My name is Stephanie, and I had the honor and pleasure of having Tanja as my makeup and hair artist for my wedding in August for both my court and myself. Words can not even begin to describe her delicate and angelic touch and the atmosphere she brings along with her many talents. She is an amazing woman inside and out. She listens to you, laughs with you, and I'm sure if given the opportunity she would cry with you. I knew the vision I wanted for my makeup an hair but wasn't able to verbally communicate it as well as I thought. After having been to three stylists I knew Tanja was the one. Most stylists rush you, and also don't listen. They take over and assume they're doing you a favor and promise you the day of the wedding it'll look 10 times nicer than in the trial. NOT TANJA! She gives you the exact look for your wedding on the day of the trial; therefore, giving the bride the confidence and assurance that she made the right choice. I truly felt like a princess, and the best part about it is that it lasted ALL DAY!! So for those who are contemplating airbrush vs powder makeup I recommended airbrush. Tanja has the ability to make you look beautiful but most importantly natural.
I can't thank you enough for being part of my wedding day. My mother was thrilled with her hair and makeup (she's a tough customer!) and my sisters and cousin looked gorgeous- their makeup was flawless and lasted all night long. I was especially happy with how my makeup and hair came out. I rarely ever wear more than mascara, and was nervous about getting all made-up for my wedding day, because I didn't want to look like someone else. However, when I got my photos back, I couldn't believe how natural and effortless my makeup looked. It was me, just enhanced. It was perfect! Additionally, my hair stayed the way you styled it all night long- even into the next morning! I had guests telling me they couldn't believe how great it still looked at the end of the night after four hours of dancing.
Your professionalism through out the whole process of trials and communication right up to the day of my wedding was exactly what I was looking for. You really listened to what my mother, my sisters and I wanted, and made the whole process so easy. Of all the things there are to fret about during the wedding planning process and you wedding day, you made hair and makeup (which are such a huge part of the day and lasting memories) completely worry-free. I felt confident and beautiful all evening, and I have you to thank!
I hope you enjoy your holidays and I will absolutely be referring you to anyone I know getting married in the future! Thank you so much, again, Tanja!
Tanja is a very talented hair and make up artist. She is great at what she does and super fun to hang out with. She is kind and patient, really listens to your ideas, and comes up with wonderful suggestions of her own. She made my mother, sister, cousin and I all look and feel completely beautiful on the day of the wedding. I can’t recommend her highly enough! Sophie
Tanja is such a creative and talented make-up artist and hair stylist! She is also very reliable. From the moment you meet her you gain a great friendship with her. She is such a beautiful person inside and out. The day of my wedding she helped calm my nerves. You talk with her and you feel like you have known her for years. She made me look like a princess the day of my wedding. I'm so glad I chose her to do my hair and makeup because all through out the day everyone was complimenting my hair and makeup. And when I got the pictures I was so impressed at how she did my makeup. Thank you again Tanja.
Tanja---you made us look AMAZING! Our hair and makeup stayed perfect all day and I cannot tell you how many compliments I got all through the night. Thank you for making the best day of my life even more special.
You are wonderful!
Thanks so much for doing our hair and make up - my now husband was loving how I looked on the day! We really enjoyed your company and we all felt really relaxed...apart from putting on the dress - thank goodness you were there to help with all those ties!
Our hair and make up were perfect on the day - thanks very much Tanja.Rachel
Thanks, Tanja! It was such a pleasure to work with you. On the day of the wedding you did my hair, as well as my best friend's and two sisters. Each of us looked gorgeous, and what I liked best is that you listened to what each of us wanted, looked at photos we had sent you, and then created a hairstyle for each woman that fit her wishes and personality, so we didn't feel like clones. My best friend's "mad men"-ish hairstyle (the updo in the black dress) is a case in point. And in addition to being creative and talented, you were super professional, arriving punctually and sticking to the planned schedule so that everyone was ready in time despite the early hour!
Thank you for being a part of our special day!
