    Hiring Sonja for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made! She did airbrush makeup and hair for me, my 5 bridesmaids, and my mother, while getting us on our way in time- and was even willing to meet us at our hotel at 7am to start! She was very personable, friendly, professional, flexible and patient. She has a very laid back personality which kept me calm the whole morning! Sonja managed to make me look even better than the pictures I had shown her, and I am VERY picky and particular. During the trial run if I wanted something to be tweaked I didn't feel bad asking, because it is obvious that she just wants to make sure you are happy and getting what you want. I highly recommend her to any bride who feels lost looking for a hair and make up artist. She is bound to make you look more beautiful than you could have imagined on your big day! Xoxo

    Sonja was amazing. She did my makeup exactly how I wanted it. I wanted to look natural the day of my wedding and she made me look beautiful and natural at the same time. She was lovely to work with. I look forward to working with her in the future again.

    Sonja was such a blast to work with. I loved getting to know her during my make-up trial, and we had so much in common. I was a bundle of nerves the morning of my wedding, and talking to her and having her do my make-up made me feel so relaxed. She is so incredibly talented; she only did my make-up, but seeing other clients whose hair she worked on proves that she is truly an artist in every sense of the word. She was very quick to respond, flexible with scheduling, and very versatile in her abilities. I am a natural red head with very pale skin, and I was nervous that professional make-up would overwhelm my features and make me look too overdone. She matched my natural skin tone perfectly, made my eyes pop with a natural look, and (most importantly) made sure that everything was set for the very long (hot, sweaty, tear-filled) day! She was worth every penny. I looked fresh all day, and the pictures turned out beautifully. Thank you, Sonja!

    Sonja was perfect to work with! I got very fast response from her every time I needed to talk. She listened to what I wanted and I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. Working with her made my special day stress free knowing that my wedding party and I would look and feel beautiful! Thank you again for all of your work!

    I have Sonja booked for my wedding this April 2015 but I have done a trial run for my wedding hair and make up for my fiancés military ball that was in December 2014. I could not have been more pleased and impressed! She made me feel like a princess! I have never tried air brush make up/ didn't know if it would really be water/ sweat proof.. but it WAS!!! Sonja is such a pleasure to work with and very professional. I am so excited to see her and work with her again on my wedding day :)

    I LOOOOOOOVE Sonja! I'm not the kind of woman who wears much make up. So I needed someone who could understand that but still make me look amazing without feeling overwhelmed on my wedding day. Sonja understood what I wanted and delivered beautiful and flawless look. She is so easy to talk to that on our first meeting (the trial run) we talked like old girlfriends, which made me feel comfortable. I was rather skeptical at first because I have a darker skin tone and oily skin. But once I finally seen the look she created for me I knew that my husband would melt when he saw me walking down the aisle. She worked diligently the day of my wedding to do the make up of not only myself but all of my bridesmaids and my mother. Not to mention she was very reasonable too. If I had to do it all over again, Sonja would be my first and only choice, hands down!!!

    Sonja was the makeup artist for my wedding party. She was AMAZING from start to finish. The moment we made contact she was very professional! The day of my wedding she arrived right on time and was so personable and genuine. I felt like a bride after she did my makeup. I would recommend her to anyone needing wedding makeup done. I couldn't be happier with the way my makeup and bridesmaids makeup turned out! Thank you so so much Sonja!!!

    Sonja did an amazing job on my and my bridal party's wedding day makeup. She did exactly what each of us asked for and the airbrush turned out really wonderfully. I couldn't believe how beautiful everyone looked in the pictures! After my trial run I asked if she could tone it down to be more natural and she did it perfectly on the day-of. Sonja is also really good at reading the situation between the many family and friends present and diffusing any tension to make sure that the bride is comfortable and relaxed. She is wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone!

    I found Sonja through The Knot and did not quite know what to expect. I went to her studio for my trial run for hair and makeup and instantly we clicked! She looked at the pictures of my ideas for hair and makeup and then created exactly what I wanted. She listened to my thoughts and suggestions, instead of going solely on her professional opinion. On my wedding day, Sonja did my hair and makeup, along with my 6 bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law...all in about 5 and a half hours! Although this task seemed daunting to me, Sonja never once showed that it was. With 6 bridesmaids, I was nervous that at least one or two of them would not like their hair; however, that was not the case! All 6 were amazed that she created a flattering hairstyle for each (and quickly). She ensured that she had plenty of time for my hair and makeup and truly made me feel special. Not only was my hair perfect, but the airbrush makeup looked absolutely amazing, especially in our professional photographs.

    If I had to describe Sonja in 3 words, I would say talented, trustworthy, and personable, and I could not thank her enough for making my day more special than I ever could have imagined! -Jamie

    I realize that giving 5 out of 5 stars usually makes a person pause and wonder if the review is real. I am a real bride who hired Sonja to do hair and makeup for my July 4th wedding, and there is not one thing looking back that I can say negatively about her business. I set out looking for an airbrush makeup artist in the Nashville area, and with much praise and high recommendation, I found Sonja Sevin. She was great to work with, extremely knowledgeable about the "day of" expectations and process, easy to communicate, and most of all a fun/energetic personality which was priceless when it came to keeping me calm and happy on my big day. My favorite aspect of using the airbrush makeup, was it truly did not smudge/run/or dull throughout the entire day (including when we exchanged our own vowels and I could not stop crying haha!). My bridesmaids can also attest to this as they all used Sonja for hair and makeup as well. We all looked picture perfect and felt like our most beautiful selves that night, and I have Sonja to thank.

    Sonja does an amazing job, and really makes you feel welcomed in her home. You see I got married on memorial day and many salons and places were closed. It made my day when I got the email saying she could do my hair and make-up that day! She made me feel like the most beautiful bride, and the air brush make-up she uses is amazing and really does last all day, even in the hot sun and humidity. I get comments all the time when people see pics of my wedding day, about how good my hair and make-up looked.

    Sonja came to my home to prepare us for my daughter Emma's wedding. The airbrush makeup was so great. Emma and her bridesmaids looked amazing. Sonja was very responsive to the preferences of the people she was working with and their comfort with the makeup she was applying. She worked with the wedding party, the mother of the bride(me) and some other family members. I can safely say I have never felt so beautiful. Sonja was Los easy to work with and made us all feel so comfortable!

    After searching the web for days, I came across Sonja's site and knew after seeing 3 pictures of her work that she was the one for me! Her style his modern, glam, romantic, and sexy all in one...perfect for a bride. She came to my house for the trial and to the hotel I stayed at before the wedding. She is excellent with airbrush make up, hair extensions, eyelashes, etc. Her prices were fair and affordable. She is very personable and professional, and she helped me look gorgeous for my big day. I am a bridesmaid in October and am definitely going to call her again!

    Sonja is wonderful! She has a great personality and loves her work! She was very prompt and professional and worth every penny to make me beautiful for my special day! She uses airbrush makeup, which stayed on all day and looked fantastic. She even agreed to do my sister's makeup and nieces' hair at the last minute and made us all look beautiful! She was very accommodating and I would definitely hire her again!

    And to think I was going to do my makeup myself!! Sonja travelled from Nashville, TN to Savannah, GA to do our wedding hair and makeup. She is fabulous!! I had a black eye from and eye surgery (that I had 1 week before the wedding) and you could not tell one bit...I could not believe it....I also have super sensitive eyes and other makeup artists didn't take the care that she did. She did amazing work and I feel so fortunate that we crossed paths and she was available. At age 37, she made me feel so young and pretty!

    Sonja was absolutely amazing!! I truely felt like I looked like a queen on my wedding day! She was such a wonderful person to work with! The makeup truely lasted the whole night and it looked amazing in all the pictures! I am so glad that I decided to use a professional makeup artist for my wedding day and not attempt to do my own makeup, even thought I am very comfortable doing my makeup on an everyday basis. I was just able to relax and be pampered!
