Dorothy did such an amazing job on myself and my wedding party. She has an amazing vision with hair, but still listens to what you want and is super flexible. I am usually hypercritical of myself, but I can honestly say that I looked amazing on my wedding day. Dorothy is very talented and also a lot of fun. I highly recommend pretty bird bridal.

Dorothy was absolutely wonderful to work with. I literally booked her a week before my wedding and she was more than accomodating. My hair and makeup turned out exactly the way I wanted it to. I could not imagine a better experience!

Dorothy was fantastic. She managed to get all of my bridesmaids, me and my mother all ready for a 12:30 wedding and we all looked fantastic. She arrived on time and was more than professional in handling the lighting and space constraints in my home. She was a pleasure to have and I couldn't not have been happier with the services we received.

From the beginning, Dorothy has been professional, personable and responsive. I was so impressed by her work and her personality when we met at the trial, that I couldn't wait to work with her on my wedding day (one piece of advice: bring a GPS or triple check your directions when you go to her house for the trial... I got super lost). The day I actually got married, it POURED (literally the most rain in the NYC area in decades), but Dorothy arrived right on time. Importantly, my hair lasted ALL day and didn't frizz at all (even though my hair ALWAYS gets frizzy in the rain). My makeup looked amazing, and I felt beautiful all day. Dorothy also did hair and makeup for my mother and hair for one of my bridesmaids. Dorothy did great work on everyone, and she is such an absolute pleasure to work with! I HIGHLY recommend her!!!

Dorothy and her assistant did a wonderful job on hair and makeup for my maid of honor, bridesmaid, mom and I. We were all very happy with the results! I really wanted to wear my hair down in loose waves but on the big day it was 95 degrees out even though it was May! I was very worried my hair would turn into a big frizzy mess but Dorothy assured me that if she didn't put in product it would last. Amazingly, it did! I am so happy I trusted her and went with my original plan. She also showed my bridesmaids several easy up-do's just incase I decided to change my hair later in the day. For my makeup Dorothy listened to my ideas and created exactly what I had envisioned. My mom was also very worried about having her hair and makeup done since she had had bad experiences with other stylist in the past but Dorothy did a fantastic job. Again, she really listened to what my mom wanted (which was just a better version of how she normal does her hair) instead of pushing some elaborate up-do. Dorothy's assistant worked on my bridal party and they were both very happy as well! Again, all of our hair and makeup lasted for the entire day with 95 degree weather and lots of dancing!

Dorothy and her lovely assistant did the hair and makeup for me, my mom, and my 5 bridesmaids on my wedding day and I could not have been more pleased with her! Dorothy has such a calm and reassuring way about her, she made all of us feel so relaxed on the morning of the wedding-- no easy feat! She did a fabulous job on both hair and makeup; we all looked naturally pretty and not overly done-up, which was a fear of mine. After Dorothy did my makeup, I still looked like myself, just better than usual, which is exactly how I wanted to look! She did an excellent job with my hair as well, taking the photos I sent her and giving me a hairstyle that looked like the photos but also fit with my hair. I can't recommend Dorothy more highly!

I loved my hair and makeup done by Dorothy for my wedding. She traveled to my B&B to do my services and she showed up right on time- actually a little early so that she could be set up already when it was time to start. She was very receptive/flexible to feedback. On my wedding day, I told her that I wanted a different hair style than was done in my trial because I'd changed my mind and wanted my hair down. Once she did my hair down, I initially did not like the style of the curls and she took it very easily in stride and re-did the curls until I was happy with them- she was a very relaxing presence and never made me feel like I was being difficult even though I was anxious about the day, and asking for things to be re-done. She did the hair for each of my bridesmaids as well and each of their styles was lovely.
I should note that I am very picky about my makeup because I almost never wear makeup, and during my trial she convinced me that I might want heavier makeup than I would choose for myself since there would be pictures, etc. and she was 100% right. On my wedding day, I thought my makeup looked beautiful.
I did end up paying more than I'd initially expected to spend on hair and makeup which is why value is only 4 stars- I was surprised at the total for bridal hair/makeup when I first heard it. But, I know that in the wedding business things are often pricey and I have absolutely no complaints about the service I got. Looking back, I would still have chosen her for my hair/makeup because of how great it turned out and how pleasant she was to work with.

Dorothy was great! She spent a whole afternoon with me for a trial to show me all the options as I had trouble deciding how I wanted my hair to look. She responded quickly to my emails and answered all of my questions quickly and did hair and makeup for me and 3 other women on site for no extra charge. My sister and I wish we could have Dorothy doing our hair and makeup every day because we were so happy with the way we looked for my wedding! I would definately recommend her to anyone looking fora reliable, reasonably priced, professional hair/makeup artist.

I have never written a negative review in my life- but I was so upset by Dorothy's work for my wedding. I want to let other brides know so that they do not make the same mistake! First, I should say that the makeup Dorothy did for my wedding was fine. However, please avoid her for hair at all costs! I wanted to most simple hairdo for my wedding- quite literally a blowout with some curl. For the life of me, I cannot understand how it would be possible to ruin this. But the result was AWFUL- my hair was so greasy from her products that all of the curls fell out and it was just a stringy mess. I spent so so many months planning my wedding- hoping that it would be the perfect day. And of course, in all of the important ways it was But I also spent a tremendous amount of time, money and effort to look great in front of my friends and family, and in the wedding photos that would last a lifetime. I worked out religiously, got a beautiful dress, a very expensive photographer- only to literally cringe every time I see a photo from my wedding because my hair looks disgusting. Like I just came from working out, or woke up- NOT like I was going to my wedding. Please- don't let something so small ruin your photos and the memories of your day- choose a different vendor!!!! And lastly, I reached out to Dorothy after the wedding to tell her that I was disappointed with her work- I thought it was only fair since I knew that I would be posting a review on these sites, and also because I wasn't sure if she thought it was good work when it wasn't. And her response? She also thought it was terrible! I could NOT believe her. As soon as she finished styling my hair and I was unhappy, instead of trying to fix my hair- she left as fast as she could. This is the most unprofessional thing imaginable- if your work is bad- and you know it- how could you leave a bride standing there on her wedding day? My only hope is to prevent another bride from going through the same thing.

Katey, first off I would like to say again how truly sorry I am that you were unhappy. That’s never something I ever want to have happen to my bride on the most important day of her life. I pride myself in the quality of service that I bring to my brides and their party. I love knowing that my part in it can really make a difference from a style that’s just OK to a magnificent looking bride. That’s why the trial is sooo important! This, I emphasized from the very first time I responded to you via email. I have a whole paragraph on the importance of the trial. If you recall I tried several times to set up a trial appointment for you before the wedding, but you were simply unavailable due to your location, and travelling problems. You felt there was no need because of the simplicity of your style. After several phone conversations you convinced me to work without a trial. I regret that decision! Beyond that, when I left you were happy, there was certainly no rushing on my part…I would have stayed all day to get it right for you. You said you were happy…? Although I did admit I wasn’t really happy with the way your hair came out, I NEVER said it was disgusting. [I have the email correspondence to prove that, if any of the brides reading this review would like to see the exact email response. Also I have a picture I took of you after I finished. Both hair and makeup looked simply beautiful. It was exactly what you wanted], and truthfully sometimes it just a matter of style choice. Not every bride will love all my choices, and I won’t love all of hers, that’s another reason the trial is important…communication. Again all I can say is that I’m sorry you were unhappy. However, in order to defend my work, I’ll ask any bride reading this, please let my other reviews, and pictures speak for themselves. Posted on facebook, the knot, and Prettybirdbridal.com. Also if anyone reading this would like to see the photo i took of Katey right before I left, I'll be more than happy to send it to you.
