  • “Lauren did my bridal make up and hair for myself, plus my two bridesmaids. There was clear communication, and Lauren understood my vision.

    Lauren is a really lovely person, easy to work with and helped me stay calm and relaxed on the morning of the wedding. Most importantly, she made me feel and look beautiful!! She was flexible and was able to adapt to last minute changes to my bridesmaids hair. We all loved the make up and the hair!”
