Yelp.com review from Gillian
We got married in Lana’i, Hawaii and Jira traveled to Hawaii to do our hair and makeup. Our wedding party included 3 bridesmaids, a flower girl, mother of bride, and myself.
From the first time I met Jira for the trial consultation, she was a great listener about how I envisioned my look for the big day. She also recommended different ways to do my makeup to bring more attention to my eyes and ways to give the illusion of a slimmer face. At the same trial consultation, Jira’s expert hands worked magic with my hair. I have long hair and it;s always long & straight. Within 30 min, Jira was able to give me 8 diff. styles, and each was so beautiful that it was difficult to pick one for the big day because I wanted them all. Jira was very flexible with her travel schedule that it made coordinating her flight and hotel very stress free for me as the bride. On our big day, I honestly have never ever felt and looked more beautiful. Keep in mind that the temperature was approaching 100F in Hawaii, there was no cloud in the sky, light wind, and I was in a very heavy tulle dress. With that said, Jira’s expert hands and products made me feel so natural, as if I didn’t have makeup on. I didn’t feel at all like I was in danger of my makeup melting off. In fact, my makeup stayed on all afternoon and into the night and I never once needed a touch up (except for my lipstick). I quite literally took my husband’s breath away (he cried as I walked down) that he, and all my family, commented on how beautiful the hair and makeup was. So many of my friends have asked for Jira’s info. In the photos that my family took (we’re still waiting for the professional photos as I write this) my skin looked so luminous, like i was glowing, my blush was the perfect shade giving me that “blushing bride” look, and my eyes have never been so perfectly smoked.
I am so thankful for Jira’s work in making my dream come true to help me feel literally like the prettiest girl in the world for one day. Gillian~

Jira Couture Mineral Duo Bronzer for your special day.
Description: Hypoallergenic. Matte bronze and shimmering powder in one compact. Innovative mineral formula minimizes fine lines while maximizing a healthy glow. Color-coordinated for wear over moisturizer or foundation to shade and contour cheeks, or brush both shades all over face, neck and décolleté to create a bronzy, “sunless tan”.
How to Apply Bronzer for a Sun Kissed Look:
Bronzer: Look at the apples of the cheeks to see how the cheekbones angle upwards. Using a round fluffy blush brush, start at the cheekbones going down and back with the darker bronzer. Very lightly, take the brush to the top of the forehead, working down to the temple and the chin in the motion of the number 3.

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~
