Amy and her team are simply amazing for both hair and makeup. I can't recommend her enough!!
I started looking for a hair stylist just 15 days before my wedding. Even though it was so last minute, I had put a LOT of time and effort into choosi...
ng the right hair stylist for me, my 7 bridesmaids, my aunt and my mom (10 people total). I'm so happy that I ended up choosing Amy out of the 14 artists that were on my list!!
I say above that I was looking for a hair stylist, because originally, my thought was that I could just do my makeup myself, since I do it on a daily basis anyway. Amy was so kind, understanding, and not pushy in any way when I told her this, that after a day of consideration and reviewing her makeup portfolio, I decided to book both makeup and hair. This was THE BEST beauty-related decision that I made for the wedding!
Because it was literally less than two weeks until my wedding, we didn't have time to do a trial. Amy asked for photo inspiration & references, my preferences on both hair & makeup, and incorporated my feedback in real time to create a look that's very "me".
Such artistry!! She expertly crafted a single polished look for me that coordinated perfectly with my three distinct wedding outfits: my tea ceremony dress, my white wedding dress, and my reception dress.
Amy and her team of three also did an incredible makeover for my mom and aunt, both of whom don't regularly do their makeup or hair and have the type of Asian eyelid shapes that causes smearing.
She and her team all arrived on time (7am on the dot) at our hotel room and finished on time (actually, even earlier), without making anyone in our huge group feel rushed or stressed, even though we were cramped in a small hotel room. They were so efficient and flexible that I had a whole 40 minutes to grab breakfast downstairs!
All of our makeup and hair were still flawless at the end of the night, which is truly impressive, considering how hot it was when we took wedding party pics at the park, that my bridesmaids took their N95 masks (with straps over their heads) on and off during our indoor reception, and that I am notoriously quick to tears ( & snot). The makeup all stayed on my face, with minimal touch-up, even after bawling my way through my vows.
In fact, everyone was so impressed with my look that at the reception, an auntie asked for my makeup/hair artist's info for her daughter's upcoming wedding!! I of course shared in a heartbeat, even though the wedding is in NorCal.
Thank you again, Amy, for such a wonderful experience and for making us feel beautiful on my special day.
