“I wanted a natural, romantic glam look, something that looked fresh and played up my features without going too heavy. I wanted my hairstyle to be ​romantic and to incorporate a braid to be a little beach-y. Christine and the Femme Akoi team are rockstars! I loved them so much that I started going to their salon in Dunedin for hair cuts and coloring now!​” – Brittany and LJ

“For my wedding day makeup, I wanted to enhance my natural features, with emphasis on my eyes. I definitely did not want to look too made up (i.e. drag queen style). I wear my hair down almost every day, so I felt like mixing it up for the ceremony with a loose updo. To change up the look, after the wedding sunset photos, Femme Akoi stayed later to take my hair from up to down for the party. Femme Akoi was willing to do whatever it took to make me happy. They listened to my requests during the hair and makeup trial and really took those into account on the big day. I felt so beautiful, they did a stellar job!” – Lauren and Joe

“I wanted something that looked clean and natural but something that also stood out and was a bit different! I struggled to put into words exactly what I envisioned for my look for my wedding day, but I did a trial with Femme Akoi and they absolutely nailed it! I was blown away by my final look on my wedding day; they were worth every single penny! They made me feel like a ‘real’ bride, and I was excited to walk down the aisle. Anytime I show people pictures from my wedding, they ask who I had do my hair and makeup because it was that good!” – Jessica and Adam

I knew I wanted an updo for hair and something simple for makeup as I don’t wear a lot of makeup normally.

I hired Femme Akoi Beauty Studio after seeing them on Marry Me Tampa Bay and seeing all their work on Instagram.

I hired Femme Akoi Beauty Studio at the recommendation of our planner, and they were fantastic. I wanted a soft, effortless-looking updo with flowers from the wedding pinned to my hair and a smokey eye and bold lip for makeup,” Andrea detailed. “I am very into makeup and was not afraid to go bold! I was obsessed with my look, and it really stayed together pretty much all night!

I wanted to look like me on my wedding day. I hate when brides are so done up and barely look like themselves. I’m a big believer that makeup and hair should just enhance your looks, not change them.

Femme Akoi Beauty Studio did exactly that. I felt like a better version of myself and was extremely happy looking back at the pictures and not being distracted by anything.

I wanted to choose a hair vendor that could make everyone in my bridal party feel beautiful and who have the experience to do exactly what they envisioned.

I chose Femme Akoi Beauty Studio to do all of the hairstyling for my wedding because of their overall vibe. Their portfolio of wedding experience showed they were versatile with different styles and hair textures. Their service was great! They were so thorough with the time allotted. There was plenty of time for touch-ups, requests, and changes, and at the end of the day, we all felt beautiful. I highly recommend a bridal trial beforehand. I choose to do one and I’m so glad that I did because I was able to be stress-free on my wedding day deciding on what the overall look was going to be prior to and being very happy with the end result.

I wanted to go with neutral soft romantic colors and hairstyles to keep a romantic feminine vibe going. The dresses had embellishments and a lot going on, so I thought that keeping the rest simple but elegant was the way to go.

The team at Femme Akoi Beauty Studio are wonderful experts! They have a large team and can accommodate large parties and work fast and do a great job. I love their hair and make-up style. It's also very diverse and works with skin and hair types. Many of the bridesmaids have had them before. so it was a popular and easy choice for my bridal party.

I do not wear a lot of makeup on the regular. I wanted something simple, but enough to be a little extra for the big day. I love the boho look. That was my inspiration for finding my hairstyle for the day. I love the updo style with braids. I wish I could make my hair look like that all the time.

Femme Akoi Beauty Studio had great reviews, and I was blown away by the pictures I have seen of the weddings they had done. I went for a trial and was blown away by my experience. Ayla did my hair and makeup. I don't wear a lot of makeup, and she answered all my questions and went through step by step what she was doing. She took my inspirational picture and made it personalized towards me. She helped me feel at ease during the hair and makeup process, which was a blessing for me.

I definitely wanted something timeless and classic for my wedding hair and makeup. As a registered nurse, I usually have my hair pulled back and wear minimal makeup so I was very much looking forward to being full glam but also wanted to feel like myself.

Femme Akoi is very active on social media and spotlights many of their real-life brides along with the creativity and talent of the artists. Natalie was my artist, and she made me feel beautiful! She was such a big help with offering suggestions for bridal hair and makeup that aligned with my vision, and she always ensured I was happy and felt my absolute best. Femme Akoi also provided hair and makeup services to all of my bridesmaids and made each one feel special and absolutely beautiful! They were such a delight to work with and made the “glam” process stress-free!

I loved Femme Akoi Beauty Studio’s work from the start, and they made my bridal party and I feel so beautiful on the wedding day. We had a 1:00 p.m. ceremony start time, and Monica and Casey were so professional and efficient so that we were ready with plenty of time. My bridesmaids, my mom, and I all were so pleased with how our hair and makeup turned out and how it lasted all day.

I wanted my hair to be in a simple updo to showcase the illusion back and all the pearl and lace details on my wedding gown. Pinterest definitely helped!

I was a bridesmaid at a friend’s wedding a few years ago, and she used Femme Akoi Beauty Studio. I was so impressed with their work! Grissel and Alex were a dream team! They are true artists! They made me feel comfortable and beautiful.

I wanted my makeup to look elegant and natural. I didn't want it to be overdone. I wanted to look like myself, just the best version of myself. I wanted to hire someone who could hide any imperfections and highlight my best features.

Femme Akoi Beauty Studio was recommended by Marry Me Tampa Bay. I did set up a trial run and was very happy with how my hair and makeup turned out.
