In my search for hair and make-up for the wedding, I kept seeing the reviews for Beautiful Faces by Janis. Janis was easy to work with in the initial planning process, answering my questions, helping to create the schedule, and making sure that...
we had the right stylist fit.
For the trial, I had to travel to Boston to where my hair and makeup stylist lived (not a huge deal living in Portland, but just something that you might want to be aware of.) Overall, the trial went really well, with both JoJo (Hair) and Deidra (Make-Up) viewing my pictures and Pinterest board beforehand and making sure that they had a good sense of what I wanted. They were both very personable and very easy to get along with throughout the wedding planning process! There was some miscommunication on the number of stylists, but everything worked out in the end!
On my wedding day, the hair and makeup team arrived early and they were extremely efficient. Everyone's hair and make-up looked so beautiful and stayed in place for most of the wedding. We were on schedule and even finished hair early, with time for touch-ups at the end which was wonderful. As the bride, I had some hair fall out of the style BUT I traveled on the water taxi, trolley, and on a ferry, so it definitely wasn't unexpected with all of the wind and ocean breeze. My hair and makeup were exactly what I was looking for on my big day, and I got so many compliments. I still felt like myself, but a prettier, fancier version! Throughout the day, JoJo and Diedra did such a great job keeping the mood light and fun before the wedding.
Pricewise as well, the rates are lower to about average to what I have seen, but it is definitely worth it along with a low cost of travel and the high quality we received!
Hiring Beautiful Faces by Janis, and JoJo and Deidra was such a good decision for my wedding, and I would recommend anyone else to do the same!

The founder/owner of the company (Janis) was our makeup artist, and Amanda was our hair stylist. Both were complete pros and did an excellent job making us photo-ready for the wedding. They also came to our hotel suite in Boston, which was super convenient and worth the travel fees.
I went for a hair and make-up trial run at Janis's home studio before my wedding, which was fun and helpful and gave me confidence going into the big day. I ended up making a few minor tweaks to my look on the actual day of my wedding (toned down my eyes and changed my lip color), which Janis was very supportive of. I typically wear little makeup, so it felt strange to have so much makeup on...but (as everyone assured me beforehand) it didn't look like I was wearing a ton in my photos and at the end of the night, my face and hair were still perfectly intact.
Both Janis and Amanda have great personalities and made the getting-ready portion of the day light and bright. They're both open to ideas and photos of what you like, so go ahead and do some research before you go in to create your wedding-day look. That being said, they're also very experienced and confident in their skills and will help guide you in the right direction if you're not sure what you want.

I didn’t want a ton of makeup because I wanted to look like myself, and Janis was great about checking in with me and making sure I had the look I wanted. She even special ordered a pair of ridiculously lightweight faux lashes because I didn’t want them to be too much. The wedding party all looked fantastic, but what is often overlooked is that everyone’s hair and makeup lasted all day. Janis and Amanda made sure to use enough pins and hairspray and setting powder or whatever so that everyone looked great from noon to 11pm.

Not only is she an incredible make-up artist, but she is also a lot of fun to hang out with, we all had a blast getting ready with Janis on the big day. I feel so lucky to have had Janis as my makeup artist for my wedding, I highly recommend booking Beautiful Faces for your wedding or you next special event!!

Not only did Janis and Amanda do amazing work, they are wonderful people who were a pleasure to work with! Janis truly knows everything there is to know about makeup, making her the perfect person to have on hand to glam up your wedding party. ...

I had Amanda for my hair and Michelle for my makeup. I really liked both of their personalities during the trial. They made me feel comfortable and they both did a good job of turning my inspiration into reality. After the trial, I has some ...
changes that I wanted to make, and both of them took that feedback and made my wedding day look perfect. And despite rainy outdoor pictures and dancing non-stop for four hours at the wedding, my hair and makeup did not budge.
The day of the wedding, they did hair and makeup for three bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law. Each girl has very different styles and all of them loved their hair and makeup. Everyone got exactly the look they wanted. The highest praise was from my Lebanese mother-in-law who was very nervous about having someone she didn’t pick do her hair and makeup. She told me multiple times after the wedding that she LOVED her hair and makeup, so much that she’d hire Michelle and Amanda for future events.

rtists for my wedding. I knew I wanted a professional to help me "elevate" my look on the big day, but I also wanted to feel like myself, and heavy makeup and over-the-top hair weren't part of my vision. I told all this to Janis, the owner of Beautiful Faces, and she understood right away, explaining that she was very comfortable doing more natural makeup looks, and worked with a hair stylist (Amanda, who's also amazing!) who specializes in curly hair. I knew then I wanted to hire Janis and Amanda for my wedding day.
Since I was planning my wedding from across the country, I had very limited availability for hair & makeup trials. But Janis and Amanda were very flexible, and fit me in during a trip I'd planned to the east coast. During the trial, Janis and Amanda listened carefully to what I wanted and didn't want, and worked with me to create looks that made me feel naturally beautiful - and like myself! Amanda was also super helpful in coming up with a style that used my natural curls, which was important to me, and patiently tweaked them after I'd changed my mind!
On the morning of my wedding, Janis, Amanda, and Deirdre arrived bright and early at 7:30 am ready to do hair and makeup for me and my "wedding crew" of 8, including 6 bridesmaids, our officiant, and my mom! Janis listened carefully to what each person wanted for their makeup and any concerns they had, making sure they were comfortable with the whole process. She was happy to adjust to their style - some women wanted minimal makeup and some wanted it heavier, and Janis worked effortlessly to bring out everyone's natural beauty and radiance! And I got that natural, glowing wedding day look I had hoped for. I highly recommend Janis and Amanda!

I booked Janis a year and a half in advance for my wedding and I am still shocked that I got her. She was so accommodating of all my needs and her communication was constant so I never had to worry about a thing leading up to my wedding. Janis ...
took her time during my trial to educate me on the makeup she was using as well as her techniques before explaining step by step what she was doing as she applied the makeup. I knew right off the bat that I needed her there on my wedding day and when it finally arrived I had absolutely no regrets. She made me feel like celebrity and I honestly could not be any happier with her work.
Aside from her incredible talent, Janis has THE BEST personality and made the morning of my wedding even more fun than it already was. She was an absolute hit with all 8 of my bridesmaids and she made my mom feel like a Queen. I was lucky enough that I had not booked a hairdresser before meeting with Janis for my trial because she put me in touch with her hair team (Alicia) who is ridiculously talented and so fun. Alicia came right to my house for my trial and when my wedding day came around a year later, she made my hair look exactly the way I always imagined it would and I know it would not have looked as great if not for her.
THANK YOU Janis & Alicia for your professionalism and excellent work!!! I am so grateful I chose you.

I had an absolutely AMAZING experience with Janis and Beautiful Faces. I wasn't sure how to go about choosing a hair and makeup artist but I knew I wanted someone who could come to me that morning and wanted to look great for a reasonable price...
. First thing I noticed on her website, filled me hope from the start--she featured a number of pictures of minority brides. As an African-American, though lighter toned, getting my makeup done by others has been hit or miss in the past. Not all white make up artists really know how to do makeup on darker skin tones without making me look paler. The fact that Janis showed experience working with a range of skin tones right from the start gave me confidence. She was helpful and clear in her emails and her prices very reasonable. When I had my trial with her for makeup and Janelle,for hair, I was blown away. I don't wear makeup on a daily basis, only for special occasions, and I'm always apprehensive that I won't look like me when it's done. When I saw myself in the mirror after my trial, I was amazed. I looked like the most glamorous but still comfortable version of me that I had ever been. My hair experience was equally amazing. Two pictures from Pinterest and Janelle instantly understood what I wanted and executed it to perfection. Notes and pictures were taken to ensure nothing was forgotten day-of.
Morning before the wedding, Janis and her team showed up on time and got me and my bridesmaids looking fabulous without a lick of stress. We were so far ahead of schedule that one of my bridesmaids who thought she didn't want professional makeup, and had only planned on getting her hair done, was able to change her mind once she saw how amazing the rest of us looked with our makeup done. It was a relaxing experience for what could have been a stressful morning with 7 women needing hair and makeup done in time for a 2:30 ceremony. I looked and felt amazing and beautiful all day thanks to the fabulous work of Janis and Janelle!

"over-done" while still making me feel beautiful. I hit the jackpot with "Beautiful Faces"!
When I met with Janis for my make-up trial and Janelle for my hair trial, they were very concerned that I felt comfortable and that they used styles that made me feel like "a better version of me." Janis invited my mom and grandma into her home for a trial, and put us quickly at ease with her extensive knowledge, incredible amount of product, and genial spirit. Janelle came directly to my house for the trial, and her friendly and funny demeanor made our time together feel more like hanging out with a good friend. After my trials, I never worried again for a moment about how I would look because I knew I was in such great hands!
Word spread of how great Janis and Janelle were... Next thing I knew, things had turned into "my big fat Italian wedding" and we had 12 people wanting hair and make-up services!!! Even though I had originally spoken to Janis about doing only four people, she immediately found additional staff for the day (Lindsay, Tanya), who also were excellent. They were even so kind as to do hair and make-up in two separate locations so that my elderly relatives would not need to climb the stairs to my parents' house. Even though we needed to get ready early since there were so many of us, our hair and make-up looked perfect for over 12 hours -- there was still not a faded lip color or hair out of place even after outdoor photos and hours of dancing.
I cannot recommend "Beautiful Faces" enough. I have never felt so beautiful!
