Asal Studios is THE best option for makeup and hair! Asal is super talented and actually cares about her work - something that is hard to find in the wedding industry. I had gone to a couple of other hair/makeup trials and was not pleased with their quality of work. Asal was a lifesaver and I'm so happy that I found her! She took her time during the wedding trial and made sure I was satisfied with the style. I was relieved to see that she used quality products and kept her makeup clean. My hair is very thick and many people are not able to work with it, but Asal styled it like a pro! The best part was that she didn't complain and did everything with a smile! :)
I received SO many compliments after my trial and on my wedding day. Asal also made sure that everyone in my bridal party looked fabulous as well! She was on time, friendly, and made everyone feel special. Asal has a calming presence that definitely helps with wedding day jitters! She made sure that everyone looked perfect before leaving. Our makeup and hair lasted all night and everyone was extremely satisfied. I would recommend Asal to all my family and friends!
Asal was great! She worked around our time frame, very sweet, attentive and easy to work with. My family and I loved working with her and wouldn't trust anyone else with our hair/makeup.
I had the pleasure of having Asal prep me for my wedding. Everything was very easy from the begining. She always returned any of phoncalls and texts promptly. She is amazing, very talented, friendly, caring, and patient. She made sure I feel comfortable and listened to what I wanted and requested. I highly recommend her for any event.
I had Asal for my bridal makeup and hair, and I could not have been happier. She is a very talented artist, yet so humble. I first had a trial session with her, and I was very impressed with her work that day. I asked her for some last minute changes on the day of, and she easily accommodated my requests. After seeing the photos of my trial makeup, my mother decided to have Asal for her makeup and hair on my wedding day as well. She was very much satisfied too. I should note that Asal is very professional and personally very patient. My apartment was a bit hectic on my wedding day while she was working, yet she easily managed to keep herself and us focused so that we could be ready on time. She also has a calming attitude which is much appreciated on the wedding day. During the wedding, I received a lot of compliments about both my makeup and hair. Overall, I think Asal is a 5 star artist.
Asal was truly amazing. She listened to exactly what I was looking for and paid close attention to the details. She did all the necessary steps to ensure my look was long-lasting, not too overdone, and still fresh-looking regardless of all the dancing and photos taken. My bridal party was hard to work with too but she managed to deal with all the challenges and varying personalities without a sweat! Very professional. I highly recommend Asal and her team!
Asal is AMAZING, she is a true artist! Her attention to detail with both my hair and makeup, along with the makeup for my bridesmaids, was nothing short of perfection! We were receiving compliments the entire evening which is exactly how long everything lasted. Asal is very patient, sweet-natured and her prices are extremely reasonable. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Asal, she will have you looking and feeling like a queen!!
Asal is such a talented makeup artist and she will make you look flawless! She's so sweet and knows what she's doing! I highly recommend going with Asal Studios.
Asal is an amazing makeup artist. Her work is a masterpiece. My wedding makeup was beautiful and I received so many compliments :)
Asal's work is unbelievably flawless! She did a great job with my makeup and hair in addition to her great personality, flexibility and she is really considerate. She was able to understand what I wanted for my makeup and hair and translate into a beautiful art. I contacted her a week before my wedding (that happened on a Monday) and she accepted to work with me. If you are looking for an amazing makeup artist you may consider Asal and you'll be as amazed as I was!
To put it simply Asal is wonderful! Not only is she immensly talented and skillful at what she does, she is one of the more caring, customer service focused individuals that I have ever encountered. I recieved numerous compliments for my hair and make-up the day of my wedding and my experience with Asal filled my day with confidence knowing that I looked my very best. I will trust and recommend Asal for future events with confidence. It is always reassuring to know that you have great talent available when needed. Not only is Asal a great talent, her personal touch is unmatched.
Thank you so much Yalda, I was my pleasure to be a part of your big day. Best of luck!!!!
I had the pleasure of working with Asal and her team for 4 wedding related events and I couldn't be happier with her and her services. Asal is a skilled makeup artist and hair stylist and she made us all (including myself, the bride) looks our best. I will continue to go to her for any furniture events as I'm so satisfied with her wonderful work.
Thank you very much Jasmine! It was my pleasure to be part of your big days!!! I really enjoyed to working with you and your friends and family. Best of luck!!!
Asal did a beautiful job on my hair and makeup, as well as my mom and my two sisters, for my wedding day. She listened to exactly what I wanted and her work came out even better than I had ever imagined. I received so many compliments and felt like a princess. Asal is an absolute pleasure to work with - she is funny, upbeat, and kind and she helped keep my stress levels down on my special day. I'd recommend her to any and all brides in the DC area!
Thank you so much Elham. It was my pleasure to be a part of your beautiful day.
I'm glad you enjoyed your experience.
Wishing you and your husband a life time of happiness!!!
Asal is like the meaning behind her her name. She is as close to perfection you can get and will not be disappointed which is transparent in her work! Imagine, it was just one week away from my wedding and my mother and I didn’t have our hair and makeup booked, any other bride would have freaked out.
Asal was highly recommended by where I do facials (Nilou Spa), the combination of prepping my skin and Asal's art made me feel like a bride, I am extremely grateful that we all crossed paths!
I went to Asal for my hair and makeup trial one week before my wedding; she worked with my mom and I to create the look we envisioned and was very accommodating making minor changes after for our wedding. I had her do both airbrush (trial) and foundation (wedding), both lasted all night. I highly recommend future brides to do their first and hopefully only trial with Asal for both bridal hair and makeup.
Further, bridal hair and makeup trials are very important and a must, as they set the tone, and is a chance for brides and their artist to be acquainted and comfortable with one another. I really appreciate her passion and dedication following up after both the my trial and our wedding, that meant a lot.
On the day of our wedding, she arrived at our hotel on time and waited patiently despite a no show from our rental company which pushed back things. She was an extremely calming presence and took time perfecting every detail. Everyone complimented me on how beautiful I looked and l was the happiest bride ever smiling all night. Also, I will never forget the look of my husband when he saw me walk down the isle, he could not stop smiling and take his eyes off me!
Our hair and makeup lasted all night through the tears, rain, multiple ceremonies, and nonstop dancing without any touch ups. Not to mention beautiful photos! She exceeded our expectations and a genuinely wonderful person. We will book all future events with Asal, and she is just AMAZING!
Thank you so much Sanaz. It was my pleasure to be a part of your beautiful day. I really enjoyed to working with you and you were look stunning.
Best of wishes to you and to your husband!!!
I would recommend Asal to everyone! She is extremely talented, friendly, and flexible. Also, her prices are very reasonable for this area. I received so many compliments on my bridal shower and wedding hair. My mom did too. Our hair lasted all night! We are Middle-Eastern and our hair is not easy to do, but she is an expert. Look no further!
Thank you so much Leila. It was my pleasure to be a part of your big day!
Wishing you a life time happiness!!!
Asal did an amazing job! She was flexible, understanding, punctual, so nice, personable, responsive and a joy to be with. I appreciated that she checked in a few times before the wedding to be sure of details. She offered a free trial which I really enjoyed. I highly recommend going with a trial so you can get to know one another and figure out what exactly you want. If you book with her she credits the trial cost against the total cost. I learned wedding make-up is much different than the every-day look. She has a way of bringing out peoples' best features and accenting them. I wanted a natural look but wanted coverage for photos. She showed me that adding lashes and a little color to my lips didn't have to be loud but could be complementary to my style. I was so pleased with how my whole bridal party looked (they were too!). I wish I could post pics! Don't wait until the last minute to book your make-up and hair, it's important too. I think her services are a great value.
Thank you very much Lisa. It was my pleasure to be a part of your special day!!!I'm glad you enjoyed your experience!

Thank you very much sweetheart. It was my pleasure to be part of your big day! Best of luck!
Asal Studios was amazing. My bridesmaids looked beautiful and I looked perfect! I would recommend Asal to all the brides out there. She makes sure you love it!
Marisol, thank you very much sweetheart!! It was my pleasure to be part of your big event! Best of luck!!!
Asal is a perfectionist when it comes to hair and makeup and the end result truly shows! She not only nailed my vision, she exceeded expectations. Her attention to detail is incredible. I had the pleasure of meeting Asal through a mutual friend. Right away I could tell why our friend spoke so highly of Asal. The way she carries herself through friendships is the same way she carries herself professionally.
The same week I met Asal, my bridal shower was a few days later. The morning of my shower, Asal invited me over for a hair and makeup trial. I was absolutely blown away! My hair and makeup was flawless!! I received endless compliments that day!
Unfortunately I had already booked my makeup artist and told a childhood friend that she could do my hair for the wedding. The hair trial with my friend ended up being a complete disaster. That day, I made an emergency call to Asal. Thankfully she was still available on my wedding date and I booked her immediately!
On the day of the wedding, my makeup artist was good but didn’t understand my vision like Asal did. As I walked into the bathroom where Asal was styling my bridesmaids hair, she could see the look on my face (as much as I tried to hide it). Without missing a beat, she shut the door behind me and took action immediately. Asal, corrected my makeup and it looked stunning!
I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her! She went above and beyond on things that I didn't even ask her to do. I am truly blessed that our paths crossed. Asal and her team will forever be my go to whenever I need my hair and makeup done professionally.
Your biggest fan,
Thank you very much Melanie. It was my pleasure to be part of you beautiful day!!!
Wishing you and your husband a life time of happiness!
Asal is extremely professional! She is very detail oriented and more importantly she has a lot of passion for her job. My makeup and hair were flawless. She did exactly what I asked for and she nailed it!!! she exceeded my expectations!!! I received so many compliments at my wedding and from many unknown people when I was coming out of the hotel. She made my especial day an extra especial one!!! Her quality of work is just simply the best!!! :)
Thank you very much Katy, it was my pleasure to be part of your beautiful day. Wishing you and your husband a life time of happiness!
Asal did a lovely job for my wedding hair and makeup. I received compliment all the day long, and my photos turned out extremely nice. I asked her specifically for a natural look, and she spent four good hours working on my face and hair and at the end you couldn't tell if I was born so naturally perfect or if I had an amazing stylist.
I also had a trial session with her, and it was also very helpful to nail down what I want and what kind of look is suitable for me given my facial complexion and my dress.
She is very personable and pleasant. I had several phone conversation with her before the wedding and all the way long she was patient with me. She even kindly offered her time to come with me to help me pick up a foundation that suits my face, and she spent more than 2 hours helping me to shop for the right makeups.
I also got some wedding related advice from her: for example, her suggestion for sewing a comb on my veil was very helpful. She put me in touch with her friend who has a bridal dress studio and she fixed my comb. I loved how my veil stood nicely on my hair throughout the wedding.
Asal is extremely professional, pleasant to talk to, understanding and accurate in her work. I would recommend her not only for your wedding but also for your other occasional beauty event and photoshoot.
Thank so much for your review. It was my pleasure to be a part of your special day and I'm glad you enjoyed your experience.
Wishing you a life time of happiness.
Very talented and experienced makeup artist and hair stylist I really loved my hair and makeup
In one word, she is AMAZING! I truly loved her work. She did makeup for more than 6 persons and they all were satisfied with her work. She is very professional, patient, and dedicated to her work. She also did a fantastic makeup for me as a bride, and I received many compliments about my makeup and hairstyle. I truly appreciate her for making the wedding for me, my bride's maids and family so special and relax. I highly recommend her!!!
Dear Dornaz, thank you for the kind words. It was truly my pleasure to be a part of your special day and having the honour of working on your hair and makeup, along with your bridal party. Best wishes.
I am not sure if words can truly express how great I think Asal is. She exceeded my expectations in every way and went far and beyond imaginable. From our first meeting, I felt so comfortable with her and I just knew she would be amazing! I decided to book her to stay with me until after the ceremony and pictures, and I have to say it was the best decision I had made. On the day of my wedding she showed up early smiling with excitement! Her bubbly personality and caring nature instantly eased my nerves. She did my makeup absolutely beautiful and flawless.She had my back like no other, making sure everything was right. She helped with my dress, fixed a last minute problem with my dupatta , and ensured me over and over that everything was great. She was like a guardian angel watching over me. I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better than what she did. She is absolutely wonderful and has an amazing talent for what she does! She is a godsend to every bride! I would highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Asal!!
Thank you for your kind and moving words. Your gratification is the best compensation for me. I'm so glad I could execute your Indian Bride vision for your hair and makeup.
I was so honoured to be a part of your special day and wish you and your husband a lifetime filled with love and happiness.
Asal is such a sweetheart. Very professional, caring, dedicated, talented and patient. Both of my close friends/ stylist were out of town on my wedding day and I was so nervous about finding a new hair stylist that I could trust with my hair. I found out about her service 2 weeks before my wedding date when I was disappointed with my previous trial with a different vendor. I contacted her and she was willing to take me for a trial within few days and exactly a week before my wedding day. I was so satisfied with her work that I signed the contract with her right away not to mention that her price is very reasonable. She arrived to my hotel room on-time. She did an amazing job on me, my cousin and aunt, and we all were so happy as we left the hotel to the venue. The wedding day was extremely windy and the ceremony took place outside as we had planned; luckily my side up do stayed the same way as she has styled in that morning. I received so many compliments about my hair on my wedding day and afterwards. I am very happy to have met Asal. She is truly an amazing person and stylist.
I searched far and wide for the perfect hair and makeup artist to help take care of me, my mother and mother in law and my bridesmaids for my wedding. Asal and her team were spectacular. Prior to the wedding, we had a trial for hair and makeup, and after changing my mind a month later about how I wanted my hair to be styled, Asal was more than accommodating in setting up another trial for hair. She kept telling me she just wants me not to worry and to be happy and feel beautiful - and that's exactly how I felt! On the day of the wedding Asal and her team came to our venue in Charlottesville, even though it was a hike for them, bright and early, arrived on time and ready to go! I had 10 people total who needed hair and makeup done and Asal and her team were extremely efficient, professional, and just a pleasure to work with. They make everyone feel so beautiful and comfortable, catered to individual tastes and preferences, and were happy to make changes when a bridesmaid asked. We all felt beautiful the entire day and the makeup lasted until I took it off at the end of the night - even through all of the happy tears! Asal was always easy to get in touch with, and just a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for all your hair and makeup needs - you would be silly not to book her for your next event!
Thank you for your wonderful and thoughtful review. I had such a great time spending the day with you and your super fun bridal party. You are so beautiful that you made my job so much easier.
Wishing you and your husband all the best on your journey through life together.
