Hiring Tricia was by far the BIGGEST MISTAKE I made while wedding planning. I live in CA and had to fly to CT in order to fit in my hair trial, fitting, shower, etc. I had a very set schedule. Tricia called me at 7:30AM the morning of my trial with a crisis. Fine, things happen, reschedule for next week (my last weekend in CT).

I rearranged a lot to accommodate this change. Then…at exactly 7:30AM again, Tricia called saying there was a power outage and she wasn’t sure when it would be back. Being that she was planning on doing the trial from her house, she had to cancel. Finding this odd, we did a little research and found out that this was a lie. She then tried to tell me I didn’t need a trial and that I would have “plenty of time” the day of the wedding, which any bride knows is delusional. It seems to me that she doesn’t want to do trials because she’s afraid people won’t book with her. I went back to the review boards and feel as if there are some very accurate BAD reviews of her speckled amongst a lot of what seem like made up “good” reviews.

She required a $300 deposit up front (for 7 people), which I’ve since learned is not typical before a trial is even done. I called to cancel her services and requested my $300 deposit back. She promised she’d put the check in the mail. I got back to CA, no check. It’s now almost 3 months later, and she’s STILL giving me a pile of excuses and lies. I have record of over ELEVEN different excuses she gave me as to why the check, PayPal, or FedEx all fell through. I never received the refund.

I now realize she’s been trying to keep the money over my head to prevent me from writing this review. She even told me that if I accept my refund, I cannot write reviews or I will be “hearing from her lawyer.” If that doesn’t tell you how bad of a businessperson she is I don’t know what will. I cannot express how much aggravation and stress this woman has caused me. I would NEVER TRUST HER ON MY WEDDING DAY.

I'm surprised to see positive reviews here of Tricia, if I could give her zero stars I would. If you care at all about having someone who works professionally do your wedding then Tricia isn't the person to hire.

I had a trial with Tricia and she did a fine job, I didn't love it but it was fine for the price. I signed a contract with Tricia and paid for the trial and a deposit. She promised she would email me a copy of the contract and receipt by the next day (a Sunday).

I had two wedding trials with other vendors and i just wasn't happy. I called Pretty Up to schedule a trial and the day of my trial was amazing. I didn't really think about false eyelashes and I agreed to try them and I absolutely loved them! What a difference they made! Airbrush makeup was beyond flawless I never thought I would of looked that glamorous the day of my wedding I felt like a fairy princess. We had a very tight timeline day of wedding and Tricia had us all done in plenty of time! She was pleasant and friendly and really cared about the girls thoughts on what they wanted for makeup. It was a one of a kind wedding day!

The only reason I rated a 1 star is because zero is not an option. The other reviewers must be pretty up themselves or friends and relatives. Awful service. There is no way this company is licensed cosmetologist. They sign a contract and take your money Always ask for proof of credentials especially when paying good money. They were not very courteous nor did I look or my bridal party look anything less than clowns. My wedding was ruined. I could cry. These other reviews must bs related to pretty up. NOT recommended. At all

Pretty Up did the makeup for ten if us for my wedding three weeks ago and it was fabulous as usual.....Tricia did the makeup for both my sister's weddings over the last two years as well and is doing my cousins next month....She gave two of my bridesmaids a mini facial morning of wedding cause they had very dry skin....Their skin was like silk after. My makeup was flawless everything I wanted.....Tricia is professional, dependable and a lot of fun. I cannot wait to have my make-up done again.

What a great vendor! My trial appointment was fabulous! Tricia made me look stunning. The day of the wedding I had three relatives who wanted hair and makeup not planned and it wasn't a problem.. Each one of my girls looked off the "red carpet"! The few photos I seen so far I cant even believe that was me! Gorgeous! I would highly recommend Pretty Up for any wedding or event!
Fun, Professional and dependable!

I always dreamed of looking perfect on my wedding day and Pretty Up! made my wish come true! My hair is extremely frizzy and doesn't like to hold a curl, but my girls lasted until 2am from 12 noon without a single curl out of place...My makeup - I never wear makeup but I wanted a smokey eye - My eyes popped right out. I loved the look that Pretty Up created for me and my attendants for my wedding! I give them a Perfect 10 on service all around! Easy to talk with, understood what we wanted, professional, fun and talented!
