Vesta did my hair and makeup for my wedding, and also for my maid of honor. I could not have been happier with Vesta's services and would recommend her to anyone! I'll detail a few of the most outstanding aspects of working with Vesta, although I can't possibly list them all: - Although she is a makeup artist by trade, she did a wonderful job with my hair (a french twist with fresh flowers and volume at the top) and charged MUCH less for it than I would have paid at a salon - She offered her home to me, my wedding party, and my photographer for getting ready since the wedding was located a few short blocks away--so generous and made me feel so relaxed (not to mention that her apartment is beautiful and my photos will be great) - After the trial, on the Big Day, she was very careful to check with me as she did my makeup to see whether or not I was happy with the few things I had asked her to change. - She also gave me great advice after the trial, like suggesting I take omega-3 to moisturize my skin from the inside leading up to the wedding. It was really personal service, and she really tried to make sure that I looked my best. - Although Vesta's tendency is to go a little heavier on the makeup than I would normally, she was careful to check with me at every step, showing me how the look was shaping up and asking if I wanted more blush, more eye liner, etc. I was comfortable speaking up since she asked, and in the end I got a look that I was extremely happy with. I could go on, but in summary I'll just say that Vesta is a wonderful person with a great talent for makeup and a warm heart, and she truly cares about her clients. Highly recommended. Thank you, Vesta!
I hired Mary (and her awesome hairdresser friend Renee) to do my wedding makeup and hair along with the makeup of my maid of honor and the hair of all 5 of my bridesmaids. We had a fun hair and makeup trial a few months ago, where I had very minor changes to make the style more "me" for the wedding. On the day-of, the makeup was perfect-- Mary did not miss a single detail and the makeup stayed put throughout ceremony-crying, reception-sweating, and a messy cake-cutting. ;) My hair came out amazingly as well, I bought some hair extensions and hoped they would work, since they were a slightly different shade of red. Renee layered them into my real hair and it looked completely natural. Everyone looked like models after having their hair done and it stayed like that the entire time. Heck, my hair stayed perfect until I showered the next day! Seriously, these two are magical. The best part was that they were not stressed despite the time crunch, did everything completely professionally, and were also just the sweetest people to have doing your hair and makeup the morning of your wedding. I had SO many compliments all night. Thank you so much, ladies. I love you!
I was nervous to work with a stylist that I have never met but Ochanya easily put my nerves to ease. Before our session she sent a detail questionnaire to help her bring the correct supplies to our session. What a great experience!! Ochanya was friendly, professional and easy to work with. I am very green in the realm of makeup and hair and Ochanya took the time to evaluate my needs and ensure that the desired look was achievable. We had a lovely conversation during her service that I didn’t even notice the time flying by. She made sure I was ready for my event. She suggested hair and make up styles that would pair well with my dress. Thank you Ochanya! Hope we meet again!!
Tatiana did my hair and make up in preparation for a shoot at my job for the company website.
I had a wonderful experience with Antonina! She did hair and makeup on my wedding day for both me and my mom. She did an absolutely fantastic job. We could not have been happier!
I've asked Remi to do my hair and make up really last minute for my wedding in NYC. She showed up on time and was really professional! This is not the first time I got a make up artist BUT first time I've experienced my make up to stay this flawless for more than 10 hours straight, under 86°F!!! Thanks Remi, you the best!
Aleetha and Christine were wonderful to work with. They drove over 2.5 hours to my house in central PA to do my hair and makeup trial. They were punctual and professional in every way. Aleetha answered all of my questions and emails immediately (usually very late at night). We had a mixed Hindu-Jewish wedding and both families and our friends were extremely happy with their hair and makeup. The day of the actual wedding they were punctual and well worth the money! Not only did everyone at the wedding look amazing (my mom said she felt 20 years younger), but all my friends/family commented on how much fun they had getting hair/makeup done. Aleetha and Christine were my favorite vendor to work with and I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
Alyssa did hair and makeup for my sister and I for a wedding. She came on time and finished quickly, yet it looked like she spent hours on it. She has a great personality and makes you feel very comfortable. I am definitely going to hire her the next time I need hair and makeup done. I highly recommend her for any special events!
Marija did my hair and makeup when I was in New York for an event. She and her sister were amazing to work with! Not only did Marija ask for pictures, but she listened to what look I wanted and created a look that was perfect! The quality of work was very high; my hair and makeup looked absolutely stunning and both lasted throughout a long evening! Both ladies have awesome personalities and I had a blast sitting in the chair and talking with them. I hope to be back in NY for another formal event, as I would love to work with them again!
Angela was amazing! Her make up skills are AMAZING. She also did my hair...which is always a task...and it came out beautifully! Thanks so much Angela!!!!
Faith Glam House Came out to My House for my Prom Day, she did my Hair & Makeup and Wow I’m still Happy my makeup lasted over 12 hours ! I highly recommend her services!
Danielle is extremely knowledgeable and affordable. Unlike most hair stylists, she suggests only what she thinks is best for the client's hair health, not what will make her the most money. I felt at home while she was doing my hair. The way she washes hair is so relaxing. She constantly asks if what she is doing is comfortable, or if the braiding is too tight (which it rarely was). She listened to what I wanted and actually did it. I would 200% recommend her, especially to women who care about the health of their hair. Even more importantly, her and her family care about my safety. After she finished with my hair, her fiance gave me a ride to the train station, even waiting with me until we realized I had missed the train, and then took me to another train station. I can't express how happy I am with what they have done for my confidence! And they fed me, so you can't beat that!
Lugo Hair and Makeup was perfect. I was very happy with my look and it lasted all day. I got so many compliments. Can't wait to book her again.
Shirley did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. She was on time and brought all of the tools she would need to transform me into a beauty. I had sent her pictures of hair and makeup and she did exactly what I wanted. I looked beautiful for my wedding reception and I received a lot of compliments. She took her time and I felt like I was in heaven being so pampered! I highly recommend Shirly and will use her again. I shopped around and her price was very reasonable.
I have wavy and frizzy hair. I was recommended to get the hair straightening process done. I have tried many other products and this one has worked the best for my type of hair. I was extremely satisfied with the results. My hair is smooth and it takes less time for me to straighten my hair. Olga is very reliable and very professional. She explains exactly what product she is using and the products that should be used to help keep the straightening product in the hair for longer results. If you are looking to get your hair straightened, I would definitely recommend using Olga!
Plush makeup artistry & Hair design did an amazing job on mine and my bridal party's hair and makeup. 5 stars. They were fun and very talented. I loved the hair and makeup! They did exactly what each of the girls wanted and made them look stunning for the photos! I felt like I was among friends we laughed and had a great time while they did us up. If you want magazine worthy makeup and hair and an enjoyable time these are the ladies to choose! Thanks again!!
I love my hair! I’ve tried so many salons and stylists in the past and none of them worked! I was getting so frustrated until I meat Gabrielle who corrected the work that was done prior and gave me exactly what I wanted!!! Also check out her Instagram where she posted everything that’s where I found my hair :) @gab_loveshair
Pent was so easy to communicate with and was patient with perfecting hair and makeup for my wedding! She is so sweet and friendly. I loved that she took the time to have the makeup done naturally. Thank you so much, Pent!
Adrianna has been doing my hair for over a year and she is FABULOUS! I get the cut I ask for every time, and I have challenging, short, curly hair. She is also one of the kindest people I know. No one else can touch my hair.
Laura did my hair for my wedding as well as my mother’s makeup and hair. She is the best! So sweet and does an amazing job. I am so thankful for her! She listens to what you want and works hard to make it happen. She’s the best! Hire her!
Rasheda was a pleasure to work with! She did my wedding hair, and the hair of a few of my bridesmaids. She’s very sweet and attentive and will totally put you at ease, which is especially great if you are a sleep deprived maniac on the morning of your wedding (as I was). Most importantly, my hair looked awesome and stayed in place all night, despite the humidity, which is more than I could’ve asked for. We did a trial before the wedding, which I definitely recommend doing, because I had some changes that Rasheda was able to work into the final style.
