Regina is AMAZING! Easy to work with, fun to be around and a truely talented professional. I booked Regina for my nuptials in September 2017, which I was planning from 1,500 miles away. She was easy to coordinate with, flexible on squeezing in a trial, and understood exactly... Read More what I wanted even when I didn't know how to explain it. I wanted to look beautiful but still look like myself, and not too overdone. I had no reason to worry - She created the perfect look with ease. She came out to my venue day-of, brought an assistant who was also fab, and spent the whole day glamming up me, my bridesmaids and my mother. She was able to create perfect, flawless looks on us all that were still individual - and lasted all night and into the wee hours! She even did extensions for me, which I highly recommend! (If you knew me, you would never in a million years think that I would get extensions - she is THAT good at what she does). Book her now before someone else does, you won't regret it!

i booked regina for my wedding in june '16 and i am so happy that i did! she is clearly a talented hair and makeup artist- from the minute i walked in for my consultation i felt like she understood my vision for how i wanted to look on my big day. then started having doubts... Read More about my original plan (hair down in the summer) and she was really accommodating about fitting me in last minute to try something different! she did hair and makeup for me, my mom and 4 out of 5 girls in the bridal party. there were some girls who are really natural and almost never wear makeup and other who go full glam every day; girls with thick hair down to their butts and a girl with really short thin hair, and EVERYONE was pleased with how they looked. regina and the makeup artist she brought (i forget her name- sorry!) did a great job of tailoring the hair and makeup styles to everyone's preference. also regina is just a nice person who is chill and brought a good vibe to the getting ready. she really knows what she's doing and i would highly recommend her for any bride who wants her and her girls to feel beautiful!

First off, when I called to inquire about onsite wedding hair and makeup, Regina answered with an comforting, pleasant tone of voice and answered my questions and explained their services without hesitation. I called about a dozen places and some people were curt, left you on... Read More hold for over 5 minutes, seemed annoyed, took a couple days to respond, or didn't respond at all. Going with Faking It Salon was an easy decision to make and Regina is even more pleasant in person. I had very little sleep, arrived late, had other people's kids getting in their space while they worked and they were so easy going and friendly still. My sisters, Mom, Mother-In-Law, nieces and friends all raved about how awesome they were. Everyone looked great. Regina put my hair up in Beehive as I requested, gave me false lashes, and airbrushed our makeup. My hair stayed perfect all night (90 percent of which was spent on the dance floor) and many complements were received on our hair and makeup. They were great conversationalists and were okay with me not having energy to say much. They made the beginning part of the day so much better than I could have imagined; I highly recommend their services to anyone.
