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.

Andrea did my hair and makeup and my bridal party's hair and makeup. She did amazing work!! My makeup made it through hot humid Texan weather and I loved the false eyelashes. It looked so natural but really brought out my best features. People still remark about how I looked on my wedding day! She is so sweet to work with too and so fun! Highly recommend her!

Tamala was very attentive to my needs. (I am extremely difficult at times and very picky). I don't wear much makeup and have been known to wipe it off. Tamala made me look really natural and I received compliments all evening about my makeup.She also did makeup on my 14 year old who is very prone to acne, she made her completion look very smooth and her makeup was very natural.

Durann was incredible! I hired her for hair and makeup for my wedding. When she arrived I quickly noticed how friendly she was and she fit right in with the group of girls. It was like having another bridesmaid there. She laughed along with all our jokes, but was also professional. I told her what I was looking for in a makeup style and it blew my mind to see how well she did. Each girl's makeup was unique to her skin tone, eye color, etc. The eye shadow, blush, and lipstick colors all complimented their natural features, and enhanced it all! She brought another friendly woman named Alyssa to do hair. Alyssa fit right in, too. She was open to trying anything and flexible to make changes along the way. She's awesome at braiding and created gorgeous looks. I will definitely book Durann again!! You should too!

Jessika is an amazing makeup artist with wonderful skills in beautiful makeup application. She did makeup for me and my mother, and we both loved it and got lots of compliments. Jessika also led me and my bridesmaids in a relaxing yoga session the morning of my ceremony, and that was one of the best choices I made for that day. Totally worth it! Rest assured, you will be taken care of and feel beautified when Jessika does your makeup and/or if you choose yoga!

Wedding makeup for bride and bridal party. Bertha was very attentive and friendly. Her prices were fair for her professionalism and quality of products. She created a great makeup style for my bridesmaids and the special look I imagined for myself. I also appreciated that she brought an assistant with her which made things go smoother and faster without rushing. Definitely recommend!

She is absolutely amazing!!! I would recommend her to anybody who need a makeup artist. She was very punctual, she showed up at the time she said she would. Which is very important because I hate when people are late and she wasn't. Her communication was great and she really wanted to understand my vision for my fashion photoshoot. She really understood what I was wanting with the photos I sent her. When she arrived I didn't say anything to her specific to the make up. I just let her do her thing and she did the makeup spot on to what I wanted. All in all she was very professional, sweet, high quality work and her response time was almost immediate. I will definitely use her again!

For someone who rarely wears makeup, I've never felt more comfortable and beautiful with a full face than from Estelle. I felt confident on my date that night and wasn't even worried about my makeup feeling crappy on my face. Great product quality and wonderful service!

I've used Aprul twice and plan to use her again. She did my daughter's hair and makeup for prom and graduation. Aprul is a very talented makeup artist who loves what she does. Her passion is evident in her work. Aprul is extremely professional, knowledgeable, up to date on the trends, and really takes to time to listen to what you want. I highly recommend her!

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:

Suzanne is a superb makeup artist! She considered many things when deciding on colors and asked lots of questions to ensure she used the right makeup. The airbrush looked amazing, made my skin look flawless! The eye makeup complimented my blue eyes beautifully. I couldn't be happier with the result and highly recommend her!!!

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.

Angie and her stylists were on time and did an impressive job! Everyone got their hair styled as desired especially me, the bride to be at the time. Angie was able to create a personalized look for me using several photographs I had for ideas of a pin up look with a side ponytail. It came out spectacular in my wedding photos and it stayed picture perfect til the end of my day, at 3 am ;) I also recommend Angie's make up artist as she was able to adjust and personalize my look as I am very particular with how my makeup is done. But then again, who isn't? I was stunning. Together the hair and makeup on myself and the bridal party was amazing. Before the big Angie also kept in touch via e-mail for estimates, confirmation, and to answer the hundreds of questions I seemed to have. She responded immediately and politely. I would definitely recommend Angie Riojas' team for a special event such as a shower, wedding, graduation, dance, etc. Thank you again Angie!
