Hello, we’re Updos For I Dos.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. You will remember it forever.

That's why it's so important to choose expert hairstylists and makeup artists you trust to bring out the beauty of your smile. After all, that smile and those of your bridal party will be treasured memories for years to come.

Having been a part of so many bride's weddings since 2004, we know what it takes to make you look and feel your best on your big day.

“The couple was so happy with how everything came together and kept commenting about how wonderful the day was.”
