"I've had the pleasure of working with Emily in several capacities over the last 6 years and all my experiences have been top notch! Our professional relationship started when Emily was my personal cut and color stylist back in Los Angeles.
After both leaving LA we were lucky enough to team up again when I hired Emily as a stylist on a photo shoot I was producing for SunTrust bank in Atlanta. This project was no joke, with five long, hot days on location and about 20 different talent a day. Emily along with the complete styling team did a stellar job and always with a smile.
When it was time for my wedding, I couldn't imagine anyone else making the trek with me to Palm Spring, CA to style me to perfection. Emily's hair and make-up skills were put to the test, including airbrush work and extensions with an up-do, and she passed with flying colors. I have never felt so incredibly beautiful in my life.
Whether you are in the need of a stylist for your next production, a fabulous new cut and color, an up-do for a special event or even a make-up consultation to get you looking your best, Emily is without a doubt the person for the job. Oh and did I mention she is also tons of fun! "

"Emily was one of my favorite parts of my wedding experience! She made me feel so beautiful for both my bridal portraits and the wedding. I was so pleased with my makeup and hair and have recommended her to all of my newly-engaged friends. She is talented and creative, and she knows all the trends with hair and makeup as well as the classic looks. All six of my bridesmaids looked beautiful and were very happy with their hair. Emily also has a fun personality and is good under pressure and time constraints, which was important on the wedding day! I definitely suggest using her for your wedding or other special events."

"Emily Hudspeth was an extension of our production team assisting us with the Annual Conference for Society for Human Resource Management held in New Orleans. Acting as both makeup artist and hair stylist, she worked with those on the management team ensuring that they looked good on stage. Her professionalism and expertise are truly appreciated, and I stress that she is an asset for any projects."
"During Emily's service with us I admired her for her many valuable qualities and regarded her with even more respect. In my many years in the salon industry I have yet to meet someone with such determination & raw passion for her art. Her creativity & eye for detail are amazing and she continues to impress us with her increasing skill in that capacity. Along with being a keen business woman she was also an engaging team player. As she’s a real people person, Emily was able to win over even the toughest critics with her easygoing charm."

"Emily Hudspeth came out to my place of business and taught, my employees and myself, Airbrush Makeup. We were all really excited to learn this new technique and soon discovered that it is really easy to do and the system is affordable! Emily did a wonderful job on all areas of concern: punctuality, professionalism and presentation! I also really appreciated the product/vendor information that she passed on to us. I would highly recommend hiring Emily for both her educational classes and her professional services. Thanks Emily, for a fun-filled day of learning! You are welcome to come back anytime!"

"I totally found Emily through an Internet search, and I am very glad I did! I needed hair and makeup for different people in my wedding party and Emily was a one stop shop. She did an amazing job for all of us and had the best personality to deal with all the wedding day drama and all the people bustling around my home. The day before the wedding we had a scare that the original time we had to be ready for the wedding was to be pushed up four hours....Emily didn't panic or bail out, but called and simply said, "we can do it, when do I need to be there." You can't know how amazing that was. My bridal party spoke her praises all day-including me! The crying and dancing didn't mess up her artwork which was a bonus. For all you brides randomly searching the internet for someone and scared that you won't know what you are getting, search no farther."

"Emily began as my hair stylist, and we quickly realized a common appreciation for creativity and enjoying life. We worked together on a huge photo shoot, where Emily acted as overall coordinator and wardrobe & hair stylist. Beyond a fantastic sense of style, a fever for getting things done with finesse, and talent for motivating her teams, Emily cannot be phased even under enormous pressure. The jokes keep coming, the creativity flows, and the job gets done. Magic!"
– Ginger B., Los Angeles, CA.
"Working with Emily is an absolute dream! She is a amazing hairdresser with an even more amazing personality! Emily brings a much needed 'breath of fresh air' into the hair salon. When working with her, I felt confident in her skills and personal tastes to experiment with hairstyles and colors I would have never tried with anyone else. Emily made me feel at ease and I loved the way she cut my hair. I got so many compliments from complete strangers! I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a new 'do!"
– M. Stark, Los Angeles, CA
"Emily has been my stylist for five years, and I have been constantly complimented on my style and color. When I got married in November, Emily worked with me on what I wanted my overall look to be, and even helped me select my hair accessories and veil. Plus, I was able to relax through all the preparations, because Emily came to me and I did not have to make time for a salon visit. She was also the only artist in Baton Rouge I could find doing airbrush makeup, which stayed flawless the entire night! Every bride is told she's beautiful on their wedding day, but I had just as many compliments on just my hair and makeup as I did on my dress! She's amazingly talented, highly professional and thoroughly entertaining!"

"I LOVE my haircut! I always love the cut on the first day because the stylist fixes it so well, but the true test is when I wash it the next morning and style it myself. And I REALLY love it! It's so easy and cute - it suits me perfectly. It feels professional, but still young and fun. Not to mention how convenient that was. Thanks so much! Book me in for the same time next month so I can keep it up."
– Sarah W., Baton Rouge, LA
"I have nothing but good things to say about Emily! I have been going to Emily for the past 4 years for cut & color, and she has worked some wonders for me. When I first went to her, I needed some serious color correcting from past dye jobs. I am a big believer in aging gracefully, but going gray in my 20s, did not sound like a good idea to me. Emily has given me the perfect, natural-looking color to cover my grays. I am getting married this coming spring & Emily is already booked for my hair & makeup!"
– V. Brown, West Hollywood, CA to New Orleans, LA
"The first time Emily cut my hair I knew I had met my stylist soul mate. Not only is she easiest person to know and like but she is a master with those scissors. I have had strangers stop me to ask where I got my hair cut and I'm happy to send them her way because I she is so incredibly talented and will up their beauty quotient like she did for me!"
– Claire S., Baton Rouge, LA
"Emily did the hair and make-up for my wedding party and myself in May. She was hands down, the best "vendor" I worked with during the entire wedding planning. Emily was professional without being stuffy, super talented without being a know-it-all, and fun without being unfocused. She kept the entire day running smoothly, on schedule and calm. We actually had so much fun with her, that we all insisted that she come to the wedding reception to celebrate with us! I would recommend Emily to anyone who wants their wedding day to be flawless and their wedding to be beautiful."
– Jennifer F., Baton Rouge, LA
"First off she's amazing!!! I just got married and she did amazing!!! It was so easy to have her over at my house while my bridesmaids where there. It was comfortable and we got to spend more quality time before the wedding! Even the practice session was awesome it wasn't uncomfortable and she listened to me the client which is very important! She's really cool and down to earth which is definitely a plus. And she also keeps up with her practice. She's definitely reliable and a hard worker as well as very nice and confident in what she is doing!"
– Christy M., Baton Rouge, LA
"Having Emily as my personal stylist has been so convenient. Her house calls have proved life saving with my hectic schedule!"
