Hannah and Laticha were the best team to work with!! They got myself, my mom, my two bridesmaids and our two flower girls ready quickly but with great quality. Our morning was definitely more fun because we spent it with them. My hair is super long and thick and NO ONE has EVER been able to get it to hold a curl; with their skill my hair held for over 12 hours! (probably would have held forever if i hadn't showered). I couldn't have asked for a better team and i got so many compliments on how beautiful i looked it was unreal.

I really like working with Hannah. I don't do anything to my hair on a daily basis, and I normally wear makeup maybe twice a year, when I was looking at three hair/makeup artists recommended to me by a wedding consultant, I really like the natural feel of Hannah's work. Her prices were very competitive, and after the trail run, I knew she was the perfect choice for me. She was very down to earth, and was able to zero in on what I wanted when I didn't even know what I wanted and couldn't give much guidance. She did my hair and makeup, hair for my 3 bridesmaids and my mom, and at the last minute, she was able to fit in some quick hair appointments for my mother in law and her sister too.

She did run a bit late the morning of the wedding, traffic happens, but I had been sure to allocate time generously so it just meant I got a bit more time at my family brunch! From my professional background in event planning, I know how much a lot of people who don't plan huge events on a regular basis can underestimate the time it takes to do anything with a group, and how many brides have planned an event on the scale of a wedding before? Plus, stuff happens. Nothing anyone can do about it. No need to stress about it if you planned accordingly though. If your wedding can't handle a 15 minute delay somewhere, I think that is probably your problem rather than a problem with any of your vendors.

In any case, a few days earlier, when I had asked her about adding my MIL and her sister to the list of people to do hair for, she put one of her colleagues "on call" just in case she needed her, which I really appreciated. It is little stuff like that where it really helps to have hired a professional with connections to other professionals, rather than a friend of a friend who just really likes doing hair. In the end, Hannah ended up finishing plenty early, and we all looked beautiful. I absolutely love the way my hair and makeup turned out, and I really liked working with Hannah.

I would NOT recommend Urbanista Weddings for hair and makeup on your wedding day or any day for that matter. Initially, Hannah was accommodating over the phone, but when it came down to actually providing services on my wedding day, I was extremely disappointed. I made sure upfront that Hannah knew I had 11 bridesmaids and that I would need more than one makeup/ hair artist on my wedding day. Hannah reassured me that she would have 2 other makeup/hair artists helping out and that everyone would be ready on time for the ceremony. Allison did our hair and makeup on my wedding day, which actually ended up being the best thing. On the day of my wedding, Allison showed up on time and immediately began doing 2 of my bridesmaid’s makeup/hair. Because of time, Allison then proceeded to do my hair and makeup. It was two hours before the ceremony and still 9 of my bridesmaids needed their hair and makeup done. Allison reassured us that at any time, Hannah and her other makeup artist would be showing up. Another 30 minutes went by and no sign of Hannah. The other 9 bridesmaids took matters into their own hands and began their hair/makeup because it appeared Hannah wasn’t going to show up anytime soon. Finally, an hour before the ceremony, Hannah and her assistant came bursting into the room, and by this time all but 2 of my bridesmaids were finished with their hair and makeup. Thank goodness most of my bridesmaids ended up doing their own hair and makeup because there is no way Hannah and her assistants would’ve been able to finish everyone in one hour! Come to find out Hannah was late because the bride before me was not satisfied with their work so she made Hannah redo her look which set them back! So the bottom line is: I would avoid working with Hannah- she is unorganized, unprofessional, and just plain rude. Hannah does not take any accountability for her actions, which you can see from her counterarguments here. She turns everything around on the customer (bride).

I have to say, I cannot understand the VERY FEW negative ratings for Urbanista Weddings, especially Hannah, as I had nothing but great service from this professional and charming lady. Maybe a little bit of "bridezillas?" From the first moment of communication and scheduling for my trial run to the most important day of my life, I was completely and inexplicably cared for and made to feel special. As I am a more mature woman, my makeup required a little extra care to cover wrinkles and age spots. By the time Hannah was finished with me, I looked 10 years younger! You all should have seen the look I got from my groom! And the hair looked fabulous as well. By the time Hannah and her assistant were done, every single female in the party looked stunning! I could not believe the service she provided for the price, I can't remember any other time when I got so much for so little! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone, as I just loved her style, sense of humor, and her professionalism throughout the whole process. She made my very special day even more special! Thank you Hannah!

Nicole did hair and make-up for my three bridesmaids and myself. She was fabulous to work with! She made us all look beautiful and with plenty of time to spare. Nicole was very sweet and easy to work with. She created a beautiful fingerwave hairstyle for me, made me comfortable with fake eyelashes that still looked natural, and was patient with me to find the perfect lip color.

I’m so glad I picked Urbanista Weddings for my wedding after weeks of research and comparisons on MUA and hairstylists in the Seattle area. Hannah and her team came up on top as far as pricing, flexibility, and responsiveness. Hannah answered all my questions and concerns with full description of her services. She has an awesome team of artists working with her. Throughout the whole period, Hannah kept me up to date with reminders and sent me full invoices of the description of services! Great transparency!

My main artist from Hannah’s team was Michelle and she was fantastic! She arrived on time, and when she completed my style, it was just as we had gone over in the trial and it was a beautiful bun! My hair looked flawless and classic. Michelle and Andrea were able executed my short-notice bridesmaid style request perfectly on each one of my bridesmaids. Michelle did a fantastic job in leading and managing the styles. Lots of compliments on bridesmaid hair as well during my wedding! She even made sure we got extra spray and touch-ups before she left.

For makeup, I was concerned my mother would not know how to apply makeup to her own aging, dulling skin and eyes. After Michelle's makeup application, my mother looked so beautiful and happy, I almost cried! She also offered to help with my eyeliner. Asian eyes, mono-lid, she did a great wing tip! She just goes above and beyond. I feel so blessed she was there to prepare for my wedding.

I would recommend Urbanista Weddings to any bride who wants the professionalism, artistry, and touch of sweetness that Hannah and her team can offer on the special day. Their talent and organization takes the stress out of planning!

After going to another stylist for a trial that I was really unhappy with I tried Hannah at Urbanista. The trial went very well and I found Hannah very easy to work with. She listens to her clients, very perceptive, and open to feedback. She makes it about you being happy.

I had Urbanista do hair and makeup for myself, my mother, and 5 bridesmaids at the Willows Lodge before my wedding. I honestly think their work was so amazing I had never seen any of us look so beautiful. They did wonderful. The airbrush makeup stayed put. Even when my husband rubbed cake on my nose, I had coverage after wiping it off. My hair stayed completely in place and nicely curled (did a half updo with poof, long hair). They were enjoyable to work with and we had fun all getting ready together.

My only complaint was that things ran behind schedule by about an hour. We made sure to have me (bride) done, but I needed the girls done for some photos before putting my dress on. It pushed pictures back a bit and made me really stressed out. However I will say that Hannah was very accomodating, leaving the Willows and coming to the Hollywood Schoolhouse to finish hair/makeup for the other girls and in the end it was all okay. I am still impressed with all the did for 7 ladies!

Thank you for your review Andria!

I must say your wedding day was fun yet so busy! I burned myself {which is always memorable} and we did run behind a bit. Even with a couple of Artists/Stylists there, it just took an extra amount of time to curl long, thick hair. Thank you for the feedback as I have now learned to ask about each and every member of the Bridal party.

I waited too long to book with Pacific Artistry so Shanelle (from Pacific Artistry) directed me to Hannah at Urbanista Weddings. Hannah was so helpful and responsive to all my emails. She gave me Latay and Brittany for the day of my wedding. They arrived at the hotel on time. While Latay worked on my hair and make-up, Brittany worked on the rest of the ladies (3 ladies & 2 flower girls) and was done by 11am. Brittany was so nice and willing to add my mom in at the last minute. Latay did the make-up for the rest of the ladies and she did such a great job. She made all of us look beautiful. I loved my make-up (airbrushed; even my lipstick was airbrushed) and Latay was able to copy the hairstyle that I wanted. I didn't have a lip gloss for touch up, so she gave me an extra one that she had not opened yet. They were so quick at everything and still did an awesome job. They were all a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Urbanista Weddings!

I didn't have a lip gloss for touch up, so she gave me an extra one that she had not opened yet. They were so quick at everything and still did an awesome job. They were all a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Urbanista Weddings! Read less

Hannah at Urbanista weddings was amazing! she did Make up and brought with her someone who did awesome vintage hair-dos! The make-up was flawless, lasted all day, all night! Airbrush, false lashes...it was amazing. she does a great job using colors that compliment skin tone (and make your teeth look really white!) Prices were very reasonable!

Hannah is one of the coolest people I've met and her work is AMAZING! She did my hair EXACTLY how I pictured it and it was still looking good the next day after sleeping on it! lol (and it was not hard to comb through it for washing the next morning either)
My makeup was beautiful! Not too much, not too little and it also stayed through to the next morning!
I recommend her for ANY occasion where you want your hair and make up to be perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Urbanista Weddings did a fantastic job on the hair and make-up for myself and by bridal party. We did a trail run with my hair up in a beautiful sweeping way and it was really beautiful. On the day of the wedding, I told Hannah that my fiancee was disappointed that my hair wasn't going to be down, we made a last minute change and put the hair down and to the side. She also suggested airbrushing my make up on, and I am so happy that I made that decision. I was so happy with the results. I looked radiant and beautiful and my make up was perfect all day and night. She also made all of my bridesmaids feel beautiful and adjusted to all of their needs and wants. Thanks Hannah!

Dea, how do I begin?? Thank you for your review! To this day I have no idea how I was able to single handedly get 13 people {makeup and hair} done in the allotted time. You were amazing to be around for so many hours and looking back, Im thankful you decided to have your hair to the side instead of all the way up. Great choice!

I cannot say enough about Urbanista Weddings! First off, my hair/make up person cancelled on me, weeks before my wedding. Hannah worked hard to fit myself and my 5 bridesmaids in on such short notice. Everyone's hair and make up (done by Jennifer) looked gorgeous, and stayed perfectly all day, in 85 degree weather, and through 2 hours of intense setting up! Mine even looked great the next morning, after flying all the way to the Caribbean. I would highly recommend these ladies!

Jackie, thank you for the feedback! It is taking me WAY too long to respond {just discovered this feature}. Jennifer told me she had a wonderful time with you and your ladies. The photos Ive seen of your wedding remind of a Victorian Theme, with all the soft rose colors and equisite floral arrangements. PERFECT

I will keep this brief as thinking about it makes me furious and nauseous. Hannah was supposed to do hair and makeup for me, hair for my 4 bridesmaids, and hair and makeup for another friend in the wedding.

Hannah came late and forgot her combs and brushes. We repeatedly advised her of our timeline, but she kept saying she was running ahead of schedule. She was not. She ran so far over time that she was not able to do the look we had agreed on for me (the bride). She did a quicker version of the look that omitted certain elements. However, she apparently did not spray my hair enough as the look was ruined BEFORE the ceremony. The hairstyles on me and at least 2 out of my 4 bridesmaids were ruined BEFORE the ceremony. I wanted to cry. For my big moment and for a great number of the photos, my hair looked like crap! Additionally, she just ran out of time on the last girl to the point where my friend had to cut her off midway in order to leave and make it to the venue.

Overall, in addition to having hairstyles that did not survive until the ceremony, Hannah made me and my bridesmaids run OVER ONE HOUR behind schedule, despite repeated warnings about our timeline. This cost us one hour of reserved limousine time and also one hour of reserved photographer time – a total of $450. More than the money, the emotional trauma was the worst. As the bride, I was terribly anxious and furious and freaked out about the day’s schedule falling to pieces. My bridesmaids, my mom, and I were so stressed out that it was hard for us to unwind and enjoy the next few hours of the day leading up to the ceremony.

After the wedding, Hannah treated this issue very flippantly. She provided a slew of ludicrous excuses and she has not taken responsibility for her actions in a satisfactory way. She refunded me $100, which is a paltry sum considering: (1) the cost of the services she provided, which she was not able to complete to satisfaction and several of which did not last until the ceremony, (2) how much she cost us in terms of lost time with other vendors, and (3) the emotional stress for my mother, my friend, the 4 bridesmaids, and me – the bride.

To sum up, Hannah came very close to ruining my wedding day.

If you look at my other reviews, you’ll note that I usually give very positive reviews. So this extremely negative review is reflective of Hannah’s performance, not my general review style.

Urbanista Weddings responded with the following comments:

Kirsten,

After re-reading your review, I wanted to take a moment to respond with some key points, that I feel will help other brides in the future when making a decision about booking with Urbanista Weddings. I take great pride in my Service and care deeply for each bride, so I want to make sure that the facts from my point of view are addressed.

1: I was in fact late by 15 minutes, due to a new closure on the freeway heading into downtown Seattle, a Parade, and searching high and low for a nearby parking but could only find one that was 5 blocks away. The brushes and combs were not left at home, they fell out in my trunk as I had explained to you at the time. Instead of waste any time getting everyone ready, I was able to utilize what everyone had and it worked out perfectly!

2: We were actually well ahead of schedule until your Fiance needed to get two black eyes and a few blemishes covered up last minute {no quick task} and you spent a good 15 minutes hiding and photographing your cute hidden self. That service overall took a good 45 mintues. I remember quite vividly, standing there waiting for you to come out of the bathroom.

3: Because of the late timeline at that point, I had offered on three separate occasions to drive the very last gal getting her makeup and hair finished. I was denied all three times, and I might add that while I was working on her she was overtly rude and disrespectful towards me and completely unprofessional. I sitll offered to drive her so she didn't have to take a cab and it would have been much faster.

4: I see no complaints on the makeup or the quality of anyone else's hair in your review, only your hair, that was limp by the time you arrived at your ceremony. I must say that it was raining outside, very heavily. I mentioned more than once that you will want/need an umbrella if you are planning on spending 2 hours getting group photos outside. I can see by your response that my advice was not taken, thus leaving nice, plump curls lifeless and limp.

5: After the wedding you had your mother call me, screaming and yelling at me, not speaking to me with respect whatsoever. I allowed her to badger, accuse and exaggerate the circumstances to me. I refunded you $100 because I did not want to be treated so cruely by anyone. I still provided makeup service to yourself as well as hair and makeup to your bridesmaids and I didn't charge for the groom.

I feel as if I have handled myself as a true proffessional and experienced person. I am sorry you were not happy with the service I provided, as I did the best job that I could have done with the circumstances. The thing I learned from this experience is that if the timeline is tight, I will bring an Assistant or another Artist with me, and always warn of outside dangers that are out of my control.

I used Urbanista Weddings for my baby shower. I was 8 months preganant and feeling big, fat and ugly, so I decided to get my hair and makeup done, to make myself feel a little bit better about myself. Well it worked! My hair and makeup was stunning. Everyone at the baby shower kept complimenting me on both and despite barely able to walk and not fitting into any shoes besides flip flops, I love the photos from my baby shower because I look so put together! Thank you!
