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).

Jira did my hair and makeup on my wedding day (10/20/12). She did a fab job matching the exact hair style I wanted and doing my makeup so I looked stunning. I highly recommend her.

To be most successfully, I recommend coming with an exact style you’d like her to create. Megan~

Featured Trial Session for a 2012 Wedding

Perfect Timing; The time of day for your wedding will affect your makeup choices. A more natural look for a morning wedding varies greatly from the more dramatic look of an evening ceremony.  The way the sunlight changes throughout the day can influence the way your makeup appears in photos.

We divide brides into 4 Categories, based on the time of day they ‘re getting married: Morning, midday, late afternoon, and evening. With each time choice, there are certain details you’ll want to consider. Paying attention to there details can help you get the look, and the wedding photos, of your dreams

Wowpretty showcases a trial session for a 2012 wedding, Monica, who is  one of Wowpretty brides for midday wedding in City hall. The makeup is best inside City Hall and Outdoors after her ceremony.

Wowpretty prefers to take photos in the natural light  to see ALL the makeup and hair details. No photoshop needed to adjust any color or skin and Makeup and hair.  we also need to take all 360  degree photos of her in order to her to  see all the angles.      We are so honored to be a just  small part of her/ all weddings in 2012!!Featured Trial Session Makeup and Hair

Review from Yelp

I guess that I was a little late thinking about hair and makeup for my wedding this summer, so luckily for me, Adrianna, my wedding coordinator from Dream a Little Dream Events, suggested Wowpretty to me.  I made an appointment for a trial with Elena, and she totally understood what I wanted–to look natural but of course better than my ‘normal’ self :)

On the day of my wedding, Elena and Lang worked some serious magic on my four bridesmaids and me!  The five of us all had hair and makeup done at the wedding venue, which was a lot of fun, and helped build up our excitement for the wedding.  My hair was even more interesting and beautiful than the trial, stayed smooth and up all night, and my face stayed dew-y and glow-y and NOT shiny all night too!  I can’t wait to get photos from our photographer to share with everyone.  Thank you so much for making me feel and look so pretty on my wedding day!  Go with Wowpretty–you’ll be happy you did.    Marlo~
