Jhigs Hair Studio
When I got engaged I knew exactly who I wanted to do our hair and makeup. I've worked with them before and didn't even consider anyone else. I don't wear a lot of makeup and they do an amazing job of making you look great for your big day while still managing to look like yourself. And on top of that they are very affordable!
I wanted to feel beautiful on my wedding day, and I wanted my mom and bridesmaids to look beautiful too. Jhig's Hair Studio was able to do just that. They arrived at our hotel when they said they would, kept the "getting ready" environment very relaxed, were fun to be around, and we all felt beautiful at the end of the session. I loved the way I looked, I loved the way my mom and girls looked, and the confidence we felt showed in our pictures.
During my trial, I never felt pressured to choose her and she took her time and listened to what I wanted, while also giving her opinion on what would look best for my hair because of my face shape and dress. (I took her advice).
Day of, she finished our looks with plenty of time for pictures. Loved her & her staff!
I hired Jhigs because they did the hair & makeup for a wedding that I was a bridesmaid in, and not only did our hair & makeup last through the very long day, they were a lot of fun to work with. For this wedding, we went to the beach for pictures on a humid summer day, but you wouldn't have been able to tell - no smeared make up, hair still looked great, which is why I decided to go with her... anyway, about our wedding.
Jhigs was very soft spoken, but very easy to deal with. She always responded in a timely manner as well. One of the nice things is that her contract was the easiest to read & understand out of all the vendors we hired. Another nice thing is that I never felt any pressure from her to book her, do a hair & makeup trial (esp. since I pretty much wanted the same look as they'd done for me before), or to add additional services.
For our wedding, Jhigs & her crew came to the hotel that the bridal party got ready at. They're so fun! They had fun music playing from the time they got there until they left, cracking jokes & very personable.
There were a variety of races (white, Asian, Middle Eastern... etc) in my bridal party, and all of our makeup looked gorgeous without being overdone. Everyone's hair was pretty, too - I had to deal with crunchy hair at the end of the night, but looking through the photos, I was happy to see that my naturally straight hair, which I left down, held it's curl allllll night. There were a few closeups of us at the end of the night, and I loved how good everyone still looked.
Hiring Jhigs to come to the hotel for everyone's hair & makeup was totally worth it - I'd hire them again in a heartbeat!
Jhigs did an amazing job on not only my make-up and hair but also my wedding party and mother of the bride. I brought her pictures of the hairstyle I wanted and she made it look exactly like it. Usually I don't wear make-up so I was scared that it would look oily towards the end of the night. But it still looked amazing till 3 am. Definitely recommend.
