I cannot say enough good things about Heather and her team. Not only did she listen to me as I described the look that I wanted to achieve but she also gave a constructive professional feedback as well as advice on things I could do prior to the wedding to fully achieve the look that I desired. It is clear that not only do they want to give you the look you desire but they also want you to look your absolute best on your wedding day. Heather and her team are professional without being too serious and made both my bridal trial and wedding day a blast. She was there with her handy tool belt to give touch ups during photos and to fix a falling veil before walking down the aisle. Heather and her team come highly recommended from me!Sent on 11/17/2017

Simply the Best Wedding Hair and Makeup Artists
Heather Van Houten and her gifted team of HVH artists transformed me into a glamorous bride by providing both hair and makeup services on my wedding day. I looked and felt like my most beautiful self on my special day. They helped me feel confident to pose in photos and as I walked down the aisle.
My makeup stayed flawless for the entire day! The lashes that Heather artfully placed made my eyes “pop” in photos! My gorgeous hairstyle felt like “me” but elevated – exactly what I had hoped for! Chelsea recommended and executed the most beautiful half-up/half-down style with a twist and soft waves.
The getting ready process was so comforting and fun with these ladies’ presence and professionalism! My mother and bridesmaids looked stunning! Our hair and makeup photographed beautifully!
Do yourself a favor and hire the most incredibly talented hair and makeup artists serving the Tucson area ASAP to ensure you the most beautiful and special day.

HVH is the best. Hands down. Game over.
My short review for Heather and her team is that these ladies are awesome. I had Rebekah (hair) and Gabrielle (makeup) working on me for my wedding and they did a phenomenal job. Do yourself a favor and book them. If you want to read a longer review, see below :)
Gabrielle did a great job on my makeup. She helped me choose a look based on my dress and vibe for the wedding. On the wedding day itself, my bridesmaids all went a little darker, so she asked me if I wanted to match them. I appreciated that she was able to adapt on that day and thought to keep all the ladies looking cohesive. Every time she has done my makeup, I've felt transformed. Also, I was crying all day at my wedding and my makeup lasted - no black streaks from mascara, no noticeable discoloring. She does a really great job!
The path for my hairstyle was more complicated. I had a lot of trouble visualizing how I wanted my hair to look and I kept changing my mind. After a few trials, a mini meltdown, and some chatting, Rebekah found a hairstyle that was gold - and we did it for the first time on my wedding day itself. She showed me an image and it was like the heavens opened up. I said, "Yes!! That is IT!" She gave me an edgier twist on a classic look and I absolutely loved it. Many people complimented my look, but several specifically praised my hair. Rebekah nailed it. I looked and felt awesome. I appreciated how she was willing to go outside of the typical wedding style for something different and fresh. Moreover, Rebekah was incredibly understanding and accommodating throughout the entire process. I put her through the wringer a little bit with my anxiety, but she handled it like a pro and was so kind. I highly recommend her!
I want to give a quick shoutout to Sydnee Rivera for doing an amazing balayage job on my hair. It really made a difference in giving my hair dimension and making Rebekah's styling even more prominent.
Finally, I had a few bridesmaids who wanted to be a little more "extra" than the normal wedding look. Since Heather was already on site for another wedding, she volunteered to help, for which I am so grateful. She and everyone on her team go above and beyond; they really take care of their brides and bridal parties. They are also so fun and make you look your absolute best. Not only did I feel amazing on my wedding day, but so did all my bridesmaids. They loved their hairstyles and makeup looks and raved about them for days afterward. I could go on and on about HVH, but this review is already very long. If you're needing a professional MUAH team for your wedding, book HVH and Artists. You'll be glad you did.
Heather and her team are incredible!! Not only do they do stunning work and make every bride feel gorgeous, but they are fun and super sweet too! With these gals around, the morning of your wedding will feel like a party and you will come out looking absolutely gorgeous. We can't say enough good things about these ladies!
I have had my tables at events that Heather was the makeup artists for and I can attest for her professionalism, love for makeup and dedication to the field. Every single lady I've seen get out of her chair has been nothing short of amazing!! I would recommend Heather and her team to ALL of my brides!
We love working with Heather and her team. We know the bride and her bridal party will be transformed and enjoy the process. Heather is fast yet pays attention to detail.
