About this pro

How does your business stand out?

My service is unusual because I work with my clients from start to finish; beginning with hair styling and makeup application the actual photo shoot and finishing with the final photo edits. As a makeup artist I have the power to help people see their own beauty more clearly. As a hairstylist I frame that canvas and as a photographer I capture and preserve that perfect pairing.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The best part of my job is my clients. I am a person who values relationships and while I do their hair and makeup I build a very strong connection with my clients. This personal relationship is very valuable when it comes time for the photo shoot because the rapport we have developed helps my subjects to feel relaxed in front of the camera. I especially love working closely with my brides to make them feel beautiful and natural on their special day.

    Incredible makeup
    Chantelle was incredible!! She is not only talented, but also so fun to work with, and really knows what she's doing. She was able to recommend several techniques to me that I can use on my own. I will only be working with her in the future!!

    Above and beyond
    I worked with StyleBee for hair and makeup services for myself and my bridal party and was beyond satisfied! Stylists were professional, friendly, accommodating, and overall contributed to a positive wedding day experience! I received many compliments, especially on my hair. And the ease of the stylists coming to us, rather than going as a group to a salon, cannot be overstated.

    Wonderful Experience!
    I had the pleasure of working with Chantelle'a company for my wedding. I scheduled with her for make-up for my bridesmaids. Chantelle was a pleasure to engage with & very accommodating! Our make-up artist was on time, very friendly, & engaged in conversation with all of the bridesmaids. I really enjoyed the fact that the make-up artist asked each girl specifically what she wanted & what she was comfortable with rather than just applying make-up however she wanted. Very pleasant. All of the girls looked beautiful & felt beautiful too :)

    Chantelle is simply AMAZING. She is talented and confident which is perfect because she made me and my friends and family look like us, but so much better! I highly recommend her for weddings, photo shoots, fancy events, anytime you want to look extra gorgeous! (Also, she's funny, sweet and a great person to have in your face for an hour!)

    Chantelle & crew were so great to work with for our wedding. I was so impressed with how professional Chantelle and her crew were throughout the process. We had several changes the day before and additions for hair/makeup and Chantelle happily accommodated us all. I felt beautiful on my wedding and had so much fun getting ready thanks to this company. PROS (from a bride to fellow brides) -The app alone is such a lifesaver and prevented so many headaches. My bridesmaids were able to schedule and pay for their hair/makeup through the app so I didn't have to worry about coordinating any payments (that convenience was worth it's weight in gold!) -Chantelle and her team came to us on my wedding day. It felt so luxe getting ready in our hotel suite and not having to go anywhere -Chantelle LOVES makeup and she's really great with it. She was open to my vision but gave me advice and trust me when I say that trusting her will give you awesome results :)

    Chantelle was the makeup artist for my wedding November 22, 2015. She was prompt, professional, warm, and most of all - made me look better than I ever have before. Her techniques are unbelievable! From contouring, to the individual lashes, my wedding day makeup looked AMAZING! Somehow she made me look like myself, but more glamorous. I would highly recommend her for special occasions, or for any time you want your makeup professionally done by a consummate professional.

    I used Stylebee for both hair and makeup for my engagement session in SF. Chantelle and Stylebee were so wonderful and flexible (I changed my appointment to a super early 4:30am start - yikes!). Shannon was my MUA and hair stylist - She arrived right on time and did such an amazing job. I don't think I've ever looked so glamorous! She made me feel so beautiful and confident for my engagement photos. Highly recommended!! Thank you, ladies!!

    Chantelle did my make up for my wedding along with 5 bridesmaids. She travelled to me and did an amazing job! We did a trial run and the make up day of matched the trial. Everything looked very natural with a focus on my eyes. The make up stayed put all night long without a need for touch up. Would definitely recommend Chantelle!

    Chantelle provided wedding makeup for me, 5 bridesmaids, and my mother. She did an amazing job making everyone look absolutely gorgeous and yet still natural and like themselves. My makeup stayed beautiful all night long -- after 12 hours, when I got home at the end of the night, it still looked incredible! She's also great fun to be around: chatty, funny, sweet, and just a beacon of light. She's exactly the kind of person you want around on your wedding day (or any day) to help you laugh and stay calm. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, have already recommended her to one friend, and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a makeup artist!

Although we come from different backgrounds I felt like I knew her my whole life! She is so personable, caring, detailed and a woman who knows what she was born to do. You will not be disappointed with any of her services.

    Chantelle is AMAZING. You would be totally crazy not to pick her! First of all, she's hilarious and a blast to spend time with. Secondly, she has mad skills. I hired Chantelle for my wedding and did both a trial run and the day-of with her. I have NEVER felt so beautiful while still feeling like I looked like myself. The make-up lasted all day, I didn't break out (bonus points!) and my hair stayed perfect and bouncing. On top of all this, she's incredibly affordable, responds quickly to texts/email and shows up on time. I seriously couldn't be happier and now refuse to hire anyone else next time I need my face done ;-)

    Chantelle did my wedding makeup and hair, as well as my Maid of Honor and my mother's makeup. I can honestly say we all got so many compliments the entire night - the look was flawless and I couldn't have been happier! The wedding was in Sonoma, which she traveled to, and was held for the majority outside - the makeup/hair stood the test - until dancing came along, then my hair does what it wants. :) Her pricing is very reasonable and the quality of work is great. I would highly recommend using her for any makeup/hair services needed.

    Chantelle is a wonderful make up artist and hair stylist. She is very professional and will be there on time and will work with how and what you want to look like. She will give gentle suggestions when she feels that something may go better for you but she respects your decisions and will do her best to create your vision. She delivers A++ service on her craft. Even when pressured for time she does an amazing job and she will not disappoint. My experience with her is excellent. I would hire her again an again if she lived closer to me! Not only incredicble skills and work ethic she is such a wonderful person to be around with! Just being around her makes you relax that you just forget all the stress! Bottom line, in my experience: I felt very pretty that day. The day before I was so scared I'd look like an ugly duck. When we finished the hair and make up she was one of the first to boost my confidence and there were certainly TONS of people who followed after her. I owe that whole experience to her. Thank you so much!

    Chantelle was AMAZING! She went above and beyond what I expected. I hired her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. She showed up on time ready to go. Like always in a great mood. My makeup came out perfect and stayed on all night (noon to 1am). I switched my hair last minute and she had no issue with it and my husband loved it. She also helped out my bridesmaids with some eyeliner and even did a quick up do for another. My photographer called and said she was running late so she wouldn't be able to take any pics of me getting ready. I was a little bummed......BUT CHANTELLE HAD HER CAMERA. She started snapping away and was able to get the shots my photographer missed. Thank you so much Chantelle for making me look and feel incredible on my wedding day!

    Chantelle did the hair, makeup and photo for my Maui beach wedding. I am very, very happy with the result. However what I appreciated the most was how she took the time to understand what my mother and sister really wanted. Both of them are from Russia, speak a little English and this was the first time they had ever experienced this kind of service. Even with the language barrier Chantelle was able to understand what they wanted and both of them said they had never felt as beautiful!

    I not only love the amazing job Chantelle did for my album promotional photos for my latest music release. But the fact that she offers photo, makeup and hair as a complete service package is so easy and allowed me with my very busy schedule to have the time during hair and make up to feel comfortable and get to know her. So that when the time came for her to start taking the shots we were on the same page. My hair was just how I like it, my makeup looked great on camera and the photos turned out really well. Thanks so much for a great shoot Chantelle and for being so collaborative and really connecting with how I wanted things done.

    I had Chantelle do my headshot for my Linkin profile. It was a great experience from start to finish and I love my final photo. I think that the fact she does photo, makeup & hair is more than convenient especially when she does such an amazing job of all three!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm constantly reading, watching videos and taking workshops or classes to improve my skill set.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
From my first visit to a makeup counter there was never a question in my mind of what I wanted. I had been coloring and painting since childhood, at twelve picked up my first mascara and I have not looked back since. I turned to photography because after I had been doing hair and makeup for ten years I was tired of seeing my work washed down a drain at the end of a day. I wanted to take capturing the images of my art into my own hands.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Studio portraits and headshots as well as large bridal parties and natural airbrush makeups.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
The photo, makeup and hair for country singer Jessie Farrells latest album cover.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you have a connection with your service provider. This is important because that connection will be instrumental the overall feeling of the photo shoot and that influences the end result. If you are having hair and makeup done make sure you get a trial. The connection/communication you establish with your makeup/hair artist during your trial is key to you feeling truly yourself.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That I am doing what I truly love! The best part of my work is that I am involved in such a personal part of someones experience on such a special day of their lives. It is a privilege. Also that it takes a lot of time and practice to achieve excellence and I have a lot of time in and practice continually.
