When my sister informed us she had hired a professional make-up and hair person for our family to add that extra special touch for her Special Day, I wasn't sure what to expect...never experienced this type of service before.
Yolanda and her assistant, Brittany, were the epitome of professionalism coupled with a personal touch that allowed us to feel completely comfortable with their presence. What a great time we had as these two ladies serviced us the entire day; sharing stories with each other, laughing, and enjoying the ENTIRE process!!! It was as if they were an extension of our family.
As a special gift from my sister to her two nieces--my daughters (ages 15 & 17)--Yolanda and Brittany did their hair and make up as well. The hair styles and make up were totally age-appropriate and were a highlight for them of their aunt's wedding day!
I would highly(!) recommend using Yolanda (and Brittany) again. They were careful listeners to what we each wanted. And they also took into consideration our concerns/comments about each of the 'flaws' we wanted hidden and/or accentuated.
Yolanda and her team made the day so very special!! They did hair and makeup for a total of 7 gals and it was a blast! Strongly recommend this company to anyone who wants to feel special on a very special day!
Very prompt, very professionallike a family member. Very attentive to my needs. Everyone commented on our bridal party's hair and makeup. Highly recommened

Thank you hope to see you soon
Primadonnamakeover was out of this world. So happy I had them do my hair and makeup for my wedding. They were on time, professional,amazing hair & makeup for my self and my girls.
It was so worth it to just relax and let them do everything. It was perfect. The best thing is they come to where ever you need them.
Call them now for your wedding!!!
Yolanda is a delightful, talented, professional person to work with. Her wedding experience helped us plan the day to perfection. My daughter's hair and make up was EXACTLY what she wanted for her wedding day. The bridesmaids hair and make-up all looked stunning (eight bridesmaids and one flower girl). Yolanda and her assistant did it all, starting very early in the morning. This was the best money spent on the wedding. I recommend her 100%. Yolanda is a wonderful, calming person to work with especially when everyone is a bit nervous and anxious on the big wedding day.
Yolanda was just amazing. I chose her as my hair and makeup vendor; however she did more than just my hair and makeup. She was patient and understanding of me during the process of the wedding planning. She offered advice as well as suggestions so that the bridesmaids and myself looked our best the day of. I don't think I have ever felt as beautiful as I did that day. Yolanda stayed with us through the ceremony and reception. She was very attentive and made sure that my hair, as well as the bridesmaids', was in the right place and that we had just the right look for the marathon of pictures. Yolanda is a must for your wedding day.

Yolanda w/ Primadonnamakeover
Yolanda did a fantastic job at my November wedding. I loved my makeup and my bridesmaids loved theirs. Yolanda has a great sense of humour. She is very flexible and professional . She did a fantastic job. She showed up 40 min before start time to set up, we were done on time and didn't feel rushed. Don't look any further girls :)
Yolanda was fabulous...and absolute dream to work with! Yolanda was professional, punctual, and very personable with myself and my entire wedding partyt/ She was very complimentary, offering many makeup tips to us as she went. She gave us additional makeup to bring along with for touch-ups at the ceremony and reception and her prices were very reasonable for the quality work she provides...I received many compliments! I feel very confident in recommending Yolanda for quality makeup and hair services...highly recommended!!
Yolanda - I look forward to working with you in the future.

Amazing work. Thank You Primadonnamakeover for doing my wife's hair & makeup for our wedding. She was and is my life.the most important girl was my new wife..
You were very professional, on time, and had a great assistance. I also want to surprise my wife and buy her the makeup that you used on her. Her eyes were glowing..All I can say is wow..
All you brides out there primadonnamakeover is first class.
Yolanda deserves the highest praise possible. I hired Yolanda for my wedding back in May 2010, and I am so happy I did! (I think it is a little hard to believe,) but I am STILL getting compliiments for the amazing job she did. Yolanda and her daughter showed up early to my maid of honor's house on the day of, started with my bridesmaid's makeup (I wasn't there yet). She did our hair and makeup. omg my hair was amazing! I wore a family heirloom crown + veil combination, which in order to stay on my head needed some fancy hairdoo work. Yolanda did it, and my hair a) has never on this earth looked so amazing, b) stayed put throughout the ceremony! following ceremony + pictures (san francisco), my husband and I were off to the reception site in San Mateo. Where Yolanda was all set up waiting for me, with a beautiful glitzy hair comb to take the place of the heirloom crown+veil combo. Oh I would love to include photos. hehe, professionalism and flexibility, soo more like a 10.0 than a five star. :) I have to tell you, the reception place was expected to have a hidden bathroom for the hair/makeup redo, but for one reason or another the electricity was out, and so Yolanda had to set up in the common use ladies' restroom, it was a crazy little mixup, (but at the time, I didn't have a clue, because Yolanda was all set up like it was planned to be that way!) Oh it was a dream. I could go on forever, but since you are probably a bride in a hurry, I will say this,
Call Yolanda with PrimaDonna Makeover as soon as you can!
the more time you have before your event, the more perfect it can be. :)
p.s. Yolanda, if you read this, THANK YOU!!!

Thank you. I was honored to work with you. You are beautiful inside & out.
Hope to see more pics.
Lets keep in touch. Say hi to Brad.
Quite expensive, but did a decent job of making my wife look great.
I got married to the love of my life last month and want to thank Primadonnamakeover
for your AMAZING BEAUTIFUL WORK you did on my Wife, Mom, & Girls in the wedding.
My wife is beautiful with or without makeup but You Made her up So STUNNING words cant say.
Thank You. Primadonnamakeover Is the Best!!!! And They Come To You Where Ever You Are Getting Ready.
Yolanda was wonderful to work with! I hired her to do a "makeup party/bridal shower" for my sister. She is getting married in Maui this month and had wanted to learn how to do her own makeup for the wedding. So I found Yolanda online and I contacted her. She responded right away (which is more than I can say for some other vendors)!! She helped me determine just what I was looking for. She came to the house and used my sister as a model, doing her hair and her makeup while her friends and family watched. However, all the guests were given an information packet and a sample face chart so that they could use the makeup to determine what colors were best for them. Yolanda also explained the french skin care line she uses which was a big hit for everyone!! My sister loved the result of both the hair and makeup and everyone had a wonderful time. Yolanda was able to order my sister certain products from Mac and has been most helpful in answering followup questions as well.
I would definately recommend Yolanda for any wedding day makeup application or hairstyle. If you are interested in trying out the "makeup party" I would recommend that as well. She is very professionl and knowledgable in what she does!
Yolanda was professional and really flexible when we had some wedding day time changes. There was a little confusion about the timeline, but she worked wonders and had us ready to go by the time we needed to leave for pictures. I received lots of compliments throughout the wedding day, and my bridesmaid is thinking about having Yolanda at her wedding.

Thank you it was an honor to work with you. Hope all is well.
Wow, is all I can say about how bad my experience with Yolanda was. I did a trial with her before my wedding and I was so disappointed. She was shockingly bad. Not just as a hair and makeup technician but as a business owner working with a customer. It was such a bad experience for me that I feel I owe other brides the service of sharing this.
First, my hair. It looked as if someone had teased it into a nest and had purposely done everything possible to make it look just plain ugly. The amount of pins in there was unfathomable considering how little she did in terms of styling it. My fiance was dumbfounded when he saw it and told me that a child could do a better job. I do not have particularly challenging hair, and afterward I played with it myself and it looked a million times better. I would be happy to share comparison photos, just message me.
The makeup was also off. I have a light olive-toned complexion and she made me look ghostly. She also used orange lipstick on me after I very clearly requested a subtle shade of pink gloss. She also had me apply my own mascara and lectured me when I told her I don't wear foundation every day. I'm a law student, there is no need to do myself up for an 8am class, I think a little eyeliner and lip gloss is enough?
Aside from the professional errors, her personality was off-putting. She was arrogant, patronizing and all around condescending. She even made a comment about my apartment building being unsightly. So rude. I have never been treated by a vendor like this in my whole life.
She was pushy about the deposit and tried to get me to sign a contract immediately, even after I said I wanted to show my fiance first. Soooo glad I did because the next person I did a trial with was absolutely wonderful.
The only good things I can say about Prima Donna was that Yolanda was responsive to emails and flexible about doing hair and makeup for me and my bridal party on location. Other than that I can't say anything good about the experience.
I normally don't leave reviews like this but I felt like I just had to in this case.
Yolanda was great to work with. She comes to wherever you are getting ready. She took great care of me and my bridesmaids. She came to the ceremony and took care of touch ups for portraits. She also came to our reception site for final touching up before the reception started. Yolanda is awesome!
I came from Ohio to San Francisco to hold my wedding and needed to completely put my trust in someone I never met to do my hair and makeup and generally make it feel like a special occasion when I would be all by myself. Yolanda connected with me immediately over the phone and addressed all my concerns. She earned my trust and delivered on all her promises. I was thrilled with the results. She was so flexible she even stood in as my bridesmaid! Thank you, Yolanda!

I was honored to be part of your wedding Thank You. You are a beautiful person inside & out.You were a beautiful bride. Many happiness in your new life.
Loved working with Yolanda! Her calm demeanor and professional attitude were helpful on such a stressful day. I came across her website and saw the beautiful photos of the brides she'd already worked with, and called to her book a trial right away. Knowing I was in good hands on my wedding day was a huge relief. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
PrimaDonna Makeover is absolutely the best. Yolanda is fabulous to work with. She is not only extremely professional and responsiveness but she is a skilled artisan with hair and make-up. I couldn't have been happier with the results and my mom, sister and friend were thrilled with her service as well.
If there's one additional person to add to your wedding party the day of your wedding, it should be Yolanda. Your prep time will never be better and you will look absolutely amazing!
