I first contacted Gayle and Sara because I had been unhappy with other trials. I was completely blown away by my entire experience, from my trial to getting ready the morning of our wedding. Sara and Gayle took all of my preferences into account while also designing hair and makeup to work best with my facial structure and skin. They took careful notes so everything was identical the day of. The morning of the wedding Sara was early and ready to go, and also was so friendly and comfortable that she took away almost all of my jitters ! I left for our venue looking better than I thought I ever could, and my hair and the makeup stayed put the entire day--even through a pretty windy ceremony! Even months later people keep mentioning how much they loved my hair :) I would wholeheartedly recommend these two for your wedding day or other event where you want to look amazing!"

From the first time I met Gayle for my Bridal Hair Trial I knew I had found the right person to do my hair. Gayle arrived on time, prepared and listened to what I wanted and delivered!

Of course I hired Gayle to do my hair on the day of my wedding and she was great at keeping in contact up to the day of the wedding. Her and her assistant arrived on time and did an absolute amazing job on my hair, plus 5 Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride and 2 flower girls. They went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable and relaxed the day of. They were flexible at listening to any changes we had the day of and even gave their professional advice, which ended up looking beautiful! Gayle had no problem keeping on schedule and even stayed a little longer to help with last minute touch-ups before taking pictures. It was a little windy the day of my wedding, but my hair stayed flawless through the entire night! Me and my girls received so many compliments on our hair!

Thank you Gayle!! I will definitely keep you in mind!!

Gayle made me look so beautiful on my wedding day! I didn't have time to do a trial beforehand, but I just told her what I had in mind and she did my hair and make-up just the way I wanted. And she was so fun to work with...her calming and easygoing nature was just what i needed to help me feel relaxed as I was getting ready. She also did hair and make-up for my mom, sister, and my two best friends and they all looked amazing...she truly has a gift!

Even before the big day she was so organized and on top of everything which made the whole process stress-free for me. I wish all of my vendors had been as organized and professional as Gayle!

I feel blessed to have found Gayle to do my hair for my wedding. I researched and interviewed countless crazy, overpriced, irresponsible, unprofessional hair/make-up artists....and when I got a hold of Gayle, I immediately knew that she was exactly what I was looking for. From the first phone conversation, through the hair/makeup trial at her home, to the wedding day - she was wonderful to work with. She has a great personality, she listened to my ideas, gave great suggestions, and best of all - was able to create a gorgeous hair-do, which matched my vision for my wedding day. She was never stressed, which in turn put me and my bridesmaids at ease. She was punctual, gracious, fun, and a true professional. When the number of assistants available changed, Gayle immediatly communicated the situation with me, and adjusted the schedule for the day to accomodate a new time-line. I wasn't worried at any point, because I knew Gayle had everything under control at all times. For one bride and six bridesmaids, her pricing was fair, and she exceeded all our expectations! Sarah, the make-up artist, did a fantastic job with all of us, and she and Gayle make a super team.

My experience with Gayle couldn't have been better!

During the trial, she played with my ideas, took suggestions, and added her own twist until we were all happy with the results. My hair on the day of the wedding looked even better than during the trial.

She also did several of our bridesmaids hair and they all turned out great.

She was extremely affordable, willing to come to the house which saved us a great deal of hassle, and very friendly.

I would definitely recommend Gayle to any bride in the San Francisco Bay area.

Gayle is fabulous! She is a true artist who helped me feel gorgeous on my wedding day. What I loved about her is that she was willing to accommodate all my requests and carefully listened to all my mom's concerns. She's super patient and very talented.

On the wedding day, Gayle arrived with suitcase full of hair accessories and let me wear one of her hair pieces when I decided I don't like mine that much. She made me and my mom look absolutely beautiful and her work lasted through the whole night!

Gayle is amazing. She was prepaired for anything and really came through for me on my big day. I ended up having to use hair accessories for one of my bridesmaids, since she forgot to bring the clips i bought for her to match the other girls. Gayle pulled out her kit and found something to match the rest of the ladies. She got us all ready on time and was extremly professional and fun. I really appreciated how detailed she was and how willing she was to get my hair just right. You can't go wrong with Gayle and her team!! Thanks Gayle for all you hard work and giving me the wedding hair I've always dreamed of.

I found Gayle through a work reference at almost the very last minute. From the moment I met her she put me at ease, and I felt completely safe in her hands. I just knew that whatever she came up with would look fabulous and it did! On our first meeting, she took the time to listen to what I thought I wanted, asked about the dress and the day and time and, within minutes it seemed, had created this beautiful semi-up-do which looked effortless and natural and utterly beautiful. When I left that day I had every confidence she would take great care of my bridesmaids and myself, and she did! My wedding was a midday wedding located about an hour away from the location where I was getting ready so Gayle had to show up quite early, but she was there on time, with a big smile and even had tissue at hand when I got a bit sniffly. I cannot say enough that is good about her, if I ever have the excuse to get my hair done up again, I wouldn't hesitate to call her, or recommend her to anyone else.

Gayle invited me to a free consultation at the studio in her home to discuss what I wanted for my wedding day. On the wedding day, she came to the wedding venue on time and ready to do my make-up and hair. This saved so much time during a jam-packed day. She created a wonderful look for me and I received so many positive comments from my guests about how I looked---everyone loved the flowered headpiece in my hair which she placed and well-secured it so it would not fall off during the evening. I would recommend Gayle to any bride who wants to look her best on this very special day in her life. And I want to say that I am not the usual young bride---I am 66 years old and looked and felt like a 20-something bride!

Gayle is personable, generous with her time and has excellent follow-up. I had no idea what I wanted when I went to see her for the trial and she gave me great ideas and spent as much time as I needed working through it with me. She was accessible the entire time I worked with her, responding promtly to my emails and questions. When I wanted a couple of things done differently the day of the wedding, she was more than accomodating, and delivered exactly what I asked for. I could tell it was important to her not just to get the job done, but to be sure I was happy with the outcome. My bridesmaids were pleased with Gayle's work as well, and each commented on how nice she is and how much they enjoyed meeting her. I would highly recommend Gayle's services.

Gayle did an outstanding job on my hair and on top of that has the greatest and most calm composure to make you feel at ease and confident to find the perfect style you want for your wedding. I did a few trials with her and was so excited to have found her -esp. with such a great value for what she provides and professional in her services and responsiveness as well. She is very talented and was a pleasure to have around while i was nervous and getting ready to walk down the aisle! A secret gem, I highly recommend her for weddings or any event to make you feel like a supreme goddess.

Gayle was the best. Not only was she flexible with my date (over Labor Day weekend and quite a drive for her), she really got what I was looking for, and made my hair look like I've never seen it look before. She even went out of her way to find a picture of what I wanted, and then to make my hair look exactly like the picture. My hair lasted all day, even after extensive boogeying to our funk band!

Gayle was also a very calming presence the morning of my wedding, even as my makeup artist rushed to put my makeup on while Gayle was working on my hair!

I cannot recommend Gayle highly enough. If you are in the Bay area, hire Gayle! You won't be sorry!

Working with Gayle was fun and productive from the start. She is organized, responsive, communicative, and was willing to work with my and my bridesmaids' budgets to ensure we all ended up looking like we wanted to look on my wedding day. I would highly recommend Gayle to anyone looking for event hair in the bay area!

Gayle was friendly, accommodating and her prices were extremely reasonable! Most other hairdressers were charging an arm and a leg to travel to Napa, but Gayle's services were within my budget and I got exactly the style I was looking for.

Gayle is extremely professional and very reasonably priced for the Bay Area market. I contacted several people on line to get quotes. Some of them never returned my inquiries, and others either did not appeal to me, or seemed overpriced. While you want your hair to look good on your BIG DAY, you also don't want to spend an arm and a leg, considering all the other expenses you deal with on the big day!

Gayle spent a lot of time with me at my intial consult trying to determine the best style for my face. I had a few ideas, but she ultimately came up with the final style. I never felt like I was taking up her time or inconveniencing her; she was patient and I could tell she really wanted to get it right. She took pictures and sent them to me so I could decide what I liked best. This was really helpful, as you soon forget what you even did that day once you leave the consult. She also asked for pictures of my bridesmaids and contacted them individually about what sort of hairstyles they wanted. This was really helpful, and it was one less thing I had to worry about. Gayle was also very responsive and accomodating with last minute changes.

On the day-of, she was on-time and stayed on schedule. She even provided hair decor for the bridesmaids that had elected not to get their hair professionally done. Not only would I highly recommend her, but my bridesmaids said they'd highly recommend her for weddings in the Bay Area. Gayle is awesome and she did a great job on my hair. Thanks Gayle!

Gayle was a pleasure to work with, the most reasonable and completely flexible and able to squeeze my wedding in at last minute. My bridesmaids even commented on how thorough she was with the pre-wedding information she gathered and styles she planned out. She did a great job on all of our hairstyles for the day! My only concern was making sure we were in sync w/ the date and time. Everything worked out extremely well.

Gayle was fantastic from the beginning. Not only did she do great hair for myself and my wedding party, my hair stayed put throughout the evening.

So hair styling is wonderful and she was completely professional in all of her correspondence and interaction. She was always on time and has a great personality. It was so nice to be with her the day of my wedding. My stress level was going through the roof so it was great to have someone as flexible and calm as Gayle. I will absolutely use her again if I need my hair done for any reason.

Gayle was amazing. She was so incredibly flexible for the trials. I was having a hard time figuring out what I wanted for my hair and we ran out of time to test the make up that day. She was so great at scheduling a second trial and working with me to figure it out.

My sister decided at the last minute to also get make up and, again, Gayle was flexible with that.

On the day of the wedding, we were running a little later than expected because my hair was not cooperating. Instead of trying to cram it in before the limo came, Gayle got into her car and followed us to the church to help us finish getting ready. It meant so much to me that she put in this extra effort. She was really great to work with and I would very highly recommend her to anyone.

On a side note, one of the reasons that I chose Gayle is that she could give me a little more natural style. I wanted my hair done, but I didn't want to look like my hair was plastered together that morning and she executed that very well. Plus my make up stayed on all night without a single touch up!

Thanks Gayle!!

Gayle was wonderful- I had no worries when it came to my hair because I was confident in Gayle after our consultation. She is very personable and easy going and definitely talented in the hair department. She also did my maid of honor's hair (my sister) and my mom's hair and both came out beautifully. I would highly recommend her because having Gayle was one less thing for me to stress about the day of! Thanks!

Gayle was awesome - she did my hair & makeup as well as 2 bridesmaids. She was very responsive to my opinions, and very attentive. She did a great job - we all received many compliments on how lovely our hair/ makeup looked. The makeup looked great in the pictures, too - no pastiness or shininess even after a long day. I'd definitely recommend.
