Katie was great! I went in for my trial and didn't like it because I had originally told her sometime completely different then I had initially wanted (my fault) so I took the risk of waiting until my wedding day "play." And boy did Katie kill it!!! Katie and her assistant did 12 hair and 1 bridal hair + makeup in 3 hours!! Super quick! I would definitely recommend It's A Date :)

Katie D. and Mary D. provided Bridal Hair and Makeup for me and my 3 bridesmaids and my mom. They were prompt and professional and (most important!) completely saw my vision for the bridal party. I'm a short girl and very much value the art of the bouffant. I wanted to have a classic chignon to complement my simple veil but didn't want to miss out on having a bouffant. I had a trial run with Katie a few months before the wedding and she showed me that I didn't have to settle for one or the other. She was open to giving me multiple options and even had a veil that I could try on for effect. On the day of the wedding Katie worked her magic and gave me gorgeous wedding hair that went perfectly with my tea length wedding dress. Mary diligently worked with my bridesmaids to give them each a 50's inspired hairdo that made them feel confident and BEAUTIFUL. The makeup was classic and subtle and looked perfect for the entire evening. My mom, who shies away from makeup and fancy hair, looked absolutely gorgeous and had an air of confidence that could not be ignored. There is something to be said for a hair and makeup artist who can accentuate the already beautiful features of each individual lady and transform her into a vision of grace and confidence. Katie and Mary worked with absolute grace under pressure. They were so attentive and patient. I would absolutely hire them again. And recommend them to everyone I know who needs professional services for a special event.

Katie did my hair and make-up for my wedding, and she and her team also did my mom and all my bridesmaids.

They were AWESOME. I am not someone who normally wears makeup or does much of anything with my hair - so I wasn't terribly comfortable with the whole process. Katie was fantastic all the way through. She did two trials with me before the big day, and was super fun and helpful all the way through.

All my girls loved what she did - I can't recommend her highly enough. She's a total pro - and her low-stress, "everything is under control" demeanor is exactly what you want on the morning of the big day!

The full name is, "It's a Date at The Powder Room". Alisa Norstrom did my daughter's hair and make-up and mine as well. Totally worth every penny. For the preview, Alisa really listened to what Laine wanted and did a beautiful job. On the wedding day Alisa drove over to where we stayed in Bodega Bay and did our hair and make-up at the house. The make-up they do is specifically designed to look good for photography. Alisa arrived at 12:00 and we were both done by 2:15-2:30, in time to get dressed and ready for prewedding pictures at 3:00. If you have 4 or more people, they usually provide a second stylist. I have the type of hair that frizzes to two times normal volume, but Alisa had some sort of miracle product that completely calmed my hair down. Both my daughter and I could not have been more pleased with the results. We wanted to take Alisa home with us!!

I feel so fortunate that I was able to get my wedding hair and make-up done at the Powder Room! I was an out of town bride that had never before seen or met with any of these ladies – except for over the phone! I went solely off of reviews and a recommendation from my wedding planner – which is why I am writing a review – because I want to make sure I help all the other ladies that are in the same boat out!!

I opted for the “trial run” and “day of” package as a way to ease my mind about the look I would get on my wedding day! Truthfully, I did not need a trial run – because they were SOOOOOO awesome --- but I would still recommend it because I had my hair and makeup done for my rehearsal and welcome dinner too!! She even did a different style so that I did not have the “same” style for both events. Really it is just a great way for you both to get on the same page and for them to play with your hair and make sure that they understand exactly what it is that you want and need.

In addition, we had them come to our hotel and do hair and make-up for my whole wedding party! I know that the $30 “travel” fee may seem to add to all of the other things that you have already spent – but it is SOOOOOOO worth it! Seriously! I spent my wedding morning/afternoon in a robe sipping mimosas with all my bridesmaids – what a great way to start off such a fun and memorable night – and we didn’t have to worry about traffic or running late because we were already in the room where we were all going to get ready! In addition, they made all of my girls look stunningly gorgeous! Seriously – I wish that I could have them do my hair and make-up every day – it was such a fun and great experience! Make sure you book with them today!!!

Oh PS – I had Alisa – and she was beyond great! Thank you for making me gorgeous!

Mary was the stylist who did hair and make-up for my bridal party, and she was fabulous. I went for a hair and makeup trial prior to our engagement shoot, and though Mary did exactly what I had asked her to do, I was not entirely happy with the results. So we loosened the curls to make it a bit more casual for the engagement shoot, and I decided I would go home and give a little more thought to the look I wanted on the wedding day. When Mary and her assistant showed up on the day of the wedding, I explained that I wanted softer curls and more subtle makeup than I had during the trial, and Mary had no trouble making those adjustments. I was SO happy with the outcome; my hair and makeup still looked professionally done and very special, but I felt I looked much more like myself. I also really appreciated Mary’s flexibility on the day of the wedding. One of my bridesmaids did not initially want to have her makeup done professionally, but as she watched the other girls getting made up, she loved the results and asked whether they could add her to the schedule. They were able to make this adjustment easily, and we still wrapped up on time. We were all really happy with our hair and makeup, and it photographed beautifully!

Jennifer and Heather were a pleasure to work with for my May wedding! They had done the hair and make-up for my sister's wedding a few years back and were outstanding and easy to work with for my wedding as well. Heather did my hair and make-up and she really listened and worked through my trial to achieve exactly what I wanted. She also nailed it with adding in clip-in extensions that I brought on my wedding day that we hadn't used in the make-up trial. I'm glad we worked with Its a Date at the Powder Room.

My partner and I got married in Santa Rosa last weekend and had Corinne and Sheilah from The Powder Room do our hair and make up – they did such a wonderful job! They came to our respective hotel rooms on time, well prepared and stuck to the timeline that we gave them perfectly. Both my partner and I couldn’t have been happier with the job that they did – we both felt absolutely beautiful and we had no problems throughout a night filled with lots of hugging and kissing and dancing.
