I hired Vesta to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. I'm very pleased with the experience and would definitely recommend her. She listened to what I wanted and gave me lovely hair/makeup. But more than that she was just a lovely person to work with. She was easy to talk to and put me at ease.
Communications were great; I sent her photos of hair/makeup I liked and we talked over that. A few weeks before the wedding we did a trial run at her gorgeous apartment. The trial run lasted a good four hours - Vesta didn't rush it at any point, even trying out two different "up-do" hairstyles on me until we were happy. She listened to what I wanted and responded.
On the wedding day itself I was running a little late and was stressed out but Vesta's calming personality helped ease me a little. She again did great hair and makeup (I still had all my eye makeup on largely intact the next morning - I know it's bad that I didn't take it off, but it shows it was long lasting!). She also helped secure my headpiece. Both on the day and at the trial she also took nice photos that she shared with me.
She's 100% competent as a hair/makeup artist but she also adds that little extra in that she's calming, makes you feel relaxed, and says very sweet things. Recommended.
