Be SURE you use Melissa and Georgetown Bride for your wedding! I did multiple trials before finding her and I'm so glad I kept trying and found her through our wedding planners suggestion. Melissa came to our house and did a trial for my hair and makeup and it was EXACTLY the way I expressed what I wanted to her, actually, it was even better than I pictured. She came back and did a trial for my mom as well as for our engagement photoshoot. My hair and makeup lasted throughout my ENTIRE wedding day and didn't even have to do any touchups throughout the evening. My hair even lasted through the next morning where I took the pins out but my hair was STILL curly. I had an outdoor wedding and I don't know how Melissa and her team did it, but all of my bridesmaids hair stayed curled throughout the entire day and they almost all wore it down. I am still in shock about how great they did because all of the girls reported their hair NEVER holds a curl but Melissa and her team found a way! Melissa was nothing but a joy to work with, was understanding of all situations, came to my house at 8pm when I was working 10+ hour days and had no other time to do the trial, the list just goes on and on. She is super pleasant to work with, fixed and tried anything I wanted to have done and is even going to come back to help my mom work on her everyday hair and makeup styling! I have never seen my mom excited about her hair and makeup but thanks to Melissa's help and skills, my mom is excited about it now! Thank you Melissa for your amazing work and for making my wedding day look better than I ever dreamt it could be! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company. You would seriously regret your decision if you didn't. Thanks again Georgetown Bride!!!

Melissa and her Georgetown Bride team did hair and makeup for our wedding on May 10th, in Alexandria, VA - for all the bridesmaids, myself, and my mom. Melissa and her team did a fantastic job - everyone loved their work, and we all received so many compliments.

I was also planning the wedding from Vietnam, so it was more difficult for us to communicate. Melissa was always flexible and patient about communication delays in general, which I really appreciated. She's a pleasure to work with, very easy-going and adaptable to meet your needs. I would highly recommend her for your event, and I would definitely go back for her services, for other events, again.

Thank you, Melissa!!

Melissa came highly recommended, but I am cynical and always want to judge for myself. My wedding was cross cultural, and my family is traditional Hindu. Melissa was able to do my hair and make up to a tee- perfectly, for a South Indian bride then switch the reception look to something more modern and playful, with a very fast turn around. She was a calming presence for a nervous bride, and even with demanding and loud family hovering at every moment, Melissa made me feel pampered, and like I was in a little oasis of my own. We had a couple of consultations, and remembered what I suggested better than I did when it came time to execute on the day of the wedding. I'm not typically appearance concious, and don't spend a lot of time on my hair and make up, but I did not feel overly painted or prodded. My hairstyle held up all night, and was still soft. My make up was pretty, and suited the occasion, but my tomboy self was still recognizable. Melissa is not only a make up artist, but she may have missed her calling as a therapist!

Melissa did my makeup for an Inaugural Ball, and she did a beautiful job. I truly felt like a princess. (And this from a person who has taken down and washed off every stylist's work except for my wonderful wedding stylist). Melissa also filled in at the last minute for a makeup artist who canceled on me the day before! Melissa is very responsive, does beautiful work, and has a fantastic energy. She's the real deal - the colors she used on me were perfect, and the updo was flawless. I'm so happy I found her.

I can not express how thrilled and thankful I was to work with Melissa on my wedding day. She has great energy, is very professional and does an amazing job. In fact, I would venture to say that Melissa has ruined me forever because I will never again look as good as I did on my wedding day. People were so impressed by my appearance and my make-up held up all night, through the dancing, all the way to the after party. Thank you!

I am not the type of person to hire someone to do my makeup but Melissa was worth every penny! She was able to to do my makeup and my bridesmaids makeup in about two and a half hours. When I finally saw what my face looked like after she was finished I couldn't believe it.I have always had blemishes and she was able to make my skin look flawless and my eye makeup was amazing! I described what look I was going for which was a smokey eye and nude lips and she did my make up exactly the way I had envisioned it in my head! I was so pleased with everything and she kept touching up our makeup when needed. Everyone was impressed and my maid of honor who is getting married next year has also decided to use Melissa. I think she does wonderful work and I highly recommend her!Thank you so much Melissa!

Melissa was excellent. As a fellow makeup artist we are the pickiest about our makeup and Melissa made me look beautiful.. She kept my makeup very natural looking but she accentuated all the right places on my face. All of my brides maids loved their face too. I love her work.

Also I looked gorgeous through out the entire night. Pictures of me getting into the limo as I left looked just as good as the pictures of me when the day began. She was also so accommodating and friendly.. We all loved being around her and her assistant - Melanie. She even stayed longer to make sure she could finish us all even though it made her a little late for another appointment. True 5 star service and treatment!!

I highly reccommend her!!!

Melissa did not end up doing my make up for my wedding due to another contract she had with a tv show, however, she found two ladies to complete my hair and make up for the big day. Melissa was flexible and provided me with a free trial by each of the ladies after I had completed my initial trial with Melissa. Melissa was accommodating and knock a small amount of since I had hired herself and she could not be present on the day. Melanie did the hair for myself and 6 others. Melaine was fantastic. She was fun and engaging and did an excellent and professional job. Jasmine did my make up, which was honestly perfect. Everyone complemented it and said it wasn't too much but it looked nice. I was very happy working with Melanie and Jasmine! Melissa did an excellent job finding professionals to come in on my day of. Both of them were on time, professional, and flexible!
