Patricia and the team she brought did an amazing job with myself, bridesmaids, and family. I'll start off by saying that my bridesmaids were very hesitant about getting their make up done, but I re-assured them that Patricia was the best and they saw for themselves on my wedding day! Everyone was extremely happy with their hair and make up, including myself! Every time an event goes by I look back at pictures and wonder why I did my make up like that or why did I decide to do my hair like that? Let me tell you, I look back at pictures of my hair and make up on my wedding day and am completely satisfied. Thank you Patricia!

Julie was amazing! she did my hair and makeup for both my bridal portrait sitting and my wedding, as well as a few ladies in my bridal party. I wish I had occasion to have her do my makeup and hair ALL the time because she was fabulous. Professional, on time, friendly, and everyone looked fantastic. 10/10 would absolutely pick her again!

Traci was hired for hair and make-up for a bridal party of 4 plus the bride. The trial run went excellent. She listened to what my sister (bride) wanted and it turned out beautiful. On the day of the wedding she did all four of us. Traci had a "plan of attack" that helped everything go as smoothly as possible. Even with all the interruptions, Traci stayed relaxed and determined. 2 of us girls have long hair and 2 of us have medium long hair. Traci did braids and curls and pinning. If something didn't lay right with our hair, she immediately corrected it without anyone asking her to. She wouldn't settle for less than perfection, but also in a timely manner. The hair and make-up lasted all night. My face normally flushes and turns red especially after a lot of dancing. With the air brush make-up she used it looked the same as when she put it on. My hair was really easy to take out at the end of the night. Traci didn't over use hair pins, but everyone's hair did stay secure. Traci is very friendly and we had a great time. The experience was great. It made such a difference doing it inside a house instead of going to the salon. I highly recommend Teaci for hair and make-up.

Knena did my hair and makeup on my wedding day, and I couldn't be more pleased. Leading up to the day, Knena asked me some key questions to figure out what I wanted and even though I was pretty vague, she made me look beautiful! She created an elegant half up/half down hairstyle with curls and a loose braid, and incorporated a hairpiece that she didn't see until that day. Plus, Knena was willing to come to me so I could hang out with my wedding party all morning - we had a great time with Knena and her assistant/husband for a couple hours, they were fun and friendly. My makeup was natural and beautiful, and the entire look lasted all day and all night (for like 16 hours!), so I highly recommend Knena for any special event.

Lerin did my hair and makeup for my 40th birthday party! It was perfect. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup so I wanted something more natural but a little bit of glam and she did just that!

Sandy was awesome and very professional. She came to our hotel for my wedding. All of my bridesmaids looked beautiful with gorgeous updues. She also did my mom and the grooms mothers hair along with my new sister in laws. A lot to get done for a 3:00 wedding and she did a great job. I would highly recommend Sandy!!!

Working with Patricia was great! Before we met she was very responsive and answered all my questions. She was very sensitive to my needs and asked me detailed questions to make sure she was giving me the look I wanted. She made me feel at ease with the whole process. Not only can she do makeup, she is a wiz with hair! She did my hair and makeup for my bridal shower and I got tons of compliments. Hiring her again for my wedding day! Highly recommend.

I loved Monica she arrived promptly at the hotel the morning of my wedding with extra help to make sure all my girls were ready on time . Everyone looked beautiful , my makeup was amazing I have never looked and felt so beautiful ever in my life . I showed her a picture on pintrest of a hair style I liked and she totally nailed it and my hair held the full 15 hour day it held through a outdoor photoshoot in 89 degree weather tons of humidity and lots of pulling and moving around from the veil . I have very thick hair and it never holds a curl for very long not only did it hold perfectly she was able to make it stay without having to cake me down with heavy hairspray it was soft and bouncy . My pictures turned out amazing my husband kept telling me how amazing I looked all night . The part I loved the most is she let me have the lipstick she used on me so I could re apply after all the kissing and drinking through the night . I had a idea in my head of how I thought I would look on my wedding day and she far exceed my expectations I felt Like a movie star . I will be hiring her again for my sisters wedding she is such a wonderful person and did such a wonderful job .
