RheaClare with Studio FBJ was my hair & make-up artist for both my Trial and Wedding Day. I was very specific about how I wanted my eyeliner to look, and RheaClare was very patient and really listened to my requests and went step by step to make sure my makeup was exactly how I wanted. I felt beautiful on my wedding day, which is exactly how you should feel! My bridesmaids also enjoyed being pampered on the wedding day and RheaClare and Tia did an amazing job with their hair! All 5 of them looked gorgeous.

RheaClare & Heidi:

On behalf of Lisa and the rest of the bridal party, thank you for doing an excellent job on our hair and makeup on Saturday! You both aimed to enhance our individual beauty with your knack for natural makeup. We appreciate your efficient and professional services from the moment we contacted you and all throughout the big day. You and Heidi were a "joy" to be around (no pun intended-lol)! I loved that you were both sweet and accommodating. Thank you again for letting us relax and feel comfortable during the whole process. Your easy going attitudes allowed us to enjoy our time with Lisa on her special day.

Faces by Joy are definitely pros when it comes to hair and makeup!!! :)

Sincerely,
Gina

Studio FBJ was everything I could have asked for. I had 11 people getting hair and makeup done- 7 bridesmaids, myself, my mother and MIL, and a "groomsmaid," so we were a pretty daunting group. RheaClare did all of the hair while Heidi did the makeup, and they did it on site at the wedding venue. My girls and I even arrived at the venue a little late (we had to stop at Starbucks... hahaha) and RheaClare and Heidi made up the time difference and even had us finished a bit early. RheaClare even curled the flower girl's hair at the last minute, even though we hadn't planned on that. They were professional but also fun (we had a blast with our cheesy music playlist), and everyone looked gorgeous. The lighting in the room at the venue was pretty rough, so as we went outside we saw that there were lines in some of our airbrushed foundations which couldn't be seen in the room. Heidi graciously went over everyone's makeup to make certain that there were no lines, and in the end everyone was perfect. My hair even stayed up-- which is a huge deal! My hair doesn't do anything, and it was absolutely stunning! My mom also hates having her hair done, because it's very fine and thin and never stays, and even she loved her hair. Many of us got the fake lashes as well, and I CANNOT recommend them enough. The lashes were gorgeous!! The beauty team really worked with us and made everyone feel pampered and beautiful. All of our hair and makeup survived through the wedding and reception, looked stunning in pictures, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a one-stop-shop for your wedding beauty!

Overall amazing experience. First of all, RheaClare is insanely prompt at emails. She prepares you well for your trail appointment. I was actually underwelmed with my first trial, but within 12 hours the owner, Joy, called me to reassure me everything would be fine BEFORE my wedding day. She worked with me until I was satisfied and never made me feel like I had to settle on my appearance for my wedding day. The day of the wedding, Joy and Brandi came to our venue and set up on time and got through my bridesmaids and myself right on time! My bridesmaids are pretty girls, but Joy and Brandi made everyone look gorgeous. I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day. This company is incredible and I suggest you only go with them for your beauty needs for your wedding day!

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!! :)
