INFO FOR BEAUTY & HEALTH

What beauty services do you offer?
Hair, Makeup
Do you offer trials and consultations?
Yes
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes
Do you charge for trials?
Absolutely! A trial session is always recommended. During a trial run, I will be able to pin point your individual style and work with you to create a look that best suits you. It's a great time see how your favorite magazine clippings actually look on you! Most importantly, it offers you a piece of mind in knowing exactly what you are going to get on your big day.
Do you specialize in textured hair?
Here in Hawaii, we encounter a mixture or races and cultures. We are highly experienced with all hair types and will confidently welcome anyone to partake in what we love to do best...STYLE!
Do you provide any specialty services? (airbrushing, hair extensions, etc.)
Liquid foundation is a product of the past! We proudly offer 100% cruelty free airbrush makeup. We love airbrush makeup simply because of the ability it has to create a flawless complexion using the least amount of product. Therefor it is weightless and feels much more comfortable to wear. It's water resistant properties will never have you worrying about touching up because it wears much longer than a traditional foundation.
Do you travel to the client on the day of the event? If yes, is there a fee?
We are a mobile salon and travel to your for your most lavishing pampered experience. We provide on-site hair and makeup services anywhere in Hawaii.
How many customers can you serve at one time if the bride were to book her entire bridal party? Are there discounts for doing so?
There is no limit of clients that we can work with at one time. Faith & Beauty has a freelance team always ready to beautify!
How far in advance should clients book your services?
It's always best to book your reservation as soon as possible to ensure you reserve the date that you want. We get bookings anywhere from 2 years out to 2 weeks out. The more prepared you are, the more likely you are to book with your favorite vendors.
What is your cancellation policy?
Upon signing of agreement, we ask that you make a $50 deposit that. Your deposit secures your wedding date and time, and is non-refundable.

Gemina and her crew were great! They asked us what type of hair styles we had in mind and did it exactly as I pictured it would be. They also did makeup and since I am not really experienced with doing makeup I asked their opinion on what they thought and they knew exactly what type would match us for the event. I would definitely recommend Faith and Beauty to friends, family and everyone. Thank you again for help making my evening spectacular!

Gemina did an awesome job for our wedding and was such a pleasure to work with! Doing the trial run with her was very helpful. I like how she took notes & pictures of everything at the trial, and followed-up with me that night to see how my hair and make-up held up so she could make adjustments accordingly. During the planning stages, she was quick to reply to emails, and kept good communication. She is also good with "going green", we took care of all payments electronically, I didn't have to send anything through the mail! Lastly, having her there to do my hair and make-up on the day of my wedding, made me feel very calm and relaxed. She even came thru although she was expecting to have her baby in few days! How awesome is that!

Gemina Chong is amazing! She did my makeup for my wedding. I asked her to make me look beautiful and still like myself. She understood completely and knew exactly what to do. She also knows what she's doing with curly hair, which is very rare! I couldn't have asked for better hair and makeup.

Gemina was an absolute gem for my wedding! Having read great reviews for her, it enabled me to make a well informed decision + I hope my review will help future brides. I booked make-up services for both myself and my mom. Gemina was great from the time of booking - she eased any concerns I had and was available to speak with whenever I had any questions. When it came time for my trial, she effortlessly navigated her way through the traffic, hotel and the trial...all while being 8 months pregnant! She was so amazing and great to talk to. She's able to make you feel comfortable and I (personally) felt that by the time the trial ended, I had made a friend! When the wedding day came, she was early and prepared. I had made some notes on my make-up and she listened to my concerns and made quick decisions about how to avoid some of those issues all while keeping up with the timeline and allowing me to look and feel my best once she was done. I couldn't have been more thrilled with my make-up!! It looked amazing and lasted the entire day (even through a cake smash to my face)!

Gemina and her partner were amazing! My wedding was earlier in the day and they were willing to arrive at the crack of dawn to begin the hair and makeup process. Gemina and her partner were very easy going and made my entire bridal party and I feel comfortable. I showed her a picture of what I wanted my hair and makeup to look like and she delivered. Planning a Hawaii wedding from Chicago took a lot of time and research and I'm very happy that I chose Gemina to be a part of it.

Faith and Beauty was recommended by my wedding coordinator and I'm so happy that I decided to go with them. Gemina and her team were awesome. They both did a great job with hair and makeup and my girls and I looked awesome. Germina and Sara both have a great personality so they were easy to talk to and we had a blast with them. They were also very accomodating to make sure that our hair and makeup was to our liking. Both my mother and I requested to have part of our makeup redone because we didnt like the heavy makeup look (even though we were the ones that initially requested it) and they happily obliged. I actually requested a different look the day of (than what was planned from the trial) and provided Gemina with a picture of the look I wanted to achieve. She was able to get me the look that I wanted and everyone said that my makeup looked beautiful but most importantly, I felt like me in my makeup...just prettier. :) Highly recommend them.

I love Gemina! She and her team made all my girls look so good for the wedding! Everyone was complementing how beautiful my mom and my mother and sisters-in-law looked! Of course everyone loved my hair and make-up too! My hair stayed on for the whole 8+hrs of wedding day---even with the Ko'Olina winds. My make up was flawless--even after staying for 30 mins under the hot sun!
Gemina and her team were great! Everyone was really comfortable with them---and really, for me, part of hiring people is not only by the work they do but the comfort level I feel around them. And honestly, if you are going to sit in front of someone for 2-4 hrs (depending on the service you get), you might as well find someone you can easily talk to and have a real conversation with right?!
They were really fast with their service too! I had 10 girls get full hair and make-up done and they got everyone done ahead of schedule.
She is very flexible with her schedule when I was trying to set up my trial and very easy to contact (email, call and text).

While planning for my Hawaiian wedding (all the way from Texas!) I found Gemina's information and was giver her recommendation from various vendors. I quickly e-mailed her to check on her availability and pricing. Gemina was always timely in her responses and professional. I found her rates to be extremely reasonable and a great value. We stayed in contact during the intervening period before my wedding and put in place a contract detailing the services to be provided. Gemina was on time and prepared on my wedding day. She did my mother's and my hair and makeup, and we couldn't have been more impressed.

While planning for my Hawaiian wedding (all the way from Texas!) I found Gemina's information and was giver her recommendation from various vendors. I quickly e-mailed her to check on her availability and pricing. Gemina was always timely in her responses and professional. I found her rates to be extremely reasonable and a great value. We stayed in contact during the intervening period before my wedding and put in place a contract detailing the services to be provided. Gemina was on time and prepared on my wedding day. She did my mother's and my hair and makeup, and we couldn't have been more impressed.

I've always admired Gemina's work and thought, if I ever get married I definitely want her to do my makeup! So when I got engaged, I contacted her right away! I really wanted to go with a natural look for my wedding day and she did just that! I couldn't have been any happier with my makeup! She is the sweetest and made the whole bridal party feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend Faith & Beauty services for your special day! I guarantee you'll feel and look exceptionally beautiful!

All of the bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup! The girls with thin hair got volume and the girls with thick hair got tight simple updo's. I loved my side updo! So easy to communicate with Gemina! After our trial run, I aired some concerns with her, and she was so open to suggestions. The final product ended up being that much better! Thank you!

Gemina was wonderful to work with. I was a bit frazzled with planning a destination wedding and she was wonderful at communicating via phone and email. We scheduled a trial when we got to the island and she carefully listened to what I envisioned.
The wedding preparation went smoothly. The mothers and flower girls looked lovely and I have never looked better. Thank you, Gemina, Monae and Faith & Beauty for making me look amazing!

We had a small beach ceremony on 10/10/10 in the most beautiful beach that I have ever seen, Angels bay at Waimanolo beach. Gemina and her assistant did my hair and my make-up and they did such an amazing job. I could not have been happier with my wedding makeup. I felt like a model in all my pictures, I cannot express how pleased I am with my experience with Gemina. Thank you so much for such a great experience. I really feel that their work made all the difference in the world. I would recommend Gemina again and again.

Gemina did such an amazing job for my North Shore wedding! I was a little worried booking hair and make-up for such an important day from a few thousand miles away, but Gemina was very prompt in email response and any questions or concerns I had.

They arrived on time at my hotel for our appointment and took less then an hour to do my hair and make-up.

I would gladly recommend Faith & Beauty to any bride.

Thanks Gemina!

Gemina and her assistant were great! I was a bit scared to find and book Makeup Artist and Hair Dresser for a destination wedding. After picking few, based on reviews and cost combine, I found that Faith & Beauty has also great customer service - they responded to my request super-fast and communication is a MUST for any wedding, especially destination wedding!

I have decided to pick trial package as well to make sure I will be getting exactly what I am looking for my wedding. Gemina and her assistant exceeded my expectations! I was intervening giving advices on my hair, but they assure that they know what to do and I was not disappointed!

After trial my mom and my friends were stunned with how great the look was and that nothing needed to be changed!

At my wedding day on August 20, 2010 I felt like a Million bucks and my husband couldn't take away eyes from me. :)

Do not hesitate and just pick Gemina's services! You will not regret it! She will make your day even more special! Many thanks!

Gemina is an incredibly talented artist and so sweet! I stumbled upon her when she was working at a makeup counter and after she applied my makeup better than anyone before had, I was thrilled to find out she did bridal applications. Honolulu was my second reception (I grew up there but my husband and I got married in Chicago where we currently live), so it was low key. After looking at all our professional pictures, though, I wish Gemina had been around for the big shindig in Chicago! My makeup was so much more flattering and more natural looking than the fancy makeup artist I used in Chicago. Gemina even made my eyes look even (I have a double fold on one eye and no fold on the other)! She did my mom's makeup, too, and we both still talk about how great we felt with Gemina's work :D Gemina is such a pleasure to have around, too, as she is so calm and is the sweetest lady. The morning of the reception, I felt as thought I was just chatting with a girlfriend as she made me look gorgeous. I wish I could have her with me every time I go out on the town!

Returning home to Hawaii from Las Vegas for my wedding aboard the Navatek I was very exciting. Gemina made it even more beautiful with her great work! I was so worried about looking good on my special day. We got together before my big day to pick out the right look and colors. WOW! I was 47yrs then and she managed to achive a great look for me. I was stressed on my big day until Gemina arrived at my hotel room. Her sweet spirit had such a calming effect on me. I am a flight attendant and carry my wedding picture on my lanyard. I get great compliments all the time. In fact it was the only photo I ever took that did not require any touch ups! Gemina is truly a "GEM"!

Gemina from Faith & Beauty was a pleasure to work with. She came recommended by my planner and when I did my research on her I literally couldn’t find one bad review. She did both my hair and make-up and I felt beautiful without feeling overdone.

We did a practice run the morning of my Bridal Shower (2 days before my wedding). It was just the two of us in my hotel room and it was nice to be pampered and work with her directly on the look I was going for without a lot of distraction. The practice run was helpful in that we talked through and tweaked a few things for the wedding.

I was nervous the morning of my wedding. But she had such a calming presence – there was a lot of swirl and commotion with everyone getting ready and people coming in and out. She had a calm, cool vibe and had us laughing with a couple entertaining stories. We even sang along to some random Beyonce songs at one point.

Her payment methods, contracts and invoices – everything is done very easily online which made things a breeze. I was also encouraged and inspired by her story. It’s nice to see an independent businesswoman doing something she is obviously so passionate about and gifted at to boot!

My look for the day was natural but still picture perfect! Gemina is a busy lady so it was tough getting used to waiting at times especially as a planning bride) to hearing back from her but once you know that, it's easy not to overthink it. She did always respond in the end and easy to work with. We did my trial at home which made it convenient and she took good notes. I'd highly recommend Gemina!

Faith & Beauty did a wonderful job on not only my hair/makeup, but the most important thing, peace of mind before and during my wedding day!! I planned my wedding long distance from CA and had never seen the venues, vendors, etc.! Gemina e-mailed and Skyped with me to ensure she knew what I was looking for. She listened to what I wanted and I was so happy with the results. I was a little concerned about looking too made up, but she did a great job. I recommend the airbrush foundation and eyelashes, they look great in real life and in the photos. Thank you Gemina!!

I chose her because all the reviews are so good, BUT UNFORTUNATELY I did not have a very good experience for my wedding. Two weeks after completing the booking and payment, I tried to setup Skype consultation with Gemina. I emailed her twice and she didn't respond until one day before my wedding (which was two weeks after I sent the first email). She was on vacation and did not set her email to send out-of-office email automatically.

On the wedding day, she ran a bit late. I showed her some pictures of what I want my hair to look like and she had a hard time styling it because apparently my hair was too short. IF we had done the consultation like we were supposed to, she could tell me and I could find a different style. During the make up, the team talked about past brides in a negative way which I think was unprofessional and not nice. I liked my make up, but my sis and mom did not like their hair and make up.

I chose her because all the reviews are so good, BUT UNFORTUNATELY I did not have a very good experience for my wedding. Two weeks after completing the booking and payment, I tried to setup Skype consultation with Gemina. I emailed her twice and she didn't respond until one day before my wedding (which was two weeks after I sent the first email). She was on vacation and did not set her email to send out-of-office email automatically.

On the wedding day, she ran a bit late. I showed her some pictures of what I want my hair to look like and she had a hard time styling it because apparently my hair was too short. IF we had done the consultation like we were supposed to, she could tell me and I could find a different style. During the make up, the team talked about past brides in a negative way which I think was unprofessional and not nice. I liked my make up, but my sis and mom did not like their hair and make up.

I chose Faith & Beauty because they have positive feedback. I tried to contact her (after I paid the full amount online) and ask her a few of my concern before our wedding but she was unresponsive. My wedding coordinator finally reached her and realized that she got our timing wrong. Instead of 10 am, she put us in her 6 am slot. Our wedding ceremony won't start until 3 pm so which leaves us 9 hours sitting around doing nothing.

On our wedding day, she left us a text message in the morning saying that she will be in the hotel at 8 am instead of 6 am because she got an extra "helper" which allows her to speed up the process. However, I've already ask my videographers (which also photographers) extra $400 dollars just to come in at 6 am to take my "get ready pictures". So we are sitting for the good 2 hours waiting for her to show up. Not so nice when it is on your wedding day and you need to get as much rest as possible.

Her make up was good and professional but her updo wasn't that great. If she contact me sooner, I would of send her the picture of the updo that I want. She couldn't copy the hairdo that I requested. Since she called her next client (yes, in front of me) the same excuse as the one she gave us, which leaves no time for her to fix my hair. I just said fine and let her go because I was too frustrated.

Basically she screwed up our wedding schedule, I couldn't take my getting ready pictures at the venue that I wanted; paid extra $400 which we shouldn't have; unnecessary stress in the morning of our wedding; woke up 2 hours early and waited around doing nothing; my husband have to drive to my location instead of the venue (which was a hassle); 1 hour behind of schedule because she was slow (if she showed up at 6, we would be right one time).

Very disappointing, sometimes when a business is doing great and you have great reviews, they tend to forget the fundamental of a good business: customer service.

Faith & Beauty responded with the following comments:

This is very unfortunate that you felt this way. I think all of my reviews speak for themselves so I wont spend too much time trying to dispute this review in particular since this is pretty much one of my first and everyone is entitled to their own opinion. With all the last minute changes and contract changes, I (I am not the only vendor that was very frustrated with this wedding might I add) there was s time change that was by no means any fault of mine (it was due to extremely poor planning). Mind you, when we got there, we had to walk to another room which nobody could find and what should have taken us 15 mins took about 40 min. So in between a room change, an unprepared bride not knowing what type of hair style she even wanted (which is fine but I shouldn't get knocked for this), time changes, I believe she even had wet hair, yes we ran late, and yes I tried my best wich obviously was not a good match for you. Over all, like I said my other reviews much out weighs one bad. I thought I went above and beyond to try to accommodate this one but you can't win em all.
