FIVE star reviews from REAL brides who experienced Signature Shelley from the start.


LAURA I. 


Shelley traveled to NYC for my wedding in Brooklyn last June. Prior to my wedding date, she spent time with me trying out different hair styles and updo's until we found my perfect look. She was such an important part of my wedding day. She arrived early, helped get me settled and made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world. I wore my hair half-up for the ceremony and then she quickly did an updo for my reception. It was exactly how I wanted to look on my wedding day! I cannot express enough my gratitude to her for making me feel so special and beautiful and just for being such a fun, professional and sweet person. I would recommend her to everyone! She is a truly talented artist and wonderful person to work with.

WORLD CLASS!!! Shelley has perfected the art of client consultation. At the beginning of every appointment for the past 7 years, Shelley has sat down with me and discussed how I'm feeling about my hair - cut, color, health, and direction for the current appointment. Eachvisit leading up to my wedding was no exception. Shelley took my blonde hair to a whole other level to ensure it was the perfect color and length. She styled my hair on my wedding day (twice) and both looks were perfection - beautiful waves for the ceremony and a gorgeous ponytail for the reception. My bridesmaids were thrilled with their updos too, and repeatedly commented that Shelley absolutely nailed each of their individual looks. In addition to her talent, Shelley is a wonderful person - professional, fun, kind, hilarious, and she always puts the client first. You will not regret selecting Shelley as your stylist!

When my fiancé and I got engaged, I knew right away I wanted to work with Shelley. Beyond doing amazing work, Shelley is personable, flexible, incredibly creative and understanding. She isn’t just talented at going through the motions: Shelley truly takes it to the next level in being able to deliver for her clients no matter how unusual the circumstances. So much so, in fact, when we decided to get married in Italy instead of Michigan (!), she STILL took on the daunting task of helping me hair prep from 5,000 miles away. To add a layer of complexity, I learned that in my husband’s family there was a long-standing tradition of my mother in law doing every bride’s hair on their wedding day. But again, Shelley didn’t flinch. Instead, she helped me plan and prep months in advance (extensions, color, cut) AND did a hair trial with me and my mother-in-law to ensure we were all on the same page in terms of technique and final product. Having Shelley on hand to help me navigate a potentially sticky situation made all the difference. My requests were likely unusual compared to her “typical” client :) but she never once was anything other than positive and helpful. Her expertise gave me confidence in the entire process, making one thing on my check list seamless, even in a time when several other planning aspects weren’t. Local or destination, if you are considering Shelley for your own wedding, I could not recommend her more!

I can't say enough amazing things about Shelley... She is an amazing artist and an even more impressive person. As an out of town bride she made my life so much less stressful! I met with Shelley twice before my wedding to go over what I wanted - soft, romantic, curls.. not tooperfect and I wanted to look like MYSELF. Shelley listened to every word I said and really heard me. I don't know how else to put it - she just GOT it. We also went over recommendations for extensions. Shelley does amazing work with hair extensions and I wanted to get them so badly. I've honestly never seen such beautiful hair - she is a miracle worker! However, since I was out of town and going on my honeymoon right after we settled on clip ins, which she cut and blended for me perfectly on my second visit with her. On the big day it was such a relief to see Shelley's face at my parent's house where I was getting ready. I felt like a friend was walking into the room. Her calm and confident demeanor was SO REASSURING. But not only that, Shelley had taken NOTES on everything we had gone over the past two visits. Notes you guys! Who does that? An absolute professional who aims for perfection 100% of the time - and that's Shelley. She had spent the months leading up to my wedding looking at my Instagram photos just to get my vibe right. Shelley made me feel like the most beautiful version of myself imaginable and not to mention she also did 5 of my bridesmaids and my mother's hair impeccably. I could not recommend Shelley more highly. She is the BEST! I only wished I was local and could see her for all my hair needs. Don't hesitate to book Shelley for your big day!!

Shelley was such a huge part of my big day, making sure my hair was absolutely perfect from the trial to the wedding day! She made me feel so special, how a bride should feel! She took her time during both my trial session and on the wedding day and did such an incredible job.Both her and her partner made all of my girls hair look so amazing as well, coming up with so many creative hairstyles for each of them. I would highly recommend Shelley for her incredible talent and sweet personality, and can't wait to return to her for other hair services!

When I first met Shelley, I had already met with 2 previous "contenders" for wedding hair. I am EXTREMELY picky and not afraid to admit it. I needed the beautiful hair I was envisioning PLUS the bridal experience because your wedding day is all about you. The other 2 contendershad zero interest in what I was looking for or my comcerns if my thin hair would be able to pull it off. Shelley takes her time and is very thorough. You do not feel rushed like in a salon because she works for you, the client, and not a salon. In fact she is my new permanent stylist because after my up do trial I had enough confidence to allow her to dye my hair. If you decide to have Shelley as your bridal stylist you will feel like the bride you have always imagined. Also, she came to us so it was super easy on wedding day. We didn't have to travel anywhere. Book her now!

Shelley has done my hair for over 10 years now, so when it came to my wedding she was obviously my first choice. Without hesitation Shelley was willing to travel to a suburb of Chicago for my wedding. She did exceptional work on all my bridesmaids, mother of the bride and of course myself! She is professional and extremely hardworking, and is a perfectionist when it comes to making your hair beautiful and you happy. When I was stressed she kept me calm and assured me she would stop at nothing to make my hair exactly what I wanted it to be. Signature Shelley was the best and easiest decision when it came to my wedding. If you want a truly expectional service from start to finish choose her!

Shelley did the hair for my friends wedding and when I saw how amazing she was I knew I wanted to use her for mine. When you first meet Shelley you can tell that she really loves what she does. She has so much positive energy and she really makes you feel comfortable. She listens to what you want, gives great advice, and delivers beautifully. She even colored my hair before the wedding and it looked so amazing that I made my next appointment! I am so excited to have met Shelley and to now be a client for life!! She is seriously the best!!

Shelley by far exceeded my expectations as a hair stylist for my wedding! I went through multiple hair trials with different stylists and immediately fell in love with Shelley when I was recommended to her. Not only is she incredibly talented, but she makes you feel socomfortable and will make certain your hair is perfection! Her personality is contagious and she makes your wedding vision come true of what you've always wanted to look like. I had so many people compliment me on my hair and ask for Shelley's contact info for their wedding. Being the super picky person I am, I recommend Shelley hands down! She's a perfectionist and will make sure you look beautiful on your big day!

I was lucky enough to have Shelley of Signature Shelley do my hair for my wedding day and I was sooooo incredibly happy that I did. Having her there made my wedding day complete. I don't think I would've felt nearly as beautiful if I didn't have her there to perfect my hair do and make sure that it lasted the entire night. Shelley started doing my hair several months before the wedding. She was very active in helping me nail down the exact color and style I wanted on my wedding day. We did a trial run where we ran through several options and discussed what was going to be the most conducive for my August wedding. She has so much experience that I knew I could totally trust her judgement on products and style. Not to mention, she took the time to really get to know my hair - so she knew that it would likely get frizzy and messy if we didn't use the right smoothing techniques. When it finally came down to the wedding weekend, Shelley was super flexible and sweet when it came to scheduling and traveling. We got married on the South West side of the state and so Shelley was able to travel to us AND bring a second friend to help with bridesmaids' hair. She was so gracious about doing so and complemented me a ton on the location, which was super sweet. On the day of our wedding, Shelley was punctual, enthusiastic and so ridiculously fun to have during such an exciting yet stressful time! She not only nailed my hair, she also did a stunning job with my mom, mother in law and bridesmaids. She kept me calm and relaxed the whole time and really added to the entire atmosphere of the whole morning. She stuck around to help me get my veil in after I got dressed and was very thorough in making sure my hair was exactly what I wanted it to be. She was even kind enough to congratulate me the morning after and make sure I was happy with my hair throughout the entire event :) I honestly don't think I could rave enough about Shelley. Since the wedding, I have religiously gone to her for my cuts and color because I trust and love her so much! If you're looking for someone you can trust that will do an outstanding job (and keep you smiling the entire time), Shelley is your girl!
