"Exciting, Classy, and Fabulous Act for a Party"
I hired Hazel for my sister's bachelorette party and she was absolutely wonderful! About a month before the party, I told Hazel some things about the party and about my sister's taste and she specifically chose an act that she thought my sister would like as well as gave me an estimate for the party. From start to finish Hazel was really easy to work with; she was accommodating and very prompt with her responses. For the party, Hazel arrived right on time and was great about communicating with me via text to make sure my sister didn't catch on to the surprise. Her act was amazing—she is so gorgeous and had on an awesome costume (she was very sparkly)! Her dancing was beautiful and graceful and sexy all at the same time. My sister said she was perfect and all of the guests were wowed by her. I'm so happy I hired Hazel for the party. It was something exciting, but classy and fabulous—not your run-of-the-mill bachelorette! - Katie D.
"One of my Favorite Showgirls"
"I've had the pleasure of working with Hazel countless times throughout the past 3 or 4 years, and she remains one of my favorite showgirl/models I know. She spares no detail in her costume, makeup and styling, and brings an infectious positive and sweet energy to all gigs. Hazel is as charming as she is talented, and will add an unsurpassed loveliness to any stage, photoshoot or function." - Shien Lee, Dances of Vice
