"Joanne and Nadine are amazing! They did hair and make up for me and two others and everything turned out better than expected! Our hair and makeup lasted all night and was exactly what we asked for! I had gone for a trial several months ahead (we are from Winnipeg) and I completely changed what I was asking for and it was still so perfect! Thanks so much to both of you!"

"The mountain beauties team is AMAZING!
I met them at The Bash YYC a year prior to my wedding when they were doing mini hair and make up trails to show you their skills. From just the trail I had there I knew they were the ones for me.
Being a girl who hardly ever wears make up I wanted something natural and that is exactly what they did.

Joanne the owner is so honest, caring and passionate about what she does. When I went for my trail she let me know what would work with my hair and went through every detail of what to expect on the day of if I wanted to be on time. They arrived and finished exactly on time which is almost unheard of! She even told me to save my money and instead of buying a veil for hundreds of dollars to just go buy the material and she pinned it into my hair exactly how I wanted it.

Could not have been more happier with the end results!"  

-Emily, September 2019 bride

"Flexible with adding and subtracting a few hairstyles at the last minute which was very much appreciated. Arrived on time and well prepared. Professional and efficient to get an entire bridal party ready. I was impressed with the quality of the hair and makeup and how attentive they were to each individual's style and requests. Especially impressed with how smoothly everything went given we did no trial before. A pleasure to have around on the morning of your wedding and would recommend them to anyone getting married in the Canadian Rockies!"

-Susan, February 2019 bride


“As a Banff and area wedding planner, we want only the best for our clients. Joanne and her team from Mountain Beauties are one of our favourite “go to” professionals for our clients’ beauty needs. Not only are they extremely talented in the latest hair and make-up techniques, but they also deliver an excellent client experience. Our brides tell us that the Mountain Beauty ladies really listen to their needs and offer helpful suggestions. They walk away feeling like the best version of themselves! What bride doesn’t want to feel that?

On wedding day you will be front and centre, and in countless photographs, give yourself piece of mind and trust the ladies at Mountain Beauties to deliver the utmost in quality!”

"Joanne and her team are awesome at what they do! They know how to give you the look of your dreams for your wedding day by making sure you still look like yourself! They have a lot of experience in the wedding industry and especially with mountain weddings! As a photographer, I want to make sure that my brides hair will hold in place for the day. In the mountains, the weather can be all over the place and when I'm working with Mountain Beauties I know that the brides will have their hair looking good all day long, it won't fall apart mid-day... trust me I've seen it happen to other brides and it's not fun! Mountain Beauties will most likely be the first vendors you will see on your big day and they will make sure that you relax and enjoy your day! I really like working with Joanne and her team and would not hesitate to recommend them to my future brides:)"
