"LAUREN+VANESSA were recommended to me by my venue, The Gramercy Park Hotel. They are the perfect team by providing color, cut, style and makeup. Lauren and Vanessa helped me figure out the best look for day-of and they did so in a low key, stress-free way. They really do what they say on their website: "On your wedding day you should feel like the most comfortable beautiful version of yourself." I highly recommend working with them. Start with a trial for hair and makeup and I am sure you will be happy! I will continue to use LAUREN+VANESSA as my regular hair go-to. So happy I found them!"

-Kate, Bride 

“I cannot put in words how lucky I was to have you both by my side all weekend long! Yes, it was the most incredible wedding and night of my life to be marrying Phil, but you two made me look and feel so beautiful and kept me so relaxed the entire time! It was such a good feeling to be with you both as I knew you would never let me down and exceeded any and all expectations I could have had!”

“Rachel of LAUREN+VANESSA did my Make-Up for my wedding! Besides making me look absolutely radiant, she had a way of keeping me calm amongst all the wedding chaos going on around us! Her make-up applications on myself & my bridal party came out absolutely gorgeous!! Rachel has a professional demeanor & a great personality in addition to being very talented!”

“Vanessa did the most incredible job at my wedding! My hair and makeup looked perfect-- I've never looked so beautiful. In addition, my bridesmaids looked incredible as well. She is so calming on the day of your wedding and is so focused on the bride. I will be going to Vanessa every time I have an event! She is truly incredible!”

-Lara Pinto, Bride

“We are two brides who made an appointment for a hair and makeup trial for our wedding. When Vanessa finished we were beyond happy with the results. We had a going away party after and had a chance to get our friends reactions. We got nothing but wonderful compliments. That night we decided and booked her. Vanessa is professional, prompt and willing to work with your ideas. We let her know some slight changes we wanted and on our wedding day everything came out even BETTER than our trial. She also styled both of our mother's hair, which also came out wonderful. We would book her again for an event and I am happy to recommend her to anyone.”

-Fabienne & Philana

“Vanessa and Lauren are fabulous! I used Lauren for my hair coloring and Vanessa for my cut leading up to my wedding. It was the best cut and color I have ever gotten. They spent so much time with me and never made me feel rushed. They listened to what I wanted and were professional and kind. Vanessa did my hair and makeup for my wedding. I did a trial beforehand. She had extensions made for me to match the color of my hair. Everything was perfection. Vanessa also did a fantastic job with my mom's hair and makeup the day of the wedding. Their team did the makeup and hair for my large bridal party. I could not have asked for better! I look forward to using them again for my cut and color and any other event I ever have! Highly recommended!”

- Alyssa, Bride

“I am really delighted to write a review for Vanessa Ungaro. What a find!! Not only did she do the most beautiful work, both hair and makeup but her warm and easy nature struck the perfect tone during our "getting ready" time. It can be a stressful few hours and instead we were all smiles.....especially when we saw how perfectly she interpreted just how the bride wanted to look.”

- Linda S., Mother Of The Bride

“Mable did my makeup and the makeup of my bridal party. She did a phenomenal job. Everyone felt and looked beautiful. Mable is very artistic and made everyone look natural yet so incredibly lovely. Also, the makeup lasted all night! Mable is warm and a talented professional. Her presence and artistry made my day so special!”

- Penelope, Bride

“Vanessa did my makeup for my wedding in June 2012, and my sister's hair and makeup at her wedding in November 2012. We both cannot recommend her enough! She was responsive to any questions we had leading up to the wedding, professional on the day of, and did a tremendous job. We were thrilled with how our hair and makeup looked in our photos, and I continue to use Vanessa for my hair and makeup to this day. She is a sweetheart with a lovely personality, and will make every bride feel like they are the most gorgeous bride out there. I cannot recommend her enough!”
