LaDonna's Reviews

Our brides, clients, and collaborators are the sweetest!

We greatly appreciate your feedback.

"The best investment I made for my whole wedding was hiring Lashes & Lace to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. Sarah was so sweet and positive from the first time I contacted her and LaDonna is amazing at hair and makeup. LaDonna went above and beyond on my wedding day because as I sat in her chair stressing and crying she calmed me and made me laugh (and encouraged some champagne). I have never felt so beautiful I'm happy it was on my big day, my now husband was very blown away not to mention my sister couldn't look at me without crying! I am so lucky to have found Lashes & Lace because I can look back at my wedding day pictures and know how amazing I felt and how beautiful it was. I have a ton of wedding advice to give after the big day, as does ever other newly wed, the first thing I tell everyone is to hire Lashes & Lace!!!! I wish I could upload a picture, not to toot my own horn ;), to show how amazing LaDonna did!" - Casey L.



"Want to say Sarah Downs, LaDonna Stein w Lashes and Lace are amazing!!!!! HIGHLY recommend them for hair and makeup for any occasion!!!!!" - Sloan S.



“Ladonna was a dream to work with on my wedding. She was so much more than just a hair and makeup artist, she helped me plan the appropriate amount of time needed to get ready prior to the wedding and accompanied me to the venue to help me get dressed and put on my veil. We had a bridal trial and then a secondary trial when she did my hair and makeup for my bridal portraits. Ladonna also did the hair and makeup for my mother and sister in law to be and they could not have been happier. She is courteous, professional, relaxing to be around, and one of the best hair and makeup artists I have ever worked with. Would highly recommend for any event.” – Courtney F.



"Lashes & Lash went above and beyond for me on my wedding day. I met with Sarah and LaDonna for my bridal portraits a month before the wedding. I didn't have any idea what I wanted except that I wanted my makeup to just enhance my face. I didn't want to look overdone. The makeup was absolutely perfect. My hair was exactly like the pictures I showed as well. I was so happy with the result and even more happy when I got my bridal portraits back. Before the wedding Sarah made contact with me asking how my portraits came out and if I wanted to make any changes. The only thing I wanted changed was my lip color for the wedding. She went above and beyond to purchase me a different lip color and powder to last me throughout the night with it being a June wedding :) I've never had my makeup professionally done to compare them to anyone else, but I can say I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Lashes & Lace were so pleasant to work with and made all of my bridesmaids, my mom and me feel beautiful on June 14." - Katie C.



"Hey! Just wanted to let you know that my hair and make-up held up well for our portrait session in Paris :) We flew out of Dallas on Tuesday after the wedding, arrived in Paris early Wednesday morning, and I touched up my make-up and re bobby pinned my hair and teased it in the airport restroom, then we went straight to our session, lol. I was so glad the curls held :)" - Bethany



“Words can not express the gratitude I have for the ladies of Lashes & Lace! The ladies not only did my wedding make-up and hair but also my sister's wedding hair and make-up and man did they knock both weddings out of the ball park! At both weddings myself, my sister, and our wedding parties looked simply stunning and the tremendous job did not go unnoticed by our guests. We received compliments for many months after about how gorgeous our hair and make-up looked. The photos turned out incredible as well! Not only do these ladies know make-up and hair, but they are a blast to work with. They keep the wedding day jitters away with their fun and free spirits, you feel more like you're hanging out with friends than a vendor. Every bride I run into I tell them they MUST us L&L, so if you are reading this to determine your wedding hair and make-up vendor then search no more. . . You MUST use Lashes & Lace!!!” – Catherine D.



"The Lashes & Lace staff was extremely kind and truly care about their brides. They were extremely knowledgeable. They helped in not only getting my makeup done but preparing me before hand for the day. They gave me many suggestion on product that work with my skin. Lashes & Lace worked with my skin, my ideas, and my lack of knowledge to deliver the best packaged for my wedding day. I will be eternally grateful as I look back on these pictures over the years." - Anonymous Wedding Wire Review



"LaDonna Stein did a trial run for me on short notice, given my limited availability flying in to Dallas for a weekend to settle some prep work for my wedding (I live elsewhere). She consulted extensively with me about my vision and preferences, shared some inspiration photos, and took (and shared with me) photos of my trial-run hair and makeup as a reference for the big day. On the day itself, LaDonna did my mother's hair and makeup as well as my tattoo cover, hair, and makeup. Even though the start time was very early (5am!) she was her cheerful, professional, creative self, and worked wonders with the feedback we gave her on the spot. My hair turned out phenomenally and was a modern take on a typical bridal updo. She did a great job placing small flower accents. My makeup turned out beautifully. I asked for relatively bright color on my lids (purples and corals), and LaDonna made the entire look turn out simply elegant and stunning. She applied individual lashes and they lasted me a whole week on my honeymoon. I appreciated everything about LaDonna's services through Lashes and Lace, and Sarah Downs did a great job with correspondence about everything. Professionalism and talent! Two things you want for your special day." - Melanie B.



"LaDonna was more than helpful with everything on my wedding day. She did hair and makeup for myself and two of my bridesmaids (one of which now wants to use her for her own upcoming wedding). All of our hair and makeup turned out amazing and I have nothing but good things to say. It was drizzly on the day of my wedding and prior to the ceremony during pictures my hair got a little messed up from the rain. LaDonna fixed my hair and made it to where it didn't move during our rainy ceremony!! If I ever have an event that I need to look fabulous, I will call LaDonna! On another note Sarah helped schedule everything for me. She was so courteous, responded quickly, and made me feel important as both a client and a bride. I would highly recommend Lashes and Lace to anyone that wants to look and feel amazing." - Shayna D.



"Look no further!! Lashes & Lace are The Best!! I had my hair and makeup trial run for my wedding and I could not be more thrilled!! The team is so talented, I can't express how wonderful the entire process has been. From booking to actual is a breeze. I have no worries at all that my entire bridal party will have a blast and look stunning on my wedding day. Thank you so very much, Sarah, and the entire Team!! Big hugs!!" - DeLisa D.



“I worked with Sarah (makeup) and LaDonna (hair) for my trial run for my wedding--and it was truly a wonderful experience! They are both so much fun, so sweet, professional, and truly want to deliver a wonderful experience and product. They want you to feel 100% happy with how you will look on your wedding day, so immediately you feel at ease that you will love how you look. And the final look turned out great! I absolutely loved my hair and makeup. Afterwards I decided I wanted some smaller/fuller lashes, and Sarah let me know that she went out and purchased new lashes just for me. They are totally flexible and willing to work with you to make sure you are a happy bride :) I felt totally comfortable and I am very confident about how I will look and feel on my wedding day. How wonderful :)” – Kara K.



"I just did my hair and make-up trail run with Sarah and LaDonna. Now, I don't wear make-up save for the occasional mascara, so I had no idea what I wanted for a look for my big day. I left it completely up to Sarah and she did not disappoint. LaDonna did a great job of recreating my pinterest inspired hairstyle. Both she and LaDonna made my sister and me feel comfortable and at ease; the experience was fun and it truly felt like spending time with close friends. I kept saying I feel like a princess and that's exactly what a girl wants on her big day! Can't wait for the real thing" - Morgan H.



"I cannot express how amazing it has been working with Sarah from Lashes and Lace. Sarah has been so helpful and willing to work with me even during my worst wedding brain moments. I was so excited to do my trial run 4/22/2015 with LaDonna who I had never spoke to and she was so welcoming and sweet. I walked into LaDonna's shop a hot mess and walked out looking glamorous. LaDonna was super helpful in figuring out what look I am going for on the wedding day because I had no idea. I even had her do my full head of hair and when I didn't like it she said we can start all over without cringing. I am so happy I picked Lashes and Lace and look forward to seeing my Fiance's face when I walk down the isle!" - Casey R.



“LaDonna was amazing and she did such wonderful job on my hair and make up for the bridal portraits! She is extremely talented and super sweet, just a great person to be around when I was so stressed and anxious about the pictures! She understood everything I wanted it and if I wanted to change something for the actual wedding day, that it would be ok!!! Also I have to give props to Sarah for being so sweet, accommodating and efficient helping me get everything set up and walking me through the whole process! I would absolutely recommend them to everyone, I loved them!” – Andrea W.



"If you are looking to have your hair BEAUTIFULLY styled and have your make-up look like that of a celebrity then look no further! I was absolutely blown away with the incredible job that Sarah and LaDonna did for my wedding! Not to mention, they were incredibly flexible and understanding when I had to reschedule my trial run on rainy days (as I wanted to do my trial run on the same day as my bridal portraits outdoors). These ladies are incredibly talented, professional, easy to communicate with, prompt, fun, friendly, enthusiastic, I could go on and on! I am SO impressed with their services and will recommend them to every future bride I meet!" - Merinda M.



"Reasons Why I loved Lashes & Lace:

1.) Sarah is amazingly detailed and organized, quick to respond, and is a wealth of information! This is what originally set her apart from other make-up artists I looked for in the DFW area. I asked a lot of questions and she was great at making sure I had all the information I needed!

2.) They go above and beyond for their clients! Sarah helped me figure out a location for my bridal portraits! I wasn't sure about the outdoor location I was considering and she provided me with her honest feedback (but mentioned she was happy to accommodate whatever I decided). She provided some suggestions and I ended up going with one of them. Couldn't be happier I went with that option! All thanks to Sarah, I wouldn't have even considered it! Out of all of my wedding vendors, Lashes and Lace has THE BEST client/customer service!

3.) Flexible and greatly accommodating. She really worked with me on my bridal portraits timeline for hair and makeup and took a lot of consideration with scheduling my bridesmaids for my wedding day.

4.) Quick to respond. She is quick to get back to me and does a really great job of setting the expectation of when I will hear from her.

5.) Beautiful work! Sarah did a great job of making my make-up look flawless, taking my ideas and concerns into consideration. I love how it turned out! LaDonna did my hair and created, basically, a work of art on my head :) She is very talented and did a wonderful job collaborating and combining a few looks I was considering.7.) Reasonable Pricing. When looking for a make-up artist, it can be a bit of a sticker shock. I found that Lashes and Lace was the reasonable. Especially after my experience with them so far... totally worth it!

6.) Lovely personalities! Sarah and LaDonna were so warm and welcoming. They really did a great job of making it a fun and relaxed experience.

Sum it up - no need to look any further!" - Alicia F.



"I was extremely happy with how everything turned out. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing such a perfect hair and makeup team. If there is anything I can do to help you or LaDonna please let me know. I will definitely refer people to you when given the chance." - Jessica T.



"The morning of my wedding was rushed and early, but Sarah and LaDonna were prompt and efficient. They kept to my schedule for the day down to a tea and had everyone’s hair and makeup done with insane precision. LaDonna came ready for my newly added extensions and Sarah was able to cover up my wedding week breakouts (my usually oily, broken out skin looked FLAWLESS). I couldn’t have been happier with how my hair and makeup turned out on my wedding day! My hair stayed all day long and looked amazing in the process. My makeup was exactly what I had envisioned for my wedding day. I couldn’t have asked for better artists for my special day! Thank you Lashes and Lace!" - Kelly P.



"Ladonna from Lashes and Lace did my hair a makeup for my bridal shoot and she did better job than I could ever imagined!!!! I am 110% pleased and have no doubt she'll nail it on my wedding day! Fears and anxiousness-Gone! Thank you!!!!" - Brittany A.



"Everything was amazing. and thanx for everything, my makeup was amazing and everyone complemented me so much. Thank you for everything Sarah <3 Please give my regards to LaDonna, she did an amazing job!" - Sana Z.



"Working with Sarah and LaDonna at Lashes and Lace was an absolute joy! I seriously could not have asked for a better hair and makeup team for my wedding day. LaDonna was our selected artist for the day. She arrived on time to our hotel across town with all her needed equipment early in the morning. She acted happy and energetic to be with all of us. When each of the bridesmaids explained what they wanted for their hairstyles, she listened and took her time to make them all extremely happy. She timed all hairstyles and makeup applications perfectly so we could stay on schedule for the rest of the day. All bridesmaids’ hair, along with my makeup and hair stayed put for the entire day and through a long six-hour reception. LaDonna used high quality makeup and application techniques to last for hours. She was flexible and willing to make changes to my hairstyle and makeup when asked. Truly, I do not have anything negative to say about this company. If given the chance I absolutely would use Lashes and Lace again in the future! I am so thankful for Sarah and LaDonna’s hard work in making my wedding day so special!" – Jessica J.



"LaDonna was amazing to work with, she followed all the details I wanted and I was extremely happy with the finished look. She took time to talk me through each step to make sure I liked everything and was very knowledgable about the products used. My bridal portraits were perfect thanks to LaDonna. I can't wait for the wedding day!!!" - Lorena D.



"I loved LaDonna's work! She is definitely talented!!! Not to mention a beautiful sweetheart!!" - Debbie A.



"LaDonna Stein is one of the best makeup artists I have ever worked with. She not only is intuitive to your needs but also makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! I have never worked with someone so willing to try anything but also willing to give you her opinion. She is always on time, works efficiently, and makes sure you are thrilled with her work. LaDonna is the makeup artist I recommend to everyone!" - Megan E.



"LaDonna styled me for my engagement photos, and was PERFECT. I showed her pictures of what I had in mind (and some of what I did NOT want), and she picked up what I was aiming for right away. She took extra care to adjust the look to my coloring, hair texture, etc. I can't wait for her to work her magic again on my wedding day. Sarah, who runs the operation, is warm, quick to respond, and professional. I felt I was in good hands from the moment we spoke on the phone." - Lauren O.



"Impossibly grateful for LaDonna, who transformed my hair and face last week for a 2 day speaking engagement!! 8,000 live audience members, global live internet streaming AND three jumboscreens had nothing on her ability to make me feel beautiful inside and out. Never-mind the 4:30am call times we had two days in a row. Thank you from the bottom of my heart LaDonna, for all you did for me <3. I so hope to travel to Dallas and see you again!! And thank you too, Sarah, for your professionalism and ease of working with. WONDERFUL COMPANY!!" - Lindsay H.



"I reached out to Lashes and Lace back in late September for my wedding makeup and hair. I knew after one conversation with Sarah Downs that I needed to book with them. Sarah was very prompt at answering my questions, polite, professional and gave me a fair price. She selected for LaDonna to be my makeup and hair artist. I met with LaDonna to do a trial run for my wedding makeup and hair on December 15th. LaDonna took the time to review the questionnaire I submitted pertaining to my vision prior to us meeting. She has a wonderful personality, took her time and most of all surpassed all my expectations. I highly recommend using LaDonna for your special event you may have coming up!!" - Jessica T.



"LaDonna, It was great meeting you at Andrea & Micheal's wedding...I would definitely like to use you for MUAH in the future so don't be surprised if you get a phone call from me...Again, great job on her makeup and hair. I really love your work!" - Walter Afalla (Photographer)



"Ladonna and Lashes and Lace were very flexible. We negotiated a contract at the beginning of the week and they got me in for a trial Friday morning before my engagement photos. Ladonna looked perfectly put together (a good sign for a makeup artist!), and she walked me through the different ideas I sent her. That was great because I don't wear makeup, and I don't know a lot about it. I had a big blemish on my chin (worst timing!), but she covered it perfectly. She also recommended false lashes. I've worn fake lashes before for Halloween, and they were really uncomfortable. However, the ones she used were subtle and light. I didn't notice them at all, and they lasted all through the next day. :) When the photographer saw me that afternoon, she said, "Your makeup looks perfect! It's going to look so natural in the photos!" The makeup and hair lasted perfectly through an hour of photos in the afternoon sun and through dinner later that night, and I got tons of compliments from my friends. Thanks Ladonna!" - Nicole C.



"I got married in March after a short (4 months) engagement. Since we didn't have much time to plan, it was a daunting task to find reputable vendors that we could trust AND book for our date. I read about Lashes & Lace on a popular wedding blog and was immediately intrigued. I submitted an inquiry via their website, and the owner, Sarah, responded promptly. Sarah was incredibly helpful, informative, and supportive. She worked with my then fiancee and I to create a test run and day of package that worked perfectly for us. She was also very careful to accommodate our wish not to see each other between our sessions. Our stylist was LaDonna. She was an absolute joy! My wife does not typically wear makeup, and was very unsure of what she wanted. LaDonna was very patient and helpful in guiding her to a look that allowed my wife to feel both confident and like herself. I had more ideas of what I wanted, but most of my inspiration images did not mesh well together. LaDonna worked with me to create a makeup look and hairstyle that somehow incorporated all of my inspiration images and "feelings." I could not be happier. I felt absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day, and received tons of compliments on my hair and makeup. I would not hesitate to recommend Lashes & Lace, and LaDonna for any of your hair and/or makeup needs." - April K.



"Dear LaDonna,  Thank you so much for the amazing work you did for my wedding! The girls all looked beautiful, and I was beyond happy with my hair and makeup! But, you didn't stop there...You then continued on to help with the reception setup!! You went so far above and beyond any reasonable expectations that words can't completely express my sincere gratitude. You are a wonderful person and I feel extremely fortunate to know you." Love - Katie



"So I have soo much to rave about now that we are married....I feel like I have a ton of wedding advise for people and no where to spread it but I can definitely say that my best investment EVER was having LaDonna from Lashes & Lace Makeup and Hair do my hair and makeup, not to toot my own horn because it's really LaDonnas doing, holy CRAP I looked like a legit model on my wedding day." - Casey L.



"I met LaDonna Stein with Lashes & Lace at a boudoir photography event a good friend of mine put together back in January of 2011. After she did my makeup and hair for those photos, I decided that I had to figure out how to get her booked for my wedding in September. She is just simply amazing! I am a country girl who does not wear makeup or know how to do my hair. She made me feel like a princess on both occasions and I just love her and her work. Anytime someone asks me about recommendations for make-up and hair, she is always the first person I recommend. If you need someone to make you feel beautiful, LaDonna is your girl!" - Kaleese W.



"Sarah and LaDonna are amazing!! I came in with multiple ideas that they were able to merge into one awesome hair/make-up look for my wedding day! It was like they were reading my mind! They are a joy to work with, are extremely professional, and their work is flawless. My sister referred me to Lashes & Lace after she booked them for her wedding, and I referred one of my friends for her upcoming I guess you could say we are all very happy with the work provided by Sarah and her team!" - Rebecca B.



"I felt so privileged to have had Ladonna as my hair and make up artist for my wedding day! She, along with Sarah of Lashes and Lace made the entire process so easy for me, and I had confidence from the start that I had made the right decision. The professionalism, precision, and most importantly, the end result were top notch! I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life. LaDonna is a true artist in every way and is such a sweet person to be around as well. Ladies, if you want to achieve the look of your dreams for your wedding day, or any other occasion, LaDonna will exceed your hopes in creating exactly the look you desire!" - Andrea G.




"LaDonna Stein is so talented. Every time I've used her services for a special event or occasion. I am completely transformed by her artistry. I wish she could do my hair and makeup every day. On top of being so talented, she is kind and always very professional. I highly recommend her to anyone needing to look their very best for a special day." Kathryn H.



"I would first like to say how absolutely amazing Ladonna is. She spent so much time with me getting the hair and makeup just right. I've had other artists work on me in the past and she is by far the best I've ever had!! I was so impressed with her...My sister loved my makeup so much, she decided she wanted to have Ladonna do hers as well :)"


"I have been going to LaDonna Stein of Lashes & Lace Makeup and Hair for nearly 10 years. There are very few people who I let touch my face and hair. Being in a profession where appearance and upkeep counts, I trust LaDonna above all others and will go in hours early just to get her work. Her ability to make me feel like a million bucks without spending a million can be matched by none other. She is highly sought after and there is a reason. She literally is the best make up artist and hair artist a girl could ever need." - Angie W.



"I just completed my trial run and I couldn't be more please with LaDonna! She was AMAZING!!!! She spent so much time with me going over hair and make up ideas. I walked in clueless with what I wanted. She was extremely patient with me as we decided various options. She went out of her way to try various hair styles that would look best for my dress, face and makeup. She was so pleasant and upbeat during the whole process. You can tell she LOVES what she does by how excited and enthusiastic she gets over finding the right style for you. Oh, and the BEST part of all - she perfect for a bride that can be somewhat anxious and nervous about looking perfect on their wedding day. She was totally flexible and doesn't take anything personal. I'm a 100% confident that I chose the best makeup and hair artist for my wedding day." - Ashley K.



“You both (LaDonna & Sarah) were such a pleasure to work with and I will be recommending the both of you to all of my friends!!” - Alfi T.



"LaDonna and Kaia with Lashes and Lace Makeup were AMAZING when I visited them in Dallas for my makeup trial for my wedding! I knew exactly how I wanted to look, and they were more than willing to do exactly what I wanted, and change anything I asked to be changed. They did everything with no hesitation, and really enjoyed feedback which made things even better! I definitely recommend booking them for your big day!!!" - Madison J.



"If you are a bride looking for hair and make up on your big day look no further. Sarah with Lashes and Lace was very flexible in rescheduling my trial run twice! She was very prompt to respond to emails and very nice. Ladonna was INCREDIBLE! She is very easy to work with and will keeping working with you to get you the EXACT style of hair and make up you want. I felt amazing on our wedding day, make up and hair were flawless. The Lashes and Lace team (including LaDonna, Kaia, and Amber) took exceptional care of my bridesmaids and I. My bridesmaid all looked beautiful!!!! Lashes and Lace is worth every penny, AND they travel to you!!!! Big plus if you are getting ready at a hotel on your wedding day!" - Lacey C.



"Sarah and LaDonna were a pleasure to work with. We met for the trial run for my hair and makeup, and I looked better than I could ever have imagined (or let alone, have done myself). LaDonna added clip in extensions into my hair to help fill it out, and then did a beautiful half up hairstyle, which looked beautiful and romantic. Sarah's makeup on me was gorgeous. I felt like I should be walking down a read carpet. I would highly recommend Lashes & Lace for your wedding hair and makeup. I can't wait till my actual wedding day to have them help make me look my best!" - Tiffany W.



"Lashes & Lace just did a trial run for my upcoming wedding in Oct. I was in "studio" with LaDonna, Sarah, and Walter. They were all 3 amazing! I knew LaDonna from a previous photo session and when she was booked for Oct 18 I was heartbroken but she referred me to Sarah. I'm not at all disappointed in the fact now! Sarah has been a doll to work with and so patient w me and my wedding party! I'm getting married about 1.5hr south of Dallas and they are coming to me and starting super early to get me and my entire bridal party ready. Walter did an amazing job in my hair!!! He works some serious magic, not to mention he was sweet as can be as well. Made me feel extremely comfortable and I loved the experience!" - Sloan S.



“Just had our Wedding in October 2014 and had the pleasure to have my makeup and hair done by LaDonna Stein from lashes and Lace. This was the most fabulous experience! For my wedding I wanted a Pin-up girl style hair and makeup and LaDonna was able to far exceed any expectation I had and create a truly wonderful hair design and amazing airbursh makeup. Lashes and Lace was able to be super flexible with my venue location well as working with me on the timing issue as we were not able to do a test run ahead of time but Sarah Downs was really great to work with setting everything up to fit with what I needed and LaDonna did such an amazing job. I highly recommend lashes and Lace for hair and Makeup and look forward to have an opportunity to work with them again in the future!” – Erin K.



"Ladonna did my daughters makeup and hair for her wedding. She had done my makeup also prior to that. It was very well done, and I did not want to take it off, so I did not... ;)... it looked pretty good the next day also. My daughter looked amazing! she looked like a brunette Marilyn Monroe, and she stayed amazing all day! How can it get any better than that? She is a passionate artist, professional and fun! Top notch...Thanks, Ladonna!" - Cindi S.



"LaDonna, you did my hair and make-up for my wedding back in April, and I just wanted to let you know that I've been updating some things on my website, and that I've officially added a link to your website as my favorite hair and make-up artist, and I'll be letting all of my future brides know that they should hire you because you are so awesome! I enjoyed working with you, you paid such attention to detail and to my concerns (especially my fear of being orange!), and I've worked with several make-up artists over the years, and I was definitely most impressed by your work. I would love it if every single one of my brides booked you for their wedding - it makes such a difference in the finished look of the photos whenever their face matches their neck, their colors work, their hair is gorgeous, etc, etc. " - Bethany Erin (bride & wedding photographer)



“I absolutely loved the way I looked on my wedding day. Sarah and her whole team were a fun, charismatic group who fit right in with all of my bridesmaids. They created the perfect look for all of my girls, and I couldn't have been happier. Lashes and Lace is a must when wanting to create your perfect look!” – Linsey V.



"With all the chaos of event planning, the makeup and hair was honestly the easiest part thanks to Lashes & Lace!! The outstanding level of communication months before the event provided by Sarah really made me feel like I could trust this company that was new for me, with my face, which everyone knows is the most important! I wasn't let down even the slightest- I gave LaDonna Stein the looks I wanted and she made me look amazing. I am definitely having her doing my makeup and hair for my wedding too! Wouldn't even consider having anyone else!!" - Noreen S.



"I had my air brush make-up bridal trial with LaDonna who contracts with Lashes & Lace, and it was so great! I showed her two pictures of what I wanted my make-up to look like and she was able to execute it perfectly. The best part of the trial was being able to ask her questions about what she was doing, and having a better understanding of why she was picking the colors she was. I am so excited for my wedding day and I know that I will be in great hands! After my trial, LaDonna asked me to text her with any changes that I may want to make, and to give her an overall feel for how my make-up lasted throughout the day. The attentiveness to detail is allowing me to be stress free about my wedding day look. In regards to contracting through Lashes and Lace, Sarah Downs has been great. She has created a timeline to make sure that all my girls will be done with their make-up on time, and she has been responsive to emails and random questions. Sarah has also ensured that we have three make-up artists on wedding day to ensure we don't run behind schedule. I truly have appreciated her attention to detail, and ensuring I am stress free that day. I highly recommend contracting with Lashes and Lace. They have been the easiest wedding vendors to work with, and have allowed me to be at ease about my wedding day look. Oh and a great perk is that all the girls-- whether they are getting airbrush or regular make-up-- have the option of free fake eyelashes. :)" - Ioanna M.



"I worked with Sarah (make-up) and LaDonna (for my hair) on a wedding I was in. I had my makeup/hair done bright and early at 8am - and by the reception time of 7pm that same day my makeup and hair looked FLAWLESS! Sarah and LaDonna really cared about my input and utilized the information and pictures I submitted - while at the same time using their own expertise and creativity to ensure my look was original and fitting for ME. They were sweet, kind, patient, and truly experts at what they do. You can tell they're very attentive to details and are artists that won't accept anything less than 100% for their finished product. thank you Sarah and LaDonna for making me feel beautiful, special, and ensuring this special day was memorable and worry-free!" - Rachel B.



“LaDonna and Tiinia did a beautiful job on all of us for the wedding.  We could not have been more pleased with the quality, professionalism, and kindness that was exhibited by both young ladies.  Thank you…Please share my compliments with the ladies.  Thank you so much.” - Xan K.



"I had the pleasure of meeting with LaDonna and Randi for my Trial Run on the day of my engagement photos and they were both wonderful! Despite the bad weather, they were both on-time and ready to go! Randi did my updo and did an absolutely amazing job! I showed her a few pictures and she created a style that was both beautiful and unique that worked perfectly with my hair. LaDonna did an awesome job on my make up--she took the time to understand my style, paid very close attention to detail, and made sure everything was exactly what I wanted. They were both very professional and seemed to love what they do. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and I am looking forward to working with them on the big day!" - Jessica A.



"Thank you SO much for being so wonderful! You and your team have been so flexible with the rain and my blonde moments! I cannot thank you enough for your beautiful hard work and kindness! I am going to recommend y'all to every bride I can find! Thank you Again.<3" - Merinda B.



"LaDonna made me feel gorgeous for my pageant this past weekend. Lashes and Lace is such a great business, and I felt like a priority every time I spoke with them. My schedule was a little hectic and unorganized, but they were able to work around it to ensure that I looked my best! I cannot speak highly enough of their professionalism, and kindness in a high stress situation like pageant day! LaDonna's calming and encouraging words made me feel so at ease. She gave her honest opinion when I wasn't completely sure of what I wanted- and that is worth it's weight in gold! I felt like I was being taken care of by a friend, and not just someone hired for a service. I will definitely be using them again!" - Jenna V. (contestant, Mrs. Texas America 2014)



"LaDonna Stein, Lashes & Lace Makeup and Hair was absolutely fantastic. I've actually used her for a couple events, not only my wedding but my bridal photos, a website photo shoot and a costume party. I've recommended her multiple times to family and friends. LaDonna is top notch!" - Nicole L.



“I had a great experience with Randi and LaDonna on my wedding day! They were prompt and efficient, and of course did a wonderful job. They are both very skilled and I was very pleased with my wedding make up & hair. Even though my hair was not the same as in my trial run, it was still beautiful. Ladonna quickly adapted when I wanted to amp up my look from our last session. All around very impressed and would recommend them to anyone!” – Jessica A.



"Ladonna is every bit of amazing as I'd recalled- I was very very happy with the outcome of the trial... She definitely saw my vision, put it all together & really just hit the look spot on! Couldn't be happier that I have her on my side for the wedding!" - Jamey B.



"Ladonna Stein of Lashes and Lace is hands down one of the best hair and makeup artists in the South. Everyone looked stunning. My makeup and hair held up all day and night and I received so many compliments." - "germandreamgirl" ( review)



"Hi Sarah! I was MAJORLY impressed with Ladonna!! She is amazing, wow. She made me look amazing on the big day and I want to shout it out to the world LOL! Thank you guys so much! Expect to hear back from me before the wedding!" - Noreen S.



"Sarah and LaDonna were amazing! I've had my hair and makeup down for several weddings, and I don't think I have ever loved the end result so much. They really took into consideration the preferences of each individual wedding party member, more so than I have ever seen. I think it's only a matter of time before some big-time celebrity discovers these ladies and they become official stylists to the stars : )" - Michelle J.



"Ladonna is amazing everyone looked great!! Very friendly and professional!!!!!" - private user (weddingwire review)



"LaDonna was awesome! After receiving a make-up lesson, I never looked better. I get compliments on my make-up all the time. I felt completely beautiful for my event!" - Emily B.

"I love working with LaDonna.... her work is incredible. Im getting ready to do a shooting with her for Maxim Magazine." - Kalliope P.



"I was extremely fortunate to have LaDonna Stein do hair and makeup for my bridal portraits and my wedding. She completely exceeded any expectations I had. She was extremely professional and had an innate sense for figuring out exactly what it was I had in mind for my own hair and makeup and for my bridesmaids. She followed through and made certain that every detail was taken care of. She was also a complete joy to be around and made me feel at ease. I could not have asked for a better hair and makeup artist!" - Katrin C.



"I've worked w Ladonna and her team for many years. She is professional, courteous, and always spot on w hair and makeup. We've challenger her in the past and she consistently delivers. I highly recommend her!" - Don N.



"I was very pleased with my makeup done by LaDonna Stein, Lashes & Lace Makeup & Hair. She wanted me to be very pleased and I was as she made it all look so natural. I loved the air brush application she did a wonderful job." - Elaine S.



"LaDonna has superb makeup experience. She had done my makeup 3 other occasions (1 bachelorette party and 2 weddings) before she did my bridal makeup and wedding. My bridal party, as well as all of the bridal parties I was in, received compliments and all of the girls loved their makeup!" - Nikki M.



"LaDonna did an awesome job on my make up and my other family members. She even covered up on of my bridesmaids tattoos that she wanted covered up. Plus most of all I the bride got stitches removed from my forehead the day before the wedding and you could not even tell with the fabulous make job. I would highly recommend her for any make up job anytime." - Kristi W.



"I film a lot of weddings and have worked with a number of people but none have stood out as much as LaDonna Stein. She not only makes the person she is directly working with feel comfortable and confident but she radiates that energy to everyone else in the room. As a videographer, nothing makes my shoots easier than a happy bride and that usually starts right after make up. So I've always appreciated a make up artists that can set the tone from the start. It was truly a pleasure working with LaDonna and I hope I get to work with her again soon." - Pablo H. (Verona Motion Pictures)



"I absolutely loved working with LaDonna Stein of Lashes & Lace! LaDonna was so helpful and professional pre-photoshoot as well as during. She provided great advise as to multiple look options. She even took the time to view some of my past photos and ideas that I sent for inspiration for the day of the event. I found her fee to be very reasonable, especially having worked with multiple makeup artists/stylists in the past. LaDonna was very professional but was also super positive and upbeat. She was referred to me by my trusted photographer so I knew she would be good. She was early to the appointment. Took time to consult and make sure that we were all (the photographer too) in agreement on the looks. She also went above and beyond to stay and help me fine tune some details in between looks. She created 2 distinct and beautiful looks that were perfect for photos. I was so excited about her work I referred her for a friend's wedding and even called her some time after the shoot for advise about my wedding (elopement) makeup as I couldnt find an artist near our wedding site. LOVE LOVE LOVE LaDonna-Highly recommend her for any and all events! She will make you feel gorgeous!" - Olivia B.



"Two Halloweens in a row, Ladonna has generously squeezed me in at the last minute, often with only a couple hours notice, to fix the mess I had made of my costume make-up. She is one of the most talented make-up artists I have worked with, and she absolutely nailed my look both times (from a cell-phone photo alone!). On top of how quick, professional, and generous she is, Ladonna is also just a fantastic and warm person. I couldn't be happier to have worked with her, and I hope to do so again in the future!" - Desirae E.



"I had to host an event themed as a gatsby-ish speakeasy... Having gone to Ladonna several times before I was already privy to her work.the day of the event my face decided to break out along my chin and jaw line... I was stressed out knowing I would have to take red carpet pics this evening.. Well Ladonna came to the rescue! Not only did she cover my blemishes and the makeup and hair was flawless for the entire event. I could not have been happier.. I recommend Ladonna for any event you have.. And I know I'll be calling her when I get married as well!" - Becca J.



"Yesterday my fiancee and I had our hair and makeup trial with LaDonna. I don't regularly wear makeup, and was unsure of the exact look I wanted. LaDonna was able to work with my various inspiration images and vague ideas to create a look that I absolutely love. I could not be happier with Lashes & Lace! I cannot wait for the real deal!" - April K.



"LaDonna assisted my mother in law and myself on an evening of make up techniques that we could use every day and could use for a night out. LaDonna took the time to travel to my home and teach us make up skills that will stay w/ us forever. LaDonna's work is truly amazing." - Kristi W.



"Hi Sarah...Thank you for everything. The entire team (LaDonna, Kaia, Amber) was phenomenal!" - Lacey P.



"A giant thanks to LaDonna Stein super professional make up. She makes the faces that launch a thousand ships! " - Rebecca C.



"I have had the pleasure of working with LaDonna Stein a number of times – she is a real artist and a complete professional - one of the best makeup/hair artists I’ve worked with in my 25 years as an actress. She has done my hair and makeup for several video shoots that last 10 hours or more, for which I’m on camera non-stop. These long days require a lot of ‘beauty maintenance!’ She gets me looking great and then keeps me from wilting during these demanding shoots. LaDonna not only does my hair and makeup, she looks out for me every second I’m on camera, making sure that every hair is in place, for every take, and that I look fresh and natural. I come out looking better than my best self! I don’t even bother checking myself in the mirror before I shoot, because I know I’ll look great – even in HD, which shows every detail. The client is very specific about my look, and they have an eagle eye for any flaws as they sit on set watching us tape. LaDonna is never more than about 10 feet away, with comb, spray, powder, lipstick and whatever else I might need in hand - including cups of hot tea, water, or a bite of power bar once I’m in place for shooting and can’t step off set! She is amazingly attentive. I must also mention that she makes sure my wardrobe for the shoot looks just right, checking constantly for a shifting sweater, a crumpling collar or an off-center necklace. Her eye for detail reveals her art study background - she has an artist’s eye. Finally, I want to say what a pleasure it is to work with LaDonna. She is smart, kind, and has a great demeanor on set. Makeup artists basically have to be in your face all day when you’re filming anything, and this can be a bit intrusive and even uncomfortable - but it never is with LaDonna. She’s the best. There is no one I’d rather work with!" - Ellen L.



"I am a photographer who works in both Dallas and New York City. I have worked with LaDonna Stein on many occasions, for bridal, wedding and fashion work. She my 'go-to' makeup artist when she is a available. She understands not only beauty makeup up, but also understands the whole idea of any given event. She is very easy to work with, and has a great eye. I recommend her with hesitation or reservation. From gorgeous to GaGa, she has you covered." - H. James H.



"Lashes & Lace has provided hair and make up services for me for the past 5 years and they are always my first call for weddings and other occasions that require hair and make up. LaDonna is always professional and develops a great rapport with her subjects that put them at ease and make my job a lot easier as a photographer and retoucher. I cannot recommend them strongly enough - they make every bride a queen for a day!" - Nate R.



"I have had the pleasure of working with LaDonna Stein several times, and I admire her and her work a great deal. She is professional, attentive, friendly, efficient, and extremely talented - truly a makeup ARTIST. Her style is versatile, her services are very reasonably priced, and she will make you feel like a million bucks! She has done my hair & makeup for photo shoots, stage appearances, and special occasions (including my 30th birthday), and I have also been present while she has made countless others look and feel fabulous. If I ever want to look my very best for a special event, she is the only choice." - Jodi



"LaDonna and Kaia were amazing! My hair was amazing, I loved it so much, Sarah said I could get two hair and makeup tests just in case I didn't like the first since I'm picky but it wasn't even a problem and I didn't need to try another hair style because I loved it so much. My makeup was a little on the dramatic side because I asked for it to be that way. It was great for my bachelorrete party and everything still looked nice at 2 am. The lashes stayed put all night and that's a plus. Overall I loved the girls and it was such a pleasant experience, they made me feel so comfortable that I can't even think about having someone else do my hair and makeup on my actual special day!" - Vanessa D.



"Thank you for the beautiful hair/make up! Happy Valentines week!"

"Another BIG thank you to LaDonna Stein Makeup Artist for our sexy beast hair/make up look! We love ya!"

"I had both my hair and makeup done for my bridal photos and wedding day. The results were perfect! I felt so glamorous and special. The two styles were different, but similar so that I would look equally elegant but unique for the two occasions. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a MUAH professional." - Amanda B.



"LaDonna Stein was recommended to me by Marzia Prince to teach me how to create my makeup for the 2012 Heart of Texas Bodybuilding Competition, 9/8-9. Stage makeup is very different than everyday makeup. LaDonna came to my home to teach me, & used as much as my existing makeup as possible, a cost savings to me. So suggested & bought for me the additional makeup that I needed to complete my stage look. I received many compliments for my makeup application. LaDonna also applied my makeup for the November 2012 photo shoot for the cover of the online magazine Healthy Housewives. Great artistic makeup that accented my natural features, & she again taught me as she created the makeup look. It was a good experience! LaDonna Stein was professional, friendly and very creative ... a great teacher, as well." - Martha O.



"Wow! Ladonna is by far the most talented make up and hair artist in Dallas. I have worked with make up in LA to Las Vegas, but none match up to Ladonna's talent. She will transform you into your most beautiful self! Ladonna is able to create any look you desire from fierce business executive to a Guess model. Her clientele list consist of several celebrities; you wouldn't know because of her humbleness. Not only will you be transformed she also brings joy and peace by calming any nervous you may have before a big event. There is no one like the charts!!!!!!" - Natalie R.



"LaDonna has done my hair and makeup twice and she is amazing. Even when I had to reschedule because of bad weather she was flexible and attentive to my needs. She will always get my business for those special occasions." - Jennifer



"LaDonna, with Lashes and Lace, in my opinion is the best make-up artist in Dallas. I have requested her for all my special events since 2010. Once you've had your make-up done by her LaDonna, no one else can compare. I have used her for photo shoots, Competitions, where she does a full 2 days of ladies make-up from 7:00am-7:00pm, family milestones and any and everything that I need to look my best and be camera ready. LaDonna is professional, conscientious, courteous and most importantly an artist. She waves her magic make-up wand and poof, you are more beautiful that you could have ever imagined. If you want to look your best for any event, book your makeup appointment with LaDonna and be amazed at how she always brings out your inner and outer beauty." - Karen P.

I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely use her services again next year!!" - Melissa M.

"I have engaged LaDonna Stein at Lashes & Lace Makeup and Hair for numerous fashion photoshoots and photographic art projects where the results are paramount to my clients. Her attention to detail and perfection ranks her amongst the top three within my extensive make-up and hair professionals list. Her breadth of experience has also helped me immensely in closing any creative gaps during photoshoots, creating a more polished and sophisticated product than what was originally envisioned. She remains my go-to person for technically complex projects for make-up and hair. LaDonna is also patient, charming, professional, and certainly a joy to work with." - Gerard G.



"I first met and worked with LaDonna on a photo shoot, as we were both a part of the styling team, and have since worked with her on other similar projects.

Her style is versatile, her work is impeccable, and she is just as hard-working on set, maintaining the integrity of her creations. Most of all, she has a delightful personality; an absolute joy to work with. I would highly recommend her for any occasion requiring hair and makeup services." - Denise



"My hair and makeup where one of the most important things for my wedding because I wanted to look good! I hardly ever wear makeup and I wanted to look completely different on that day. I chose to spend a little more than what I thought I would exactly for the reason above, and I do not regret it one bit. LaDonna and Kaia were amazing and I looked great! For my makeup I ended up changing it 100% from what I had chosen on my trial and it turned out perfect and my hair, omg my hair, it turned out 100 times better the day of the wedding than on my trial day. I felt and looked stunning on the day of my wedding and I owe it all to those two girls!" - Vanessa V.



"I have been very privileged to work with LaDonna on several occasions for fashion shows or photo shoots (don't remember exact dates). Easily the best MUAH in town and always a first choice for an important event. She is truly a master of her craft. I regret having to wash my face at the end of the night, it's like scrubbing off a work of art! I would definitely recommend her for any occasion. (:" - Alexandra M.

She would do one side of the face, and I would do the other. It was a great way to learn! She was really easy to be with – like a friend right off the bat. It was a wonderful experience! If I ever need my makeup done professionally for anything, I'm definitely going back to LaDonna." - Stephanie F.



“I wanted to follow up with you to let you know that Tiinia did a wonderful job with hair and makeup on my friend Christina and me the evening of Ashley's wedding.  We were both so pleased.  I had so many compliments that evening as did Christina.  I'm wondering if you could ask Tiinia if she recalls the brand and color of lipstick that she used on me.  Amazing that it stayed on through the duration of the evening!  No worries if she doesn't remember.  Thanks so much for pairing us up with the perfect stylist.  Ashley and her bridesmaids too looked absolutely gorgeous.   They could not have been more pleased with the quality, professionalism and kindness that was exhibited (by Tiinia and LaDonna)!” - Xan K.



"Two days ago I had my hair and makeup trial with LaDonna, and I couldn't have had a better experience!

"I have very, very long hair and LaDonna was super excited to work with it- resulting in me getting exactly what I wanted for my hair: something with braids that still looks sleek and not too romantic. I liked the final product so much, I even changed my mind on using a comb I had already purchased for the wedding day and will replace it with smaller individual hair pins that show off the intricacy of the hair design. She will absolutely take time to think through your ideas with you and knows how to create a look that is not just what you asked for, but also flattering to your individual appearance." - Anna M.

"When I was thinking about where I could save some money in the wedding, I considered doing my own hair and makeup. That would have been an awful mistake. LaDonna did the hair and makeup for my mom, sister, and me on my wedding day. I wanted to wear my hair curly and braided. No one can ever braid my hair when it is not straightened, but LaDonna made it happen and it was beautiful. The hair and makeup looked fantastic in person and in photos (i.e. our makeup didn't look caked on in person just so that we could look good in photos). She was great to talk to while I was having my morning of the wedding, OMG seating arrangements need to be changed, freak-out moment...she kept me calm and laughing, and even finished earlier than she scheduled us to be done. She is excellent." - Stephanie

Weddings William Bichara (photographer), Franco Hernandez (videographer) from Epique Cinema, Deejay Prashant, and LaDonna and Sarah Downs from Lash & Lace makeup. Everyone did an amazing job and I hope that everyone else used any of the vendors I recommended here for their wedding or anything else. Everyone was very accommodating and just made our wedding memorable to say the least." – Vrishank J.



"LaDonna is the gal who does your makeup (at Dallas Pinup), and she is fantastic and super sweet! If you have long hair, the two basic choices (at Dallas Pinup) are old hollywood curls and victory curls. If you have something in mind I'm sure she can do that too, but I was clueless and went for the victory curls which turned out great. She is a freakin' wizard with makeup and false lashes... I was so excited when she was finished. It was amazing! I looked like the perfect pinup version of myself." - Jennifer W.


"...absolutely an awesome experience. LaDonna is a super talented make up artist. I looked flawless with my perfect cat eyed liner and ruby red pout. My hair was curled with one roll in the front....and 2 pin curls on the side...hen a cascade of curls in the back." - Danielle B.



"Shoshana & La Donna (of Dallas Pinup), I can not thank you enough or say enough good things about my pin up photo shoot last night....and I don't even have the pictures yet. My husband was totally shocked (in a great way) when I got home. My son told me that I didn't look pretty, I looked beautiful. And I kid you not one of our dogs didn't recognize me and shied away from me. But the best part, well, I can't post about the best part (wink wink), but the second best part was the lady at the restaurant who stopped at our table on her way out to tell me how beautiful I looked. Even the unedited images on the camera were more beautiful than I ever thought I could be. You two ladies were nothing but the perfect mix of professionalism, kindness, fun, consideration, and absolute talent. Thank you so much." - Rebecca G.



"LaDonna really reminds us laypersons that hair and make-up is an art. My experience was all around wonderful.I had a wedding dress that felt like it was rather over the top; however, I actually received comments on my hair from every single female at the wedding. My hair was so wonderful, I wish I could have had more time to myself just to stare at it in the mirror. I have not gotten the professional photos from our photographer, but I can tell even from the low-res ones I have seen so far from friends and family that the make-up made my face look really "fresh"- for lack of a better word. She made my skin look great - like I had been getting plenty of water and sleep for a month prior (neither of these really happened) and the finish of the make-up was flawless until the end of night. LaDonna also did hair and make-up on my mom; my mother visited from Germany and does not speak English fluently, but she told me that she just instantly trusted LaDonna and her ability to make her look great. The atmosphere she created was very relaxed and friendly which was very important to me." - Willanna



"I just had my trial run with LaDonna and she was amazing!! She understood the look I was going for and was able to nail it! I can relax knowing I'm in good hands on my Wedding day. My trial run hair and makeup lasted all day long, my look was bullet proof! Sarah has been so great at responding to my emails and phone calls. She has gone out of her way to work with my crazy schedule. Definitely worth every penny!" - Melissa D.



“I've been to a hair class and I can attest that LaDonna is great at giving personalized instructions and help. My class had varied hair styles and types, so we were told how to deal with bangs, short, long, wavy, curly, thick, thin, etc hair. LaDonna has a solution for any head of hair. I've shared many of her secrets with my friends, even things that don't apply for my hair. I learned a lot! Great class.” – Sarah DM



"Lashes and Lace was one of my favorite vendors for my wedding. LaDonna and Tiinia did the hair and makeup for me and my female relatives, and they were both fantastic. I showed LaDonna a magazine photo as the inspiration for my hair and makeup look, and she made me look EXACTLY like the photo. I was thrilled! Tiinia did the hair for my sisters and mom and was very receptive to their comments and opinions and worked with them to make sure they were happy with their looks. Had a great experience the day of, they were very organized and knew what they were supposed to be doing at all times, and even when we were running a bit late in the middle of getting ready, they made up the time without sacrificing quality to make sure everyone was ready on time. Cannot recommend this service enough!" - Mili D.



"I had a last minute event and they accommodated my schedule and it was so easy to get my contract executed and not have to worry about it any longer. LaDonna was wonderful and offered much needed advice on how to wear my hair and makeup. The compliments were endless throughout the night on my hair and makeup. I will call them again!" - Debbie C.



"I recently had my trial hair and makeup done by LaDonna at Lashes & Lace for my wedding. LaDonna was amazing. I showed her the looks I was going for, and she recreated them and then some! I am so excited for my wedding day for her to do my hair and makeup. LaDonna has a great personality and is a lot of fun to work with. My entire experience with Lashes & Lace has been great - Sarah has helped us so much in getting everything set up for the big day and doing the hair/makeup for myself and all my bridesmaids. I can't wait for it!!"- Bailey W.
