Krista was amazing. She made me look the most beautiful I ever looked in my life. She also made my girls look so beautiful. My mom said she worked miracles with her hair and makeup. My mom wishes she could have Krista around everyday. Brides, Krista will make your day the most special. She is the sweetest and most talented. I will use her for any event that I need to look my best for that is her talent, to make people look and feel their best.

First and foremost, this is my honest review of Pilin based on services received and overall experience. Pi far exceeded my expectations for a make-up artist. She was professional and responsive for every single time that we communicated. She is a very talented and thoughtful person. I received several responses by other MUAs but Pi made me feel the most comfortable. On my wedding day, she even called me to see if I wanted her to bring breakfast for me. She was the least expensive nor the most. She was very polite in person and I felt very comfortable with her in my home. During my pre-run, she explained everything as she applied. She told me what she was applying and allowed me to provide input. On my wedding day, she was very flexible and really made my day a relaxing one. She is VERY timely and conscious of time constraints and schedules. During the pre-run, she annotated every piece of make-up that I approved and used a face card that specified precisely where to apply the make-up, which was I allowed to keep as a "souvenir". I looked absolutely beautiful and not overdone on my wedding day. I couldn't have been more happier with my decision to hire Pi. You won't be disappointed!

Valerie Barr of Diva5000 was one of the most competent and accomplished MUA's that I have had the privilege of working with. Her professionalism is beyond compare and I am excited each time I am on a project with her. She always makes my make up flawless. Book her today, you will not regret it!

I’ve had my makeup done by Theresa and I took makeup lessons before with her. The work she does is true art. Theresa is an amazing teacher as well. I am a busy mom and wanted to get some good tips that would make me pretty in little time spent. She gave me such helpful insight. Now I feel confident and beautiful when I’m applying makeup and I will always go to her for any event makeup.

I appreciate Brittany for doing a terrific job on my make-up! I normally don't let anyone do my make-up besides myself but I love her work! The way she "beats" your face is like a facial and make-up session in one! Not to much but not to little!

Alison's eye for creativity & hand for precision is one you do not come across often in this business. From the beginning of the service, her consultation is very personable and makes you feel like she's geniune listening. Throughout the entire makeup application she remained engaged and made sure I was doing okay, and for me not only did it make me feel like she cares but it also made the experience go by faster. Her smokey-eye look she gave me was one that I definitely will be coming back to her to get on my next night out on the town!

Amity was fantastic!! She is very sweet and does extremely awesome work with makeup. She was able to do my makeup on a Sunday morning for the wedding which no one does. She even offers makeup classes which i can't wait to take. I highly recommend Haven & Beyond Professional Makeup Studio. The studio was absolutely beautiful and she had uplifting great music playing in the background and i felt like a movie star when she was doing my makeup. She is a down to earth person that can conn

I appreciate that Stephanie first asked how I would like to look before applying make-up. She took my vision and nailed it with her creativity, skills, professionalism and fun! I will certainly book her for future events.

My experience at Canvas The Make-up Studio was second to none! My cosmetic questions and needs were met during my appointment. I was not only transformed during my session, but educated as well on the do's and don'ts about make-up and taking care of my skin. I would recommend this business to colleagues and close family members. Schedule a consultation today, you won't be disappointed and even if you may not need make-up advice, you may learn something about your skin and get a facial, while you're there :)

I received a natural make up application. The first lipstick was not for me but the last one she applied was perfect. I have oily skin but she place a product in my face that controlled the oil. I'm unable to recall the name. She also explained what she was doing while applying the make up which was great because I wanted to learn.

Anne is an extremely gifted makeup artist and a true professional- I am so glad I hired her! Anne did my makeup for my wedding as well as my mother and bridesmaids and we were all so thrilled with her work. I felt so beautiful and radiant - most amazing of all, the makeup stayed put the whole wedding night. My photos turned out great! I usually have oily skin and can get quite a shine and in the heat and humidity we experienced that summer night, it was thanks to Anne and her amazing products that my makeup stayed in place and looked fantastic the whole night! She also did four of my bridesmaid's makeup (all different nationalities) and my mother who usually does not wear any make up at all. She was so quick and professional. All of them asked me for her number after so she could help them with their makeup at home afterwards. Anne also had a very calm demeanor which helped me feel calm and collected. I highly, highly recommend Anne - you will be thrilled!!

Ashley did a fabulous job with my make-up for a professional picture session. She was easy-going yet very much in command of the process. I had a very tight time frame and she worked effortlessly to make it happen. And asked and wanted feedback. Would definitely use her and she is also fun.

Beauty with Just Deja

I’ve been going to Deja for my hair needs for about 7 years now. She is by far one of the best stylists that I have ever seen. My hair texture isn’t the easiest to work with (long and very thick), and Deja makes it look beautiful every single time. She is thorough, but also efficient, and doesn't keep me in the salon for more than an hour and a half. Even during my difficult transition from relaxed to natural, I always left with soft and manageable hair. I have seen Deja for many different services, including cut, color, style, sew-in, and various others. No matter what the "do", I always receive tons of compliments when I leave her salon. One of my favorite things about Deja is that she constantly creates hairstyles that are in alignment with my vision. I have gone to other stylists who imposed their ideas on me or simply failed to achieve the look that I was hoping for. I have never had this problem with Deja. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, capable, and knowledgeable stylist. You will not be disappointed.

Wow! Meme made me feel like a celebrity! She performed both Hair and Makeup for my professional photoshoot. I expressed to her that I wanted a natural look for both hair and makeup, she executed flawlessly. Before the shoot she came to my home prepared and ready to work. We traveled to the location and she made sure not ONE hair was out of place or lipstick out of line. She knew the look I was going for and gave feedback. She worked with the photographer seamlessly and professionally, which resulted in an All-Star cast. I truly felt famous and cared for. She is a joy to be around.

Sammy did my make up for my engagement pictures. I had never worked with her previously and didn't know what to expect at all. I was speechless when I saw how well my makeup looked. Needless to say she did an amazing job and will be doing my make up for my wedding as well (or any other important event in the future!)!
