Xochitl’s Yelp Review
“This review is long overdue. I haven’t done any reviews yet for my vendors but I was reminded to do one for Veil of Grace today because they posted some beautiful photos from my wedding on their Instagram and I was reminded of how amazing they were. VOG was a dream vendor right from the very beginning. They were the very first to respond when I reached out to different hair and makeup artists. Sydney was so great to work with! They were totally accommodating when I wanted to schedule my trial on the weekend because my work schedule made it difficult for a weekday trial like most of the other companies insist on. I had Paulina and Sarah for my hair and makeup trial and they were professional, attentive, and good listeners, yet fun and friendly! I absolutely loved my trial. I was nervous about airbrush makeup. I am not a big makeup person and I loved how natural and glowy my skin looked. I also was reluctant to try extensions but Paulina gently showed me how naturally they could improve the overall look. My friends and family loved how I looked after the trial. They all loved how I still looked like myself! A friend suggested that although I loved VOG it’s good to do another trial just to compare. Therefore, I had another hair and makeup trial with another company and although they did my hair well, the makeup was way too heavy and I felt like the makeup artist didn’t listen to me. The final straw was when my husband (fiancé at the time) admitted he didn’t like it at all! I always knew that Veil of Grace was amazing and I was likely going to go with them but that sealed the deal. I’m glad my friend suggested I try a second trial just so I could see the VOG difference even more clearly!

I signed a contract right away and from then on they continued to be a dream to work with. They shipped out my extensions right away so I could use them for an engagement shoot, bridal shower, bachelorette, rehearsal, etc. They seamlessly made us a schedule that worked so well with the photographer, planner, videographer, etc.
The day of the wedding I had Sarah and Paulina from the trial and Magali and Hannah. They were on time, prepared, calm, fun, and accommodating. They dealt with a couple of hiccups with grace-pun intended. I advised everyone to come with clean and dry hair as they requested  but unfortunately someone came with clean, very WET hair and Paulina didn’t complain or fuss-just handled it. One of my bridesmaids is a bit sensitive and not a big makeup person and she felt as the makeup was a little much and Magali was super understanding and fixed it. A few girls had very specific requests or wanted to use one of their products and the artists were super responsive. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful. My grandma, who is in her mid 80’s and never had her makeup done in her entire life, went all out with lashes and everything and she loved it. Magali was super patient with her. The Moms were so happy with their look. They were totally radiant. The bridesmaids were all in love with their glowing skin and bold lashes. Their hair looked wonderful, too. I think Hannah is newer but she did great and I saw her touch up a few of the girls curls who went earlier in the day. Paulina also spruced my husband up with a beard trim and she creatively used Sarah’s tinted brow brush to touch up a little bald spot in his beard. Sarah did my makeup perfectly. It was flawless but I felt like myself. My husband loved it. They all went above and beyond in a calm, professional, yet fun fashion. The looks all photographed beautifully and looked great on camera. Thank you for being so wonderful. From the beginning to the end VOG was a dream to work with.” – Xochitl
