I used Alina for my wedding in December, and she was great! We had 10 people (myself, 6 bridesmaids, 3 moms) getting both hair and makeup done. Alina brought 2 helpers and efficiently ran through the whole group of us - getting us all done in about 3.5 hours. We started the hair and makeup routine around 8am, took pictures in the afternoon, the wedding started at 6pm, and after-party lasted until about 3am, and everyone’s hair and makeup stayed looking fresh the whole night! My girls kept commenting about how they loved both their hair and makeup - I was actually kind of sad when I had to take it off/out. I did a trial with Alina earlier in the year and sent her detailed comments back about what I wanted changed (shift from more natural to “glam”), and she easily adapted it for the wedding. Pricing is a little expensive (alas, everything in DC is), but you get what you pay for, and you definitely don’t want to skimp on hair and makeup for the most photographed day of your life. I will definitely use her again in the future for anything that warrants a professional makeup job!Sent on 02/25/2020

Great experience with Alina!
Alina did hair and make up for my wedding (bride and three others). She was professional, prompt, and easy to work with. We were all happy with how our hair and make up looked and it showed really well in pictures.Sent on 10/20/2019

After having a great trial run with Alina, I hired her for my wedding. She is efficient, quick, and does an amazing job of translating what you want into real life. I particularly enjoyed her commitment to ensuring I wouldn't look unnatural by asking detailed questions about my makeup usage.Sent on 05/05/2020
On the big day, I had two bridesmaids unexpectedly request to have their hair done and while it did put us into a slight time crunch, Alina and team worked magic to get it all done! I would highly recommend Alina if you are looking for quality hair and makeup!

Alina is a wonderful make-up artist! She will come to your home or hotel for wedding make-up and is very professional. She is very talented and can put make-up on women who usually wear very little and make it look and feel totally natural. I highly recommend her services!
