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!!
Yesterday you did an amazing job on all the brides maids. Thank you very much for your amazing work and congratulations on your new addition to your family 🤗
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.
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!
Andrea is absolutely amazing! Her work leaves me looking flawless every time! I've booked her for my wedding, all my special events and nights out with my husband. Her brushes are always smooth on my skin and extremely clean. She also uses premium products that don't cause me to break out or clog up my pores. I've referred her to all my friends and family and would HIGHLY recommend Andrea for any makeup or hair needs
I highly recommend Tonia. She did my makeup and hair as well as my two young daughters' hair for family photos. We were all very happy with the results! She is very friendly, patient and professional. Even before we met in person, she was very responsive over email in responding to my questions. The day of Tonia listened to what I wanted and made sure she gave my girls and me the hair styles and make-up style (for me) that we wanted, even if it meant taking more time to do so. I also was impressed that she has experience with young women and "older" women like myself who are moms and no longer in their 20's! And she was great with my two young girls ages 5 &7. Her rates are very reasonable compared to other artists' rates that I researched and she arrived on time and finished on time too. We would definitely book with her again and I would gladly refer her to my friends! Thank you so much Tonia!!! :) :)
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!
Nora did my hair and makeup for my wedding in Big Sur. She trudged out to the middle of no where and came with us to touch up my hair and makeup during our photos. She went above and beyond expectations and I am SO happy I chose her for my day!
Jaime did my makeup for prom and I could not have asked for a better makeup artist. She made me feel so comfortable and did a great job. I was so happy with the look that she gave me!
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!
Corina is absolutely fantastic. She is extremely professional and talented. We hired her to do hair and makeup for my daughter's Quinceanera. Her sweet and guinince charisma helped ease my daughter's nerved. My daughter dislikes makeup and after our initial trial, she was taken aback by her great work. She also did makeup for both myself and my mother and we are both extremely pleased with her work. We definitely recommend Corina!
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!
An Amazing Makeup artist. I would definitely recommend her for important events. Loved her
Did trial yesterday...and was happy with results for hair and makeup. I'm excited to have her do my hair and makeup for my wedding next week!...
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!
Juls, Tess, Leticia, and Ninah exceeded all my expectations. They did makeup and hair on 6 bridesmaids, bride, bride's mom aunt and grandmother for my wedding. Everyone looked phenomenal and felt great. Couldn't have asked for a better time, 1000x recommend.
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.
Kayla did my hair and makeup for my wedding AS WELL as my daughters hair and makeup for prom. She was everything we wanted and more; punctual, professional, down to earth, and talented. She was such a joy to be around but also provided excellent services to both is us. I couldnt Have been happier with the looks she did in my wedding photos. Thank you again kayla! I recommend To anyone!
She was right on with what I was looking for. I went to Marlise for Full Glam Makeup. I don't usually wear much makeup & was very pleased with her color choices. She totally got me. I loved her contouring. I will be seeing her soon for my hair!
Rogenda is very beautiful inside and out. I’m very picky on who I let in my face and in my space and she’s one of the few that I’m comfortable with. She has done some of my favorite makeup looks ever and she’s always been a pleasure to work and create with! I highly recommend her services!
