Professional stylists; Great for on-site services for larger groupsFinding on-site hair and makeup services for my June 2019 wedding in Grand Bend, ON for myself, 6 bridesmaids and 2 mothers, was the most challenging vendor selection of my wedding planning process. I don't wear much makeup, spend no time on my hair, and had no idea how to plan for this aspect of the day. After looking at many vendors, I chose AlyCat. Their large team of professionals was able to accommodate our group and travel to our location. The trial was very helpful in getting my minimalist, clean and simple look right. On the big day, they were very professional, arriving on time, bringing all their own equipment and quickly working through our group. I would have liked them to take a bit more leadership - assigning the order of the girls, clearly communicating timelines, etc. - but it all worked out. My only regret was that after spending so much time getting my look just right during the trial I didn't pay much attention on the day of, and found my hair was actually a bit different than the trial. By the time I noticed, it was too late. These professionals do so much hair and make-up you really have to take ownership of your look and provide clear directions, ideally in a picture, if you have a specific style in mind. A good reminder to any future brides out there! Nevertheless, I was very satisfied with AlyCat's work overall and, although I had my own distractions/stresses, they made my girls and our mom's look like super stars, which is what really matters.[Photo credit: Raw Footage Photography]
We used Alycat Makeup & Hair Artistry for my engagement photos as well as for our wedding day.Last March, my sister and I did a hair and makeup trial with Alice and Thyda and I was impressed by their professionalism and their friendly demeanours. They did a fantastic job and listened to what your vision was.Thyda and Alice did my hair and makeup for my engagement photos and once again did a great job!Finally, Alice and Thyda as well as two additional AlyCat girls did hair and makeup for my wedding day for myself, 6 bridesmaids, mother of the groom, mother of the bride, and my mother’s two cousins.They arrived on time bright and early and completed everyone in a timely manner.Everyone looked fantastic and their hair and makeup held up extremely well all day!Would highly recommend their services!

Five stars! My experience with AlyCat was amazing. Jenn did our hair for my wedding (8 girls!) and did an amazing job on all of us. Not only that, but she had the best most friendliest personality and everyone loved working with her. She created unique styles on all of us girls and everyone was happy with their end result. I highly recommend!!!!! Thanks Jenn!
AlyCat Was so great to work with, very fast responses and made my bridesmaids and I look so beautiful for our wedding! We had Cara and Amy and they did a phenomenal job. Thanks again!
Kayla was my MUA for my wedding this past weekend and made my mom and I look gorgeous. Thank you Kayla and AlyCat for your skill and professionalism! �
Absolutely amazing! Made my wedding that much more special. The hair and makeup styles were perfect for both the bridesmaids and myself and every single lady working here is professional and absolutely a joy to have. Definitely recommend for all people!
Jen and Alice are amazing to work with! These beauty magicians made me - this tired looking mama - look HAWT for my shoot! They listened to what I want, helped me picked the best look for what I need, and transformed me from a caterpillar to a butterfly! You cannot go wrong with them!
Everything about AlyCat is fantastic! I got married last weekend and AlyCat came to the hotel for hair and make up for myself, my bridal party, and my mom. Jenn did my hair and Kayla did my make up. I cannot say how amazing the entire experience was. Right from the planning stages, they were professional and very responsive. We showed the team some ideas we had from photos online and they exceeded our expectations. I loved how natural and elegant my hair looked. My make up was perfect too! I especially loved how I didn't have to worry about adjusting my hair or retouching my make up as the day went on. The morning of the wedding is typically a stressful time but the AlyCat team was early, made us feel relaxed, and had fun! It honestly felt like we had known them for years! <3 Thank you, ladies!!
I was so pleased with the make up services! Alice did an amazing job on the make up for me and my bridal party. The team was very professional & lovely to work with!! I highly recommend the Alycat team!! ��
AlyCat was amazing! They were so easy to work with and my hair and makeup looked so beautiful on my wedding day. My MOH and mom loved them as well. I really liked that they were able to come to my house- it made it a lot easier not having to run around the morning of the wedding. They were professional and punctual. I’m very happy I chose them!
We had Jen from AlyCats come out to our hotel to do our hair for our wedding. She made myself and my wedding party look amazing. She was professional and fun. The perfect fit for a wedding day!
Alice and Jenn, and the rest of their team, were amazing to work with. They did all the hair and makeup for my bridal party on January 5th, and everyone looked stunning! They gave the girls and myself exactly what we wanted and were so professional. The hair and makeup lasted for the entire wedding night, even when taking photos in the snowy weather! I cannot speak more highly of this team of artists!
If I could give more than 5 stars I would! They are everything you would expect a top notch professional to be: punctual (early, in fact), knowledgable, patient with questions, skilled. But they are so much more! The are kind, friendly and personable. Having them do hair and makeup for a myself, 14yo, 13yo, and 9yo, is no easy feat (never mind the crying baby running in and out of the room!), but they pulled it off like it was no biggie! They were so lovely with the girls and made everyone, including a make-up novice like myself, feel incredibly relaxed and comfortable. I wasn't sure what to suggest for up-do's for the girls but Jennifer spoke with the girls, got a sense of what they liked, and instantly went to work creating such beautiful and individual hairstyles for them. Alice did such a stunning job with the makeup, making the girls look glamorous but age-appropriate. I was so pleased with my own hair and makeup and received so many compliments that night. They worked so efficiently that we were done on time and all in the comfort and ease of our own home. The only problem I have is now coming up with more reasons to have them return! Thank you ladies- you were amazing!!!
4 years of love, and many more to come! Thanks for always turning me into a diamond for my photo shoots / events ��
I would choose Samantha Lynn over and over again. I never dreamed of feeling as beautiful as I did on one of the most important days of my life. Being an older bride, I feared not feeling gorgeous. When I took the first look in the mirror on my day, that was the last of my fears. My new fear was how much I'd cry when my soon to be husband got his first look at me �
I was recommended AlyCat MUA by a friend from the salon we booked for our wedding. And my goodness Alice did not disappoint. Alice was not only an amazing make up artist on our day but a great support and such a kind soul. I am so thankful for her and all she did for us. Thank you Alice for making us all look beautiful on my special day. I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and amazing work!
Alycat makeup was one of the best decisions I could have made in planning my wedding. They showed up at our hotel ready to go and did hair and makeup for me, my mom, sister, and three bridesmaids. Everyone was happy with their hair and makeup and we had a great time hanging out with Jen and Alice. Our hair and makeup looked great all day. They timed everything perfectly, they were laid back, and truly knew how to handle a hotel suite full of people on a very chaotic morning. Thanks ladies!!!
If I could give 10/10 stars I would. This one goes out to my dream team! I had the pleasure of working with this outstanding group of women for my wedding last Saturday. From the day I booked to the day I said "I Do" these ladies were a dream to work with. They made my entire bridal party look absolutely gorgeous and were so fun during our morning shenanigans! I literally felt like the most beautiful version of myself that day and the attention to detail was incredible, even late into the night I still looked flawless! (Even after sweating all damn day) I HIGHLY recommend Alycat for any occasion you want to look and feel your absolute best!! Love you guys!!!���
I had such a wonderful experience with AlyCat for my wedding hair and makeup along with my bridesmaids and mother! Jenn and Emily were fantastic, right on time and so calming and efficient. They had everything under control right from the get go and really helped set the tone for the morning of just having a great time and getting all dolled up. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone for any occasion <3
I am super picky with my hair and Thyda did an amazing job on not only me but my five bridesmaids! It was better than I even imagined. Keeping in mind too my hair is frizzy and sometimes difficult to style so the fact she did such an amazing job on me says volumes!! Definitely recommend.
Had my makeup done by the AlyCat herself...She left me flawless for the event! She has a nice touch, great personality and award winning style.
Thank you to Alice and Jenn for making me feel and look beautiful on my wedding day! You guys rock!!
They were awesome for my wedding. We didn't do trials as I was from out of province and I just showed them images and they were off doing their thing. I loved the fact that they dressed nicely. They knew they would most likely be in wedding photos and dressed appropriately. Would recommend again and again
Alice did an amazing job on my makeup and hair (Mandy did my beautiful up do). I was amazed with the talent these ladies displayed. In an hour these ladies transformed me into perfection! My graduation was perfect... And my makeup and hair lasted into the early morning hours of dancing and drinking after grad! My bf was drooling all night.. Thank you so much ❤
Alice is AMAZING!!! Super talented and such a great woman. I'm really fussy about my image and what I want my shoots to portray and instantly felt at ease within minutes of meeting. So worth the drive to London! And my pictures we phenomenal. Can't wait to work with ya'll again
Loved my hair and make-up for my wedding on Oct 18 of last year. I've had so many complements! The girls were great, fun and super creative. I would definitely recommend them and use them again for another event.
Great bunch to work with and kept everyone on time -and more importantly beautiful work !! - photographer and owner of Your Life in Stills photography 🙂
Well, from what I have seem, it is art. Beautiful work.

Amazing blend of style, professionalism, and personality. Even after my hair was done I didn't want to leave.
Love alycat. I can say I knew her when.
Ha Mi Deh
Loved both mine and my girls hairstyles! Mandy and Thyda did an amazing job and Alice was so easy to work with. I loved that they come to you rather than you needing to go out...especially during our blizzard weekend wedding in December! Would and will recommend them to anyone.
