Makeup, Hair, & Alterations

Postby kjm26 » Fri Jul 17, 2015 12:17 pm

Hello Ladies,
I wanted to see if anyone could recommend or knows of anyone that will do onsite hair and makeup?

I also wanted to see if anyone could recommend a seamstress?

TIA

I used Holly Speakes for my makeup--she came to my house and I was very happy with how it looked for photos, etc.

This is her salon's website: http://www.procoloursalon.com/stylists.html
(When I went their earlier the link to her wedding pricing/services wasn't working, but I'm sure she would be able to get the info to you.)

My dress shop did my alterations so I don't have any recommendations there.

Sandy's Alterations on Hampton rebuilt a BM dress for me and I know a bunch of people that have used her for bridal dresses as well. Very reasonably priced.

Vivian: It's so sad how bitter Mets fans are.

Ditto. I emailed for a quote for mine. Not sure how much has changed but she was very reasonable 5 years ago, and she's cut and colored my hair a few times since my wedding and reasonably priced for that as well.

Another vote for Holly! I used her and so did my sister in law. She came to the hair salon I use for my wedding and we went to her salon for my SIL's wedding. Both were great!

For alterations I used (as have several other people that I've recommended and who recommended me) Janet Brocato in O'fallon. She is amazing and so reasonably priced. Her number is 636-300-0838.

I used Flawless for makeup and LOVED Jennifer and my makeup - her website is http://www.flawlesstl.com/ She was really reasonably priced, too. She was super fun to talk to

For hair I used Angie Kester - she works out of KINK hair salon in Clayton. She was recommended by Jennifer and I LOVED her, too. I had my trial scheduled when I was in town for my bridal shower and could ONLY do my trial on Saturday morning, so she came in (from St. Charles, where she lives), opened the salon at 8am for my trial, and I was her only appointment for the day because she was leaving for vacation that afternoon. Seriously, she was so awesome.
