Amanda was outstanding. Not only did she do a beautiful job on my bridesmaids and myself (hair and makeup lasted all day and night - a feat within itself), she understood what look I was going for. She was on time, patient, and helped keep my day relaxed and fun. It felt more like having a girlfriend over to do our hair/mu than it felt like having a vendor there. If she's available for your event, BOOK HER. You won't find a better price or better quality. - Danielle
Amanda at Lasting Look did a great job on my wedding day. My hair and makeup looked beautiful and was exactly what I was picturing! She also did my moms makeup and my MOH's hair and made both look flawless. Amanda was a blast to work with, so fun to have around! Thanks Amanda, hope you enjoyed the champagne :) - Lacie
Amanda was the answer to my makeup & hair prayers! I put all my faith into her abilities since I couldn't schedule a trial run before the date (I'm stationed in Hawaii and couldn't get leave
until 3 days before) - and it was everything I ever hoped to look like on my wedding day.
My make up routine for the past 10 years has been concealer/foundation & eyeliner, and I've never had a clue what to to about eyeshadow since my Asian eyelids have no epicanthic folds... or creases of any kind. The only guidance I gave with hairstyles were photos of different styles I liked and the helplessness of having my hair up in an Army bun everyday.
I have never felt more beautiful than my wedding day. Even though I'm tearing up now just remembering how I felt looking into the mirror afterwards, I luckily didn't have to test just how waterproof her makeup was (which she assured me it was) during that day. I was also surprised at how sturdy she made my hairstyle (a low and off-set updo of curls): I have LONG, curly, uncontrollably frizzy hair and PLENTY of it. The hairdo lasted all ceremony & reception - even with a heavy chapel length veil & after I danced the night away! - Katrina
Amanda did my hair and makeup for both my boudoir shoot and my wedding--both vastly different styles--and she handled both with expertise.
I felt so beautiful. And my hair and makeup lasted all day!
Beyond her abilities, which I place full confidence in, I really appreciated her professionalism. She was never late, she was efficient, and she really made everyone feel comfortable.
As a testimony of how I feel towards her services, I've since gone back to her for a cut and color! Book her--there's a reason why she's gotten the bride's choice award from wedding wire! :) - Sarah
"I could not be more in love with the amazing work that Amanda has done for my wedding party and I. She is such a dream to work with and so much fun to have be a part of my big day. She made me feel more beautiful than I ever have before! I can not count the compliments that I have received. I was not 100% sure on the look I wanted and she was so helpful by collaborating with me to find a look that I was thrilled with. I have and will continue to recommended her services to anybody looking to feel special. She does an amazing job!" -Shauna
"Amanda thank you for everything you did !!! I was extremely pleased with how my make up came out, not only that but you have such a great personality. You are truly talented and very professional, I will defitnetly recommend you to my friends and family. Best wishes to you and your business =D" - Neidy
"My wedding planner, Natalie Good of A Good Affair, recommended Amanda Davison to me for my wedding, and I am so glad she did. Amanda is an AMAZING hair and makeup stylist, not only with what she
produces, but also with her incredible personality and professionalism.
As someone who never gets done up, I was nervous about working with someone I had never met. But, I spoke with Amanda on the phone to get a feel for her work, and I was sold. Her prices were reasonable and she was so knowledgeable about hair, makeup, and brides. I told her that I wanted to try extensions for the first time but had no idea how to go about it. She offered to take me to a store that sells hair extensions and help pick out what I needed. When they didn't have my exact color, she found the best match and put highlights in the extensions so they would match my hair color perfectly.
On our trial meeting, Amanda made me feel so comfortable and listened to exactly what I wanted for my wedding day look. She produced the most beautiful hair and makeup I have ever seen on myself, and I felt like a celebrity. On my wedding day, Amanda showed up to our hotel room perfectly on time with her assistant (who was also amazing), ready to put curls in for the moms and all my bridesmaids. The efficiency and professionalism Amanda and her assistant displayed was incredibly impressive as they prepared 5 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and me to look our very best for my special day.
In addition, Amanda is amazing at working and making decisions on the spot. I decided I wanted my makeup a little more dramatic than what we decided at the trial, and she knew exactly what to do and how to do it to make my desired look happen. My bridesmaids, my mom, my mother-in-law, and I are all so happy with Amanda and thankful for her hard work and patience on my wedding day. I would recommend Amanda and her team to any bride or woman who has a special event they want to look their very best for!" - Chelsea
" My wedding planner recommended Amanda for my wedding hair and makeup and I am so happy she did! Amanda is so so sweet. I was planning my CA wedding from FL and from our first phone conversation I was completely confident working with Amanda. She was always extremely prompt with her emails and you can really tell she cares about her clients and her work. I was a bit nervous because we kept adding people to our final count on the big day, but Amanda was completely accommodating. We had 13 women/girls having hair and makeup done on the morning of my wedding. Amanda and her team showed up at our rental home at the crack of dawn, full of smiles. We had such a fun time with the girls. None of us had done airbrush makeup before but Amanda promised us it would look natural and we couldn't have been happier with the results. It really complemented everyone's natural beauty. My wedding party looked absolutely gorgeous! I didn't have a set idea of what I wanted for our hair, but I loved what she did with the bridesmaids and my hair. We had originally planned to do our hair and makeup ourselves, but now after the fact we are so happy we decided to hire Amanda! Watching my little sister and cousin's reactions to the final results was one of my favorite parts of the day. I had never seen them look so happy and beautiful. Same goes for the Mom's and Grandma's. And me, of course. Yep, I recommend." - Amy
"Amanda was amazing! She did my hair as well as my bridesmaids, mom, and mother-in-law. Everyone looked BEAUTIFUL! She listened to what I wanted for everyone's hairstyle, and she executed it very well. She is very quick to respond to emails, phone calls, and text. She is also my personal hairdresser now, and I always look forward to my hair appointments. To sum it all up, Amanda is fantastic! You will not be disappointed :-)" - Jericka
"I love Amanda! She does excellent work and is so sweet and extremely professional. She did my hair & make-up for a boudoir photo shoot, rehearsal dinner and the wedding day. Amanda was able to work with my needs & specific looks for each event and the needs of my large group on the big day. She did my huge wedding party and family and they looked stunning! Everyone looked and felt amazing!!" - Nicole
" I am so happy my wedding coordinator recommended Amanda. She is the sweetest thing and an amazing hair and make up artist. I love the way my makeup turned out, and she really listened to me when I wanted to make a change in my hairstyle after my trial run. Also, my bridemaids hair was amazing! Amanda came up with a hairstyle that totally went with the Audrey Hepburn-ish style bridesmaid dresses. She was also a total blast to hang out with while we were getting ready on the wedding day." - Lisa
" Amanda was wonderful! She was prompt, worked efficiently in the time provided, relaxed, friendly and enthusiastic, listened to and catered to the bride's and all of the bridesmaid's wishes. The results were phenomenal--everyone felt gorgeous and looked amazing at the ceremony and in pictures!" - Alicia
" Amanda was very professional and confident. I would recommend her services to future brides!
My personal experience was very positive. Amanda did my mother-in-law’s and my hair and makeup. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to wear my hair for my wedding and Amanda had some great ideas. That was one less thing I had to worry about on my special day. My make up looked natural and not at all heavy or caked -on my face. My mother-in-law looked great too!
I totally recommend Amanda’s services!
Thanks Amanda!" - Nancy
" Amanda is fantastic! She is so helpful in helping decide what you should do with your hair. She is always pleasent and smiling and is willing to work with whatever schedule you need to accomadate your day. I use her for my hair cuts and color, keritan treatments and makeup and updos. I would not go to anyone else but Amanda!" - Tiffany
