"I LOVE this place and the staff!! My sister had gone here before and fell in love and decided to have the team do hair and makeup for her wedding. I normally am not big on writing reviews, but i honestly was so impressed and happy with my hair and makeup that i wanted to share with everyone. There are tons of options for these services in Boston and i have been to a lot for different events and parties, but found that The Candy Bar is by far the best!!

For the rehearsal dinner we actually went to the store in Wellesley, which was nice so I could get an idea of what to expect for her wedding on Saturday. I started with my hair and showed Marisa a couple of pictures from pinterest, but could not decide on an exact look. Marisa was amazing! She was so nice and so patient with me, as we talked about the different options. Ultimately i left the decision up to her, and i was so happy i did! (I added a few pictures of my hair to the yelp page to show the final turnout) I loved what she did and could not believe how it turned out! I received a LOT of compliments on my hair that night. Next i went on to makeup with Candice. My face was kind of a mess with a few blemishes, but within minutes Candice even the tone and applied an awesome moisturizer and foundation. I also showed Candice a picture from pinterest of the type of look I wanted to use for the eyes. On pinterest it was pretty dramatic, but Candice was able to take the concept and apply it in a softer version for me. I loved how it turned out and really enjoyed my conversion with Candice, she is really nice and very funny!
I was kind of expecting hair and makeup to be similar with slight differences for myself, my mom, and my sister, but was blown away on how different and amazing each of us looked! We all loved our hair and makeup, and were really excited for them to come to hair and makeup for the wedding.
On Saturday the team came to the Intercontinental to do our hair and makeup. They were already there and set up at different stations with a million options when we arrived. There were a total of 10 of us getting a hair and makeup done. I am also including pictures from this so take a lot!
Candice and Marisa were amazing for this!! They spent the time to listen to each of us to get an idea of exactly what we wanted and even would stop along the way to show us what it was looking like. They even stayed late for us to do any last minute touch ups!! Marisa did something different with my hair for the wedding and it was absolutely amazing.
I honestly cannot say enough about how happy we all were with The Candy Bar team. I will be using them for every event moving forward and highly recommend that you do too!!"

"The Candy Bar is an excellent place to shop in downtown Wellesley for cosmetics, toiletries, and especially gifts. The owner, Candy, has a great sense of trends and the store carries an extensive line of jewelry as well as some hard to find cosmetic brands like Girlactic . They also carry the full line of Nest candles and  diffusers which are among my very favorite brand. The store has a wide variety of price points. Also, I love buying gifts from the store because they wrap them so adorably. The sales people are knowledgeable and helpful and I have always had a great experience when shopping there."
