Liv is fabulous. She is so talented and happy and kind – I knew I was in good hands for my wedding. I didn’t have much of a vision for how I wanted my hair to be on the actual wedding day, though Liv was able to ask the right questions to understand the general idea of what works for me, and with her vision we got to an awesome outcome. The trial was simple and helpful, and the actual wedding day was a joy. She was relaxed and lovely – quickly working with my family before putting me at ease while she did her magic. I recommend her to all – and hope that I get to work with her again!

Livia was SOOOO much fun to have around on the wedding day! My bridesmaids loved her, it was like having another one of the girls do our hair! She had such a great attitude and was so upbeat, even when I was starting to panic about the time.

I think my husband may have died a little inside when I told him how much my hair cost, but honestly, she is not that much more than most stylists in the Chicagoland area. We're talking like maybe $20 more (believe me, I made a chart). And she managed to take all my bridesmaids, all of whom have vastly different hair types, including my one good college friend with hair I can only describe as "poofy", and made them look GORGEOUS.

So just don't buy that extra pack of rhinestones and hire Livia. You will not regret it. You will want to make her your bridesmaid after your hair trial. She's that awesome.

There’s a reason why the reviews rave about Livia and her book-of-business fleshed out by word-of-mouth referrals – it’s because she’s amazing!! I walked into my trial appointment a bit misguided; I thought I wanted one look but turns out not all celebrity photos translate well across every face shape/hair type (I have a smaller face and a whole lotta hair). But that said Liv was incredibly patient and with her advice we came to a style I was absolutely thrilled about. She really is the sweetest and crazy talented. The day-of, she styled me + 7 bridesmaids – all who loved their various styles and very impressively all of which lasted the entire night of dancing!! But more than that, she was a joy to have around and incredibly easy to work with. In the hours leading up to your wedding ceremony or any big event you want to be surrounded by calm, but fun & warm people so please do yourself a favor and reach out to Livia.

Livia is a celebrity stylist among Chicago brides... if you haven't booked her, just book her. She is by far my number one favorite wedding vendor (that was tough for me to say, since I got quite lucky with most of my vendors)...

I first met Livia 2 yrs ago at my sister's wedding hair trial. That moment, I knew that she would be my wedding hair artist and 2 years later, she did my wedding hair! Book her fast - she books out a year in advance (maybe more) and is the absolute best hair stylist. At the trial, I showed her 4-5 pictures as samples... she glanced at each for a few seconds, but knew EVERYTHING about each style (what side the part is on, how the bangs are falling, how curly the hair is) and could recommend which combination would work best for me. I have very straight Asian hair that NEVER curls (and never stays curled)... my hair looked the same at 11 AM and 11 PM. It even looked good at 11 AM the next morning!

Not only do I love Livia for her skills, but she is SO fun to be around! She would have fit right in as a bridesmaid while we got ready for 4 hours and i wished she was coming to the wedding. I love Livia and if you don't book her for your wedding, I promise your hair is not going to be as pretty as it could be! Just do it - her prices are more than comparable across standard Chicago hairstylists and I guarantee you won't regret it.

Livia is a hair magician. No joke. I first met Livia when I was standing up in my best friend's wedding and she did hair for the bridal party at my friend's parents' house. Even though she was there since 8am, she was super friendly and energetic, diligently working away on whoever sat down on the chair in front of her while making fun conversation and having a few laughs. Luckily, I had already booked her for a few months later. :)

She showed up to the house ready to go and didn't mind that I had added on a few dos last minute (everyone wanted to jump in when they saw how great she made everyone look). I had every type of hair imaginable in my bridal party (thin, thick, curly, straight, long, short...) and she was able to give everyone a style that they felt comfortable in. We all left feeling like rock stars and continued to do so all through the day and night. If you have any doubts about hiring Livia, don't. She will make you, and everyone around you, look and feel amazing.

Livia did my and my bridesmaids/mom's hair for my muggy-summer-day wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. Despite the heat and humidity, my hair lasted all day and I loved the way it looked. Livia is so talented and creates super classy looks. She is also extremely great to work with - she is extremely professional and has a great, relaxed demeanor that really helps the mood on your morning-of. I don't think it would be going too far out on a limb to say that Livia is the best in the business. Book her, gals. You won't regret it.

Livia is probably one of the most gifted stylists in Chicago. I figured that much out by reading all the reviews from various brides when I was researching stylists that would come to the house. I can honestly say I have never felt so beautiful in my life. My family and bridal party had so many stories that they just did not enjoy their professional up-do's or styles whenever they had it done. I told everyone to trust me and just let Liv at them. She made us all look like little holiday Barbies with perfect hair. She was hands down the best I have seen and her warm, bubbly personality just makes the whole experience even better. I knew at the trial back a few months ago, that I can really relax completely about how my hair would turn out. That was a huge relief because who would want to think about that on their wedding day? She gets booked to the gills in the wedding season, so if you are interested definitely contact her soon. I am so happy with the decision to book her. My family and friends still talk about how "we'll all never look that good in our life". ha!

Liv is so talented and such a joy to work with! A friend of mine had gotten her hair done by Liv for her wedding and I remember thinking how gorgeous and natural it looked. After having a disastrous trial with Beauty on Call, I scheduled a trial with Liv and I loved the results! I also felt really comfortable with her- she's super friendly and relaxed- and she somehow knew exactly what style I was going for within 5 minutes of meeting me. She styled mine and my entire bridal parties hair the day of the wedding and everyone adored how their hair turned out. She did different styles on everyone and each one was fresh and fit that individual girl's style to a "t". Wish I could get my hair styled for every special occasion by Liv- she's amazing!

Livia did my hair (along with relatives and bridesmaids). She was so sweet and did an awesome job with my hair - it held up in winter conditions. My trial went really well initially and she was receptive to any feedback I provided. I would highly recommend her to all brides!

Livia did my hair as well as 6 bridesmaids and 2 moms the day of my wedding at the hotel. Everyone looked fantastic! She was easy to work with and it was great to have her on site with us. My hair didn't budge the whole night even during pictures out in the crazy wind - and at the end of the evening when I looked at all the girls, they still looked fantastic too.

I heart Livia. She's fun and awesome at what she does. I have a ton of long hair that I wanted her to somehow transform into a wavy not-too-big 'do for the big day. I'd read wonderful things about her on theknot.com message boards, but scheduled a trial because I've had issues with hair styles in the past. At the trial I booked her the second I saw myself in the mirror...it was exactly what I wanted. The wedding day was no different. My hair looked just like I wanted and the waves lasted all night despite a few pictures in the rain and hours on the dance floor. She also did all of my bridesmaids and my little sister's hair...they all looked beautiful, and again their styles lasted all night.

Livia was amazing! All of her work was great. All the girls' hair looked great all night, even during some heavy dancing! Plus, she was just so nice on the day of my wedding. She chatted with all my bridesmaid and help keep the mood light and easy, not at all stressful. She and Sonia were cracking us up all morning. I would definitely recommend her!

I loved Livia! What a relief having your stylist come to your home to do your hair, and your wedding party's hair. So stress free! Livia is really professional yet laid back. She can do what you request, or offer some spot on recommendations if you are feeling undecided. I was the ANNOYING bride who decided to change my hair style after my hair trial! I decided to change into an informal fun 50's reception dress after my formal ceremony gown, and I needed a style that would work with both looks. Well, we winged it on the big day and it came out great! I have to admit, I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted but she asked the right questions and I was beyond thrilled with the look. Everyone got done on time, and Livia even gave my bridesmaids a tutorial on how to take off my birdcage veil without ruining the updo. Thanks so much! My only recommendation is book early, especially if you are getting married during the high wedding season. She's great, and therefore popular.
