AMAZING!! My biggest concern for hair and makeup for the "big day" was feeling beautiful while still looking like me. Amanda accomplished just that! I did a makeup trial with her first that I loved so I booked right away. She was so easy to work with, down to earth, flexible, and knowledgeable. I never have my hair and makeup done but she made me feel so comfortable. I didn't even do a hair trial and she nailed it on my wedding day! She also managed to squeeze in time to apply lashes for my mom and still had me done on time. I felt incredible for my wedding and Amanda played a large role in that. I HIGHLY recommend Love Your Face Beauty and will find a reason to work with Amanda again :)

Amanda is amazing. I had her do my hair and make-up for my wedding this past Saturday. I woke up the day after and my lashes and hair were still perfect! She was on time, highly professional and fun to hang out with. My family accidentally took my bridal undergarments to my wedding venue before I had gotten dressed, and I had a minor meltdown while things were being figured out. Amanda kept me calm, touched up my make-up and offered to run to her apartment and lend me a bra -- That's truly above and beyond :-) She also got my 6-year old tomboy niece to sit still long enough for a full head of curls. Very impressive!

Amanda did my hair and makeup for my recent wedding and I could not have been more thrilled that she was part of my day. She is a sweet, lovely and fun person to be around, as well as a true professional and expert at what she does. Amanda created exactly the hair look I wanted, spending extra time during my trial to make sure it looked perfect, and it held up wonderfully the entire day of my wedding! She also created a gorgeous makeup look for me. I really wasn't sure what I wanted in terms of makeup, but I was so happy with how it turned out - not easy since I barely gave her any direction! Amanda also brought 2 other stylists to help my bridal party get ready the morning of, making sure that we ran on time and everyone was taken care of. Not only was everyone thrilled with how their hair and makeup turned out, but Amanda and her team truly fit in with us and made our morning even more fun! I am sure that you cannot get better service anywhere in NY, not to mention at a great value. I highly highly recommend Amanda and hope to have the opportunity to work with her again in the near future!

Amanda is amazing! From the moment I e-mailed her to end of our hair/makeup appointment she made me feel beautiful and special. She is so easy to work with and very responsive to emails, phone calls, etc.

I have truly never felt more beautiful. Thank you, Amanda for your awesome work and attention to detail.

Amanda is wonderful! She is professional, knowledgeable, and highly skilled. She did my hair and make up for my wedding in January. She was very accommodating from start to finish. I booked her last minute and she worked with me despite my timing complications. The experience was great. She is very talented and experienced. You can tell that this is all second nature to her. With just a simple look at my face, she went to work and did her magic. Nothing was fussy or over-thought. She did everything with confidence. I trusted her and it paid off, because I had nothing to worry about, I was in excellent hands with Amanda. I wanted a classic, natural look and to enhance my features. Beyond this, I had little direction for makeup for her honestly, I had a really hard time articulating what I pictured, but she knew exactly what would look best. I just sat back and enjoyed the experience! She was efficient and quick. Hair looked fantastic as well! i got a side bun inspired by Charlize Theron, it was gorgeous. Definitely would recommend Amanda again to anyone who wants to look fabulous for the day! She is a gem!

I had gone for a trial with a different hair and make-up person. I rarely wear make-up, and I was a little uncomfortable in what she applied, but I chalked this up to just not being used to wearing it so decided to hire her. But when I tried to book her something else had come and she wasn't going to be available. She referred me to Amanda and I didn't realize at the time what a good stroke of luck that was for me. A few days before the wedding, I had to let Amanda know that I was mistaken on our event time, and she would need to come later and would have an hour less to get everyone ready. She responded immediately that it was no problem. Amanda had a lot of suggestions at the hair trial I had done with her, and I was so happy with the end results on the day of. She even managed to do an amazing job on my maid of honor (who showed up looking green from a hangover) and make our flower girl feel like a princess. I didn't feel overly made up, I really just felt beautiful and most importantly comfortable and I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup throughout the evening. Amanda's whole approach was so professional, and her calm demeanor was such a welcomed presence in a mess of a bridal room. If you're fortunate enough that she's available on your date, I would recommend you book her asap. She definitely worked some magic for us!
