Vanity Belle was such a great team to work with! We worked with Amber, Tanya and Vanessa for my San Diego wedding and they were an amazing team. They arrived early at our hotel for set up and were able to finish our large group in a timely matter, with hair and make up that stayed in place and looked gorgeous all day! They were a great presence to have around during a very stressful morning...(would love to meet any bride that doesn't consider the morning of their wedding an insanely stressful few hours, haha)! It's important to have a team around that you can trust. Jonathan promptly answered my endless emails leading up to the big day and was kind and patient with all of my questions and concerns. Everything went flawlessly and I will definitely be recommending this great team in the future!
Absolutely love the service I got from Vanity Belle! I was a bridesmaid for my sister-in-law and loved their work so I hired them for my own wedding. They did not disappoint in any way. Our make up artist (Diane) and hair stylist (Domenique) was amazing. They took ideas of what we wanted and adjusted it to fit each individual. I absolutely love that they didn't follow the pictures we showed on Pinterest to the T because that demonstrated their professional skills. Everyone came out looking gorgeous and pampered. Highly recommend them for your big day!
I went through vanity belle for my wedding day and it was one of the best decisions. They were definitely one of my favorite vendors throughout the whole process of wedding planning. I had initially contacted a very flakey makeup artist that I was referred to whose work I liked, but it was so hard to get responses out of her. She was incredibly unprofessional and lost a lot of business from me. I stumbled upon vanity belle through Yelp and they were nothing but friendly and professional from the very first phone call. Customer service is everything! On my wedding day, we had Natalie (makeup) and Sam A (hair) for a large group of ladies. These two gems worked so hard from about 9 am to 5 pm. Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous, and all of our hair and makeup lasted through the entire night. Each appointment began and was completed on time (and we had some girls with lots and lots of curly hair). They listen to what it is you want, make changes if you request them, and overall just execute the look that you desire with such precision. I couldn't have imagined a better experience on my wedding day. I highly recommend vanity belle (and especially Natalie and Sam) for anyone looking for the perfect glam!
This beauty bar should be on EVERY ladies top list for hair/make up. The staff is very attentive, the hair and make up stylist are amazing!!! As a bride having one place that does it all was a must on one of my busiest and most important days. My bridesmaids and I were beyond happy and looked/felt so beautiful!!! Wedding ready! 👰🏻
I am so glad I chose Vanity Belle for my wedding day. They were so organized and helpful. They even had a questionnaire to complete and submit pictures of the looks that you want for your special day in preparation for your trial. After my trial I was very impressed and excited to book them. Cynthia did my makeup and Dannielle did my hair for my wedding as well as for my bridal party, the moms and a very special grandma. They were super friendly and fun to get ready with and were especially calming as I of course was nervous that morning. We were all so happy with our makeup and hair. The airbrushing was flawless, our hairstyles stayed in place, looked perfect and lasted all day and night. I would definitely use Vanity Belle again in the future.
Love love love! Victoria, Tanya and Amber were so amazing! They made me feel so special and made sure to take control of all of the hair and make up aspect of the wedding so I did not have to stress over it! I would definitely recommend using them! I can't say enough nice things! Book them today!
I booked Vanity Belle for my wedding in March and I am SO happy I did. They were very communicative from the beginning and easy to work with. There were no hidden fees and we knew exactly what to expect when booking with them. Kaity and Natalie were our hair & makeup artists (bride, bridesmaids, MOB/MOG). They didn't flinch when it came to the early start time (5:00am) and even finished a little early which was great for all the chaos of getting ready for the ceremony. I changed my hair choice after my trial and Kaity made my hair look perfect, and for once in my life my hair even held curls all day and night. Natalie listened to exactly how I, and everyone else, wanted their makeup and we all loved the way it turned out. It really was the best final touch for our wedding attire. When I visit Southern California I'll definitely use them again for any special occasion I have to attend!
I had my bridal trial at the Costa Mesa beauty bar with Kristen and Dominique! They were so welcoming from the start and really listened to my wedding vision. I had my bridal shower that same day and they went out of their way to make me feel so pampered as I enjoyed a mimosa. I got so many compliments on my look and I can't wait to use them for my wedding day!
The girls were absolutely wonderful for our hair and makeup. We even had a mix up with the schedule but they handled it without any stress and we were all ready on time. Everyone looked so beautiful. I had a Disney castle photo shoot the following morning after the wedding at 5am, and my hair and makeup lasted me all during the night of dancing and then a few hours of sleep, lol. I did not touch up at all for the shoot! Amazing!!!
I first found Vanity Belle Beauty Boutique when I heard about a wedding show they were having at the boutique with other vendors. My mom and I went and had such a great time that we decided to get bridal hair and makeup trials done there. We absolutely loved the way our hair and makeup came out at our trial that we decided to book Vanity Belle for my wedding! Kat did the hair for my wedding and Diane did the makeup. They are both excellent at their jobs and are really sweet and fun to talk to! I was so happy with how everyone's hair and makeup turned out for the wedding! The girls at Vanity Belle are really good at making you feel like a million bucks when you walk out of there! I love the place so much that I get my hair dyed there now and go there whenever I need to be pampered or get my makeup/hair done for events. Definitely check this place out!
Dannielle from Vanity Belle did me and my bridesmaids' hair for my wedding, and it could not have been more perfect. She was super personable and friendly, too, which made hanging out with her all day fun! I'm from out of town, but they were kind enough to schedule my trial run the morning before the wedding at 8am before the studio normally opens. The little studio is super cute, and I'm sad I don't live in La Jolla because I would love to go more often! Dannielle was very creative and did a great work product, listening to what I or each girl wanted and tweaking the result if there was any input. We were dealing with the bridal quite not being ready on time in the morning so we were running late all day, but Dannielle gained back her time and had time to do touch ups at the end. She did a wonderful job, and I could not be more pleased. Thank you Dannielle!
I absolutely loved working with Kat & Crystal on my wedding day! All of my bridesmaids, my flower girls and my makeup and hair were stunning. I loved how everything turned out, and they completely grasped my vision for my hair and makeup on my wedding day. They are so fun to work with, and I would highly recommend them! Jonathan is very organized and communicates quickly to whatever you may need. Vanity Belle is great! Thanks again Vanity Belle!
Vanity Belle is just AMAZING!!!!! From my first impression of their beautiful store to their makeup artists I loved them! I had Diane for my makeup trial and she was so friendly and easy to talk to and understood what my vision was for my makeup and look! I booked them right away after that for myself and all of my bridesmaids. Once I got a veil for my dress I booked Diane for my bridal shower makeup and told her that I wasn't sure about going with the same look for the wedding now, she agreed and came up with an amazing romantic look for wedding day! On wedding day she was there early and was beyond amazing and the second artist Raven was so sweet! The girls worked fast and everything came out flawless! Diane even did a tattoo cover up on my mother in law and everyone was shocked!! It came out so good no one could tell she had a tattoo!!!! Will definitely be booking Diane and Raven again :)
After my previous stylist flaked on me, Vanity Bell took great care of me last minute. They are treat you professionally, and Johnathan, the co-owner is very kind. All expectations are clearly laid out. Kat did my hair and makeup and she felt like part of the family at the end of the day!
Crystal (Makeup) and Brittany(Hair) were awesome! I could not be happier with my hair and makeup. They are highly professional and a pleasure to work with. Pictures came out great and I got many compliments for my hair and makeup. So happy I decided to go with Vanity Belle!
Absolutely AmazingReviewed on 6/16/2014 Nadia R
After a horrible trail I turned to Yelp and The Knot for local vendors who could help me 12 weeks before the wedding. I came across Vanity Belle and emailed them pictures of what had my hair and make up looked like after the terrible trail. The next day I received a phone call from Jonathan the owner and he genuinely wanted to help me and forget about the bad experience. I booked a trail and loved that the 2 girls working with me were so attentive and detail oriented. I left happy and relieved. The day of the wedding the team arrived on time and stuck pretty close to timeline for that day. I looked and felt absolutely gorgeous even after making adjustments to make up I had selected from the trail. My bridesmaids also looked stunning and loved the quality of there work. They are a bit on the pricey side but hey you get what you pay for. Thank you Vanity Belle and your wonderful team.
WonderfulReviewed on 5/28/2014 Katie H
I worked with Lauren and she was amazing. My makeup was absolutely stunning!! She made me look and feel like a million dollars! The makeup photographed so well and she was just so pleasant to work with. Vanity Belle is a little on the expensive end, but trust me, it was totally worth it!
LOVED my hair & makeup!Reviewed on 9/17/2013 Amanda M
Leah and Sam are so amazing! I did a bridal hair and makeup trial back in February and they listened to everything I wanted and offered suggestions to make my vision a reality. My hair and makeup looked better than I was expected and totally wanted to cry when I saw what a great job these girls had done. They are so upbeat and really bring a lot of fun energy. All emails/calls/texts are responded to very quickly. I did the trial at their studio in Costa Mesa (which is so cute btw) but they can come to you as well. These girls are fun, super professional, and great at what they do...don't hesitate to call them! On the wedding day they arrived on time (early even!) and made sure everyone had enough time to get the attention they needed. I LOVED my hair and makeup, and it kept all night. Our wedding & reception was outside (in August) and when I started to sweat a little on my forehead, my friend told me I even looked pretty while sweating, the makeup was that good lol. They made my Mom feel so beautiful on a day that was equally as important to her, and for that I am eternally grateful! Extremely professional and skilled, and they were SO MUCH FUN to work with! Thanks again ladies!
Truly awesome Artists at Affordable Rates! And that's coming from someone who is a perfectionist!Reviewed on 8/15/2013 Dana Rose E
I used them for my wedding a little over a week ago. Let me start by saying that I myself do hair and makeup as a side job and are very particular about my makeup and hair. My friends were actually surprised that I was going to have mine done by someone other than my self. I searched for my vendors early on back in February. My requirements were to find a reasonable priced company as I didn't want my bridesmaids paying a lot (they too do their own makeup pretty well) and a company that doesn't make you look too white in pictures or like you don't have anything on at all. I've been in many weddings where I had to re-do or touch up my makeup or hair. Their quick response time, affordable rates, pictures on their websites and the link they have to photographer Wendy Kathleen Photography were the reasons why I ended up booking with them. Wendy had a deal where she would deduct the price of my hair and makeup from my photography package. Awesome deal! (Wendy is amazing too. Check out my review on her coming soon). I did 2 trials with them because I booked so early that I changed my mind on the looks I wanted. I had Victoria and Sarah (Amanda came the day of to do some of the BM's). They are all so awesome and fun! They listen to what you want and provide their thoughts on what they would recommend. They keep it real and are willing to try different things if you're not satisfied. My first trial was a half up do and the second was an all up volumized do. My fiance later told me he wanted it half up. I was thinking great, I just did my trial twice and now he tells me. Because Victoria and Sarah made me feel so comfortable and I saw first hand how good they were I wasn't worried and knew they'd be able to create the looks I wanted for my big day. The wedding was finally here. They arrived earlier than scheduled which was good. I was actually nervous for the VB team given how picky my friends are with their hair and makeup (they're like me!). Everyone was completely satisfied with their makeup and blown away on how good it came out. I was so happy to see and hear their reactions when they were done! I did have some girls want to re-do their hair a few times and Sarah and Amanda were actually good sports about it. I did airbrush which I would recommend as the look comes out great in the professional pics. On another note- they are very honest as well. I had to adjust the # of hair and makeup services and Victoria realized that she overcharged me for 1 service and immediately emailed me to let me know and she mailed me a refund check. Not something many would do. Everything about my experience with them was awesome and I would def recommend them to anyone. Remember, that's coming from a perfectionist!
Amazing!Reviewed on 7/24/2013 Kelly E
Vanity Belle is extremely professional - they always respond to emails immediately, and they are highly organized. Sam did our hair and Diane did our makeup - both ladies were extremely friendly and provided a high level of service. We couldn't have asked for more!
Love them!Reviewed on 4/01/2013 Cindy G
A couple of weeks before the wedding, Vanity Belle contacted me to tell me that the person who I had a trial make up run with was no longer with the company. I didn't have time to do another trial run, so I was a bit nervous, but everything turned out great! Sammie & Leah were my hair & make up artists for the big day. They came to Temecula (bright and early) and set up in my hotel room. They were highly accommodating to everyone's hair and make up requests! Poor Sammie had burned two of her fingers on a curling iron but still pushed to come in and work. Leah was much more accommodating to my requests than the person who was originally assigned to me, and my makeup turned out great! Thanks, girls! =)
These girls are great! :)Reviewed on 2/23/2013 Corinne L
Leah (makeup) and Sarah (hair) did an AWESOME job for my wedding last weekend! They are super friendly, easy to talk to, and professional. The girls and I felt so beautiful all night. I definitely recommend Vanity Belle! :)
Ask for Leah and Sarah!Reviewed on 2/05/2013 Nicole A
When doing all the preparations for our wedding, hiring a hair and makeup artist was the last thing on my mind. I email at least 10 other makeup artists in the Orange County and Inland Empire, but Vanity Belle's prompt and professional response impressed me the most. Some of the other artists I contacted were either rude or unprofessional (One thing that you definitely not want on the day of your wedding). After comparing prices and browsing through some of the other artists' portfolios, it was Vanity Belle's professionalism, prompt response, and overall style that made choose them over the others. There is nothing more frustrating to a bride then having to wait for answer (ladies, you know what I'm talking about). But what really sealed the deal and made me ABSOLUTELY confident in Vanity Belle was their artists' personalities. During my trial, Leah and Sarah were absolutely lovley, amiable, fun, and energetic (just the right vibe you want to have on the day of your wedding). Leah and Sarah were very quick to respond and were absolutely awesome. After my bridal trial, Leah sent me over a timeline of makeup/hair. I had 3 bridesmaids and 1 junior bridesmaid (45 minutes each). Leah and Sarah arrived early to set up and cracked me and my bridesmaids up the whole morning (which I loved). These are the girls you definitely want to have around (they're true keepers), and having them around to make you and bridesmaids laugh definitely shows in the pictures. When you're having a good time, it really shows. Not only did my make-up last ALL morning, it pulled a "Lionel Richie" and lasted all night long as well. (Ceremony started at 10am, reception ended at 11pm). Getting airbrushed (extra $10) was definitely worth it. Not to mention my hair was BANGING too! I was a little worried that it would get frizzy from the rain and cold, but it stayed true to form without looking like a helmet. I would definitely RECOMMEND Leah and Sarah from Vanity Belle!They should be your 1st choice.
Beautiful workReviewed on 10/18/2012 Carla C
Vanity Belle did an amazing job doing the hair and makeup for my bridal party and I. I was referred to Vanity Belle by a co-worker. I set up a makeup and hair trial with Victoria the owner and stylist for the company, whereI was able to show her pictures and let her know what I wanted. I loved my hair and makeup! I loved her input on makeup and hair ideas, eyelashes were even included. The team of stylists arrived on time and were very friendly and professional.
