“Tina is awesome! I had hair trials with many different people to do my hair for my wedding day. I am very picky and was starting to get nervous that I wouldn't be able to find someone. Tina was my savior! She is patient, listened to what I wanted, and proceeded to do my hair EXACTLY the way I wanted in both the trial and on the wedding day. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. She responded to all of my questions in a very prompt manner whenever I emailed her. Tina arrived early on the day of the wedding and stuck to the schedule she created for my bridal party. All my girls looked beautiful and the whole getting ready experience before the ceremony was very calm and relaxing thanks to Tina. I highly recommend her!!
“Magnificent Brides team did an AMAZING job on all my bridesmaids' hair and makeup! They were extremely efficient, successfully completing the hair and makeup of 15 girls the morning of my wedding! The majority of the time, they were ahead of schedule, very impressive! All the girls looked beautiful - hair was stylish and sophisticated; makeup was natural yet stunning. Most importantly, they were a pleasure to have around in the morning - talkative, calm, fun, it felt like we've all been friends forever! I would recommend them with 110% confidence to ALL brides!!!!”

“Tina made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire planning process. From the initial meeting to the trial, the scheduling, and the day of my wedding! The quality of her work was superior! She was able to work with your best features and enhance them. Not only did I look beautiful, but it lasted the entire day! I looked just as beautiful at the end of the reception as I did at the beginning. One of Tina's best qualities is her superior communication. She listens first and then addresses your questions or concerns. All phone calls and emails were returned with unparalleled speed and professionalism. Do not hesitate to contact Magnificent Brides.

“Tina provided outstanding and professional service. She was able to accommodate my request to come to my home the morning of my wedding. Tina's enthusiastic nature and upbeat personality were exactly what I needed to start off my wedding day and tame my nerves. Her passion for her work is obvious through her amazing bridal creations and technical skills. I have naturally curly hair and my biggest concern was whether or not my curls would hold up all day or fall victim to a severe case of the frizzies. It was perfect. Tina styled my hair so perfectly that it held its place the entire day right until the end of our celebrations well into the late evening. My bridesmaids looked stunning as well. Everyone in my wedding party was thrilled with the results. No bride should go without Tina's services for such an important and monumental occasion. If you're planning a wedding book Tina's services before anything else. The rest will follow!!!”
Tina is great to work with, and so fast! We had 9 girls have their hair done before noon on my wedding day, and everyone was done within their half-hour time slots with great looks. She was very flexible on working with me on my hair and making a few adjustments to make sure it was exactly what I wanted. I'd highly recommend her for your wedding. She's a true professional!
I contacted Magnificent Brides after hearing about Tina from a coworker. Tina was booked and she referred an artist from her team. Arte was a true professional and a pleasure to work with. She did an amazing job on all of my girls. I would highly recommend Magnificent Brides to anyone!
We had Desi and Cathy from Magnificent Brides working with my bridal party of 14!! I was so worried about finding a team that could accommodate a large party in a timely manner. Tina assured me that her team was experienced and they would have everyone done with time to spare. I loved that they were able to touch everyone up before they left and everyone's hair held for the entire evening!! Fabulous job Magnificent Brides!!!!

It was wonderful working with you both...and I will always be happy to highly recommend you to anyone! Thank you so much again for everything!”
“I cannot say enough about Magnificentbrides! Tina was FABULOUS!! Tina was fun to work with but also very professional. Working with her was a dream and so convenient. Tina arrived at the hotel right on time. We never had to worry about going to a salon or getting caught in bad weather. At first, my daughter, the bride, was very uncertain about an updo. Tina did a "practice" about two weeks before the wedding and my daughter was sold! Without exception, everyone was pleased with their hair on the day of the wedding. Tina did a wide variety of styles in a very short time. She even managed to add the groom's mother at the very last minute! I cannot thank her enough for making my daughter's wedding day so perfect!”
– very happy MOM
“Thanks, Mag Brides for making Stephanie's day absolutely perfect!!!! Your entire team was amazing!!!
“My wedding day started out with being pampered by Magnificent Brides, I was so pleased with working with. The professionalism, experience and personality of this beauty team, made me look like a movie star the entire day of my wedding. The many compliments I received from my guests was a testimony of what a great job they did. Not to mention my husband (till this day) telling me how beautiful I looked. I felt very comfortable working with Tina and Arte to achieve the look I was striving after. They both have the flexibility, skill and passion to allow anyone to create the look they desire for their special day. Tina's expertise gave body to my long flat hair into long-lasting beautiful curls. Tina did a marvelous job at making my hair look beautiful without it feeling too heavy, which I appreciated. I can confidently say that I look back at my wedding pictures with a smile.”
“Tina did my hair and 10 of my bridesmaids and flower girls for my wedding. We all looked absolutely beautiful! I brought in a photo I found in a magazine of the hairstyle I wanted and Tina was able to duplicate it exactly to a tee. If you can't find a style, Tina is so experienced she can help you with something that looks perfect on you. All of our up do's stayed perfect the whole 13 hour day! If your looking for a dependable, experienced, professional hair stylist that will come to you on your wedding day look no further...Tina with Magnificent Brides will make you look beautiful!” -Kate
“Desi and Arte from Magnificent Brides were amazing to work with and they did a fantastic job. All of the hairstyles were different but were perfect for each of my bridesmaids and myself. The make-up applications were so great and the pictures of the wedding show just how wonderful everyone looked. I can't say enough about them.” – Stephanie
“Tina did my hair as well as my entire bridal party on my wedding day. She has such an incredible talent that just by looking at someone she knows just the right style for that person. I have gone to her for years and she had done my hair for a number of weddings that I was in before my own and each time she did it I felt beautiful. Looking back at my pictures and my video from my wedding it makes me want to do it all over again because of what a perfect job she did. She is highly recommended!” – Josephine Skiba
“I looked flawless in every picture through hours of dancing at the wedding thanks to Cathy from Magnificent Brides. You can't beat that, especially when your hair stylist also happens to be super nice, attentive and really takes pride in her work!” – Julie
Tina and Desi did an excellent job on my bridal party's hair on the day of my wedding! Tina worked on 10 girls' hairstyles and Desi worked with 5 ladies to ensure that each one of us looked great and were happy with their lovely creations. They listened to each girls' requests and created them with energy and efficiency! All of our hairstyles lastly beautifully for the remainder of our special day. I would highly recommend Tina and her team to anyone! -Amanda
I used Tina for my wedding and she was fantastic! She was easy to contact and quick to respond to emails. We did a trial at her studio first and I loved it. She took pictures and wrote everything down so she was able to do it again. She told me how long I would need to keep my hair to put it up. The day of the wedding, she was professional, timely, and did a wonderful job with all my bridesmaids and my hair. I have very thick hair and she was able to do it how I wanted and it lasted all night. I highly recommend Tina she was great to work with! -Jana
Tina recommended Arte with Magnificent Brides for my wedding since Tina was booked. Arte was extremely talented, time efficient and very professional! My pictures look amazing and I cannot thank Tina enough for coordinating the perfect artist for me and my girls
