I got married on July 26, 2014. I had Jessica and Heidi do make-up and hair for 5 of us girls. I was thrilled with how everyone looked. One of my bridesmaids has very thick hair that is difficult to style. I was impressed with how they had her hair curled. For the first time in years, it looked perfect. Jessica and Heidi were also fun to work with. We felt comfortable with them and were able to be honest about what we liked or didn't like. I highly recommend Studio FBJ and would be more than happy to provide pictures to anyone who wants to see the amazing job they did!

I got married on July 26, 2014. I had Studio FBJ do our hair and makeup. Heidi and Jessica came out to the wedding location and did everything. I was beyond impressed with the hair and make up jobs on us. I have one bridesmaid with very thick, bushy hair. I was worried about what her hair would look like but it turned out amazing....the first time I have ever seen it look good. Jessica and Heidi were easy to talk to and comfortable to be around. Their wonderful work made my wedding day so much better. I could relax while we got ready knowing everyone was going to look beautiful. I would be more than willing to provide pictures to anyone who wants to see the amazing job they did.

This team is super great! Rhea Clare was super responsive via email and my stylist, Brandi, couldn't have been sweeter. She was all about enhancing what you've already got and I really appreciated that after a bad experience with another hair and makeup stylist. I still felt like "me" and I felt beautiful! She also did a wonderful job with my mother's hair and make-up. Thanks so much, Studio FBJ for a wonderful job well done!! :)

Joy and her staff were fantastic to work with and really helped the planning process go smoothly! She was always very responsive to my emails. I had a great experience at my consult and knew right away that I wanted her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. My hair and makeup looked AMAZING on my wedding day. My bridesmaids, mom and mother in law also really loved their hair and makeup. I would absolutely recommend Studio FBJ to anyone looking for a hair/makeup artist for their wedding! I can't thank them enough for helping to make my wedding day so special!

Joy and her partner were prompt, professional, super fun and provided a very high quality product. My girls and I were able to have her travel to our home for a very reasonable price. They arrived on time and actually finished a little early. She and Jenn perfectly balanced their professional opinion with our preferences. Every email, phone and personal interaction before and including the day of with Joy was pleasant and flexible (I changed my count on her 3 times!). I never felt pressured or rushed at any point of my experience with Joy (including the trial). Our hair and makeup turned out beautifully and stayed the entire evening. I was nervous about having hair AND makeup done by the same person (thinking that there was no way someone could be that good at both), but she was excellent!! It was also incredibly convenient to be able to have hair AND makeup done with the same company, financially and in terms of coordination. I would hands down recommend Joy and her team for hair and makeup.

Joy did my hair + make-up, as well as the hair for my bridesmaids! Joy was so amazing! I did a trial with her and she was so relaxed and helpful and made me feel relaxed as well. I LOVED the hairstyle that she did for me! We tweaked my make-up a little bit from when we did a trial run, and she was completely on-board and knew what I wanted! She is so wonderful and really listens to what you want. My bridesmaids loved their hairstyles too! Everyone RAVED about how good my hair and make-up looked. Joy is so much fun to work with and is so so great. Thank you Joy!

I cannot say enough good things about Joy and her team! She and her mother did the hair and make up of my bridesmaids, my mother, and the mother of the groom. Everyone looked amazing and felt beautiful! When it came to be my turn, they really exceeded my expectations and made me look and feel like a million bucks! I've never felt so gorgeous in my life! Not only that, but my hair and makeup photographed beautifully! They really know what they're doing! Not only are they good at what they do, but they are adorable people who are a lot of fun to talk to and work with (and how sweet is it that they are a mother-daughter team?!)! I enjoyed every second I spent getting to know Joy, both at my pre-wedding trial and on the big day itself:) Do yourself a favor and hire this fabulous woman! You won't regret it! Thanks again Joy!

Joy was awesome. I met her for a consultation a few weeks before our wedding and loved everything she did. I fell in love with airbrush makeup! Our wedding was on 9-21-12, and one of my bridesmaids ended up asking her to do her makeup as well. I felt beautiful on the most special day of my life - and the makeup truly lasted all night long! I didn't need to touch up hardly anything - I used my own lipgloss and blush to touch up but that was it. Her prices are great, I would definitely call her again!

I had a fantastic experience working with Faces by Joy! I love makeup, & I was having an evening wedding with a masquerade ball as my theme so Joy was able to give me dramatic eye makeup while still making me look like a bride.

She was extremly patient with me as we made little tweeks to my look & I worked together to create the perfect color palette for myself & my bridesmaids. I couldnt decide how to style my hair & joy was so patient & flexible, letting me experiement with different types of cuirls & various up-do. She really went the extra miles to make sure that I was happy with every decision. She is a true professional & a sweetheart to work with!

All of my ladies looked absolutely breathtaking!

Faces by Joy did my hair and makeup for my wedding day, as well as my two bridesmaids' hair and makeup. Marci was my main hair stylist and makeup artist and she was absolutely fabulous!! She did a great job during the trial run in October (wedding was the next June) and even though it was awhile until I saw her again on the day of the wedding and I changed my mind about my hairstyle, she did just as great of a job! Her and her assistant came to our hotel room, which was so convenient and relaxing for us and even when we wanted to change things they had already done, they were extremely accommodating. Marci you did a wonderful job and I loved having you be a part of my wedding day!

Joy did the hair & makeup for me and my bridal party, and we all were so happy with the result! Joy and her mom were professional, fun, and efficient. They were able to squeeze in a few extra services the day of the wedding and still had us done early. She helped us all look and feel very beautiful, and all of our makeup & hairstyles lasted late into the night, despite humid weather. I would recommend Joy for anyone looking for a hair & makeup artist in the area. Thank you Joy!!

I can not thank you enough for the way you made me look for my wedding day! The make-up was perfect and you totally nailed the hairstyle I wanted. And the tattoo cover was AMAZING!! People who didn't know about it before were shocked to learn there was a BLACK tattoo hiding on my shoulder. I was worried the tattoo would distract from my dress, but thanks to your skill it got the attention it deserved. My maid of honor was very happy with her make-up, also. She doesn't wear make-up often and she was worried about not looking like herself. When I asked her how she felt about it she said it was great. She said she felt comfortable and not over-done, and the experience was much less painful than with whoever did her make-up when her brother got married, haha. I can not wait for an occasion to use your services again and will recommend you to every one!

Joy is a fabulous hair and make up artist. She really works magic on you. She knows what she is doing and you can tell that she loves it. She is very pleasant to be around. She will make your day unforgetful. I love her work and her joyus nature. (Thank you Joy for making me feel like a princess on my engagement day. Everyone loved my hair and make up :) )

Working with Joy was a wonderful experience. My daughter's hair and makeup looked beautiful and flawless for her portrait and her wedding day. Joy created exactly the picture that my daughter had in mind. Even after dancing the night away at the reception, her hair and makeup looked fresh and pretty. In addition to being terrific at what she does, Joy is so kind we felt like we were getting ready for the wedding with a good friend. We will recommend Faces by Joy to anyone who is looking for someone to help them feel beautiful on their special day.

Joy was a pleasure to work with! She was very accomodating with my schedule for our consultation, and she was great on the day of the wedding too. She came early, toting several suitcases of makeup and hair supplies, and got hair and makeup done for my whole wedding party without a single hiccup. Joyce was great working on hair too, and I couldn't be more pleased with the whole experience.

To put it bluntly, God gave Joy the talent of makeup!!! Among other things... a caring heart, patience, and enthusiasm.

Three days before my wedding my mother accidently broke her nose.
Yes, for real broker her nose.

Last minute around midnight the evening of the incident I was balling my eyes out writing and pleading to her to see if she could help us.
The next morning way before the normal time people get up, she had already replied. She sure was our saving grace...

A rating of "5" does not do Faces by Joy justice. On a scale of 1 to 10, she is one million! "Joy" fits her because that is exactly what she is to work with. Professional, sweet, down to earth and amazing at what she does. I was nervous as I do not wear make-up outside of lipstick and eyeliner on a regular basis. Never had professional make-up done, so I was not sure what to expect but knew I was in great hands. When I looked in the mirror I was BLOWN AWAY! She enhanced what was already there and took it to another level. She has a great eye and talent for make-up application. I could not stop staring at myself in the mirror and did not want to wash the make-up off. I was constantly receiving compliments (and still now with the pictures I have) on how great I looked and I owe it all to Joy. I promise if you book with Faces by Joy, she will NOT disappoint. I cannot wait to work with her again!

I worked with Brandi and Kat from Studio FBJ for my hair and make up. My trial went perfectly and it really didn't take much to get my style down quickly, despite the fact that I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted. Brandi was able to take minimal instruction and really make something beautiful out of it. Brandi did both my hair and make up on the wedding day, while Kat did the make up for everyone else. All of my bridesmaids and family were thoroughly impressed. They both kept it classy all the way. Having had a number of other bad experiences with other companies, I was really amazed at their ability to keep it natural and light-looking and not go overboard with anyone. They were a pleasure to work with and really professional.

The only reason for the half star on flexibility was that my wedding venue owner wanted them to arrive at 9 am to set up but my coordinator at FBJ was insistent on 8:30. It all worked out okay in the end, but there was a bit of a back and forth regarding times for set up and getting bridesmaids in the chair. The truth is that this rigidity is borne from having tons of brides push back and then be late on their wedding day, and it is a result of their years of experience making sure brides get to the altar on time. So, it's really not a bad inflexibility. However, I am just noting it here as it was something I needed to deal with a bit last minute. I would simply ensure you check with your wedding venue owner in advance about set-up time, which I had not done.

Overall, it was a great experience to work with this team and I would absolutely recommend them to any bride.

Just had my hair and makeup trial with Jessica at Studio FBJ yesterday! Jessica tried not one but two completely different hairstyles with me and even stayed a little later than our allotted time to do so. She was open to all of the little tweaks I was looking for to create my look. She paid so much attention to all the details! She made sure my makeup looked right in natural light and that my hair was securely pinned enough to stay up. Looking so forward to the wedding day after the lovely experience.

Joy did such a great job on my hair & makeup! She's super creative and very easy to work with. We got along so well. The first time we met was for my initial consult and Joy spent so much time with me to make sure the look we finished with was exactly what I wanted. She has amazing products and puts them to good use! Joy's mom is a professional hair stylist and did the bridesmaids' hair - she was great! Overall, we had a great experience with Joy and would definitely recommend her to any bride!!! Thanks for everything Joy!

The one disappointing experience of my wedding was the hair & make up. When I went to my consultant appt, it was great & the beautician was friendly. However, when it was time to pay, the price was different than on my contract. Prices had gone up & there was no way for her to charge me the price in my contract. Then it came to scheduling my big day. My ceremony was at 5 &we needed to be ready by 3. FBJ insisted that hair/make-up must begin by 9:00. We had 4 girls doing make up, 6 doing hair, my bridal hair & make-up, & my mom's short hair. I've been a part of many weddings, none requiring such a long hair/make-up window, so I inquired about the length of each service & was told about 30 minutes each. I then had to create my own schedule & argue with FBJ to get our time pushed back. We were all very concerned about our hair/make-up fading when sitting around all day. We were also told that we had someone to do make-up only & someone to do hair only & that they had to start at the time because they ride together, which was not the case at all. The day came & the ladies were on time and very friendly. The problems began when the girls had issues with their hair falling out at 1:00. The make-up lady could not leave fast enough, even getting annoyed when my bridesmaids went to bring my groom his present instead of putting on their lipstick at 1:00. Again, why apply lipstick at 1:00 for a 5:00 ceremony? My hair stylist used the wand to curl my hair & wanted to leave it down. At my consult, I showed her a picture of how I wanted my hair half pulled back, she was able to do that, & I even texted pictures to her so she would remember. I guess she forgot & she did do it for me. My mom's hair was a disgrace! My bridesmaids couldn't even tell anyone did her hair & they ended up redoing it - I paid $75 for one awkward curl in the back of her head. EVERYONE'S hair did in fact fall out, EVEN MINE! In post-ceremony pictures my hair was all out. I have curled my own hair better.

Studio FBJ Weddings responded with the following comments:

We as a company are very sorry to hear that you feel you had a bad experience with us. In reference to the consultation, you were not overcharged the credit machine was set to the new price and the artist had trouble changing it but said she could have the card run later, however you told the artist to go ahead and run it and take the extra $10 for tip. As far as planning the day of, we feel that we went above and beyond to ensure that you were completely satisfied. We did push arrival time back an hour and added an extra hairstylist so that everyone would be ready on time. The makeup artist left behind lip samples for everyone to touch up with, the hairstylist even provided Rhine stone Barrets for everyone. The makeup artist may have left after completing makeup, however the other two artist stayed until 3pm to provide a last call for touch ups and to ensure everyone was happy. As a company policy we do not leave until everyone says they are satisfied with their hair and makeup. If anything was mentioned about being dissatisfied during this time we would have been more than happy to fix it; however everyone seemed to be completely happy with hair and makeup. Again, we are very sorry that you were dissatisfied with our services.
