Best Hair Salon I've Ever Been To – Lizz was my hairstylist and makeup artist for my wedding and I am so thankful for her! If I could rate her higher than 5 stars, I would. Ladies, this is a long review, but I promise you it's worth reading.
The venue was set and I found the perfect dress to match the sunset ceremony I had envisioned. My final and most important concern however was my hair and makeup. I was getting married on the beach and I wanted long beautiful beach waves, but my hair was very short. I had never had extensions before and I had no idea where to start. I had several consultations with different stylists and each of them presented me with a different option and method, all of which were outrageously priced. I had no idea which option was the best for me nor did I want to spend $600 plus on a hairstyle. For my makeup, I was quoted a minimum of $200 by multiple makeup artists in the area and decided that I would just do it myself.
The last hair stylist I called was Lizz. I had found her on yelp a while back but hesitated to call because her salon had very few reviews. My wedding was only 2 weeks away and I hadn't found anyone yet. I called Lizz and we had a brief phone consultation about what it is I wanted. I immediately fell in love with her. She was friendly, down to earth and knowledgeable and I knew she was going to do what was best for me and not herself.
I told her I had no idea how to go about choosing extensions and which method was best. She asked me a few questions about my wedding and informed me that I could easily go a more inexpensive route and still have amazing beach wedding hair. She even offered to meet me that weekend at a beauty supply near my house to help me pick out the right extensions that matched my hair perfectly. Every other stylist I had spoken to before had left me on my own to pick my hair and I was so confused when I went to the beauty supply because there were just too many options. Lizz completely eliminated that process. She took one look at my hair and new exactly what to get. We were in and out in minutes.
We booked the appointment to get my hair done for the morning of my wedding. She also offered to do my makeup and eyelashes at a very reasonable price. She assured me that I would look absolutely stunning. I believed her when she told me that.
The morning of my wedding, I went to the salon with my maid of honor, bridesmaid and my mother. Even though it was very last minute, she agreed to take care of them as well. We had such a blast! Lizz made us feel right at home. Her salon was really nice. There was a small lounge area with couches for the girls to hang out at while they waited. The music was pumping in the background setting a cool, fun yet laid back/relaxing vibe. Lizz let us eat our breakfast and joined us in some hilarious girl talk while doing my hair. I almost forgot I was getting married that day. With all the fun we were having, I no longer felt anxious or nervous. It was a great start to my day.
When she was done with my hair she proceeded to put on my lashes, then apply my makeup. I was going for bold, dramatic eyes with a soft glowing complexion. Lizz knew exactly what to do. When she was done, I nearly cried - and my mother actually did cry. It was better than I could have ever imagined. My hair was absolutely amazing! Long, flowing curls that I would later brush into waves ran down my shoulders and back. It looked so unbelievable natural. And my makeup! My skin looked flawless and my eyes were "captivating" (my husband's words). I can't begin to tell you how many amazing compliments I received about my hair and makeup. But it was the look on my husbands face when he saw me walking down the aisle that said it all. I swear to god his jaw dropped to the floor when he saw me. During the ceremony, he kept whispering to me how breathtaking and beautiful I looked. It was absolutely magical. And I owe it all to Lizz! She made my day perfect and I can't thank her enough.
