I really wanted one person to do my hair and makeup, and got perfect results with Kristen of Rare Bird Brides.
What I appreciate most was that Kristen showed a lot of patience and determination. During my first trial, she must have tried a dozen different hairstyles on me because I couldn't find one that was just right. After Kristen provided her input on what to do, it was like a Eureka moment. I should have asked her professional opinion from the beginning.
The makeup was something that took a couple of trials to do. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup, and thought I wanted to go all glam. However, I realized that was the wrong path. On the second trial, Kristen worked with me and the pictures I provided and we got the perfect look down.
On the day of the wedding, Kristen came earlier than we had discussed, which I appreciated very, very much!
When Kristen did my hair on my wedding day, I didn't think it could look even better than during my trial. Kristen is like a hair wizard. She can really work some magic.
With the makeup and lashes, my transformation was complete. I got so many compliments that day. I never felt so special and beautiful ever, and owe many thanks to Kristen!
She also did hair and make up for my Maid of Honor, and hair only for my 2 flower girls. Everyone looked beautiful as well, with plenty of time to spare before picture time! ~ALLYSON MANAOIS
