I truly enjoyed working with Nia! She was extremely friendly and was always willing to listen to my suggestions and concerns. I also appreciated the fact that she was very honest with her feedback and helped me to choose the colors and styles that would best conceal my flaws while playing up my strengths. When I was searching for makeup artists, I paid particular attention to ones that specialized in bridal makeup. I did one trials with Nia with two different looks (one more smoky eye, and the other slightly more natural), and both turned out amazing! She definitely made my eyes stand out and achieved the "fresh yet glam" look I was going for. The day of my wedding, Nia did a great job with me and my bridesmaids, I think everything was wonderful and I would definitely work with her again in a heartbeat! Thank you Nia for being part of my special day!

I would highly recommend Nia for wedding makeup and hair. At first, I wasn't sure about hiring one person to do both makeup and hair, as most hairstylists are not makeup artists, and vice-versa. I will just say that after my trial with Nia, the look on my fiance's face was PRICELESS and he said, "You ARE going to hire her, right?" :) I felt very confident that I was in good hands with Nia. She brought her sister as her assistant, and they were both extremely pleasant, calm, and focused. Nia totally got the look I was going for and I was so happy with both my makeup and my hair. I love that she is a perfectionist and wanted to make sure everything looked beautiful and that I was happy. Her sister, with Nia's occasional guidance, did a gorgeous job on my sister's makeup. She loved it, and they happily re-did her hair when she wasn't quite sure it was the right look for her the first time. She ended up looking simply stunning at the wedding! I loved that Nia uses airbrush foundation, and my skin felt light and soft even though I was wearing pretty heavy coverage. Nia and her sister have a great sense of what looks good on each person and they did a great job on my bridesmaids as well. They were on time and had very professional attitudes. Another wonderful thing about Nia is that unlike most vendors, she did not charge exhorbitantly high fees just because the event was a wedding. I appreciated her fairness - it's a rare quality in the wedding industry. I highly recommend Nia for hair AND makeup!
