This was the first time me and my mom had our makeup done professionally and it was amazing. With all the craziness going on in the background, Shirley was able to do an amazing job for me and my mom, everyone complimented our makeup, my mom also got her hair done. Even though it was our first time and we had no idea what we wanted Shirley was able to give a look that was perfect for the occasion. Thank you so much again!!

Details: Wedding • 2 people • My home, venue, etc.

Hair style was not exactly what I asked for nor was the makeup. Had to redo my hair myself to get more or less what i wanted.

Hi Raquel, it was great meeting you and your family! I’m saddened you weren’t satisfied with the hairstyle or makeup. I wish you had let me know once I was done. Additionally I did try to have you ready for your wedding by the time you told me (2pm). Unfortunately, I had to rush a bit due to the 2 additional services that were unexpectedly added once I arrived (2 blowout services).

Amazing! The first time I ever had my makeup done by a professional. I was so scared because I thought I was going to look like I had on too much makeup. Shirley listened to what I desired and gave her expert advice on what we were going to do to achieve a particular look. Everyone loved my makeup, and friends and family wanted their makeup done by Shirley- although they already have a makeup artist. I went back to her a second time and we did a completely different look that was beautiful, as well. I will continue to use her services on a routine basis for gorgeous photos. Also, Shirley is nice and her place is very clean.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My prices reflect not only my experience thus far and the quality of the products that I have thoughtfully selected for my professional kits (makeup kit, hair kit, and lighting equipment), but all the investments I’ve made in bettering myself through costly continued education. There is a travel fee as well. If I’m traveling to you, that’s a luxury service you’re looking to book. I take into account the distance, the tolls, and the time it’ll take to and from your location. All my prices quoted are STARTING prices so please DO NOT ask for a discount on the starting price. There are separate fees for a variety of different situations which are detailed in my Policy & Terms. I do give a discount to clients for a future service when they refer me and that service is completed. *** NOTE – Consultations of your desired makeup look is a complimentary service. However, a pre-event trial of your desired makeup look is $150 and hairstyling trials are $100 and up.

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

    I ask a few questions: Name Date of event What services and for how many people. The zip code of the location. Send me photos of your hair, desired hairstyle, desired makeup, dress, and headpiece. Once these questions have been answered I look to book. Only after receiving their retainer do I proceed to get into details. Only then do I follow up with a more thorough consultation via phone call. I proceed to make a contract and forward my policy and terms for the bride to review. (Not necessary for non bridal clients) I make sure the bride is comfortable with the agreed looks. We confirm times and small details for the big day. I like to stay in touch to make sure things are running smoothly. A trial is strongly recommended! A week or two prior to the event, I’ll let the bride know a set of instructions I have for her and bridal party for the special day. Lastly, I’ll confirm two days prior to the event and ask for the remaining balance to be paid off. I show up and get the job done!

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

    Beauty School 2007 Numerous Online classes Certification class with Glam Lab 2014 Assisting NYC top name Salons such as Mark Garrison, Eva Scrivo, Paul Labrecque, Sally Hershberger. Private haircutting classes with Laara Raynier IBS workshops Makeup Masterclass with Mario Dedivanovic Makeup Masterclass with Alessandro Alcantara and Danessa Myricks Bridal hair class with celebrity hairstylist Senada Ceka. I personally assisted her and still work with her team. Bridal makeup class with Lauren D’amelio.
