Elena made sure everything went perfectly on my wedding day. She is truly an artist! I have already used her for other events :)

Let's start with the positives...my hair was done gorgeously at the first trial and on the day of the wedding. Let's talk about the problems that I had:
-My makeup was heavy handed on the first trial, so I got a "free" second trial.
-When asked about price even before my first trial, I got one price via email, then at the second trial (only make up had to be redone) I was told another price (approximately $25-$50 more than what was emailed). After mailing a $200 deposit, the day of the wedding came and the price was once again increased by $100 because I had a second "free" trial and she needed to be compensated for her time. THUS, my comment about the upcharges. She went from being reasonably priced to the most expensive. I was not about to debate the cost on the day of my wedding when I am pretty much at her mercy.
-The morning of the wedding (she arrived early at 4:45 instead of 5AM), she called to complain about the parking situation. one of my bridal party had to valet it for her. I live in Queens where most of this geography has difficulty parking. Luckily, I wasn't sleeping well anyway.
-Make up was a bit heavier than I would have liked, but it ended upbeing better that way due to the hot and muggy weather.
Overall, a great hair stylist, but a little to be desired on the make up and a LOT to be desired about conducting business.

Elena did my make up for my wedding and it turned out stunning. I don't wear much make up on a daily basis, so for me I really didn't want too much on for my wedding. Elena put me at ease and showed me a few different styles with trials. I was able to see how great her work was, and the day of my wedding I couldnt have been happier! I received so many compliments on my hair and make up. Elena truly did a wonderful job and made me feel beautiful on my wedding day.

I had spent some time looking for a affordable make up artist for my wedding on Nov 25 2011 when I came across Bridal Touch. From the very beginning Elena was very prompt in returning my phone call for a trial. She was absoultely wonderful. My hair and makeup was perfect. She made my bridal party look radiant. She is punctual professional reliable and wonderful to have. I cant wait for another event so she can do my hair and make up again

Elena is amazing!! She does beautiful work!! My make-up for my July 1st wedding was FLAWLESS ALL DAY AND NIGHT!!! And believe me I put it through the ringer (I was tearing all day and not one sign of make-up mishap occurred!!!). Elena is also very accommodating and is just such a nice person to work with. Her love for what she does really shows in her work!!! Everyone couldn't stop telling me how beautiful my make-up looked!!

As soon as I met Elena, I knew I wanted her to do the make-up for my wedding. My mom and I brought in pictures and had a trial with her prior. We loved both our hair and make-up. While her services are on the expensive side, she is exceptionally good. My make-up and hair stayed perfect throughout the day and looked fantastic in all of our pictures. My only comment is that we requested ahead of time to have one of my bridesmaid’s hair and make-up done as well, yet cut our time so close to the start of the wedding that she didn’t have time to get made up. Other than that, my mom and I both adored Elena and would definitely recommend her to brides (and plan to use her ourselves again) in the future!
