I cannot say enough good things about Aphrodite Salon! Colleen is absolutely amazing - she's responsive, incredibly talented, laid back and professional. I couldn't have been happier with my hair on my wedding day. She truly made me, my mom and all of my bridesmaids look AMAZING! Thank you, Colleen!!!!!

Colleen of Aphrodite Salon made me feel like a wood nymph goddess on my wedding day. I had a bohemian updo with a braid and fresh flowers, which she expertly arranged even though she had no idea what stems would arrive until the big day. The 'do lasted about eight hours, even with the August heat. It made me all the more confident for photos. Colleen was punctual, professional, and a joy to be around. She had me, the mothers, and my new sister-in-law laughing during their time in her chair, as well. If you get a chance to visit her salon for a trial, be sure to meet her Westie dog Cregan. He's adorable.

Working with Aphrodite Salon on my wedding day was a blast. Colleen was recommended by our florist and our photographer, and I could not have been happier with my decision to hire her for our wedding. '
Her style perfectly captured the bohemian, yet elegant vibe I was going for. She is fun to work with, loves what she does, and has a really friendly, easy-going personality. My hair easily looses a curl and always falls out of updos, but Colleen’s work stayed in place throughout the night.
We made a few tweaks from my trial and Colleen had an eye for making all the right adjustments. My hair and my bridesmaids’ - total fairy goddesses - could not have been more perfect. It was all better than anything I had envisioned, and Colleen and her team really made it all come to life!
I highly recommend hiring Aphrodite Salon for your wedding - you will not be disappointed!

I found Colleen/Aphrodite Salon in the dark hole of Instagram wedding planning, and immediately knew I wanted her and her team to be part of our day. All of her styling captured my vision perfectly - elegant, but a little relaxed - so, so beautiful!!
From my first outreach, which was nearly a year in advance of my wedding, through our wedding day, Colleen was so communicative and helpful - she really went above and beyond.
Going into my trial I was a little all over the place (do I want it up? do I want it down?), so gave her free reign after telling her a little about our wedding. We were able to try out three options that day (so helpful in making a decision!) and settled on one. She took great pictures so I could look back on the styling leading up to our wedding, and also had stunning hair pieces to try.
On our wedding day, Colleen and Nicole were incredible. Among the bridesmaids and moms we had a lot of different hair types, hair styles and expectations - and Colleen and Nicole NAILED it. My hair looked incredible AND stood up through a windy, rainy Spring day. It was perfect.
I could not recommend Colleen more - she exceeded expectations. Not only does she run a great business and is clearly VERY talented, but she's also a wonderful person - so kind, easy-going, fun - and that's someone you want to be around on your wedding day. Thank you, Colleen!!

I absolutely loved working with Aphrodite Salon for my wedding! From booking, to the trial, to the actual day of the wedding, Colleen was extremely responsive, professional and chill throughout the whole process.
I planned my wedding out of state and was nervous about making the trip up to Maine for my trial without a clear hair vision in mind - Colleen allayed my anxiety by making helpful suggestions and being so knowledgable about hair, different hair styles, and wedding vibes in general, and we ultimately came up with a style that I loved and looked great in photos. She is extremely down to earth and easy to talk to, so I never felt awkward or afraid to give her feedback or ask questions.
On the day of the wedding, Colleen and her second stylist Nicole kept the flow of nine ladies with very different types of hair on schedule and on time. You end up spending a lot of your wedding day with your hair and makeup team, and Colleen and Nicole are exactly the type of folks you want to be hanging out with. Most importantly, everyone's hair looked fabulous and we all felt gorg and happy. Can't recommend Aphrodite enough!

Colleen is not only one of the most talented hair stylists I’ve ever seen, but she is also an incredible person. Words can’t even begin to explain how fortunate I feel to have had Colleen as part of the big day.
Colleen was so responsive throughout the entire process, including replying to emails just hours before she left for her own fabulous wedding!
I had a few ideas at the trial and Colleen instantly understood what vibe I was looking for. She came up with something that was even more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed up on my own. She really understands hair and what styles would look best from all different textures and colors.
On the wedding day, Colleen was such a nice calming addition to the bridal suite. Every one of the girls looked absolutely amazing and each style seemed to really compliment each individual personality.
Don’t even hesitate for a second to hire Colleen — you won’t regret it!

Searching for the right stylist to do your hair for your wedding day is no easy task, but when I stumbled upon Aphrodite Salon I didn't need to search any further. Not only was I obsessed with what I saw on the salon's Instagram account, but every vendor I hired for my wedding highly recommended working with Aphrodite Salon.
Colleen is a miracle worker when it comes to hair. I wanted to wear my hair down in loose sexy curls for my wedding day, which sounds easy, but getting the right curls is actually very tricky. Colleen completely nailed it and made me feel so beautiful! It even rained on my wedding day, but the curls stayed in perfectly thanks to Colleen's expertise and use of amazing products.
As for my bridesmaid's hair, I was going for a whimsical, ethereal vibe and Colleen was able to create just that. Not only is she talented, but she is also extremely sweet, flexible, and professional. Hanging out with her and her styling team on my wedding day was super fun -- more importantly it was relaxing because I didn't have to worry about whether or not my hair would come out the way I envisioned.
Aphrodite Salon totally gets wedding hair and is totally worth hiring for your wedding day!

Colleen was absolutely incredible and extremely talented; I made the best choice hiring her and her team for our wedding! She was always very prompt and professional during our communication. I had a blast during my trial, and we came up with two fantastic looks! She knew exactly the look I was going for, even though I struggled with the description (something bohemian, beachy, chic, BHLDN... she knew just what to do!) She and her team traveled to my hotel for the wedding day, which helped ease the stress of the morning! They were professional, fun, efficient with my large wedding party, patient, and perfected many different looks on my bridal party. My bridal hair looked absolutely stunning. People are still specifically complimenting my up-do.
Colleen and Aphrodite Salon were integral to my wedding day, and I cannot recommend them highly enough!
