This review is for Jira who did wedding hair and makeup for me for my December 2014 wedding in San Francisco. I had booked Jira for a trial session and gave her pictures of what I had in mind. She listened to my concerns since I have oily skin and wanted my makeup to last all day but I also wanted it to look as natural as possible. I also have very fine black hair and I was concerned that I wouldn’t have enough volume for an updo. Two weeks before the wedding, I got my hair highlighted and trimmed by Jira and I am so glad I did. The wedding pictures for my hair came out so vibrant in color and it had so much more dimension and volume.

On the wedding day, I had decided to make some adjustments from what we had done in the trial and Jira went above and beyond my expectations. My skin had gotten lighter in color, and I have very pale skin, and I was concerned that the makeup might be too dark. With facials, my skin had cleared up significantly so I wanted Jira to put less layers of the airbrush makeup so that it didn’t feel too heavy. Not only did the color match exactly, but my skin looked radiant and I barely felt like I was wearing any makeup. She also made my sparse eyebrows look natural and full. She used individual eyelash extensions with different lengths and made them look very natural and flirty. At the end of the day my makeup and hair still looked amazing.

I would definitely recommend Jira for hair and makeup. She is very reliable and extremely quick to responding to any questions and provides some of the best prices in the area.

Wowpretty Destination Wedding Hawaii
  review from Gillian
We got married in Lana’i, Hawaii and Jira traveled to Hawaii to do our hair and makeup. Our wedding party included 3 bridesmaids, a flower girl, mother of bride, and myself.

From the first time I met Jira for the trial consultation, she was a great listener about how I envisioned my look for the big day. She also recommended different ways to do my makeup to bring more attention to my eyes and ways to give the illusion of a slimmer face. At the same trial consultation, Jira’s expert hands worked magic with my hair. I have long hair and it;s always long & straight. Within 30 min, Jira was able to give me 8 diff. styles, and each was so beautiful that it was difficult to pick one for the big day because I wanted them all. Jira was very flexible with her travel schedule that it made coordinating her flight and hotel very stress free for me as the bride. On our big day, I honestly have never ever felt and looked more beautiful. Keep in mind that the temperature was approaching 100F in Hawaii, there was no cloud in the sky, light wind, and I was in a very heavy tulle dress. With that said, Jira’s expert hands and products made me feel so natural, as if I didn’t have makeup on. I didn’t feel at all like I was in danger of my makeup melting off. In fact, my makeup stayed on all afternoon and into the night and I never once needed a touch up (except for my lipstick). I quite literally took my husband’s breath away (he cried as I walked down) that he, and all my family, commented on how beautiful the hair and makeup was. So many of my friends have asked for Jira’s info. In the photos that my family took (we’re still waiting for the professional photos as I write this) my skin looked so luminous, like i was glowing, my blush was the perfect shade giving me that “blushing bride” look, and my eyes have never been so perfectly smoked.

I am so thankful for Jira’s work in making my dream come true to help me feel literally like the prettiest girl in the world for one day. Gillian~

Jira is the best. She did my wedding day makeup and hair and did a wonderful job. Elena also assisted with my bridesmaid’s hair and my mom’s hair and makeup. They are such a great team and work so efficiently. I think we were ahead of schedule because of their hard work. They put so much effort into making your wishes come true and that goes for my bridesmaid’s hair too.

Couldn’t be happier with their service. I’ll likely go back for hair and makeup when my husband and I do our one year anniversary wedding shoot. And Jira, if you’re reading this, thank you again!!! You were amazing. =) Maureen~
