Andrea's Hair Studio
I hired Andrea as the hair & makeup stylist for my wedding last month. She worked on myself (the bride), my mother, 2 of my bridesmaids, and my little sister-in-law (who’s 8). All I can say is that she’s AMAZING! I had a “look” I was going for, and before I met Andrea, I was about to give-up and just do my own hair and makeup. I am an extremely particular individual, and I had gone through several trials with other stylists, and no one could accomplish the “look”. I was so discouraged.
I received so many compliments that day (and still do to this day). One friend said to me, “the back of your hair…that was what my sister-in-law was going for (who had recently gotten married)…but they couldn’t get it right.” The day of my wedding, the groomsmen were up in the bridal suite helping the bridesmaids with miscellaneous wedding preparations. Later that day, when they saw my husband-to-be, they told him “You’re in trouble…she’s beautiful.” My finance said to them “I already know that. Why do you think I’m marrying her?” And they responded, “No, seriously….this is different. You’re in for it…”
The amazing thing is that after everything that was said and done, I still looked like “me”….just a more beautiful and elegant version. And I think that’s hard to accomplish.
Andrea is not only talented, but also very good at managing her work, taking feedback and directing the traffic. She had 5 women to work on that day…all by herself. She made sure to get everyone done on time, and also made sure not to lose focus on the main subject…the bride (me). We had some difficulties, which is inevitable, but she was able to handle them, meanwhile keeping focused on ensuring enough time was spent on me to help make that day perfect. In addition, after the trial run, I emailed Andrea with several pages of notes, questions and recommendations. She took ALL my feedback in, and made sure to address each one of them (which gave me additional confidence that she would be able to deliver high quality work on the big day).
She’s a sweetheart, and I really enjoyed working with her! Would definitely recommend her for the other brides out there!
