    Tara is AMAZING! She is such a dream to work with and was able to match exactly the hair style I wanted for my wedding. All my girls and flower girl's hair looks amazing. I would hire her over and over again! I highly recommend her. She has such a sweet soul and brings so much joy into getting ready.

    Tara & Jamie were absolute jewels in the crown of my daughter's wedding. Their sweet and peaceful manner, encouragement and kind gentle spirits just added to our experience getting hair and makeup done for our big event. We couldn't be happier with these ladies and the talent they have in designing and creating different hairstyles for our 6 girls and 2 moms who had the honor of Tara & Jamie being part of our special day. Thank you ladies! We love you!

    Without a doubt, book Tara (and Jamie) for your hair and makeup for your wedding day. Tara and her team did my hair and makeup along with 8 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls, and two mothers and we were all so blown away by their talent, professionalism, and timing of everything. Literally everyone in my bridal party was overly pleased with their hair and makeup and their pricing is incredibly reasonable. 5 stars doesn't even do them justice. Should also add Tara is the absolutely sweetest person to work with.

    I was lucky enough to have both my hair and makeup done by Tara from Irresistible Mess on my wedding day and also for my engagement photos. Not only did she do the most amazing job, better than I could have imagined, but is also one of the most kind, genuine and fun people I have ever met. I loved every bit of working with her and highly recommend her services for you and your wedding day!

    I would highly recommend Irresistible Mess to anyone looking for a bridal stylist! I booked Tara for myself, three moms and four bridesmaids for my wedding in San Marcos. She did an AMAZING job with everyone and genuinely cared about making sure everyone was 100% satisfied with their hair. Everyone wanted a different style and she completely nailed it...everyone looked so beautiful! I received so many compliments, and it still looked perfect by the end of the night! Not to mention, Tara is just the sweetest and she really helped me stay calm during the day while getting ready. From the first day I met Tara, I knew she was the stylist for me and she would be the perfect person to have as part of my wedding day. I highly recommend this lovely, talented lady for any and every bride!!!

    Tara was amazing and so wonderful to work with during this pandemic. She made me a beautiful bride on my wedding on August 14, 2020. She was so accommodating for all of the changes that occurred during this wedding and went above and beyond in her terms of service. She is a gem and should definitely be involved on your wedding day with her charismatic personality and her amazing styling. Austin

    Tara was my hair stylist on my wedding in August last year and I can't say enough good things about her as a person and her incredible work! She is absolute magic and can do all these amazing things with your hair. When I first did my trial with her, I knew I found the perfect team to handle all the glam for my big day! She is so sweet and listens to your wants and needs. She's very open to changes and doesn't impose her own ideas on you. She truly makes you the priority and ensures that you look your best on your big day. This review is long overdue but just want everyone to know to make sure to have her as your hair stylist on your big day because you will not be disappointed! I am so grateful for what she did for me and cannot thank her enough!

    A heart of gold and a true hair artist! Tara was absolutely a life saver, going above and beyond to make sure all the little details were taken care of on my daughter's wedding day. In between doing the bride's hair (gorgeous!) and starting to work on mine, she managed to walk our dog and even steamed my silk evening gown! Tara also volunteered to make two separate trips to first drive my daughter (the bride) and then me to the wedding venue. Her makeup person, Jamie, was also a true professional - patient, attentive and highly skilled. We couldn't have picked a better team - "Irresistible Mess" turned out to be irresistibly wonderful! I would highly recommend Tara to any bride who wants to shine on her special day.

    I do not think I will ever have the words to describe how grateful I am for Tara and how perfect she made my special day. When I reflect back on my wedding, one of the first thoughts that comes to my head is how blown away I was with my decision to hire Tara. The work she did with my hair and my bridesmaids' hair was absolutely amazing. I had a vision for what I wanted and she executed my vision flawlessly. I received more compliments on my hair than I can count. In addition to her amazing hair magic, Tara is genuinely one of the kindest, most loving, and most fun people to be around. She genuinely feels like a ray of sunshine that illuminates every room she walks into. She goes above and beyond to make sure the getting ready process is stress-free for the bride. Without a single ounce of reservation, I would recommend Tara and her team to any bride. To put into perspective, I am a Los Angeles native whose wedding was in L.A., and despite being surrounded by tons of local hair professionals, I decided to hire Tara who is in located all the way down in San Diego. She is THAT good!!! Trust me, you will not regret going with Irresistible Mess.
