I was perusing online for outstanding makeup artists in my area to book for my wedding day. I am a very picky person.. picky about food, clothes, cleanliness...you name it! So once I found Allison's information, I knew right away that I needed to have her do my makeup for my big day! Her online portfolio is just stunning, and I was determined to book her! My wedding was only about 2 months away, so I was not really in the position to be picky. I decided to try my luck and reached out to Allison...and she was available!! I was so excited and could not wait! My trial was perfection.. I could not stop smiling! And she just didn't sit me down, do my makeup, and send me off on my way. She sat me down, asked about my upcoming wedding day, my dress, how I would wear my hair, the colors of my flowers, the colors of the girls' dresses, etc. And she even evaluated my skin.. texture, tone, you name it! This woman knows what she is doing :) When my wedding day arrived, I was so calm knowing that Allison would be coming over to do my makeup. It looked absolutely breathtaking. I received SO many wonderful compliments, and have never felt more beautiful! Allison is truly the best of the best. She is professional, genuine, and so SO talented! I was lucky to have had her do my makeup and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

I hired Allison to do my makeup and my bridal party's makeup on location for my wedding. They worked with my timeline and they did an exceptional job with my girls. I opted for airbrush, so at my trial (which was the day of my bridal shower), she did the base the same but adjusted the hues and style so that my wedding day make-up wouldn't be an exact replica of my bridal shower make-up. It was such a bonus because I got two totally different looks for two very special days! She's great, and the day of one of my bridesmaids decided to add on airbrush and another two added on lashes and the team was totally fine with that.

This is a little belated (wedding day 4/21/12), but I wanted to make sure I passed on my recommendation for Allison! She did my bridal makeup, as well as mother of the bride and makeup/lashes for several of my bridesmaids. From the trial to the big day, she made sure I loved everything, and made the first step in the wedding day prep so relaxing and simple! My mom and I both opted for airbrush, and it was fabulous - it was still pristine at the end of the night. My girls were thrilled with her work as well. Allison's studio is adorable and she is so professional and talented, on top of being a complete sweetheart - I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you, Allison! :)

Allison is such a kind, genuine person! As soon as I met with her, she made me feel comfortable. On my wedding day, there was a lot going on in the hotel room. Allison made sure that I was relaxed and that I was enjoying my day as a bride. I had airbrush makeup applied, which was the best decision! It was flawless and the colors she chose for my eyes and lips were perfect! I felt so incredibly beautiful! Allison is extremely talented and professional. You NEED to hire her for your big day!

I am so glad I found Allison and her team!! They were absolutely amazing!! I can't even put into words how grateful I am to have had her and her team a part of my special day!! So much compassion for what they do!! So many changes were made throughout the process of preparing for my wedding and she worked with me on everything without frustration or any type of negative attitude which is so hard to come by these days. I so highly recommend the ARS team. You will not be disappointed. The makeup is amazing and feels amazing! Worth every penny paid!!!! Allison definitely touched a piece of my heart!! Allison is a very personable person and her and her entire team make you feel at home and comfortable. I could go on and on but the point is gotten I hope!!

A friend of mine had found Allison a few years ago when searching for a make-up artist for her wedding. Both of us being dance teachers, are very picky about make-up. For my friend to trust Allison was a big deal!! I ended up getting eyelash extensions and airbrush make-up for my friends wedding. It was amazing!!! I always worry about make-up staying fresh and I'm constantly checking my face in my compact, but the make-up lasted all day and night with no touch ups! I continued getting lash extensions for over a year after the wedding. Which leads me to my own wedding...it was a no brainer to use Allison and her staff. Six women of my bridal party did the airbrush make-up and five had their hair done by the staff and everyone was so happy!!! Make-up lasted the entire day and everyone's hair stayed put. Allison and her staff are completely professional...punctual, accommodating, talented and just fun to be around! Having her and the staff be a part of my day made the morning go so smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend them!!

I am so pleased that I went a little extra for my wedding day and had Allison Roth do Extreme eyelashes for me!!! The product was high quality and the service and studio were amazing!!! My wedding pictures showed the perfect eyelashes just as I had hoped they would. The lashes themselves stayed on for close to a month and did not harm my own lashes at all as they shed. Allison is a highly talented makeup/lash artist and I will be using her again as well as recommending her to everyone!!!! Well worth the price for high quality work!!!!

Allison was kind, gentle and soothing while applying the lash extensions. She has a rare talent. I highly reccommend the lash extensions. I had a very positive experience with Allison and I look forward to getting lash extensions for another large event or vacation. I feel so pretty with the long lashes, that I've hardly worn make-up, which has been a huge time saver in the morning.

Sometimes I feel these review sections don't do justice for exceptionally amazing wedding professionals. Allison Roth Studios falls in that category.
I found Allison Roth Studios through my photographers. Her name graced every image of brides that I found to be stunning. I knew at that moment I had to book Allison.
I met with her to do a trial a month or two before the wedding. Allison did my makeup and Colton did my hair. Now, I am very picky about both my hair and makeup, but the instant I met with Allison I knew I was in good hands. Allison sat me down and took down almost every detail about my wedding. She looked at my dress, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, and countless other details to make sure the hair and makeup worked with everything about my special day.
After the trial there were a few details here and there that I was unsure of. Allison was more than accommodating with whatever question or worry I had. She put my mind at ease that the day of everything would be perfect, and it was.
Not only were her and the other employees of Allison Roth Studios punctual, they put together a tight schedule, and coordinated everything with my photographers so that the morning of my wedding was a breeze.
Allison did makeup for myself and two bridesmaids, and Allison Roth Studios did hair for myself and 8 bridesmaids. They listened to every girl and made sure that each girl found her hair to be perfect before they finished. Everything turned out beautifully.
I can't say enough about Allison and her team. They truly helped make my wedding day perfect!

They do top notch work. Expensive but they definitely deliver.

My experience with Allison Roth studio was superior to that of my other vendors. Allison was proactive in her scheduling and suggestions for the wedding day. My trial was pleasant and my makeup artist Logan was great. I was so happy and confident with the way I looked. I would definitely recommend this studio to other local brides!

Allison was the best vendor I selected for my wedding! She not only made a girl who dislikes feeling done-up feel comfortable and beautiful in photo-worthy make up but it also lasted through 5 hours of hard core dancing in 85 degree heat. Can't say enough for the results. Plus she's a joy to work with!

Allison did my makeup for both my engagement photos and my wedding - I cannot recommend her enough!! I wanted a more natural makeup look, and she made my makeup look both natural and beautiful. I love looking through my wedding photos and seeing the amazing work she did, helping me look my best on such an important day. She was also absolutely great to work with - very nice and accommodating- when you walk into her studio you feel like you are walking into a friends house! Her work is so diverse, she can make you look naturally pretty or a glammed up bride. I was so glad I got to work with her - you should hire her!!

Allison Roth is amazing!!! I first met her at my trial and my sister and my mom just loved her! When she came to my house on the day of the wedding, she just did such an amazing job. My bridesmaids looks so gorgeous and they were all so so happy with their makeup, and their hair! Most of the girls said this is the prettiest they have ever looked! Thank you Allison for helping make my wedding day the best day ever!

If I was writing this review just for the make-up service I would have definitely given five stars. Unfortunately I purchased the gold package from ARS which included hair for me and my bridesmaids. Three of the five members of the bridal party (including me, the bride) had there hairstyles falling out before we even made it to the church. I stepped into my dress (as did my bridesmaids) so there were no outside factors that causedthis. As I was standing in the lobby of the hotel waiting to get on the trolley I heard clink clink and there went two bobby pins ... this continued to happen as we maid our way to the church. My bridesmaids did the best they could to try and resecure. I would have thought that a professional hairstylist would have been able to anchor bobby pins better. I have been in several weddings and I have never had a problem with my hair falling. This was a first for me. My one bridesmaid's hair fell so much that she ended up taking it down right after the reception entrance.
The make-up however was FANTASTIC!!! Allison and her team did an amazing job on everybody and were super accomadating with even my pickiest bridesmaids. All of our make-up made it through the whole days events with very little touch up needed. I will defintely utilze her again for my make-up needs.

Allison and two of her staff members arrived at our house promptly at 9:30 and got right to work on 5 bridesmaids, the Bride and myself (MOB). I loved the way all of the girls makeup turned out - there was a 12 and a 14 year old included and ARS did a wonderful and age appropriate job on their make-up. We had a trial for the Bride and even though she looked beautiful, we had to do a little bit of work after the make-up session to get the smoky eye look she had requested. Also, she asked specifically for the shortest eyelashes available at her trial but somehow that was lost on the day of and her lashes were a little longer than she had hoped. Still, we thought the experience with Allison Roth was fun and worth the splurge!

Allison and her team did a fantastic job on my wedding day!
I had known Allison for years, but didn't try her makeup studio until the trial for my wedding - I wish I had gone sooner! She does a great job with makeup and I couldn't have been happier with how wonderful my bridemaids hair and makeup turned out!
She covers all bases before the big day - asks for pictures, color schemes, themes, etc. She goes the extra mile to make sure your look goes along with your wedding!
I'd recommend Allison and her staff to any bride in Pittsburgh! I'll be going bac - just for fun ;)

Allison Roth does amazing work and I highly recommend her for every bride!! She was so easy to work with from day one with her upbeat, welcoming, and friendly personality. She is truly a genuine person! We had so much fun during the makeup trail and the big day. I have never been a person that wears a lot of makeup and she made my look romantic and natural, just what I wanted. It didn't even feel like I had makeup on! I never felt so beautiful in my life! It looked amazing and lasted the entire night after non-stop dancing! I didn't even want to wash my face; I wanted to keep it on for the next day! Thank you so much Allison, you are such a talented artist! -Michele Julian (Mozes) Wedding June 28, 2013
