“Lena did a FANTASTIC job -- from initial communication and setting up the appointment to her work on the day of a friend's wedding.

I would definitely work with her again and will refer her to anyone in need of a professional make up artist.

She arrived on time and well-prepared. She was very in tune with my want to have a natural look but something special. I felt beautiful and confident the whole night -- the make up survived the many tears I cried during the ceremony, and I needed only to occasionally touch up the lip color.

Thank you, Lena! You helped make a special day even more wonderful.”

"Lena did my hair and makeup for my wedding, as well as makeup for my mom and hair for my daughter and sister.

WOWWWW she knocked it out of the park.

My sister and mom looked fabulous. My daughter had been talking for months about hairstyles she wanted and Lena made her Pinterest-worthy updo look incredible.

And as for me, I felt gorgeous. I had a hard time describing what I wanted but Lena was intuitive enough to know what I meant and made it happen.

I couldn't be more pleased!

I loved working with Lena! She did hair and makeup for me and my wedding party and couldn't have been more pleased!!

She is so calm which I love when a bride is stressed! Our makeup was flawless and our hairstyles were beautiful!!

Lena is a sweetheart to work with and would recommend her to all brides.
