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 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

Yvonne is an amazingly talented hair stylist & make up artist! She's also very nice and patient :). I booked Yvonne for wedding hair and makeup. She is super responsive over chat - she answered all my questions very quickly. I had my trial run yesterday and it went way better than I'd dreamed of. I don't usually put on makeup, but Yvonne was patient with me while I described what I wanted. I showed her some pinterest pictures, and she created a hairstyle I loved immediately. She also fixed my eyebrows and covered up my skin problems flawlessly with her makeup! She was also very patient with me when I told her my makeup preferences. Thank you Yvonne! I'm very excited to work with you again on my wedding day! :)

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!

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!

Lilian was incredible to work with. My wife and I look very different with very different hair and we both got our hair and makeup done for our wedding this September - we were so happy with how we looked and we felt relaxed on our big day knowing we were in capable hands. Lilian had us over at her nice in-home studio the week of the wedding to do a trial run. She did a great job at our trial run but she did an even better job of listening to our feedback and perfecting her approach for our actual wedding day- were she came to our hotel with all her gear and an assistant and did hair and makeup for us as well as 6 other family members! We cannot stress enough how important it Ian to do a trial run. It just took out all the anxiety and guesswork on the day of - we knew we were going to look great. So, yes, hire Lilian right away! Her quality of work is wonderful, her pricing is very affordable (considering her quality of work) and she has a warm enjoyable personality. You will feel great working with her!

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!

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 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.

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!

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.

Janessa was so wonderful! She did my hair and makeup for my baby shower. She was very competitively priced while maintaining a high quality job, was very flexible, always responded quickly, answered my many questions, was very friendly and ready for me even when I showed up a little early! I would highly recommend her and I will go to her again in the future! She even did my hair when I initially just wanted makeup done. I got to many compliments through out the day! My hair and makeup was still looking great by the end of the night, I didn't want to wash it off!

I honestly can't say enough about Sunny. I hired Sunny to do my bridal makeup, along with the makeup for all of my bridesmaids, my mom, and my two mother-in-laws. From the moment I met her for my makeup consultation, I knew she was going to be an absolutely perfect addition to my wedding day. My makeup consultation was very helpful and fun, and Sunny even showed me a few fun makeup tips for my bachelorette party :) I also had Sunny put long-lasting false eyelashes on me about a week before my wedding. It was a long process, but Sunny was so patient and made sure that everything was absolutely perfect. It was SO worth it - the eyelashes stayed on for weeks and looked amazing! On the day of my wedding, Sunny brought a wonderful sense of calm and joy to the bridal suite. Sunny was very open-minded and patient with everyone in the party and made everyone look fabulous, and I could not have been happier with my makeup. It lasted all day and held up to heat, sweat, and (lots of) tears! After my wedding, I started going to Sunny to get my hair done, which is another one of her amazing talents. Overall, Sunny is amazing and I recommend her to anyone I know who is getting married / just needs an amazing makeup or hair stylist!

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!
