This review is for hair services only.
Sarah did my hair for my wedding and my four bridesmaids. Sarah was fun and on time with everything. My bridemaids all loved their hair and they all looked beautiful! Sarah spent almost 2 hours with me during my trial because I couldn't really express what I wanted, but in the end I was very happy with what she had come up with.
Unfortunately, pieces of my hair style (Side pony with curls) came loose/undone several times throughout my wedding. My maid of honor was already fixing it before my walk down the aisle. It was just added stress/frustration for the day. I wish she had added a few more bobby pins, or secured the ones she used a little better. Or simply asked me if it felt secure enough.
Other than that it was a pleasant experience.
Parie and Sarah were AMAZING! they arrived on time and ready to go! They were so professional, and made sure we all stuck to the schedule. Very friendly ladies :) Parie executed my makeup look dead on, she listened to my every little request. My makeup turned out flawless And lasted all night. She reallly made sure I was happy. :) Sarah is gifted, she made my fine hair into bombshell.hair and trust me my hair is usually fine and limp! lol My curls and volume lasted all night. All of my bridesmaids hair and makeup came out amazing as well. if you haven't already booked these ladies do it now. you won't be disappointed!!!
Leah (makeup) and Sarah (hair) did an AWESOME job for my wedding last weekend! They are super friendly, easy to talk to, and professional. The girls and I felt so beautiful all night. I definitely recommend Vanity Belle! :)
When doing all the preparations for our wedding, hiring a hair and makeup artist was the last thing on my mind. I email at least 10 other makeup artists in the Orange County and Inland Empire, but Vanity Belle's prompt and professional response impressed me the most. Some of the other artists I contacted were either rude or unprofessional (One thing that you definitely not want on the day of your wedding). After comparing prices and browsing through some of the other artists' portfolios, it was Vanity Belle's professionalism, prompt response, and overall style that made choose them over the others. There is nothing more frustrating to a bride then having to wait for answer (ladies, you know what I'm talking about). But what really sealed the deal and made me ABSOLUTELY confident in Vanity Belle was their artists' personalities. During my trial, Leah and Sarah were absolutely lovley, amiable, fun, and energetic (just the right vibe you want to have on the day of your wedding). Leah and Sarah were very quick to respond and were absolutely awesome. After my bridal trial, Leah sent me over a timeline of makeup/hair. I had 3 bridesmaids and 1 junior bridesmaid (45 minutes each). Leah and Sarah arrived early to set up and cracked me and my bridesmaids up the whole morning (which I loved). These are the girls you definitely want to have around (they're true keepers), and having them around to make you and bridesmaids laugh definitely shows in the pictures. When you're having a good time, it really shows. Not only did my make-up last ALL morning, it pulled a "Lionel Richie" and lasted all night long as well. (Ceremony started at 10am, reception ended at 11pm). Getting airbrushed (extra $10) was definitely worth it. Not to mention my hair was BANGING too! I was a little worried that it would get frizzy from the rain and cold, but it stayed true to form without looking like a helmet. I would definitely RECOMMEND Leah and Sarah from Vanity Belle!They should be your 1st choice.
I loved the girls at Vanity Belle. I had tried different Makeup artists but I connected with Leah not to mention her work was flawless. Family and friends were raving about how natural the makeup looked on the wedding day. She takes the time to listen and pays attention to small detail so the end result is perfect everytime. My friends loved her work as well. Definitely recommend Leah for makeup on your wedding day!
On my wedding day, I had my hair and makeup done by Leah from Vanity Belle. I don't wear much makeup usually and never get my hair done professionally, but I wanted to look beautiful on this very special day. When Leah arrived at my home for the trial about a month before the wedding, and asked me what I wanted, I basically had no idea!! She was super sweet and very patient, and even brought bridal magazines for me to browse through. Leah is a true artist, and is very skilled at her work. I am not used to some aspects of beautification like wearing false lashes, or having my lashes curled, but even these procedures were a breeze! I honestly felt quite glamorous after the trial, and at that point was even more excited about my wedding day. A few days after the trial, I decided on a couple of changes and emailed Leah for her thoughts. She always responded to my inquiries right away, and was open to any of my changes. She also freely offered her guidance and professional opinion which was invaluable to me as someone who knows little about makeup and hair. On the day of the wedding, I was super nervous but Leah was there with me for several hours keeping me calm and keeping me laughing. I really admire her professionalism, as she continued her high quality work as the hotel room began to fill with people, and even as my photographer began rushing her to finish. She remained cool and precise. As a perfectionist, I truly admire her perfectionism! After she was done, I was so impressed with how everything turned out! She was so right about the makeup looking amazing in photos. I received so many compliments that day from friends, family, and most importantly from my new husband! Scheduling and payments with Vanity Belle were easy as everything was done online, including payment by PayPal. I highly recommend Leah to anyone looking to have their hair and/or makeup done for their special day!
We worked with Leah/Make-up and Dee/Hair and they did a phenomenal job! Everyone looked gorgeous and I have never felt and probably will never feel more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. They were wonderful in every way and I would recommend them to anyone!!!
Victoria and Sarah were both absolutely wonderful! I had my trial day on the same day as my engagement shots, and everything turned out beautifully. My girls and I looked absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day. They really took the time to make sure we were completely happy with the way we looked.
Vanity Belle did hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and me on my wedding day. We had Sarah for hair and Lauren for makeup. Both girls were awesome and helped to make my day perfect! I highly recommend them!

Thanks so much Shari!! Your photos were beautiful. Congrats again:)
Victoria was amazing! She made me feel like the most gorgeous person in the room! I don't normally wear a lot of makeup so she worked with my features to enhance them without feeling heavy and dark. She also did an amazing job with my short hair! She is extremely flexible and listens to her client. She truly has a talent for bringing out the best in anyone!
The team at Vanity Belle are amazing! They were very helpful and accommodating. They squeezed me in for a trial and with only minimal color/style suggestions were able to use their artistic talents to create beautiful end results...and within their quoted time! Sarah and Lauren worked with my mom, bridesmaids and myself on the day of my wedding and were on time, very friendly and worked well with us all!
Victoria and her other stylist did makeup for myself (bride), my bridesmaids and the mother of the bride. She was fantastic. The makeup couldn't have looked better. She is extremely professional and great to work with. I would recommend her to anyone and plan to use her for makeup services again in the future!
Let me start off by saying I am super picky about people doing my makeup, but i would have Victoria do my makeup everyday if I could.... Victoria did the makeup for all 5 bridesmaids, both mothers and myself. Everyone looked soooo beautiful!!! My husband was raving all night about how beautiful I looked. Thank you so much Victoria for making my wedding day so memorable. I will recommend you to all my friends!!!!
When my Bride tells me she hired Victoria of Vanity Belle for her Wedding Day I am nothing less than thrilled. As a wedding photographer I cannot stress enough the importance of a phenomenal makeup artist and Victoria of Vanity Belle does not ever disappoint. She is energetic and fun to be around, always on time and my Bride's always look flawless! If you are looking to enhance your wedding day experience, call Vanity Belle!
Vanity Belle has done hair and make up for countless shoots I have been apart of. Hands down they are the most talented and artistic group of woman I have had the chance to work with. I send all my brides and clients to them. Perfection is the best word for them.

About the Founder
Hi, I'm Victoria Nino, owner and artist of Vanity Belle. I went to school for Art, and have always loved to paint. Over the years, I found it harder and harder to find time to paint. As an artist, not having art in your life really effects your overall being. A close friend inspired me to start painting faces and once I started I couldn't stop! Makeup is my true calling, and I am very passionate about my work. I have hired extremely talented women for my team that share my same passion.
It is our mission to make every single client happy and feel like the most beautiful version of herself, and have some fun doing it!
We look forward to being a part of your special day!
