"I want to tell you, though, how happy I was with my wedding hair and makeup. I really appreciate the extra effort you took to make to the Hotel Dupont on time given your morning wedding and to fit me, Noelle, and Kathleen all in. And the actual hair & makeup -- I received so many compliments from guests and it looks fabulous in photos! I've had one or two makeovers before and they always made me really pink-toned and the makeup looked so obvious. But not yours, I really loved what you did! Seriously, so satisfied. Made me wish I knew how to do it myself for the future! "
"I was going to email you today to thank you for your wonderful service. I loved my make-up but I especially loved the way you took time to work with me and you were so receptive to all my request. I never felt uneasy with you or felt that you imposed your ideas on me. You were very open to all my suggestions and knew exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much for that. That is such an important quality."

"Becca was fabulous! She was incredibly communicative and helpful during the planning process with me changing things back and forth. We did a trial ,and she did an incredible job. The day was perfect because I didn't have to worry about a thing. My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted. And the bridesmaids looked beautiful. I couldn't have asked for anything more. If you're unsure about a beauty professional - book with Becca, you won't be disappointed."
"I wanted to thank you so much. Everyone looked beautiful and uniquely them. My mother not only looked beautiful, but she felt beautiful and confident the entire night. I wanted nothing more for her. You were more than a makeup artist and hair pro for us. You really helped ,y mom feel like the beautiful human being she is inside and out on our wedding day. I literally cannot thank you enough for saying yes to our wedding and being such a part of our day.?
Mother of the Bride
"Rebecca- You are very talented! Could not have been happier with my daughter's makeup and hair. So glad I did a trial for myself (MOB) as well beforehand. I was thrilled with your advice and talent and wore a hairstyle that I would not have thought I would ever wear. It held up beautifully and so did my trial hair. Thanks for making a "old mom" feel special and confident. You were amazing with everyone's hair and makeup and you captured their personalities when you created their styles."
"Becca, I wanted to personally thank you for going above and beyond for our wedding day. Not only did you make myself look incredibly beautiful but I'm extremely thankful you fixed my mom's hair (done at another salon) at the last minute. She she was so happy with the magic you preformed. The next day after we partied until 4 am, I still had perfect makeup and hair. Even through a million tears. I swear you are a hair and makeup goddess! I will definitely refer you to everyone I know! Thank you again for everything."
"Just wanted to say thank you again for doing the very best makeup I've ever seen - I had 55 people at the shower and every single one of them was asking me who did my makeup. You're the bomb, the best, the QUEEN! And I am so excited you're going to be dolling me up on my wedding day. Thank you, Becca."
