Lauren from Hello Darling! did an amazing job for my wedding day. Her confidence made me feel assured that she would do a good job. From the start she made it about ME and what I wanted. She was patient and listened to all the details of how I wanted my hair for my special day. She made me feel comfortable and let me be as picky as I wanted...this was important to me because I wanted to make sure I could communicate what I wanted without offending my hairstylist. On the wedding day she was very punctual and was always calm among all the chaos going on around her. It was great to share my special day with someone who really cared to do an excellent job and was sweet and encouraging along the way. As a bride you have enough stress and its so nice to have someone who has been there and understands that you want everything to be perfect and will work with you towards that goal. Oh and the over all experience is great! She doesn't pull your hair ;)

Lauren is not only an amazing hairstylist, she’s also wonderful to work with. She did my hair, all the bridesmaids’ hair and my mom’s hair. She very organized, kept things running smoothly and was a joy to be around. My hair was exactly what I wanted! I showed her a picture and she was able to recreate it to perfection!

I met Lauren through a salon she used to work at, and immediately found her to be warm, friendly, attentive, responsive, and (probably most important for the purpose of this review!) immensely talented as a wedding hair stylist.
After I saw her for a haircut and inquired about her wedding styling services, she followed up with photos of similar styles she'd done as the one I had showed her for inspiration, and offered a great, affordable package for me, my mom, and future MIL. I did a hair trial with Lauren which turned out very nicely, but Lauren, on her own initiative, followed up and offered me an additional trial at no cost because she wanted to try to see if hair extensions would help to give my desired hairstyle more volume and sculpting effect, since my natural hair is very thin and without much body even with product. I had never used extensions before, and was nervous about how they would look, but was willing to give them a shot after Lauren eased my fears. Lauren found the perfect match for my hair -- the second trial was amazing and made the hairstyle so much more beautiful and exactly what I was going for.
I highly recommend Lauren for wedding hair styling -- you will not be disappointed; she is truly gifted at what she does. I also love Lauren's home studio and her cut and color services -- it's comfortable, professional, and a wonderful change from your regular busy, chaotic, and impersonal salon experience.

I had a tricky updo that consisted of curly waves all over- really quite beautiful. I had cut my hair and was desperately trying to grow it out for my wedding...so by this time it was only shoulder length which would make any updo appear small/without body and inadequate on its own. She offered and allowed me to borrow hair extensions for my wedding day which she had me simply return that week after. (who does that?! So willing and wonderful) the hair extensions incorporated into my hair in the updo changed the entire dynamic of the style..it made it utterly beautiful. Looking back at photos my eyes initially go to my hair first then the dress etc. that's saying quite a lot! I cannot begin to tell you how many compliments I received on my hair alone. I would definitely recommend Lauren Prohaska of Hello Darling Hairstyles to anyone and everyone. Her expertise combined with her loving heart for clients makes for a thoroughly calming experience!
