Very professional Booking
After looking at some of their work (hair and makeup) I knew I had to go with Taffeta Design for myself and my girls. I cant wait to do my trial!

Hair and Makeup Perfection
Taffeta is the BEST! The girls are sooo nice, down to earth, and understand exactly what you want with just a picture or a few words. I was extremely confident in their work and knew that myself and all my girls would look AMAZING on my wedding day. Everyone loved their makeup. They did a great job giving that soft glam without feeling like you were wearing a ton of makeup. Everyone's curls and hairstyles stayed in all day and I was obsessed with my braid and curls for my wedding day hair. They made everyone feel so comfortable and look their absolute best. I would definitely use Taffeta again for future special occasion events!

Booking them is a must!
One of the best vendor investments from the budget. The team handles hair and makeup. They are so talented and everyones makeup looked natural and hair looked incredible. They were so nice and wonderful to work with.

Alex and her team are AMAZING. As an out of state bride, I relied on recommendations and after talking with different salons and following instagram posts, I knew Taffeta offered the talent, flexibility, and personality of artists I wanted around me for my big day. Throughout the process, Gina and Alex listened to my concerns and altered schedules and timing, added more artists to the team, with no problem or questions. After not loving the hair style I chose at my preview after looking back at pictures, Alex made me feel confident, personally calling and talking with me, that my hair would be exactly how I wanted it for my wedding day. My team, Alex, Lauren, Jess and Betsy were so positive and cheery the morning of my wedding, even though it was a 7:30am start. They made all of my girls and moms look and feel beautiful. No matter the artist, everybody was so happy with their look. Not having to commit to a large amount of girls for hair and makeup early on with Taffeta relieved a lot of stress for me and Taffeta was happy to accommodate the 9 hair and makeups we ended up booking! It is super important to pick a team that has the experience and honesty with scheduling to ensure that everyone is ready on time without feeling rushed. Taffeta offers that. Do not hesitate to book Alex and her team.

Taffeta to the Rescue!
Alex and Lauren at Taffeta truly saved the day! I live in Pennsylvania and was married at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ. I had two disastrous trials locally before reaching to Taffeta, who I found on Congress Hall's preferred vendor list, in a panic months before our wedding. They responded immediately and executed my vision flawlessly. Their studio is quaint and charming and their trial hours are very flexible. They welcome feedback and are open to adjustments. I was very impressed by the formality of their contracts, payment process and online portal. We were assigned an appropriate amount of stylists per services requested and the timing the morning of our wedding was flawless. I couldn’t have been happier with my experience and would highly recommend Taffeta!

Alex was phenomenal and made my mom, sister and me feel glamourous. I had a hair trial with a hairstyle I thought I loved, and Alex did a lovely job - but after thinking about it for a few days I decided it wasn't for me; so on my wedding day we decided to completely switch up the look. I was really nervous, but Alex was AMAZING! She did exactly what I asked for, without a "trial". My mom and sister were so happy with their up-dos. She is incredibly fast and efficient, and produces beautiful work. Thank you Alex for making us feel beautiful! I will send pictures as soon as I get them =)

I could not thank Taffeta Hair & Makeup enough for making my wedding day extra special! Alex and Lauren did the hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and I, and everyone looked and felt amazing! Alex and Lauren are both so talented, professional, and helpful, I would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you both so much for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day!

Recommend - Especially Courtney!
I used Taffeta for hair only and we loved our experience! Courtney was so sweet and fun during the trial and on the day of the wedding. She was very easy-going and didn't mind when a few of us had her make changes/fixes. She was very professional and we loved her work! Definitely recommend Taffeta and Courtney

Booking Taffeta Design was probably one of the easiest decisions i made in my planning process! I was referred to Alex by one of my bridesmaids (they went to school together). She was so nice on the phone and walked me through the whole process. The prices were comparable with other local salons - except they would do our hair and makeup in my house - which was honestly the most important part. A few months out I had my trials in my make up artist's home. I showed both girls a couple pictures and they knew exactly what to do! The night before my wedding, I got an email from Gina, telling me that my make up artist had the stomach bug. No bride wants to read that the night before the big day! But within the same email she told me that they were sending another girl - Lyndsay - who was even better! She got there early and everyone's makeup was FLAWLESS! She was even able to help cover up some surgical scars for one of my bridesmaids. Katy, our hair stylists, was PERFECT. My mom didnt know exactly what she wanted, and Katy kept making adjustments throughout the morning. Both girls were a great fit with all of us - we had a blast talking with them while we got ready. I didnt want to put my veil on until i was in my dress. Katy stayed an extra 30 minutes to wait for me to be ready. She definitely didnt have to do that, but it was so appreciated! I can't imagine having anyone do our hair and makeup.... I would definitely recommend booking Taffeta for anyone's wedding!

The Taffeta wedding girls are amazing! I cannot say enough.. From beginning to end my wedding day went perfect! Working w/Alex the owner who is so sweet & accomadating to Deneen who did our hair & kat who did out make up.. It was such an easy relaxed morning. I truly wish I could do it all over again! Do not search for any other bridal team for Yur hair & make up! Tafetta is it!

I used Taffeta for my wedding on 9/17 and was so happy with the services they provided! Alex and Lauren were wonderful to work with and were able to create any style my bridesmaids and I asked for. All of our hair and make up stayed the entire day. Very impressed with this company!

Taffeta Design made myself and my bridal party look gorgeous! From the very beginning they were very easy to get a hold of, answered every email promptly, and the hair dressers/makeup artists arrived right on time and worked professionally. I would would suggest Taffeta

Alex and Lauren were amazing! I couldn't of picked a better glam team for my wedding. When I when to Alex's for my trial, they were extremely professional and listened to exactly what I wanted. When I looked in the mirror I was blown away. The day of my wedding went so smoothly. They were such a joy to share my wedding morning with. I wish I could have them do my hair and makeup everyday. My makeup lasted all day and night long and my hair didn't budge once. My bridesmaids absolutely loved their work as well. My sister-in-law already booked Alex and Lauren for her future wedding. LOVE LOVE LOVE! They are truly amazing!

I cannot thank Taffeta Design enough for all they have done for me, the bridesmaids, and the MOB/MOG. Alex and Lauren did my hair and makeup for our engagement pictures and I was so happy with how it turned out. They made me feel so beautiful and I love my pictures because of how amazing they made me look! Alex, the owner, and Gina, the communications specialist, were both so easy to reach and talk to throughout the entire planning process. They helped accommodate a time/location for the hair and makeup trial around my busy schedule and being out-of-state as well as Alex and Lauren's busy schedules with work and children. I had so much fun on the night of my trial. Alex helped me find the perfect jewelry for my bridesmaids and the hairpiece for my wedding day hair. She has stunning taste in wedding jewelry and hairpieces! The day of the wedding, Alex and Lauren were so amazing to work with! They made everyone feel beautiful and everyone was so happy with how their hair and makeup turned out. My hair and makeup came out even better than the trial! I felt absolutely gorgeous. I never thought I could feel so beautiful then I did that day. Thank you Taffeta for everything! I can't wait to get more pictures back from our photographers to share with your team.

Amazing! Taffeta Hair and Makeup was absolutely incredible! After having a trial at the home of Taffeta's founder, I felt completely comfortable and at ease with with Alex and Geno. Alex did my hair while Geno worked on makeup. My mother and sister came with me to Alex's home for the trial and we were greeted into her home with home arms and absolute joy! Alex was amazing to work with and made you feel immediately at ease, as if you had known her for years. After completing my hair and makeup trial, I was so excited for my wedding day, not only because I was confident in the job they did on me but because my mom, my sister and my bridesmaids would be able to experience the same pampering too! On the day of the wedding, Alex did our hair and Geno did our makeup. All morning we laughed, listened to music and chatted with one another while ooohhh-ing and awwww-ing as my sister, cousin, mom and in-laws got their hair and makeup done. It was such an awesome experience for us all. From the bottom of my heart, I thank Alex and Geno from Taffeta Hair and Makeup for truly being the best at their job and all around wonderful people! I felt extra beautiful on my wedding day because of you two! Thank You!

I could not be happier with Taffeta! Alex and Gino were simply amazing. They were friendly, funny, and attentive to all of my bridal parties needs. Alex did an exceptional job on our hair. Not only did everyone look beautiful they were also happy because Alex was able to recreate exactly what the girls were looking for! Gino did an excellent job on makeup and had us laughing the whole time. Guest at the wedding would not stop complementing everyone on their hair and make up. I would definitely recommend Taffeta!

I absolutely loved working with Alex and Lauren on my wedding day! Both girls are extremely friendly and amazingly talented. Every single one of my bridesmaids look gorgeous. Hair was perfect, and makeup was flawless. I felt like a princess. I never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. Alex was so friendly and a pleasure to work with through the whole planning process. She made it easy and fun for me in the days approaching my wedding. Not to mention she also created a stunning custom headband for me to wear. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing hair and makeup services for a special occasion!

I cannot recommend this company enough! They are fabulous! After having a trial with another hair stylist, I was unhappy - I contacted Alex, and I immediately felt confident that Taffeta Hair and Makeup Design was the perfect match for me. I had Lauren do my makeup and Marissa did my hair. These girls are amazingly talented, and extremely friendly to work with! They completely understood the look I wanted to achieve and executed it perfectly! I felt beautiful on my wedding day… and so did my bridal party and both mothers! Alex is very organized and kept in constant contact with me to make sure my day went perfect. Stop searching and book with Taffeta for your perfect wedding day look!

Alex and her crew made my wedding day stress free as possible. They made me and my whole wedding party looked amazing. Taffeta wasn't my first choice. I know this girl that was supposed to do my hair and another girl that was going to do my make up. I had a trial with these two girls and it was horrible. I was so stressed out and that I stayed up all night looking on THEKNOT for another hair and makeup artist. Then I found Taffeta. I was very fortunate that they were not booked for any weddings on my date. So I scheduled a trial with Alex and was so pleased how beautiful I looked and how fast she did my hair. Lindsay did such a great job with my make up as well. They suggested a lot regarding what will look good and what look right on me. I chose airbrush makeup because I know it lasts longer and better for hot days. For all the brides-to-be out there, I definitely recommend an airbrush make up. My wedding was in the middle of July and my makeup stayed on all day and all night, at church, on the beach and all through the reception. Thank you to Taffeta for making myself and the wedding party looking great on my special day!

This team of people are fabulous in what they do. They are prompt, professional, and very talented. On site is the way to go. It reduced the stress level of that day by 1000X. Not cheap, but top notch! And a fun experience even for the men who stand around and compliment everyone.

Alex and Angela are truly special hair and makeup specialists! They go beyond their duty of styling; they not only listened to our possible desired look, but they also contributed with their own expertise, which is needed.
The trial and day of service for my wedding party and I was awesome; they are a true example of how these services should be conducted. I HIGHLY recommend their genuine and superb talent to anyone! I was lucky to have stumbled up on their business!

We had an absolutely amazing experience working with Alex and Lauren of Taffeta. I know Alex (the owner) from when she worked at a salon so I called her about one year before my wedding and didn't consider anyone else. They did an amazing job! My trial was so much fun. I had specific ideas for my hair, but had no idea of what to do with my makeup. Lauren did a great job putting a color palette together that looked amazing for my special day but was also "still me. " Alex and Lauren were super professional and arrived right on time on my wedding day. We had a diverse group and some extenuating circumstances on the wedding day, and Alex and Lauren were polite and fun despite everything. My MOH's grandmother was very sick on the wedding weekend and she actually had to go to the hospital after her hair and makeup were done. Lauren stayed for a few extra minutes so she could touch up the MOH's makeup when she returned. My bridesmaid had gotten married 3 weeks earlier and said that she just might like her hair and makeup better for this wedding than she did for her own. I also had family members getting their hair and makeup done who had never had such services in their life. Alex and Lauren made them feel super comfortable so everyone had fun and looked amazing. I HIGHLY recommend Taffeta. I have seen a few other companies at other weddings, and they are truly a step above the rest. It is totally worth the money, and I believe you will look and feel amazing!

I was absolutely THRILLED with the hair and make-up that Randi from Taffeta did for my wedding. She arrived at my house early and ready to go... Before 7 AM! I was a little concerned because she was responsible for the hair and make-up for both me and my bridesmaid in four hours, but it could not have gone smoother! My bridesmaid, who was slightly nervous about liking everything, showed Randi some inspiration pictures, and that's all she needed. She loved how everything turned out!
When it came time to do my hair and make-up, we looked back at my trial pictures. I thought the trials had gone really well, but asked for a little more volume, a few slight changes, etc. And WOW! She totally upped her game, and gave me exactly what I wanted and more. Besides her work, she was a fun person to have at my house while the girls were all getting ready. She was comfortable giving my friends make-up tips, posing for pictures for the photographer, and fit right in with everyone. It felt normal to have her there on the morning of my special day.
I felt so beautiful and confident my entire wedding day, and I have Randi to thank for that. Hair and make-up, one of the things that stressed me out the most, was absolutely NO stress on my wedding day.
