I couldn't be happier with my decision to work with Giselle. She made my hair look EXACTLY like the photo I showed her at my trial. My updo was just beautiful, comfortable, and looked perfect all day and night - through outdoor photos, an intense dance party, and not one but two after parties!! She and her assistant Nina did hair for my (large) wedding party as well and every bridesmaid and flower girl was absolutely thrilled with her hair. Plus, they were just fun and sweet to have around all day - great people to hang out with during wedding prep! Giselle even came along for touch ups during photos and before the ceremony. She is an absolute pro and so great to work with - I would recommend her for any bride.

Oh that's so kind of you, thank you dearly for your review, it really means a lot ! You all were so much fun and we really enjoyed the day with everyone. I'm always happy to offer my touch ups around the clock for the entire party and am so glad the styles held up well!!! I think this service not only offers security in knowing that the hair will last but also comforting to know that everyone will be taken care of at all times, at any location through out the day. I cannot wait to see your picture, please do share when they're ready! Wishing you all my very best!!!!

Giselle was AMAZING! I booked Giselle for my wedding day for my hair as well as my bridesmaids, and she 100% exceeded expectations! I had bridesmaids who were mad that they had not booked her for their own weddings because they liked their hair better for my wedding than their own! She is truly gifted, and works quickly as well. One of my bridesmaids (who had not originally wanted her hair done) decided the day of that she wanted to have Giselle do her hair if she ended up having time, and Giselle was so ahead of schedule that she was able to fit her in. She's incredibly accommodating! I also used Giselle for the temporary clip-in extensions, which I got so many compliments on and they looked fantastic! I would recommend any bride book Hair by Giselle, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Giselle!

I'm so glad that I could accommodate you all! Last-minute tweaks and adjustments always do happen and you have to be prepared as much as possible. Flexibility is really important and you have to allow for buffer time for this very reason. It was such a pleasure working with you all and hope to stay in touch! ;-))

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Gigi-she truly is incredible!! She is so talented-my hair was perfect and didn't move all night. I felt so confident and thrilled with everything she did. Gigi is such a kind and calm person, exactly who you want to be with you on such an exciting but sometimes nerve wracking day! I can't believe how quickly she worked-doing my hair and 7 bridesmaids. Everyone loved her so much and I got so many compliments on my hair. There is no one better and I cannot thank her enough for making my wedding day so special. She truly is amazing!! I would recommend her to anyone-there is no one better.

Thank you kindly for such a lovely review, Charlie!!!
You were absolutely beautiful and elegant. Watching you and Spencer dancing and mingling with your guests was such a pleasure. Everything about your day was perfect.... I truly enjoyed working with you and your bridal party too, they were a lot of fun.
Your style was classic and timeless and it was wonderful to witness how long the styles held up through the rain and dancing for hours until the late hours of the evening.

I so appreciate you requesting my services for your wedding at The Cotswolds in England. It was a spectacular location and seeing you all wedd in the 1st century church was a great experience as well, that doesn't come around everyday.

Thank you again for trusting and believing in me, to have me come all that way, it was an honor. Destination weddings are always so adventurous and exciting!
Wishing you both lots of love and happiness and hope to see you again sometime in England.
All my very best!!! Xxx

Giselle flew to the Cotswolds in England to do my daughters hair and her 7 bridesmaids. I have never worked with anyone who is so reliable, dedicated and willing to go to any length to accommodate us Her talent is like nothing I have ever seen, she is inspirational, professional and her experience really showed. Unfortunately, the weather was wet, windy and extremely humid, every hairdressers nightmare. She effortlessly worked to make sure the hair looked fantastic and stayed that way. My daughters hair was still perfect at 3.00am even after a lot of dancing and time spent outside! I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is very artistic and will go to great lengths to work with the bride and give her the style she really wants. I cannot thank you enough Giselle, we could not have pulled off this fairytale wedding without you!

Thank you so so much Jo! It was an honor and absolute pleasure to travel to Charlies wedding in England, I loved every minute of it!!!

The wedding was so special. Charlie was stunning and I have to say she is one of the most gracious, appreciative brides I've ever styled hair for. So eloquent and classy through the whole process, from her final hair trial and hair for the day of the wedding. She knew what she wanted and I was more than happy to deliver and perfect her style which was a beautiful reflection of her personality and elegant dress, (cannot wait to see photos!).
I'm so pleased that everyone's hair held up well during the rain and dancing too, you all looked beautiful!!!

I'm grateful to you all trusting in my services and for all of your generous accommodations to make it over there. Destination weddings are a blessing and adventurous but no easy task and with that said......It was just perfect!

What a wedding to remember, thank you again. Wishing you all lots of love and hope to return to England again for any special event.

All my very best!!! Xx

We were lucky we were able to secure Giselle - all the wedding timelines that you read say that you should book your hair and your make up person 5 months before the wedding but here is one piece of advice: once you know the date of your wedding, go ahead and start looking and going for trials with the ones you think are right for you. Like that you stand a better chance of them having your date available. We were very fortunate to find out that Giselle was available for my daughter's wedding date, she had been referred to us by many different sources, and we emailed back and forth only because we were not sure we could afford her rate. For a Saturday wedding Giselle has a weekend rate that includes going to the hotel where you are getting ready, working with you and your bridesmaids and following you to the wedding venue to touch you up and take the veil off after the ceremony. If you don't think that is important, let me tell you that I came to realize it was such a good idea, I asked the make-up person to also come with us to the venue! Once my daughter had a hair trial with Giselle (two hair trials are included in her rate) we knew we had found the right person to do her hair (and mine!). During the hair trials she tries different styles until you are satisfied. For the second trial which happens the week before the wedding, she does the updo, places the veil, takes pictures and so on the day of the wedding, she knows what you like and what you don't like. And she is prepared for the changes that invariably brides (and the mothers of the brides) make at the last minute! You need a special talent to make everybody happy with their hairdo on a day when emotions and nerves could be running high! The result is absolutely worth it and the experience was wonderful.

Working with Giselle was one of the highlights of my wedding experience! From the very first trial she felt like family and I knew that she was going to be a key part in building the wedding of my dreams. I am extremely detail oriented, especially when it comes to my hair, and Giselle made me and my entire bridal party more beautiful than I ever imagined. I signed up for the full 10 hour package which I highly recommend to any bride for the peace of mind to know that you are fully taken care. That being said, my up-do was so perfect it literally DID NOT move an inch - even after a night full of dancing and then being slept on. Brides who work with Giselle will never be disappointed.

Giselle is an absolutely pleasure and her work is simply stunning! On my wedding day, she did updos for myself, my 10 bridesmaids, my mother and my mother in law. Each person commented on how beautiful they felt. This was really important to me as I've worn hairstyles for large events where I didn't feel my best. Instead, I felt stunning and I've never seen my best friends looking so radiant.

Giselle also really listened and understood some of my asks even when I'm sure I was less than clear. I have natural darker blond hair and it was important to me that the products she used wouldn't hide all of my natural shine and color. She listened and I couldn't have been more pleasured with the end result!

One of the luxuries of working with Giselle is that she stays with you the entire day. For my first look, Giselle created a beautiful blow-out that looked soft and natural. Then, before heading off to the wedding ceremony, she put my hair up - ensuring a more sophisticated and durable look to last in DC's heat. Lastly, after the ceremony, she touched up my hair before we joined our guests for the reception.

More than anything, I really appreciated Giselle's calm and collected attitude. There was a whirl of activity in our room between the bridesmaids, the mothers, the make-up, the food, etc... and Giselle always seemed happily focused on ensuring each girl felt special and looked wonderful. I'd highly recommend Giselle to any of my closest girlfriends.

Thank you, Giselle for helping me feel and look beautiful on David's and my special day!

Thank you SO much for sharing your hair experience!! It was wonderful working with you and your very sweet family and bridal party. I'm so happy you all were pleased and that everyone's hair held up well that day. Having the wonderful weekend package for touch ups (along with the many other perks) is really beneficial. Many positive reviews and great feedback about the weekend packages and am so happy to offer such a personalized service. There's nothing better than having a relaxing and well organized wedding day!... I really believe that hair sets the tone for the day since that's essentially the first step of the process.

Giselle is amazing! She is so friendly, easy to work with, and got me so excited about my wedding. Giselle is a true perfectionist, she took detailed notes at my trial and exceeded all expectations on my wedding day-my hair was flawless! She is so fast and detailed at the same time, she did my Mom and sisters hair too, and even had time for touch ups on everyone. She is also very flexible and wants to make sure you and your bridal party feel comfortable with the way they look - she literally re-did one of my sister's hair to make sure she felt amazing before walking out the door.

Giselle also helped me to find the perfect make up artist, Kim Giamarria (Bauty Mark, make up). When all hair & make up was done, I looked in the mirror for the first time, I have never felt so confident and more beautiful, the way every bride should feel on their wedding day. Together, with their years of experience, service and positivity, you cannot go wrong!

I'm so happy everyone was pleased... Flexibility is so so important. Understanding each individual's hair type and texture, facial features and style desired, is key. You have to know how to adapt, what products are best for each person and to be able to work on durability of the style. Congratulations and hope to be of service to you again in the future. It was a pleasure working with you all!!!
