Hair, Makeup
Do you offer trials and consultations?
Yes
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes
Do you charge for trials?
Yes there is a fee for trials, this is where the work is done, we spend two hours with each client for hair and makeup. We go over color choices and styles before we begin. Then we execute what we have decided upon just as we would for your wedding day..Our goal is to ensure we have captured you vision, creating a look that will take his breath away. We will advise you to the masters, whether it is a facial, colorist or eye brow divas if needed. We will also go over pricing to eliminate any confusion. Our artist will take multiple pictures and make a color chart so the same exact look will be replicated on the day of the wedding.
Do you specialize in textured hair?
Yes we have a team of highly experienced stylists and artists that are able to work with every kind of hair texture and skin range.
Do you provide any specialty services? (airbrushing, hair extensions, etc.)
Lets face it who doesn't want FLAWLESS skin and DREAMY lashes so....Yes we offer many additional options such as airbrushing,LASH EXTENSIONS or false eyelashes, custom sized human hair clip-in extensions.
 
 Airbrush is the most fabulous form of foundation created.. it is light and magically flawless if applied correctly. Depending on your skin type it can last anywhere from 12 to 18 hours it is water resistant and transfer resistant. It can cover any scars, or tattoos tan lines. It does wonders on a decollate. The professional machines can adjust psi which is one of the secrets to the flawless finish.
 
 Lashes...No girl should be without them on her wedding day. We suggest lash extensions to most of our brides. Through the days leading up to and through your honeymoon you will wake up looking dreamy. Think about it no mascara either that is reason enough... your lashes look volumious, no makeup needed. 
 If you chose the traditional lashes we carry up to 15 types to custom create a lash, that is perfect for your style and look that will last. It is up to you, then let us work our magic.
Do you travel to the client on the day of the event? If yes, is there a fee?
Yes we do provide both in salon and on-location services. On location is our favorite way to take care of you. In the comfort of your suite, venue or home, we love to treat you as the queen you deserve to be on your day, surrounded by the people you love. Our travel fees are listed on our website.Travel fee is $50 per stylist with the San Luis Obispo County.
How many customers can you serve at one time if the bride were to book her entire bridal party? Are there discounts for doing so?
Well, we have quite an entourage of talent, we can accommodate any size bridal party, and make sure they all look consistently fabulous..
How far in advance should clients book your services?
Normally wedding planners and magazines advise brides to book their makeup artist 3 months in advance. Due to the quality of services we provide and our happy past brides and vendors, our clients reserve our artists as early as a year in advance to ensure our availability. We recommend booking 9-12 months in advance. But don't worry we have great resources even if you are our last minute bride.
What is your cancellation policy?
In order to hold your date we require a signed contract as well as a deposit. Any cancellations made within 90 days prior to the date will forfeit their deposit.

I had a wonderful experience with Jessi, who did my hair and makeup on my wedding day. She is an incredible talent, not to mention a friendly and calming presence, which is always helpful when nerves set in. Jessi also did makeup for four of my family members, while Laurie did hair for five family members. Both of them did a fabulous job. I especially loved how my Mom's hair and makeup came out, which she was nervous about as her first time having special-occasion styling done. Reeda does a great job of coordinating all her artists, and she worked a minor miracle for us when I ended up adding family members to the hair/makeup schedule, when it was originally only going to be me. She really came through for us in a last-minute pinch, and it meant so much to our families.

Hair and makeup was one of those things I left until the end... thankfully we were lucky enough to book the Queens bees. Jordy did a fantastic job on all of my girls hair, and I loved what she did on mine - especially considering I changed my mind the day of. Sara made everyone look beautiful, my girls loved how they looked, I couldn't have been happier. They actually finished a good 45 minutes ahead of time and it was easy to pay with their Square app. Very happy with their services!

I absolutely loved working with Reeda and Candance for my wedding last month! And here's why: Reeda, who didn't do any of my makeup/hair but was the owner of the business and put me in good hands with Candace, responded to my emails immediately, understood all of my concerns and was lovely to work with. Candace, who was the hands-on master of my makeup, was extraordinary. During my trial, she spend careful time making sure that what we were doing was right. She spend a long time on my eyes before realizing that the colors just weren't right, so without a fuss, she wiped it all off and started over again until we were both happy. It made me so comfortable knowing that she had a keen eye and wouldn't let me out of her sight until everything was picture perfect. The morning of the wedding, she was on time, professional, and killer talented. I looked great, if I do say so myself. And she also did my grandmother's makeup (as well as a few bridesmaids) and they all looked amazing. She was just so sweet with everyone.

I absolutely loved working with Reeda and Candance for my wedding last month! And here's why: Reeda, who didn't do any of my makeup/hair but was the owner of the business and put me in good hands with Candace, responded to my emails immediately, understood all of my concerns and was lovely to work with. Candace, who was the hands-on master of my makeup, was extraordinary. During my trial, she spend careful time making sure that what we were doing was right. She spend a long time on my eyes before realizing that the colors just weren't right, so without a fuss, she wiped it all off and started over again until we were both happy. It made me so comfortable knowing that she had a keen eye and wouldn't let me out of her sight until everything was picture perfect. The morning of the wedding, she was on time, professional, and killer talented. I looked great, if I do say so myself. And she also did my grandmother's makeup (as well as a few bridesmaids) and they all looked amazing. She was just so sweet with everyone. The gal she brought with her to do some of my girls' hair did a really, really great job as well. I would put my trust in anyone from The Queen's Bees any time! We had a blast together and I wish I could do it all over again. Read less

I can't give Queen's Bees a high enough rating. I have been in a lot of weddings and can honestly say this is the best hair and makeup team I've seen in action. I was so pleased with my, my mom, mother-in-law, and bridesmaid's hair and makeup. The whole team was fashionable, time efficient, flexible, and FUN to get ready with. When I wasn't sure what I wanted, they were very patient and provided suggestions. I highly recommend if you want to look good and feel great on your wedding day!

Where do I even begin my praise for Reeda, the fun, smart, and sassy founder of the Queen's Bees. I was incredibly lucky to have her do the makeup for my wedding day and she did an amazing job. I've never liked getting my makeup done in the past. It's always come out too cakey and me looking like I should be working on the streets. I told her my reservations and she blew me away. I looked like myself, but a much, much better version. She was so meticulous in making sure she got it just right and that everything was perfect. She was also so great to work with leading up to the wedding. She even checked in on me, making sure my drive back home to the bay area was okay, after my hair and makeup trial. Such a sweet and kind woman.

I was also privileged to have Jessi do my hair. She is such a kind and sweet person, with an edge about her that makes you know she'll get the job done. I have really thin hair but she magically made it look like I had added extensions. It lasted all night and the photos I've been getting from our photographer solidify her expertise because it looked perfect throughout the whole day and night.

The owner was very quick to respond and work with me to find the best fit for my needs. I did a hair and make up trail and once we were done the stylist and I talked about what we would do differently on the day of the wedding and she took pictures to remember. Well the day of the wedding she blew it out of the park. My hair was AMAZING!!!! It looked so good and my makeup was awesome! Also the stylists did an awesome job with my mom and made her feel so beautiful. They are 100% worth the cost, which was on the high end of my budget, but totally worth it!!

She made me look and feel so beautiful and sexy on my wedding day. Well worth the money if you want to look your absolute best.

The Queen's Bees are amazing!! Our photographer recommended them to me and after going for a consultation with Asha and having her do my hair/makeup for our engagement shoot, I knew she would be the perfect person to help us girls get beautiful on the big day!! She did my hair/makeup and all my bridesmaids and my mom's too! She did such a wonderful job helping each person create the unique look they were wanting and spent extra time re-visiting any little area we weren't 100% happy with. Not only did she make us all feel gorgeous on the big day, she was so fun too! She fit right in and truly added to the excitement! I usually hate having my picture taken, but after she worked her magic I was actually excited for the wedding pictures! I do not usually wear a ton of makeup and knew that my groom likes more of a natural look :) She listened to exactly what my vision was and I felt so comfortable with the look she created! My husband loved it too!!! :) If you are looking for someone to make you and your girls feel gorgeous on your special day, you should definitely go with the Queen's Bees (especially Asha). I am so happy I did!!

We hired Reeda to do make-up for my late March wedding based on a referral from our day-of coordinators. Reeda came to our hotel and despite enduring a knee injury on her way to us, was extremely professional and took care of us beautifully. She did the make-up for the Mother of the Bride/Groom as well, and it was so heartwarming to see them both so excited to receive the compliments they did (as two moms that don’t usually wear much make-up). Before our experience with Reeda, I had never felt hiring someone to do my make-up was worthwhile as it never seemed to turn out right, but Reeda made me look fabulous while still looking myself. I felt great and could focus on getting married and not how my face looked - she really nailed it! Highly recommend.

Reeda did an amazing job starting from the preview to determine the correct tones and looks and then to day of the wedding in prepping the bride and the bridesmaids. Everyone looks gorgeous that day. Reeda had such a calming and fun attitude it was like getting ready with a dear friend and not just a vendor. Skyla from The Queens Bees was in charge of the hair and she worked so amazingly to achieve the exact look for myself and my bridesmaid. When Reeda and Skyla were done I felt and looked the best I have had in my life. I felt like a princess. Reeda and her team were such a pleasure to work with all throughout the planning and they really listened to the wishes and desires of the bride to create the perfect vision. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of makeup or hair for their big day.

Thank you Reeda and Skyla!

I had my bridal hair and makeup done here as well as hair for my mom and bridesmaids. Everyone felt beautiful afterward and the girls got tons of compliments. The salon had an upbeat but relaxing atmosphere which made it great the morning of the wedding. Not stressful one bit. The glasses of complimentary champagne were also a nice touch! All the hairstyles were stunning. And although they were different for each gal, they were tied into one theme through the Queens Bees' creativity. Reeda on makeup was awesome. The eyelashes were super cute and flirty and overall, her touches kept my natural style with just a little added bazaam! to make it my wedding day look. Highly recommended!!

Reeda & Skylae surpassed my high expectations. Both extremely professional, i was impressed at how quickly they made everyone look so stunning. For Reeda specifically, my makeup was put on in the morning, but by 10pm that night it still looked great live and in all of the pictures. My family told me I looked more beautiful than they had ever seen me. Also, I was pleased that during our trial, Reeda took my feedback and helped me find a slightly different look for eye shadow. She didn't forget that and made sure she had what I needed for the day-of.
Skylae is a whiz at creating gorgeous up dos - I've never seen anyone move so quick to create an up-do that is absolutely stunning. For day-of, my hair was a half-up/half-down mix. Again, it still looked great by the end of the night. Both these gals deserved 5 stars for their expert work and professionalism.

We did my trial appointment for the wedding on the day of my engagement pictures, and when the pictures ended up getting rained-out after I had already had my make-up done, Reeda volunteered to do my make-up again for my rehearsal dinner! The day of, Reeda was a joy to have around. She did an AMAZING job and all of the girls looked great! I would highly recommend The Queens Bees services!

The Queen's Bees were nothing but friendly and professional right from the start. Since I am from out of town, all communication was easily done via email and telephone and everything turned out exactly how I always dreamed it would. I would recommend these ladies to anyone! Not only were the hair and make-up artists professional, they were also so very sweet and stinkin cute! Thanks again ladies!

Where do I even begin? From the start of hiring Queens Bees to do my wedding hair and makeup they were some of the most attentive and proactive ladies with whom I have ever done business.

Makeup:

Reeda does the makeup and, from the start, was extremely communicative. She sent me emails with many different makeup ideas/pictures she had found for me, based on what I described I wanted. As we went back and forth with pictures and ideas, she really listened to what I wanted and got the concept of the look I was going for. At the trial-run of my makeup she nailed the look completely. When I added a few (very minor) changes on my wedding day, she rolled with the punches and did an amazing job. I felt like a princess! My makeup was FLAWLESS and it stayed the entire day. Her technique is unbelievable and she zips through her shadow palette like a little face-Picasso! My eyes looked amazing! The kicker of it all was, on the day of my wedding, I was freaking out because I forgot to buy my garter/tossing garter. Reeda offered to drive me to the lingerie store when she was done with my makeup!!! Luckily, one of my trusty bridesmaids stepped in, but I was shocked and touched by that level of service. You are not just another client to Reeda - she takes a personal commitment and investment in making your wedding everything you want. Snap her up before she realizes she could be making the bigger bucks in LA!

Hair:

Skylae (pronounced Sky-luh) is simply the "Hair Whisperer". You know how you can get super-attached to your stylist, and then when either you move, or they move, you feel like you will never another stylist that love as much? Skylae is your woman! I have not found a stylist that I really liked since moving to the area 8 months ago. Skylae came as part of the package deal for wedding hair/makeup and I am SO glad I found her!!! She is more than a stylist, she is a hair architect. Not only was my hair STUNNING on the day of my wedding, I even went to her afterwards for the obligatory "wife chop" and she did an outstanding job lopping off my long locks and sculpting them into an adorable bob for my honeymoon! For my wedding I really wanted to wear my hair down, but due to the ruffley halter of my dress, had to wear it up and was bummed about that. Skylae gave me this gorgeous, curly, faux-bob that made me still feel like my hair was down. My husband LOVED it and got teary-eyed when he saw me. Skylae is very proactive with the hair-planning, both for weddings and for everyday wear. She gets great visions for what hair will suit you best, listens to what you want for your hair, and some how manages to churn out a stunning hairstyle. I recommend her not only for wedding, but as your main stylist!

These ladies deliver every bit of wedding excitement, service, and excellence that you deserve on one of the most special days of your lives - especially because how you looks is what will be in your wedding pictures for ever. This is one area to NOT compromise - hire the best for your day!!

Reeda did an outstanding job with my make-up. We tried out some looks and when I didn't like something she was right on top of it to start over and figure out what it was that I wanted. She does fantastic work and doesn't spend all day doing it either. Her quality of work was definitely worth the price. Thank you Reeda, for making me and my girls look beautiful!

Reeda did my makeup for my wedding, and OMG, when I looked in the mirror, I could not have been happier! She listened and perfected the natural look I so desperately wanted. I trust her 100%. She also did my mother's makeup and she was ecstatic in how it turned out. Reeda, you made me feel so beautiful, thank you! And you Reeda, are beautiful from inside out and bring that out in those around you. :)
I definitely recommend going with lash extension as well! They last through the honeymoon so I never even had to apply mascara. Woke up with gorgeous lashes everyday to bat at my new husband!

I loved Reeda and Skylae. My makeup was amazing, subtle yet bold. Reeda did a great job making sure my makeup stood out but did not overpower. Skylae is like a hair magician. I have very thin whispy hair and she made it look full. The day was relatively windy and my hair held in place the whole time, but never looked like it was stuck like that. All of my bridesmaids and my mother got their hair and makeup done also, which with seven bridesmaids could have been a mess. Everything was done timely and someone even stuck around at the very end and helped to fix up anyones hair or makeup that may have fallen or smudged during the morning.

Was nothing but pleased with Queen Bees and my sweet makeup gal Reeda! When I first met Reeda at my trial, she put me at ease and listened to exactly what I wanted! She stayed in contact over the next few months leading up to the wedding and on my special day she was prompt and did an amazing job! The time and effort she puts into your bridal look, is well above any thing I had ever seen. Not only did she make me feel like the most beautiful Bride, she also made me feel important! She came to our venue and after I was finished with pictures, touched me up right before I walked down the aisle! I am lucky enough to sit in her chair again in May, for my sister-in-laws wedding! Can't wait!

Of all our amazing vendors we worked with during our dream come true "Vintage Alice in Wonderland" wedding...it was the Bees that made me truly feel like an absolute QUEEN! Not only did I have so much fun getting bedazzled by them on our wedding day, but they became instant friends as they enthusiastically dolled me up for our engagement photos! The Queens Bees went ABOVE & BEYOND. They are not only extremely talented @ what they do best, but they brought a very special touch to our entire wedding planning and day of memory. In our e-shoot I felt whimsical and funky with crazy fun hair & makeup to fit our Tea Party theme, and on the actual wedding day I felt timelessly perfect. My husband Tim could hardly breath when he saw me for the first time @ the altar---and I owe that to the phenomenal Reeda & Skylae! I cannot wait to think of another excuse to be touched by the Bees in the future :) I miss you girls!

Big Warm Hugs,

I would recommend The Queens Bees to anyone and everyone wanting to look even more amazing than you already do.
I just need another reason to get my hair and makeup done by them again!

I got married in Pismo Beach but live in San Francisco, so needless to say, I was nervous about picking the right makeup artist in area I was less familiar with. I made the absolute best decision by hiring Reeda.

Reeda was more than just a makeup artist. She gave me great advice about my eyebrows and helped refer me to some places I could check out to ensure my eyebrows were wedding day ready. Also, she recommended an amazing hair stylist which I was thrilled with. Even when I mentioned that I have some spots of skin discoloration condition on my arm, Reeda was like "no problem, we'll just airbrush it". I was shocked and amazed at how the airbrushed makeup looked so natural and completely hid any spots I had. I really felt like Reeda listed to me and helped make me look picture perfect on my big day.

She was so professional and by far the best hiring decision I made on my wedding day (and I was fortunate to have a lot of great vendors). Reeda is an absolute genius and I continue to sing her praises well after my wedding.

Reeda and her team were truly amazing to work with, from start to finish.

I contacted Reeda about four months before my wedding, and she was more responsive than any other vendor I worked with. She gave me a comprehensive overview of their approach to beauty, and asked the right questions to understand my own style and what I was looking for, to make sure Queen's Bees was the right fit.

I asked to schedule my makeup trial on a day when they already had an early, busy day planned. Asha fit me in at the crack of dawn, as it was the only day I'd be able to be in town. She didn't rush me, and even though I was unsure of what I wanted, she suggested the exact right choices for me. My now-husband has always disliked the way false lashes look, something I told Asha ahead of time, and she found the alternative that not only looked great in pictures, but he LOVED.

On my wedding day, Asha and Laurie were on time to the minute and professional the entire day. My ladies looked gorgeous, and my very, VERY difficult to please mother even liked the way she looked. They were wonderful to hang out with and made the whole day run smoothly and on time.

I couldn't recommend these ladies more.

She gave me a comprehensive overview of their approach to beauty, and asked the right questions to understand my own style and what I was looking for, to make sure Queen's Bees was the right fit.

I asked to schedule my makeup trial on a day when they already had an early, busy day planned. Asha fit me in at the crack of dawn, as it was the only day I'd be able to be in town. She didn't rush me, and even though I was unsure of what I wanted, she suggested the exact right choices for me. My now-husband has always disliked the way false lashes look, something I told Asha ahead of time, and she found the alternative that not only looked great in pictures, but he LOVED.

On my wedding day, Asha and Laurie were on time to the minute and professional the entire day. My ladies looked gorgeous, and my very, VERY difficult to please mother even liked the way she looked. They were wonderful to hang out with and made the whole day run smoothly and on time.

I couldn't recommend these ladies more. Read less

I booked a Queens Bees' make-up artist through Faces salon for my wedding, and was assigned to Jennifer, who said she was new to the Queens Bees. She was absolutely wonderful. I was extremely nervous to have my make up done professionally, as I've had some bad experiences with make up artists making me look clownish, but Jennifer listened to me and was able to translate my instructions of "fresh, romantic, and understated" into a beautiful job. I looked polished but very much like myself -- exactly what I wanted. Everyone told me I looked gorgeous. I'm so glad I gave Faces and The Queens Bees a call!

Reeda and her girls were great! She helped me so much before the wedding with resources and ideas for the big day. I would use them again in a heartbeat, and we all loved our hair and makeup that day. You can't go wrong if you use Reeda and The Queen's Bees.

I had my hair and makeup done for my wedding by Queens Bee and I looked way better than I could have ever imagined!!! It was the best that I have ever looked in my life. The only reason I did not give them a perfect 5 was because for me they hard to get a hold of her because I live in another state and have long hours so it is difficult for me to work with vendors who prefer to talk on the phone over email. Overall, they were fantastoc and I would recommend them to anyone!!!!

Out of this world style! I couldn't have been more happy with how everyone's hair looked for our wedding. I was speechless with my hair and makeup and our photographer kept commenting on the spectacular job my stylist Asha did on my eyes.

Asha and Janina were so fun to work with and did a great job listening to what everyone wanted. I was very hesitant about having a stranger do my hair and makeup for our wedding but Asha exceeded my expectations.

I was very comfortable working with Reeda in booking our group. She was the only company that asked what I was looking for and asked me to send photos of myself, dress, and photos of hair and make-up I liked or didn't like. She doesn't just book your group she makes sure the right stylist is matched up with you.

The Queens Bees is growing like crazy and rightfully so because they do phenomenal work. My only frustration was with the contract process. It took quite a while to get it and then it would come back missing information such as people needing their hair done and other important details. It got to the point that I was frustrated with sending emails back and forth so I filled in the contract and sent it back. They may need to add an additional person to keep all of the administrative pieces in place.

Despite the contracting process, I would recommend them to everyone. No one can top the fun stylist that do amazing work!

The Queens Bees did a fantastic job with the entire bridal party's hair and makeup. There are some very talented individuals working with The Queens Bees! Along the way there were a few communication issues regarding timing of the trial and timing the day of the event, but Reeda went out of her way to make sure everything got set up just right. Everyone looked stunning!

The Queen's Bees provided hair design for our daughter's wedding. They were fun to work with, gave us the option of doing a trial ahead of time for the bride and both mothers, and did a beautiful job working on location to get us, and the 8 bridesmaids, looking our absolute best. Reeda also came through at the end by providing someone to do make-up, as one of our artists couldn't make it at the last minute. They were great!

The Queens Bees absolutely know what they are doing!!! Asha really listened to how I wanted my hair, which she hit right on the dot. Reeda really listed to how I wanted my makeup and made suggestions based on my skin. These ladies really know what they are doing and exceeded my expectations. However, flexibility was an issue to what was needed for our timeline, however it all worked out in the end.

I hate to give such nice and friendly people a sub-par review, but as a client, my expectations were not completely met. I got my hair done for my wedding, I did a trial, and I had three bridesmaids and the mother of the groom all get there hair done by Lindsey. As far as timing goes, she rocked it! Everyone was done with time to spare and she did it all herself, which saved me some money from having to hire another girl just to come out and do the prep curls. I paid to get the trial done, which I did not initially want to do, however, under the coaxing of my friends I thought it would be a good idea. i LOVED my trial hair. She did a gorgeous job, listened to my vision and was about to add her own creative spin. She was fun to have around and we had a blast just chatting. Lindsey took photos of my trial and emailed them to me and kept some for her record. On the day of the wedding, I did not find the need to go over the hair style again. I thought she knew exactly what I wanted. She did not ask me again about what I wanted. The key thing to the hairstyle was that it was half up half down with a hidden briad in the back. Unfortunately Lindsey totally forgot to add the braid in, which was my favorite part of the style. It was not fixable and i ended up not having the hair do I had envisioned for my wedding day, and it cost me $175 too. This being said, I did look gorgeous and the hair looked very good and beautiful it just wasnt what I paid for. All the bridesmaids and the mother of the groom loved their hair and were very happy with Lindseys service. I would still recommend Lindsey to a friend, under the pretense that you must be very specific about the details of what you want. Additionally, while Reeda was very responsive via email, she did accidentally send an email to me that was intended for Lindseys eyes only. It was very unprofessional, especially because the context of the email was inappropriate for a client to see.
