I loved Rose from the first moment I spoke with her on the phone. She is a sweetheart and she made me look and feel like a fairy tale princess. Rose is very professional and knew exactly how to work my fine hair and my pale skin into a gorgeous looking bride. I couldn't have dreamed to look better and I couldn't have asked for a more patient and knowledgeable hair&make-up artist. Rose kept me up to date and checked on me way before my wedding day which made me feel so special and helped to get ready for the big day. Rose even went the extra mile to help out my bridesmaids and my flower girl on the wedding day and made sure that everyone in my wedding party is ready on time. I am so thankful to you Rose and I highly recommend your services (make-up and hair styling) to everyone. Thank you for being part of my special day and thank you for your great services!

I cannot recommend Josanna more highly! She not only did such a beautiful job with my makeup, but she acted as my beauty coordinator for the day, hooking me up with my hair stylist and another makeup artist at the last minute for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. She was so sweet and supportive and was such a calming presence the morning of. I do not normally wear makeup so I was really nervous about how it would turn out and she did an INCREDIBLE job! She really listened to what I was looking for and made me look beautiful without looking too overdone. And the makeup lasted the whole day, even after many tears, sweat, and tequila shots! I could not be happier that I booked Josanna and will certainly recommend her to all of my friends!

I hired Cenorina to do my makeup and hair for a photo shoot. She was extremely flexible and willing to meet at my location, which was very convenient. She arrived on time and was very professional and friendly. I am very pleased with my experience and loved my hair and makeup! She gave me exactly the look I wanted! I asked her to make my eyes "pop" and the photographer kept commenting on how great my eyes looked throughout the shoot! Great service - I highly recommend her and would hire her again!!

Rachel helped with the makeover for the cast participating in a drama. The characters and makeup requirements were fairly complex and required attention to a lot of details to make them look authentic. She is knowledgeable in the steps, application and finishing touches necessary ! Thanks to her help, the characters, including mine, looked very professional and received many compliments ! Rachel's passion for her work and the dedication to her projects clearly manifest in the results ! I strongly recommend her talents and wish her well in her endeavors. -- Dr. M. S. Krishnan

Daidra is an incredible makeup artist! I've been watching her progress and learn over the years and I'm never disappointed! She has a very professional demeanor, but will make you feel comfortable at the same time. I trust her opinion on the latest trends and what works for me personally. Her mastery of makeup is obvious the second you look at her and her work. You can really tell that this is her passion because she goes above and beyond what typical makeup artists do!

Anna will make you a work of art! I used her for my wedding, and my bridal party and I looked like a million bucks. We had eyelash extensions and airbrush makeup. Her makeup is good enough for HD TV and it stays in place all day without feeling heavy or cakey. I also took advantage of Anna's spray-tanning service and it was a great experience. She chose just the right tone and applied it quickly and evenly, so my skin had a healthy glow. Her communication is excellent and she was eager to accomodate all our needs.

Chrysalis Rose provides makeup services and interactive artistic expression for all occasions and all ages.

Based out of San Jose and local to San Francisco, Chrysalis Rose is available throughout the wider Bay Area. Her services are also available for hire in the Los Angeles area. Beauty can be defined as: "The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality." Whether that form of beauty is a simple flattering makeup, a dramatic character makeup that enhances or disguises the features, or an extreme FX makeup, Chrysalis Rose can transform her canvas of the face and body in any number of artistic ways. Chrysalis Rose believes that Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and promises that the makeup techniques she provides will help to open your eyes to your own unique brand of beauty. All the world is a stage, and all the men and women are merely players. The makeup art Chrysalis creates and facilitates the ongoing play, and provides the magic of transformation for all the players as they make their exits and entrances in this life. Chrysalis' makeup is sometimes used for entertainment purposes, sometimes to help people become something else other than what they were before the artistic application, and sometimes to help people rise to a level of being so that they are free to celebrate or act in ways their natural selves cannot. Makeup can be corrective when necessary, however, it is the mission of Chrysalis Rose to use makeup to enhance what is already within, and bring it to the surface.

About

We offer the following services: * Makeup: Makeup can transform a woman’s appearance so that her true self comes through. The ideal is to look like yourself, but even more beautiful. Each of us is naturally beautiful without the use of cosmetics. However, for many of us, it's fun to apply a bit of face makeup to enhance our natural beauty. Every bride wants her wedding day to be perfect. This means finding not only the perfect dress, but the perfect makeup and hairstyle, too. *Updo: An updo is a hair style that involves arranging the hair instead of allowing it to fall freely. It can be as simple as a ponytail but is more commonly associated with more elaborate styles intended for special occasions, such as a prom or wedding. * Haircut: Do you need a change in your life?—nothing too drastic. Perhaps you regularly read the major fashion magazines, stare intently at your favorite celebrity's latest hair style and wonder whether now is the time to shear several inches—or more—from your current cut. * Color: • To return gray hair to its previous color • To change hair color to a shade regarded as more fashionable or desirable • Correction: to return hair to its original color after chemicals (e.g. tints, relaxers, sun bleaching) have discolored it. * Hair Highlights: Unlike a simple hair coloring, hair highlights can be magical and make a stunning impression. But also hair highlight can be very technical and artful jobs. Successful hair highlights also depend on your hair's health and texture. * Eyebrow Threading: Eyebrow threading is a preferred hair removal technique for a number of reasons. Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows. Eyebrow threading also will not harm the skin like wax and some depilatory creams can. * Keratin Complex: Keratin Complex has changed the beauty industry, starting with our "signature" Smoothing Therapy and continuing with a complete range of products and styling tools. Keratin Complex Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment is specially formulated as a revitalizing and rejuvenating salon treatment designed to eliminate up to 95% of frizz and curl. All Keratin Complex treatments and styling products are specially formulated to contain natural keratin protein, which rebuilds, restores and rejuvenates all types of hair. No more bad hair days with Keratin Complex!

I was a business manager for Prescriptives Cosmetics at Nordstrom for a year and a half, and I had been freelancing for Chanel Cosmetics from October 2008 until present day. For further qualifications and experience I can provide a resume and references upon request. Schedule? I’m flexible. Just let me know how when you’re special occasion is and we will work it all out. Simple. Fees? I charge $50 per hour. We can discuss together. If you have a bridal or special occasion party package, then the hourly is lower. Trial? Please email me your interest in my services and any questions or concerns, and then we can agree on an initial meeting or trial so you can meet me and I can recommend makeup and look. I’m sure once you meet me you will be convinced that I am the ideal makeup artist for the job, so the initial meeting is only $50 if you choose to book and $65 if you do not. Portfolio and website? Unfortunately, at this time both of these are a work in progress and will be available shortly. However, if you would like to see previous work I can email you pictures. Any other questions or concerns please email me. I look forward to hearing from and meeting you soon so that I may be a part of your special occasion!

About

Hello, I am Brianna Saldana. I have been doing hair for over 6 years, but have been licensed since 2008. I started out doing family's and friends' makeup and hair for special events, which led me to begin beauty school as a junior in high school. I fell in love quickly with enabling people to feel better about themselves. My favorite clients are the ones who want to try new things, those who trust me to highlight their best features, whether it's creating a leaner face with dimensional highlights, accentuating their high cheekbones, or a face-framing cut. Don't get me wrong; I also love those client who come in, knowing exactly what works for their hair. From the moment you sit in my chair, I always ask about your daily lifestyle because I believe that a good hair style is borne out of a good consultation. I anticipate meeting you soon and to finding a hairstyle that makes you feel amazing and works well with your lifestyle! I am an on-location hair and makeup artist for special events. Are you in need of an elite team of wedding specialists to make over your bridal party? Well, I can provide you all of that at a price that is exclusively made for you!
