Marisa did my makeup for both my bridal portraits and my wedding day and did an AMAZING job! Marisa is very talented and really listened to what I wanted and what my girls wanted and followed through 100%. Everyone in my bridal party looked so natural and beautiful! Not only is Marisa an amazing makeup artist, she is very professional, and personable! My bridal party and I had a lot of fun with her the day of my wedding. I am so glad I found her for my big day and cannot wait to hire her again! Marisa will not disappoint you!

Nicole is very nice and professional. We wanted Korean style makeup and she actually took time to study the tutorials I sent to her. Of course she did a fantastic job for me and my girls on the wedding day. I definitely recommend her to every lady out there who wants to hire a professional makeup artist for your special day!

Nik did an excellent job. We had a short window of time to work with and she stuck with it. She most certainly asked about my preferences and put me at ease. You never know what you're going to get when using a makeup artist for the first time, but I must say that I was very pleased with Nik and will use her again if I am in the San Antonio area. I constantly received compliments on my appearance all night. I was the talk of night and loved every minute of it. Highly recommended!!

Wow! What life savers lol! Let me tell you guys that without these ladies I would've been so lost. As a new bride to be I was really overwhelmed with the many hair options out there....*sigh* I mean, hair up? down? side? WHAT! I had so many other things to plan that this at the time wasn't even a priority. I found Tres Unique Beauty Lounge a few weeks before my wedding date. I was afraid the the last minute planning on my part would be a problem but ToCarra (owner) was very nice, sweet, and most important understanding. There was no speech about the proximity of my wedding date or the inability to secure a wedding day or time with her. She was very flexible and relieved my stress. I went to the pre-trial to secure a look for hair and makeup. The hair/makeup artist she paired me up with Alex was very nice and man! she can work a contour and eye shadow like no other! lol! I did make some changes in between the pre-trial and wedding , they flexed without a problem. They (Alex and Shelby) arrived at the reception site before I even got there and made the tension of the day , at least for that part, disappear. They used quality makeup and were very supportive. My maid of honor that was worked on by Shelby looked absolutely beautiful! She color matched her perfectly, even after the last minute add on I needed for her. Alex definitely gave me a beautiful face for my wedding day. As my now husband said " Your makeup isn't dull or boring, it definitely has character! You are beautiful" .Compliments from everyone at the wedding and I'm looking forward to looking at my wedding pictures to show off the magic she created. Overall, I recommend these ladies to anyone who needs a makeup/hairstylist for any occasion. They are very professional, flexible, dependable and best of all, a comfort to those of us brides to be who need a lil TLC in the process... Thank you ladies, I am truly grateful.

She is a super fun artist to work with, her artistic talent really is evident when she's applying makeup! I couldn't believe how natural and beautiful my makeup looked when she had finished, the makeup she used was very good for my skin and didn't cause any bad reactions whatsoever. I was extremely impressed with the great service she gave me, it was really needed and wanted!! I strongly recommend!

Codie, was by far the best makeup artist I have ever used! I had a work party to attend and my other makeup artist cancelled on me the day before, luckily I was able to get glammed by my super hero Codie! She honestly saved me from looking a wreck, I was grateful that she could come to me on short notice and then she exceeded my expectations with her makeup skills and personality! I will definitely recommend using her if you need makeup, I will next time for sure!

So, Ivi is my sister and she is so great all around. You must be thinking I am biased, and maybe I am to some degree but seriously, Ivi rocks at she does! She has been styling and coloring my hair for 10+ years and I always trust her to take my vision and make it a reality. She has an artistic eye that is just not present with other stylists I’ve had. Ivi did my hair and makeup for a personal photo shoot in 2011 in which she also photographed me. She is amazing at multi-tasking and took her time to make sure all was perfect for what she wanted to achieve. Of course I asked her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding in 2014 (and wish she could have photographed it as well) and I could not have been happier with the results. Whatever the event, Ivi will always have your back and make sure your expectations are met- whether hairstyling, hair color, makeup, or photographing your special day. She strives to be the best at what she does, and I believe she succeeds. Here are some pictures of her work:

Daniel did my hair and makeup for an event. Not only did I look and feel amazing, I was entertained by his awesome personality. He is so fun! I got so many compliments on how I looked. He pays close attention to detail and doesn't stop until it's perfect and you're happy. I will use him forever if I can!

Melanie was the on location hairstylist I used for my wedding. She did a fabulous job on me and my three bridesmaids. She listened to us, looked at photos and offered suggestions. She is also an exceptional makeup artist. She pays attention to detail, made sure we were all comfortable with our looks and was done in plenty of time for us to enjoy our day. I would definitely recommend this talented, versatile stylist to anyone who needs a skilled artist for a special event.
