5 stars review on Yelp
Elena and Sooyen performed excellently at my wedding. They arrived on time, if not early, and were extremely patient, flexible, and helpful throughout the day. Everyone in the wedding party looked excellent.
Since Elena did my hair and makeup, I have some compliments specifically for her. First of all, she is an excellent makeup artist and hair stylist. Her technical skills and eye for complimentary colors and styles are superb. In addition, she takes feedback with grace. I never felt like I couldn’t speak up or ask for changes. She even took some from my photographer.
I received so many compliments on my hair and makeup. I was skeptical that the hairstyle would last all evening, but it looked perfect all throughout the night. I didn’t need any touch ups to my hair or makeup, other than reapplying lipstick.
Also, Elena is such a kind, good-natured individual. We really had a lot of fun together.

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.
