  • Celeste was amazing! I hired her to do my hair/makeup for my stepson's wedding. She was prompt and professional. She brought everything she needed including a chair for me to sit in when she did my hair and makeup. She was totally down to earth and listened to everything I wanted. We then discussed possible modifications to fit my unique personality and physical characteristics. The results were amazing! My makeup was perfect. It was natural yet sophisticated. I was not overly made up. Celeste brought out my best features. My hair was beautiful. I had brought hair extensions with me for Celeste to clip in that I had purchased at a beauty store to achieve the style I wanted. It came out better than I could have imagined! I can not say enough about how great she made me look! Thank you Celeste!

  • Celeste was amazing. Not only was her work fantastic, but spending time with her was both fun and calming. Everyone looked gorgeous, even at the end of a long reception and after party. It was really important to me to look like myself and not heavily made up, and Celeste made sure I liked what she had done and tweaked everything I wanted tweaked. I looked like me only way more impressive, and the pictures are stunning. I was so happy with everything - couldn't recommend her more highly.

  • Celeste was wonderful to work with! I was so happy with how my hair & makeup came out on my wedding day, it looked flawless. Celeste traveled to our hotel in Fishkill with her assistants (who were also wonderful) which made my wedding day so much easier. She was also very accommodating for my hair & makeup trial which I was able to coordinate with my engagement photo shoot, which was perfect. Thanks Celeste!

  • Celeste Von Damon and her wonderful team did hair and makeup for my wedding day. I wanted her team to highlight everyone's one-of-a-kind natural beauty without looking too done up. Not only did they succeed, but they also added a wonderful, calming presence to a hectic morning. Celeste listens to what you want, offers advice when asked, and wants you to be happy. If you want to work with professionals who know their stuff, I would highly recommend Celeste and her team!- Colleen M

  • There are so many countless decisions and details to worry about on your wedding day but your hair does not need to be one of them, if you use Celeste and her team. I hired Celeste to do my bridesmaid’s, mother's, and my hair for my wedding this summer. The images of her work, outstanding reviews, and competitive pricing lead me to choose her for a trial. She was able to conceptualize the look I was going for on her first attempt and provided other important hair care advice. Leading up to the day of the wedding, I continued to be impressed with her timely responses and attention to details. She worked with my hair stylist (at the salon I go to) and myself to adjusting the hair extensions to the correct size based on the hairstyle I had chosen. She even offered to prep the extensions prior to the wedding allowing for more time the day of the wedding. All of the positive interactions I had with Celeste prior to the wedding did not do justice to the quality of work and professionalism... Read more

  • I hired Celeste Von Damon for hair & makeup for my wedding on July 8, 2016. Celeste and her assistant, Vanessa, did the hair & makeup for both moms and the entire bridal party. I’m so happy to have found Celeste so quickly. My previous hair/makeup “friend” flaked out on me 2 months before my wedding so I was frantically looking for someone. Also living 2 hours away from where the wedding was to be held, it was difficult to find someone. I found Celeste through Wedding Wire and she was available. I’m actually happier that this worked out the way it did, because I don’t think anyone else could have made me look more beautiful than she did. Celeste is very professional and uses only completely sterile and disposable applicators. She brings everything she needs with her as well, including a full-length mirror the day of the wedding to see the whole picture! She spent lots of time with me during the trial and we created the perfect wedding look together. After the trial, I... Read more

  • I can't thank Celeste enough for making myself and my bridesmaids look incredible for my wedding in Catskill NY in June 2016! She and her assistant were in charge of all hair/makeup for my bridal party (4 bridesmaids and myself), and Celeste personally did both my hair and makeup--both women did amazing work and everyone looked stunning. I could not be happier with how I looked on my wedding day; Celeste is truly is an artist. I also completely changed my hair idea in between the trial and wedding--I added a veil so we needed to change the style completely. I gave her some ideas and photos of the new style, and she went with it (but did talk to me throughout to see how I liked it--I liked everything!). It turned out better than I ever dreamed and I am the happiest newlywed because of her. She is calm, caring, professional, and great at what she does. Thank you Celeste!

  • I had a wonderful experience with Celeste!! After having a trial with her I knew right away that I wanted her to do my hair and makeup on my wedding day! She is extremely friendly, easy to talk to, was very quick to respond to emails and answer any questions that I had. She understood the style I was looking for exactly. Her work is amazing! I was married on June 4 at West Hills Country Club. Celeste arrived early and ready to go! Her and her assistant were wonderful and a pleasure to be around while we got ready- we listened to james brown all morning :) I received compliments all night ! I would highly recommend Celeste!!

  • I'm so thrilled we found Celeste and that she was available for our wedding date. She is the consummate professional, so good at what she does and with such a peaceful nature. On our wedding day, she was a calming presence in a sea of rushing around and semi-chaotic prep. She and Dori handled two brides, two bridesmaids, and a MOB with aplomb and made us all look fantastic. Neither of us is used to wearing makeup or elaborate hairstyles and Celeste was totally understanding of that. She struck the perfect balance between inquiring about our wishes and offering her own expertise. She made us feel so comfortable that we knew we were in good hands and she would make us look fabulous - and she did! I absolutely love the way we all looked and I am so grateful to Celeste for making it happen. I cannot recommend her more highly - she will make you look fantastic and feel great all at the same time!

  • I am so grateful to have found Celeste. From the first email to the final lash, she was the epitome of professionalism, warmth and talent. I had two trials because I couldn't make up my mind about details and she was so welcoming and honest with all my ideas. On my wedding day she arrived promptly with her wonderful team and created order out of chaos. My six bridesmaids, my mom and I were so happy with the hair and makeup. We all felt so beautiful. Celeste is calming and exceedingly talented. I am so glad she was there to make me feel pretty on my wedding day.

  • Planning a wedding long distance can be stressful, but Celeste was flexible when it came to my limited time on the East coast where I had several planning meetings in just a few days. During my trial she took her time (about three hours) and went over photos and discussed what I was looking for in terms of hair and makeup for my wedding. She did a great job, but after thinking about it for a few weeks, I had a some changes I wanted to make. I sent Celeste photos and explained as best I could what I wanted. On the day of my wedding, I absolutely loved my makeup and hair. When I look at the pictures, I feel so good about how I looked and felt on the big day. Celeste listened to me and made tweaks from the work she did during my trial, and the end result was exactly how I envisioned it. Her team did an amazing job with my bridesmaids and mom also looked fantastic. I had a day wedding with photos starting at noon. With myself, seven bridesmaids and two mothers, Celeste and her team d... Read more

  • I found Celeste through a suggestion from a family friend. We had Celeste and her 2 assistants do hair and makeup for the bride, bridesmaids and moms. Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous, natural, and felt incredibly comfortable. Celeste was very responsive, flexible and easy to work with. At the trial, Celeste was very helpful in coming up with suggestions, as I (the bride) wasn't clear on what makeup look and hairstyle I wanted to go with. She looked at pictures of the dress and venue to understand the overall aesthetic. During the morning of the wedding, Celeste's calming personality was definitely helpful! We had plenty of time for the bridesmaids to provide input on their makeup and hair looks, and get touchups as well. Everyone received eyelashes included in the price, and airbrush makeup was also an option for an additional fee. Many of the bridesmaids weren't sure exactly how they wanted their makeup and hair, and Celeste and her assistants had great ideas for all. Eve... Read more

  • I would highly recommend working with Celeste and her team! Dori and two other artists worked on hair and makeup for myself and 6 of my bridesmaids for my wedding at the Wainwright House. Before the wedding I had a trial at Celeste's home and tested out the hair and makeup I was envisioning. I normally don't wear a lot of makeup so I only had a vague idea about what I wanted for my face and hair. Dori was great at translating my initial thoughts into something beautiful that emphasized my features without being overdone. On the day of the wedding my hair and makeup were even more beautiful than I had anticipated! I have a lot of hair that can be difficult to tame into an updo but my hairstyle lasted long into the night and looked great with my veil. My bridesmaids had beautiful, natural makeup and hair that emphasized their own unique features as well. Dori and Celeste were both very easy to work with, flexible, and responsive, I would highly recommend them for any event.

  • I waited a long time to write this because I was so conflicted. Celeste made my venues' tiny accommodations work and my bridesmaids looked amazing. She helped me calm my nerves when I didn't fit in my dress and was at my lowest. She was a great support during my most anxious time. I couldn't afford a trial so I sent a ton of photos as I really wanted a very specific look. Although she promised she could do what I asked, when the day came, i looked like Better Davis from whatever happened to baby Jayne. I had asked for a rockabilly pin up look. While she spent most of the time curling my hair, I didn't want my hair curled . In fact all the photos I sent had 1940 waves except for a make up a photo I had sent specifically high lighting the makeup only. When I noticed she wasn't doing a what I had wanted, o asked if she would brush it out as I wanted a 1940's glam look. She said it looked glam already and assured it was fine and didn't brush it at all. She was so focused on ... Read more

    Dear Jess, I'm very sorry you didn't like the hair and makeup I provided for your wedding. I'm very versed in doing glam pin up but without a trial there's no room for fine tuning what you liked and didn't like. I always recommend a trial. Without that there is only time for one interpretation:( Sometime the hair doesn't fall the way you want it to for whatever reason- the shape of the hairline or the haircut. I may have needed to use a tighter curl because of the responsiveness of your hair to curling.These are a few of the variables that arise during a trial.I wish I could remember all the circumstances .I always give 100% to every bride. I thought you looked beautiful. I'm so sorry you didn't like it.

  • Celeste is a very sweet person and I'm sure she would have been a delight to have around on my wedding day, but I strongly recommend booking a trial before sending in your deposit, and explicitly showing pictures of what you are looking for. Otherwise if you are unhappy with the result, you will loose your deposit like I did.
