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!

Mary Belieu did my hair and makeup for my wedding at Trentadue in August. she is amazing! I live in Chicago so it made planning a little bit difficult, but she was always willing to work around my schedule. We first met when she did my hair and make-up for my engagement pics in August 2012 and I looked amazing! Then she did my wedding trial in May and also did one for my mom who was very nervous. It was so much fun and she got everything dead on the first try! The weekend of the wedding was amazing. She cam e to my hotel on Friday to cul my hair for the rehearsal, and then her and her team did myself, 8 bridesmaids, and 2moms on the day of the wedding. Every single person looked amazing and was very happy with their results. Most of all, I still can not believe how great she made me look and how she helped me relax. Thank you Mary for everything - you are the best!

I had the pleasure of working with Katie Donaghy from It's a Date at the Powder Room for both my hair and makeup trial run before my engagement photos as well as for my wedding day. Katie and her assistant worked extremely hard ensuring that myself and numerous other family members got their dream hair and makeup. Katie is such a fun person to talk with as she is working on you and really listens to what you are envisioning for your wedding day look. She looked at pictures of my wedding dress, ideas I had and also gave her most welcomed input and advice for what she thought would look best and most enhance the entire look and feel of the day. My hair and makeup were perfect; if only I could have Katie with me every day! :) I don't know how she did it but my hair and makeup stayed intact through the entire day, even after pictures outside in hot weather, dancing and of course some happy tears. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Katie and I am very appreciative and pleased with how she made me look.

I cannot recommend DeAnna and her girls enough. Had a beauty trial and immediately knew she was our girl. I even switched up what I wanted day of the ceremony (I'm sure they love it when you do that), and she was super flexible and totally nailed it. I had three bridesmaids and two moms who got their hair did and makeup and everyone looked stunning and everyone was genuinely stoked about how they looked (which, let's be honest, never happens). I was so nervous about getting the hair/makeup right and DeAnna blew it out of the park. My friends said I was the most beautiful bride they'd ever seen, and I have pretty friends :) I felt like a million bucks and I am still getting compliments to this day. Thank you DeAnna!!! I have to add my mom is a non-makeup/no hairdo kind of person. I insisted she get in the chair and let the girls do her up. She didn't want too much but they made her happy which was huge. My mom looked stunning and so did everyone DeAnna touched :)

DeeAnna of The Powder Room was nice enough to accommodate my small wedding even at the very last minute. She was very professional--showing up on time for our appointment at our hotel and making sure that we were happy with our looks. She did my hair and makeup and I couldn't be happier with the result. The look she did for me was exactly what I had envisioned. She made me look so
flawless during my wedding day! My mother and sister also loved their hair and makeup. I've had many experiences with other hair & makeup artists that promised to give me the exact look I asked for but never really delivering. DeeAnna came ready and delivered.

Katie Donaghy from It's a Date at the Powder Room is truly amazing! She blew me away at my hair and makeup trial with her ability to make my vision come to life quickly and beautifully. On the day of my wedding, she did hair for all three of my bridesmaids, hair and makeup for my mom, and hair and makeup for me. She was incredibly efficient, creative, and sweet, and my whole wedding party was thrilled with the way they looked. My hair and makeup was even more beautiful on the day of the wedding than at the trial, and she made the whole experience stress-free and fun. Katie is a true artist, and she was absolutely a pleasure to work with. I recommend her and the whole salon highly!

I had Jenifer do the hair and makeup for our wedding party. Her fee includes a trial run for the bride, but it's definitely more on the high end. I was not completely satisfied with my trial run, but come wedding day, she did my makeup beautifully!

She also did a great job on the bridesmaids and moms. I think she really knows what make up /hair compliments each age/skin-tone/dress color. She is also super-quick so you get some extra time to relax. I highly recommend getting Jenifer for your wedding hair and makeup if you are fine the prices reasonable for you!

Jennifer at It's a Date did a great job with my wedding hair and makeup. I wanted to choose someone that did both hair and makeup and could travel to my hotel in Napa, where I was getting married. This place seemed the most economical option, because even with the travel fee, she was cheaper than a separate hair and makeup person, according to my research.

We had an initial consultation and she listened to my needs and wants patiently. She was very accommodating with some schedule changes I had and showed up on time to my hotel, despite the rain. She also did my mom's hair and makeup and was great with her too. My hair and makeup turned out great! I especially loved what she did with my hair! She is definately a pro at what she does and was very pleasant and calm, which is exactly what you need hours before you get married!

Katie was AMAZING! After my preview we realized my updo was to loose with how I dance so when the wedding day came she took such amazing care to make sure each curl was clipped in so that after my hair was done I jumped around my hotel room like a pogo stick and everything stayed in place......then and 12 hours later! I don't wear makeup and everyone keeps saying how truly beautiful and glowing I was on my wedding day. Katie did such a great job of keeping me natural but highlighting my best features. I felt like a movie star! I have already referred Katie and It's a Date at the Powder Room to another friend who is getting married and I would recommend to anyone who is looking for someone wonderful to do their hair and/or makeup for any occasion!

She works quickly and does a great job. She arrived at our site the day of the wedding promptly and everyone who had hair and make up done was more than happy with their results.

Katie is the best!!! We had a great time at my trial appointment and she completely got the look I was going for. After looking at my trial pictures for a while I decided I wanted a hair style that was fuller and didn't even tell her until I sat down in the chair on my wedding day and it wasn't an issue, she rolled with it and made me look so beautiful! My makeup was so light and natural with that pop of glam I was looking for, it photographed amazingly well. Such a blast to work with, I would use Katie again for other special events! I highly recommend the girls from It's a Date at the Powder Room!

I worked with Jenni H. at the Powder Room for my wedding. She does great work and I have no complaints about the hair or make-up for myself or bridesmaids. My only complaint is o she was difficult to get a hold of. I would have to call and email her several times before getting a response. Part of this was due to email difficulties they were having, but it shouldn't take over 2 weeks to get back to a bride who is stressing about something. Her communication was much better as the date got closer and I would recommend her as long as you aren't a needy bride!

Overall - I loved the final style and look that I got for the wedding. But getting there was an uphill task.

My trial for hair & makeup was fun, but I can't say I liked any of the looks or the makeup. I was definitely impressed by the professionalism on the trial day, as my beautician (Dee Anna) didn't hesitate to try out up-do's, partly up partly down, etc. It took around 1.5hrs but we finally found the look I wanted.

Sadly on the day of the wedding it all seemed SUPER rushed. Within 35mins the hair was done and there was no separate mirror to view the back - I was asked to look in a tiny compact!! Plus, my family was late to the hotel so no one was there to help guide or keep the style in check. By the time they did arrive, my Mum was really upset with how untidy the hairdo looked. I loved it from the front but had no idea what a rats nest it looked like from the back. We decided to cover it up with my veil and leave it at that.

We were very disappointed that on the day itself my appointment was so rushed (because she had another wedding to go to which was farther away) and that I didn't feel like the hairdo was as good as the day of the trial. Still, I think this salon has some fantastic hairstylists - just make sure you have a spare mirror of your own if you have them come out to you & make sure you're happy before you let them leave!

I had Carrie from The Powder Room do my wedding hair and make-up and she was AMAZING! She listened to everything I wanted and gave me recommendations based on my skin-tone and hair-type. She is super friendly (not at all snobby like some some hair and make-up artists are) and made me feel very calm the morning of my wedding. She and her assistant budgeted their time well and got everyone done, making sure I (the bride) was her priority. I would highly recommend Carrie!

Jen was amazing!! I loved my trial had a few hair concerns, came back a month later and we worked them out. The day of she was efficient, quick, and kept us laughing the whole time! The pictures are amazing and all of our hairstyles stayed and so did our makeup, even after 5 hours of dancing and sweating!! (yuck!) But in all the pictures we still look so put together! I am so impressed and it looks so natural! I cant thank her enough!

My beautician was awesome! Her name is Carrie. She was so patient and helpful. At the preview she listened to all my requests and did a complete practice. Then, when I changed my mind on the wedding day she was able to create a beautiful hairdo. She came to my home to do all our hair/make-up and she came as early as I anxiously requested. She rocks!

Carrie did a great job on my hair and make-up. It was amazing, and she totally listend to what I wanted because I kind of changed things after the first trial! But it was no problem and she nailed it. Also I have thin hair that is hard to work with but she made it look great. All the bridesmaids were really happy too.

Deanna, of It's a date, was wonderful to work with. When we did the dry run, I made her do it twice because I couldn't decide what I wanted. She was really patient. I think I was a bit of an overly emotional bride that day, and it didn't faze her.
When it came to wedding day, she knew exactly what I wanted, and she made the perfect choices, which were really specific, without me having to remind her of anything. Everyone said I looked amazing - hair and makeup. My hair was especially pretty. When I tried to duplicate it the next day, it was impossible, and Deanna made it look so easy!
I felt beautiful. Not "made up." It felt very natural. And it stayed on all night. She was completely professional, from start to finish. And a sweetie, to boot!

The star ratings given in this review are for Jennifer Smallwood.

Jennifer did an amazing job with my hair and makeup and I recommend her highly. I had a hair and make-up preview, a second hair preview, my wedding day hair and make-up, and my hair for the rehearsal dinner and welcome dinner done by Jennifer. From the first preview I could tell that she is extremely professional. In a business dealing with bridezillas and mothers of the bride, Jennifer has the perfect temperament to deal with all types. Our photographer said that in his opinion Jennifer is the best in the business.

At the first preview Jennifer listened carefully to what I wanted, looked at photographs I brought, and asked follow up questions about what it was I liked about the pictures. She did my hair exactly as I asked, which was loose and up, but I decided that I didn't like that look. I went back for a second hair preview and asked her to do three different styles-smooth up, curly down, and curly half up. I was having a hard time making a decision so I asked Jennifer for her opinion. Jennifer is very professional and does not offer her opinion, or pass judgment unless specifically asked. She asked me questions about how I do my own hair when I want to dress up and other question to get an idea about how I envisioned my look for the wedding day. After getting this information she didn't offer her opinion right away, but instead thought about it. When she finally gave her opinion, it was well thought out and for that reason I placed high value on it. I decided to go with a smooth up-do for the wedding, and Jennifer had the great suggestion that I do the other hair styles I was interested in for the rehearsal dinner. I booked Jennifer to do a half-up do for the rehearsal dinner and a down-curly do for the welcome dinner. I told her for the welcome dinner that I wanted waves, not curls. To better understand exactly what I wanted she asked me what I thought the difference between waves and curls are. I was very impressed with her attention to detail and the extent to which she tried to please me.

The day of the wedding Jennifer was great. The hair was even better than from the preview and I asked her to make a modification to the make-up, which she did. She also did a great job with the hair of my mother, mother in law, and sister. Jennifer also worked very well with our photographer. She was set up in the bathroom, but at the photographer's request she moved into better lighting in the kitchen area so that he could take some getting ready shots. If I were to do the whole thing over again next summer (theoretically) I would without a doubt hire Jennifer.

I know most all of these ladies personally, so I know that they are committed to doing beautiful work. All of them can come and do your hair/makeup at your house - so there's no need to travel to the salon AND your house AND the site AND the church. You can stay comfortable at your own place (or wherever) - that was a huge plus for me.

Katie did my make-up and hair for my wedding. I have never looked so beautiful! I looked just the way I pictured I wanted to look. She really listened to what I wanted. She also did my maid of honor's make-up and hair. She is 15 years old and Katie gave her a look that was gorgeous, yet still age appropriate.

I highly recommend a practice session for your hair and makeup. My curls held too well (think Shirley Temple) and my makeup faded fast. On the day of my wedding I brought some of my own make up that I know works well and I insisted that she smooth out my hair more so it would not be too tight. Taking an active role will insure that you get what you want! Also, give yourself some slack on the timing. My girl was 15 minutes late which made us rushed when the photographer showed up.

Dear Busy Bride,
I'm so sorry to hear that your hair and makeup didn't turn out as you hoped! We try hard to listen and communicate well so that we can accomplish your desires.

This group of talented professional cosmetologists and hair stylists are amazing! I gave them very little notice, having forgotten(!) to reserve hair and makeup for a very popular wedding date, and they accomodated me with smiles and a friendly attitude. They were punctual, flexible (one of my bridesmaids changed her mind at the last minute and wanted her hair done, too), courteous, and relatively reasonably priced. For their services, EXTREMELY reasonably priced. Thank you for making my special day so much more perfect!

Deeanna Reese at It's A Date at the Powder Room was spectacular! I brought a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like for the wedding - and she got it flawlessly! It was one of the hottest days on record and she and Jennifer worked feverishly on five bridesmaids and me (hair and make-up). My girls were stunning and I received so many compliments on my own hair and make-up!

I was so happy with the ladies at "The Powder Room" They took such good care of me and my bridesmaids for my wedding. They really kept me distracted and I was able to relax and enjoy myself.
