Dede was fantastic! I had several ladies (bride, bridesmaids, moms) needing their hair done in a short period of time so Dede showed up at 6 am to get us started! Dede is incredibly organized - to help speed up the process, we all sent her pictures our hair preferences. Dede showed up with the pictures printed out and a rough timeline of whose hair would be done at specific times. It made the morning run so smoothly! I actually booked Dede a bit late so I didn't have time for a hair trial but it didn't matter - she took the pictures that i sent and beautifully recreated it to suit me! Everyone's hair looked beautiful and stayed in all throughtout the day! if you are looking for someone with positive energy paired with professionalism, Dede is your lady!
