Best of luck to you with your future weddings, I know all the brides and bridal parties will be thrilled with their final looks!” Kayla Tabacco

“Linda and Kim are great! Very accomodating and go-with-the-flow. Each of my girls, including myself, had a vision of how we wanted to look on the day of my wedding and Linda and Kim brought all of our visions to life effortlessly! “ Beth Easton

“Linda was such a joy to have complete my hair and makeup on my wedding day! She traveled to me and was so easy going and attentive!! She listened to what I wanted and my hair and make up was even better than I imagined! Her price was within my budget and she calmed my nerves as I got ready for the ceremony. I would highly recommend Linda for hair and make up if you want to look like you and even better!”

Mimi Frederiken

“I truly had a great experience with Bridal Biz on my wedding day! It was so nice not having to go anywhere, they came to us and really made it a fun and stress free morning! Everyone was very happy with their hair and it was exactly what I invisioned for my wedding. I would highly recommend Bridal Biz to any bride looking for a convenient, high quality and stress free experience!” Katie Snow

“Kim and Linda did a phenomenal job with my hair and makeup, and my bridesmaid’s! They not only made us look stunning, but they were fun to work with and had more than enough time with each of us. The hairstyles and makeup lasted the entire night and we truly couldn’t have been happier! I’d recommend them to anyone!” Kim Flynn

“Linda was wonderful, I am so glad I hired her to do my makeup along with the bridesmaids! There are several makeup artists out there and trying to find one that you trust to make you look beautiful on your wedding day is a scary thing. Linda did a trial run and we were able to tweak what I did and didn’t like. What I liked about Bridal Biz is they offered airbrush, came to the house and were more than accommodating with respect to start time. Linda also dressed very professional and was educated on her products. Some other places I tried the artists dressed in scrubs, didn’t wear makeup and had no knowledge of their products. In my opinion I feel it would have been better to have two artists so the schedule with hair d makeup wasn’t so tight. Seeing we had so many girls and only one artist we had to start extremely early to fit everyone in. However, Linda did a great job with keeping everyone and schedule and was able to fit everyone in with ease.” Alisha Boehum

“Loved linda! She made my 3 bridesmaids and I’s hair absolutely stunning! I was in love with my hair and she made it exactly the way I had visioned it to be for my wedding day! She was able to take me and my whole bridal party in only 2 months or so before my wedding date because my other hair stylist last second had one of her girls back out and wasn’t going to be able to get all of our hair done. Linda definitely came to my rescue and was the best decision I made! Extremely happy!!!!!” Heather Eaton

“Kim was super responsive and answered all of my questions and eased all of my worries. Kim and Elena were awesome and professional even when they had to arrive at my house at 5 AM! They were prepared, ready to go, and got 7 girls’ hair and makeup done in time for an 11 AM wedding. I would definitely recommend this very convenient service to anyone having a wedding and needing beauty services. They come right to your home and that is a huge relief, a time saver, and very reasonably priced” Christine Johnson

“Kim and Linda were amazing such a strong team and they laughed along with us. I absolutely loved my hair and make up. My bridesmaids and my mother raved about their hair. My makeup and hair made it through sweat and tears and lots of dancing!!! Thank you ladies!!” Jessica Hellis

“Linda was amazing, She was very professional right from the beginning, and working with her before the wedding was so easy. She is very quick at replying and wants to make sure you get what you want as the bride. On the wedding day all the girls loved the job she did on their hair and makeup, and I loved mine. It lasted all night without having to adjust anything.” Katie Stiffler

“Linda was very friendly and was able to recreate the hair style and makeup look I wanted from the pictures I showed her. She did a trial run with me to make sure the day of final look was what I wanted and came out to my hotel which saved me from traveling on my wedding day. She was great and did an amazing job.” Christine Choma

“Linda was AMAZING! She was sweet, flexible, and excited for us! She made my bridesmaids feel so comfortable, and we had an awesome time getting ready for the wedding day with her. Everyone looked GORGEOUS, while still looking like themselves. ABSOLUTELY work with Linda for your wedding. She will keep your day stress free and you will look your absolute best. “ Elizabeth Jerabeck

“I met Linda when she was doing the make up for my best friend’s wedding. She traveled to location and was the first person there so she would have plenty of time to get through everyone and have time for touch-ups (if necessary). After such a great experience I had Linda do the make up for my wedding. She is so easy going and fabulous to work with. She will accommodate any level of make up needs! She never pushes back if there is a special request for something. Super easy to work with and does beautiful work!” Helena Dickerson

“Linda and her assistant Sonja were awesome to work with. We all had both hair and makeup done. My bridesmaids and I looked fabulous! Both Linda and Sonya are super talented and professional. They came right to our hotel room which was so convenient. I would recommend Linda and Bridal Biz over and over.” Kristy Portalatin
