Leslie Fair is amazing at wedding hair and makeup. She did bridal hair and makeup, bridesmaid hair and make up and even my mom's makeup. She comes to your location and sets up her equipment and is just at home styling you on location. She sh...
owed up right on time (maybe a little early), set up all her gear and was ready to go with the heated curlers, make up and everything.
She is also just a real pleasure to work with and have around as you are preparing for your big day. She's relaxed, but professional, and just has a great attitude to help relax you as she's doing your styling.
A few things to note:
--They don't have the fastest response time since they're always busy but keep trying and they will respond: phone, email, website. Don't submit an email and sit for 2 months wondering if she's available. It's worth a follow up call or something...and now I'm not saying to be a pest, but it's worth following up. And if you want a more direct answer, it might be worth picking up the phone. Yes, get off email and try the old fashioned way of having a real conversation. You can try calling Leslie or Mark--both are very easy to work with. Get the details worked out, and get your deposit over to her to secure the date and time. And don't just give her a rough estimate--let her know, I need you between 10 and 2 to do XYZ--are you available? And then book it! I did read in another review sometimes she has a number of weddings in a day--might be worth asking about that.
--They take credit card numbers over the phone and will process you an email receipt promptly so you don't have to worry about payment on the day of
--BRING PHOTOS of what you like and what you don't like. The more you communicate with Leslie the more you'll get what you want. For my trial, I brought in magazine photos of what I liked and what I didn't and she was right on. We adjusted slightly from the trial but it was exactly what I had envisioned. And the hair and makeup lasted 12+ hours!
--BOOK EARLY. I got lucky that she was still available but I think she books up very quickly.
--Her studio is now in Kapahulu: 619 Kapahulu Ave #207
I'm kind of sad it's all done because Leslie did an amazing job. I'd hire her again in an instant.
