Planning a wedding is no easy feat, Jennifer Reardon admits. Having just gotten married last October, the owner of Rebelle With A Gloss fully understands what the brides-to-be are going through when they come to her for professional advice, makeup, and hairstyling.
"I can totally empathize with what you're going through and have a unique understanding of your needs," Reardon said. The mission of her business is to not only make women look beautiful, but to make them feel confident and comfortable in their own skin. At Rebelle With a Gloss, the staff is highly trained to ensure that your expectations are met and that your stress levels are at a minimum.
"Your wedding will be one of the most wonderful days of your life, and we want to be a part of making it incredible for you," Reardon said.
Earning her master's in education in 2009, Reardon struggled to find a decent teaching position for years. She worked office jobs to make ends meet but couldn't find the spark and energy in her work. To make up for the lack of passion in her work she decided to create her own career, something that would fulfill her and make her happy. Having worked as a makeup artist's assistant, she carried a love for the trade and even her friends and family would encourage her to chase the dream. Not having any business experience, she was hesitant at first to undertake such a venture, but in 2011, she decided to give it a try, and her business has been growing steadily ever since.
"I loved being a part of empowering women and making them feel extra special," Reardon said.
Once you step into Rebelle With a Gloss, you instantly feel that you are in good hands. Reardon leads a team of professional makeup artists and hairstylists that are highly trained and experienced in their respective professions. Their services are available in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and other locations. Makeup and hair trials prior to a wedding are highly encouraged for the bride so the process on the day of the wedding can be that much smoother and quicker. In fact, Rebelle With A Gloss will take care of your bridesmaids' makeup and hair as well as, no matter how many you have, making sure that they are looking their best. Of course, it is advisable to give plenty of advance notice if you have more than six bridesmaids in your party to ensure the best possible service and availability.
"We understand that when we're hired for professional makeup and hair services, our clients want to create beautiful memories that last a lifetime," Reardon said. She bases her customer service philosophy on her personal bridal experience. Knowing the amount of anxiety and apprehension a typical wedding can bring firsthand helps her empathize with her clients. Preparing her clients aesthetically and emotionally for their big day takes talent but also plenty of hands-on experience. When a customer sees that you are calm, capable, and have her best interest at heart, a unique trust is built between you.
