Magda is a pleasure to work with and is really talented at hair design. I have recommended Magda for many of my clients in the past so I knew I wanted her to take care of my bridal party and me on my wedding day! I could not have been more pleased with her work. She is efficient and always arrives early to set-up. Magda really cares about her clients and this is evident with her other reviews.

Selecting Magda is an easy decision. She takes the worry out of the day!
Thank you for everything Magda! Xox

I booked Magda and her team for my wedding on July 20, 2013. I first met Magda in February for my trial. Within minutes, I knew this was the person I wanted to work with for my wedding. She listens to exactly what you want and instantly both her vision and your own vision come to life. On the day of my wedding, her team was on time and ready to go. All of my bridesmaids looked beautiful, my mother and mother-in-law were ecstatic, and I couldn't have been more pleased with how I looked at how my entire wedding party looked. I got married on the hottest day of the summer, and when you look at pictures my hair and make-up is still in place. Every guest commented on how beautiful everyone looked, and it was all because of Magda and her team. My best friend was so thrilled with the way she looked, that she booked Magda for her own wedding this summer. I would highly recommend Magda to anyone who is getting married and know they will not be disappointed in their choice.

I had a fantastic experience with Magda. She was very punctual, professional and easy to work with. She came in early to set up and made sure that both me and my mom were ready and looked absolutely flawless on my wedding day. Magda did such a magical job on my wedding hair and makeup. I had the individual lashes put on and they looked incredible. My hair and makeup stayed looking flawless all night and I have received many compliments from our guests. So did my mom. It blew my mind how amazing my mom looked. Magda was able to enhance my mom’s natural beauty and made her makeup look very elegant and age appropriate. My mom loved it! My wedding pictures proved that Magda is a very professional and talented artists!!!. I have already booked her for this year’s events; a wedding, a communion and a 50th anniversary party. I can’t even imagine not having Magda do my hair and makeup and I’m looking forward to see more of Magda’s amazing results on me .

Magda did hair and makeup for myself for my wedding, along with my 7 bridesmaids and mob! She was absolutely amazing!! My hair was perfect and she did exaxy what I wanted. All I had to do was give her an idea of what I wanted and she got to work. I could not have asked for a better hair and makeup artist. My wedding day was perfect and I can thank Magda for having such a huge part in that. My hair lasted all night and my makeup did not smudge at all even though it was almost 100 degrees and we took our pics outside! You should definitely use her!!

Magda did my makeup for my wedding day and was awesome. She is a one-woman-army of beauty. As a business woman, she was punctual, responsive and flexible with time changes. As a makeup artist, my makeup was flawless and beautiful all day. I looked and felt awesome. I don't usually wear makeup so it was very important to me to look natural and not feel like I was caked with makeup, but still look great in my photos. Magda did all of those things. I also truly appreciated how calm and focused she was the monring of my wedding since I was super frazzled. She definately helped me calm down :)

I would definitely recommend her to any bride.

Magda is AMAZING. She made me feel like a supermodel on my wedding day. I am not someone who likes to look overly made-up, but I also wanted to look special on my wedding day, and Magda totally understood what I meant and followed my wishes to a T. She is truly a professional in every way! My bridesmaids were also thrilled with their hair and makeup. This was especially important to me because with the exception of my maid of honor, my bridesmaids were all my young nieces. So, I was nervous about them looking too made up or wearing too much makeup for their ages. But Magda completely respected their ages and their wishes, and made them all look simply gorgeous. The same goes for my mother, who hadn't worn makeup in probably 30 years and was very uncomfortable with it! But Magda did an amazing job with her, too. I have gotten SOOO many compliments on how great my hair and makeup looked, as well as my bridesmaids'! I cannot recommend Magda highly enough!!!

Magda did the makeup for myself, my bridesmaids and my mom for my July wedding. She is professional, reliable and understanding. My trial and wedding day makeup was fabulous- she used all the right products and colors for me on both occasions. She made me look like myself but better! My husband was worried that I would show up looking like a "clown" but one of the first things he commented on was that I looked like me! One more important point I would like to make here is that Magda was recommended to me by another makeup artist who has worked with her; plus my hair stylist (who has been in the business for 20+ years and had never worked with her before) was very impressed with her work and how well they collaborated on all our looks. Magda is amazing! I am usually sketchy about using people that were not referred by a personal acquaintance but I was so pleasantly surprised. I will continue to use Magda's services for as long as I can!

My sister hired Magda to do make-up for her (the bride), the bridesmaids (myself) and our Mom for her July wedding. The morning of the wedding was the first time I met Magda and my first impression was a fantastic one. She came fully prepared, she was extremely friendly and nice, she demonstrated her flexibility with completing our make-up routine and collaborated extremely well with our hair stylist, whom she's never worked with before! Magda took the time to ensure all of our make-up enhanced our features, keeping us looking very natural and like ourselves! I would surely recommend her to any bride and bridal party!

Magda is fantastic. She did my make-up and hair and the makeup for my wedding party. I found her to be very professional and was willing to come to me, which during a crazy time, made it very easy to do business with her. I wanted a little bit of a retro look but with fun and flair. She totally delivered. My makeup was perfect and it lasted all day.

Magda is, hands-down, the BEST wedding hair & makeup stylist in the whole wide world!!!! She has done my hair & makeup several times for weddings & on December 23 she made me look like the most elegantly beautiful, natural version of myself. That's the key, when she does my hair & makeup I still see myself, just a prettier version! I didn't even bother with a consultation, she's just that good. Magda is extremely talented, sweet, honest & hard working! I would never trust my hair & makeup to anyone else & you shouldn't either!

To say that Magda did an amazing job on hair and makeup for my wedding would be an understatement. She really made my day perfect!! The talent that she and her team brought the day of my wedding was amazing, and everyone was absolutely thrilled with the work that they did. My hair and makeup were flawless, she knew exactly what to do and did it well. All of my bridesmaids could not have been happier, she did exactly what they asked and make them look amazing. I could not be happier, thank you so so much!!!!!!!!

Magda was my hair stylist for my September 23rd wedding, and she was absolutely a pleasure to work with. Not only did she understand me, but was also willing to give me an additional trial, and made me feel and look AMAZING on my wedding day! She also did my hair and makeup for my bridal shower, so I can confirm she is the best at what she does. Thank you, Magda!

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding this past September and I could not have asked to have a better person to do my hair and make-up than Magda. I brought a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like and what she did was soooo much better. It was absolutely gorgeous and did not move all night. I have very, very hard hair to work with especially when doing up-do's and this was the first time I didn't have to keep fixing my hair. As for my make-up, I didn't have to say or do a thing. She just looked at me and suggested a few things, which I of course let her do since she is the professional, and I loved it! I didn't look fake and she brought out all of my features! You would have never known I was just a bridesmaid in the wedding because I was treated like I was the bride. I will definitely recommend her to anyone who asks and I plan on using her when I get married!!!

Susie was beyond professional and really took time to accentuate each persons features. We had a great time with our beauty morning and really enjoyed our time with Susie. I highly recommend her and all of the girls from Magda's Designs and look forward to using them again in the future for any event.

Magda is amazing!!! And her work is above amazing!
She made sure everything went smoothly as far as hair and make up! She is very professional but so fun at the same time! She was on time in the morning... Maybe like 10 mins early! She did all 8 of my bridesmaids and not one complaint!! All just thrilled with both their hair and make up! I can't describe in words how happy I was with my hair and make up. She also made this absolutely beautiful, unique, classy hair piece for me to wear that night...just loved it! It was perfect, it went so well with my whole look and it didn't look like some ordinary hair piece! Magda really understood the look I wanted immediately!
She actually did my hair and make up for the following day dinner... And wow also stunning....but she made sure I looked different than the night before! The girls that came with her to assist were also really good!! I liked how Magda and they were all on the same page. EVERYONE from bride to flower girls were ready with time to kill! And looking fabulous! Hair and make up stayed put and photo ready alll day and night! I honestly didn't do one touch up because there was just no need!!! I have magda to thank for making sure the morning of my weddingnwent smoothly and stress free! She also knows that YOU ARE the bride and that you are her main priority! Just love her! I wish I could have her for hair and make up everyday! If you want to look stunning all day and in your pictures magda is your girl!

For my October wedding, Magda did both my hair and make-up and my bridesmaids as well. She was professional, punctual, and efficient. My make-up was exactly how I pictured it to be on my wedding day. My bridesmaids make-up matched perfectly with the eggplant colored gowns. Overall, she did an awesome job! My make-up stayed on throughout the entire night and my hair held up well considering all the dancing I did throughout the night. Magda met with me about a month before my wedding, and helped me pick out a veil and a headpeice that matched perfectly with my ivory dress. We were all so pleased with her services, I would highly recommend her to any bride that wants to look faboulus on her wedding day! -Mitzi S.

I used Magda for my recent wedding and she was terrific. She did the makeup for myself, 4 of my bridesmaids and my mother. The makeup was beautiful and flawless and she listened to the requests of all of the girls and was very accomodating. Everyone looked very elegant and not at all overdone. At my trial I felt that some of the eye makeup was heavy handed and when I mentioned it to her, Madga took my concerns to heart and made the appropriate changes so that I felt comfortable and beautiful on my special day. I would absolutely recommend her!

Magda did the hair and makeup for my wedding on 9/5/2010. Including myself, Magda and her team worked on ten of us the morning of my wedding. They were on time, set up quickly, and immediately got started on me and the other girls. Magda and her assistants were professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with! We were finished early and getting ready was a relaxing and fun experience, thanks to Magda's hard work and expertise. I absolutely loved the way my hair and makeup looked, and I got compliments all day and night! (I had had a trial done back in April and Magda was great then too - we talked over how I wanted to look on my wedding day and she listened to my requests and gave me a very 'romantic' yet elegant hairstyle and soft makeup). Additionally, she recommended skin products for me to use and gave me a cleansing/exfoliating routine so that my skin would look its best. Finally, my bridesmaids looked perfect and beautiful - Magda listened to them and styled their hair according to their preferences. She really understood the look and 'theme' I was going for and I thought all of the girls looked elegant and classy. I thought she was completely fabulous and I can't thank her enough for being an integral part of my dream wedding :) I would highly recommend Magda and her team!

And I must say… I have never received so many compliments in my life!! I felt like a princess for the day, thanks to Magda. Not only was she incredibly talented, but she was very professional and courteous throughout the whole day. I would recommend Magda’s services to all my family and friends.

Magda and her whole team were amazing! They provided 11 sets of hair and make-up; everyone was done on time, and looked gorgeous. Madga is professional, responsive, and incredibly talented. I'm sure you'll read that dozens of times on any reviews of her. However, perhaps the best thing I can say about my personal experience with Magda was that she took my suggestions seriously. I was in a mind-set to defer to her as a professional stylist, but was afraid of ending up with the dreaded "prom hair." While she encouraged me to try new ideas, I never felt any pressure to say OK to something I didn't like. At the end of the day, I ended up with the perfect, vaguely-retro, easy to manage hair and make-up that I had wanted. My bridemaids were all styled according to what they had asked for-- sleek and modern or romantic or glam. The moms were all thrilled, and everyone was comfortable enough to forget about how we looked and simply enjoy the party. I highly recommend her and her team.

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about Magda and her team. Magda worked very closely with me prior to the wedding until I was satisfied with my hair and make-up. I have curly hair and thought that it would be difficult to create a nice hair-do, Magda worked with my curls with ease and created an elegant and classy look. Regarding make-up, I wear very little or none at all on a regular basis, Magda used airbrushing on me and gave me a very NATURAL and elegant look. The day of the wedding, Magda and her team were on time and ready to get to work. They worked on 9 make-ups and 6 hairs and they had us ready on-time. I received nothing but compliments on my hair and make-up from family and friends throughout the night, I�m still hearing about it and it�s been 7 weeks later. Her office in is NJ but I always met her in the city at the Designer Loft as she has no issues with transportation, she goes where you are! I HIGHLY recommend her, I know of two individuals getting married next summer and I have already passed on her contact information. If anyone has questions call her she is very approachable and easy to work with! Thank you Magda for making me and my ladies look beautiful on my special day!

I showed Magda a picture of a celebrity hair style I wanted to wear on my wedding day and she was able to create the exact look on my hair. She is great at what she does and easy to work with because she really wants to please her brides. My sister-in-law hired Magda as well for her upcoming wedding in June. I'm very hard to please so I'm confident that Magda can please any bride, even brides with the most discerning taste. If you want to feel like a celebrity on your big day, hire Magda.

Magda was amazing! I was SO thankful that I found someone so talented and that didn't give me a "Prom up do"! That's how I knew she was the one!!! She was so accomodating and down to earth. She made me look stunning! She met us in Manahawkin, NJ for our wedding at Bonnet Island Estate. She did my hair and make up, my mom's hair and make up, 5 bridesmaid's hair as well as my maid of honor's eye make up! We just got our wedding pictures back and I was floored at how beautiful my hair and make up was. I don't think I will ever look or feel as beautiful as I did on wedding day.

Can't say enough great things about Magda. She did the hair for my entire bridal party and everyone looked and felt fantastic. I loved my hair and airbrushed makeup. Everything stayed perfectly for the entire day! She even schlepped all the way to our location and made it so easy and relaxing the morning of our wedding. Again - I strongly recommend this vendor.

I would highly recommend Magda in the future. She did an amazing job creating my wedding hair and makeup looks. The entire look turned out better than I ever imagined. She patiently answered any questions I had prior to the wedding day and was very knowledgeable with advice and suggestions. On the day of the wedding she arrived on time and was on target with the amount of time it would take to do hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaid. I have absolutely no complaints about the quality of her service.

I can't say enough about how great Magda and her hair/makeup artist, Kristin, were for my wedding! Kristin did hair and makeup for myself, the bridal party and my mother, and everyone looked fantastic. I have never felt so beautiful in my life and have never seen my mom so happy with her hair. Kristin really understood my personality and my vision for my wedding. I couldn't have picked a better vendor for my wedding! Magda's Designs is the best!

Magda truly knocked it out of the park with my hair and makeup. My wedding was outdoors in a garden and I was going with a romantic, vintage look. I don’t generally wear a lot of makeup, and I have very curly hair that I am reluctant to let anyone else touch. But Magda worked wonders on both fronts. She gave my makeup a soft, natural look that didn’t look overly done but was enough for the photos to pop, and stood up well to the long humid summer day. And my hair was amazing! She loosened my curls in a way that I’d never seen before, pinned them up loosely with a gorgeous swooping side part, and found just the right way to use a beautiful large silk flower that I’d bought in place of a veil. I knew Magda would be great to work with because she did my sister’s wedding, too, and created a fabulous look for me around a bright lipstick that I’d picked out. She’s fun and upbeat and did a wonderful job with my mother and sisters, too. I recommend her highly!

Magda does exquisite work with hair and make-up. She makes it very natural but elegant. She comes to you wherever you are getting ready. She does a fantastic job, I would just say you definitely pay for it. If you have seen her work at a wedding or even online I would say hire her and don't even do the trial. Only do the trial if you have never seen her work or you are going to try on your dress with the hair and make-up done. She'll do a fantastic job even without the trial. She will also tell you like it is.

Magda did my hair and makeup as well as all the bridesmaids, junior bridesmaids and flower girl. Every single person's hair was gorgeous! Makeup perfect! everyone looked like a celebrity! I was so happy with my hair and makeup! The airbrushing of the makeup was the best thing I could have ever done- it makes your skin look flawless- and it doesnt feel like you have makup on all! My only gripe --- is Magda had a lot of hair and makeup to do- probably about 10 hair and 5 makeup- including me the bride - my ceremony started at 11- she assured me that her starting at 6:00 was enough time becuase she was bringing an assistant- - she did not bring an assistant with her- and i was late!!! my guests waited for a little while- and i had to wind up taking pictures during my cocktail hour instead of before the wedding as I had planned- but it could have been worse! looking beautiful was worth it! I would reccomend her highly - just maybe ask her to come a little earlier then she reccomends

Magda did both hair & makeup for myself, my bridesmaids, and my mother. She arrived on time and got right to work and allowed herself more than enough time to finish all of the services without rushing or slacking in her work. Everyone's hair looked beautiful and stayed put through the entire day and night and even through til the next morning, and the makeup looked fantastic and lasted without needing any touchups through 5 hours of dancing and sweating and having a good time. When I went for my initial trial with Magda I was unhappy with my makeup. The second time around I told her exactly what I wanted, something that I was unsure of the first time, and she did a beautiful job of making me up to look even more glamorous and elegant than I had imagined.

I shopped around for hair and makeup services that would travel to me the day of my wedding for quite a few months before I decided to go with Magda. Her prices were comparable to others and in some cases considerably less expensive, but the work she did was fantastic. I would highly recommend her, but I will warn that she does have somewhat of what I would call a "strong personality." She made remarks and the way that she explained or said things may have come across wrong to some people but I recognized it as her just being very serious about her work, and she definitely is. I know that there have been other brides who have commented about the same thing, as her maybe coming across as not very personable but like I said I interpreted it as her just taking her work very seriously and wanting to educate her clients. During my trials Magda definitely educated me on a few things and explained to me what I need to do and not do to keep my skin looking nice and the methods that she uses to apply makeup and such. It is good advice, too, something that I would not have thought much about.

Anyway I really loved the work that Magda did and am so happy that I went with her for my hair and makeup for my wedding. I am very pleased with the results and would use her again!

Magda does Make-up Magic!
Any other issue is beside that point. If you have additional concerns- and there might be some- I recommend you use your time and energy to deal with them and concentrate on the results. Keep that in mind as you read below.
Originally my regular stylist was going to do my wedding. We did a trial and took pictures but events kept her from being able to be there the big day. So thats why I hired Magda's Designs on (relatively) short notice. My hair was done by another beautician, Netia, working with Magda. I had brought photos of myself done the way I liked to the trial. They said it was my time to "play" but it didn't feel like fun. The hair stylist came a bit late, seemed rushed and not focused. I couldn't seem to impress upon her what I wanted. I just didn't have the energy to keep correcting her details and decided accepting a final version was on me and I could live with it.

I had not intended to hire anyone for make-up but changed my mind while booking for the hair styling. Magda did my make-up. She asked about what effect I wanted and delivered it! If I could, I would put that last sentence in intalics. I wanted to look glowing not glam -but I bet if I told her my dream was to be some Kardashian-like creature she would have made me just as pleased. She is very self-confident, she listens and then gets to work. The day of the wedding she also did my Mom's make-up and it was just right; my Mom's a natural beauty and the make-up just let her shine.

I also booked at the salon in the same building and had Magda give my mother a facial. She also did an especially careful facial for me. Magda does "sell" while she works, so be prepared. You are hiring her for her make-up skills and she has them.

The "day of" the hair stylist did seem rushed but my MOH was late so I take that into account. There did not seem to be any cushion in her schedule, something I noticed when Netia was late to my trial. Nedia did my MOH, then my BM, then me. The results weren't what we had in mind but there did not seem to be any time to stop and fix things. We were told we looked beautiful.

I wish I could review the hair and make-up seperately. The hair stylist is just a less focused person who you need to engage. I could have said I wanted changes, so ask for more time then you should need or that won't be an option.

Magda did hair for my bridesmaids and 2 relatives who did not speak english well. She did beautiful hair for all of the bridesmaids, but had a little difficulty with one of the ladies. She had no patience and was rudely rolling her eyes at the other girls in the room. Not very professional. It did not help to have Magda acting like this when it's already a stressful morning for the bride.

I used Magda for my wedding on 10/2/10. She does awesome work! I had one make-up trial done and loved it - it was done the same way on my wedding day. I also had two hair trials (because I changed my mind after the first one). She traveled to my hotel on my wedding day, on time, and did make-up for me, my mom, and two bridesmaids. She also did hair for me, two bridesmaids and a touch-up on my mom. She did not need an assistant. The services are pricey - but well worth it for such a big day. She really knows what looks best on you and what will photograph the best. The makeup and hair styles lasted from early morning to the after party. The hair & make-up was very natural, pretty, and we all looked like ourselves - not too overdone. She listened to all the girl's concerns and what they wanted. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Magda did mine and my maid of honor's hair on my wedding day, and in both cases, our hair was beautiful. She did a great job, working thoughtfully on our overall look and making sure we liked the way it was done. The first time I went to meet Magda, when planning the wedding, she did not show up and emailed me there was an emergency, which was unfortunate and I understood. The second time she was late, because of traffic, and this frustrated me because I left work early to meet her. And on the wedding morning she was again late, because of navigation issues. I mention this because she was 0/3 on timeliness, and it worried me that she might not show up at all on each occasion! Her work is good though, and she is a competent stylist and nice person.

Here's the thing: Magda's work is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. There is no doubt about that. Jessica's makeup- I don't know how she did it, but I looked like a movie star ALL NIGHT LONG. Yet, the makeup came off easily when I wanted it to. Magical.

My bridesmaids and Mom looked gorgeous.

However, a week before the wedding, Magda was nowhere to be found, her voicemail box was full and she wasn't responding to my emails. That will keep any bride on edge. However, once we got back in touch, she said she was having Blackberry Issues. But to not answer emails for over a week? Not a good way to run your business, even when the product is practically impeccable.

Magda and Jessica (LOVE HER!) were very flexible with the number of people getting hair and makeup done (even when it was more people than they originally thought) and got everything done on time.

HOWEVER, MAGDA LEFT WITHOUT PUTTING MY VEIL IN AND THEN WE COULDN'T GET IN TOUCH WITH HER VIA PHONE AGAIN! We had a hard time trying to figure out how to put it in and it kept falling out of my head- IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CEREMONY... So dissapointing and frustrating because Magda's work on my hair was EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED. She's sooooo good at the beauty work but there's more to running a business than that.

So, if she actually answers your calls and if you don't get nervous easily, I do recommend her for the quality of her work and attention to detail and Jessica was simply phenomenal. She did show up and give what I'd asked for but the veil thing... maybe she forgot because she had an extra bridesmaid to do last minute.

Magda did my cousin's hair for her wedding, and her party. My cousin's hair was nothing special, the curls were uneven, and after an hour of dancing her hair went flat! She was little disappointed and I write this review because I was there from the very beginning of her big day. I noticed Magda used old tools (curlers) so my advice to her is to try new tools. She also charged $70 for touch-up (blow dry) for our grandma who had hair 2 inches long.

I had a trial with Magda's associates about a month before my wedding. I had a bad trial before that and was running out of time. At the trial, the girl did NOT put any product in my hair, did not do anything to add volume, then assured me that it was only a trial and all would be right on my wedding day. Day of my wedding, I had four different photos of how I wanted my hair. At no point did my hair even come close to the photos, and at one point, I ran out of the chair and into the bathroom crying. I was so upset at the outcome and there was no time to fix it. Bottom line is inexperienced hair stylists were sent to do a job that the owner probably should have done herself, especially since I was assured that my hair would look just as I asked the day of my wedding. Magda - if you're reading this, i'm still waiting for your call.

Think twice before booking Magda's Designs.

At the trial, the girl did NOT put any product in my hair, did not do anything to add volume, then assured me that it was only a trial and all would be right on my wedding day. Day of my wedding, I had four different photos of how I wanted my hair. At no point did my hair even come close to the photos, and at one point, I ran out of the chair and into the bathroom crying. I was so upset at the outcome and there was no time to fix it. Bottom line is inexperienced hair stylists were sent to do a job that the owner probably should have done herself, especially since I was assured that my hair would look just as I asked the day of my wedding. Magda - if you're reading this, i'm still waiting for your call.

I do have mixed feelings on Magda's Designs. I initially went in for my hair and makeup trial. I loved everything. My hair and makeup looked fabulous. The only problem is, I wished the day of my trial was my wedding day. Magda did show up on time on the day of my wedding. She did a great job on my bridesmaid's hair and makeup. And she did a good job on my Mother's hair and makeup. She saved me for last, which may have been a bad idea. She ended up running late with me, which was an absolute inconvenience when my florist, photographer and videographer showed up and I was not ready. She really needs to leave herself more time. Before she started with me, I warned her that I was tan and that my hair was lighter then when she did the trial. I stated that she may need to use different colors since I had a completely different hair color and complexion. I thought that as a hair and makeup artist she would be able to adapt to this. When she was finished, I realized that my hair was double the size of what it had been on the trial. She basically gave me a beehive hair-do. She had to re-do most of my hairstyle. Then my eyeshadow looked gray. When I did make a statement that I was not pleased with the makeup, she had the nerve to argue with me. She stated, "Well I used the same colors as I did on the trial." I guess she forgot that I had a completely different skin tone. Even I know to use different eyeshadows in the winter verse summer. After re-doing my hair, it came out fine. But my makeup looked like I got punched in the eye. Needless to say after the hair re-adjusment I was completely running late for my wedding. My only regret about my whole wedding was my makeup. I guess you can take your chance with Magda. She did do well on my trial and with my bridesmaid's makeup. But, I know that if I had to do it again, I would not take a chance like that on my wedding day.

I hired Magda close to a year before my wedding. I wasn't 100% happy with my hair initially, but I thought that I had a year and once my hair grew a bit longer, we could work with it. I went back for a 2nd trial and still not happy. On top of not being happy with my hair, I was now being told that we needed to be at Magda's place earlier than initially planned, #1. #2, things that were initially promised in the beginning were now being revoked, and #3, I was told that she had a total of 4 weddings booked on this day, including my wedding. I went home in tears and rushed to find another salon to work with for both myself and my bridal party. Within a week's time, 1 month before my wedding, I did find a blessing. However, I had paid Magda my $300 deposit a year ago and lost that...yes, she kept it. I paid Magda for my two trials, plus tips and a $300 deposit. I attempted to contact Magda to cancel with her once and emailed her twice so I wouldn't be charged the full payment of the contracted amount and I did not get any call backs or email feedback. Not even to ask me why I was cancelling. Not a word. It's stressful enough to plan a wedding and then to deal with this and it's expensive enough to plan a wedding. When someone turns around...contract or not...literally takes $300.00 from you w/o any type of service completed, esp when 3 other weddings were planned that day, I think is extremely poor business. It is morally wrong. I will not tell you who ended up doing my hair and make up that day, b/c I will not stoop to Magda's level, but I will warn you and tell you to think twice before booking your most important day with Magda's Designs. My hair and makeup along with my mom's and 3 other girls' hair and makeup turned out beautifully and it wasn't with the help of Magda's Designs. I am so glad I found someone else to assist me and my girls on this very special day! Magda...to you.....poor way to run a business!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I rate this service at a big fat zero!!!!
