Sara was extremely professional and personable throughout the entire process of my wedding planning. I couldn't have loved my hair or makeup any more. She made sure I liked every little detail and made it perfect. Sara is such an easy person to get along with and her and her time were very much on time and had everyone done on time. My bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup done by the glammies I recommend Sara and her glammies very highly. She made the process totally stress free!

Sara and her Glam Squad were amazing on my wedding day. They came to us, did hair and makeup for 11 people (not including me!) and were prompt, professional and just fantastic at what they do. Three Glammies on an too-warm November day managed to keep their cool even as the room got far too overheated. Sara did my hair and makeup and I could not have been happier with the results. She is extremely talented, fun and kept everything relaxed while I was beginning to stress out just a bit. My makeup looked stunning even at 2am when I got back to the room after all the partying. She had finished me 12 hours earlier! My hair stayed up and in the few pictures I've seen, her handiwork shows through. Worth every penny.

Glammies were just at my best friends wedding and we all looked amazing!! They showed up on time with matching glammie shirts (adorable and professional!!) and gave us the best beauty services. I was the communicator and organizer mostly for my bestie Katie's wedding. The glammies were super easy to communicate with and get everything situated for the day I was even on a text message basis with the owner Sara who was super sweet . I changed the number of services a couple times and they were always super accommodating leading up to the day:) I have booked them for my wedding next year June 14 2014 and cannot wait!!!!!! My makeup looked amazing, I had them do hd creams and airbrush and I absolutely loved it also they do individual lashes which again I loved because they didn't look super fake or plastic like lol.
Thank you again Glammies can't wait for next year everyone was raving about our makeup services!!!

I cannot say enough about Sara Faella and the Glammies! Sara was the very first vendor I booked for my wedding. I am very particular with my makeup and I knew that I needed to have the very best in my wedding day, not just a hairdresser that does makeup on the side. I think I got more compliments on my hair and makeup on my wedding day than the dress itself! She certainly exceeded my expectations in every aspect. From giving me her personal cell phone number to contact her, doing my hair and makeup trial on a Sunday to work with my very busy schedule, and even lacing up the corset on my wedding dress when my bridesmaids struggled to do so! Your wedding photos and/or video are something that will be cherished for a lifetime and having HD makeup applied by a pro really does make a HUGE difference. My photos are amazing and my photographer, who is a friend, said that very little retouching needed to be done. My bridesmaids were also very pleased with their airbrush makeup and updo's done by Brianna, be of the Glammies. If you want to look amazing on your wedding day, book Sara!

I can not put into words the talent & competition for other vendors that Sara & her Glammies bring to the table. I was engaged 20 months before my wedding & she was the first vendor I booked. Between the bridal awards & phenomenal reviews, I knew I NEEDED to book Sara for my wedding. Both her assistant and Sara were always easy to contact and get in touch with, always answered my questions, & when I had a change in the # of services they were always accommodating. I had my hair&make-up trial with Sara which went extremely well. She is so sweet & patient! She knows her stuff and is one of the most professional people in the industry. She wrote down the make-up shades & everything that was used at my trial. Having this trial totally put me at ease for my wedding day. I knew I had nothing to worry about with her! On the day of the wedding, I had an extremely large bridal party where we needed 11 hair-dos & 9 make-ups and eyelashes completed. Sara & 3 of her glammies had everyone done within 2 hours. It was unbelievable!! Everyone looked gorgeous! I hate to say it but even my husband had his make-up done and he looked STUNNING! He had airbrush & HD make-up applied since our wedding video was in HD. It looked natural & he looked perfect! All the groomsmen were saying how they wished they had had the make-up service done too!! And honestly, Sara made me look like a supermodel and movie star with my make-up and hair!! I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked in the mirror!!! It further confirmed that booking her was the best decision I made! If you're a bride and you're reading this I promise you that you will absolutely regret it if you do not book Sara & her Glammies for your wedding day!! If she's not available for your wedding day, I would change your wedding date lol. I have recommended her to everyone & I will continue to do that for every newly engaged girl I meet! Sara we absolutely love you & can't thank you enough!! xoxo Brittany & Steve Paradis

I cannot say enough good things about Sara.

I contacted her with less than two months to go before my wedding and she got to work right away with helping me figure out my hair & makeup trial. I showed her pictures of the hair styles and makeup I wanted and not only was she able to translate them, she made them infinitely better. She was beyond accommodating as I live in AZ and she was in RI. A team traveling for my wedding day was a HUGE concern of mine but she alleviated all worries with her professionalism. She assured me they would deliver and they definitely did.

My hair & makeup the day of the wedding looked even better than the trial. She is a true professional and will not leave until the hair & makeup looks perfect! Sara brought Shayla with her to help. Shayla not only helped with other bridesmaids but also stayed with me after the ceremony for pictures to make sure my hair & makeup looked perfect for the photographers. They both made not only getting ready fun, but also a total breeze and made my day that much more perfect. Everyone in the bridal party loved their hair. I could not have been happier on the day of my wedding. Thank you Sara & Shayla!

Words cannot even express the gratitude I feel toward Sara and her Glammies. From the beginning of the planning process, it was smooth, professional, and a pleasure. I need to mention Erin - Sara's AMAZING asisstant. She answered every small question and corrected any minor detail I e-mailed to her promptly and efficiently. After our trials, my Mom and I had some changes we wanted to make. Erin passed the information along to Sara - along with pictures I attached to the e-mail. My Mom's hair and make-up and my own hair and make-up far surpassed anything I could have possibly imagined. It was such a relief to know that I had NOTHING to worry about. Sara and her Glam Squad girls were so quick, too! We originally had all but one of my girls getting their hair done and three getting make-up done. They got everyone done so quickly, they were able to do everyone's hair AND everyone's make-up (once they saw how nice the make-up appointments were coming out, they wanted to get their own done, too!). At the Glen Manor House, I had Sara stay to do touch ups. I cried during the ceremony, and she had me covered - not to mention ALL of my girls. My husband described her as a "little pixie" running around helping everyone! I just cannot say enough good things....They were sweet, fun, and GLAMOROUS! Thank you to Sara and the Glam Squad girls!

AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!! Sara and her team are extremely talented and made me look like a model on my wedding day. I could literally not stop looking in the mirror after she was done! Not to mention she is extremely sweet and friendly and can do anything and everything that you would want for your wedding day. She was prompt at arriving to my venue and got right to work. Everything was done professionally and in a timely manner. My maid of honor was raving about how Sara's glammie, Nikki made her look. They do the airbrush which looks flawless and fake eyelashes if you want them, but they make them look like they are your real lashes! Sara and her team are up to date on what styles look good and will help you to create one that is just perfect for you. I literally told her what I wanted and showed her a similar picture and she was able to create exactly what I had envisioned for myself. I highly recommend using Sara for your hair and makeup for your big day... you will not be disappointed!

AMAZING!!!! Fair prices, fair travel fee, amazing work! Ariana was the stylist who did my hair & make-up, as well as that of my Mom and my brother's girlfriend (I had no bridesmaids). She was super sweet and uber-helpful, as was all of Sara's Glam Squad. The trial went great - she was able to show me exactly what I thought I wanted, and then helped turn it into exactly what looked best (since the style I thought I liked would not work as well on my short hair).

On my wedding day, Ariana was like an old friend coming to visit. It was so relaxing and easy-going. She made my brother's girlfriend look amazing, and she felt beautiful - she never wears makeup or does her hair, so it was great that Ariana was able to do just enough to make it special without taking away from the natural beauty this girl normally rocks. She's already insisting that when it's her turn to walk down the aisle, she'll need Ariana there!

And having my Mom look and feel her best meant so much to me. Ariana gave her a patch-test when I did my trial with the airbrush makeup to make sure it didn't affect her sensitive skin. My Mom has very short hair and had no idea how she wanted her hair done. Ariana made her absolutely glow, and even covered up the scars on her shoulder from previous battles with skin cancer. I will cherish the photos of me and my Mom.

And of course, my makeup and hair! Ariana made me glow. I have never looked or felt better, and it held up all night long. Thank you to all of Sara’s Glammies!

For someone known to be verbose, I think my difficulty in finding the appropriate words to provide a glowing review for Sara Faella speaks volumes. It is obvious from Sara's portfolios and achievements that she is as talented an artist as anyone could ever hope to work with, yet she still exceeds any expectations a client could have of a vendor.

Though I was not surprised to find that that was the case for my wedding, being beyond pleased with the amazing hair and makeup that have become synonymous with Sara and her Glam Squad, it was the overall experience that stands out most in my mind.

Sara travelled with my friends and family and I to the Bahamas for my destination wedding. During the week, Sara went above and beyond, making sure that all members of the trip looked and felt beautiful, meanwhile becoming an adopted member of our very closely-knit group.

Sara transcends the expected role of makeup artist, ready and willing to help out with any odds and ends that may come up during the event. For instance, one of my favorite images from my wedding is actually of adorable Sara, running down the isle, extra copy of the vows in hand, when my minister was fumbling to find his!

Sara attends everyone who sits in front of her with the attention due to a legendary model, while making each feel like a longtime friend. For hair and makeup worthy of a magazine and an experience to add to the beautiful memories of your special day, there is no other choice besides Sara Faella.

Sara transcends the expected role of makeup artist, ready and willing to help out with any odds and ends that may come up during the event. For instance, one of my favorite images from my wedding is actually of adorable Sara, running down the isle, extra copy of the vows in hand, when my minister was fumbling to find his!

Sara attends everyone who sits in front of her with the attention due to a legendary model, while making each feel like a longtime friend. For hair and makeup worthy of a magazine and an experience to add to the beautiful memories of your special day, there is no other choice besides Sara Faella. Read less

For my wedding on 3-25-12, choosing Sara and her Glam Squad to do hair and makeup for myself and my wedding party was a no brainer. Between the reviews and personal references, I knew I needed to have her. Let me just say that the entire team did an amazing job!! All of the girls were at my mom's house setting up even before I was! They worked like a well-oiled machine, which couldn't have been easy since they had less than 3 hours to do hair AND makeup on myself, my mom, and 7 bridesmaids. They pulled it off with ease (and time to spare), and everyone looked absolutely beautiful by the time the bus came to pick us all up. It was raining on and off that day, and several of us had down-do's that could have easily dropped due to the moisture. Sara even decided to send a girl to the venue to touch everyone up before the ceremony (we did photos before the ceremony). The service, the quality, and the value were unbeatable. I will highly recommend Sara and her Glam Squad for ANYONE looking for quality hair and makeup. Awesome job, ladies!!!

I have known Sara for years and was thrilled to have her as my wedding artist/designer/stylist :) Sara and Glammies, Ariana and Angelina, were absolutely fabulous for my St. Patrick's Day wedding. All three ladies were super professional, and arrived early and ready to work (Sara actually beat me to my cousins house, aka prep station). They were very accommodating to the requests from both myself and all 4 of my bridesmaids. Our hair and makeup were flawless (one of my bridesmaids has actually never had curls last through the night.. until my wedding). Sara also made a couture hair accessory and birdcage veil which really completed my look. All the guests were complimenting us throughout the night about how perfect the hair and makeup turned out.. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day, and I know that Sara played a great role in that. I knew when I got engaged, and after looking at her work and knowing her talents, that she would be in high demand.. so I booked her almost 2 years in advance. Great decision on my part :) Many brides go back and forth, second guess, and after trials rethink their decisions. This was not at all the case for me. Sara and crew definitely delivered for me and my bridal party. We were all extremely satisfied with our services and would (and already have) recommend her to future brides. After my experience with Sara and her Glammies, I can finally say, for the first time ever, that I will go back to her salon(s) for regular haircuts and other services. And I would also rock a Team Sara shirt any day, fo sho. Love you ladies, keep up the great work <3 (PS - Erin was also great to work with in terms of scheduling and completing the contract, very prompt- even when she was days away from delivering her brand new handsome son :). Thank you all so much!!

I am so glad that I booked Sara-- the morning of my wedding was stress-free, since I knew that my hair and makeup were in such talented hands. She did such a wonderful job, and I could not have looked better!

Sara & Glammies were wonderful, so accommodating and fixed everything anyone was un-happy with. It's a very hard job filled with pressure to get things right and Sara & her team knocked it out of the park as far as I'm concerned. They are a group of hard workers with great customer service and that is what really matters to me (besides being amazingly talented). I am a huge fan and will no doubt recommend your salon to all of my brides :)

Sara and her Glam Squad are AMAZING!! She deserves way more than 5 stars!! If she is available on your wedding date BOOK HER NOW!! I don’t know where I should start to discuss how truly amazing she is!! First when I met her for the trial I clicked with her right away. She has a very easy personality and you can be very direct with her about what you like and don’t like etc.. Before I selected her I read through all the reviews from other brides. Almost all of her reviews are positive which is absolutely unheard of in the wedding industry. Some brides can be a little unrealistic on how everything should be “perfect.”

Sara and her Glammies arrived early to set up. Sara brought several people with her including a male to work on any guys that needed him. Sara and the Glam Squad starting working on everyone right away accept me. Unfortunately I got the stomach bug and was up vomiting the entire night before the wedding. I only slept about 2-3 hours and looked like hell and the same thing happened to my Mom. I went and talked to Sara about what to do. She suggested I take a nap with a cold cloth on my face and she would do my hair and makeup as late as possible. Sara and her Glammies finished my 8 bridesmaids, 2 junior bridesmaids, my Mother, Grandmother, and Mother in law all on time. Everyone looked amazing!!

Sara is VERY talented and got my silky no texture hair to stay curled until the next day! My makeup looked fantastic and you couldn’t see any swelling near my eyes (I looked so bad that morning my MIL was crying). More importantly Sara is an amazing person that cares about each person she works on. It is clear this is her LOVE and not just a paycheck. There are very few people that care as much as she does about people. She did not have another wedding booked after mine and stayed late for touch ups during the pictures. There was a snow storm that day and things ran pretty behind schedule. Sara stayed several hours with two Glammies to make sure I looked great after I removed my veil! (It was a slow time of year and she had nothing else booked after). She knew how much it meant to me that I had a great hair day even though I didn’t feel well. Sara: Thank you again for making my wedding day easy and making us all beautiful! I will never forget your kindness! You are truly one in a billion.

I don't even know where to begin with Sara- she is simply amazing! She was helpful, responsive, and SO talented. She did a phenomenal job on my hair and makeup, and even went beyond that. She helped my Mom with her dress, my grandma with her flowers, and even waited for me to get changed to help me put on my veil. Not only is Sara an incredible stylist, she is also a wonderful person. It was a true pleasure to work with her. Ladies, I woulds say book your appointments soon, because Sara Faella is definitely going places!

Oh, Sara Faella. How could you not LOVE Sara Faella? She is beyond awesome. Professional, talented, friendly, creative, caring... all the things you would hope for from a wedding vendor. It's like she's got this stuff in her soul and she was put on this earth to make people feel special and beautiful with her talents. Sara and I hit it off right away and since we seem to have a similar style of GLAM, it was a match made in heaven. She and her team made me and my VIP women feel just gorgeous on my wedding day. She even came back to touch me up after my first wave of photos and ended up saving my dress (a.k.a. life!) when it was catching on my shoes and needed some emergency pinning in the under-skirt. Sara knew exactly what to do and came prepared to save the day. I honestly cannot recommend her enough. She clearly cares about her clients and works her toosh off to make sure each bride and bride entourage goes into a wedding feeling like a million bucks. I highly, highly recommend Sara Faella - don't settle for anything less!

I was SO happy with Sara as my stylist for my wedding day! Not only was my hair and makeup exactly as I had dreamed but Sara as a person was amazing to work with. She truly knows what she is doing and my hair and makeup looked gorgeous but still natural just as I had wanted. My normally very frizzy hair stayed smooth during the humid day and my makeup looked flawless all night. Sara has the perfect personality to work with brides, she really loves what she does and gets excited about all the wedding details. She really is such a sweet person. When she realized I forgot my wedges for my first dance, she let me borrow her Gucci wedges off her own feet!! Who else would do that!? It felt like she was one of my bridesmaids as I got ready! We even jammed out to boy bands on her iphone during hair and makeup :) She stayed much longer than expected to make sure I looked perfect after our first look and before I walked down the aisle. Sarah really was the perfect hair and makeup artist. I am so happy I went with her and would recommend her to anyone!!!!! :)

I was stressing about so many things and after I had a makeup trial at my hair salon and came out looking like a drag queen, I all but gave up hope and said well, guess you are stuck doing your makeup yourself!
My videographer Mike Picard (the best!) recommended sara and even though I was scarred from the first trial, I sucked it up and went for a trial with sara. WOW is all I have to say! I came out of there feeling so relieved!
My bridesmaid Jessica was with me (shes getting married in oct) and as soon as she saw sara do my trial, she booked her for her wedding! Give sara a try, she is super nice and very easy to work with and it was one less thing to worry about on my wedding day! Sara is fab, I loved her and so will you!

I was so thankful that on the biggest day of my life I did not have to be in charge of my makeup! There was only one person/squad that I trusted to do this for me- Sara Faella and her Glam Squad! My makeup was done to the utmost perfection, and the service was unmatchable. I started my day at the hair salon, and because I didn't have enough time to go anywhere else Sara met me right there, hauled in her beautiful and professionally stocked makeup kit and created wonders! I thought I looked good with simple do-it-yourself makeup, but let me tell you, this girl KNOWS how to enhance beauty by 1000X bringing you to superbride status. I am still hearing how beautiful and heavenly I looked on my day. You'd be crazy to go anywhere else. This girl and her business is on the rise, I foresee celeb status not too far down the road.

As a woman of color, it has always been a harrowing experience for me to have my make up done professionally. So after several disastrous make up trials, I was delighted to have met Sara. She completely embraced my Asian features. And with the wave of her brushes, she turned my uneven skin tone into an impeccably even velvety complexion. Sara’s ability to highlight my finer features and downplay the rest is amazing. She creates this flawless universally appealing visage. For me, it was not only her ability to perfectly match my skin tone to the right shade of foundation but her wonderful bubbly personality. Sara never felt like a vendor to me. She was more like my friend and confidant.

On the day of the wedding, she got me dolled up at the crack of dawn (literally very early in the am) and than she came back with her assistant to do touch ups on me and apply air brush make up on my ladies. I was very pleased with my first look - although I would have preferred to have gone with less make up, traditional Cambodian wedding dictated otherwise. I also wish I decided to go more natural like at my trial but this bride was a bit indecisive at the last minute. As for my hair for the Cambodian ceremony – it held up perfectly. Sara is just as talented with a make up brush as she is with a curler. I was also impressed with her glam gal. She worked with my ladies to create a day to evening look that lasted all night. Sara also created the most beautiful floral hair pin for my big day. She designs custom pieces with great detail and tailors the accessories to the bride’s desire.

She completely embraced my Asian features. And with the wave of her brushes, she turned my uneven skin tone into an impeccably even velvety complexion. Sara’s ability to highlight my finer features and downplay the rest is amazing. She creates this flawless universally appealing visage. For me, it was not only her ability to perfectly match my skin tone to the right shade of foundation but her wonderful bubbly personality. Sara never felt like a vendor to me. She was more like my friend and confidant.

On the day of the wedding, she got me dolled up at the crack of dawn (literally very early in the am) and than she came back with her assistant to do touch ups on me and apply air brush make up on my ladies. I was very pleased with my first look - although I would have preferred to have gone with less make up, traditional Cambodian wedding dictated otherwise. I also wish I decided to go more natural like at my trial but this bride was a bit indecisive at the last minute. As for my hair for the Cambodian ceremony – it held up perfectly. Sara is just as talented with a make up brush as she is with a curler. I was also impressed with her glam gal. She worked with my ladies to create a day to evening look that lasted all night. Sara also created the most beautiful floral hair pin for my big day. She designs custom pieces with great detail and tailors the accessories to the bride’s desire. Read less

I am an out-of-state bride and after an extensive google/internet search I found Sara Faella and she designed my accessory for my wedding from this past weekend and it was so beautiful! I had sent her my a photo of my dress via email and the smallest swatch through the mail and she took it from there! She designed for me a lovely fabric flower headband made of shantung silks, satin and organza she even added some accented feathers and beautiful vintage crystal center. All of the leaves/petals on the flower were cut and sewn differently to give such an original look.
She informed me she wasn't able to get any photo's of the accessory before she sent it off to me so I will be posting them on her fanpage and emailing as soon as I get them from my photographer.
Words don't even begin to explain how much Sara brightened my day and added the finishing touch to my wedding. it takes a beautiful person to create such beautiful things.

Sara Faella was so wonderful and was a perfect start to my day. I have never felt or looked so beautiful in my life. Sara is extremely talented and sweet. Her Glam Squad was very professional as well. Every step up to the big day was so easy with Sara. She was actually one of my favorite vendors. She made the whole experience stress free and anytime I needed something or had a freak out, I called she answered we chatted and I felt better!
Sara arrived early on the day of my wedding with a huge smile on her face and eager to get started. She applied individual eyelashes, did earth-tonish smokey eye with soft pinks and pink pale lip. For hair, we went vintage with loose finger waves and curls and both stayed all night!
I am so happy I went with Sara and would recommend her and those talented hands of her's to all brides. She has an eye for beauty and a talent for art.

Sara and her Glam Squad were such a pleasure to work with!! I booked her about a month before my wedding after a bit of a nightmare experience with another hair stylist-- an experience that made me weary that I wouldn't look the way I wanted to on my big day. I was about ready to do my makeup myself when I came across Sara's facebook page on suggestion from another engaged friend and I was sooo impressed with her photos and the obvious passion she has for her art. I e-mailed her that night, and booked a trial soon after. After the trial, I was so please with the hair and makeup that I praised her to all my bridesmaids. Nearly all of them booked their hair and makeup for the wedding day upon my high recommendation and let me tell you--not one single person was disappointed. My wedding guests raved about how stunning I looked, how flawless my makeup and hair were, and how gorgeous all of my girls looked!! I cannot wait to work with Sara in the future--maybe for a boudoir or maternity shoot when the time comes :) All I know is that I never have to look for another makeup artist or stylist again, because I found the one for me!!

Sara and her glam squad were so fun to work with on my wedding day, they made everyone so comfortable and happy (even me, a VERY nervous and OCD bride), and turned out some stunning and amazing results. Great job ladies!!

Tried and True! Just love Sara Faella and her Glam Squad! She was wonderful to work with organized, sweet and on top of her game..she made me and my bridesmaids look stunning. I loved my trial, engagement shoot and day of hair and makeup. It's really hard to find a beauty vendor that does both. She also is an AMAZING couture accessories designer she designed for me a birdcage veil for my ceremony and feather fastener with crystals for my reception. I agree with the ladies on her that Sara is extremely talented and the best advice I can give is to give her creative leadership, you will not be disappointed!
FYI to all brides Sara just received an award on THEKNOT for 2011 vendor of the year! I am so proud to have had her as my artist on my very special day and will be referring her to everyone that is looking for The Best! :)

We can only give 5 stars?! Sara deserves a million stars for making me look and feel so beautiful on my wedding day! The makeup lasted throughout the night and my hair stayed in perfect tact! Sara is so talented in so many ways, with hair, makeup and her couture accessories. Sweet, professional, kind and flexible. Her prices are competitive and the quality of her work is outstanding. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sara and the best part she does "Man Grooming" too! lol She concealed and bronzed my hubby, he had gotten a shaving spot and Sara was there to save the day. We all looked great and I had the time of my life at my wedding.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST AT HER CRAFT! Right from the start I knew I had picked the best! Sara made me feel comfortable and confident, I had her try a couple different eye makeup applications because I was a little indecisive as to what kind of look I was actually going for on my wedding day, first I asked for a simple look, then I asked for a smokey eye (can you say bridezilla?!) finally I said do whatever you think will look best..and WOW I was impressed! Not only, did she have know hesitation reapplying my makeup at my trial but she was so sweet about it too! She ended giving me eyelash extensions, which I never thought I would wear, but they were so awesome that I didn't even want to take them off that night! She also did a little bit of a smokey eye (not too much black, which is key!), highlighted cheeks and a plum glitzy gloss...I was in heaven...and the best part she did the same exact look for me when it came to the big day and swiftly and promptly took care of my bridesmaids and mother too.
I recommend her over and over again, because I was a last minute bride I wasn't able to have Sara design me a couture accessory, they are absolutely beautiful but will be recommending them to my engaged girlfriends.
WE LOVE SARA!

amazingly talented, sweet and accommodating! I wasn't too sure about airbrushing at first but after Sara applied to me on our trial, I was hooked! I don't mean to toot my own horn, BUT I LOOKED GOOD! ;) LOL
and it was all because of Sara. I wanted a luminous, flawless look and let me tell you, I got it! I was a glowing bride. I looked the whole process, Sara made what could be a very stressful time, very relaxing. She has a very calming aura when she's working...talked me through the entire process, even at pressing times (when my friend, who was also my hair stylist was late) she remained calm which made me feel so good!
I wouldn't have wanted anyone else as my Makeup Artist. If I wasn't having my friend as my hair stylist I would have had Sara for that as well. Although, Sara did design a GORGEOUS Couture Birdcage Veil with all these crystals on it! I LOVED IT! She even stayed to help put it in my hair for. love Sara. THANK YOU!! I hope you love your review, you deserve it!

I first met Sara back in February 2010 at a bridal show and quickly scheduled a hair and makeup trial. Before the end of the trial there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted Sara to do my hair and makeup for my wedding in October. A number of my girls (bridesmaids & family members) were also impressed at the trial.

Sara and the Glam Squad (Vanessa, Summer & Nicole) are amazing. They had to do hair and makeup for 8 of us (me, my mother, aunt and bridesmaids). They arrived early the day of my wedding and stayed later than expected because my photographer was late and Sara wanted to make sure he was able to get some photos of me in the process of getting ready.

All of my girls were stunning. Their hair and makeup held up perfectly for the entire day (9hrs from the time they were done getting ready, until the reception ended). My bridesmaid, mother and aunt all loved how they looked, and how they felt. I cannot even begin count how many compliments I've received about how great my hair and makeup looked the day of my wedding. From friends attending and/or seeing photos from my wedding I've been able to refer a number of "soon to be brides" to Sara.

I'm such a huge Sara fan that recently I hired her for a "Trash the Dress" shoot. As expected, Sara did an awesome job on my hair and makeup again! Not only are Sara and the Glam Squad extremely talented, but they also make the whole preparation process a lot of fun!

I can't say enough about Sara! From the initial trial run for my hair and makeup to the day of she was absolutely amazing!! Sara came to my house with the glam squad and beautified me and all of my girls. One thing that I have to say about Sara is that she has a huge heart is is very caring and passionate about what she does. The day of the wedding my junior bm was not getting her hair styled for the wedding she was going to do an up do herself but instead Sara offered to do her hair free of charge for her so that she could feel just as special as the other girls.

My make up came out flawless and my hair was stunning! Sara is amazing at what she does and anyone would be crazy not to chose her for their special day. Thanks Sara!!

Sara was beyond amazing. Like incredibly incredibly times a million amazing!! I adore her so so much... she just did such an awesome job for my wedding. She really went above and beyond to make my wedding day perfect. She and her kick-ass assistants did on location hair and make-up for myself, my 7 bridesmaids and two little girls in my wedding, and honestly, every single girl looked perfect... straight out of a magazine. And my hair & make-up were completely flawless. She couldn't have made me look any more perfect! Her work is so stylish and for the girls she was so easily able to do exactly what each one wanted, even with their opposite hair types and styles. I was blown away!

And to boot, she knew I was stressing the week before about possibly not having enough time to get everyone done, and on the morning of the wedding when I walked into the bridal suite they were completely set up and already starting on 3 of my girls!! 10min before we were even supposed to be there!! It was like instant de-stress for me and just made my day.

Sara also created a couture hair accessory for me that I LOVED!! She hand made it specifically for me based on everything I wanted it to look like and it could not have been any more perfect. I wish I could wear it every day.

I could just go on and on!! DEFINITELY go with Sara Faella for your wedding! I truly believe there is no one else in CT/RI/MA (or probably the country for that matter ;) that could even come CLOSE to her!!

Booking Sara for my August 27,2010 wedding was by far one of the best decisions I made in the planning process. I previously had 3 makeup trials- none of which I felt 100% comfortable with. I came across Sara's name online (3 weeks before my wedding!) and immediately fell in love with the soft, romantic style of her website. I called her to inquire and decided to book her on the spot- foregoing a trial. I definately got lucky that I was able to book her with such short notice!! We met for the first time on my wedding day, and I immediately knew I had made the right choice. She was extremely intuitive and figured out exatly what I wanted- although I had trouble putting it into words. She asked my opinion every step of the way, while offering her advice and making sure I was comfortable with everything she was doing. My makeup turned out exactly how I wanted it and it felt flawless all night long.
Sara is so sweet and her cheeriness is intoxicating! We had so much fun with her and I would not hesitate to reccomend her to my family and friends! The one regret I have is not purchasing my hair piece from her. I can say with 100% confidence that you will NOT be sorry should you choose Sara......SHE IS AMAZING!

I called her to inquire and decided to book her on the spot- foregoing a trial. I definately got lucky that I was able to book her with such short notice!! We met for the first time on my wedding day, and I immediately knew I had made the right choice. She was extremely intuitive and figured out exatly what I wanted- although I had trouble putting it into words. She asked my opinion every step of the way, while offering her advice and making sure I was comfortable with everything she was doing. My makeup turned out exactly how I wanted it and it felt flawless all night long.
Sara is so sweet and her cheeriness is intoxicating! We had so much fun with her and I would not hesitate to reccomend her to my family and friends! The one regret I have is not purchasing my hair piece from her. I can say with 100% confidence that you will NOT be sorry should you choose Sara......SHE IS AMAZING! Read less

If you haven't yet booked your hair and makeup artist for you wedding, look no further! Sara was outstanding from day one....in every sense of the word! From our initial consulation I knew she was the type of person that I was looking for. She is extremely professional, and at the same time fun, down-to-earth, sweet, and knowledgeable. I'm a very indecisive person and after our first consult I decided I wanted to try some other looks. She didn't hesitate to accomodate my needs and worked with me until we got it right! Having met with previous makeup/hair artists that just weren't the right "fit", Sara was a breath of fresh air with her upbeat, positive approach to everything that she does! She even custom made me a BEAUTIFUL hairpiece to wear at my reception that was the perfect compliment to my dress. Sara and her Glad Squad made my wedding party and myself look absolutely stunning, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with! She is extremely talented and will make any bride feel like they're the only one that exists (even though she's THE busiest girl that I've ever met!!) She is the epitomy of professional....but more importantly she is a beautiful person :)

I was so extremely pleased with Sara Faella and her makeup artistry that she provided me with for my wedding. I met with her a few months before the wedding to do a trial run and she was great! She was such a pleasure and had a fabulous selection of makeup! We talked about what I had envisioned for my wedding day and she went to work giving me the "flawless" look. I absolutley loved it! Sara also used eyelash extensions, which was a first for me, but they were so natural looking and really made my eyes pop...I would definitelyreccommend them! Tears didn't even wash them away! The day of the wedding was fantastic and I loved my makeup just as much as the trial. I would highly reccommend Sara and I know that you will be pleased!!

Sara was amazing! I got married a month after one of my good friends who had hired Sara to do her make-up. I was a bridesmaid and we all got our make-up done with fake eyelashes and I loved the way I looked! She had done an amazing job with all of the girls; but I had already hired someone else to do make-up for my wedding. Then I had my make-up trial with this other person and it was horrible! The foundation was streaky and heavy, the eye-liner was in the middle of my eye-lid, she used yellow eye shadow...it was just horrific. She I called Sara three weeks before my wedding to see if she could possibly come do my make-up and she sooo sweetly fit me in before another already booked appointment she had! Sara is so sweet and personable. She helped me to relax that morning. One of the best things about her and she has so many choices for her make-up too. It was not just liquid foundation; I was able to get my face airbrushed and I had beautiful eyelashes...I looked amazing (I can say that about my wedding, right? :)) All night everyone kept telling me I belonged on the cover of a bridal magazine. Sara's professionalism and knowledge about her make-up are what make her so good at her job but her warm heart and sweet personality are what made her My perfect make-up artist! I would recommend Sara to anyone and I look forward to another event where I can work with her again!

Sara did my makeup for my July wedding. She is exceptionally skilled in what she does. It is amazing to see how flawless my makeup is in all of my pictures.

Sara took the time, two trial sessions, to make sure I had the perfect makeup for my skin type. This is no easy feat as I have very troubled and sensitive skin. Sara was extremely patient and listened to my needs.

On our wedding day Sara came with a beautiful flower for me. A symbol of her care and generosity. She went above and beyond to make my day special. Thank you Sara, for making me beautiful on a very special day!

After meeting Sara at the Bridal Expo at Foxwoods Casino we then met for my consultation. While working with me she asked me exactly how I wanted my makeup and hair; from the colors I wanted down to the very last detail. She even looked at some pictures I had printed out and made my hair ten times better than the examples! I was more than happy with the final result and could not wait for her to do it again for my wedding on June 19th. She took her time with everything that she did and let me know the products and techniques she was using. When my big day came I was thrilled to have such a wonderful makeup artist to share my special day with. Sara did not waste any time getting to work. She began with my hair and I was very confident in her what she was doing. She wanted my hair to stay curly so she even took the time to pin it up while putting on my makeup. While doing my makeup she gave me lots of opportunities to make sure it was what I wanted, and it was PERFECT! Sara also did my maid of honors makeup and hair and I loved the way it came out, she looked stunning! Before leaving in the limo Sara made sure all the finishing touches were complete and that we were fully satisfied. I was more than thrilled with the final results and could not wait to see the pictures of Sara’s wonderful work! Sara even went the extra mile to come to my wedding reception and make sure my hair and makeup were still the way I wanted and offered to make touch ups if needed. I have never met anyone as devoted to their work as Sara. She is so passionate in her work and goes the extra mile to make sure her clients are fully satisfied. Everything that she does is beautiful and her pieces are wonderful! Thank you so much Sara for doing such a lovely job on my hair and makeup for my special day. It was truly an honor to have met you and I wish you the best!!! ♥

Sarah was amazing to work with. I was more than happy with my makeup. I was an older bride (39), but still wanted that "fresh" look. I worry that too much makeup ages me. I told Sarah my worries and she made sure I looked gorgeous. She came to me for my consultation and did a trial run. We did a smokey eye and it was beautiful... but not for me. I contacted Sarah and told her that I was more interested in earth tones and would prefer to go with more browns. On my wedding day I don't think I could've looked more beautiful. She also did my Grandmothers makeup last minute and my Gram looked gorgeous!!! Thank you Sarah for helping my day be so phenomenal.

Brides getting married in the Newport, RI area -- YOUR SEARCH FOR WEDDING DAY PERFECTION IS OVER! Look no further than Sara! :)

Sara did the wedding artistry (hair and makeup) for myself and my bridesmaids for my May 7, 2010 wedding at the OceanCliff Hotel in Newport. If I could rate her services any higher than 5.0, I would give her a perfect 10!

I had STRESSED OUT for weeks searching for someone to do hair and makeup for myself, my 6 bridesmaids, and my mom on the day of my wedding, without breaking the bank. I could not believe that other salons in the area were charging $400 for the bride ALONE, and that was not even inclusive of a trial run! I was getting incredibly discouraged by the staggering costs for myself and for my bridesmaids, and also the prospect that we would all have to travel back and forth to a salon together on the morning of my wedding and be finished before noon. Talk about day-of stress.

Through a miraculous stroke of luck I found Sara's website, and was immediately impressed by her style and bridal vision. Classy, timeless. I sent Sara an email right away to check availability for my wedding date, at this point only 2 weeks away, and kept my fingers crossed. To my extremely pleasant surprise, I received a very friendly, personal reply from Sara just 25 minutes later – with an apology from her for having taken so long to reply! To think, other vendors had taken weeks to reply to my phone calls or inquiries, without ever giving me an apology. I was immediately impressed with her professionalism, as well as the sweet, familiar way about her. She worked miracles with her schedule to hold a trial session just a few days later for me in her own home on such short notice, and booked my wedding day then and there in her calendar. My Matron of Honor and I went together to my trial-run, and we loved every minute of it, from the quality of the products being used, to the friendliness and professionalism of Sara, and the fun we had while being there. Not to mention her willingness to listen to my (very vague) ideas of what I wanted, and nailing in on the first try. We did three trial hairstyles to make sure I found the one I loved.

On the day of the wedding, Sara came to my bridal suite at OceanCliff with 2 of her colleagues, and in a matter of 3.5 hours had 6 bridesmaids, 1 MOB, and 1 bride to sparking perfection! It was hectic having so many girls in one room at one time, all filled with nervous, giddy excitement, but Sara and her team remained calm and focused, and we all had a very enjoyable time getting ready together. Originally, only my mom and my sister (Maid of Honor) wanted to get their makeup done in additional to hair, but as soon as the other girls saw how stunning Sara's makeup artistry was, the rest of them decided to have her do theirs, too. She completed them all, to everyone's ecstatic delight, complete with false eyelashes (A MUST for any bride who gets as teary-eyed as I did! :)) We all had so much fun that we wanted Sara to stay for the wedding and party with us, but maintaining her professionalism, she politely and sweetly declined. But it was a truly wonderful personal touch to find, after the ceremony was over, a note she left me in my bridal suite saying that it was a pleasure working with all of us.

The style of all of the bridal party was classic, timeless, non-dated. The word we kept hearing all night about how we looked was “stunning.” All the bridesmaids had messy updos, each unique and perfect for the girl wearing it, no Jersey-licious styles. Not overly made-up. I will definitely use her again for non-wedding events in the future, and my non-married bridesmaids want to use her for their future weddings.

In short, Sara is such a joy to work with! I can't say enough great things about her!

I absolutely adored Sara Faella and her team. I got to know Sara a little before the wedding day because of my hair and makeup trial. In fact, I went twice because although I loved the back of my hair during that first trial, I wasn't sold on the top. I was a little worried as to how it would come out the day of and emailed back and Sara felt the same way and had me go back so we could nail it. I felt so comfortable around her and was so happy she didn't make me feel bad about going back again. She took pictures and made notes as well so that on the day of there weren't any questions. Going for the makeup trial was helpful too because I don't wear a lot and wanted it to be more on the natural side. We tweaked a few things but it looked amazing the day of the wedding. She also brought 2 of her "Glam Girls" for my bridal party and they did a fantastic job. All the girls loved their hair and makeup...even the girls who don't love too much makeup. They were punctual, very professional, and friendly which was great. I found her prices to be reasonable too. Most other hair and makeup stylists were more expensive so that was a big factor in my decision and I was so happy with the end result!

Sara and her glam squad were absolutely fabulous!!! They did the hair and make-up for myself, my mom and my bridesmaids and everybody looked amazingly beautiful!! Our day was a long one, almost 6 hours of beautifying (I had a large bridal party!), but the ladies fit right in with my girls and we had a Fun day! They definitely got my most important day started on the right foot. Not to mention, we all still looked fresh and beautiful at the very end of the night (1AM), with pictures to prove it!! :)

Sara has an amazing talent and I could not have been happier with my hair and make-up! She also made me the most beautiful hair accessory out of a few flowers from my dress and a added the most beautiful details to make it stunning!! Sara is a very generous and kind person, and truly wants you to look your best on your big day. I would absolutely recommend Sara and her team, and truly hope I have the pleasure of working with her and the glam squad again soon!!

Sara Faella was more than just a name. Sara was the complete package, she represents herself as "Artist, Designer, Stylist" and it is obvious that she has earned the name. I found Sara Faella's company at a local wedding expo in which Dashiel, a member of Sara's highly experienced Glam-Squad, sold me the deal. Dashiel asked me a few question and got right into a beautiful high definition airbrush base. Shortly Alisa, a second member of Sara's squad, found just the right mix of earth tones and pinks, to add the perfect shadow, and a soft black liner finished with eye popping mascara. The combination of makeup artistry, personalities and professionalism, sold the show. I was late in the game when I found Sara Faella and was lucky enough that she was available on my wedding date. I asked that Sara used her Designer skills to custom make a few hair pieces for myself and my two bridesmaids. It just so happened that my wedding date was the same as "The Royals"! Sara showed up with a huge smile on her face, a hug and even a beautiful card to commemorate the day. Sara wasted no time in making me feel like my own princess. She started by revealing to me the three most beautiful hair pieces Sara's designs were so sweet. She put together a combination of Chocolate and White fabric overlaid with ostrich feathers I was enthused to add this piece into my accessories. As for makeup; I explained to Sara exactly what I was looking for, and she went on to pull out her mile long make up kit with every color from Olive to Fuchsia and everything in between. Within minutes the transformation began and by the 45 minute mark I was ready for the bug day. When I looked into the mirror I hardly recognized the face smiling back at me. Sara also made over my two bridesmaids and my fabulous mother. Sara made everything so simple and easy. There was no effort on my end, I simply told her what I wanted and she began her work. I would recommend Sara Faellas services to any bride looking to feel like a princess on her special day.

Sara Faella was more than just a name. Sara was the complete package, she represents herself as "Artist, Designer, Stylist" and it is obvious that she has earned the name. I found Sara Faella's company at a local wedding expo in which Dashiel, a member of Sara's highly experienced Glam-Squad, sold me the deal. Dashiel asked me a few question and got right into a beautiful high definition airbrush base.

I searched the message boards on lots of sites, looking for someone who was talented AND reasonably priced, and Sara's name came up a few times. I checked out her website and her work looked top-notch, yet her prices were extremely competitive.

I contacted her for more info and she was immediately responsive, friendly and professional. Plus – and this is key – she followed up. Several other potential vendors took 6-10 days to get back to me at all. In the meantime, Sara answered my questions within the first day, and had already checked in a couple of times, keeping in touch in a very low-pressure way.

At my trial she totally worked with what I wanted, even changing direction mid-stream at my request. I booked her on the spot and it was one of my best decisions! She and her assistant Kate met us at the venue and did stunning hair & makeup for me, my maid of honor (MOH), and my mother.

We all looked gorgeous, and our look lasted all day - even at the beach, on an overcast, damp day. My makeup looked very natural in person (very important to me) but still popped for the photographs.

I have curly hair that frizzes easily, and my MOH has thick wavy hair that tends to straighten out. Well, on my wedding day my curls were smooth and controlled right to the last minute. And my MOH was floored that Sara could get her hair to hold curls all day. Amazing, and worth every penny! She also traveled about 30-35 miles for my wedding, at no extra charge.

I have been following Sara on Facebook and her business is exploding…for good reason! If you're in the RI area (or anywhere in New England) definitely book her quickly!

Thank you Ange!
I just loved having yourself and Dave at the Studio, he was such a good sport, and helpful! throughout the trial process:)
I also loved your Newport Wedding nothing like I've ever seen, since I am always behind the scenes doing the hair and makeup I hardly get to see the wedding venue setup. Yours, was so beautiful. I am so glad you were happy with the results. Kate and I had such a wonderful time!

Sara was booked for my wedding day, so I opted to go for the Glam Squad, and I am so thankful that I did. I worked exclusively with Allie for the day and the trial and she was a star. I showed her what I had in mind and she executed it flawlessly. She also did my makeup for the day of, and I cannot say enough how amazing it looked- she matched my color perfectly and made it so naturally glamorous I could never thank her enough! My bridesmaids were also impressed with their hairstyles and thought that she was an absolute doll to work with.

I had such a great experience working with Sara Faella and her Glam Squad, and couldn't have expected anything more for my wedding day hair and make-up! First of all, you couldn’t find a nicer person to work with – I could tell Sara genuinely cared about each of her brides and it felt great to have someone so sincere. Her assistant, Erin, was also great to work with and was reliable in making sure all of the details were in check.

I went to the Westely studio for my hair trial and was impressed with the comfort and beauty of it. I had brought a picture of what I envisioned for my hair and Sara flawlessly created a replica of the picture, with a little twist to make it unique. Sara’s expertise really showed, as she made suggestions for make-up based on the look I wanted for my wedding day.

On my wedding day, Sara and the Glam Squad not only arrived on time, but were actually ready to set up early. They worked very efficiently, doing 6 bridesmaids, my mom, and me in about 2.5 hours – and with very high quality. Everyone's hair and makeup lasted the whole night, well over 10 hours. I absolutely loved my hair and makeup and every time I see photos, I think how happy I am I booked Sara Faella! I would definitely consider going back to Sara’s studio for future events and recommend her to any bride looking for a dependable, stress-free stylist who can create stunning looks.

Sara is an extremely talented artist. She did a beautiful job on our hair/make-up the day of the wedding, we all looked like models. Her assistant is super easy to get a hold of to schedule appointments and ask questions. Julie from her glam squad also did make-up on the day of the wedding and she was fabulous.
The make-up/hair held up for the most part.

My one gripe, my hair was not as it should've been. Throughout the wedding day Sara indicated that she needed to look at the pictures from my trial to confirm before she started on my hair. When she started on my hair, I felt her use a curling iron and I asked at that point if she had found the pictures from my trial she clearly said yes. Maybe I should've been more forceful, pulled the pictures up myself, but frankly when you are paying that much for a vendor they should at least refresh on the hair style before beginning. My hair looked beautiful however it was not what I had chosen nor is it something I would've chosen, I don't particularly care for curls.

I did not confront Sara on my wedding day, I looked beautiful and there was no time to fix it. I did send a note subsequent to the wedding and have not received an acknowledgement of the error, mistakes happen and an apology would go a long way. Our wedding day was perfect however I am disappointed that the hairstyle I really wanted was overlooked.

Let me start by saying that I loved my makeup and really liked my hair in the end - I had Sara do both. My dissatisfaction was more with the other glammies and the scheduling.

I contacted SF because of her website and the pictures. I know I was booking only a few months prior to my wedding but got attitude that I was lucky I could get in with them. I sent photos to get paired up with a glammie, and went for a trial with Christine. It was OK, but she seemed a little inexperienced. I went dancing, and that night my hair completely fell out. Because it wasn't really what I had asked for, it fell out, took me 3 loads of conditioner to get the teasing and hairspray out that night, and that my makeup was cake-like, I decided I couldn't use her.

Sara told me she was available (did Erin even check with her in the beginning?? Doubt it) I then did another trial with Sara (thank you for fitting me in Sara!) and it was almost spot on for what I wanted. I abused it that day and it stayed in pretty well. The week of the wedding I asked Erin what time to get people to the room, etc. and I got an attitude back that she couldn't tell me, just have everyone show up at 10am. Not great for those who have stuff to do! The day-of was fine, the glammie didn't do a great job (not Christine, another one) and made some of the girls feel second hand to the bride (in the middle of doing makeup she said no one was as important as the bride and handed over eyeshadow that she was USING!) but Sara did wonderful. My hair stayed up for most of the day, and we were outside in windy Newport! My makeup was great. I loved my end result.

Gave Erin feedback that she requested after the wedding, never heard back. It's been 2 months so I decided I've given enough time and I am therefore writing the review. I had plenty of other friends use independent hair/makeup and they came out just as well for a lot cheaper. I would recommend Sara for the bride, wedding party go elsewhere for the high cost.

I'm very disappointed to write this review. I really didn't want to to even say anything but when I got my proofs yesterday, I knew I had to. Sara is a very nice person. She tries to help you out as much as she can however, her professionalism and responsiveness was a continued struggle. I've never worked with anyone that the customer has to chase the business owner for confirmation of meetings. We had scheduled to meet up and she did not confirm until 1 HOUR before our scheduled time and EMAILED me. When I returned her email saying I would be there, I went to her studio and waited around. I then called and had to leave a message. She later texted me that she said she wouldn't be there. Firstly, I was an out of state bride. I did not have time to come back and meet again. She did offer to meet up again. We ended up scratching doing the make up because I had a reaction to our first trial and couldn't make it back up.

Day of wedding: She hired out 2 people she never met before to do the hair for my bridesmaids. How to you hire people you don't even know the quality of their work? Mostly everyone's hair turned out well. My mother in law didn't like her hair and I wasn't thrilled with my maid of honor's hair as well. She was 45 mins to an hour late to do my hair at 11am. We ended up having to push pictures back because I wasn't ready because of my hair. I'm sorry but RI is small and you should have an idea on where you going esp from a business prospective and she grew up in the town where my reception was. (As an out of towner, I never got lost getting to the reception site even my first time there.) Anyways, my hair did not turn out as we had originally did during my trial. It was flat, the curls did not last. We had all our photos done prior to the wedding, so it wasn't a matter of 8 hours had gone by.

I don't know what happened with our wedding. I researched prior to picking her. I had 2 other hair trials and read tons of reviews. I felt confident going into the wedding that it was going to be great. Factors that probably affected our situation: maybe I was too easy going and she thought she could take advantage. She also eloped a week prior to the wedding. While I was trying to find out when she would be arriving on the day of the wedding, I got an email from her assistant that she got married and would be get back to me soon. Maybe she was too wrapped up with getting married, taking care of her son, working 2 jobs, and she had 2 other wedding that day. But either way, if you're starting out your business, your customer should come first esp on their wedding day.
Good luck to all future brides. I hope you have a better day than I did.

Update: I did not see Sarah had replied until now.
First, If you refer to your contract you will see that the address is the same as the address on the whispering pines website. It is also the same address that all of my 116 guests were able to find and 95% of them from out of the state.
Second, the "straightening and smoothing system" you referred to that I used was Redkin shampoo and conditioner and nothing else. I didn't know would be contraindicated for the occasion. Also as a hair care professional, you should have notified myself of what I should be doing to prepare my hair for the wedding. How is your client suppose to know what she should be doing for her hair?
Third, I received no email/information stating that your "glam squad" was booked for the event. I just went back in my emails and when we corresponded about the wedding party getting their hair done you stated "This all sounds wonderful!" You should have disclosed that you were hiring people that you have not worked with prior. I would probably have been ok with it, but it's not very calming to find that out the day of the wedding.
I thank you for trying your best with my wedding. I hope that my comments will help future brides. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

Sara Faella Beauty responded with the following comments:

Hi Lauren,
I apologize that you feel this way. To start, for an additional trial, I had made every effort to confirm with you. I had sent the last email trying to set a time, I am not a pushy business woman and let the brides come to me at ease and at their own time.
As far as your actual wedding day, when you filled out the venue information on your original contract (which states that you are the only one that was needing services that day) you wrote down the incorect address and my poor glam squad and I were driving around all over town. I am sorry I never heard of your venue, it is not typically a wedding venue. I even tried calling it a few times but could not get a hold of an office, which I thought was during normal business hours prior to your date.
As far as hiring out stylist I have never worked with was to try and make you happy. At no point, I told you I was able to accommodate anybody but yourself for you wedding day because myself and glam squad was booked out to two other weddings that day, which I explained to you. Last minute, i was on the phone trying to help.
The stylist I hired, were featured vendors from THEKNOT, they are fabulous stylist and only hired the best for you to make sure you wedding was perfect.
Lastly, your hair. While I was trying to set your curls on your wedding day I commented "Your hair is extremely soft, making it hard to hold the curl", you said "I've been using a straightening and smoothing system on my hair"
I wish you had mentioned this to me prior to your wedding, because I would have advised you to stop the treatment until after the wedding or maybe choose a different style for your day. I am sorry your curls fell but it is the smoothing system in your hair that caused this.
I hope you are enjoying the complimentary hair extensions I gave to you on your day.
I also hope you had wonderful holidays with your new hubby.
love always,
Sara & Glam Squad

This experience was the most stressful part of my whole wedding planning experience, and my wedding day. I have waited 1.5 years to write this review because I don't even like to think about it - but brides deserve the honest feedback. Sara was a no-show for our first consultation when I drove 1.5 hours to get there (her son was sick but I never got a call). I had to drive to RI again on another date. OK, no big deal, a sick kid can’t be helped. Sara talked negatively about other brides, bridesmaids and mothers who were difficult and gave her a hard time. 2 weeks before the wedding she emailed me to change the timing of my services and/or have me use a different stylist that I never met or had a trial with due to another obligation. . My contract stated that Sara, not an employee, would be there for me and my mom unless there's an act of God, emergency,etc. I was very upset and it was too late to cancel.To her credit, Sara has a very charming personality and is very likable. She reassured me that she would be there for me and send a stylist to come back to do my touch up for free. On my wedding day, Sara did a fabulous job on my hair and makeup. I have no complaints with her talent. My mom's stylist (Andrea) was terrible. She didn’t do what my mom asked and didn’t have the airbrush machine for her makeup (which we paid for). My mom’s hair looks better on a normal day than it did that day. My mom ended up re-doing her hair and was in tears. The touchup stylist came an hour late due to scheduling mixup so of course my ceremony started late. The JP was hounding me while in the chair with curling iron still in my hair.This left me walking down the aisle in the wrong frame of mind –stressed, aggravated, and rushed. Taken separately none of these things seem that bad. But put together, and adding to it the general aggravation of wedding planning and the wedding day – it caused me a lot of unnecessary stress. Also cost $300+.

The JP was hounding me while in the chair with curling iron still in my hair.This left me walking down the aisle in the wrong frame of mind –stressed, aggravated, and rushed. Taken separately none of these things seem that bad. But put together, and adding to it the general aggravation of wedding planning and the wedding day – it caused me a lot of unnecessary stress. Also cost $300+. Read less

It is very difficult to write this review because I think Sara and her team are a very talent group of individuals. I chose Sara's team because most of the reviews on this site and other places were very positive. I did notice that there were some very bad reviews as well. Never did I think I would have to post a bad review. While the two stylist that came to my house did a very good job at what they did. However, they were not able to do make-up on one person because the stylist doing the make-up had another client. I think Sara and her team need more experience in how to deal with issues when they arise.
The stylist did NOT inform me of this until she left for 10+ minutes to take a call outside. She came back and said that she wouldn't be able to do someone's make-up because she had to leave. She never suggested alternate options such as my hair being done by the other stylist who could stay later or if she could skip putting lip gloss on the other girls to give her enough time to do all the ladies make-up. Her and Sara's only solution was to leave someone out.
I don't think that should EVER be the solution! If I had been informed earlier, we could have worked together to come up with a better solution. She didn't offer to meet up somewhere after she was done with the other client to touch-up make-up and do the other person's make-up.
I have spoken with Sara about the situation and she claimed that the bridesmaids were late and that everyone was supposed to be there when the stylist arrived. If there are only 2 stylists, how can they work on more than two people at a time? Sadly, no one on her team ever informed me that everyone needed to be there when the stylist arrived. No one ever confirmed how many stylist were coming and no one ever told me that they had to leave at a certain time to go to another client. When I tried to confirm details a week or so before I was told that Sara had all the contracts and whatever was written on my contract was what time the stylists were coming. Not only was one person left out of make-up BUT clearly they did not leave any extra time if someone didn't like the make-up the first time or to do any touch ups.
Sara's team is very talented - but they need some work in the customer service department and should NEVER EVER leave without completing everyone in the bridal party as contracted to do. It seems from my expierence and the other reviews that when Sara and her team do not encounter any issues they are perfect. But if they do, it seems the way they deal with the situation is not in the interest of the client.

Hi Laura,
We are very sorry your experience was less than satisfactory with us, our brides usually love us and our work. From my understanding, some of your bridal party were late which caused everything to run behind. Yes, the contracted time is the time have a stylist booked for you. Again, we are so sorry to hear this and take all of our reviews very seriously.
As a result, we are creating a new downloadable page on our website of FAQ's, policies and procedures. So there is never any miscommunications again.
I hope you agree that it was a tough situation your stylist was in and we tried accommodating the best we could. We wish you the best with your new husband!

I had an overall horrible experience working with Sara's Glam Squad.

Let me start by saying that the Glammie I worked with, Brianna, was extremely sweet, patient, and did beautiful work. She was a pleasure to work with. I would work with her again independently of Sara's Glam Squad in a heartbeat, if that were possible.

What made my experience so negative was really the back-end side of things and working with Sara herself, such as getting a signed contract together, arranging details of the day itself like what time to start the hair and makeup services, and getting a response by email or phone to any of my inquiries.

The worst of it was really the contract. If you are someone who wants a signed contract with all details worked out in hand before your wedding, I recommend working with another beauty services provider.
The week before my wedding, I still did not have the contract back from Sara with her signature. I called both her cell and the office phone every day that week, and on those occassions when there was an answer, all I received were excuses - Sara was travelling, or we are having problems with the printer, or she's teaching a class... Longer story short, 11:30 p.m. the night before my wedding I STILL did not have a signed contract back from Sara. I was in tears because I was so frustrated with the way I was being treated.

In the end, working with Sara was the most stressful part of my entire wedding planning experience. I would not wish that on anyone. Hair and makeup services should be a fun part of your wedding day that make you feel beautiful and relaxed, and should not cause any stress, especially that which could have easily been avoided!

Hi Rachel
I just wanted to clarify for our future brides that this bride was what we consider a last minute bride, as we did not receive payment for her deposit to hold her date until about 4 weeks before her wedding.
Which was mid July 2013, her wedding was mid August 2013. We did inform that we were in the mist of wedding season, once her deposit was paid we sent her contract out on July 24th (approx one week after deposit was paid). We then waited for a signed copy back, once received back and with her wedding approaching so quickly we verbally through text and phone conversation as well as email confirmed that her date was booked and confirmed timing, number of artists, and services that were in the contract.
With disregard to our policies, Rachel persisted she wanted another signed copy of her contract. The quickest we were able to process this was the week of her wedding (1.5 after we received her signed copy), typically our brides are a little more proactive in booking with us and more understanding of our policies if they are before the 60 day cut off to edit contracts but this bride was not our typical bride.
Although we do love happy brides I feel as though this bride stressed herself, we always answered every call, text and email. Why our policies were disregarded by her and the demand to have her own demands from our company I am not quite sure.
Regardless, we always take our reviews very seriously whether we agree with them or not.
Thank you for reviewing us! Glad you loved Brianna! For future brides and consumers. It is important to review a companies policies to see if they are a good match for you! :)

This is a new review, responding to Sara’s email below.

Sara wrote back to my first review, and in her opinion deserved a much higher rating. I’ll stand by my rating, and would like future brides to know how shocked I am by Sara’s response.

1. She stated that her assistant Savana is no longer working for her company. Why does this matter to me? I’m glad she does not work for her company any more, because she could not get the job done. If she was properly trained by Sara Faella, she should have been able to do simple updo’s by herself, not just set curls. All of my bridesmaids had to wait to have their hair put up by one artist. She did not plan her timeline properly, brought along an incapable staff member, and threw our day off schedule. My bridesmaids, my mother, and myself were quite upset with Sara’s decision to bring along a person who could not do updo’s.

2. Second, Sara states that "it is really hard for a non-stylist to understand the process and time it takes to create looks, especially for a wedding where every look needs to be perfect." She goes on to explain that she believes there are two colors for eggplant. Really? I started to doubt myself, and have asked my people “when you think of eggplant as a color, what comes to your mind.” Everyone, and I mean, EVERYONE says deep purple. Google eggplant color, Sara. It’s purple.

3. Sara, you stated that you were unable to get ahold of me through email to find out which eggplant color I wanted. This, and this alone Sara, is why I will write an additional review. **How dare you lie.** Myself, my dress designer, and my wedding coordinator tirelessly tried to contact YOU. We emailed, called, and you were the one who was hard to get ahold of. Your lack of communication was extremely daunting, and had me nervous right up until my wedding day. I am furious that you thought you could put the lack of contact on me. What bride would EVER ignore the artist who was making a piece of her ensemble? None. And that, Sara, is why I am here to let future brides know that you not only were hard to get a hold of, had terrible timing, but are also A LIAR.

Dear future brides, good luck with Sara. If I had to choose again, I would have picked someone else.


Original review below:

I loved Sara's final products. She has an incredible amount of talent, and created a beautiful look for me on my wedding day.

However, in almost every other regard, I was completely disappointed.

Sara did not easily respond to emails or to phone calls. I could barely get in touch with her. I had two other people trying to get ahold of her, and they too had extreme difficulty getting in touch.

Sara was going to create a headpiece for my wedding day, that would mimic a flower on my dress. The owner of my dress store would call Sara multiple times a week, and would even drive to Westerly to try to get her the flower. I was emailing her also, trying to make sure that she had the flower weeks ahead of the wedding. I emailed her asking about how the headpiece was coming out, and if she could send me any pictures of it so far. She got the flower days before the wedding. Sara did not make the headpiece until 9 am the day of my wedding. She made it in my hotel room, when she was supposed to be starting the updos for my bridesmaids.

Luckily, my bridesmaids noticed that she was about to make an entirely wrong color choice. I had told Sara that my colors were sapphire blue and eggplant purple. She brought bright teal blue and bright green. She was about to glue on a green feather, when one of my bridesmaids asked her why she had green. Sara said "mary wanted eggplant." My bridesmaid informed her that eggplant was deep purple.

When I came in the room at 9:45, I asked why Sara was not attending to the girls' hair, and she promptly started with my maid of honor. Her artistry with hair was beautiful...and it naturally takes a long time. Luckily, she brought an assistant. Sadly, the assistant couldn't even do a simple updo. All the assistant did, was curl each of my bridesmaids hair into a style that looked like a character from a dr. suess book.

After all of the bridesmaids hair was curled, Sara asked her assistant to start doing their hair. All of my girls wanted simple soft updo's. The assistant seemed completely inexperienced, and she and Sara decided that Sara would just do each updo.

Sara started on my hair and make-up, both of which came out beautifully. However, I became quite anxious because it was taking long, and our pictures were about to start. Additionally, 3 of my girls still looked like cartoons.

The assistant tried to put make up on one of my bridesmaids, and the blush ended up looking like a clown cheek. Sara took one look at it, and told the assistant that she would do the makeup from then on.

My coordinator kept coming in and reminding Sara about how little time was left, and Sara would just keep telling her we needed more time. She made all of my girls, and myself, stressed.

I went out for pictures first, and Sara had to complete two girls' hair, and one's makeup in about 20 mins.

Sara has an unbelievable amount of talent, but I would not recommend her as a vendor, unless you, the bride, are the only one getting done by her. She obviously had not had a trial with her incompetent assistant, and also lacks the formalities of responding to clients who are paying her.

She has a charming personality, but it almost seemed fake towards the end of the morning. Obviously, we were all growing more and more anxious about her assistant, and the time. Sara would just talk and talk and act like she wasn't nervous at all. A lot of people like her on here, but I've also noticed that she has had similar reviews to mine on the knot.com.

Good luck :)

Sara Faella Beauty responded with the following comments:

Hi Mary,
I would first like to thank you for the compliments you did give me in this review. Although, I do believe I deserved a much higher rating than what you gave me.
I also have to disagree with some of the statements above. There are many that just are not true. The assistant that was at your wedding, Savana is no longer working for my company. Although, I do have to stand behind her that she was my prep girl and if there's time she creates up-do's and looks for me. She was trained by me. The "Dr. Seuss" look you are referring to, is what the hair looks like when it is getting set in curls. This is a process that helps prep curls for up-do's.
It is really hard for a non-stylist to understand the process and the time it takes to create looks, especially for a wedding where every look needs to be perfect.
As far as your accessory, there are two different colors of eggplant Green and Purple, since I was unable to get a hold of you through email to ask which eggplant color it was, I brought extra crystals with me to make sure I was fully prepared.
I hope your wedding photo's came out beautiful, as I have a feeling they are stunning. I even was texting your Wedding Planner throughout the evening of your wedding to ask how your hair and makeup was holding up and she said it was perfect and beautiful. Which is not hard to believe because you were most definitely a beautiful bride!
I wish you had emailed me or contacted me about how upset you were, this is the first time I am hearing any of this. I had no idea and would have done anything to make it right.
I hope you had lovely holidays.

love always,

STAY AWAY FROM USING SARA FAELLA'S GLAM SQUAD!!!! Sara is never there in the office or State for that matter and her team never answers emails and are very unprofessional. I had so many complications from the beginning, my trial went horrible the girl wasnt prepared at all as she "just came back from vacation and didnt have her tools readily available" and Sara assured me everything would be fine... only it was not. The girl she sent to do my bridal party's hair was SO rude and would not listen when I told her my mother was not happy with her hair. She had to do it over so many times that she was unable to get to other girls' hair that we had to pay for in advance and Sara claimed that she would refund me the money for the hair they didnt get to do but after stopped returning my emails and never issued the refund. This business is a joke. Don't waste your time and energy. Go to a true professional team with an owner that cares about their clients!!!
