  • Elana does beautiful makeup, listens to you and helps you to feel your best. Very natural and felt like myself. Athina was an amazing stylist and was able to bring my vision to life. Perfect people to be apart of my morning!

  • I first worked with Elana for my wedding in 2012! I loved how my makeup and hair turned out! Since then I have recommended her, and her staff, to cousins, best friends, and now most recently- my sister! My little sister got married this October and we worked with Vesna from Elana's team. She did such an amazing job! My sister, my mom, and I looked so beautiful and she really listened to what we wanted. I really would not work with anyone else. Since we first started working with Elana and her team- we have not worked with any other artists for any major events in our lives. I recommend Elana and her team with the highest confidence! This is the team you will want to work with!

  • Elana and her team are simply the best! I am so grateful that a friend recommended them to me for my wedding. Elana was amazing to work with- so responsive, helpful, and flexible- couldn't have been better! I had Athina (hair) and Jessica (makeup) for myself, my bridesmaids, mom, and MIL. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful and they were so happy with how it all turned out. It was the most relaxing, stress-free getting ready experience. I can't recommend them enough!! Thank you Elana, Athina, and Jessica!

  • Thank you ladies for providing me with great service. I found Elana Darrus Makeup & Hair on Google. I reached out, and got a response in a polite and timely manner. Athena and Jessica were able to come out to my location and provide me with hair and makeup trial at reasonable price! I appreciate the fact that I was not treated any different as a customer for only choosing the makeup service. Jessica, the makeup artist, provided me with the perfect amount of makeup. I did not want over-the-top glamour. I wanted something more natural beauty taken up a notch. Jessica delivered. I loved my makeup. It was not overdone. I did not feel like a clown on my wedding day. I genuinely felt beautiful. She was very polite, punctual, and awesome to work with.

  • Elena and her daughter were exceptionally profession, kind, considerate and helpful. They were so much more than make up artists - they made me experience wonderful and unforgettable with their personal touch and care.

  • I had the privilege to have these three lovely ladies help myself and my wedding party get ready on my special day. Stephanie, Vesna, and Athina. Truthfully, I could not have picked a better company to help us all get dolled.Elana coordinated everything and was extremely organized and friendly. I made about a thousand changes (because more and more people ended up wanted to get their hair and makeup done because they all saw my trial pictures) and Elana easily added more people onto the list to get their hair and makeup done. The schedule was perfectly planned out allowing us to have a nice and relaxing morning before the wedding but more importantly, we were all finished on time and everyone LOVED their results. Lastly, I just want to express how well Stephanie, Vesna, and Athina made our vision come to life. All of the women in my wedding party are very natural and do not care for any crazy hair do or loud makeup. All three women listened and made us look natural and beautiful. Aga... Read more

  • At the last minute, I needed to find a hair stylist and makeup artist as my original hair/makeup person was exposed to COVID. My friend, who had worked with Elana and her team previously, highly recommended them. I was in a pinch as I was less than one week away from my wedding date, so I took a leap and booked Elana and didn't even do a trial! I sent Elana inspiration photos of the look I wanted to achieve and she was able to secure Athina for hair and Jessica for make up. Elana also reassured me that her team was taking COVID precautions and following safety guidelines. The day of the wedding Athina and Jessica showed up right on time and they did my hair and makeup as well as my mom's, MOH, SIL and aunt. Everyone looked STUNNING and the ladies were SO happy with how their hair and makeup turned out. I would highly recommend Elana and her team and I can't wait until my next event so they can glam me up again!

  • Elana was recommended by my photographer, and I'm so happy I was able to work with her for my wedding! Elana did makeup and Stephanie did hair for my two bridesmaids, my mom and me, and it was all perfect. Elana was patient and helpful during my makeup trial when I was indecisive about lip color, and she worked with me to find an alternative to the strip eyelashes we used at the trial because I thought they were a bit too much. She used individual lashes instead and they turned out so well. I don't wear much makeup generally so wanted a natural but enhanced look and she nailed it. I didn't get hair done because mine is short, but Stephanie still helped pin my headband on. My mom's and bridesmaids' hair looked great! She listened to them and made their hair look exactly how they wanted it. We all felt beautiful and our makeup and hair lasted all night. They were both so sweet and easy to work with. I highly, highly recommend Elana!

  • Searching for a hair and makeup stylist was one of my more difficult tasks. For me, it came down to accommodating an efficient schedule. I recently stood up in a wedding where four women (bride included) had hair/makeup and one child had hair done. She had one stylist, and we started at 9 o’clock for a 5 o’clock wedding. The wedding started late because the bride was still getting ready. I had three women (myself included) for hair/makeup and one child for hair. Due to the small size of my party, many salons would only send me one stylist too. I had to be ready by 1:00 to start getting my dress on. What time would we have to start?! Elana Darrus was very accommodating and had no problem allowing me one makeup artist and one hairstylist. We started at 10 o’clock! It was affordable and we didn’t have any kind of upcharge for two stylists. My deciding factor may have been a practical one (and one you should definitely consider) but it turned out perfect! Our stylists were ... Read more

  • EXCELLENT! Working with Elana was so easy, from start to finish. I had Kim for my hair and Jessica for makeup and they were simply amazing. I am a no makeup ponytail kinda girl, so it was really fun to get all dolled up for my wedding. I did a practice run with both ladies and was so pleased with their work. My hair was up and perfect all evening. My make up was stunning. It really helped make my wedding a perfect day. Thank you Elana, Kim and Jessica!!!

  • Very unprofessional and terrible at communication. Canceled on me last minute right before the wedding. Unless you want someone to flake on you, would not recommend... save yourself the headache!

  • I had a big group of people getting ready with me the day of our wedding, 9 ladies in total. Elana was very accommodating and was able to schedule 2 hair stylists and 2 makeup artists so that we could get through everyone quickly! Stephanie did my hair and Lena did my makeup - both did great jobs and really listened to what I wanted during the trial, so the day of was super easy and not stressful. I would recommend Elana Darrus for sure!
