Simply the best! I found Mayra via Thumbtack just over a week before my wedding. I sourced some images of looks that I liked so we had something to work with. Mayra did a trial with me a few days after we first communicated. What attracted me to Mayra were the reviews, and her gallery of images. On the trail the first look she did had me worried as it wasn't what I felt comfortable with, but I told her what I didn't like and she toned it down and I felt much more comfortable. I did tell her that on the wedding day I would like to tone down the look further. My wedding was a very small intimate affair. There were only 3 other ladies in my bridal party (three of us of West Indian heritage and one of European parentage) I asked Mayra to do the make-up for all four of us, with two of use requiring hair styling. Mayra said she would bring a team with her. My hair is in sister locs, and the other lady required a blow out (European heritage). I had photo images of the hair style I had in mind, and the stylist Mayra brought with her who did my hair could not have done a better job. She was able to recreate the hair style to suit me. It's just over a week since I was married and although I've yet to see the official wedding photos, I have seen the candid snaps of the day and I have to say that Mayra and her team did a fantastic job on myself and my bridal party. We all look like ourselves - but just that bit better. They were able to enhance our natural beauty. Mayra and team were professional in their demeanor, timely in their arrival, and friendly. I am so grateful to Thumbtack for this wonderful service, and feel truly blessed in finding Mayra. She is simply the best!
Rose is the best! She's an amazing professional, with unmatched quality of service and efficiency! She made me look 30 years younger on my wedding day (yup, that's what everyone told me). I couldn't have had a better hair stylist and make up artist! She's truly heaven-sent. I highly recommend her, and I'm blessed to have her get me ready for my Big Day! What an absolute treat!!!!
They were great! All my bridesmaids looked beautiful! The stylists were very accommodating and were very professional.
She was AMAZING!!! From the trial to the actual day, Anne was a consummate professional! She did an excellent job of listening to what I wanted and delivering for not only myself, but my bridal party. Everyone raved about how beautiful I looked on my wedding day. I was most proud that she enhanced my natural beauty! I felt like true royalty!!!
Vinnia is amazing! I hired her for my bridal hair and makeup and she gave me a perfect soft/romantic look I wanted for my big day. Thanks again Vinnia!! :)
Incredibly happy with our experience. Liv is a true professional who highlights your natural beauty
Jacqueline is the sweetest person. She came earlier than the scheduled time and we went over what I wanted. I was attending a wedding and my makeup was done so beautiful and I looked glamorous. I had so many compliments and guess what. , even with the 114 degrees of heat, my makeup stayed fresh all day and night. I did not want to clean my face before going to bed😀 I recommend Star High Beauty to everyone!!!
I first went to to yvonne after years and years of mediocre hair results. I didn't know my hair had the potential it did until my hair collided with her mastery! I realize now, u don't truly know what having amazing hair is like if you've never experienced it. I even saw a different stylist, after seeing her, when she wasnt available and i was desperate. They were good....but they werent yvonne. Since then, i didn't allow anyone else to touch my finicky and borderline untamable hair. I live in NH and yvonne was in VA....i literally would fly to her just to get my hair done!!!! If that doesnt speak volumes, then i don't know what does. Then yvonne sold her salon and moved to California......i died inside! It wasnt the salon that stole my heart.....it was yvonne, so going to the same salon was not, and is not, an option in my mind. I knew she would feel awful if i expressed this to her, so i waited.....and longed for the possibility of her return. I went 2 years with not allowing another soul to even so much as trim my hair. I finally caved and told her. This phenomenal woman ended up going out of her way to recommend a comparable stylist, and then spoke with him through facetime and messaging for HOURS, guiding him through my hair and my personality so that i got the best possible outcome. She did all this from across the country, without hesitation, and with nothing to gain from it. There aren't words for the empathy this woman possesses, nor for her insane skills! Although her temporary replacement was great, he is not her. Once you've had the best....u can never have less than it. A client for LIFE!!!!!
Jennifer is very professional and attentive to your needs. She's a very sweet hair stylist as well. I super love my make up and hairstyle (curly) that she did for a wedding event that i attended. I received so many compliments. Thanks to her.i will definitely recommend her to my family and circle of friends.
got bridal hair and make up. she was very friendly in makin g sure that i got what i wanted. still in the decision process but i think i would hire her again for other events. the only thing was that my lashes fell off as soon as she left. im not sure if it was the glue. otherwise loved the dark eye makeup and the lips
Best hair stylist around. Guaranteed to make your bridal party beautiful
Jasmene is an incredible artist. Her abilities and professionalism is exceptional. She is knowledgeable about skincare and hues. Also she color corrected a hyper pigmentation. You will be completely satisfied with her work.
As a former magazine beauty editor and now on-air beauty expert, I've worked with tons of makeup artists over the years. I met Liv when she did my makeup for my sister-in-law's Napa wedding, and since then, she's been one of my favorites. I loved how she made my skin look flawless and glowy without caking on the product. She chose beautiful neutral shadows that magically made my eyes appear bluer and bigger than ever. I highly recommend Liv. She'll make you look like the prettiest version of yourself.
Hazel is a professional makeup artist and superb hair stylist. Listens very well to what you want to achieve and talks you through each step she performs on you. I was very satisfied with my results and received many compliments. I definitely will use Hazel again.
Jelise was AMAZING! She is a sweetheart and did a great job with my makeup for a video shoot that I did with my band! I am hiring her again for our next video shoot because of how great of a makeup artist and person she is. She was punctual, nice, did a great job for my hair and makeup, and was even talkative (in a good way so there were no awkward silences)! We were happy with her work. Jelise, you are awesome!
Nina is not only sweet and kind, she’s also super talented! She did an amazing job with my hair and makeup! High attention to detail and enthusiasm to get the job done right! She knows how to playup your natural beauty and contour your face to give you that perfect look. She also does a killer job with eyebrows! For special events, Nina is my go-to girl for hair and makeup. :)
I was searching for a local makeup artist who uses natural beauty products, and could come to my home. Tessa fit the bill. She was both pleasant and professional. As a mature client, I was especially happy with her ability to make my under eye circles much less noticeable while not piling on a ton of makeup. I am learning how apply makeup, but think it it well worth the price to have an expert such as Tessa complete a look from time to time.
Carina was great at doing my makeup, and hair. I was happy with my hair and makeup.
Laila was completely wonderful and I loved getting my makeup done! Really enjoyed the whole experience! Beautiful makeup.
Taryn did an amazing job on my makeup for my wedding along with my bridal party of 10! She was on schedule and easy to work with. We had multiple trial days and she made sure I was happy! Taryn was also very knowledgeable about what type of makeup/look to use for what I wanted. She had ALL the make needed and if she didn't she would get it! She was amazing and I highly recommend her!!
Always a pleasure working with Loreah. She is super sweet and personable. Also very knowledgeable with the products and the latest trends. Highly recommend her to do your makeup for any event.
