Jira is amazing. Not only is she beautiful but she is also a very kind person. The thing I valued most able Jira is her honesty. So many vendors will tell you want to hear—not Jira—she straight up tells you the truth. You don’t know how much I appreciated that. She did an outstanding job helping me create the “look” I wanted for my wedding—1920s old Hollywood. My make-up and hair never looked so great. They looked so good, I now have her cut, color, and style my hair on a regular basis at her salon in San Mateo! Her team also did H & M for 6 other people in my wedding. All were pleased with her work and looked great. Finally, Jira made communication super easy. She is very responsive over email, always returning calls/emails within 24 hours. Her contracting is straight forward and she was even EARLY to do my H & M on wedding day. Overall experience: A+!


Wowpretty was selected a “Best of Project Wedding” Vendor by the Project Wedding community.

full wedding vendor review starfull wedding vendor review starfull wedding vendor review starfull wedding vendor review starfull wedding vendor review starJira 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. =)

Flood Mansion San Francisco Wedding VDO: Serena & Alan

Reviewed on Yelp

Jira is a makeup super-hira!  (Superhero, for those who can’t “hear” the phonetic fun.)

Jira was my hair and makeup stylist for my wedding and her team also did the hair and makeup for my five bridesmaids. Everyone looked incredible and everyone’s hair and makeup lasted well through the entire wedding (a good 8 hours and beyond).

I purposely waited a while to write this review because I wanted to see all my wedding photos and my wedding video to do a true rating.  Truly 5 stars – everyone (especially me!) looked radiant in all mediums.  It doesn’t surprise me though because the way I found out about Wowpretty/Jira is THROUGH a video.  (I was screening for videographers and I saw a Thomas Hughes video – review to come – and one bride’s makeup was just natural, glowing and beautiful and I said, “I want that look!” and I saw her credits on the video’s website.)

I did a trial session with Jira and it was totally worth it.  Some people think it’s pricey to do, but hey, would you buy a car without taking it for a test drive?  It’s your wedding and you’ve got to make sure that the stylist makes you look your best and that you still feel like “you”, only more gorgeous on your wedding day!

This is how much I endorse Jira:
1)  I entrusted her to cut my long hair for my pre-wedding haircut.  Not only was it optimal for the updo I had chosen, but months later, it remained an all-around awesome haircut.

2)  My Maid of Honor hired Jira to do her makeup for a special event (outside of my wedding events)and even hired her for makeup lessons.

3)  I ONLY wanted Jira to do my hair and makeup.  She has a very talented crew, but I wanted the best of the best!

My bridemaids and I looked amazingly beautiful on my wedding day, Jira and her team were on time and very professional and Jira was very responsive to any questions or style requests.  Magnifique!

The Julia Morgan Ballroom San Francisco Wedding VDO : Stacey + Kevin

In 2002 Stacey Lee was my first model that I did Makeup for at a shoot in SF. Since then we had lost touch with each other. Until 2009 out of the blue Stacey contacted and told me that she was getting married.
I was shocked and so happy at the same time that this Beautiful model who is well-known contacted me to be her Makeup artist for her wedding day. She could find any other makeup artist instead of me and she thought of me. What an honor and priviledge. I believe all bay area makeup artists would die to be my place. Now whenever I see her wedding picture or video I’m so honored to be just a small part on her wedding day.


Reviewed from Yelp for Jira of Wowpretty

Gosh I’ve known Jira almost 8 years now.  We first worked together on a photoshoot years ago.  She really knows how to do Asian make-up.

Needless to say I had to have her do my wedding at the Julia Morgan Ballroom this past May.  Jira uses an airbrush technique of foundation that lasted 12+ hours and through the my various tearing sessions throughout the day/night.  Yay for her water proof mascara.  Not only did it last all day but turned out flawless in photos.  I just got my proofs back from my photographer Chung Photo. Her team was able to do hair/make-up for a bride, 6 bridesmaids, mom and cousin in 5 hours time.  Right on schedule.  She’s also does great cut/color and extensions too.  The Works!!

Brides: if you have a certain style or look you’re looking to recreate, just tear out a picture and bring it to your trial session.

I uploaded a few pics from our engagement session/wedding  ~Stacey


Reviewed from Yelp for Jira Couture Cosmetics, NYC

Jira Couture (JC)  is a new cosmetic line that is being launched by Jira of WowPretty.  Girls, if you’ve been married or know friends who have, then you have heard of Jira and her amazing  team of experienced wedding hair stylist & make-up artists.  She has been in the industry for over a decade & I’m excited about the launch of her new cosmetic line.

I recently switched over to the new mineralized loose powder & blush about two weeks ago and am loving the results.  The loose powder is SPF15 & all items are FDA approved.  The active ingredients are the same as those that are used in commercial branded cosmetics which are sold in your local department stores.

If JC was available on my wedding day, I would have bought the entire line so that I could have done small touch ups throughout the day.  Not that I needed it, but it’s a good idea to always have it readily available. Plus, every girl wants look her best like she did on her wedding day right?

I can’t wait till the e-store goes live in about 1-2 months.  I’m going to order a slew of the lip glosses.  Hopefully ,they’ll be offered in a set. Be sure to take a sneak peak of the site as Jira is already fulfilling orders through direct email, friends, family, past and present clients.  ~Stacey
