  • Elana did my makeup for my senior prom and it turned out beautifully! She kept checking in to make sure I liked the look and offered to alter anything I was uncomfortable with. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist for any event, and I hope to work with her again!

  • I used Elana for makeup and Jessica M. for hair for myself and my 5 bridesmaids. I absolutely loved Elana's makeup - she kept it natural but made everyone's eyes pop for the photos. Whatever lashes she offered looked beautiful on everyone, so I would definitely recommend getting those. Elana also allowed me a second hair trial - I did a poor job of communicating what I wanted initially, and she matched me with a new hairstylist when I was better able to explain the look I was going for. Jessica did a beautiful job with my hair and with all of bridesmaids. I enjoyed working with both of them and would definitely recommend to any bride.

  • Elana recently did my bridal make-up for me, my bridesmaids and my mom, and she did an absolutely beautiful job! My make-up was perfect and I felt beautiful on my wedding day. My make-up lasted all day and night. All I had to do was touch-up my lipstick a time or two. Also, my mom and bridesmaids really liked their make-up as well. Elana was so sweet, and truly an artist. She does great work and could not have been nicer to work with. I highly recommend her!

  • Elana did a great job with our makeup and Kelly was a great hair stylist for my daughter's wedding. They worked with us and listened carefully to understand the look we each wanted (bride and MOB), and gave us a very natural and beautiful look. Elana and Kelly were easy to work with, warm, and very professional.

  • Scheduling my makeup/hair trial with Elana and her team was super easy - I had my trial done by the hair and makeup artists (Pamela & Elizabeth) who would be there on my wedding day, which made me feel at ease since they would know exactly what would look good on me after the trial and there would be no hiccups on the day of my wedding. Throughout the planning process, Elana was very organized and would send me updated contracts throughout, showing me how many bridesmaids would be getting hair & makeup done (trust me...people change their minds a lot!) and the time slots they would have to make sure everyone would be done on time. Pamela did my hair as well as my 6 bridesmaids, and Elizabeth did my makeup and the bridesmaids + 1 of the moms helping out the day of. They made everyone look PHENOMENAL and they were SO speedy! We were done early, which was great because we had more time for pictures/relaxing before my photographer got there. I love how they come to you, wherever you and yo... Read more

  • Elana and Mary Jo were a dream. There was no pressure for a hair trial, but I'm glad I did it. I thought I knew what I wanted but ended up changing my mind after my trial. The travel fee is completely reasonable, and Elana was so flexible to work with our timeline and even accepted some last-minute opt out's without any additional charge. All of the girls looked lovely, and it was a great way to start our day.

  • Elana and MaryJo were absolutely wonderful! They were incredibly accommodating and understanding throughout the entire process, were always very prompt and made all of my bridal party look stunning on our wedding day. I looked incredibly beautiful and could not have asked for more. I highly recommend Elana and her team for your wedding! Wedding was Oct 2016

  • Kelly and Lena did hair and makeup for myself, my mom, and four bridesmaids at our hotel the morning of the wedding. They were amazing--they gave everyone a look they felt comfortable with, adjusted hair and makeup so everyone felt beautiful, and were lovely to chat with. I would highly recommend them both!

  • Elana and team was recommended to us from our photographer (Jenna Marie Photography!) and we're so grateful for this recommendation. We were looking for salons all over the city to do our hair and make-up and not only were they a fortune, but then we had to figure out driving and parking all over on the big day, which is why we were grateful that Elana and team comes to us! Elana and Jessica were fantastic, on-time, friendly and it felt like they really enjoyed what they do! I did a trial with both of them, individually, at my home which I really appreciated. TIP: I recommend doing your make-up trial the day of your engagement photos - it was so nice to see how the make-up will photograph ahead of time. : On the big day it did take longer than we had allotted for and I lost a contact through the make-up process, but all in all I wouldn't have changed a thing. I loved my make-up and hair, both which lasted all day and night!

  • Elana and Kelly were phenomenal! We were looking for classy hair and makeup artists to do on location hair and makeup for our summer wedding at Cantigny Park and were so thrilled when Elana and Kelly were available! Elana did a wonderful job giving all of my bridesmaids a romantic but natural look despite their varying skin tones and complexions. She also did a great job replicating the makeup we'd agreed upon at my trial (highly recommend a trial a few months beforehand to experiment and nail down exactly the way you want to look on your special day)! When I wanted a little more eyeliner and a little more bronzer without looking over done, she did it in an instant. Kelly was great with our hair! She managed to do a quick chignon for my picky mother and made all of my bridesmaids have similar looking hairstyles while incorporating their different hair lengths and preferences. I showed her a picture of what I was hoping my hair would look like in a low, loose chignon and she re... Read more

  • Elana did my makeup and I received so many comments on how awesome the makeup was for myself and the bridesmaids. Her prices were very reasonable compared to some of the other makeup artists out there. My makeup trial lasted about 2 hours because I kept going back and forth, and she was very patient with me. Sometimes I had trouble getting a hold of her, and she was a little late the day of the wedding, but everything turned out well and she even added some extra people for makeup. Lauren did my hair - she did an excellent job and I and my bridesmaids received many compliments on both hair and makeup. Lauren was always responsive to my texts and emails. Prices were very reasonable. They both came to the hotel we were getting ready at. Thanks so much ladies for making my day so memorable!

  • Elana and one of her hair stylists came to my hotel room and did hair and makeup for me and one of my bridesmaids. Beforehand, there was a cost to have a test run of the hair and makeup. I opted to do a test run of the hairstyle but not the makeup to save money. My experience with Elana was fantastic! Even without the test run, the makeup was beautiful, and her warmth and positive attitude helped start my wedding day well. My experience with the hair stylist was more mixed; the hair styles of myself and my one bridesmaid were beautiful, but she (the hair stylist, not Elana) did try to push hard to get another bridesmaid to get her hair done as well, which I had not requested at all, and seemed hurtful as the other bridesmaid had already done her own hair and it looked lovely. We understand that Elana contracts out to different hair stylists for these sorts of events; my experience with Elana herself was top notch. I recommend Elana wholeheartedly and without reservation, but would sugg... Read more

  • Elana and her MUA Julia are amazing! They were super nice and accommodating and while I liked my trial, I did not love it, so I ended up going with someone else. However, I still wanted to leave a review because of how fantastic they are. The prices are super competitive, and Elana is the absolute sweetest lady ever. The only downside was the responsiveness, but I noticed this with a couple other Hair & Makeup Artists as well; they take much longer than other vendors to reply to you, which was frustrating when I first started looking for HMUAs, but again, Elana wasn't the only one. Plus, it's prime wedding season so I know they are all busy! She was much faster at responding after my trial though.

  • My make-up was perfect for my wedding! I used Dawn, and she was not only sweet as can be but also incredibly talented. I loved the trial ahead of time that helped me feel comfortable with my choice. The day-of the event, we had the bride, 11 bridesmaids and two moms. Elana's team got us done on-schedule and well within our time to head to the church.
