So I have 8 more months until my wedding (Yay), but already I can tell that I am going to have an amazing experience working with Michelle and her wonderful team at the Pink Comb Salon! Prior to contacting them, I was struggling with a salon that I had previously used before and walked away feeling totally mistreated! I always envisioned that the hair and make-up process would be such a fun and exciting experience! After meeting with the wonderful team at Pink Comb, I realized that I was right! Michelle and her team have already made me feel so welcomed (as well as my mom) and comfortable with all that they had to share and offer!! I absolutely love the make-up trial I had so far, and my mom's hair trial came out beautiful!! I can't wait until my wedding day to know that I am going to have my hair and make-up done by such a talented, caring, and wonderful team of people! Thank you to all the girls at Pink Comb who have already made feel so beautiful!!
Michelle and her team are AMAZING. They are the most personable people you would ever meet. I loved having her get me and my girls ready and her work was perfect, modern and not over done. Each one of my girls had a different style that totally suited them. I will continue to go to her salon to get my hair done because she is the BEST!!
After spending time with Michelle at her so cute salon for my trial, I knew that she would do an amazing job on my hair and make up on my wedding day. And she did!!! Michelle and her adorable sister, Marena, showed up early to my apartment on the morning of my wedding. Within 3 hours, they did hair and make up for my 3 bridesmaids, my mom, mother-in-law, and me. Everyone looked fabulous and each person was really happy with how they looked. I got so many compliments on my hair and make up and everything held up so nicely for the entire evening, something I had worried about. It was a joy to spend what could have been a stressful morning with Michelle and Marena. They are so calm and patient and really listen to what you want. It was like hanging out with old friends who really know who to do hair and make up. Definitely use Michelle for your wedding--you won't be sorry!!!!
Michele and Rosalie. I can't say enough as to how great you made my day start out. I was initially booked with another salon previous to booking Michele. This previous salon was a disaster for many reasons on top of booking 3 weddings on the same day in addition to mine. I was previously booked with this salon for a year prior to my wedding until I went for my 2nd trial and hated it. Anyway....thank god I save everything. I had information on Michele from my initial search for hair and makeup. One month before my wedding, when this disaster happened, I contacted Michele for a trial. She took me in right away. Michele's hair and makeup blew the previous salon's service out of the water. Not only was Michele kind and accommodating, she did an outstanding job. I booked her immediately. She is like Johnson's baby shampoo....no more tears. I was able to get excited again about my upcoming wedding. On the day of, Michele had breakfast waiting for myself, my mom and my girls. Michele began working on the makeup of my bridal party, while Rosalie worked on the hair. All of the girls were sooooo soooo happy with the outcome! My mom and my sister who are pretty picky also were very happy! They looked amazing! Michele then worked on my hair and makeup and wow!!! I was so thrilled. She did an awesome job. My day was a little rainy and my hair held up. The makeup was incredible and what pictures I've seen thus far, it looked....I looked...incredible. Michele....and Rosalie.....you are my heros and I am so thankful to have crossed your paths! If I still lived in New Jersey, I would definitely come to your salon for my haircuts!!!!!! I love you guys! Thank you!!!
Michelle is a wonderful person and incredibly talented. I went to Michelle with little idea of what I wanted for my wedding day. Michelle was super patient and helpful, offering professional advice and trying our different styles. And finally, we came up with an absolutely beautiful, soft and elegant style. Exactly what I was looking for. Michelle was truly amazing and I highly recommend her services. She is personable, talented and professional.
Michelle is great and her Salon Pink Comb is adorable.. her and her staff are friendly and efficient.. they arrived at my hotel the day of the wedding prepared and got myself as well as 4 other of my bridesmaids, two moms and a grandmother done in record time.. everyone was happy with their hair.. my mother got her makeup done which looked very nice although I think Michelles real niche is hair and not make-up. I did a make up trial with her and was not happy, she couldnt really get the look I was going for but hair.. she is the hair QUEEN
I can't say enough good things about Michelle and her staff at the Pink Comb Salon. I have really really long curly hair and I'm always nervous about going to someone new for cuts/styles. Michelle came highly recommended to me and I'm so glad she did!!...From the beginning Michelle was wonderful, always responding to my emails and answering all of my questions. I had my trial at the Pink Comb about 2 months before my wedding. Michelle was patient and friendly and made me feel totally comfortable. I knew I was in great hands for my wedding day. The morning of my wedding, Michelle and her sister arrived at my house prompt and on time. They were totally sweet and professional and worked great with my makeup artist. Michelle did my hair and between her and her sister they also did my bridal party (6 girls). I absolutely LOVED my hair as did all of my girls. All of our styles lasted the entire night and even into the next day. Michelle is truly talented and I can't say enough great things about her work, her professionalism and her bubbly personality. I now go to the Pink Comb for all of my haircuts and I'm still just as happy with Michelle every time. Michelle and her staff are truly amazing and I highly recommend them to everyone!!
Michelle (and Rosalie) did a fantastic job on the hair for 10 people for my August wedding. It was amazing how quickly they were able to get that many people looking their best. I went for a trial with Michelle about a month before my wedding, and while she did a great job recreating the look from the picture I brought it, I just didn't like the way it looked on me. I decided to go for something a little more natural, and wear my hair down with soft curls. Michelle assured me that she would be able to give me the look I want, and the day of my wedding, my hair turned out gorgeous and natural. Even after sleeping on the curls, everything still looked great the morning after! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michelle to anyone.
I had a HUGE wedding party of 12 girls and was really concerned about hair and makeup running late. Michelle thought through a schedule that allowed plenty of time and even ended up finishing almost an hour ahead of schedule! It was such a relief to have a hair stylists who were able to create exact replicas of pictures my bridesmaids brought in, but also able to create their own gorgeous hair styles on bridesmaids who weren't sure what they wanted. Michelle and her assistant were super sweet and really helped to make the day stress free. I can't thank her enough!!! =)
Michelle was wonderful to work with! From the trial to the actual wedding day, I really felt like she tried to make me happy and she gave me a wedding hair style that looked perfect for my dress and flattered my face. I appreciate the fact that she traveled to me on the big day and honestly did not leave until I was completely sure that I loved the look. I had met her originally when she did my friend's wedding and even then I knew I would have her for mine. My sister when she eventually gets engaged feels the same exact way!
Michelle was amazing! Before my wedding, I went to her for a hair and makeup trial. While it looked great, I changed my mind on the look I wanted, and went back in for a second trial. She really took the time to listen to what I wanted, and stayed true to what I had asked.
On the afternoon of my wedding, she and Rosalie arrived at my hotel on time and got right into gear! They not only did my hair and airbrush makeup, but also makeup for one of my bridesmaids, 4 bridesmaids updos, the flowergirl's hair, my mother's hair and makeup, and my grandmother's hair. Each girl chose their own look, and they carried out their requests perfectly. EVERYONE was ecstatic with the results, and looked flawless all night long.
She's sweet, professional, and fun. Definitely the type of personality you'd want around on your wedding day; and since she's young, she fit right in with me and my girls.
Some hair & makeup artists make you look over-done. The best part of Michelle's work was that I still looked like me, just a bit more glamorous!
I am a wash 'n go type of girl- I really don't wear much (or any) makeup on a daily basis and usually just let my hair air dry. So, I was nervous about feeling "overdone" on my wedding day and not looking like myself. I booked a trial with Michelle after getting her business card from my dress store in Chatham, and brought in plenty of pictures of brides with natural-looking makeup. I wanted an updo, but nothing too huge. Michelle did a great job at the trial and again at the wedding. A huge compliment to Michelle: my brother-in-law later told me he was worried I wouldn't look like myself and would be wearing too much makeup. But, when I walked down the aisle and he saw me he thought, "That's Katie!" I looked like myself on my wedding day, which was very important to me. And I loved my hair and makeup! Everything held up throughout the night. Michelle also gave me some makeup tips- since then I've been wearing a bit more eye makeup daily after I saw what she did and loved it.
Additionally, I just recommended Michelle to my cousin's fiancee with rave reviews.
I have very thick, difficult hair, so I was a bit worried about finding someone to create my perfect wedding look. When I came across Michelle's website and read reviews, I realized that she would be perfect. I booked her before doing a trial and was very happy that I did. I happy with the trial that I did with her and only had her make a few small changes for the big day. She happily made those changes and I LOVED my hair for my wedding! I got so many compliments on it and it felt great all day and night. Michelle and Marena also provided hair services for my mother and 6 of my bridesmaids, all looked beautiful!
I also go to Michelle for my hair cuts and she did my highlights before the wedding. She is a great stylist and I highly recommend her!
I cannot rave enough about my entire experience with Michelle and the Pink Comb Salon Staff. When I was planning my wedding, I decided to contact Michelle based on the fabulous reviews posted on numerous wedding websites. After my first encounter, I completely understood why there were so many fabulous reviews. From the very beggining, Michelle made me feel completely comfortable and assured that my hair and makeup would be perfect on my wedding day. She was extremely professional, knowledgable, and very profecient in her styling abilities. My hair trial was more than I expected and from then on, I knew that I had absolutely nothing to worry about regarding my hair and makeup for the big day. I absolutely loved the way I looked on my wedding, and my bridesmaids looked gorgeous as well. I now go to Pink Comb salon for my regular hair needs and my best friend booked her for her wedding this spring!
What can I say? Michelle already made a name for herself here on the knot and there's a proven reason why. I am very hard to please when it comes to my hair and from the get-go, I knew I wanted soft curls for my wedding. I've seen Michelle's work and I was pretty confident that she will be able to do the specific curls" I wanted for my wedding. I went for my trial in March and I was very happy with my hair. I was worried during the first hour after my trial was done as they looked a little tight but she guaranteed me that they will loosen up after a few hours. Michelle knows BEST and I got home and she was right - My hair looked gorgeous!
On the wedding day, Michelle and her assistants all came on time. They were there before I woke up. That's professionalism right there. It was 23 of us in total and we were all finished by 11 when she started at 630. How is that even possible? They really did an amazing job! I felt so bad though that I didn't get the chance to feed them. I know I asked someone to bring them food, I just don't remember who =( Noone's fault since we were all busy that day but Michelle was so nice and understanding. Thanks so much.
Pros: Michelle's rate is very reasonable. She's young and fashionable so I was confident that she will make me and my girls look glamorous.
Michelle did my hair for both my wedding and my sister's wedding, and I could not be happier. All of the girls loved their hair- instead of doing the traditional (and boring) updo-with-tendrils, she made sure that each girl had a gorgeous unique style. I loved my sister's hair (kind of half-up with sort of a 1940s Old Hollywood Glamour look) almost as much as I loved my half-up style with curls down my back. My husband (avidly watching from over my shoulder) insists that she was worth every penny.
Michelle traveled (in snow!) to my hotel room, and was there on time. She did 8 girls (one bride, six bridesmaids, and one step-mother-of-the-bride) in record time, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. It was almost like a brunch party! My hair lasted from 10am until that night when I reluctantly disassembled it after/during a bath. It survived the removal of my veil just fine, and always looked great and never stiff. When I had my hair trial, I slept in it and my hair still looked good the next day! I hope that I have an excuse to go back to Michelle in the future. Highest recommendation!
(Quick note: she has the most adorably pink salon! It's like stepping into cotton candy, but in a good way. :)
Michelle is amazing and extremely talented! I got married in an area I was unfamiliar with and I had a hard time finding a salon I could trust, so I was thrilled to find Michelle for my wedding day hair. I showed her several pictures at my hair trial and she was able to transform me into the exact bride I wanted to be! She did my hair, my mom's and 5 bridesmaids the day of my wedding. Everyone was thrilled with the results. Her sweet and bubbly personality were a welcome bonus to her talent and she was a joy to work with on my wedding day. I highly reccommend Michelle!
I am originally from New Jersey but I live in Florida now, so it was very difficult to find and feel comfortable with a salon. I called around and never really got the feeling that I was going to be handled professionally or as a priority. I was not only concerned with myself but with my ten bridesmaids, who for the most part were out of town. I needed to find a place that would take all of us and do a great job. I was very nervous because your hair and bridesmaids hair, is such a big deal on your wedding day. At a wedding that I attended a friend mentioned Michelle and I went to see her at her salon and loved her sense of style and understanding of what I wanted. The day of my wedding, my hair was even better than I imagined and everyone raved. Not only was my hair great, but all the bridesmaids looked great and felt great. The best part was Michelle came to us. All of the girls including myself were able to relax, eat, talk and take pictures. Those were special hours that all the girls were able to bond and get excited. Michelle is very professional and talented, and as a former bride, trust me professionalism is very important. It is the one day you want zero surprises. Michelle is someone you can count on, that will also make you laugh and feel calm. She truly has a gift and I am yet to see a hairstyle she has done that isn't incredible. I can't wait to get my photos so I can show just how great my hair was.
It's been 4 months since my wedding and I am still thinking about how Michelle Lo Conte saved my day. I hired Michelle to do all of the makeup for my wedding but hired someone else to do my hair. 2 hours of trying to do my hair and a burn from a curling iron later- I realized my mistake. Lucky for me, Michelle was able to step in and fix my hair. Not only that but she did it in 10 min!!!
Everyone at the wedding loved my hair and makeup. Michelle made me feel beautiful and truly saved my day!!
Michelle is awesome. She did my hair and 7 of my Bridesmaids and flower girl for my 10/25/08 wedding. She was on time, and everyone looked amazing. Michelle also has a great personality and is so much fun to work with. I could not be happier with how everything turned out for my wedding. If you want to look and feel phenomenal, book Michelle!
Michelle is incredible! She came with 2 assistants and they did hair and makeup for 10 people. Everyone looked amazing... she did an amazing job on me. I still have people tell me how beautiful I looked and it was all because of Michelle. My hair was stunning and my make up made me look like a doll. There is not 1 bad thing to say about her or her assistants. I will be recommending her to all my friends when they get married. =)
Finding someone to do your hair for your wedding to me is one of the most important things when it comes to wedding planning. The person doing your hair is responsible for making you feel and look beautiful on one of the most important days of your life! I found Michelle Lo Conte/ I Do Hair & Makeup through numerous reviews and recommendations through different wedding websites and decided to go for a trial. She gave me her full attention and worked with the look I was trying to achieve and I was blown away with the results! My look for my wedding was everything I hoped for and my style lasted past my wedding day and night into the after party! I can't thank her enough for making me look my best on my wedding day. She also had worked with my bridal party and all my girls looked beautiful! I'm so happy I came across her reviews while planning my wedding. I now go to her salon in Nutley NJ, The Pink Comb, for all my haircuts, styles and color. Her salon is beautiful with her decor, clean, and relaxing! Couldn't ask for a better experience!
Michelle and her crew were absolutley fabulous. My girls and me of course looked so incredible! She was on time and really made me feel comfortable. Though I lost it right before the ceremony, my makeup did not smudge or run! We all just looked so great and the pictures speak for themselves. If you want to have the best look for your wedding go with Michele for sure!
I actually met Michelle LoConte when she did my hair and make-up for my friend’s wedding as I was a bridesmaid. I knew right then and there I wanted to hire Michelle for my wedding day, which was only 6 months away. Michelle was super patient during my hour-long curling session! Below is a picture of my hair Michelle did for my friend’s wedding. My curls stayed all day long; she did an amazing job! Michelle LoConte will ALWAYS come highly recommended from me to anyone that is looking for a hair/make-up artist!! She’s phenomenal!
Michelle Lo Conte was my make-up artist for the day of my wedding. She was prompt and fun. I asked her to make me look a bit dramatic, not an everyday type of look. She did exactly as I asked. Since my groom's hair and mine are so jet black and the princess dress I wore was snow white, the make-up helped to bring out all my dark features. At first my bridesmaids said to go soft and girly, but I didn't want that . Michelle mentioned that usually brides don't go for the dramatic look, but she thinks it shows more of what she can really do with make-up. She was right and at the end of the night when the wedding felt like I was out at a NYC club atmosphere my make-up looked as amazing as it did when she first put it on. I even sent Michelle a picture that my friend took...in the picture I was banging the bongos at my wedding and my eye make-up was phenomenal...if I would have gone for the soft look my make-up would have never looked that great!!!! i would recommend her to every bride!!! No need to look elsewhere for a make-up artist!!!
What can I say here except She did AMAZING work. It was my mother, two sisters and myself. Michelle worked on my youngest sister first and she loved her hair. My middle sister turned into Bridesmaidzilla when she looked in the mirror and decided that her hair was leaning too far to the left (it was). Michelle was patient and repositioned the starting ponytail (without taking anything down) and fixed my sisters hair until it was perfect. For my mother, Michelle did an amazing amazing job. I hope I can get pictures of this from someone but here is the story – my mother is a cancer survivor and was treated with radiation on her brain and chemo. She lost all of her hair (4 years ago) due to this. It has since grown back but it is above her shoulders and VERY thin and that is being generous. My mother is a hairdresser by trade and refused to wear a wig. She didn’t like the way they fit, felt, or looked and I couldn’t blame her. She told Michelle that she thought that just curling her hair would be best – and it WAS! Michelle used a curling iron and made small curls all over. She positioned some of the curls to cover the thinner spots of my mothers hair and when she was done, my mother looked fantastic! That in itself could have made me cry that day.
For my hair, I gave Michelle a picture and she replicated it almost exactly. I was super happy with my hair and it stayed up all night long perfectly. She started around 9:30am and was done with everyone by about 11:45am.
As a side note – I never went for a trial and I never spoke to Michelle (we emailed back and forth) until the day before the wedding. She is an absolute sweet heart!
EXCELLENT! Michelle and her assistant did my hair and makeup, as well as the hair and makeup of my five bridesmaids and my mother. I have very oily skin and the makeup she used didn't let any shine get through the entire day. Also, despite the humidity, my hair never frizzed up and the style held all day. My sister has very fine hair, and the style I chose for the girls stayed in her hair all day thanks to Michelle. Also, when we did my trial for the makeup and hair, about two hours after I got home the eye color she chose turned a terrible shade due to the oils in my skin - she had me come in a week later for a second trial no questions asked, and called the next day to make sure everything held up fine. She really cares what her brides look like, and wants them all to be happy. Working with her was so easy and so much fun, too. On the day of the wedding she showed up at 9 am ready to go, and it was like a big slumber party - all of us talking, laughing, and dancing to the radio! I'd recommend her to anyone - she's very professional and makes you look amazing on your special day!
She did my best friends hair for her wedding and was so fantastic I knew I had to have her for mine as well.
I went to her for a trial and gave her a picture of what I wanted... and she nailed it down to the very last strand of hair. I couldn't believe how perfect it looked!!
The day of my wedding she was on time (even a few minutes early) and totally blended in with me and my girls!!
All of my bridesmaids gave her a picture of what they wanted and every single one of them commented on how perfectly their hair matched the picture they brought with them.
Not only that, at the end of the night my hair (along with my bridesmaids) were completely intact!
On a scale of 1 to 10 I give her a 20.
She surpassed all of my expectations and I highly recommend her to any bride!!
She and her two assistants did hair and makeup on 11 people and every single one looked beautiful! They were on time-in fact, early- and were very organized which helped keep everyone on time. My very very very fine hair stayed in beautiful curls all day. She made me feel very beautiful! Also, she always responded quickly to emails during the planning process.
I booked Michelle a year and a half from my wedding date. That should tell future brides how amazing she is. She is so sweet and really knows how to make your vision come true.She is excellent with getting back to clients who e mail or call her which, counts for a lot in the wedding vendor business.
I have super thin hair and to make my dream wedding hair even better she she made extensions for me and she dyed my hair to match them. She went above and beyond for me and my bridesmaids. Our hair lasted all night and everyone was asking who did our hair.
She is a master of hair! I have curly hair to begin with and I wasn't sure I could have ever have "wedding day hair" but she managed to work with it and turned me into a greek goddess. At least that's what many people told me on my wedding day. She came as early as I needed her and in no time at all she did my hair and the hair of my bridesmaids and we were so happy with the outcome. I can't say enough about how good she is with hair and how easy it was to work with her. Any bride-to-be would be lucky to be able to book her for their wedding day.
Michelle Lo Conte and her assistants from I Do Hair Makeup did a wonderful job with hair and makeup on my wedding day. They traveled to my hotel at no extra charge and were so great! All of my bridesmaids loved that way thier hair and makeup turned out and everyone complimented me on how beautiful I looked on my wedding day. I highly recommend Michelle Lo Conte and her assistants from I Do Hair and makeup.
I had no idea what I wanted to do with my hair or make-up. I had a couple of random pictures of some looks I liked and Michelle was able to make me beautiful with what I gave her. I loved my hair and make-up and I got so many compliments about them both. I was pretty nervous getting ready for the wedding and Michelle made me feel so comfortable. I would recommend her without hesitation!
Michelle did a FANTASTIC job. Everyone had pictures, some girls 2 or 3, and wanted different things from each picture incorporated into their hairdo. Michelle replicated it perfectly. Everyone looked gorgeous and was so happy with the way their hair turned out. Besides me, 2 of my bridesmaids got 1/2 up 1/2 down, my MOH got an updo, and the 2 mothers got blowouts. She arrived a little after 10 and we were done by maybe 1:30'ish? I've kind of blacked out a couple of hours of the wedding day, LOL. If you can get Michelle for your wedding day, don't hesitate, she is awesome.
First off, my make up was amazing! She did exactly what I had requested...for me to have the natural look. I also had my hair done along w/ most of my bridesmaids...and we were satisfied w/ her work. So satisfied that even my bridesmaids are recommending her to future brides!
Michelle has helped myself, my sister-in-law and 2 friends get ready for "the big day". She and her staff are professional and courteous. They showed up on time and always came fully prepared. Let us not forget what a terrific job they did with our hair and make-up. My maid of honor was so impressed that she hired Michelle for her wedding in April. All you have to do is tell Michelle what you want, and she makes it all happen. She's very good at what she does. I would certainly recommend Michelle to anyone who needed fantastic results for hair and make-up. She is simply marvelous!!
What a talent! She is extremely gifted and has the patient of a saint. I went to a trial w/ Michelle and loved my hair so much I booked her that instant. She took my vision and went above and beyond what I had thought it would look like. She is extremely professional, yet has such a bubbly personality that it didn’t feel like a vendor was doing my hair but someone that fit in and felt like a family member or friend amongst the commotion of the typical wedding morning. She worked her magic and made everyone look extraordinary and also made me feel at ease and most importantly look absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking for a unique, classy hairstyle for the big day. Hands down one of my most favorite vendors!
I hired Michelle to do the hair styles for my wedding in May of 2007, and Michelle and her team did an excellent job! Looking at my wedding album and video, I am constantly wow-ed by the hairstyles. I had a bridal party of 6 bridesmaids and two young flower girls (in addition to myself and my mom), and all 10 of us looked fabulous thanks to Michelle!
Michelle was professional, arrived right on time the day-of, and efficiently made sure everyone's hair was completed in ample time. She is amazing with hair of all types and textures, and knows what it takes to ensure that styles hold for long periods of time. It was very apparent when working with Michelle that she is extremely experienced in the wedding business.
I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for an amazing wedding stylist!
Michelle was absolutely *super* to work with. She had everything I was looking for in trying to find someone to make me look beautiful on my special day. She does BOTH hair and make-up superbly and she travels to YOU on your wedding day. I thought it was a great concept to have to worry about going to a salon on that day. I also loved that she was able to do air-brushing on my face for make-up. I got so many compliments on my hair and make-up it was incredible. Michelle helped me feel at ease during the stress of getting ready and did a wonderful job of covering up my blemishes that came out due to stress! Nobody ever noticed since the make-up job she did was so fantastic. I highly recommend her! She was one of my favorite vendors!
When I was searching for a hairstylist for the day of the wedding I was really having some bad luck. I wanted something very simple and romantic looking and when I explained what I wanted to hairstylists they nodded with a smile on their face and proceeded to do something completely in the opposite direction of what I wanted. I was honestly about to settle on a hairstylist who was ok but wasn’t great when someone recommended that I contact Michelle. From the second I contacted her and spoke with her about what I wanted I had complete faith in her and booked her without having a trial. It was a risk I was willing to take. I had seen pictures of her work and had heard great things about her so, to me, it was really a no brainer. They day of my trail came and she really got it. She knew exactly how I wanted my hair and we had the same vision about the style and the look which was great! I thought the trial was amazing but my hair for the day of the wedding was out of this world! I received so many compliments and I just couldn’t believe what she had accomplished, not only for me but for my whole bridal party. We all looked exceptionally beautiful. She works in a completely efficient manner and is the epitome of a professional at such a young age. She is an amazing talent and I am so glad I found her when I did. She is a complete talent and has become a great friend. She cares about her clients and really listens to what they are saying when they tell her what they want.
Hiring Michelle was one of the best decisions I made during the whole wedding process. She is very professional and talented.
On my wedding day, Michelle and her assistant arrived early and kept everyone on time and calm. The hair and makeup lasted all day (only a little lip gloss repair needed). Everyone kept commenting on how great my hair and makeup was. Thanks Michelle!
Get her for your wedding—you won't be sorry!
Michelle & Michelle (A+++++)
Thank you so much for my amazing hair style. I love how it came out and I got compliments on it all day and night. It was just what I wanted. Thank you so much for making all my girls and my mom look beautiful. Everyone loved their hair and your assistant Michelle was awesome too. It was so much fun having you with us getting ready. My hair lasted all night and so did the girls.
Michelle is truly amazing!! I can't believe how quickly and beautifully she is able to style hair! She can literally replicate a picture that you give her of any hairstyle! My hair is very long and does not normally curl very well, and I wanted my hair all down with long loose curls. My regular hairdresser said it wasn't really possible because my hair is too heavy and it would fall out. Michelle was able to do exactly what I wanted. It came out so perfect!!! I got so many compliments on my hair during and after the wedding! The curls held really well throughout the whole night! Michelle and her assistant did my hair as well as my mother's and my 7 bridesmaids and one flower girl. They did it all in just a few hours!! Everyone's hair looked beautiful! I really can't say enough about her. Ifyou are looking for a specific hairstyle and don't think you can do it, believe me she will be able to do it!
I booked with Michelle after my family's hair stylist told me she would no longer be able to do my hair for the wedding. Michelle was very friendly and responded to all correspondence quickly and professionally. I didn't have a hair trial with her before the wedding but on the day of, I showed her a picture and she recreated it perfectly. She also did the hair of my two sisters and mother. my mother is a cancer survivor who lost all of her hair to chemo treatments. She refuses to wear a wig and although her hair has grown back it is not nearly as full as it used to be. Michelle was patient and did a very beautiful job on my mother. Who was overwhelmed with how great she looked. I CANNOT thank Michelle enough for the job that she did on my wedding day.
Michelle was amazing. She worked very well with my make-up artist and did myself, my mom, sister and a bridesmaid in a very short time with all of us looking amazing. Michelle did a wonderful job matching my hair style with the look I was going for and making me look like an elegant bride. She really is incredible with her up-dos.
I loved Michelle! She is perfect at what she does. I loved both of my hair trials with her & my wedding day hair was fabulous. I also went to her salon & got highlights put in before the big day. She is such a sweet person & loves getting to know her clients. I am so happy that I booked her. You will be in great hands if you use her.
Michelle was my hair dresser for my May 27,2007 wedding. I was highly impressed with her work and would have no doubts about recommending her to other brides. She is very creative and was able to capture the vision I had for my hair with no difficulty. She is able to take a picture of a hairstyle and masterfully re-create it. She is also highly efficient - she provided updos for 5 of my bridesmaids as well, and was right on schedule the entire morning. Perhaps most importantly, all 6 of our updos lasted impeccably. We all danced the night away and none of us had problems with the updos not holding up!
First off I loved my hair!!!!! When I first went in for my trial I had no idea what I wanted to do for my wedding, Michelle did a great up do for me, but later I decided that I wanted something different. After searching online I found a bride whose hair I loved and emailed that picture to Michelle. She said that she would be able to do it, and also told me to buy hair extensions so that the look would be even more fantastic. Soon after I bought the extensions I went in for a second trial and it came out amazing!! The hair for my wedding was exceptional and I had many guests tell me all night how amazing the style was. She must have done a great job because since my wedding many of her clients have chosen to have their hair styles just like mine!!
Michelle and her two assistants did hair and make-up on twelve people on my wedding day...they were early, prepared and energetic! I cannot say enough great things about Michelle. She created a beautiful head full of curls on my hair that never curls (perms don't even stay in!) I didn't have a regular hair stylist before I hired Michelle for the wedding and she has been doing my hair since the wedding and it has been two years. I HIGHLY recommend her!!!
I loved my trial andshe just worked with me every step of the way. She was amazing to dealwith throughout this entire process. I even went to her 6 weeks beforethe wedding to have her dye, highlight and cut my hair so it lookedperfect for the wedding day. She arrived at my house perfectly on time,finished my 2 bridesmaids, mother and me in time for everything.The morning of my wedding I wasn't feeling so well and she worked with me to give me the extra time I needed to get myself ready for hair and make-up. Michelle is just awesome. I highly suggest her!
I have now had the distinct pleasure of knowing for about 3 years. Michelle did my wedding hair and makeup in October 2005. I originally found her through searching the message boards on another website and she came highly recommended. From trial, to wedding day, and now to my haircuts/highlights, Michelle is someone I simply adore! She is a professional in every sense of the word and just the type of presence anyone would want to have around on a wedding day. Her demeanor is calm, patient, and warm, and she shows a real expertise in what she does. A lot of brides may want to befriend her after -- she's just the type of person to easily connect with! Be sure to check out her new place Pink Comb Salon in Nutley. I'll be making the drive over there!
got married May 20th, 2005 and used Michelle. Her and her assistant Jen did Me, my 7 Bridesmaids and my Mother's hair and makeup. I can not say enough great things about the work they did. She was so great to work with from start to finish. Any time I had a question or concern she got back to me and was very helpful throughout my whole engagement. I went for two hair trails and both times I was more than happy with the outcome. The day of the wedding everything went very smoothly. Everyone's hair and makeup came out beautiful. I loved my hair for my wedding!!! She did such a wonderful job my maid of honor used her as well for her wedding two years later. You will not be disappointed with Michelle. She is just amazing!
I drove all the way to NJ to have my hair and makeup trial by Ms. LoConte. She was worth the trip. I brought her several pictures of half-up hair do’s and she worked with me to get the style that matched both the elegance of the day and my fun personality. I truly never felt so beautiful. She kept my makeup light enough that I didn’t feel fake but done enough that my photos looked perfect. That was a difficult feat given I had some acne issues that day. You would never know it from the photos. I felt both beautiful and natural.
