Introduction: * Hi dear Client, before telling you more about myself. Please note that the prices are sent out automatically by Thumbtack based on the exact numbers and services you are entering into the questionnaire boxes. Rates for hairstyling and makeup are separate and you only receive a quote for makeup or hair ONLY automatically. Rates vary based on the season and higher inflation rates and Thumbtack marketing fees. However I do my best to work within your budget and offer reasonable rates. The dates are sent out based on the availability in my calendar.* I am also very experienced with South Asian makeup and hair styling but Do Not provide draping services.* With my years of experience on TV sets and working with celebrities,high profile personalities and many brides of all cultural backgrounds , I have gained extensive knowledge with many different complexions, skin types and hair textures. I will make sure you are going to look absolutely fabulous leaving my chair for your wedding, formal / special occasions or photo/video shoot with great sense of satisfaction. I will listen to your needs, give my 100% and offer you high quality service for great prices. For large groups I offer discounted packages and work with skilled professional team members for additional charges which highly recommended. Traveling is free in NYC except Tolls and mileage for long distance drive. Trials are also available for flat rates and I will provide them in my studio or for extra $40 traveling fees + any toll fees to your location . I highly encourage you to ask specific questions if you are interested to learn more about my services. If I don't respond right away I am probably working with a client and will get back as soon as I am finished with my work. Can't wait to hear from you!!

Vesta was absolutely amazing. She did an incredible job on my daughter’s hair AND makeup. She has the ability of getting to know her client and her client’s taste and style building on that which is crucial. She was given pictures for ideas and nailed it. We will be using her again for sure.

Vesta and her assistants Ky and Kayia did an amazing job. We had a tight timeline for an early afternoon wedding and they got everything done in time. Our hair and makeup lasted from 6am until midnight. My family was raving about what a great job she did and how kind Vesta and her assistants were all morning. Vesta puts a lot of care into her work. She even gave me an under eye mask before doing my makeup and a small baggy of makeup to fix mine if needed. I would recommend Vesta for any wedding, she was fantastic.

Vesta was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had done a trial with her for my bachelorette party and she also did my bridal look for me and the makeup for my bridal party. We also had the pleasure of working with Vesta’s assistant Tiffani who created amazing hair styles. I definitely recommend getting an assistant if you have 3 or more people in your bridal party. The makeup and hair was all beautifully done and everyone loved their looks, including myself. I would highly recommend choosing to work with Vesta. You won’t be disappointed.

Details: Wedding • 26 - 44 years old • 45 - 64 years old • Airbrushed makeup (spray tool) • 5 people • My home, venue, etc.

    My rates varies based on -The nature of the job, if is a photo shoot. a wedding, fashion shoot and etc... -How many people are interested in my services, -Location I do offer affordable rates and discount group packages based on the season as well. Deposit and contracts are required for events and a large number of people who are inquiring my service.

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

    The first step is to know what type of makeup or hair style you like to have for your photo shoot or event and have you to provide reference pictures. Also the time that you need to be ready. The more details you provide the better I am able to work with your expectations and make you feel absolutely gorgeous and confident. We can set up a phone consultation or a trial that helps us to speak about any of your concerns, try out styles so make you feel more comfortable on the actual day of your photo shoot or event.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have my degree in fine arts :painting and photography . Since I always loved to work in beauty I got training from Vidal Sassoon head of the beauty department privately . Soon after I became a national then international artist and trainer for major cosmetic brands and I had an opportunity to work and study products, travel and train artists in Salons, Major department stores and Sephora all over the states. After some years of traveling I decided to become a full time freelancer and spend more time with my family. One of my great first freelance jobs was working at the Film Junket with Martin Scorsese. I got certified in Makeup Academy in Airbrush and Hd Makeup for camera and films. Since then I attend workshops to keep up with new trends in beauty also has good knowledge in SFX and character makeup.
