Amanda and her team were professional and talented. During our intial interactions Amanda was very clear about the terms and procedures under which she works, her rates for trials, traveling to venus out of the city etc. I found this all very helpful. She was easy to get a hold of on either her cell or email which is a relief to a bride who has many questions. She answered all of my questions in a timley and professional manner. Once I sent my contract into her with the deposit I knew that we were booked. Reminder to all brides shopping vendors out there, if you don't mail in your deposit and contract, then call to make sure that made it there, you can't bank on being booked. I also say keep touch with your vendors. Don't wait until the day before your wedding to make sure things are set. I loved how Amanda listened to my thoughts and ideas and incorperated them into my look. She has a great creative eye and was both honest and considerate through the entire process. I felt taken care of so I did not have to worry about hair of make up after booking her. She did an amazing job with all my girls hair and her assistant did a great job with the make up. They kept the energy light and fun. I felt beautiful. I have Amanda and her team to thank for that. The hair and make up came out so well that many guests and brides-to-be asked me who it was who did the hair and make up and later ended up contacing Amanda to do thier weddings.

hair & make up trial run

When it came time to look for a hair and make up artist for my wedding this coming May 2011, I looked no further than Amanda Shackleton Bridal Beauty. She came highly recommended, and I can see why. From the moment I entered her bright, spacious loft in Brooklyn ( with easy parking!!) she made me feel comfortable. I showed her a few examples of hairstyles I liked, and she was able to incorporate them into the reality that is my hair. I loved what she did with my make up, but again, I knew choosing a make up artist that teaches and is sought after for celebrities, I could not go wrong. I am so excited about my wedding- not only am I marrying an amazing man, but I am going to look gorgeous doing it, thanks to Amanda!

Perfect hair and makeup

Amanda did hair and makeup for my big day this past February. She was wonderful. I was very happy with her trial before my wedding, and much to my suprise, I loved her work even more on the day of my wedding. After the trial, I provided my contract with deposit and was good to go. Unlike many other stylists, she was willing to alter the styles to my preferences. I could not have been happier with her or her services. On the wedding day, she was pleasant and got the job done and was also very calming to a nervous bride. Both my sister and I received hair and makeup services. Not only did we receive many compliments on the wedding day, but I was even more impressed when I received my photos back. I am delighted that Amanda was able to do my Valentine's wedding and that she made me feel like I looked my most beautiful on one of the most special days of my life --- I could not have asked for more.

One of the best decisions I made for my daughter's wedding (8/21/2010) was hiring Amanda Shackleton....she and her assistant were extremely professional, responsible and courteous. They helped to make the afternoon so enjoyable and memorable. The wedding party consisted of women with a variety of hair types, lengths and styles....everyone was so pleased with the outcome. My daughter looked amazing and so many people commented, at the wedding, at how beautiful her hair and makeup looked...very natural...nothing overdone. I recommend Amanda to anyone who wants a flawless look for their special day...she delivered everything she promised and more.

Perfect hair & makeup

I'm so totally pleased with Amanda's work for my wedding this past weekend. She did the hair and makeup of my maid of honor and myself and everyone was raving about how well it came out. I had shown her a picture of the hair style I wanted during my trial and she nailed it on the first try. Her makeup styling was dramatic but capitalized on our best features and we still looked like ourselves. Amanda was professional, on time, and really heard what we were looking for and rolled with it, adding in her own expertise. I would highly recommend Amanda for any bride and her entourage.
