I happened to find The Eye Lash Make up Artist because I had a huge stack of brochures (bridal expos and shows) and just went through it. I forgot to book a stylist, so I was cutting it close. Luckily, there was an opening for my wedding date. The main reason I went with them is because they've done plenty of people of different races who have looked great. (I'd rather not be one of the first few Asian test runs) A good majority of stylists did not have pictures of people of color and if they did, their makeup was not particularly impressive. I really appreciated Mayra patience in dealing with me because I had issues to deal with and didn't respond quickly and had a really wish washy bridal party that didn't know if they wanted hair or make up or both or none. Mayra did cost adjustments almost to the day of my wedding and I had to ask Heather about adding on an additional 2 services on the day of. If I had to deal with some one like myself, I'd be a bit annoyed. I had Heather for hair and make up and she was fabulous! We were not particularly helpful on what we wanted, i.e. clueless, but she gave us ideas, tried a few things, and it worked out wonderfully. Even though we tacked on 2 more services at the last minute (thanks Heather!), she still finished everything on schedule. We even ended up ahead of schedule at one point and took a break for a bit. Everyone loved their hair and make up and all of us received compliments. I had a trial done and it was great, but the day of looked even better. The wedding day was a bit windy and the groom kept bumping my hair and smudging my makeup, but my hair and makeup still stayed perfect until the end of the night. Even the fresh flowers that were in my hair. Pictures came out with us looking great! We all enjoyed Heather's company, especially the hair and makeup tips. :) I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for hair and makeup.
Rose is the best! She's an amazing professional, with unmatched quality of service and efficiency! She made me look 30 years younger on my wedding day (yup, that's what everyone told me). I couldn't have had a better hair stylist and make up artist! She's truly heaven-sent. I highly recommend her, and I'm blessed to have her get me ready for my Big Day! What an absolute treat!!!!
Finding a stylist for my wedding was probably the most surprisingly difficult part of the planning process. We wanted someone to come to our home, but we also couldn't afford to pay wedding premium prices. Most of the stylists I contacted charged over double for the bride's hair and makeup styling, but thankfully Teresa does not! She and her assistant did a fantastic job on everyone's hair and make-up- from Grandma to the bridesmaids. She asked for pictures for everyone's desired hair-dos, and everyone was pleased with her work. I have a seriously crazy amount of hair, and Teresa pulled it into a gorgeous french twist that didn't budge all night. She was very receptive to feedback, and was very reliable, calm, and easy to work with. Thanks Teresa!
Chantelle was so much fun to work with and very good at her job! She was flexible in coming to meet us at a very early hour before traveling with us to the photo shoot, and she worked closely with us to capture our stylistic vision for the photo shoot. We were very happy with both hair and makeup and will be working more with her in the future on styling projects for our business. Thanks, Chantelle!
I arranged makeup / hair session with Anne for my in-laws for my wedding day. Anne kindly found a hair stylist for them as well. They were on time to meet them, and my in laws were very happy with them. Nonetheless to say, they showed up to my wedding, confident and comfortable. We are thankful for Anne's accommodating attitude and team work.
I hired for hair during my wedding & my bridesmaids were very satisfied with the way their hair turned out. I was so happy that the stylist arrived on time & they were ready to work. They were very sweet. The only issue was that after they were finished they asked for a 15% gratuity per person after I had already signed a contract stating that the service was paid in full & that the company was to distribute money to the stylists. According to the contract everything was included AND it stated in the contract that I was not to give the stylist money. It was awkward to have the stylist upset with me & demanding money. I asked her to call her company b/c I had already paid in full according to the contract for their gas, time, & styling. It was resolved but it was awkward! I'm still very happy with the final product :)
Vinnia was amazing! I did not have time for a trial of my hair and makeup, but I sent her some images of what I was looking for, for myself and my two bridesmaids. On the day of my wedding Vinnia arrived on time and well prepared. She set up quickly and started with my two bridesmaids. Her hair and makeup were amazing! I don't think I have ever looked as good as I have on the day of my wedding! Not only did it look great for the ceremony but it survived the whole night, including a lot of dancing (and sweating). My bridesmaids also loved their hair and makeup and were simply beautiful. If you need someone to do your hair and makeup - look no further! Vinnia was very responsive before the event and very easy to work with. She is very professional and I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
Liv is the best stylist a bride could hope for! My stylist cancelled the week before my wedding and Liv stepped in to save the day. I was running late and in a rush for hair+make up but Liv was ready to go with her suitcase full of tricks! We were instant besties and we had a great time laughing and chatting while she transformed me into a beautiful bride. My family even said I looked like a model. She's a true pro!
What can I say about Susan? Only that she is the best I have come across for hair extensions! I've been going to her for years now. She is professional and meticulous at her craft. My hair is growing now and not damaged anymore like it used to be from going to other stylists.
Jennifer is very professional and attentive to your needs. She's a very sweet hair stylist as well. I super love my make up and hairstyle (curly) that she did for a wedding event that i attended. I received so many compliments. Thanks to her.i will definitely recommend her to my family and circle of friends.
April is an amazingly talented stylist. I have hard hair to tame, very frizzy and curly and full, and she knows exactly what to do to make it look great every time! She takes her time and makes sure it is perfect. I appreciate the patience and passion she has in her work. She is not just a stylist but an artist. You know she loves her work and it shows. Would recommend her to anyone, with any type of hair or style they are looking for.
Eric helped me update my wardrobe after I lost a lot of weight. He has extensive knowledge not only about fashion, but about the processes, techniques, and historical nuances the industry is built on. He also knows San Francisco and the stores there very well, often having personal contacts at every store we visited. Additionally, he was able to help me learn both how clothes should fit, as well as how to create endless combinations: something which I was never taught and have always had trouble with. I highly recommend Eric for any and all stylist consulting.
I absolutely love Mari! She always does a great job on my hair! I appreciate that she never chops more hair off then I want , unlike a lot of other stylists. I also love her so much that I will be trusting her with my hair and makeup on the happiest day of my life! I know she will do an amazing job!
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!
LOVED working with Team Bridal Beauty! Christine was very responsive from my initial inquiry and throughout the whole process. I booked her for my bridal party for my wedding. We had Christine for our hair and Aline for our makeup. My girls looked beautiful and their hair/makeup looked perfect all day. I would highly recommend Team Bridal Beauty for any event that you want to look your best, especially your wedding day.
Great stylist!!!love her
Shelley Golden is not only talented as a stylist but a delight too! On our shopping outing, her eye for colors and putting together outfits was spot on! Her suggestions gave me a fresh perspective from other stylists I've worked with in the past. Shelley brings in her unique experiences with textiles, her varied background as a stylist and world traveler living abroad. I highly recommend Shelley for any woman or man who's wanting to be seen in an updated way from the same old, same old.
Working with Nicole was a dream. I would highly recommend her as a personal stylist and plan to work with her again soon. // A bit of backstory: I'm a 5'7" slender (size 2) woman in San Francisco in her late 20s. And shopping stresses me out - too many choices, not enough guidance, and I don't want to spend the time reading through Cosmopolitan, Elle etc to figure out what style works and what doesn't. Because of the above, I've worked with a personal stylist before when I lived in New York. I walked away with many nice and expensive 'classic' pieces from Bloomingdale's, none of which really fit my style and none of which I wear today. I look at that experience as a waste. I felt very nervous trying this again, but knew I needed to give it a go. My goal was to finally nail a capsule wardrobe so that I wouldn't have to think about each individual piece anymore -- without spending hours of my life on research -- so that I could just feel comfortable and confident in my look. // Working with Nicole Nicole is very down-to-earth and very approachable. In our first phone call, she asked about my goals, my body type, my favorite stores and more. She then put together a Pinterest board and sent it over to me. And here is the PERFECT example of why I'm SO glad I worked with a personal stylist in the first place... Because I looked at the Pinterest board and thought, "Oh, how dull... these pieces are so basic and too loose to accentuate my figure." But then my boyfriend (a visual designer) took a look and said, "Actually, the length of this top would accentuate your torso," and "The cropped length of these pants would make you look taller," and "The draped look makes you appear slimmer than a tight one" and so on and so forth, enlightening me to all the fundamental principles of style that Nicole had subtly understood and applied to fit my body, that I never would have picked out for myself. With that I was sold. // Once in the Mall I love the styles in Aritzia, but the last time I went to their two story store I spent three hours but walked out empty-handed and deeply frustrated. Nothing I had picked out actually worked on my body, and I felt at once helpless and somewhat pathetic at spending all that time, trying on all those pieces, and not being able to land at something that worked for my look. With Nicole, I tried Aritzia again. She had pulled out several pieces all waiting for me when I walked in -- and they all fit like a glove and were exactly what I was looking for: chic, comfortable, casual, yet polished and with a touch of class. I was so excited at finally having found the pieces that could be a base for my wardrobe that I insisted on going through the store again together, in case we had missed something that might work just as well; and found nothing. She had picked out exactly what worked for my body type, exactly what worked for my style, and I wish I had trusted her eye and thoroughness from the beginning! // In Sum If you're looking to nail your wardrobe once and for all, and not have to spend hours stressing about it, buying pieces that you ultimately return, and just love what you wear without thinking about it, then work with Nicole. Just do it. You won't regret it and you'll have hours of your life back and compliments (and confidence) galore. Thank you, Nicole, and look forward to working together again soon.
My time is limited and spending hours scouring stores for “that dress” seemed a daunting and distasteful task. Jessica was not only helpful in identifying my style but was able to locate the perfect gown plus accessories that reflected my taste. It was perfect. Working with someone of Ms. Barr’s caliber is exactly what one wants in a professional stylist. I highly recommend her service, you will be delighted.
I am an artist from Puerto Rico. Urban poetry and true self epression are what define me. It is important to me that I project what I truly feel and also the same freedom that I express through my work. I visited the west coast a couple of months ago. Needless t say the style, the pace, the perception is very different to what I am used too. From the start Yarilis didn't just show me what was going on with the scene I come from, in the Bay area but also helped me translate my message/style to the west coast in a confortable way. Helping me understand the differences that needed to be made and why. She is very patient for i am very difficult to work with when it comes to changes in my appearance. She did a good job for my expression was not changed. Fresh combinations, bold statements, aggressive subtlety. She knows the best shops, knows the scene....but above all is an understanding, charismatic, patient stylist and that is hard to find. I am eternally grateful and am looking forward to working with her for our San Juan Fashion Week. She is the person in charge of visually empowering my verb.
