San Francisco City Hall Wedding Makep and Hair

I have had such a lovely time being a makeup artist for San Francisco City Hall Wedding Makeup and Hair.  Here is Jen after makeup and hair done by me/Jira on her wedding day 2/26/15. She came before to get colors and deep conditioning done as well, which we highly recommend. Get more information about cuts, color or the Jira Couture full salon here….

I highly recommend WowPretty to anyone looking for a make-up and hair stylist for their wedding. I think their strongest points are:

1) Great professional and friendly personality (my stylist was Jira)

2) Talent to create a beautiful but natural make up look (perfect for my wedding, which took place in the hot month of August, outdoors in a garden)

3) Dependability/pulling through (at the end of the day, you just want to not have to worry about if your make up artist will show up/mess up/etc. and Wow Pretty consistently maintained throughout the entire time we worked with them a high level of trustworthiness that made me feel really comfortable/stress-free about relying on them as the wedding stylist).

Hakone Estate & Garden Wedding : Jodie & Blair

Wowpretty met Jolie from Lili, who was a referral and Lili was one of our past brides back in 2009. Jodie & Blair wedding was so amazing. The photos came out some great by Vero Suh Photography. Wowpretty loves to keep in touch Jodie and Lili and be our friend on the Facebook and we look forward in taking care of both of them for makeup, hair cut and color.

I first met Jira in 2010 when my best friend got married and was referred to Jira + WowPretty for makeup for her/bride and the wedding party. I loved Jira and her team’s friendliness, efficiency (great makeup and hair in good time on a wedding morning), and quality of work (hair and makeup last all morning noon and night). By my wedding in 2012, I didn’t even consider going anywhere else for my makeup and hair. As soon as I knew my wedding date, I contacted Jira directly to secure her for me, my MoH and Mom. As expected, Jira wowed me and I couldn’t have been more pleased with how my hair and makeup turned out. She even helped me make my flower girl’s special wishes come true and put her hair up with some flowers and she felt like I did – beautiful and happy! I’ve recommended WowPretty to numerous friends since. Jira is a wonderful businesswoman and stylist. adore her!  Jodie~

Wowpretty was one of the first vendors i hired almost immediately after i got engaged. I already knew that Jira was one of the best in the industry and i booked her quick because she gets booked up fast! I didn’t even go in for a trial and went with my gut that she would do a great job. I ended up doing a trial after i booked her and it came out exactly the way i envisioned. She understood that i wanted to look natural but still have color. She took her time to make my hair and makeup perfect. On the day of the wedding, she and four of her makeup artists all arrived on time at my hotel. They worked their butts off to get myself, 8 of my bridesmaids and 2 mothers done in 3 hours! Jira made my makeup perfect and it stayed put all day ( 6 am-midnight) ! She is extremely talented at what she does. Do not hesitate to book her if you are looking for a top notch makeup/hair team!  Ling~

I hired Jira and her team to do hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids, my future sister-in-law, and the mothers. Jira is the owner and head makeup artist for WowPretty. She is very talented and she makes what she does look effortless. Her team is professional, friendly, and, most importantly, very good at what they do. Jira did a terrific job at my hair & makeup trial and it was a no brainer to hire her. Additionally, if you want a guy’s opinion, my now husband thought my hair and makeup from the trial looked great too. She has tons of experience and her website shows all the brides she has worked with and the positive testimonials. She’s very responsive via email. On the wedding day, she and her team showed up promptly and efficiently got to work since we had so many people. 
The final product was gorgeous – natural, not overworked; it didn’t even feel like I had makeup on. The airbrushing is awesome. It makes your skin look so smooth. Everyone was satisfied with their hair and makeup. I can vouch that all of the women’s hair held up the entire night. It rained during my ceremony and my makeup still held. I thought her prices were reasonable given the quality product I was getting. With Jira and her team helping you on the day of, it’s one less thing you need to worry about. As a bride, that’s gold.   Alice~
