It was an absolute pleasure working with Dedra Whitt! If you’re looking for a hair and make-up artist for your wedding, look no further. I assure you that you will not find anyone better than her. Her ability to thoughtfully and meticulously use just the right products and styles for each individual is unmatched. Oftentimes, hair and make-up artists have their own style or agenda that they seem to do for every client, regardless of what you actually ask for. Not Dedra. She will take every word that you say into consideration and then find just the right products (fyi: she has everything) to give you exactly what you’re looking for. And if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, she’ll know exactly what will look best on you based on your complexion, style, etc. And if you don’t normally wear a lot of make-up, she’s amazing at making it look extremely natural. I could not have been happier on my special day, and this was in large part due to Dedra. My hair and make-up looked great even at the end of the night after hours of dancing. And my bridesmaids looked beautiful! Dedra and her assistant (who was equally amazing) did such a wonderful job and really took the time to get each girl’s requests perfect. They were all so happy. And on top of everything, Dedra is an awesome, fun, easy person to be around! So you really can’t go wrong! She took the stress out of the big day because I knew that I was in good hands, and we had such a great time together. And finally, this is all coming from someone who hates getting her hair and make-up done - I either don’t look like myself, it looks overdone, or I simply don’t like the style. You will not have to worry about any of these concerns with Dedra. So do yourself a favor by crossing one more thing on your massive wedding to-do list and hire Dedra! You’ll be thrilled you did. Happy wedding!

Dedra was amazing from the moment of first communication with her, she was so quick to always get back with me via email or phone. She traveled to meet me to do a trial in Santa Barbara and then to the wedding a few months later. She was always early and ready to go. The make up and hair products that she uses as great she does not stick to one product line, but to products that work for you. She is a gem and made all 3 of us ladies look natural and absolutely beautiful. Dedra was also a very calm person to be around in the crazy time before the wedding, she stayed through the ceremony and even helped out with my nephew and puppy. I cannot say enough great things about her. She is a very talented lady and I wish I could have her with me all the time.

I had a very difficult time finding a makeup artist who would make me look like me, only better, and who didn't cost a fortune. I contacted Dedra and a lot of other artists too, and she responded very quickly and professionally. She understood what I wanted, and the trial went great--I went to an event that night, and my friends loved my hair & makeup.
Dedra did an even better job with my wedding hair & makeup. She gave my sister what she wanted (a very neutral face) and she made my mom look great & not overly made up, which is difficult.
Dedra uses brushes to apply foundation, so she can really get your face evened out without looking like a mask. She also did a wonderful job with my false eyelashes, using short ones on the ends of my lashline to make my eyes stand out but not look cobwebby.
Overall, I highly recommend Dedra!

Dedra was wonderful. She is professional and caring. I felt very comfortable with her from the moment we met. She was easy to get ahold of and was very accomodating of my busy schedule to come to my house for the trial run... both of them (I decided to have her do my hair as well after she'd already done the makeup trial) My makeup was perfect. It wasn't caked on and I felt natural. I have dark circles and puffiness and on my wedding day, my eyes looked amazing. Everyone complimented me. When she came over for the hair trial, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted. Dedra was very patient and offered some suggestions. She even helped take trial photos of my hair with my dress on. I ended up with some clip in extensions that we loosely curled and my hair was pushed over to one side with a feather clip. It was gorgeous and it stayed all night! The day of our wedding she was on time and at the end, she cleaned up every spec of hair and makeup. She even vaccummed! she was terrific and I'd recommend her!

I can't recommend Dedra highly enough. She kept me calm the day of my wedding and seemed to know exactly how I wanted my hair and make-up (natural and elegant) despite my being completely inarticulate! She also did a wonderful job on my flower-girl daughter's hair and make-up. Dedra was creative, flexible, extremely professional and a pleasure to be around.

There are two sides to getting your makeup done on your wedding day: The day itself (is your makeup/hair artist going to be there, on time, do what you want, make everything better) and for the rest of your life, when you (and everyone else in your life) look at your pictures.

Dedra was awesome. We did a run through of everything so that we both knew what to expect and how much time it was all going to take (and let me tell you, I've been with other brides who didn't do that...not pretty) And she was there on the day of my wedding on time and through the whole thing and cool as a cucumber and on top of it all--which is really what you need. Not another person in the room stressing out.

She is as on top of the trends (she's not going to make you look like your mother's wedding picture) as she is able to make your mom and your grandmother look great as well--and not like tramps.

Also, everyone who sees my picture says 'you look like a model!'....now, I'm not bad, but I'm no model. She did a great job of making me look gorgeous. My hair was exactly what I dreamed of and my makeup was perfect. She is professional and great to work with.
