COLOR OF FASHIONS
Everything was amazing for my wedding. The way I looked was very beautiful. Olga did an amazing job on my hair and makeup. My mom even looked beautiful. She is a very nice person and as an artist she's amazing at what she does. I even ordered a head piece from her that she sells. Her accessories are
beautiful. I want to say thank you so much for making my
special day wonderful in making me look very beautiful.
I have another event coming up my cousins christening I will be sure to call you, I know its sometime 2013.
Thank you. Cindy
Thank you again for beautifying me on my special day .
I am sorry for the late review. It was hectic after the wedding. Now things are at ease.
I am so happy I have chosen Olga to do my wedding. My three bridesmaids and myself got many compliments. I looked so pretty and very happy. She was professional on time. Day of trial she gave me ideas for hair. I was glad she did 3 styles so I
can decide. Her prices are reasonable and affordable. Thank you very much for your good work makeup hair. You are a great artist and stylist. Ann
I had Olga for my October 27, 2012 wedding for makeup and hair. I had her services for two of my bridesmaids.
Everything was great and she finished everyone in time. I booked her in the spot day of the trial. Her prices are reasonable and she can work with you. She is a great artist and makes you feel comfortable. I would recommend Olga to any bride.
Throughout my wedding night I received many compliments. Everyone loved the way I looked and my makeup lasted the whole night. Even my bridesmaids got complimented.
Thank you so much Olga for making me beautiful for my special day.
Outstanding service and very professional.
Myself and my bridesmaids were treated like royalty and it really added to the day.
Olga was so calm and sincere in turn keeping the wedding party calm on the morning and kept the nerves at bay.
Would have no hesitation in recommending Olga.
You'd be mad not to use her :)

Thank you Vivian so much for the review. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. Your mom is such a sweet lady. I'm so glad everything worked out so well with the makeup and hair. Thank you so much for choosing my services.
I like what you did to my hair on my wedding day. Thank you! Good luck in you're business.
Olga, is an amazing hair stylist and make-up artist. She worked with me in creating the look for my destination wedding. She tried different colors and hair styles and even took pictures of it for me to take it to my destination wedding makeup girl.
I was very happy with Olga’s service. It was easy – she came to my place! She gave me advice on makeup and she is very responsive to emails with questions. I have an appointment with her to do my Brazilian hair straighten and I can’t wait.
Thank you Olga
Olga was great. She always responded to all my emails and every email was super sweet and caring. The day of, she and her cousin did an amazing job on both me, my 5 bridesmaids and my mother in law and still made sure we were on time. My hair and makeup was great and I got compliments everywhere i went. She is very reasonable and was willing to travel to my home and hotel. I would definitely recommend her to any bride
AMAZING - There are more words to say, but I think amazing sums it up as well as beautiful job well done. Olga did an awesome job on myself and my 2 bridesmaids for my wedding. All of us looked stunning and received many compliments all night. I have a few friends that are getting married and I will refer them to her because she is a great makeup and hairstylist. Olga is professional, on time, responsible and caring. She made me feel very confortable day of wedding when I was feeling nervous.
Dear Olga -
I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing such an incredibel job on my hair and make up. My 2 bridesmaids look great as well. Your did such an awesome job on all of us. I was very pleased with your work and your work ethics. You work fast and you knew exactly what we wanted. You are such a great makeup artist and hairstylist. You do awesome work on everyone no matter whether they are the bride or not. You know your stuff and it will bring you a long way. I received quite a number of compliments about my hair and makeup and cant thank you enough . The whole night I was complimented until the end. Thank you so much for everything you are such a nice sweet person and kept me comfortable and at ease the whole time with your professionalism and sincerity.
Wow. I didn't know I could give half a star, but I can and am. Olga is nice, but NOT a professional. I should have known that YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and for my May 2011 wedding, I should have paid more b/c at the end of the day, MY PHOTOGRAPHER fixed my hair b/c Olga couldn't. She did a decent job w/ my bridesmaids, but completely went off the reservation with me, the bride. I think she would be great for a prom or a night out on the town, but DEFINITELY DO NOT USE HER FOR YOUR WEDDING HAIR... unless you're a bridesmaid or a guest at a wedding. If you're the bride, you will be unhappy. I repeat: pay a little bit more for real quality at a salon or highly recommended stylist. I made the mistake of finding Olga thru Craigslist. NOT A GOOD WAY TO GO and I def learned my lesson. Beware.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING UPDATE posted on 9/6/11: Olga sent me a diatribe based on my poor review. Based on the length of her response, I think it's fair to say that the client does NOT come first when it comes to working with Olga. Again, be smart and read between the lines (and all these super positive reviews, which I do not believe to be independent reviews, since they vaguely sound all the same and were probably written by Olga and her friends): rather than apologize, Olga's response was defensive and angry -- is this really the type of hairdresser you want ON YOUR WEDDING DAY? There's enough stress going on that day, so I will reiterate my point: You get what you pay for and I REALLY made a big mistake by not paying more and getting someone of higher quality and skill. I really wish I had spent more money and hired someone else. If I knew then what I know now, I definitely would have paid 2 or 3 times more than what I negotiated with Olga b/c the stress was not worth her cheap price. Good luck.
Vendor response to review
In response to your 9/6/11 outline - I didn't think you would start again with this nonsense: All the reviews are real from clients. I can say what did YOU do with the response I wrote to you after your review that says first; OH WOW I DIDNT NOW I CAN IVE HALF A STAR .... I wrote a long book for you to read and others to see , what happened to it. Neither you or WW seems to know what happened to my long respnse. I will tell you I have everything in my computer.. Most likely I'm sure you erased it because you didn't want people to know anything do you? I dont tell my brides to give me all 5's at all. They do the review and choose what they feel they want to give me. Not everyone gives me 5's so I dont expect it. All the reviews show the brides love my work and service that I provide to them. Watch what you say about CHEAP, you DIDN"T want to pay 75.00/85.00 per person for hair and wanted to bring me down to 35.00 per person? No artist would go for that. Again, I found you on craigslist it was your ad that you were looking for a hairstylist. I have all the papers in my computer and all the emails that go back and forth how you wanted me to come down to 35.00 per person for hair until I came to a median amount. No one else would have given the time and day. So dont say you would've paid more when you were giving me a hard time. Lets not FORGET you asked me to give you ALL my clients information for clarifiction of my work and work habits??? This not a job interview. Trust me I have ALL THE EMAILS in my computer and even printed out of everything going back and forth. So therefore, I request that you cease your deformation of my character because it prevents me from earning a living. Your harrassment is causing me financial stress. I urge you that you stop immediately of this harrasment as of today, otherwise I will have my attorney handle this, which will be a big financial damage due to your harrassment.

I had been to at least five makeup artists for my 2/25/11 wedding and was not satisfied until I met Olga. Olga was flexible with the date/time of makeup trial. When she arrived, she was well prepared with a plethora of supplies. I was nervous that she would not be able to handle ethnic hair-but she surprised me. She not only nailed the hairstyle I wanted from a photo I showed, she did it quickly!
I booked her on the spot for airbrush makeup and hair for my wedding. I'm sure every bride gets called beautiful on her special day, but the compliments from ALL were nonstop an heartfelt. I am so thankful Olga was part of my special day!
She did an amazing job! She was on top of keeping in touch with me. Very professional and did a wonderful job on my hair and make up.
Olga did my hair and make-up for my wedding. She also did my mother and my bridesmaids. She was great. She is very professional and gives great prices as well. I was very pleased with her services. I recommend her to everyone. You helped make my wedding day special. Thank you Olga!
Olga- thank you so much for making me and my bridesmaids look beautiful for my wedding. We got complimented for our hair and makeup. Your prices are reasonable compared to others.

Thank you so much for making me pretty for my special day.
very pleased with the service. Olga was always on time and did my hair exactly how I wanted. My hair looked fabolous!!!!!
I worked with a pure professional who took the time to listen to what I wanted and did the best job! I had never received so many compliments in my life, nor have I ever felt so beautiful! The updo was that of a very elegant classy look and it never fell out! It looked natural and soft, although it stayed in place the entire evening! THANK YOU for making me look amazing on my most important day yet!
I know you did my wedding last year which you did a wonderful job. I was attending my cousins wedding not to long ago and Im glad you were available.

How to Apply Lipstick
Apply your lip liner first. Liner should be the same color or a shade slightly lighter than your main lip color -- never darker. Outline your natural lip line. Next, fill in your lips with your lip color. Using a lip brush will help your lipstick stay longer. Add gloss, if desired, and blot your lips with a tissue to remove excess color. Utilize your mirror, everytime, to avoid a rushed, clown-like look.
· Another Tip for Lasting Lip Color - Blot your lips after applying, lightly dust with pressed powder and reapply.
Eye Makeup – The Basics
Whether you're making up for a special event or just trying to improve on what's already there, there are three basic components in the eye makeup arsenal for you to get to grips with:
Use it to lengthen, curl, darken, separate – in fact, just about anything that can be done to eyelashes, mascara will do. There are hundreds of different brands on the market, all of which promise to do different things for your lashes, some more successfully than others. Finding a good mascara is well worth the time and effort. If your lashes are pale, short or just not curly enough for your liking, you'll be amazed at the difference a lick of mascara can make.
Eye shadow comes in every shade imaginable, and a whole bunch of different textures, from liquid to glitter. While it's not an essential part of your daily "face", it can help add definition to the eyes, draw out your eye color, or even change your look completely.
Like eye shadow, it adds definition to the eye, acting as a "frame" for the rest of your eye makeup. Wear it on the bottom lid to make your eyes stand out, or sweep along the top for a vampish, Briget Bardot look. You can also use it to darken and define your eyebrows, too. Eyeliner comes in pencil or liquid form, and there are even some brands manufacturing it in the form of a felt-tip pen!
In addition to these, you may also want to use some added extras such as under-eye concealer, false lashes or even eye "jewelry" in the shape of little crystals or other bits of bling that can be placed around the eye for a special night out. The three items highlighted above, however, are your basic eye makeup must-haves, and these are the three things you'll use most often when making up your face.
Eye Shadow Tips
For a very dramatic look, choose three shades of eye shadow. A base color, which will go on the eyelid, a slightly darker color to go in the eye socket to help define the eye, and a light color which you'll sweep upwards from socket to eyebrow.
When choosing your mascara, stick to the color closest to your natural lashes. So, brunettes will go for black or dark brown, while redheads and blondes may prefer a lighter brown. Mascara also comes in blue, but use this only as a fashion statement, not for everyday! If your lashes are thin and you'd like to make them thicker, close your eyes and dust them lightly with loose power before applying your mascara. It will make your lashes look thicker, and make your mascara last for longer.
Choose your eyeliner wisely. Whilst some women swear by the khol pencil, which is the most popular type of liner, others find liquid liner easier to use. Experiment with both until you find the one that's right for you.
Applying blush takes some practice, so don't try to learn this technique when you are rushing off to work or school. Take some time in the evening or weekends to practice.
Apply blush last, after everything else is completed, including your eyes
Place a small amount of blush onto the brush and tap off any excess.
Smile, or suck in your cheeks and apply the blush to the apple of your cheek. Brush it up toward your hairline.
Use a circular motion or short vertical movements when you are applying blush.
Use a clean make-up sponge to blend in any edges.
Preview in the mirror when you're done to make sure all your makeup looks good.
The following tips help when you are applying blush:
If you have a full face, focus your blush near your hairline. If you have high cheekbones, apply the blush to in the center of your face.
Do not apply blush to the underside of your cheeks.
Blush should never go below the bottom of your nose or any closer than the iris of your eye. Applying blush high on the eyes can help your eyes to sparkle.
To go with a natural look, apply blush sparingly.
Brush a little amount of blush your forehead if you look very pale—right where the sun normally hits your face.
Toss any unused blush after six months to avoid bacterial infections.
How to Find the Correct Blush
You will want to select a blush that is close to the natural glow of your cheeks after exercise and you should keep your blush in the same color family as your lipstick. Of course, this isn't very helpful when you're staring at row after row of blush in the make-up store.
To find the perfect blush, you'll want to first start with your skin depth. If you have a darker skin, you can wear a darker blush like burgundy or wine shades. Lighter skin tones need to wear lighter blushes like pink or coral shades.
Next review your skin tone. If you have yellowish skin, you should wear cool colors like pink or plum. Olive skin tones should wear apricots or if you have a dark olive complexion, an orange. Neutral shades can wear anything, though rose and mauves are recommended. Blue skin tones (usually only seen in very dark skin) can wear reds or berries.
After chosing your shade, you'll want to look at the contrast of your hair against your skin. If you have dark hair and light skin, you'll need a more vivid blush. The closer your skin and hair color are to each other, the more neutral the color should be. If you are a redhead, use a very mellow shade of blush, like a peach so your cheeks do not compete with your hair.
For those who dont know to much about makeup. To make your eyeshadow, eyeliner and lipstick to stay on little longer. Apply moisturizer first. Always put on moisturizer. It's good to put on a moisturizer on your face to have the makeup set and and not only that since my face is sensitive without it and you put foundaiton directly you will tend to break out. It's always good for everyone to put on moisturizer to keep our face fresh. Let the moisturizer set. Take a makeup brush and apply powder lightly over eyes and lips blend it in. After a few seconds, apply your foundation and the rest of your makeup. That should set you for the night
