Tiffany was very nice, but did not get my look the way I wanted. She is not bad at doing make up. I would say she's better than average, but the look was not was I asked for and I was extremely detailed with photos and written details. I even had a trial (which did not go well). I honestly would have cancelled after my trial, but it was too late as she recommended having the trial one month prior to the wedding, but asked for the $300 deposit right away (7 months prior). At the trial she did not try much of anything. She did it all one way and that was it. I didn't like it and she said she understood what I wanted to change and that I could send her details on what I wanted different for the wedding. At the wedding, however, she did not do what I had asked at all. I even had photos printed out for her just in case. She did not even get the eyeshadow color right--very different. I strongly feel taken advantage of since I was charged $250 for a "trial" and felt nothing but nerves afterwards.
Even though she did not do what I asked on my make, it was not bad. Other people liked it and since my photos will be edited, it will look good in my pro pics. It even looks good in the iphone pics I have seen, so all-in-all I am fine with it.
The real problem was the hair. With the help of my bridesmaids, we make sure she got the basic structure right -- position of pieces of hair and volume and part, etc. -- but she could not get my hair to curl AT ALL. I have never in my life had difficulty curling my hair. I curl it myself with almost not product. She completely over hair sprayed my hair which caused my fine hair to be extremely weighed down and brittle, when I had requested soft, large, bouncy curls. My hair was literally never curled--not even for a moment. The team she brought with her did a good job on my bridesmaids and Mother. I have two bridesmaids whose hair NEVER curls and their hair was curled and STAYED curled all night! This upsets me as I was the Bride.

I found out about Design Her Image through other yelp reviews. Tiffany is great since the trial. The make up for the trial is more bridal and dramatic, I've requested to tone it down on the actual wedding day for a more natural look. She's great and is very friendly. Tiffany also speaks Cantonese and it really helps to communicate with my mom and my friend. The make up last the entire day from 12pm to 9pm. I didn't even do any touch up. I highly recommend her service.

Tiffany was my makeup and hair stylist for my wedding and she was fantastic. I normally don't wear makeup and I wanted a very natural style, and she totally delivered. She's super nice and very open to feedback. She included my 2 bridesmaids and my mother on the day of the wedding, and she drove all the way to Big Sur to do it onsite.

She's very easy to work with and I'd definitely recommend her to a new bride!

We used Tiffany for our recent wedding makeup and hair. Being two brides, we wanted to look double beautiful but also authentic and different. Even though we are both from European descent, we decided to wear Indian white dresses to honor our passion for travel, culture and the exotic, and to surprise our guests. I remember telling Tigfany: "Make me look like and Indian Princess!" And she sure did! I looked as if i had just emerged from The Arabian Nights. My wife also looked gorgeous. At the same time, we had a different look and did not seem to be replicas of each other. Tiffany has a real talent of creating beauty. She is an artist who uses the human face and hair as her canvas and palette.
What caputured our attention might have been her "before" and "after" picture examples, but also her genuine interest in who we were and how we wanted to look, geel and be perceived.
Her execution was flawless and her personal style and follow-up sweet and caring. We will definitely be resorting to her for future special moments.

This is my first time to post on Yelp because of Tiffany! Thanks to Tiffany! She is an amazing and talented stylist, and I have found her from yelp by filtered. She made me look gorgeous and natural, even my birthmark has been covered and seems it hasn't been there ever!! she has rich experience, and she knew and definitely delivered the look I was looking for, even if I didn't know too much about bridal makeup prior to my wedding and I even have not tried any trial also.

In addition to the professional makeup service, she is really responsible and sweet, because I feel like that she was part of my family more than a vendor. She helped me to carry my bags, and always stand by my side to see what I need. She also worked with my photographer to help my husband and me stand in the right spot or try different poses to make our wedding photos better.

Her service price is maybe higher than average in this industry, but she is worth every $$. I highly recommend Tiffany to every bride.

Tiffany had a great makeup and hair style for my wedding ceremony in the past Friday. I am extremely satisfied with her make up! While I was taking pictures in San Francisco city hall, I got so many compliments from people walking by, saying how lovely I look. Tiffany did a great job transforming me into such a lovely bride! I seldom wear make up in daily life and I cannot believe how I look after Tiffany has transformed me using her skilled hands. I am more than happy. Thank you very much Tiffany!

A friend of mine recommended Tiffany's service to me. After looking through her website, I became really fond of her make-up style. Tiffany was also very friendly and helpful over the phone and during our in-person consultation session. Throughout the whole process, Tiffany really tried to customize the make-up session for my needs and tastes. I especially like her eye make-up effects, my husband was mesmerized by my movie-star-esque look.

I highly recommend her service to my friends and other soon-to-be brides!

The experience working with Tiffany was a great one. I wanted a natural look that still looks good on the photos. I was worried that I would not look like myself after makeup and hairdo. But Tiffany knows it well. The makeup might seem slightly on the heavy side in person, at first gance, but it looks perfect on photos. She created a look that I absolutely love, still looks natural, and goes perfectly with my dress!

Thank you, Tiffany, for making my big day a wonderful one!
