Perfect Addition to my Wedding "Crew"!
Marina was so great in every way! Very responsive, flexible to my scheduling/venue needs and last minute add ons. She was also the perfect addition to my "getting ready party", a wonderful conversationalist and lovely to work with. Not to mention she did an AMAZING job on my makeup, catering to any of my desired alterations and making me feel comfortable the whole time. Highly recommend!Sent on 11/21/2019

I used Marina for hair services and she used her expertise to match exactly what I thought I wanted during the trial, and then adjusted when I had and idea for a small change on the day of my wedding. She made my bridesmaids so happy with their different looks and hung around to make adjustments in case anyone wanted a change or a touch up. She handled long hair, really short hair, curly hair, thin hair -everyones style held up alllll night and looked beautiful! She’s so nice and really makes you feel at ease! Highly recommend!Sent on 07/03/2019

Hire Marina! She is creative, empathic, listens, and is passionate about her work
I live in Seattle. Marina did my makeup and hair for my destination wedding in Miami. She was a lifesaver! Here's why:
What I loved about Marina is her empathy. She understands brides and what we are going through. An example, on my wedding day, when I was feeling really stressed out while getting my makeup done she used a cooling stone on my face and focused on relaxation points. She went above and beyond what I would expect from a hair and make up artist to do on my big day. It felt like she was part of the wedding!
I had gotten some sunburn in random spots on my back from a beach day before. My dress was backless so this was devastating for me to have sunburn. Marina knew just what to do. She applied special makeup that would not rub off on my dress and covered up the sunburn. It was so natural that you couldn't even tell there was makeup on my back.
She was really thoughtful and listened to my needs. I don't wear a lot of makeup. When we did our trial she talked me through the how and why she applied makeup to my face. It helped me to understand the vision. Because she also works on fashion runways and in films, she knows the right amount of makeup to apply so that you look good on camera and in-person. She was really open to feedback and it was easy to figure out the right look with her. I would describe myself as difficult because I am not used to seeing myself with makeup. Marina made me feel really comfortable asking for changes.
Overall, I was extremely please with my hair style and my makeup. I highly recommend her and would hire her again in a second. It's rare to find someone who can do hair and makeup and will travel to a destination wedding! Thank you so much, Marina! You are so talented!Sent on 05/23/2019
I've worked with Marina for several years now and she's one of my favorites in the area. Very calming and personable working with brides or models alike. Her work speaks for itself; one of the best!
