Introduction: I’ve been doing makeup and hair for over 30 years. I have experience in film, TV, videos, photography, HD, weddings, corporate headshots, model’s portfolio, special occasions, birthdays, proms, red carpet, celebrities and the list goes on and on. I’m a perfectionist and pay special attention to details. I’m really good at taking directions and really understand what my clients want. I aim to please and do what ever it takes to make my clients happy. I can look at a picture and duplicate whatever you want. I’m truly an artist and create art with every face that I work on.

Wedding and Event Hair Styling

Doris was so sweet and efficient with 7 girls on my big day. She was able to work with all different hair textures/thickness to give each of us what we envisioned for the day! I only utilized hair styling services from her, but we had a makeup emergency and she was able to swoop right in to the rescue! I would definitely recommend her for your next event. :)

Wedding and Event Makeup

Doris did make-up and hair for my courthouse wedding. The end result was phenomenal. She is so amazing! I never ended up doing a trial with her but she had such wonderful raving reviews that I trusted it would be ok. Even before I met Doris, through all my text exchanges with her, she was able to pinpoint my desires make-up and hair look. During the actual date, Doris was very accommodating and super nice that I felt at ease and comfortable. She's a great conversationalist too! And all her reviews were so right! She made me look and feel like a princess.  I highly recommend using Doris, you will be so happy that you did!

Wedding and Event Hair Styling

Doris did an excellent job stying my hair for my wedding. She worked to create a style that was probably not the easiest with the amount of hair I had, but she thought it was the one that was the most fun and would help me to look and feel young. I loved it and received many, many compliments. She also did four others and they all looked great.

Wedding and Event Hair Styling

Doris did an amazing job on mine and my bridal party’s hair and makeup. All of my bridesmaids couldn’t stop talking about their hair and makeup! She listened to my concerns about my hair and my wedding look was exactly what I imagined. I would definitely hire Doris again!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I really like to get to know my customer before I start. I really want to know what is their comfort level. How do they normally wear their makeup. It's great they provide a picture so I know what they're looking for, but I really want to know what their makeup experiences is. For an example you may see a dress in a magazine you like and you want that dress, but perhaps when you buy the dress, it doesn't look the same and you're not happy. The reason for that is because the dress color may not look best on you or the dress is suited better for the model and perhaps your body type is different and it doesn't look the same. So that's the same for makeup as well. I like to modify makeup if I feel the customer needs it. I'm pretty intuitive with people that I work with. I can almost guarantee how much or how little I need to adjust the makeup to please the customer.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As I mentioned before I did go to modeling school and after modeling school I went to makeup school in Toronto where I'm from and graduated with the highest honor of the school. I studied mostly fashion and print makeup. Then I moved to Hollywood and studied more for film, TV, special effects, corrective makeup, ethnic makeup and you name it I learned it. I won best makeup artist my school year. Then years later I decide to learn airbrush makeup. I studied for that in Costa Mesa.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    My background is mainly in film, TV, photography and working with celebrities. So I'm very trained and conditioned to work with demanding schedules. I've started to work more with clients not related to the industry as of recent and find it much more relaxing, since it's on our schedule. It feels more laid back and fun because there's not the same pressure. You feel like you can be friends with your customers since it's a more casual vibe and not having 20 people scrutinizing your every move. Don't get me wrong, I still love doing my shoots. This type of opportunity on Thumbtack is a welcome change.
