So I figured I'd update this from my previous review that said they were amazing here...

First, I should have never pursued to keep going to this place after the first trial. On the first day, which was supposed to be hair AND make-up...I show up ready to see the whole picture (hair with make-up). Come to find out Stacey called out sick that day. So I only got make up done and had to return the following week for hair. When I showed up for hair a week later, I had to wait 15 minutes for Stacey to come over because she was running around with another stylist trying to decide what color she should put on her hair extensions. I should have walked out!!! Instead, I figured ok she's a little crazy but maybe she's cool. Seriously I should have never returned. Ended up loving my hair, so I made sure I confirmed with Stacey that she was available on my wedding date. Her reply, "of course, I wouldn't be doing a trail if I wasn't." Yeah sure! Seriously 2 weeks went by until I heard anything about doing a price proposal. Instead, I get an email saying that she has to leave with Betheny Frankel to do a show the week before my wedding so I'd have to come in for ANOTHER hair trial. Ok, i agreed. Instead of accommodating the person with the money (me) they replied ( another 2 weeks later) that the 2 stylists I was to meet are only available at certain days and times. Totally inconvenient!!! Let me remind you, this all is taking place OVER A MONTH after the first trial. So for one month I got messed around with. And I wasn't planning a wedding within a year like usual, I only had 4 months until my wedding date. So having hair & make-up was kind of a matter of urgency at this point, especially for a June wedding. I'm still waiting for a refund but I doubt that will happen! I also found it to be really strange that Stacey and her receptionist asked me to write reviews on here. So I did. I wrote a really nice review before this, and less than a week later Stacey flaked on me.

You have been warned about this place. Honestly, you only get to have these experiences once in your life...go somewhere where you'll feel like a bride, and they'll treat you the way you deserve. This place deserves negative 10 stars!!!!!!!!!!

I hired several hair stylists from Once Upon a Bride for my wedding for my bridal party and myself. I contemplated using them at first because the owner Stacey Lynn was the biggest B**TCH you could ever encounter. She is just a miserable person that constantly complains. I loved the way she did my hair and figured her personality didn't matter if she was that amazing at hair. I totally regret hiring them. First, they were an hour late showing up. Second, the stylists were drinking all the champagne we put out for our bridesmaids and were completely drunk, therefore did a horrible job and my bridesmaids actually complained about how their hair had never looked worse! I had to agree unfortunately. As for my hair, Stacey did an awful job...nothing like the trial. She was in a horrible mood and had a bad attitude the whole morning which was really upsetting since it was my wedding day. The whole experience could not have been worse. And for the price they charge I have no idea how they are still in business. They have so many positive reviews on here because they actually have their friends go on and write them...they are FAKE! Please beware because you will waste your money. To make matters worse a friend of mine was recently in a wedding in which they were hired to do hair and she said the entire time they were talking about brides and giving their actual names and saying how crazy, fat, etc they were! Very unprofessional. You are much better off using a salon like Oscar Blandi, Warren Tricomi, or Andre Miska. I only wish I had done that!

I just got married yesterday and I wanted to write a quick review before my honeymoon tomorrow, but Sofia did a BEAUTIFUL job for my makeup and all my bridesmaids. My bridesmaids loved their makeup as well. I was complimented all day about my makeup too.

Stacey was a pleasure to work with as well. She was very responsive to my emails. Thank you!

I cannot begin to express how happy I was on my wedding day when Once Upon A Bride and Shari Cohen made me feel magical. Not only was I stressed beyond belief but also the pouring rain did not help; yet Shari made every crease, blemish and under eye puff disappear. I truly looked like a movie star, effortless, flawless, glamorous makeup. My pictures are stunning and I am still floating from my magical day. Shari Cohen is a genius. Could not recommend them higher!!!!

I can't recommend Once Upon a Bride enough! My best friend/maid of honor used these services for her wedding in October 2004, and I was struck by how beautiful her hair and make-up looked at her event, along with the professionalism of the staff who styled her. I kept Once Upon a Bride in mind when it came time for my own event, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results thus far. First of all, Stacey was prompt and informative in answering all questions, either via phone or email, which goes far in alleviating pre-wedding day stress. Angela, the hair stylist with whom I was paired at my hair trial, understood the look I was going for right away: I brought in a few pictures that appealed to me, and she was able to replicate it exactly. However, before deciding upon the style, she encouraged me to try out a few similar yet distinct looks just to make sure that I was confident in my choice--and when I decided that my initial choice was the final one, Angela not only made my hair look beautiful, but it felt natural and comfortable. When it came time for my make-up trial, Jonny sat down with me and discussed the look that I was going for, and he created a beautiful and classic look for me. However, when both my fiance and father felt that the look wasn't "me" enough. Jonny and I met for another trial, where he was able to tweak the look that I desired to suit everyone's needs. On top of both of Angela's and Jonny's obvious skill, they couldn't have been nicer. I'm so excited for my upcoming wedding day, thanks in no small part of Stacey, Angela, Jonny, and the entire atmosphere of Once Upon a Bride!

'Beautiful, Amazing, Natural, Stunning"....were just some of the words I heard from my guests that attended my wedding and I would agree..I felt gorgeous and yet, still me.

Moani did an amazing job making a person who never wears alot of makeup feel natural and fresh. The most important thing that Moani did for me was walk me thru her process at the trial. On the day, my makeup looked great from the start to the finish.

Angela did an FANTASTIC job on my hair! She helped turn my bob hairstyle into funky full braids/bun. I LOVED it! I wanted to keep my new hairstyle for days!!!! Guests loved it so much they kept saying how all of things, my hair was the best part!!

Both ladies listened so well which helped me gain the look and feel I was hoping to attain for my special day. They were both on time and worked very professionally.

Looking forward to hiriing them again for future parties!

Stefanie and Sophia did an amazing job with my hair & makeup respectively! They were soo nice and easy to work with and both were super accommodating and flexible. I have never felt more beautiful in my life!

And Stacey was extremely responsive and responsible! She made sure everything was set up (as I had a out of town wedding in Vermont) and everything went off without a hitch!

Now i just need another excuse to get my hair and makeup done so I can hire them again!

My experience with OUAB was exceptional! Stacey did my hair and Sofia did my makeup for my wedding. I had never felt as beautiful as I did that day. They both did such an amzing job. In addition to being extremely talented, Stacey and Sofia were such a pleasure to work with. Everything was perfect. I cannot thank them enough!

I came to Once Upon a Bride for my Aug 2011 wedding hair. I had a specific up do in mind and when I went to Angela at OUAB, she was not only able to replicate the hairstyle, she made it better than what I had pictured. I also tried out another hairstylists at a different shop, but Angela was a million times better. Angela was a pleasure to work with and by the end of the trial, my mom and I had fallen in love with Angela.
Unfortunately, my wedding date fell on the weekend of Hurricane Irene. When my (family friend) makeup artist bailed the night before my wedding, Stacey was able to find me a makeup artist within an hour... and when we had to cancel our wedding the next day, Stacey was amazingly sympathetic. She made a very difficult situation much easier to deal with.
I would highly recommend OUAB. Stacey and her crew are quite amazing.

If you want the the BEST in the business, look no further! As Stacey told me, she was born to do hair. I have very long, pin straight hair, not easy to work with and I had no clue how I wanted to wear it at my trial. She worked wonders and guided me to the right style for me. Be prepared, Stacey is opinionated, only because she knows what she's talking about! She is also one of those hands-on owners, which I loved - she called me directly to discuss my hair, what would/wouldn't work, and prepared the big-day schedule putting me completely at ease.

For make-up, Moani was AMAZING. I don't wear a lot of make-up normally, so I was very concerned about looking overdone. The result was beautiful, I still looked like me...just a little more WOW factor.

Looking forward to the wedding day, hair and make-up is one thing I don't have to worry about with OUAB on the job!

I had my trial for hair and makeup with Stacey and Moani back in May. I couldn't have been more pleased! I absolutely loved both! They both worked with me to acheve the look I wanted, and with their professional guidance, I left my trial feeling completely at ease and so happy! Throughout the whole process from booking my trial and now the final months leading up to my wedding day, Stacey has been extremely helpful to me and has always been very accessible. My experience as a whole with Once Upon A Bride is one I would definitely recommend and I can't wait for my actual wedding day!!

I was in need of a hairstylist for my wedding and I was refered to Once Upon a Bride from one of my co-workers. I looked them up on line and contacted them immediatley. I heard back from Stacey herself (owner) that day! She was super helpful on helping me decide what type of stylist I would need based upon what I wanted done to my hair. She explained their pricing system which is completely resonable and I went in for a trial.

I couldn't have been matched with a better stylist than the one I had. Her name was Stefanie and she was amazing. I showed her one picture and she was able to create my vision on the very first try! Plus which was more important to me, her personality was amazing! We hit it off immediatly.

Day of, she was amazing. She made my mother and mother in law look beautiful and she transformed me in to the princess that I always dreamed about. Stacey was amazing on coordinating all of the logistics for my day. Stefanie arrived on time and stayed right until I walked down the aisle. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Stacey did not disappoint us. Once Upon a Bride is a wonderful salon that caters to the needs of a bride. My daughter got married in May and Stacey tried out numerous hair styles until my daughter choose the perfect one. Stacey is very professional and takes much pride in her work. My daughter's two matron of honors plus a bridesmaid were thrilled with their hair styles - as were my sister and myself. And most important my daughter loved how she looked. KUDOS to Stacey for a job well done.

I have used Once Upon a Bride twice in the past 5 years -- the first time was for my own wedding and the second time was earlier this month for another wedding I was in. Stacey, the owner, did my hair for my wedding and I LOVED it. She is very pleasant to work with and transformed me on my wedding day into exactly what I wanted to look like. This time around, we used Sofia and Angela for hair and make up. They were both amazing. They had great ideas for those who didn't know what they wanted and were happy to do exactly what was asked for those who did know what they wanted. They arrived on time and were able to get everyone looking beautiful in the allotted time without stress or worry.

I would definitely recommend Once Upon a Bride to anyone who wants to make sure they look wonderful for a big event. I had no reservations about putting myself in their hands -- I knew they would do a good job. Stacey hires only the best and is herself, the supreme best.

In terms of cost, OUAB is comparable and sometimes lower than other hair/makeup salons. OUAB has different levels of expertise, so there is something for everyone's budget. Take it from someone who has had a lot of experience with hair and make up in NYC, OUAB is wonderful and should be at the top of everyone's list.

I had gone to 3 horrible, horrible hair trials (that cost a fortune) before I went to Once Upon a Bride. I could do my hair better than these other 3 stylists did, so I thought I was never going to find someone to do my hair for the wedding.

Then luckily I heard about Once Upon a Bride. Stacey gave me the exact look I wanted. I didn't even think my hair could look as good as it did when she was done with it. It exceeded my expectations for what I wanted to look like on my wedding day. I was smiling for the rest of the day because I was so happy with how my hair looked. I am so excited to have Stacey do my hair on my wedding. I can't wait to see how it turns out! I'm just mad that I wasted all of that money/time on the other hair trials before going to OUAB. Also, the whole experience at OUAB was much more professional than any other trial I went to.

My makeup trial from OUAB was really good too, but I mainly was so relieved/impressed with my hair trial that I needed to write this review.

Just save yourself time and money and go here first. I really wish I would have.

I had 15 people that needed hair and make-up on my wedding day and I was so concerned about how everyone was going to get done in time for pictures. Once Upon a Bride made it such an enjoyable experience. Everything was flawless, from everyone's hair, make-up and timing, things really could not have gone any more perfect. It was just all around such a great experience working with Stacey, Stephanie, Janet and their team!! I wish Stephanie and Janet could do my hair and make-up everyday!

My wedding day isn't here yet but after just having a trial with Stacey and color treatment with Loren I am SUPER excited and know I am in great hands. Stacey is a miracle worker, she was totally honest with me about what would look best and on her first try I looked exactly how I envisioned I would. Loren made my hair super shiny and gorgeous and I will continue to go back to Loft 26 (sister salon) up until and way beyond my wedding day! Thanks gals at OUAB ;)

OUAB was amazing - they did hair and make-up for me, my bridesmaids and the mothers, and everyone loved their looks! We had Alesha and Stephanie for hair and Janet and Sofia for make-up - the timing was perfect and they were so fun to be around. I loved my hair and make-up and I'm SO happy I went with OUAB for my wedding day. I highly recommend OUAB, Stacey is personable, professional and very organized, and you will be in great hands!

Stacey (owner) is fabulous to work with -- incredibly organized and very personable. Stephanie styled my hair and Sofia applied my makeup. Between their personalities and their incredible talent, I was completely swept away and was 100% at ease. Stephanie nailed the romantic waves I so desperately desired, and Sofia made me look like the best version of myself. I cannot wait for my wedding day!

Update: Wedding day hair/make up = INCREDIBLE! I have never felt so beautiful -- Thank you OUAB!!!!!!!! Stephanie and Sofia are the best!!

After a quick phone conversation I knew Dana was the perfect makeup artist for DD's wedding. We did one trial and that sealed it. Dana did the make-up for my daughter's wedding and she made this 57 year old MOB look beyond good- and I never think I look good! Not even my husband could tell I had on lashes - they looked so natural. My beautiful DD hates make up and Dana made her feel so comfortable that she even let Dana put lashes on her- they were individual and natural looking. We looked like ourselves but even better versions! The make-up lasted all night long and never faded, never felt yucky - even at 3AM - yes we did party that late and even later! Every photo is fabulous because we look so good - Dana was even able to cover my dark circles! ABSOLUTELY worth every penny and more!

Stacey did my hair and Dana did my makeup perfectly. I explained what I wanted over the phone and Stacey knew exactly how to execute the look perfectly. My hair and face has never looked better. I am thrilled I loved the way I looked on my wedding day.

My mother, my sister and I all looked and felt amazing. Both Alesha and Sofia were very professional and made getting ready on the wedding day seamless and stress free.

Also, prior to the wedding I got my pre-wedding hair cut and color by Stacey and Loren and they did an amazing job as well.

I couldn't have been happier with the way everything turned out. Make room in your budget for them, they are worth every penny!

Let??s face it ladies, a bride??s top priority is to look beautiful on her wedding day. I searched high and low for the perfect hair and makeup people, and Once Upon a Bride is exactly what I was looking for.

For my wedding I wanted to look like myself, only better. So often I have seen brides whose hair looked like a stiff sculpture and whose makeup made them unrecognizable. I have had bad experiences with hair and makeup in the past, so I thought that finding the right people for my wedding would be time consuming and require multiple trials.

When I called and spoke to Stacey at OUAB she made the time to have a long conversation about my wedding and the look I desired, then matched me with the people that best fit my expectations. I just had my trial, and I can happily say that Stacey matched me PERFECTLY to a makeup artist and hair stylist that gave me the results I hoped for.

Honestly, I couldn't believe how easy it was! I showed Sofia and Alicia pictures of the look I was going for, and they did it EXACTLY!! I felt like they really transformed me into best version of myself. Even my mom loved the results!

Going for the trial erased all my worries. Now I can focus on the million other things I have to do!

ok so i was having a complete and total hair crisis for my wedding. I had a few trials and had actually booked someone to do my hair the day of my wedding. two months before my wedding, he cancels! as you might have guessed, i freaked out. i went on, literally, no exaggeration, TWELVE hair trials - i was desperate. i was losing sleep over this - two months before my wedding and no hair stylist. i had this idea of how i wanted my hair to be the day i got married and no one could "get it". finally, i was referred to Once Upon a Bride. i emailed Stacey, the owner, and she was awesome. i told her what i needed, and she immediately set me up with someone for a hair trial. Stacey was a HUGE help and made me feel comfortable right away. i talked to her AT LENGTH about what i wanted my hair to look like and she set me up with Birgetta. Stacey herself spent time with me, discussing what i wanted my hair to look like. she was incredible. then i met with Birgetta. let me tell you, she is UNBELIEVABLE. i cannot even begin to tell you what an incredible hair stylist she is. she sat there and listened to me. she was the first stylist who actually listened to what i wanted and thought about how she could make my dream become a reality. i brought her pictures of what i thought i wanted, but no picture existed of what i truly wanted my hair to look like. i tried to explain to Birgetta this idea that i had in my head and she immediately understood EXACTLY what i wanted. she spent HOURS with me prepping and styling my hair. the final product was just amazing. i have long, VERY thin hair and she made me look like i had the thickest hair ever! i could never have dreamed that my hair would look this amazing. she captured EXACTLY what i wanted. when my mother saw my hair, she cried! she had been through all of my previous bad hair trials and she literally thanked God that we found Birgetta! i cannot stress enough how picky i was about what i wanted for my wedding hair - i had seen TWELVE different stylists and NO ONE could even come close to what i wanted. Birgetta went far beyond anything i could have ever thought was possible. i HIGHLY recommend Once Upon a Bride. it literally saved my sanity before my wedding! Stacey is so nice and so helpful and Birgetta is absolutely amazing.

Before you waste several hundred dollars and time on hair trials in search of "the one" for your big day, go to OUAB! I had tried a couple of different hair stylists in Manhattan and just didn't think I was going to look the way I wanted to on my wedding day. That all changed after I came across OUAB. I called Stacey (the owner) who listened to the 'look' I was going for, and based on our discussion, suggested her stylist, Stephanie. At my trial, I showed her a few pictures, and she tried 3 different looks. She really understood the texture, volume, and overall look I wanted, and also knew what would look good with my face. As a side note, but I realize it's probably just as important-- she is really friendly and upbeat, which I can imagine is important on your wedding day! As far as price: their bridal styling isn't the cheapest out there (or even the most expensive for that matter), but if her other stylists are as talented, I do believe they offer the best value for the level of work they do.

*** UPDATE :-) ***
Stephanie did my hair, as well as that of my 5 bridesmaids, and everyone looked great! As I mentioned above, she totally understood the look I was going for and made it happen, and it lasted all night! My bridesmaids felt and looked beautiful too, which made for great pictures! She is also really fun and friendly, and has the kind of positive energy you want surrounding you during your pre-wedding beautifying session. Highly recommend Stacey's team.

I had read great reviews of OUAB, and it was the first and only place I went for hair and makeup trials. I was thrilled with the results and booked Stacey and Sofia for my May wedding. Stacey and Sofia are amazing pros and genuinely care about their brides. For my makeup, I wanted a natural glamour look and Sofia achieved it. She made my skin glow! My makeup look was pretty and fresh. Each step, Sofia explained how she was using products and answered all of my questions. For my hair, I wanted a young and modern hairstyle. Stacey created a beautiful half-up/half-down look with romantic waves for me. I felt so gorgeous! Stacey and Sofia have been so supportive and in touch via email during these months leading up to the wedding. I'm so excited for my hair and makeup on the big day!

I had a wonderful experience at OUAB during my hair and make-up trials with Ingaborg and Stefanie! I went in with a few ideas but both of them took what I had in mind to the next level. Ingaborg has an extremely delicate touch and the make-up look that she created was just perfect for the romantic, classic aesthetic that I want to achieve. She also took the time to explain the process to me as well as the products that she was using. And I had already had a few hair trials before I met Stefanie, but her work just blew me away. I wanted something back, low, textured and she was able to create a style that was that and then some--and without using a hundred bobby pins or rubber bands, which was amazing! But to me, what was also great about Stefanie and Ingaborg is that besides being wonderful artists, they were extremely positive and just fun to be around.

I had wonderful experience at Once Upon a Bride. After a horrible makeup trial I had lost hope and had almost decided on doing the makeup myself. That was until I found OUAB. From the moment I walked in I knew I was in the right place. Stacey and Sofia are simply amazing.
Sofia is so talented and achieved the look I wanted in no time. She took the time to listen to what I wanted and is completely aware of new trends and updated looks. My mom also came along, not for a trial but just for a second opinion, and Sofia created a look for my mom as well. My mom was so happy! Sofia loves what she does and it is apparent. She is a wonderful person to work with and I could not recommend her more.

Stacey did a fantastic job with my hair. I wasn't too sure what I wanted, but just like with Sofia in no time I had a look that I loved. They really know what they are doing at OUAB. I strongly recommend both their bridal hair and makeup services.

After a highly recommended hair and makeup trial elsewhere left me with much to be desired...I did some research on my own and found Once Upon a Bride.
I talked to Stacey, who spend time getting to know me and my style and made suggestions on which of her hair and makeup artists would be best.
I had a trial with Aleasha and Sophia..Sophia got my vision for makeup SPOT ON! I loved it so much I didn't wash my face that night and kept it on for the next day--and it lasted!!!
Aleasha tried several different looks on me and we found the perfect style for my wedding! I left SOO excited.
I have booked them for my April wedding and am now crossing my fingers that everything comes out just as perfect on my wedding day:)

I had a hair trial in Connecticut (where the wedding will be) but ended up looking like a french poodle!! I found Once Upon a Bride online and decided to come in for a trial. Stefanie could not have been more wonderful. I showed her a few pictures and she immediately knew the look I was after. She was fun and super nice and my hair has never looked so great. I couldn't recommend her more highly!

so- once upon a bride- the name totally freaked me out- but these girls mean business. really forget about being treated like a princess or going to some cache salon - stacey and dana know what the deal is and they do the job right. my makeup was flawless, had me smiling ear to ear all day long. my hair completely stood in place without looking like prom 1989. Its a bit pricey so be prepared~ it's well worth it. they are the best for a reason and they work quick. i am really picky and tried a million places for trial (both makeup and hair) . what a waste of time...trust- just go straight to the source- they will do the job right and you can totally count on them, they are total professionals. best thing that i did was have my make up and hair done for my wedding....definitely a must.

I had an incredible experience last night at Once Upon a Bride. Stacey, the owner made me feel special from the moment I walked in the door. I immediately was comfortable and felt I was working with an old friend. She tried 3 beautiful hairstyles on me for my wedding day and I trust her so much I decided to wait until the actual day to decide. My makeup was the best it has ever looked. I practically danced around her salon because I felt so pretty!. It was a great feeling to know I will be in such good hands on my wedding day. I wholeheartedly recommend Stacey and her staff for anything to do with hair and makeup. I live in Florida and will certainly be coming back to NY for years to come to have my hair done by her team!

Stacey and the whole OUAB team are just amazing. the minute i walked in the salon, they made me feel very special and welcomed. to be honest, i had a first trial with someone recommended by a friend of mine and was not happy. so after my first trial...i panicked and started looking online. once i booked a trial with Dana and Stacey, i felt in my gut that this is it...and i was right!!! in fact, i cancelled a trial with another bridal salon just so i can meet up with Stacey and Dana first. the whole makeup trial experience was awesome. Dana listened to my concerns--what i like and don't like. my makeup was sooo natural that it felt like i wasn't wearing any. i can't stop looking at the mirror after the trial. as for the hair, Stacey is sooo talented!!! very sweet and she'll really work with you. it was such an amazing experience that for the first time, i felt truly like a bride after the trial with Stacey. she was very patient with me and she tried different styles and looks so we can both find the BEST one for me. all of them are VERY FRIENDLY and THEY ACTUALLY LISTEN!!! i could not wait 'til my wedding day to see my overall look. i am very confident that Stacey and Dana will be able to give me the perfect look for my wedding. I HIGHLY recommend them...not just to other brides but also to those who are searching for a nice, cozy, and trendy salon. after the wedding, i'll definitely go back to Stacey for a haircut:)

Stacey and her team at Once Upon A Bride are amazing! They went above and beyond for me. I was a last minute bride and they worked to squeeze me in during such a busy time. Can not thank them enough!From the second I walked in for my trial, they made me feel so relaxed and were so much fun! I didn't really have ideas for hair and makeup and after they sat with me and looked at pictures of my dress, they came up with the most beautiful ideas. I never felt more beautiful in my life!!! I was in shock! It was so natural...but stunning and elegant at the same time! Now I can not wait for my actual wedding day- these girls are so fun to hang out with and you get to leave looking gorgeous! It doesn't get better than that! I am making an appt with Stacey to cut my hair at her salon also. I would recommend OUAB to everyone. I have never looked so amazing!!!!!

Everyone always says that planning a wedding is so much fun. Well, from what I have experienced, it is and it isn't and it often involves a bit of compromise and give and take. Going to Once Upon A Bride, however, was maybe, the most fun part so far. From the moment you walk in Stacey and her team make you feel incredibly welcome. Before meeting with them, I had never had my hair or makeup done professionally and I have to say that I looked forward to going there for weeks. Once Upon A Bride exceeded my expectations! Both my hair and makeup looked beautiful and on top of that, Stacey and her team were just really fun to hang out with. The atmosphere was very casual and comfortable and it felt like I was hanging out with friends. I wasn't sure exactly what kind of look I wanted and they were all very patient and helpful in making recommendations, but also reminding me that what I thought was the most important. I can't say enough about them and I would recommend them to any bride!!

I wasn't sure exactly what kind of look I wanted and they were all very patient and helpful in making recommendations, but also reminding me that what I thought was the most important. I can't say enough about them and I would recommend them to any bride!!

.

Aside from the fact that Stacey is beautiful and cool, she and her stylists do the best hair ever! I did not originally chose Once Upon A Bride, and boy did I regret it. My first trial was a disaster, but as soon as I contacted Stacey, I felt immediately reassured. She was detail oriented and organized, which is very important when you are planning a wedding and have so many things to do.
Most importantly, my hair on my wedding day was so beautiful. I absolutely loved it, and I got so many compliments. It suited my face, it was original and creative and Stacey worked with me to make sure it was exactly what I wanted and also that it was PERFECT. I could not have been happier and I could not speak any higher about Once Upon A Bride. They were perfection.

I just went to Once Upon A Bride for my make up trial for my wedding and I loved everything about the service, ambiance, staff, and of course, my makeup! Stacey Lyn and her team know how to make you feel calm and relaxed even though you are planning one of the most important events of your life. When I met Desiree, my makeup artist, I instantly knew she would do a great job. I wasn't exactly sure how I wanted to do my makeup, so Desiree worked with me to create the perfect look. She took everything into account: my dress, my hair, the time of the wedding...I could go on and on. She really took the time to get to know me. She was amazing! When she was finished, I was so excited to finally see what she had done and I loved it! I cannot wait for my wedding day. I know I will look and feel great thanks to everyone at Once Upon a Bride.

Once Upon a Bride was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding. Stacey Lyn came highly recommended by a friend of mine and as soon as I met her I felt comfortable and at ease. I had a very specific idea in mind of how I wanted to look on my wedding day and Stacey "got it." She worked with me to create the perfect hair style that I completely loved. I even found a beautiful hair piece from her extensive and beautiful collection. I also worked with OUAB (Desiree) for my makeup, which was flawless and fabulous. Stacey and Desiree made my wedding trial and my wedding day relaxed and fun - just like hanging out with two of my friends. My makeup and hair stayed set for almost 10 hours even though I did pictures outside in the sun and then danced the night away. It was the perfect experience and I am so glad I worked with them. I would highly recommend them to any bride-to-be!

OUAB did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. I do not usually wear make up so finding someone who would make me look special but not over done and un-recognizable was very important. Stacey was patient through the planning process and helped me find a makeup artist that I was comfortable with and RoAnna was it. During the trial she listened to my concerns, likes and dislikes and offered suggestions. She put together exactly what I was looking for and I was thrilled with the end result. My make up was flawless but natural and with little direction Stacey created a romantic look for my hair that outshined anything I could have imagined. I truly felt like a princess. My bridesmaids and my mom looked beautiful! Even my bridesmaids who originally did not want their hair or makeup done asked to be squeezed in at the last minute after seeing how amazing everyone else looked. Most importantly everyone's makeup and hair remained perfect through all the rain, laughter, tears and dancing! I could not have been happier with the job they did and would not have trusted anyone else to do my hair and makeup on that day.

I am from San Francisco and was planning my wedding in NYC this June. I had multiple disastrous hair trials with stylist who claimed they could work with curly hair, but either ended up straightening my curls or making me look like I was going to prom. One day I stumbled upon Once Upon a Bride on line and called the owner Stacey to discuss my needs. She spent time discussing her various stylists and price ranges and worked with me in finding the best fit possible. Stacey even opened up the store on her day off so that I could come in to discuss style options, since I did not have enough time before the wedding for a full trial. She was also the one to do my hair on the wedding day and it turned out beautiful! Her make up artist was very talented as well. She did individual lashes that looked very natural and my make up looked amazing in pictures and even after a few tears. The cost of services was definitely above my original budget but it was worth every penny!

I just got back from my honeymoon and had to say you guys nailed it! I wasn't sure which hair style to go with so they took pictures of each "creation" so I could go home and think about it. After choosing my "look", I had the pictures to show Stacey which style I wanted. They made me look and feel like the most beautiful bride in the world. The day of the wedding was chaotic. Since my Once Upon A Bride team has been here before, they were very calming. Looking back at there confidence, it gave me the strength to hold it together (I should have hired them as a consultant since they knew who should be doing what and when from the flowers to the caterer).
You guys are the best and I am telling everyone about you...

Pros: Professional

The trial was a waste of money. I did not get the my first choice for the makeup artist, but got a distant second. The staff had too much attitue and not enough charm. I was happy with my hair but disappointed with my makeup. Tthe makeup woman rushed my makeup towards the end because she didn't leave herself enough time to finish as planned. She rushed though my airbrush makeup, which got shiny and required touch up through the night, which left me wondering what was so great about airbrush? The touch up left me with little to no blush left on my face, so I looked washed out in photos. The white powder she used on me looked like I have baby powder all over my face under the flash.

I kick myself, really do, on why I didn't do my own makeup because I couldn've done a much better job. Anyway the hair and makeup people showed up at my hotel room and demanded coffee and hinted for champagne. Sorry but no one brings me coffee or champagne at my job. As the hotel room is on a high floor, basically they were demanding room service to quench their thirst.

I don't care if any other client pampered them, but true professionals should show up and finish on time, and be courteous and deliver what they were paid for, especially they were paid a lot of money, cash to be specific. THis place is too much hype, don't let the website fool you. I sort of regret using them but you can't change a done deal.

Once Upon A Bride was recommended by a wedding planner and I would not recommend them. I wanted to try several different looks for hair and makeup and when I couldn't really decide on which look I wanted to go with, they got annoyed with me. I hated the hair, hated the makeup and just didn't care for they way I was treated at all. Never again. Maybe you'd have better luck than me, but I doubt it.

i was SO tense and worried about my hair and makeup
for my wedding bc I've seen so many brides with stiff
hair and heavy makeup, but I went to OUAB for a hair
trial and felt completely relieved once David did my
hair! He is extremely talented and I felt completely
at ease once I saw what he could do and realized his
style was in line with what I had envisioned. He is very
detailed and he strategically places each strand of
hair so that it looks very natural yet glamorous and
refined. He had great suggestions and he guided me
through my confusion on which hairstyle would be best
for me. He was really successful in translating the
magazine photos of what I wanted into what would work
best for my hair texture. I still don't have my dress
but since I have complete confidence in his sense of
style, I know that he will make things work on the day
of my wedding. I'm VERY VERY VERY picky and he was
exactly what I was looking for. Stacey was great too!
She got a feel for what I wanted and helped me
communicate what I was envisioning throughout the session!

Ok Brides, you need to call Once Upon A Bride for your hair and make-up appt's for your wedding!! You will not be sorry!

I just got married and Once Upon A Bride turned it out - my hair was absolutely gorgeous and my make-up was stunning - pretty and natural with a little extra something special. I even purchased a beautiful shimmery hair comb at Violet. Once Miss Stacey placed it in my hair, I knew this is what I wanted. The hair comb finished it off perfectly, like hair jewelery. I can't tell you how excited, confident and beautiful I felt on my special day - thanks to Once Upon A Bride for truly making my wedding special...modern, classy and FUN!

What a group of talented makeup and hair artists! The OUAB team did a wonderful job with my hair and makeup for my wedding - I never thought I could look so beautiful! So many people raved about my makeup and hair and said I looked stunning! Louis did an amazing job with my makeup - natural and flawless, it's just absolutely beautiful. Stacey and Jacqualine did magic to my hair - not only did it look great, it stayed in place all night even though I was running around and dancing like crazy!!! Oh I also got an eyelash extension done by Desiree a week before the wedding - it was great and so natural looking. Everything was absolutely perfect!

OUAB was one of the best vendors I dealt with for the wedding. Stacey was professional, responsive, helpful, and most importantly, soooo sweet. In addition to answering all my questions and concerns before my wedding, she even followed up with me after the wedding to make sure everything was ok! OUAB definitely has impeccable service!!!

Ladies, I highly recommend OUAB if you need professional hair and makeup done!!!

I love Once Upon a Bride! I just got married on September 9th and I used Once Upon a Bride for my hair and makeup. Stacey and Dana were AMAZING! THey both had great ideas for different looks i could have on my special day. We did a trial and I was ecstatic with the results. I have pin-straight hair that doesn't hold a curl for anything, so you can imagine how nervous i was. Before the wedding day, I emailed Stacey about a million times about my concerns and she was patient and responsive and very professional. On the wedding day, they both worked around my crazy schedule and the end result was nothing less than stunning. I received so many compliments on my hair and make-up, i must have said "once upon a bride" about a million times.

I can't stress how wonderful i think the stylists/artists at Once Upon a Bride are. I even go to Stacey for regular haircuts - i switched from a high priced 57th street salon!!! I also get my eyebrows done by Desiree, another great artist there. I highly recommend Once Upon a Bride to any bride who wants to look beautiful on her special day and does not want to be stressed out about it. I also recommend the salon to anyone looking for a stylist who is up-to-date with the latest styles and wants a fun environment to visit.

Trust me ladies, I went to 2 other hairstylists (at very upscale salons) before my wedding and nobody got it. My wedding planner referred me to Stacey and her crew at Once Upon a Bride. The total experience, from my first trial, was nothing short of perfect. At long last, somebody understood that this was my WEDDING and not a runway show with retro 1960's mod hair! The job that Stacey and Josie and Alicia did was beyond beautiful....the salon at Violet is a wonderful space, very intimate, good music, great vibe. The girls make you feel and look special. I have continued to go to Stacey to get my hair cut, now after the wedding because Violet is also a full-scale salon for hair, color, and eyebrows. Once Upon a Bride is the only place I would recommend to a friend getting married for hair and makeup.
