  • Diane and her assistant Blanca were fantastic! Their prices are the best I've found by far, and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Two trials, and they come to your home the morning of the wedding. Diane and Blanca arrived right on time early in the morning and did an absolutely wonderful job! Also, Suzanne, Diane's friend and make up partner, was absolutely lovely, professional, and did a fabulous job and all of my bridesmaids and my mother. Diane, Blanca, and Suzanne were the first people I saw on my wedding day, and they really helped me calm down and set the tone for a wonderful day! I highly recommend! My hair lasted all day and looks fabulous in the pictures. A wonderful team.

  • After a last minute hair glitch, the day before the wedding Diane was willing to come and do hair for 6 girls (bride, 5 bridesmaids). She completely rearranged her schedule to accommodate us. There was no time to have a practice session. She came with 2 assistants who were wonderful. Everyone was very happy with their hair styles. And, despite an outdoor wedding with over 100 degree heat, somehow everyone's hair lasted perfectly all evening. Diane did the bride and was even willing to redo it quickly just to be sure it was perfect. We are very grateful to her and her staff for their beautiful work and sweet personalities. As we look over the pictures we are able to appreciate how extremely talented the three hair stylists are. We could not have asked for nicer ladies to be with us for the bridal preparations.

  • Diane and her assistant Blanca were awesome. Diane's service is extremely reasonably priced, especially considering she will travel to your hotel to do your hair (and her price for bridal hair includes 2 trials! you can't find that anywhere)! She and Blanca came to our hotel in Fairfax, did my hair plus 3 bridesmaids, in great time. We changed the contract a bit a few weeks before the wedding and she was totally flexible. I definitely recommend her for wedding hair!

  • Diane was wonderful. She worked with me on different styles before the wedding several times so that we could pick the perfect one. Then on my wedding day she was spectacular! I received many compliments on my hair as well as my bridesmaids and mom. I will continue to go to Diane for regular hair appointments, once you find a great hair stylist you don't want to let them get away! Ashley

  • Diane and her staff of lovely ladies really came through. I had an early ceromony which meant the hair started at 5:30am... She was there on time ready to go... Thanks! She really knows what looks good and has all the lastest and most fabulous hair styles!!!

  • I loved my hair. Make up was not as I requested. In addition, their makeup artist acted as my "day of" coordinator and did not perform the services she was contracted for. I spent my first morning of married life in a ballroom surrounded by my dripping and broken wedding decorations, repacking and repairing the damage done. If my cousins hadn't been in the hotel, I probably would still be there. Dianne was great, avoid Suzanne like the plague.

  • Not only did I have to wait several hours the first time that I went for my consult, but I was left waiting the day of my wedding nearly 45 minutes. After she got there, she rolled my hair and then I asked her to work on my mother's hair. Basically tease it out and fluff it a little. She was done in flash and my mother is still dealing with a sore head and the wedding was 6 weeks ago. I also caught her doing something that was very inappropriate and called her on it. My hair turned out so-so. I don't think I would recommend this vendor to anyone who is looking for a "top notch" hair dresser b/c of several issues that we had with her.

  • Diane provided hair styling for me and my maid of honor. She did two trial runs of my hair prior to the wedding. Her styles were good and stayed all day long for both of us. However, she was an hour late showing up to the hotel. I let my sister have the pleasure of chewing her out when she finally did show up. It was just fortunate that both of our hair was easy to do and we were only 15 minutes behind schedule when we left the hotel, but I didn't get to take any pictures with my MOH before the ceremony due to this delay. If you use here, make confirm repeatedly for the time and location.

  • I ended up with Diane because my make up artist works with her. I wish I had looked around some more and found someone else. She is a nice lady but she is not very good at accomodating your wishes. For the first trial, I even brought a picture of the style I wanted, but she did a completely different style. I liked it though so I went ahead and signed the contract with her. But in about three hours, all my hair fell out. The second trial, I brought the same picture again. She was closer this time, but still not there. Finally, the day of the wedding arrived, and she was doing a completely different style! It took three attempts to get it right. In the end, I really liked the final updo, but I felt like it really shouldn't have taken so many tries to get it right. I just wanted a simple ballerina bun! And every time I told her that's not quite right, I could HEAR her getting exasperated b/c she kept huffing and puffing behind my head. The hair didn't stay all night eith... Read more

  • Most stressful part of my day! Diane showed up 40 minutes late to do my hair - no call , no notice, she was just late. She didn't even apologize until she left. She gave me a set of hair curlers to plug in before she got there, which broke, so we had to use a curling iron. I had scheduled 1 hour to get my hair done, which she said was more than enough time, but since she was 40 minutes late and the last thing I had to do until pictures (before the ceremony), it delayed our photos by 30 minutes - thank god we had pictures first and not the ceremony or she would have made the whole event late. I understand traffic happens, but she could have called ("my cell phone died") or left sooner, which she should have done. Completely unprofessional. My hair looked ok in the end, but I would not recommend her at all.

  • Diane does amazing work - I had three trials with her and she did great work and is SO fast. She's also really sweet. I was very happy with how my hair turned out, and I hate to say anything negative about her as a vendor, but the fact is she was considerably late on the day of the wedding, which threw things off quite a bit for us. Again, her work and her assistants' work was great and lasted through the reception, but I would caution other brides about the tardiness.

  • Diane was great to work with. Price was a little on the high side, but included a trim and 2 trial up do's. She also came to our hotel w/ 2 assistants to do my and my bridal parties hair. She gave me exactly what I asked for and was very pleasant to work with.

  • I give Diane a 4 for flexibility because she was extremely flexible in scheduling my hair trials, as I was coming in from Boston. She was available on a Sunday afternoon and I appreciated that. She gets a 3 for responsiveness because she was mostly good about returning calls and emails. This is where the good review ends. I loved the way my hair looked for my trial. Word of warning to any future brides: Take a picture at your trial and bring it to the wedding. Diane did not remember AT ALL what it was supposed to look like. She did my hair in about 5 minutes (I didn't question this for the trial but was sure she'd spend more time the day of the wedding) and when I looked in the mirror, it looked NOTHING like it did at the trial. When she asked me what I didn't like, I really couldn't put my finger on what was different. I just knew it was different. My mom and a bridesmaid had been with me for the trial and both agreed my hair looked different. So it wasn't just me. When I couldn't pi... Read more

  • It would take too long to write all the problems with this vendor so I will list some of them: 1. She was 2 hours late. Heck, I could have slept in longer since she was the one who decided on the start time... 2. She didn't answer her cell phone when we called asking where she was and then made up lies about where she was. She also didn't know how to get to our house and kept calling my dad every 5 minutes asking for the next step in the directions. 3. Among her excuses she said she wasn't every SUPPOSED to be there on time, but her assistants come early and do the bridesmaids and she comes to do the bride... why didn't she every mention that to US if that was the plan all along. 4. One of her lies she called in with after we had been waiting 1 hour was "two assistants are on there way and will be there in 5 minutes. One assistant came in about 20 minutes. The other never came and probably never existed. 5. She was rude to that assistant when she got there. 6. My hair... Read more

  • I made the contract through Bridal Artistry, I have to indicate that Diane only worked on my hair and the flower girl. She brought an assitant to work on 3 bridesmaids and 3 friends. For the trial, she was in a hurry, since I have short hair I thought I didn't have many options, but she indicated that with extensions I could have an updo, althought it only took a couple of minutes I was happy with the results and I decide to go with the updo. I had a second trial the week before the wedding to try out the extensions, everything went ok. The day of the wedding, the assitant showed up early (6:45AM), and started right away with my bridesmaids and friends, every single one of them loved their hair, she even did a look alike updo, without hair extensions, to one of my bridesmaids who had short hair. Here is when Diane's lack of professionalism came out, first she arrived later that her assitant, and worked on my flower girl, during this time she loudly indicated that one of my bridesmaid h...
