Dear Melissa,

I just wanted to thank you and your team for exceptional service and work. You were incredibly responsive to all of my emails and questions throughout the planning process. Your professionalism, kindness, and attention to details ensured an amazing experience for me, my mother, bridesmaids, and maids of honor.

I also wanted to thank your highly talented staff, Andrea’, Marilu, and Kelly. All of these ladies were a pleasure to work with and exceeded all of our expectations. What Andrea’ did with my hair was more than I could have hoped for. It was absolutely beautiful and I received so many compliments throughout the day and night. Andrea’ is a true artist and I cannot thank her enough for making my wedding day hair dreams come true! She is without a doubt one of the most talented women I have ever met.

Marilu’s make-up work was simply flawless. My mother and bridal party’s make-up was outstanding. She was able to listen to each girl’s ideas and preferences and made each one look nothing short of stunning. My make-up lasted well beyond the after party, which ended around 2am. It was everything I had wanted and more. Marilu was able to create a glamorous look that never looked “overdone”, but rather just brought out my best features. Marilu’s innate sense of artistry and impeccable work are unbelievable.

I will offer nothing less than my highest recommendation for you and your company to family, friends, and other brides-to-be. I cannot thank you for enough for this experience because it made my wedding day the best day anyone could ask for.

Many thanks,
Liz Tomasulo

Latest Reviews!!

The BEST EVER, CHOOSE MELISSA!    posted 1/18/2013(updated 1/18/2013)
My Wedding Date was September 1, 2012. I will start by saying I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to my hair and make up! I'm not easy to please, and I do not usually like the way some else does either for me. That said, I would recommend Melissa & Co to ANYONE & EVERYONE!!! They are absolutely amazing in everyway. Extremely professional, organized, and efficient. Melissa was my favorite vendor to work with!!! I reached out to 8 makeup artists/hair stylists the same time I reached out to Melissa. She responded within hours, via e-mail and phone. Others reached out to me days after, but I decided to try Melissa first because of her professionalism and efficiency. Well, THAT WAS THE BEST CHOICE I COULD HAVE EVER MADE. I did not have the honor of Melissa doing my make up herself, but had Marilu instead, who was JUST AS AMAZING! During my trial, I tried my best to describe to Marilu what I liked and didn't like and she got it PERFECTLY the first shot! She was incredibly friendly and made me feel super comfortable. The day of my wedding, she arrived EARLY (I'm extremely neurotic!), got me, my mom, my 6 bridesmaids and flower girl all ready in perfect time. She was so much fun and laid back, fitting in perfectly with my crazy crew!
My only regret is that I didn't use them for my hair :(
I had already signed a contract before I found Melissa & Co. I saw pictures of their hairstyles that resembeled what I wanted and they were flawless.
I would stop looking for a make up artist/hair stylist AT Melissa!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!! The compliments I received on how natural my make up was were endless. I will be using Melissa for all future events, undoubtedly!
Every girls dreams of being gorgeous on her wedding day. If your that girl, you only want the best, and that's Melissa & Co... THANK YOU MARILU AND MELISSA!!!!!

Fantastic Experience with Melissa and Co.!    posted 12/13/2012
I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Melissa and her staff during my wedding process. I knew nothing about Melissa's company, but contacted her after seeing some of her amazing reviews on this website. I really wanted to find someone who would come to me the morning of my wedding, and I found that most hair stylists and make-up artists didn't do that without charging a ridiculous up-charge. Melissa offered reasonable prices and I was able to see some of her work on her website. I could not be more happy that I decided to use her company for the morning of my wedding. She and her staff were very professional throughout the entire time I worked with them. They were in touch often to ensure that the day ran smoothly and that I was a happy and unstressed bride. They offered trials, and accommodated a large number of bridesmaids. I think that every single person who got their hair and make-up done was thrilled with how it ended up looking. One bridesmaid didn't like her hair initially and the hair stylist offered to change it so that she was happy. In the end, all girls looked absolutely gorgeous! The reviews on this website are true--Melissa and her staff do fantastic work and I would highly recommend her to anyone! I only hope that I can use her again one day :)

TRIAL'D and True    
After being totally overwhelmed at all of the wedding hair vendors listed in North Jersey, I decided to schedule my trial with Melissa D'Aloia & Co. The website and facebook page are awesome and current, which was important to me. Also, Melissa is incredibly quick and responsive! I booked a trial with Tammy and had several styles in mind so I brought in some pictures. Even though I was indecisive about parts of my style, she nailed it! I absolutely LOVED my hairstyle on the first try. Melissa and Tammy are totally talented and best of all, they are positive and awesome-- the people you want around you on your big day! I walked out of my trial appointment super pleased and immediately booked Tammy for my wedding day. I definitely trust Melissa D'Aloia & Co. to make all 9 of us look amazing!!! I can't wait!
