InterContinental Hotel in San Francisco, Wedding Makeup and Hair

M&H : Jira of Wowpretty


yelp-icon5.0 star rating  Yelp

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.

5 stars reviewed from from Jennifer
Jira, Angie, and Elena were fantastic to work with for our bridal party. Jira did my bridal makeup, while Angie/Elena did makeup/hair for 4 bridesmaids and my mom. From the beginning when I emailed back and forth with Jira, she was helpful, responsive, and accommodating. I did a trial with Jira, and she is easy and comfortable to talk to. Even though I came prepared with sample pictures of hair, I appreciated that she was honest about what she thought wouldn’t work for me. Still she tried it out to show me and after I saw that she was totally right, we moved on to trying other styles! I also appreciated that she actually let me change the final look at the end of the session because I was doing engagement photos that day. I was surprised that other vendors specifically called out having to pay separately for a trial makeup session vs. engagement photo makeup session.

On the day of, Jira and her team arrived at 6:45am (15 min earlier than expected!) . Angie and Elena were friendly, sweet, and efficient with the girls and my mother. My mother had been skeptical about having hair and makeup done, but it turned out great. Even with the short amount of time allotted (we planned on 30 min per person for hair and makeup), Elena really listened to what each girl wanted and then quickly transformed bed hair into sleek curls, loose waves coming out of a low bun, and glam braids. And when one of the bridesmaids was indecisive and still wanted to change her hairstyle because it didn’t look like the picture she brought, Elena continued to be calm and accommodating.

As for Jira, I truly am grateful for her mastery. After my engagement session, I told her that the eyeliner creeped, and that I wanted to opt for a different lip color. On the wedding day, she had a print out of all her notes from her our engagement session and edits for different products. I was just overall impressed how much heart and soul she put into me as a bride. I normally don’t wear any makeup, so it was a bit peculiar to look in the mirror and see the intense eye makeup she was applying. She assured me that it would look much less intense in photos. Again, she was absolutely right. She has an incredible talent of understanding color and contour and how light plays into it all.

Jira is opening her own salon this summer, and I am already a convert of her cosmetic products. She’s fun to just be around, so with her new salon, I’m glad I’ll be able to just pop in and chat with her in her new digs!

Destination Wedding at The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa

Mckenzie and Shane contacted me last year regarding makeup and hair for their destination wedding at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa! They also wanted us to take care of her 6 bridesmaids and 2 mothers. Since they came in from Florida, they could not have a trial session.

Even though it rained all day, we as makeup artists had to make sure the makeup and hair was perfect and would last all day. The curl for all the ladies lasted all day into the night and they sent us a letter saying “thanks for making us look beautiful”. We also use a technique developed by Jira that keeps the makeup on all day WITHOUT TOUCHUPS! Here the pictures of the day…

Always thank you to all of our lovely clients past and future and remember…

“Every day is special!”  Love!!

A Girl’s Dream Come True : Jira Couture!

Just wanted to say how lucky I am to have this new article done by the brilliant Jutta Lammerts Of      Enjoy!  Jira~

Jira couture article







































































And as Jira is a perfectionist in all she does (just look at her hair and make-up work, published in wedding magazines all over and coveted by SF Bay Area brides like mine, at A Day Like No Other) it comes as no surprise that her cosmetics products are of the highest quality: FDA-approved, mineral-based and hypoallergenic, loaded with anti aging ingredients, UV protection and antioxidants. Every year, Jira brings out a new collection. Since 2012, you can buy everything online, through the Jira Couture website. She did her job here perfectly, again!

Personal question to Jira: what are your own favorites? After some begging, she shared the secret with us: her “Daily One Minute Make-up!” Just watch – you can do that, too!
