Leslie Gallagher did my hair and makeup for my wedding on May 10, 2014. I went to her house to do a trial hair and makeup session on May 9th, the day of the rehearsal. Leslie was so wonderful that I had her do my hair and makeup on May 13th for my beach wedding photo shoot. She is AMAZING: very easy to work with and talk to, professional, and reasonable priced. She’s the very best there is to offer. I'm an island girl, born and raised in the Pacific, but now live in the Mainland, so I had to plan my destination wedding long-distance. I contacted Leslie via email and made the appointment a few months before my wedding, and I never met her until the day before my wedding, at the trail session. Everything worked out perfectly. At the trial session she spent over two hours working with me to create exactly what I wanted for my big day. Leslie expects you to bring pictures of the styles you want hair and makeup wise, however she does have books/ albums of styles to look at and choose from. My trial session was done early in the morning and my hair and makeup still looked PERFECT at midnight after the Rehearsal dinner!! On my wedding day Leslie and one of her assistants met us at the wedding location at 10am (the wedding started at 3:30pm). Leslie did not leave until after I got my dress on and was ready to walk down the aisle. She stayed to help me put on my dress and touchup my makeup and hair right before heading down the aisle!!! On the day of the wedding Leslie did hair and makeup for all my bridesmaids, my two flower girls, my mother, and me. Everyone brought pictures (mostly from Pintrest) of the hair style they wanted. It was AMAZING how perfectly she matched them ALL to the pictures they brought in. She did everything from up-dos, to intricate braids, to long wavy curls. The makeup was perfect and totally natural looking and lasted ALL night!! The entire bridal party was thrilled with her work and throughout the wedding countless people commented on how pretty my hair looked.

Leslie is absolutely amazing!!! I really cannot thank her enough for making me so beautiful on my wedding day. My husband was absolutely blown away by how great I looked. Leslie was on time, friendly & does great work. I would recommend her to any bride looking to have hair & make up services on their wedding day.

Leslie did an awesome job on my hair and make up. I scheduled a trial run with her two weeks before just so we would both have an idea when it came to the wedding day. At the trial, she was so relaxed and took the ideas I had and came up with something even more amazing than I could have imagined. My make up was beautiful and beyond perfect. I left feeling like a princess in jeans and a t-shirt! When it came to the wedding day, we showed up a half hour late and I had a black eye. Leslie was cool as a cucumber. She relaxed me and actually got me laughing. My hair stayed perfectly in place all day and my make-up was flawless! No one even knew I had a black eye!! If you are looking for some one to do your hair/make up I HIGHLY recommend Leslie. She's worth every penny and I will most definitely be going back to her for special events!!!

Leslie came highly recommended through coordinators Lissa Wilson and Keri Shepherd. She did not disappoint, and in fact, really helped to make our wedding even more beautiful. Leslie is relaxed, easy going and has amazing vision and creativity. She did an up-do on my maid-of-honor that really matched her personality, and the same for my bridesmaid. She also did their make-up accordingly and helped to make the wedding party BEAUTIFUL. When she worked on my hair and make-up, it was even more amazing than what I had ever envisioned. Leslie Gallagher is an amazing make-up artist! She is patient, listens to your needs, and makes it happen!

I looked for months before booking Leslie because I wanted my makeup to look amazing for my wedding. I'm so thrilled I chose Leslie, she was even better than I had hoped! I have had my makeup done by other makeup artists for photo shoots before and haven't cared for it. Leslie was so much better and can do a variety of looks. My hair stayed perfectly in place for my outdoor ceremony and my makeup was flawless even after I cried through the entire ceremony!!! 7 hours later my makeup still looked fresh, I didn't touch up once :D I highly recommend her. She was very professional, arrived early, and was well priced
Perfection for a Perfect day!

I was so nervous originally about my hair and makeup for the big day. We did a destination wedding so we did not have have time for a "trial run" as so many brides to be do. Leslie came, and the instant she walked in the room on my wedding day just gave me reassurance. She wasconfident, prefessional, and on time.. which is a very big deal to me. She made my makeup look beautiful and I did a side chigon bun that I saw a starlet wear her hair as and I was blown away just at how beautiful it turned out. My most worrisome part for me was that my wedding day seemed to be the most windy day EVER.. Leslie in stride did not seemed worried one bit which reassured me that she is one true professional. My hair looked beautiful and not one hair fell out of place while every guests hair looked like they wend through a wind tunnel! My makeup beautiful and did not feel caked on, I did not have to do any touchups throught the evening, she did such a fantastic job..I only wish I lived closer to her so i could use her more often! I cannot thank Leslie enough for making me feel so perfect on such a perfect day. THANK YOU LESLIE!!!!
