Hair & Makeup that will last all night in humid 90 degree weather!!
Funny enough, I had experience getting my hair and makeup from Akiyo before my wedding day. She did the hair and makeup for my sister’s wedding a few years ago so I knew that her hair and makeup would last all day and all night AND look good. I was thrilled to find out that Akiyo was available for hair and makeup on my wedding day.Sent on 07/02/2021
She was a dream to work with and I loved that during the entire process, she would listen carefully and adjust based on our preferences for hair and makeup, and make sure it worked for the texture of our hair or our skin tone. She really knows her makeup inside and out and was able to use that knowledge to make us look our very best and have it last all night.
It was a hot summer city wedding in a venue with no AC. My hair and makeup stayed intact the entire night. She was flexible with me adding more services as I got closer to the date and throughout the whole process. I would definitely book her again for any future events where I needed hair and makeup done.

A wonderful and meticulous hair and makeup artist
I booked Akiyo for my wedding hair and makeup after searching for an artist who could work well with Asian hair and facial features. I'm not a huge hair and makeup person so it was so great to be able to find an artist who made me feel special, without being overly done.Sent on 07/11/2020
After several not-so-great trials with many other artists, I was very happy with Akiyo. Even before my trial, we had extensive communication about my normal hair and makeup preferences and she made sure to incorporate my preferences in my final look. She was very careful about my look and our trial was several hours long because of her meticulousness and frequent adjustments to make sure that I was 100% happy and comfortable with my look. She was also extremely easy to work with; we chatted a lot about her hobbies (including surfing) and she was not judgmental at all about my beauty preferences.
Unfortunately because of the pandemic, my wedding has now been cancelled. Akiyo has also been very accommodating and easy to communicate with. I will be using Akiyo's services for any future events that I have. Definitely recommend!

Made my day extra special!
I got married last year during COVID and even though it was a small and intimate wedding, Akiyo and her team made it extra special. My sister, two moms, and myself got our hair and makeup done. Akiyo was so meticulous with my makeup and hair. I only had a general idea of what I wanted (something natural, but still glam), but I didn't expect Akiyo to deliver it so perfectly! I was really happy with the results. My makeup stayed on perfectly on that sunny day of July. They were very professional, punctual, and kind.Sent on 06/08/2021
