What an absolutely WONDERFUL makeup artist, hair stylist, and person. I can not say enough incredible things about her. I was planning this weeding all the way from Colorado, and Jenny made the whole process very easy. She was quick to communicate and always made sure to answer... Read More my questions. I did my trial with her 3 months before the big day, which did not go as well as I had hoped. My hair and skin weren't in the best conditions. Jenny made sure to email me all her suggestions on how to make my wedding day perfect. She took the time to write down how to treat my hair and skin the weeks before the wedding and even the night before the wedding. I took every one of her suggestions, and on my wedding day everything was absolute perfection. My hair lasted all night, I even slept in it and after 48 hours looked amazing. My makeup looked wonderful, and I didn't need to touch up even after 12 hours. Jenny was right on time the day of the wedding, and finished exactly on time to get me down to pictures! Jenny was even wonderful enough to check in a few days after the wedding to make sure everything turned out the way I wanted it to. I can not say enough wonderful things. Highly recommend.

She arrived to the venue early with her full kit and got right to work on me! My makeup lasted all night and always looked like it was applied only minutes before. My hair held up beautifully as well! She left me with a cute little goodie bag of the exact lipstick shade she used, some hairspray, and some makeup wipes. If I ever have a fancy event, I will call Jenny in a heartbeat!

I had a fail trail before Jenny. I was anxious on looking a good make up and hair artist for myself, bridesmaids, MOB,MOG and some attendance. I had my first trail on January (the coldest day of the year). My skin was dehydrated and the make up had a bit of cake. Plus, I was... Read More undecided if I wanted a romantic or a polish look. Jenny was very nice in guiding me and assuring me that the make up will be better in the summer. She also was very patient in giving me her opinion about my hair.

Jenny was very nice to add her, even though, they were working in a tight schedule. My make up and hair were perfect on my wedding. I really really love it. NO COMPLAINS!! She knows what she is doing. The 2nd artist Olivia was perfect too!! My bridal party were gorgeous. *** I always thought that doing make up and hair for Asian people, you need to find Asian stylist. However, I was totally wrong. Jenny and Olivia can handle any type of party. Thank you Jenny and Olivia in handling my bridal party in a good way! :D Nora

The job of the hair and makeup artist on your wedding day is to make you look amazing and feel beautiful. Jenny did this-- twice! I had a two-day wedding (second day was a Chinese banquet) so I had Jenny do the same look for me both days. Her work was consistent and flawless.... Read More Both days I got lots of compliments on how I looked and, more importantly, I felt beautiful. For makeup, Jenny used airbrush foundation on me, which worked out pretty well. On my wedding day, the look was completed at 12 PM for a 6 PM ceremony, with dancing at around 10 PM. It held up the entire night, no oil peeking through or anything (well, up until we started dancing and there was sweat... but no makeup can really withstand the level of dancing my guests and I were doing). I was also impressed with how Jenny did my eyes-- one of my eyes has a deeper crease than the other, but Jenny's skillful use of eyeshadow made them look even. For hair, I did a high bun with curls and some tendrils on the sides. I was impressed because this hair not only looked awesome but was able to withstand the forces of gravity for 12+ hours. I have thick, heavy hair and baby hairs near my forehead so usually when I do updos, they start sagging and looking a little Lion King-ish. Jenny was able to do her magic and it looked beautiful and stayed put. I strongly recommend that any brides who go with Jenny have an idea of what hairdo they want, with front & back pictures. When I did my hair & makeup trial, I came with photos but asked for some changes to be made (without pictures of what those changes would look like). I thought it would be okay since I'm used to going to hair salons where you can offer a vague idea of what you want and the stylists run with it and make you look awesome. But Jenny needed more specifics than that, and because I couldn't provide a better picture of what I wanted, the hairdo look so-so. For my own peace of mind, I requested a second hair-only trial, this time with very specific pictures of exactly what I wanted. My hair turned out great! I was a little nervous because it didn't seem as "finished" (I had some flyaways, over a few hours some curls fell out), but Jenny reassured me that on the day of the wedding, she would secure everything and that it was just a trial. And she was right! She definitely delivered on an awesome hair and makeup look that lasted the entire evening. Justina, her office manager, responds quickly and is good at answering questions or accommodating requests. Rachel did my bridesmaids' hair, which looked awesome -- we went for a low bun with a side braid. Rachel was able to do this hairstyle for all five girls in about 2 hours (!!), and even do this look on one of my bridesmaids who had a short bob. Jenny and her team are amazing. Go with them! You won't regret it.
