Phoebe and Vanessa did the makeup and hair for my bridesmaids and I on our wedding day. Not only were they so great and easy to work with but the makeup and hair looked BEAUTIFUL. Their pricing was extremely reasonable and their work was phenomenal. Both my trials went exactly as I had pictures and Vanessa even teamed my hair the day of when I had a different idea of what I wanted-and it turned out better than I had hoped. Both girls were easy to get ahold of, checked in with me as the day got closer and were very punctual. With 9+ girls to do hair and makeup on, they had their work cut out for them and they did it flawlessly!

I hired Phoebe for my wedding day makeup/hair. She did such a wonderful job with everyone's makeup. She made sure each girl was happy with the work she did and would make any adjustments if they asked. Phoebe accommodated my large bridal party and worked with me so we didn't have to be up too early on my wedding day to complete everyone's hair/makeup. She was very sweet, professional and does wonderful work! My makeup looked great and stayed on all evening. I would definitely hire Phoebe again in the future!

Phoebe is an amazing and talented makeup artist.. She did my makeup, my bridal party's makeup, the flower girls and mother's makeup for my wedding. She took her time and dolled us all up. She made me look beautiful for my day. We all did the airbrush foundation which is great and stayed on ALL night. My whole party was happy with their results. I would 100% recommend Phoebe for your wedding or any event where you are looking to get your makeup done. :)

Jacqueline did my bridal airbrush makeup and hair. She did an amazing job! She came to my home which was comfortable and convenient since I had a lot of things to do that day. Her price is very fair. She applied airbrush and worked hard on all the details of my face. My face ended up looking flawless and Jacqueline spent the extra moments to make sure everything looked perfect. After my makeup, Jacqueline listened to some ideas I had for my hair. She did exactly what I had envisioned and my hair looked great! I got so many compliments on my makeup on my wedding day and I was so satisfied. I will definitely be calling Jacqueline again in the future. I would recommend her to anyone.

I highly recommend Jacqueline. At my request she showed up with a colleague to do my hair & makeup & my cousin's hair, for my wedding. We were running late and had a major fiasco at the hotel we were getting ready at. The ladies were so patient & helpful. Even helped us get all of our stuff out of the flooding hotel room and stayed and helped me get my dress on. My hair and makeup came out exactly how I wanted it. The price was the most reasonable I found. Thank you again ladies!!!!

Sara did my mom & mother in laws make up! She did both my hair and makeup for my wedding and we absolutely LOVED IT! Our make up lasted all night the only thing we had to retouch was of course our lips! Not only did she do an amazing job but she's such a wonderful person she knows how to talk to you & she makes you feel like a friend like if you've known each other for a while. She has a very nice personality & is very professional! I would highly recommend her! Absolutely loved her work! My mom already wants to hire her for my sisters quinceañera which is still 3 years away that's how much we lived her work! We will definitely be doing our hair and makeup with her. Ps My mom had so many good compliments, she could not stop talking about her makeup all night lol ! My mom has always had a hard time to get good coverage on her skin because of spots that she has and Sara made her face look flawless you couldn't even see her spots!

As a model, I've worked with countless hair and makeup artists. My least favorite part is how long the process takes, but then I decide the time investment is worth it for the finished product. However, Andrea has enlightened me to a whole other possibility. Andrea worked quickly...far more quickly than any other professional I've encountered. More importantly, my hair and makeup were perfect...better than professionals who have taken their time. If you are looking for a friendly, fast, quality professional, look no further!

I hired Andrea for hair and makeup at my wedding last month and have nothing but wonderful things to say about Andrea and the quality of her work! Her team was also amazing: all of my girls (5 bridesmaids, 1 flower girl and 2 moms) loved their hair and makeup, and I couldnt have been happier with how everything turned out!!! She was professional, kind and executed everything I wanted.

Lily makes magic happen! My makeup and hair were beyond incredible! She communicates often and makes sure you get what you want and need. She was thoughtful, kind and worked well with my four women who had both makeup and hair done for my wedding . We all looked like magazine models without being caked with makeup or fake looking. My wedding party totally recommends her and her ability to make magic happen! Hire her, you won't be sorry!

Christine is an artist. Her work is top notch and I'm soooooo happy I chose her as the makeup artist for my wedding. She is caring and professional. She really listens to her clients and executes what they envision. I am a minimalist when it comes to wearing makeup (i.e., I only wear eyeliner and lip gloss on a daily basis) so I was really nervous about feeling the "cakiness" of makeup and wearing fake eyelashes for the first time. I wanted a more natural look but wanted enough makeup to look good for pictures. Christine did her magic and made me feel comfortable with everything. Airbrush is a godsend! It felt like I wasn't even wearing any makeup! The products Christine uses are very high quality and she takes such great care of her craft. She also did an amazing job on all my bridesmaids who were of various ethnicities. A few of my bridesmaids told me horror stories from being in other weddings and having their makeup done, so they were extremely happy with their experience with Christine. Everyone looked so good for my wedding! I will definitely be a returning client. Get Christine as your MUA for any special event. It will be one of the best decisions you will make.

I don't even know where to start! Christine is incredibly sweet and so good at what she does. My makeup was beautifully done for my wedding and I am so happy that I choose her to be apart of my special day. She was on time and the thing I love about her is her charismatic personality. My bridesmaid and I loved her work. You won't be disappointed. Thanks Christine for making my special day a memorable one. Melissa March 25,2017

I can't say enough good things about Steph!! I hired her to do our hair and makeup for my wedding. We don't live in California so we didn't get to do a practice run but it didn't matter, I was thrilled with the results! I interacted with several hair and makeup professionals but from the start, Steph was the most professional and most on-top of everything. Everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup, and it lasted all night. She was able to take our ideas, offer some advice and get us the look we wanted. Hire her! She will make you feel beautiful and special!

Phoebe provided excellent service to my mother in law and myself. She did our hair and makeup for a wedding we were attending in Carlsbad. She was kind enough to come to the hotel we were staying at, at a reasonable fee. She addressed some makeup allergy concerns that I had and made sure to avoid them at all cost. Because of her gorgeous work, everyone at the wedding complimented us on how gorgeous we were. Thank you Phoebe!! We definitely know who we are calling when we having weddings to attend to in SoCal.

Phoebe is a genius! I hired her to do wedding hair and makeup for my niece who lives out of state. I've never seen my niece look so beautiful! And the best part is that Phoebe got my tomboy niece to wear eyelashes and the makeup was light and natural enough that she didn't take it off all night! A+ work Phoebe!

WOW!!! AMAZINGLY TALENTED women!!! They did an AWESOME job doing my bridal makeup and hair and 2 other women and one 12 year old girl in my group! I thought my trial makeup and hair were awesome!! My “day of” makeup hair exceeded the high expectations they had already set for them!! They are fun, friendly, talented, punctual, and their goal is to make you the most beautiful you can look. I cannot say enough about how phenomenal their work is. All night I heard about how I looked stunning for my wedding on October 14, 2017. My hair looked breathtaking, my makeup was stunning! If you are looking for a dream team of hair and makeup for your event, do yourself a favor and hire these women!!! They are worth every penny and more! 10 out of 10 stars from me! They went above and beyond and their prices are the most reasonable out there! I will definitely hire them again for all of my special occasion hair and makeup needs.

Her assistant was also great and everyone loved their makeup, even my mom and grandma! Her prices can't be beat for the beautiful work she does and I highly recommend her for any special occasion where you want to look your best!

Chrissy did my hair and makeup for a wedding that I was a bridesmaid in this past weekend. Originally I was having her just do my makeup but then my hair lady canceled on me and Chrissy with no hesitation agreed to do my hair as well. She did an absolutely amazing job and made me feel so incredibly beautiful. She came to me and made it so easy for me to relax and just feel pampered without having to worry about anything. She is professional, very nice and most importantly does a wonderful job of keeping true to what you're wanting. Thank you Chrissy!

Murien is a talented make up and hair artist. Not only is she creative, talented, professional and efficient but also has the gift of being a master with ALL hair types. My daughter is of an Italian, Mexican, Carib Indian, Native American and African heritage. She has our family trademark of super long, thick beautiful curly hair and if not properly cared for can easily look like a lions mane. We've tried several hair stylists in San Diego and struck absolute gold when we found Murien. Not only does my daughter LOVE her results but she refuses to let any other stylist touch her hair. Why? Murien understands as a mother herself the plight of dealing with "tender-headed" children and what a delicate situation that can be. Murien demonstrates the utmost patience and works quickly to transform my little 10 yr old lion cub into a beautiful princess. I'm most impressed that my daughter has not ever shed a single tear in Murien's chair. What's more is that she does my hair too which is a much different texture- always with the same stunning results. I recommend Murien's services wholeheartedly to all of my friends and co workers knowing that they're going to LOVE the results. In fact, I was fortunate enough to book Murien for my wedding - she made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world and I will forever be eternally grateful for the day we first met this amazingly talented young woman. From makeup to hair- there is NOTHING this woman can't do. Thank you Ms. Mur!!!!

I cannot be any happier with how my and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup turned out on my wedding day. Murien took my ideas and requests about how I envisioned our looks on my special day and she enhanced them. She knew exactly how to highlight my look to have me stand out as the bride while keeping my girls all uniform in look but stunning. Murien did hair and makeup for myself and 4 other girls. She was quick, organized, and we finished earlier than expected so we were on time for the day. On time? You don't hear that very often during weddings! I was concerned that my future husband would not like my makeup since he is not a fan of me wearing too much of it. Murien listened attentively to my concerns and on my wedding day my husband loved my makeup. She also took special care with my concerns regarding my bridesmaids' look. In the end, I was happy, my husband was happy, my bridesmaids were happy, we received numerous compliments throughout the night, our looks stayed fresh throughout the day, and our pictures look amazing. So if you want someone who knows how to do your look right, who understands how important your day is, and will make you feel amazing look no further than Murien.

Murien did my hair and makeup for my wedding and I was extremely happy with my look! I didn't have any ideas for the type of style I wanted but Murien was still able to give me a classy and polished look. I felt beautiful on my wedding day and am happy with my wedding photos as well. She came on time and went beyond what was expected of her. I can tell that she is passionate about hair and makeup. She recently did hair and makeup for another wedding that I was a bridesmaid for. She made sure the whole bridal party looked good but had the bride look absolutely stunning! I'd recommend Murien to anyone who wants to look and feel beautiful for a special event. You'll love her :)

Never have I felt so beautiful in my life. When Julie handed me the mirror after she was done with my makeup I wanted to cry. But, I new better because I did I would ruin my makeup. She did my makeup for my wedding and I felt like a queen. My makeup was flawless and looked like it was airbrushed which it wasn't. She has a light had and so much talent. I wouldn't go to anyone but her if I needed makeup done in the future. Julie you're the best!
