  • My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Mine - she was absolutely wonderful. During our trial runs, she worked with us to develop the right look for each of us - my hair was down and curled with a flower hair-piece and my wife had a classic and elegant up-due. On our wedding day, she once again executed our hair perfectly, and did an equally amazing job with our makeup, even though we had each decided we wanted it to be a bit different than what we had done during the trial runs. Mine did a wonderful job on our mothers’ and sisters’ hair, and even took the time to re-do my sister’s hair when she changed her mind about what she wanted. While Mine is clearly a skilled and talented makeup and hair artist, what really made her amazing was her demeanor on the day of our wedding. Getting ready for your wedding is a very intimate event and having a stranger present certainly runs the risk of some awkward moments. This never happened though with Mine. She was professional an...

  • I am so glad I chose Modern Bridal Studio for my wedding day hair and makeup and for my bridal party, mom and mother-in-law. Carolyn was super responsive to emails and seemed very organized and on top of her scheduling. Alexis (hair) and Erinn (makeup) were so easy to work with and far exceeded any and all expectations I had. Not only were they able to deliver exactly the look I wanted but they did so for each of my bridesmaids and moms with speed, efficiency and an amazing attitude. I would recommend MBS a thousand times over to any bride who doesn't want to stress out about her looks on her wedding day. If you choose MBS they will take care of everything and make you look stunning!

  • Love the artists at Modern Bridal! It took so much stress out of the wedding morning to be able to get ready in the comfort of the bridal suite, and our hair and makeup looked amazing and held up wonderfully through all of the tears, outdoor pictures, and a raucous dance floor.

  • Mime from Modern Bridal did hair and makeup for me (the bride), my bridesmaids, and my mother – and it turned out beautifully! She was very professional, listened to what we wanted and made good recommendations about what would look best in photos, and our hair and makeup stayed put all day. The airbrush makeup was great! She did a fabulous job, both at the trial and on the actual day, and the value for money was great. I would highly recommend Modern Bridal for hair and makeup services!

  • Paolina from Modern Bridal Studio did my bridal hair and makeup, as well as my two sisters' hair and makeup. She did such an amazing job on all of us! We could not have been happier with the results. And the hair and makeup stayed put and looked great for the entire night. Paolina did an updo for my hair, which was absolutely beautiful, and she created a natural and soft bridal makeup look. Also, my sister was so happy with her hair and makeup that she said she will want to use Paolina for her future wedding! I highly recommend Paolina and Modern Bridal Studio. Also, it was very easy to work with Carolyn, the owner of Modern Bridal Studio.

  • Carolyn and her staff are absolute magicians! They made all of my bridal party feel like total rock stars. They were able to replicate whatever was asked for and also to create new amazing looks when the person was not sure what hair and make-up style to pick. They were also able to work with different types of hair and skin colors with expertise, efficiency and taste. Carolyn was super organized and professional in all of our interactions. They also were a relaxing and fun presence as we got ready for the big day. In short, I cannot recommend Modern Bridal Studio enough!

  • Emine did hair and makeup for myself, my mom, my sister and my best friend. Each of us couldn't stop talking about how happy we were with our styles and makeup. Our hair and makeup lasted through a long day and evening (along with lots of dancing). Emine was a pleasure to work with, was very responsive to our requests and wishes - I couldn't reccomend her more!

  • Carolyn was extremely flexible and easy to work with. I went to her for make-up and hair before a boudoir photo shoot (a wedding gift for my future husband). My make-up was absolutely amazing. I've never looked so good! The make-up was perfect for my pictures! My hair turned out beautiful too! I would highly recommend Carolyn because of her professionalism, flexibility, availability and overall value! She is a really wonderful make-up artist!

  • I was so pleased with my experience with Modern Bridal Studio! Carolyn was very helpful and responsive when I was trying to make up my mind on hair and makeup. Once the style was confirmed after the trial, she was on hand to provide general guidance and field frantic questions and requests. Carolyn and her staff accommodated a ten person bridal party and made the entire process easy, fun, and low-stress. All my needs were met and I would recommend Modern Bridal Studio to anyone without hesitation.

  • I used Modern Bridal Studio for my day of makeup for the bride and bridesmaid. I had Alexis for Hair and Erin for makeup. They were AMAZING, I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and it was in big part by them. Carolyn, the owner, was extremely responsive during the selection and scheduling process making the process pain free. They both came to my apartment for the trial and listened closely to what I was looking for, and nailed it perfectly. On the day off both Alexis and Erin were timely and professional and they recreated my look from my trial day flawlessly. They also both worked efficiently through my bridesmaid keeping us on track for the daily schedule. They also were so fun to have in the hotel room while we were getting ready! I highly recommend Modern Bridal Studio. I had a great experience and I can’t thank them enough!

  • First let me start by saying that my hair & makeup looked amazing on my wedding day (so did the bridal party). When I hear "Modern Bridal Studio," in my mind I guess I pictured a business with a professional salon location - or something similar. I booked this vendor based solely on reviews, sight unseen, trial, hair, makeup, the whole shebang. When I arrived at my trial appointment, I was surprised to find what I guess would be considered a modern office building with many different companies. The room itself was pretty small! Maybe 6 x 6? Not a huge deal; but a guy in an office a few doors down was having an extremely heated phone conversation, screaming profanities. This went on for basically my entire trial appointment, and I was very uncomfortable. My artist, Emine did a great job mirroring the picture I brought in for my hair style. She told me that I need to buy extensions (I have very fine blonde hair), which I did. She also did a wonderful job on my makeup.

  • My stylist was extremely chill and nice which was a perfect addition to the wedding day events. I love how she helped to customize my own undo look based on my style and wedding look. Was also a nice feature that I could use an outside make up artist as many vendors only provide package deals. Great vendor to work with!

  • Definitely pricey, but so it goes in this area. My makeup looked lovely and natural - not one bit cakey or overdone. My hair is difficult to work with, but she managed to do a beautiful job even though we changed the design the morning of! They were a little hard to get in touch with, initially and afterward, but everyone showed up on time for the trial run and on the wedding day so no complaints. This was the cost for my hair and makeup, and hair for four bridesmaids and two flower girls.

  • I chose Modern Bridal Studio based on the reviews from Wedding Wire and The Knot. At first I was very happy with my choice, my hair and makeup trial both went very well and I was happy with the results, however I did feel the price they charged for the trial was somewhat high. Unfortunately, during this process I had only communicated with the owner through email and had never been provided with a phone number, which I thought was a bit odd, but just chalked it up to that being the easiest way for them to do business. As my wedding date approached, I reached out to this vendor to ask several questions and ended up waiting 3-5 days for a response, on more than one occasion. I communicated my frustration to the vendor, just hoping for a simple apology, and instead was basically told in an email all the stuff that had been done right by the company. I have given this vendor 4 stars for the quality of service and flexibility, I would have given 5 for the quality of service because I loved... Read more

    Hi Kathryn, Thank you for reviewing Modern Bridal Studio. I am so glad to hear that you loved your hair and makeup! That is the best news. I am sorry to hear that you had a piece of hair falling down later into the evening. I am also sorry hear of your frustration with our communication. We take pride on a quick to reply to emails, normally within 24 hours. I do apologize that when you emailed on Friday evening that you did not receive a response until Monday afternoon. We definitely did not want you to feel as though your question was not important to us. We very much enjoyed working with you on your event and wish you the best!

  • Modern Bridal Studio did an amazing job on hair and makeup for my wedding! They take your requests on how many services to be completed, make a schedule for you and your stylists and book the appointments all for you. The stylists traveled out about 45 minutes to my wedding venue and stayed within our time frame. I loved my stylist Emine, from the trial to the day of, she was always personable! My wedding hair and makeup stayed beautifully throughout the the entirety of our outdoor summer winery wedding!
