Wowpretty Agency Makeup and Hair Agency started in 1993 in Asia moved to San Francisco Bay Area in 2000. Wowpretty is composed of 17 professional stylists. These stylists are Jira (Founder), 9 Master Stylists, and 8 Senior Stylists These stylists are all professionally trained to go through a master screening process. They each have at least 10 years experience with airbrush technique, cosmetology licenses, and use their talents to bring out each bride’s unique style.

We have two locations in the San Francisco Bay Area – one in downtown Burlingame and another one in San Mateo. We are now on our 18th year providing services for bridal hair, make-up, and full salon services.

Wowpretty Professional Makeup and Hair Agency officially launches “Jira Couture”, a new line of natural cosmetics and skin care. In 1994 Wowpretty‘s experience and knowledge came from studying, working, and executing specialty weddings in Asia, Europe, and The United States.

Jira Couture cosmetics was created because of our Wowpretty clients and Brides were always requesting us for good quality products that would be chemical free, hypoallergenic, natural, and contain organic ingredients for their everyday use and easy to use with less steps for their busy day along with looking their best. Our products are easy to use, simple to understand but with less steps involved in applying, and get the best look ever. You don’t ever need to use so many daily products, waste so much time, and money in order to get the best look. Jira Couture cosmetics is the best cosmetic solution for the women with a heavy business schedule or a night out. Our cosmetics are not just only for the bride to be but also for a woman who cares about herself and wants every day to be a special day because we know a ” Women’s beauty is so important and we just want to make every day special”

Jira Couture, manufactured in New York, offers remarkably natural ingredients of the highest quality such as minerals, pure natural organic ingredients providing vitamins, anti oxidants, chemical-free ingredients, and sun protection with rejuvenating skin and hypoallergenic properties. Jira Couture Cosmetics are approved and insured. FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by regulating human and animal drugs, biologic, medical devices, food and animal feed, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.

I'm so glad Elena did my makeup and hair for my wedding! She was such a sweet person and was just generally fun to have around the morning of the wedding! When I went in for my trial, I showed her a couple pictures of updos that I liked and she was able to combine both of them for a lovely hairstyle. I was scared my thin hair wouldn't hold but somehow she worked her magic and it lasted the whole night! My bridesmaids and mom were also very pleased with their hair. My makeup ended up looking great as well, natural just like I asked for. Her prices are reasonable compared to some of the outrageous prices out there for bridal hair and makeup, and I highly recommend her to any brides who want to look beautiful on their special day! (In other words, all brides

Just wanted to write a quick thank you for Jira and the Wowpretty Team who did such an amazing job on our wedding. Action speaks louder than words.

How time flies, it has been 3 years already but still remember every moment when my wife and I met before our ceremony.We had a Napa wedding back on September 21st 2013 and planning a wedding is not easy.We got excellent vendor referrals through the help of Jira from Wowpretty Makeup and Hair.Jira help book and made the appointments for our wedding vendors. My wife can 't speak English clearly but it was a blessing that Jira and the Wowpretty team were so patient.That made our wedding planning even easier. What was also nice was that the weather being super hot that day the makeup and everything stayed all day and all night.Just amazing, I can't believe how all the pictures come out so nice. I can't thank her enough. It meant so much to us.

Thanks again everyone for the great work

Elena from Wowpretty did my hair and makeup for my wedding this past September. It was truly a pleasure working with her, as she was professional and very likable. She is extremely talented and my wedding day hair and makeup looked gorgeous. I had a vision for my look (Hollywood style) and she made it happen. I also loved that she traveled to my house to prepare me and my bridesmaids .. Look no further, brides-to-be, Elena is amazing!!

WowPretty did a wonderful job on my H&M for my wedding day. Jira was my stylist and she arrived promptly and did her magic. She was able to deliver what I envisioned for my hair and gave me realistic expectations for that style with my outdoor ceremony in the damp ocean weather. The airbrush makeup stayed on till the end of the night and didn't feel heavy at all. My H&M looked great in pictures. I would definitely recommend WowPretty to do H&M for any special event. You would be in good hands.

We got married in Lana'i, Hawaii and Jira traveled to Hawaii to do our hair and makeup. Our wedding party included 3 bridesmaids, a flower girl, mother of bride, and myself. From the first time I met Jira for the trial consultation, she was a great listener about how I envisioned my look for the big day. She also recommended different ways to do my makeup to bring more attention to my eyes and ways to give the illusion of a slimmer face. At the same trial consultation, Jira's expert hands worked magic with my hair. I have long hair and it;s always long & straight. Within 30 min, Jira was able to give me 8 diff. styles, and each was so beautiful that it was difficult to pick one for the big day because I wanted them all. Jira was very flexible with her travel schedule that it made coordinating her flight and hotel very stress free for me as the bride. On our big day, I honestly have never ever felt and looked more beautiful. Keep in mind that the temperature was approaching 100F in Hawaii, there was no cloud in the sky, light wind, and I was in a very heavy tulle dress. With that said, Jira's expert hands and products made me feel so natural, as if I didn't have makeup on. I didn't feel at all like I was in danger of my makeup melting off. In fact, my makeup stayed on all afternoon and into the night and I never once needed a touch up (except for my lipstick). I quite literally took my husband's breath away (he cried as I walked down) that he, and all my family, commented on how beautiful the hair and makeup was. So many of my friends have asked for Jira's info. In the photos that my family took (we're still waiting for the professional photos as I write this) my skin looked so luminous, like i was glowing, my blush was the perfect shade giving me that "blushing bride" look, and my eyes have never been so perfectly smoked. I am so thankful for Jira's work in making my dream come true to help me feel literally like the prettiest girl in the world for one day.

I've heard that Yelp will put the review through a the filter, anyway, I wanted to thank you Jira and her stylists who came alone with her for my wedding. They did such a wonderful job. My Makeup and Hair stayed perfect all day and all night.
In the beginning I thought Jira's wedding services were too expensive but when I saw how well Jira and her team performed on my wedding and gave me the look that I wanted I was so happy..They even came 15 minutes early and stayed 30 min extra. It was so nice of her.
It was not just the good services that Jira did for me but also the hair cut they did my fiance was excellent. Jira also gave me the makeup lesson that I purchased through Living Social she is having right now. I purchase the living social package.Jira also used her brand of cosmetics. Jira Couture Cosmetics is her own brand. I love her concealer and foundation. She gave me a sample and loved it so much that I need to buy some when we meet her for another makeup class. I also love the fact she gave me 10% off of the cosmetics and free shipping

Thank you, Yoong, for making me such a beautiful bride on my wedding day. Thank you, Yoong and Nancy, for making my bridesmaids just as beautiful. Not only did we look great, we felt great! Yoong was very accommodating and listened to my wishes during the trial day and was also very available through phone for updates the week before the wedding. Jira was very easy to get ahold of us well and very responsive to emails. Thank you so much, WowPretty!

I am so glad Jira did my wedding makeup. I would recommend her to everynody!

I felt flawless, natural and beautiful. Plus, my complexion and features looked great in the pictures. She did a great job focusing on the features. I felt like I looked like a model in a wedding magazine

On my wedding day, Jira arrived early. She handled my family gracefully, and was so friendly and efficient.
She is one of the top makeup artist expert.. She also haves her own line of makeup that is the best I have ever used.

I had the pleasure of booking Jira from Wow Pretty to do my hair and makeup on my wedding day. I heard about her team from our videographers and also from other friends that have booked her. Jira is always responsive to my emails and extremely nice and professional. During my trial, she took her time to play with different hairstyles and makeup options, so by the time I left, I felt really comfortable and happy with her work. When the big wedding day came, her team was prompt and my bridal party and I felt really confident and beautiful after they were done. I couldn't have asked for a better team! In fact, I enjoyed it so much, I booked a make up lesson with her a few months ago. I highly recommend Jira!

I had the absolute best experience with Elena She and her assistant, Sooyeon did hair and makeup for my bridal party, mom, and me on my wedding day. I really think that I have never looked better, and my girls looked gorgeous. As we were all interested in natural makeup looks, we all ended up looking just like glam, pumped-up versions of ourselves. Both Elena and Sooyeon were super sweet and fun to be with-- they made our long, beauty-filled morning really fun. They both listened to what we wanted and came up with great ideas when we had questions or were uncertain. Later that evening, people kept remarking on how much they loved my updo... and both my hair and my makeup survived hours of dancing. I couldn't recommend Elena more highly.

I was from NY & met Wowpretty.com on Yelp.com right after I saw the wowpretty works, I booked one of wowpretty stylists right away so that I booked Elena of wowpretty team.

I had my engagement photo M&H and my trial M&H for my wedding with her. I m truly Happy with her. It is not just she is very trying to understand what I wanted and she also is good listening.

Elena also took care of my hair cut/color before my wedding at Wowpretty salon in san Mateo and my wedding M&H turned out just awesome & Can't wait to see my wedding photos.

I first met Jira in 2010 when my best friend got married and was referred to Jira + WowPretty for makeup for her/bride and the wedding party. I loved Jira and her team's friendliness, efficiency (great makeup and hair in good time on a wedding morning), and quality of work (hair and makeup last all morning noon and night). By my wedding in 2012, I didn't even consider going anywhere else for my makeup and hair. As soon as I knew my wedding date, I contacted Jira directly to secure her for me, my MoH and Mom. As expected, Jira wowed me and I couldn't have been more pleased with how my hair and makeup turned out. She even helped me make my flower girl's special wishes come true and put her hair up with some flowers and she felt like I did - beautiful and happy! I've recommended WowPretty to numerous friends since. Jira is a wonderful businesswoman and stylist. adore her!

Jira is the best. She did my wedding day makeup and hair and did a wonderful job. Elena also assisted with my bridesmaid's hair and my mom's hair and makeup. They are such a great team and work so efficiently. I think we were ahead of schedule because of their hard work. They put so much effort into making your wishes come true and that goes for my bridesmaid's hair too.

Couldnt be happier with their service. I'll likely go back for hair and makeup when my husband and I do our one year anniversary wedding shoot. And Jira, if you're reading this, thank you again!!! You were amazing. =)

Wowpretty was one of the first vendors i hired almost immediately after i got engaged. I already knew that Jira was one of the best in the industry and i booked her quick because she gets booked up fast! I didn't even go in for a trial and went with my gut that she would do a great job. I ended up doing a trial after i booked her and it came out exactly the way i envisioned. She understood that i wanted to look natural but still have color. She took her time to make my hair and makeup perfect. On the day of the wedding, she and four of her makeup artists all arrived on time at my hotel. They worked their butts off to get myself, 8 of my bridesmaids and 2 mothers done in 3 hours! Jira made my makeup perfect and it stayed put all day ( 6 am-midnight) ! She is extremely talented at what she does. Do not hesitate to book her if you are looking for a top notch makeup/hair team!

Sorry for too late for the review. First, I want to Thank you Miss Elena, is from Wowpretty Professional makeup hair agency. Elena did my hair for my wedding, my hair looked great. I got so many compliments on it. It didn't really look like my trial run, but I was the one, who changed the hair updo to be hair down. My hair looked great and better LOL.

My makeup was nice. Elena started makeup at 5am-stayed with my reception(dinner)
Elena stayed with me all day and I purchased her diamond touchup package, which was $100 / hour but I got 20% discount because I booked her almost a year before my wedding day.

I have My trial session 2 times, I had to say Thank you so much for Jira of Wowpretty, all the fast respond emails all my questions and set up my 2 trial sessions. Jira was so helpful and super nice.

My trial 1st one was my engagement 8 months before the day and 2nd one was my wedding trial, which happened 1 wedding before my wedding day since I cut my hair too short so why we had the 2nd trial session and I bought the hair extension from Wowpretty in order to get the look I wanted (hair down)

Thank you again Wowpretty/Elena for making my dream come true. Elena is not good listener and also super professional. Love you!

Jira is amazing. Not only is she beautiful but she is also a very kind person. The thing I valued most able Jira is her honesty. So many vendors will tell you want to hear---not Jira---she straight up tells you the truth. You don't know how much I appreciated that.

She did an outstanding job helping me create the "look" I wanted for my wedding---1920s old Hollywood. My make-up and hair never looked so great. They looked so good, I now have her cut, color, and style my hair on a regular basis at her salon in San Mateo! Her team also did H & M for 6 other people in my wedding. All were pleased with her work and looked great.

Finally, Jira made communication super easy. She is very responsive over email, always returning calls/emails within 24 hours. Her contracting is straight forward and she was even EARLY to do my H & M on wedding day.

Overall experience: A+!

I hired Jira and her team to do hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids, my future sister-in-law, and the mothers. Jira is the owner and head makeup artist for Wow Pretty. She is very talented and she makes what she does look effortless. Her team is professional, friendly, and, most importantly, very good at what they do. Jira did a terrific job at my hair & makeup trial and it was a no brainer to hire her. Additionally, if you want a guy's opinion, my now husband thought my hair and makeup from the trial looked great too. She has tons of experience and her website shows all the brides she has worked with and the positive testimonials. She's very responsive via email. On the wedding day, she and her team showed up promptly and efficiently got to work since we had so many people. The final product was gorgeous - natural, not overworked; it didn't even feel like I had makeup on. The airbrushing is awesome. It makes your skin look so smooth. Everyone was satisfied with their hair and makeup. I can vouch that all of the women's hair held up the entire night. It rained during my ceremony and my makeup still held. I thought her prices were reasonable given the quality product I was getting. With Jira and her team helping you on the day of, it's one less thing you need to worry about. As a bride, that's gold.

The first thing I learned when I started planning my wedding and looking for vendors was that everyone wants to be your friend, get your business, and take your money. I had already seen several stylist, and was actually already booked with one, but I booked with them because they were good nothing more.

At the trial, Jira was more than just a stylist, asking me for what I envisioned. She is an honest friend, someone who I felt wouldn't let me not have a beautiful and glamorous wedding. As a bride with a vision, you may think you know exactly what you want, but Jira would put her foot down on things she just knew wouldn't end up well. Take her advice, she sees many brides before and after and probably hears it all (the good, the bad, the thank you, and the regrets). I took her advice, and am so glad that I did.

Other stylist, just did what I asked, and yes I looked beautiful, but you could tell they didn't share the same passion for my wedding day as I did. After my trial, I cancelled my other stylist and booked with WowPretty. Trust me, you know you've found the right one, when they share the same excitement about your wedding as you do.

The first thing I learned when I started planning my wedding and looking for vendors was that everyone wants to be your friend, get your business, and take your money. I had already seen several stylist, and was actually already booked with one, but I booked with them because they were good nothing more.

At the trial, Jira was more than just a stylist, asking me for what I envisioned. She is an honest friend, someone who I felt wouldn't let me not have a beautiful and glamorous wedding. As a bride with a vision, you may think you know exactly what you want, but Jira would put her foot down on things she just knew wouldn't end up well. Take her advice, she sees many brides before and after and probably hears it all (the good, the bad, the thank you, and the regrets). I took her advice, and am so glad that I did. In fact, it's changed how I do my everyday make up, and I get compliments even though I'm not a bride anymore.

Wowpretty Agency is just so AMAZING.
I had helped by Jira Wowpretty 's CEO and had Nancy and Anna to do my makeup & hair, 5 Bridesmaid, and 2 moms for my wedding @ Sonoma. They finished with my group just 3.30 hours. Things turned out so PERFECT, makeup & hair stay until mid night (thx for her airbrush), wedding photos came out so GREAT!
They ROCK!

Felt like the most beautiful girl in the world!
, after getting married on Jan 30th, 2011, and just had to leave a few words about Yoong from Wow Pretty, she was so incredible. Yoong and her assistant came round the morning of my wedding, and completely transformed me, my two bridesmaids, and my mom, and I still can't get over how amazing we all looked!! I received so many compliments on our hair, and how 'glowing & radiant' our make-up looked, and it stayed on all day. Yoong was an absolute pleasure to spend the morning with, and I would 100% recommend her to anybody looking for a perfect wedding.

Just want to drop words that Wowpretty team did SUCH an amazing job on my wedding day on Nov 5, 2010. Yoong , Elena, and Sylive are 3 senior stylists from Wowpretty, they arrived 10 min before the time.

My 7 BMs, 2 Moms, and I were absolutely satisfied with the make-up and hair they did. I got so many compliments from friends and
family specially My husband~ love it!! And also I really love the "air brush" technique which Wowpretty team used different foundation than another stylists since I have tried a bunch bay area makeup artists in the past 3 years. I can hardly feel that I am wearing and makeup. I would like to say highly to Wowpretty team. They did a wonderful job as well on my best friend weddings on Sept 12, 2010 and Aug 22, 2010.

If I could give Yoong (WowPretty) and her team a 10 star rating, I would do it in a second. The Wowpretty company was the first name to pop up in my internet search after my first (and only) botched hair and make-up trial with another vendor. After reading Yoong's glowing reviews online, I had to do a test trial right away; which I knew would be worth it...and it WAS. Yoong and her team were so professional, talented and sweet on the day of my wedding. They were so friendly, I felt like they were my guests...

Thank you very much Yoong

Jira is not your ordinary makeup artist, she is a makeup magician! Having worked with a few other makeup artists on previous occasions, I can truly speak to the difference. She does not make the stiff and chalky faces that you often see on traditional brides. Rather, her artwork is very light and natural-looking, as well as fashionable. My fiance was so amazed by the results of my hair & makeup trial that he kept saying "it's like the work of magic!" I had always dreamed of walking down the aisle looking my best. Thanks to Jira, my dream came true on the wedding day!

Jira is amazing! I worked with Jira for my engagement session and also on my wedding day. She is very good about listening to what I want and was able to create the looks that I wanted for my engagement session and my wedding. She and her team worked on me and my 3 bridesmaids and everyone looked so beautiful! On my wedding day, I had originally wanted my hair down. It was an outdoor ceremony, but just my luck, there were STRONG winds outside. Jira was quick, calm, and collected with plan B and ended up giving me a beautiful updo and it stayed put! Jira and her team are very professional -- they arrived a few minutes early and finished in time for my wedding photo sessions to begin. This type of professionalism is so important because you do not need added stress on your wedding day.

I highly recommend Jira's services!

and my rehearsal dinner party. For my wedding weekend (when more photos

my hair and make-up to anyone but Jira.

I was a BM for my best friend wedding. she hired Jira / Wow Pretty on her wedding 5 years ago so now It was my turn and look for a good makeup artists and hair stylists for my wedding 7/10/2009. I decided to hire Wow Pretty team which had all what I wanted airbrush, Makeup, hair, travel, big team, and touchup needed

The price was OVER my budget but unfortunately that I liked her/her team. I, 7 BMS, and 2 moms needed M&H done. The result was so excellent. Jira was SO Great and also Sylive, Yoong, Elena, and another guy I can not remember his name. Our M&H was last - midnight but started from 8am , not needed touchup much just for one time lipstick and a power touchup which provided from Jira cosmetic, called Jira (couture ) I think, and also they were a good team work and good attitude. I would recommend to every bride.

They had positive energy, on time, and natural professional. A makeup artist will be the 1st vendor on your wedding day so it is very important to choose the right team to start on your big day. it is not just only M&H for wedding that they can do but also provide you a good hi-light and cut before my big day.

Jira did my engagement session and wedding day hair and makeup last year and I couldn't be happier with the results on both occasions. She made me look and feel so beautiful and glamorous. (One of my guy friends even told me that I looked like a model at the wedding!) Usually, I don't like to wear much make-up but Jira is truly an artist and can make anyone feel/look beautiful and natural, which is pretty significant when it comes to wedding events. I have some acne scarring and blemishes and I was afraid that these would be visible in the wedding photographs but she was able to conceal these imperfections and still have the makeup look natural. Jira is really sweet, professional, easy to talk to, responsive, detail-oriented, and good at listening to what you want. She really takes the time to listen and understand what you're looking for.

For both my engagement session and wedding day, I had the airbrush makeup and fake lashes put on - which I highly recommend for the bride. The makeup lasts for over 12+ hours and Jira gave me a complimentary touch-up kit for use throughout the day. (Although, I didn't have to touch up at all for the rest of the day). I brought my own lipstick (but this is a more personal thing because I'm more picky about this). Depending on the package you choose, Jira will help you figure out how much time is needed to get everyone's H/M done and also anything else that might come up.

On the wedding day, Jira and her assistant arrived punctually at my hotel and they were both so fun, friendly, and professional to work with. They did such a great job on me and my bridesmaids. (I'm Asian and a few of my bridesmaids are Caucasian but all of our makeup came out beautiful). Also, our hair stayed in place all day, which is pretty impressive given all the moving around.

Her services were worth every penny and more. Wedding hair and makeup is so important! And so is trust. After the engagement session, I knew that I could trust Jira and WoWPretty for the big day. I cannot recommend WoWPretty enough.

Sylvie from Wow pretty did my make-up for my wedding. We did the Air-brush make-up. Our trial went well, but for the day-of, I requested Sylvie make some minor adjustments to her original make-up. She recalled our colors and original plan to the dot and was very flexible about my requests. Sylvie made me look gorgeous and I still looked like myself, which was exactly what I asked of her. My make-up lasted all day and all night. I only had to re-touch my lipstick and blot some oil off twice. Sylvie was a pleasure to work with, she is very sweet and accomodating, she listens to your concerns and requests and I would highly recommend Sylvie to others.

I had my trial with Senior Stylist Yoong at Wowpretty and I absolutely loved her. My wedding was on March 2009, and I was so delighted that I found someone who can do an amazing job with air brush makeup. I usually never wear makeup, but after the trial, my mom and sister were very impressed with Yoong's abilities.On the day of the wedding she came with another stylist to take care of my bridesmaids so that she could focus on me.

She arrived on time and did a wonderful job and wowpretty is a great vendor that you can count on for your wedding day.
I recommend Yoong for doing you hair and make up for any special event..

Thank you so much Yoong for the picture perfect memories!

I can't thank her enough for everything!!! She is on time, so professional and friendly. I found her about three months or so before my wedding and i was so lucky that she was available! I would absolutely use her again and would recommend her to anyone and everyone! Read less

After several make-up trials with other artists for my wedding, I finally found Jira. Let me just say, I had no idea that finding a make-up artist was going to be this hard. I left other trials feeling beautiful, but thinking why do I want to pay this person $200+ to do my make-up when I can do it myself? Well Jira was the first person that I found that did such a great job that I felt that I needed to book her. Here's the low down:

1. Beautiful Make-Up - Very detailed oriented and knows how to handle asian faces.
2. Airbrush foundation - this stuff is nice, goes on smoother and thinner.
3. Reasonable prices - most make-up artists want at least $200 just to do make up. Jira is charging me 300 for both hair and make-up (trust me, this is a good deal!).
4. Touch Up - all the other make-up artists want to charge me at lest $100/hr to wait around until I need a touch up. I am getting ready at 1pm for photos but the wedding doesn't start until 6pm, so that means at least 4hrs of wait time for the make-up artist.. do the math, its a LOT! Jira will come back later in the day for a additional fee of $150 which will include a hair style change also. Thank you for having reasonable prices!!!
5. Friendly and listens to what you want.

All my bridesmaids loved Jira's make-up as well. She really does a great job making you look beautiful and natural. I felt at ease knowing that Jira was doing my make-up, especially when there were a million things going on my wedding day.

My hair looked great too. I got so many compliments on it. It didn't really look like my trial run, but it looked great anyways, so I didn't care.

Jira was also very on time and made sure everyone was ready as per my stringent schedule. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for special occasion make-up and hair.

I highly recommend Wowpretty to anyone who requires hair and make-up services. Jira is a very talented hair and make-up artist. She knows what works best for you, but she is open to any suggestions you may have as to the look you desire. Not only was I very satisfied with her work, she was so easy to work with as well. She has a very nice and friendly personality. I felt comfortable and at ease from the moment I met her. Right away, I knew I was in good hands! I love her work! :)

For our June 28, 2008 wedding, I am eternally grateful that I booked WowPretty’s services for my hair and makeup (H&M). Jira T., owner of WowPretty, was the first artist I visited, and I would gladly repeat my choice. Her talent and passion for the work is abundantly evident, and she is professional in every way.

Trials:
My first trial was in Dec 2007, for a cost of $125. I use make-up infrequently, so relied on photos from a recent issue of a Hong Kong wedding magazine to convey the effect I wanted to achieve: a natural, glowing look that is fancier than usual, but not overly dramatic. Jira listened and also gave feedback and pointed out which looks would work better for a “real life” wedding, as opposed to on models in a studio.

I decided to try a few new techniques that I had not previously considered. The first was the air-brush foundation. All I did (and Jira continuously gave clear instructions) was close my eyes and hold my breath while she sprayed liquid foundation all over my face. Just felt like rain mist which dried very quickly into one smooth covering. Highly recommended.

The second technique was false eyelashes. Jira attached them with minimal irritation to my eyes, and when I looked in the mirror, what a difference – they do help to achieve a much “lusher” look, especially in photos. Again, highly recommended.

I felt Jira was very down-to-earth and not pushy at all in trying to “up-sell” her skills and talent. She is decisive and efficient, but was constantly seeking my feedback. She also liked to keep a friendly banter going, although English is not her first language. I booked her within a week by sending her a check for 50% deposit.

In May, I emailed Jira a photo of an up-do that I liked, and she thought it would work very nicely. She did recommend, though, that I get my hair trimmed appropriately before our second trial, so I had her do it at a salon space that she rents in San Mateo for $50. I was quite happy with the result – long layers on both sides, with side bangs.

After reviewing the first trial photos, Jira thought that the first color scheme – lilac/purple– might be a bit too pale. So at my second trial, two weeks before the wedding (another $125), we chose a deeper palette of brown and rose tones for a warmer and richer effect, with touches of lilac to match my sisters/bridesmaids’ gowns and make-up. Jira was also able to replicate the up-do that I requested. After my sisters saw the photos, we knew that we got it.

Wedding Day:
We were running late while Jira had arrived a bit earlier than our 10:30 start. But she just patiently waited outside the suite with all her gear while my sisters made a mad dash over to the hotel. Once everyone was on site, Jira got down to business. My sisters had only arrived from Canada a couple days ago, so never had a trial with Jira, but boy were they astounded! Jira gave them both air-brush foundation and false lashes, and they looked ravishing. My older sister, who had gone through the bridesmaid experience once before in Toronto and came out of that H&M experience feeling everything was too heavy-handed, could not stop telling me how much MORE she liked Jira’s work.

I arrived shortly before 1pm, and Jira did her magic once more. Within an hour, she had recreated the flawless look that lasted me until midnight that day. She also dusted some shimmer powder over my shoulders and collarbone, for the “Hollywood” factor, as she liked to put it!

My fiancé isn’t one to rave about make-up (he usually barely notices its effects, and only points it out on other women / celebrities when it’s obviously badly/too heavily done). That day, though, when he saw me in the hotel room, he could not stop smiling and telling me how pretty I looked. So that’s saying a lot 

Jira’s efforts were noticed all throughout the day by family, friends and total strangers. The flow of compliments just did not stop! Even now, three months later, my relatives all over the world are still referring to the photos they received and telling us how beautiful we looked.

Communication:
Except on certain summer weekends heading into and during peak wedding season, Jira never failed to respond to my emails within 24 hours. She also called me to follow up on additional trial dates and logistics for the final location for wedding day H&M.

Cost:
Wedding day H&M services were $650 for us three girls. Compared to a lot of providers in the Bay area, Jira is affordable – many places charge this sort of price for makeup alone. In an industry that frequently over-promises and under-delivers, and is fraught with ludicrous pricing because the word “wedding” is involved, I believe that Jira’s services are first-class, and her prices quite reasonable.

Jira was such a fun person! She makes you feel at ease the minute you sit down her make-up chair. SHe can make you smile and laugh and you forget your being nervous for your big day. So you feel calm and ready to take on the day. Her make-up was flawless, she made me even more beautiful without changing my appearance too much. She also did a great job with my hair. My hair is short and it was kind of difficult to figure out what kind of style to do with it but she was able to do wonders with my hair. I was very happy with Jira on my wedding day.

Jira is fabulous! She's a true artist who helped me feel gorgeous on my wedding day. What I loved about Jira is that she was willing to accommodate all my requests and worked with me on the price so that all my bridesmaids and mom could get something done. I had two trial sessions with her and at first was a little unsure of the hairstyle. But Jira assured me that once my hair was cut in layers, it would all work out.

On the wedding day, Jira and her assistant arrived on time with suitcases full of makeup and hair accessories. They made everyone look beautiful and their work lasted through the night and into the next day!

If you want to feel gorgeous, visit Jira and her team!

I heart Jira! She did my makeup/hair, bridesmaids hair and my mother's makeup/hair for my June 2008 wedding. Jira was friendly, on-time, calm, professional and she made me look amazing and natural at the same time. Sigh, it's all downhill from here...

A couple highlights come to mind; at the trial, Jira really, really LISTENED to what I wanted. I said "I want braids in the updo" and she gave me braids. She also gave me recommendations to what she thought would look better or wouldn't look so good when I asked because I was at a loss.

At one point during the wedding, we were starting to run behind schedule and I was getting a nervous about time, but Jira was calm and organized, even if I wasn't. The room we were getting ready in was also incredibly hot and I felt bad because we didn't have any bottled water available right away, but Jira and Regina sweated it out and never complained, not once.

I wholeheartedly recommend Jira for her incredibly professional work ethic and talent. Her speciality I believe is especially in Asian makeup, but I honestly think she's capable of anything (think Kevin Aucoin). She's definitely worth every penny, I'm so glad I hired her. You're the best Jira!

Recently, I've had to go through 3 weddings. Not to 3 different men, same guy, but our friends, his parents' friends, my parents' friends... 3 different cities. Let's just say that's a lot of hair and makeup in the last few months.. probably and hopefully more than ever again in my lifetime.
The side benefit is that I actually feel like I can make some true comparisons. Jira has a skill in being able to imitate a picture, which definitely is not universal. I brought her hollywood glamour meets Old Shanghai, and she really helped me rock those fingerwaves. In fact, I think the day of turned out better than the trial. She has an artistic eye and gives her opinion to find what compliments you, but she also listens to your opinions. Plus, she has patience and professionalism to deal with picky mothers, not to necessarily send more her way, but she did a great job.

Jira and her team were great. She did a really good job with my make-up, but my eyeliner started to run during the reception. My hair stayed up all day. She was on time to my hotel room and was professional (while still having fun) the entire time. We were a little bit rushed to finish at the end, but I think that was because I had a lot more hair to put up than she anticipated, which wasn't her fault. (At the trial, she told me I needed to cut it, but I didn't because I donated my hair the next day). The trial went really well, and she took a lot of pictures and sent them to me right away.

The WowPretty team did a fantastic job on our wedding day. They have to work on 7 people within 4 hours - in addition to the Bride, they have to work on 4 bridesmaids, MoB and my sister in law. Not only they completed the job on time, they did it with such fun. the girls had so much fun with Jira and Matt!

Jira and Matt are very professional.... Their make-up is very natural and elegant which is what i specifically requested.... They are also very flexible to adapt to individual's preference. I particularly loved the hairdo... I showed Jira a picture of the hairdo i like and she did an excellent job... I have been receiving so much compliments from my girlfriends! When i look at the photos and how beautiful we all looked, the money was well spent.

Thank you Jira and Matt for a job well done!

Jira and her team was great. I had a last minute change in my schedule and she had was very accommodating. She took her time making sure that I looked my best on my wedding day. I didn't worry about my hair or makeup the whole day. After a full night of dancing, my hair and makeup was still in place. Everyone complimented on my hair and makeup. Jira is simply the best. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

She made me looked my best ever!
Thanks Jira!

Jira is awesome. She works magic with hair and makeup! I could not have been more pleased with how she did my hair and makeup on our wedding day, and it lasted all day long--from 6am to 11pm...what more could you ask for?? As with any makeup/hair artist, it's really helpful to bring photos of what you want done. Jira can take one look at a photo and instantly reproduce it--she is great.

This review is coming nearly a year after my wedding, but here it goes.

I was very impressed by all the rave reviews I'd read about Jira. When I contacted her, she was very responsive, which, when you're a nervous bride, is so, so important. When I met her, she was kind, friendly, gave opinions and suggestions, but also really tried to listen to what I was looking for.

But... she smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. She airbrushed my foundation, raving about how natural it looked while giving great coverage, but my skin looked so crinkled every time I smiled, I felt it aged me a good 10+ years. I wanted a nude lip, but every color she tried on me was really bright. I also wanted smokey eyes, but explained I didn't want the color to go too high on my lid. The color went really high on my lid. Then came the hair. I wanted loose, natural waves. I knew my hair was capable of this, because I did it myself all the time (I was hoping a pro could give me a touch more volume & staying power), but it came out straight and very flat until the last few inches, where I had Shirley Temple like curls. She blamed it repeatedly on my haircut. Needless to say, I was glad I had booked a trial. While she was wonderful to be around, and excellent at responding to any and all inquiries right away, I left my trial feeling, well, really, really ugly.

Mish,

I’ m really sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with my work. In the last 10 years, we have never had any complaints regarding the airbrush machine. The airbrush machine consists of all Water Base foundation. Water Base is very light foundation that is never cakey or crinkled. So basically If it is ok on your trial day, it would be ok on your wedding day unless you used something different on that day. Did you use something different on that wedding day?

We always write down every color and makeup that we use on the trial day with a face chart and also send you the photos after the trial to listen for your feedback. On the wedding day, we will always ask our client if there are any changes to be made or if they would like use any other products aside from the trial products. We always follow these steps.

We have a salon to provide the bride the right cut and color for optimum results. This way you get what you are looking for. Roughly 80% of our clients get the hair cut from us and another 20% get their haircut somewhere else. So that means almost 100% of our clients get a hair cut to prepare the hair before the wedding day.

“But she smelled strongly of the smoky cigarette”. I am not a person who smokes and never. It really disappoints me that you were not happy overall with my quality of service and said I m the smoker. As we look into this issue we have not seen any details for your wedding day information so ...?

So I had sought out Jira because of her high rating on this website, and on yelp. She was even offering a special in which she discounted her enormously high prices to moderately high prices and threw in free groom hair and make up ($50) and no travel fee to SF ($200). Well, as we got closer to the day, she started adding on costs for a lot of things being very ambiguous exactly what we were paying for and charged us the $200 travel fee as well as an additional $50 for parking (shouldn't that be in the travel fee?) I don't live in the San Fran area and so booking my hair and makeup trial was not easy and it didn't help that she had no availabilities until literally the morning before my wedding. During my wedding day she seemed rushed and inattentive to what we wanted. Definitely not worth the high price tag.

And WeddingWire did an investigation to make sure that this review is not fraudulent and had me email them a copy of our signed contract and a check that I had mailed to jira for the deposit, both of which have Jira's signature on it.
