  • I could not have been happier with my decision to book Modern Bridal Studio for my wedding day. They were extremely professional, timely, talented, and very experienced! Carolyn (owner) and all of her stylists (Amina and Vicky) went above and beyond! My entire bridal party was VERY happy with the overall experience. Definitely recommend!!

  • I can't recommend Carolyn enough for any bride looking for an up-do and all-day-long fantastic makeup. She is professional, prompt, talented and fast! My bridesmaids had their hair down and mine was up in a messy bun and she absolutely nailed all of it. Our makeup was cake-free perfection for the entire day (my wedding went from 10 AM to 8 PM).

  • Modern Bridal (Ulrich and Jacinda) did the hair and makeup for myself and my entire bridal party on the day of our wedding. They arrived early and finished right on time (if not ahead of schedule), which was such a relief given the large group. Everyone was very pleased with their hair and makeup and looked fabulous. Ulrich really took time with me to make sure the makeup was perfect. It help up through what ended up being a very hot, active, and fun evening! Carolyn was easy to work with for scheduling and payments and the hair and makeup artists were flexible on the day of due to some members of the party arriving at different times. Ulrich and Jacinda were very talented, professional, and easy to work with. The service was top-notch and at a reasonable price for the area - I definitely would recommend them!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Dani and Jacinda on my wedding day. Dani came to my apt to do my trial. I was a little hesitant since my apt does not have the best lighting, but she brought a lighting stand and it worked great. On the day of, Dani and Jacinda met us at a hotel by our venue at 630am. They got through 4 ladies by a little before 9am, which worked out perfectly as we planned it. Carolyn was great with coordinating everything. Just know they do not have a physical location in Old Town anymore.

  • I had a great experience using Modern Bridal for my wedding in May! I was super last minute booking hair and makeup (2 weeks before) and Modern Bridal was able to set me up with Ulrich for a trial and wedding day services for myself, mom, and 4 bridesmaids. My trial and day of experience with Ulrich went so well! Ulrich was both excited and awesome at working with my naturally curly hair that I wanted to keep curly for my wedding. He was also able to make my mom, who is not a makeup wearer, feel confident and natural for my wedding. Would recommend both Modern Bridal and Ulrich highly!

  • Jacinda and Carolyn did an amazing job enhancing the beauty of my four bridesmaids, my mom, my future MIL, and moi. I first fell in love with Modern Bridal Studio via their Instagram handle (check them out now!) and was drawn to their effortlessly chic style. My trial with Jacinda at their Alexandria studio was so much fun – I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. We tweaked a little bit here and there throughout the two our prep session and my vision was complete. Day of, Jacinda and her partner Carolyn arrived at EARLY and transformed our hotel room into a mini beauty salon. They kept to schedule while also enhancing our getting ready girl time (90s jams in the background, ‘Friends’ on mute on the TV, gossip flowing… the best). My hair and make-up felt so natural throughout the day – and the girls and moms were stunning! Wish they could be my glam squad every day.

  • I was so pleased with my experience working with Modern Bridal Studio. After doing quite a bit of research, I'm so glad I decided on Modern Bridal for my hair/makeup services for my December 2017 wedding. The owner Carolyn was very easy to work with, and I found her to be responsive - usually would respond to inquiries in about 24-48 hours. My trial hair/makeup went extremely well with Ulrich that we were fortunate enough to have him do all of our hair and makeup the morning of my wedding. It was a very early start with potential for snow, so Ulrich met at our hotel about 15 minutes early around 4:45am before a 10:00am ceremony. He did an AMAZING job with everyone - my hair and airbrush makeup, my mom's airbrush makeup, and hair for the mother of the groom, bridesmaid and matron of honor. He is very talented, pleasant, and professional. Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous! I wore my hair down, and he pinned it a little off the side to make sure the curl stayed throughout the whole day.... Read more

  • The Modern Bridal team that handled hair and makeup for my wedding was wonderful. The team was lead by Alexis Reese who was so incredibly talented, fun and bubbly. She and her team believed in bringing out the best in everyone's natural beauty and not making anyone look overdone. All of the bridesmaids, my mother and stepmother, the MOG and I really felt like our best selves. I am so thankful that we used this wonderful team.

  • My bridal party and I had a truly exceptional experience with Modern Bridal Studio for my November 2018 wedding. They arrived promptly and did hair for 5 and makeup for 7 perfectly within our time frame and achieved the perfect look for everyone's personality and the overall feel of the event.

  • Carolyn, Ulrich and team were great to work with. I was a particularly nervous bride about hair and makeup, so I chose to have two trials with Ulrich for my wedding day hair and makeup. While it was worth it because it put my mind at ease (and I got to try the extensions on that Carolyn perfectly matched with my hair), I honestly would tell other brides not to do the second trial because Ulrich will come through -- trust me! He is very focused, caring, patient and detailed. He delivers! I was so happy with how his work turned out. Additionally, I had eight bridesmaids who all loved their hair and makeup!! The team MBS brings is amazing. They were on trend and followed my girls' inspiration photos really well. My bridesmaids have been in many weddings and they all had nothing but praise for the process. I would also note that this is an expensive vendor, but I think it was worth it because they're true professionals and know what they're doing.

  • Alexis was fantastic! She came to my house to do the trial for both my mom and myself, and worked with us for several hours to make sure she understood everything we wanted - and making recommendations that were spot on! The day of, Alexis was on time, finished everyone early, leaving time at the end for final touchups (and extra time for myself). The second hairstylist created GORGEOUS updos for all of my bridesmaids - each unique to their own wants and style. I highly recommend modern bridal (especially Alexis) for brides looking for affordable packages and modern hair and makeup styles!
