DO NOT HIRE HER!!! SHE IS UNPROFESSIONAL, UNRELIABLE & FLAKY!!!
I hired Jihyun in March, when she responded to my inquiry to The Makeup Institute about needing a makeup artist for my July wedding. She seemed nice at first. We had the 1st hair & makeup trial in April, with her friend Nick doing my hair. When I got home and looked at the photos, it was obvious that she didn't do a good job with the makeup. You can clearly see the undereye concealer (it wasn't blended in) and the french twist/chignon that Nick did fell apart after a few hours. She was too busy gossiping and "catching up" with her friend Nick. It was very unprofessional -- I hired her to focus on getting my makeup & hair; instead what I got was lack of attention and annoying chatter. I went to a cocktail party later that evening after the trial to do a "test run" to see how the makeup & hair would hold up. Only after 3 hrs at the party (it mellow cocktail party, no crazy dancing & I didn't even get sweaty), the makeup faded off and the chignon came apart. She even admitted a few days later by email that she was having "too much fun" and "forgot to put powder on my makeup to set it".

However by this time, I already signed a contract & put a 50% deposit so I was stuck. I emailed Ji with a list of things that didn't look good with the makekup and she agreed to do a 2nd makeup trial in April. It still did not turn out well. It was the kind of makeup I could do myself! She did not listen to what I asked for, even though I showed her a lot of photos of the makeup I wanted.

But after the 2nd trial in April, she basically fell off the face of the earth. She did not respond to ANY of my emails or phone calls. Even when I emailed her wanting to discuss the schedule for the wedding day and if she is able to find assistants to help with hair & makeup (I have 9 women who need hair & makeup), she did not respond. With only 2 weeks left I was in a panic!! I was finally able to reach her on June 21 and she promised she'd get back to me by Thursday or Friday of that week. She never did. Until now she has never returned any of my phone calls or emails.

She is so unreliable, flaky & unprofessional! She was nice at first and responsive to emails but once you sign the contract & give the deposit (basically you're "locked in") she takes your money & runs. Save yourself the stress & hassle. there are so many other makeup artists who can do a much better job than her!

I am filing a claim in small claims court as well.
