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!!
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!
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.
Hands down the best work ever done! Hired her to do my makeup for my wedding and she did the most amazing work! With all the crying none of the makeup wore off, which is a big thing when it comes go weddings let alone any other big events. Second when it came to photos the makeup was flawless(no washed out white skin with flash). She listened on what I wanted done and did it even better. For the price will worth it.
Liv did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. I've already told a couple of my customers about her.
Vinnia did my wedding hair and makeup, along with my mother-in-law and mother's makeup. She did an absolutely INCREDIBLE job! The makeup and hair lasted all the way from finishing the application at 1:30pm to the time I took my shower at 12am after a long day outdoor with the ceremony, reception, dancing, and lots of sweating. It is extremely high quality, comfortable, and long-lasting. She attentively listened to what I wanted, I showed her a couple of photos that I thought were similar, and she went above and beyond. I loved my look - also she gave many suggestions that I didn't even think of that I am so thankful for because they made the look so much better!! Vinnia was very professional and responsive during the time leading up to the wedding, and she arrived exactly when she said she would on the wedding day. It was truly so much fun, and I am so thankful that I chose her! Hands down recommend Vinnia! Thank you for making my day so special (and making me beautiful haha).
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
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!
Farrah and her assistant Manaz were great! Super fun and did an outstanding job on mine and my girls hair and makeup for my wedding!
Jennifer was AMAZING! Communication was wonderful, she was easy to talk to and share ideas with. She was on time and brought so many goodies! She really personalized my experience too based on my skin type and the look I was going for. Her pricing included eyelashes. She really went above & beyond but I don't want to list it all out because you'll want to be surprised. I got so many compliments on her work. Loved my hair and makeup for my wedding - thank you Jenn!
Jasmene did my makeup for my wedding as well as my wedding parties. She also did my makeup for my maternity photos and made me feel my best when I wasn’t exactly feeling my best. 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!
Hazel is a professional makeup artist and superb hair stylist. Listens very well to what you want to achieve and talks you through each step she performs on you. I was very satisfied with my results and received many compliments. I definitely will use Hazel again.
I did about 8 makeup trials for my wedding and mostly all of them did an okay job but I wasn't getting exactly what I was envisioning. Olivia was the last trial and I told her what I wanted and showed her my Pinterest board pics for makeup ideas. She looked at what I wanted and literally did exactly that. I was so excited and so lucky to have found her. She is worth every penny and more. I had so many compliments about my makeup - even from guys at my wedding. I felt amazing. About a year after the wedding, I asked her if she would give me makeup lessons and so we met up for that too. Since then my skills have improved dramatically. I'm still not as good as her and probably never will be but I definitely feel confident about my makeup now. I highly recommend her. Gina Garcia
Working with Stephanie was truly amazing. She was super friendly, accommodating, and really skilled in her art. She did my wedding make up for my myself, my maid of honor, my mom, and my sister, able to capture exactly what we wanted - glam and boho all at the same time. She also did really well with my mom's more natural makeup and my sisters more "junior bridesmaid" version. She also did our make up trial at our home, and made the entire experience dare I say fun and relaxing! I cannot recommend her enough! I all be for sure referring her to all my friends getting married or having special occasions. She also went above and beyond, staying for my ceremony so we can all have touch ups before the reception. Full service with a smile, lots of laughs, amazing work, and making everyone feel like their best selves - all for a great value! Everyone without a doubt loved their hair and makeup! Once I get back from my honeymoon, I will definitely have a make up lesson or two. I wasn't able to get great photos but she has some of our event on her instagram. You will not regret working with Stephanie!
I booked Alexa for hair and makeup for me and 2 other girls for my anniversary party. I had a trial, which I recommend doing if you're particular about the way you'd like to look. She did a good job applying make up and doing my hair. It was more glamorous than the natural look I was going for. On the day of my party, I asked her to tweak a couple things based on the trial, and she listened well and delivered the perfect hair and make up look! The 2 other girls liked their looks as well. I would book Alexa again in the future, and I recommend her as she's good at what she does, and she listens to what you want.
Jelise is awesome! She was patient and took her time doing my makeup and hair. Everyone at the wedding complimented my hair and makeup. I will for sure hire Jelise for my next event. Thanks Jelise!!!
She was fantastic - did amazing work with my hair and makeup and with my family members hair for my wedding! I would recommend her to anyone!!!!
Nina did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup for my wedding day! She was very professional and punctual. I chose Nina for her prices, but the hair and makeup was probably just as good if not better than any other hair and makeup artist. Working with Nina felt like hanging out with a long-time friend. The only downside was the estimate on how long it would take for the hair and makeup. Nina estimated 1.5 hours, but it actually took closer to 3 hours, which set my schedule back a bit. I will just remember to keep that in mind the next time I book Nina for any future events and I will definitely be seeking Nina out the next time I need hair and makeup done! I will be recommending Nina to all my friends and relatives. Thank you, Nina, for making me beautiful on my special day!
Monica did an amazing job on my daughters makeup for homecoming. We will definitely use her again.
I love Elexis! She is amazing at hair and makeup! She is also such a SWEETHEART and very professional. She has been doing my makeup and hair since 2007 and I have never been disappointed! She has always been so helpful as well on choosing the right makeup and skin products! Definitely go to Elexis for hair and makeup!!
Jaiya did both my hair and make-up for my wedding in November 2014 and she was AMAZING. We already had booked her for make-up for me and my bridesmaids, but she also stepped in at the last minute to do my hair when an issue came up with my original appointment. It was perfect. Beyond the gorgeous hair and make-up, she was a soothing, magical presence in an otherwise crazy, stressful room of pre-wedding women. I can't recommend her highly enough.
