PSA FOR ALL BRIDES: Work with Beauty by Ann Krause if you are looking for an easy, stress free and AMAZING bridal makeup and hair experience!!! I cannot say enough good things about working with Ann herself and the girls Ann made the whole experience wonderful and was always willing to answer my questions throughout the process! She is the sweetest person and I was so happy working with her. I have actually never felt so pretty in my life thanks to her girls. My bridesmaids and the moms were equally as pleased. I highly recommend working with Ann for your wedding!!!

As a curly-haired bride, I had a lot of anxiety finding someone who would embrace my curls. When I found pictures of Ann's previous work, I knew I would be in great hands! Working with Ann and Viki was easily the most enjoyable and carefree part of my entire wedding planning! Ann did a beautiful job with my curls and Viki did a wonderful job with my makeup! Both my mom and I felt super comfortable and relaxed the whole time! It was really a lovely experience! Ann and Viki are truly amazing!!

I contacted Ann's team for my wedding hair and makeup pretty late in planning and I lucked out that they were still available! (I was also getting married on a Monday so that helped!) They made everything so easy, with just a few photos I found off the internet they were able to capture the look I was going for and executed everything perfectly. They arrived on time and had everything all ready to go, the time flew and before I knew it they were already done. My hair and make up were perfect! I will absolutely be recommending them to my friends!!

For our hair and makeup artists, we worked with Nikki for hair and Viki for makeup. We loved them both! I showed them a few inspiration photos and my final hair and makeup looked exactly like what I wanted! Even in the trial run, they completely nailed it. I haven't ever gotten professional makeup done before this and I don't wear a lot of makeup so I was worried about looking overdone, but the makeup that Viki did looked very natural - I was so impressed. For my hair - I wore a traditional Middle Eastern hat and veil that I had no idea how to attach to my head. Nikki was amazing at quickly figuring out how to pin the hat to my head in a way where it stayed secure all day and she also figured out how to beautifully drape the veil over the hat and pin it in place - I absolutely loved how it looked and was so impressed with her ability to figure this out so quickly.
Ann is so incredible to work with! She is professional, responsive and all around a great person. From the hair/make up trial to the big day, Ann was always there to answer my questions and provide guidance when needed. All of my bridesmaids loved their hair/make up and it lasted all day/night. I absolutely loved my wedding day look that Ann and Giselle brought to life for me. I can't recommend this team enough!! I know a handful of couples who have used this team and all provided positive feedback!

Ann and her team were amazing from start to finish for all of our bridal beauty. She's a dream to work with and truly goes above and beyond to bring the most beautiful looks to life. When I tweaked my vision after my bridal trial, Ann rolled with my new idea and I ended up being unbelievably thrilled with my hair. Her makeup team was friendly, funny, punctual, and brought such a fun and calming energy to my house as we got ready. Loved having them from start to finish and would recommend Beauty by Ann Krause to anyone!

Truly one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. I booked Ann & her team for my bridal party, which included folks with multiple skin tones/concerns, hair texture and length, and different genders. Everyone looked phenomenal! Ann is extremely responsive & very organized. I specifically remember booking her, and not needing to worry about getting ahold of her, her + the team understanding my vision, etc. Thank you, Ann, for everything!

Working with Ann and her team was a dream! Each of them made me and my bridal party feel gorgeous and fulfilled each of our requests. Special shout-out to Tilly, who did my make-up, I felt amazing and it was the natural look I wanted for my big day. Ann went above and beyond to help me with my hair style and accessories. If you are looking for hair and make-up stylists for your wedding in Chicago, seriously look no further!

Ann and her team are absolute rockstars! From start to finish the process of working with Ann was seamless. Her communication was clear and consistent. She answered any and all questions. She accommodated changes. She professionally talked me through the many (very different) inspiration photos I showed her. And she flawlessly executed my wedding day look! Ann and her team made me and my girls look and feel absolutely beautiful and I would choose them a million times over!
