"Melissa and her Georgetown Bride team did hair and makeup for our wedding on May 10th, in Alexandria, VA - for all the bridesmaids, myself, and my mom. Melissa and her team did a fantastic job - everyone loved their work, and we all received so many compliments. 

I was also planning the wedding from Vietnam, so it was more difficult for us to communicate. Melissa was always flexible and patient about communication delays in general, which I really appreciated. She's a pleasure to work with, very easy-going and adaptable to meet your needs. I would highly recommend her for your event, and I would definitely go back for her services, for other events, again. Thank you, Melissa!!"

"Melissa was great! She made me look so beautiful on my wedding day and I received an abundance of compliments on my hair and makeup. She was very flexible with my schedule for the trial run and wedding day! She made it easy for me. I would highly recommend her. I will not go to anyone else after the outstanding service she provided for me."

"Melissa and staff are AMAZING! The girls looked gorgeous at the wedding. I highly recommend them. They are efficient, creative, and very organized! Thank you for all your hard work!"

"Melissa came highly recommended, but I am cynical and always want to judge for myself. My wedding was cross cultural, and my family is traditional Hindu. Melissa was able to do my hair and make up to a tee- perfectly, for a South Indian bride then switch the reception look to something more modern and playful, with a very fast turn around. She was a calming presence for a nervous bride, and even with demanding and loud family hovering at every moment, Melissa made me feel pampered, and like I was in a little oasis of my own. We had a couple of consultations, and remembered what I suggested better than I did when it came time to execute on the day of the wedding. I'm not typically appearance concious, and don't spend a lot of time on my hair and make up, but I did not feel overly painted or prodded. My hairstyle held up all night, and was still soft. My make up was pretty, and suited the occasion, but my tomboy self was still recognizable. Melissa is not only a make up artist, but she may have missed her calling as a therapist!"

"Melissa did a fabulous job on my makeup and hair and makeup for my maid of honor. She was fantastic!"

"Melissa was very responsive to my inititial inquiry about using her services on my wedding day. Since then she came to my house for the trial and was awesome working with right up to the day of our wedding. I highly recommend hiring Melissa and her team to help you get ready on your special day!"

"I can not express how thrilled and thankful I was to work with Melissa on my wedding day. She has great energy, is very professional and does an amazing job. In fact, I would venture to say that Melissa has ruined me forever because I will never again look as good as I did on my wedding day. People were so impressed by my appearance and my make-up held up all night, through the dancing, all the way to the after party. Thank you!"

"Melissa is the consummate professional, incrediblely warm and very talented. She did the makeup for my whole wedding party which included some high maintance folks and she did my hair and makeup. She did an amazing job and was so fantastic to work with. I highly, highly recommend Melissa for your wedding!"

"Melissa was excellent. As a fellow makeup artist we are the pickiest about our makeup and Melissa made me look beautiful.. She kept my makeup very natural looking but she accentuated all the right places on my face. All of my brides maids loved their face too. I love her work. 

Also I looked gorgeous through out the entire night. Pictures of me getting into the limo as I left looked just as good as the pictures of me when the day began. She was also so accommodating and friendly.. We all loved being around her and her assistant - Melanie. She even stayed longer to make sure she could finish us all even though it made her a little late for another appointment. True 5 star service and treatment!!"

"I am not the type of person to hire someone to do my makeup but Melissa was worth every penny! She was able to to do my makeup and my bridesmaids makeup in about two and a half hours. When I finally saw what my face looked like after she was finished I couldn't believe it.I have always had blemishes and she was able to make my skin look flawless and my eye makeup was amazing! I described what look I was going for which was a smokey eye and nude lips and she did my make up exactly the way I had envisioned it in my head! I was so pleased with everything and she kept touching up our makeup when needed. Everyone was impressed and my maid of honor who is getting married next year has also decided to use Melissa. I think she does wonderful work and I highly recommend her!Thank you so much Melissa!"

"I must say that Melissa is the sweetest, most pleasant person to work with. I have very discriminating taste and wanted everything to be just as I imagined it for my wedding. She listened to my requests and delivered each and every one of them. She did an amazing job on my makeup, my skin looked better than it has ever looked. My bridesmaids were all thrilled and looked beautiful. I would highly recommend her, she is wonderful!
