We used Art Occasions for our wedding in January 2014. Rachanee did our hair and Linda did our makeup (two brides). We first met with them for a trial a week before the wedding, and we were nervous after having gone through a trial that was very disappointing. We were on a tight budget and couldn’t afford the vendors who had been recommended to us. The first trial was with the most “budget” of our options, and it’s often true that you get what you pay for. Well, Art Occasions was only slightly more expensive than the first place we tried, but the quality was so much better. Rachanee and Linda were great! They were professional, friendly, flexible and efficient, and they listened to our requests. They worked with us to get our looks just right. We both appreciated that they focused on hair and makeup rather than socializing with us.

On our wedding day, they had to arrive very early as there were bridesmaids and mothers to work on as well. They were able to accommodate an extra hair and makeup and still finish everyone’s services almost exactly on time. I can’t even count how many compliments we got on the hair and makeup. They are professionals at what they do. Rachanee really understands how to translate a picture into reality on hair, and Linda is a true makeup artist. They remembered what we had discussed at the trial and made the appropriate adjustments. Everyone who had services was extremely pleased. I would not hesitate to recommend Art Occasions to any prospective brides in the area. The prices are reasonable (for the industry) and the service and product are excellent. Big thanks to Rachanee and Linda for making us look so good on our big day!

I am a professional fashion/wedding photographer. I've worked with Art Occasions many times, Rachanee impressed me in many different ways. If you look for professional and trustful makeup & hairstylist for your wedding,Art Occasions is the best choice.

First, Her makeup and hairstyle skill is absolutely awesome. When we plan to do fashion shoots, we have high standard for each concept, Rachanee always delivers the best makeup style. Second, her great personality wins everybody, models love to work with her. Third, she is very responsible and reliable, she is someone you can count on.

I worked with different wedding makeup & hair stylists, they are all good, but Rachanee is the best! I will suggest her to every of my friend who needs bridal makeup& hair service.

I will definitely recommend Art Occasions to all my engaged friends. Rachanee did my hair and makeup for my wedding as well as my mothers hair. She was extremely professional and artistic. I did a trial at her home studio a few months prior and she brought my vision to life. She had lots of suggestions and references to use so we established a clear picture of what I was looking for before she even got started. She created a beautiful, unique updo and lovely airbrushed makeup. On my wedding day, she arrived on time at my hotel and finished my hair, makeup, and mothers hair by the time we had agreed on. The look lasted all night and photographed beautifully. I was so happy with the finished result. Thanks again Rachanee!!

Rachanee did a great job on my hair and makeup for my 9/24/11 wedding. I had my trial with her 2 months before the wedding and was extremely pleased with the result. I brought a ton of pictures to show her what I had in mind for both hair and makeup. I wasn't sure that my desired hairstyle would even work with the texture and length of my hair but Rachanee told me she could do it. She spent almost 3 hours with me at the trial, making sure everything was perfect. It was one of the most relaxing times of the whole 8 months of wedding planning! I opted for the airbrushed makeup and I loved it. I still looked like myself but she was great at enhancing my natural features. At the end of the trial, Rachanee took some photos to remember exactly how I wanted everything for my wedding day and emailed them to me.

On the day of the wedding, Rachanee arrived on-time with her assistant to my mom's house, where my bridesmaids and I were getting ready. In addition to my hair and makeup, Rachanee and her assistant, Kimberly, also did the hair and makeup for my mom, cousin and one of my bridesmaids. They did a great job on everyone. Rachanee made sure we stuck to the timeline and finished promptly on time and both my hair and makeup lasted all day (12 hours). In addition to being great at what she does, Rachanee is also an extremely sweet person! I definitely recommend her to make you look and feel beautiful on your wedding day!

Rachanee did my hair for my best friend's wedding I was in recently and I could not give her high enough praises. She was able to take verbal ideas from both the bride and I, without any pictures, and she was able to create exactly what we were both imagining. Not only is her talent beyond anything I have ever experienced, Rachanee is very kind, warm and personable. She fit right in with our zany group of women and I felt she really cared about making the bride and bridesmaids have the best day ever. We all got so many compliments on our looks and never before has anyone been able to make my limp, thin blond hair look smooth, sleek and with volume. Now if only I could get her to move to Washington!

Rachanee and the team she provided for hair and makeup for my wedding were amazing. Rachanee spent a great deal of time making sure my makeup and hair were perfect for the day and the other makeup gal and hair gal she brought were equally as great. All my bridesmaids as well as myself had a great time and were extremely pleased with the end result. It was so great having someone so reliable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Rachanee!

I planned my wedding in California remotely from Asia and I booked Rachanee without having the trial first given I wasn't able to make it to California until a few days before the actual wedding. She turned out to be two of the best wedding vendors (the other being my rehearsal dinner place) that I have selected, and I was really thankful and lucky that I have found someone like her to help me and my bridal party for the make-up and hairstyle. I didn't have much clue about what I wanted except something that's natural, reflective of myself, and goes well with my gown. She was so amazing on the trial day and the wedding day itself and was able to come up with a look that I/everyone loved! I had artists done my make up and hair on a few other formal occasions before and I think Rachanee is the best so far. She was really professional throughout and i really enjoyed working with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Rachanee is an excellent hair and make-up artist. She was professional, but also, flexible and personable. I will definitely hire her again for my next special occasion and highly recommend her service to everyone.

I had 7 hour pre-wedding photo shoot. She did my initial hair and makeup in the morning and changed my hair styles about 5 times during the photo shoot.

As every bride experienced before, I couldn't choose between long hair styles and updo hair styles, so I decided to have both. I researched a lot of hair/makeup artists in the bay area. I contacted pretty much all artists from http://theknot.com and http://yelp.com. I was looking for someone who could do the natural makeup and variety of hair styles. Moreover, even tho it was 7 hours, considering driving 6 different places in SF, changing clothes, walking and taking pictures, the time was very tight. Therefore, I needed someone who know the styles and practice them beforehand, so it can be done as fast as possible. After getting quotes and reviewing each artists' portfolios, I finally chose Rachanee.

I emailed her a bunch of photos of the hair and makeup styles I like. During our trial, she had them printed out already and I could see she was prepared. she pretty much knew what I liked and did a good job. We timed how long it took to do one hair style to do the next. She took each pictures, so she could practice later. Of course, there were times that I didn't like the style. I told her my concerns, and she listened to me and changed it until I was satisfied. She was a very hard worker.

Lastly, as I mentioned previously, I got a lot of quotes from different artists, and her rate was one of the most reasonable price considering their experiences. Also, FYI, I liked pictures from yelp than her website for some reason, so make sure to check out the pictures from yelp. I hope this helps!!

Rachanee was wonderful and extremely professional. Her and her assistants (who were also great) did make-up and hair for me and six bridesmaids in a timely fashion for my wedding. I was even late due to last-minute errands and she still got us all done an hour before the ceremony. I was initially hesitant about hiring someone to do hair and make-up because of the cost but it was definitely worth it as it made the wedding significantly less stressful. We all felt confident, and received many compliments. I would recommend Art Occasions to anyone in the area who wants a group of stylists who make you look great and natural. There are other wedding vendors I used that I regret but she was not one of them.

Now that everything is slowing down, I have time to rate her and I definitely recommend her! Rachanee service, responsiveness, flexibility, and professionalism were great! She did my hair and makeup. The makeup stayed on the whole day even when I cried during my ceremony. No touch up needed! She even gave me a lipliner pencil just in case I needed it. I would totally use her again!!!

Rachanee is very professional but very easy to deal with. She's a sweet person and she listens to what you need. I sent her pictures and videos and she'll just do her best to make you happy.
Thank you Rachanee for sharing your talent with us. I know we'll be looking at our wedding pictures for the rest of our lives and I'll definitely remember you.

Rachanee and her team were awesome. She's so accommodating and such a sweetheart. She knows how to make you look and feel beautiful. I had so many comments that my makeup was amazing, that my natural features were beautifully enhanced. Despite some miscommunication with the wedding coordinator on my big day, she still remained a sweetheart and calmed my nerves when I was starting to feel the bridezilla in me come out when things were going as planned. She was one of the highlights of my wedding and I could not be happier. She's just perfect. I'm so happy I found her.

My bridesmaids makeup and hair were done by her team, Nancy and Dzime, who were awesome too. The girls looked so beautiful and glamorous. I was just amazed at how wonderful and perfect everything turned out. Just really happy overall.

Rachanee is a consumate professional, and made what can be a stressful day (getting married) for many very comfortable and relaxing.

Rachanee at Art Occassions is the sweetest vendor you will ever meet. She is extremely flexible, a great value, and VERY talented. I first did a make up and hair trial. Definitely do the trial if you want to decide on your perfect look. Rachanee did my hair and makeup in several ways, took photos for me, and then I was able to decide which I liked the best. All the looks were natural and beautiful - it was difficult to choose!

On the wedding day, Rachanee came with one assistant. They were able to do hair for 5 bridesmaids, hair and makeup for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom, and hair and makeup for the bride. We actually were ready earlier than planned, so we girls were able to relax and drink champagne before the wedding. Everyone was extremely happy with their hair and makeup. One of my bridesmaids (who had recently gotten married) commented that she wished Rachanee had been there to do bridal hair at her wedding because she liked her hair so much better.

If that's not good enough, at the end of the whole, long, wedding night, with lots of dancing, all of our hair and makeup still looked fresh and perfect. My wedding coordinator couldn't believe how great everyone looked. We didn't need a touch up all night (besides some lip gloss after dinner).

Thank you to Rachanee. I highly recommend her to all brides!

Rachanee made my wedding day experience wonderful. I had been going to her for my pre-wedding trials for hair/make-up. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about my needs for my day. On the actual day of, she knew that with so many women to work on (6 bridesmaids and 1 mother-in-law) that she would need back-up. There were two other assistants to help with hair and make-up. My bridesmaids looked gorgeous and the experience was fun. My mother saw how beautiful the women looked and ended up getting her make-up done as well! My make-up felt light on my skin and was "just right" on the color. My hair had gone through some changes from curls to a twist on the day of. The style was simple, yet modern and elegant at the same time. It ended up feeling like me and not like other styles I always saw at weddings/magazines. Rachanee worked hard to work with our schedule in time/location. It was an experience that every woman getting married should have.

Rachanee did my bridal hair and makeup and she did a fantastic job! My makeup looked beautiful and felt very natural. I was worried that I would need some touch-ups, but even after a 12 hour day, no touch-ups necessary! My hair was pinned up in long curls, and the curls stayed in place all day, despite it being a very windy day. At the end of the night, my hair was still neat and tidy.

Looking back at photos, I am extremely happy with the end result. I never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day, and it was all thanks to Rachanee. Not only is she talented, she is also a pleasure to work with. She is very professional, patient, and pays attention to your inputs. I highly recommend Rachanee to anyone!

I just had my wedding and I was very happy with working with her all the time.
She does listen to you and respect your style.
My first trial went OK, but I was not really happy about the bumps on my cheek from rubbing air blush. So I told her which I don't like about and I asked her to do the air blush different way on my wedding day. Then she offered me a second trial just for foundation. It was better than first time, but my all facial hair caught the air blush. She suggested me a threading. So I did, it was amazing how things worked out.
Also I got so many compliments about my wedding hair. Everyone liked it and of course I loved it too.
Rachanee is very easy to work with and very quick response too!

My wedding coordinator recommended Rachanee to me when I was looking for a hair/make up artist. I went in for my trial and shared with her my vision of what I wanted to look like for my wedding day. Rachanee totally understood my ideas and spent a good deal of time on my hair/makeup during the trial.

On the day of my wedding, she brought an assistant to help with my BM�s hair and make up. They both worked very hard and got everyone done in a timely manner. Throughout the day, everyone complimented me on how elegant I looked. Also, my hair was in place for the whole day. There was not a single strand of hair out of place!

Rachanee is not only a skilled artist, she is a warm and kind person. On the day of, you want to surround yourself with people who will keep you calm and positive � Rachanee did just that for me. She�s extremely professional and personal. You will not be disappointed.

Rachanee was wonderful to work with - I would highly recommend her! I chose her to work on my hair and make-up for my wedding in June 2009. I actually ended up doing a few trials with her because I was indecisive on hair styles. She was very patient with me and very accommodating to my schedule and requests. On the day of the wedding, her work was even better than the trial and she spent a lot of time making sure that I liked the makeup and hair. My husband felt it looked very natural and loved it, which was a great compliment since he generally likes me without any makeup at all. I received a lot of compliments and never felt better!

I also asked her to do my bridesmaids' hair. She brought an assistant with her the day of because I had 6 bridesmaids. I was a bit anxious about her assistant because I had never met her prior or seen her work. However, they both did a wonderful job and my bridesmaids' hair looked amazing! In fact, my cousin has hair that never keeps their curls, but somehow Rachanee and her assistant made it so that her curls actually stayed the whole night! I was truly amazed! :)

I had to plan my bay area wedding from Los Angeles so had to select out of town vendors purely from recommendations on the web! It was a little nerve wracking, but it turned out so well! Rachanee met with me in my hotel room just 2 days before the wedding for my trial run (only time that worked for me!). I gave her pretty vague instructions--pretty, natural-medium makeup that covers/lasts all day and a soft up-do hairstyle. She showed me some pictures from her books/magazines to find things I liked and then ran with it! It turned out so great! On the day of the wedding she met in my hotel room and got me and my maid of honor ready in plenty of time...she really did a fantastic job on both of us. We got so many compliments and felt great all night. We didn't have to touch up our makeup once! I highly recommend Rachanee and Art Occasions for their wonderful work!

I absolutely loved Rachanee’s work on my hair and make-up (bridesmaid) and my best friend’s hair (bride) and make-up for my friend’s wedding. Rachanee is patient and sweet and genuinely listens to what you want to look like. It was so nice to have a hair and make-up artist that was friendly and calm on the big day. She was able to perfectly recreate a hairstyle I picked out from a magazine and she adjusted the bride’s hair until it was EXACTLY what she wanted. Our makeup looked natural and not overdone. She did a great job managing time and getting both of us ready to go with hair and make-up done just in time to take pre-wedding pictures. I highly recommend Rachanee to anyone, particularly brides and bridal parties. Having Rachanee around will add to your day and you will look completely beautiful! Thanks Rachanee!!

Ratchanee is a great hair and make up artist! She listens to you and gives you some choices suiting your styles. She will make sure that you walk out the door with your beautiful smile. I usually have a hard time finding a perfect style that goes with my round face, but she helps me with her experience and wouldn't stop trying different style until you are happy. I love the way she looks after every single things through my hair and make up. I would say, let's try her! she's perfect!

I HIGHLY recommend Art Occasions for bridal hair and make-up, hence the 5 stars! Rachanee and her team are personable and professional. I never had to worry about them and, unlike some of the diva-esque vendors we had, they were great to work with! Rachanee is very focused when at work and she has a great eye. You'll absolutely look your best when she's done.
