Teal is fun, personable, and incredibly talented

I had the pleasure of working with Teal during a photographer’s workshop in which she put together 3 fantastic bridal looks for us. Teal is fun, personable, and incredibly talented. I would highly recommend her for your wedding day!

I can be very picky when it comes to my hair and makeup but Teal did an absolute wonderful job! She was very professional and kind, she listened to what idea I had in my mind and ran with it. I could not have been more pleased with how my look turned out and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you so much!!!

I can’t say enough good things about her

I had the pleasure of working with Teal for hair & makeup on my wedding day. I can’t say enough good things about her. She was incredibly sweet and accommodating for my and my sister + mom. She really went above and beyond to help make the day run smoothly – and was super flexible when it came time to take photographs. She was extremely patient with us when we had to pause or move to a different spot in the room to best capture the light. The hair and makeup that she did for my mom and sister was truly fantastic. I heard SEVERAL comments about how beautiful they looked. My hair and makeup was equally as beautiful. She really took the time to make sure that I was happy, and made minor changes when I wasn’t sure about the look. She also helped keep me calm and ensure me that everything was running smoothly. I would definitely recommend her to any of my family or friends, and will certainly use her again if I’m ever in need of hair and makeup.

Working with Teal was an absolute dream!

Working with Teal was an absolute dream! I wouldn’t say I was an overly stressed bride, but having someone who was so calm the entire day was more than I could have asked for. Obviously hit all the basics – on time, incredible hair and make up for all of the people she worked on – but where she really shined was all of the “extras”. The little things that you don’t think about – a sweet text message the night before the wedding, a text the morning of asking if I needed coffee or anything 😍, making sure that all of my bridesmaids were happy with their hair and make up, sticking around until the first look to make sure everything went smoothly. I could keep going! My hair and make up was exactly what I wanted and when I wasn’t sure about one part, she was able to quickly change it to make sure I loved it! Loved working with her and if I ever need my hair and makeup done again, she will be first on my list!

I would use Teal for hair and makeup again

Teal did my makeup and hair trial and I was very happy with her professionalism and how personable and attentive she is! I had an idea about my hair and she executed it perfectly; it was a piecey boho style updo. I was also very pleased that she was open and took any feedback about how I wanted my makeup to look. Later that day I had engagement photos and both my hair and makeup stood up to the rain and cold. I absolutely love my engagement photos, and got compliments from my friends and fiancé about how I looked. So much so that my mother asked me if Teal could do her hair lol. I would use Teal for hair and makeup again for an event and would recommend her, hands down!
