  • Elaine Harrison was great! I had a hair and makeup trial a few months before my wedding. I was very pleased with the result so I booked her without considering anyone else. None of my bridesmaids had been planning on getting their hair or makeup done, but when I showed them the pictures of my trial run they all changed their minds. Elaine brought another woman with her and between the two of them, they were able to do my hair and makeup, 5 bridesmaids hair and makeup, and 2 junior bridesmaids hair. She was very quick and efficient about it. Everyone was very pleased with their looks. We had plenty of time to spare as well. I highly recommend Elaine to any bride that doesn't want to have another thing to worry about on her wedding day. Thank you Elaine!

  • Elaine and her assistant Lillian did the hair and makeup for 7 of us: myself, my mom, my (now) mother-in-law, my MOH & 3 bridesmaids, and then just the makeup of my grandmother. I live out of the state so didn't have the chance to do a trial run, but was super happy with the final results. They showed up on time, were fast and efficient, and everyone ended up beautiful and happy (with leftover time to spare, phew!). Elaine did all of the makeup (and my hair), and Lillian did a gorgeous job with the hair. I had a few ideas of how I wanted my hair done, and Elaine looked at those on the spot and helped figure out what would work with my hair type. Everyone's makeup was beautiful, and although I wasn't originally a fan of fake eyelashes, I felt that she did an awesome job with them and helped make them look natural. Elaine was one of the more reasonably priced makeup artists I found as well. Would highly recommend!

  • Elaine is such a pro! We had a trial set up for a certain day, but the day before, she called me and said that she had seriously injured her hand. She was willing to fight through the pain to hold the trial, but that would have been awful! Rescheduling was easy, so we went with that option instead. When I arrived for my trial, I brought photos of the look I was going for, but she barely even needed them. She knew exactly what I wanted on makeup, and merged the hairstyles that I liked to create a super loose chignon that was exactly what I had in mind. On the day of, my bridesmaids and I were running about 15 minutes late due to slow restaurant service. Elaine called for backup and an assistant showed up about an hour later- as a result, everything was done on time! She was extremely nice throughout the whole process (despite our lateness!), and I enjoyed chatting with her while she worked. My girls and I all felt beautiful, and our confidence showed up in the photos! Her services were ... Read more

  • I just got married March 30, 2013 and Elaine did my hair & make up, plus my 2 bridesmaids for my wedding...she is AMAZING! I've never felt more beautiful, my hair and make up was FLAWLESS. Not only is Elaine a true artist at her craft, she has the best attitude and professionalism. For example, the country club I got married at was having a huge Easter function the day of my wedding (which they failed to tell me about) so they had to move us around while we were trying to get ready and I know that was a big inconvenience for Elaine and everybody but she was so kind and understanding about it. She made me feel more relaxed b/c I was freaking out at first! She doesn't rush you and she gets her job done efficiently. Plus, I was a bride on a budget and she doesn't overprice you, even though her work is over the top amazing. I HIGHLY recommend her!!!

  • I hired Elaine to do hair and makeup for myself and my wedding party (two moms, MOH and JBM) and we were all very happy with the results. One of the things I liked best about working with Elaine was that she really listened to each of us when we described what we wanted. If something wasn’t quite right, she was able to adjust it so that it was perfect. Since there were five of us, Elaine came to my parents’ house to get us all ready. She was very respectful of being in someone’s home with all her equipment and took steps to protect the furniture, etc. Elaine worked pretty swiftly, but never seemed to be rushed or made us feel rushed. I did do both a hair and make up trial with her about two months prior to the wedding and recommend you do as well. This helped Elaine know exactly what to do on the day of the wedding and made it easy on my since I didn’t have to make any decisions that day. Our whole wedding party looked gorgeous – not overly done but glamorous versions of ... Read more

  • Elaine was sooooo much fun to work with. So friendly and laid back. She was an absolute professional and made my girls look gorgeous. She is equally skilled with hair and makeup. One of my bridesmaids has literally hair that is thick and 5 feet long, a daunting task! But Elaine didn't even blink an eye and came up with a beautiful hairstyle. Another concern was how to get my heavy, floor length veil to stay in my super straight and not very thick hair. Elaine was able to do it on the first try. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!!

  • Elaine was amazing! My daughter did not have a trial due to the fact we lived in another state, so she was a bit nervous of how her makeup would look. However, my daughter was totally pleased with her bridal makeup. She looked radiant and ever though it was hot and humid outside, her makeup lasted all night. Elaine also did my make up, the make up of my two other daughters and the hair of the junior bridesmaid. She worked fast, efficient, and we all looked beautiful. Needless to say, I was a bit stressed on the wedding day. I had told everyone to arrive at the wrong time, but Elaine handled it like a charm. Even when the bride decided to change the look of her eyes, she made the change with a smile, and never lost her cool. All in all ,Elaine was professional, friendly and accomendating from the very first contact, and we were so pleased with her work.

  • Elaine was an absolutely perfect hair and makeup artist. She really listened to what I wanted and I was SO happy with how I looked at my wedding! She did hair and makeup for me, my mom, my mother-in-law, and one of my bridesmaids. She also did hair only for a three of my bridesmaids. Everyone was really pleased with how things turned out. Elaine was so easy to talk to and she just blended right in with me and my friends and family on my wedding day!

  • I really enjoyed having Elaine do my wedding hair and make-up! She is such a wonderful person and was a fun addition to our group when getting ready (as was Jamie, her assistant)! Her prices were very reasonable, especially for someone who will come to you. At my trial, she looked through pictures of hairstyles with me to get a good idea of what I was looking for. She even made flowers out of paper towel and pinned them in my hair so I could get an idea of what it would look like with the flowers! She was open to adaptations I wanted to make from the original trial hair-do. On the big day she brought an assistant to help with hair since the bridal party and mothers were also getting hair and make-up done. Before arriving, she sent me a text to see if I wanted anything from Starbucks - incredibly sweet!! All my ladies looked so beautiful! Elaine is very skilled in make-up artistry. She can accommodate to those who wear lots, little, or no make-up in their everyday life. I rea... Read more

  • Elaine was fantastic, friendly, professional, creative and just an all around great asset to my wedding day! She quickly became just ‘one of the girls’ hanging out in the hotel room during the day. My Mom, three bridesmaids and I all had our hair done. Everything looked great and lasted all night! Elaine also ended up doing my Mom’s makeup for the wedding. I have never seen my Mom look more beautiful and elegant. I would highly recommend Elaine for any event!

  • Elaine Harrison is great. Her prices are lower than others in the area, and she really knows what she's doing. She was great to have on my wedding day because she was very calming and you really need that when you're stressed. At the last minute we had her do an extra hairdo and she was fine with it. We also had her straighten the flower girl's hair and she wouldn't even charge me for it. She does a great job with make-up too, and tries hard to make it look natural (good for me because I don't wear much make-up). Also she traveled to my wedding venue, which many hair and make-up vendors won't do. I highly recommend Elaine for hair and make-up!
