    Jennifer was amazing! I was doing a boudoir photo shoot and I was new in the area. I found Jennifer and she got in contact with me really fast. I was looking for pin up hair and makeup and she blew me out of the water with what she did! It was everything i could have imagined! My photographer kept remarking on how fantastic my hair and makeup looked! I highly recommend Jennifer!!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I do on-location Wedding Hair and Makeup, Bridal and Bridesmaids gown alterations, personal styling, wardrobe and beauty consultations, skincare, and BeautiControl product sales. I am something of a Wedding Fashion and Beauty Concierge, to put it simply. If you book your wedding dress alterations as well as your bridal party wedding day beauty needs with me, I will bring a steamer and a sewing kit in addition to my makeup and hair kit, to your location on the day of your wedding and I will be there to be of assistance should any garment issues arise as we get prepared for your wedding!

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. 1. I did bridal makeup in downtown Spokane. The bride's sister-in-law was so sweet, she purchased my services for the bride as a gift. She accidentally over-paid me by $50, and I noticed the discrepency shortly after I left the venue. I called her right away and she thanked me for being honest. I immediately sent her a check the following week, with a refund check for the $50 that she had over paid me.
2. I took in the sides as well as hemmed a heavily beaded and lacey wedding dress with a full sirt. The bride was ecstatic about how the dress turned out as well as the price and quick turn around. The bride had one day to get her dress alterations as it did not come in from the manufacturer until two days before her wedding, so the manager at the boutique she purchased it at, personally delivered it to my home, where then she immediately came for a fitting shortly after. I then proceeded to work on the dress into the evening, I called her when it was ready, and then she came back and got it that night. She went to her wedding, dress in hand, and fitting beautifully!
3. I did alterations, makeup, hair, and airbrush for a gal, as well as makeup and hair for her whole bridal party. Read her review on Weddingwire.com (her name is Bernie). It was so nice I cried a little. : )

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. The most common question is - "How much do you charge?" I post my prices and services on my website, htp://www.jashleysellen.vpweb.com.

The next common question is "what type of makeup do you use?" I use my favorite products from several lines such as eye shadows from Urban Decay and Too Faced, Eyeshadow primer, concealers, bronzer and color correctors from BeautiControl, Strobe Cream from MAC, Voluminous Mascara from L'Oreal, etc.

"Do you travel?" YES! I will go to you!

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. I wish that my customers knew that I am able and extremely talented at hair, makeup, airbrush, AND wedding dress alterations and custom design as well as fashion design. In most cases, my brides don't realize I do all of it!
