  • Lara did my hair for my wedding in September 2019. She was so great to work with and listened as I described and showed what I liked during the hair trial. She was able to create a stunning up-do that went perfectly with my dress and incorporated my veil easily. More importantly, it lasted - all day! Even after hours of dancing, photos, and running around. I've had my hair professionally done a few times in the past and consistently have pain from bobby pins, but Lara was able to keep everything in place with no pain throughout the whole day. It ended up making a big difference for feeling confident and comfortable. The wedding was early Sunday and I had concerns about being able to get my hair and the hair of my bridesmaids completed in time. Lara enlisted support from a co-stylist Cheryl and they both came on-site at 5am to get all our hair done (early!). Lara helped develop a day-of schedule to make sure we were on time and it relieved a lot of stress from the process. I would hig... Read more

  • Lara was wonderful, my hair and makeup came out beautifully and lasted all day, even in wind that kicked up during pre-ceremony pictures. I liked that my makeup lasted, but didn't look too heavy. I felt like myself. Lara was also super flexible with travel and services. I really appreciated that she helped calm my anxious mom and helped her feel and look great! She also did a wonderful job with my 11 y.o. step-daughter's hair and light makeup, working with a style she had picked out.

  • When my original hair and make up fell through due to personal reason, Lara was recommended. She went above and beyond all expectations! She not only accommodated my trial, but also a make up trial for my mom. She also worked with my twice leading up to the wedding to dye my hair, so it would be perfect the day of. She also worked with me leading up to the wedding with revising the contract, as some services were added, but she made it easy! The day of the wedding she showed up on time and kept everything on schedule, even with eight girls. I was so impressed with her work and how great of a person she is, that I now use her for all my hair appointments. I would highly recommend!

  • Lara was an absolute dream to work with! Not only were her prices incredibly reasonable, but she also was very organized and kept a large bridal party moving in a timely manner. My photographer said that with Lara, ours was the first bridal party to be ready AHEAD of schedule. She is incredibly talented and listens well. She also makes helpful suggestions. Her assistant was also so personable and professional. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. You should 1000% hire Lara for your hair and makeup!

  • I met Lara when I was in a wedding last year. She did a great job on everyone's hair, so I knew I had to reach out to her for my own wedding. Lara did my hair and makeup for my wedding on Nov. 12, 2017. Everything from the trial, to the day-of was a very smooth process. Any changes I asked for were made and never seemed like it was any trouble. She was very professional, and did a truly fantastic job. Cheryl did up-dos for each of my bridesmaids and my flower girls. Everyone was stunning! :)

  • Lara was a good listener and made my wedding day hair style vision a reality. She was very helpful at my trial, reminding me to bring my veil and helped me with the wedding day timetable for myself, my bridesmaids and the MOB and MOG. She arrived at the venue with a second, trusted hairstylist, and kept a schedule that worked well with the photographer and make-up artists. I truly appreciated her experience when she advised me get my hair done in the middle of my crew instead of last like other artists I looked at. I loved my hair and it withstood a night of dancing! Thank you, Lara!

  • Lara did hair and makeup for my August wedding in Waterville Valley and she was amazing! Lara was always super responsive and quick to accommodate when I had to keep changing the number of people who were getting services the done up to a week before the wedding. She happily added 2 helpers (Sarah and Cheryl) for the day of the wedding and even prepped a schedule for me to fill out to help things move smoothly the day of. They were able to do hair and makeup for 7, makeup for 1, and hair for 1 with ease and with amazing results! Lara was able to give me the exact natural with a "POP" look I wanted for my wedding day and hair that stayed up the whole night even though I was getting down on the dance floor for a good chunk of the evening. As the pictures come in from the wedding, I'm still thrilled with my wedding day look! I couldn't recommend Lara more! And get the trial done - you'll be happy you did when you aren't stressing about stuff on your wedding day. Thanks, Lara!!

  • She was amazing, really easy to work with and flexible and was able to do exactly what we wanted. I had a couple changes I wanted from what we did at my trial and she was able to nail it and gave me exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking to get their hair done with their special day. We also had a massive bridal party and she made it so easy setting up the times and accommodated all our bridal parties needs with her staff

  • I highly recommend Lara for hair and makeup services for a wedding. I hired her for my 7/8/17 wedding. I felt so beautiful and I was so happy with how my hair and makeup turned out. She and her team of 2 came to the Nashua hotel room and did hair and makeup for myself (the bride) and 9 other women (bridal party/mothers/etc). They were extremely efficient (ended ahead of schedule, even!), did touch-ups at the end, and most importantly did an amazing job. My friends and family raved about their services. My bridesmaids, mother, sister, and mother in law all looked gorgeous. I am so happy I chose Lara for my wedding. It didn't hurt that her and her two coworkers (Cheryl and Shari) were very sweet and fun to hang around with in the hotel suite. Everything went so smoothly - which is important on a stressful day like a wedding day! Also to note: I scheduled a trial with Lara earlier in the year at the salon she works it in Manchester. It was fun and a great way to get to know her and see w... Read more

  • Lara did a beautiful job with my makeup/hair and the makeup and hair for my mother. It was very important to me to look natural and elegant, and she really hit the nail on the head. She is great at working with little to no direction (for clueless folks like me), or if you have something very specific in mind (like my MOH, who knew exactly how she wanted her makeup and hair). Lara has experience in the photography industry, and you can really tell that she does makeup in such a way that it will look great in person AND on camera - not just one or the other. I can't recommend her highly enough.

  • Lara was amazing! She listened to everything I was looking for and more! I had a trial with her first for hair and makeup and both looked beautiful. At the trial we did a half up half down look which I loved, but on the wedding day I decided to switch my hair to an updo due to the weather and it looked awesome! It rained during photos and my hair and makeup still stayed all night long. She was really accommodating and understanding of what my bridesmaids and I wanted for the day. She and her assistant Cheryl really did make us feel special and beautiful! I would highly recommend her.

  • Lara did the hair and makeup for my wedding and she was PHENOMENAL! I found her by searching online and was blown away by her reviews, which were completely accurate. I came to my bridal trial showing her a few photos that had inspired what I had in mine for the big day and she took the photos and made them reality. She was responsive, professional, flexible, and right on time. She and her assistant were so fun to work with on the day of my wedding. She truly made me feel like a princess. My makeup was flawless and my hair was perfect. She was so patient in teaching my mom and sister how to successfully remove my veil. If I did it all over again, I would be sure to use Lara again. Choose Lara for your wedding and you can rest assured it will be the best choice you make!

  • Lara was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is super responsive over email and easy to coordinate with. Since I was planning my wedding from across the country, she kindly worked with my schedule for the times I was back visiting to do my trial appointment. The morning of the wedding went super smooth thanks to her well managed and efficient schedule she works with you to build. I had 7 bridesmaids, MOB and myself all getting hair and make-up done by 12:30pm, and Lara and her team executed flawlessly and my girls looked absolutely stunning! She took the feedback I gave her from my trial and made my vision come to life. I felt so beautiful and was obsessed with my hair (as were my guests!) and it help up through all the dancing over the course of the night. I am so thankful that I was able to book Lara and her team for my wedding day. Do yourself a favor and do the same!

  • First of all Lara's hair and makeup for my wedding was AMAZING! I felt exactly how I wanted to feel and look and have received countless compliments. My bridesmaids also looked perfect! Lara and her associate Cheryl were fun, super easy to talk to and flexible when it came to hair and makeup requests. They felt like extra bridesmaids! I also did a trial and Lara had no problem taking the reigns and making me feel comfortable choosing her but, was also not offended when I wanted to make a little tweak. Unfortunately, Lara and Cheryl fell behind schedule and this had a huge impact for the rest of the timeline of the day. We were super late to get to the venue which cut our time to take pictures in half. This meant we did not get all of the pictures we wanted with our wedding party and we also had to take time out of our reception to take pictures of just the two of us. It really stressed me out on an already emotional day and has also left an impact on how I think of the day. I would ABS... Read more

    Thank you for the compliments on my work, Sara. I'm very sorry that the timing was off. If I do recall you were not pleased with the start time I gave you, saying in an email that you didn't know we would have to start so early. To be honest we should've started earlier. In the last 5 wedding seasons I've done about 160 weddings and have never had an issue with the timing and schedule that I create. As stylists we work hard, fast and efficient on wedding days to ensure that everyone is happy and satisfied with their hair/makeup and in a timely manner. Every wedding and every person is different, there can be factors that come into play that may make someone's hair or make up take longer than another . We have to try to balance all of this and work together. Again, I apologize if (we) did not meet your expectations with the scheduling but I don't think we can be blamed fully. Best Wishes.
