I have never seen anyone more knowledgeable about beauty than Tai. Not only were her prices extremely low for her skill, but her shining personality and down to earth approach make her one of a kind! My bridesmaids and I looked absolutely stunning, and after our hair and makeup sessions, we were all glowing on the inside too. A hair and makeup artist who can instill confidence on a wedding day when nerves are high is a very rare person to come by. Our hair and makeup stayed gorgeous throughout the night even through hours and hours of dancing. Did I mention that she did hair and makeup by herself for nine people without stopping? She is an angel. Make sure you book her quickly before she recognizes that her work is worth way more than what she's asking for!

I worked with Monique as my makeup stylist for a wedding I was attending (as a guest). I was blown away by how amazing she made me look and feel. She took my ideas on what I wanted and took them to the next level. I was so happy with the end result, and my husband and friends didn't stop complimenting me all night. Thank you Monique!

Lerin did a great job doing my makeup on my wedding day (12-12-15)! She and an assistant did makeup for 11 girls (including myself, 3 moms, my aunt, my step sister, & my 5 bridesmaids). Everyone looked wonderful & makeup was tailored to each person's personal taste. Would recommend 100% to anyone who wants to get makeup professionally done. Lerin is also very personable & responsive. So happy that I found her as I had researched many other makeup artists but their makeup abilities, in my opinion, were not up to par with Lerin's. I plan on using Lerin for any future special occasions or photoshoots.

Michelle at Hairs2theBride did my hair and makeup as well as my bridesmaids hair and makeup and my mothers hair. Everything was beyond my expectations! I had a old Hollywood glamour theme and they nailed it!

Traci is absolutely wonderful! I had reached out to her for hair and makeup for my wedding but because of the number of girls I had that needed both, she brought in her friend Kristie who is equally amazing! Traci was super easy to get in touch with and communicate with throughout the whole process. She is worth every penny and is much more reasonable than a lot of quotes I received! After the trial, my hair hadn't turned out exactly how I had hoped because my hair is too thin but Traci gave me some great recommendations for how we could achieve the look I was going for! Just in case I came up with some alternative hairstyles for the big day but they weren't even necessary! Kristie was a rockstar and worked with the hair piece I bought and it worked out perfectly!! On the way to the hotel the morning of my wedding, she was texting me asking if there was anything I needed her to pick up on her way! She is just so thoughtful and sweet! Then when she got there, we got right into hair and makeup but had SO much fun! It was the perfect way to start the day! I'm so grateful for how wonderful both Traci and Kristie were and they were very efficient and accommodating all morning! We were having so much fun, I ended up losing track of time and realized I had to put my dress on and get over to the church! I truly can't speak highly enough of Traci and Kristie and my hair and makeup looked AMAZING!! Everything turned out even better than I could have hoped for! I received so many compliments! And my makeup lasted all day and my hair never budged, even with the wind and all the dancing we did! I HIGHLY recommend Traci and will keep her in mind for any events I may have in the future!

Patricia was absolutely wonderful transforming my bridal look to match the awesome day. She's really cool, hear your thoughts and work with you in what you want for your special day. You can tell she has a great range of experience when she was extremely comfortable doing my hair and makeup as well as my mom and mother in law's, all within time on time. I'm really glad she was in the Chicago area and I didn't have to travel to the burbs for the trial. Thanks again!

Lisa did my makeup as a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding. I felt like she really understood what I wanted and was able to give recommendations. Some makeup artists say "pick you own color" and she was able to say what blush/lipstick/etc. she thought would look best with the eye look. She also did great brows!

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!

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.

Sandy was great! She did the hair and makeup for my wedding and bridal party. The makeup was perfection. My new husband loved the natural look done just right to complement my features. Everyone looked beautiful. I showed Sandy a picture of the long hair up-do I preferred and again it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her. I will definitely call her for any special event.

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.

Branden did my makeup for my wedding and it was perfection. He also did 6 of my bridesmaids and they were all raving about him/extremely pleased. He has done my makeup for other events and is always on time, fun to chat with and most of all does an amazing job. I️ would highly remorecommend Branden to do your makeup for any occasion!

Her quality of work is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. She can transform your face to look like a superstar walking on the red carpet. She uses great products (nothing cheap) and the makeup last all day. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for an excellent makeup artist. She definitely fits the criteria!

I would recommend Anjali to anyone! She did my makeup for a wedding last weekend, and it was such a great experience. She was on time, professional but super friendly, and she really listened to what I wanted. My makeup came out EXACTLY how I imagined it, and I am very picky. Can’t say enough good things about her!
