The girls at Island Glow were truly amazing. Alex, Kayla, and Star did hair and makeup for myself, my six bridesmaids, and four guests of honor (moms/step-moms/aunts). They did an excellent job and finished right on time! I was a little nervous because I did my trial with Michelle, who owns the company, and I have heard horror stories about doing a trial with one person and being serviced by another on your wedding day. That was not the case here! These girls worked so hard and were so patient, even with my mom who rarely wears heavy makeup and was nervous about looking too glam. Every single one of us looked stunning! More...

Michelle from Island Glow did an OUTSTANDING job not only on my bridal makeup, but my entire bridal party’s as well as my Mom and Mother-in-Law for my July wedding in Washington, D.C.! I knew Michelle would be my forever go-to makeup girl, when she agreed to do my makeup for our sunrise engagement pictures last summer. She arrived at our apartment at 3:30 AM to do my makeup and made sure that I looked amazing for our engagement photos in D.C. She even helped me do my hair! On our wedding day, Michelle arrived early and set-up quickly in our bridal suite, all the while chatting and getting to know everyone who was there. She was incredibly friendly and such a joy to be around! Her positivity and contagious personality made everyone feel at ease and comfortable in her make-up chair. She even let some girls and my Mom bring some of their own make-up to use. Everyone’s makeup lasted ALL DAY and looked flawless in the D.C. summer heat! At the end of the night, my make-up looked just as it had that morning when Michelle did it. I felt like an absolute princess and didn’t want to take my make-up off that night! Michelle is THE BEST wedding make-up artist and she will forever be my go-to makeup and beauty girl! More...

They do great work and are super fast!! Couldn’t have asked for a better duo than these two who did my hair and makeup for my wedding.

I had an amazing experience with Island Glow for my wedding day! Michelle was so understanding and sweet during the entire process! She is incredibly talented with makeup and spray tans! My hair and makeup held up beautifully throughout my wedding day and into the night! I could not have asked for a better beauty team for myself and my girls on my big day More...

That is the one word that comes to mind when I think of Island Glow. From the initial emails before I had decided who to pick, to the final product on my wedding day, I felt like I was really being taken care of! Michelle and Brittney had quite a lot on their plate on my big day (8 bridesmaids, my mom's lashes, and my hair and makeup), and they made it all come together flawlessly. I was a bit nervous because of the weather holding up too (it rained in the evening), and Michelle's wonderful makeup products held up throughout the ENTIRE evening. The prices were fair, and all in all, I could not be happier with this amazing team. If you are unsure, trust me, this is the BEST vendor for hair and makeup! More...

Choosing Michelle and her team was such a good decision for myself and my girls. She was very accommodating and patient for those of us who knew what we wanted! Each of us felt beautiful when we walked down the aisle! Thank you so much! More...

Michelle and the team at Island Glow gave me the BEST wedding tan, hair and makeup experience! My hair and makeup trial was 2 months before my wedding, and I was immediately comfortable with Michelle and Brittany. They listened to my requests and made it come to life with the help of some photo references.

Michelle came to my house 2 days before my wedding to give myself and my soon-to-be husband spray tans. It was a 5 minute process max: easy, and I didn't have to clean or prepare a thing, Island Glow brings a pop up booth and just needs an electrical outlet. The color was natural and gorgeous, and I received so many compliments. My husband did not, which was GOOD, because his was so natural no one knew he had gotten a tan!

On my wedding day, Michelle and a team of 3 arrived to the venue 15 minutes early and were prepared to start right on time. 10 women had their hair and makeup done, and they were flexible enough to add one more person who wanted in, since they were ahead of schedule. Mother of the Bride was a little loony all day, running around and not ready at her designated time, and the team just laughed and worked with her to make sure she got exactly what she wanted hair and makeup-wise, when she wanted it.

I had pre-arranged for Michelle to stay through first look and photos, until the start of the ceremony for touch ups. But she did so much more: she helped my flower girls with the baby's breath crowns the florist dropped off when we couldn't get them to fit. She adjusted my dress in pictures, and was ready with blotting sheets and lipstick at a moments notice. She put in a flower piece that I had forgotten was coming, and my veil, when she hadn't even known that was happening. The Island Glow experience was AMAZING and all 10 people loved their final look, which lasted all night in the rain, and the fun experience of getting glam with Island Glow!

Michelle and Brittany were absolutely amazing! Brittany did my hair. I showed her some Pinterest photos and she did her on twist on it. I have never had so many compliments on my hair!! We had a little mixup with some Hong’s but we worked through it and my day was amazing. More...

Michelle was quick, punctual, and very professional. Having my hair and makeup done was a very relaxing and enjoyable process. I had some kiddos who wanted to watch and she included them by allowing them to hand her bobby pins and they loved it! More...

Michelle and Katie were absolutely amazing to work with on my wedding day. They both were flexible when I wanted to change parts of my look last minute and listened to what I wanted while also adding their professional opinion. I was able to trust them with such an important event fully and was confident walking down the aisle, knowing they did an amazing job and I was looking perfect. I couldn't imagine a better team to work with on an emotional and stressful day! More...

Michelle and her team were nothing short of amazing! They were right on time bright and early for the wedding and kept all 9 of us on track and we finished just in time! It was so stress free working with them- not to mention everyone looked beautiful! More...

Michelle and her team were rockstars on my wedding day! Michelle is made sure I liked every little detail about my make up and hair. Michelle is such a beautiful, kind person. She is so talented with her eye for beauty. Anything is didn't care for with hair she would have the hairstylist teak it to be perfect. We are so happy that we used Island glow. More...

I’m obsessed with Michelle’s work! Her talent is amazing and her passion for what she does is evident in her work. She made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day.

Michelle was awesome in helping me choose what “look” would be best for my wedding day makeup. She perfected my makeup and didn’t hesitate to fix anything. I love you could choose her wedding package for myself and the girls that included everyone to get eyelashes and the bride to receive air brush makeup. She was very easy to work with.
Brittany did my hair for the wedding day. She is very talented. I had three pictures of how I wanted the front, side, and back of my hair to look. She was able to bring together my vision amazingly.

A team for your “glam squad” !!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about these ladies. As someone who is extraordinarily pale and had never had a spray tan before, I was nervous about how it would turn out. Michele put my mind at ease, and after a consultation on the phone and trial I felt confident that I was in the right hands. Mandy ended up doing my tan the weekend of the wedding, and she was such a joy. Both of these ladies are passionate about their work and their customers AND ARE AVAILABLE 24/7!! WOW! They are willing to drop anything and everything for their brides. I was paranoid about how one area of my arm would turn out the next day, and Mandy assured me that I could call her and she would fix it in no time. Of course, I was worried for nothing, and everything was perfect. All I can say is that these ladies are true professionals who love their work and their clients. I look forward to working with them as long as I live in the Richmond area! More...

Michelle is by far the best. She is very professional and will meet you anywhere you are comfortable. The whole process is quick and easy. The tanning products were great. The tan stayed on my skin and not on my wedding dress. I would recommend her to anyone. More...

Michelle came to Vermont to do makeup and spray tans for myself and my bridesmaids. She was willing to go anywhere we were getting hair done to get makeup done for us. She made it fun, and everyone feel beautiful. Spray tans we set up in the hotel
Room and played music and it was just a blast! I would highly recommend her makeup and spray tans to anyone! She does a amazing job and I'm so greatful she came to Vermont. She will make you feel so comfortable throughout the process!
