"Magnolia Artistry did an amazing job for our wedding as our makeup artists! They did a phenomenal job with every bridesmaids' makeup and listened to what styles and color palettes each individual girl wanted. My bridal makeup was spectacular as well! I received so many compliments throughout the night telling me how beautiful my makeup was. I can't recommend doing the airbrush makeup with them enough! They are responsive and prompt in their responses as well. Can't wait to hopefully use them again in the future for another special event! :) "


"I found Magnolia Artistry through their Instagram and couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome! Magnolia Artistry was accommodating for a last minute trial and wedding date (6ish weeks) — all prices were clearly communicated and the contract was concise. Magnolia Artistry answered all 713 questions I had and provided their professional input.
Chelsea did my airbrush bridal makeup and Zoe did my bridal hair and both were PERFECTION! The trial was beautiful and when it came to the wedding date, Chelsea welcomed a minor tweak to ensure I felt my best!
Perhaps most importantly, Chelsea and Zoe were very calm and patient when my dog had a minor problem and we had to make accommodations for him.
I will 1000% be returning to Magnolia Artistry for all hair and makeup event needs!"


"The ladies at Magnolia Artistry are fantastic! So sweet, yet so professional. They came to my house to do a trial run of my hair and makeup before my wedding. They made sure I knew that if I didn't like anything about my hair or makeup I could tell them because they wanted me to feel "perfect" on my big day- so sweet! :) On my wedding day, they showed up on time and got the job done in a timely manner and the makeup and hair looked better than I imagined. I would have no hesitations in booking them for your event."


"Magnolia Artistry was such a pleasure to work with. Chelsea and Zoe did a beautiful job on my bridal hair and make up, as well as hair and make up for members of my bridal party. They were great about matching inspo. pictures that were shown to them, while offering thoughtful suggestions as they worked. I wanted a few changes to my look between my trial and wedding day and they made them without ever missing a beat. I felt so beautiful in my final look and am incredibly grateful to Chelsea and Zoe. They are fantastic at what they do, as well as professional, communicative, prompt, flexible and such fun women with positive energy. I would highly recommend their services to anyone!"


"Magnolia Artistry did a wonderful job on the hair and make up services for me and my wife! They followed our requests and made us look perfect for our wedding day. Our hair and make up didn't fade throughout the Virginia humidity and dancing the night away...we may have worn it to brunch the next day lol. We were so grateful to find them and support a small business, they have reasonable prices and are easy to work with since they come to you!"


"I absolutely loved working with Magnolia Artistry for my wedding. They made everything super easy and stress free. I had never had professional hair or makeup done before but they took all that anxiety away with how sweet and professional they were. They both explained everything they were doing every step of the way. I highly recommend them and hope I have a reason to use them again in the future!"


"Magnolia Artistry was amazing! From the make up trial to my wedding day, everything was flawless. Chelsea made sure to listen to what I wanted and executed the makeup beautifully. I was so happy that everything stayed in place even through the wind and rain! Don’t hesitate to book them for their services, they won’t disappoint!"


Magnolia Artistry was so professional, prompt, and lovely. Sophia and Zoe are an amazing duo. They (and two others) were able to complete 10 full faces of makeup and hairstyles for my wedding day, all of which were perfect and held up all day. I was an out of town bride and Sophia opened up her own home for me to complete my trial. Highly recommend their services!



"If I could give 10 stars, I would! These ladies were AMAZING! We scheduled them for our wedding (hair and makeup of 7 people), and everyone looked and felt stunning! Their professionalism, flexibility, and talent are top notch, and they were a joy to be around as we got ready for the big day!"


"They were amazing! Hire them! They did hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids at my wedding location. I also got a trial run makeup and hair at my house. I LOVED my hair and makeup both times. I got a pretty complicated vintage updo (lots of curls but also lots of structure), and vintage glam makeup. They knocked it out of the park. My bridesmaids also got a variety of styles- blow-out to party pony to fancy updo and they were all happy! The ladies were very flexible, patient and kind. Highly highly recommend!!"



"A client of mine used Magnolia Artistry for her wedding day and they delivered!! The bride and her bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning for the big day and said they had a wonderful experience with the Magnolia team! I'd recommend reaching out to them for your wedding beauty needs!"


"Magnolia Artistry did a phenomenal job on my hair and makeup for my wedding as well as hair and makeup for my bridal party. They came to me for a bridal trial which gave me a chance to see the look prior to wedding day, they added my grandmother on for makeup the morning of my wedding and even did my 3 year old flower girls hair. They are all so friendly and their services are reasonably priced. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for these services!!"


"Magnolia Artistry is an amazing group of professional and talented women! They use the very best products and make sure they provide the best experience for you!"


"I’m so impressed with Magnolia Artistry VA! They were able to transform my every day look into something eye catching! I loved the whole experience! Chelsea Ireland was able to take my hair and eye color and use just the right techniques to make them pop. Zoe made my wild curls soft and professional. Highly recommend seeing them for any of your special events, photos, special memories, or just to treat yourself!"



"Chelsea has ALWAYS been my go-to makeup artist! I was thrilled to hear that Chelsea, Sophia, and Zoe were creating Magnolia Artistry Hair and Makeup because all three of them are incredibly lovely human beings and incredibly talented / gifted hair + makeup artists! They are also such a joy to be around! They take the time to truly listen to your hair and makeup dreams and then they ABSOLUTELY make those dreams come true! From the moment they arrive at your location they make you feel comfortable, special, and at ease! Whatever your event is - these three ladies will have you feeling and looking like the most beautiful, most confident, most radiant version of yourself! They have made me feel and look beautiful, confident, and radiant time and time again. I can’t say enough good things about them! I recommend them to everyone I know. You can stop searching for the perfect hair and makeup team - you did it! YOU FOUND THEM! Book Magnolia Artistry Hair and Makeup today! They are so very wonderful!"


"I've used Magnolia Artistry Hair and Makeup a few times now for bridal and event makeup and have LOVED how amazing it turned it out each time. They are a local Richmond women-owned business, and they truly care about making sure each client looks and feels beautiful. Hands down the best hair and makeup trained team for special occasions, weddings, etc. in the Richmond area! Chelsea is amazing!"


"Chelsea and I have been friends for years now and she has done my makeup on multiple occasions! I received Magnolia Artistry’s services most recently for portraits. Chelsea did a date night look that I was extremely happy with! My skin looked flawless and my eye makeup really made my eyes pop. Zoë styled my hair in a sleek, high pony and managed to make my fine hair appear to be very full and voluminous. They had me feeling beautiful and confident! I was so impressed with their work and how well my hair and makeup held up throughout the day/night. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to anyone looking for hair and makeup services for any occasion!"


"I cannot recommend the ladies at Magnolia Artistry enough! They did hair and makeup for myself, 4 bridesmaids, and 4 family members for my September wedding. Everyone was thrilled with how they looked, and their hair and makeup stayed perfect the whole day. I even had several guests ask me who did our styling at the reception.They were so helpful with everyone deciding on their looks, and we were ready with plenty of time before the wedding.

On top of that, they were so accommodating during the planning process. They really made my day special and made me and my favorite people feel absolutely beautiful!"


"My maid of honor and I enjoyed working with Sophia. She did a wonderful job on our makeup. She was also super flexible and graciously accommodated several last-minute changes. I would definitely recommend and book with Magnolia Artistry again."


"Zoe & Sophia did an AMAZING job. There was perfection in every detail and I am so grateful to have had them for my wedding day!"


"Couldn't have asked for better women to work with on my wedding day!

From the moment I started emailing Magnolia Artistry I knew I picked the right company to work with. We had a trial for the hair and make up for myself, and my daughter who was the flower girl. They took just as much time and effort with her look as they did with mine. My bridal party loved their hair and makeup, especially the airbrush makeup. I was worried my daughter's hair wouldn't stay up all night, because she doesn't sit still. I was assured that they would take care of that, and they 100% came through!! I have and will continue to recommend them to everyone."


"Amazing and accommodating. 

Magnolia Artistry made me feel like the most beautiful bride. They were so accommodating and helpful. I highly recommend them!"


"Easiest decision ever.

Magnolia Artistry showed much love and attention to my loved ones & myself with talented, and individualized care."


"Magnolia Artistry was a wonderful choice for our big day! From the mother's of the bride/groom, bridesmaids, to the bridal makeup, everyone looked and felt absolutely beautiful! On a 12 hour day of emotions, an outdoor ceremony, and a lot of dancing at the reception, the makeup held up and there was no need to reapply lips or anything. Sophia and Chelsea are so kind, and great to work with."


"I used magnolia artistry for my bridal make up. And I can say I have never felt more beautiful ! Their application was perfect, Chelsea was amazing on all 6 of my ladies. Use these ladies you won’t regret it!"



"Magnolia Artistry is truly amazing and choosing them for my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made. Chelsea did a phenomenal job on my bridal makeup as well as for our moms. She listened to exactly what we wanted in each of our looks, and we absolutely loved the partial lash application for a more subtle look.

The team is quick to respond, communicative, professional, flexible, and so sweet. Chelsea is super patient, fun to talk to, kind, and gave great advice on skincare products and a routine that really work. I cannot thank this incredibly talented team enough! 10/10 recommend - you will feel stunning and be so happy you worked with Magnolia Artistry!"


"Sophia did an amazing job with my makeup and the bridal party’s makeup. I would recommend Magnolia Artistry to any bride for their special day."


"Absolutely great at her job and so sweet! Highly recommend getting makeup done by Chelsea at Magnolia Artistry."
