I used Ai last month for my wedding makeup and hair. While Ai took notes during the trial, she did not following them closely. She confused my request with another clients. I did not feel that Ai was easy to work with. I also came out with uneven eyebrows and orange colored streaks on my face. My husband noticed during our first look pictures. How embarrassing!

Also Ai charged me an extra $200 fee for transportation! My venue was one hour away, but I still thought that it was ridiculous.

Ai Love Hair responded with the following comments:

We appreciate your comment and are very sorry you did not like Ai’s makeup service.
Most people have an uneven facial structure. Ai always tries to even out the look without too much change from the original, if they request natural-looking makeup.
We do not know what happened with the orange colored streaks and believe they were not there when Ai completed her makeup application. Ai always strives to make sure her clients’ hair and makeup are as the client desires when she finishes her service.
We apologize if you think the transportation fee was expensive. We shared an estimate from a car service company for the cost from Manhattan to your wedding location. Also, we discussed this car service fee cost before your booking and believed you agreed to this transportation cost when you signed your booking. We always offer to use a client's suggested alternate car service.

Ai and her team did a fantastic job for myself (bride), my mom and my 3 bridesmaids. Ai was patient with me during my 2 pre-wedding trials. One the wedding day, her team (3 people in total) was prompt in the morning (6:30am) and worked fast (done in 3.5 hours). Their work was gorgeous and turned all of us into natural-looking but glamorous versions of ourselves. Ai’s hair techniques are especially great! My hair (with fresh flowers) stayed up all day and as was my makeup. Really happy I went with Ai and her team!

Ai and her assistants were amazing, not only I love the way I looked on the wedding day, my two moms and six bridesmaids looked stunning on that day. I am truly please with the services that I received from Ai and grateful for her professionalism and her talent in making an ordinary person into a princess on her wedding day! Thank you so much and I will definitely recommend to friends who are/will get married!

I could not be more happier with hair and makeup services provided by Ai. She did my, my MOH's and my mother's hair and makeup and all of us were extremely happy with the results. I received so many positive comments about my hair and makeup. I wanted my makeup to be not too heavy (more natural) yet still glamorous with my dress, and she did exactly that. My hair was so beautifully done that even my father, who never comments on how my hair is, just loved it and couldn't stop commenting about it. It was easy to schedule both the trial and the wedding day with Ai as she and her assistant were very responsive to e-mails and Ai even called me to follow up to make sure everything was ok. The trial was done in a beautiful hair salon in midtown NY, which was very convenient for me. In addition to her technical skills, she was such a wonderful person to work with; she arrived on time and completed her work on time, and was very professional, responsive, friendly and flexible. I would recommend Ai for anyone seeking beautiful hair and makeup as well as wonderful experience.

Ai and her assistant did my, my mom's, and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup for my wedding day. Ai was great to work with from the trial to the wedding day. I actually changed my hairstyle choice the day of the wedding and Ai was so flexible and was able to capture what I wanted perfectly. I received so many compliments saying my hair and makeup was just right - not too much and not too little. She made me feel and look like a star for my big day. I would recommend Ai without any hesitation for any bride! Thank you, Ai!

Ai was very professional throughout the entire process. She gave me some ideas during the makeup/hair trial and was very helpful in narrowing down the options. The day of, she arrived early to set up, and was also very accommodating when we added hair/makeup for an additional person last-minute. She also stayed later than the original time so that the photographer/videographer could get the shots they needed. Ai was really easy to work with and I was very happy with my hair/makeup for the day!

Some of my friends said they would love to hire Ai on their wedding day after they saw my makeup and hair. Ai was friendly and easy to work with. She arrived 15 min. early on my getting-ready venue so I didn’t need to worry about the time.

Ai also did my mom’s and mother-in-law’s makeup and hair. They both loved her amazing work. Ai created a nature but yet stunning look for me. The make-up was flawless and stayed for a long time. Thank you Ai for the wonderful service. The makeup and hair was definitely memorable on my wedding day.

I would recommend Ai to everyone I know. : )

Ai and her assistant did an amazing job on hair and makeup for me, my 3 bridesmaids, mom and mother-in-law. I did a trial with her prior to booking. For the trial, she did two hair and makeup looks. On the day of the wedding I choose one of the looks and she was flexible in making some changes to the hairstyle. For everyone else, she had them show a photo of the hairstyle they wanted. They did a great job on the hair and the makeup. They showed up on time and worked throughout the morning to get us ready in time. I think her prices are reasonable compared to other vendors and would recommend her to anyone.

Ai did makeup and hair for me and makeup for my mother and mother-in-law for my wedding in June 2014. She did an amazing job - despite me not having time to do a trial before the day of the wedding, she looked at a couple photos I sent her beforehand and gave me beautiful, natural makeup and a hairstyle that lasted all night.

Before the wedding, Ai and her assistant Lori were very responsive via email as well as very flexible (we were originally scheduled to do hair and makeup for all 3 people but had to cancel hair at the last minute due to scheduling conflicts).

The morning of the wedding, Ai showed up right on time and finished right on time. Despite some nerves and lack of specific guidance from the bridal party, Ai was always professional and made sure that everyone ended up with makeup they loved. I would highly recommend her!
