    Samantha is fantastic! And yes she has the magic touch with the brush. She made us look tribal ‘wild’ for our school themed fund raiser. So professional and so lovely!

    I had the pleasure of having Olivia do my hair and makeup for a themed work party. She was fantastic! She was punctual, pleasant and professional. She did a great job and was also calm and detailed. She asked for feedback as she went and was happy to modify as I asked. Wonderful job!! Super happy customer and will definitely ask her for assistance next time I am going to a themed event 🙂

    Hi Samantha, This is Lisa Pare, sorry for the late review. Samantha and her assistant Mua did my makeup and hair, as well as my 3 friends. We loved how professional and friendly they were, the makeup and hair was absolutely flawless, she did the exact makeup and hair designs that I wanted, everything went smoothly and we were so happy with the results. Thanks a lot. I would recommend you to my family and friends.
