I had such a great experience with Annaliza doing my make-up and hair. I reached out to her for head shots and she gave me a very natural look just as I wanted. She was on time and was completely prepared. She used high quality skin products and make-up. She made me feel at ease the whole time and was so much fun to talk with as well. I appreciated that she took her time. I would definitely use her again!!

Annaliza was amazing to work with! She does an amazing job! You can tell she knows exactly how to look at your best with her long time experience. She made me feel so glamed up once she finished. I recommend going to annaliza for make up and hair styles for any events, she will not disappoint!

I hired Sabrina to do hair and make-up for my mother and I for a family photo shoot in Las Vegas. Sabrina (and her associate Marie) arrived at our hotel room a few minutes early, and were ready to start right on time. For my make-up, I had some pictures to show Sabrina - she was receptive and very excited to excute and educate me on the look I chose. My mother did not have a picture, but provided Sabrina with direction as to her likes and dislikes. Both of our final products were everything we asked for! We had an equally wonderful experience with Marie and our hair. I have clip in extensions, which Marie clipped in and styled perfectly. As part of the package I booked, Sabrina and Marie stayed through the entire photo shoot, making sure that each of us looked our best throughtout the shoot (even my sister who used a different hair and make up artist who did not stay through). Sabrina and Marie were both incredibly personable and professional, which can be a hard combination to find, and I truly appreciated getting to know them throughout the 5 hours we spent together! I will be using Sabrina again next time I am in Las Vegas!

I have hired Sabrina on numerous occasions to do my makeup for the Oscars, the Grammy's and many other events over the last few years. I can always count on Sabrina to make me look and feel fantastic. I have recommended her to friends and clients of mine and have heard nothing but wonderful feedback about her work and her charming personality. Sabrina is a pleasure to work with on all accounts and is very reasonable with her rates. She is always my number one go-to makeup artist.

The young lady in question gave a masterclass in make up on more than one occasion, with work ranging from the subtle and sublime to outrageous depending on what each situation required. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

I'm a women of color I was very skeptical going on the web looking for someone to do my make-up for my big night I'm really glad I did and run into Rebecca. she also did my daughter make-up. we were both very impressed with her professionalism she is the real deal we love her if you are looking for a reliable person that knows her trade she is the one would hire her again in a heart beat & will.

Rebecca showed up to my short film project on time and professional. She asked about the characters to make sure she was giving the right look. She left make-up behind so we could touch up hours later. It was a 12 hour day and my make-up was still camera ready.

Where do I begin? Once Audrey does your make up and hair you never want anyone else to do it. I'm not getting paid to say good things about her I'm just telling the truth. She definitely loves and enjoys what she does. You can tell by the way she socializes with her clients and how she doesn't stop trying until you are 110% satisfied with her service. For me she was willing to drive quite a ways to make sure I didn't have to stress out about traffic on my big day she made sure she had the right color extensions for my hair since I had a blonde ombre and it was a little more difficult than people with one solid color hair. On the make up trial day she wasn't mad that I kept changing my mind about how I wanted my eye shadow or what kind of lashes I wanted. She was very bubbly and patient. Couldn't have asked for anyone better to do my hair and make up for my big day. I will definitely tell all my friends and family about her and at my next event when I need my hair and make up done ill definitely be seeing her again. All in all I was very satisfied with her service. Everyone should give her a call because she is AMAZING!!!

She's awesome ! Punctual and make-up stood the test of time. Make-up was done at 6 a.m. and still looked great at 11p.m. Only thing that i need retouching was lips of course, but she provides you with your own lip item to keep :-)

Mary was FANTASTIC!!! I’m so thankful we went with her!!! She does BEAUTIFUL MAKE-UP for a great price!!!! All of my bridal party, including myself and my Mom totaled 11 girls had their make-up done. Mary also brought her wonderful assistant Brianna to keep everything on schedule and we were done early! Mary is so accommodating, and even did a free trial for me in October. I had so many compliments on my Make-up that two of my Bridesmaids want to book her for their weddings in 2018. Thank you to Mary for being wonderful, sweet, and puncutial!!!

Mary is an excellent make-up artist! Very talented and professional. She does a great job LISTENING to you and doing whatever you'd like... Something you don't find in all make-up artists. But if you have nothing in mind, she's also great at recommending a look that's right for you and choosing colors/products that accent your individual features. I always leave happy! Thank you Mary!

I needed my make-up done last minute, and Amanda answered the call. She asked good questions about what I was looking for, made sure I understood the process, and my make-up turned out just as requested. She was very accommodating (I have some make-up and brush allergies to contend with) and very pleasant. Would recommend!

Sandra is amazing! She just gets shit done and she does it very well. Sandra was my make up artist and stylist for my graduation and I couldn't have made a better decision. Her expertise is so on point and she's also very honest about what works well and what doesn't, which I appreciate because sometimes I have wacky ideas. She is professional and is very responsive, which is helpful for an antsy girl. I highly recommend Sandra!

The first time I used Vergara Make up and glam I had a very important photo shoot . I can say I had the best make up I have ever got in the last 10 years in LA. The most important thing when I get my make up done is to look classy and sophisticated. I haven't got my make up done with anyone else after Vergara make up glam .

It was such a great experience she made me feel comfortable to get ny make up done by a professional. And when she was done i wasnt scared to look in the mirror, i have been to those store that offer free make up when you buy their products and i end up leaving wanting to wash my face . On the contrary i didnt want t wash Miss Olivares make up off, i couldnt stop taking selfies of it .

I usually dont write reviews but Veronica literally saved my hair! about two years ago I asked my hairstylist (i wont put his name on blast) to lighten my hair. All i wanted was choolate brown ( i was a dark brown already). He said he had to beach it and then dye it...i was ok with it...he ended up burning my head! I got blisters all over ( i still have neck scars from the blisters, they're sooooo ugly). It was like movie....when he washed my hair (after i was almost crying because of the burning) my haor started to fall out!!!!! I was left with verrrry thin,brittle, and crisppy hair. I was so embarssed. I was left with no choice but to find aaother hair stylist. I was referred to Veronica by a friend. As you can imagine i was skeptical and hesitant about letting someone touch my hair. But i reached out to her anyway and im glad i did. She condotioned my hair and nursed it back to health and didnt charge me an arm and a leg to do it! She got the ugly color out of it and taught me how to style it without having to use any straightners or curling irons. My hair is thick and healthy now. She is really sweet, patient, and afforable (and she even makes house visits 🙌). Now i use her for everything! Her and her team are doing the hair and make up (i love he way she does my makeup... she makes me look like a persian goddess and im mexican lol) my wedding and i couldnt be happier! I hate to share her (my secret beauty weapon) with everyone. But i know how terrible it feels not to feel like yourself because someone burnt your hair, cut too much, or charged too much. If your looking for a miracle at a descent price, call her! Thank you for all you've done for my haor Veronica. I hope this review was helpful guys.

I highly recommend Veronica Guerrero. I have long thick hair and no one else can ever get the cut right.I love the blending of my cut layers. She has also dyed my hair and always looks natural. On special occasions I also have her do my makeup, she always knows how to create a different look. I am always satisfied. Her prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend her for any of your beauty needs.

Ana is by far one of the BEST and most professional make up artist I have ever dealt with. I didn’t have an idea of what look I wanted for my wedding so I let her work her magic trusting she would get me a good result. Well, she actually doubled my expectations, my look was beautifully natural with a touch of glamour that made my look one for the books. Her team managed to get me and my bridesmaids ready in time without ever feeling like they were rushing. Totally keep Ana and her team in mind for all my future events.

I didn’t give Ana much to off of, but she was still able to create a great look. It shows her talent. I appreciated her taking the time to match the foundation to my neck (because I hate when my face make up doesn’t match my neck), and her cleanliness (using a disposable applicator for example).

Paty is super knowledgable in the field of fashion styling and makeup trends... she reads a lot and does her research so you can be sure that she is up to date with anything that's going on in the fashion world. That being said, she applies that knowledge whenever she works with a client by using real world references and the client's taste. With a couple of quick glances she is able to pinpoint which type of clothes would look great on you according to your body shape and which color palette will make you look radiant! Then she makes sure to test that theory thoroughly while in the process addressing your concerns, like hiding a problem area or making your features look more refined, etc. I solicited her services for an event styling in which she dealt with my indecisiveness pretty well. At the end it all worked fine because of her expert eye and also because of her welcoming and accommodating personality. With Paty you are not only getting the best advice so you can look amazing but also great customer support and a good friend! Loved her work, her bedside manner and her warmth. You can't go wrong!

My overall experience with Jenny was so comfortable and fun! I had her do my make up for my wedding including my bridesmaids and I have no idea how she finished 6 faces in the time I needed her to, but she did it. She was made us look beautiful and made us feel at ease. I'm not one to know much about make up and she explained the whole process so I was aware what she was doing. She was super cute. Gave me suggestions and was just amazing. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! 😁
