Testimonials

  • "MAB was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process! I booked only hair services for my wedding day for me and 8 other girls! The contract process was so easy and they were very transparent about costs and policies! Mindy did my hair and it was more than I could have even asked for! She was so sweet and fun to work with and fit right in with all of my girls! Everyone was so happy with how their hair turned out and we got so many compliments! I would highly recommend booking them for your event!!"

  • "My artists for my wedding day were Mindy (hair) and Bianca (makeup), and I couldn't be happier with them! They both were lovely, kind, professional and made me feel so beautiful on my special day. They worked with me and my bridesmaids, listened to our feedback, and happily made adjustments until everyone was thrilled with their final look. I loved my trial too, which was great to get to meet the ladies beforehand. The staff at MAB is very friendly, responsive and easy to work with. A great price and a favorite business among me and many fellow Virginia brides. Cannot recommend them enough!!!"

  • "I'm so glad I chose Makeup by Ana B for our wedding. They were responsive, professional, and talented. Cori (hair) and Tanya (makeup) made me feel like my best self and the wedding day hair/makeup was identical to what I loved at the trial. All of the bridesmaids, etc. felt beautiful and the artists really listened to what each individual wanted. I would recommend them to anyone!"

  • "Hala and Lexi were phenomenal - very professional, diligent and took the necessary precautions for my small COVID wedding in 2020. They did a great job and I felt beautiful. I was so grateful that they were still willing to come given the circumstances and it only made me that much more excited to work with them again in 2021 for our larger wedding. Scheduling was also very easy and they were always very responsive. I didn’t have all my girls for the small 2020 wedding and they had no problem waiving the minimum payment to accommodate the circumstances. Highly recommended!"
