Winter Chic Cari

We say it every time, and it's always true, but Cari really was one of our favorite brides ever! She was laid back and sweet, all the while orchestrating a dazzling wedding celebration with no detail left undone. Between her sexy slinky dress, fur stole, sparkling bridesmaids, and hot leading man, it was a true classic Hollywood celebration! We were so lucky to get the opportunity to PRIMP her special day!

Watch her teaser wedding video here!


From Cari:

"Erin and Jess, you crushed it! People thought I was a bit nuts wanting a winter wedding, but there is something magical and sexy about it, and let's be honest, you don't sweat! My hair and makeup was exactly how I pictured (whatever winter chic means when I described it to you:), and I felt like a star on my special day. My bridesmaids looked like total hotties, and really glittered in their gold dresses. The entire process of working with you could not have been easier and more relaxing, and you were a fun duo to have around on the wedding day. Thanks again for everything, and I am excited for the next bride that gets to spend their special day with you. xo"

We told you she was the sweetest!

Graceful Gretchen

As soon as Gretchen sited 'Marilyn and Grace' as inspirations, we were hooked! 

We had so much fun PRIMPing Gretchen, her gal pals, and her little dog, too. Her adorable niece even assisted us by holding hairbrushes and suggesting the perfect shimmer.

Gretchen held her wedding on a Monday, and we can not think of a better way to start the week!

From Gretchen:

Hello ladies,

I just wanted to drop a quick line to say thank you for your work and your patience on Monday! I was told by several people who had no idea what my goal was with hair and makeup that I looked like a mix of Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe - so mission accomplished!


Trindy, the Aussie Princess

Trindy and her party came all the way from Australia for a destination rooftop wedding in New York City. She was immediately warm, bubbly, and hilarious. She knew exactly what she wanted and was not afraid to go bold. WE LOVED IT!

Her maids were all super cute and kind. It is fun to work with such beautiful canvases.

Maybe we should go down under for a visit? Yes, mate?

From Trindy, 'You guys were amazing. Thank you for all your hard work!!!!!'

Rock 'n' Roll 'n' Really Pretty Liz

Liz is one very cool gal! She is a little bit sugar, a little bit spice, and always cool as a cucumber... Even on her wedding day. We knew we were a beauty match made in heaven as soon as we met!

We loved the vintage feel of her wedding party. Every girl had a different look to go with her unique personality and style. You'll swoon over the final product. It's perfect!

From Liz, 'You guys were totally great and I could not have been happier with how I looked!'

It was so much fun doing everyone's hair and makeup, in the dreamy Metropolitan Building, and hanging out with the girls. Liz is a special lady and we look forward to seeing her in the future!

Our Beautiful Scottish Bird, Stacey!

Stacey and her party were hilarious! Their Scottish wit and sailor mouths had us laughing all day. Even Grandma (who we adored!) was in on the (dirty) jokes.

Stacey's hubbie won the lottery! She is sweet, funny, and absolutely stunning.

We loved this group! Hopefully they will have another opportunity to visit and be PRIMPed in the future!

From Stacey:

Hi Girlies,

I hope you are well. Just thought I would send you a link to some of the photos we have had back so far from our wedding day.

Loved my hair and make-up and despite a little bit of rain we had an absolutely fab day in NYC!

Thanks so much for all your help in getting me ready…hair and make-up lasted all day and my girls looked amazing! You guys were soo incredibly patient (apologies for my lack of decisiveness (!)) and made the morning of the big day as stress-less as it could be….Ohhh also thanks for my something blue - not entirely sure where that "blue dental floss" went to…..

Kindest regards

PRIMP on Style Me Pretty!

Caitlin was an amazing bride, so positive and excited. 

And beautiful, to boot!

She sparkles and shoot rainbows out of her eyes and makes everyone around her smile. So, it was no surprise at all to us when her wedding was featured on the popular and adorable Style Me Pretty blog. We can not wait to hear more about her special day!

PRIMP at Tiffany's Blue Book Gala 2013

This year Tiffany's celebrated their anniversary, as well as their Gatsby inspired jewelry, with a star filled Blue Book Ball. The toast of the town showed up in their '20s inspired blue best to party under a giant Tiffany's box covering Rockefeller Plaza. 

Primp was invited to be a part of the hair and makeup team, headed by the amazing Amy Wright. Amy designed the looks for the event and the team of nine hair and makeup specialists styled dozens of female and male models, as well as the ROCKETTES! It was such an exhilarating exciting night! All the models looked beautiful, the Rockettes really are as stunning as you might imagine, and the buzz in the air was contagious. It was such an honor to be trusted with such an important event and to work with such talented artists.

Nothing can compare to the intimacy of a wedding, we enjoy becoming friends with each of our clients. But the magnitude and scale of this sort of event is both a challenge and a surprise. When all the glitter settles and you have a chance to admire your work, you can not help but be proud of all you have accomplished!
