AHHH Where do I even begin?!?! I am SO happy that I found Tara and her team on WeddingWire :) I had Tara and her team do my hair and make-up for my wedding PLUS 6 bridesmaids hair and 1 bridesmaid make-up for my August 2nd wedding. They did a phenomenal job and all of my bridesmaids were so happy with their hair. I am absolutely impressed with the quality of work Tara and her team provided for my wedding day - and the best part about hiring Makeovers On Call is that they come to you! I highly recommend using Makeovers On Call for your wedding day - if you want pictures of my bridesmaids and my hair/makeup I would be HAPPY to send them along to you.

Tara provided outstanding service to me and five bride ladies at my DC wedding in May. Her assistant did a phenomenal job applying MAC makeup to the ladies.

Initially I made the mistake of hiring a stylist I had found on Craigslist. I did the trial run, put down my deposit, and just a month before the wedding date, she cancelled. And never returned the deposit. So I learned my lesson and went to weddingwire to find a well-reviewed business. I cast out a number of emails and phone calls to try and quickly find a stylist. I couldn’t believe how many of the wedding hair companies were vague and confusing about their prices. A lot of them would only provide a range of prices saying that if the hair was long there could be an up charge. When I found Tara, she was up front with all of the charges. She responded very fast to my emails. After dealing with so many flaky wedding businesses, I really appreciated Tara’s reliability and honesty.

For the hair and makeup, both were beautiful. I had hair extensions and Tara applied them so well that they stayed in place all day and night. Having never used MAC products before, I was worried about my skin having a reaction so I brought my own makeup and was really happy with Tara’s artistry. Oh and for those with sensitive skin, I did not have any bad reactions to the MAC products. The Makeovers on Call team did different hair and makeup looks for each bride lady and they all looked stunning. If you are looking for hair or makeup for your wedding in the DC area, I highly recommend hiring Makeovers on Call!

WOW. Makeovers on call was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so glad I went with their services for hair and makeup. My trials were amazing. On the day of, the team arrived on time and stuck to the schedule, even finishing before time was up with adding an additional girl for makeup. They were very professional but also chatted with us and helped us have fun. They did touch ups before they left as well. I am so happy I chose them for our hair and makeup.

What an awesome experience working with makeovers on call. I had no idea what I wanted for my day other than to look like myself and look beautiful! I have thin hair but they made my hair looked like I had more hair than I have. They recommended clip-in extensions and I was so happy with the result. The good thing about my clip-in extensions is that I can still use them after the wedding. One of my bridesmaids is also getting married and she was so happy with her hair and makeup that she wants to use them for her wedding. I highly recommend them! I was so happy with my hair and makeup. They were on-time, super professional and efficient! I enjoyed the experience.

Tara and her assistants were absolutely wonderful! They did my hair as well as 3 bridesmaids and my mom. They were ready to go at 9am and kept working until about 1pm, making sure that everything was perfect. Tara did my hair and we ended up changing it a bit from what we had done at the trial. She was willing to keep fixing it until it was exactly what I wanted. My hair looked gorgeous and it stayed that way for the whole evening, on a very hot and windy day.

Tara and her assistants were so helpful and sweet. They went above and beyond to make sure that my whole bridal party had a great experience.

The hair and makeup for me and my entire group lasted all night. The wedding was outside and it was a hot day but we still looked great.

My friend recommended Makeovers On Call to us. I was lucky that they were available to provide us with their services. I brought a picture of a hairstyle that I thought it would look nice on me to my trial. My hair looked so much better than the picture and I just loved the way I looked. I had a large group and they sent us four hairstylists/makeup artists. I was so happy with the level of service. They know what they are doing. That’s all I can say.

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and the bride needed a last minute hair/makeup stylist to do the hair and makeup for 3 of her bridesmaids. Tara had done the hair and makeup for everyone at my wedding and all the girls loved the job she did so I recommended her to the bride. Tara was able to accommodate us on short notice and did a fantastic job as always.

What's great about Tara is that she looks at each person's hair and makeup and sees it as a unique project. I can tell that she really enjoys being creative and that makes a difference in the end product. She's also a joy to be around and a great addition to a bride's wedding day team.

I can't go on enough about how easy MOC's stylists and makeup artists were to work with. They came to our hotel and got us ready. They were fully prepared, kept us calm and the most important part...WE ALL LOOKED AMAZING! Hair and make-up were done beautifully, and I still looked fully done up when the wedding was over. MOC was one of the best choices I made for my wedding vendors, and I can't thank them enough for making me feel beautiful on such an important day.

Their customer service is absolutely out of this world. At my trial, I had so much fun and I have never looked this good in my life. I also, learned how to do my own makeup. My hair looked way nicer than the picture that I brought with me and Tara did a wonderful job of replicating that on my wedding day. The girls arrived ahead of schedule on the wedding day and did a great job of accommodating my mom’s and bridesmaids' requests.

If you are on the fence of having someone come do your hair and make-up- stop thinking and just go with MOC (Tara). My girls and I had the most relaxing day of pampering in our Hotel Suite- we didn't have to worry about driving anywhere, getting all the girls together, etc. Tara and her team came and delivered !!

I had 6 bridemaids, 2 moms, 2 jr bridemaids, and a flowergirl get hair and make-up- We all laughed and had so much fun!!! They made the autmosphere so relaxing. PLUS my hair and make-up stayed on ALL NIGHT - even through walking around downtown DC in the humidty and sweltering heat! Everyone's hair and make-up looked flawless! Tara transformed me and my girls into the beauties we are- but brought our inner beauty out for all to see. Everyone looked gorgeous!!!!

I would HIGHLY recommend Tara and her amazing team!

Tara and her assistant did an amazing job on both our hair and make up. It is rare to find someone who does both (and both well). Numerous people commented on and complimented my make up and it has turned out wonderfully in photographs. Tara is aware of what you usually look like or the amount of make up you usually wear, so you feel comfortable with the make up you are wearing. She also though is very aware of what looks the best and what photographs well. She is professional, understanding, knowledgeable, and relaxed. Before the actual event itself Tara was extremely flexible in terms of scheduling the make up trial and understanding of our needs and time. We definitely recommend her!

I loved working with Tara! She and her assistant Becky did a wonderful job on our hair, we all loved it and it lasted all night long! She also did my make-up and that was perfect too. I am still getting compliments on how my hair and make-up looked-2 weeks after the wedding!

I had a trial run the week before, I wasnt sure exactley what I wanted but told her the basics. From there she created the most beautiful hairstyle-exactley what I wanted! She showed up at my friends house early on the morning of the wedding, did hair for 6 girls and make-up for 2 and we still had plenty of time to spare! It was just perfect.

I would definitely reccomend Tara, she was very professional, helpful and so sweet!

Makeovers On Call, were the best. They were on time and very professional but still relaxed. They made my girls feel they could ask them questions about their hair and make up. The hair and make up that was completed was perfect. I as the bride did not have my hair done by them but i did have my make up done and it was perfect. I will say that Tara saw my hair was a little loose and fixed if for me. Overall we loved them and would definitely recommend them and use them in the future.

Tara and Makeovers On Call are the best hair and make-up team that money can buy! They were super easy to deal with, very flexible - especially since I was planning a Maryland from Massachusetts! I had to schedule the trial only a month before the wedding. I was looking for something really specific for hair and makeup and she NAILED it! All my girls and my mother looked absolutely beautiful. We had such a fabulous time getting ready. Whatever you do - BOOK Makeovers On Call!!!!!!

Tara was great and I would and will probably use her again in a couple months for another event. Believe the Feed back she was great! She comes to your location which saves you so much stress and works quickly and the hair and makeup hold all day even though running around and the mist and rain. She did my moms hair and makeup and her hair is kind of thin and it looked amazing. I was also really impressed because in my trial I was just really unsure if I wanted my hair up or down and Tara worked with me until it looked just how I wanted. She was great and I found her off of wedding wire and I was unsure to just pick someone off the web and I have to say she made it so worry free, you should diffidently hire her and save yourself the stress. She was a great pick!

I would recommend makeovers on call without one moment of hesitation! First of all, Tara is truly a professional makeup artist. She knows what she's doing and she does it very very well! She took the time to meet with me for a trial run and she even touched up my highlights a week before the wedding to ensure that my hairstyle would look perfect. Tara also reviewed photos that my bridesmaids emailed to her before the wedding day so that she could get an idea of their coloring and the hair and makeup styles that they liked.

On the day of the wedding Tara came to my house early, setup quickly, and got to work--creating hair and makeup styles for me, 3 bridesmaids, and my mom that we all LOVED. Having Tara come to the house was so much more relaxing than if we had all gone out to a busy salon. And when she was finished, Tara cleaned everything up and left the house in perfect condition (which made my mom happy since she was planning on having guests over after the ceremony).

As for the price, Tara was resonably priced compared to other vendors and honestly, I felt so beautiful on my wedding day (and my bridesmaids and mom did too) that any reservations I had about the expense of a professional stylist completly vanished and the cost was 100 percent worth it!

Finally,our wedding photos are fantastic and I've received compliments from everyone who has viewed them--thanks in no small part to the fact that my hair and make look FLAWLESS. I wish I could have Tara come to my house every morning!

I would recommend Tara and MakeOvers on Call to anyone. My hair and makeup turned out absolutely amazing and looked good all night. She also cut my hair before the wedding and did a great job. She is also very friendly and responds quickly to emails. Everyone is still asking me who did my hair and makeup because it turned out so well and I have never looked so good. I'm so happy that I found her because I don't think anyone else could have done as great of a job as she did.

After I went to get my trial hair and makeup done with Tara at Makeovers on Call, I knew that she would do a great job on my wedding hair and makeup. She spent a few HOURS helping me decide on a hairstyle, getting a feel of what type of makeup I wear, and then actually doing my hair and makeup. I usually don't wear any makeup, so she was able to do my makeup in a way that was elegant and beautiful but not obvious or overkill.

On the wedding day, Tara and her assistant Becky came right on time and did a fantastic job with hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids, and the moms. They were able to do an amazing updo for my mom, who actually has pretty short hair. All of my bridesmaids loved their hairdos and my guests raved about my hair and makeup. They were able to do different things with all different kinds of hair: short, long, curly/wavy, straight, Asian. As I walked down the aisle, I started crying, and throughout the ceremony, tears ran down my face. I was pretty sure that there would be mascara running down my face and that the makeup would be all smudged. But amazingly, my makeup was still perfect afterwards, none of it had smudged at all. I have a lot of hair and Tara did an updo for me, and it stayed up all night without any problems at all. I never had to worry about pinning up any hair that was falling down or retouching my makeup. When there's so much going on, it's one less thing to worry about!

Overall, Tara and Makeovers on Call did a fantastic job. They were very friendly and made everyone feel at ease. They were punctual, flexible, and truly a great service for the cost. The amazing hair and makeup they did made for great wedding photos, and I highly recommend them for brides who want to look gorgeous for their weddings.

Also, my mom decided at the last minute to get her hair and makeup done, and Tara and Becky were able to fit her in with no problem. They were very flexible about it.

Tara did a beautiful job. I could not have asked for anything more. I was worried about my hair holding because it is so thin. Tara reassured me she could make it hold so I was leaving my hair in her hands. And Tara delivered it held all night even after all the dancing and raining. Everyones makeup and hair came out beautiful. I would recommend Tara to anyone looking for a makeup artist or hair stylist.

Tara and her Assistant, Becky, were amazing! Everyone LOVED their hair styles and they lasted all day and evening. She was so flexible too. She allowed me to add my stepdaughter on at the last second and she even volunteered to help my grandma fix her wig (which had been crushed in her travels from PA). She helped everyone feel like a princess and was even able to make my fine hair seem its fullest on my wedding day. I felt like cinderella. She really came through and with time to spare!

I highly recommend Makeovers On Call to any one who is getting married. They are very organize and professional. I was so relaxed and radiant throughout the night. Every one in my group looked beautiful and glamorous. This company has the most talented and experienced hair stylists and makeup artists. Their quality of work and customer service was excellent. Also their prices are very reasonable and affordable.
Why do you go to a salon when you can have the salon come to you?
Your day is too important to choose anyone but Makeovers On Call.

From consultation, to trial run to the Big Day, Tara and her team of magic makers helped make my wedding dreams come true. Tara showed up early and stayed late for the trial run, even though it was on a very busy Saturday. Her team showed up early on the wedding day and all in all, made my life so much easier on what could have been a stressful day! And when I say team, I mean it. She brought a photographer for befores, durings and afters. She brought an additional hair stylist and an additional makeup artist and saved me, the bride, for herself. All of the ladies have worked full time in salons in the DC area for ages. Having them there made the day so much fun, it felt like a beauty salon in the comfort of a home! A bridesmaid, my mother-in-law, grandmother-in-law and myself got dolled up and we all looked GREAT in pictures. These ladies have done weddings before, so they know how to make you and your loved ones look great for the walk down the aisle. They set up and broke down quickly and made sure everything was just as it was when they came. It might cost more than going to the salon, although I didn't even check those prices. It's SO worth it to have the stress taken away and have a professional team come to YOUR doorstep!

I was very pleased with Makeovers on Call. When my hair stylist cancelled on me, Makeovers On Call really saved the day! After I had the trial, I knew it was a blessing that the other hair stylist cancelled because Tara did a much better job! On the big day, Tara and a fellow stylist did my hair and several of my bridesmaids. They used their imagination to create unique and lovely hair styles for each of us. I was nervous because we got our hair done very early in the morning, but everyone's hair looked great all night!! It's pretty cool, my wedding was a few months ago and people still comment on my wedding hair! :)

Tara and her team did a fantastic job taking care of me and my bridal party the day of my wedding. We had hair and make-up done for 6 people in a matter of four hours and every penny we spent was well worth it!! Nothing was sacrificed, everyone looked beautiful that day. I, as the bride, even changed the hairstyle I had done during the trial when they arrived that day and it was a hundred times better than I ever could've imagined. Tara and her team traveled to the hotel where we were staying and I couldn't have asked for any more professionalism from them. Their team of talent is phenomenal. If you have the money in your budget, I say spend some if it on their services!! You won't regret it!!

I got in touch with Tara at Makeovers On Call about 3.5 months before our October wedding. I had a trial with a different hairstylist and was starting to worry that I wouldn't be able to find anyone still available after that one didn't work out. Tara got back to my inquiry email very promptly and called me to follow up on her price quote. At first, I was a little taken aback with just how much it was going to cost (and that is the only area where I felt that I couldn't give a 5-star rating, but I don't think I would give anyone in the greater NOVA area a 5-star rating for value). Tara is very professional, and it is clear that she knows exactly what she's doing when it comes to up-dos and make-up. My hair is very fine and difficult to work with, but she was able to give me the exact hairstyle and make-up look I was going for. The team she brought with her was also fantastic! Tara will bring as many assistants/stylists to help as she will need to get everyone finished up on time and looking amazing. None of my bridesmaids felt rushed, and they all came away feeling very happy with how they looked. I was 100% worry free when it came to make-up and hair on the day of our wedding, and in the end, it was worth the expense. You will not be disappointed if you book with Makeovers On Call.

I loved this company! We originally were going to go to a salon to get our hair done, but having the hair and make-up artists come to us was sooo much easier and less stressful! Tara was very professional and did a great job on my trial hair and make-up. On the day of the wedding, Tara and her co-worker arrived on time and set up in my hotel suite very quickly. Tara took her time and did my hair and make-up perfectly and was able to be flexible about changes that I wanted made from the trial. Her co-worker did my bridesmaids hair and was very patient as the girls were in and out of the room all morning.
This company is very organized and knew exactly what they were doing!!

The owner of MOC is extremely friendly and talented, and pulled together a wonderful team of makeup and hair stylists that did a great job on everyone involved in our wedding. We had a large bridal party and MOC was able to stay on schedule and respond to the direction that each bridesmaid, mother, aunt, and flower girl gave to the stylists for their desired look. They were very responsive to photos of hairstyles and makeup styles that we brought with us for direction and had a great style of their own for those who did not have a preference. I had a trial run for my bridal hair and makeup, and even opted to do a trial for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom. The trials were great and made us feel very comfortable with the stylist. I chose MOC because they use MAC makeup, and because the examples of their work I saw on their website looked fresh and modern. We were not disappointed - I would highly recommend them for hair and makeup for any occasion. The quality was fantastic and the photos from our wedding day reflect how good the stylists are. I felt like I got celebrity-like professional beauty services from MOC and would love the chance to work with them again!

Makeovers on call are absolutely GREAT! They listen to your hair and make-up needs, and know how to work with different types of hair and skin tone to create individualized looks - not the same "prom up-do" that everyone does! They are very professional and fun to work with. I highly recommend Tara and her team for your next dress-up event!

Working with Tara was very easy- we did a trial run through together, discussed options, took pictures for the big day. On the day of, the team arrived a few minutes early, began setting up and got to work. The best news was we ended early which was great for all of us, extra time on the wedding day is always needed. Tara and her team did a great job, kept everyone calm and relaxed and were extremely professional. We all turned out beautiful!

Tara is an absolute sweetheart. She has a great personality and made me feel comfortable and confident in her ability to do exactly what I wanted with my hair and make up.

They did such a wonderful job. They did exactly the hairstyles and the make up that we wanted. All the bridesmaids looked amazing. Eveyone complimented on the make up and hair of everyone including the bride. I was extremely happy with their services. They were fast and efficient and very easy to work with.

Makeovers On Call arrived on time to do hair for my Bridesmaids and my Mother only. Tara and another assistant were professional and kind. They did a wonderful job on 2 of my bridesmaid's hair and had a difficult time with my other 2 bridesmaids. I feel bad for leaving this review because Tara and her team are pleasant to deal with. But in my honest opinion, I feel that the stylists lacks the understanding of modern, effortless beauty. Their strong points are prom-like, tight, curly, up-dos. Weakness: loose, elegant, effortless soft waves.

My Maid of Honor had 2 strands of Amish curls on top of her ears, instead of loose soft flowing pieces. The stylists also did not bring extension cords with them and I had to pay my venue extra money to get extension cords last minute. That made me a little stressful.

It saddens me to have to write a negative review since Tara is so nice, but I had a very large group serviced and NOT ONE of them was happy.
The biggest complaint we have is that Tara and her team had us start make-up and hair at 6 am, finished at 9 am, LEFT, and the ceremony wasn't even until noon. During the planning phase with Tara, I actually negotiated this 6 am time because she originally wanted to start at 5 am. According to the timeline of services she provided me and my bridesmaids, she would be working right up until 11 am. When they were finished by 9, none of us could understand why we all had to be up so early. Three hours later, when the ceremony started, our hair was already falling out and we had sweated all of our makeup off. We were also exhausted from our early rise.
In addition, the quality of hair styling was pretty terrible. You couldn't even really tell that any of us had gotten anything done. I ended up having to put my hair in a ponytail on my wedding day. So sad.
Again, Tara is really sweet, but they were not worth the expense unfortunately. :(
