Thanks for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day!
Vy did a great job with my hair and make-up for my wedding. I had done a trial with her a few months before the wedding, which I loved, but I decided the look was too dramatic (for someone who normally does not wear any make-up). Vy took my input to heart on the wedding day with toning the look down, but still accentuating my features so that they would photograph well. The look held up all evening and I was really sad when it was time to let my hair down and take my make up off because I loved it all so much! I would definitely recommend Vy to anyone.

I used Vy and her team for my wedding hair and makeup and she did an amazing job!! Two of my girlfriends had used her services in the past so I went with her off of a referral and I have to say - I could not have been happier. I felt absolutely beautiful, I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup and the pictures turned out great. She listened to what I wanted and worked with me to give me the look I was going for. I wasn't 100% sure how I wanted my hair to look and on the morning of the wedding she was flexible, took my vision and made it reality! I also found her prices competitive with the industry. I would recommend Vy and her team to anyone!! Thank you Vy!

I just got married in January 2013 and could not be happier with how my bridesmaids, mom, and I looked on my wedding day! Prior to my wedding, Vy scheduled a trial for my makeup and hair. I was thrilled with the makeup, but I was unsure if the style for my hair was exactly what I wanted. I immediately emailed Vy and described to her the new hairstyle that I had in mind. I emailed her a picture and she said no problem!
Vy was accommodating, flexible, easy to contact and communicate with, and always had a smile on her face. On the day of my wedding, she kept me calm and truly made me look amazing. I am so appreciative and truly pleased with Vy and her Exquisite Faces team!

I used Vy after seeing her work at my friend's wedding. I live in Los Angeles, but was planning a wedding up in Livermore, CA. I was getting really stressed about finding someone to do my makeup. Several people I contacted, never contacted me back, or were very expensive. Exquisite faces is very reasonably priced and Vy does an amazing job. Any time I would email, I would hear back from her by the next day at latest. At first, I was going to do my own makeup, but decided I did not want to stress about anything the day of, and I am so glad I made that decision. Besides my dress, I get the most comments on how beautiful my make up was. I highly recommend having a trial with her, just to put your mind at ease, but if you can't or don't want to, I would not worry, because she has an amazing eye for makeup and will do an amazing job.

Vy and her team were amazing getting me and my 3 bridesmaids ready for my wedding a couple months ago. My trial was amazing and Vy asked several times along the way if I liked how it was turning out to make sure I was completely happy with the result.
The day of the wedding, Vy and her team showed up at my hotel room promptly with chairs for us to sit on and everything they needed to get us ready. The bridesmaids were all amazed with how beautiful they looked and how well the makeup and hairstyles stayed all night. Vy was able to replicate the gorgeous job she had done for my trial and make the small changes that I asked for, and my hair and makeup were perfect as well.
I love all my pictures, and am so thankful that I used Exquisite faces.

I was extremely pleased with my hair and makeup. Vy who is the usual person who does the hair and makeup was out on maternity leave. She was present at my trial run and had her mother Amy and the gal who was training to do makeup do my trial run and my wedding for a very reasonable price. The makeup lasted all day. Love the airbrush! The lady doing makeup was very responsive to feedback (for instance, a little less brow coloring... too much for my taste, but that was easily fixed). My hair was perfect and she did it timely and it lasted all day. I have fine, thin hair and she was able to get exactly what I wanted from just a picture and didn't fuss with the fact I have little hair to work with. My bridesmaids had thicker hair and she was able to do them easily as well and they both loved their hair. My matron of honor even had hair clips for extra hair and she was able to incorporate those into her hairstyle without difficulty.
The best part was that they came to my house. So convenient!
Overall, I was very pleased and thankful I found Exquisite Faces.

Vy and her team did my hair and makeup as well as my bridal party of 5 for my November 2011 wedding. Everyone turned out beautiful for my wedding and we all got great compliments. It ended up raining on my wedding and the makeup and hair still held up all day.
My mom who never wears makeup was really happy with her looks as it was really natural and she even agreed to do the fake lashes.
Julie · Married on 09/03/2011
Vy and her team did an amazing job for my bridesmaids and me. They did hair and makeup for all of us, and we were all thrilled with the results. In particular, the makeup looked beautiful while still looking really natural and feeling light. Also, we had no problems throughout the evening -- the makeup and hair held up throughout the whole wedding.
Throughout the process, Vy was really responsive and easy to work with, and her team also worked really efficiently the day-of. I would highly recommend her to other brides out there.

I booked Vy with Exquisite Faces for my August 13, 2011 wedding. I found Vy by searching online and found that she had some of the best prices and I loved that she did both hair and makeup. I did my trial with Vy to get my hair and makeup done for our engagement pictures. She was very great in picking a hair style and makeup that would look best on me. I liked her so much that I ended up booking her for our second engagement photo session and for our wedding! I had 5 bridesmaids, 2 Moms and a flower girl for our wedding. Vy was very accommodating as one of my bridesmaids was unable to come at the last minute. On the day of the wedding, Vy and her team arrived right on time and were very easy to talk to. They made getting ready for my big day very special and fun! All of the girls loved the way their hair and makeup ended up looking. I highly recommend Vy with Exquisite Faces.
Nina · Married on 07/30/2011
Vy and her team did a fabulous job! She worked with me to give me just the look I wanted--beautiful but still natural and not overdone. She was knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. Her team was very punctual and planned their time well to ensure we were ready on time. Their prices were very fair and airbrushing was just a flat fee more for everyone, not a per person extra. Overall, they were incredible to work with and I would highly recommend them.
Lisa · Married on 06/25/2011
Vy was great to work with! Her prices are fair (definitely one of the most competitive in the bay area) and my wedding day makeup and hair was even more perfect than the trial version. She was able to achieve the more natural look but still had me look and feel special. My hair and makeup also stayed put through the whole wedding with jumping pictures and LOTS of dancing. She was on-time, efficient, and professional. But at the same time, she was a joy to chat with, never leaving you feel bored. She was also really fast with email correspondence. I highly recommend booking her for your big day.
Andrea · Married on 05/27/2011
Vy was amazing! She did my makeup for my wedding. I never like when people do my makeup so i was very nervous to have my makeup done by someone that i didnt even know. On your wedding you want to look and feel amazing and i did-thanks to her. I can honestly say that i LOVED how it came out. I did the airbrush and didnt have to touch up all night! I would definitly recommend Vy! Very professional and awesome at what she does :)

If you're looking for hair and makeup artist for a special occasion, especially your wedding day, Vy is the person to look for! Vy recently did my hair and makeup for my wedding on October 30th, 2010. All I can say is that she was AMAZING!! She came with an assistant that worked alongside her and they really planned it out. I hair lasted all day and so did my make up. I have fairly oily skin which on a normal day, would typically would leave a very "shiny" face later on during the day. But her airbrush technique worked like a CHARM!!! and I was shine-free for my whole wedding day. The whole time, she was calm and professional, and she makes sure that the bride does not stress about anything, which believe me, is super important on your big day.
Brenda · Married on 10/23/2010
I found Vy through Yelp reviews and she was every bit as good as everyone said she was. I was so impressed with the trial that I didn't bother meeting with anyone else. Vy is extremely professional but personable too which made me feel like she really cared about making me look the best on my wedding day.
I booked Vy for my wedding back in October 2010 and she came with lots of assistants who were prepared to do hair and make up for my bridal party. The hair and make up came out amazing and I love the fact that she uses air brushing. Everyone's hair and make up held up despite the rain on my wedding day and we all had lots of compliments.
I am highly recommending Vy to anyone looking for a hair/make up artist. She is every bit as great as everyone has commented/reviewed on here and other review sites!
Kristin · Married on 10/09/2010
I can't thank Vy enough for the wonderful services she provided for me and my bridesmaid on our wedding day. Vy was so kind as to schedule two pre-wedding consultative appointments with me as I changed my mind about hairstyle several weeks before the wedding. She was gracious enough to shuffle around her busy schedule to make time for me.
On our wedding day, she brought 3 assistants with her to do hair and makeup for myself and all 6 of my bridesmaids. Everybody was very pleased with the services provided which included airbrushing of makeup for several of the girls. They arrived promptly at our hotel room when they were scheduled to be there and were very patient with those who were a little more "picky" with their hairstyle. The makeup and hair style lasted throughout the evening and I received lots of compliments from guests.
I highly recommend Vy for wedding hair and makeup services. She was fabulous.
Megan · Married on 09/11/2010
Vy did such a wonderful job on our hair and makeup for my wedding. I had 6 bridesmaids who were getting hair and makeup done as well and Vy brought 2 assistants to make sure everyone was done in time for pictures. They were finished before our deadline! My hair and makeup lasted the entire night and I was very happy with the results. Vy was professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend using her for you wedding hair and makeup!
ashley · Married on 08/27/2010
I used Vy for my wedding on 8/27/2010. She did amazing work. She did my make-up and all of my bridesmaids and mother of the bride and mother of the groom. She was on time and ready to go. She did everyone's make-up with time to spare. She did everything that I wanted and more. She is an amazing make-up artist. I would use her again and again. If I ever have an event again that I need my make-up done I will so use her again.
Thank you Vy so much for the amazing work that you did.
Ashley · Married on 07/25/2010
I used Vy for my wedding in Pleasanton last month. She is absolutely amazing, the best makeup artist I could have asked for. I met with her a few months before the wedding for a trial and was impressed with her friendly and professional personality and was blown away by her amazing work.
She arrived on my wedding day completely prepared and was extremely accommodating to everyone. Both my mom and my mother in law were extremely happy with her work and couldnt stop talking about how talented Vy is.
Words cannot express how amazing I felt on my wedding day and Vy is to thank for that. Everyone kept commenting on my lashes and flawless face. Airbrushing is amazing and my 5 bridesmaids loved the lashes so much they all ended up getting some put on!
Vy's makeup artistry exceeded my expectations and I'm extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her. I happily recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Kathy · Married on 07/03/2010
Vy and her team of assistants did my makeup and hair for my wedding this past summer, as well as my bridesmaids and mom. Let me just say, Vy is AMAZING! Some highlights:
- Vy and her team were incredibly professional and prepared. They came on time, took great care of my large group, and finished with plenty of time to spare.
-She is so warm and friendly! I can't stress how important it is to comfortable and stress-free on your wedding day, and Vy made sure to make me feel completely taken care of.
-She did an amazing job with my hair and makeup. She uses this amazing airbrush makeup that makes your skin look FLAWLESS, and my makeup looked natural and gorgeous. My hair was exactly how I wanted it to be, and she was so open to suggestions and changes. I got so may compliments on how I looked that day . My makeup stayed put until the very end of the night, and I was so happy with how the pictures turned out.
Overall, I'm so happy I chose to work with Vy - her prices are so affordable for the quality that you get with her. Thank you Vy! :)

Vy and her mother are incredibly talented and an absolute joy to work with!!!! I had my hair/makeup trial done in January and everything was duplicated perfectly on the day of my June wedding, I LOVED it! Most of my bridesmaids didn't have a clue how they wanted their hair done on the big day but it was no big deal because Vy's mother was able to work with each girls hair type and length. They all loved the final result and looked amazing!!! Vy listens to any and all requests and her prices are phenomenal, plus she does gorgeous airbrush makeup that makes you look flawless! If you need hair or makeup done for any special occasion, book Vy ASAP!!! :-)
Katie · Married on 05/29/2010
I found her through http://Yelp.com when looking for a hair/makeup artist for my wedding.
I went in for my trial & explained what I wanted & she did it perfectly. The airbrush makeup makes EVERYONE look fantastic & my eyes looked so amazing. Plus, you get free fake eyelashes! Which is awesome if you ever want to use them again, and they look so amazing.
When my wedding day came she was right on time & prepared. I had changed a few minor details & she was super nice about all of it. My g.f.'s were so amazed at how wonderful I looked, they were all in awe! My hair and makeup were the most important thing for me, especially with pictures, and Vy nailed it.
Thank you so so much for an amazing experience, great customer service, and a FANTASTIC price!
Michelle · Married on 05/01/2010
Vy did a lovely job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. I got a lot of compliments on my makeup that day, it looked very natural. Plus nobody could notice that my eyelashes were fake. I highly recommend the airbrush makeup, it is so light, I could hardly tell it was there. The makeup lasted all day, outdoors in the sun, until I had to wash it off at night. My hair managed to stay up the whole day too, the curls were all still curly and Vy was able to secure my crown so that it’ll stay up all day too. Thanks a bunch Vy for making me look beautiful on my wedding day!
Jennifer · Married on 04/17/2010
I used Vy as my makeup artist and my hair stylist on my wedding day.
During the trial, she took her time and explained to me what she was going to do. She took before and after pictures and e-mailed them to me. I booked her right away.
On my wedding day, Vy came early and was a pleasure to work with. She created the same hairstyle and makeup that she had done during the trial.
Everyone loved my hair and makeup. Thanks Vy!
Katie · Married on 03/20/2010
Vy was such a good find.
Vy did my makeup for my wedding. She was very professional and such a doll. She came on time, early even, and was ready to work.
My makeup stayed on all day and night. I opted for the airbrush makeup and was glad I did. I got so many compliments that night.
I highly recommend Vy.
Kim · Married on 08/01/2009
Exquisite faces is made of a mother-daughter team. Vy (the daughter) does makeup and her mom does hair. They did my hair and makeup on my wedding day, and also my 5 bridesmaids, mom, and grandma's.
1) They're both so sweet. Having my makeup done was like hanging out with a friend-- Vy is so friendly and sweet. She even showed me her own wedding photos.
2) During the trial, they both work with the ideas that you have, but they also know their stuff-- ie she knows how dark to make the makeup for wedding photos and how to work with Asian eyes. She let me try on different length fake lashes before deciding what I actually wanted to use.
2) She does airbrush makeup (highly recommend!). It's flawless
3) VERY reasonable priced. Their prices are great not just for the bride, but also the bridesmaids hair and makeup.
4) On my wedding day, Vy and her mom were great. They were calm, relaxed, and all us gals had a great time getting ready together. They were able to replicate exactly what they had done 3 months before at the trial, and included a few of my suggestions/changes. They stayed with us until our pictures, doing last-minute touch-ups. All the girls were beautiful, they did a great job!
Can't recommend them enough, thanks Exquisite Faces!
