    Updos for I Do's does things a little differently than some of the other beauty teams I had gotten quotes from -- you don't get to choose your stylist, you are assigned one. This was a little nerve-wracking as many stylists widely vary in their styles and strengths, but luckily they try to keep the stylist the same from the trial to the wedding.
    Caitlin did my makeup and was a dream to work with. She was very welcoming and nice at the trial, super attentitive and very receptive to feedback/criticism. She didn't get offended when I made suggestions or had a hard time articulating that we "were close, but not quite it yet". She worked hard to find a style I liked and that went with my skin/eye/hair tone. We talked about my prefered lip and after I let it be known I didn't like gloss, she suggested a color and lip stain that would last. I was impressed by her professionalism and kindness, but her makeup skills really sealed the deal on the wedding day. She worked around a mini-breakout and flakey skin and my makeup looked stunning -- the retro-inspired but still modern look I wanted and my bridal crew and mom all loved their make up too. We were finished with plenty of time and she was (as already experienced) super sweet with my friends and family. I was very appreciative of the good experience. It was important to me that my family and bridal crew felt comfortable, welcomed, and pampered.
    Jess did amazing work on the day of the wedding. My hair mirrored the retro-glam modern look I was going for and was perfect. Even though I had dark hair, you could still see the braids and weaving she did with the style and my side bun was in the perfect spot (not too forward, not too far back, not to high, etc). I had concerns after the trial about how the finished product would look -- we had a hard time finding a style that I liked that worked, and I wasn't sure if I was still totally happy with the look after the trial, but it turned out great on the day-of. My family & bridal crew were super happy with their styles and there was a mix of up-do's, blowouts, half-downs, and slick-back styles. For the cost, Updo's for I Do's was worth it. I did like the a la carte pricing so I could decide who all wanted hair, makeup or whatever combinations vs one-size fits all packages. My mom couldn't get over that they came to us in the hotel vs having to go to a salon. Grandma was happy with her look and I was over the moon that everything turned out perfect for me and that my group felt taken care of. I would recommend Updo's for I Do's to anyone looking for a beauty team. I am very grateful for their amazing work on my wedding day!

    Pro-tip: Over communication is key on your likes & dislikes prior-to and throughout. Don't let any fears of hurting their feelings stop you from saying you don't like something -- they are professionals and should be able to receive feedback and they just want you to like your style so be assertive. I found in the chair that I had a hard time using my words to describe what I liked and didnt like about it, but tried hard to articulate it even in a jumbled sense because "I hate it" doesn't provide the feedback they need to fix it. Inspo photos are helpful to give guidance, just be realistic that you can't replicate those photos.

    Mindy was excellent at hair! I couldn't believe how fast she was getting hair done and how wonderful everyone's hair was turning out! I let Mindy just do what she thought would be best for my hair as a bride and it turned out great. I was surprised she was able to get the hump in my hair, I always struggled with that since my hair is so thin. She put my hair extensions in for me and I couldn't even tell I was wearing my hair extensions. (When I put them in my hair I am usually scratching at them all day.) I am very appreciative that she really knew what she was doing all the way through and the speed without compromising quality! Thank you again!

    Caitlin: I have never in my life met someone like her as a make-up artist. I was listening in on the conversations she was having with the girls and I don't think I have ever heard a make-up artist be so thoughtful. Almost always you get girls who are unsure about getting make-up done because its your face and you want it particular. Caitlin actually took the time to ask the girls how do they normally do their eyeliner and or what do they feel comfortable with before even putting it on. She tried to understand how you are with your make-up before she picked her approach. My make-up turned out so well I had to hold back tears. I know it sounds dramatic, but it really puts a person at ease to have great make-up to wear all day. I have been to several make-up artists before and most of the time its too dark, or my face doesn't look like my face, and they definitely don't ask me that many questions. Catilin did the most natural and yet highlighting the best parts of my face. Thank you again!
