Brides by Sonia Castleberry
Brilliant! Sonia is simply amazing at what she does. I'm a photographer and videographer who shoots weddings every weekend, and I met Sonia on a shoot when she was styling the bride's hair I was filming. I fell in love with her work and her personality and was excited to have found someone I could trust to do my hair for my wedding. I wanted a retro, old-Hollywood hairstyle - think a modern Veronica Lake style - and Sonia delivered! Everyone gushed over how awesome my hair was and all the women whose hair she styled at my wedding were thrilled with how their hair turned out. Her grandfather styled the likes of James Brown and so it's definitely in the genes. Not only is she talented, but she is very professional, responsive, accommodating and sweet. You are getting one of the best in the business when you work with Sonia. Thank you so much for helping to make my wedding even more special, Sonia. You rock!
Sonia was by my side making sure my hair was perfect in every form, and angle. I had 2 hair changes during my wedding. My first look was old hollywood glam, and the second was up, in a dramatic bouffant. Both looks were to die for. She strived for perfection, and perfection was what I got. My hair was absolutely gorge. Thank you Sonia!!
Sonia was fabulous! She was helpful, friendly, calm when things were hectic. I loved her and would recommend her to any bride.
I was planning my wedding in a very casual way. The goal was to have a small intimate wedding with great photos to last a life time. I work in the fashion industry and simply asked my co-workers for a make up recommendation. They referred me to someone who was excellent, the makeup artist asked me if i needed someone for hair.
He gave me Sonia Castleberry's information. He said she was professional and great to work with.
Honestly I called Sonia at the last minute to ask her to accommodate me. I was very indecisive about what I wanted to do with my hair and very reserved about having someone I never met do my hair. I sent Sonia some pictures of ideas I had, she intern sent some photos of her work. Sonia was very professional in our phone conversations and very patient.
On the day of my weeding I met Sonia for the first time. She was so sweet, so calm, and listened before doing anything. She assured me that she understood my needs and went to work. Sonia was GREAT.
My wedding day went off without a hitch. Everyone loved my simple and elegant bun.
I have since taken to follow Sonia on instagram and Facebook to keep to with her work. I hope to have many reasons to use her services in the future.
If you are looking for someone extremely professional, knowledgeable, and who does amazing work...Sonia Castleberry is your stylist.
Sonia was professional, prompt, and had a lovely demeanor that kept things calm, low-key, and pleasant on the big day. She did a fantastic job on the trial for my hair and was patient with me as I requested what others might consider to be unimportant changes. She clearly took my feedback seriously because on my wedding day she produced the EXACT hairstyle I had dreamed of. I had a trial with somone else before Sonia and had given that person the same exact picture and instructions but only Sonia was able to give me exactly what I was looking for. So many people commented on my hair on my wedding day and people still see my wedding picture and immediately tell me how beautiful my hair looked. Her prices were more than fair given her extensive experience, her incredible skill,and the market in which she works. She did not do a trial with my bridesmaids and on-the-spot exactly reproduced the complex hairstyles they showed her from magazines. We were all impressed with her skill, service, and professionalism. I would strongly recommend her for any bride-to-be.
I have been working on a constant basis with Sonia for over two years now. She is the consummate professional, and a master hair stylist. If you are looking for a hair stylist with a diverse styling background and a portfolio of stellar work for you big day, you have found the right person.
