Adorable Sunny Rebecca

Rebecca is beautiful, funny, smart, and so sweet. And a dead ringer for Anna Kendrick! We had too much fun primping her party.

Despite the threat of rain on her wedding day, she kept a sunny attitude and embraced the weather, whatever it may be. Try as you might, you can't control everything on your wedding day. Rebecca's positive outlook made for an enjoyable laid-back primpin' lady-time party!

Billy is one lucky dude!

'I just wanted to write a note to thank you and Danielle for making me look and feel like a princess. Billy was ecstatic :)'

Colette's Perfect Italian Wedding

Colette was a special bride. We immediately had a connection her and her kindhearted shy mother. It was an honor to spend the day with such amazing women. Colette, her mom, and her bridesmaids all looked stunning! We hope we get more opportunities to primp these sweet souls!

Colette sent us a Holiday Thank You card featuring some of the beautiful photographs from her wedding. How cute are they?!

'Thank you so much for making me, my mom, and girls look and feel beautiful. You are both so talented.'

Foxy Jane Fox

Jane Fox is one of the sweetest, coolest, funniest clients we have ever had the pleasure of PRIMPing! We love her!

Danielle and Erin were on hand for this fun day. Jane already looked like Snow White in real life, so we just upped her features, threw in some weave, and watched her transform into a fairy-tale, pin-up bridal babe right before our eyes!

Her bridesmaids were so fun and kind, and all looked beautiful in their jewel-tone dresses.

Danielle even gave the groom some tips on perking up his tired (uhm... maybe a tiny bit hungover... uhm) eyes!

We hope to PRIMP Jane again in the future! And just hang out. Because she's awesome.

From Jane:
I worked with Erin and Danielle for my March 2015 Brooklyn wedding. They did hair and make-up for me and my mom and my bridal party (3 bridesmaids). Not only were they both extremely professional and responsive to all my requests and questions, they were SO MUCH FUN to work with. They really put me at ease and the final result was impeccable. I had a hard time at first pinning down exactly what look I wanted to go with and I ended up doing two trials before my big day. Erin and Danielle were so patient and asked all the right questions so we could get to what I really wanted. If you are looking for a hair and make-up team that is relaxed, highly-skilled, and FUN, please go with PrimpNYC. I'd also add their prices are a GREAT value in the NYC market. Worth every penny.

PRIMP Hair Whisperer, Erin, Gets Hitched!

Erin here!

I married my love in a vineyard in North Carolina on August 30, 2014.

We PRIMPed the 5 bridesmaids, the 2 little girls, the 2 moms, and me, of course.

Jess handled makeup with talent, grace, humor, and finesse.

I am a control freak and thought doing everyone's hair would be a good idea. They would have the 'look' I was going for and I would have something to keep me busy. A couple heads in, I realized doing 9 hair styles, plus my own, on my wedding day, was a terrible idea! HOLY STRESSED OUT!

Luckily everyone survived, I only almost cried 14 times, and everyone looked beautiful.

It was an amazing day. So much fun! So much love! I could not have gotten through any of it without Jess by my side. She offered support, confidence, calmness, and love all throughout the day. I am so lucky to have her as a business partner, but more so, as a friend.

Moral of the story: Get married! Have fun! Have people you trust and love around you! Eat something. Drink lots of water. Make sure Jess is there! Don't do your mother's and mother-in-law's and everyone else's hair on your wedding day! Sweat, dance, and party... your PRIMP hair and makeup will last all night!

Jess does her magic
Mother-in-law in hair, Mom in makeup

Just look at my eyes! Jess made them look big and beautiful, instead of their everyday small and hooded.
Being a bride in a field.
Mom, Dad, Mom-in-law

The hair and makeup were sweat-proof, cry-proof, dance-proof, and champagne-proof!
