Rieko did both hair and makeup for myself, my three bridesmaids, and the mother of the groom. Everyone looked amazing. She was recommended to me by two of my friends (one of whom is Wendy, below) and I couldn't be happier with her.

I gave Rieko general verbal ideas via email of the type of hair and makeup I wanted, and she executed the ideas beautifully. She and her assistant were also excellent with all the other ladies, all of whom have very different facial features and hair lengths/types. I scheduled my trial for the day of my engagement shoot and was extremely pleased. It was a hot and humid late-June day and my hair and makeup stayed put. The same with the wedding day makeup - it stayed put for 8 hours. I wasn't so lucky with the wedding day hair, but that's my bad for going outside in a windstorm with 100% humidity - my waves blew out and my hair settled in a tously beachy style. It still looked good though!

I shopped around for a makeup artist who was also a hairstylist and was disappointed with the dearth of results. Those who did do both charged exorbitant prices. Rieko is an expert at both and she won't extort you. She is easy to work with and very accommodating as well. You can't ask for more!

Rieko is amazing!! I met her through my best friend who was getting married, and she did such an incredible job with my makeup that I was so glad she was available for my wedding. She was so patient with me even though I was struggling to decide what I wanted, and even scheduled multiple trials with me to make sure I was happy. She won't force any looks on you and gives you exactly what you want. Thanks rieko !!

Rieko did a wonderful job on me and one of my bridesmaids (hair and make-up). Many people commented on my unique hairstyle, in a positive way.
However, on my mother, the make-up was not as well-executed. She made my mom's eyes appear smaller than they actually were.
It may have been because my mother was the last person to go, and so Rieko was tired by then.

The assistant that she brought with her was not so good with my other two bridesmaids. It may have been a language barrier that prevented my bridesmaids from getting the hairstyles that they originally wanted.

One last point, it was nice that Rieko and the assistant agreed to train travel to get to my wedding site, and did not require private car service.
