Lucy is a talented artist and was a calming force in my wedding day. She arrived promptly and transformed my small apartment living room into a full service salon. I looked and felt great!
Lucy, Abby & Natasha were wonderful. My squad and moms all felt and looked beautiful for my wedding day. They all showed flexibility and patience with everyone's requests (and second requests). The timing of the day went well and we all enjoyed hanging with the crew. Natasha did a fab job of adding flower pieces from my florist in each of my bridal squad's hairstyles. Abby was a total pro in her makeup application and listening to everyone's personal makeup preference. Unfortunately my big hair fell quite limp quickly, even with extreme humidity, but it didn't stop me from the best day.
I will recommend Miss Harlequin to my friends and family in the future.
Lucy really is an artist! I had my test session for wedding makeup with her, just before my engagement photos, and she was very thoughtful about integrating the makeup styles I presented as my favorites along with great new suggestions. She makes experimenting with lip shades and style options a fun experience together. Her studio is also a pleasant space, with plenty of natural lighting along with the mirror lighting, so you have a good sense for how the makeup will look outdoors. We took photos of the various options to help me decide which look to go for. The results were lovely! My engagement photos were gorgeous, and I got myriad compliments from strangers walking by as we were taking them. I look forward to working with Lucy again on my wedding day!!
I am so grateful to have had Lucy and the Miss Harlequin team as part of my wedding day. From my trial to my wedding day, Lucy was easy going, friendly, professional, and a pleasure to work with. My hair and makeup came out exactly as I'd hoped and I felt beautiful. She also helped my mom and loved ones look their best, even those who were afraid of looking overly made up. The moms, sisters, and my girls looked wonderful and felt their best. Lucy was a joy to work with and I highly recommend her!
I would just like to comment on the appointment I had for my hair & make up by Miss Harlequin on September 26th in New York.
Wow is my reaction to how I was presented for my wedding in Central Park.
The make-up was absolutely fabulous and my hair do, half up half down was amazing.
I looked absolutely stunning! Thank you so so much for making my wedding that extra special
I thought the services of Miss Harlequin were fantastic - incredibly friendly and attentive. Really listened to the look we were going for and maximized that look (we were doing a 1920’s theme) for each person. We also had a lot of fun, having someone who is easy going, yet incredibly personable to do hair and make-up on a wedding day definitely helps to keep the mood light and the nerves at bay.
Lucy and her team did hair and makeup for five of us on my wedding day and it all turned out beautifully! We all felt like the best version of ourselves, which is exactly what we were hoping for. I did a hair and makeup trial early on and had so much fun with Lucy that I knew I wanted her to be a part of my wedding day. I even changed my mind on what I wanted in the way of wedding hair (post-trial) and Lucy worked with me on the fly and put together a gorgeous updo.
The team was efficient but patient, and was friendly and fun to be around. I had a tight schedule and they amazingly worked with us to make it all happen. They were flexible and super responsive. And of course, I have to mention that my makeup and hair lasted through a late night! Highly, highly recommend Miss Harlequin!
Oh Lucy, Lucy, Lucy. I have such warm and happy feelings when I think about you.
I just got married last week and the day was perfect thanks to Lucy, Cynthia (photographer), the Greenwich hotel and Grand Banks. Lucy is so incredibly talented, kind and stylish. (btw, she also looks like a model.
I had my hair and makeup trial in January and i liked it, but I changed my mind about my hair as the wedding was approaching and Lucy was so easygoing and turned me into the bride of my dreams,
I went boxing a week before my wedding and had pretty bloody knuckles that Lucy was able to airbrush with ease.
I highly recommend Lucy, she is so professional, efficient and friendly. She's a busy lady, so make sure to book her in advance. :)
Lucy and her team were awesome to work with!
Lucy, Desi and Cati managed to do hair and makeup for myself (bride) and 4 bridesmaids and 2 mothers in under 3 hours even with some hiccups around seating / setup space. They were able to run with it and not let the issue delay the schedule.
And a special callout to Lucy who was so amazing to work with and ultimately knew my bone structure better than I did. The photos came out amazing and even 15 hours later my face had not melted off :)
I would highly recommend Lucy and her team! I used her services for on site hair and makeup for my wedding 2 weeks ago. From the trials weeks prior to the date of my wedding to the payment process Lucy was organized and on top of every detail. She sent Abby for makeup and Paulina for makeup and hair. Both of theses girls were incredibly talented and I loved my hair and makeup and am super picky and Abby did an amazing job on my makeup and the bridesmaids and Paulina on the maid of honor hair and my bridal up do as well as beautiful makeup for bridesmaids and mother of bride and groom as well. Both of them have the talent and personality that was 5* and beyond. In conclusion I definitely
recommend Lucy and her services for all your hair and makeup needs.
"I had searched for somewhere affordable to do hair and make up for my relatively small wedding (50ish people).
I found Miss Harlequinn, and within an hour I was hearing back from Lucy with details. Due to the time frame of my wedding (mid morning) she offered to do it herself which completely shocked me since I was expecting one of her team members.
I had my trial a few months before, and she was very easy going and great! I had a lot of fun when I thought I wouldn't and she did a great job of making my rather flat thin hair look amazing.
The day of the wedding she came to my apartment at 6am, and was wonderful and very attentive. My hair and make up looked great and stayed in place the entire day.
I would highly recommend for any function."
Cati was so, so great. So nice and so chill - plus the hair/makeup were perfect. And at the very last minute, when I suddenly realized a tan line was going to make my sheer-backed dress look not great, she unpacked all her stuff and airbrushed over it entirely. Couldn't have been more happy with Cati/Lucy Flint's team (also Lucy was great with emailing and following up with me -- very organized and totally professional). Recommend!
Lucy provided the perfect touch of NYC glam for my rustic Catskills wedding in August. She was absolutely amazing and from the time I met her at my trial, I knew I wanted her to be part of the day. She trekked up to the mountains with her supplies and did hair and makeup for me, my mom and my new mother in law. She even did a little styling of the nervous groom's hair. I felt amazing and the hair and makeup lasted through summer humidity, late night dancing, and watching fireworks in the rain. On top of providing amazing hair and makeup, Lucy was truly a calming and reassuring presence to everyone and I wholeheartedly recommend her and her team to anyone considering her services!
Words cannot explain how amazing Lucy Flint is. Having been referred to her by a friend two years before our actual ceremony, I had the incredible opportunity for her to do my makeup three times before our actual wedding. For the wedding trial, the bridal shower, our rehearsal dinner, and finally, the day of.
Having had the opportunity to get to know Lucy over the past two years, she became so much more than a makeup artist. She became a sounding board for a new mom, planning her wedding 3,000 miles away with a newborn. She became a friend. Having two Littles herself, she knew hard it was for a new breastfeeding Mom to be away from her son, and selflessly offered her home to me to preserve my supply... the first day we met.
These pictures only begin to capture her personality. Her optimism and energy is infectious, and honestly every moment spent with her was better than the last.
She was able to get to know our little family, and get to know exactly how I hoped I would look when we finally joined our little family of three this past June. It was just like I dreamed... honestly, it was better.
Not only is she incredibly talented, she was a calming force throughout the entire wedding process, and managed to make even the most stressed bride (me) look exactly how I dreamed I would look; calm, composed, and above all else, happy.
Lucy, we cannot thank you enough for all that you did for our wedding. You somehow managed to make myself, and the entire bridal party, look amazing, some having booked at the very last minute! I cannot recommend you enough. All I can say is, any bride that has the opportunity to have you in tow at their wedding should consider themselves very, very lucky.
From the initial trial to our actual wedding day, both of us (being two brides) were over-the-moon about Cati's friendly personality, spot-on service and attention to detail. Our looks were exactly what we wanted and truly represented our personalities. We couldn't be happier with Miss Harlequin's rates, services and exceptional hospitality.
They were great! My make up artist was Liza. She was easy to work with and made adjustments as I requested. I couldn't have been happier!
My wedding hair and make-up were great, and Lucy made the process of scheduling and payment simple.
I had Cati as my stylist, and Desi styled my mother and in-law. Both were wonderful ladies to work with, and really helped me stay calm throughout the morning. My typical make-up is very simple, and Cati really heard me when I said I wanted to look natural. Desi did a wonderful job with my mother, who can be pretty particular.
I would definitely recommend to anyone who really wants their make-up and hair stylist to listen to what they want!
My friend had a very small, intimate wedding in Manhattan, and I coordinated with Lucy from Chicago over email. She was wonderful to work with, very professional. All I went off of were her communication skills and her yelp reviews, so I really didn't know what to expect from her regarding makeup. Her makeup and hair skills were perfect! I have difficult hair, and she worked with it adeptly and made it beautiful. She airbrushes, which I love but forgot to even ask. My makeup was gorgeous. The bride looked astonishing! As did her bridesmaids. Would definitely hire her again in a snap if I'm ever in NYC.
Miss Harlequin was great - Lucy is incredibly responsive, which is so reassuring when you're dealing with so many vendors. We worked with Cati and Tatiana for day-of hair and makeup. Both of them did a wonderful job, especially with the makeup. Cati worked with me to redo parts of my updo when I wasn't completely happy with it, and she was flexible and relaxed the whole time. They are all a pleasure!
Miss Harlequin is a wonderful company to work with. My original hair and makeup team fell through, and I contacted Lucy at the last minute, about two weeks before my wedding. She responded right away and answered all of my questions and calmed me down. I was able to schedule a makeup trial with Cati, which turned out great. Cati and Desi did hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids the morning of my wedding. They showed up on time and were great to work with. My whole bridal party loved the way they looked. I definitely recommend them for weddings. Lucy is A++ at dealing with stressed, crazy brides.
Miss Harlequin is a precious jewel. From the very first email to the last dusting of setting power, coordinating with Lucy and working with the senior makeup artist (Tatiana) was a high-class experience that truly allowed me to enjoy my wedding day. They are hard-working perfectionists who will listen to you and collaborate with you to help execute your vision. Tatiana was a super-trooper and worked like a true pro to get me, two bridesmaids and two moms looking glamorous for the rest of the day. Everyone really enjoyed their time in the chair and I couldn't have been happier! Both my makeup and my hair stayed put and perfect into the early morning and I'll say with confidence that I've never felt more beautiful.
I had a number of other options fall through in the weeks before my wedding, so I *especially* appreciate Lucy's communication skills and her ability to soothe frayed bridal nerves. Don't overthink it, go with Miss Harlequin and you will not be disappointed.
Lucy was great when she came and did my hair and make-up on the morning of my City Hall wedding in New York. My husband and I came from the UK to get married in NYC, and I found Lucy online. She was great at responding to my messages before our trip, and was brilliant on the morning of the wedding, even though it was an early start!
I'm a bit clueless about hair and make-up and I'd had a slightly disappointing make-up trial in the UK, so was really only able to tell Lucy what I hadn't liked from the trial, and a vague idea of what I thought I'd like for my look on the big day. She interpreted it fabulously, and made me look great while I still felt I looked like myself! Also, it was a really hot summer's day and my make-up stayed in place all day.
Thanks so much, Lucy - I'd recommend you to any future bride.
Lucy was a true godsend. What a fun and amazing personality! And so so talented! I felt so gorgeous on BOTH my wedding days! My husband and I said our first wedding of the week at the courthouse on a Monday morning. Lucy was at my place bright and early at 6:30 on a very rainy morning, ready to work and help me pull together my look. We laughed and had fun and drank tea and in no time at all I felt more gorgeous than ever! We snapped gorgeous photos and I felt appropriately glam for our courthouse event! Then! For our big wedding party, with family in from out of town, and our Soho party later that week, Lucy came to help me get ready at the Crosby Street Hotel with my girlfriends and sister and our awesome photographer, John Keon. She fit right in like family, had some champagne, and before I know it, I looked EXACTLY like my trial look -- feeling 100% confident and the most beautiful I ever felt. Lucy was warm, comforting, friendly, SO SO SKILLED, and the best I could have ever wanted. I knew from minute one at my trial that she would be the best to work with -- and I only ever met her. Why search when you found perfection!? I only wish I could get married once more so we could do it all over! I am most certain I will look to her again for other events and big moments in my life -- she is like a swat team for my confidence!! Thank you, thank you, Lucy!
Lucy is an amazingly talented wedding makeup artist/hair stylist, and for her quality of work, you literally cannot find a better deal in the city!
I got married on May 20th at 3 West, and I did a lot of research for each of my vendors - I contacted around 10 makeup artists. Lucy had the best reviews, the most reasonable pricing (especially for airbrush), and the all-in-one versatility that I needed (a lot of people either do makeup or hair but not both).
She came with 2 other girls for myself, my mother / mother-in-law, and 4 bridesmaids about 4 hours before when I needed to be ready by. It was such a pleasure working with her and hearing about her fun career / her own amazing wedding (seriously ask her about it, she's sooo cool) that the time just flew by.
I had felt that my hair was a bit too loose after the trial, which she really took into account and put in extra bobby pins and gel to make sure it stayed on better. On wedding day, my hair stayed up amazingly well from when it was done by 1pm to when my afterparty ended at 3am, and the airbrush makeup lasted through many tears.
Lucy is worth every penny, I cannot be happier with how my wedding pictures turned out!
Lucy is amazing! She was my and my mom's make up and hair artist for my wedding this past May. The process all the way from booking to choosing a style to the day-of was a breeze. I couldn't have asked for anything better.
Lucy is a pleasure to have around. The day of the wedding she arrived on time with all the equipment necessary to make sure she could do her work well no matter the location and our makeup/hair preferences. She's so easy to talk to! It was very nice getting to know her and sharing a portion of such a special day with her.
I will absolutely work with her again for my hair and makeup for future special occasions.
Thank you Lucy!!!!
Lucy and her team did a wonderful job on me and my bridesmaids, mother, sister and flower girl. They were punctual and friendly, made us all feel at ease and knew exactly how to make us look our best for this important event. I received so many compliments throughout my wedding day and felt unbelievably confident. Now that I'm starting to receive some pictures from the day I couldn't be happier with the hair and makeup Lucy did on me. I would 100% recommend her and her team!
Lucy and her team are incredible! I planned a small city hall ceremony, and with only a few weeks away I needed to find a dress, flowers, a photographer, a restaurant, and a makeup/hair artist. Lucy made the process so easy and professional. She stayed in contact with me throughout the process and found me the most perfect makeup artist, Tatiana, who exceeded my expectations! Since I wasn't going to have a trial beforehand, Lucy and Tatiana discussed with me beforehand and took into account the photos I sent for the look I wanted. On the morning of the wedding, Tatiana arrived on time at 7am; she was not only talented but so warm and friendly! She can do it all -- hair, makeup, airbrushing, and fake lashes (which looked so natural). The makeup stayed on all day, even in the sweltering 90 degree weather. And I received so many compliments! I've recommended her to my friends and family, and I will definitely book again for future fancy events.
Lucy and her team are absolutely incredible. I found Lucy on The Knot and met her for an initial consultation in April. Unlike some other hair and makeup artists I'd had trial runs with, she perfectly executed looks I'd found online when she tried them on my hair. Her makeup application was natural and flawless. I was sold -- so much so that instead of going with the style I originally had in mind, I asked her what she would do to my hair given how my dress and hair are if I had no preference. She immediately responded with a beautiful style idea that I ended up adapting. I loved it. It had all of the components of what I wanted but was better. She ended up sweeping my hair to one side so my back was exposed and my hair was in a beautiful wave to one side. It stayed put from 1:00 PM when she finished it and still looked great twelve hours later when the wedding was over. In fact - it seemed to get better throughout the evening as the curls fell but still looked flawless in photographs at the beginning of the day. Mind you, this was a humid summer day of almost 90 degree heat and my hair and makeup stayed perfect through pictures, ugly crying, and hours of dancing. Throughout the planning process she was a dream to work with. She is highly organized and was able to do hair and makeup for eleven women in a short period of time, with the assistance of two other stylist - Tatiana and Paulina, who were both fabulous. Everyone looked beautiful and natural for the wedding -- I cannot wait to see the professional pictures! Lucy is the best and worth every penny.
I would highly recommend Miss Harlequin to any bride looking for hair and makeup services on her big day! Unlike a lot of the competitor businesses which only offer makeup alone or hair alone, Miss Harlequin is a fantastic choice if you want to just keep things easy (yes please!) and they do both at a very reasonable price. The entire team was EXTREMELY nice and fun to be around. You only want good vibes on your wedding day and Miss Harlequin provides that.
And let's not forget how freaking beautiful we looked thanks to Lucy's team! My bridesmaids and I felt amazing on my wedding day and I can't thank Lucy's team enough. Cati did my hair/makeup and Natasha and Gwen did hair/makeup for my bridesmaids. I also had to pleasure of meeting Lucy during my trial and she was so cool and had AMAZING style! New York and Brooklyn ladies who want to look elegant, hip, and not like you're going to prom on your wedding, then look no further than Miss Harlequin. I literally cannot say enough positive things. Do not hesitate to book them!!!
I worked with Liza from Miss Harlequin for my wedding this past Saturday. I'm really picky about my makeup and rarely like the makeup I've had done for friends' weddings, but I felt amazing on my wedding day!
Lucy, the owner, was a great communicator, and Liza was an amazing stylist. She showed up early and was relaxed and efficient and fun to chat with and very passionate about her work. She took the time to really understand what I did and didn't want and then far exceeded my expectations. I got tons of compliments on my hair especially, which looked soft and romantic but didn't budge at all throughout the event, and when I unpinned it turned into gorgeous curls that lasted through the next day!
Will add pics to this review as soon as I have some good ones back from the photographer!
I hired Lucy's team for my wedding last month and they were absolutely amazing! I had about 10 ladies including myself for hair/makeup. The team (Tatiana, Brett & Natasha) were very precise and on schedule of the timeline we've established especially with such a large group of ladies to do.
I hired Lucy for my wedding day, and it was one of the best decisions I made. We were blessed to work with many excellent vendors on my wedding day, but Lucy and Cati were truly exceptional. I have long, curly hair that has a tendency to frizz - and I got married in New York City in August. Despite the weather working against me, I wasn't afraid because I trusted Lucy would be able to give me perfect hair on my wedding day. And she did! She used my natural hair texture and curl (which was very important to my husband) to craft me the most beautiful retro updo. I felt stunning. Lucy and Cati also did a wonderful job on my family and friends. They were able to deliver a wide variety of looks while still making them look cohesive. On top of making my whole party look amazing, Lucy and Cati were a joy to hang out with! It felt like I had two extra friends on my wedding day. I would recommend Lucy and her team to anyone on their wedding day. Hiring her was by far one of the best decisions I made.
I have no reservations recommending Lucy as a highly talented, spunky, thoughtful and warm make-up artist and hair stylist. Thankfully Lucy accepted my last minute job and showed up at 5:30 in the morning to transform me from a plain Jane into a bride. Without any fuss, she immediately got to work while we gabbed about life and love, weddings and babies. I really felt her calmness and focus set the tone for the rest of the day - which was one of the most memorable days of my life! Thank you, Lucy!
I don't even know where to start. Absolutely amazing team. My hair are very short and my dream was to wear a nice updo but hair stylist prior to that told me it was impossible and I should just get a nice wig. My hair is short because I had chemotherapy for breast cancer and my hair didnt grow as long as I thought they would in a year. Anyway Natasha made it happen and I have a pictures to show, she did an amazing updo that lasted the entire night and I was blown away, needless to say my mom and bridesmaids hair were on point. Same with my makeup, Gwen did an amazing job, my make up was flawless the entire night. I highly recommend. I felt like a princess because of Natasha and Gwen. I could give million starts if possible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot begin to explain the level of quality and professionalism this team has. Absolutely outstanding work! I saw Lucy Flint twice before my wedding and she was so incredibly collaborative but more importantly fun and inviting! She's committed to you and making sure you look wonderful for your day. Not only that, I had 4 bridesmaids and 2 mothers and only allotted 3 hours for all hair and makeup and they did a phenomenal job! I was actually done EARLY! The most important factor here is that they can do hair AND makeup. It truly makes life easy. Also - their ability to literally do ANY STYLE you want is amazing. Finally, the quality of the make up they use is some of the best in the industry! My makeup did NOT BUDGE and I barely had any shine throughout an entire day (that was HOT)! I would not hesitate for a second to do at the very least a trial with Lucy's team. But I will guarantee you will NOT be disappointed if you select this team for your day. They're seriously the best in the business. Thank you team!!!!
I can't recommend Lucy highly enough. From the trial to the day of, she was literally amazing. I didn't have a specific idea of what I wanted, and she made great recommendations and worked so quickly to show me some options. I felt so comfortable working with her and as someone who doesn't wear a ton of makeup, I was so glad that the final product felt like me, just enhanced. The whole getting ready process day of with her and Cati was so comfortable and fun. Picking Lucy and Miss Harlequin was one of the best wedding decisions I made and I highly recommend them.
Had Lucy do my hair/makeup for my wedding earlier this year. She was absolutely wonderful!
I found her on Yelp and loved the way she did curls. I wanted to wear my hair down but also had a dress I wanted to show off my back in, so asked her if she could do a side-swept sort of vintage curly style. I did a trial and she completely nailed it. I also adored my makeup, which was very natural. My now-husband couldn't stop saying how perfect I looked at the event. But I also still looked like me, which was very important to me!
It's also very important to note that Lucy is a wonderful person to talk to and I completely enjoyed spending my wedding morning hanging out with her. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone.
Cati did hair and makeup for me, my mom and a friend for my wedding and everyone looked amazing. I procrastinated finding a makeup artist because I do not ever wear makeup. Cati heard me, was 100% on board with my wishes. She used little makeup, and made me feel both special and like myself all at once. She was also a lovely person and my friends and I had a lot of fun chatting with her the morning of my wedding. Throughout the process, I interacted with Lucy, who is incredibly professional, responsive and kind. Could not be more pleased!
Book now... before it's too late!
Typically, I don't wear a lot of makeup and when I've had my makeup done in the past... I ended up not looking like myself. For my wedding, it was important to me to look done-up but in a natural way. I gave her a few examples of what I wanted... Lucy nailed it.
Lucy knows exactly how to enhance your beauty and make your pretty face, even prettier. She can get you the look you want and be flexible if you change your mind (like I did). Lucy is incredibly talented and is so much more than a makeup & hair artist just for weddings. She'll make you look like a knock-out for any event.
The year leading up to the big day on May 28, 2017, I saw Lucy for my 1) wedding trial 2) engagement photos 3) rehearsal 4) wedding. She's my go-to if I'm looking to get dolled up for any special occasion.
Now I just need to find another special occasion ;)
My experience, from the trial to the wedding day, was perfect. Cati was wonderful and did a brilliant job at bringing my image of being a vintage bride to life. Would book them again without a thought. 5 stars. - K.
