I spent 3 months emailing and calling salons and hair services to inquire if they were able and willing to work with curly hair for bridal styles. Most either didn't bother to respond or flat out said the only way we'll touch it is if we blow it straight first. Well that just made my heart drop. I have pretty seriously curly hair and the idea of getting married with straight hair just seemed wrong. So trying to stay true to my roots, literally, I reached out to Tina and found a hair angel. During my first meeting with her I was in awe of what she could do and how excited and willing she was to take on this kind of a challenge. Then once I came in for my trial...oh that sealed the deal! I didn't have too many ideas of what I wanted but she created something amazing. And when she was done and I went home, my fiance was so impressed by my new "do" he took me out for dinner straight away!! Now that's saying something. The day of. Ohhhh the day of the wedding was intense. With temperatures near 85, high humidity and lots of gel and stress; I am not going to lie, I was worried. However, Tina came in with her equipment, called the hotel staff for the items she needed and went to work. Now my hair put up a bit of a fight but Tina found a way to tame the beast. And an hour after she was done when the beast reared it's ugly head again in the way of frizz she and I made direct trip to the bathroom and fixed it up with a handful of strategically placed product. I slathered it on and she worked her magic to ensure it was properly placed. The result was hair that I LOVED and everyone thought looked amazing! Tina has amazing creativity and depth of knowledge on how to handle all sorts of hair. She gave each girl a different look that really represented them and their personality. She worked with my curls and created my dream hair...something I will never forget and will always love. I'll be going back to Tina for any and all special occasions.

Several of my friends got married a year before I did, and their hair was AMAZING! Tina was their hair stylist and I knew at that very moment that I wanted her to do my hair and my bridal party's hair.From the moment I first met Tina, I knew she was the girl for me! She was extremely professional and had a lot of great ideas. She even let me look through her iPad of previous clients. It was nice to see that she had so MANY different styles to choose from and it was comforting to know that Tina doesn't stick to the "typical up-dos" that some salons do when dealing with brides. Right before my hair trial, I called Tina and told her that my hair wasn't as long as I had anticipated. Tina suggested that I add a few extensions. She matched my hair color perfectly and ordered extensions so that I would have them by my trial. When I went for my trial, I was SOOO excited to see how great my extensions looked! Tina did a great job prepping them ahead of time and she was soooo excited to add them to my look. My hair is fine but can frizz out of control with humidity. Tina reassured me that everything would be fine on June 1st (day of my wedding) and she would make sure that I would have enough hair product. My trial was flawless, and she took several pictures to make sure I liked what it looked like in photos. She saved the photos so she could refer back to them on the day of my wedding. Tina spent a little over an hour on my hair (she wanted it to be perfect, and she knew I felt the same way :) Tina did such a great job doing my hair that it held up THE ENTIRE night. There was never a time that I felt my hair was coming loose. My husband is Greek and she knew I was going to be doing A LOT of Greek dancing, so she secured my hair to make sure it wouldn't come undone. The next morning, I took some of the pins out and wore my hair to our post-wedding brunch. People couldn't believe how fabulous my hair still looked!

Tina is amazing and extremely talented!

Both Tina, the hair stylist, and Jennifer, the make-up artist, were amazing. They were incredibly accomodating to schedule my trials, they came to my bridal suite, and did a fantastic job with my hair and make-up. I have a lot of hair, which is often hard to manage, but Tina made it perfect. And Jennifer made my less-than-perfect skin look flawless.

Magnificent Brides provided hair and makeup for myself and some members of my bridal party. They were extremely organized, yet flexible to work around late arrivals. I didn't have a trial with Jen and my makeup turned out amazing! I had a trial with Tina, and later decided I wanted a different look. She was extremely flexible, even when I decided to go back to the original look! Tina and Jen are extremely professional! I was getting compliments all night long on my hair and makeup!! Thanks Jen & Tina!!

Tina is awesome! I had hair trials with many different people to do my hair for my wedding day. I am very picky and was starting to get nervous that I wouldn't be able to find someone. Tina was my savior! She is patient, listened to what I wanted, and proceeded to do my hair EXACTLY the way I wanted in both the trial and on the wedding day. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. She responded to all of my questions in a very prompt manner whenever I emailed her. Tina arrived early on the day of the wedding and stuck to the schedule she created for my bridal party. All my girls looked beautiful and the whole getting ready experience before the ceremony was very calm and relaxing thanks to Tina. I highly recommend her!

I cannot say enough good things about Tina. She is truly a professional and one who knows how to make brides, and bridesmaids alike, feel magnificent. Each of my bridesmaids had a different request, and Tina masterfully delivered hairstyles that flattered everyone. I highly recommend using Tina as she is the best of the best.

Tina and Jen did an AMAZING job on all my bridesmaids' hair and makeup! They were extremely efficient, successfully completing the hair and makeup of nearly 10 girls the morning of my wedding! The majority of the time, they were ahead of schedule, very impressive! All the girls looked beautiful - hair was stylish and sophisticated; makeup was natural yet stunning. Most importantly, they were a pleasure to have around in the morning - talkative, calm, fun, it felt like we've all been friends forever! I would recommend Tina and Jen with 110% confidence to ALL brides!!!!!

I can't say that a 5 start is truly enough! 100+ that's for sure!
Tina and Jennifer more than exceeded my expectations! I'm a picky person day to day and can you imagine me on my own wedding day? I emailed Tina and Jennifer numerous times BEFORE I even booked with them and they were both so patient. Yes, I was even crazy at times!
It's your special day and it happens once do I wanted to make sure everything was perfect!
I will tell you it was!
They were both highly rated and I read the reviews and I was happy with all of them.
I still went a head and booked my trials for both the hair and makeup.
They even suggested that I do them on a special occasion so I can enjoy it and really see how long your hair/make up lasts. So they recommend that I do both for my bridal shower! What a great idea, thanks girls! Not only are you spending the money and get great use out of it but you also truly learn to see if you will like it. You can even try your dress on later to see how you like it with your hair/make up.
Tina and Jennifer are both beautiful inside and out, you can truly see that when you first even meet them!
They really listen to you and are both so talented with what they can do! I recommend bringing pictures of the hair and make up you like. I did that with both and I can tell you they copied it to the T but did an even better job!
Jennifer's make up doesn't feel heavy and looks so natural. She even used the fake eye lashes and they looked so real!
Tina literally created an art with my hair. I've seen many bridal hair pictures. I ended up picking one that I really liked and she added beauty to it! I loved it so much!
They come to YOU on the day of your wedding and I can't tell you what a great service this is to you on the day of your wedding.
I will continue to use Tina to cut my hair on a normal basis and use Jennifer for my special occasion make up!
They are truly priced very well for the services they offer!
You won't be dissapointed!
Good luck girls!
Thank you again Tina and Jennifer! AMAZING JOB! I will be sending all my friends and family to you!

I can not say enough good things about Tina & Jennifer! They made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire planning process. From the initial meeting, to the trial, the scheduling, and the day of my wedding! The quality of their work was superior! They are able to work with your best features and enhance them. Not only did I look beautiful, but it lasted the entire day! I looked just as beautiful at the end of the reception as I did at the beginning. One of Tina & Jennifer’s best qualities is the superior communication. They listen first, and then address your questions or concerns. All phone calls and emails were returned with unparalleled speed and professionalism. Do not hesitate to contact Magnificent Brides with any hair and makeup needs. If you are able to book them for your big day, count yourself lucky as they truly are the BEST!

I could not have asked for a better hair and makeup team for my MArch 6th 2010 wedding. We had so many time changes with me adding in new people for them to work on and they never had any issues with that. I was a little concerned with taking my pictures outside before the wedding that I may need them to hang around to fix me up before,but they were right. There was no need because everything held perfectly the entire evening. That says something about the quality of their work. This really does take the stress out of having to go to a salon before your big day and it is such a better experience!

I think hair and make-up is one of the most important part for a bride on her wedding day. When a women feels beautiful it really shows in pictures, as well as to the guests.

I really got to know Tina and Jennifer on a personal/professional level. I felt very comfortable with them, and they were very flexible and accommodating. I had 10 women that needed to get ready and it was done without a hitch. Even my bridesmaid that was started at 8:00 a.m still had beautiful hair and make-up at 12:00 a.m.

I let all of my girls choose their hairstyles and they all look unique and were comfortable with their look. Each girl�s personality was reflected with their hairstyle and their make-up brought out all their best features.

I cannot say enough about magnificentbrides but I will say my day would not have been the same without them.

Jen and Tina were fantastic! They worked quickly but made everyone feel papered and elegant. My mom was nervous about having her makeup done, but Jen made her feel gorgeous. We had a super-fun girls only morning before my wedding that helped everyone relax and enjoy the rest of the day. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup- mostly hair, because Jen was so good nobody knew I was wearing makeup. Tina did a great job- every girl looked different, but each of us looked fantastic. Aside from being great at what they do, Jen and Tina are friendly, really nice people and will make your day a little extra-special. I would recommend them to anyone.

I an not say enough about Magnificentbrides! Tina was FABULOUS!! Tina was fun to work with but also very professional. Working with her was a dream and so convenient. Tina arrived at the hotel right on time. We never had to worry about going to a salon or getting caught in bad weather.

At first, my daughter, the bride, was very uncertain about an updo. Tina did a "practice" abut two weeks before the wedding and my daughter was sold! Without exception, everyone was pleased with their hair on the day of the wedding. Tina did a wide variety of styles in a very short time. She even managed to add the groom's mother at the very last minute!

I can not thank her enough for making my daughter's wedding day so perfect!

My wedding day started out with being pampered by Tina and Jennifer, whom I was so pleased in working with.
The professionalism, experience and personality of this beauty team, made me look like a movie star the entire day of my wedding. The many compliments I received from my guests was testimony of what a great job they did. Not to mention my husband (till this day) telling me how beautiful I looked. I felt very comfortable working with both of them to achieve the look I was striving after. They both have the flexibility, skill and passion to allow anyone to create the look they desire for their special day. Jennifer's magic touch accentuated my eyes, creating a dramatic look using lashes, without looking unnatural, which I loved. Tina's expertise gave body to my long flat hair into long lasting beautiful curls. Tina did a marvelous job at making my hair look beautiful without it feeling too heavy, which I appreciated. I can confidentaly say that I look back at my wedding pictures with a smile.

Tina was a wonderful professional throughout the whole process. I actually have made her my permanent hairstylist because of the wonderful job that she did. She was able to accomodate any and all the hairstyles that my bridesmaids requested. My hair looked wonderful the whole time; there was no need for any retouching or fixing of the hair at any moment. This is remarkable because it was raining that day and my hair frizzes something awful in the rain. Tina became another one of the girls in the hotel that day because she fit in so perfectly with everyone there. I can't thank her enough for how wonderful everyone looked that day.

Tina did my hair as well as my entire bridal party on my wedding day. She has such an incredible talent that just by looking at someone she knows just the right style for that person. I have gone to her for years and she had done my hair for a number of weddings that I was in before my own and each time she did it I felt beautiful. Looking back on my pictures and my video from my wedding it makes me want to do it all over again because of what a perfect job she did. She is highly recommended!

Tina is amazing! She is reliable, professional, and flexible - she listens to what your wants and needs are. I had her do our hair for my friends wedding which I stood up in. The morning of a wedding is always hectic, especially when you add 2 little flower girls into the mix, but she had this calming effect on us. We had a great time working with her, and will definitely call her for future events that we may have. One of my daughters (the flower girls) said she made us look like princesses. I loved my "up-do" which I never have done before because my hair was so thick and heavy that a pony tail would give me a headache. But she had the perfect style for me - which held the whole day - with no headaches! And the complements we received! all night! Tina did a great job!
Thanks Tina!

Tina provided outstanding and professional service. She was able to accommodate my request to come to my home the morning of my wedding. Tina's enthusiastic nature and upbeat personality were exactly what I needed to start off my wedding day and tame my nerves. Her passion for her work is obvious through her amazing bridal creations and technical skills. I have naturally curly hair and my biggest concern was whether or not my curls would hold up all day or fall victim to a severe case of the frizzies. It was perfect. Tina styled my hair so perfectly that it held its place the entire day right until the end of our celebrations well into the late evening. My bridesmaids looked stunning as well. Everyone in my wedding party was thrilled with the results. No bride should go without Tina's services for such an important and monumental occasion. If you're planning a wedding book Tina's services before anything else. The rest will follow!!!
