Darla and her assistant are amazing. Creative, fast, professional, you name it. I've worked with her before and I hope to get the chance to work with her again. I had so many complements on how stunning my hair and makeup were, my bridesmaids and mother also looked phenomenal. Darla is so talented and always fun to work with. Her ideas and creations are fresh and unique.

Darla was fantastic! I had an idea of how I wanted my hair for the wedding, but I was having a hard time conveying it in words; when I first met Darla, she asked me some general questions and said she knew what I wanted and she was right! My hair was absolutely perfect! She also did by bridesmaid's hair and my mom's hair. Everyone was overjoyed with their hair and everyone's hair looked awesome at the end of the night too! She has a great personality and she is a perfectionist, which I can relate too. Thank you Darla!

Darla was recommended to me by two different brides, and they told me she is a hot commodity so to book early!! And lets just say, she is amazing!!! She is sooo sweet and so genuinely nice!! She truly cares how you look on your wedding day. At the hair and make up trial, she takes detailed pictures so you will look the same on wedding day. She is also very organized by giving you a timeline of how the day will flow. I absolutely loved her and would defnitely recommend her to everyone!!

If you think about it, your hair and makeup person is the one vendor you will spend your ENTIRE wedding day with. During all the jitters, nerves, freak outs, anxiety, surreal-ness and what-ifs, you need to have someone whom you not only trust to do a good job, but whom you also trust to see you at your most vulnerable. I spent my wedding day feeling as though I had just come out of surgery -- I was limp, couldn't talk, was freezing in 75-degree weather, etc etc. I wasn't myself and Darla (and Julie) didn't mind that I was a total whackadoo: she bonded with my girls, had a great time, listened without being intrusive and was extraordinarily professional, working steadily and quickly with a perfectionist's eye for detail at the same time.

Without seeing them beforehand, she took six very different women and made their hair and makeup worthy of any red carpet. I'm serious. I've had awful makeovers from professionals before, but Darla is why they created the term "makeup artist." I looked like the most beautiful version of myself. The way I always imagined I might look in some fairy tale. No, I lie. I couldn't possibly have imagined looking this flawless. I looked the way I wanted to feel, and when I finally saw myself in the mirror, I saw nothing I didn't like. Because of that, I was able to snap out of my trippy state and pull myself together so I could get excited about my wedding! She made me feel like this was MY special day. That _I_ was radiant. That when all eyes were on me, I could be proud of that because everything about me was beautiful. Darla was the vendor whose importance I totally underestimated, but when she finished with me at 3:30pm, that's when the magic began.

Darla did a fabulous job. I booked her for hair only and at my request she allowed for every bridesmaid to pick their own hair- something I greatly appreciated. I have very frizzy hair and I was worried about it staying neat the day of the wedding. I told her I did not want my hair to move and she listened. She gave me a great style and I did not have to worry about it once.

I booked Darla Stafford for hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids almost 15 months before the big day because I wanted to be positive that I was going to look fabulous! I am so thankful for Darla and Julie's talent. I have never seen getting ready for a wedding go so smoothly. They are incredibly talented, charming and personable. I am so lucky that I was able to be referred to them so that we could all look amazing on the big day. Thanks again :)
