I was so pleased with my hair stylist and makeup artist for my wedding from Gloss and Glam! They both did an extraordinary job on me and my wedding party. The trials I had for both went very well, and they were super receptive to my wants for hair/makeup. They arrived right on time day of and set up quickly so we could get started right away. Everything was timed perfectly and both hair/makeup lasted all night. Thank you so much!!!

Firstly, I will say that James did amazing makeup for my trial and wedding. I know a lot about makeup and had 2 trials I was unhappy with before I stumbled onto this company. They assured me I will love James and he is the top level (read most expensive level) of their offered services.

Now things I didn't love -
Then leading up to the wedding, I kept sending communications to the sales lead and somehow the changes I needed to make were not being reflected in updated schedule for all bridesmaids and mothers getting make up done. I was told there was confusion etc but I did go over all final details on phone. Well the day that the make up artists arrived (by the way, they were on time - all good!) they did not have the updated schedule we discussed and also did not have extras selections such as eyelashes which I also discussed. They each carried extra lashes with them so crisis averted but I was not happy I had to have one of my bridesmaids read out the final schedule I DISCUSSED AND EMAILED TO OFFICE to keep our day on track.

It gets worse - As I am on my honeymoon, I keep getting calls and emails from the office saying to pay for the extra 2 people we added day of (mind you - one I didn't approve but no one asked me if it was ok to add her to schedule - no big deal, just another $250). I told the woman I dealt with previously here is my credit card info - just charge my card. She begins to tell me how I need to send in a signed authrorization form...once again on my honeymoon as I am on a somewhat remote island at this point.

I had done several hair and makeup trials with a handful of different companies before choosing Gloss and Glam; I just felt that I needed to do my due diligence and no one was really hitting the nail on the head. Gloss and Glam assigned me James (hair) and Erik (makeup) who both knocked it out of the park! After supplying reference photos, and listening carefully to what I had in mind, did want, and didn't want- they got it 100% right and did an incredible job. One thing I noticed about other makeup trials was that the foundation looked SO heavy and anything but natural; Erik make me look luminous, while still prepping me for a day of dancing, occasional tears and photos. James made all of the flower girls and bridesmades' hair look wonderful and did a great job on both my Mom and my now mother-in-law; he listened carefully kept my hair shiny and bouncy, while still making it stay put for an entire day in my updo with fresh flowers. Bonus: they were a total pleasure to be around. I actually can't wait to find an occasion to hire them again- and I have every intention of doing so!

I ended up booking gloss and glam after a horrible trial. I had Anna and Rachel. I was blown away and loooooooved what they did. I booked them on the spot and also decided to gift my bridesmaids with hair/makeup. 3 weeks to my wedding I emailed Rachel to say one of my bridesmaids has cancer and to be sensitive to the fact that she wears a wig, etc... No response. So I emailed their main email. The new manager emailed me back that Rachel (my makeup artist) was no longer with the company. Uh, what??? When were they going to tell me this??? Then I'm told Nikki the owner was in the hospital so she couldn't get back to me. In the meantime I'd recommended them to a friend (based on my trial with Rachel/Anna) and the makeup person no-showed for my friends trial! I was mortified!!!
Finally Nikki calls me back and says she'll send someone to do a new trial. Ok, fine... I've already paid in full so sure..Nikki says they'll show the new makeup artist pictures and will recreate what Rachel did..the person shows up 20 mins late and I hated what she did. She had no clue about the situation or what i wanted, nor had she seen pictures. thank god id taken some of my own. Nikki sends yet another person... It was better but not the same. I asked Nikki if I could contact Rachel directly and she told me a crazy story about why they let Rachel go. Mind you my wedding is in 2 weeks! So fine, I'm a little freaked out but I agree to use the last girl who did my makeup.
As for my hair/makeup... The makeup ended up being beautiful, but the hair wasn't what we'd done in the trial. I wanted very loose waves with one side back but not severe to my head. I had such tight curls I was brushing them out and trying to loosen them all night. And the side that was back looked slicked down. I was bummed as it just wasn't what I was going for. Overall I feel like I spent a ton of money and I had jut the strangest experience ever with this company. It just added so much stress to my planning and day.

Working with Nikki on getting a quote for me and my 2 friends for my wedding was done efficiently over email 6 montgs before the wedding. The closer we got to the wedding date though, the longer it took Nikki to respond to setting a date for our trial. It all worked out in thw end, with some tolerance for a little disorganization, and Lydia gave me a look that was both natural and recognizable in the photos. Lydia was so receptive about toning down on makeup and hair and she was a great comforting presence on the morning of the wedding. Highly recommended!

My advice, to all the brides out there looking for a great place to do your makeup and hair, is book Gloss and Glam! When I was looking for a hair and makeup artist I was really nervous. I mean it was for my wedding day! The most special day in a girl’s life! You want everything to be perfect. So trust me when I say that perfect place is Gloss and Glam. Out of all the companies I've been to, they honestly wanted me to look my absolute best for my wedding day. I'm so happy I chose them. Book Alex and Allison!

So I'm a perfectionist. I need everything to be perfect and exactly how it looked in my dreams. I went to four places looking for a hair and makeup artist. Either they weren't perfect for me or I for them. I honestly stressed people out because every detail needs to be exact. Hey, I only plan on getting married once! My mom booked me a trial appointment with Gloss and Glam behind my back and I was never more grateful. I mean they were absolutely perfect! I told them what I wanted and they gave it to me exactly! It was a perfectionist dream to meet people so efficient. I booked them right on the spot for my wedding day! I couldn't risk the chance someone else booking them before me. Needless to say my wedding was absolutely perfect! I would HIGHLY recommend them! I used two senior artists; Nikki ad Alex. They were more expensive but worth it!

For some reason when I put makeup on myself it smudges or runs. I swear I put eyeliner on a regular basis and I look great but after about an hour my eyeliner starts to run and I start to look like a raccoon. No matter what I tried this always happens. So I was really worried that on my wedding day I would have to run to the bathroom about a million times to fix my eyes. When I booked my trials I explain this to many makeup artists and they told me it just the liner I’m using. But after they put their makeup on me it still ran after about an hour or so. When I booked Gloss and Glam I told Lindsey my problem and she told me not to worry that my makeup was going to stay and I wouldn’t have to run and fix my eyes once. I’m glad to say she was right. Not only did my makeup stay but so did my hair! I’m really glad I chose Gloss and Glam. I looked at all my picture and no raccoon eyes for me! I dance and sweated the whole night and in the pictures it’s as if I didn’t sweat a drop. Lindsey and Moet really know how to make you look pretty for hours.

My experience with gloss and glam is divided up into two categories. The first was the process of getting in touch with someone and booking my wedding hair and then the next is the actual hair on the day of my wedding.

Booking with Gloss and Glam was a little bit tedious. There was a lot of back and forth emailing to firm everything up and then the person I was communicating with was on vacation for a bit and so then I didn't hear anything for a while. The emails all come from and info@ address - which is really confusing because it seems like spam. When the owner, Nikki, finally got back in touch with me, the rates and minimums that were initially quoted were not correct. After some back and forth, we were able to get everything straightened out and I was able to book Anna for my wedding hair.

I had a wonderful experience with Anna. I scheduled the trial for about 2 months before the wedding. She was amazing at looking at the pictures I had for inspiration and executing them. I wanted loose and soft hair but up as the back of my dress was open. I wanted a soft braid detail worked in as well. We did a few takes and then took pictures and a video of the finished product. On my wedding day, everything went off without a hitch. Anna also did my mom, mother-in-law, and step-mom's hair and they all look perfect.

In my wedding pictures, (taken by Bia Sampaio if you're looking for a photographer!) my hair looks beautiful and soft. The best part is that my hair is just a nice accent to how I look and is not the focus of the pictures.

I would recommend Gloss adn Glam, but be prepared to be patient while you go through the booking process.

I'm so not a photogenic person! But with Annie on my side all my pictures looked beautiful! My face tends to look shiny in pictures but not on my wedding day! Gloss and Glam made sure I look simply beautiful on my special day. And I'm proud to show my wedding pictures! Thank you Annie! Also a big thanks to Elyse for spending an hour on the phone with me when I first called! I had a million questions. FYI, I did my trial at home in NYC, and then they came to my venue in NJ! It was a huge help!
