  • "Abigail's services were a wedding gift to me and she was simply fantastic! I sent her a few pictures of hair updos that I liked before my trial and she exceeded my expectations. She listened to my comments about the makeup and it looked great. I even got compliments from the photographer about how great the makeup looked. I can't say enough good things about Abigail and her work. JUST WONDERFUL!

  • Abigail is an absolute darling! I couldn’t have been happier of having her doing my hair and make up on my wedding day! She also took care of my bridal party and they all looked amazing. We all got so many compliments! She not only listened and understood what I wanted, but she also came to my house for a trial, and went out of her way to visit the venue and work with my photographer to make sure everything would work perfectly. The results were beyond expectations!!! Abigail was so easy to talk to and an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.
