hair was done beautifully, meticulously, and on time…

Teal and her team made my wedding day a total dream! They arrived early and ensured everyone’s hair was done beautifully, meticulously, and on time. She even did my mom’s hair too on a last minute request. I have no words to describe how much I loved my hair, I was so comfortable for the entire wedding, and after hours of dancing all night it totally held secure!! Teal is an ABSOLUTE professional, and I unequivocally recommend her as the beauty expert for your special day!

felt like a long time friend…

Wild Emerald was my knight and shining armor when I was struggling to find hair and makeup teams available on a Sunday for my wedding! Teal was professional and at the same time felt like a longtime friend! My makeup stayed on all night and my hair never felt loose! She truly made my wedding hair dreams come true!

made me look and feel like an absolute sun kissed goddess…

Teal & Sommer were an absolute dream to work with! To be honest I was a bit anxious to find the perfect hair and makeup ¬†team for my big day. But as soon as I messaged Teal she was so wonderful and answered my endless questions so quickly. Everything from my trial to the day of, Teal was in constant communication and just so easy to work with. They were on time and fit right in with my bridesmaids! Everyone was in love & I mean in LOVE with how they looked. They nailed every single makeup and hair request my girls gave them! And to say the least, Teal made me look and feel like an absolute sun kissed goddess. It was even better than I could have imagined. The romantic hairstyle, to the bronzy glow, it was just perfect. If you’re looking for a top notch bridal team, you need to book Wild Emerald Bridal!

no touch ups needed!

Teal was an amazing vendor at my best friend’s wedding. She did my makeup for the event, along with other members of the bridal party, and did the hair and makeup for the bride and mothers. She kept her used brushes separated from her clean brushes very purposefully and provided clean product. I had my makeup done at 7am and it lasted all night until 2am after the reception! No touch ups needed! I would recommend her any day, especially because the fake lashes that she put on were so light that I forgot that they were even on me! THANK YOU TEAL, for making my best friend look like an angel on her big day.

10/10 recommend booking her for you wedding…

Teal and her Team were AMAZING! From my bridal trial, to my rehearsal dinner + wedding, Teal listened and created a look that I could never have imagined for my wedding! I have always been unhappy with my hair getting professionally done, but I was SO happy with Teal and her work. She was organized, friendly, and SO easy to work with. 10/10 recommend booking her for your wedding, OR any other events you want to get glammed for!

they nailed it!

I highly recommend the ladies from Wild Emerald Bridal! I had a destination wedding on October 2, 2021. Both Sommer and Emily traveled to my wedding to do hair and makeup. They did an amazing job! Because it was destination I opted out of a trial run which made me nervous, but they nailed it! Both my hair and makeup, as well as my bridesmaids hair and makeup looked incredible! They were also super friendly and easy to talk to. I highly recommend!

I can not recommend the amazing team at Wild Emerald enough!!!

I do not even know where to start.. The morning of my wedding was such a relaxing, fun, and beautiful time and Wild Emerald played a huge part in that. Not only were Teal and Emily early and so prepared, they were so kind and joyful and immediately set the mood for the morning. My mom and girls were so impressed with their hair and how quickly Teal and Emily were able to achieve such a cute finished product. Teal did my hair and my makeup and I could not have loved her more. Leading up to my wedding day she was always top of every question I asked and she shared in my excitement for the big day. She is so talented, but she is more than that, she is a genuinely warm individual. I cannot recommend the amazing team at Wild Emerald enough!!!

everyone looked STUNNING!

Teal and her team are AMAZING! I just used them for my wedding this past weekend. They did my hair and makeup and my bridesmaids, mom, and MIL’s hair. Everyone looked STUNNING! And the trial run was so worth it!! Teal and Stacey were arrived early to make sure they were set up and ready to go. If we needed anything touched up before they left, they were more than willing and were able to give us looks better than I could ever expected!! Definitely would use again!

I would 100% recommend…

I would 100% recommend Wild Emerald Bridal to any and every bride out there! Teal was so quick to respond to my inquiry, so helpful when discussing ideas for my big day, and so creative with making sure everything was perfect and secure on the wedding day! My hair stayed in place all day long and I could not have been happier with it! She was so efficient and made myself and all of my bridesmaids look so beautiful! If you’re searching for the perfect stylist- you’ve found it!

Amanda Thiss

professional and so naturally talented…

Teal and her team are AMAZING! They are SO professional and so naturally talented. I couldn’t be more happy with how my hair and makeup turned out for my big day. As much as I was nervous sweating all day my hair AND makeup stayed! I have never felt more confident and beautiful in my life. I highly recommend booking with them!

my expectations for my hairstyle were far exceeded…

Wild Emerald did all the hairstyles for myself, my bridesmaids, and the mothers of the bride/groom on my wedding day. Teal also did the makeup for both mothers. Everyone absolutely LOVED Teal and her team’s hair and makeup!! They arrived on time (early which was nice), were very professional, and completed everyone’s hair and makeup very efficiently! We completed everyone’s looks ahead of schedule and even had time to add on one extra person’s makeup look. I had chosen a complicated looking Rapunzel braid with the use of extensions and a hair piece. Teal was able to complete this look easily and beautifully both at the trial and on my wedding day. My expectations for my hairstyle were far exceeded- the braid was perfect and I received many compliments on it. I also appreciate Wild Emerald’s willingness to drive to my venue location (I believe it was over three hours for them). I highly recommend this service!
