Cori is amazing. She styled my hair the morning of my wedding. She made my mother and each of my bridesmaids look beautiful as well. Cori has a talent for hair and makep! I am so happy I had her there. She even made my hairpins out of my great grandmother’s string of pearls. Truly an artist and a professional!

Cori provides a unique and fun experience to hair and makeup. She puts her spin on traditional ideas and makes you love your choices that much more. I highly reccomend her for all your styling needs.

Cori Lee does a tremendous job with color and I see her about every 8 weeks. I love her because after all my visit my grays are gone, hair shiney and I feel like myself again! And of course, Atomic Salon has the best atmosphere and coolest stylists in Raleigh.

Cori Lee did my hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding. I have never felt so beautiful as I did on that day. Cori Lee was on time, professional and easy to get in touch with. I have recommended her too all my friends. I would absolutely hire Cori Lee again as I was extreemly impressed with her talent and great attitude!

I can not say enough about this girl!! Cori did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. She is truly a master of her craft. From the inital meeting we had about hair, to a follow up meeting to do makeup, she make me feel very comfortable. I am a tomboy, there is no getting around that, and I NEVER wear makeup (I mean never), and Cori got me excited about wearing makeup and looking like a BEAUTIFUL Bride on my special day. I asked her to stay with us because she traveled over an hour to do my hair and makeup. I was blown away by the help that she gave me. Her service was above and beyond what she came to do!!! I didn’t have bridesmaids, but I made her my honorary maid of honor that day!! She stayed by my side to help me with anything I needed (got me a beer while I was getting ready, helped me set the last few wedding items up, helped me get into my dress, helped the photographer set my dress up for photos, adjusted my train, bustled my dress, cleaned a spot of food from my dress, among MANY other things! 🙂 My day was that much more perfect because she was there! And I am even happier to say I now have a new friend!!

I loved working with Cori Lee for my wedding hair. I came to her frustrated with a month to go before my wedding. I had appointments with another salon in Raleigh who canceled my trial on the day of my Bridal portraits. There was no chance to reschedule, so I was styck finding another person with only a few weeks to go. Cori listened to what I wanted and was flexible with me. She did a fantastic job and I was so happy with how it turned out!

Cori did an excellent job with the makeup at my wedding. She was willing to come to the location and do makeup for lots of people, including mothers and the wedding party. Cori took the time to understand each personality and tailor their makeup accordingly (i.e. children, mothers, etc). Needless to say she also did a fabulous job with my makeup and I never had to worry about it. I would highly recomment Cori to anyone!
