  • Michelle and her team are pros and will guide you every step of the way. I got a custom spray tan a couple of days before the wedding with Bailee and she did an amazing job! I knew Michelle had a great reputation, but I was blown away with my bridal hair and makeup as well as my entire bridal party! The team spent extra time after they finished my hair and makeup to provide last minute touch ups. Most importantly, they were on time and prepared for a crew of 11 women! I highly recommend this talented and experienced team!

  • Michelle and Kayla were our stylists for my wedding and they were the sweetest! Everyone’s makeup looked phenomenal and the hair was beautiful! Michelle and Kayla did an amazing job and went over and beyond what we could have ever expected! I definitely have to say the mothers’ looks were hands down my favorite though! The mothers were not sure what hair style they wanted so Michelle and Kayla gave great ideas that looked amazing on them! Thank you both for everything!

  • The Island Glow Team and experience was AMAZING! Everything from the trial to the teeth whitening and tanning to day of preparation was perfect. The team was very professional and did a wonderful job making everyone's desired styles come to life. They listened to each bridesmaid and delivered beyond expectations - taking to heart requests for a 'natural' look and nailing hair styles based off pictures. We honesty could not have had a better experience. Thank you so much for making our special day so perfect.

  • I loved the service, professionalism and the people at island glow. I went there with my mom a few weeks before the wedding. The staff was highly knowledgeable. Checked us in on time and guided us through the entire process answering all of our questions and providing recommendations. It was a pleasure working with them and I highly recommend them to anyone else.

    THANK YOU! We just loved EVERY MINUTE we spent you with! You were the most beautiful and breathtaking bride ever! Our team wishes you a lifetime of LOVE and much happiness. xoxo

  • Michelle from Island Glow did an OUTSTANDING job not only on my bridal makeup, but my entire bridal party’s as well as my Mom and Mother-in-Law for my July wedding in Washington, D.C.! I knew Michelle would be my forever go-to makeup girl, when she agreed to do my makeup for our sunrise engagement pictures last summer. She arrived at our apartment at 3:30 AM to do my makeup and made sure that I looked amazing for our engagement photos in D.C. She even helped me do my hair! On our wedding day, Michelle arrived early and set-up quickly in our bridal suite, all the while chatting and getting to know everyone who was there. She was incredibly friendly and such a joy to be around! Her positivity and contagious personality made everyone feel at ease and comfortable in her make-up chair. She even let some girls and my Mom bring some of their own make-up to use. Everyone’s makeup lasted ALL DAY and looked flawless in the D.C. summer heat! At the end of the night, my make-up looked just as ... Read more

  • It felt like I was being rushed with makeup and hair. My eyebrows were not even the color was way off. Not to mention my eyeliner wasn't even straight and paid $150.00 deposit what a waste of money spent.

    responded with the following comments.

    Cathy, again I am very sorry that you felt rushed and as I stated to. you the next day that I too felt rushed! I block out two hours for each bridal trial, which is adequate time, but when we get started 30 minutes late (as I mentioned when you arrived) it does cut our time together to play, make adjustments to your approval very short. Unfortunately, when this happens I have two options: reschedule the trial (which our policy is for our customers when they are 15 minutes late) or just see how much we can accomplish in our time together. I did have customers booked after your appointment and they did arrive on time and it would be unfair to make them late. If you remember, because I knew we weren't quite on the same page for your makeup colors -but this is the first I am hearing about the eyeliner. I offered AT NO CHARGE another mini trial. Again, I apologize you felt rushed and looking back the right thing was to reschedule you for another day. I wish you the BEST in your new found love and marriage.

  • I would highly recommend Michelle and the Island Glow team. I first used Island Glow services for engagement photo hair and makeup - I loved it so much I immediately booked for my wedding. As a "covid bride" Michelle was amazing and so flexible. Our original wedding plans were changed and Michelle great about working with our new plans. The makeup for my wedding was incredible and I also loved my up-do. I'm looking forward to using Island Glow again for our big wedding and reception.

    It was such an honor to be a part of your magical day!! Love y’all both to death and wish you nothing but the BEST forever!!

  • I was really struggling with whether to leave a review or not because I was not happy. I booked Michelle about a year before the wedding, got married in November 2019, had my trial about a month a so before that. We didn't really talk between booking and trial which is totally fine. I took the afternoon off for my trial as expected. I arrived and she thought I was another bride, was then late starting my trial because of drama going on at her other location (which I get it, things happen, but I don't need to watch her record and send a video message to her employee and hear it all) Once we started, things were fine, we talked all about her family, her daughters, etc. I was prepared with what I wanted my makeup to look like, but she told me she does one look for brides and that's it... I should have asked that question before booking but I assumed a makeup artist could do more than one look. She then told me her husband booked a trip for the same weekend as my wedding so she w...

    Leah thank you so much for you review and honesty -- I HATE that you didn't feel your very prettiest and I will for sure share this with the team. I always take our Brides thoughts to heart and will learn how to make future brides experience better. Happy New Year to you and your new hubby....and again THANK YOU for your honesty!!

  • The girls at Island Glow were truly amazing. Alex, Kayla, and Star did hair and makeup for myself, my six bridesmaids, and four guests of honor (moms/step-moms/aunts). They did an excellent job and finished right on time! I was a little nervous because I did my trial with Michelle, who owns the company, and I have heard horror stories about doing a trial with one person and being serviced by another on your wedding day. That was not the case here! These girls worked so hard and were so patient, even with my mom who rarely wears heavy makeup and was nervous about looking too glam. Every single one of us looked stunning!

    Danielle, THANK YOU for the wonderful review....and your are right about NIGHTMARE STORIES (we hear about them too). The entire team at IG works so good together and we our styles are the same that it's great outcomes like this we are known for. I cannot THANK YOU enough for trusting us and inviting us to be a part of your BEST DAY EVER! We wish you a lifetime of LOVE & HAPPINESS
