"Amy Gerber has been my stylist and dear friend ever since I moved to New York City four years ago. When my boyfriend proposed to me and we decided to have our wedding back home in Portland, Oregon, I knew that I had to have Amy with me for my big day. I had a stylist in Oregon whom I had gone to for years prior to moving, but she was no Amy. Amy is truly a visionary and an artist in what she creates. Her passion for her craft shines through in how fabulous she makes her clients look and feel. I not only wanted Amy to do my hair and make up for the wedding, but I also asked her to do the hair of all five bridemaids and my soon to be husband.

As weddings go, they are not without there moments of stress. Amy arrived in Portland almost 8 hours late after having 2 flights cancelled and multiple delays due to the weather in New York. When Amy finally arrived, her luggage did not. As I was panicking over the fact that all of Amy's supplies were 3,000 miles away and the wedding was a day away, Amy remianed calm and focused. She called beauty supply stores and schools around the area to see where she could procure all she needed and  then took a cab around a city she had never been to before. Amy's proffessionalism, coolness under pressure, and persistance saved my big day and my nerves.

Amy spent the entire day of the wedding with our bridal party in the hotel. She got all six of us ready and then met my fiance in the lobby to do his hair as well. As if all that wasn't enough, she then touched me up prior to the ceremony and throughout the reception. Everyone commented on how amazing my hair looked and how perfect it went with the style of my dress. I felt and looked amazing that day thanks to Amy."

"For my wedding last year Amy did my hair, my mom's hair and my bridesmaid’s hair.  I brought Amy a few pictures of ideas and she incorporated them all and added her own unique twist.  My hair turned out absolutely amazing…better than anything I could have imagined.  My mom and my bridesmaids were also thrilled with how their hair turned out.

 
Amy was truly wonderful on my wedding day.  I really can’t imagine what I would have done without her. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she’s sweet, funny and just lovely to be around.  As a bride full of nervous excitement, it was wonderful to have her around making me laugh, keeping me calm and making sure everything went smoothly.  After our ceremony she ran around with me while we took pictures, helping to carry my train, fixing my veil and making sure my hair was perfect.  She even stayed with me until after our pictures were done so she could be there to take off my veil and make sure my hair and head piece stayed perfectly in place.  Any bride would be lucky to have her with them on their special day."

"From the our first contact, Amy was a pleasure to work with. I really appreciated all of her help coordinating a trial with her and a makeup artist, and ensuring that we found the exact hairstyle I was looking for.  She did an amazing job on my hair and for everyone in the bridal party. I felt so glamorous, and my hair looked just as incredible at the end of the night as it did in the morning!  I go so many compliments on my hair throughout the night! Thanks to Amy, my wedding preparations were a joy, free of stress and worry. Amy's sense of humor and talent as a stylist kept everyone at ease. I can't thank her enough. 

I'm still planning on thanking you with a card... I've just been very slow with the thank you cards! I really do appreciate all of your hard work! Hope you're doing well."

"Amy did an incredible job on my hair and she was a true pleasure to work with. From the time of the trial to the wedding day itself, she was very helpful, friendly, and professional. On the morning of the wedding, her sense of humor and calm nature helped to foster the relaxed environment I was looking for. Amy created the hairstyle I had dreamed about. I received numerous compliments throughout the night, and it looked just as great by the end of the evening. My bridesmaids and the mothers were also extremely happy with their hairstyles. I would recommend Amy to anyone."

"Amy was amazing in every way on the day of my wedding! She came to the venue, where I was getting ready in the morning and did my mom, sister and my hair and makeup. She did a phenomenal job on all of us. My hair and makeup was especially perfect, and I received so many compliments. Amy has a real talent for making a person look their very best. I do not usually feel pretty, but thanks to Amy, I felt beautiful on my wedding day. She made me look and feel like a princess! In addition, she also helped with my veil and dress throughout all the pictures leading up to the ceremony. Amy made sure my train and veil were always positioned perfectly. She went far and beyond what any other stylist/makeup artist that I know of would have done. She even stayed until after the ceremony for final touchups before post-ceremony pictures and the reception. I am so happy Amy did my hair and makeup on my special day, and I definitely highly recommend her."

"She is amazing! The week before my wedding I had my color touched up by my normal colorist and it was a totally different color than the one I have been getting for 5 plus years. Well, a friend of mine suggested I go to who she refers to as her "genius". I called this "genius" Amy up and thank god for her, she not only fixed my color, but improved it drastically. In addition, she gave me the style I have been after and she does makeup and brows on top of everything else. She managed to do all this for my wedding day on a weeks notice, while also providing me with a trial of hair and makeup. She was so amazing my entire bridal party and my mother-in-law used her. She never took a break and was smiling the entire time. I now have one person for cut, color, brows, and make-up instead of 4 different people. It is so much simpler now and cheaper. Her prices are extremely reasonable and she fits me into any time slot I ask for, and she even manages to get my products. This sounds crazy, but I don't know what I did without her before. I owe my old colorist a big thanks for that horrid hair color disaster."
