  • Kara and Carmen did our hair and make up and they both did a great job. I had a last minute change of hairstyle and decided to wear my hair up and Carmen handled it like a pro. Kara was super nice as well and really took her time to make sure our make up was perfect.

  • Glow was great to work with! They made the planning process super easy and they were always so quick to respond to any questions or detail changes I had. The day of the wedding Heather and Kara did makeup and Rachel did hair, all were so amazing. They really listened to what all the girls wanted and everyone looked so beautiful, not to mention they showed up on time and never got behind schedule. Would recommend them to anyone!

  • I was so, so happy I chose Glow Bridal for hair and makeup services for my wedding day. Kate was extremely responsive and very organized leading up to the day. I worked with Mina for makeup, and Carmen for hair. They provided services for me, my bridesmaids and two moms. Mina is a fantastic aesthetician and really knows her stuff. I could tell right away at the trial that I would be very happy with everything. She did a fantastic job at the wedding day listening to the small changes I wanted from the trial, and I literally would not change one thing about my makeup. She also was wonderful with my mom, who had never had her makeup professionally applied, and chatted with her on the phone a few weeks in advance of our wedding. She gave her great skincare advice, and my mom was so happy with her youthful makeup application on the wedding day. All the girls were over the moon as well, and I know one girl who filed away information about Glow for future reference! Carmen was the most ... Read more

  • Leticia and Kate are AMAZING! I had a little bit of confusion on booking. Kate is in Austin part time, but is the person you work with to set up appointments and what not. She is quick to reply and easy to work with. Leticia is in Austin, and is equally wonderful! Leticia is the miracle working that did my hair and make up for our wedding. Kate came in and did makeup for my mother and my cousin. Kate did a great job on those ladies! Leticia did everyone's hair. My trial with Leticia was great! I showed her a few different pictures of ideas that I wanted to combine. I wanted 50's style victory rolls but with a faux hawk. She knew exactly what I wanted and wrangled my very long very thick hair into submission. Leticia is sweet and easy to talk to and work with! As for the makeup, I didn't have a clear vision on what I wanted and Leticia had some great ideas. She did two completely different styles (one on each eye!) and then we figured out which looked best! On wedding day the ... Read more

  • I had Mina from Glow Bridal for my wedding consultation and day of make-up. She was absolutely amazing! She is so sweet and easy to get along with and she really listens to what you are looking for. I wanted a simple natural look but I still wanted to look stunning on my big day and she did just that. Everyone said that I looked radiant and I owe it all to Mina! The day of the wedding we were on a bit of a time crunch and she kept calm and collected and gave each person her undivided attention and everyone in my bridal party loved their make up. I am so glad we found her! Thank you glow bridal :)

  • Kate did the makeup for me, my bridal party, and my mom, and Rachel did hair for me and my bridal party. I could not have been happier with every aspect while working with them. Kate was incredibly responsive and friendly when I initially contacted her. I rarely wear makeup and when I had gotten it professionally done before I never really felt like I looked like myself in pictures. Kate definitely listened to my concerns and what I was looking for and she more than delivered. Not to mention she was extremely friendly and fun to talk to while getting makeup done. Rachel’s skill and personality were a perfect match in working with Kate. I had trouble finding a hairstyle that I wanted for my wedding day until I was browsing pictures on their website and I found what I wanted. Everyone seemed to want such different hairstyles and Rachel did each one to perfection. I have truly never felt more beautiful than I did that day, I think they did a wonderful job and I couldn’t have asked ... Read more

  • Mina at Glow did a gorgeous job on my makeup, my mom's makeup, and two of my bridesmaids. She was very sweet and professional and made everyone feel comfortable. Same for the hair stylist--relaxed and accommodating and great with different hair types. Would definitely recommend Glow Bridal!

  • We booked them for not one but two brides for a hot July wedding for hair and makeup. We also had some of the bridal party and a mother of the bride use the makeup service. We found the women who did our hair and makeup to be personable and professional, doing an excellent job of making our hair stay just right and our looks be polished. We received a great deal of compliments on how beautiful we both looked and it was thanks to Glow Bridal.

  • I had a very small wedding party, just myself, and my maid of honor (my sister). Our mom got ready with us as well, so with only 3 girls getting hair & makeup, we did not qualify to use Glow's services with the minimum of 4 girls. Kate was very accommodating and was willing to ask her stylists if anyone would be willing to book me with just 3 girls, and luckily 2 of her artists agreed! I had also booked very far in advance (almost 2 years). I had my wedding-day makeup and pre-trial done with Mina. She's very sweet and has a great memory! We all loved our makeup and it lasted. I love that the airbrush makeup is included in the price we were already paying. The only value we lost out on was pre-paying for lashes that were not used. Carmen was our hair stylist. After my hair trial I looked at the photos for weeks and just decided it wasn't what I wanted. Carmen was very flexible and was able to give me a new style the day of my wedding with some photos I brought. My mom and sister told me... Read more

  • Kate was quick to response to my questions and concerns whenever they came up. The makeup and hair artists were fun and professional. I had little knowledge of what I wanted and gave them full control and they did great! Very flexible for the last minute add ons as well.

  • I was very happy with Glow! They did makeup for 9 women for my July wedding-- moms, bridesmaids, officiant (a friend) and bride. They were consummate professionals throughout the whole process, and I think everyone was happy. I didn't do a trial run before the wedding, but my make-up artist really listened to me and gave me the natural look I asked for. It also held up well in the July heat.

  • We hired Glow to do the hair and makeup at our wedding; to be clear, they did NOT do my wedding hair and makeup because they cancelled on us at the trial. I cannot attest to their quality on the wedding day, this is about dealing with them as a business which was very difficult! I tried to book a silver package for myself and my bridesmaids, and add two blowouts for the moms of the bride and groom. On the website it says that you cannot change a package or make substitutions, but nowhere did it say that you can not add à la carte services in addition to a complete package. I wrote this on the contract and sent it in. Two months later, when I went for my trial, they told me that I couldn't do that and quoted me a different price, $200 than what I had thought I was paying on the original contract. We called the salon owner who was not there, and I asked her why she didn't contact me about this change in the two months in between when I sent the original deposit and the day I came in for...

    "Packages are for the number of above wedding parties and include an updo for each , makeup for each, bridal hair and makeup, and trials for the bride. We cannot break up or change the packages in any way. If you have an odd number of guests, or are not requiring both updos and makeup, the packages would not be less expensive. Packages do not include travel fees, lashes, extensions, or gratuities." This was read on the website, and contract before signing that you understood and sent in. Upon arrival my manager Rachel started to go over the contract and day of timeline with you. You were agitated that you could not receive the package and two ala carte services anyways. Rachel called me so I could talk to you about the way it works and the discount is pre-determined for all of the packages. After explaining how you felt, and I would not change our policy, you canceled the wedding services with my team. Your mom then got on the phone and tried to calm the situation down and talk through how this could work for everyone. I explained again that the stylists would be taking a financial hit and not receive full pay if the package was given and ala carte chosen. The final break down was a $90 difference for you to pay. At that time both stylists did not want to work for you any longer. Since everyone is freelance, I have no say in who they work with. I am glad you found another salon to help out, it wasn't the right for our team to work together.

  • I had hair and make-up done by Glow for myself, the mothers, and my bridesmaids. I was really happy with the hair and make-up stylists that we worked with. Everyone looked polished and natural - nothing was too bold or overdone, which is exactly the look I was going for. Even the moms, neither of whom wear much makeup, felt really good once they were all done up. My experience with the logistics was not as positive. After the initial phone call, almost all communication took place via email - which is fine. However, it felt like each time I followed up about scheduling and details, the owner was misreading the contract and getting the details mixed up. The night before the wedding, she emailed (very late) to confirm a start time that was far later than we had previously agreed to, and would not have worked with the rest of the wedding-day schedule. It took some very early day-of-wedding texting to straighten things out - which included sending in a substitute make-up artist to get s... Read more

    I am very sorry to hear that this timing was a cause of distress. We had the original time down on the contract, and it was changed to earlier. I did not notify the makeup artist until the day prior. The hair stylist had no problem coming in earlier, but the first makeup artist did mind, so I sent in one of our second team members to start the first two attendants until 11 am when we originally scheduled for. Unfortunately, I was in our Texas location not Mass. so when sending the email to confirm, it was received in Eastern time/ in the evening. Because I personally had a 12 person wedding that day, all of my confirmation emails went out as soon I could. This caused distress and unwanted anxiety for you on your big day, and I am so sorry for that. I am glad that the stylists were professional, and gave you exactly what you were desiring for your hair and makeup. Thank you for the feedback for how we can improve for next season.
