    Amazing, Professional, and Talented

    My experience with Muah Makeup and Hair was phenomenal. From the beginning, the ladies were professional, friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and very talented in their craft. The communication was excellent. On the wedding day, the ladies did a great job with my bridal party and myself. They didn’t just make me feel like a random customer, they made me feel like a friend. Thank you ladies!!

    The Best Experience with MUAH!!

    Bianca and Katie hands down have the best makeup/hair service. These two women are absolutely incredible! During my trial and on the wedding day, I felt so comfortable and at ease which was a huge win for me! Even in the time frame we had, they both stayed completely calm. They are incredibly professional, experienced, and timely. I felt so lucky to have both Katie and Bianca there to help me feel soo confident. I felt like my makeup brought out the best features and this made the whole rest of the day so perfect. I highly recommend using MUAH for your special day!!!

    Top notch service and gorgeous makeup

    MUAH Makeup and Hair was one of my venue’s preferred vendors, and I decided to go with them after seeing all the glowing reviews. I went to Bianca’s house for my makeup trial, and she was so nice and made me feel relaxed. While the results were not totally what I was looking for, Bianca graciously took all my feedback and told me the changes would be no problem. She imparted her knowledge as a longtime professional makeup artist, but has no ego and truly wants to make her clients happy.

    On my wedding day, we had to deal with the logistics of the Big Sur Marathon running right in front of the venue. That meant our vendors and wedding party had to get on limited, timed caravans to be escorted through the race.

    Bianca’s assistant was coming from the other direction so she arrived at the venue bright and early. Despite Bianca leaving very early to get to her caravan, a mishap with some other drivers in front of her sent her to the back of the waiting line, and she couldn’t leave until the next caravan two hours later. But Bianca’s assistant got to work and she did an amazing job with all my bridesmaids and the moms.

    When Bianca finally arrived, she was so apologetic even though it absolutely wasn’t her fault at all. She even insisted on refunding the travel fee. She focused entirely on my makeup and I was blown away by the results. Not only did she listen to my changes, but she took my vision to another level, and I felt so incredibly beautiful. I absolutely 100% endorse MUAH Makeup and Hair, and if they didn’t live so far away, I would hire them for any special event I have in the future.

Katie & Bianca are the best in the business. I've been following them for a while on Instagram and it was great to finally get a chance to work with some of their brides. Being a videographer, I pour over hours of footage I take of these brides, and it's clear that girls who work with them have that extra something special. These girls go the extra mile and I can't recommend them highly enough!
