I used Mario Tricoci in Schaumburg and couldn't have had a better experience. From setting up the group appointment to walking out of the salon ready to walk down the aisle it was flawless. Since we came as a group, MT included bagels, juice, water, and coffee for us, which was a nice treat for a busy group of gals.

For my services I used:
(week prior) Cut-- Nathalie
(week prior) Color-- Khrystle
(week prior trial, plus day-of service) Makeup- Madison
(week prior trial, plus day-of service) Updo- Bryn

I have been seeing Nathalie for over 15 years and she is fantastic. Each cut better than the last. And the same goes for Khrystle with color. I have only used her for a few years but it's always flawless.

Madison did my makeup and did an amazing job. I looked so natural. I got a few individual false lashes and they looked completely natural, not to mention they stayed on ALL day and came off with ease once we got to our hotel at the end of the night. I didn't feel like I was being "pushed" to buy makeup product (although earlier in the week I had a facial and when they touched me up to send me home, I did at that point feel pushed to buy makeup. But it wasn't by Madison.). The makeup colors were perfect for my skin tone, and my pictures came out great. There's one where you can see my big luscious lashes and I LOVE it!

Bryn did my updo. I had never seen Bryn before (the reason I didn't use Nathalie is that she doesn't specialize in bridal updos) but was recommended to her by several of the MT staff. Besides the fact that she was sweet and personable, she did a great job. I had an idea of what I wanted but we worked together and found a better style. I had an organza birdcage-style blusher veil, and not all hairstyles work with these veils. Bryn found the perfect updo to compliment both the down-the aisle style as well as the reception style for the veil. I got many compliments on my hair.

Also, the week prior I was feeling really stuffy so I got a facial and opted for a chemical peel and collagen treatment just for the heck of it. I can not say enough how awesome it was. I didn't wear makeup for the entire week and I was getting stopped by random people in stores about how radiant my skin looked. I have NEVER before received so many compliments on my skin. It was totally worth the ~$200. Totally, completely, no questions asked!

In short, I would definitely recommend MT in Schaumburg. Go in and interview the techs so you can find ones you enjoy spending time with and who you think "get you;" you will certainly find someone who meets your needs, and you won't worry on the day of your wedding. MT never fails to deliver great service.

I used Mario Tricoci in Schaumburg!!! This was my very first time getting my make up professionally done. I went for a trial and for the day of. The lady who did my make up was GREAT. She was very sweet and she was known for the "natural look". The only down fall is that she did push the make up products and she didn't listen 100% to what I wanted.. HOWEVER, she still took in what I told her, just made it more natural, and I'm telling you, I'm glad I let her. I loved my make up! I felt naturally pretty :) And having fake eyelashes on for the big day was sooooo natural looking! And they didn't bother me at all, which is something that concerned me! And they came off with just warm water.. No tugging, nothing! :) Easy peasy! And I still use the wedding make up that I purchased to this day. I love it!

Mario in Naperville is Number one!!! These stylists and makeup artists went out of their way to make me and my bridesmaids feel like celebrities!! They did exactly what we wanted and were patient and kind. Their products are top of the line. You can bring in food and drink (no alcohol) into the spa and have a light breakfast inbetween appointments. Karli and Brandi and Dina are the best!!!

I went to the Mario Tricoci in Oak Brook and was so happy I chose to have my wedding hair and makeup done there. Mandy did my hair and she did a wonderful job! She listens to you and does what you want and can actually make it look like a picture you show her. Penny did my makeup and was amazing! She made me look gorgeous and glamourous, but not like I had a face of pancake makeup. I was the biggest skeptic about having my hair and makeup done by others but I was so glad I chose to do this and do it here. I was very happy with their work and didn't even need touch ups!

I had a great experience with the Mario Tricoci salon in Naperville. My makeup artist, Karli, in particular was fabulous. She was fun, provided exceptional customer service (including giving me a complimentary makeup session for my rehearsal), and did a great job. We had a minor mishap when the salon called me 2 days before my wedding to tell me that the lady who did my trial had quit, and so they offered me a choice of either going in for a second trial the next day with someone new, or just to get my hair comped the day of the wedding. Since I didn't want anything too intricate done, I opted to have my hair comped, so I got free hair, which I thought was great customer service. The lady who did my hair did a good job as well, as did the ladies who did my manicure/pedicure. Everyone was friendly and helpful - they even arranged a private backroom for my bridesmaids and I to eat a little something between hair and makeup.

Mario Tricoci although very costly was recommended to me by several of my friends who have used their services for hair and make up for their weddings. This is one area I really splurged on and did not regret that decision. I loved the way my hair and makeup came out and my husband was just in awe when he saw me. He couldn't believe what they did to my hair on my wedding day and said he wished I could wear it like that all the time. Ha, if only I could have married a millionaire. Several other people raved about the way my hair looked as well. If there is one area to spend big bucks on, this is it. The whole day is really about the Bride and how she looks and when the music begins, the groom doesn't become the center of attention and walk down the aisle for all eyes to look at, the bride does so to me, this was a very important part of my wedding planning.

Lisa did my hair for my wedding (and she does my hair whenever I need a special hairdo) and she did a fabulous job. I could not have been happier. She's the best.
However, I would not recommend the make up being done at Mario's. They constantly try to get you to buy their products and the girl that I did my trial with could not put the eyelashes on! I had to go out that night for my birthday and the lashes kept falling off. Plus, she did a terrible job with the whole make up thing from start to finish. She also told me that she could tell I had "bad acne" as a teen, which is not true and she wanted me to buy this lotion for $70 to "erase the scars". There was a girl next to me getting her makeup done for Homecoming and when the make up tech walked away, she looked at me and said "don't even think of buying that stuff because you have NO scars on your face!!". I was not at all happy with the make up service.
For hair, Lisa is the absolute best.

I had my hair colored, highlighted and cut. The color and highlights looked great, but faded really fast for the amount of money I spent. The person who cut the hair barely spoke to me about what I wanted and seemed like he was rushing me out of there. My hair turned out fine but I did not appreciate the attitude. Also, the cost was exorbitant.

I had all of my bridal party (including the moms) go to get their hair and make-up done there. They did a great job working with the different skin tones and hair types/preferences of the members of my party. Both my hair styles and make-up artist really listened to my feed-back from our trial session and so i got exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. They were very good about working with me to schedule 7 hair and make up appointments (which took several email to get right, since I kept pushing back the start time) and get us out the door (almost) on time (we were about 20min later than anticipated). The only unfortunate thing was that the groom's mom (now my mother in law) got sick the morning of the wedding and couldn't make it to her appointment. MT still charged us for the appointment (as is their policy for <24hrs notice)... They definitely would have gotten a bigger tip if they'd just let that appointment slide (esp given that there were 6 other women there all getting their hair and make-up done). As far as price goes, it was a lot cheaper than having someone come to our hotel to do our hair/make-up there and it took a lot less total time too. It's not a cheep salon, but for the down-town Chicago area I couldn't find anything better (and it was literally right across the street from my hotel!).

I visited the Oak Brook location! The hair trial was ok and I liked. On wedding day, I thought she scheduled me for more than 1 hr, which was actually 1 hr and she was rushing to get done by pulling my hair and having really bad attitude. The curls didn't last all the way until the evening, which was disappointing! The salon was also very hot with few fans running since their AC was broke for a while! I think the work by MT is over-rated and over priced for what they offer.

Okay- so we all know how the deal is with Mario Tricoci- you pay for your bridal makeup trial- and then your wedding day is free.


So this Mario tricoci location was about 5 mins from my wedding banquet hall. I had gone for a trial with the bridal makeup specialist (Linda), who apparently was wonderful. And at the trial she had done a good job. I did the trial 3 months before my wedding date.

So the day of my wedding arrives- and I arrive to have my makeup done at 7:00 AM. Linda starts to do my makeup and as she spends 30 mins on it- she asks me which color I want to wear. ..so I am thinking WTF (mind my language), but I was shocked to know that she had lost the paper where she had written down all of my wedding information! like what foundation color, the color of the eyeliner, the blush, lipstick color. LINDA (who is an old lady) lost the paper which had all of my information on what she had done to my face on the day of the trial.

SHOCKED- i started to freak out..she did this makeup that looked nothing like what she did on the trial day.. my complexion looked so dark, at least 3 shades darker than my natural skin. I had a weird color of lipstick- which did not match my face at all.
THIs was not a good experience for my wedding- since you only have one. I would not recommend getting your makeup done from Linda- she claims to be an expert and professional- but there is nothing professional about losing the paper which has all the information about what colors were used at the trial.

dO NOt get makeup done from Linda.

Tricoci did a nice job with my hair. They followed the picture and ideas I had, while making it very unique. I was a little nervous thoughout the styling, but they were confident and ultimately it came out great.

Since I work in Oak Brook, the "Mario" facility closest to me is right here at the mall. I met with "Charlie" (it's not her real name--employees are not allowed to have the same first name) and immediately liked her. She no longer works at the Oak Brook facility, so I now see Penny anytime I have to go there (she's great too).

Charlie did an incredible job on my makeup, using colors that were more natural but definitely accented my face well. She agreed to travel to my wedding site to do my makeup, as well as 2 other bridesmaids. While I know it's expensive to have your makeup professionally done, it's worth every penny when you see how fabulous your wedding pictures turn out!

When I had to change my time to accomodate pictures, they gave me a totally inexperienced makeup artist who was terrible. The colors didn't suit me at all, and she couldn't even put the eyeliner on straight! I was almost in tears, except I didn't want to track up the thick feeling foundation she had put on!

I took all my bridesmaids here to get hair and makeup done.
I was very happy with the end results but was a little unhappy with how long it took.
We were supposed to have everyone done all at once since we were there at 8am and had reservations weeks ahead of time.
But somehow that got messed up. But everyone was done by the time my hair and makeup was done, so that worked out fine.

The stylists were great as far as achieving an individual style for each girl.
