Introduction

 Hello! I'm Jessica, the fouder of Bridal Rush, and our lead bridal stylist + team educator.

I live here on Long Island with my husband + our three daughters.. and two dogs!  have had the pleasure of working with brides for over 15 years now, and I can truly say I love my career. I have curated a team of amazing stylists and artists, who truly make bridal visions come to life! Work feels like one big happy family when we are all together. Bridal Rush has expanded territories and has teams based out of not only New York, but, Boston, Connecticut + Nashville aswell! Aside from Bridal Rush, I own two full service hair salons, Bounce Salon and Isla + Wolf Beauty, both located here on Long Island. 

The Wedding Industry

I started working with brides in my early twenties and quickly realized that I was so passionate about being a part of this very special moment in someone’s life. I am a very patient and calm person and I think that has really helped me to connect really well with my brides. 

The Wedding Memories

It’s been a dream to work with so many amazing brides. The moments that stand out the most to me are when the happy tears come from a bride that sees herself for the first time after I finish her hair. There is nothing like that feeling. I live for those moments!

Specialization

I think what makes our company unique is that we are able to offer a lot to our brides under one brand and we have a large team! Bridal Rush is very well rounded when it comes to your wedding day look from boho to clean and chic, we can do it all! 

Bridal Rush offers on location services as well as in studio appointments. But, it doesnt stop there! We have a boutique for you to shop in, education, a trendy bridal pinterest page, multiple full service salons and are bellami certified in hair extensions! 

Company History

I founded the company after I had my first daughter. I wasn’t treated well upon wanting return back to work after my maternity leave. I didn’t like that people in the hair and makeup industry were treated in some aspects. I wanted to create a company where my employees could have more than just a side job. I wanted them to have careers, job security, benefits and place where they can build on their dream job. Right now my dreams from 10 years ago are beyond fulfilled for this company! We have serviced over a thousand brides, have multiple locations and 30+ women employees. 

FAQs

Please also pre - book your trial as far in advance as possible, and schedule for at least 3 months prior to your wedding date.  

Personal Hobbies

Honestly I am so in love with being a mom and wife, decorating my home and building my team. I love educating + mentoring the girls that I work with to help them be everything I know they can be. It’s a good example to my girls as I am a mom to 3! It’s so rewarding watching my team build up and accomplish their goals. Knowing that this brand is the platform to make that happen for them, makes all the years of hard work, sleepless nights, while building a small business and having babies...all so worth it!

I had so much fun chatting with Rachel at my trial. I was so excited for my wedding day and she did not disappoint. All the girls loved their hair and she finished early too but hung around to do touch ups for anyone. She copied pictures shown for inspiration perfectly.

I used Jessica for my hair and Tanya for my bridesmaids. They are both amazing at what they do! Jess took her time during my trial, and allowed me to do 3 different looks so I could decide what I loved the most. My hair stayed perfectly the whole night. I highly recommend them!

Shannon at Bridal Rush is INCREDIBLE. She treats you like family. I don’t think I could have asked for a better experience or more accommodating human being. She is so sweet and I honestly cannot thank her enough for her incredible talent, patience, and kind words. She is the absolute BEST!

Bridal Rush was AMAZING! I have no regrets about selecting them for services for both myself and my wedding party for hair! Jenna and Denise were phenomenal. I was blown away by how truly beautiful everyone looked! Thank you so much to Jenna, Denise, and the Bridal Rush team for making my dreams come true!!

Alana was perfect! I am a fairly pale person, so makeup tends to look orange on me if it’s too dark of a shade, so I was on a deep dive looking for someone who wouldn’t make me look like an Oompa Loompa. I had looked at so many makeup artists instagrams and websites trying to find the right person then I found Alana from Bridal Rush. She did such a great job, I didn’t look orange at all and she was able to make me look beautiful but still like myself. Between the trial and the wedding, I decided to make a few minor adjustments and she was all for it and flawlessly created the exact look I was going for. I felt so beautiful and I totally recommend her, especially my fellow pale girlies.

We used bridal rush for hair, and everyone looked stunning! I used Jade who is an absolute sweetheart!! She nailed my wedding day hair and it seriously stayed looking perfect the entire night!

I was so happy with how my hair came out!!I was probably the most indecisive person when it came to figuring out what style I wanted. I ended up doing two trials. One was an updo side style, which came out beautiful but over a few months my vision changed and I wanted glam waves so I did a second trial. Wedding day, she nailed it again and blew me away. My hair came out GORGEOUS, I was so happy. Jenna is so sweet and wonderful to work with!!

The team at bridal rush was incredible! Makeup and hair lasted the entire night despite the rainy weather. The hairstyle Rachel created was just what I envisioned on my wedding day. Chanel was able to execute exactly what I asked for. She made me look natural and not too overdone. The makeup showed up great in photos and I got so many compliments. They went above and beyond to make my day everything I had imagined and more. Big thanks to the very talented Rachel, Chanel, and the Bridal Rush team for the positive experience!

Bridal Rush is all class and professionalism. Very reliable and will be there early to give you the perfect look. The emailing is just so professional and stress free. The hair lasted all day (and all night till morning..) and I really felt like they took my hair into consideration and customized the look and the amount of product to tame frizz and keep curls intact. The women who came to do my hair were so fun, and made my morning special. The trials were also highly organized and I felt that I got exactly what I wanted.

Can Jess from Bridal Rush be my new best friend? ???? I had my hair trial today and within two minutes of being there, I felt like I’d known her forever. I’ve been following Bridal Rush for years and I now know why everyone raves about her. She was SO sweet and I am so honored to have her do my hair for my wedding day ????

I don’t even know how to sum this review up because Jessica from Bridal Rush is absolutely AMAZING. - I read soooo many reviews and looked at so many pictures on BOLI and almost every hairstyle I could picture myself with, was done by Jessica. Being a trusting person, I never booked a trial because life just got so crazy and I couldn’t find time. When Jess arrived to my house I showed her a hairstyle she just did on another bride and mentioned one thing that I would like a little different. She started working on my hair and then as time passed she showed me a picture on her phone. Not knowing this was my hair.. I was like YES! That is EXACTLY what I want!!! Then I realized… wait, is that me?!!? I started BAWLING. Guys I’m not kidding you when I say, My hair MADE my day. If I ever need my hair styled again, I don’t think I could ever use anyone but her. She also brought Gina, Hannah, and Jenna from her team to work on by mom, MIL, and bridesmaids and all of them looked absolutely stunning. Not only are Jessica and her team talented, but they are all as sweet as can be. I am so thankful to trust my gut and have Bridal Rush be a part of my special day.

BRIDAL RUSH! This team is worth every penny. I bounced around and danced all night long and my hair and makeup looked incredible. I have to shout out Jessica....my mom had originally decided she wanted to do her own hair and was having a panic attack the morning of because it just was not coming out right! I ran to Jessica who was finished styling all of us already and asked if there was any way she could help my mom out....she without hesitation said absolutely, sat her down in the chair and did not let her get up until she was fully satisfied with the look of her curls! ....no extra charge...this still brings tears to me eyes because it meant so much to me! Do yourself a favor and book with them!
