I cannot sing enough praise for Kristina. She is professional and communicative via phone or email. Her makeup and hair artistry is excellent! She made me feel so comfortable and confident in my own skin. I came to her with a lot of ideas and unsure of what would look best on me with my dress. I also do not wear a lot of makeup. She was patient and generous with her time, guiding me through her advice on how best to minimize my insecurities while maximizing my comfort and beauty. Ultimately we landed on a fresh face that wasn't a far leap from my typical "no makeup" look. My husband said I looked exactly like myself with even more of a glow. My makeup and hair stayed in place through hours and hours of dancing! My moms and sister in law were so happy with their hair and makeup. Of course, I absolutely loved mine. I got so many compliments that night! You should absolutely work with Kristina. My day wouldn't have been the same without her. It's both her skill and her aura that keep you calm, confident, and glammed up!
"Kristina did an incredible job for my December (2021) wedding. Not only is she great with hair and makeup, but she has a strong work ethic. She is quick to respond to any questions you may have. I also requested multiple changes to the original contract. Kristina was flexible and made the right adjustments to the timeline to make sure we were on time. I would highly recommend Kristina for your hair and makeup needs!"
"I would give Kristina 10 stars if I could! I had the opportunity to work with Kristina for my wedding and she and her team (Aline) did a wonderful job on hair and makeup services for myself and my bridal party. Kristina is very sweet, so talented, and always responded promptly to my emails and any questions or concerns I had. She took into consideration all the different skin types and requests of all the bridal party, yet keeping what I wanted in mind as well. Kristina did a wonderful natural look with an up-do that withstood the wind at our wedding venue. Kristina always wore a mask and sanitized all surfaces between clients, so I felt very safe. I would highly recommend Kristina for your hair and makeup needs! I will definitely be using her again for future events."
"Kristina was amazing! The glam for my elopement was beautiful and 3 weeks later Im still getting compliments on it from family and friends who are seeing photos. Kristina was super responsive about coordinating the arrival time the day of my elopement. Her timing was perfect. She traveled to the Carmel Valley to meet me so traveling to get my hair and makeup done was one less thing I had to stress about. She was so calm and collected the whole time. Anyone who is looking to get hair and makeup done I would highly suggest Kristina! Her work is jaw dropping!"
"Seriously, book Kristina for your wedding, you won't regret it. Kristina is great at what she does and is also a totally genuine person and sweetheart. When I reached out to Kristina initially for the makeup + hair trial, she was responsive and super flexible on scheduling. She even came to my house to do the trial. She made me feel comfortable the whole time, and would check at each juncture to make sure that the look is what I was going for. I wanted the look to be bronze-y and classic, and wanted individual lashes so that I looked a bit more natural (not to mention my eyes would be more comfortable), and she completely nailed the look. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early with her crew for a 7am start time, started the first girls within 10 minutes of setting up, made some adjustment to my look based on the trial, and though we did run a little behind schedule on makeup and hair (I did have 7 bridesmaids, after all), she was able to finish me up without making me feel rushed. I also think her prices are super reasonable for being in the Bay Area. I highly recommend Kristina"
"I am so happy I booked Kristina for my wedding day hair and makeup and would highly recommend her. She was very responsive to my inquiries and flexible with scheduling a trial session (and she was willing to come to me for the trial session and where I was getting ready on the day of, a huge plus!) I have had my makeup done several times in the past and in each instance I never felt pretty and always ended up looking older than I am. Kristina took the time to listen to my concerns and wishes about how I wanted to look on my wedding day. Full coverage instagram makeup may work for some but it's certainly not the look I go for on an daily basis and for sure not the look I wanted for my wedding day. She gave me exactly the look I wanted: natural, sheer coverage, and an eye shadow look that property enhanced my slightly hooded eyes! She is also the first hair stylist that did not automatically tease my hair to create a huge mountain of volume at the top of my head, the pageant hairdo is so not my style, lol. It takes skill to know when to hold back and really bring out the natural features and Kristina is a pro at that. Plus, she is super sweet and dedicated to making sure you feel your best on your special day. Schedule Kristina for your bridal make up, you will not be disappointed!"
"Kristina is AMAZING!! I went to my bridal trial and she exceeded all of my expectations, I am SO happy I chose her for my BIG DAY! She is so easy and nice to work with, I know she'll knock it out of the park the day of my wedding! I highly recommend her, she follows your vision and gives amazing recommendations for your bride and bridal party looks! I wanted an Arabian nights inspired eye and she nailed it! Glamorous bridal look. My skin felt refreshed even with the makeup on and she matched my skin tone so perfectly and quickly, looks gorgeous in photos!! She knows what she's doing I am so impressed and you will be too, she does hair too!! THANK YOU KRISTINA!!"
"I booked Kristina for my wedding off of yelp reviews since I don't live in SF, and I am so happy I did. She was completely professional, she showed up on time and my hair and make up were completed in a timely manner. She worked with me in deciding which hair style and make up looked best (I can be a little indecisive sometimes lol). The hair and make up lasted all up to the end of the night. Super super happy with her services and I would totally book again."
"Kristina is the best! She did my hair and makeup for my engagement photos and for my wedding. We also did a trial session in which she let me try three different hairdos because I was being indecisive. I showed her pictures of what I wanted and she was able to recreate the looks for me. She is very flexible with scheduling and will come to you. She always arrived early and happily stayed as long as she was needed. She friendly and positive and does a great job. I highly recommend her!!!"
