If Giselle is available on your wedding date BOOK HER NOW! I loved working with Giselle. She did wonders for myself, my mom, my bridesmaids and flower girls. Everybody's hair looked stunning. Originally I was going to book "Updo for I Do's", but after my hair trial with them, I was not impressed. I was kind of upset I already paid for a hair trial, but I paid for another one with Giselle, and what a difference! She is on another level. I liked everything we tried with my hair, so it was very hard to settle on a specific look. At the first trial she gave me some tips of what to do to get my hair ready for the big day. I LOVED my hair on my wedding day. It looked amazing and stayed up all night through the wedding and after party. Not a hair moved out of place. Even the little flower girls' hair stayed intact all night. I highly recommend Giselle.

Giselle was an absolute delight to have as my hair stylist for my wedding day. I had 8 bridesmaids and myself getting hair styled and Giselle, not only got all their hair done ahead of schedule, but completely delivered on each bridesmaids desired hair style. My bridesmaids could not stop raving about how quickly and well done Giselle's services were. I would absolutely recommend Giselle to anyone looking for an amazing, professional, and personable hair stylist for their big day!

After searching and searching for a hair professional for my wedding day, I found Giselle. Giselle is so talented and extremely patient. She will work with you until you are completely happy and she is so meticulous and has so many tricks up her sleeve, I truly do not think there is anything Giselle cannot do. Giselle handled my very particular mother very well, even agreeing to do a trial for my mom as well. At the trial, Giselle tweaked my mom's hair cut to ensure it looked perfect for the wedding day. Giselle is a sweetheart and was just the calming influence I needed on a bit of a stressful wedding day, as we had to move the outdoor ceremony inside at the last minute and that decision needed to be made right in the middle of hair and makeup. Giselle did not let it interfere and did an amazing job. Even though Giselle is probably one of the most expensive wedding hair professionals, I am sure it was worth it and did not have to worry at all about anything related to hair.

Gizelle did amazing things with my wimpy, thin hair! She made it look fabulous and I got many compliments from my friends and family! I have used her for several formals as well as my wedding and rehearsal dinner and several of my friends have also used her and loved her. I will never call on anyone else when I need my hair done for a special occasion! She is extremely flexable and was willing to come to my house at 5:15 AM on the morning of my wedding. She is super sweet and fun and amazingly fast. She is very reasonably priced and gave me some special little extras for no extra charge.

Giselle is amazing! She is so easy to work with (which was great because I was planning a DC wedding from Connecticut). From the first trial, it was clear I was in good hands. She got my "vision" right away. On my wedding day she did my five bridesmaids hair and it came out great. They each wanted something different, but she was able to still make it all look cohesive. Most of all I loved that she made all of our hair look soft and natural, not the clique wedding/prom hair.

To sum up the amazing professionalism and wealth of experience Giselle brought to our wedding day let me just say that she did hair for 8 of us -- all by herself! Different age ranges, a mix of updos and styles, and a range of hair types. She handled it all with ease and kept us on time. She was calm, so nice to work with and never did I worry about how it would all turn out. Giselle's wealth of experience and true expertise is clear. Also, I had to change my hair trial about a dozen times due to schedule conflicts and Giselle was super about dealing with all my emails to reschedule. On wedding day my hair was absolutely perfect. Based on Giselle's recommendations I added filler (I didn't even know what that was before meeting Giselle!) and it made such a difference in my updo with the headpiece I had purchased. I was so happy with my look on wedding day. She's a true professional and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to any bride considering her for the big day!

I loved my hair - Giselle did a great job! I planned very last minute and didn't have time for a run-through..she was very flexible and we just met the day of, I sent a few photos of myself and she was able to do exactly what I wanted (but even better than I had imagined). I brought some fresh flowers which she used and she worked fast but was very attentive to detail and checked with me throughout that it was what I wanted. She was also super friendly and accommodating - the studio is in her home and my mom and friend were able to come and hang out while I got my hair done. I would recommend Giselle to anyone - super professional and experienced yet laid back!

Giselle was amazing to work with. She was able to effortlessly style my hair, my mom’s hair, and my 8 bridesmaids, with 10 unique and beautiful hairstyles! I only had a vague vision of how I wanted my hair styled on my wedding day, but during my two trials with Giselle leading up to the big day, she pulled together the most beautiful hair style for my wedding day! I found Giselle to be very professional, easy to work with and accommodating. We booked Giselle for 8 hours and she was there for all of those 8 hours, ready to help whenever we needed it! My hair stayed in place for over 14 hours, even with some rain throughout the day! By the end of the day, my hair still appeared in its original style. I received so many compliments and I was only too pleased to share Giselle’s information with everyone and anyone who inquired! I highly recommend Giselle; you will be very pleased with your experience!

Gretchen! Thank you!!
The 8 hours is a wonderful option for large bridal parties. It guarantees touch ups on everyone, at any time, any location. This is also helpful when you need to take off your veil before and after pictures and ceremony! It's all about comfort and convienience!!! I find more and more brides are opting for this especially when having more than 5 people. Yet this package is available for any size party. It just ensures that security for day of them I'm not off to another wedding. I'm really happy to hear how long it lasted too. Wow 14 hours is a long time and I know that having this last so long that it let you relax about your hair during the event.
Thank you kindly for your sweet review and I hope to see you again for any event. It can be for a black tie event etc. Truely, Giselle

Giselle was a joy to work with! From the moment we met her at the trial through the wedding planning process and on the big day, she made both me and my mom feel extremely comfortable with her genuine kindness and great expertise. She understood what type of partial updo I wanted, created it in a more beautiful way than I even had in mind at the trial, and then was flexible when I decided to tweak it a bit on the wedding day. It turned out to be exactly what I'd hoped for. She is very talented when it comes to working with hair, and with no prior knowledge of my bridesmaids' hair types or personality types, she worked with them to create seven different gorgeous hairstyles on the day-of that they all loved and that I loved on them too. I've had my hair done by a variety of stylists for many weddings, and never have partial and full updos held up on a summer day in Virginia the way that her creations did. I don't think a hair had moved out of place when the reception ended at midnight! If you are having an elegant affair and want an experienced and detail-oriented hairstylist, I highly recommend Giselle!

She understood what type of partial updo I wanted, created it in a more beautiful way than I even had in mind at the trial, and then was flexible when I decided to tweak it a bit on the wedding day. It turned out to be exactly what I'd hoped for. She is very talented when it comes to working with hair, and with no prior knowledge of my bridesmaids' hair types or personality types, she worked with them to create seven different gorgeous hairstyles on the day-of that they all loved and that I loved on them too. I've had my hair done by a variety of stylists for many weddings, and never have partial and full updos held up on a summer day in Virginia the way that her creations did. I don't think a hair had moved out of place when the reception ended at midnight! If you are having an elegant affair and want an experienced and detail-oriented hairstylist, I highly recommend Giselle! Read less

Thank you kindly for such a sweet review and for recognizing my specialty! It was a pleasure to be of service to you and always happy when my brides are pleased. I'm so happy the hair held up well. I know that's key to such a long day (dancing, hugging and many hours gone by). I hope to see images and please call on me any time for any special event in the future (discounts, advance sales and product recommendations to follow). Sincerely, Giselle

There are truly no words to describe how AMAZINGLY TALENTED Giselle is or how beautiful she made me feel on my wedding day. If you are looking for a hair stylist for your wedding or any special occasion, you do not need to look any further! Giselle is EXCEPTIONAL and will make you feel more beautiful than you could ever imagine!! She was an absolute JOY to work with from the very start - her incredible kindness, responsiveness, and unparalleled talent brought my dream look to life! Giselle took my fine lifeless hair and created the most beautiful updo I have ever seen!! At your hair trials, Giselle works with you to get an idea of how you want to look and listens closely to your feedback. She takes detailed notes and pictures so you can see exactly how the hair style photographs. On my wedding day, Giselle arrived early and put me immediately at ease. She is a perfectionist and made sure every piece of hair was perfectly in place and secure. She also did a FANTASTIC job with my bridesmaids' hair - who all LOVED her as well! In spite of the hot temperatures, humidity, taking my veil on and off, and lots of dancing, my hair held perfectly all night long (which has never happened before!). Without a doubt, working with Giselle is the best decision you can make as her talent is beyond compare! I can never thank her enough for how beautiful she made me feel and would work with her again in an heartbeat for any future special occasion!

Giselle did such an amazing job styling my hair for my wedding day, it was exactly what I had envisioned. I was going to add clip in hair for the day of my wedding but after meeting with Giselle for my trial run, she ended up putting in extensions about a month and half before the wedding. No one could tell I even had them in, it matched my hair exactly (color and texture)! I got so many compliments on my hair during that time and especially on the day of my wedding. Giselle was very patient with me wanting to change the style a couple of times until it was exactly right. She was on time and her prices were very reasonable. Giselle is very sweet and she keep me calm while getting ready for the wedding. I will definitely call her for future special events and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants extensions or a fabulous hair do for their big day!

It was great working with you and I'm so happy you enjoyed the extensions! I know that thery are very helpful and do build up lots of volume and texture. Many brides opt for this and it really makes a huge difference. The goal was to have your style look fab all the way around, at any angle. The extensions I use are fantastic! Offered in so many textures, lengths and colors. You looked amazing !! Stay in touch !! Giselle ;)

Amazing vendor! I originally worked with another vendor, but after a trial run it was apparent that a hair stylist really does need true talent in order to work magic. That's where Giselle came in. Giselle is extremely talented, a true professional and a joy to work with. Her calm and easy going demeanor will relax any bride. Her skill will definitely enthuse any bride. She created a wonderful style for my wedding day, and did an equally fantastic job with my mother's hair - which is usually limp and fine. Few things feel as good on your wedding day than truly feeling beautiful. Well, you have come to the right place with Giselle. She will undoubtedly work with you to achieve the look you want and you will feel nothing but beautiful on your special day. Recommended without reservation.

Thank you kindly for your sweet comments....the trials are essential and really do help eliminate the small details that could make a big difference on the day of the wedding, so it's best to review as much as possible well before hand.

It was such a pleasure working with you all and hope to see some images soon!

Giselle is absolutely amazing! I went to her after I wasn't happy with the person I originally booked. She was so sweet and accommodating and she really worked with me to get my vision right! She's patient and extremely talented! She's pretty much a hair genius! I have extremely thin and fine hair that is also damaged from dying it so much. Giselle suggested to me that I purchase the clip on extensions to give my hair fullness and length. I purchase two sets of extensions (real remy hair) and she clipped them all in. I had the prettiest, hair the entire night, and nothing came out. She really knows how to make sure they are tightly secured and the curl lasted all night with a slight wave at the end of the night since I danced for 4 hours straight!
Ladies if you want picture perfect hair that lasts all night, go to Giselle! I promise you will not be disappointed!

If you want the most amazing hairstyle(s) ever - then look no further than Giselle! She is so talented and made me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day along with my family and bridesmaids. I was slightly worried with the amount of people we had getting their hair done and thought we might get behind schedule. Giselle is so awesome that she not only created extremely fabulous hair dos - she was actually ahead of schedule. I purchased extensions from Giselle for the big day which is one of the best decisions I made. People have been commenting on my hair every day since the wedding. The best part of it is, I can keep them and reuse them! They are totally worth every penny! I can't wait for the next time I can have Giselle do my hair and will definitely recommend her to every bride I know!

I really enjoyed working with you and I know that the extensions make such a big difference with volume and length. Their super easy to reuse and the quality is fantastic.....staying on a good timeline is essential and I usually do try to run ahead of schedule by building in a bit of cushion time, works beautifully!

Also, we had an unexpected last minute addition to our party and not only was Giselle able to squeeze in the extra hair-do, but she did so graciously.

Muse Salon was SO pleased with the trainging services by Giselle. After months of research we found someone who is known to be THE BEST with event styling and brought them to Biringham, AL to teach us the tricks to her trade. Our salon already provided event styling services but knew we could be better and boy did we learn a lot! Not only will we forever be better stylist for working with Giselle, we also feel as if we have a new friend in the D.C. area!

Many thanks for a wonderful training weekend! We look forward to training with Giselle again in the future and possibly doing joint venture projects with events.

Giselle was absolutely wonderful to work with. We booked her pretty last minute, and I couldnt have been any more pleased with her work. My hair came out *exactly* how i had envisioned it looking! I think she ended up doing a total of 7 people's hair the day of the wedding and everyone was extremely pleased with the results. She arrived well ahead of the scheduled time, and did a fabulous job of staying on track. All in all i would HIGHLY recommend her! Also, as an added bonus, she is super patient and wants to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your look. I almost opted not to do the trial because we were trying to save on some costs, but Im so happy that I ended up doing it because it was well worth it. She really was great and I'm sure that she'll continue to make lots of brides happy in the future!

Giselle was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding! She worked with me to achieve the style I wanted for my wedding and it turned out GORGEOUS! I had several hair trials because I could not make up my mind and at each trial Giselle achieved any look I described or showed to her--that's how good she is, and not to mention she is super fast and efficient! She is also a perfectionist--so you can be assured that any style she creates will be flawless! On my wedding day, I was beyond happy with the final result and my hair stayed in place the entire night without a worry. I had people coming up to me and raving about the style and asking who my stylist was--that's how beautiful it looked. Best of all it looked so natural--not forced. Giselle is incredibly responsive, flexible, kind and wonderful to work with. If you get the chance to have Giselle as your hair stylist for the wedding--or any other special event--take it!!!

She's unbelievability gifted (very knowledgeable about hair products/types), easy to communicate with, extremely detailed oriented and fun to work with. Thanks to her I was completely relaxed on my wedding day and knew my hair would not only hold throughout the day but would remain picture perfect from morning until evening. If you want that perfect look and peace of mind, book Giselle.

I have worked with Giselle a few times now for various bridal shows, and every time, she does not disappoint! When it was time to get married, I already knew who I wanted to do my hair. Giselle is extremely professional and she can do any type of style you could possibly want. She did a very natural half-up/half-down style on me that was perfect, it wasn't too overdone and it stayed up the entire night (even in 90 degree heat). She also gives you a small styling bag to go for touch-ups. Giselle was really friendly, flexible and prompt-- she stuck to the schedule and all of the girls were done on time. I always enjoy working with her!

Sincere thanks....details are key!

It's important to pay attension to the small details likethe flyawys, balance eof the style, shaping of the style, product usage, veil placement; which all coordinate with each person's individual look.

Thank you for your kind review and hope to stay in touch. Giselle

You were such an easy bride to work with; confident and calm, mostly knowing what you wanted! This really does set the tome for the day and allowed me to execute the style in a timely fashion as well as expressing my styling creativity for your look.

The entire bridal party was wonderful to work with and when styling for a large group it's essential to have everyone know what they want in advance...I can't wait to see more images....Thank you!!! Giselle

I received so many compliments during the evening and so did my sister in law. She is very well known around DC and Maryland area, and I am not suprised why. What also is important on a wedding day is to work wit someone who has great personality and who puts you at ease (if there is a need). If you want to look your best, I highly recommend Giselle

You knew what you wanted, and helping to achieve volume, and durability was key. When working with hair styles it's so important to factor in the textures and hair products.

I did two trials with her before my wedding and I can say that with all of the stress and anxeity I had on the day of my wedding I knew that my hair would be great no matter what. We had a long day of photos in hot humid DC weather before the ceremony and my hair looked just as nice at my ceremony as it did in the morning. My bridesmaids, mother, and flower girl also looked amazing. I can recommend Giselle with no hesitaions. Thank you Giselle!!

Where do I begin? Giselle was one of the best decisions I made during my wedding planning process! After running into some awful/inexperienced hair dresses I was SO relieved to find out Giselle was available for my wedding events...Yes, there were 3 days and I still don't know how I got through it! I was also concerned because I was having a traditional Pakistani wedding, that required me to wear a heavy veil on most of the days, and I needed to make sure my hair would hold up through the night. So it was VERY important for me to find an experienced hair dresser that would deliver. Luckily Giselle was that and MORE! She listened to all of my concerns, took consideration for what I wanted....and most importantly DELIVERED! I was more than happy with her work. Giselle was one person I was able to undoubtedly count on during this whole experience and provided support whenever I needed it! Trust me ladies this is important especially with all of the other stresses going on! She arrived on time (ON THE DOT) every day, and was ready to go no matter what was happening. She was professional, sweet, and most importantly made me look AMAZING!!!! I had no issues with her whatsoever!!! She made my bridesmaids, mother, and sister look absolutely beautiful! and made sure everyone was happy with their looks. I would recommend her to EVERYONE! Especially South Asian brides, trust me she knows what she is doing....Giselle is simply the BEST!!!

Giselle recently styled my hair, my bridesmaids hair, and my mother's hair for my wedding and did the most amazing job!! The weather was humid and hot (well over 100 degrees!) but our hair held up all day. This is an incredible feat considering my hair has never held a curl for over an hour and has no volume whatsoever. I could not be happier with the way our hair turned out.

She is incredibly professional and flexible. She takes pictures during the trials and makes notes in order to provide the look you want on your wedding day. I changed my hairstyle a week before the wedding and she was more than happy to make adjustments. The night before my wedding we lost electricity at my parents house and we had to ship the whole bridal party to a hotel the following morning. Giselle was right there in the lobby when we got there and stayed until right before we left making final touches. You cannot ask for a more reliable, hard-working, and talented hairstylist. She is, as my wedding coordinator says, a "hair wizard".

I recommend Giselle to any bride who wants to look fabulous on her wedding day. She will not disappoint!!

Working with Giselle was amazing! From the moment I emailed her and set up our trial run she was quick to respond. I had my trial run in January for my wedding in May and I brought photographs of hair style ideas. She then got to work and the first time she did my hair was perfect! I loved it and she then took photographs and took notes to have for the wedding day. On my wedding day she was so accomidating. A few extra bridesmaids decided at last minute that they wanted their hair done as well. She had no problem fitting them. My hair looked even more beautiful the day of my wedding and stayed perfectly the whole night while I danced up a storm. I have received so many compliments on my hair from that day! It was Perfect! I would advise you to seek out Giselle for your wedding, prom or whatever special occasion it is. She will not let you down!

Giselle was great to work with - I'm so happy that I found her! When I went for my trial I had an idea of what I wanted. I brought some pictures and described the look I was going for and Giselle created a beautiful updo. I also bought a hair filler from Giselle during my trial, which made my updo fuller and even more beautiful. On my wedding day, we met up in Giselle's lovely studio with my make-up artist. Giselle had juice for us and made us all feel so welcome. After Giselle styled my hair, I had my make-up done while Giselle styled my mom's and my flower girl's hair. My mom even said that Giselle styled my mom's hair better than her regular stylist! I didn't have any specific ideas for my flower girl, so Giselle worked her magic and the result was so adorable! It was incredibly hot and humid during my outdoor wedding and my hair stayed perfectly in place! Thank you, Giselle!

Thank you so much! Yes, that was a very humid day so am glad your hair held up! Pre planning is key, and you did a great job of that! The fillers really do hold the shaping very well, especially when you place it at the crown ara. That always helps with the lift and keeping in the veil......I now how 2 locations so other than my residential studio in Rockville, I also work out of Bethesda off of Woodmont Ave. I would love to see your final proofs when they become available and hope to stay in touch for any other special event in the future.

Giselle is a magician when it comes to doing hair. I don't know how she manages it, but she creates gorgeous up-dos that last all night through all kinds of wear and tear (think taking a veil in and out between photos and the ceremony and dancing) without feeling sticky or hard. I also had Giselle cut my hair in the months leading up to the ceremony, and she did a better job than my regular stylist! Giselle is also fearless when it comes to trying new things. I asked her to echo some details from my dress in my hairstyle, and she did it flawlessly. I also learned a lot from Giselle about products to use in my hair, and different ways I can do my hair for work--she is a great teacher. I can't say enough good things about Giselle. I hope I have some fancy events in my future so I can justify having her do my hair again soon!

It's been a pleasure working with you through the trial runs and on your big day. I loved your style and will upload your image to my site that I took of you...hope to get some images from your photographer as well!
Working with your extensions really enhanced the style, am glad you choose to work with them. They looked really natural.....

I look forward to seeing you again, as for all my brides who return for hair services, you are my valued client that I'd like to keep in touch with for any special event.

Please call on me any time!

Sincerely, Giselle

Giselle is a truly gifted hair stylist! It is amazing to watch her create a fabulous updo in as little as 15 minutes. After she styled my hair (along with 8 others ladies) at my best friend’s wedding last year, I knew I had to hire her for my own wedding.

On my wedding day, Giselle styled my hair along with my 3 bridesmaids, my mother, and my flower girl. She works quickly, efficiently, and flawlessly. She was there a few minutes early so she could set-up her work station and get started with the first person right on time. She adhered to the schedule (yet was very flexible with adjustments to it) and even finished with about twenty minutes to spare. My bridal party and I received so many compliments on our hair, and the updos stayed beautiful all night long with very few minor hairspray touch-ups (Giselle gives you a small bottle of hairspray and extra bobby pins for this).

Giselle takes her time to make sure she understands what it is that the bride truly wants. She is as sweet as can be and clearly takes great pride in her work. At the trials, she works with you to try out multiple styles and takes many photos for you to reflect on once you leave her studio. And believe me, she is not satisfied until you are satisfied with the end result. I would highly recommend Giselle to any bride who wants a beautiful hairstyle on her wedding day! Thanks Giselle!!

Thanks so much for the sweet review, it was great to see you again.

I truly loved your style, very classic and am so happy we had the chance to do a few trials to make sure the look was perfect on your big day. Such a great, friendly bridal party!
Glad there no was no need for major touch ups, you are so right, I am a perfectionist so I do make sure everyone is happy before I leave every event.

I would love to see the pictures and post them to my site when you get the link. Please keep me in mind for any future special event, holidays, anything fun!

It was really a pleasure ! All my very best---Giselle

Giselle was AMAZING! She did my hair along with all seven of my bridesmaids (down and updos). Everyone looked fantastic. She is fun, reliable, easy to work with, FAST yet efficient, and creative. She does multiple weddings a weekend so she knows how to work quickly and within a tight timetable. She was truly a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!

I never usually write reviews but I am so happy with my experience with Giselle that I had to write one. Let me start by saying that I had to plan my entire wedding (in DC) from Australia so I relied heavily upon reviews on this site to decide which vendors to use. Giselle had so much positive feedback I thought I would be in good hands and I was absolutely right. She was so professional throughout our time together and was quick to respond to any questions I had. We had two trials together and even when I thought I had the style I wanted I ended up changing it the day of my wedding. Giselle was so accommodating and said it was fine to change my mind, that we would do whatever I wanted. I couldn't believe how quickly (and perfectly) she whipped up my new hairstyle, all without any trial beforehand. I cannot recommend her enough and could not have imagined having anyone else do my hair on my special day. Thank you Giselle!

It was so wonderful meeting you!

I know it's not easy planning a wedding from overseas and am thankful all went well. You planned well in advance! The key with any service is being flexible so having your style changed up on the day of the wedding was not a problem at all. It was classic and beautiful and can't wait to post them to my site when thier ready.

Your feedback is so important so thanks so much for your lovely review and look forward to staying in touch when I make it to Australia! Hopefully very soon!!! I love the destination events....

It was lovely meeting you. Planning from London or any destination must be tough but we pulled it off! I loved working with your hair, using the new method in wrapping the hair around the iron. This way your curls stayed lifted and seperated.

The extensions were a hit and am so happy you were pleased.

I appreciate your images and will post them when I can to my site....

All my best , and if you ever need me to travel to London, pls call me!

Destination weddings/events are my specialty!

Giselle was amazing! My hair has never looked better and the style lasted all night -- I was so happy. A friend commented that my hair looked as good at the end of the reception as it did when I walked down the aisle!

In addition, Giselle patiently worked with me to find a style that looked good and I felt comfortable with. I appreciated Giselle's expertise as I worked with her to find a style that suited me, but would also work well in the high humidity of DC in July.

On the wedding day itself, Giselle's calm presence was a huge asset and she was so fun to work with. Giselle also worked efficiently with my mom, sister, and the flower girl to make sure that the important women at the wedding had amazing hair! My mom is still talking about how good her hair looked, and she is so impressed that Giselle knew exactly what to do with her thick, wavy hair within seconds of meeting her.

I would recommend Giselle to all brides without hesitation! Book her while you still can!

How are you?

Thank you so kindly for your comments for others to read your thoughts and to see how your day went with your hair. This is so helpful for others!

I loved working with you all and am pleased your hair held up (especially being 1/2 up, having looser curls.....) under this humidity. It is tough to maintain in the heat, but prepping the hair and keeping up is so important.

Your mom's hair was so thick and wonderful, so I can see where you got your beautiful hair from. Having to cut and shape her hair was essential to her style for the wedding and am glad she let me shape it up for her. It made a difference and can't wait to see you all in your pictures!!!!

Hope you will share a link soon.

Take good care and hope to see you again!!!!

You are so welcome, I loved your style!

Having your hair so soft and full of movement really flattered your facial features and dress! I can't wait to see your pictures and in fact everyone's hair was beautiful with the highlights your sister did to enhance the style.

Having a touch up bag is crucal for touch ups with the spray, pins, tissues, etc....every bride deserves one!

All my best, you all were so much fun and hope you'll count on my for any event again in the future.....Hugs---Giselle :)))

I cannot say enough about Giselle. First, as a person she is super sweet. She listens well and has so much patience. You can tell her only goal is to provide an exceptional product while making the customer happy. Second, as an stylist she really knows her craft. I had a very complicated updo that involved the addition of extensions and inserts and it felt solid as a rock and super light (considering how much I had to add to my hair). I do not have a lot of hair, but you would never have figured that on the day of my wedding. She also did my mom's hair, my flower girl's hair, and all of my bridesmaids...and they all look fabulous! And, all of our hair stayed put the entire day. Hands down one of the best decisions I made during my wedding. Oh, and we recruited her services for our rehearsal dinner. I got the long, sexy locks that I wanted, and my mom got her sophisticated up do. It really showcased her range. Thanks, Giselle!

Oh, and I am very happy she had me do two trials. We made some essential last minute changes that I knew would have been bad to make under the pressure the day of. Plus, it gave us a chance to play around with the style a bit.

It was such a pleasure working with you, thank you SO much for your review :-)

You are completely right about the trial runs, working together well in advance, planning your hairstyle and whats needed. There is no way to master this the day of the wedding because it really does take some time.

I realize that rehersal dinner is very important as well and I always offer my services since this day should be just as important with the hair. You looked amazing.....

It was great working with your mom's beautiful hairtoo, she really had the opportunity to showcase her hair due to the length and so it was a pleasure to do so at the rehersal. She seemed happy to get a little more then what she anticipated, thinking it was just the rehersal, but I know that she needed a bit more according to her dress style.

I can't wait to blog your images and post them to my site! Please stay in touch, you all were very special and sweet and would love to continue my services with you for any event in the future.

All my best, Giselle :)

You were so calm and we knew right away after doing a trial that we needed to change something. I am so glad we went with your 'feeling' of the style rather than just going with the original plan....after all it's how you actually feel on the day of the wedding!

Take care and thanks for the continued suport with referrals, this means the world to me! Growing my business through referrals is the best and most effecient way to expand and want others to have the same experience!

Thnak you!

Your curls were perfect....you prepped your hair as I suggested and that's what helped to eliminate the frizz. Very smart! Curls are a whole other ball game, thier tricky and never the same from wash to wash, so day of I had to take this into consideration when styling your hair.

I saw your final look and think your soft lace dress went along with your curls beautifully, and very romantic!

It was a very busy weekend, nonetheless, you were just as important as my bride that day too!

Hope to see you and your friends again for any other event, maybe for the holidays!

I can not say enough about how wonderful Giselle has been. Giselle provided her talent in doing my hair for my wedding, my mother, sister, bridesmaids and flower girls. Everyones hair looked absolutely perfect. I had 2 trial runs with giselle and every time I walked out very happy about how my hair looked. I thought there was no way it could possibly look better. Giselle proved me wrong though, on the day of my wedding, my hair was more than I could have ever dreamed of. I have never received so many compliments on my hair in my life. Everyones hair that she did at my wedding was perfect as well, including the flower girls whose hair looked absolutely adorable yet very elegant! Giselle arrived early. She was set up and ready to go before I even arrived! She was so professional, sweet and really wanted to make me look the best I could possibly look. She took into consideration my dress, veil and jewelry when helping me decide what hair style would be best for me and she was exactly right. Giselle has so many connections in the wedding industry and also set me up with a fabulous makeup artist who also helped pull my whole look together. The week before my wedding I had a Henna party and Giselle did my hair for that also. I would it down with extensions and Giselle applied them. It was done so naturally everyone thought it was my real hair!! I would absolutely recommend Giselle to anyone needing to have their hair done for a special occasion, she is well worth every penny and she will not stop until you are happy and your hair looks flawless. She's very easy to talk to and she listens to what you really want. I am so thankful I had her at my wedding and she will defiantly be the one to do my hair at any other event that comes up for me!!

Thank you so much Giselle!!

I can't thank you enough for your SWEETEST review, and am just so happy you and everyone was happy with their hair. You were stunning and so easy to work with the entire time. I know it takes a lot of attention when working with extensions, fillers and trying to determine the right hair piece (which by the way the broach inside your flower was a stunning look).....

It takes a few trials sometimes to knock out all the details and you planned it out just right. Knowing how the extensions will work with you facial features, the right color of your hair and length, along with you headpiece and veil make all the difference when pulling the visual together.

All my very best to you and can't wait for another special event some time!!!

Hugs!

She arrived on time and was very thorough, efficient and quick- she was able to finish a head of schedule without compromising the quality of her work.

I received so many compliments on my updo that day and best of all, it lasted all day (12 hours!)! She is definitely worth it- I highly recommend her!

Anytime I'm doing hair and someone needs a quick trim, I have my sissors to shape up any bang, split ends..... at any time, it's important to put the finishing touchs on each style.

I appreciate your kind comments, I really do love what I do and think it's crucial to stay on a good time line yet never compromising quality service.

She did hair for all the women in the wedding party, and everybody looked fantastic and felt gorgeous. Giselle came to the location, was extremely professional, and did a fantastic job interpreting what everybody wanted done with their hair. She left me complete with a kit to maintain my hair (and the flowers in it!) over the course of the evening.

She left me complete with a kit to maintain my hair (and the flowers in it!) over the course of the evening. Read less

Giselle was amazing to work with and did a phenomenal job on my hair and my bridal party's hair!!! She was so patient and really understood my vision for what I wanted on my day. When I told her I wanted a half-up hairstyle with a little bit of height in the front, she knew exactly how to accomplish want I wanted. My hair stayed all night, even with a long veil and a ton of dancing during the reception. I received so many compliments throughout the night and following the wedding about my hair. My bridesmaids and bridal party looked amazing as well, and they too received many compliments. I would definitely recommend Giselle for her quality of service, her patience, and her creativity!!

Thank you Alex!

I loved your look with your dress style, just beautiful.

The long veil is always a challenge when having it stay in place, and making it comfortable at the same time. I'm glad to hear it lasted so long especially during the dancing. I always suggest spraying to maintain the look and taking a few minutes for touch ups, really helps!

I look forward to seeing you again ! Giselle

Giselle did an amazing job at my wedding!! She is a wiz with hair- always on time and finishes on schedule. She did a beautiful very high bun for my morning Indian ceremony and completely changed my look to a very Bardot half up look for the evening reception. She is priced very well and will make everyone in the bridal party gorgeous! Everyone was amazed at how beautiful my hair looked-she put in quite a few extensions for me:) In 12 hours, she changed my hair style style twice, attached 2 heavy veils, trimmed my bangs, curled/smoothed/straightened/clipped in filler/extensions-you name it, she can do it! And then she'll do the bridal party!!
On a personal level-she is very sweet and caring. She connects with brides in a way no other vendor ever will. She gets it.

You all were such a pleasure to work with!

Each and everyone was so sweet, everyone had different looks and I can't wait to see your photos. I love working with extensions and changing up hair styles when needed, it allows for creative photos acoording to the attire. It's so importat to stay on a good time line, an agenda is key.

Having gone through a few trials is essential too since we needed to plan each step with the style, to the hair pieces, tikka, veil, hair length and texture. I love what I do and am so happy you all were pleased, it was a lot of fun too seeing the different sari's, they were gorgeous!

All my best and hope to see you again for other events as we have done in the past....warmly, Giselle :)))

Giselle did an absolutely wonderful job for myself, my mother and three bridesmaids on my wedding day, April 2nd, 2011. I live in London and got married in DC. Giselle was so accomodating with the hair trials, ideas on what might look good. I was a little bit clueless as to what style I might want and I can honestly say I got SO many compliments on my hair as did my bridesmaids on the wedding day. I had an updo which stayed perfectly the entire day and evening, even after hours of dancing. I can't thank Giselle enough for her kindness and expertise. Thank you, Giselle! You are the best!

JG,

It was a pleasure working with you!

You were so percise on what you wanted (after we decided that down was the way to go for your look), and knowing your hair texture which really helps. We knew how to prep your hair with the right amount of products, to overdirecting the hair while blowdrying it out for lots of volume, to the finishing touches (the right amount of shine, to eliminating the flyaways, to smoothing out any unevenness, etc).

Having your hair last as long as it did was a joint effort. Your pictures are just beautiful.

Your hair even though it held up for that long did not seem to be overly stiff or matted in any way.

Your earings complemented your style after all :) It being down and styled was the right choice for your facial features, to your dress style, to your jewlery type. After careful deliberation, this was the best decision.

Coming to Baltimore is my specialty. I love to travel (any where!), and know that makes a huge difference with timing on such a big day!


I wish you all the best and hope to work with you again for any event....please call on me!!!

Sincere thanks, Giselle :)

Remember the days when you just wanted to go to a salon where you gossiped your heart out and chatted with the friendly staff! I had that opportunity today when I got the service of a life time with Elegant Hair by Giselle!

I saw an ad on facebook for a new technique of permanent hair extensions (they don't damage your hair and require no glue or sewing in.. Incredible) They are simply interlocked with your hair using savvy new technology.... Giselle is a specialist. She was absolutely amazing and wonderful teaching me the ins and outs of how to take care of the extensions. She also carefully listened to my own thoughts on how I wanted my hair to look and ended up giving me a complimentary hair cut to make sure my new hair and my original hair blended in.

Everyone who has seen my hair has gone on and on about how amazing it looks! I am recommending everyone I know to get this technique done. Looks completely like Hollywood movie star hair!!

You are amazing yourself. You knew exactly what you wanted, and I really think we achieved it by working together on your style.

I am so happy you are pleased and look forward to seeing you at your maintance appt. These extensions are really wonderful because they are 100% human hair, different lengths 14", 18", 20", 22", different colors, and textures.

Permenant and temporary are offered.

They don't take any more then just over 2 hours to put in (may vary a bit per person...)!

No fuss. And to take them out it is just a pop away, no glues, very simple.
I loved your pics on FB of the before and after.

Brides can use these for any style (as well as hair fillers, found on my online store...). It's that simple.

Thanks again so much, and will see you soon---Giselle :)

I can't say enough about the fabulous job Giselle did on my wedding day! Over the course of our trials we worked to create a hairstyle that really and truly suited me. She was completely willing to work with the ideas I had in mind but not afraid to make suggestions, which I appreciated - the last thing I wanted was to be yessed to death and not know that something was unflattering! The day of my wedding, she did my hair and my three bridesmaids' hair, all of which turned out beautiful, and somehow cohesive though each was different. Also worth noting that Giselle is incredibly warm and calming, a very welcome presence on what can be a frantic day!

Recommending Giselle ten times over!

I have naturally very curly, thick hair. When I told my wedding planner, Pam Barefoot of Atrendy Wedding, that I wanted to wear my hair curly on my wedding day, she gave me just one name...Elegant Hair by Giselle. She said, "That's it, Giselle's the best for curly hair," and it didn't take me long to figure out why. Like many curly-haired girls, I've had more than my fair share of horrible haircuts and poodle-looking updo's. I knew just what I wanted and was very nervous about getting the right look. I scheduled my first trial run at Giselle's home studio 7 months before the wedding...just in case! The first thing that struck me about Giselle is how beautiful and warm she is. I immediately felt comfortable in her studio. I brought along my hairpiece, jewelry, the bolero jacket to my wedding dress, and a few pictures of straight-haired celebrities wearing the low, side-swept chignon I was envisioning. Giselle got it IMMEDIATELY. She set to work on my hair and within 45 minutes my curls looked more perfect than they ever had before. I almost told her not to put my hair in an updo at all because they looked so pretty! Giselle had me wear my little jacket so we could get the positioning of the bun just right. She noticed that my hairpiece was broken and offered to fix it. She also advised I use a small filler to boost the volume at the crown of my hair because this elongates my face, which can sometimes look round in photos. After taking photos and lots of notes, I left the studio feeling gorgeous and totally assured that my wedding day hair would be perfect. A few months later, I had Giselle trim my hair, adding some light layers in the front. To be honest, I hadn't had a haircut in over a year because I was so tired of bad cuts. Giselle's cut was GREAT. She really listened and incorporated my knowledge of my own hair. It was also really helpful that she knew exactly what my wedding hair would look like and how much length we needed to keep. Giselle and I did a second trial run the week before my wedding. We were joined by my makeup artist, Leah McKay, and it was absolutely invaluable to see my wedding hair and make-up together. It was so much fun -- we were laughing and chatting like old friends! We were able to make last minutes adjustments, like adding more curly texture around my face and using some products that I get good results with at home. I even decided to go a little stronger with the makeup because my elegant hair could totally carry it off! Giselle also fixed my hairpiece so it looked perfect. On the morning of the wedding, Giselle came to my hotel suite and did my updo in record time. My hair felt comfortable but solid as a rock. She snipped a few little fly-away pieces and I was left with perfect, elegant, shiny hair that retained my natural texture. I felt like the absolute best possible version of ME. Even better, my hair lasted through TWELVE HOURS of photos, changing, hugging, and dancing. My mother-in-law is still talking about how many compliments I got on my hair. Any bride with curly hair who doesn't want to have to bust out the straightening iron on her wedding day -- BOOK GISELLE! Curly hair CAN look shiny, soft, and elegant! I can't wait to work with her again in the future -- and I won't be letting anybody else cut my hair from now on, either!

You are amazing!

I first want to thank you so much for this heart felt review. WOw, that took some time to write and it's really apprecated!

You have been a pure pleasure to work with from the hair trials to the haircuts, to the day of your wedding. I loved your style, your curly hair, your entire look.

You were so happy, bubbly, and knew exactly what you wanted. This helps tremendeously. I plan on posting your images on my site and blog page but most of all I am thankful for all to see how to accomplish a look with a lot of pre planning and coordination.

Working with Leah was wonderful , as always, and it is helpful to do the trials with the makeup to get a great visual, very beneficial.

It's so important for bride's see these reviews so that they can understand each step so that day of the wedding all we need to do is recap with our photos and well written notes.

I wish you all the very best and please stay in touch for any future special event.

Warm regards, Giselle :)

I was really worried about my Aug 22 2010 wedding day hair, cos it's always hard to find people who know how to do Asian hair right. Then I saw Giselle's work on Washingtonian Bride and Groom magazine, and I gave her a call right away and scheduled an appointment.

She was so good at combining my ideas and her knowledge and experiences! On the wedding day, everybody, including me, my mom, grandma, aunt, and bridesmaids all love our hair! And our hair stayed in perfect condition for the whole day!

Having the hair last for hours is key, while of course, having the comfort last too. Looking like yourself, yet a step up from the everyday look, yet not looking totally like someone else (unless you choose to do this :)) is important.


Hair trials are a must. An initial trial just to get aqainted and know what to plan for is the first step. Then we set up a final trial a week or two before the wedding to get a visual on your style as if it were the day of.


Pre-planning is everything!

I wish you all the best and hope to see you again for any other special event in the future, as I do other types of specialty hair too (runway shows, print material, any occassion)!

Sincerely,

Giselle

I loved Giselle's work for my hair on the wedding day.
She met with me twice for hair trials, and we had fun working on a few different varieties of hair styles before deciding on the 'do' for the big day. She took several photographs and notes so that we would remember what we had decided on at the final hair trial, and having those with her on the day of the wedding made it easy to recreate the look she had in mind.
Giselle is incredibly talented- all of the bridesmaids got their hair done by her that day, along with two grandmothers of the bride and groom, and all of them were pleased with their hairstyles.
My hairstyle came out beautifully- it held up all night despite my dancing around, and even though there were many bobby pins to keep it in place, I did not feel a thing on my head all night. I cannot wait to see more pictures of it as they come in, but all I have seen show what an artist she is.
Giselle is extremely professional, talented, and a relaxing presence in the room as you get ready for the wedding- I highly reccomend her!

I really appreciate your kind words!
I cannot wait to see your photos....

Your bridal party was so much fun, the girls were so sweet and just so beautiful too!
It has been a pleasure working with you through the trials and know it was so worth taking the time for the specifics with the details on the hair.

You all were so timely too which really helped the timeline to run smoothly. Thank you for that!

Please stay in touch, all my very best-----Giselle

I was referred to Giselle by many of my other vendors and signed a contract with her prior to the trial. I was a little nervous but once I met Giselle I knew I didn't have anything to worry about. Giselle did a wonderful and amazing job on my wedding day! I wore a sari and she was able to work with my traditional veil and headpiece (tika) so easily. She did my hair and six others including bridesmaids, moms and other family members. She kept us all on schedule and was so professional throughout the day. I was amazed at how fast she was able to get each style done and how great they looked. I now need a reason to get my hair done by her again. Maybe she'll travel to Ottawa for my brother's wedding in the fall :o)

You were such a pleasure to work with!
I really enjoyed meeting all of your family and friends, they were so layed back and sweet.
Yes, having a great timeline is crucial and we managed to stick to the timing perfectly. Thanks to having all the girls review my site for hair ideas in advance and arriving with hair washed and dried from the night before (only doing so if the hair tends to get oily day of, instructions on my site).

I can't wait to see your photos from the amazing Greg Gibson!

All my very best and would love to accommodate any family member of yours, any time (just call as soon as possible since I get booked so far in advance, but no fear, it all depends on the total for hair, location and time to be done by which will determine my availability. My contact form is on my site found under the 'contact' tab)!

I have really long hair and I knew that I wouldn't be able to do it myself for my wedding. In addition to the challenge of working with the length, I also faced another difficulty when it came to my wedding hair - - I wanted to wear my hair at least partially down and my wedding was black tie - so I needed a style that looked very complicated, formal, and that wouldn't move at all or fall out of place during the night.

I spoke with my regular stylist at the time about doing my hair for my wedding, and he told me that he was available that day, but that he would need a minimum of 3 hours to give me the style that I wanted. I couldnt imagine spending all of that time on my wedding day getting my hair done, so after speaking with him, I began to look for other options. The wedding planner at the hotel where our wedding was being held recommended Giselle and told me that Giselle was fabulous. I have to say that the wedding planner sold Giselle short - Giselle is BEYOND fabulous!! She did an absolutely amazing job with my hair and I could not have been happier!!

I had my trial with Giselle a few months before my wedding and I knew very quickly that I would book her for the big day. Giselle really listened to what I wanted, and was able to create exactly what I wanted -- halfway up and formal, with a complicated style that looked like it took hours to put together. Not only did I love the style, but I also loved how fast she was! Giselle did my hair during the trial in under an hour, and on my wedding day, she AGAIN did my hair in under an hour. It was amazing. Going from a three hour estimate from my previous hairstylist to Giselle creating a beautiful, complicated-looking style in under an hour was wonderful. Giselle's speed made such a huge difference to me given the stresses of keeping to a schedule on the Big Day. The style itself also held all day and night, despite the fact that it was very, very windy that day and we took a number of photos outside.

Hair by Giselle responded with the following comments:

Laura,

Working with you was so much fun!

I love working with long hair and had a great time with creating this style which was soft and romantic. This style was meant to hold for hours even though it was half up with curls, it really is crucial to know how to prep the hair before getting started as well.
Having height at the crown is so important because you want to keep that lift for hours not to mention a strong base for the veil....these are all tricks of the trade.

The trials really do knock out so many details before the big day !

Speed is one of my top priorities, yet the style has to be just as effective, acurate, detailed and balanced.....it's not to be compromised.

I like to have a great timeline to work with so that everyone knows when to go for hair and makeup, we all need to be on the same page.

Thank you for such a wonderful review.....you all were amazing!

All my very best----Giselle :)

(from the Mother of the Bride) Giselle is a must-have for any wedding or special event. She has a gift of creating the hair style and look anyone wants and dreams of for their special day. You won't believe your hair could ever look that great! But she has much more to offer that can't be captured easily by words or photos. Giselle has a kind and sweet spirit that you just want to be around! She is such a calming presence in the midst of nervous preparation! She will do exactly what you ask her to, create a look so beautiful you want her to move in with you, and all the time be such a warm, friendly person you want to invite her to be at your wedding (we did!)
Giselle went over and above every expectation we had and took a beautiful bride and made her gorgeous and gave her the hairstyle of her dreams! She survived...rather...overcame the blizzard of 2009 and never once considered letting her bride down, fulfilling every word of her contract.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Giselle and the way she transformed our bridal party and overcame every obstacle to honor her promise. Her awesome skill is matched by her charm and you want her to complete your team for any special day.

It was very important to me to find the best hairdresser for my wedding and I did. During the last month prior to my wedding I found Giselle. I called her and met with her immediately. Giselle is very flexible and professional. She responded to every question, email or phonecall that I made. She asked me to bring in pictures and my vision for what I wanted to my hair to be like. I brought her a photo of my wedding gown and my headpiece. She tried a couple of different hair styles and took pictures. Giselle is very creative and puts 100% of herself in the hair that she is designing. I felt from her that the trial day hair was as important to her as my wedding day hair. She is fantastic! She put together a wonderful idea for my wedding day and it worked with my hair. It was amazing! The best of all, it wasn't a typical updo but the hair was something that accented my dress and me.

On my wedding day, she came to the hotel room and worked on all of the girls, including my aunt and my mom. She was able to do 6 girls, my aunt, my mom and me in under 4 hours. All of their hair was fabulous and they all looked terrific. Best of all, no one complained and their hair as well as mine stayed put all day/night long. She is the best! I highly recommend her!

Not only is she the best hairdresser, she has a pleasant and sweet personality. She put a lot of care in everyone's hair and really listened to what everyone wanted.

Thank you for you kind and detailed review!!!

I really do care about what I do and want to make sure everyone is happy. It's important to listen to the details and work with each person's individual facial features and desires.

I usually time each person at 20-30 mins and the bride at 40 mins, then add in cushion time for everyone on top of that as well, it works great every time!

I love doing the hair for the entire bridal parties, it's fun and creates great memories for the day of, after all thats part of the journey!

I am so happy you were happy and hope to stay in touch !!!

I just got married on October 3rd. I was given Giselle's name by my photographers - Allen and Marge from Creation Waits. After seeing her prices (about 400 once you're done with trial and paying for the wedding updo), I decided against using her. I did two hair trials with other people and hated them. I decided to go to a trial with Giselle. Within 10 minutes, my hair was up in the most elegant updo and I knew exactly why she cost so much! It was gorgeous and she is so talented it didnt take any time at all. On my wedding day, she came to my house and did my hair, my two maids of honor's hair, and one of my bridesmaid's hair. Four updos and touchups only took her 2 hours and 15 minutes. My friends described an updo to Giselle and she perfected it in minutes. We took pictures in DC before the wedding ceremony and our hair lasted all night. My hair lasted through the placement and removal of veil, through wind, and through dancing all night. My husband loved the hair. My hair is long, but it is thin and Giselle used a hair filler and wrapped all my natural hair around it so I had a full and beautiful chignon. You couldn't see the hair filler at all and it made my hair look the best its ever looked in an updo. My mom, who was in charge of our wedding budget, said to me that Giselle was worth every penny we spent and was the best decision we made. Giselle is not only talented, she's also professional, responsive, and very sweet. She did my friend's hair too at a wedding in July and it looked beautiful and lasted all night.

Giselle is the real deal. She is totally professional, extremely experienced, and a complete perfectionist - just what you want on the day of your wedding.

She styled my hair and my four bridesmaids' hair, and we discovered to our joy that she really can pull any style off - from romantic loose waves to elegant, classic Audrey Hepburn updos. Every girl looked absolutely beautiful.

My hair was shoulder-length but she still managed to execute a flawless, soft romantic updo which stayed put all night. Her eye for the ideal placement of hair accessories such as hair flowers was perfect, and made a real difference in my photos.

She was extremely responsive throughout my booking, and I would recommend her 100 per cent. You will not have to worry about a single thing if Giselle is doing your hair.

My daughter was married on 8/29/09. I am a wedding planner and suggested different vendors to Stacie based upon my experience of being in the business for over 30 years. Well, all we can say about Giselle is that she is the "best" in the business. Stacie had a hair trial with Giselle before the wedding which was the best thing in the world to do--Giselle was so patient, sweet and even took photos of the hairstyle so she would know exactly what to do on the wedding day. Stacie did not know what she wanted and Giselle tried various styles until Stacie was thrilled. She even suggested to Stacie to buy an extra pair of earrings and made hairclips to match. She did my hair, the groom's mother hair and also the girls in the wedding party. Everyone was thrilled beyond belief! If you want to hire the best hairstylist and also feel relaxed and confident that your hairstyle will be perfect, then you need to look no farther than Elegant Hair by Gisellle. After working with her, we look at Giselle not only as a fabulous professional in the business but also as a friend. Giselle---you are the best!!!!!!!!

I am very picky and went to Giselle for a trial with a pretty good idea of what I wanted done. She nailed it the first time and I practically hired her on the spot. This was one of the only vendors where I did not shop around because I felt really confident in her abilities. Completely worth the money!

Dear Rachel!

Thank you for posting your picture and writing such a sweet review!

I could not wait to work with you and your amazing style, very red carpet!

It worked beautifully with your dress, you had a vision and we worked it out together with those extensions and the few hair fillers for shaping and support.

You looked beautiful and I really hope to see you again in the future for any special event!

I am so glad you preplanned they way you did, wish every bride would realize that the hair is so important and needs to be secured well in advance since I do book up 1-2 yearls in advance !

Can't wait to look at your pics...Giselle :)

I have to say that Giselle was by far the best discovery that I had from all my vendors. I had tried 2 hair stylists before and wasn't satisfied with any of their services. I have long, curly hair, and wanted a Greek-Roman- romantic style, with most of my hair down. Most stylists that I found work with updos, so I had a hard and long time looking for "The One". I absolutely loved the way she styled my hair. She also did my Mom's hair (an updo), my friend's hair (another updo but more modern), and Styled my sister-in-law's, as well as my husband's mother and aunt. She was pretty fast but very detailed at the same time. She knows how to work your hair, and it's worth every penny you pay. She's also very creative, and works with your features, and will not impose, if you don't feel comfortable. That's a big plus.

Hello Melanie !

It was a pleasure working with your family, they were so warm and hospitable and I loved working with your beautiful hair!

I really do love working with different cultures because I get to see alot of different hair textures and the traditions (I have worked with Indian, Persian, Korean and Asian, Ethnic, Moroccan, and now Greek-Roman hair!)

Curls are not easy to work with sometimes and there are alot of factors to consider (weight of the hair and length) in relation to what style you want. I think your pictures show a great balance of this with your facial features.

We worked great together and thats what it's all about!

I hope to see you real soon, thank you!!!

We brought Giselle on-site to do hair for the mothers and bridesmaids, and she did a great job. She is talented, for starters. She also has a lovely personality and bent over backwards to make sure everyone was as happy as could be with their hair. Everyone looked great. Giselle was also terrific about touching base during the weeks leading up to the wedding, and making sure that we were on the same page with the schedule for the day. She was so flexible and happy to accommodate us, she really was terrific. Thanks, Giselle!

Wow what can I say but Giselle did a fantastic job for my wedding day! The maid of honor and I both had our hair done at our hotel room with lots of friends and family coming and going, making up being done, photos taken and general joy but Giselle worked great under pressure helping keep the calm joyous feeling going.

I have long very thick very curly hair that I trust to almost no one and Giselle took my hair right in stride spending much extra time to make sure my hair looked fantastic and stayed that way all night. Let me tell you even after wind, a couple hours of dancing and many hugs my hair still looked great. I am very impressed! As soon as I have my photos back I will gladly post some.

If you have hard to handle curly hair I would highly recommend Giselle.

I got so many compliments on the night of my wedding. She also did my bridesmaids, my mother, and mother in law. The all looked terrific. Giselle is very professional and easy to work with.

Giselle did my, my bridesmaids' and my Mom's hair for my wedding and she made us all look beautiful! I can't rave enough about Giselle --- when I did my trial run a few months before the wedding she did my hair exactly like I wanted from me just describing it to her (I had a half-updo). My bridesmaids didn't meet her until the day of the wedding but she was able to do their hair on-the-spot and did an excellent job (one of them wore her hair down and Giselle did soft waves and it held/looked beautiful all night long). She is also extremely professional, but so sweet and easy to work with (and very patient when experimenting with different styles and difficult personalities!). Her main focus/number one priority is making sure the bride is happy and she is extremely flexible -- she traveled an hour to my event and stayed through pictures, etc., for touch-ups. She is definitely worth every penny -- for style and the peace of mind that you know your hair is going to look phenomenal all night long!!

I absolutely love Giselle and will highly recommend her to everyone I know! I feel so lucky that I was able to book her. My trial was so much fun and the first time that I truly felt like a bride :). After she finished my hair I looked into the mirror and said "take me too the church I am ready to get married!" I felt so beautiful!! The wedding day was just as wonderful and smooth as I anticipated. She listened carefully to all of my bridesmaids and did a fabulous job with all of them (even those that were nervous because they had short hair). She took her time and really did an amazing job with my hair on the wedding day! I was extremely excited that she sells and uses fake hairpieces that can go under your up do to help fill it out. My hair is long, but thin. So this really made a big difference for me! On the wedding day I got sooo many compliments on my hair! And I still do!! She is so talented! Thank you so much for everything Giselle! I really look forward to working with you in the future!!!!

You will not be disappointed in your hair -- I had several people tell me that my hairstyle was the most beautiful that they had ever seen at a wedding. Even a few guys said the same thing! My only suggestion is to book her early b/c she is in high demand! I couldnt have been any happier with the updo -- it lasted from 7am - 12pm. She did an amazing job!

I had two ceremonies and Giselle did my hair for both. She also did my mother's and bridesmaids. Everyone was so happy with what she did with their hair. I really didnt have any ideas for either wedding but she chose perfect styles for both ceremonies. She was very organized and responsive which was great for me because I was planning the weddings from Miami and didnt have too much time to talk on the phone. For the first wedding (outside in backyard) she did a very romantic style where my hair was half up and half down. The second was a chinese wedding and she did an updo that was very classic and perfect! I would recommend her services to all brides!

Hi Amy :)

I really enjoyed working with you, in particarlly due to you having 2 wedding ceremonies, they were so differnet from each other.

Having your hair down for the romantic look along with your lace dress was stunning and so soft. The formal ceremony hairstyle was classic and needed to be styled according to your dress, especially since it had the traditional high collar.

You looked like a porcelain doll :)

The bridesmaids & mom were so sweet too and hope you'll be back in touch for another special event.

All my best to you!

Gisele was such a pleasure to work with and made my appointment one of the most stress-free aspects of my wedding. In my hair trial, she walked me though the process every step of the way. She was very open to suggestions on my part. One thing that made Gisele stand out to me was she took as much time as I needed in order for me to be sure that my hair looked perfect for my wedding. I loved my experience so much with her for my hair trial, that I booked her for my rehersal dinner and my wedding, where she created completely different looks and instructed me exactly what I needed to do to keep my hair looking its best.

Gisele also did beautiful and different styles for my bridesmaids. Not only is she skilled, but she is very quick. Each bridesmaid took no longer than a half hour, which was great since we were on a tight schedule to do pre-wedding photos.

I love you Gisele, you are an amazing hair dresser! You will definitely be hearing from me for my next big event!

Hi Carine

You are SO sweet and I loved being there for you and your bridal party!

You were so appreciative, that meant so much!

I think we worked well on achieveing your look together, that was a lot of fun! I like pulling together your hair piece idea with the broach, feathers and the cage veil netting that we converted to accent the hair piece.

Yes, timing IS so important and I always make sure I build in extra cushion time as well! It's works great since everyone needs to stay on a good schedule

I wish I could have been at your side all evening, you were and are stunning!

I look forward to the next time we get together!!!

Staying calm and polite yet knowing how to stay on a good schedule with the timing and technique is the best way to balance the agenda for hair.

She is fast, she knows exactly what I want from a few pictures I showed her. She tailored my hair to my face shape and dress to make it work for me. She is worth every cent. With dark hair, it's difficult to see texture. But Giselle did an amazing job creating texture, I still get compliments on my hair 2 months after the wedding.

Also knowing that your hair lasted and that the texture showed up so well was my main concern. These are important details and wanted to make sure I accomplished that.

I was SO LUCKY to have Giselle do my hair on my wedding day.
We started with a trial a few months before my wedding and I showed her pictures of my dress. She caught on to the "look" I was going for right away and designed a hairdo that would flatter my face and match the overall "look" of my wedding perfectly. She worked really quickly and efficiently the day of, and was super calm. She was really pleasant to have around. She even helped me get into my dress! In addition, Giselle did a gorgeous job on my bridesmaid and mom. I should add that she makes beautiful hair accessories and you can get one from her that will complement your look and and hairdo perfectly.

My hair was everything I wanted it to be . It stayed put all night.

I could say that my hair was perfect the day of my wedding, and it was. It was a perfect complement to my dress, to my prized Debra Moreland for Paris crystal vine and cowbell earings, but best of all it was the realization of what I envisioned and more.

Many brides will probably say the same, but I believe that in selecting Giselle to do my hair I got a great deal more. First, her experience was evident in the sage advice she provided me regarding veils and head pieces. That saved me time and gave me confidence. Her knowledge was evident in the amazing speed that she assembled the various styles I tried during my trial and how quickly she was able to transform 5 women and one flower girl the day of the wedding. All but myself hadn't selected how they would put their hair up.

She also came to my home and her efficiency and sweet cheerfulness added to the calm and joy of the day. The piece de resistance though was from the moment the final bobby pin went in until we waved good-bye to all our quests, my hair was perfect and comfortable. They say pictures don't lie. Both our video and the 800+ photos attest to Giselle's skill.

Giselle became the warm friend that helped me prepare for my memorable day and she will be the person I call in the future to create the next stunning look for the black tie events. Any bride that is lucky enough to get on her calendar never needs to give her hair a second thought. She will be in the most capable hands.

Jackie!

What can I say?

Reading your comments brought tears to my eyes!

Having you appreciate the work I do and heart felt warmth when I embrace each and every request or need, means everything!!!!

I take pride in making everyone happy, and that does mean having the bobby pins comfortable, to understanding exactly the style, to complimenting the hair to your facial features. I do bring my book of photos regularly incase of someone needing some extra help with their style.
I really do care about each step of the way.

You and your bridal party were so sweet and easy to work with. Your mom shared the story of how you all met (she was so proud), and I enjoyed getting to know you in that short time we had.

I will miss you but hope we'll get the chance to see each other again real soon.

Take good care, X Giselle

Another vendor I will be using again in the future. Giselle is a sweetheart and is fantastic at what she does. I, by mistake, told the photographer the wrong time to arrive for the pre-ceremony pictures. So she did half my hair so he could get some hair shots. She just rolled with the punches. It took her no time at all to get me ready and my hair stayed perfect the entire night, incredible with the amount of dancing I was doing. I would highly highly recommend!

I was really worried about my hair style for my wedding. I have seen a lot of hair styles on girls that look very sloppy and I didn't want that on my wedding day. I met Giselle at a bridal show. She did my hair in 15 minutes and it looked beautiful. I have had my hair done before at a salon and it took over an hour and didn't look nearly as good as her work in 15 minutes. I booked her right away. She worked with my schedule and met with me a bunch of times to make sure I had the style I wanted. My hair on my wedding day looked amazing and it held all night. I highly recommend her for any occasion.

Giselle was amazing! She was professional but also fun. At my trial we tried two very different styles and I fell in love with the perfect look. She even had the most beautiful hair accessories (that she makes!) that are sure to be perfect no matter what look you are going for. On my wedding day Giselle managed to do hair for my mother, bridesmaids and myself all before 12:00. She was so flexible and able to work with my girls' different styles. Everyone looked wonderful. Thank you so much!

Giselle was a pleasure to work with from the first moment we spoke on the telephone. I had my wedding in December 2007. Giselle came to the hotel I was staying at to do my hair and 8 other members of my family and bridal party. Giselle was fully prepared and had amazing stamina throughout the day. Giselle took into consideration all of our desires and turned our hair into beautiful creations. I was very nervous to have anyone do my hair. I always do my own hair but I wanted an extra special touch for my wedding day. I had my hair done mostly down and Giselle added beautiful Swarovski crystals that she provided me for purchase. I was thrilled with my look and my husband thought I was the most beautiful he has ever seen.

I highly recommend Giselle. She is very talented and personable. She delivers what you want and won't stop until you are happy.

You are right!
I won't give up till you are completely happy and I talk my way through everything, step by step.
It's so important to work together so there are no suprises at the end. I find most people prefer and enjoy this too.
As far as the size of your bridal party, I am very familiar with a well timed schedule per person with factoring in cushion time too.
This is a must.
I can work with the minimum of 3 people up to 15 people in a single bridal party, it just all depends on who wants what and how much time you will allow for the hair services. I then go back to touch up everyone at the end so even the first person feels just as fresh.

I make my own hair accessories from fresh water pearls & swarovski crystals/sterling silver wiring. I find that many brides prefer these and my prices are very reasonable. I show them at the trials along with the hairstyle to get a good feel for how they would look right then and there.

Let's be in touch....all my best-Giselle

I can honestly say that choosing Giselle was one of the most worthwhile decisions I made for my wedding. People under estimate the importance of hair and makeup as it is not only how you look but they are with you during one of the more stressful times as you get ready for the wedding. Giselle was fully worth the cost. I was very concerned about how my hair would turn out and until my wedding had never been able to find someone that could do it to my liking. Giselle was reliable, easy going, sweet, relaxed and really listened to what people wanted. My bridesmaids were also very happy with how their hair turned out. I would hire her in a second.

Hello Stephanie,

I agree :)
Hair for your wedding is just as important as the dress in my opinion. You want to be able to have a style that flows and coordinates with your dress, jewlery, headpiece and viel.
The hair needs to shape your face well, everyone looks at the hair :)
I am so happy that you were pleased and am glad I could be of service to you on your special day!!

Giselle is the BEST hair stylist that I have ever seen. She did seven girls, including myself, in just under three hours. Everyone loved their hair. I have always hated wearing my hair up, but my husband requested that I wear it up for the wedding. At the trial, it took her about ten minutes to get my hair into place and I feel in love with the style. She is so nice and flexible. You will not have to worry for one second whether your hair will look good on your wedding day!

Giselle was awesome! I went to her house for a trial run and I was very impressed with her ideas. I liked how my hair turned out because it was elegant but it still looked like me. She really worked with my curls to make it all come together.

The day of the wedding she came to the hotel to get everyone ready. It was really worth the extra money to have her come to the hotel room. It put us all at ease and we could relax for the morning. I had a noon ceremony.

I hired her only a few weeks before my wedding after I wasn't satisfied with my trial with someone else, and she was able to step in and take care of me with no problem.

I would definitely recommend Giselle for your wedding day hair. I had her come to the hotel where my bridesmaids and I were getting ready and considering the rain that morning and DC traffic was very glad that I did. She really did an amazing job; my hair stayed put all night until I took it out at 2 a.m.! She recommends doing two trials on her website, but I only did one and think that was plenty (although a second would've been a nice luxury). She was very efficient on the day, so we didn't have to worry about getting behind schedule or anything like that. Definitely more than I wanted to spend, but absolutely worth it.

Thanks so much for your review!

On location services are beneficial when weather can be unpredictable, am so glad your style help up till 2am!

As far as the trials, it's totally up to the individual. Sometimes one trial is plenty but if your wedding is planned well in advance a second trial is important to recap on the initial trial with your headpiece, veil, accessories, etc. Sometimes the hair has grown out, or the color may have changed which plays a big part in a final visual.

Thank you so much, it was a pleasure and, I hope to see your pictures when thier ready!

All my best----Giselle :)

You were such a pleasure to work with and am so happy you felt comfortable. Listening is the key to achieving any great style. We need to communicate through photos and getting a good visual at the trial. Your tyle was beautiful on you !

Also, your bridal party were so supportive and sweet, which is always calming.

I was lucky to see you a few times which made getting to know what you wanted that much easier. Your style was amazing and can't wait to get a link to your photos.

Please come back to see me any time for your next special event hair, it will be my pleasure.

I was so thrilled with my wedding day updo. It was elegant, natural, and completely secure. I only had to touch up once with hair spray during the reception after I removed my veil. Otherwise, my hair was flawless. Giselle was great to work with and a pro through and through. I had done a trial run with another stylist before finding Giselle. She cost more, but the choice was simple. She's the best at what she does and that's exactly what you get.

Giselle is a fabulous hairdresser, she has the ability to do very elaborate styles on multiple people with different hair types in a short time frame. I really appreciated her ability to stay on schedule on the wedding day so that nobody was late. The only reason I didn't give her a perfect score is that it is a little difficult to pay her. She doesn't accept out of state checks and credit cards so it can get a bit difficult to work payment. However, don't let this deter you, she is fabulous! Just know you need to figure out your payment situation in advance.

Thanks Anna for your review!

It was great working with you and your bridal party, they were a lot of fun !

I agree with you on the payment arrangements, I have learned that certain methods work best for me.

I have found that often I would get checks from out of town bridesmaids which would not always clear then I would have to wait till the bride returns from her honeymoon, meaning that it would take a few weeks thereafter to follow up!

Nonetheless, if someone is in a pinch I can be very flexible!

So I can't wait to see you pictures, hope to stay in touch...all my best--Giselle :)

Giselle, thank you for everything!
You were so flexible with me and I really appreciated it. I decided to change my hairstyle the day of and she was so nice about it. I can't wait to show you the pictures!!!
It was crazy windy out by the water (when we took our pictures), but my hair took it pretty well.
One of my bridesmaid told me that she wouldn't be getting her hair done, then decided to put oil in her hair the day of. Of course, she ended up having problems styling her hair. Giselle was so nice and helped her, even though we were going past our scheduled time. She is truly a professional!!!
I can't wait until we have another special occasion. I am definitely going to call you!!!

Hi Michelle!
Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on your hair...you all were a pleasure. From the begining, so hospital, from offering me slippers to be comfortable while I worked, to just having happy and cheery bridesmaids.
I appreciate your patience while we changed your style day of, sometimes brides do wish to do this and that's ok.
I would love to work with you again! I can't wait to see your photos---Giselle :)

Giselle is really an exceptional woman. She was originally booked on my wedding day, but thank goodness it was cancelled and had an opening for me. She did an awesome job with my hair and all of my bridesmaids hair. They all looked gorgeous. I wanted a half updo to create an elegant look and Giselle went above and beyond my expectations. Stop wasting your time and book Giselle! She even stayed after completing everyone's hair to help me put on my dress and veil. Personally, it is always inspiring to see someone who truly loves what they do and I admire Giselle for that. Feel free to email me for pictures!

Hair by Giselle responded with the following comments:

I appreciate your feedback and it is my goal to communicate as much as possible during the trial runs as what works best with your facial features, dress style along with balancing your look with your headpiece & viel. Getting a visual on different options is the best way to rule out what works. I am so pleased that all went well and would love to be of service to you again.
Also, I have hired a company who assists me with my calls & scheduling so you will never have to talk to a machine (unless it's after my business hours of 9-5, m-f) and I freely give out my cell so that you can reach me at anytime. Emails work great too. I feel confident that this will ensure a proper response everytime!

My goal is to make every client happy with all aspects of my services; from the artistry to the administrative, combined with all the logistics.

Take good care-Giselle

Giselle was wonderful and worked beautifully with my hair and the hair of the rest of my bridal party. She was very flexible, calm and thorough and made little tweaks for special requests. While it's not inexpensive, I think for the quality and level of service/engagement throughout the process it was more than worth it.

I found Giselle after a somewhat long search for a hair stylist. She was already booked for our wedding day and since I had 13 women needing hair, initially I was afraid she wouldn't be able to do it. BUT I was able to secure a 2nd stylist for most of the others and Giselle did my (bride) hair, my mom, and my 2 MOHs. She was amazing! I had 2 trials with her and brought some pictures and she instantly knew what to do! She knew what looked good with my face and my dress and veil and made sure everything was perfect! And when I suggested some small changes, she easily incorporated them and wasn't offended or pushy at all! She did exactly what I wanted and it came out beautiful! She ordered me gorgeous extensions that I got to use on the last trial before the big day. It was great to have that peace of mind and to know exactly what would happen on the day. On the day, she was early and READY TO GO! It was rainy day, so it was humid and things did not stay as well as I would have liked (wisps, etc.), but she did her best and gave me extra hairspray (although I didn't have time to use it). She was also good with my mom and sisters who really didn't know what they wanted and also brought extensions to use. She easily incorporated them, they were happy (miracle!) and everything went off without a hitch. Since she had to run to another wedding, she even came back for touchups for my mom and sisters before they got on the bus! Giselle is talented artist and while not the cheapest stylist you will find, she was flexible and she is WORTH IT for the security of knowing you will look GREAT!

Giselle was wonderful. She was expensive compared to the other hair stylists I researched so I was hesitant to use her at first but after my trial with her I decided I really wanted to hire her. She was quick and efficient and did a great job. The day of my wedding she arrived early, did my hair as well as five bridesmaids and my mother in law and everybody looked great. We all had classic, elegant updo's. Two of my married bridesmaids told me they preferred their hair at my wedding over how they looked at their own weddings! I felt so beautiful and so did the rest of the wedding party. I think she's totally worth the money.

Hello Diane,

I am pleased that everyone in the bridal party loved their hair!
Especially the 2 people who felt they liked their look over the look they had at their own weddings, what a great compliment, thank you!

I know it took us a while to establish the initial trial run due to my rates but am so happy now to have met you and that I could be a part of your big day!

Initially, I could not hold the date without a deposit, so having exchanged calls several times meant having to wait till the time felt right for you.
Sometimes the brides need to go through the trial runs first, which is totally understandable!
Some brides have enough referrences and are willing to secure the date based on that to ensure they don't loose thier date and time. So it really is what works best for you :)

I have established my rates based on my training nationally & internationally and consider what I do a real nitch. I don't color, perm or do anything else other then updos/styles for weddings and special events, exclusively!
I offer hours around the clock in comparisson to salons who have set hours. This is a big convenience factor!

This is all I do for a living, so I am involved with the specialty hair constantly. The variations I offer also show my artistic flexibility, therefore combining these skills and service type sets me apart.

Please keep in touch and hope to see you again--Sincerely, Giselle

Hair by Giselle responded with the following comments:

Hello Debbie,

Thank you for your honest feedback :)

Due to August being the hottest month of the year, a hairstyle that is down with curls has only so much durability. I do use anti-humidity hair products but sometimes it really depends on the weight, length and thickness of your hair.

I always suggest to have the hair at least half up to avoid perspiration and the humidity in the air during the summer.

I aim to please each and every person and make suggestions as to what I think will work for your facial features and hair texture according to your dress style.

I take a lot of pride in making sure all details are met. I have an answering service to assist me m-5, 9-5 and also give out my cell. I follow up with emails and confirmations to ensure each question is answered in order to better serve my brides. I talk my way through each trial run, take pictures from all angles, and make specific notes.

So It was my pleasure being of service to you and wish you all the best-Giselle
