Malory did an awesome job during my preview appointment. She was so patient and accommodating as I changed my mind several times about my look. Just previewed my bridal portraits and my hair and make up look amazing. Looking forward to seeing her again on my big day.
“Felt our most beautiful thanks to the Glam Squad”
My bridal party and I had such a fun and relaxing time the morning of my wedding as we got glammed up by the extremely talented Amanda, Janelle, and Lindsay! We all felt our most beautiful thanks to the Glam Squad, who listened to each our preferences and did our hair and makeup to perfection. I can’t recommend them enough, working with these lovely ladies was definitely a highlight of my wedding day!
“Made my wedding day relaxed and fun”
The Glam Squad made my wedding day relaxed and fun! All the girls were pleased with their makeup and hair! My hair and makeup looked even better the day of my wedding, which was hard to believe because I loved it during the trials! My husband was nervous about the amount of makeup, and Amanda made sure I was perfect, and he loved it! I highly recommend the full monte package!
“My hair and makeup both turned out truly perfect”
After a very disappointing experience with another stylist, I contacted Lou Stevens–they’d been my favorite in terms of photos and reviews to begin with, but were more expensive. Their responsiveness was amazing for a wedding vendor, and Kaitlyn waived the fee to get a more experienced stylist because of the issues I’d had previously. There were things I wanted changed after my trial, but Kaitlyn clearly listened to what I said and also checked in with me multiple times throughout the day of styling to make sure I was happy. My hair and makeup both turned out truly perfect for what I wanted, and this was by far the thing I was most nervous about. She and the other stylist, Ashley, were flexible when bridesmaids weren’t always ready for their “slot” on the schedule and they all seemed very happy with their hair/makeup. I will say the cost was far more than I’d initially planned on spending, and higher than many in the area. I did have many other friends in Charlottesville whose hair/makeup I liked as much, but if your budget can handle Lou Stevens, I’d say they’re wonderful.
“Everyone looked amazing!”
The Glam Squad traveled over 2 hours to get my girls and I dolled up for our big day. There was a travel fee involved but it was worth every penny to have a hair AND make up team come to the venue. There were 12 of us total and they bought 3 ladies to get the job done. They were prompt, professional and put up with our craziness! Plus, everyone looked amazing! I was told by many people that my bridesmaids looked like they were out of a magazine – they’re already beautiful girls but the Glam Squad made them flawless.
Also, I was concerned about my make-up being ruined during the ceremony but I expressed my concern via email and was given great advice to pat my tears and not rub them. I happily cried throughout the ceremony and had not a smudge to speak of.
Thank you Glam Squad for your amazing work!
“Worth every penny and more!”
I am so glad I decided to book Lou Stevens Glam Squad for my wedding! At first I was a little hesitant because of the price, but they were worth every penny and more! They were very helpful throughout the planning process, and the preview really helped my stylist and I get on the same page so the day of the wedding was smooth. The stylist who did my hair and makeup was such a joy to work with, and after she was done everything looked flawless! It was exactly how i wanted to look on my wedding day. I can’t say enough good things about her and the team!! I would definitely book them again if given the chance.
“I was blown away by the service, professionalism and my hair and make-up!”
Well worth the money! We had both a hair stylist and make-up stylist. I was planning a wedding from out of town so finding a hair and make-up stylist was the most stressful thing for me. My bridesmaids and myself needed someone who knew how to work with African American hair and skin. Needless to say I was blown away by the service, professionalism and my hair and make-up! Everyone could not stop raving about my hair and my makeup was flawless… I usually do my own so I am a little picky. The company has an array of stylists that work with all types of hair and skin type, USE THEM!!!
“Professional, polite, and promptly responded to my questions and/or concerns.”
I highly recommend Lou Stevens Glam Squad! Throughout the planning process they were very professional, polite, and promptly responded to my questions and/or concerns. I have relatively high expectations in terms of what my hair and make-up should look like, so selecting a hairstylist and make-up artist for my wedding day was a very thoughtful process. I am so thrilled that I made the choice I did. Kaitlyn and Ashley were absolutely amazing! My bridal portrait hair and make-up looked just as beautiful as it did on my wedding day! Additionally, on the day of the wedding, we had 6 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and 1 sister all get their hair and/or make-up done. I am proud to say that everyone LOVED the final outcome. Each individual looked stunning, even the wedding guests commented how beautiful they looked. Throughout the night not a hair came out of place nor did anyone’s make-up smear! Lou Stevens Glam Squad was worth every penny I paid!
“Easy-going and open to our ideas, but still provided helpful feedback”
The ladies of Lou Stevens Glam Squad were amazing!! I decided to book Lou Stevens based on the positive reviews they received from past brides, as well as their ability to do both hair and makeup services for me and my bridal party. I was absolutely thrilled with my choice!
My mom and I went to Richmond for our trial, which was a great experience and I definitely recommend this for future brides. We got to meet Kaitlyn at the trial – they were really easy-going and open to our ideas, but still provided helpful feedback and suggestions given their experience and expertise. When it came time for the wedding, I knew exactly what tweaks I wanted to make from the trial, so I was confident I would love the end result.
For the wedding, the stylists traveled to my venue in Charlottesville, VA (and arrived EARLY!), set up and got to work! They did the makeup for all five of my bridesmaids, and hair and make-up for the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom. They accommodated everyone and made them all look gorgeous – with hair and makeup that lasted for the entire wedding – and importantly, made sure we stayed on schedule in the process. As for me, the ladies did an INCREDIBLE job and I received numerous compliments on how natural my hair and makeup looked – even my photographer stopped me while taking photos to tell me how amazing my hair and make-up was photographing! Based on the preview photos I have seen from my photographer, she was totally right!
For all you Brides-To-Be, if you want fun, energetic, talented professionals to make you look your best on your Big Day, Lou Stevens is the way to go!
“I greatly appreciated their patience and willing to find something I loved”
I saw Glam Squad highly rated in a 2014 Bridal magazine and reserved them over a year in advance. So worth it! They came onsite to our wedding venue where our hotel/ceremony/reception was – so great especially since it poured all day. They were flexible, kind, easy to work with and accommodated a variety of personalities and preferences. I was extremely late to my bridal trial as the train from Philadelphia (where I live) to Richmond was very delayed – they were very easy going about it and even took the time to re-did my hair a second time. I know that was extra time on their part but I greatly appreciated their patience and willing to find something I loved… great to work with, responsive, and happy to make sure you’re happy!
“AMAZING experience with the Glam Squad!”
I had such an AMAZING experience with the Glam Squad!! Kaitlyn was wonderful to work with and made sure to answer all of my questions pre-wedding! Lou herself did my hair and makeup, and it was FLAWLESS and lasted all day! She is such a special person and truly played a huge part in the day running so smoothly! They kept us on time, and we actually finished ahead of schedule! I’ve been part of a few weddings where makeup/hair took a lot longer than expected causing one to feel very rushed. This was not the case with Glam Squad! I HIGHLY recommend them!!
“I never stressed about a thing concerning my hair and makeup”
I had such an amazing experience with the Glam Squad. From start to finish.. my hair and makeup was flawless and lasted ALL day! Kaitlyn was amazing to work with and answered my emails and phone calls so fast! I never stressed about a thing concerning my hair and makeup. On the day of, everything went smoothly with no problems. They helped keep us on schedule and we even finished a little early! I highly recommend them. If you think they seem pricey (which they really aren’t compared to other options), just remember that you ALWAYS get what you pay for!!!
