Bella Bridal Hair
Marcy was fabulous to work worth, and easy to communicate with during the planning process. It was so nice to have a talented profressional come to my house the morning of my March 2011 wedding. She is a perfectionist, and did a stellar job. Marcy even stayed until we were ready to put my veil in, and she did an amazing job of securing it & my headband for the busy day ahead. I'd recommend Marcy to any bride who wants to put their complete trust into a stylist so they can relax and enjoy!!
I found Marcy's services very helpful on the day of my wedding. My mother and bridesmaids were very pleased to receive hair services in my home the morning of the wedding, which allowed us to have a more relaxed and pleasant experience. I was very happy with the different hairstyles Marcy provided to each of the ladies.
Wonderful to stay in on the wedding morning. We were all able to relax and have a good breakfast. Hair and makeup was excellent. Marcy stayed until our bride was ready to go, and rechecked her veil and hair. Great job.
I was most worried about my hair because it's sleek, slippery, super straight, and super limp! Little did I know of the magic that is Marcy! It was clear to me that she was going to be the one to add the perfect touch to my wedding from the time i had my hair trial. She was the first and only person I saw...that's how much faith I had in her talent and confidence! Throughout the tea ceremony, church ceremony, 3 hour photo session, reception and dancing, dancing, dancing, I didn't even think about my hair having a meltdown! It felt so secure and looked so intact, but the best part was, it didn't even look like it had a million pins holding it together! It looked flawless and it stayed gorgeous till the end of the night. The way Marcy styled it was way better than I imagined. She was very accommodating to make sure it was perfect for me. My guests could not stop complementing me on my hair! I was and still am truly impressed!
The bonus to all this was that Marcy came to my house to do my hair. Since my bridesmaids were also getting their hair done, she came extra early so that we could all get ready in time for the 11 am ceremony! We all felt at ease and Marcy felt like one of our girlfriends...she's awesome!
Marcy, I can't thank you enough!!
All the best,
My up-do was exactly what I dreamed for the day of our wedding! Marcy did a fantastic job, it was classic yet creative and most importantly she made it me! I was so impressed that she was able to put all my hair up as no other stylist has been able to conquer my very long and thick hair before. Marcy also did all four of my bridesmaid?s hair and did an excellent job of bringing out the personalities and style of each of the girls?they looked beautiful.
I also would like to mention the convenience of having Marcy come to my house as oppose to going half across the city to a salon. All my bridesmaids were from other provinces and states, so it was really nice for all of us to just wake up and relax and have our hair done at home together and not to have to be anywhere until we left for the ceremony! Marcy made it a great experience for me and the girls, her outgoing personality fit right in and made the day even more special!
Marcy was so easy to work with and provided excellent service. I decided that I would wear a human hairpiece to make my updo more voluminous and Marcy offered to take it before the wedding day so that she could come on the wedding day with the hairpiece already set. She did a fabulous job of my hair, and the hair of my entire wedding party and mothers/grandmothers. The flower girl's hair was so perfect for the day. I would highly recommend Marcy for your wedding day!
Bella Bridal was perfect for my wedding day and she added that personal touch and friendly & calm nature I needed in the comfort of my home on my wedding day! Highly recommend...
If your looking for the wow factor delivered in a stress-less way, Marcy will do just that!
Bella Bridal Hair gets our recommendation.
Bella Bridal Hair is great for the wedding day hair style. We can highly recommend Bella Bridal Hair for your special event!
I will go anywhere within the city limits of Calgary for free. Outside the city limits there is a fee per km.
I strongly suggest that you have your hair completely dry the day of the wedding for anyone needing a long hairstyle. If your hair is in anyway damp, your style may be limp and not last. (For short hair styles I will be blowdrying it anyway). Also, it is good to have a button up shirt so that you don't ruin your hair!
Do you have a minimum fee?
Yes, my minimum fee is $300. That would be the bride plus at least 2 other people requiring up dos.
What if I want a certain hair style but I don't have enough hair?
I do sell hair extensions! There are 10 pieces that clip in. They are real hair that comes in 14" or 18" hair lengths. They can be cut, colored and curled to suit your needs. There are many colors to choose from! I have a swatch that I can use to match the perfect extension for you. I do carry some in stock, however if I don't have particular color I can easily order it for you, I just need at least 50% of the cost.

Marcy Panei, from Bella Bridal Hair, in Calgary has sent us this great, real life wedding anecdote and her resulting advice for all of you:
Avoiding Hair Disaster!
Having a trial up do run is one of the best investments you can make in all of your wedding planning! But more importantly doing the trial run well in advance to the wedding day is most important as you may not like what is done, and if you have the trial a week before your wedding and you aren't happy?!?!?..... YIKES!
For example, one monday afternoon, I get a phone call, a bride to be explains to me that I was recommended to her by the make up artist and that she has no stylist for her wedding day, that something happened and she no longer has a stylist and.....she is getting married on FRIDAY! (yes, in 4 days!) I immediately perk up my ears to this, "WHAT?! what happened??" I asked. "I went for my trial up do and it was a disaster!" she said.
She asked if I was available on Friday to do hair at the hotel they were staying at. I immediately said," you know what, I will make this happen, but you MUST come tonight to meet and have a trial!"
Thank goodness it worked out for her. She loved her hair and felt like a princess! It is rare that a stylist has time that soon to get things done! I work part time and fortunately for her I have mondays and fridays off! (If it were the Saturday, I wouldn't have been able to do it as I am usually booked with regular clients) I just needed my mom to come and babysit that day and away I went! It is important to me that a bride feels her best for her wedding day!
The make up artist that recommended me to her, I have only met once the morning of a brides wedding . She saw that I did great work and thought of me! It is all about networking! Don't hesitate to ask your stylist, make up artist even photographer for recommendations! They will always know someone! (thank you Elizabeth of Aria Studios for recommending me! I will surely do the same!)
