I contacted Appease four days before my wedding after my previously hired hair and make-up person showed an amount of unprofessionalism I could no longer take (i.e. charging us more than they said originally, changing our end time, etc.) Carla and Carrie came to the rescue and couldn't have been more phenomenal! They are an organized business and listened to what I wanted and made sure they could offer it before scheduling me and my bridal party.
On the day of the wedding, they were on time, listened to the bridal party and what they wanted, and were personable and easy to work with. All the girls looked awesome!
Also, even though one of the girls initially had said she only wanted hair done because she never liked any make-up services she had received before, after seeing the others with their make-up, she changed her mind; Carla agreed to do her make up too and did a great job (the bridesmaid said it was the first time she ever got her make-up professionally done and actually liked it). Before taking off they touched up a few things the girls asked for (ie re-do curl, bobby pin piece of hair, etc.), gave us a little powder and lipstick to touch up our make-up in case we felt we needed it, and put my veil on for me (I was nervous to mess up my hair). So nice!
Our photographers noticed how well they did and what great customer service they had and even asked us what the company name was so they could refer future brides to them. You can't go wrong with these two!

I had both a trial and day of hair and makeup services with airbrush makeup and eyelashes. I also had extensions used in my hair style. Although I didn't end up loving my trial hair and makeup, after sending Carrie more pictures and descriptions of what I wanted changed, I couldn't have been happier with my hair and makeup on my wedding day!! It was flawless! My makeup didn't move all day, and my hair stayed put, too. Removing the veil from my hair after the ceremony was as easy as Carrie said it would be. Carla and Carrie are great to work with!! They are flexible and excellent communicators. I appreciated that Carrie listened to me and helped keep me calm as she worked on my hair and makeup amidst the chaos of a typical wedding day.

I had my hair done with Carla when I was recently a bridesmaid, as part of the wedding day prep. She and her team were excellent. I was really happy with the style. I have straight, flat hair and they did a great updo which held all day, through lots of festivities and dancing, without looking stiff or overdone. Great value.

I just got married this past weekend, and I was soooooo pleased with my makeup and hair, I'm beyond words. Almost every one of our guests commented on my makeup and how pristine and perfect it looked and my hair was exactly what I asked for (thanks to Elvire). Carrie and her staff were so responsive and always got back to me, answering my questions within a day or two. I just had to write a great review to thank Appease Inc for making my wedding day perfect!

I was really excited with how my hair and make up looked the day of the wedding even though I didn't go for a trial. I contacted them pretty last minute and they were still able to accommodate me and all of my bridesmaids and other family members. (Hair and make up for 11 girls and they did it within 6 hours.) I even got a discount which was great and I definitely think I couldn't have gotten a better service for my wedding.

Carla did my hair and make-up and it was amazing! My pictures were beautiful and the airbrush make-up lasted all night.

One suggestion but the matching lipstick for touch ups. It really helped to make my end of night pictures look like my beginning of the day pictures. Best $20 I ever spent!

OMG I couldn't be happier with them. I bought the blushing bride package and hair & makeup for 6. They gave me a wonderful massage, mani / pedi, hair & makeup and I must say I felt like a princess lol. They all are so professional and so nice. My mom and bridesmaids all looked so beautiful, I'm very happy with their work. They sent a team of 6 and they all did an amazing job. I was very impress with my makeup artist Sunshine and my hair stylist Carrie. I will recommend them to my family and friends.

My wedding was a South Asian wedding with 3 days worth of wedding events (On average, there were 2 events per day). Appease did my mom and my hair for almost all of the events, and they did my bridesmaids hair for the wedding ceremony. All of us were very happy with Appease. From the moment I contacted Appease about doing my wedding, they were friendly, prompt, and professional. They always responded to my calls/emails within 24 hours and they arrived early for all of the events. (Considering I asked them to be there at 4am, its pretty impressive that they arrived early). My bridesmaids loved Carrie and Laura! Three of my bridesmaids have hair that goes down to their hips. Normally, it takes them an hour to get their hair done and their hair styles only last a few hours. Appease did their hair, and all of the other bridesmaids' hair, within a 1/2 an hour, and all of the bridesmaids' hair lasted the entire day. Carrie did my mom and my hair. We LOVED her! She was efficient, great to chat with, and I felt like she had memorized every hair style on Google. Some of my bridesmaids and myself didn't have pictures of the hairstyles they wanted, but all we had to do is give a brief explanation and Carrie knew exactly what we were talking about. Carrie was also very patient. My mom and I were late a few times b/c the wedding events ran longer than expected, and Carrie never got upset. She was always a delight. Needless to say, my bridesmaids, my mom, and I had a great experience with Appease, and I strongly recommend them!

Carla and Carrie were amazing! I had a huge wedding party and I'm also kind of a make-up snob, but Carrie and Carla did an absolutely gorgeous job on every single person. Everyone's make-up was perfect, the hair was outstanding and it lasted all day long, and even with 12 people receiving services, we were ready ahead of schedule! They made me feel beautiful, they made my bridesmaids look fabulous, and they were total professionals in every interaction.

Appease, Inc. is also extremely reasonably priced and they come to you! I have no reservations whatsoever recommending them to anyone for their wedding!

Carrie (hair) and Sunshine (makeup) from Appease were wonderful!

Carrie was super nice. When my half up updo fell flat the day of my trial, Carrie did an updo trial at no additional cost -- and I loved it!

Sunshine was excellent as well. I loved the airbrush makeup -- she made me feel and look like a celeb!

I would recommend both of them to any girl looking for a hair/makeup team that comes to their house.

Appease made getting ready for my wedding reception fun and easy. I waited until the last minute to book, but Carla was quick to respond and provide the information I needed via email. Carla was our main hair and makeup provider, and brought an assistant and a nail tech to speed things up for the 6 of us. At the trial, Carla was able to take a few random pictures I had sent her and create exactly what I wanted (which wasn't in any of the pictures). I love that the trial took place in my home...made a very stressful time that much less stressful, and my fiance was able to give his opinion (not that he had much of one). Everyone else was also very happy with their hair, makeup, and nails, and it allowed me to give a small "thank you" to my sisters, mothers, and grandmas for all their help without the added annoyance of getting everyone to another location (Appease came to the hotel we were all staying at).

My make-up artist, Maria, for my wedding day was fantastic. She was so professional and fun to work with. She listened to what I like and wanted and helped me to look my most beautiful. She did a fantastic job and I have never felt so pretty. She was worth every penny and more, I had to tip her extra for how great she made me look and feel. She even whet out of her way to help my dad who had fallen and had a black eye. Great person, great company!

Working with Appease has been great - from the moment I contacted them. They were quick to respond, matched competitor's pricing, and were very thorough with following up while I was planning my wedding remotely. I didn't get a chance to do a test run, but it was not anything to worry about - their pictures speak for themselves. The day of my wedding - Carla was on time, her assistant and her worked efficiently, and my hair looked beautiful for my special day. She did an awesome job on my bridesmaids' hair and makeup as well. I would recommend them to anyone I know planning for a special event!

My wedding was this past week on June 1st, and I'm so thankful I chose appease to do our hair and makeup. They did me and my three bridesmaids. I had a trial about a month earlier. at the trial, Carla did an awesome job of capturing exactly what I wanted even though I probably didn't have enough hair for the hairstyle. On my wedding day, two stylists came. They were on time and got all of us done without rushing. My bridesmaids looked gorgeous, especially my sister. Her hair was like a piece of art. Amazing! Not only are they great, but the convenience of having someone come to me was worth every penny. And really, when you think about it, they do not charge much for the incredible service they provide. I was completely satisfied with the service I got.

Carla did the hair and makeup for my bridal party and my mother for my wedding on 10/15/11. She did a fantastic job! She came to my apartment for the trial and made me feel very comfortable. After the trial I decided to change my hair style and with just a few pictures that I sent to her she gave me the perfect hair style for my wedding. All the girls that had their hair and makeup done came up and told me how much they loved their styles and had nothing but glowing compliments for Carla. I would absolutely recommend this company to any bride. They were talented and professional and they also fit perfectly into my budget.

My hair and makeup were perfect AND they stayed that way well into the night. After hours of pictures and then dancing my tush off, I still looked polished and pretty. Thank you!

Appease Inc. great to work with for my wedding in September 2011 at the Westin in Lombard. I was recommended to Appease by a friend at work whose sister recently used them for her wedding and had a great experience with them. My main point of contact was Carla, and she always responded to my emails and addressed my questions and concerns right away, which was great because I definitely had a lot! I chose Appease because of their reasonable prices, especially with the discount for my Friday wedding, and the fact that they come to you on the day of your wedding and for any trials beforehand. At my original trial, the makeup artist and I got along fine but couldn’t quite get on the same page about what I was looking for, so I let Carla know, and she was very happy to send a different makeup artist to me for another trial at no extra charge (who happened to be Laura, my hair stylist). The 2nd trial was much better, and I am so glad that Carla was understanding and wanted to make sure that I was happy with my look so there would be no surprises on the day of my wedding. My mom, 3 of my bridesmaids, and I all had our hair and makeup done at the hotel where the ceremony and reception were being held. It was so nice to have everyone in one place getting ready so I didn’t have to worry about where everyone was and when they would be arriving at the hotel. Carla and Laura arrived right on time the morning of the wedding, and they did such a wonderful job on all of us! They listened to what we wanted and were happy to make changes to our hair and makeup if there was something we didn’t like the first time around. My mom and bridesmaids were extremely happy with their hair and makeup, and I absolutely loved mine – it looked even than I could have ever imagined and went perfectly with my wedding gown. We all looked and felt beautiful, and the airbrush makeup looked natural and felt like we weren’t wearing any makeup, which we loved. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup all night, and some people that couldn’t make it to the wedding but saw the wedding pictures even made comments about how good all of our hair and makeup looked. I would absolutely recommend Appease Inc. to anyone needing their hair and makeup done for an event, and I would definitely use them again in the future!

I had Laura and an assistant come do my hair for my wedding, along with 6 bridemaids and one flower girl and my mother. She came first to my house and did my trial and i loved it, a few days after my trial i decided i really wanted my hair all the way up and she had no problem with coming out for a second trial so we could get it just right. The day if the wedding they showed up right on time and got straight to work. I loved the airbrush make up and it stayed on all night! Even more impressive was how well all of our updo's lasted the whole night, for a good 12 hours! I never had one touch up to do and my hair looked absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone for their wedding day or any other event, she did a fabulous job and we couldn't have been more pleased.

Omg!!! Carla is Amazing! She did a wonderful job! She did my make up for my bridal shower and my wedding. Everybody loved it. Most important I loved and so did my husband. She did my make up at 9am and it lasted to 2am! Polish/American weddings are long...but fun! I cant wait for another excuse to call her to do my make up for a special event.

Carrie was so amazing to work with. I am an out of town bride and she was really flexible at squeezing in a hair trial at 8 am on a Sunday! She did amazing work and was really affordable. She has a very sweet and fun personality too so you feel completely at ease with her. My sister has booked her for her wedding next year also! Everyone looked absolutely beautiful - she has my full recommendation!

I was really happy with my hair and makeup for my big day. Laura did an amazing job! Usually, pictures I see for make up for Indian brides is over the top and not flattering. Laura did a great job of bringing out that natural look that also photographed perfectly. I had 2 looks for my big day, one for the wedding and another for the reception. Laura put together 2 completely different looks for me and I could not be happier. I was also really happy with my mom and sister's make up. Overall, Laura did an amazing job and I would recommend her to all my friends. Also, Appease does a great job of being responsive to emails and calls. I never had to wait more than 1-2 days to receive a response in regards to questions, etc. I am so glad I chose Appease for my big day.

I used Appease for my hair/make up, as well as two bridesmaids and two moms. I booked my group through email and spoke with Carla. She was very accommodating, as I kept changing how many people were getting which services. I had my trial about a month before, and although the stylists did a good job, I changed my mind for the day of the wedding and they had no problem changing what they did. My stylists were Samantha for hair and Jennifer for airbrush make up. They were amazing. My hair stayed the whole night, and my make up was hard to take off even the next day. Jennifer gave me lipstick touch ups for later in the night, but I only had to use it one time all the way at the end of the night. It stayed on so well. I was very happy with Appease and would recommend them. Their prices are reasonable too, but be aware, you have to pay the full price for everyone + 20% tip two weeks before your big day. However, this was spelled out to me ahead of time. Overall, I had a great experience and felt gorgeous on my big day!

I had Laura do my hair and makeup at the platinum level, which included airbrush makeup. She did a great job- I was really impressed especially with how well the makeup stayed up, even with high humidity. I loved what she did with my hair- no one else has been able to get it to hold a curl. She also did all four of my bridesmaids (with an assistant) and they all looked beautiful. All in all, Appease was great to deal with, and Laura especially is a gem!

I am so happy I picked appease for my hair and makeup for my wedding! It was one of the vendors I did not have to stress about!
They answered my emails so quickly, my trial went really well and everything on the wedding day was great. Samantha was so nice, patient and did an amazing job on my hair and makeup. I was never called "stunning" before that day! I felt so beautiful I knew all the photos would come out great.

Thank you!

My hair stylist for the wedding was Laura. Laura is not only amazing at hair and make up but she is such a great person! She was so understanding with my entire family and what we wanted for out wedding. Appease is a great company, great value and they come to you. I would definitely recommend Laura, she is one a million. I look like a princess for my wedding She did 3 different looks in two days and they were all very unique to go with all of my Indian outfits. I looked modern and elegent, thanks to her! I love her. I wish I could take her with me everywhere!

The only downfall is that you have to pay your final sum two weeks prior to the event. I did not read the fine print and was not happy about that.

Carla is the best ever! Not only was Appease the cheapest hair/make-up company I could find, but they did an AMAZING job! After my trial I totally changed what I wanted (I wanted curly rather than straight hair, less make-up, different colors, different feel, etc.) and Carla showed up the day of the wedding and blew away my expectations. I loved the way I looked and would recommend her to ANYONE looking to be beautiful on their special day. She also did a great job with my mom (who has very short hair) and my bridesmaids.

Carla from Appease Inc. was so great to work with. There were 5 of us that got our hair done at the hotel and Carla worked very well with each person's individual tastes. No hair type was too challenging. It was so convenient to have this service done on site - makes for a little less stress the morning of the wedding. She even came to my house for the trial - this is just the kind of pampering that all brides deserve.

I'd love to try other services from Appease. The are an overall reliable business.

Thanks.

Carla did an amazing job for my wedding. My hair usually never stays curly (straight Asian hair) and I also sweat alot (hot July wedding). She was professional and prompt and my hair stayed miraculously curly the entire time! It looked amazing. Also the airbrush makeup is magical, it stayed on the entire 12 hours. I wish I could look like that all the time. It did not look too "over-done" and I can't wait to see more photos! She also comes to your venue and does BOTH hair and makeup which is awesome. Thank you Carla!!!

Carla did an amazing job. She made my mother look radiant and 15 years younger. My junior bridesmaid looked so pretty (and age appropriate). When my maid of honor was getting her hair done she said, "I am usually very nervous when people do my hair, but everyone looks great and I feel completely confident." And she looked amazing.

I don't wear a lot of makeup in day to day life, so during my trial, the amount of makeup I was wearing made me feel uncomfortable. Carla listened to what I said, came up with some adjustments and on the day of the wedding, I not only looked picture perfect, but also felt like myself.

I looked beautiful and my bridal party looked beautiful. More importantly, we all FELT beautiful. Thank you Carla and Appease, inc.

I live in London and as such, was planning my wedding from abroad. Carla was extremely patient and helpful when I contacted her via email about my wedding. She explained the various packages available to me, and she was very flexible in accommodating a date for my trial which coincided with a short trip back to the States before the wedding.

On the day of my trial, there was a huge snowstorm in Chicago, but that didn't stop Carla! I was so happy we didn't have to reschedule because I had planned the trial to coincide with my bachelorette party that night. Thanks to Carla, I looked and felt great! My hair and makeup lasted the entire night--through snowstorms, martinis and the Chicago nightlife! It was the ultimate pre-wedding test :)

Carla and Cindy did a fabulous job on the day of the wedding. All of the bridesmaids looked beautiful. We had so much fun getting ready, and Carla and Cindy were great at keeping us on schedule during the the entire process. I have never felt prettier in my life! Carla's makeup skills are second-to-none.

Most importantly, Carla gave me peace of mind in the months leading up to the event. Planning a wedding from abroad can be unnerving, but I felt confident that I had made the right choice when I hired Appease 2 Me. I was not disappointed.

I have a high school reunion coming up in September, and I am already planning on contacting Carla to schedule some pre-party pampering.

Thanks again for doing an amazing job girls!

Carla and Cindy did a fabulous job on the day of the wedding. All of the bridesmaids looked beautiful. We had so much fun getting ready, and Carla and Cindy were great at keeping us on schedule during the the entire process. I have never felt prettier in my life! Carla's makeup skills are second-to-none.

Most importantly, Carla gave me peace of mind in the months leading up to the event. Planning a wedding from abroad can be unnerving, but I felt confident that I had made the right choice when I hired Appease 2 Me. I was not disappointed.

I have a high school reunion coming up in September, and I am already planning on contacting Carla to schedule some pre-party pampering.

Thanks again for doing an amazing job girls!

I enjoyed working with Carla on my wedding day. It was a tight schedule with two bridesmaids in addition to my make-up and hair. Carla did a beautiful job for all of the appointments, keeping us right on schedule. She kept the mood light--allowing the wedding party and my family at the house (where the appointment was held) to have a good time. I made a last minute hairstyle change from the trial appointment and Carla was very accomodating. The hair and make-up lasted all day even through a long afternoon of picture-taking in the gardens on a chilly day.

Dealing with Carrie was an absolute pleasure. My makeup artist was Peggy and she was so fantastic. I hadn't originally planned on having my makeup done professionally but I am so glad I did. It was some of the best money I spent in this entire wedding process. My makeup lasted the entire day and evening with only touching up my lip gloss. The compliments I received were so numerous that I lost count. I know that my day was that more perfect for going with Appease.

As my wedding day approached, at the last minue, my bridal party and I decided to have our hair done professionally. We literally had two weeks to find someone who not only was not booked for the Saturday we needed, but would also work on location. We found Appease, and by luck, they had a cancelation for the day we needed. They were very prompt and professional. And, they were very responsive and helpful knowing that this was a very high stress situation of last minute planning. They were able to fit me in for a trail updo, and plan my big day in less than two weeks. They were wonderful!

I completely changed my mind on how I wanted my hair done and it wasn't a problem at all. Everyone went above and beyond just hair and makeup to assist with the little problems that occur on wedding days. It was an unbelievable experience and I would recommend Appease to anyone! I could not have been happier with the service.

I was BEYOND happy with my hair and make up provided through Appease. I rarely wear make-up, so I was extremely nervous about having someone do my make up and making me look like someone I wasn't. Elvire was AMAZING..... She seemed to know exactly what I was looking for in both hair and make-up, and although it surprised me that it took 2 1/2 hours to give me a "natural look", it was absolutely PERFECT! I chose to pay extra for the airbrush option and I'm so glad I did....we got our professional photos back yesterday and my skin looks flawless from the first to last photos taken all throughout the day!

I have short hair and I was also concerned about the fact that a lot of stylists don't know how to style short hair....most are good with "updos" but short hair can be a challenge for some. Not Elvire. She again did a fantastic job, she worked with my natural curl and added some extras to make it special, but I was so happy when she was done that I still looked like ME! I knew it was a great start to a most perfect day.....and I was right!!!

She arrived early for both the trial run and the day of the wedding. She brought everything she needed and was extremely organized and quick to set up and clean up. Most of all, she was friendly and easy to chat with as she worked. A perfect demeanor for her job!

I opted to mark down the stars just a bit on value, as I just felt that it was a tad bit expensive. They were very upfront with their pricing, but I guess as someone who never really spends a lot on makeup, I just had a really hard time paying so much for this service; however, I'm definitely so glad I did..... And their prices are actually less expensive than other places I researched.

I would DEFINITELY recommend Appease to anyone, anytime!

I was a little worried about using a "company" for our hair and makeup. But I was proven wrong. Carla did the hair for my entire bridal party and mine and my mom's makeup. I was INCREDIBLY pleased with how it turned out. Before planning my wedding, I had no idea this was a whole industry. Carrie was great in working with me to answer all my questions pre-wedding. Carla came to do a trial with me and really listened to my ideas and feedback. She is truly an artist. We were so happy we chose Appease. They were affordable and very talented.

I hired Appease for my wedding in June 2012 to do both hair and makeup for myself and bridal party. Carrie was my stylist and Jonathon was the makeup artist, and they both did an absolutely fantastic job! They first came to my place for my hair and makeup trial. Getting a convenient trial time setup was a little tricky since our wedding was during their busy season. But once we got it scheduled they listened to everything that I wanted and did beautiful work. On the day of the wedding, they both came to our hotel where we were getting ready and promptly got started. Everyone in my bridal party looked gorgeous and we all kept getting compliments throughout the night. I am so pleased that Appease was a part of my wedding and would definitely recommend them to friends!

I had a stylist/makeup artist from appease named Candice for me, my mom and my mother in law for my wedding day and she was awesome. I had my hair done and airbrush makeup, they come to you. I had a trial the same week as my wedding since I was married in a different state than I live in and she took her time and made sure I loved what she did. On the day of the wedding she arrived promptly, got me ready in time for the photographer and got everyone else ready early as well. She did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup and she even fixed one of my bridesmaid's makeup that she got done elsewhere and hated. It was very easy to set up service with the company and everything went perfectly. They are a little pricey for their services and trials but she did a wonderful job and I would absolutely recommend them.

Carla did my hair and makeup for my wedding, and the hair of one of my bridesmaids. She wasn't fazed when I began crying because I didn't like my hairstyle on the day-of and was able to quickly whip it into something better. My makeup was GORGEOUS and I got so many compliments. The only thing that could have been better was sometimes my emails or phone messages didn't seem to get through. But everything went according to schedule. Great price for quality of service.

We used Appease Inc for our wedding day makeup and hair services. LOVE the fact that they travel to your location, it makes things a lot easier then going to a place when you are already running all over the place the morning of! I spoke with Appease mostly through email. Sometimes they were fast at responding and sometimes it took a little time for them to get back to me. We originally only had 2 girls coming for Hair and Makeup and they made a schedule for us starting at 6AM when our ceremony was at 2:30PM! When I asked if another girl to come for hair, they were flexible and added another girl making the start time at 8AM instead, which was a lot better! We had Carrie and Stephanie for hair and Kim for makeup. Carrie did my hair and it turned out great and beautiful and exactly how I wanted it! However, a few curls came loose within a couple hours. :( Carrie also did, along with Stephanie, the bridesmaids hair. Majority of the girls loved how their hair turned out. Kim was awesome, absolutely loved how my makeup turned out! You can tell she is a perfectionist - which is great because everyone wants to be near perfect on their wedding day! THANK YOU APPEASE!

Carla did an amazing job on my hair and makeup. I couldn't have asked for anything better! It lasted all day, from 11am to midnight, which is an amazing feat for my oily skin and my thick hair that I didn't think would hold curl that long. But, she made it happen! My four bridesmaids loved their hair styles too. Everything was great, and Carla was on time, which I appreciated!

I had Carla from Appease do my hair and makeup, at the Platinum level, and also the hair and/or makeup of my bridal party and mom. It took all morning because there was a lot to do, but I could not have been more happy. Everyone looked fantastic and got numerous compliments. I loved my up-do and thought it was perfect. I had done the trial before and it went well. She first tried the front of my hair one way, but we didn't like it, so she adjust it and then adjusted it again to get exactly what we wanted. She was also very responsive in regards to what I wanted with makeup. My only complaint, and it's a really tiny one, is that she had to come on two separate evenings for the trial (doing hair first and then makeup second) because the first time she forgot to bring stuff for makeup. But she did come all the way to my place twice, at rush hour, and was very accommodating to my schedule, so I really didn't mind the mix up in the end. All in all, I highly recommend Appease for the beauty of Carla's work, and thought their prices were really reasonable too.

I worked with Laura for my own hair and makeup (platinum package). I did my trial on the day I planned to do my engagement photos which gave me an idea how well things would hold up for the big day. It also helped us to determine things we wanted to change for the big day. Laura was very receptive to my likes/dislikes and open to changing whatever I didn't like without a problem! She was also very pleasant with my bridal party and new mother in law with their hair/makeup as well.

We also worked with Peggy on the day of, who was very flexible with the schedule when we ran into a few bumps with our own bridal party members showing up late. She just took it all in stride and juggled it like a true professional. Not only that, but she also took on an extra person to style with little notice.

Ladies, working with appease truly made my life much simpler in preparing for my big day. Carla and Carrie were both very prompt in answering my calls and emails to address all of my concerns. The stylists are truly professional and pros at what they do. Lastly, my hair/makeup looked flawless all night! To be truthful my hair actually lasted me into the next day (I was so exhausted from my evening I actually fell asleep and it remained perfect for brunch the next morning!)

If you want a stress free hair and makeup experience that will cater and come to you - call or email appease. You won't be sorry.

I loved that they came to the hotel we were at because our ceremony and reception were both there, we were staying there, and we were in town from Arizona so basically the wedding day was made so much simpler because we didn't have to journey all over the city to get things done!

Carla did an amazing job on our hair and makeup. She asked questions to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. Emails and phone calls were answered promptly and she was very professional. She was very accommodating by doing my trial on a day that they normally don't. I would definitely recommend Appease!

I hired Carla and her team for my New Years Eve wedding. Carla did an awesome job on both my hair and makeup. I normally don't wear makeup or do my hair and we were able to work together to create the exact look I wanted. The best part of the experience was having a trial a few months before the wedding. I was able to update my look for the wedding without the anxiety of not knowing what I would look like. Plus they came to my hotel room for the wedding which was super convenient.

Carla is very sweet and easy to work with. I would recommend her a million times over. FANTASTIC!

We worked with Carla, Iris and Cynthia for my 12/1/12 wedding, and they were all great. They worked efficiently and everyone looked great. The only thing I would say is that my hairpiece (a big crystal brooch) should have been pinned better because it eventually had to be pulled out since it kept falling. Appease is a little more pricier, but they offer deals, and they do come to you, so it's worth it.

Laura did my + 4 bridesmaids makeup + my hair and Peggy did 4 bridesmaids hair. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Appease. Carrie was extremely responsive throughout the process and very accommodating (even when our original hair person got sick!). Laura was absolutely amazing. I felt beautiful the entire day and after getting my pictures back, look flawless. I definitely recommend booking Laura!

I had a fairly large bridal party (me, 7 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls, & 2 moms) getting hair and makeup done -- Carrie did everyone's hair, and Carla did all the makeup. I had everyone just pick whatever they wanted for hair and we had fairly natural makeup for everyone, and it all just looked fantastic.

I have super curly hair, and working with Carrie was fantastic. I loved my hair at my trial, but when I had my first dress fitting later the same day, the formal up-style I had picked just didn't really work with the dress, so I unpinned it for a more relaxed half-down look. I sent Carrie some pictures and asked if we'd be able to re-work the style on the fly the day-of, and she said no problem.

I thought we would need a ton of extra time on the morning of the wedding to basically do a second trial (what if I hated it?!), but it took even less time than the actual trial, and my hair on the day of could not have been more perfect -- Carrie knew exactly what I was talking about, and everyone was ready in plenty of time. Definitely recommend.

I was very hesitant to book a makeup artist for my wedding, since I rarely wear makeup and have not had good experience with professionals in the past. However, I was convinced to try airbrush by friends and was able to book Appease at the last minute. I was very happy with Jenessa, my makeup artist. She was friendly and efficient. When I asked for a few changes the day of my wedding, she was very flexible and accommodating. I appreciated that there was no minimum and that travel, both to the trial and the wedding location, was included (I was the only one that needed makeup.) However, from a business standpoint, I did not like that there was an automatic 20% gratuity included. I loved Jenessa's work, and would have happily tipped her, but it is my personal opinion that gratuities should be optional based on the quality of service. Also, the "touch up kit" that is highlighted on the website included a cheap lipgloss that exploded almost all over my dress right before the ceremony. Still, I was happy with my makeup on the day of my wedding.

I used Appease for my Indian and American weddings. I had all my bridesmaid hair & makeup done for the American Wedding. I had a trial done at my home before the wedding for both which was very helpful. Overall, the staff was very talented and friendly.

Overall I was very pleased with the hair & makeup. I loved my look & the team was able to follow picture suggestions from my bridesmaids and achieve the overall looks desired. We opted for the airbrush & eyelash packages and did have a few issues with eyelashes falling off for those that had been applied by the main assistant. Other than that - makeup and hair stayed in place all night.

For timing - I think it was a little under estimated which put us a bit behind schedule. Some of the bridesmaids asked for re-dos so just know your wedding party and plan accordingly. Def not something to rush though so just a suggestion to brides to put some extra cushion in your day so no one is behind and everyone looks amazing.

Even though I had some issues along the road, I would ultimately recommend Appease. Carrie was great and did an amazing job with my hair and my bridesmaids' hair. She was very responsive when I had an issue with my make-up trial. My make-up artist was not aware that she had a trial. I was a little bit annoyed because I did have to take off of work for the trial. They re-scheduled my make-up trial, and did not charge me for the trial. (I didn't even have to ask for that, so I was happy.) When it came time for my re-scheduled trial, I got a phone call from the make-up artist saying that she would not make it in time, and in fact, she wasn't sure if she would make it at all before I had to leave. (I had a dress fitting scheduled right after the make-up trial.) She did end up making it, but only had 30 minutes to complete the trial. She did a rushed job, but did MUCH better on the day of the wedding.

The day of the wedding was great! Everyone showed up right on time, and they stuck very closely to our schedule. Everyone looked beautiful!

The women who run Appease are very friendly and professional. The girls who came to do the hair and makeup were prompt and were friendly as well.

We did have an issue two days before my wedding day where the girl who I had my trial with became, what I believe was, indefinitely unavailable. When Carrie called to inform me of this news she already had a backup ready for me and my girls, but I no longer had the benefits of having the trial. Carrie did refund my money for the trial.

On the day my hair came out great, and my makeup looked nice in the mirror. The only issue was when I saw my friends and family photos with standard point and shoot cameras, I came out kind of ghostly. My makeup was, I feel, a few shades lighter than my skin. I also asked for more dramatic eyes because I like to focus more on my eyes then anything and in the photos they looked kind of dull and gray. I had mentioned the girl that I had that I like that bridal glow look, but I looked more matte. This is why trials are so important! So I do not blame the girl who did my makeup because it was too hard to figure it all out on the day of. It's just a bummer that my face wasn't what I hoped it would be. I am hoping that the professional photos come out better because it will be less of the direct harsh flash.

The girl who did the mom's and the BM makeup did a wonderful job, her name was Peggy.

Carla did a wonderful job with my makeup! She came all the way out to St. Charles (from Chicago) for both the trial and wedding day! The airbrush makeup is a MUST DO for the wedding day! You can really see the difference in the photos. I would highly recommend it. The eye makeup colors she had weren't initially what I was looking for but we blended some colors to make it work and it ended up looking great! She was receptive to any changes I wanted to make. Thanks, Carla!

The girls at Appease were so great to work with. In general, I think the prices of hair & make-up are more expensive than I anticipated, but Appease was really great. They were so flexible with scheduling a trial for hair & make-up. On the wedding day, they came to the hotel & did everyone's hair & make-up before we got dressed. It was much less stressful than having to go from one location to another & then getting dressed. By the end of the night, my hair was still perfect. My make-up had rubbed off, and I should have brought back-up mascara, ect. But that's to be expected after 8 hours of running around.

I paid for hair for myself, 6 bridesmaids and got our flowergirl's hair done for free. My first trial was with Carla, and although she was punctual, sweet and professional, I felt that she hadn't looked at the example photos that I spent so much time picking out for her. I ended up talking with Carrie again to find another stylist that I fit better with. She set me up with Laura, who was FABULOUS.

Laura came with Olga on our wedding day and I can't say enough GOOD THINGS about them. She listened to everything I liked/disliked and I was floored at how amazing I looked. On our wedding day, we had some drama and Laura rolled right with it and made all the girls shine. That was after they got up at the crack of dawn to start on us at 7am!! Everyone loved their hair and makeup, we stayed on schedule and there's no feeling like absolutely LOVING the way you look on your wedding day. It's priceless.

My score for responsiveness has NOTHING to do with Laura herself (who answered the phone every time I called), but with Carrie and Carla. They were very sweet and helpful when I could actually get a hold of them. Often it took almost 2 weeks for them to return a viocemail and longer for an email. I found myself leaving multiple messages for them and feeling like I was badgering them to get a call back.

I will definitely be calling Laura in the future and I would recommend her and Olga to any bride who wants to book someone for hair and makeup, and be absolutely worry free about this part of the wedding. They are 100% reliable and professional.

**The further ahead you book, the better the price!!

I had Peggy do my hair (and yes she has experience with african american hair and did great)
and Misha do airbrush make up which was the bomb! here were the reasons the company got 2 4's
which is still good
Granted I did not set up my hair and make up trial until closer to my wedding they reschedule it i believe twice
. which isn't bad but all the wedding stuff going on it was an added stress to reschedule once and then again. they were very apologetic about it, and it was due to things beyond our control BUT, I'm a bride lol, so I wanted things to fall into place. I also got a platinum package and had to ask about my touch up kit, they didnt have me down for getting one at first so if I hadnt mentioned it, I may not have gotten it. Anyway those are just minor things that I point out to be honest. but aside from all that, it didnt make a dent in the amazing service I got. I got to make decisions!
ON my wedding day After Peggy did it the first time I was Not satisfied, I asked her to do it again and I did not like it and then again and I didnt like it, third time was a charm, and none of it was her fault I was stressed about other things that morning and she was so very patient and did not complain and I appreciated that. Misha and I hit it off right away she was nice, approachable good stuff. thanks appease!

I booked Appease to do hair for all wedding which included 7 bridesmaids, 4 flower girls and myself. Two stylists, Carla and Carrie, arrived bright and early (and on time) for my Friday wedding. With so many hairstyles to get through, I was nervous if we had enough time for everyone but both girls stayed focused and cranked it out no problem! Carla did my hair and it turned out exactly like it did for my bridal trial which was such a relief. I know all my flower girls were in love with their hair...it was definitely a treat for them to get some pampering. And I think all my bridesmaids liked their hairstyles as well. Overall, I was very happy with Appease. My only issue was that I had to pay for all services (including tip) ahead of time instead of on the day-of. It wasn't the biggest issue but I had to foot the bill on my credit card two weeks out from the wedding and it was a hefty chunk of change right at the end when all my other deposits were due.

I used Carla and her team for my LARGE wedding party in the winter. I had 10 bridesmaids and a mother who all needed hair and make up done on a TIGHT schedule. They were extremely friendly, on time, well priced, flexible, and easy to work with. They definitely helped in getting us ready and out the door on time. I would HIGHLY recommend getting a run through for hair and make-up, as almost everywhere recommends to do. However, I did not. Absolutely my mistake to not do a run through, however, the finished product wasn't quite what I was hoping for either. I think the finished product looked a little over hair-sprayed and unnatural. And unfortunately a few of my curls just wouldn't hold throughout the whole day. As far as make up, everyone looked beautiful! I think I was the only one that didn't love my make-up and I think it came down to the fact that I was pale. They didn't use bronzer and I didn't think to ask. I was also a very picky bride. I think this team would turn out wonderful if you make the time to get a run through, AND pay attention to what you want ahead of time.

Appease came to our hotel to do hair and makeup for the girls and moms. I also did an at-home trial with Appease. In the beginning, I had great communication with Appease (via email). About 6 months before the wedding, someone else within the company began responing to emails and she was not always very organized or responsive. My trial went fine, although there were things I wanted to change. On my wedding day, Carrie did the hair and she nailed it! I made some changes after the trial and she understood them all and it turned out beautiful. Sunshine did the makeup and after all of the changes I had, she did a fantastic job as well. Both girls did hair and makeup for the wedding party and everyone absolutely loved their hair and their makeup. There was only one girl who did not have the right foundation color on. I pointed it out to Sunshine but she checked her and thought it was fine. Maybe it was the lighting but I noticed it in photos. I even noticed I looked orange in some of my professional photos, which should never have happened. Overall though, I would recommend Appease.

I wasn’t sure I wanted to have someone do my hair and makeup for my wedding. The bills were piling up and the bank account was getting low. I was giving the advice that no matter what I do; make sure I get someone to do my hair and makeup. And I heard this from a lot of brides. So I started to look into this. And I found Appease. I e-mailed them and asked a bunch of questions; Carrie e-mailed me back with all my questions answered. She seemed to be really nice. I looked up reviews on them and no one had any bad remarks. I set up a trial run with Carrie, for a woman named Peggy to come out to my house and do my hair. Peggy and I hit it off great. She was super sweet, my hair and makeup turned out great for the trial run and on my big day. I am very thankful I went with them.
The only down part was I was never given my little kit that was promised.

I thought Carla did a beautiful job for me and my girls. I would definitely use her again. My only critique is that I do not appreciate having to give people directions, particularly on the day of the wedding. I envisioned doing nothing but showing up and getting married, and had to direct her to the reception location that day; it would have been better to sure up those details in the weeks before.

That said, my hair and makeup were absolutely beautiful, except for an exposed hairclip that I saw in several of my pictures.

Had a pretty good experience with Appease. 4 1/2 stars from me! I didn't want to stress too much for my wedding and finding hair and makeup people separately was starting to become a pain in the butt. I randomly found Appease on Wedding Wire. Most of the reviews were good, but for me the biggest plus was that this was a one stop shop. They did hair, nails, everything.

Yes, it was a little pricey but not any more than finding these two services separately. I even decided to splurge on myself and got the Blushing Bride package which included a massage and mani/pedi. How awesome was it for me that day to totally get pampered before jumping on the trolley for wedding activities?!

Carla helped set me up with everything and was on the whole quite responsive to my inquiries which made me feel better about choosing them. I liked that they come to you for the trial. Had my trials with Carrie (hair) and Jenessa (makeup) all in the comfort of my mom's house.

I am not all too particular so I liked that my makeup looked natural enough and they were able to work with my usually stick straight hair. I was able to ask the bridesmaids ahead of time what services they wanted and we ended up taking care of everything up front. For the most part everyone's hair and those that did makeup looked great. I was one relaxed bride on my big day.

The ladies I worked with from Appease were delightful. I had Carrie that cam e and did my hair and Iris did my make-up. Carrie also had my mom and 4 bridesmaids to do hair for, as well as our 2 1/2 year old flower girl. Iris had myself and 2 others to do. Both of them worked very well together, and everyone looked beautiful. There were some speedbumps and miscommunications here and there, but everything worked out in the end and I was pleased.

During my trial, Carla achieved the look that I wanted (both hair and makeup); she and I both took pictures, and I booked her services soon after. For the wedding day, she could not replicate the same exact look from the trial. When I showed her pictures from the trial of my hair, she said it would not be exactly the same, but I thought that was the point of the trial. I could have pushed the point, but we were already running a little late and I still had to get makeup done and get dressed. The makeup was also a little different from the trial (some different eye colors and more liner and mascara than I would have wanted) but that was less of an issue for me as long as it looked relatively natural. Unfortunately, my hair style (a low updo) was starting to come undone after about an hour, and I had to keep putting more bobby pins in to keep loose ends from falling on my neck and sticking out. The bridesmaids and my mom looked good though and the price was reasonable even though I was a little disappointed with my own look.

I wish I could give a better review but I cannot.
Laura did my hair and make up for my wedding - Laura was amazing - we did a trial and she was able to make some changes the day of and I looked beautiful & amazing. When I originally booked Appease I was working through Carla - I requested Carla as my make up/hair artist and she said that she requires a 3 person minimum I told her I would meet the minimum I just wanted her. She agreed.. so that was that... sometime around July/August I wanted to make sure with Carla that she would still be my hair make up person because I had a nightmare that she didn't show up - she then told me she can't be because she has a wedding.. UMMM OK???? so I was pissed.. then I said ok I want Laura then.. Laura had a different wedding that morning but they told me she could still do my hair and make up because the other wedding they were doing they had to be ready much earlier. Regardless - nothing against Laura she was amazing! but the assistant she brought with her kept on asking Laura what she needed to do (something as simple as CURLING HAIR) the two BMs that had their hair done were MISERABLE - one of them was the MOH.. so that was that.. one of my other BMs had two tattoos covered up (which obviously I paid for) please.. dont get me started they took a totally different shade of cover up and dabbed it on, made it look like shit... wasn't drying.. and made my BMs dress dirty. I probably could have done a better job myself. Regardless - as pleased as I was with the services I wasn't pleased with how my BMs hair & make up turned out... a bit pricey too... but it is what it is. They showed up on time but we fell way behind schedule - my hair and make up was supposed to take an hour (According to the schedule they sent over to me a few days before) and it ended up taking an hour and a half... my MOH was scheduled for 9am to 10am and its a good thing she went earlier because she needed to help me get dressed.

Let me first start out by saying that Kate is wonderful. She really does a fabulous job with hair and makeup and really gave me everything I wanted in my vintage glam look. People are still saying how STUNNING I was. My bridesmaids were very pleased with their hair as well- all different, unique but vintage. We did have a few hiccups in the process before the big day- I originally had discussed that I needed an assitant and then 1 week before I was told something different... wasn't very happy during a very stressful time. However, they did rectify it and I was very happy- without an assistant we wouldnt have been able to get myself, 5 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls ready in the little time we had- thank you for that. The only issue I had wasn't with the quality of Kate's work, it was the quality of makeup and the fact that I wasn't given the touch up bag. Before the ceremony began- my lip stain was off and my eyelashes were coming off and I never shed a tear.... I went with the platinum package for myself and was just surprised/upset that the makeup wasn't staying on. I contacted Appease about it and was told that Kate was too far and couldnt drop off the makeup bag- this upset me because I hadn't brought any makeup for the day because I assumed I would have the bag I paid for..... & was incredibly overwhelmed.

However, they again rectified it as best they could after the wedding. Overall I was incredibly pleased with Appease and with Kate- I just wish my makeup wouldn't have come off on such an important day. I still recommend them, just make sure that your lip stain and eyelashes dont come off! I never touched them and drank through a straw... so idk what happened. My hair and girls hair was incredible though- very pleased with that.

Appease was great in that they were able to come to my house for the makeup trial and then come to my location of the wedding to do my makeup. I think that they did a great job, it was just a little pricey for the airbrushing. (over 100 dollars) and the makeup did last awhile but by the end of the night after sweat, humidity and dancing it was a little sloppy.

I was pleased with my hair stylist (Alex). She was very friendly, worked quickly, and went the extra mile to make sure that everyone was happy.

My make up artist on the other hand was average. She did a decent job, however, I have been in previous wedding before and whenever I got my make up done I was given the mascara that was used on me as well as the lipstick/gloss so that I could make touch ups throughout the night and I was only a bridesmaid. This time around, I was the bride, and I was not even given the lipstick to make touchups. Not too pleased about this at all.

I believe that on your wedding day, you should feel and look perfect. I did not feel comfortable on the day of my wedding, and ended up trying to fix it myself at last minute. The makeup artist argued with me over the eyelashes that I wanted. I had a certain kind at the trial, and these were not the same on my wedding day. She proceeded to tell me they were. They were uneven and nonexistent near the inner eyes, and thicker on the outside which made me look like an alien. The colors were nothing like it showed in my example picture. I ended up in tears, and trying to fix it minutes before I had to start taking pictures. Awful! Overall, I still am very upset when I think about it, and how I did not feel absolutely stunning on my wedding day. Would not recommend.

This is overdue but necessary. I was married in Nov 2010 and orginally hired this company for hair/makeup for me (bride), 15 women (13 bridesmaids/2moms), and 3 flowergirls (hair only). I lived in Dallas so picked this company based on reviews and emails from them. In my emails, I told them my primary concern was that I am a dark skinned Indian girl and needed someone who had experience with this. They assured me they did have experience and even sent me a few pictures of previous indian girls they had done. I believed them and hired them. The makeup trial was aweful!!! The foundation didn't match at all and after expressing my concern several times, the makeup artist took a picture of me to prove that it matched. She took one look at the picture and said, "uh, that doesn't match." (How frustrating that she couldn't tell without the picture!). She wiped it off and started over, but at this point my faith was shaken in this person and I didn't want her to do my wedding makeup. The next day I called Appease and they said they had heard that the makeup person stuggled and that they would give me another trial with another person. This person was much better, but I feel like if Appease already knew that I had a bad experience, why didn't they call me first to fix it. Also, if they knew my primary concern was having a person who could match dark skin, why didn't they send a better person the first time instead of waiting for this girl to fail and then sending me a better person? On the upside, the hair person they sent Catherine was amazing!
Things to consider when hiring them:
1) They don't listen to your concerns. I told them my concern was matching my dark skin, and they didn't send me someone who was capable of handling it the first time. Another concern I had was with their time table. I told them based on my experience, it takes longer to do Indian hair/makeup. They would not change the time line and the day of the wedding we ran late.
2) They make you pay 20% tip upfront. I feel like a tip is performance based and should be given the day of (unless you want to give it early).
3) I paid for everything up front hoping for a smooth day. The day off, the makeup artists are trying to upsell the bridesmaids, asking if they want airbrush for $20 more or fake eyelashes for whatever amount more. So then I have bridesmaids dashing back to their hotel rooms to get money and a makeup artist trying to keep a ledger of everything she is selling. It pissed me off because I personnally paid for everything up front as a gift to my bridesmaids and to keep out the chaos but instead, Appease totally stressed me out and made me feel bad about not buying the bridesmaids airbrushed makeup instead of regular makeup. (and I already paid $120 for each person, not including me)

Months after the wedding, when Carla the owner asked me about my experience and I told her the truth, she was defensive and never appologized. She told me she learned from my large bridal party experience that more time should be allotted per girl and the fake eyelashes should be included in the base price and that they now do this for bridal parties. (Too little, too late for me. Though, I am happy some of this won't happen to other women). Basically she told me I was lucky that they were generous enough to do some things for me (like I had one women and 1 flower girl at another location so they sent a separate person there. But if it was a big deal I would have had that woman and flowergirl come to my location) What Carla fails to realize, is that this is a business. I'm not lucky, i am your client. What business owner tells a client that the client is lucky to be paying for services and getting serviced by them. I am a client that brought you a lot of business (1 bridal hair, 3 flower girls hair, and 15 women's hair and makeup), so i would have thought you were lucky to get me! Carla was one of the hairstylist the day of my wedding (which I didn't realize at the time). She said she saw the chaos created by the makeup astists trying to upsell and saw that I was stressed out about what going on, but did she do anything to stop it or did she come up to me at any time during the chaos and see what she could do? NO!

I'm upset with how alot of things were handled by this company. That being said, I would recomment the hairstylist Catherine Tsakalis. She is an amazing hairstylist.

This is overdue but necessary. I was married in Nov 2010 and orginally hired this company for hair/makeup for me (bride), 15 women (13 bridesmaids/2moms), and 3 flowergirls (hair only). I lived in Dallas so picked this company based on reviews and emails from them. In my emails, I told them my primary concern was that I am a dark skinned Indian girl and needed someone who had experience with this. They assured me they did have experience and even sent me a few pictures of previous indian girls they had done. I believed them and hired them. The makeup trial was aweful!!! The foundation didn't match at all and after expressing my concern several times, the makeup artist took a picture of me to prove that it matched. She took one look at the picture and said, "uh, that doesn't match." (How frustrating that she couldn't tell without the picture!). She wiped it off and started over, but at this point my faith was shaken in this person and I didn't want her to do my wedding makeup. The next day I called Appease and they said they had heard that the makeup person stuggled and that they would give me another trial with another person. This person was much better, but I feel like if Appease already knew that I had a bad experience, why didn't they call me first to fix it. Also, if they knew my primary concern was having a person who could match dark skin, why didn't they send a better person the first time instead of waiting for this girl to fail and then sending me a better person? On the upside, the hair person they sent Catherine was amazing!
Things to consider when hiring them:
1) They don't listen to your concerns. I told them my concern was matching my dark skin, and they didn't send me someone who was capable of handling it the first time. Another concern I had was with their time table. I told them based on my experience, it takes longer to do Indian hair/makeup. They would not change the time line and the day of the wedding we ran late.
2) They make you pay 20% tip upfront. I feel like a tip is performance based and should be given the day of (unless you want to give it early).
3) I paid for everything up front hoping for a smooth day. The day off, the makeup artists are trying to upsell the bridesmaids, asking if they want airbrush for $20 more or fake eyelashes for whatever amount more. So then I have bridesmaids dashing back to their hotel rooms to get money and a makeup artist trying to keep a ledger of everything she is selling. It pissed me off because I personnally paid for everything up front as a gift to my bridesmaids and to keep out the chaos but instead, Appease totally stressed me out and made me feel bad about not buying the bridesmaids airbrushed makeup instead of regular makeup. (and I already paid $120 for each person, not including me)

Carla did my hair and makeup and the hair for my four bridesmaids. I really liked the way Carla did my makeup, and that's the only positive thing I can say. I didn't love my hair when she was finished, but I didn't think it was bad. I tried to get her to fix it with a straighter after looking in the mirror but that didn't really work. I thought that my hair was good enough until I saw my wedding video. The back of my hair looked messy and only got worse as the night went on. Then after the wedding two of my bridesmaids told me that Carla was rude and unprofessional toward them. Overall I'm really disappointed with my experience with Appease. Carla is a good makeup artist, but a below average hairstylist.

After reading a few reviews, I decided to go with Appease for my wedding make up.

The day of the wedding was a complete disappointment--The make up--Jonathan did not seem confident in his artistic ability and projected a very nervous demeanor, which may have lead to this mediocre work and lack of attention to detail. I had so many issues with my wedding day make up, which included the following.

1. The airbrushed make up was much darker than was used during the trial session.

2. My false eye lashes did not stay on the whole night. In fact, they lasted about half an hour into my wedding day and came off during the ceremony as my husband and I were exchanging vows. I was mortified. The glue that was used on my wedding day was also different from what was used on my wedding day.

3. About 2 hours into my wedding, my eye lids began to feel irritated and began swelling up like a horrible allergic reaction. This was not due to any sort of rubbing, but to different eye make up compared to what was used during the trial session. The following morning, it looked as if I had been in a boxing match for several rounds. The puss that surrounded my eyes had began to crust. I ended up having to go to urgent care and paying for the cost out of pocket. The allergic reaction lasted 3 days into my honeymoon in Paris.


As a result of my experience, I have never been so disappointed in the level of customer service, particularly on my wedding day. When I contacted Appease about my experience, they were very unprofessional. Therefore, I cannot make any recommendations for Appease services to my friends or families.
