Vivi was recommended to me by a friend, who also used her for another wedding event. I was scrambling to find a hairstylist almost at the last moment, because things didn't work out with my original stylist. Vivi came through for me and was available on my wedding day. She is very kind and personable, and the quality of her work made me feel at ease to know I was looking beautiful on my wedding day. She also did my daughter's hair, and made my little girl look like a princess. The overall experience with Vivi was great, and I would work with her again.

I recently got married, and decided on the day (Nov 10th) with only a month's time to prepare! Needless to say, there were many things to plan- my beauty (hair and make up) being one of the most important. After shopping around for hair/makeup stylists who would travel in the SF Bay area, I found Vivi and was thrilled with her rates. Compared to other traveling stylists, she charges at least $100 less, while delivering professional results. I checked out her website before making set plans, and Vivi also offered a trial run, but I decided to just "wing it" the day of the ceremony. Vivi arrived on time (early even), and carried with her all of the equipment necessary to make me look great! She was very attentive, and listened to all of my thoughts before starting the hair and makeup. I had never worn false eyelashes before, but Vivi insisted they would look great in pictures, and was totally right! My hair stayed in place throughout the entire day and night, and even after sweating and crying in my makeup, my face looked just as put-together at midnight as it did in the afternoon! Perhaps most impressive of all, Vivi has a a sweet and calming demeanor that put me and my nerves at ease. Getting ready together in my hotel room before the ceremony was the best medicine for nervous tummy! I am so grateful for the professional and affordable experience Vivi provides. Don't waste your money on the other services in the area- Vivi is the best!

I got married last September and Vivi did my hair and makeup. I was so lucky I found her! She's really an angel from the heavens! I was so worried I couldn't find someone who can really give me "that perfect blooming bride" look, at the same time, affordable and not overpriced! not only she did a very great job with my hair and makeup but everyone told me how gorgeous I was that day! and what's really amazing was that, she has no idea about my dress but my whole look really goes perfect with my wedding dress too! it was classy and elegant. She's very professional and very easy to talk to. She's very helpful too, she even helped me tie my sash. She's like my bridesmaid. Shes super duper nice. I highly recommend her excellent skills and creativity in hair & makeup services.

Vivi was amazing! She did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it was flawless all day! She was able to completely understand my vision and turn it into a reality. I have impossible thick long hair and she was able to do my hair and makeup effortlessly! I felt (and looked) like a goddess!!! I could not recommend her any higher! I wish I had more excuses to have her make me over! Not only is she incredibly talented and well trained but she is the most pleasant person! Even keeping in touch after our wedding to see how our honeymoon was! She is an angel!!!! As soon as you meet her, you will want to be best friends!

Vivi was completely flexible, and able to turn my unintelligble murmurings of what I wanted into a style far beyond my expectations. The look I had was classic, understated, but also a far better rendition of myself-- and didn't look bare, or under or overdone. And, the hair and makeup were SOLID: no touchups needed! she also managed to make my incredibly short pixie cut look chic, which is commendable as I just don't have much hair to work with.

Also, throughout the entire process she was professional, timely with feedback, easy to work with, and managed to please my non-English speaking Chinese mother and mother in law as well (totally takes talent here; that is a really tough demographic to work with!!).

I would recommend her to anyone who needs makeup and hair services. Cash only, which is typical, and her prices are extraordinarily fair.

Vivi did my make-up and hair for my wedding in August 2011. She also did makeup and hair for my bridesmaids and mom. Everyone really loved their look and I got a lot of compliments on my look as well! Even the photographer said it looked really nice and photographed well. The make-up really lasted all night which was great because I didn't have to waste any time during the whirlwind of a night touching up my makeup. Vivi struck the right balance between perfection and timeliness. She spent a lot of time making sure that everyone looked great and did not rush through the job--but at the same time really stuck to the schedule and did not fall behind at all. We were ready right on time and so did not have to stress, rush in the end, or keep the guests waiting. I would definitely recommend Vivi!

Vivi is wonderful! I was actually looking to book with another makeup artist, but because she was already booked for my wedding day, she recommended Vivi- and I'm glad that she did!

Vivi is an extremely nice and wonderful person. She knew exactly what I wanted and how to do it. My bridesmaids also looked gorgeous! Vivi is definitely an expert at her job and I would absolutely recommend her for anyone who needs a hair and makeup artist on their special day!

Vivi was great! She was very professional and made the whole wedding party look beautiful! Along with an assistant, she did the hair and make-up of 5 bridesmaids, the bride, and the mother of the bride the morning before the wedding. It was very laid-back and relaxing, and everybody was very happy and looked great in pictures. She was also very responsive- in the trial, I felt I looked a little too glam for our late afternoon outdoor wedding, so for the actual wedding she scaled it back and I looked great.

Also, most importantly, she is extremely affordable compared to most of the hair and make-up artists in the bay area!

Vivi did an excellent job on the hair and make-up for myself and my bridesmaid for my wedding. She was very easy to work with, responsive to my questions and provided useful information that I didn't even know I needed. After my trial session, she easily incorporated additional changes to my look for the wedding. She arrived promptly (actually, a little early!) to my site for the wedding preparations, was extremely organized and very professional.

Vivi was very conscientious in making me look absolutely beautiful. With a picture for inspiration, she created an amazing updo (classic, romantic, without looking overly done). Her make-up application was like painting, carefully and pain-stakingly blending colors and shades. Leave lots of time in your wedding schedule so she can do her best work!

I had no idea I could look that good, and I got a new lipstick color on her recommendation, since it was so perfect!

Vivi did such a phenomenal job on my hair & make-up. I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life. I know that I'm going to treasure that feeling forever. One of my friends said that I was more beautiful than any doll she'd ever seen, and I got so many compliments from everyone at my wedding. Thanks, Vivi!!
