mind at ease and set the schedule and assigned a hair/makeup team member, giving each girl a time slot, so that everyone had exactly enough prep time without feeling rushed! Her team was professional, attentive and extremely detail oriented for each of my girls and made each of them feel special. We couldn't have asked for a better team to be with us during our girl's morning the day of the wedding. The team made everyone feel so comfortable, they each showed up on time and as scheduled and came prepared, and got right to it. Not having to worry about if all my girls were going to be done, putting my faith in the Barbera team I was able to soak in the moments of the day and enjoy every second! I HIGHLY recommend Allison and her team for any event! They helped make our wedding day, flawless and one to remember.

Allison herself provided makeup for my wedding. She was professional and laid back. I did a trial with her as well, and she responded very well to feedback and in my opinion nailed our wedding makeup. There were 6 of us who got our makeup done, two of us being brides. We all looked like a beautifully elevated version of ourselves. We loved our looks, and her service was perfect! She fit right in with everyone, and we appreciated her go with the flow approach. Allison truly brought out the best in all of us!
