Review on

I had a privilege to have Sooyeon as my hair and makeup artist on my wedding last weekend. Prior to the wedding, I got a trial from Sooyeon to discuss different hair styles and makeup ideas. The entire meeting went very smoothly and she gave me lots of beauty tips.

On the wedding day, she arrived on time and handled four people without any delay! Her skills and speed were incredible. While working on my bridesmaids’ hair, she gave me special gold facial peeling gel and a facial mask, noticing my tired skin from strenuous planning and lack of sleep! Because my eyes can easily get makeup smudged, she put extra powder and support under my eyes — no smudging even after 10 hours of partying! Another thing that I want to highlight about her service is eyelash extensions. Instead of gluing a big batch, she put individual eye lashes one by one, which turned out to be not only beautiful but also comfortable! They all lasted strong throughout the entire day & night. Did I also mention I got air brushed? So natural and comfortable….I just got the best of the best makeup and hair service from Sooyeon and it all happened without ANY delay!

Sooyeon is very flexible and approachable. Once you show her sample photos, she instantly understands what you want and executes the style by reflecting your natural beauty. If you want something different, just tell her and she will show you another style right away. She also uses some special Korean cosmetics with beautiful colors that you can’t easily find in America! (And perfect for Asian girls)

With Sooyeon, all my bridesmaids were super happy and so was I!

Reviewed on Wedding wire! 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!
