On the most important day of your life, our goal is to make sure that your day is as stress-free and enjoyable as possible in your process of becoming a more beautiful you. We want to make sure that on the day of your wedding, as a million and one things race through your mind, you can relax knowing that no matter what happens, you look gorgeous in pictures and in person. And that everything else - the decorations, the flowers, the cake, the gown - pales in comparison to your radiance. And that is priceless.

MG Hair and Makeup did my hair and makeup for my big day, as well as my maid of honor's. The stylist they sent us - Debra - was fantastic. For both the trial and the day-of at the wedding hotel, she was prompt, sweet, and very responsive to feedback. I got multiple compliments on how beautiful my hair looked and how natural my make up was on the big day. Also, the day-of there was a momentary mix up (we had requested an updo for my friend but she really wanted a blowout) and Debra rushed out to buy the brush she needed for gen new look and seamlessly finished on time. Highly recommend it- and great price!

Working with MG Hair & Makeup was a true pleasure. From the moment I contacted them through my wedding day, they were beyond helpful and accommodating. Denise, the Assistant to the Director, responded to all of my emails quickly and was very helpful throughout the entire process. She helped me set up my trial, coordinated everything for my wedding day, and put together a day of hair and makeup schedule for my bridal party. The three makeup artists, Ashley, Nikolette, and Stephanie, did an incredible job with my bridal party’s hair and makeup. I really appreciated how professional and easy they all were to work with. Ashley, in particular, was so lovely to work with. She did my hair and makeup for the wedding day and it was absolutely perfect. Thanks for making my wedding so special, MG Hair & Makeup! I will be recommending you to all of my friends when they get married.

MG Hair & Makeup is amazing! Cinthya did my bridal hair and makeup better than I hoped it would be. It's so natural looking but my skin was flawless, eyes popped, and my hair stayed in place throughout the entire nice in the August heatwave and a night of dancing! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them for your wedding. You won't regret it and totally worth the price! So happy I went with them for my big day!!

I found MG Hair & Makeup after my first wedding hair and makeup trial with another vendor went terribly. I am so happy that I did!

My artist was Cinthya, who was so nice and so very talented. I had a trial with her first and she came right to my apartment, which was very convenient. She created the look I asked for and it looked amazing. I did end up changing my mind about the makeup look after the trial and wanted something a bit different, so I was a little worried how it would look on the day of the wedding as I wasn’t doing another trial.
On the day of the wedding, Cinthya was early and ready to set up. She first did hair for my two maids of honor and then did my look. As amazing as I thought my trial look was, my wedding look was about 1000 times better. I didn’t think that was even possible.

It was one of the hottest days of the year, reaching almost 100 that day, I was so worried about my makeup holding up and my hair staying put. Our first dance was also a fast swing dance, where my husband had to flip me upside down, so I really needed my hair to hold through all of this and it did! Cinthya made sure to do my makeup in a way that would not only hold up through the heat but also make me look fresh and glowy, without looking sweaty. Even when I thought I was sweating, my face didn’t show it. I also normally don’t wear much makeup so I really didn’t want the cakey look a lot of brides have, and Cinthya made sure to make it look natural and still look amazing in photos.
My hair never lost it’s volume or shape, and didn’t even look like it had much hairspray in it, it looked so natural and pretty. She did an amazing job! Thank you Cinthya!

Talia was so amazing- I could not have asked for a better hair and makeup stylist! She made my whole bridal party feel absolutely beautiful after getting their hair done. My mother-in-law was especially happy! When I looked in the mirror after my appointment, I looked exactly how I had always envisioned myself on my wedding day! She was extremely efficient and we actually finished all of the appointments early. She was also very friendly and easy to talk to. She's the best!

After 3 hair and makeup trials that didn't hit the mark, I started to think that I didn't know what I wanted and that no one would be able to deliver the wedding look I had envisioned for myself. Then I came across MG Hair and Makeup and it was the best thing that could have happened. I had my trial with Ashley and knew right away that I wanted to hire her for the wedding. She did exactly what I wanted - she made me look like a better, more enhanced version of myself, but still natural enough that I looked like me. She's also an absolute master when it comes to eyelash application, which really made a huge difference. She's equally talented when it comes to hair and really gave me the soft, romantic updo I was looking for. The day of the wedding came, and I didn't think it was possible, but Ashley did an even better job than at the trial. She really knocked it out of the park. My hair and makeup were absolutely perfect and they both held up into the next day - even in the July heat! Since we had 9 people getting services, I also had another artist, Alicia, onsite, and she was amazing as well. I was so impressed with the bridal party's hair and makeup, especially since Alicia and Ashley were working off of photos and inspirations they just received that day. They took direction so well and really listened to what people wanted. Everyone looked beautiful and I'm convinced all of the photos turned out so well because everyone really loved their hair and makeup and felt amazing. What more could a bride ask for!

MG Hair and Make up were super helpful for my crazy short term booking. Denise communicated very well with me and I just loved how she accommodated all my requests.
Ashley was beyond awesome and she did my trial in under 2 hours. She just got what I wanted and she was so nice! I enjoyed it so much. She is very patient! My moms make up and hairstyle stayed fresh till the late evening, which is much more than what I even expected! Ashley is MUCH recommended!
