Jael provided the hair and make-up for our wedding party, and she did an AMAZING job. She took our requests to heart and provided a natural but "special" look for our big day. Her work lasted all through the hard-core reception dancing and still looked great at the after-party (full disclosure: I am not a "dainty" dancer, so I figured all this pretty make-up would be running down my face mid-reception -- not so!) I highly recommend her to anyone looking for the most wonderful make-up artist!

I first met Jael at my bridal hair and make-up trial and was immediately impressed with her expertise and mellow, easy-going attitude. The day before the wedding, we had to make some unexpected changes in our meeting time/location, and she was so accommodating and flexible! On my wedding day, she single-handedly completed hair and make-up for my 4 bridesmaids and myself. It will always remain a mystery how she was able to do so with such speed and grace! :) She took time to understand what each of us envisioned, and we all looked--and felt--naturally beautiful. She even stayed later to help my mom finish her make-up when we were running behind! I would recommend her in a heartbeat! Thank you, Jael!!

I can't say enough about how much I loved working with Jael for my wedding. She did hair and makeup for me, my mom, and my mother-in-law, as well as hair for three of my bridesmaids. Everything she did was exactly as requested--she pays close attention to any pictures or feedback that you give her. The makeup is beautiful AND natural, which was a must for me since I didn't want to look like someone other than myself on my wedding day. And even better, Jael had such a steady, calming presence, despite having numerous photographers and bridesmaids crowding around her. Finally, her pricing is unbelievably reasonable. My mom and I agreed that she was one of our very favorite vendors. I HIGHLY recommend her!

Jael provided hair for 7 and makeup for 2 - all on her own! The makeup was so natural and elegant and everyone's hair lasted the entire day and night. Most importantly she was delight to work with and had such a calm demeanor which is exactly what is needed the morning of a wedding! Thank you Jael for everything!

Jael is absolutely amazing!! She was so kind from the first time I met her for my make up trials to the end on my wedding day. She does amazing work. Everyone enjoyed the make up she did for them. Very high quality supplies. Worth every penny.

Jael lived up to every expectation that I had for hair and make up on my wedding day, and then some!
She was very responsive and flexible setting up a hair and make up trial with me when I was visiting from out of town, and I knew right away from her demeanor that she would make me feel calm and confident on the "big day".
Day of she was absolutely wonderful- arrived right on time early in the morning to start hair and make up for my two bridesmaids and myself. Everyone left her chair looking absolutely gorgeous- I loved the way she accented our natural features and we all felt comfortable in the make up she did for us. As some others have said in their reviews, Jael is really great at making you look like the best version of you!
Thank you Jael!

I was referred to Jael through a friend and I could not be happier! She was flexible, reliable and best of all, made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. All of my bridesmaids said it was the best wedding makeup they have ever had and I was thrilled with the way everyone looked. I'd recommend her to all my friends!

I worked with Jael for my wedding hair and makeup. First off, her pricing was the best in the area. For the trial it was half the cost of the event date. She also came to my house so I was in a comfortable enviorment and did not charge any extra for the travel. Also, she applied fake lashes as part of the cost and did not charge extra. She did an amazing job on my makeup. I am incredibly picky about how my makeup is applied and she did exactly what I asked for and make it look amazing. She's also very friendly and responsive.

Jael did a fabulous job on both hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids back in July. She was easy to work with and super easy to communicate with. She was able to schedule my trial around my crazy schedule (I was living out of town at the time) which was a huge help!. I'm often wary of getting my makeup done because I feel like it is always so caked on that I don't look like myself but I didn't feel that way at all with what Jael did. She listened to my concerns and was able to create a look that I loved. I also love the individual eyelashes that she used - they totally made my eyes pop. I would highly recommend Jael for any hair or makup needs.

Jael did an incredible job on my makeup, I was extremely pleased. I have been to other "professionals" none of whom did well with my light complexion and always made me look overdone and fake. Jael's work highlighted my natural beauty and positive features, but subtly corrected my problem areas, I still looked like myself but better! She worked with my desires and preferences, and made helpful knowledgeable suggestions as needed. My pictures came out incredible and I got so many compliments!
