I was going to use my own hair salon for my hair on my wedding day, but they didn't allow makeup people to come to the salon (always check this, don't assume!), and everything was going to take a long time since I had a big wedding party. I wanted my bridesmaids to be comfortable if they had to wait. Luckily, I found Style Retaliation! Ali Thuente and her helpful stylists come to YOU in your home (or in my case, the home of one of my bridesmaids) and do both hair and makeup. I thought they did a terrific job -- I was very pleased with both my hair and makeup, which held all day and looked beautiful -- and we could relax/have breakfast and mimosas when we weren't being styled. I have short hair, and I went with a 30s glamour look with both my hair and makeup -- Ali knew exactly what I was going for and did a fantastic job.

Ali did an amazing job with every aspect of the wedding hair and makeup for me, my mom and mother-in-law and all of the bridesmaids. Ali and two assistants somehow managed to stay on schedule while turning my entire wedding party and myself into our most beautiful selves. Ali was professional, kind and talented in every aspect of her involvement with my wedding and I would recommend her to anyone. I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day and it was Ali who helped me achieve my romantic and vintage vision. Style Retaliation is a must!

Ali did my makeup for my wedding and three up dos for bridesmaids ~ makeup was flawless and held up all day in 95 degrees with humidity! The girls hair was beautiful too and we all loved the results. Not only did she do great work but she arrived early and was extremely organized with everything leading up to the wedding day. I will definitely recommend her to anyone for hair and makeup!

Ali and Krysta did a great job doing the hair and makeup for the whole wedding party plus hair for the flower girl and makeup for my Grandma. As the bride I let the bridesmaids decide how they wanted their hair and makeup done. Ali and Krysta made everyone feel beautiful and confident. They did a great job at keeping everyone (5 year old flower girl to 95 year old Grandma) relaxed.Thank you so much for making my special day that much more special!

I recently had Ali do myself and part of my bridal party's make up! She was absolutely AMAZING. She was super flexible with timing, and very affordable. She was great with my bridal party, my mother, and my mother in law. My make up was absolutely stunning, and I felt like my make up lasted the entire day/night. I would recommend Ali to anyone!

Ali and her team are absolutely the best! She is so easy to work with and made me, my bridesmaids, and both mothers look amazing but still natural. From the minute I first spoke too Ali I could tell that she was passionate about what she did and was accommodating. Not only is Ali beyond talented and creative she is also an extremely kind and caring person. She makes everyone in her chair feel so comfortable and will not stop until they are happy with their look. I looked into a lot of hair and makeup artists for my wedding and Ali is the best and much more reasonably priced than others. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Ali and her team are amazing! Besides being incredibly fun to chat with and so talented, it was so nice to see that she actually cared about my wellbeing. From amazing pre-wedding advice, to really taking the time to make me comfortable, look and feel amazing, I really feel that Ali is the best of the best. She ended up doing my hair for my wedding this past May. She was more than accommodating with my crazy schedule AND even fit me in for another trial run the week before my wedding. I will add, the first hair style was beautiful and I loved it, my mom on the other-hand.... LOL Brides, we have all been there at some point! Regardless of momma drama, Ali saved the day! My hair was BEAUTIFUL and my bridesmaids that made the choice to have theirs done was beautiful, too! Everyone felt fabulous and everyone looked stunning. Please look no further than Ali and Style Retaliation, her warmth, patience, and kindness is really what a stressed out (or not stressed out, lucky lady) bride-to-be needs while she is watching her dream hair style unfold in front of her.

Ali did an amazing job! She was so great to work with, and I felt beautiful! She came to my wedding venue, which was an old farmhouse mansion, and it was so relaxing to get my hair and makeup done and sip mimosas in the getting ready room. I felt like a princess! She was reasonably priced and is very talented with both hair and makeup! I highly recommend her!

The day was a dream thanks to Ali. She came right to the church completely equipped with everything you could think of. The day was wonderful and relaxed, and the make up beautiful. She also did my hair, which held all day long no problems. I will definitely be telling anyone who asks, you can depend on Ali 100% to make the day perfect.
