She loved what Tina did for her hair and makeup and she looked gorgeous as did everyone in the wedding party. All of the artists really listened to what each girl wanted for their look. They were very professional, punctual and flexible. Also, I think this was a great value compared to other vendors I looked at. I highly recommend them and would use them again for sure!

ase for the crazy schedule we call a wedding. You can see that they are true artists and are very passionate about their work to get everything just right. Most importantly though, they want you to feel comfortable and happy in your skin/hair. Most of my bridesmaids were afraid to have too much makeup on their face, as they and I, usually go barefaced. Nothing was overly done, all of their natural beauty was enhanced and everyone was glowing from their makeover. Maribel and her team will go up and beyond to give you want you want in a look and are always open to suggestions for changes as needed to suit the clients' needs/desires. Maribel and her team's attitude definitely made a difference to starting out the day right, with happy faces and without any complaints. In the end, everyone looked natural and beautiful. I felt beautiful and glowing and ready to start one of the most important days of my life! I loved how my makeup and hairdo turned out and it was able to keep up the whole day, even in the heat! Our whole party received many compliments on both our make up an hair. Most importantly, everyone felt beautiful with the pampering of Maribel and her team which makes a huge difference. I would definitely recommend her to anyone out there who needs exceptional services!

comes with a pleasant and positive attitude that puts you at ease and helps you relax as you prepare for your big day! When I first started looking for hair and makeup for my wedding I did not really know what to look for or even exactly what I wanted. I do not wear a lot of makeup typically and knowing I was going to be having a beach wedding I wanted something that would be natural, but still be beautiful in photos. A friend of mine found Maribel online and I set up a trial. I sent her photos of what I wanted and she was very thorough in our trial meeting going through each picture and asking what I liked about it. She was very detailed and super organized!! The finished product at the trial was incredible and exactly what I was looking for. I was absolutely in love with both my hair and make-up!!! On the day of the wedding, Maribel and her team showed up right on time at the hotel where we were getting ready. It was great to not have to leave the hotel to get hair and makeup and that she was willing to come on location! My Matron of Honor and Bridesmaids were equally impressed with the professionalism and sweet demeanor of the team. Maribel had actually broken her toe just the night before the wedding (which we didn't find out until later and never would have known by the smile on her face!). Despite the pain she must have been in, she was pleasant and came with a great attitude! The hair and makeup I loved from the trial was identically reproduced day of and I felt beautiful!! : ) I highly highly recommend Maribel and her team to any bride or anyone needing hair and make-up services!!! : ) Thank you for being a part of my special day! : )
