Among st all of the wedding planning, I think finding a trustworthy and flexible hair and makeup artist is one of the hardest and most important items to find! After all, their work is what will live in ALL of your photos, videos, and family and friends memories! I found Mayra through Thumbtack at Make it Happen! From the start, Mayra was awesome. Very prompt to respond to questions, gave advice on ideas, and super accommodating to the changing # of women needing services. Her and Lluvia (hair) graciously were able to fit in one of my bridesmaids who initially did not want services until the day of and also my mom. What a relief! The trial was also a blast. We got to experiment with different ideas and also get to know their style. They are both so friendly, fun to be around, educational, and professional. I think the most impressive thing about both Mayra and Lluvia is their attention to detail. Mayra truly makes a canvas out of your face and applies makeup so diligently and meticulously. She blends the perfect shades for your complexion and genuinely considers what you like and do not like. She is also very inquisitive about what you like and do not like so she clearly understands what and how to apply your vision. Often times you show hair and makeup artists a pic and they can rarely match it - in this case they both matched the elements of the pics I was after that best fit my look and style. Every single one of my guests was blown away at their work and many of my engaged friends are now asking for their services. I am so thrilled for our pics!! Thanks again Mayra!

Rose was absolutely amazing! She did my wedding hair and makeup and did a fabulous job! She listened to and adjusted for my tastes and did an absolutely beautiful job. For my makeup she gave me amazing fake lashes that looks great and not overly fake. For my hair she put in extensions and did a great job creating a loose wave curl that lasted all night. I can't recommend Rose highly enough. She was also a blast to have around on the morning of my wedding.

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 amazing!!! Her work quality is exceptional. She was very prompt and was very responsive and flexible with my needs. Her price was very reasonable for such a great talent that she has. I am actually booking her again for my next event because she was so wonderful and everyone loved my hair and make up at my son's party. Thanks, Anne and I look forward to working with you again real soon!

Vinnia was fantastic!!! I couldn't have been happier with my wedding hair and makeup. All of my communication with Vinnia was done through email since I live out of the country. She was amazing at suggesting ideas for my hair and makeup. She was always very prompt with replying to my emails. I wasn't sure what to do with my hair since I was growing it out and I had only had my makeup professionally done once before. I showed Vinnia a picture of how I wanted my hair and she styled it turned out even better than I imagined. I had so many compliments on it! My makeup was beautiful too. Vinnia kept checking to make sure that I was happy and anything I wanted changed wasn't a problem at all. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their hair and makeup done too. Vinnia and her assistant arrived on time and had all of us done within the time frame she provided. There was no rushing around, it was very relaxed and pampering. My makeup and hair lasted all night long! I highly recommend Vinnia as a professional, experienced, and high quality makeup artist and hair stylist.

Cassandra does a phenomenal job at styling hair as well as makeup. I've gotten a handful of beautiful photos from working with her, and would always love to work with her again. She's definitely worth working with.

Liv came to my rescue when I found out my makeup artist/hair doesn’t do my engagement trial during weekend. Not only she was available but she gave me such a great affordable price for trial and wedding. She also gave us discount for eye lashes! I knew she didn’t have to do that. She always responsive when I have questions. She listens to my ideas/wants. She doesn’t pressure me with anything. She has a fun personable personality which is easy to talk to and get along with. I definitely will recommend her to people and will hire for future special occasions.

Working with Susan and her team was nothing short of spectacular! The worst part of wedding planning for me was inquiring with wedding vendors. Little did I know that the responsiveness and vendors highly varied--and when it came to finding a wedding hair and makeup artist, I was challenged by the prices and the lack of responsiveness. Sometimes it would take days to get one question answered, which isn’t ideal when you’re trying to make a decision. After about 20 inquiries with different artists, I finally was referred to Jireh Artistry from a friend in the wedding industry. It was such a relief to finally be working with such a professional individual! Throughout the process, Susan was extremely responsive and professional to all of my inquiries, which was a major win. As the wedding day drew closer, she was extremely helpful and accommodating to my changing needs. When the wedding day came, she and her team arrived on-time, and immediately got to work. My family and friends were so pleased with the results of their work, which makes me super happy. I absolutely loved my hairstyle, as well. We ended exactly on time, so we were able to carry on with the tightly-packed wedding schedule as planned. She and her team were so pleasant, efficient, and GOOD at what they do! I highly recommend Jireh Artistry and Susan. You won’t be disappointed with their work!

Amy is absolutely incredible!! Not only is her work amazing, she makes you feel so comfortable and really cares about her clients. She is very flexible and easy to work with. Living in Denver, I only had a short amount of time that I would be in California for the wedding, and she worked with my schedule to make sure I got a trial before the day of my wedding. On the day of the wedding, she was on time and she made sure she had plenty of time to get everyone's makeup done so we were ready on time! On top of that, she was very reasonably priced and worked within my budget. She also found me a hair stylist that fit in my budget as well! All of my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself loved our makeup and it lasted all night. Her makeup is beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. I would definitely recommend hiring Amy as she is definitely one of the best makeup artists I have ever hired!

She did my makeup for a dance at my high school and I was AMAZED by the results. I was getting compliments all night. She texted me directly and helped me to decide what I wanted to do. She's even able to take pictures that you send and change them enough to be unique. If you are looking for a very talented, organized, and friendly makeup artist or hair stylist for any event, Cynthia is the person to go to!

I really loved how Audra did my makeup and the makeup of my female wedding party for my June 2017 wedding. None of us really wears makeup regularly so we very much wanted to have a natural look for the wedding. Audra did a wonderful job enhancing our features and used excellent quality products. I was very happy with the results and thought all the women looked beautiful while still looking like themselves. Even my father who *hates* a made-up look said he thought Audra did an amazing job and that I looked beautiful, natural, and my age. Audra is also very sweet and friendly. I highly recommend Audra for your wedding or event makeup!

I am a professional singer and performer, I have dealt with hairdressers and makeup artists from all over. I have never dealt with a hairdresser or makeup artist, that has a more gentle and accommodating demeanor than Nadine! She literally lifted my spirits with her personality, and what she was able to make me look like! I highly highly recommend Nadine Michelle for makeup, and or hair, for any function where you want to look and feel your best! Absolutely excellent work! Sage

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.

Cynthia was excellent to work with! She came over and got 7 of us ready for my wedding. She got through all of us in just under 4 hours and we all looked beautiful! Her trial was very thorough and she wanted to make sure she had the makeup just right. :) She also provided a list of beauty and makeup products she recommends. Cynthia was an absolute pleasure to work with, I've already referred her to a friend for her wedding as well! I hope to work with her again in the future!

I came to thumbtack looking for a great makeup artist to do my makeup for a holiday party I was attending. Amanda reached out to me here on thumbtack with a quote. After looking at her photos and seeing how responsive she was, I decided to go with her as my makeup artist. He communication style is very clear with no hidden costs; she is upfront with pricing and is very competitive for the quality she offers. She arrived at my house at the appointed time and set up all of her equipment. We talked a bit futher about the style/look I was going for and then got started! She was wonderful to talk to and made the process easy and very comfortable. The look came out beautifully, bold/smoky eyes with a subtle cheek and lip. Applying smoky eyes or any eye makeup to asian monolids can be challenging, but Amanda had no problems and made me look glamorous. I highly recommend her if you are looking for quality of work, responsiveness and an all round wonderful person to do your makeup. Next time I need my makeup done, I know exactly who to reach out to.

Hazel was recommended to me by a friend. I don’t wear makeup often and so I had a lot of questions. She was super sweet and we talked about the style of hair/makeup done for my work event—she even responded to my questions while she was away on vacation! Hazel was responsive to my suggestions and I found the fact that she wanted to prep for the appointment refreshing. She is the upmost professional and made me feel so comfortable in my skin. The makeup lasted the whole event—it even lasted an hour walk in balmy weather. I wouldn’t think twice to book her again.
