I had the most amazing experience with Tamara and Melanie. They were absolutely fabulous from my trial to the day of my wedding. From Make-Up to Hair.. everything was flawless. I am beyond happy with my experience. All 7 girls were SO happy with how they looked..AND it all lasted the entire day and night!! They were so friendly and super easy to work with. I cant gush enough about them.
I will always recommend Tamara and her team to everyone!!!

I chose Tamara's team for my hair and makeup along with my bridesmaids and mother of the Bride and mother of the Groom. Erica was our hair stylist and she was so kind and friendly during the entire process. She sculpted our exact vision for the bridesmaids and was able to recreate my hair EXACTLY from our hair and makeup trial.
Darbie was our makeup artist and she is a true artist by creating and bring out the true beauty in the wedding party. (FYI Brides: Highly would recommend air brushing AND the eyelashes!!!)
I would also recommend a hair and makeup trial so you can get the exact look you're desiring. I brought in a few tears of my favorite looks and Erica and Darbie really made those looks come to life for me.
I felt so beautiful during my entire wedding and have Erica and Darbie to thank for that! A truly wonderful team and felt like I was hanging out with my girlfriends and getting ready for the big day.

I was nervous about picking hair and makeup for my wedding because I just wanted to look perfect, but Tamara and her girls are great! I had Erika for hair and Jolisa for makeup and both were wonderful. Very friendly, fun girls - they both know what they are doing, you just need to trust them! I was also nervous because some of my bridesmaids are picky about their hair and makeup but they all loved their hair and makeup! And they did a great job of staying on schedule and getting us done in a timely matter, but still left time for touch-ups.

Working with Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry was not only easy and fun but totally worth it! They provided a professional yet memorable day for us! Whatever we had in mind for our hair or makeup to look they went above and beyond that. If we didn't like something or wanted something else, they were attentative and listened. Compliments were given all day (and night!) because that's how long everything lasted and our hair held up! :) Which in my book is beyond the 5 star rating you can give on here! I can honestly say there wasn't a thing I would change about how I looked or the fun experience we had that day. They make you feel so comfortable like you're doing hair and make up with close friends. :) I'd recommend them to anyone wanting their big day to be special and memorable.

Tamara even though from Chicago drove all the way down to Orlando Florida with her partner in crime Melanie to do my wedding party's hair and make-up for my Big Day. Recommended from my cousin Alison who was married two years ago, We had to get the best in the business. Since we have family in the Chicago area when we visited for a graduation we had set up a trial run. Her studio was absolutely amazing. A whole room set with big bright lights, a makeup chair of course, and a huge mirror. And the people that I brought along got to sit on a comfy couch and watch the entire process. When I walked out of the trial I looked like belle from beauty and the beast. My own grandmother didn't even recognize me. She brought out the natural beauty in my skin and enhanced my natural features. I am very happy that we decided to go with Tamara and her team!!

I am so unbelievably thankful for Tamara Makeup & Hair Artistry and their wonderful work on our May 25, 2013 wedding day. I had heard about them through one of my friends (the owner of Shannon Gail Weddings & Events) and booked them as soon as possible.
I had zero issues when scheduling my trial at Tamara's studio in her home. Such a cute place! I found out there that I would be working with Cristina for makeup, and Jody for hair. They were some of the nicest people that I have ever met, and really worked with me to listen to my requests of what I wanted for my hair/makeup. Jody even created a brand new style for me after showing her a few pictures of what I liked! I was so happy after leaving the trial and could not wait to have them do mine and my girls' hair and makeup the day of the wedding.
On the day of, they arrived a bit early (yay!) with all of their materials in the conference room at the hotel we reserved. Jody and Cristina each had an assistant since we had such a large group of women getting services done. The assistants were a HUGE help,and were extremely talented as well. All of the artists did a fabulous job and were right on schedule, and even a bit early! This was extremely important to me, as there were 12 of us for hair and makeup (very large group!). I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
I received so many compliments on my hair and makeup, especially since it was perfect the entire day (which was a LONG day too). It was flawless from the first look (11:30am) all the way through the pictures until the ceremony (5pm) - where there were a number of tears shed, with zero mascara run!- , through the reception (midnight), AND all the way until 3am as my husband, friends, and family closed down our favorite bar at the afterparty. I couldn't believe how perfect my hair and makeup stayed - when they say it's long wear makeup, they mean it!
I cannot thank Jody, Cristina, their assistants, and Tamara enough for their services. These ladies are some of the most talented artists I've ever met, and I will (and already have!) recommend them for anyone who wants a professional, friendly, and talented artists for their wedding day.

Tamara and her team are truly money well spent. My girls and I looked and felt amazing on my wedding day. Christina was excellent at understanding what we all wanted for makeup. She was not heavy handed at all. Everyone looked flawless! Melanie is probably the most talented hairstylist I've ever seen. ( I grew up working in salons so I was extremely picky about my hair) she created the most beautiful hairstyles. Everything (hair and makeup) lasted all night. The girls were just the right amount of friendly and professional. I am recommending them to everyone!

My makeup artist's name was Darby- she is incredibly talented, friendly, quick, and will not leave you disappointed! I showed her one photo from Pinterest of a makeup style I liked and she totally transformed my look and made me feel the most beautiful I've EVER felt in my life! Another big factor that really impressed me was that she finished early- and she did makeup for 10 people! That NEVER happens!! If you are looking for THE BEST makeup artists, Tamara is the way to go!

We were assigned Darby for makeup and Sabrina for hair. My trial was beyond my expectation. They arrived on time and were a blast to work with. I had 5 bridesmaids and 4 junior bridesmaids. We all had our hair and makeup done and everyone was thrilled! Darby and Sabrina are very talented and listened to what each person desired. A couple of bridesmaids can be hard to please but boy were they happy with the results! Great women to work with!

I had both a Hindu and a non denominational ceremony all in one day. Tamara and her crew were on the dot with time and the looks I wanted. My guests kept complementing me on my make up! For the Hindu ceremony she does not place the face jewels. Although she was expensive, I loved my looks so much that I would chose Tamara and her crew in a heart beat!

Tamara and company are amazing! They were professional and everyone looked so good. It was exactly how I envisioned it.

I worked with Cristine and Jody for my wedding day. They are AMAZING! My hair and makeup was perfect. They can take any picture, concept, and/or idea and turn it into a reality. My wedding party absolutely raved about them as well. They were friendly, fun, and are truly talented artists. You cannot go wrong with them!

They are friendly, fun and VERY talented! They did an absolutely beautiful job with the hair and makeup for the entire bridal party. I would definitely recommend them!! The fact that they come to your house is also a huge plus!

My make-up and hair were perfect for my wedding day and working with Cristina and Melanie was wonderful. They helped to make each and every one of my girls (and Mom) feel beautiful.

Tamara and I hit it off right from the start. She gave great recommendations for what would look best for ME and the look I was going for. I not only felt beautiful for my wedding, but I also still looked like me. Not only did I love my makeup, but all of my bridesmaids did as well and they looked fabulous! Thank you so much Tamara!

Jody Campbell brought many skills in “hair artistry,” to my daughter’s wedding day. She was delightful, professional, on-time and well prepared. A smile never left her face. Jody was open to multiple style ideas and photos brought in by the bride, her five bridesmaids, one sister and myself, the proud mother of the bride. She was adept at creating a fresh, new look for each member of the bridal party. Everyone looked gorgeous and was so happy with both the outcome and the process. Jody showed up at our downtown hotel bridal suite at 8 AM, and the hair and makeup extravaganza never slowed until the photographer and videographer showed up at 1 PM. Jody seemed to genuinely enjoy taking part in such a joyous, momentous occasion. Jody came to our home for the pre-wedding hair trial with my daughter, a bride otherwise fully occupied with medical school. Jody understood Alison’s desire for a natural up-do, yet found a way to make a simple bun into a special little “present”. She created a fuller look without hair extensions for all of the young women. Everyone looked and felt glamorous, well-pampered by Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry. I highly recommend this team!

The customer service is awesome from this company. I worked with Sabrina for hair and Darbie for makeup. They had such great attitudes and they really listened to what each of us wanted for our looks. I am so happy that I went with a company to handle my hair and makeup. I did not stop getting compliments about my look on my wedding day. Thank you to all!

I loved having Darby (make-up artist) and Sabrina (hair stylist) from Tamara Makeup and Hair Artistry be a part of my wedding on October 6, 2012. They both were great to work with and listened to our suggestions. They are very talented and I knew that I was in good hands!
I definitely recommend their services for your big day!

I honestly couldn't say enough good things about Tamara Hair + Makeup Artistry! From contacting Tamara and her team, to the professionalism shown, everything was perfect. Christina did make-up and Melanie did hair for my big day. When I went for my trial (which was just a few days before!), Christina made me feel totally at ease and created such a gorgeous look that lasted all throughout my work day. I was even taken aback at how neat and pretty the space at Tamara's condo was for the trials!
On the day-of Christina and Melanie were early and began right away. My girls looked so gorgeous and so many people commented on how they looked! My mom's not used to wearing so much make-up and Christina was able to minimize what she had initially done with no problems at all. My make-up lasted all night. Now, as for my hair; Melanie is a saint! She curled my extensions and applied them into my hair with ease and perfection. I was very particular about how I wanted my hair to look like, and she created the exact look I was going for! My curls lasted all day, even into the next morning! I absolutely love the look Christina and Melanie created. Tamara could easily charge way more for her services, this company is a steal compared to so many others! Even the salon I work at charges more for updos and makeup than Tamara! My only wish is that they include a trial with the price...or at least downgrade how much a trail is. Other than that, I have no other complaints!
Tamara & her team have many years of professional experience,working on countless numbers of weddings, print work, fashion shows, photo shoots, and more. Be sure to check out their website and reviews! Tamara & team will help make your wedding day unforgettable, from the trial to the big day!
