I can’t say enough good things about my correspondence with Sarah and my preview session with LaDonna and Randi! Planning a wedding has proven to be one of the most stressful things I’ve done and all of the women at Lashes and Lace have been a ray of sunshine in the whole process! It is so nice to work with people who are straight forward and want nothing more than to see your big day (or your bridal portraits) go perfectly! Cannot recommend enough! And I can’t wait to see them next Saturday for our wedding!

I just completed my trial run and I couldn’t be more please with LaDonna! She was AMAZING!!!! She spent so much time with me going over hair and make up ideas. I walked in clueless with what I wanted. She was extremely patient with me as we decided various options. She went out of her way to try various hair styles that would look best for my dress, face and makeup. She was so pleasant and upbeat during the whole process. You can tell she LOVES what she does by how excited and enthusiastic she gets over finding the right style for you. Oh, and the BEST part of all -she perfect for a bride that can be somewhat anxious and nervous about looking perfect on their wedding day. She was totally flexible and doesn’t take anything personal. I’m a 100% confident that I chose the best makeup and hair artist for my wedding day.

The Lashes and Lace team (Sarah, LaDonna, Kaia, and Randi) did an absolutely incredible job on me, my mother, MIL, and bridesmaids for my wedding last month. For most brides, talent is the most important quality in a makeup artist, for obvious reasons. You can rest easy with Lashes and Lace, because Sarah is a complete perfectionist. She truly views your face as a blank canvas and puts the time and effort in to make the final product flawless. I was torn between an updo or half­
up/half-down for my wedding hair up until the day before the wedding. LaDonna did both during my trial, but I was having trouble deciding. The day of the wedding, on a whim, I decided to go a totally different direction with my hair and makeup than the trial. Not only were LaDonna and Sarah totally calm when I was asking for a major change, they NAILED the look I was aiming for. After I was
“made up,” and put on my wedding dress, I looked into the mirror and was immediately brought to tears. I have never felt so truly beautiful, and that’s all you can ask for on your wedding day. In addition, every single one of my bridesmaids looked stunning, and I’ve never seen my mom and mother-in-law look so flawless. I can’t express the talent and detail that each of these women put into their work. I have a unique perspective in that, not only have I been in a ton of weddings in which professionals did my hair and makeup, I also had another trial for my wedding a few months back with a different company. After my previous trial, I was turned off by the ambivalence of the artists and the “been there, done that” sort of attitude. L&L is so different-you are not “just another client” to them; you are representative of their portfolio of work, and they treat you as such. If there’s any doubt in your mind about who to choose for your big day, seriously- Lashes and Lace is the best. I would recommend them to anyone. They can truly do it all.

These women are the best! I couldn’t he more excited to have Lashes and Lace taking care of my whole wedding party’s hair and make-up next week! After meeting Randi and LaDonna at my preview session and talking with Sarah, I’m so confident that out of all of the vendors, they have been and wilt he the most reliable and pleasant to work with! I want to schedule more events in my Life, just to be able to have them do my hair and makeup! Can’t wait to see you next week!! Thank you!

-Megan 

LaDonna was more than helpful with everything on my wedding day. She did hair and makeup for myself and two of my bridesmaids (one of which now wants to use her for her own upcoming wedding). All of our hair and makeup turned out amazing and I have nothing but good things to say. It was drizzly on the day of my wedding and prior to the ceremony during pictures my hair got a little messed up from the rain. LaDonna fixed my hair and made it to where it didn’t move during our rainy ceremony!! If I ever have an event that I need to look fabulous, I will call LaDonna! On another note Sarah helped schedule everything for me. She was so courteous, responded quickly, and made me feel important as both a client and a bride. I would highly recommend Lashes and Lace to anyone that wants to look and feel amazing.

I got married in March after a short (4 months) engagement. Since we didn’t have much time to plan, it was a daunting task to find reputable vendors that we could trust AND book for our date. I read about Lashes & Lace on a popular wedding blog and was immediately intrigued. I submitted an inquiry via their website, and the owner, Sarah, responded promptly. Sarah was incredibly helpful, informative, and supportive. She worked with my then fiancee and I to create a test run and day of package that worked perfectly for us. She was also very careful to accommodate our wish not to see each other between our sessions. Our stylist was LaDonna. She was an absolute joy! My wife does not typically wear makeup, and was very unsure of what she wanted. LaDonna was very patient and helpful in guiding her to a look that allowed my wife to feel both confident and like herself. I had more ideas of what I wanted, but most of my inspiration images did not mesh well together. LaDonna worked with me to create a makeup look and hairstyle that somehow incorporated all of my inspiration images and “feelings.” I could not be happier. I felt absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day, and received tons of compliments on my hair and makeup. I would not hesitate to recommend Lashes & Lace, and La Donna for any of your hair and/or makeup needs.

I Just had my hair and makeup trial session with Sarah and LaDonna. They did an AP1AINq job. They created the took I had in mind perfectly and were wonderful company as I sat in their chair of magic. Not only are the artists amazing at what they do but Sarah has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She responds quickly, is flexible and ensures you have everything you need to feet organized. Much appreciated as a stressed out bride. Thank you Lashes and Lace for a wonderful experience so far! I can’t to see the complete took on wedding day and aLL of the amazing things they wilt create for my bridesmaids.

-Danielle 

La Donna did my hair and makeup on one of the most important days of my life. She made me feel like a princess. I highly recommend her. Excellent Make Up Artist, Stylist, and wonderful person.

-Angela 

I was extremely fortunate to have LaDonna Stein do hair and makeup for my bridal portraits and my wedding. She completely exceeded any expectations I had. She was extremely professional and had an innate sense for figuring out exactly what it was I had in mind for my own hair and makeup and for my bridesmaids. She followed through and made certain that every detail was taken care of. She was also a complete joy to be around and made me feel at ease. I could not have asked for a better hair and makeup artist!

-Katrin 

La Donna Stein is one of the best makeup artists I have ever worked with. She not only is intuitive to your needs but also makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! I have never worked with someone so willing to try anything but also willing to give you her opinion. She is always on time, works efficiently, and makes sure you are thrilled with her work. LaDonna is the makeup artist I recommend to everyone!

-Megan 

Amazing!! LaDonna and Randi are adorable! <3 I met with them for my MUAH trial last week. They were so helpful and super accommodating to make sure I received the end result I was looking for. Cannot wait for the wedding. 🙂

-Tara 

I was so happy to have booked with Lashes & Lace and LaDonna made me look even better than I had imagined. She was so sweet and helpful and it was just overall an amazing experience.

-User5492279 

I have very, very long hair and LaDonna was super excited to work with it- resulting in me getting exactly what I wanted for my hair: something with braids that still looks sleek and not too romantic. I liked the final product so much, I even changed my mind on using a comb I had already purchased for the wedding day and will replace it with smaller individual hair pins that show off the intricacy of the hair design. She will absolutely take time to think through your ideas with you and knows how to create a look that is not just what you asked for, but also flattering to your individual appearance.

-Anna

 

I felt so privileged to have had Ladonna as my hair and make up artist for my wedding day! She, along with Sarah of Lashes and Lace made the entire process so easy for me, and I had confidence from the start that I had made the right decision. The professionalism, precision, and most importantly, the end result were top notch! I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life.
La Donna is a true artist in every way and is such a sweet person to be around as well. Ladies, if you want to achieve the look of your dreams for your wedding day, or any other occasion, LaDonna will exceed your hopes in creating exactly the look you desire!

-Andrea 

The best investment I made for my whole wedding was hiring Lashes & Lace to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. Sarah was so sweet and positive from the first time I contacted her and LaDonna is amazing at hair and makeup. LaDonna went above and beyond on my wedding day because as I sat in her chair stressing and crying she calmed me and made me laugh (and encouraged some champagne). I have never felt so beautiful I’m happy it was on my big day, my now husband was very blown away not to mention my sister couldn’t look at me without crying! I am so lucky to have found Lashes & Lace because I can look back at my wedding day pictures and know how amazing I felt and how beautiful it was. I have a ton of wedding advice to give after the big day, as does ever other newly wed, the first thing I tell everyone is to hire Lashes & Lace!!!! I wish I could upload a picture, not to toot my own horn ;), to show how amazing LaDonna did!

-Casey

I reached out to Lashes and Lace back in late September for my wedding makeup and hair. I new after one conversation with Sarah Downs that I needed to book with them. Sarah was very prompt at answering my questions, polite, professional and gave me a fair price. She selected for LaDonna to be my makeup and hair artist. I met with LaDonna to do a trial run for my wedding makeup and hair on December 15th. LaDonna took the time to review the questionnaire I submitted pertaining to my vision prior to us meeting. She has a wonderful personality, took her time and most of all surpassed all my expectations. I highly recommend using LaDonna for your special event you may have coming up!!

-Jessica 

Impossibly grateful for LaDonna, who transformed my hair and face last week for a 2 day speaking engagement!! 8,000 live audience members, global live internet streaming AND three jumboscreens had nothing on her ability to make me feel beautiful inside and out. Never-mind the 4:20 am call times we had two days in a row. Thank you from the bottom of my heart LaDonna for all you did for me. I so hope to travel to Dallas and see you again!! And thank you too, Sarah, for your professionalism and ease of working with. WONDERFUL COMPANY!!

-Megan 

Lashes and Lace was one of my favorite vendors for my wedding. LaDonna and Tiinia did the hair and makeup for me and my female relatives, and they were both fantastic. I showed La Donna a magazine photo as the inspiration for my hair and makeup look, and she made me look EXACTLY like the photo. I was thrilled! Tiinia did the hair for my sisters and mom and was very receptive to their comments and opinions and worked with them to make sure they were happy with their looks. Had a great experience the day of, they were very organized and knew what they were supposed to be doing at all times, and even when we were running a bit late in the middle of getting ready, they made up the time without sacrificing quality to make sure everyone was ready on time. Cannot recommend this service enough!

-Mili 

LaDonna really reminds us laypersons that hair and make-up is an art. My experience was all around wonderful.I had a wedding dress that felt like it was rather over the top; however, I actually received comments on my hair from every single female at the wedding. My hair was so wonderful, I wish I could have had more time to myself just to stare at it in the mirror. I have not gotten the professional photos from our photographer, but I can tell even from the low-res ones I have seen so far from friends and family that the make-up made my face look really “fresh”- for lack of a better word. She made my skin look great – like I had been getting plenty of water and sleep for a month prior (neither of these really happened) and the finish of the make-up was flawless until the end of night. LaDonna also did hair and make­up on my mom; my mother visited from Germany and does not speak English fluently, but she told me that she just instantly trusted La Donna and her ability to make her look great. The atmosphere she created was very relaxed and friendly which was very important to me.

-Willanna 

I had a great experience with Randi and LaDonna on my wedding day! They were prompt and efficient, and of course did a wonderful job. They are both very skilled and I was very pleased with my wedding make up & hair. Even though my hair was not the same as in my trial run, it was still beautiful. Ladonna quickly adapted when I wanted to amp up my look from our last session. All around very impressed and would recommended them to anyone!

-Jessica 

This was one of my very best wedding choices, hands down. Sarah and LaDonna were absolutely fabulous to work with, and nine months later I’m still hearing compliments about our hair and make up. I love them, appreciate these super rad ladies, and am so happy to have chosen Lashes & Lace for our wedding.

-Kestrel 

LaDonna is truly an artist, and is such a fun person. She and Meredith were so great to have with us on our big day. I was skeptical about how long they needed to make us all pretty, but I was so glad they set the schedule they did, because it made our day-of SO much less stressful and avoided (most of) the chaos in the hour before the ceremony. And definitely do a trial run for the bride – it’s good to know exactly how you’ll look to avoid those nightmares leading up to the wedding!

-Maureen 

LaDonna made me feel gorgeous for my pageant this past weekend. Lashes and Lace is such a great business, and I felt like a priority every time I spoke with them. My schedule was a little hectic and unorganized, but they were able to work around it to ensure that I looked my best! I cannot speak highly enough of their professionalism, and kindness in a high stress situation like pageant day! LaDonna’s calming and encouraging words made me feel so at ease. She gave her honest opinion when I wasn’t completely sure of what I wanted- and that is worth it’s weight in gold! I felt like I was being taken care of by a friend, and not just someone hired for a service. I will definitely be using them again!

-Jenna

If you are looking to have your hair BEAUTIFULLY styled and have your make-up look like that of a celebrity then look no further! I was absolutely blown away with the incredible job that Sarah and La Donna did for my wedding! Not to mention, they were incredibly flexible and understanding when I had to reschedule my trial run on rainy days (as I wanted to do my trial run on the same day as my bridal portraits outdoors). These ladies are incredibly talented, professional, easy to communicate with, prompt, fun, friendly, enthusiastic, I could go on and on! I am SO impressed with their services and will recommend them to every future bride I meet!

-Merinda 

Hi ladies! Just wanted to say thanks so much for the awesome bridal hair and makeup trial Last week. It was so fun meeting LaDonna and kaia and seeing my hair/makeup vision become a, reality! Can’t wait to see them for the big day in a few weeks.

-Amanda 

I cannot thank Lashes & Lace enough for the amazingly beautiful job they did for my wedding. Everyone looked absolutely stunning and I have had SO many compliments on how beautiful everyone looked. I was very particular about how I wanted my hair and makeup to look for my big day and Sarah and LaDonna absolutely nailed it!!! I was extremely pleased with how well the makeup lasted ALL day and night! My ceremony was at 10am and we weren’t able to take pictures until 4pm and everyone’s hair and makeup still looked flawless for the pictures. Not only did they do an amazing job with hair and makeup but they also provided amazing customer service. Every time I reached out to Sarah with questions etc. she was always very quick to respond. I could not have asked for a better experience with these ladies. I would book them over and over again! Sarah, LaDonna, Randi and Tiinia ya’II are AMAZING!

-Andrea 

Sarah & LaDonna just did my hair & make up for my bridal portraits this week and I couldn’t be happier with their work! They stated by making sure we had plenty of time to make my hair & make up perfect. LaDonna did amazing work with my hair, blending the look I wanted with her own creativity and Sarah gave me the exact make up look I wanted despite me not having the words to totally describe what I wanted..an impressive feat! I know that I’m in good hands for my big day here in a few weeks!

-Sarah 

The morning of my wedding was rushed and early, but Sarah and La Donna were prompt and efficient. They kept to my schedule for the day down to a tea and had everyone’s hair and makeup done with insane precision. LaDonna came ready for my newly added extensions and Sarah was able to cover up my wedding week breakouts (my usually oily, broken out skin looked FLAWLESS). I couldn’t have been happier with how my hair and makeup turned out on my wedding day! My hair stayed all day long and looked amazing in the process. My makeup was exactly what I had envisioned for my wedding day. I couldn’t have asked for better artists for my special day! Thank you Lashes and Lace!

I had my wedding trial last night with Sarah and LaDonna, and I cannot say enough great things about the artists. I have a unique perspective in that, not only have I been in a ton of weddings in which professionals did my hair and makeup, I also had another trial for my wedding a few months back with a different company. After my previous trial, I was turned off by the ambivalence of the artists and the “been there, done that” sort of attitude. I continued to look online and decided to go with Lashes & Lace based on great reviews and Sarah’s personable manner over the phone. The Lashes & Lace team had their days packed with photoshoots, magazine spreads, boudoir  shoots, and more. They care no just wedding artists, people. They can DO IT ALL. That said, even after a day of work (my trial was 6pm), Sarah is a complete perfectionist. She truly views you face as a blank canvas and puts the time and effort in to make the final product flawless. Last night, when Sarah and LaDonna showed me myself in the mirror, I was TOTALLY FLOORED. I have never felt so beautiful in my life. On top of that, both ladies are funny, energetic, and sweet to be around. They put me at ease the entire night, and I felt like I was hanging out with friends. A month before my wedding, this is more than I could’ve dreamed of, and now I have one less thing to worry about because I am totally confident that they will do an incredible job on me (again) AND all of my bridesmaids! I can’t wait until Sept. 17!

-Mary Catherine 

I just did my hair and make-up trait run with Sarah and LaDonna. Now, I don’t wear make-up, save for the occasional mascara, so I had no idea what I wanted for a took for my big day. I Left it completely up to Sarah and she did not disappoint. LaDonna did a great job of recreating my {interest inspired hairstyle. Both she and LaDonna made my sister and me feet comfortable and at ease; the experience was fun and it truly felt Like spending time with close friends. I kept saying I feet Like a princess and that’s exactly what a girt wants on her big day! Can’t wait for the real thing

Amazing. Sarah was extremely professional and accommodating during the scheduling process. The artists are ridiculously talented. LaDonna, Randi, and Kaia are beautiful people and made sure myself and my girls were gorgeous for my wedding. They were a delight to be around, calming when it got a bit hectic, and again …. super talented. They basically walked in the morning of wearing capes. If you are trying to decide if L&L is worth the dollars or stuck trying to decide on which vendor to use, PLEASE STOP and schedule with L&L. You will not regret it.

-Tara

Ladonna did my daughters makeup and hair for her wedding. She had done my makeup also prior to that. It was very well done, and I did not want to take it off, so I did not … 😉 … it looked pretty good the next day also. My daughter looked amazing! she looked like a brunette Marilyn Monroe, and she stayed amazing all day! How can it get any better than that? She is a passionate artist, professional and fun! Top
notch … Thanks, Ladonna!

-Cindi 

Ladonna was a dream to work with on my wedding. She was so much more than just a hair and makeup artist, she helped me plan the appropriate amount of time needed to get ready prior to the wedding and accompanied me to the venue to help me get dressed and put on my veil. We had a bridal trial and then a secondary trial when she did my hair and makeup for my bridal portraits. Ladonna also did the hair and makeup for my mother and sister in law to be and they could not have been happier. She is courteous, professional, relaxing to be around, and one of the best hair and makeup artists I have ever worked with. Would highly recommend for any event.

-Courtney

LaDonna Stein, Lashes & Lace Makeup and Hair was absolutely fantastic. I’ve actually used her for a couple events, not only my wedding but my bridal photos, a website photo shoot and a costume party. I’ve recommended her multiple times to family and friends. LaDonna is top notch!

-Nicole

I met LaDonna Stein with Lashes & Lace at a boudoir photography event a good friend of mine put together back in January of 2011. After she did my makeup and hair for those photos, I decided that I had to figure out how to get her booked for my wedding in September. She is just simply amazing! I am a country girl who does not wear makeup or know how to do my hair. She made me feel like a princess on both occasions and I just love her and her work. Anytime someone asks me about recommendations for make-up and hair, she is always the first person I recommend. If you need someone to make you feel beautiful, LaDonna is your girl!

-Kaleese

LaDonna did an awesome job on my make up and my other family members. She even covered up on of my bridesmaids tattoos that she wanted covered up. Plus most of all I the bride got stitches removed from my forehead the day before the wedding and you could not even tell with the fabulous make job. I would highly recommend her for any make up job anytime.

-Kristi 

LaDonna and Kaia with Lashes and Lace Makeup were AMAZING when I visited them in Dallas for my makeup trial for my wedding! I knew exactly how I wanted to took, and they were more than witting to do exactly what I wanted, and change anything I asked to he changed. They did everything with no hesitation, and realty enjoyed feedback which made things even better! I definitely recommend booking them for your big day!!!

-Madison

Sarah and La Donna were a pleasure to work with. We met for the trial run for my hair and makeup, and I looked better than I could ever have imagined (or let alone, have done myself). La Donna added clip in extensions into my hair to help fill it out, and then did a beautiful half up hairstyle, which looked beautiful and romantic. Sarah’s makeup on me was gorgeous. I felt like I should be walking down a read carpet. I would highly recommend Lashes & Lace for your wedding hair and makeup. I can’t wait till my actual wedding day to have them help make me look my best!
