With over 20 years of experience as a professional makeup artist and hair stylist in TV, print and video, Betsy brings her "less is more" approach to an area she loves the most ~ weddings. Her ability to create a natural look with an understated elegance makes her a top choice for California brides or as she often says, "I'll give you the most beautiful version of you."

When you schedule your trial run, I suggest that you gather some pictures of different looks you'd like to try. I also ask you to bring a tank or camisol that is similar to the style and color of your dress. After we try each look I take pictures and print them right away so that you have an idea of how the looks read for the camera. The photos are yours to keep so that you can look at them after we meet to decide whether or not you'd like to work with me on your wedding day. On your wedding day, I leave you with a dupioni silk touch- up kit containing blotting papers, the lipstick I used, a lip brush and a tin of mints.

When you're ready to schedule your trial run, you can give me a call at 818-786-0422. I'd love to hear from you! Read less

I found Besty diFrancesca on the internet and did as much research as I could, but I had no idea if she was a good choice. I needed hair and makeup services for my daughters and me for a wedding. I should not have worried. Betsy was wonderful. She showed up on time and was very professional. She was pleasant and responsive to our requests. She did an outstanding job on all three of us. I was overwhelmed by the very enthusiastic "reviews" by my friends and family. I would definitely use her services again and I recommend her without reservations.

Betsy is amazing! I had the good fortune of hiring her to do my hair and makeup for my recent wedding and I couldn't have been more pleased. Betsy's professionalism and artistry are unparalleled. She was sensitive to my needs and worked to create a beautiful and elegant look for my wedding day. In addition to the wonderful work that she does, Betsy is so wonderfully down to earth. By the time she is done with your makeup, you'll feel like you have made a new friend. I just love her, and am certain that you will love her too.

I feel so fortunate to have found Betsy, who did my makeup on my wedding day. She also did makeup on my mom and my two bridesmaids. Betsy is a consummate professional, very responsive, pleasant and kind, prompt-- I could go on! She did such a great job. She is a true artist who will really listen to what you want, give you options if you're not sure what you want, etc. I recommend doing a trial with her to figure out the exact look you want so you're not nervous and she knows what to do on the wedding day itself. I actually did a trial before with a different makeup artist and the difference between her technique and Betsy's much more assured and talented hand was enormous. Betsy does a "natural look" but the result is still by far a more special and beautiful version of yourself than you're probably used to. I felt extremely glamorous! She is just really excellent at her work. She also was flexible about timing my trial, traveling to do it at my home, etc. And I shopped around and honestly Betsy is an incredible value for the service she provides. She also uses top-of-the-line products. She is the best!

Betsy was a joy to work with. During my trial appointment, she listened attentively to what I was looking for and made me feel pampered and at ease. Her calming presence was especially reassuring on my wedding day. I got many compliments on my updo and makeup from my guests, and most importantly, I felt beautiful. I was referred to her by a friend whose hair and makeup was done by Betsy, and I have since referred my friends to her for her great work -- it's worth it!

I was very fortunate to have been referred to Betsy by my cousin – and even more fortunate that she was not already booked! Betsy is more than just an experienced make-up artist that is both professional and talented. Her calm and easy-to-talk-to personality is such a delight, whether you are shy (like me) or sociable, make-up-naive or a make-up guru. In my case, her cheery and sincere attentiveness was a much appreciated contrast to the daily stresses of working full-time plus planning a wedding. I loved the different looks that we tried, and even though it was difficult for me to describe exactly what I was wanting for the wedding – I was able to show her good pictures of myself without makeup, and she knew right away what color hue I would like more on my lips and skin. She made sure my skin and hair not only looked natural, but were also touchable (a special request from the fiancé). In addition, she uses products with exceptional quality that didn’t aggravate my sensitive skin – some of the best my bridesmaids and I had ever seen. During the wedding planning my atopic dermatitis was at its worst on my eyelids and upper lip. I also developed 3 very big zits and a burn blister on my chin from microwaved soup. I had pretty puffy eyes from a sleepless night and even woke up later than planned. I was devastated, but when I sat with Betsy on the big day, she took care of everything with ease. She was the calmest person in the whole lodge while managing to do my hair & makeup, my cousin’s and even my mom’s hair (which was not planned) before we were needed.
I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis due to my skin and I am very shy and inexperienced when it comes to wedding planning and working with vendors. She really is as wonderful and highly-talented as the reviews describe. When she’s working with you, her mind is on you and bringing out your beauty in the way you want others to see it. I highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again :)

My experience with Betsy was fantastic from beginning to end. We enjoyed a great trial day where she let me explore different looks. I kept pushing one direction and ultimately Betsy's professional opinion was the best. Instead of a touch of 60's flair, we went with a bit of an Old Hollywood look, much more appropos for our venue and my dress. Betsy made me look my best on my wedding day and was an incredibly calm, kind and fun person to be around on the day of. It is nice to know that your hair and make-up will look exactly like your trial run on the day of your wedding - her work is consistent and flawless. I highly recommend Betsy for your special occassion - you will be very happy.

Having Betsy do my hair and makeup for my wedding was the best decision I ever made. (Next to saying yet to my husband, of course. :) We did a trial session before the big day, which I would definitely recommend. I got to see myself made up, and with the image in mind, it put me at ease for the actual nail biting morning of the wedding.

Betsy truly saved the day for me! I got married 4 weeks after having major surgery...and she still managed to make me look like a red headed goddess! She was calming, sweet, engaging, professional and easy to work with. She also did my mom's makeup which was a treat as she was my Matron of Honor and neither of us wanted to stress about our makeup.

I gave Betsy all 5 stars because I absolutely loved working with her. She made me look and feel beautiful in an otherwise stressful time. At the same time, I am not someone who wears makeup or fusses with their hair...and I did not feel "too" made up. I felt simply beautiful.

Thank you Betsy!!!

Betsy was absolutely amazing. I gave her some photos a few months ahead of time of what I wanted for hair and makeup, we discussed some of the finer details, and then on the day of my wedding she made me feel like an absolute movie star. I would recommend Betsy to anyone looking for a true professional who very much enjoys what she does. Betsy is very talented and made me feel like myself on my wedding day.
