This is my story of how I found Heidi and how great my hair turned out. Long story short, I was supposed to go with the bride to her “hair person” but then the “hair person” was complaining of how many people wanted their hair done. I took it upon myself to find someone else who would enjoy fixing/doing my hair. I found Heidi on http://Yelp.com, which I use for new places to go to and find reviews. Heidi is super nice and sweet and willing to listen to what you want. My hair was perfect…I really mean perfect. I got compliments all night long on my hair and people were asking where I got my hair done. I felt like a million bucks and my makeup done by MAC…I was the hottest bridesmaid. LOL My hair/curls stayed in all night and I was dancing like a rock star. She has great prices and flexible.
In addition, she did the flower girl hair also! REALLY ADORABLE! The girl is 5 years old and the hair was intact all night 🙂
I can’t wait to get married this year, so Heidi can do my hair! – Nineveh S., 4/28/2009
After a super yucky, impersonal, overpriced, experience at La Belle in Palo Alto, I came running to Heidi only two weeks before my July 10 2009 wedding. Heidi stepped up like a champ. I came with the same messy jumble of 48 pictures that I took to La Belle, and Heidi did something way better. An updo that was far more organic and playful, like I’d asked. See here (http://blog.loicphoto…. i’m the bride)
My finicky bridesmaids couldn’t decide until the last minute if they did or did not want their hair done, and Heidi accommodated the last minute schedule changes.
And best of all, she was so calm and pleasant on the day of. The last thing you need is extra stress. She snuck in on-time, set up her station, did her thing and silently stepped out.
Heidi is your new hair best friend. I promise. – 10/9/2009
I found Heidi on [yelp] and am so GRATEFUL! She did a fabulous job with my hair for my wedding. It was indian wedding which required a fairly heavy see-through veil, and she managed to do a beautiful updo. It was great having her travel to where I or my sisters were…made the wedding day process convenient. See the pictures for yourself! – Asra G., 1/6/2008
After a bad experience with my first trial run, I was nervous about finding someone to do my hair for my wedding. To make it worse, I live out of state, and would only be flying in three days before the wedding. I found Heidi on Yelp and decided to give her a try. She was able to fit me in with only a few weeks notice, and we were able to do a try run at the salon she works at. I was pretty happy with the trail, but decided I wanted my hair half-up/ half-down for the actual wedding. On the day of the wedding she came to my house and curled my hair, pinning half of it up. It looked great! She also did my sisters hair. She was fun to work with and professional. And much more reasonably priced than other people offering to do wedding hair. The only thing she lacks is a good website! – Karen M., 7/11/2009
Heidi did a great job for my wedding hair! She was on-time, prepared and did not rush at all! She finished the style within an hour and half and waited until I put my wedding dress on to take a final look at my hair before she left; she had to make sure everything was in place/ perfect! I was so happy with the turn-out; the style lasted the entire day. Heidi is very professional, genuinely nice, and amazingly creative! Thanks Heidi! – Christina M., 8/27/2008
Heidi did my hair for my wedding. She met me for a trial run and I was totally disorganized. I had some ideas and some pictures of what I wanted. But I had no idea how I wanted the end product to look like. Heidi asked me questions while she was doing my hair. Each strand of hair was getting placed per my instruction based on what I like and what I didn’t like about what she was doing. We ended up with the perfect style for me. Then we put my birdcage veil on. I was pleased.
By the time my wedding rolled around, I had changes to my veil position. Heidi adeptly made my changes. Also at the last minute I needed Heidi to style the hair of three more girls. In a little over two hours, she did my hair, all three of my bridesmaids, and two cousins. She was fast and on time at 5:30 AM. The girls were picky and needed her to make style adjustments while she was doing other girls styles. She worked competently and didn’t get frazzled even though we held her over time and she needed to leave.
I had a birdcage veil that I wanted to remove at the reception. We were all afraid my custom curls would collapse by the time reception rolled around 12 hours later. That didn’t happen. My hair was as fresh as if Heidi was touching me up all day. Not one curl was out of place. Not one curl collapsed.
Heidi is super sweet and great to work with. – Jen O., 4/12/2009
I highly recommend Heidi if you are looking for a wedding day stylist in South Bay. She is an excellent stylist who is also very professional and easy to work with. She did the hair for both myself and my Maid of Honor. We were both extremely happy with how our locks looked! Amazingly, they still looked good hours later, even after enduring an entirely outdoor wedding. Not only did she do a great job, she came to us (very convenient) and was super prompt. I highly recommend her if you are looking for somebody awesome to do your hair. – Daisy G., 9/11/2008
Heidi did a fantastic job! She was early, fast and fun to work with. She did hair for my wedding, 3 bridesmaids, 1 flower girl and my mom. We all looked fantastic and our hair held up through the night! I would definitely recommend her services! – Tara C., 10/29/2008
Heidi did a great job for my bridal party wedding hair. She did hair for me, my 3 bridesmaids, my mom, mother-in-law and a little girl. Everyone loved their hair and we got so many compliments throughout the day. Hair stayed perfectly for 15 hours. Heidi showed up in my hotel room on time when everyone was still sleeping ;-), she made sure we had enough time to get ready. She helped us with our hair accessories and showed my bridesmaid how to put the veil and take it off. Her price is very reasonable and she charges low travel fees. She’s very professional, kind and a good listener. I would recommend her to any bride. – Jen C., 9/15/2008
I would definitely recommend Heidi for all your wedding day hair needs. Heidi gave me a wonderful hairstyle for my wedding that my husband abosulutely loved and still talks about today! My hair stayed put together all night and my wedding and reception were outside! I loved my hair so much that I had Heidi cut my hair the next week, which was also fabulous! – Rebecca E., 7/5/2008
Heidi just did my wedding hair and it was wonderful. She was extremely professional, showed up on time, and was very accommodating to two other ladies who decided to get their hair done last minute. All of my bridesmaids and I looked beautiful and the hair stayed all night! I was so happy, the next day I had her cut off all my hair that I’d been growing out for the wedding and the new cut is very cute! – Alexis I., 9/28/2008
Heidi drove all the way from West San Jose to Fremont to do my hair and my maid of honor’s hair for my wedding.
My hair does not hold curl in the bay area. No amount of gel, mouse, or hairspray – no curling iron, hot rollers, or overnight cold curlers have ever gotten my hair to curl. The first half of my hair always fell completely flat by the time I finished curling the second half. I thought I was going to just have to deal with limp, ultra straight hair for the wedding. Heidi worked miracles. My hair had body, style, and unbelievable curl.
My maid-of-honor has so much hair that it takes 1.5 hours to blow dry even after she pays someone a lot of money to thin it. She just has massive amounts of hair. She can curl it or she can iron it and it always looks good. However, Heidi did things to her hair I did not think possible without synthetic hair pieces. You have to see it to believe it. – Kat, 8/6/2008
I was the photographer at a wedding Heidi did hair for on August 20th, 2010. Heidi was sharp on time – 7am (early start!). She came on location, fully equipped for 4 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls and the bride. She was to be done by 10:30, which I thought was a feat by herself.
Heidi was great in giving advice on the type of hairdo that would flatter the bridesmaids best. She listened very carefully as each bridesmaid explained what they liked about photos they’d seen, an changes they wanted to make as she went along. I was amazed at the fact that most of the bridesmaid were researching the hairdos the morning of, and that Heidi was able to pull it off on the spot. She was super ready and a very good listener.
The bride had short hair, which I would imagine would be a challenge, but she managed to change her look and give it that romantic and stylish feel that suited her dress.
Altogether in just 3.5 hours, she pulled off some long curls on the 2 flowers girls, some side buns and curled updos on the 4 bridesmaids (each was different), and a wavy / curled do for the bride, which makes for the whole gamut of hair you can see on 7 people, all while smiling. Very impressive.
