Notes from recent Brides!
Caroline Mallari - "I cannot express how grateful I am that I got to work with Brittany of Wild Ivory!!!! I do my make up fairly naturally, but I KNEW I needed help for lashes and photography make up. She could not have been more kind or talented! I've only seen unedited proofs and quick previews when the photographer showed me how beautiful everything turned out on the back of her camera (I literally only got married 5 days prior and I had to make sure I put in a review) and I KNOW my makeup will look amazing. I've only had my makeup done once professionally, and I can be a gabber, but she was easy to communicate with and she reciprocated my energy. She respected my timeline as well as she could, and was polite enough to explain certain instructions and processes as we went along. Thank you Brittany! You're the BEST! I know I shouldn't want to get married more than once, but the experience was so great that I hope I get the chance to use her again when I'm in Charleston."
Lindy Gilkey - "From the moment I saw pictures of Wild Ivory brides, I knew there was no other hair/makeup artist option me. I have a natural/low maintenance approach to hair and makeup in everyday life, and wanted the same for my big day. Brittany made my vision a reality for both my engagement photo shoot and wedding. Since I was planning a destination wedding, the first time that I met Brittany was during our one and only trial run just before our engagement shoot. Brittany was laid back, care free and immediately put me at ease. She also took time to answer all of my questions and talked through options with my mom as well. Her knowledge and talent was evident from that first meeting, and when seeing the finished product, I knew I had to have her for my big day. I had the utmost trust in her and that decision paid off. To say that my "day of" hair/makeup exceeded my highest hopes is an understatement. I literally have never had my hair and makeup done professionally and felt like I looked "like me" until I met Brittany. In every wedding picture, I can't get over how natural my hair and makeup look and how well it held up without being caked on. She truly struck the perfect balance. My mom and bridesmaids LOVED their looks as well. She was prompt, professional and present every step of the way. I truly loved working with her. Even better, she was a calm, sweet presence when I broke down several times towards the end. If you go with Wild Ivory, you are not only getting such a talented artist, you're getting a wonderful person. There is simply no other way to go. Book sweet Brittany TODAY!"
Mary Brown - "I chose Wild Ivory Beauty based off their promotion of "natural and simplistic" styles since I don't tend to wear a lot of makeup normally and my face is extremely sensitive. Brittany was absolutely amazing and gave me the perfect look that I had envisioned just by talking to her and showing her one picture. My wedding morning actually started out pretty bad, an accident outside the church I was to be married in caused a power outage up until 30 minutes before the ceremony. Not only did Brittany handle my constant tears (Brides are sensitive OK), she also relocated with me to a house 15 minutes away so I could get my hair and makeup done. She's very professional and if it weren't for her adding in "error time" into her schedule I would not have been able to get my hair and makeup done in time for the ceremony. Thank you so much for everything and helping me feel confident and beautiful on my special day! Will 11/10 recommend to everyone!!!"
Lauren Delahanty - "Brittany did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. She is so personable, patient and talented! I scheduled a hair and makeup trial with her for an engagement session about 7 months before my wedding. She did airbrush makeup, lashes, and 2 hairstyles. I had never had airbrush makeup but felt she kept it natural and still looking like me! Brittany is also great at responding to emails. I must have sent her 100s of inspiration photos. My hair and makeup was PERFECT for my wedding day! I felt so beautiful and my hair and makeup lasted all night. I would absolutely recommend her!!"
Valerie Simms - "Brittany was so sweet and she is seriously SO good at what she does!!! I had to make kind of a rash decision on my hair style day-of because of some major rain coming and I was so incredibly happy with how my hair turned out and I got SO many compliments!!! Also, my makeup was PERFECT! I feel like us ladies tend to say we want to look glamorous and a little bold, but also "natural"?! (seems counterproductive, right?)....well she nailed it!! Recommend x100!"
Stephanie Bower - "Everything about working with Brittany was a breeze! From first email contact to hair/makeup trial to the day of the wedding, she was helpful, kind and is SO talented. I love the way my hair and makeup turned out. It was exactly what I wanted - natural and I looked like myself - just better! Our wedding day was so calm and happy and Brittany was a big part of making that happen. Thank you, Brittany!"
Annie Adams - "So, so glad I chose Wild Ivory Beauty for my wedding! Brittany did an amazing job and was such a joy to work with. I felt and looked natural and my makeup lasted all night. My bridesmaids looked wonderful too and everyone was pleased with their look! Highly recommend using Brittany or Wild Ivory Beauty."
Caroline Sheorn - "We highly recommend Wild Ivory Beauty! Brittany and Kylie worked my wedding and both were AMAZING! I cannot say enough great things about Brittany and her team - they are fantastic, organized and very very talented. THANK YOU, BRITTANY!"
Kailee Smith - "Book with Wild Ivory and ask for Danna. I truly believe I got the best bridal hair/ makeup artist in Charleston. My hair looked amazing at my trial, but somehow it looked even BETTER for my wedding day. I wanted a few changes to my makeup after the trial and Danna was totally flexible and intuitive to my needs/ wants, and basically had already noted those changes herself. I felt like the most beautiful version of myself thanks to her. Also, she stuck around and did my friends makeup. She is personable, fun, and even gave me tips for the big day- she felt like a big sister! I couldn’t have asked for more. If you get Danna as your stylist, you are so lucky!"
Emily Bailey - "Brittany and her team are amazing ! Not only are they super talented (I had bridesmaids from all over the country who were impressed) but their personalities are exactly what you want on the morning before your wedding. They bring calmness but also cheer and happiness. They stayed on schedule and helped out in any way they could. Couldn't sing their praises enough!"
Sarah Tanner - "Brittany was absolutely wonderful! I was having my engagement photos done in the Charleston area at sunrise and Brittany went above and beyond coming to our Airbnb at 3:00 AM to do my hair and makeup. She was so flexible and accomodating and still wonderful to work with at such an early hour! My makeup was absolutely beautiful. Exactly what I wanted - slight drama without being too much - and it photographed beautifully. It lasted all day as well. My hair was perfect, she gave me the most beautiful beachy waves with boho braids. I couldn't have been happier and would definitely recommend Brittany!"
Ana Michunovich - "Brittany and her team were SUCH a joy to work with!! She was incredibly professional and did an amazing job. I would recommend her over and over again to any brides on the hunt for a hair and makeup artist."
Kayla Brockwell - "Brittany is AMAZING! I had what felt like a wedding nightmare when my hair/make up artist went AWOL just TWO months before my wedding. I was panicking and thought I would never find a replacement, but then I found Wild Ivory Beauty. Brittany was so responsive and answered all of my questions professionally and timely. I was an out-of-state bride so I had my hair/makeup trial just 2 days before the wedding. After my trial i was so grateful that my original girl backed out on me because Brittany was so friendly and so talented! I felt so beautiful after my trial. She listened to everything i said I wanted and made it a reality. On the wedding day Brittany and her team showed up on time and were so fun! All 9 of my bridesmaids, my mother, and my flower girl had their hair and makeup done, and every single one of them looked straight out a magazine! My hair and make up was flawless, and photographed beautifully. Brittany and her team stayed not just on schedule but ahead of schedule! Which was so important to me. I definitely recommend Wild Ivory Beauty!"
Audrey Schrock - "Brittany did an amazing job working with my hair and giving me what I pictured. I received soooo many compliments. She was patient and so sweet. 11/10 would recommend! I've never worked with anyone so professional."
Jessica Neves Menezes - "I was so glad we chose to work with Brittany. The pictures of her work amazed me. Definitely my favorite. I contacted her a little bit more than a month before our wedding because I was having such a hard time trying to find a professional who had the style I was looking for, the flexibility and reasonable pricing. She was very responsive to messages and very kind. Our wedding was at 10 am, so she was on our hotel at 6 am, just like promised. Brittany also did my mom's hair and makeup, who looked she was 20 years-old because of the beautiful makeup and hair. Concerning my mom's hair, which is very short, Brittany was very honest and flexible about the pricing. Brittany also chose the right undertone for my foundation right away. Every professional I had worked with before mistakenly applied a cold undertone and tried to fix it afterwards with bronzing products just because I have a very pale skin. I have short and natural curly hair... not so easy. But Brittany did the most beautiful side bun, which perfectly matched my dress and was so elegant. Everyone told me I looked gorgeous. What else was great?! No surprises!!! We had 3 vendors that changed pricing right before the wedding, 1 that was super late and the hotel didn't deliver the wedding programs. But I had a very peaceful morning because I was with Brittany and, of course, because my husband only told me about everything that had gone wrong 2 days later!"
Lindsey Reynolds - "Brittany was incredibly to work with! Not only is she one of the nicest people ever, she is incredibly professional and talented. She spent almost 4 hours with me during my makeup and hair trial making sure we got everything just right. I searched high and low for someone who I felt captured my style and the vibe of our wedding so I was grateful to have found her. She felt like part of the crew on my wedding day and had an awesome calm energy and was flexible with us. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for beauty services in Charleston! She is the best."
Jenya Zdbyel - "They made me feel like a model on the day of my photoshoot. Thank you for the great make up and hair. I would highly recommend this crew!"
Sara Tufano - "Brittany was incredibly accommodating and professional. The hair style came out better than the picture! Can't thank her enough."
Preea Bivek-Patel - "Brittany, I am so happy that I found you. I think I was stressing everyone out with how delayed I was finding someone to do my hair and makeup, but stumbling upon you paid off. You are the sweetest person ever and I loved all of my looks for the events. You killed them all!"
Kara Nightingale - "So happy that I chose Wild Ivory Beauty! Brittany was so easy to work with and was so flexible and accommodating. Not to mention, so sweet. I spent much time researching and was so impressed when I came across Wild Ivory Beauty. Their value is unbeatable. Brittany did my bridal hair along with four other and we were all SO happy with the way our hair turned out and how it stayed in place all day. I can't recommend Wild Ivory Beauty enough!!"
Michelle Puckett - "Brittany was amazing! She was responsive, professional, arrived early, and consulted with me about what I wanted. She did the trial makeup almost perfectly without any of my feedback yet - we made 1 small adjustment from that and the wedding day makeup was EXACTLY what I wanted. It was beautiful, long lasting, and natural for our outdoor ceremony. Affordable pricing. Highly recommend Wild Ivory! I will post some pictures on the wall."
Kendall Moore - "I got married this past Saturday and Brittany was an absolute pleasure to have there getting myself and my ladies ready for the big evening! As we were all looking around not one of us looked bad- we all looked stunning and that is rare to find these days. Not only was she great at her job, but she has such a bright and fun personality that makes everyone feel comfortable and the room full of laughter like she just fit right in with our group. I can't wait to get my wedding pictures back thanks to her. The one thing I was anxious about on the big day was my hair because of the Charleston humidity, but let me tell you- it was flawless! Both hair and makeup lasted the whole night. Thank you so much Brittany for making us look stunning and laughing with us the whole day. If anyone is looking for someone please do yourself a favor and book her- you won't regret it!"
Mary Watson - "It was such a pleasure to work with Brittany and her team. She spent time with each of us making sure to create exactly what we had envisioned. The hair and makeup came out even better than the pictures we had shown her! After having multiple hair and makeup fails at previous friend’s weddings I was a little nervous about getting it done on my wedding day. But there was nothing to worry about with Brittany…she exceeded my expectations and then some. I have never felt so beautiful! All of the girls looked absolutely stunning and loved the way their hair and makeup turned out. She was super flexible when some of the girls changed their mind last minute about styling. She also was very responsive to messages and kept in touch frequently to make sure I was comfortable with the “day of” schedule. She has such a wonderful attitude and personality. I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and a more beautiful outcome."
Zelle Joubert - "Brittany was so sweet, kind, and fun. She and her assistants brought a very happy vibe to our wedding day and we were thrilled to have her do our makeup. We got married out on the beach and couldn't have been happier to have our make up last through the heat, the wind, and the dancing. Our makeup lasted for the entire wedding without running, smearing, or sweat dripping it all off (which was GREAT for our beach wedding). I totally recommend her, especially if you're getting married out on the beach....she knows how to make that stuff last!"
Melissa Miley - "Brittany was amazing. Let me first say, I am a wedding photographer so I have seen and met tons of hair/makeup artists while on the job. I first met Brittany while I was photographing a wedding, and she stood out to me for 3 reasons: 1. The makeup was natural but still dark enough to show up well in photos. 2. ALL the bridesmaids hair and makeup looked stunning- not just a few of them. 3. Her personality. Brittany is fun and sweet and bubbly and she totally gives 100% to each and every person. This was no different when I hired her for my own wedding make up and hair. She was organized and responsive leading up to the wedding. She offered suggestions to me and my mom on getting a hair piece for my grandma. When the big day came, she did a WONDERFUL job and I was absolutely thrilled with the look she gave me. My mom and grandma looked more beautiful than I have ever seen them. And here is the kicker--- I had my wedding planned for 9/9/17- the day that hurricane Irma's evacuation began. We had to reschedule the ceremony (literally the night before) for 9/8 one day early, and Brittany was still willing to change plans on such a short notice. Brittany, I can not thank you enough for going with the flow and being there to make me look and feel like a total queen! I will forever recommend you!!! If you are a bride reading this and thinking about hiring Wild Ivory Beauty--- you will NOT REGRET IT!!!"
Katherine Littleton - 5 stars are just not enough for Brittany. She was amazing! She travels to wherever you are getting ready, which makes life so much easier. The hairstyles are put together while still being soft and romantic, and her makeup looks great in photos while still looking natural andnot caked-on in real life. She's also so much fun to chat with, which makes working with her even better! I cannot recommend her enough!
Angela Palmieri - "Brittany and her team did a great job! Very professional, easy going and made our party look stunning. Would highly recommend."
Jennifer Marcus - "Brittany was wonderful to work with, she was detail oriented, caring, gentle and has a real flare for what she does!! She not only did my wedding hair/makeup but also our maternity shot!! Highly recommended!"
