The Magic Men are classically trained stylists... We bring both elegance and class to your day... specializing in classic and timeless looks. Each package is customized to the Bride. We like to recommend a meet and greet... where the Bride can tell the couple's story... this will provide a vision into the practice day. Packages can also include the Engagement photo hair, Bachelorette Party, the Practice, Rehearsal day, and the day of.... We are teamed up with our amazing make-up artist Adriana... a featured and traveling artist for Bobbie Brown for many years, including Fashion Week in New York. She's an expert in accenting your beauty without surprises. All in all... it is always our goal to not only know the hair that you want, but the story and style that is you...

So if you are wondering why "The Magic Men". It was a name given to me by two little boys. As the bridal party cascaded out of the house I was at that day.... I walked out with Ricky. The two brothers looked at us in amazement and said to their mom "there's the Magic Men". I couldn't think of a more perfect name for the company.

A non-refundable fee is paid in advance to reserve the event. Individual pricing can be set for the guests or one sum for the bride should she choose to offer it as a gift.

Sign the Magic Men up immediately!!! The little boys who "coined" the name are my parents' next door neighbors. Over the years the little boys have seen me, my sister and many of my friends in our regular day to day lives. I'm not surprised they assumed the dream team of Tony, Ricky, and Adriana must have used magic when they saw us come down those stairs, because we were STUNNING! I'm still receiving comments about how wonderful everyone's hair and makeup looked. Our bridal party party spanned a wide range of hair textures, styles and skin tones--short hair, curly hair, African American hair, bare-minimum makeup wearers, to super-glam. The group did a fabulous job of making each of us look spectacular. Everyone did a fantastic job of understanding and adhering to the unique styles and personalities of each of us. The Magic Men and Adriana came to my parents home and were set up all around the house in stations and worked on the girls in shifts. It was a very relaxed and fun environment on a day that could have been very stressful. They put us at ease and were very engaging with everyone. My hair looked amazing and my makeup was incredible. Both held up for the entire day/night--which for an August wedding in Chicago certainly was magic!

Tony is absolutely wonderful. I have being going to Tony as long as I have lived in Chicago and have a longer relationship with him than my now husband! (Who also has grown to know and love Tony over the years as well.) I wouldn't have considered having anyone else come near my hair on my big day. Tony has become a very good friend; someone that I love and trust and wouldn't know what to do without. Although I've had the benefit of years of friendship, for those of you brides browsing without that history, you won't be sorry if you chose the Magic Men. Tony is very kind, friendly, patient and an excellent listener. He will make you and your bridal party look absolutely fabulous--in whatever way that is for you and your girls. I know choosing those who will be an integral part of your wedding day can be stressful, but this one really is a no-brainer ladies!

Ricky and Adriana were also amazing! Ricky is great and very friendly. He was somehow able to win over my anti-girlie girl friend who swore she would punch anyone that tried to mess with her hair. She looked phenomenal and is even planning to drive back to Chicago to see him the next time she needs a cut! Adriana could have been intimidating with her extensive background in the the makeup industry and all of the work she's done at fashion shoots and on the runways. After all, we were just a regular group of Midwestern girls. On the contrary, she was absolutely wonderful, sincere, sweet, and patient. She somehow knew exactly how to compliment and accentuate the beauty in each of us, with just the right amount of makeup. My husband is still talking about how gorgeous our sisters, moms and friends looked.

I (clearly) can't say enough about how great my experience was with Tony and the crew. You won't be sorry if you decide to give them a call!

My wedding hairdo and makeup turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined. My bridesmaids and Mom looked stunning. I could not have asked for a better stylist. Tony created a style that matched my vision. The Magic Men are professional and timely and ever so patient. It was so important for my makeup and hair to be perfect; my expectations were exceeded. My up do stayed flawlessly in place until 3:00 AM when my husband helped my take it down. As I look back at my pictures, I couldn't be happier with my hair and makeup. I would recommend the Magic Men to any Bride!

Tony at Free Nation of Beauty did my hair for my wedding and it was beautiful! He did a cut and highlights a couple weeks before the wedding day and then styled it the day of. I could not have been happier with the results! I looked like me - only better! He worked with my natural style and made me feel beautiful. He is a wonderful stylist and fantastic person that sincerely cares about his clients. He also did my mom's hair as well as my mother-in-law and sister-in-law's and they were all so happy and had so much fun with him. He worked with our schedule and was very accomodating to the hectic day! I recommend Tony to everyone - he is just amazing!

Tony did an amazing job with my hair on my wedding day. He inquired about how I wanted my hair done, as well as what my dress looked like in order to determine the best way to put my hair up. I did not have him practice before the big day, by choice, not because he wouldn't do it, and he was able to create a unique and beautiful style that complimented me. I received many compliments on my hair that day. It also stayed up the whole night with minimal to no touch ups. I highly recommend Tony for your wedding day!!

Tony has been doing my hair for seven years now and I would not even consider for a second seeing anyone else. He is fantastic. So, of course on my wedding day - he was an essential element. I couldn't have been happier with my hair. Tony told me he would do a practice run if I wished, but since I was so confident in his abilities I didn't feel it was necessary- I was right. Tony asked to see my dress before doing my hair and talked to me about the overall theme or mood of the wedding. He styled my hair very naturally and it held up beautifully. It was exactly what I was looking for and looked fantastic with my dress and fit my personality as well. I received many many compliments on my hair. Tony is the type of stylist who puts a bride at ease. He offers his professional opinion but in the end leaves everything up to you and backs your decisions 100%. He is extremely flexible and works within the constraints of the busy wedding day. Tony is very professional but not pretentious and the price is very reasonable. I HIGHLY recommend Tony to any type of bride and for any style of wedding. Thanks to Tony, my hair was one thing that I knew I wouldn't have to worry about on my wedding day.
