On January 6, 2018, I married the love of my life. There are so many people to thank for making that day the most perfect day, but two people who went over and made it the most amazing experience we’re Melissa & Maria. I met them in 2015 at a bridal show and felt like we just clicked! They did my makeup and glammed me up for my engagement shoot in July of 2016 and have been there every step of the way! They are both so passionate about their job, true professionals and always went over and beyond to make sure I was okay! The day of the wedding they came with a team and rocked it! 15 girls got their hair and makeup done, they stayed on point with time and made everyone look and feel absolutely amazing. It has been a month and I still get texts and calls from my bridal party and family complimenting their professionalism and art (because that is exactly what they are- artists!) I would recommend these two over and over again. There were times I would text them out of nowhere talking about hair and makeup and being indecisive and they of course kept me calm reminding me that whatever I decide it will be perfect & it was. I can’t thank them both enough for the few years working with them and of course my wedding day. They are truly the best.

I worked with Maria for hair and Melissa for makeup and both were amazing, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a team that is reliable, listens to what you want (and don't want) and executes it to perfection. I did a trial with both and on my actual wedding day, they recreated the look exactly as we had planned. In addition they were early to both the trial and the big day which really helped calm my nerves. They also helped with planning the timeline for all of the bridesmaids, mothers and me to get ready and were were available for all of my random questions. They were a real joy to have around and maintained their professionalism throughout. The additional assistants they had to help prep were also great. Through my experience, I have no doubt in my mind that Maria and Melissa are the perfect duo to do your hair and makeup on your big day. If you don't want to have a worry at all, then choose them, they are the best!

I used Melissa (makeup) and Maria (hair) for my 6/30/17 wedding. Both girls were a true pleasure to work with. Maria is SO easy to work with. She loves to play around with hairstyles. I'm so indecisive and after my trial I still wasn't 100% sure what I wanted. The day of the wedding she made me feel so worry-free even though I had no idea what look I was going for. Working with Melissa was just as easy. From the day she helped me with a makeup application (at the very last second!) to my trial and finally my wedding day, working with her was always easy, fun and relaxing. She is so beyond sweet and definitely flexible not only with dates and coming to you but with changing anything at all you don't absolutely love. It was a pleasure to work with these girls and I hope I get to do so again in the near future!

I used Renee & Maria for makeup and hair (respectively) from Metamorphosis for my 5/12/17 wedding. I met them both at a showcase at Chateau Briand which Metamorphosis is a recommended vendor for, as well as my venue, The Fox Hollow. Not only were they super sweet and informative, but what intrigued me is that the money I would spend on trials would go towards my final balance which I really appreciated. They came to my apartment before my engagement shoot for my first trial. They were both so prepared and listened to my ideas and preferences. When I eventually changed my mind about both my hair and makeup, they both adjusted everything until I was happy with everything for my second trial the day of my shower. The day of my wedding they came to my moms house and did all 4 of my girls hair & makeup beautifully, and Renee even agreed to do my mom’s makeup last minute when she decided she didn’t want to do it herself (and after seeing what an amazing job she did on everyone else!). Maria took the time to teach my bridesmaids how to change and pin my headband before the reception because I wanted to change after the ceremony. They both made sure I felt beautiful and exactly how I wanted to look, and of course we all had such a great morning and so much fun getting ready with them! I would highly recommend both of them!

I booked a trial with Melissa (makeup) and Maria (hairstylist) for my save-the-date photos in August. Both ladies were very responsive prior to the trial. Melissa did a fantastic job with my makeup, I have never looked more amazing (until my wedding day of course)! I was a bit hesitant with my hair since not many people know how to manage it, but Maria was pure perfection! Not only did they do a great job, but I felt like I was with hanging out with friends. They even wanted me to send them pictures during my engagement photo shoot!

I got married in July, Melissa and Maria arrived promptly to my hotel room to begin working on my large bridal party. My bridal party included 11 bridesmaids, MOH, mom, mother-in-law, and even my sister-in-law who was not part of my bridal party. They made each and every girl feel and look absolutely glamorous! Melissa made my makeup look naturally beautiful, I don’t think I have ever felt more amazing and confident as I did the day of my wedding. Maria placed extensions in my hair, styled it, and made my hair look fabulous! Since we all got ready early in the morning for pictures, Melissa and Maria came to the venue before my ceremony and retouched my makeup and hair as well as for my entire bridal party-how awesome are they?!

Melissa and Maria not only did an amazing job with makeup and hair, they also are so easy to work with, are the sweetest duo ever, and their positive vibe/energy made the whole experience beyond perfect. I cannot rave enough about their amazing job-every bride should feel the way I did on my wedding day and I owe a big part of that to Melissa and Maria! I even still keep in touch with them-love these girls so much! #ItsAnMthing

I had the great pleasure of sharing my most special day with Melissa (makeup) and Maria (hair). THEY WERE A W E S O M E. I literally felt like I was a celebrity with a glam squad. When it came time for my first look I for sure "WOW'D" my husband. He was in awe of how beautiful I look ,and always is :)...but this was special! From the trial to the big day Maria and Melissa paid attention to my requests and made sure I felt like a beauty queen on my wedding day. They were there earlier at the venue and were all set up by the time I got there. I chose to have them stay until my reception to change my look a little from ceremony to reception and they were so awesome about it. They were so efficient and quick and I didn't miss a beat of my day all the while feeling fabulous!! I STRONGLY recommend this duo to any bride who knows how important her whole "look" is. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Thank you so much Melissa & Maria. You guys are truly talented at what you do!

One of my childhood friends Maria has an incredible talent for doing hair. She really is an artist. I contacted her when I got engaged and asked her if she was available the day of the wedding. She informed me that she was working for Metamorphosis and was available on my date. She recommended using a make-up artist she works with named Melissa. Both Maria and Melissa came to my house and did a make-up and hair trial for our engagement photos. When it came to my hair, Maria could do no wrong. I loved everything she did. Melissa was so easy to work with. I have never had professional make-up done before and I had never had fake eyelashes either. They both transformed me. I wish I could have them help me get ready everyday.

The day of my wedding was no different. Maria is a perfectionist. She spent time fixing every strand of hair. I received so many compliments on both my hair and make-up. I couldn't have been happier. Thank you so much girls!

I used Melissa for makeup and Maria for hair! These two ladies did a perfect job for my wedding and I absolutely love them!!!!!!!! I would recommend both of them to everyone and anyone! They made my dreams come true and made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world! Thank you Metamorphosis Nwe York!!!!!!

Christina

I worked with Metamorphosis New York for my wedding day make-up and hair! 2 of their trainers, Melissa Polito (make-up) and Maria Vlantis (hair) were assigned to me and I did a trial with them. Both Melissa and Maria were great to work with, had bubbly and outgoing personalities and I felt immediately comfortable with them! We tried a few different looks during my trial, and I was satisfied with what we had chosen at the end. On the wedding day, my make up was flawless and I had so many compliments from the guests. Melissa and Maria meticulous, punctual and awesome to work with! I highly recommend them to any future bride!

Jessica

Melissa (makeup) and Maria (hair) exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend them! I was able to meet with them, both (at my own apartment), for a hair and makeup trial--and then again, when I changed my mind and wanted to try something different! What a dynamic duo! They were amazingly flexible, and did a great job of making me feel comfortable and confident in regards to my wedding day. We tried a few different looks, and they both were more than happy to accommodate any requests. Melissa even traveled to my parents house in NJ to give my mother a makeup trial, and in a way, became part of the family during the few months before the big day. In addition, we were in contact quite often before the wedding day to coordinate logistics around a time-line and options for different members of the bridal party.

The actual "day of" would not have run as smoothly if Melissa and Maria were not there. They arrived ahead of time to set up their tools and began on schedule. They even finished the bridal party ahead of schedule! When we arrived at the venue, they went above and beyond just hair and makeup. Besides from everyone looking flawless, they helped me get into my dress, addressed any needs I had during photographs (brought me a glass of water and napkins to stand on so my heels would not get dirty), and were ready for hair and makeup touchups. Maria even took amazing pictures of the day, and sent them to me to share with my family! They really did a great job of putting everyone at ease, and I can honestly say that the day would not have been as special without them there.

Overall, I highly recommend Maria and Melissa! I just wish I had an excuse to work with them again!

Samantha

Maria and Melissa are the dream team of makeup/hair. They are incredibly talented at what they do and make you look/feel absolutely beautiful and radiant on your special day! They are so professional and a pleasure to work with. They make everything so easy with how organized and responsive they are, which is so important when you have so many things to plan! They are extremely accommodating and will try as many looks on you as possible during your trial until you stle on the perfect one! And even if you make last minute changes the day of, they roll with it like it was the original plan all along. Not only are they talented and wonderful at what they do, you will not find a pair of makeup/hair artists that could be more kind, sweet, and amazing human beings. They make you feel so special and really build up your confidence on the most important day of your life and they will leave you smiling from ear to ear. If you are in search of a team of hair/makeup artists to make you look stunning for any occasion, then you MUST use Maria and Melissa, you have no other choice! I can't thank you both enough for all you have done for me and my girls during my wedding planning year. You both are simply the best and it shines through inside and out.

I have met Melissa Polito at a wedding expo show at Chateau Briand in 2016 and her friendliness, helpfulness, hospitality and professionalism was outstanding. Working with her over the past few months and especially on my wedding day she was amazing. She is an amazing woman inside out. Would recommend her and her staff any day. A job well done. Thanks for making me, my matron of honor and my bridesmaids extra beautiful on my wedding day on June 24, 2017. My girls were very pleased with her work. Outstanding job!!!!

Kristin

My wedding was in November and there is just amazing things I could say about Melissa and Maria! From booking with them to the trials to the actual wedding day there was no worry on my mind about how everything was going to come out. Melissa knew my skin and how I like my make up to look she had given me some advice about adding a little bit more to my eyes for pictures and she was completely right. She did everything and more! Maria who did my hair was amazing. I can be very picky on how my hair is and she nailed it. During the trial I was really unsure how I wanted it to be and we did about 3 to 4 different styles and each time she was on top of it. The biggest thing I can say about these two wonderful ladies is how sweet and kind they were with my family and the girls on the day of my wedding. On the day of my wedding we added an extra girl to get hair and make up and they didn’t blink an eye and it was no problem to them which was a breath of fresh air. These girls worked so hard to make my day so special. They honestly went above and beyond what I thought. I don’t think I can thank them enough because to this day they made me feel like a princess with how I looked.
