Every bride wants to look amazing on her wedding day. However, having your makeup done doesn't have to mean looking too makeup. With my working experience, I know the importance of your makeup being picture perfect, long lasting and looking beautiful in eyes of your guests.

During the process of trial makeup application, I will take the time to get to know the real you.

Our clients never leave with "customer remorse". She has complete confidence with her new look and still feels looks like herself. Opening the door to self experience is the real art of make-up artistry.

We use only the best makeups, such as Bobby Brown, Channel and because I work on your site, you can conveniently have your makeup done where you need to be on your big day.

We have added an airbrush to our services in response to an overwhelning demand for additional service and no extra cost to you.

We have the expertise to make you look as great as you'll feel on your wedding day.

We hope you will stop by and enjoy.

May was recommended and booked through a planner for our long-distance wedding in Hawaii, and I could not have been happier with the arrangement! May is sweet and easy to talk to, and really knows what she is doing. She arrived to the hotel on time to do hair and makeup for 3 family members before doing mine, and everything was done on schedule or ahead of time. We had a wide variety of requests for make-up and hairstyles, and she managed to accommodate everyone's tastes wonderfully. I think most any bride can trust May to do a great job whether or not they have specific ideas in mind. I had a very good idea of what to do with my hair, and it looked how I imagined, only better! I know very little about makeup, though, and left this up to her. She chose great colors and everything has looked perfect in photographs so far! May found a great balance between something more dramatic than usual and a look that didn't feel unlike "me." It's also been nice getting lots of compliments on the day of the wedding and since :) May will put you at ease before the wedding and make you look great in those photos that are left over after everything finishes!

May is AMAZING! She is such a sweet woman and was truly wonderful! May did my hair and make-up for my parents vow renewal and I could not have been more impressed. She knew exactly what to do for my hair to stay in place in the Hawaiian heat and humidity; it was beautiful! I usually don't wear any make-up and May did my make-up so natural, I loved it! May absolutely made our morning of getting ready wonderful and so enjoyable. We had nothing to worry about and she did a phenomenal job on all three of us. She is so kind, generous, gentle and had great attention to detail! May had lots of information to share with us about herself and Hawaii. What a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend May to anyone! Thank you, May!

May did a excellent job on my pre- wedding photo day. On my important day, she helped me to design 4 styles of hair do. All of them are stunning and elegant. She can do all the makeup style that I requested. As I come from Hong Kong, I worried about the make up style may not fit me before. Nevertheless, May did a wonderful makeup and hairstyle for me. She also used the accessories well. My parents and all my friends love so much! No matter who you are or where you from, I strongly recommend May to all bridals. She is so nice and professional. You must feel her passion during the service.

I initially had May do my hair for my wedding back in 2009 and subsequently used her services for hair and makeup for special events. Recently she did my hair for my sisters wedding and her work is excellent. She did my hair exactly as shown in the photo I provided and she also offered her opinion/advice when I asked here what she thought would suit my face/dress better.
She is very responsive to emails and is very prompt. I would trust her with any hairstyle as she has worked with many different hair types. May is very easy to work with and was quick with both my hair as well as my sisters (bride). Even the makeup artist my sister went with was impressed with her work. May is the best. She is the only one I will go to if I need to "pretty" up for a special occatsion

May was absolutely amazing and very talented! My maid of honour and I didn't get to a chance to do a trial or to meet May prior the wedding. We relied on the wedding planner's recommendation. I am so glad we did! May was very prompt and is very friendly. We showed May a picture of the hairstyle we wanted and told her we wanted a very natural look for lookup. Both hair and makeup turned out perfectly and lasted all night! Even the husband who doesn't usually like makeup thought it was good! I got the choose to use airbrush foundation. It turned out so smooth! Loved it! She also gave us a very handy lip touchup kit!

Would highly recommend May for hair and makeup!!

I love May and so does my bridesmaids! If I could, I'd put her in my bag and take her home with me! Then we'd have to fight over who gets her first! =) My girls are very picky with their makeups but they ooh'd and ahh'd about how great the makeup/hair turned out. She showed up earlier than scheduled time (A++++ in my book) and she was such a great person to work with. I would highly recommend booking her.

My makeup came out perfect! Amazingly, the makeup lasted more than 10 hours! Bonus was the touchup kits :) Thanks May, I only used it once for my lips.

Now the hair was amazing. I have thin Asian hair and she managed to give me volume and bounce that I've never seen before. On the day of my wedding, it was crazy windy but whatever magic she did with my hair, it stayed in place.

Thanks May for making me beautiful and my wedding would not have been perfect without your great work! =)

I will recommend May to any brides looking for a professional, sweet, flexible makeup artist who offer quality service at an affordable price!! I was so tired on my wedding day because I didn't get much sleep the night before, but May rescued me and made me look so beautiful! My mother, mother in law, and the maid of honor all loved their looks. Can't say anything bad about her!

Being an "out of town bride" it was extremely difficult to find an artist that I trusted to do my make-up on the day of the wedding that was inviting and reasonably priced. I found May and she responded immediately, she answered all my questions, and she was flexible with my limited schedule for my trial before the wedding. My trial went amazing!!! I LOVED what she did with my hair and make-up.

On the day of the wedding, May arrived on-time, which is HUGE in my book. She got started right away and was flexible with each bridesmaid, what they wanted, what they didn't want, and didn't make them look like drag queens.

It was very important to me that I looked like myself on my wedding day. My hair was perfectly placed and my make-up was FLAWLESS. My husband, who is very critical of make-up, said that I looked STUNNING and that he couldn't stop looking at my eyes and how "perfect" my face looked.

I cannot thank May enough for making me look and feel like a princess on the day of my wedding, working diligently and on time, and being so incredibly sweet :)

I cannot recommend May highly enough!

She was recommended by our wedding co-ordinator. It was a bit daunting getting married in a foreign country and not meeting May or anyone else until the day of the Wedding. Most brides I spoke with had a practice run of hair and make-up, but as we were only in Oahu a short time before the wedding we decided against this.

As it turned out, I needn't of worried at all! I sent May a photograph in advance of how I wanted my hair. As she was doing my hair I found an example of the style of make-up I wanted. As she worked on my my hair and make-up I felt completely relaxed and just knew I was in good hands. My hair and make-up was done to perfection!

May was friendly and professional, she even helped me get into my wedding dress! :-) I just wish she could come to England to do my hair and make-up for our wedding party!

Huge mahalo!

May was amazing!!! My make up and hair looked exactly the same in the morning when she did it and at the end of the reception. I was complimented by everyone :) I showed May pictures of what I wanted at the trial and she delivered the exact look that I was going for. She was friendly and prompt (actually she came 15 minutes early).

I will recommend May to everyone I know!

When a bride gets so many compliments about her looks on the most special day of her life, she must be overwhelmed with happiness and excitement. This is how I felt because May made me look simply gorgeous! I have a very ordinary complexion and my hair is a mess most of the time :) but what May did just proves her talent and professionalism. I had no idea what I wanted. We did the hair and makeup trial, and the new me was impressive. All brides look beautiful especially with the bridal gown on, but makeup and hair doubles the wow effect. That's what I heard the whole ceremony and reception - people were saying 'wow' with admiration.
May is very prompt. We had two appointments with her and she was early for the both, which is extremely important considering the terrible traffic on Oahu.
I have heavy and thick Asian hair. May put it up so well, that the hair stayed untouched even after breezy photography on the beach!
She is the most delightful, friendly and witty stylist I have ever encountered! One of those few people you easily connect with. I honestly fell in love with her! :))

May did a wonderful job with my makeup & hair for our wedding! It was exactly what I wanted. I usually don't wear a lot of makeup so I was really nervous coming from out of town. I've been searching online for a long time but wasn't happy with the other works I found. Most of the other sites I found, the makeup and hair is really heavy and very dated. I wanted something more natural and May did the perfect job. Highly recommended!

We hired Beauty by May to do hair and makeup for bride and bridesmaids.

May was amazing to work with! She was very kind, prompt with responses, and very timely on the big day! I was at ease with her as I sat in the chair while getting the makeover... so comfortable that I almost fell asleep! She was gentle while applying make up, yet punctual with the eye-lining and such. The end result for both hair and make up for all of us really blew me away!

Her prices were what really sold me! Extremely reasonable... definitely a bang for the buck!

I feel so lucky to have worked with May. My hubby and I had a destination wedding last week on the North Shore of Oahu. May was recommended to me by my wedding planner and I am so thrilled to have worked with her. May was very quick to respond to all of my emails and was able to have a quick consultation with me a couple months before the big day when I was on the island. She and her staff were extremely professional, punctual, and listened to what I wanted and delivered. Everyone looked sensational!! I am giving May my highest recommendation. Any bride working with May is in good hands.

First off, I would like to commend May for doing such an awesome service! She did my hair and make-up on my wedding day. She was very prompt, very nice, very accomodating and very professional! I did not know what kind of hair and make-up style should I go for so I just left it all with her. She then told me she usually does natural/dramatic kind of make-up so I said yeah sure sounds nice! And it was really nice! I'd say I looked like a "naturally enhanced" ME! It was perfect! It was not overdone, not underdone, it was just right! Perfect blend! And the make-up looked better over time! My hair was...beyond beautiful! I have thin curly hair but she managed to make it look full and bouncy! I had a haku lei so she helped me put that on too. Everyone was saying how beautiful I looked like on my wedding day! I even had strangers approach me at the lobby of the hotel asking if they could take pictures of my hair cuz it was amazingly beautiful! I would highly recommend May! I wouldn't have done it any other way. Thank you sooooo much May!!!!

She asked me what I wanted and I told her I wanted an up do but was willing to let her do whatever she felt would look best. She made me look absolutely beautiful for my wedding day.

I would recommend her to anyone who needs hair and make-up done!!!! I will definitely be calling her again!!! :)

My wedding planner recommended Beauty By May to me for my destination wedding in Hawaii. May was very communicative with me leading up to the wedding and guiding me with what styles would work with my hair length. The day of the wedding, her and her assistant showed up on time and ready to work! They did the hair and make-up for four of my bridesmaids and myself with no problems. Everything went very smoothly and they were a calm presence in a usually hectic day. May did a fantastic job with my wedding hair and had a very light & effective hand with make-up (she even airbrushed the little bug bites on my back so they would not show up in pictures with my backless wedding dress)! May did everything she promised and fully delivered--Thank you May for all your help!

She was so pleasant & nice. She was extremely flexible and listened to our suggestions for both hair and make up but yet had such wonderful experience that she added her own suggestions which meshed perfectly and created a wonderful result.

We met up with "Beauty By May" before our wedding day just to discuss how we would like our hair and makeup done on the day. She took in all our ideas and made them all happen. I had a photo of a hair style that I really liked but I didn't think it would be possible to do with my hair style but she made it happen for me. I was so pleased. The makeup could not have been better either. She managed to make me look and feel great about myself but still so I looked like me. I could not recommend "Beauty By May" enough.

She did an absolutely amazing job! My hair was unique and stunning and my make-up looked very soft and natural. She also worked on my two young daughters and their hair and soft make-up looked amazing, as well! May offered excellent suggestions and I trusted her expertise. She even gave me a little touch-up kit to use the rest of the evening. I would highly recommend her and wish I lived closer so I could use her for all of my special events!

I receive a lot of good comment and all my sisters like my look a lot. She covered all of my dark spots with very natural skin color cream n make my skin look so smooth and perfect. She did a great job with the hair too. May is really nice and gentle as well. I would definitely recomend her for anyone who is looking for beauty service in Honolulu.

I was referred to May by my wedding coordinator to do my hair and make up, and I'm so glad that I was able to work with her. She did an amazing job! She was warm and friendly during the entire appointment, and it was so much fun to chat with her while getting ready.

May arrived for my appointment 5 minutes early, and came right to my hotel room. I had some general ideas for how I wanted my hair and makeup to look, but did not have any firm decisions. I showed May a picture, and provided my general comments. May listened and then provided great feedback and suggestions. I ended up going with her suggestion and my hair and makeup turned out gorgeous. I received so many compliments throughout the night and from people who have viewed my photos.

I'm so glad that I went with May, and would recommend her to anyone.

May and her assistant did my hair and makeup as well as hair and makeup for my 5 bridesmaids, my mother and mother in law. They did a wonderful job; everyone looked beautiful! They kept on schedule while still accomodating a couple change requests from the girls. The best part about May is her calming effect on everyone. She is calm, cool and collected during a time of total chaos. She brought a great energy to the morning of the wedding. She also did a fabulous job with my hair and makeup; it was exactly what I asked for. She also packed me a tiny makeup kit and gave me instructions for touch ups before she left. Thank you May!

I absolutely loved May! She's a natural at what she does and her personality is so sweet and reassuring. The second you meet her, you'll feel like she's a long lost friend! First, I scheduled a hair & makeup trial with May on the same day we had our engagement session so I could see how everything would photograph. I brought in magazine pictures of the hairstyle and makeup I wanted and she executed them perfectly. She took the time to make sure everything came out to my liking and took pictures of the final look on her camera so she could re-create it exactly.

When I got my e-session pics back from the photographer, I noticed that my hairstyle needed a little tweaking so I called May to discuss. She immediately picked up on what I wanted to fix and took notes. On the day of the wedding, she & her assistant showed up at our hotel room early and made my MOH, bridesmaid and 2 mothers look gorgeous & glamorous, yet natural. My hair & makeup was perfect and lasted through the whole day and night. I couldn't have been happier! She also provides the bride with a customized touch-up kit which comes in handy. I should also mention that her prices are very affordable compared to the other big names in the wedding hair & makeup business... I did my research!

May is amazing! She was great to work with when I did my H&M trial during my last trip, and she was just as great this time. My hunny does not like tons of makeup on me. He really loved her work. She also did such a wonderful job on my MOH & bridesmaids. I will definitely have to post some pix of the insane job she did on my cousins hair. My cousins hair goes down to below her knees. I don't know how she did it, but she managed to put it all up and it looked amazing! Everyone was so shocked. She is so sweet and great to work with. You cannot go wrong with May!

She did an awesome job on my hair and makeup. My hair held up throughout the day and night, even after my 1 year old daughter (the flower girl) pulled on my hair. I even had hair extensions that were clipped on and survive a very windy ceremony and my daughter. And I think she's affordable. This was a destination wedding for me, so I didn't know who to trust, but I'm glad I was able to trust in her.

May did my family members and my makeups & hairs. There were 7 of us, so it took her quite a while to finish the job. But May was very professional and worked hard and non-stop to make sure everyone looked great in limited time frame. And she is such a nice and sweet person! If you are going to have a wedding in Hawaii, she is the one you should definitely consider!!

May was so very sweet. She was always great about getting back to me on emails. She was on time the day of the wedding and finished services in time she stated. The only reason I didn't give her a full 5 on the service was probably only because I am so picky. She did a great job, but I also do hair and makeup so found myself picking and fixing things. My hair wasn't exactly what I wanted, but still pretty. Makeup had to be enhanced quite a bit too as I wanted something a little more dramatic. But all of that is my issue, not hers. Her work was still beautiful and I would recommend any destination bride to use her!

May made my makeup application so fun, relaxing, and enjoyable. She was so professional and made me look beautiful. My mother-in-law said, “You look like a doll.” She also did my sister’s hair and sister-in-law’s makeup & hair. I haven’t seen my sister-in-law with her makeup and hair done before, and I was stunned at her beauty. She kept to her schedule and managed her time well. My makeup lasted throughout my wedding and reception about 7 hours and she even provided me with face blotting wipes, Q-tips, and extra lipstick.

May was awesome! She was very helpful with anything I needed even last minute changes. Her make is good. Airbrush made it look not so caked on. My hair was beautiful as well. My curls didn't last as long as I wanted, but I think that's because I had a morning wedding and I was sweating! lol. Other than that she was good!
