I like to consider myself a pragmatic, relatively frugal person, and was looking around for cheap options for hair and makeup a month before my actual wedding. I scheduled a couple trial runs at a few different places, and on a whim, scheduled a trial run with Yin to get a feel... Read More for what a pricier hair and makeup run would be like. Let me say this very clearly. For hair and makeup, you ABSOLUTELY get what you pay for. Every other trial run was a complete disaster. After a trial run at a relatively well known salon, my mom said I looked like a peasant lady. The tone all changed when I did my trial run at Yin Tom Studios. Everything was PERFECT. I have a lot of hair, and it's extremely thick. Most salons throw up their hands, and just try to pin it all in a blob. Yin was an expert, and made my hair look like an ethereal globe. Yin is also special with the fact that she uses airbrush makeup, which sprays like a dream and makes you look completely natural and angelic. So obviously I hired her immediately to do my hair and makeup for my actual wedding. Even though Yin may be slightly pricier than most large-chain salons, there is definitely a reason why. She is really, truly, a pro. She has been in this business for years, went to school for hair and makeup, and really knows her stuff. I cannot recommend her enough. She is also super sweet and kind, which is just frosting on top of a already perfect cake. Schedule a trial run with her. You will definitely not regret it.

Yin was amazing! She was very responsive in her communications and easy to talk to. When I met her for the hair and makeup trial, I brought few photos of what I was looking for and she knew immediately how to get it done. I had her for hair and makeup on my wedding day, as well... Read More as hair for my 5 bridesmaids. She works quickly and her quality is amazing! Each bridesmaid showed her a photo of the hair that they wanted, and she was able to pull it off with all sort of styles and hair types. She is truly a gifted hair and makeup artist, and I loved how I looked on my wedding day, - I don't know if I'll ever look so good again :) I highly recommend using Yin Tom for a hair and makeup artist!

Where to begin. Yin is awesome. I normally don't wear much makeup and she knew the right middle ground to make sure I looked like a bride but not like a kid pretending to wear makeup. I looked like myself but a more impressive version. She also did my hair which I cannot rave... Read More enough about. My friends of different styles and races also got services done and they all were so happy with Yin's work and personality. I wish I could have her so my hair and makeup everyday!

Yin Tom is amazing! Before my bridal consultation, she really took the time to find out exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. She gave me the exact look I was hoping for at the trial run and the wedding and gave me a custom touch up kit for the rest of the night. I didn’t end... Read More up using it because the makeup she put on before the wedding stayed perfect throughout the evening. She did a fantastic job with my mom and 3 bridesmaids; everyone looked beautiful. In addition to being a consummate professional who always responds to email quickly, comes to appointments early, and does fabulous work, Yin is delightful to be around! We loved hanging out with her while we were all getting ready. I absolutely recommend Yin Tom!

I can't say enough about how much I love Yin Tom and her work! I found Yin very late in the wedding planning process due to an unpleasant experience I had with another makeup artist. Then I got Yin's name from a friend who worked with Yin at her recent wedding and that was... Read More exactly one month before my wedding date. At that point I was upset, worried, and doubtful that I will ever find someone I like and trust. But finding Yin changed everything! I absolutely agree with another post that Yin is the best! She not only knows her stuff, but she is such a pleasure to work with. She is warm, personable, and passionate about her work! Wedding planning is often very stressful, so it's even more important to find pros who can communicate and listen to your needs and be flexible (rather than imposing their own ideas or preference on you). Yin is exactly like that. She is the whole package! Not only she did a great job on my makeup and hair, my three bridesmaids' hair and makeup, she saved my then fiance's life (literally). It was a very windy day by the ocean, thanks to Yin and her skills, my now husband didn't have to worry about messy hair on our big day. But to me what's even more impressive, Yin is like a great conductor for a symphony. She is skilled, organized, on point, and had everything under control. She got to the site early, kept everyone in check throughout the day, pulled us aside to finish up makeup/hair when needed (we had to do rehearsal the day of and it took longer than expected). After the trial, I sent her a couple comments, she was able to adapt and made changes on the day of. Knowing there would be a change, she got there early and built in extra time than originally planned. Without her, we wouldn't be ready in time for the wedding. The best compliments I received on our big day were: wow, you look beautiful and you look like you! That speaks to Yin's ability to work and accentuate your natural beauty like another comment put it! You really can't go wrong with Yin!

Yin was my hair and makeup artist for my wedding in July. She is very talented, professional and personable. I scheduled a make-up trial with her a few months prior to the wedding. She provided some tips to prepare for the trial in advance. While we were at the trial, she... Read More quickly learned my style and was able to create a look that I like. She was also able to provide some great suggestions on hair pieces I should get to match the look. On the wedding day, Yin did hair and makeup for my bridesmaids, my mother, and myself.

I would not hesitate to recommend Yin as your makeup artist. She is absolutely amazing to work with and she will make sure you look gorgeous with her talent!

Yin is very professional and friendly! I came to her 2 weeks prior to my wedding, and I was so lucky to have her for a makeup trial and eventually the actual day makeup and hair!

Overal, I am very happy with her service and working style!

We just had our wedding last week and I cannot thank Yin enough for the amazing looks she created for me, my moms and the bridal party! Starting from the beginning during my bridal style trial, Yin was very attentive and fun to work with. She gave good advice when we are... Read More deciding on my wedding day look and hair style. I am not the kind of girl that put on a lot of make up daily and she helps to make me feel comfortable in a more natural wedding look.

On the wedding day, I decided to go with a different hairstyle from the one we decided on during the trial. Yin was very accommodating without any complaints and created the exact looks from the pictures I gave her. She also did a great job on all my bridesmaids' makeups and everyone are happy with their looks. She also makes sure we are on schedule and keep track on time so we would not be late for our own wedding.
