  • If you are looking for absolute professionals for your wedding hair and makeup look no further. I am so happy I chose We Only Do Pretty for my wedding. Eliora and Lauren were beyond amazing. Through two hair trials due to a dress change and then traveling to my out of state wedding, it was a smooth and seamless process. I wanted a very complicated braided hairstyle I was not even sure was possible and a specific look for makeup and they both executed it perfectly with seeming ease. On the morning of my wedding they arrived promptly and got right to work – knocking out six bridesmaids, three moms, a flower girl, and me. Everyone looked so beautiful and all my bridesmaids were very happy with their looks – many pictures were taken. What’s more, they had a great blend of Lauren’s upbeat enthusiasm and excitement and Eliora’s calm focus, a fantastic duo that made me and my bridal party very comfortable and relaxed. I cannot recommend them highly enough, my hair and makeup was eve... Read more

  • I used We Only Do Pretty for hair and makeup services for my wedding. Kristin was incredibly responsive and met with me for a trial and a haircut prior to the wedding. She is friendly and creative and came up with a beautiful style that was perfect for me. Kristin also created beautiful styles for my bridesmaids and was fun and charismatic to work with. Lauren provided makeup services on the day of the wedding and was similarly fun and creative. She did an amazing job with my bridesmaids and family, who all have very different skin tones and types. Lauren was totally accommodating and also provided additional assistance with applying fake lashes. The whole experience was fun and the end result was beautiful and authentic. I would absolutely recommend We Only Do Pretty!

  • As someone who does not do my own makeup very often, finding someone to do hair and makeup for our wedding felt nearly impossible. I originally booked We Only Do Pretty on a whim, after seeing they did a wedding for a Cubs wife, but I am SO grateful for that impulse decision. Lauren and Eliora immediately felt more like friends than people I had hired. They made my trial extremely relaxed and fun, and made sure that their expertise was made known when I needed help envisioning my look for the big day. They showed up promptly the morning of my wedding, and made all of my bridesmaids look absolutely stunning! When I asked Eliora to change up my hair from what we did in my trial, she had no problems switching gears and translated my vision perfectly. Both ladies kept me relaxed and laughing the morning of my wedding and set such a wonderful tone for the rest of the day. I can't thank them enough for making me truly feel like the most beautiful bride on my wedding day!

  • Kristin and Lauren are the absolute best!! They are incredible with hair and makeup and they are super fun to be around. They are the perfect dynamic duo for an event. My wedding party had the best time with them. They perfectly executed the hair and makeup of each person in my wedding party. They were also extremely accommodating whenever someone was dissatisfied with something. They did not take the critique offensively whatsoever; they just wanted their clients to be happy. Krysten is also my regular hairstylist because of how great she is with hair. I love how laid back she is. I enjoy going to see her and have recommended her to my friends as well. She is the perfect blend of exquisite hair skills, and friendship that makes going to your hair appointment an event to look forward to! Needless to say, I highly recommend We Only Do Pretty for wedding events! They have a forever customer out of me. :)

  • I hired We Only Do Pretty for hair and makeup for my wedding and it was the best decision! They did such an amazing job with hair and makeup. Even after 8 hours, the whole bridal party still looked amazing. Eliora was so accommodating and flexible! She made it so easy to plan for the day and make any last minute changes. We had a blast hanging out with her and her team all morning. The hair and makeup was truly amazing, but the overall experience was even more amazing!

  • Lauren and her colleagues were absolutely wonderful to work with! I wasn’t really sure what style I was looking for and they helped me find the perfect combination. They all were so friendly, professional, and flexible. It was chaotic with 12 or so people to receive services and they ended up finishing early! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

  • When I was first looking for a HMU vendor, I was drawn to the natural and beautiful makeup as well as the gorgeous braided hairstyles I saw posted on their Instagram. Meeting Eliora in person for my bride trial was an absolute dream. We easily clicked and she listened so well to all my requests and concerns down to the smallest detail regarding my desired hairstyle and makeup preferences. She was also able to point me in the right direction for hair extensions and was very quick to respond to an emails I sent after the trial with questions. I really appreciated both her artistic vision and how organized she and Ashley were on the day of with sticking to the schedule to ensure everyone was ready to go on time. The magic both Eliora and Ashley worked on myself, my bridesmaids, and family members was incredible. Even with last minute style changes, Eliora was able to fully capture the exact look I had always dreamed of having on my wedding day, and boy, did those lashes and airbrushed ma... Read more

  • I loved Eliora and Lauren! They were professional, punctual, and my hair and make up looked great. It was super humid and everything stayed in place. They were flexible when I added and removed people and really friendly. Definitely recommend!

  • Oh my goodness...Kristin and Lauren are miracle workers! They made my girls and I look like movie stars in the most natural way! They set such a high standard that one of my engaged bridesmaids was unhappy with all other trials and rushed back to book We Only Do Pretty! Incomparable service - love these ladies!

  • I can't say enough about this company. They were so helpful and responsive with my questions. I love the a la carte option they have because not a lot of places offer that and it was so flexible for me and my bridesmaids. Ashley was AMAZING. It was so fun having her there with us that morning. She did an amazing job with everyone's make up. My make up was flawless the whole day/night. My lashes stayed on. My face was not oily (that is a big problem I normally struggle with). She even gave me a little touch up bag that inlcuded extra glue for my lashes (wasn't even needed), extra lip gloss, finishing powder, and oil wipes. The price was perfect considering the excellent service you get. We did not have a hair stylist as my cousin did all of our hair, but I am sure that service would be equally amazing.

  • I had a great experience working with Eliora and Lauren from We Only Do Pretty for my wedding day. My wedding coordinator recommended WODP and I reached out to Kristin for pricing and details. They offer really great prices in comparison to other bridal hair/ makeup services. I read their great reviews and saw some photos and decided to book them. I had a trial with Eliora and Lauren and they were amazing! They are so fun and easy going. They listened to exactly what I wanted and made it come to life. On the day of, they showed up on time and were ready to roll. From the beginning, my biggest request was that I wanted a later start time and they were very accommodating, bringing an extra person to curl hair to make things run faster. They fit right in with my group of bridesmaids and brought a calm energy to the group. It can be stressful to get a big group ready on time but they actually finished earlier than expected and I was never worried about timing! They also did lips and touch... Read more

  • After having another makeup vendor back out on my trial appointment 1 hour before my engagement photos, I was extremely cautious to book another. I found We Only Do Pretty, and loved the natural, but beautiful styles and affordable prices. Makeup was one of the most important aspects of my big day, and I am so glad that I decided to work with We Only Do Pretty! I had my makeup trial with Lauren - she was amazing to work with! Lauren is so sweet and easy to connect with. She listened to my vision for my wedding day, and brought it to life. I am extremely particular about my makeup, and Lauren was able to take all of my concerns into account and ensure I would get exactly what I was hoping for. Lauren is reliable and professional, and showed up on the big day with her bubbly personality and welcoming attitude - it was like we had all known her for years. She was able to adapt to everyones particular styles (even our moms), and we all felt so beautiful! I would highly recommend Lauren... Read more

  • My makeup was amazing and my hair looked cute. The ladies were patient and so talented. Their attitudes were so positive and fun. We got ready in a hotel and I even got complimented by a stranger in the elevator. Both hair and makeup lasted all night. Everyone looked amazing.

  • I had a hard time from the beginning with this team. My initial trial was not with someone certified to do makeup which I did not know the first time. They were nice enough to comp the first trial and give me a second with a different artist. It was OK. I decided to do a second trial of make up and I loved it. The day of my wedding my makeup was completely different than both trials and it was so white the photographer said I had to fix it. The second trial with hair was like a half holding my hair up and telling me what it would look like and that I would not be happy unless I bought $320 extensions. I felt pressured so bought them. The day of, since my make up was not correct I was an hour late and missed photographs with my bridesmaids and rushed through photos with my parents. Very disappointed. A few bridesmaids liked their hair and makeup and a few did not. If you have high expectations I would not recommend this company unfortunately.
