I got married on June 28, 2013 and Donna Lance and her partner Rana did my hair and makeup as well as my whole bridal party, mother, MIL, and aunts. I was staying at a hotel near my wedding venue the night before and was really looking for a hair and makeup artist who were willing to travel to the hotel and that way all the girls could hang out and have fun that day instead of all being crammed in a salon. I was getting a little frustrated in doing my research to find a hair and make-up artist from a salon that would travel to the hotel as it was very expensive with a travel fee and they just charge more on everything. My lovely maid of honor came to the rescue and did a lot of research and came upon Donna Lance and I was so thrilled her prices were not only so reasonable but the pictures on her website of the hair and makeup looked beautiful. There was no traveling fee to the hotel and she was even willing to work on the price even more because there was so many of us. Donna was very professional and got back to me right away about scheduling a hair and makeup trial. I had wanted airbrush makeup since it was going to be a long day but I had heard from people that it looks fake and cakey in pictures so I was a little hesitant but when I had the hair and makeup trial Donna alleviated all of my fears. The airbrush makeup looked amazing and I took pictures that day and looked great not fake or cakey at all. The day of the wedding Donna, her makeup assistant, Rana, and her hair assistant all showed up early ready to go which was great because I was a little concerned about getting 13 people done on time. They were all very good at keeping everyone done on time while still doing an amazing job. I didn’t have extensions at the time of the hair and makeup trial and have never had extensions in so I was a little nervous about that but I cannot explain much I loved how my hair came out it was exactly how I wanted in the picture that I showed Rana. My make-up looked flawless – very natural, gorgeous and lasted the whole long day. I can honestly say I never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. My mom never likes the way her make up comes out and when she saw mine done at the trial she said she definitely wanted it done and couldn’t wait to get the airbrush and eyelash extensions. My wedding day she couldn’t stop telling me how pretty she felt. When I got the pictures from the wedding I even couldn’t stop telling my mom how young and beautiful she looked. All the girls’ hair and makeup looked amazing and I think they got as much compliments as I did. Some of the girls even had some intricate hair designs they printed out and Rana and her hair assistant were able to do it with no problem. Donna and Rana were so sweet and we had so much fun joking around with them. They made me so calm on such a crazy nerve racking day. I really was able to enjoy getting ready with my girls and will always have some wonderful memories since the rest of the wedding just flew by. I highly recommend Donna Lance Hair & Makeup, such a wonderful experience that I will never forget.
