After using Face Value for a couple of amazing haircuts and a massage I decided to have Lucinda do my makeup for the most important day of my life! My wedding on July 6th. When I went in for my trial Lucinda spent well over the allotted time slot to make everything perfect. She spent many meticulous minutes making me look perfect for a trial! She even went as far as to put fake lashes on to make sure I liked the look before using them on the big day.
Two days before my wedding my hairstylist/ bridesmaid had a death in the family leaving me without a hairstylist for my big day.
I called Lucinda immediately freaking out after hours and left a message asking her if there was anything she could do. She called me back quickly, I didn't expect a call till the next day but she assured me her amazing receptionist Melissa would call me in the morning and to calm down because she had me covered.
They even gave me the bundle price after I hadn't bought it in a bundle.

On the day of my wedding I was running late and when I called Lucinda she laughed at me told me to breathe and she wasn't going anywhere.
When I got there she put my mind at ease, she was more than a makeup artist but a friend who made me have fun, and enjoy myself.
At that point I met my hairstylist, and I cant believe I forgot her name but she was absolutely amazing. I showed her what I wanted, and without a trial she made it even better than the picture. it was beautiful and now I was relieved, My hair nightmare was over.
Then Lucinda turned me around to show me my perfect makeup. She made me look beautiful! Everything was exactly what I asked for, but better than imagined.
She promised me other than my lipstick I wouldn't have to apply anything again and it would stay on the entire night! She was telling the truth! I have pictures well into my reception where everything is still perfectly in place.

I have included a photo and will post more once I get some that better show the back of my hair.
Not only did they make me look exactly how I wanted to on my wedding day, but they did it with professional quality for an amazing price.
Most of all- They have always with every experience(but especially this one) treated me like I was a famous movie star. They treat you as if you are paying them a million dollars for their services, and you never see anyone without a smile. I recommend Face Value to Anyone looking for any treatment but especially when you want to be pampered. I have never had a salon pamper me with such class at such a wonderful rate.

I'm getting married in a few weeks and this was my pre-wedding haircut and highlights. Yary did an awesome job (as usual) and I'm couldn't be happier with the cut and the color. It's so easy to take care of and I feel like she always cuts my hair to suit my hair-type. It's never looked better. Thank you, thank you!!

Jessica says:
Yary is my regular stylist and always does an amazing job. I was in a wedding recently so I booked an appointment for an up-do. Yary took my not so long hair and once it was pinned up and finished it looked like I had been growing my hair for a year. We had torrential down pours that day and when I got home that night you couldn't tell that I had been running through the rain, dancing, and that my hair had been done 12+ hours before. Thanks Yary and the Face Value team for always making my visits a pleasure.

Dear Lucinda,

Charlie and I returned from our honeymoon, and I wanted to thank you so much for the stunning hair and make-up job you did for me at the wedding!! I loved it and I got so many comments about my looks! It was great to feel so beautiful on my special day!

Also, thank you for keeping our appointment even though you had a personal emergency that Sunday of my wedding. I really appreciate all the effort you put into my wedding during the trials and the day of.

Also, please thank the stylist who did Charlie's hair as well - he looked so handsome!

I will make sure to post excelled reviews soon! I'm also submitting our wedding to several magazines/blogs so will let you know if we get posted. We are slowly getting photos on Flikr as well, and I'll send a link once they are all up.

I wish you all the best this holiday season!

Warm regards,
Lauren

Will is in one word--AWESOME! He made me feel like a princess on Saturday and I can't thank him enough. I came in for hilites and a cut and when he found out I was going to a wedding that evening, he gave me the most amazing updo! I got so many compliments and felt pretty for the first time in a long while! Thank you, Will! See you in July.

Hi Lucinda,

I wanted to thank you for doing a wonderful job doing hair and makeup on my wedding day. I was so happy with my hair and makeup - the curls lasted all night! My bridesmaids and mom look beautiful too - the girls you brought to help you out were absolutely great! You really went above and beyond to help us out and I really, really appreciate it! Below is a link to some pictures so you can see how everything turned out. Thanks again for your help!

Lucinda,

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for making me and my bridesmaids so beautiful this past March. We had a terrific time preparing for the wedding in your studio.

I'm including a few pictures Jack Looney took of the final product - each style was gorgeous, but I especially loved what you did with mine! Thanks for taking the time and pains to make it all so perfect.

All my best,
Colleen

Hi Lucinda, Nice mention on your blog! Thank you again for everything on my wedding day and weekend. You and your team did an amazing job and made things worry and stress-free for me!

Lucinda, Kristen, and Leah,

Thank you so much for all of your hard work on my wedding day! My bridesmaids and I all felt like queens and truly received star treatment. During my trial test run you carefully considered the vision I had for my special day and your team made that a reality and then some! You also put my mind at ease, assuring me that you would not allow me to leave unhappy and you most certainly delivered. Your team seemed genuinely interested in my day, wanting to know the details they wouldn't get to see from the salon and requesting pictures afterwards so they could see everything.
I tend to be fairly self-conscious and not very confident at all when it comes to my appearance. However, on my wedding day you successfully transformed me into the poised, self-assured bride that I always wanted to be on that day. I didn't have a care in the world when it came to my hair and make-up and I received multiple compliments. I can't recommend Lucinda and her team enough. I am so happy that my husband and I will be living near the salon so I can visit her often!

Alissa says:
Hi Lucinda,

I wanted to say thanks for the great makeup lesson last week. It looked nice through the rest of the day and my fiance liked it, too. I had a great time at your salon and you were fabulous to work with. I really appreciate all of the time you took to make sure I was 100% sure on what to do. I'll keep on practicing my application techniques so I can nail them on my wedding day! Just let me know when the blush and eyeshadows are in and I'll stop by to pick them up.

Thanks again!!

Alissa

Chen says:
Dear Lucinda:

Thank you so much for your incredible job! You are truly an artist. You have such great talents and tastes. Everything you touched turned to gold. I feel so beautiful but still myself on my wedding day. I received so many compliments from my families and my friends. My single girl friends asked me who did this amazing job and I already gave your information to them. You gave me the exact kind of look I had imagined, but even better. I feel so fortunate that I had found you! Working with you is such a pleasant experience. Thank you for your help when the wedding gown chaos happened.
I really appreciate your remarkable work and those little beauty secrets! You make my wedding perfect! Thank you!

Chen

Hi Lucinda,

You were amazing! I truly felt like a queen and still myself at the same time. I've never gotten so many compliments in my life! We found the perfect balance! You're so easy to work with. I had such a fun time with you before my wedding and I really appreciate your hard work. You're wonderful!

Jennie says:
Thank you for all your hard work in doing my hair and makeup! You did a wonderful job making me feel beautiful on my wedding day. In addition, you did an incredible job in making sure both my Mom and Scott's Mom felt and looked gorgeous. I greatly appreciated your willingness to meet with me on multiple occasions leading up to the wedding to ensure that both of us shared a vision and felt comfortable with my wedding day look. I also am grateful to you for making the last minute shopping trip to find the perfect hairpiece, when the one I had turned out not be the perfect match for my hair.



I cannot express how calm I was on my wedding day because I knew I was in such capable hands. I knew that if I woke up that morning and changed my mind about how I wanted my hair or makeup, you would be able to accommodate me. As it was, once you did my hair and makeup and I had the chance to look in the mirror, I was so happy! I also appreciate how early you were willing to show up to ensure everybody was ready on time! Finally, I wanted to share a recent comment made by a friend while attending another couple's wedding. She leaned over during dinner and said, "I couldn't believe how perfect your skin looked at your wedding!" I think this statement is truly a testament to your work and ability to apply makeup in a way that looks very natural yet enhances your clients' beauty.



Again, you have my sincerest thanks! Please do not hesitate to provide future clients with my name, phone number, or email if you require a referral.


Warm Regards,
Jennie H. Melchior

Lindsay says:
I just want to thank you again for all of your help on my wedding day. You were without a doubt my favorite person to work with of our entire wedding weekend! I really appreciated your responsiveness and willingness to meet with me before the wedding to plan and practice the hairstyle I wanted, and your calm and confident manner put me at ease on the big day. All the bridesmaids looked terrific and commented on your friendly, easygoing, and capable demeanor throughout the day. I loved how my hair and makeup turned out and felt that I really looked my absolute best.
Finally, having you there before and after the ceremony for the pictures was really a priceless treat. I really felt like I had an ally amidst all the chaos, and I was confident that one person was making sure I looked my best rather than just trying to get through all the photos! It was really a pleasure to have you by my side on my wedding day and for that I offer my sincerest thanks!

I wish you well and hope to stay in touch!
Sincerely,
Lindsay

Tai says:
Dear Lucinda,
We had a wonderful wedding! Thank you so much. The touch-ups after the ceremony, when I knew I would cry. The coaching during the pictures, when I am notoriously awkward in photos. You provide an amazing service, just an AMAZING service. The best praise: even Christian loved my hair and makeup, and he always prefers me without. And you were so much fun to have around! Please if you ever have any clients who require a reference, contact me. I'd be so pleased to say good things about you to anyone willing to listen. Thank you again, so much.
All the best,
Tai

Thank you for making me look so beautiful on my wedding day. Your ability to work calmly amidst the chaos was wonderful. You made me relax and enjoy my most important moment. Everyone loved my makeup and the pictures showed your amazing work. I had many people ask who did my hair and makeup, I happily told them about you.

Mana says:
Dear Lucinda,

I just wanted to write and let you know what a wonderful job you did with me and my mother's make-up for the wedding. As I told you, I have never, ever liked the job that ANY make-up artist has done with my make-up. I've had industry professionals attempt to do my make-up and the result has been SO less than satisfactory. Not with you, though. My make-up looked amazing - not only in pictures, but close-up, in real life as well. As we discussed before the wedding, my fiancé (now husband) was so concerned that I would look unlike myself with caked-up make-up all over me at the wedding. That, to his great pleasure, and mine, was not at all what I looked like. You made me look like myself, only BETTER. I got SO many compliments throughout the night and now that I have some pictures, on my pictures. Attached are some initial pictures that Jen Fariello has forwarded along. I just want you to see your work product.

But your amazing work product was not all. You were so helpful and so wonderful all day. Your professionalism and kindness were so appreciated by me and my family. You were so sweet to all my friends and my family and your commitment to staying with me through all the pictures was priceless to me. I had the peace of mind of knowing that you would not allow any hair to be out of place or any make-up to be unsightly.

Thank you for everything. Thank you for your amazing talents and your kind heart and your commitment to your art. You made the day so much easier and you made me and my mom beautiful.

I hope we have the occasion to work with each other again. Be sure that I will be recommending you very highly to anyone who'll listen.

Warmest regards and many thanks,
Mana

Your calm manner and makeup and hair expertise were a real blessing! I looked stunning! All of my attendants raved about your work. And you were fast, not dragging it on and on. How refreshing.
Your touch ups and stylist work on the pictures made me feel like a star! And the pictures were gorgeous!
Thank you again, you made the day perfect.

My makeup looked great. It was great for pictures, but still looked good face to face. Just what I hoped to have on my wedding day. Thank you for listening to me and giving me just the right look.
