I absolutely loved having Mayra do my hair and makeup for my wedding, and can't recommend her enough! Having Mayra do my hair and makeup was one of the best decisions I made for myself. She took time and care from even before the wedding. She gave me tips in advance on how to best take care of my skin and hair before the wedding day, and also advised me on who I might have in the room while getting ready, and how to best take care of myself. She helped create an atmosphere of calm on my wedding day and she was so at ease that it helped me feel relaxed. When there was a problem at the hotel with room where I was supposed to get ready, Mayra changed rooms with me, helped me navigate the problem, and took it all in stride. Mayra is an incredibly experienced and talented makeup artist, and it showed. WhileMayra listened to what I wanted, she also gave me ideas and helped me figure out what would look best. We met before hand for a trial so that the day of I could just relax. In the end, my hair and makeup were gorgeous. My makeup looked natural yet special in just the way I had hoped, and my hair was beautiful and stayed throughout the night. Her work far surpassed my expectations. Depending on how the bride wants to look, Mayra can surely make it happen. Not only does she make you look and feel amazing, but Mayra is a great person to spend time with, the kind of person you want to have with you on your wedding day. I'd give her many more stars if I could!!

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.

I'm so happy I found Vinnia to do my wedding hair and makeup. She was very professional and attentive. She remembered my feedback from the trial run and was very flexible with the bridesmaids and moms adding additional services the day of the wedding. Everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup. Thank you Vinnia!

I had a contract for myself and 2 of my bridesmaids. It included Bride makeup & hair and for my 2 bridesmaids only make up with lashes. Months before the wedding I had sent out pictures of the make up and hair due we desired. The day before my wedding Cassandra texted me the pictures I had sent to her previously of our looks. She said make up artist Ayana would arrive at my hotel door at 5:30 am to set up and start my hair @ 6:00am, then bridesmaid #1 @ 7:00am for make up and 2nd bridesmaid at 8:00am for make up then to follow it would be myself @ 9:00am to do my makeup. I agreed and said it was great sent her my hotel room number. I was aiming to be done by 10 am. Her make up artist Ayana showed up 1 hour late. I had called Cassandras mobile number 2 times and left a voicemail, she then texted me back at 5:55am," Hi! I just called Ayana, she must be running late! So Sorry!.." and "Just spoke with her. She's driving from San Mateo and said she'll arrive by 6:30 or so, which is more than enough time for everyone! No worries!!!" She started to work on me at 7:00am. Ayana did half of my hair and while doing it she used our crulying iorns because she only brought one. I was completely fine with it. Ayana mentioned that Cassandra never told her to show up @5:30am that she took the job because it was a last minute thing and Cassandra had no one else to do the job. She then continued with my make up & it did not come out nearly what I had previously sent to them. I was still optimistic being that it was my wedding day and I wanted things to go smooth. She did not completely finish my work and started working on one of my bridesmaid at 9:50am. By this time we knew she would not be able to complete my 2nd bridesmaid make up, therefore my bridesmaid left to MAC to try and get her makeup done. Luckily they took her in. My bridesmaid that had her makeup started at 9:50 am was still not complete and it was already 11am. I was not able to take pictures with my bridesmaid due to timing. Every one was running late. Finally, the bridesmaid who left to MAC came back looking flawless and Ayana had ask to take a picture because she would let Cassandra know she did not have time so she had to go to MAC. My other bridesmaid make up was HORRIBLE and rushed!!! 11:15 am and still not complete. She was also unaware that we were all doing lashes because she said Cassandra did not inform her. This was a very disturbing experience and I am looking forward for a refund! No bride should ever go through anything this horrendous. Moral of the story, if you have a small bridal party do not book them because you will not be their priority!!! Cassandra and I had a few text the day of my wedding. Anaya had lied and sent her a picture of my bridesmaid with MAC makeup and tried getting credit for it. I instantly gave her a little background of what had happened and Cassandra said she was not late and that Anaya had more than enough time to finish all three of us. Such a bad experience. Looking forward to getting refunded. Bianca Acero

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.

I was extremely happy with Amy's work on my wedding makeup and would highly recommend her. Before the event, she was always quick to respond to any questions I had. I told her the look I was going for and she was right on the mark. She is very pleasant to work with and became an extension of my wedding party very easily. My mother was never able to decide what she should do with her hair, but Amy was there with her services. She was very accommodating even though we were unprepared. She was so incredibly helpful with other things besides makeup. She even helped out in me getting in my dress. I was very fortunate Amy was there and she made my special day even better and easier.

I hired Cynthia to do hair and makeup for my wedding party (bridesmaids and flower girls) last Sept. 16th 2017. Cynthia is an excellent makeup artist. She was on time, stuck to her schedule and did wonderful job with my girls. Me (bride) and my girls and the flower girls are absolutely look stunning when she finishes up the makeup and hair. I never been so beautiful before until the day of my wedding, she definitely transformed my beauty into the highest level! I received a lot of compliments during and after my wedding. I personally recommend her to do your makeup and hair, she has a lot of experience and she knows what to do even if we didn't had to do a trial, I can tell based on what she did to me and my girls. Thank you Cynthia for making me look like cinderella on my wedding day!

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!

Nadine did such a wonderful job with my hair and makeup for my wedding! She also did hair and makeup for my sister and my mother. She and her colleague arrived promptly to setup in our hotel room at the wedding venue and they were fun to have around all morning as we were getting ready. Nadine is talented, kind, thoughtful, and really listened to what I wanted. I didn't have to worry about a thing - she took care of everything! And she was one of the best priced hair/makeup vendors I found during my search of the Santa Cruz and Bay Area.

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 so sweet and such an amazing artist. I was a little nervous to have my makeup done but she has such a beautiful eye and really listened to what I wanted. I would book her again in a heartbeat and if I were getting married in the area I would ask her to do my wedding makeup (which is saying something)!

I’ve received tons of compliments on my makeup and photos thanks to Jasmene’s listening ear to hear what her customer wants and be able to actually execute the look. Thank you!

Tiana did my makeup for my entire wedding party. Not only was she on time and knowledgeable about the specific products that would work best for each of my bridesmaid's faces, she was very professional and caring. You could tell that she is very passionate about her work and it reflected when all my wedding guests asked who did everyone's makeup!! I have been recommending her to several people and she is definitely staying in my contacts for future services. Thank you again, Tiana!!

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. :)
