I spend the most time looking for vendors on the hair and makeup stylist. I seriously scoured websites for MONTHS. It was a large expense and I wanted it perfect. I looked over One Bridal Co. as one of the first vendors but was weary because the price was rather high. I later decided to do a trial for the wedding (1/12/13) and I completely changed my mind. Ami did my hair and makeup on both days (the trial and the wedding) and it couldn't have been more perfect. She listened to what I wanted and was open for my opinion. At the trial I decided that I wanted to do a half-up do for the ceremony and put it all up for the reception. Since they were at the same place (Hotel Baker in St. Charles, a few block from the salon) Ami offered to come to the hotel and put it up for me. I was planning on having one of my bridesmaids do it but this was much better. She came exactly on time when I needed her and put it up in a perfect style. I could not have been happier. There are a few aspect of a wedding that are worth the expense and your hair and makeup should be one of them. They are completely worth every cent. I had such a great experience.

My bridal party, mom, and I loved everything about One Bridal Co.! Ami and her team were so great to work with for my May wedding! The team stuck to a schedule to get all 7 of us done on time, and we actually were done earlier than anticipated which took a lot of stress away from the day! We were all relaxed and had a blast getting beautified and pampered! The airbrush makeup is so worth it and felt light all day/night! Ami and I had a blast during the trial coming up with a modern side do that received so many compliments all night! Thank you for making us even more beautiful!!!

I absolutely loved working with Ami and her team!!! I knew after Ami did my hair and makeup trial she was the perfect person to work with on my wedding day! She did hair and airbrush makeup for my entire bridal party, we all looked amazing and had the BEST time hanging out before the ceremony. I highly reccomend Ami and her team for gorgeous hair and makeup and worry free service - they are amazing!

One Bridal was a great choice from the limited salons that would come out to me the morning of my wedding. I loved their hair and makeup job. (Highly recommend their air brush and fake lashes!)It looked natural but gorgeous. Only reason I did not LOVE them was the price. I felt they were very expensive, charging me $90 for a trial hair/makeup, then $100 for bride hair and all the bridesmaids $80 each. Plus a bit extra for the travel. Originally they assured me they would send me three girls out to do hair for me, 5 bridesmaids, and 4 moms/grandmas/etc. as well as my makeup. However, I panicked a little when only two showed up! They assured me we would get it all done in time, but I was nervous. We were rushed, but managed to get it all done in 4 hours. I just wish the added stress was not a part of my morning! I would have loved more time to relax with my girls, but I can't complain about the finished product. Everyone looked spectacular!

The ladies at One Salon are the BEST!! They go with exactly what you are looking for and make it even better! I would recommend them hands down to any bridal party. I liked them so much that I will be coming to get my haircut from them as well :)

I have been going to One Salon for a very long time to get my hair colored and cut. Prior to getting married, I only had incredible things to say about everyone who worked here. If a color didn't come out exactly perfect, they would spend extra time fixing it to make sure I liked it. I had my hair done here for every homecoming, prom, and event through high school and college. Naturally, when I started planning my wedding, I knew I had to reach out to One Bridal Company (owned by One Salon) for my hair and makeup for the day of. The problem was that I was having a destination wedding in San Diego. However, One Bridal Company (Ami and Katie) had absolutely no hesitation in traveling to San Diego and helping make my day special by doing my bridesmaids, mothers, and my hair and makeup. Not only are the stylists extremely talented, but they add excitement, comfort, and laughter to any environment, which really helped on my wedding day! They traveled with all of the best tools and makeup. Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous and they followed their hair and makeup schedule precisely to make sure everyone was beautiful and ready on time. I can not thank One Bridal Company enough for making my wedding, and the months before so amazing, easy, and carefree. Before my wedding, I went in for my hair trial and thought I wanted to go with an up-do. Ami created the exact hair style that I wanted (I brought a picture to show her), and it looked stunning. The team suggested I take pictures at every angle to make sure I knew how it looked all around. This is when I realized I wanted to go a different style, I thought the up-do was too formal for my dress. The Bridal Company had absolutely no qualms about it. They insisted I do another trial, to ensure I would be the happiest I could be on my wedding day. We nailed it the second trial, which made me ecstatic about the upcoming festivities. One Bridal Company exudes professionalism, talent, and personality. They made my wedding day timely, helped around the bridal suite, and made sure I was at ease with everyone and everything about me. You can tell they have worked many weddings before because they were even able to handle different situations, without me even knowing they were happening. Thank you thank you thank you a million times and more for making me look and feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. My bridesmaids looked stunning, the mothers looked gorgeous, and I couldn't have been more blessed to have had such an amazing company helping and watching out for me. Thank you for making everything a breeze. I love this salon!

Katie did my hair and make-up for my wedding, and I could not have been happier. After my trial I had a few things I wasn't sure about, and she listened to my concerns and came to my wedding day with ideas about how to make the changes. The hair ended up being perfect!! Both my sister and I were so happy with our hair and make-up. I felt beautiful, and I have never seen my sister look more gorgeous! Katie had a very sweet personality and was very calming on what can be a stressful day. The services are a bit expensive, but the convenience of having Katie on-site, and her beautiful work were worth it if you can fit it in your budget.

I used One Bridal Company for my wedding on August 2nd 2013. I was referred to Ami, the owner, by my wedding coordinator. I called and spoke with Ami to schedule a trial. She was very accomodating with my schedule. I'm a little OCD, so I had sent her pictures of hair and makeup styles I wanted. During the trial, we went through the pictures and asked me specifically what I liked about each one. I had tons of fun getting to know her and she nailed the looked I wanted on the first try. I gave her a deposit that same day for the wedding.
On my wedding day, Ami and an assistant stylist were on time and ready to go. They got to work right away on the moms, aunts, and bridesmaids. Ami did my hair and makeup and spent tons of time making sure everything was just right. the best part is Ami came back right before the reception and styled my hair a different way that I thought would be easier for me to dance in. I loved everything they did and I would recommend them to anyone.

This review should be the easiest I have had to write yet somehow I am at a loss for words to adequately explain how phenomenal Ami's talents are. From the first initial consultation to the time we said goodbye on my wedding day I felt comfortable and confident in her services. She listened to my desires and made changes to meet the goals as needed. On the morning of my wedding she made me feel so relaxed. The bridal hair was perfect and makeup was flawless. Hair/make up is not something I take lightly in my everyday life and had thoroughly done my research for bridal services prior to meeting Ami--once we chatted, it was a done decision. I highly recommend Ami Christiansen for bridal beauty services.

This company is so perfect! They come to you on your wedding day! No worrying about anything besides having your hair dry and a little moisturizer on your face!
The come to your suite or your house wherever you are getting ready!
These girls are amazing! They ask what you want or what you are expecting what you want to look like.
I am the bride and I don't think I've ever looked more beautiful than Christy made me on my wedding day, plus 3 other women who did all of my bridesmaids, my mother, grandmother, Aunt. A ton of people! They kept to the timeline and when I needed to be ready and got it done.
We all got false eyelashes! Had all our makeup airbrushed and it stayed all day! I looked just as good at 2am as I did at 10am when they did it for me!
They are really personal and fun to talk too, they made my morning on my special day extra special.
They even gave me my lip gloss so I could reapply all day long! So sweet!
If you are thinking about using a service like this for your big day, I would recommend One Bridal hands down!
Thank you for everything!!!! SO glad I found you on theknot.com

Tanisha and Katy are fabulous artists! I am so happy that they were part of my wedding day. They came early with pleasant smiles on and a peaceful ambiance. I knew we were in good hands. We all loved our makeup and hair as well as our stylists! I highly recommend them.

We had hair and airbrush makeup done for our daughter's wedding by One Salon & Bridal Company. Taisha and her team of Becky and Katie were amazing!! This is a team of true professionals. They arrived to our home early, immediately set up and started working. We were so relaxed that it felt like we were just chatting and having a party. All nine people turned out beautifully. We had so many compliments during the entire day on our hair and makeup. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Taisha, Becky and Katie from One Salon & Bridal Company for your wedding hair and airbrush makeup. As a mother of the bride, I never felt so beautiful as I did on the day of our daughter's wedding. Thank you Taisha and team.

Ami (the owner) and Katie came out to our hotel the morning of my wedding and did my hair / make-up, and hair for all four of my bridesmaids and my flower girls. They were prompt and extremely efficient in keeping us on schedule, and everyone’s hairstyles were exactly what they wanted and looked amazing! I did the airbrush makeup and my hair and make-up stayed put from 10am all the way until we got back to our hotel at 2am, even through 2 hours of pictures in windy downtown Chicago. We all received complements all day on our hairstyles and it was such a relief to be able to trust that my hairstyle and make up would stay put and have one less thing to think about throughout the day. They were both very patient, including with two very young flower girls, and really took the time make sure that we were getting exactly the hairstyle we wanted. I really wanted to wear my hair curled, but my curls always fall flat within a few hours. Ami really went the extra mile to make the hairstyle I wanted work for me and even squeezed me in for a last minute second trial so that I could be sure that the hairstyle was going to work before my wedding day. I highly recommend Ami and her team – they are professional, organized, fun and a true pleasure to work with. They bring the same level of excitement and thorough service to every single wedding, as opposed to making you feel like you’re just another wedding on their calendar, and will make sure that you feel 100% confident with your hair and make-up on your wedding day.

I am so happy we decided to use One Bridal Company for my November 10, 2012 wedding. We had Tai and her team come to the house and do make for me, my six bridesmaids, my mother and one of my grandmothers.
They were so great! Each of the girls had drop dead gorgeous hair and makeup. They all had different styles, but each girl still looked like herself. The airbrushing was such a treat! It feels like you're not wearing makeup at all. None of our makeup smudged or ran all day long! It was great to have one less thing to worry about.
Tai and her team were efficient and did such an amazing job on everyone. We all looked fabulous and felt so pampered!
I would use One Bridal Company again for hair and makeup, and recommend them to any bride wanting to look and feel their best!

Thanks!
