From the moment I met Michele at the consultation there was an immediate connection. She was quick to understand and happy to take the time to try out different looks on me. My wedding was held at the Saratoga National Golf club, it was a fairy tale wedding. I felt and looked the part. She did a phenominal job with my makeup and hair and it stayed the entire night.

BRIDES TO BE Hair and Makeup is hands down the best! I have worked with many many makeup artists over the years and I am confident that Michele and her team is the most talented artists you will find. The makeup applications are flawless! You can tell she is truly passionate with her art and I have personally seen her TRANSFORM clients into Glowing, Beautiful Women. It is always so impressive to me to see someone with such pure talent. Not to mention she is always professional with a fun positive attitude. Just what you need on your wedding day. I recommend Brides to Be to every bride that comes to me because I am confident they will fall in love with her and their final look for their Big Day!

A brides hair and makeup can either make or break the wedding. We all know if the bride isn't happy no one is happy. I recently got married in Saratoga NY and was searching high and low for a cosmotologist that would meet my high expectations. I must say Michele exceeded my expectations as my hair and makeup artist. She was very attentive, she knew exactly what I wanted without too much explanation. My hair which is not easy to work with. was flawless. My whole wedding party. was flawless thanks to Michele.
I would highly recommend Brides to be. Michele is so charismatic, and just simply good at what she does.

I really enjoyed working with Michele and her team! She was warm and professional and made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day. The consultation was great and we came up with perfect hair and make-up choices which made the wedding morning much less stressful. Everything was planning and confirmed in advance. Michele was very responsive to any questions, arrived right on time, and did a fantastic job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for hair and make-up services and look forward to working with her again in the future for any major events.

Michele is exceptionally a true professional as well as a quality hair and makeup artist. Her team assisted my entire Bridal Party of 7 ladies, including me! The Bride! A huge thank you to Michele and her wonderful assistants on my wedding day. I was at ease from start to finish, superb Miss Bell! Prior to booking Michele to join my wedding party, I scoured the island for a hair stylist and makeup artist, thankfully, Michele responded accordingly and now a part of the family! Bravo Michele! She is worth EVERY penny! Never skimp on your beauty and photographer ladies, the cake, DJ and flowers are temporary. :) Cheers Camille J.

We are from England so booked Michelle through website and email correspondence. I was quite nervous of how it would all turn out as we had no time for a consultation before the day.
The responses to my emails and questions was phenomenal. The vale for money was second to none compared to others I had looked at.

Michelle put me at ease straight away. Her skills and experience are wonderful and her personality shines.

I would thoroughly recommend Michelle for your hair and make up for your special day. She made me look and feel like a princess on my wedding day.
Thank you Michelle.

I had met with Michele prior to my wedding during a visit in New York for a consultation. I was most comfortable in our initial meeting with Michele, she was extremely professional, highly experienced and most importantly for me is patience. She took the time to go over details of my desired hairstyles and her own suggested hair styles which in the end is what I choose to do because it is that I had so much confidence in Michele's experience and approach for my themed wedding. Michele joined our event in St.Barths and although the heat was a kicker, I looked exactly how I imagined and more. Memorable photos of the perfection of an artist, thank you Miss Michele My Bell.

I met Michelle at an event where she did hair and make up earlier this year 2012...I really liked her work and her personality. I called her recently (September 2012), 3 days before an event (frantic inside) to do my hair & make up (praying please please please). YAY!, she was able to squeeze me into her schedule (Thank God!). She came to me (on time & ready to make me look fabulous), I was sooooo happy. My hair & make up looked superb (I didn't doubt it would). I just knew when I met her that she would be professional, kind & reliable. Wish I knew back when I got married.
Thanks Michelle! I will be calling you again ;)
