TRIAL RUN: To ensure your peace of mind, our service begins with a trial run of your chosen hair and makeup style, with a full consultation and professional advice. We make your vision a reality.
CREATIVE HAIR DESIGN: Whether your style is soft and romantic, elegant and sophisticated, vintage and unique, modern and contemporary, we can create a look that is perfectly suited to your image. Gorgeous chignons, up-dos, low-dos, side-dos, down-dos, half-up half-down hair styles, long loose curls, creative braids, finger waves, body waves, blow-dry, rollers, knots, twists, pleats – We can create it all.
MAKEUP APPLICATION: From natural, radiant makeup to a full glam look, we create looks that make you the center of attention. Your look may be as natural or dramatic as you desire. You are our inspiration. Our highly trained certified makeup artists will use M.A.C makeup and high quality professional products and brands to ensure a flawless, picture perfect look.
AIRBRUSH MAKEUP: We use TEMPTU Airbrush system and makeup line. We apply a light-weight makeup through an air gun machine that produces a thin, even layer of makeup. Airbrush makeup will give a natural-looking finish while offering a flawless coverage that last longer than regular makeup.
HAIR PIECE APPLICATION: Our professionals will fix up your hair in a way that no one will be able to tell you are wearing a hairpiece. Our goal is to blend the natural hair with the hairpiece to serve as a base. Hairpieces are perfect solutions for creating fuller looking hairstyles. Hair pieces are used on your hair to create your favorite hairstyles.
CLIP- IN HAIR EXTENSIONS: If your hair is not long enough or is not the right amount or texture for the hairstyle you have picked, our hairstylists can add clip-In hair extensions to create your dream hairstyle. Clip-In hair extensions are instant clips that are seamless, and made with real human hair that can easily be curled, straightened or styled and can be re-used and applied with no heat or chemicals and don’t require any maintenance.
TAPE-IN HAIR EXTENSIONS: Tape-In hair extensions are ultra clear thin strips that are long lasting and have the benefit with extra length, healthy texture or additional volume and color. They are natural looking, light weight, very comfortable to wear, easy to maintain and designed to be re-used. Our professionals are experts in adding hair extensions to match both the color and the wave pattern.
EYELASH EXTNESIONS: Eyelash extensions are a glamorous way to extend the length and thickness of natural eyelashes. Our makeup artists offer the band lash method and the cluster method. The band lash method creates a more dramatic look. Cluster lashes are clumped of lashes bonded together in a V shape applied one by one and creates a natural look. Both methods are weightless, wonderful and truly transformative.
EYEBROW SHAPING: Our professionals use the tweezers, scissors and comb to shape the eyebrows and remove the unwanted facial hair. This is the best way to prevent redness, rashes and breakouts for people with sensitive skin. It is used to give clean lines, perfect shapes and create a nice arch for the eyebrows.

I couldn't be happier with my decision to choose Makeovers On Call for my wedding! When I first contacted them, they immediately responded to my inquiry and answered all my questions. Their customer service is absolutely out of this world. At my trial, I had so much fun and I have never looked this good in my life. I also, learned how to do my own makeup. My hair looked way nicer than the picture that I brought with me and Tara did a wonderful job of replicating that on my wedding day. The girls arrived ahead of schedule on the wedding day and did a great job of accommodating my mom’s and bridesmaids' requests. Makeovers On call team is incredibly talented, professional, and friendly. I highly recommend them. Thank you Tara, Becky, Jackleen and Vanessa for all your hard work!!Sent on 04/29/2013

I was very happy with Makeovers on Call. Tara was very nice and did a fantastic job on hair and makeup. She and one assistant worked basically non-stop to do hair and makeup for 8 of us and everyone looked great! The makeup and hair lasted all night, even despite some wind during pictures and the ceremony. I was really happy with the results and would definitely recommend Tara to other brides!Sent on 10/29/2015

Tara did a fantastic job! I don't wear a lot of make up so I was kind of concerned about being too made up on my wedding day - I wanted to look like myself - but the make up was perfect. It didn't feel heavy and it stayed on all day long. Both of my bridesmaids and my mom and mother-in-law all looked beautiful as well. Tara was very helpful throughout the process. Since I don't wear a lot of make up or do a lot to my hair, I was unsure about what exactly I wanted but she helped me and it wound up being better than I could have imagined! It was great that they came right to the hotel to do everything - it made the whole day much less stressful. I would definitely recommend Tara!Sent on 04/23/2015
