I chose Rena from Bright Crystal Wedding after thoroughly reading through all of her reviews. It sounded like she was able to work with all types of skin and all types of hair and she was very pleasant easy to talk to. These reviews were 110% c...
orrect and I'm so glad all my research led me to her. Her prices are fair, the makeup and hair she does is exactly what you ask for, her and her team arrived on time (early actually to get set up), and were insanely nice and understanding of all my girls needs and concerns. They got everything done in such a timely fashion without rushing. The makeup Rena did for me was natural-looking, but full coverage (exactly what I requested) and I never looked or felt prettier in my entire life, but I still looked 100% like ME. That's how everyone should feel on their wedding day. A huge reason I chose her besides her great hair/makeup reviews was things people said about her personality. I knew on my big day I would be nervous so I didn't want anyone with a personality too crazy/talkative to make me anxious or feel like I had to converse for the full 1-2hrs of getting my hair/makeup done. I needed that time to breathe and relax. I also didn't want a personality too quiet to make me feel shy/nervous. Rena is like your long lost friend. Easy to talk to, easy to connect with. If you don't want to talk, she doesn't bug you. If you want to chat for the full 2 hours, she'll chat with you. That was exactly what I needed to feel comfortable and relaxed just before walking down the aisle. I 100% recommend Rena and her team and will hire her again for any makeup/hair I need done. 6 stars

It was a pleasure working with Yuko, Kumiko, and Rena for my engagement & wedding hair and makeup. During my trial session, I couldn't decided between a half-up/half-down or an up-do. So Yuko tried both hairstyles on me and we both agreed that...

[Concern #2] I'm Chinese, so I wanted someone who knows how to work with Asian features (e.g. not pile eye shadow on top of my eyelids). Rena nailed it.

I found Rena through Yelp and after seeing all the amazing reviews and photos, and decided to use her hair and makeup services for my engagement photos and wedding. Rena was able to replicate the hairstyle photos I showed her, and made my hair ...
look even prettier than the photos I showed her :D Her makeup skills don't make you look like a different person with heavy caked on makeup. You still look like yourself, but a more elegant version.
My engagement photo shoot was by the water and it was so windy outside. My hair held up so well in the strong wind. Somehow Rena was able to keep the hairstyle looking soft and natural, but tough against the wind! On my wedding day, Rena and her stylist arrived at our venue on time, quickly setup, and got to work! The thermostat was broken in the room where we got ready, so it was freezing cold inside. Rena plugged in a few hair dryers and placed them on the ground to help warm up our feet, and gave me some hot hair rollers to hold to keep my hands warm. Our wedding ceremony was outside on a hot August afternoon but despite the heat and perspiration, my airbrush makeup held up so well! I didn't need to touchup anything all day. She provided me with a little kit with hairspray, extra lip color, and oil blotting paper before she left.
Prices are very fair. Rena was excellent with communication/texting/emails, always super friendly and responds quickly. She even sent me a message the night before the wedding to "sleep well tonight!".
Thank you so much, Rena!

b with listening to what I wanted, looking at sample pictures I had collected, asking a lot of questions to get a feel for what I liked, and made very good suggestions and recommendations. Every time she did something, she would ask me what I thought and if there was anything I would change. I don't wear makeup on a regular basis, so I had asked that I have a more "natural" look, minus making my eyes a little more dramatic. Also, I wasn't too sure about what to do with my hair, but knew that I wanted it up and maybe in a side-bun type style. Not only was she on-point with my makeup, I did not have clown-face or cake-face, but she styled my hair in such a beautiful way that I would have never thought of. She took lots of pictures and notes, and I immediately put my deposit down to have Rena do hair and makeup for myself and MOH for my wedding. Fast forward a year later to The Big Day - Rena was on-site and on-time at the hotel we were getting ready at. She was well-prepared and was able to recreate my hair and makeup exactly as what was done at the trial, plus a few extra touches as suggested by my MOH. Also, my MOH is notoriously picky about her hair and makeup and also has had bad experiences in the past with makeup artists giving her ridiculous "Asian eyes". She was overjoyed with the excellent job that Rena did - her hair was perfect with a classic look, and Rena did an awesome job with enhancing her features with makeup and without the "Asian eyes". I felt and looked beautiful and received so many compliments from the hubby, wedding party, and guests. Everyone was blown away! I look great in all the amateur pictures that were taken, so I can only imagine how good the professional ones look (we'll be getting those soon!). I am so happy with Rena - her pricing is very reasonable and she is beyond talented. Highly recommended!!!

I loved my makeup and it didn't feel heavy on my face at all. My hair is bad with curls staying so Rena pinned them and told me an hour before my photo session to unpin it so it can set. The curls stayed on the whole time! Part of our photos were taken on the beach, I was worried the salt water in the air would mess it up but it didn't
Hair trial appointment with Yuko went really well. She followed the pictures I showed her perfectly. However, it wasn't until later my fiance mentioned that the eye makeup was a little dark, I thought it was a little bit too. When it came to the wedding day, I told Yuko to lighten my eye makeup, no problem!

I have to give it to these ladies, they were on their feet non-stop! I offered them water and food but they were ok too. My bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup.

anyway. While I was happy with the trial, I was blown away with my hair and makeup on my wedding day. I want to clarify that my "happy" and not blown away with the trial was my fault as I am not used to being so detailed with hair and makeup and was a little embarrassed. Rena made me feel extremely comfortable though and by the end of the "trial" I knew that she would be doing my hair and makeup the day of the wedding.
The day of the wedding, she and her assistant were on time and ready to get to work. They did hair and makeup for my mom and sister (bridesmaid) and my mother in law's hair. Everyone was extremely happy with the results (even my mom who is so picky!). I got so many compliments from everyone for both the hair and makeup and I felt absolutely beautiful on my big day!
I searched many makeup artists and got contact information from friends as well, but ultimately the price, quality, and professionalism of Rena were no match for all the others.
As a side, note, I loved that she is upfront about her fees; it saves brides-to-be so much time, especially when one is already spending incredibly amount of time scheduling meetings and calls with other vendors just to get pricing to determine whether they are in budget or not. For someone like me who has long hours at work and had to deal with planning a wedding, it was refreshing to cut through all the nonsense and immediately know whether it was worth contacting or not.

urs for an email response, I think! Very clear and helpful, always addressed all my questions and concerns.
TRIAL: I did a hair and makeup trial. Unfortunately, Rena herself was already booked for my wedding date, so both she and her senior artist, Yuko, came for my trial. Rena observed while Yuko did the work. They came to my house and were very prompt (10 minutes early, actually). It went well and they were very open to playing with different looks.
THE BIG DAY: Again, very prompt arrival to my hotel. Yuko did my hair and makeup as well as makeup for the other girls, and another lovely artist whose name I can't remember came to do the other girls' hair. Both did a fantastic job and were so friendly and fun to talk to. The lady who did the bridesmaids' hair was open to doing whatever intricate styles they wanted, and they turned out great. Yuko remembered every detail from my trial, which I really appreciated (it was 7 months prior!). She was also able to artfully fix my eyebrows, which had been threaded unevenly a few days before the wedding (grrr). I do wish I could have done individual false lashes (rather than the strip) and my hair didn't turn out 100% perfect, but I didn't realize that until a few hours later.
VALUE: One of the most inexpensive companies I could find. The makeup and hair probably gets 4-4.5 stars alone, but it was an exceptional value and I would definitely make the same decision again.

She is on time on the day of our event. All our guests were stunned and cannot recognize us and they are all praising that our hair and make-up artist did a great job. Seriously, I & my daughter looks great and my daughter cannot believe that I am her Mom! Most of our guests were all asking her name. Because of our constant communication prior our event, we get close enough and Loved her sweetness that we invited her to join our memorable event.
I will not hesitate to use her service again and I am proud to recommend her to my friends and anyone that will require a hair & make-up for their event!
Rena, thank you so much for being a part of my daughter's 18th birthday and your hair & make-up creation makes us looked stunning all night! We will continue to keep in touch with you...Warm regards and Take care always---Wish You All the Best & Luck!

I planned my wedding from overseas so I had to search online for many of our vendors. We basically chose our vendors on who got the best reviews, which is how we found Rena for makeup/hair. Rena was awesome from the moment I contacted her. She ...
responded immediately and was so accommodating throughout the entire process. Rena did my hair/makeup and my three bridesmaids' makeup, while her assistant Yuko did my bridesmaids' hair. They did an amazing job. I didn't really know what I wanted for my hair and makeup (even up to the wedding day) and kind of left it up to Rena to do her thing. She just knew what to do and everything turned out great! Both Rena and Yuko were able find the most flattering styles for each of my bridesmaids and me. Our hair and makeup stayed intact from 9am to 10pm.

I hired Rena to do my hair for my wedding last week end. I live in Colorado so I had to find someone based on their website and reviews.....and of course prices I liked! I found Rena and thought the hair styles she had on her site were perfec...
t for what I wanted. We started emailing back and forth and I loved her personality. She always answered my (several) questions promptly and never made me feel like I was bothering her. I sent her a lot of pictures of hair styles I liked so she could get an idea of what I like. On the day of the wedding she showed up early, patiently waited while I dried my hair since I was running late and then got to work. My hair was stunning (I'm still getting compliments on how pretty it was) and stayed in place the entire time. Our wedding was on a private beach where it was slightly windy but I never had to worry about my hair blowing out of place thanks to her expertise! She was gentle with my hair and very quick. I even had a friend from Japan who came for the wedding and he was so excited to speak to someone in his own language. She was great and talked with him while she worked with me - making us all feel so happy! She also did my maid of honor and her hair was beautiful too.
I would definitely recommend Rena!

I needed a make up artist for a wedding I was a part of. Rena was booked, but she said she could book me with one of her senior stylists. So although I had loved all of Rena's looks on her website and on Yelp, I trusted her and booked an appo...
intment with Yuko. Yuko was on time, very kind, and listened to what I wanted. I opted for the airbrush make up and it was so worth it. My make up appointment was at 7:30 am and even by 10:00pm, my make up looked flawless! Yuko also did my hair and my style stayed put through the day and night! I will not hesitate to hire Bright Crystal again! Next up: The Grammy Awards! Thank you Rena and Yuko!

I'm glad to have found Rena on yelp to be my wedding makeup+hair artist. In the past, I had had bad experience with other makeup artists because they made me look like someone else. Rena were able to do a super natural makeup on me. She made me...
look like myself but prettier. Rena also did my hair exactly the way I wanted.
Most importantly, Rena is very responsive. I think this is very important for every bride. On the night before my wedding, I wanted to email Rena and say "see you tomorrow" as a reminder. (Not that I thought she would forget, I was just being a nervous bridezilla and wanted to triple check things.) When I logged into my email account, Rena had already emailed me and said "see you tomorrow! sleep early..." I was impressed by this =)

Rena did my wedding hair and makeup and it was perfect!!!
We did a trial run prior to the actual wedding day. I gave her some thoughts/preferences on the "look" that I was aiming for, and she said okay and did her thing and it turned out so ...
perfect and exactly what I was looking for.
On the day of the wedding, she came on time and got right to work. We had set aside a time frame for the hair and makeup, but she was so efficient that she finished early. I was grateful for that since I would have hated to feel rushed, and it took of f some of the stress for the day.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone that is looking for a hair and/or makeup artist. I know all of my bridesmaids are planning to use her for sure for their wedding!
