Tatiana is an absolute sweetheart! She is extremely talented in her profession and a complete perfectionist. She is so patient with a very calming presence, she truly cares about creating the exact look you desire. She will not stop until both you and her are completely satisfied, and the results are beautiful. I visited her a couple of times before my wedding, once just to get my eyebrows re-shaped and she sent me away with a lovely braid as well as perfectly groomed eyebrows!! She really does go above and beyond. On my wedding day I was so happy with both my hair and make-up, it was just exactly how I wanted it. She also did my bridesmaids hair and both mothers hair and make up with the help from her assistant Natasha (who is also another excellent stylist). We all looked a million dollars!Sent on 07/14/2015

Our daughter had a 'trial' makeup session with another vendor for her wedding, with results she was unhappy with. But, her workload as a doctor prevented her from finding another. Her Maid of Honor and BFF stepped in at the last minute, found Braid, and they worked from 7AM to 3PM on the wedding Sunday to make up bride, bridesmaids, and moms - and, the results were spectacular and all enjoyed it immensely. Highly recommended!Sent on 04/04/2015

This was my second time using Braid and Makeup Studio's services and I was as satisfied as the first time. Tatiana is very professional, has a very nice personality and she has a great taste! She listens to your needs but also gives a very good advice re. making your look suitable for the event. I will definitely go back!Sent on 11/12/2014
