I had a great experience with MAW Beauty from the very first meeting to my wedding day. Melissa was very organized from the beginning and made the getting ready process the day of my wedding stress free! She made a timeline and managed to keep us all on track without ever making us feel stressed or rushed. Her and her team came to our hotel (over an hour from their studio), got there early, and were all such professionals. I had 6 bridesmaids, 2 junior bridesmaids, my sister-in-law, and my mom pretty much all get hair and makeup done, and everybody looked beautiful!! Even my mom, who has not liked her hair when getting it done in the past was very happy with the result! My hair and makeup lasted well over 12 hours through a humid, windy day and lots of dancing, and still looked great! I highly recommend working with MAW Beauty!

Booking Melissa and her team was one of the BEST decisions I made for the day! Melissa and Miranda did my make-up as well as my maid of honor and the bride and groom's mom's make-up. Everyone loved how their make-up came out and we received so many compliments throughout the day on how our make-up looked so natural and stayed so well. Melissa also provides a amazing service to provide touch-ups on location before, during, and after pictures. She came with us to our picture location, and stayed with us until after the ceremony to make sure I and my bridal party still had lipstick on, wasn't shiny and looked as fresh as we did earlier in the day. If you are going to have your make-up done I highly recommend this service, especially during the hot and humid summer months.

I had been for a couple of trials and just wasn't getting the look I was looking for. I wanted something natural while still looking great in pictures. As soon as I had my trial I knew that Melissa was it! The touch-up service she provides does provided me with the reassurance that no matter what the weather my make-up was going to look great and also gives you that "movie star" treatment that you deserve on your day.

I would recommend Melissa and her team without a doubt to any friend or family. You will not be disappointed in her work!

Melissa and her team did an amazing job! You will not go wrong booking her. They provided on-site hair and makeup for myself, 5 bridesmaids and 2 mothers. We had an early ceremony at 11am and the team arrived bright and early with great attitudes ready to go. They came prepared with everything, including extra mirrors and lighting. It was amazing they were able to finish everybody's hair and makeup on time. Everybody loved their looks, and my hair and makeup turned out even better than the trial. I could not have been happier. The makeup lasted all day and night! For somebody that doesn't wear much makeup on a daily basis, the airbrush was perfect, felt light and natural and not caked on. Looked like I had flawless skin in all my photos too! I only wish I'd hired her for all day touchups. The day was a bit windy and my hair got blown with a few strands out of place by reception time. Still held up well overall.

Melissa was super organized and professional. I never had to worry. I would highly recommend her. She makes for a stress free wedding day!

Melissa and one of her team members did my hair and hair and makeup for my bridal party. I cannot say enough good things about her services. She was very easy to work with and they did a phenomenal job with our hair and makeup. I had a few changes to my contract after we had set things up and Melissa was so patient with everything. The morning of my wedding, they arrived early to set up. They were fun, professional and relaxed the whole morning. I am so thankful to Melissa for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day!

Melissa and her team did an amazing job. They did not only my hair and makeup but also my mother's and matron of honor's. We got compliments all night. I had a little disagreement with Melissa about our contract and she addressed it right away and made sure I was happy. I was very pleased and would recommend her to anyone.

Melissa and her assistant provided hair and makeup for me, my mom and my bridesmaids on my wedding day a few weeks ago. Melissa was exceptionally easy to work with throughout: very accessible by email and phone, offered clear contract terms, easy consultation scheduling (and a lovely studio to boot), and extremely reasonable rates. She was on time and very professional (in both appearance and demeanor) on the day. She handled a diversity of hair and skin types (and personalities!) -- on a very steamy, humid day -- with grace and great sense of humor. I am very pleased with the service we received, and would recommend Melissa without reservation to other Rhode Island brides!

Melissa and Felicia from MAW Beauty is amazing. They did such an amazing job on me and my bridal party's hair and makeup. We all felt beautiful. I can quote my matron of honor who declared "This is the best I have ever looked in my life". It was also so great that Melissa and Felicia traveled out to West Greenwich to take care of us. It really helped us all relax and allow ourselves to be pampered. Melissa played such an important part in my very special day.

My bridal party, mother, and myself used M.A.W beauty for my wedding on August 3rd, 2013. I cannot say a bad thing about her team. Melissa, Miranda and Kim came to our hotel room the morning of the wedding. All three were professional and wonderful to be around. The morning went so smoothly. It honestly felt like a big slumber party. Melissa and her team made the day more enjoyable. My hair stayed in place the whole day and received many complements. My make up was amazing. I do not wear makeup usually and she did not make me look like a different person, she made me look like me, but better.

Melissa was amazing she even sent another stylist, Felisia, to my mother-in-law’s hotel so she could get her hair and makeup done. I loved that payment was due 2 weeks before the wedding so there was no worrying about money on the big day. Not having to worry about paying really made a difference on the stress level. I highly recommend M.A.W beauty for your bridal hair and makeup. I would not trust anyone else.
