"Ashley did the most amazing job on not only my hair, but on my mom's, mother in law's, and Matron of Honor's hair as well! Loved having her as a part of our special day, she is such a pleasure to be around. Her personality, professionalism and talent are all top notch.
It was so convenient and comfortable to have her come to the home where we were getting ready. I loved the intimacy and privacy of being with my closest girlfriends instead of a salon.
I highly recommend her to any bride!"

"Ashley Kakugawa is amazing! She's got one those comforting souls that puts you instantaneously at ease when you meet her and a natural talent for making you look beautiful on your big day.
I was lucky enough to randomly fall across her website a few months before the wedding and from previous reviews I knew she would be wonderful and that's exactly what she was.
There was no delay in getting back to me ever and she even took the time to create a bridal party hair and makeup schedule for us. (which we printed off and handed our to those involved) saving us a ton of time!
She is very reasonable priced and the best part is she comes to you (we were staying in Ka'anapali) for both the trial run and the day of. She and Susie (makeup) were a wonderful team. Together they did not only do my hair and makeup, but both of my bridesmaids, my sister-in-law, my Mom, and my flower girl. Everyone loved what they did for them and the styles lasted through the evening.
I HIGHLY recommend Ashley's services and hope I'm lucky enough to have her do my hair again someday soon!"
"My four bridesmaids and I LOVED Ashley and April from Maui Bridal Stylist. I had my destination wedding in Maui in October 2011 and was nervous about finding the perfect stylist because I knew I wouldn't have time to do a trial run before the wedding day.
I had contacted several other stylist on the island and most of them gave me BS contracts to sign (i.e. charging extra fees if the person getting her hair done is not ready to go when the stylist arrives.) The gals from Maui Bridal Stylist gave me none of that, which is why I went with them. Not to mention, I had checked out their work on line an had the gut feeling that they would be THE perfect choice.
They don't charge travel fees for certain parts of the island and they will travel to wherever you are. They were prompt and worked pretty darn efficiently. They listened to what we wanted and made sure to actually give us what we wanted while modifying it to fit each of our own personal styles.
They made the process easy and stress-free and I couldn't have been more happy.
You can check out their website and also their facebook page for more information and pictures on their previous works.
Maui Bridal Stylist is HIGHLY recommended!"

"Ashley did my hair and makeup for my wedding day- thank God! All I knew was that I wanted it half up and half down. She took it to another level. She curled it beautifully and added lovely flowers. The amazing part is that it stayed beautiful through the night! She knew all the tips for applying the perfect amount of makeup to get the best pictures. When my groom first saw me, he whispered- "you look beautiful" and I know I owe that moment to Ashley! Thank you so much for making my day special. Not to mention she is incredibly sweet, kind and just fun to be around. I wanted her to be a part of my wedding party!"

"I am one of the lucky brides that was fortunate enough to have Ashley Kakugawa do my bridal hair! I was undecided as to what I wanted my hair to look like and became very stressed out about it. Ashley was there to calm my nerves and gave me multiple ideas right there on the spot. I told her to do what she thought would look best. I could not have been more pleased with the "DO" she came up with. She is truly creative and has a way of making you feel like she is your best friend! I felt so comfortable with her and knew my experience was nothing but perfect on my perfect day! Ashley made me look so elegant and classy. My pictures will forever thank you!"
