  • Lou answered all my questions regarding hair and makeup! I am a very minimal makeup wearer and I felt comfortable talking to her about my experiences that were bad in the past with professional makeup and what I don’t want and do want. She provided me an updated proposal upon request (and super fast)! Excited to have her glam squad take care of my bridesmaids and I on the wedding day!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks so much Alyssa! Trust me I can't wait till the BIG DAY myself! I appreciate the time you took to leave this great review! We will take great care of you and your bridal party! - Lou

  • Amanda and her team were a perfect pairing for our wedding! Amanda met with the bride prior to the special day in order to create the beautiful wedding hair. She colored the bride's hair and worked with no effort to add extensions for the bride. When it came to the wedding morning, she and her team arrived ready to go straight to work. It was unbelievable to watch how efficiently they worked together wasting no time. Everyone was beautiful. So many guests have raved about all of the hair and makeup. Amanda even took special time to add a few curls into the flower girls' hair which was not planned. The team even took it in stride when the bride realized that she did not have the cuflinks that she had purchased as a gift for her soon to be new husband. As the bride was having an upsetting moment and had the hotel valets looking in three vehicles, Amanda and her team did not miss a beat! They were a calming force in what could have been a potential disaster on a wedding morning.... Read more

  • Mallory was fantastic to work with on my wedding day! She achieved exactly the look I was aiming for, and she was so easy-going, talented, and flexible. I will say as a tip for other brides - I originally wasn’t planning on doing a “preview” of the hair and makeup I wanted done because of the extra cost, but I decided to add that a few weeks before my wedding. I was really glad I did - the preview was a good chance for her to get to know how my hair would respond and to implement all my feedback effortlessly on the wedding day. I didn’t have to give her any notes the day of because she knew exactly what I was looking for, so I just got to sit back and feel pretty on my wedding day!

  • I am VERY picky about makeup, because I almost never wear it -- so the whole idea of doing makeup for my wedding was very stressful. My biggest fear is that my makeup would be overdone and I wouldn't feel like myself. Well I'm happy to say, the Glam Squad was AMAZING! The makeup was perfect for me, it made me feel gorgeous and pretty without being overdone. It was natural and beautiful and the hair was absolutely to die for. I'm so thankful for hair and makeup that allowed me to feel comfortable and to feel like ME on my wedding day! Thank you Glam Squad!!!

  • I had the pleasure of having Lou Stevens herself and Mallory do our hair/makeup on my wedding day. No trial needed, I knew they could nail my look with a few inspirational photos. They created a schedule that was honest with the anticipated timeline and we were ON TIME and FLAWLESS. It was everyone’s first time with airbrush and the magnetic lashes, and we were all in love. The lashes were quite difficult to remove as expected, so just bring makeup remover with oil!! They were professional and fun to get ready with. They happily touched up a few of us, and Lou even customized my own lip color after describing a mauve that I don’t think exists elsewhere! I paid the travel fee, and very thankful no one had to worry about travel logistics - worth every penny. I did my research on similar services in the area but the reviews helped me make a decision. They were a little high on budget, but it’s worth it! I let the ladies know the services were optional, but the wedding party happily ... Read more

  • Between my mom, my 8 bridesmaids, and myself, Lou Stevens Glam Squad did a perfect job. Everyone wanted a very simple, natural look, and the Lou Stevens team nailed it. We looked exactly how we wanted to look. They couldn’t have done a better job!

  • I used Glam Squad for my wedding last Saturday and I couldn't be more happy that we chose them. What a great group of talented women, who give you the best possible experience. My girls had an absolute blast getting glammed up on the big day! The team is so accommodating, professional and talented. I love that they offer a bridal preview session to make sure you are comfortable with your look before your big day! I couldn't think of one complaint if I tried, this was a 5 star experience from the first point of contact, all the way through until my wedding.

  • I cannot thank Dena and Sydney enough for the wonderful job they did for my wedding. Dena did everyone's hair plus my makeup. I will admit that I was really nervous about hair and makeup when it came to my wedding. I didn't know what I wanted and didn't know what would actually look good on me. When I had my trial with Dena, she was so sweet and patient and asked me a ton of questions to get an idea of what I wanted. Then she tried a couple of styles so I could see how they'd look. We quickly found one that actually worked on me. And she has great instincts when it came to my makeup. I absolutely loved working with her. She has such a calming presence and excellent style. Sydney did the makeup for my bridal party and hit it off with everyone. While I only had 4 bridesmaids they all had very different tastes and comfort levels. Sydney managed to capture an individual look for all of them. She was also super fun and fit right in to the relatively chill atmosphere we had going on that... Read more

  • Worked with Jane from Lou Stevens and she did such an amazing job with hair & makeup for me and my bridesmaids. Going into the wedding I was a bit picky. I don't wear lots of makeup and wanted something very soft and organic looking with my hair. Many of the styles I chose for inspiration were not great with my hair type. Jane was patient and helpful in creating something that achieved the look I was going for while working with my hair type. The updo was VERY secure and lasted all night. Thank you Jane!

  • I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Lou Stevens Glam Squad! I found them through a friend who is a photographer (who also had nothing but good things to say about them) – after booking them for my wedding, I started to go to them for color and haircuts too! I wanted a salon that could get to know myself and my hair prior to the day of my wedding (plus they give you 15% off your first visit)! Sandy is amazing – I LOVED my wedding updo and my girls also loved theirs as well! Huge shout out to Sandy, Sydney, Devin, and Amanda for making us feel so glamours. I fell in love with the salon, space, and staff. They made my wedding day so fun and relaxing - my bridesmaids loved getting ready at the salon and we even got done with our hair earlier than scheduled! We were able to bring in food, drinks, and play music all morning long. The squad makes the booking process so easy and their prices are super reasonable (I must have looked at 5-10 salons, prior to finding the G... Read more

  • Lou's Glam Squad was amazing. I had the pleasure with working with Malory for my bridal hair and she was such a treat. She knew what would look good on me and she was just excellent with everything. The trial went amazing. During the day of the wedding, Malory was wonderful. She did an excellent job with doing my family's make-up. Everyone loved it and I dance a lot and it did not budge at all. Tai was the one who completed all of my bridesmaids' make-up and they did such a great job. A couple of my bridesmaids have already gotten their make-up done before from a wedding and they said that the people in their previous wedding did a poor job. BUT TAI DID EXCELLENT. My bridal party were completely glamorous and beautiful in all of our pictures. They even received a lip kit so they could touch up during the day :) I would highly recommend Lou Stevens Glam Squad! I am really picky with make-up & hair and I praise what Malory and Tai did to me, my family and friends.

  • My experience with Lou Stevens has been a mixed bag. I will start with the cons so we can move on to the pros. We had two makeup artists for the day of my wedding. The first was to do my hair and makeup, plus my maids of honor, and the other was to do the makeup of four other girls. The second artist (the one who was not doing my makeup) was not great for several reasons. The eye makeup she applied to my sister-in-law looked terrible, despite having a reference picture. The color was wrong, and the shadow was hardly blended. She also didn’t do the cat-eye eyeliner that was a big part of the look. My SIL showed her the reference picture several times, pointing out the things that were missing, but it just didn’t seem to click. This brings me to what was ultimately the biggest problem we had with her - she was just NOT listening. At all. Another of my bridesmaids asked for a darker mauve lip color, and the artist kept showing her pinks. None of my bridesmaids who had that artist w... Read more

  • I loved getting my makeup trial done by Lou, she did a great job and took lots of notes snd reference photos. However, none of them made it to my day of stylist. Tanna was awesome and did a great job, it just took us longer since we had nothing to go on. The other girls looked great and my mom was absolutely thrilled with how her hair and makeup came out (she's extreemly hard to please). The two artists they sent to us were wonderful, professional and talented. We were lucky to have them. So overall I recommend Lou Stevens, but make sure you take reference photos as well and maybe a copy of the notes. Better yet, try and schedule your trial with your day of stylist.

  • My wife and I looked good on our wedding day, that's what we (over)paid for and got. My stylist did a great job that day. I made the mistake of thinking I would need to book hair and makeup more than 7 months in advance, but I wish I had. I reached out to several studios that were booked already and 2 of them recommended Lou Stevens. They seemed a little pricey (all wedding services are) but their work on instagram and most reviews were awesome. The extra fees are insane and not listed on their website. It says to contact them for a bridal trial, not that they're extra. Most other styling studios don't charge more than $100 (if anything) for a trial. Because it was a 2 bride wedding we paid $400 total for 2 bridal trials. At the trial our stylist looked at pictures we showed her, picked one and did it. I asked her for suggestions and other ideas but she had none. I've been to other bridal trials with friends and family where the stylist tried at least 2 different hair styles and played... Read more
