I hired Mayra to do hair and makeup for myself, my mother, and my bridesmaids for my recent November wedding at Nestldown. From the beginning, Mayra was responsive and organized as we worked to schedule an initial trial. One of the reasons I gravitated towards Mayra was that I wanted to look beautiful but relatively natural on the day of the wedding (I am not a makeup wearer in my daily life). Her work is just that--absolutely beautiful and glamorous, but also natural. At the trial, Mayra nailed it! I felt so beautiful that I was sorely disappointed I didn't have plans to go out on the town after the trial. Due to lack of clarity myself about my hair, I did schedule a second hair trial. Mayra was supportive, flexible, and gracious about helping me reschedule and emailing with me to help me better articulate what it was I was hoping for in my wedding hair. What she produced at trial two was spot on. On the day of the wedding, Mayra was a wonderful calming presence, and of course, made me look and feel absolutely beautiful, like a beautiful natural version of myself. In all my interactions with Mayra , I loved her warmth and friendliness. I feel so honored to have had her as part of my wedding day team and am so pleased I went with Skyla Arts for my wedding beauty needs :)

I hired for hair during my wedding & my bridesmaids were very satisfied with the way their hair turned out. I was so happy that the stylist arrived on time & they were ready to work. They were very sweet. The only issue was that after they were finished they asked for a 15% gratuity per person after I had already signed a contract stating that the service was paid in full & that the company was to distribute money to the stylists. According to the contract everything was included AND it stated in the contract that I was not to give the stylist money. It was awkward to have the stylist upset with me & demanding money. I asked her to call her company b/c I had already paid in full according to the contract for their gas, time, & styling. It was resolved but it was awkward! I'm still very happy with the final product :)

Liv is awesome!! I first went over to her studio to do a trial, she has TONS of makeup and can do anything you can dream of. She did both my hair and makeup for the trial and day of and they both came out lovely. During the trial she made me feel comfortable about things that I may have wanted to change around, do less/more of etc. and was SO understanding and cool with changing things up if I didn't feel comfortable with something. On the day of my wedding we were scheduled to meet at 5am at my house. She actually came by early to set up and was so chipper and happy to be there, she put me in a great mood! My makeup and hair came out exactly what I wanted it to! And also my makeup lasted over 10hours with barely and touch up!!!!!!! Thank you Liv!

She's extraordinarily talented and professional! I love her work!! She did my Hair and Makeup for a professional photoshoot and I absolutely loved it, the care and time she put into making me beautiful were a clear reflection of her fantastic skills which made me feel more confident than ever and resulted in the most fantastic experience I've ever had when getting dolled up by a true doll and professional makeup artist like her ! I totally recommend her if you're looking for an outstanding MUA!

April is fantastic. I had her come to my hair for my city hall wedding, and she was collaborative from start to end. I shared a Pinterest board with ideas and she was perfectly able to pick up on what I liked and how to make it work with my hair type. She was fast, fun to spend time with, and my hair looked great. Can't recommend her enough!

Christina and her team were amazing! They were available last minute when my hair and makeup lady cancelled on me 2 weeks before my wedding. I had 9 people needing hair and/or makeup and also had 2 last minute people added as well as some of my bridesmaids coming late and they were totally cool with all of it and got everyone done on time.

Besides always leaving looking amazing and feeling so beautiful I love how honest and sweet Mari is. Always gives me her very honest opinion which shows so much about her character as a person. I love someone I can trust with my hair and won't try to upsale me on doing other things. She is the absolute best! My hair is so curly and grey but she makes it look fabulous everytime. She also doesn't overbook herself. When you are there she is all about you which is awesome not many hairdressers will do that. I am so glad to have found her! She is a gem.

Ruth is awesome! She was able to take do my wedding updo like a pro! I almost gave up looking for a hair stylist given that I had 3 failed hair trials before I found her. But luckily, Ruth knows how to style and care for curly hair without damaging or burning it. I will be doing my hair with her again in the future and I suggest you do so too!

Hazel did such a great job on my hair. I was the maid of honor for my best friends wedding and I wanted to go with an "old holly wood" look. I showed her a picture and she delivered. She came to the house and was right on time. She had everything readily available and we got to working on my hair right away. She was very funny and kept me entertained the whole time and made me feel very pretty. I loved the outcome of the hair and makeup done by Sophea and so did every one else. I would highly recommend her and will use her again in the future. I am the girl the blue dress. :)

Kayla did my hair and makeup for my engagement pictures.... twice. The first time it rained so the pictures were cancelled, but I loved her so much I went back to her a second time. She actually came to my house at 5am to get me ready for a sunrise photo shoot. She was so professional, knowledgeable, so sweet and friendly, so detailed, going above and beyond to exceed my expectations and make sure I loved how everything came out and I absolutely did! She does amazing work and is such a genuinely good human being, I am so grateful to her and I look awesome in my pictures thanks to her.
