Hands down best experience I have had with makeup and hair for ANY formal event!!! I got complements all day/night about my hair and makeup as well as how awesome all of my bridesmaids looked! Melissa and Tracey were both very professional and easy to work with, and I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to make their special day flawless. Amazing work!!!!! Thank you ladies so much :)


I did a lot of research before deciding on Bella Bridal Artistry (BBA). Melissa, the owner, was so quick to respond and answered all of my questions. I loved the natural look of the makeup on the photos she had on her profile, and I loved the diversity of skin type, face shape and hairstyles. The pricing is very fair and one that both I felt comfortable with for myself and for my bridesmaids. I had a very large bridal party (11 ladies) and Melissa and her team got us all ready ahead of schedule. We all got so many compliments on the quality and attractiveness of our hair and makeup (which stayed on the entire day and night...our ceremony didn’t end until after midnight). My bridal hair and makeup was unreal. For both my trial and for the wedding, I was beyond pleased with the way I looked and couldn’t tell you how many people raved about my makeup and my hair. I challenged the hairstylist with a request for an intricate updo and she delivered both times. I will absolutely encourage anyone and everyone to use BBA and hope I get to work with them again one day!


Melissa and her team are absolutely amazing and so skilled! They came on- site and did 10 of us girls flawlessly. I received so many compliments and she truly is the best! My makeup stayed in place all night and my hair was EXACTLY what I wanted!!! You won’t regret hiring this amazing team for your big day!


I LOVED my wedding look! I cannot thank these ladies enough for their work. I have never been a girly-girl, and I do not wear makeup or do my hair unless I have to. However, one's wedding is an exception. I told them what I wanted (simple and natural), and they delivered in less time than was allotted, which is a bonus. They also did my mom's hair and makeup, and my momma felt so beautiful. It made a big difference for her because she was so nervous about looking nice for my wedding. If you need your hair or makeup done and some fun conversation to calm your nerves, these are your ladies!


I was a very picky bride - I wanted things my way and made sure the idea in my head became a reality. And let me tell you what - Bella Bridal went above and beyond on my hair and makeup! All of my guests said how fabulous I looked and how great my bridesmaids looked. We had Tracey do our hair and Melissa do our makeup. They were amazing on price and did an amazing job! They worked on my mom, mother in law, two sisters and flower girl. We all have different features, skin tone, and hair type and somehow they made each of us look like beauty queens even in the summer heat. I gave them a picture of what I wanted for my hair and makeup and they made exactly that happen - but it looked even better than the picture. 
I was also impressed at their custom service. They asked me to look at my hair and makeup and point out anything I wanted changed or fixed. When I pointed out a few minor things they happily fixed them - no moaning or groaning that I was being picky - and that is a hard thing to find. I also must say they were the most reasonably priced stylists. Others charged you for travel (in their home city) or required you to have a crazy high minimum or required you to do a trial with them. But Bella didn’t have any of those requirements so it made things more affordable. 

Again I just cannot say enough good things about them - they were affordable, professional, and produced fabulous results. I was so happy I picked them to do hair and makeup for my wedding!


"Melissa and her team are fantastic! Melissa is very quick with responses and will accommodate your schedule. I had such a great experience from the very first meeting to the wedding day. The make up and hair is phenomenal. You will feel like a princess on your big day!"


"Melissa is so fun, easy going and a make-up magician!

Melissa did such an amazing job getting the bridesmaids, mother of the bride and the bride completed in timely manner. She was flexible in adding services after the fact and had such a great sense of humor. She was so fun, but also professional- all the ladies in the bridal suite enjoyed being around her. She is new to the Asheville area, but is making herself known. Ladies, you will love your look and it won't break the bank (like those other AVL artists). I will share Bella Bridal Artistry with everyone I know and recommend Melissa to anyone!"



Melissa is very easy to communicate with (text, emails, you name it, she was on it), very reassuring, and she went above and beyond what was expected of her. High quality artistry was delivered quickly (which I appreciated because I had a big party) but meticulously- each hair and eyelash was attended to. And everyone had fun! The hair and make up artists were so much fun to talk to and get ready with! We all danced and listened to music! It was a great start to a very special day!

Each hair and make up artists also listened to what we wanted (each girl had a slightly different look she wanted to go for and each woman delivered). I (the bride) personally have never felt so beautiful in my whole life. I have never felt so confident either. They were wonderful and I cannot recommend Bella Bridal enough!

In addition to that, the pricing is VERY competitive for the Asheville area and given the quality of work, it was more than worth it!"


Melissa and the team are amazing! They made my day even more special. They listened to what each girl wanted, but made sure it was my vision as well. Not only that, they have great attitudes, smiles, and felt like old friends. Thank you, ladies!


"Bella Bridal Artistry provided such excellent service for my wedding day, they even finished early! Everyone's hair and makeup looked great and everyone was very happy with their service. I was extremely happy with Alisha and Kellerie! My hair and makeup were both flawless! They are both talented, skilled at their craft and enjoyable to work with. Thank you for everything!"



"Melissa with Bella Bridal Artistry is so amazing! From our initial contact about my wedding make-up, she was always so prompt to respond to any questions I had. When I met Melissa for my trial I felt like we were old friends! She has a very contagious, upbeat personality that just makes you feel so comfortable. She listens to the look you want and does an outstanding job. She traveled to my venue for my wedding day and although I was a ball of nerves, she kept me smiling and calm throughout my makeup application. I truly felt like a princess!"



I can't thank Melissa enough for all of her help in making my bridesmaids and me feel gorgeous on my wedding day. She enlisted the help of Sheri and Jessie, who took the time to really listen to what each of us were hoping for in our looks. Melissa was responsive and flexible, especially in the planning phases. I really needed that with the chaos of planning a wedding! I highly recommend Melissa and her girls :)


"Melissa and her team did such a beautiful job with my hair and makeup for my engagement photoshoot. She is very quick to respond if you ever needed to get a hold of her. The years of experience she has been doing makeup speaks for itself. I'm very glad to have worked with someone who is easy-going and was able to carry out the look I wanted for my engagement shoot so effortlessly."


"There is absolutely no one better out there than Melissa!! She made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. She does amazing work and is so sweet. Airbrush make up is great and I strongly recommend seeing Melissa for your big or any event!! Thank you times a million!"


"Melissa was wonderful to work with! She is very responsive, and so willing to work with you! Tracey that did my hair was phenomenal, everyone looked perfect and Melissa nailed the make up! I couldn't have asked for a better team, they made my day perfect!!"


"I'm so happy to have had Melissa as the makeup artist at my wedding! She did an absolutely amazing job and made everyone look so beautiful. My bridesmaids and I have Indian, Asian, and white skin, and she also did my mom and my mother in law. All ages and all skin types looked great. I was really happy that Melissa adjusted my wedding makeup after the trial. I thought the trial looked good, but she reviewed the photos and made adjustments on the wedding day that worked better for my face and my personality. She didn't really have to make the changes, but she is a professional and knew what to do to make my makeup even better than the trial. Melissa's friendly, calm, and professional attitude helped with my nerves on the wedding day. She is also organized and follows up on texts and emails. I'm glad Melissa was a part of our special day. Thank you so much, Melissa :)"


"Melissa was great. She did the makeup for my wedding for me and my 4 bridesmaids. She was quick and was able to do exactly what we all wanted from just seeing the ideas we had found on Pinterest. She also worked really well with our different skin tones and types: mixed race, hispanic, white, african, everything... without making us look cakey. Would recommend."



Melissa and Tracie are awesome! Both very talented ! I was so happy with my wedding hair and makeup. Highly recommended!!!


Melissa and her team were so great! We had a group of 12 that needed hair done and 6 of those needed makeup done. Everyone looked amazing! We couldn't have picked a better group to take care of us! Thank you again for everything, Melissa!

Melissa and Tracie were absolutely amazing to work with. They were helpful and responsive during the whole wedding planning process and showed up right on time and brought their A game on our wedding day. They were super efficient and made me and all my bridesmaids look so incredibly beautiful. Thank you so much Bella Bridal Artistry!!!!
