Hanna was great to work with! My bridesmaids were amazed how quickly she worked and efficient she was with her time and skill. She was early to arrive to set up and she worked so efficiently that she was done with 5 bridesmaids, 1 mom and myself all in 3.5 hours! She was great! And everyone commented how pretty we all looked. Highly recommended.

Hanna is AMAZING!!!

My cousin actually used her services for her wedding as well and I didn't know. I guess excellent work speaks for itself because I found her by accident on wedding wire. I booked her even before doing any trials just based on the pictures on her website and I was not disappointed!

She was very flexible, I had a lot of add ons on the day of and she was able to accommodate me and my family. She also works very efficiently. Finished 9 people including me in 4 hours. Everyone loved their hair and makeup. Mine turned out even better than I expected. Thank you Hanna for making me feel beautiful for my special day!

I absolutely LOVE how Hanna accommodates for each person their own unique style. She works diligently while communicating with me and my sisters with how we wanted our look to be. With our different hairstyles and face shapes, I don't believe there could by any other way to make us all look flawless. A lot of us aren't experts in doing makeup so we played around with few different shades for our makeup before deciding the winning shade. She was so vivacious and passionate about what she does and even giving tips that it really reflected on how each of us looked. Overall the best quality for our money.

Hanna did my makeup for my wedding and bridal portraits and I was elated! It was so perfect! She really listened to what I had to say about what I liked and didn't like about makeup and was very sensitive to the fact that I was terrified of looking too plastic. I looked like me only better!

Since then, I've been a bridesmaid for a makeup session with Hanna. The makeup sesh was so great! Hanna spent nearly two hours going through my makeup bag with me, discussing about my everyday go to makeup, what I would like to be able to do with makeup, how much I liked to wear, and then teaching and practicing techniques with me. Before I went I wasn't hopeless with makeup, I started out young in high school and never really thought of seeking professional help for it. Well I can honestly say that at least a handful of times since my session, I've been asked if I had my makeup done somewhere. It was really cool to be able to say, "no, I did it myself." ;)

Hanna is incredible! I hired her to do hair and makeup for my maid of honor and I on my wedding day. Even though I had a different direction of where I wanted to go with my hair and makeup than she did, she made sure what made me happy was priority and I am so happy because I looked and felt amazing. The makeup lasted all day, throughout the LA heat and sweat, and still looked so natural. The hair even held up throughout the wind, and we only needed a slight touch up of hairspray after six hours, which I felt was pretty impressive. Hanna had such exudes such a calm demeanor and we had such a great time working with her and getting to know her. She really made it a fun and stress free experience, as well as making us look fantastic!

I've only ever had Hanna apply airbrush make-up and honestly once you go airbrush, you ain't going back. This type of make-up application is an art in itself and you can call Hanna, Piscasso. She knows how to apply the perfect amount of coverage to create a flawless, not fake, effect. I can't get over how flawless it is, it's like having my skin when I was ten all over again. She even goes to the trouble of creating highlights and enhancing angles for a slimming and complimentary look. Any skin flaws, scars never existed. I am amazed at how much detail she can fit into 10 minutes. I'm in and out! Each time she finishes my face, I can't help but stare and share the doll-like product she's created.

Hanna not only provides her clients with beautiful results, but also an high amount of professionalism. She is incredibly warm, understanding and patient--all important aspects when working with over-bearing high-maintenance women. She listens to what we have to say and accepts it humbly. She is the best in the SoCal area.

Hanna does amazing hair. Amazing makeup as well, but amazing hair. She had all of us looking wonderful for each event and was able to handle our different styles and hair textures and lengths. Her styles were very natural and complimented us very well. And best of all, she was super personal and friendly, gave great and honest advice, and genuinely cared about how confident we felt getting ready for the big day.

Alana did our makeup, and does she really knows her stuff. Everyone of us LOVED her style of eye makeup, and my sister-in-law, who was extremely reluctant to getting anything done, loved it! She looked very fresh and natural and Hanna was superb at matching our skin tones with the right colors and styles of it. She really knew how to make us feel confident from the inside out and not just because what's on the surface. And she gave the bridesmaid, who had never had fake lashes before, a box to take home! The small touches from Hanna and her group meant so much to us. Their patience and professionalism really helped to make my day special truly...special.

Hanna did a wonderful job with the makeup for my wedding! She was there promptly at the venue and started working right away. I love how she did my makeup and everyone was telling me how pretty I looked! I have to thank Hanna for the awesome job on makeup and hair to make me feel so pretty on my wedding day. I highly recommend her! She especially is good at asian makeup (as I am monolid), which is a definite plus. Thank you so much Hanna for the fantastic job you did! She is quite busy so book her quickly.

I'm not too trusting when letting someone else do my makeup, but when I first spotted Hanna at a close friend's bridal shower, I couldn't help but go up to her and ask her for her number.

Soon after, I hired her to do my cousin's face and body makeup for her wedding portraits. Her theme was different, rocker/punk, so she fixed her up with some light smokey eyes, pouty red lips and flawless skin, not that she doesn't have that for her age anyway... anyway simply stunning! Then came an outdoor wedding for me a few weeks ago and I needed makeup that would withstand humidity, sweat and, yes, tears. So naturally, I called Hanna again. Both best choices I have ever made.

Hanna is a true professional. I recently coordinated my wedding with Hanna as the makeup artist for 9...yes 9 gorgeous yet very particular bridesmaids. Talk about calm, cool, and collected. She is focused, accommodating, and talented with a bubbly sweet personality on top of it. As the event planner, what really stood out to me was her attention to detail throughout the day. Hanna made sure to be nearby and ready for post-ceremony picture touch-ups. No small details can escape her! She'll make sure how you started out looking will be how you end up looking at the end of the day. If you are looking for a fantastic makeup artist that is trustworthy and genuine, Hanna's your girl!

It's always a little nerve-wracking to hire makeup artists just based on reading numerous positive reviews. From the booking to the day of, Hanna was so easy to work with. They accommodated multiple changes I needed/wanted (adding/removing bridesmaids who wanted services, retouching minor issues, changing hairstyles to fit what I wanted), and were very patient and pleasant in doing so! The morning of the wedding, Hanna came to our hotel room and got to set up right away. Even after not having done a trial hair & makeup consultation, my hair and makeup turned out even better than I had expected ! I'm not a big makeup person or guru but Hanna understood exactly what I wanted and made me feel naturally beautiful.

My makeup held through a very teary ceremony & reception and even through the Los Angelos club after party. I am so happy with how I looked in the pictures, beautiful and having her as the photographer along with hair and makeup makes everything so convenient. And of course, my bridesmaids looked amazing too! I would recommend Hanna any bride!

If you're looking for a great make up artist, hairstylist, AND photographer for your wedding, look no further!

Hanna and her team made our wedding day special. Hanna came on time. She worked professionally on my hair and make up. She made me look ah-mazing! I just showed her photos on my phone on how I wanted my make up and hair look like, and she made it exactly the way I wanted it to be with her competent skills. I was really nervous on my wedding day and she made everything very comfortable and easy.

I coordinated with her to do my pre-wedding photos as well and she was very helpful with all the details that I wanted for my photo shoot. She even shared her stories of brides and made my experience with her very personal . Her responses were very prompt, informative, and professional. She will never leave you in doubt about whether you looked good or not. She made sure every detail was polished and amazing.

It's really the whole package.

Hanna was incredible and made me look my best for my bridal portraits (and another fun photo shoot as well). She knows soooooo much about make-up that I was completely drowned and fascinated with all the ways and colors you can do to yourself. Hanna is extremely professional as well. I had so much fun visiting with her. I can’t wait to work with her again! She does AMAZING work and really listens to what the client wants. She also is creative and has great ideas. Thanks so much for all you do to make your clients look and feel gorgeous! See you again soon.

Her makeup applications are absolute PERFECTION; she can get you ready for a casual lunch date with the girls, or she can glam you up for a night on the town. I normally wipe off my makeup and re-do it myself once i get home, but not with Hanna. You are in VERY capable hands and you can trust her 100%!

Hanna is not only incredibly talented at the makeup work that she does, but she is attentive, responsive, helpful and flexible – A true wedding planner’s and bride’s dream! I was eternally grateful when she went out of her way to help a bridesmaid in need for me last week, taking time out of her evening to address a “tanning emergency.”

As a bride, Hanna will make you look and feel amazing on one of the most important days of your life. I highly recommend Hanna to any bride looking for a makeup artist who is not only talented, sweet, and kind, but who also puts her heart and enthusiasm into her work for each of her clients.

Hanna and her Team are the BEST!!! I knew she was going to be awesome from meeting her for the trail! She didn’t let me down at the wedding either!! She was friendly, super easy to work with, and so insightful!!!! I sooo recommend her!! Knowing your craft is one thing but her knowledge and skills were something else!! You can always find good makeup artist for your makeup and hair but finding the right makeup artist for your wedding is totally different! It wasn’t until after the wedding that I fully understood Hanna’s talent and skill level. I thought I looked gorgeous and it was confirmed by all the compliments I got from my family and friends but even the photographer! I was surprised that the photographer went out of his way to tell me twice! The photographer was so happy and impressed that Hanna not only was able to make me look beautiful in person but also on film! Now not only do I know have wonderful memories at my wedding but also fantastic pictures to remember them by!!! I can’t praise Hanna and her team enough for how great of a job they did! My bride’s maids came out great too but it’s really all about me =) jk jk. They looked great too!

It might be sad to say that my BIGGEST dilemma while planning my wedding was choosing a make-up artist--not the photographer, not the venue(just kidding), the cake. What does this say about me? Either I'm extremely vain or I'm extremely vain. After all, I'm an LA kind of gal and I like to look the part. Always need to stay on top of my game especially with all these californian beauties and celebrities out here! However, I've also been extremely spoiled at the hands of Hanna and her team. So much so that I was really considering her to fly out to Las Vegas in March.

Hanna is an absolute perfectionist of her craft--creating beautiful faces. She is, hands down, the most talented make-up artist I've ever had the experience of working with. To this day, I do not trust anyone else with my face. Like me, she is an ABSOLUTE perfectionist. I believe this is the most essential trait for an outstanding make-up artist. He does not finish his work until she AND her client are absolutely 110% satisfied. I loved the way my makeup looked from the time she finished until the end of the day. Thank you so much, Hanna !

I wasn't the star of the day, but I was surely treated like one. As a bridesmaid I was given just as much attention to detail with hair and makeup as the bride. Hanna is so sweet and was so attentive to each of us. My sister(The bride) isn't really patient especially when everything has to go her way and be perfect, but you can tell with the ambiance Hanna and her team provides we were all practically stress-free. She actually came 10 minutes early and set her things up and was on her way with our beauty in her hands. Very professional and very responsive.

I was so pleased with how Hanna did my makeup! I'm Asian and I'm not sure if this is common, but my eyelids are not identical. They give my each eye a different shape so applying the right way has not always been easy, but I love Hanna's technique in making them even and flawless. I'd also have to comment on how light it is, both makeup and hair style. I don't feel bogged down and oily after a few hours. Definitely would recommend.

Our wedding was at 845am, hanna was at the hotel by 4am, right on the dot. Very professional. I did my trial hair and make up with her for our engagement shoot outdoors, and it lasted the entire afternoon without touch up! I love how she pays attention to what you really want and is really concerned with how you actually want to look like. My hair and makeup stayed throughout the entire day, in the humid 80deg weather by the ocean. Will definitely recommend hanna

During a consolation with Hanna, I told her what I wanted with my hair & makeup for my upcoming wedding. I had really high expectations considering that this was a once in a life time moment and I couldn't be happier with the results. She was very flexible with how and what I wanted for my image. Do yourself a favor and get airbrushed foundation. It conceals anything you want to hide and it doesn't dry or rub off; very natural feeling. Her demeanor is very cute and professional so I felt at ease during the appointment. I told her that I wanted a hairstyle off of a tutorial I saw on youtube and it was absolutely perfect. I have to admit I was a bit concerned because my hair was thin and long, but she made it look fuller without having to put so many products in my hair. I hired Hanna through word of mouth from a few relatives of mine at my cousin's wedding and it's the best decision I've ever made. THANK YOU.

Hanna did my make up & hair as well as my 3 bridesmaids. I am mixed asian/white and so I have very contrasting features. She was able to to achieve a flawless beautiful look for me. She arrived on time, was communicative before and during the process. I used a different girl who charged the same prices for my engagement photos and my eyes looked messed up and was really disappointing since our photographer was so expensive. I only wish I had found Hanna Choi sooner...

Hanna is awesome! She's professional, responsive, thorough, and very reasonably priced. As an Asian person, it's hard to find a makeup artist who can work on Asian eyes. Hanna did a beautiful job. She was able to keep me looking like myself but a lot more glamorous. It was so warm on my wedding day that I was worried I was going to sweat off the makeup but it lasted all day from our 12pm ceremony to our last song at midnight. In fact, it even looked good the next morning! (I was too exhausted to even wash my face). I recommend getting the airbrush makeup, it makes your skin look flawless and is incredibly light feeling. I am so happy that I booked Hanna and I definitely recommend her services.

Hanna did a beautiful job on my engagement and wedding makeup & hair. She listens to what my visions were and uses the most natural ways to bring out my features. On the wedding day she arrived on time (5am) and had my makeup and hair done in a timely matter. I would recommend Hanna for anyone that is looking for a makeup artist. She is very friendly and most of all she would make you feel so beautiful on your special day.

I do not recommend this company to anyone looking for a makeup/hair artist for their wedding. I am not giving Hanna a 1-star because she is not talented. My hair and makeup at my trial turned out nicely. I am giving her a 0-star review because of her lack professionalism and poor communication.

Here is the story:

I emailed Hanna to inquire about hiring her to do my makeup/hair on my wedding day on July 5th. She replied promptly saying that she was available...so, I set up a trial. The trial went well and I decided to book her. When we were emailing about the contract, she wrote that she would show up at 11AM. Prior to signing...I asked her several times if she could come earlier because 11 AM seemed too late but she kept saying that 11AM would be enough time. I decided to trust her since she is a "professional" and sent her a deposit for half of the cost.

As my wedding planning went on, my photographer said that they would like me to be ready earlier to get "first look" and family pictures. I emailed Hanna to ask if she could come at 9AM instead. Here is a summary of the chain of emails:

Email from me: "Hanna -I talked to my photographer and wedding coordinator. Can you come at 9AM to start?"

She first replied and said "My first assistant will be able to come at 9AM". I was confused because I had never met her first assistant or had talked about her with Hanna.

Hanna replied, "Oh sorry, I had you confused with someone else. I will be doing your wedding but can only be there at 11AM".

I asked nicely again, "Can you please come earlier? I would really like to get the pictures done earlier. Why are you unable to come early...do you have another wedding in the morning?"

Hanna replies, "I'm actually flying back from Japan that morning and will be doing your wedding right after I come back so I can't make it earlier than 11am unfortunately :("
