I did a trial with Antonette and was disappointed in the quality of hair styling. She didn't texturize my hair, she just put it up as it had air dried naturally. It left my hair looking lackluster and unpolished -- you could see many wrinkled pieces. She also didn't listen to what I wanted particularly well (she also openly jokes about how she's very strongly opinionated -- not the best vibe for a relaxing wedding day). When she finished with the hairstyle, I tried to nicely tell her that it wasn't what I was looking for, but she very assertively told me why her style was better than what I was asking for -- so at the time, I let it go because I didn't want to have to be very assertive to find a hairstyle that I was happy with. Ultimately, her inability to work with me and find a style that I would be happy with is why I didn't choose to go with her. I originally asked for a second trial, which she was going to charge for. When I said that I was choosing someone else, she offered a second trial for free. The make-up was ok -- seemed a little stereotypical and not the elegant look I wanted. Her airbrush usage was also really heavy, making it look unnatural. The eye lashes were one strip, as opposed to individual pieces, which don't look as natural. I felt like I had spider legs coming out of my eyes (I did have lashes on my wedding day that felt natural, so I know there are better versions out there. Find someone that puts them on in individual pieces). Her assistant is super nice, helpful, and reasonable. I did feel bad for not going with her but had to find someone that would listen to me and make me feel great on my wedding day.

Such a wonderful group of ladies. They do such a beautiful job with the airbrush make up, natural shades that highlight individual features, and offer eyelashes as well. You feel like a model at a photoshoot and the pictures turn out wonderful.

I worked with Dana instead of Antonette, and while I really liked what she did with my hair and makeup, some of my wedding party were not so happy with their own results. Some of the makeup was way over the top, such as for my mom who wanted a very minimal, barely-there look, but instead got a ton of makeup that almost looked ridiculous. All of the hair looked gorgeous though and there were no complaints there. Other than that, the ladies were so fun to talk to and helped a ton with the pre-wedding jitters.

Love, love, loved working with Antonette. She was so fantastic and is so skilled and talented with airbrushing and hair. We had 5 bridesmaids, the bride, and the 2 moms and everyone looked fantastic. We had people who knew exactly what they wanted and people who had no clue what they wanted and everyone looked gorgeous. Even my mom, who has very thin, fine hair looked like she had thick hair and she could have passed for my sister with how well the makeup looked.
My sister-in-law has been in at least 4 weddings and she commented that Antonette and her crew did better than any other team she had worked with.
The weather was dicey the morning of the wedding and Antonette kept me posted that they were going to be late (by 30 minutes), but they managed to get back on track and get everything done on time without sacrificing quality.
Antonette would be in the middle of working on someone and notice a strand out of place on someone else, so she would grab them and fix it really quick. She wanted everything to be perfect and it absolutely was. Our makeup stayed all night, even though we were all sweating and though it would have melted off in the middle of the night.
Antonette is a little pricey, but she is completely worth it. You cannot go wrong with her.

Antonette was a joy to work with! She and her entire team are very organized and responsive. Leading up to the wedding, Antonette stayed in touch and made sure everything was set up so it would run smoothly the day of. And it did. The day of my wedding she and her team did hair and make up for 7 bridesmaids, myself and both moms. And everyone looked great! Her team stayed after everyone was done until we left the hotel to make sure everyone's hair was perfect and make up looked great! Thanks again Antonette!!

Antonette was absolutely amazing - she did my hair and makeup for my wedding day in May and people are still commenting on how beautiful it looked. She was very focused and detailed during my trial, listening to what I wanted and then making suggestions as to what would look best on me. The wedding day, everything was perfect, and she and her assistant did a wonderful job on all my bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law. They were so upbeat and fun that it made the getting-ready experience really great. I wish I could have Antonette do my hair and makeup everyday!!

Antonette is simply amazing! She did the makeup for my bridesmaids and a few of my family members at my house the day of my wedding. I felt comfortable with Antonette immediately when I first met her at my trial. I am not someone who wears a ton of makeup so me this was a new experience. Antonette did an amazing job of combining my everyday makeup look with the perfect wedding look. She takes such great in care in making sure that you look perfect pictures. Also, everyone's hair stayed put all night long. We were driving on golf carts and taking pictures outside and not one piece of hair fell out of place. I would recommend Antonette's services to anyone who needs their make up done for weddings or any occasion. Antonette also comes to you on your wedding, so it takes the stress out of making appointments and running around the day of your wedding.

Can't even begin to say how wonderful Antonette and her team is!! I loved everything about my hair and makeup. I went for a trail before hand and fell in love with her. My mom also had her hair and makeup done and still talks about it! No need to think twice, she will make you look and feel like a million bucks! Very happy :)

Antonette did my hair/makeup and my 5 bridesmaids for my wedding on 10/3/2015. I highly recommend using her and her team. They did an amazing job! Our hair/makeup lasted the whole night. The only thing I touched up was my lipstick which is normal to do. My bridesmaids said they loved their hair/makeup and thought the whole team was fun to work with. Definitely book her for your wedding.

Antonette was lovely a lovely lady to work with – from the time of the preview where she snuck me in during a busy day due to my crazy schedule and didn’t finish until 11PM – throughout the entire process. She emphasized and was true to her word when she said nobody would have to go out with hair or make-up they don’t like, they will always fix it to make sure everyone likes the way they look. Her beauty team came to where we were getting ready (The Palmer House downtown) and were all there by 6:45AM ready to go! We had an organized schedule prior to wedding day so each bridesmaid knew what time they were getting hair or make-up done and who was doing it. The day of our wedding was a little bit hectic & hair/make-up was a little bit behind schedule, but Antonette being the expert she is, had time built in to allow for the unknown (and thank goodness)!

At first my mom & mother-in-law were worried to get make-up done because they wanted to look like ‘themselves’ and I was probably a little bit worried about this as well. Looking at Antonette’s work was enough to ease both mothers and myself. Antonette & her team do such a great job of using make-up to bring out natural beauty without being ‘too much’. Her beauty team did such a wonderful job on each and every person in the bridal party (including the Jr. Bridesmaids & flower girl). I personally thought each of the girls looked amazing and I know they did too. I would recommend Antonette a million times over because with Antonette you don’t have to worry or be nervous about anything (from timing, scheduling, not looking how you want to look, etc) – she will take care of everything.
