Reviews and Pricing for Wedding Makeup Artist Michele Renee The Studio

Michele Renee The Studio

We are an on-location hair and makeup studio whose goal is to make you look and feel your kind of beautiful.


Our Wedding Style Is:

The most important style is our bride’s style! Every bride has envisioned the perfect look for their wedding day, whether it’s looking like a princess, classic and romantic, modern glam, or oozing sex appeal. Before their big day, we have our brides send over inspiration pictures so they can visually communicate their ideal look to us.  So on the wedding day, we can create the fairytale look of their dreams. Regardless of their overall style choice, we always want them to feel and look their absolute best.

Our Personality Is:

We have a team of artists, each with varying styles, personalities, and energy levels. Our aim is to always try to match a bride’s personality to that of her artist’s. If a bride is vivacious and fun, we will pair her with one of our girls who is outgoing and fun so they can have an enjoyable experience with her and her bridal party.  If a bride has a calm energy, we will ensure that the artist we pair her with has a soothing aura. If a bride is “type-A” we want an artist who understands and appreciates every attention to detail. Hair and makeup are the first events of the day and it sets the tone for the remainder of the day, so it is important that our brides “getting ready” experience runs smoothly and is worry-free.

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

I grew up in a house full of women who loved hair and makeup. When we all got ready together it was such a bonding and fun experience. The getting ready part was almost as fun as the event we were going to! (Almost!)

I wanted to bring this experience to Brides and their Bridal Party. Why stress out running to the salon or makeup counter when we can bring the Studio to you!

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

Every woman is beautiful but sometimes women can lose sight of themselves! (Especially on stressful wedding days!) Our artists love to be a part of bringing beauty from the inside out.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We are known for our Hollywood waves and glam updos.

One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:

That I am not Indian! I work so many Indian weddings, celebrate Indian holidays, have many Indian best friends, watch Bollywood movies, drink chai…. that people are surprised that I am Mexican-American (Chicana) – BUT MY HEART IS INDIAN! (Does that count?)

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

I am passionate about helping children in some form or another. I would love to foster or create a charity to help children.

Our Pricing:

To serve our brides better we have three different levels and price points. Everyone deserves VIP treatment on their special day no matter what their budget is!

Bridal hair and makeup range from $165- $295

Wedding party hair and makeup range from $115- $175

Classic Hollywood.

Michele Renee The Studio was extremely accommodating to our group on such short notice. Because we got married during another Covid outbreak, we experienced a lot of stress as we received last-minute RSVP changes and Covid scares with close family members. Michelle Renee and her team remained in touch throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding to ensure us that they would make whatever arrangements necessary to be present on our day given the Covid uncer

I wanted to look and feel like myself but with a bit of old Hollywood glam.

Michele of Michele Renee The Studio knew what I was going for and nailed my look on the first try during my trial. I chose airbrush makeup to ensure it would last all day, and I added some extensions for length and fullness for my hair.

One of my bridesmaids had used Michele Renee The Studio five years ago for her wedding and raved about her experience. They were very responsive and flexible with scheduling trials, engagement party makeup, etc. They went out of their way to come to my house for everything which was so nice.

I wanted to look natural but feel beautiful. Hair and makeup were the toughest for me to picture ahead of time.

Michele Renee The Studio was very professional and nice. I used Pinterest pictures to show what I wanted and Darlene, my stylist, did such a beautiful job. I really loved that she gave her honest opinions on different types of makeup and what would look best. My wedding party absolutely loved their hair and makeup too!

I wanted to look beautiful with a romantic kind of natural feel—enhanced natural beauty.

I actually worked with Michele Renee in the early years of her business, so I knew how beautiful her work was. I will say that using her was even more impressive than I expected. She made sure that I not only looked fabulous, but she made sure I felt fabulous. She took a lot of time on the trial run to be sure the look I envisioned would be achieved.

Michele Renee made sure we found the right kind of hair extensions, special eye patches and that my maid of honor and mom looked flawless.

I had a Glam [Bachelorette] Party at Michele Rene The Studio’s salon, Ginger Snips, in Seminole Heights. It was so much fun and an alternative to bar hopping. A few girlfriends got to come out and feel pampered with glamour services, custom drinks, games, tacos, and a piñata. My Maid-of-Honor and Michele Renee set up the beautiful sparkly background with pretty pink tables and balloons!

My beauty look was inspired by photos I found on Pinterest. I wanted to keep it simple and look like myself (just a really good version of myself). I decided to work with Michele Renee the Studio based on my planner's recommendation and their availability on our wedding day. I also really liked their portfolio and knew they would do a great job for our wedding.
