Stress-Free Wedding Morning!
I had Valerie for makeup and Danielle for hair for my 8/10/19 wedding and I have so many wonderful things to say about these artists, as well as this company!Sent on 08/19/2019
First of all, the professionalism is top notch. All of my logistics went through co-owner, Ioana. She is super responsive, accommodating, and organized. She even texted me the night before my wedding to wish me well! How sweet is that?!
My artists, Valerie and Danielle, helped to make the morning go by so smoothly. I got to just hang out with my bridesmaids and take some time to enjoy everyone's company. Both ladies worked quickly and efficiently and were just all around very sweet and great to be around.
I used to hate having my makeup done by other people, but I knew I wanted a professional for my wedding day. Now, I don't think I will ever be satisfied with how I do my own makeup! Valerie did a beautiful job on me and all the girls, and it lasted all day! Her color choices were so flattering!
To the contrary, I never do my hair, but it is extremely rare to find someone who can make mine stay in place. This was no issue with Danielle. Not only did she create something beautiful from my inspiration pictures, but it stayed in place all day! My mom and bridesmaids looked stunning as well!
The work of my artists truly tied together my wedding day look and really made me feel like a bride! Thank you!

Highly recommend RBB!
I never like getting my hair & make-up done, so Jen & Ioana had their work cut out for them, and they 110% delivered! Day of, I last minute decided to change hair & make-up, and Ioana & Jen were incredibly great accommodating. I also had a last-minute addition to the schedule, and it was so easy to work with them to get my SIL on the schedule. Overall, I definitely recommend RBB -- they helped to make the day special & fun, were incredibly easy to work with, very flexible, and super talented!Sent on 07/20/2019

Talented artists + organized management!
Rare Bird Beauty made a fantastic partner for all of our wedding beauty needs. Leading up to the event, Jen and Iona proved incredible organized, helpful, responsive and insightful. Their communication platform made planning more streamlined, which i greatly appreciated throughout the process. We were able to add a second artist just a few months before the wedding, giving us flexibility.Sent on 07/22/2019
They paired me with the artist of my choice, Shannon, who was INCREDIBLE!!! Every single one of my bridesmaids LOVED their makeup, and I was obsessed with mine. I would hire Shannon time and time again.
