“It can be hard to find someone who does both wedding hair and makeup. I think she is great at both, which is a big deal!”
“I was a fairly low-key bride, and had a solid idea of what I wanted. Based upon my hair type and length, Enlightened Styles helped me refine this vision into a wedding style that I both really loved, and that was still very close to my original plan.”
“For makeup, I knew that I wanted to look VERY natural because I don’t like wearing makeup. Jacquelyn made me look beautiful and exactly how I pictured. Even my husband loved my makeup (he’s not a big makeup guy either!).”
“I love that she also desires to use products that aren’t full of chemicals.”
“Jacquelyn was very amenable to my needs and my budget. Her prices were very competitive.”
“Enlightened Styles were set up and ready to go before me and my bridesmaids showed up at the location. She finished with plenty of time for us to relax before the ceremony. We didn’t feel rushed at all.”
“Jacquelyn was so sweet to work with and I loved receiving the care and attention from a small company (vs. a larger salon).”
“I wanted a stylist to come to my wedding venue the day of my wedding. Other salons charged to travel. Enlightened Styles did not.”
“I was very happy with the service and attention Jacquelyn gave me during the planning process (and throughout the entire process, actually). She promptly returned my calls and answered all of my questions—which were a lot.”
“I looked exactly as I hoped I would on my wedding day, and my hair and makeup lasted through all the emotions and festivities.”
