Missy Lowe Makeup & Hair
i was so lucky to come across Missy. She changed her schedule to fly into town early to accomodate me. She did my hair and makeup for my engagement session with my photographer and my wedding. Missy is extremely personable, accomodating, fair in her pricing, and most of all .... talented. On my wedding day she kept me calm and made me laugh as she did my hair and makeup. She diffused all the stress i was feeling and accomodated my family's last minute requests. my makeup did not budge all day and night and the wedding pics look great. my mom looked stunning! she has a great eye for what will photograph well so you have to trust her, although she will listen to you and do what you ask her to do. I would definitely hire her again and recommend her highly to anyone that needs to look fabulous! and by the way, when i realized my mom and aunt had indulged in a last minute session of fake and bake and their hands were glowing orange, missy had the solution. thanks so much Missy, you are a total life saver.
The moment Allison and I met Missy, we knew we were in the presence of an amazing artist, professional and human being. Yes, she is all three. To date, she is the only makeup artist who has ever called me, the photographer, before a wedding to collaborate about the shoot. Why is this important? It is a huge indicator that Missy cares. She is heavily invested in the client, with the intention of the client looking her best in person, and on film. Missy goes one step further: she helps the client look her best from the inside because she is such a warm and loving soul. Finally, her work is by far better than most, if not all. She is always our first recommendation when we meet a new client.
I am a hair and makeup artist based in San Francisco, but travel worldwide.
I'm a lover of everything unique and beautiful. Makeup has always been my life, even when I didn't realize it. Although I worked in Corporate America for many years, I still freelanced doing hair and makeup for friends fashion shows,
retail fashion shows, photoshoots and wedding. I finally took the leap 7 years ago and decided to do this full time, I've never looked back and have loved every minute of it.
My goal is to make someone feel, as well as look, beautiful on their wedding day. This is the one day that you will be photographed the most and it's worth the time and effort to look impeccable. I do what I do because I love it! Feel free to contact me about styling your event, or with any questions you may have.

2 1/2 hours. That gives us a chance to talk about what your ideal wedding look would be, look at what makeup and hair ideas you like and dislike, and then do hair or makeup changes that way you get an idea of what you will look like the day of.
On the day of, make sure that all the people having services done have a clean face and dirty hair. I know, that sounds strange, but "day old" hair holds style much better and much longer than freshly shampooed and blown dry hair. A clean face will also help me to get it properly moisturized so I have a good base to apply the makeup whether it be "traditional" foundation, or airbrush foundation.
