Mayra helped me, my sister, my mom, and my mother in law with all our hair and make-up on my wedding day. Everything was perfect! She traveled onsite to Sonoma, was prompt, helpful, and friendly. I had full confidence in her skills. She did an AMAZING job on the hair and make-up for everyone! I loved how great my hair and make-up looked. The make-up was natural and not over the top. I would highly recommend Mayra for anyone looking for bridal hair/make-up!

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 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.

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!

Liv & her assistant went above and beyond for me, my 5 bridesmaids, mom, and 2 aunts on the day of the wedding!! Liv always had a positive attitude, through texts and in person, and has an uplifting spirit. Despite the hectic early schedule and very long wedding day, they pulled through by being on time and were very accommodating to do my mom and aunts' makeup last minute. Later in the day, Liv was able to go to another location for our reception to do our touch ups, and I loved her response that all she needed was an outlet to do her work! As a bride, she did her best to make it as stress free as possible, and making everyone beautiful. I definitely would recommend her to everyone! Thank you again Liv :)

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

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.

Audra was wonderful to work with for my small backyard wedding and she was a delight to have present on my wedding day! Such a kind and welcoming personality and very professional. She did both hair and makeup for myself and my two bridesmaids and all three looks were beautiful. I wanted a more natural look and she listened to all my requests and delivered exactly what I wanted. Very punctual and arrived on time for both the makeup trial and day of wedding services. Easy to communicate with and set up appointments. I highly recommend her!

I've known Olivia since about June of 2016 (from EWC) and I knew she was a trained MUA so as soon as I got engaged, I asked her for a trial. I was blown away! Not only did she pay close attention to what I was looking to achieve, but she also gave me great tips and pointers. I ended up loving my trial makeup but wanted a few small changes for the big day. She was extremely welcoming of my points and kept on telling me that all she wanted was for me to be happy. When my wedding day rolled around, she arrive on time and with the most cheery disposition and positive attitude. She expertly made her way through my bridal party, starting with my MIL and mother. Both are in their 60s and the makeup she did on them was flawless. They looked radiant, and not overdone (which is quite tricky to achieve especially on older women). Both ladies LOVED their makeup. My bridesmaids also looked absolutely stunning, and Olivia even did a little bit of makeup on my 5yr old flower girl. Each time, she worked with each girls complexion and colouring to compliment their own look. When she finally got to me, she was patient, caring, and just a dream to work with. She didn't allow me to see the work in progress because she wanted me to be surprised. Let me tell you that when she gave me the mirror for final ok, I was so crazy in love happy!!!! (if I could swear to convey how happy I was with my makeup I would). I looked natural, radiant, effortless - even the hubs complimented on the makeup! All in all, Olivia is amazing. I will definitely come to her over and over again, and keep on recommending her to other women. Brides- do yourself a favor and CALL OLIVIA!!!!!! PS: she has a GREAT personality and will quickly become your friend :) Love you O

Taryn did an amazing job on my makeup for my wedding along with my bridal party of 10! She was on schedule and easy to work with. We had multiple trial days and she made sure I was happy! Taryn was also very knowledgeable about what type of makeup/look to use for what I wanted. She had ALL the make needed and if she didn't she would get it! She was amazing and I highly recommend her!!

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. :)
