Working with Teresa to coordinate hair/makeup for myself, my bridesmaids and my groom's mother was amazing! She was professional, approachable, and flexible. She worked with my schedule to find a trial date that worked for my bridal hair/makeup. She also was very flexible in accommodating my large bridal party. She traveled to us, allowing us to get ready in the comfort of our hotel room before traveling to the wedding venue. She offered valuable advice on hair styles and makeup to myself and my bridesmaid, and her work was flawless! She made me feel beautiful and confident on my wedding day, and I can't count the number of compliments I received on both my hair and makeup that day. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Chantelle's team was great, and everything worked out perfectly for my wedding hair and makeup. Chantelle organized stylists to do the hair and makeup for me, my mom, and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. The stylists, Reese and Shannon, were amazing and I was thrilled with them! I completely recommend them!

Anne was fantastic. I've worked with almost a dozen makeup artists and she was most definitely the best. I showed her a picture of how I'd like my makeup and she did a phenomenal job so quickly. The makeup lasted all throughout the day and night and I received so many compliments. I will certainly be requesting her service again. If I could choose one word to describe her work- FLAWLESS!

Amanda is fantastic! She has such a passion for her art and it completely shows in her work. She did my hair and makeup on my wedding day and it couldn’t have been more perfect. She listens to what you want and gives her own suggestions to make you look and feel amazing. Not only is Amanda is extremely knowledgeable (I’ve def emailed/texted for advice!) and a perfectionist but she’s so fun and great to work with! I would highly recommend Amanda for any and all of your makeup needs!

Pearl was a pleasure to work with. We had a hair/makeup trial plus 5 hairstyles/3 makeups on the day of the event. She was punctual and super professional. She is truly an artist, she made us look beautiful and natural. She really brought out our best features. I will definitely recommend and will hire Pearl again for all my future makeup needs.

Meghan did my hair and makeup for both engagement photos and the wedding. She was a joy and she is so talented! The makeup looked flawless, and I don't usually wear much so I was very hesitant about getting a full face. I'm so glad I trusted Meghan because she made me look GOOD! The wedding hair in particular was amazing. She had studied up on photos I shared and had a game plan to execute on an amazing wedding hairdo. Meghan is also super cool, chill, and such a great calming presence on what could be a stressful day. I got a little nervous at one point and she totally diffused my nerves. Recommend you book this gal now!!!

Maria was amazing at our video shoot for "prom looks" yesterday! She was professional and very accommodating, and worked quickly. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a skilled and very kind makeup or hair stylist.

I was in search for a makeup artist to do my wedding for months until I finally came across Melissa. She schedueled me a trial run and completely took my breath away! She did exactly what I asked for and was so sweet and professional :) I felt like a princess on my special day and my bridesmaids looked gorgeous! Melissa is an awesome and talented lady who knows her stuff!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist! :)

Rachel did an excellent job on my hair and make up for my bachelorette party! She was so sweet and fun to work with and managed to make me look extra fabulous in only an hour! I felt so beautiful and had so many compliments all night on my hair and makeup. My makeup still looked good even when we ended the night at 4am! I would highly recommend Rachel and would not hesitate to use her in the future if I was in San Francisco and needed to look extra special for an event.

Corina was wonderful. My daughters hair and makeup looked great. And it all lasted through the Prom and after. She took her time and paid close attention to detail. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get their hair and makeup done for an event.

Madison is truly talented, and she didn't shy away from any idea or style that myself or my bridesmaids threw at her. The day of, I decided I wanted a different hairstyle than what we had done at our trial (of course!). Madison didn't hesitate to make the change, and the outcome was better than the photo I had shown her! My bridesmaids were free to choose any style of hair and makeup, and again, no hesitation from Madison or her partner for the day. Both artists worked quickly, while also taking their time with each person. Everyone was more than satisfied with their look, and many guests at the wedding had complimented what a beautiful job they'd done! The price was also unbeatable! I had received quotes from other artists in the area that charged double or triple for the bride than "wedding VIPs." Since I wasn't doing anything over-the-top, I didn't see the value in spending 2 or 3x as much just because I was the bride. Madison came up with a great package for us, and it was beyond reasonable. I HIGHLY recommend booking Madison if she's in your area! Her work is amazing, and you'll feel and look like a goddess after!

Christina is by far the best makeup artist in the Bay area. She has an incredible ability to find the smallest nuances of a persons face and use her abilities to highlight features and minimize flaws. She is also fun to work with and puts her clients at ease.

Samantha did a phenomenal job on my hair and makeup for my wedding and made me feel like a princess. She was on time and totally willing to accommodate the long treacherous drive that is Highway 17 all the way from Redwood City! I was worried about how my thin hair would affect what I wanted done and Samantha made me feel confident that I it wouldn't affect a thing and she used product that thickened my existing hair and covered up my scalp. Thank you for everything Samantha! If I need any work done again I will be coming up to visit you.

I first met Maya on Feb 21, 2015 when she came to my house to do my hair and makeup trial for my wedding that was to take place in May. I had only made contact with her a couple weeks prior, but she happened to be available when I needed her. Maya had originally informed me that she expected the trial to last around 3 hours. I had my mom and some girlfriends over to help provide their opinion. I really wanted braids in my hair, and Maya did my hair many times over with various braids, and ending up staying 5 hours to get everything just right. She is very patient and really takes the extra time and care to get everything exactly the way you want it. She was also very helpful when I asked her about flowers in my hair for the wedding. She did not know offhand but did some research and checked around and came back with suggestions. She is extremely helpful and it is important to her that her clients are happy. She came back to my house on my wedding day, May 2, 2015 and did my bridesmaids hair, my mom's makeup, and my hair and makeup. It could not have been more perfect. I am not used to wearing a lot of makeup, but Maya insisted that more would look better in photos. She could not have been more right. The photos came out fantastic, and I received many comments from guests that my hair and makeup were amazing. I would hire Maya again if I needed my hair and/or makeup done for another occasion.

Carmina was great!! Loved my hair and makeup for the black tie wedding I attended. Received lots of compliments for her work. She's quick, efficient, and has an eye for beauty - she's also super friendly and personable and made me feel completely comfortable while doing my hair and makeup. Highly recommend her!

Jaiya has cut my hair for years and has always done an exceptional job. She reliably performs the same cut when I want it and I've never been afraid to trust her with something new when the inspiration hit. She has also fixed cuts when I have had to get my hair cut by other stylists. Jaiya is a very visual person and can both listen and communicate about the shape of a cut. She is attentive to detail and is very conscientious. She is also a warm and gracious person which always makes getting a haircut a more enjoyable experience. I regularly recommend her to my friends!

This review is so long overdue! My mom and I hired Crystalyn to do our hair and make-up for my debut party, and to start off, she came right on time and started right away with my mom's hair. My mom really enjoyed getting ready with her, and I'm able to agree with her. When Crystalyn was working with my hair and make-up, we talked the entire time! Other than the fact that we both enjoy cars, we also went to the same high school and college! I enjoyed my time with her, and it made me think less of the stress I had incoming for my debut. I looked and FELT flawless, and I couldn't thank her enough! I'd definitely hire her for another one of my events in the near future if anything!
