lori j white
Lori is wonderful!!! I was having some other issues with my hair and makeup people and canceled there services at the last minute and so I contacted Lori and she got back to me right away and had no issue that it was such short notice. She even came by to do a trial run, which went amazing because she did exactly what I wanted!!! She really made me feel comfortable and she is extremely friendly. On the wedding day it was crazy but Lori did her thing and she made me look beautiful. I just have one advice for brides be careful with makeup/hair company's because you don't know who your getting and you don't know what there work looks like but with Lori all her work is on her website so you know what you are getting. I would recommend Lori to anyone she really listens to the bride. Thank you Lori for everything :-)
I can't say enough about what a great job Lori did with the hair and make-up for all of us on my wedding day! She brought 2 assistants with her and together they made 7 of us look amazing. I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day and a huge part of that was because of the work Lori did. The compliments on my hair were endless. People thought it was very unique and had never seen a bridal 'do' quite like it. I had two consultations with Lori before my wedding and the second was free as she wanted to make sure we had the hair and make-up worked out before the big day to avoid any unneeded stress. She has a passion for what she does and it is evident. Like others have said, she has a very calming, peaceful demeanor and will put you at ease instantly. Can't say it enough but THANK YOU to Lori and to all those looking for hair and make-up in the Vegas area, Lori is your girl!
LOVED HER! She is amazing. I sent her some inspiration pics and she helped me choose some extensions to add volume to my hair because my hair is so thin and fine. I had a little trouble with her email when I was trying to schedule my trial, but a quick phone call resolved that. She was on time for my trial and the wedding day. I was going out for my bachelorette party the day of my trial and she was sweet enough to rework my hair into a different style. On the wedding day she did my hair and makeup perfect. Of course I had a huge zit on my chin (STRESS!) and she covered it up well. My hair and makeup both lasted perfectly until I went to bed, around 2:00 AM. She is so easy to talk to and very calming. I loved working with her; she was definitely one of my favorite vendors :)
Lori was an absolute joy to work with and she made me more beautiful than I even imagined possible. I had some photos for inspiration, and she gave me EXACTLy what I wanted and pictured. The cost fo the trial, he day of, and my MOH hair and makeup was very reasonable and worth every penny. I couldn't recommend her more.
Lori did my hair/makeup for my engagement photos as well as for my wedding day. Along with her talented assistant, Nicki, she also provided hair/makeup services for my bridesmaids, my mother, and my flower girl. I can not say enough for her work. I generally wear very little makeup and she made me feel glamorous and ready for my big day.... but I still felt like myself, which was important to me. I have never felt so beautiful in my life! Lori is not only very talented and professional, she's also sweet and calming, which is what I needed on that day! :)
Lori and her assistant (whose name escapes me right now, unfortunately... sorry!) did my bridal hair and makeup, as well as the hair and makeup of my four sisters, my mom, and the hair of my two nieces for my wedding. We were all very very pleased with the quality of service and the outcome of our makeovers. I must say, we all looked stunning in my wedding pictures, and it was thanks in part to the lovely Lori and her assistant. Lori is very easy to work with, and although there was a bit of a stretch where she was not responding to my emails (just a few weeks before the wedding no less... talk about scary), it later came out that her website was acting up and her server hadn't delivered her emails to me. So my advise for brides (and this goes for any vendor that you will contract, not just Lori) is to make sure you have more then one way to get in contact with your vendor. But back to Lori's review, she did an awesome job making me look like the bride I wanted to be. I wanted the natural bride look: you know, I wanted to look like myself, only better. She did just that, all the while making me feel at ease in my crazy busy household. There are many things in your wedding that don't go the way you envisioned it, and the same happened in my wedding, where many details were not carried out as planned. However, I am very, very glad that I at least looked the way I had envisioned, which in the end is what really matters because if you look good, you feel good. Not to mention that your wedding pictures will look awesome, which is about the only thing (aside from your spouse) that you will have to see for the rest of your life on an almost daily basis. So to all those looking to look and feel fabulous on their special day, give Lori a call! Thank you so much Lori White and team for making me feel great on my special day!
Lori did my hair and makeup for my wedding on September 8, 2012. She also did my mom, sister and sister-in-law's makeup for the wedding. She is awesome! I love makeup, but I've never had my makeup professionally done. I was a little nervous because hair and makeup is such a crucial part of a bride's wedding day! The photos last a lifetime and it was important to me that I look my best. Lori exceeded my expectations and beyond! My hair and makeup turned out amazing. All night long everyone kept commenting how great I looked and there is no way I could of achieved that without Lori. She was such a pleasure to talk to and she blended in with my family perfectly. I felt like I was chatting with one of my girlfriends. I was pretty nervous before the wedding and she completely made me feel at ease. She really knows what she is doing when it comes to hair and makeup. I had long clip in extensions that I was pretty clueless on how to put in. She secured them and made it look so natural and beautiful. I explained how I envisioned my makeup for the day and she executed it perfectly as if she was reading my mind. She includes lashes with the makeup application and it made such a difference in pictures! The rest of my family that got their makeup done by Lori could not stop talking about what a wonderful experience it was. Everyone loved her! I live in So. Cal and I actually wish she lived closer so I could get my makeup done again. I would definitely recommend her!
Lori really knows how to make a girl feel pretty and glamours. She is calm and easy to work with. Furthermore, she is passionate about what she does, and her passion shows through her work.
Trial day: I showed Lori a few pictures and she listened patiently to my ideas. She then went to work and gave me a look better than in the pictures. For me, I wasn't very sure what I wanted, but Lori was creative and flexible. On the other hand, if you already have clear ideas as to what you want, I am sure Lori can replicate the look for you as well. Trial took about two hours.
Wedding day: Lori brought her assistant, and they both arrived on-the-dot. Everything went beautifully. I suggest to other brides to always get ready a bit earlier to cushion in some down-time. Wedding day gets hectic!
Lori and her assistant Jamie were incredible. Lori also includes a trial in her pricing which was awesome. She did such a great job on me and the other people in the wedding party and everyone was so happy with how they looked. Since seeing pictures I have had friends say they are using a picture of me to show their hair and make-up people how they want to look on their wedding. I had tons of compliments on my hair and makeup and how perfect it was. PLUS Lori and Jamie are super cool and fun. USE HER!!
I used Lori for my wedding on 14 May 2012.
Lori was very easy to talk to and a lot of fun which I appreciated as it was only my husband & I there to get married. Lori made me feel so comfortable as relaxed and it was like we had known each other for years.
I showed Lori a picture of how I wanted my hair to look and she made my hair look ten times better than the picture. It really looked amazing. She was also extremely gentle with my hair - no pulling, no sticking my head with bobby pins - just amazing!!
Now to my makeup. Again her work was incredible. It wasn't "caked on", it really looked natural. The colours she used really complimented my skin and made me look and feel pretty! Lori brings false eyelashes, which really set everything off. The makeup was perfect.
Everyone back home commented on how great my hair and makeup looked.
By the way, all of the above was done without a trial as we flew into Vegas on the day before. It could have gone so wrong, but as I was in Lori's capable hands, it all went so right!
Lori is a wonderful person and a fantastic hair and makeup artist and I'm so glad that I chose her for the most special day of my life.
She is truly fabulous and deserves to be recognised for the fantastic work that she does.
Obviously, I have no hesitation in recommending her services to you - you won't regret it!
Lori was amazing. I really didn't know what to expect. She listened to what I wanted (simple and natural) and give me exactly what I asked for. Not only that, but her wonderfully calm demeanor brought by stress levels down and made the experience so much easier. Everyone loved my hair and make up and I felt beautiful.
After this experience I would definitely reach out to her again just for some fun hair and make up next time I am in Vegas.
Thank you Lori!!!!
Lori rocks! She did a great job and is a true professional. I appreciated her honesty when she told me that she did not have a ton of experience with Women of Color hair. Even with that, I decided to book Lori because I enjoyed our conversation, her knowledge of the hair business and her incredible prices :-) I am very indecisive, did not articulate very well what kind of style I was going for, but nonetheless Lori was extremely patient with me. The trial didn't start off too well as I wasn't too happy with the initial style. But, remember ladies IT IS CALLED A TRIAL FOR A REASON (which I soon found out :-) After we played around and tried a few things we found THE perfect hairstyle. I LOVED IT! Lori is great at taking suggestions, tips, direction.....you name it. She has such a pleasant demeanor and is loads of fun! My bridal party and mom enjoyed joking with her while she worked on my hair. I highly recommend Lori for any bride. She listens and works hard to make sure you are happy with the way you look! Everyone, especially my new husband loved my hair. What more can I say........
Lori is an absolute sweetheart who is great at what she does! We exchanged many emails and I possibly drove her nuts but she never let on. :) I also screwed up the date for the hair trial (bride brain) and she was so gracious about it. When she did my hair trial, it was like we had known eachother for years. She worked hard to achieve the hairstyle I wanted (despite my thin and general lack of hair) and I was so happy. I loved my hair and makeup, but most of all, I loved working with Lori. She's warm and hilarious! I hope she's still doing this when my husband and I renew our vows!
I love Lori! She was so much fun to include in me and my girls morning of getting ready. She showed up on time to my doorstep and got started right away. Lori was easy to work with and welcomed my ideas as well as offered her expertise. She did both my hair and my makeup and I could not have been more pleased. Thanks to Lori my wedding party and I looked b-eaut-iful!
Lori did an amazing job for my wedding. I was coming to LV from abroad and she was able to do my test hair & make up a few days before the wedding. She had no problem coming to different hotels. On the day of the wedding, her and her Assistant, Jaime, did an AMAZING job on myself, my bridesmaids and sister. I was amazed at the different hair styles and make up choices. My make up lasted all night long and after many moments of tears. She put in my hair extensions and veil with no problems. My hair and make up was perfect. My bridesmaids and sister looks so beautiful. I highly recommend Lori and Jaime for any brides upcoming wedding.
I would absolutely recommend Lori to anyone getting hair or makeup done in Vegas. She was totally amazing! Flexible at a time when things are hectic, calm, easy to talk to, good with my girls, just all around a wonderful experience. Lori did an amazing job on my hair to a tee of what I wanted, and I even looked the same the morning after, well as close as it gets! Thank you so much Lori for everything! You made my day more special by being there.
Vendor response to review
thank you luv...the pleasure was all mine! :)
Lori was great, very professional and could understand exactly what I wanted.
Lori did my hair for our trash the dress photoshoot in Vegas. She has an amazing gift and is very talented. As someone who doesn't usually wear makeup, I was a little concerned that I would have a "caked" and unnatural look...afterall I still wanted to look like myself in the pics! But, she understood and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I felt confident, radiant, and beautiful. And, ladies...go for the false eyelashes! They're awesome.
I only wish we lived closer to Lori because she's so cool I'd like to hang with her! :)
Vendor response to review
i had so much fun with you..the time just flew by! anytime you're back in vegas, let me know.. :)
My wedding was this past weekend June 10, 2011 at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. I live in Royal Oak, Michigan, so I planned my whole wedding online. I contacted Lori last summer to set up a trial hair and make-up for me and my wedding party. Throughout the year I was able to contact Lori, emailing her ideas of the style that I liked, and she was always quick to respond. She has a calm and cool presence about her that kept me relaxed and confident throughout the morning. I appreciated her willingness to try new styles, and to blend her own style with mine. Overall, I was 100% happy with the results! Thank you Lori! :)
What can I say - she's GREAT! We started really early (5:30 AM) but my hair and make up looked great all the way through until 2 AM the next day. HIGHLY HIGHLY Recommend!!!!!
Lori White: A++
I loved my makeup!!! Lori did such an amazing job – another vendor who lives up to her rep. Todd took a photo of me in the mirror and I could not stop smiling. Lori did a beautiful job on my bridesmaid’s makeup, my niece’s hair and hair for a couple of other ladies.
Like many Vegas destination brides, I found Lori White through Wedding Wire. I looked at a few of the brides pictures who had used her and one retro hairstyle really stood out to me and looked amazing. I knew then that Lori must really have the skills to back up the great reviews.
Not only is Lori great at what she does but she is a nice person and easy to talk to too. She has a very calm demeanor which was nice when I was a little nervous on my wedding day that everything would come together.
What worked out great for me is that Lori does a practice run of hair and makeup and it's included in the price. I had Lori do this for me on Friday night and my wedding was on Sunday. My bachelorette party was Friday night so it was great to be able to have my hair and makeup done for that too! I loved it but I knew when I got all the reactions from my girlfriends that it was going to be a good look for my wedding day too.
I loved what Lori did for my hair and makeup. She is really good at her job because I have never felt or looked more beautiful than that day. I HIGHLY recommend Lori!
Lori is amazing as everyone always says she is. You will not be disappointed! Lori and her assistant did my hair and makeup on my wedding day as well as the hair and makeup for my two sisters/bridesmaids. They are so accommodating. It is so nice that they come to wherever you are. My sisters and I all loved our hair and our makeup was flawless. She doesn’t use airbrush or any sort of sealer at all, but it stayed all day and night, even through tears and dancing.
Lori is fabulous. She made me look fabulous on my boudoir shoot and my wedding day. She's such a sweetheart. She's so soft on my face and hair I almost fell asleep on the day of. It was really calming. HAHA OK. Not fall asleep but calmed my nerves down a little. Her assistant rocked it too. Rachel shout out to you, you did an amazing job on my girls. We did run late on makeup so I was about 30 minutes behind schedule. Can't blame the bride for being late. I really didn't know where the time went. Lori and Rachel were calm and patient. They truly dolled us up.
Lori was wonderful. She made me look beautiful. I don't normally wear makeup so she put on just enough makeup to make me look great without over doing it.
Lori is the best! She is very patinet and is willing to spend extra time to discuss with you about what you want/like and what fits you. She did trial to make sure the style I wanted so that I would not feel nerveous at all on the wedding day. She always answered my questions even if just little tiny stuff. Most important of all, her work is fantastic!! I felt very pretty on my wedding day!
Lori was by far my favorite vendor! Hair and makeup was very stressful as I was not having luck finding a hair/makeup vendor that met our budgetary needs. Not to mention, again, planning from the east coast made this research a little difficult since I was basically risking that whoever I booked would just work out and do the job right. Lori was very responsive from beginning to end...flexible in scheduling the hair/makeup trial. She did things I never thought possible with my hair! She made me feel like a princess! My makeup, lasted forever and a day...she also made me comfortable in trying fake eyelashes and I didn't even feel worried that they were going to come off through all the crying! My main thing was looking natural and Lori did just that but at the same time made us look amazing! Everyone was so happy with her work and I know that next time I'm in Vegas and want a makeover that I am totally contacting her!
Oh my gosh how I love Lori! I felt really comfortable with Lori as soon as I contacted her. During my hair trail we chatted easily and she made me feel confident I was going to look amazing on my wedding day. She also had no problem with changing the style before she left as I was going to meet Fi straight after and didnt want him to see.
On the day of Lori did hair and make up for me and both mothers and it all turned out fantastic. In fact my mam has contact lenses and it is the first time she has not needed to ask a make up artist to be gentle on her eyes because Lori is so gentle anyway. Lori really takes her time and makes you feel really pampered and as special as you should for you big day.
For my TTD shoot a few days later she arrived in full make up at 3.15am ready to go to work. She then spent almost 2 hours putting hair extensions in for me and totally rocked it out.
I cannot say enough good things if you book Lori you will not be disappointed.
I don't remember how much it was but I know she was worth more than I paid for her services! See my page for examples of her hair and makeup on my wedding day! I asked for "pin-up" classic glamour and she gave it to me. I don't usually look anywhere this beautiful but she is a wonder worker and I couldn't have looked more beautiful on my wedding day. I would recommend her to everyone. I think she is very professional and yet easy to talk with (like you've known her forever). I don't have very good skin (at times) and she make it look smooth and even.
AMAZING. Lori did a fantastic job. I had very high expectations as I work in the make-up world, and she was perfect. The makeup stayed well, looked great in pics, and was not heavy looking. And my hair, oh it was great. It stayed all night, slept on it and had it on the drive home. Hands down a great vendor.
Like most brides, I decided to the do trial with Lori before the wedding. Everything came out beautifully! On the wedding day she was on time and everything went exactly as planned. She has a very soft demeanor and every my Mom loved getting her hair & makeup done by Lori. She is quite possibly the very best Vegas has to offer. Book her now!
Lori = FANTASTIC! After I showed her photos of what I wanted she pulled together the best ideas from each and made it happen. I couldn't believe my hair stayed in place all night! And her makeup application was fantastic. Soft and not over-done.
Communication leading up to our wedding was only so-so (days or weeks response time), but by the day before she was returning calls within half an hour. She was so professional and calm once she arrived at the room, and we had a good time chatting. She did my hair and makeup exactly like the photos I showed her, and it all stayed put with the exception of a few strands of hair.
Lori did an amazing job at my trial and an even better job on the day of my wedding. I didn't think that was possible! She is hard to get in touch with so if you are a bride that likes a vendor that is very communicative Lori might not be for you. She did keep in very good contact on the day of the wedding and my trial, though.
Just wanted to thank you again for everything. You did such a great job
and I got so many compliments on my hair from people who were there and
people who saw the pictures. I attached a picture for you of you doing
my makeup; I thought you might want to use it for promotional stuff,
since it is a good shot of you and of the back of my hair. Let me know
if you can't download it and I will send in another format.
Thanks so much again. I really appreciate all your effort, particularly
during a difficult time for you personally. Hope all is well for you,
and remember: "no worries"!!
Hope all is well with you & things have calmed down in Vegas after the crazy day on 7/7/07!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for making me look and feel amazing on my wedding day! I've had proofs of all the photos & everyone has commented on both my hair & make up (they can't believe I scrub up so well!)
I didn't get a chance to say thank you properly on the day as we left in a bit of a hurry - we made it to the Bellagio at 3pm, I think Mike was starting to panic that I'd changed my mind!
I have one last question for you - which mascara did you use? I can't believe how long my eyelashes look in the photos, even Mike has commented on them!
Love Tiffany (the new Mrs Wright!)
I just wanted to thank you again for making me look beautiful on my wedding day! I
received sooooo many compliments and was even told I resembled Charlize Theron and Grace
Kelly! Wow! :) I will be sure and send any other brides getting married in Vegas your
way! Thought you might enjoy a few pics... Take care- Nikki
I just wanted to let you know how much I loved the job you and your assistant did with our hair and make-up. You made me feel so beautiful. I'm so glad I went with the best. Thank you so much!!!!
I just wanted to send you an email to say Thank You so much. I have never felt so beautiful as I did on my wedding day. I had so many complements on my hair and make-up all day and evening. Also thank you for helping lace me in my dress that was so sweet of you and I really appreciate it very much. You sooooo helped make it the most special day of my life. Penny
I didn't forget about you! I will send you a photo - we are ordering proofs from the chapel.
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job that you did! You made my wedding! Our friends and family loved my hair and make-up. I wanted to look like old hollywood glamour and you exceeded all of my expectations. You were excellent to work with - very professional and punctual. You were so sweet and patient which allowed me to stay calm before the ceremony. You responded to my initial emails promptly and eased my worries. I love that you include a trial in your pricing. I am so glad that I was referred to you by the glam squad. You are very talented and I wish you the best! Thank you thank you thank you!
Sorry it took so long for me to write to you!
