I was very pleased with my choice in selecting Make Me Fabulous for my wedding day makeup services. Lauren the coordinator was very helpful and responsive throughout the planning process. Susan was the makeup artist and she was great. She was very helpful during the trial in providing different options and choices. I provided some follow up comments and she was great in incorporating those on the day of the wedding. It was the perfect look I was going for, simple and elegant. The makeup lasted all day and night as well. My bridesmaids, mom and other family members were also quite satisfied with the final product. I would recommend Susan, Lauren, and Make Me Fabulous to anyone looking for makeup services.

Lauren (Makeup Maven) & Angela (Hair Extraordinaire) from Make Me Fabulous not only Made Us Fabulous but MADE MY WEDDING MORNING FABULOUS. They were AMAZING to share my day with.

But my unbelievable experience with this salon began before the big day. Lauren, who also serves as Bridal Coordinator was pleasant, professional, and REALLY helpful since I was a first-time wedding planner and wasn't exactly sure what I needed (or wanted). Further, planning from a distance (I live downstate) proved a little challenging for my hair & makeup trial but Lauren made it her business to be accommodating and made sure I had an appointment with time to spare should we need a second - which I definitely didn't! When I walked in the day of my trial, the girls were awesome! They listened to exactly what I wanted and MADE ME FABULOUS! While there, I also had the pleasure of meeting other ladies in the salon. ALL AMAZING! While Lauren and Angela were working with me, I'm sure anyone would have done a similarly stellar job.

On the big day, Lauren & Angela arrived on time, were prepared, and were able to complete my bridal party's hair and makeup to their exact specifications (without prior trials, might I add!) from photos and verbal descriptions. They were super personable and fun to be around. It was really nice having some non-family / friend insight and senses of humor. We needed it! Looking back now, I truly can't imagine having gotten ready without them there. Their skills were unparalleled and they themselves were simply something special.

Ladies - they will make you and your bridal party fabulous but they will also make your entire experience fabulous. I highly recommend them.

After my trial, I knew I hired the "A" team with Make Me Fabulous. Both artists listened to what I wanted and never tried to force something on me I wouldn't like. I don't wear a lot of makeup every day and on my wedding day, I still looked like me, just the best version possible! The color wasn't overwhelming and even then fake eyelashes were very natural! I definitely recommend the airbrush foundation if you don't like that cake-y feeling. For my hair, I had a feeling I wanted it down and after the trial, it was a no-brainer. I had two side braids and my veil sat perfectly in the back. I would recommend the trial - at first, I didn't know if I needed to spend the money, but you are able to experiment with a few looks and it proved to be really helpful for me. Plus, you get to bond with the team who will be all up in your face (literally) on your wedding day!!

Both artists came to my mom's townhouse to get the bridal party ready - they were so easygoing and friendly, even at 7am!! Everyone's hair and makeup came out beautifully - my mom could not stop raving about how they made her up!! I was so impressed with their skills and just overall vibe. I've been in wedding parties where the artists are NOT friendly and it just causes stress. Choose this team and I guarantee you'll be relaxed and constantly smiling after they finish up!

My only issue is that because you're paying a set price for each artist, no matter how many services they do, it gets tricky if you're asking bridesmaids to pay for any of their own hair and makeup. For example, I paid for all my bridal party's hair, but asked them to pay for their own makeup. However, since I was already paying a set price, it was difficult to figure out how much to charge each bridesmaid. I think I ended up paying much more than I thought I would, but again, the quality of the work speaks for itself.

I got married in southern Vermont and was having trouble finding a local hair and makeup artist. Another bride who got married at my venue had used MMF, and luckily they still had my date open. They were worth every penny. They have a dedicated bridal coordinator to work with you and help you plan your timeline for the day. I was so happy with my hair and makeup trial, and on my wedding day it was recreated perfectly. All of my bridesmaids looked drop-dead gorgeous and were happy with their styles. MMF are professional, talented artists and I would recommend them to anyone.

Lauren from Make Me Fabulous is AMAZING! In many ways bridal makeup is one of the most important parts of your wedding, and Lauren was able to work with me and my girls to achieve the perfect looks. She was a pleasure to work with and was very willing to listen to what we wanted and was able to transform our ideas and wishes into reality. I could not say enough things about how great she was and how pleased I am with her service. I have and will continue to recommend to friends and family that they just schedule a trial and they will be convinced

Make Me Fabulous was absolutely wonderful!! Working with Lauren as our coordinator made everything so easy, and we were lucky enough to have her come to my house with her team the day of my wedding! I had the pleasure of having Sue do my makeup and Angela do my hair, and both were incredible! I felt so natural and beautiful because of how these two lovely ladies took care of me! Not only did they do a wonderful job with me, but my whole bridal party (10 bridesmaids and my mom) all had a wonderful experience, too! Every woman looked gorgeous, and the ladies really listened to every persons' needs! I could not have had a better experience with Make Me Fabulous and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to anyone looking for bridal party hair and makeup! They are such a fun bunch, too! If you're looking for laughs, punctual service, artists who are receptive to requests, and incredible hair and makeup artists, you definitely should consider Make Me Fabulous!
