It was absolutely amazing working with Sarah Ali for my valima in Houston. I didn't know the area and my friend recommended her highly. I couldn't have been more happy with the way everything turned out! She was on time, supportive, kind and very professional. The makeup was phenomenal and she was able to help me arrange my henna the night before. Would recommend her without any hesitation!

I used Sarah Ali of Transformation Studio for my South Asian wedding last summer. I'm late with this review, but that doesn't take away from the amazing job that she did with my wedding day makeup, hair and dupatta setting. I was thrilled with how I looked and so was my husband. I received so many compliments that night. I was ready to go by 5pm for both the ceremony and reception and my makeup looked just as fresh at 2am when our wedding finally wound down.

Sarah came to my wedding location which definitely eliminated a lot of the stress. She was professional, fast, and calm, which in turn helped keep me calm as we got closer to the ceremony. I did a makeup trial about a month prior to the wedding, so I knew that would look good. I provided very little direction on my hair (updo, please!) and was so pleased with how that turned out. She uses top of the line makeup mixed with her own line of products (Chamak) which were great. I used my Chamak lipstick and lip gloss for months after my wedding.

All in all, I was incredibly pleased with my Transformation Studio experience. Sarah is talented and incredibly friendly and I would recommend her and Transformation Studio without reservation.

Hi there

Thanks so much for writing this review for your wedding service. So glad to know you enjoyed our services and products. ;) We just read it years after you posted, since this account was not very active. I was hoping you could copy and paste this to our new business page: Chamak Cosmetics & Chocolates, as we have expanded our business focusing on wellness only at the transformation studio and moved beauty and our product line to a new location. we are going to actually close down our the transformation studio page and would hate to lose such a wonderful review. We just created a page and have no reviews on wedding wire.

Sarah overall was a delight to work with but she came late to both my wedding and reception and therefore I was unable to take any pictures before the events. This was very dissapointing. The quality of her service is great and she does the job of a makeup artist well. I would just make sure to have her come earlier than what you plan and also make sure you ask her to try the foundation prior to the wedding.

Hi, This client was friendly and sweet and I also enjoyed working with her. She has great features and I loved her bridal gowns and the locations, they were inspiring for me as an artist. I even gave her a generous discount when she booked in order for her to help spread word about my new business. Im quite surprised by this review and feel its necessary to dispute it. My hairstylist actually arrived early both days to get the bride and her mother's hair started. The bride booked the timing of our services in the contract months before the date, and one day before the 2nd event requested for us to change her time of booking to an hour earlier, I told her we would do our best to come earlier. My hairstylist was able to get there earlier, but I had an aptmt at the studio so I was not able to arrive earlier then the set time of 2pm, so because I couldnt come early and arrived on time, that cannot be called being late. On the first day, I got lost on the way to the hall mainly because the directions were incorrect and nobody in Chateau Polonez was answering their phone, then upon arrival, their gates would not open. I apologized to the client about that. Other vendors also experienced that problem that day. Despite the minor delay, I finished my work in the exact time that I was booked for in the contract. I was working on the mother's makeup when the photographers came to do her shoot, so Im not sure why she wasnt able to take pics before the event on the first day.

(I was contacted by Chateu Polonez in Sept 2010 after they read this review and informed us that they do not have business office hours during event days. She stated that the bride was asked to provide them with a vendor list so they could forwad vendors the gate code & detailed directions and a map. The client had not sent her vendors that email. The getting lost situation therefore would have never occured if I had received the proper information)

On the second day, I completed both makeup applications in the time alloted in my contract. My hairstylist spent 5 hours on the client and her mother's hair, trying to get it exactly the way they wanted it, without charging any overtime, as many other vendors would have done. My stylist on average takes 45 minutes to an hour to do updo's. The bride could have had her hair done 1st both days, but she wanted to get her hair done after the makeup. We always recommend brides to get their hair done first and then cater to the rest of the party. If that is the reason that the client was not able to get her pictures taken, that cannot be blamed on the vendor. Thanksgiving weekend we were booked solid, so it was impossible for me to go past my alotted time with this client, and cause her to be late because since I myself had to be to my studio right after on both days. We are almost always on time or early to our appointments. We take our work very seriously. It is a special honor to be a part of a bride's day, and the last thing we would ever want to cause any delays. Because we take care of our customers and try to do our best, we have 77 positive reviews of our business on Citysearch within the first 8 months of our business. Sincerely, Sarah Owner, The Transformation Studio
