Fernanda was absolutely incredible. I have extremely fine, thin, textureless hair and am really never happy with it, especially when getting it styled for a formal event. I found Fernanda on Thumbtack and hired her for my wedding because she showed real interest, curiosity, flexibility, and realism when we talked over the app. She did not over-promise about what she could do with my hair, and asked lots of questions. It was clear she cared about getting it right and managing my expectations. During our appointment, she responded to my feedback throughout and remained thoughtful, warm, and professional. The result could not have been better. For once, I really, really loved my hair. I couldn't believe what she accomplished (without extensions or clip ins!!!), and it stayed gorgeous all night. I really can't recommend her enough and the difference between my experience with Fernanda compared to others who have styled my hair for events in the past cannot be exaggerated. My mother-in-law literally cannot stop talking about how great my hair looked on the day of the wedding; she is really not a fan of my usual hair (lol!) so I think she was in shock that my hair could look so great.

My husband surprised me with saying his Ball was a day earlier than I had planned. My original person doing my makeup was out of town and I had to find someone fast. Fernanda responded quickly and fortunately had availability to do my makeup! She was professional and super sweet. She came to my house making everything so much easier for me. I don’t usually wear makeup so she kept the look more natural and gave my eyes pop, exceeding my expectations! Thank you Fernanda for coming through and helping me look beautiful for this event. I look forward to your help on any other big events in the future!

Fernanda is simply AMAZING! She did hair and makeup for three of us for holiday photos. She was so sweet with our 7 and 10 year old girls. We all looked glamorous but natural. I wish I could have her do my makeup and hair every day. 😁 I have my makeup and hair done often for the line of work I’m in, and she is the absolute best! I will definitely be hiring her and promoting her services to everyone I know. You will feel absolutely gorgeous if you hire Fernanda.

WOW WOW WOW! Fernanda gave me the most amazing makeup experience I have ever had, from start to finish! This was for a bodybuilding show and also out of state for me, but Fernanda made me feel so relaxed and calm, was very efficient and personable, and a true makeup wizard! Super easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable and confident. When she showed me the final look, I almost cried. Everyone was complimenting me all day and j truly felt like a queen. And to top it off, i won my Pro Card at my show! I will definitely be hiring again in the future. Can’t stop obsessing how beautiful she made my friend and I feel on our big day! Thank you so much for everything!

We were visiting town and hired her for our hair and makeup. Very happy with our hair and makeup and it stayed all night through lots of sweating and dancing.

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I usually take my time to get to know my clients before the appointment, and it is really important to listen to their concerns and their needs, so they are happy with their final look.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Makeup has always been a passion for me, but never in a million years I thought I was going to be doing this professionally one day. I have always been the “go to” person for all my friends whenever they wanted to get their makeup done, but I was always so busy and stressed with my job, that I could barely see how much joy that passion was bringing to my life ( whenever I had time to do it) .So one day, a friend of mine asked me “why don’t you start your own makeup business since you love it so much and you’re pretty good at it?” I was going crazy at work and so stressed out that I decided to quit my job setup my little studio, and started taking makeup clients. It was the best decision I’ve made and I couldn’t feel more proud of it.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Do your research, chat with different artists and go with the one you feel mostly comfortable with! At the end of the day, the client wants to have a great experience from start to finish, so make sure you communicate your expectations to the service provider, and go with the one who listens to your needs and your concerns! :)
