Tara is awesome!! She did such a wonderful job with my hair along with all of my bridal party. We each showed her a picture of what we wanted and she recreated it to look exactly like the picture. She made sure that our hair stayed in place all night without giving us the "helmet head" look with too much hair spray. Everyone's hair looked soft and beautiful.

She has such a great personality and made us laugh all morning which is what you need on the morning on your wedding day.

She would always respond to my texts/emails/calls within minutes to an hour of sending them.

I would 100% recommend Tara for your wedding or any event.

WOW WOW WOW, Tara does beautiful work!!! I really don’t think I could have dreamt that my hair would look as amazing as it did on my wedding day. In addition to my up-do, Tara did all of my bridesmaids and maid of honor, which accounted for six other people. She got to the Fox Hollow early and didn’t leave until we were all in our dresses and she had perfected our styles. She helped place my veil and made me look gorgeous. In addition to this, she was super nice and friendly. I received compliments from so many guests specifically about my hair. They just couldn’t believe how fantastic the curls looked with the hair embellishment and the sweeping side style. I wish I could wear my hair like that every day!!! Tara is a true professional at what she does – she understands the timing of wedding days, how to make everyone comfortable, what looks good on a person, how to suggest hairstyles and best of all, she makes absolutely stunning hair styles. Thank you Tara for making my wedding day hair completely perfect!!!!!!!!!!!

Tara was spectacular. Not only was everyone's hair gorgeous but she is just a pleasure to work with. On a day as important as your wedding, you want to work with and pro and Tara is 100% that. In addition to being incredibly talented, she is organized, punctual, personable and funny... which kept the mood lite and upbeat during what could be a stressful day. She really listened to what everyone wanted for their styles and as a result, my wedding party all looked stunning!!! THANK YOU TARA!!!

Tara was by far one of my favorite vendors. I did at least 10 hair trials and no one was doing it right. I gave up and just stopped searching then I thought to search on here and found Tara, I quickly went in for a trial. she did exactly what I wanted. not to mention she was just awesome and I loved talking to her. I wanted to do a different look during our long day so I knew I had to get the all day package. she not only fixed up my hair but fixed up my girls. and on top of that got us drinks! she was more helpful then our bridal attendant!!! plus everyone just loved her. I remember going up to my mom and saying make sure you tip her more because we all love her so much lol. :) she was beyond amazing. my hair has never looked so good. I recommend her to any bride getting married. I recommend her for anytime you need nice hair lol. I can't recommend her enough. she is the best you'll get so don't even bother with anyone else.

The morning of my wedding day was so memorable :) perfect even!

One part I can't help but recall is the feeling of uncertainty about what my hair would look like on my wedding day!

I did my trial prior to the wedding, with Tara and every hair style was unique, but I wanted to make sure I loved loved my hair. So I had a very difficult time choosing the "one". After trials and styles and hundreds of pictures. I was pleasantly surprised!!!!

I explained to Tara on my Wedding Day what I wanted, and that I changed my mind. She created my picture perfect hairstyle that was complimentary to my face, my dress, my style!

I was so excited and so blown away with the reveal I literally screamed (it was caught on video). It was absolutely perfect!!

Tara is a wonderful. She is professional, personable, and I would recommend any Bride to feel 100% confident with her.

Tara is wonderful. She is professional, funny, easy going, and extremely talented. She did such a wonderful job on my hair for my wedding. I received so many compliments on my hair. She also did all of my bridesmaids hair and they all looked beautiful. She is calm and easy going the day of the wedding making for a stress free and fun environment. She stayed as long as we needed her to say in order to finish our hair. I am from out of state and she only does hair trials during the week as she does events on the weekends, which meant that I had to take a day off from work; however I'm so glad I did! I would definitely recommend Tara.

Tara’s involvement with my wedding hair style began long before the actual day of my wedding. In the months leading up to the big day, she patiently guided me toward choosing the perfect extensions to match my hair and the perfect style to complement my look, personality, and personal preference. She worked with me every step of the way to ensure that I was more than satisfied with my final style choices, and she executed them flawlessly. On the day of the wedding, Tara provided much more than hair styling services. He warm and outgoing personality kept me not only calm but laughing and relaxed during what ordinarily would be the most nerve wracking hours leading up to the ceremony. She then styled my niece’s long locks beautifully and made her feel like quite a respected grown up and member of the bridal party. Tara was even kind enough to touch up my mother’s hair after she had arrived at the venue displeased with her own style. Talented, professional, and simply charming…. Every bride should be so lucky as to have Tara Benish as a wedding stylist.

Tara is amazing! She made the entire experience from the trial to the actual day of preparations absolutely stress-free. Not only did she make my hair look better than I ever could have imagined, she did an excellent job with my Mom and my many bridesmaids (7 of the 8!). Further, there was a last minute addition who also was able to get her hair done at a moment's notice in time for the cars to take off for the church. I cannot recommend her enough for her talent, flexibility, personality, character, and professionalism through the whole process -- not to mention the value!

Having Tara do everyone's hair (bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride) was one of the best decisions I made on my wedding day. Everyone was pleased and one of my bridesmaids said that when she gets married she would like to have Tara do everyone's hair too. From the beginning, Tara was flexible and helpful. Any time I had a question or wanted advice, she was there and responsed right away. On my wedding day, she made herself available any time I needed and went out of her way to fix the hair of one of my bridesmaids who couldn't make it that morning and had her hair done by another stylist.

I received so many compliments on my hair it was unbelieveable. I had a vision of what I wanted and Tara made it happen :)

Tara did the hair for myself, my mother, Flower girl and all 5 bridesmaids. She truly did an exceptional job. On top of making sure to be in touch with me in the weeks prior to make sure she had all the information she needed for the day of the event, she even arrived early. She was completely prepared even with a chair for us which was perfect since the hotel room we were in only had one chair in which my makeup girl was using. One of my bridesmaids actually wasn't going to get her hair done but decided the day of she wanted something done and Tara was great enough to fit her in, which entail made my bridesmaids day!! I could not of dreamed of my wedding hair looking any better. I definitely recommend Tara to all Brides, bridesmaids or any woman looking for a special hairstyle for a any event!!

Tara wowed myself as well as my bridesmaids and my mother. I knew when I met her for our trial run that she was the hair stylist for me on the biggest day of my life. She kept me relaxed and comfortable. My bridesmaids and my mom were not introduced to her until the day of and all of them were so happy with the end result. She was just like one of the girls. She even helped button me into my dress. A terrific personality, flexible and a true talent! I would recommend her to brides-to- be out there. I found her on my own since I recently moved out to the area. I did my research and my research brought me to her. So happy!

Tara is the perfect person to do anyone's hair for their wedding! After seeing the amazing work she did with my sister's and her bridesmaids' hair on her wedding day this past summer, I knew I could rest assured knowing that my hair, as well as my bridesmaids' hair, would be nothing short of fantastic as well. Tara really listened to my bridesmaids as they described the styles that they wanted and put a creative twist on each and every one. She also happily worked with me on more than one occasion to help me figure out what kind of style would be best since I am so indecisive and there are so many options out there! Additionally, she created clips out of flowers that I bought to have in each of my bridesmaids' hair. Her clips turned out to be aboslutely beautiful and a big money saver! In the end my hairstyle gave me just the right amount of texture and elegance to work perfectly with the look I was aiming for. I would not have changed a thing about it! Throughout the morning of preparations for the wedding ceremony, Tara didn't leave right after our hair was finished, but she wanted to stay the whole time after everyone's hair was done in case any last minute adjustments had to be made as pictures were being snapped. Tara really truly cares about her work as a hair stylist and it shows through her personality and hair designs. My grandmother used to say that "a person's hair is the crown of their face" and Tara's work gives great truth to her saying. Overall, Tara is someone that I would recommend to anybody anytime when planning their own big day!

I cannot recommend Tara enough! She is SO talented and can deal with any kind of hair. She made me feel so confident that I was going to look beautiful that day, and she did! But more importantly, she did an amazing job with my bridesmaids!!! Every single hair style of had creativity, personality, and a unique touch. Every girl was SO happy with how they turned out. I have a couple girls that had thick unruly hair or very thin hair - and both of them got gorgeous hairstyles that they LOVED! Tara works magic, and she does it with ease. She was also incredibly responsive to all of my emails and calls, which I really appreciated!!

I knew that Tara was going to my hair for my wedding day because she's my regular stylist. I trust her with my hair and that's a big deal for me! We had spoken about some styles as the date got closer but I just felt totally at ease and knew that she would nail it no matter what, it wasn't a part of the wedding that stressed me out because I had Tara. A few weeks before we did one trial, I showed her a picture of an idea I had and she customized it and nailed it, I loved it!
On the day of Tara came with Liz her assistant for the day, who I had heard great things about. We had 9 girls including me that needed hair and everyone, EVERYONE looked absolutely beautiful. Tara is truly a master at what she does. She nailed my hair and then we changed it a little with the headband for my reception, my day would not have been as perfect as it was without her!!! Oh and PS, there were tornadoes on my wedding day and the wind was insane and my hair stayed put :) Thank you Tara!!!!! xo

Tara is a talented, professional and happy hairstylist. After a couple of other trials not going well, I was a week away from my wedding with very little hope when I walked into her salon. The second I met this bubbly, energetic person, I knew she would get the job done. I showed her the photo for inspiration and she nailed it on the first try. Then she did a couple other options and I loved those too. I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I was excited for her to be there on my wedding day. Tara kept in contact with me throughout the week and when the day arrived she was there a little early and ready to roll. She also did my 4 bridesmaid's hair and when my future mother-in-law came back from her hair appointment almost in tears, Tara was there to save the day. Tara gets hair, she gets style, she gets her clients and she gets weddings. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone.

Truly a professional and really took the time to make sure that my entire wedding party was comfortable with their styles. She's incredibly responsive and was always very fast with getting back with any questions I had. Style by Tara is top notch and I would recommend her a thousand times over.

Tara was lovely to work with. She is friendly and upbeat and can whip up a hairstyle very quickly. I was very undecided on how I wanted to wear my hair and didn't choose until the day of. My updo came out great and she even stayed until after my first look pictures to adjust any issues I had since it was a very windy day.

My hair stayed up all night and looked great the next day! Thank you, Tara!
