Esther contacted us early on in 2010 for her late summer wedding in San Francisco. She wanted natural beauty makeup, a side swept bang, long loose curls done half up / half down. We had a blast at the trial, Mei worked with her to get the perfect look.
It was a pleasure working with Esther and her bridesmaids in her bridal suite at the Intercontinental Hotel (fantastic views!). Enjoy these photos from one of San Francisco’s finest, Carmen Alvarez.
Like many brides these days, I considered doing my own hair and make-up to save money, especially after I found out the price point for wedding hair and make-up stylists. Then one day I stumbled across the website for Triple Twist. I was so impressed by the before and after pictures that I immediately made an appointment for a trial.
At the trial, Mei did an awesome job! I especially love the individual fake eyelashes! She is an expert at applying them and I couldn’t even feel them once they were on. They take before and after pictures and send them to you via email the same day. It is super awesome to see what the makeup will look like on camera. Also during the trial, I found out that Mei used to be a performer for Cirque de Soleil. How cool is that?
After the trial, I was so impressed that I immediately booked Triple Twist for my wedding. Just happens it was just in time because another bride was also interested in my date!
Fast-forward to the day of my wedding. Robert showed up right on time, if not a bit early to set up and Mei followed in right after. They were extremely professional. I got compliments all day on how beautiful my hair and make-up looked. It’s definitely all because of Mei!
Incidentally, I had hired another hair-stylist to work on my bridesmaids(not associated with Triple Twist at all). This person decided to NOT show up on my wedding day. When Mei found out, she graciously offered to help. She whipped up hairstyles for three of my bridesmaids AND with time to spare! Mei totally saved us that day and I couldn’t be more grateful…
