I can not give enough praise to Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry. They were so accommodating with all of my questions and needs. I had a large group of women getting services and they timed our morning out perfectly. They listened to myself and all of my girls needs.They made myself and my whole bridal party look like queens. I went for my trial in October and my wedding was in February. I was nervous that my hair and makeup wouldn't look like my trail, but it turned our exactly how I wanted it. They are an amazing group of women and I would recommend them to anyone! Everyone was so happy with their looks and we received multiple compliments throughout the day. Tamara and her team know exactly what they are doing!! :)Sent on 04/27/2018

Perfect Hair and Makeup for the perfect day!
I cannot say enough good things about Tamara and her team. We had a large bridal party and I was worried about not having enough time for all 12 of us to get hair and makeup done before the ceremony while still keeping the quality of the services high. My expectations were completely blown away. I consider myself to be pretty picky when it comes to hair and makeup and this was one of my biggest stresses of the day. Tamara was flexible and allowed me to make suggestions/corrections to things I wanted differently- without batting an eye. I have never felt more beautiful, both my hair and makeup, along with all of my bridesmaids, looked absolutely perfect, and the rest of the day followed.Sent on 06/12/2019

Look no further!
Tamara Hair and Makeup Artistry is the absolute BEST—there is not much more I can say to sum it all up! I hired Tamara and team for our February 2019 wedding and could not be happier with this decision. From our initial conversation and their responsiveness, to my wedding trial, to our wedding day, I knew I made the perfect decision!Sent on 06/25/2019
I had 15 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls, in addition to myself, that needed hair/makeup services on the day of our wedding. We had two makeup artists (Tamara and Cristina) and two hair stylists (Jenine and Sabrina) and they completed all the services in a timely fashion and allowed enough time for “touch ups” before the ceremony began. I can’t say enough good things about all 4 artists. They were articulate, efficient, patient, communicative, fun, energetic, and professional—everything you are looking for in someone handling your beauty services on one of the most important days of your life!
I am forever grateful that I chose Tamara and team to be a special part of our wedding day and will continue recommending this team to our family and friends looking for the perfect hair and makeup artists for any event! Thank you ALL for all of your hard work and for making our wedding day a dream come true!

Amazing and Stunning!
I could not have been more pleased with the services received by Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry. I was previously in a wedding that used Tamara and her team for the bridal party, and did not even question hiring them for my day. They not only accommodated an evening trial for me, but even accommodated a trial session for my mom. Come the wedding day, they were prompt, enthusiastic, and went with the flow of unexpected wedding day schedule changes. I could not have felt more beautiful on my wedding day, and I cannot rave enough about Jolisa and Jenine's work on not only myself, but also my mom and bridesmaids. We were ALL incredibly happy.Sent on 01/13/2019

Great Hair/Makeup Vendor!
Wanted to say thank you to Tamara and her team for making me and my bridesmaids feel beautiful on our wedding day. Tamara’s group is very organaized, professional, and just plain good at what they do. I’m glad I was able to book them and work with a team that was so great!Sent on 11/03/2018

Best decision ever!
I could not be happier that I booked Tamara Makeup & Hair Artistry for our wedding in October. A coworker of mine recommended them and I am SO happy she did! As every bride, hair and makeup was incredibly important to me for my wedding day. I worried that I wouldn’t look like myself and that I would look too “made up.” This was not at all the case! I was absolutely blown away by the team at Tamara Makeup & Hair Artistry after my trial that I booked them on the spot. I shared my vision with Jolisa and Sabrina during my trial and they went with it and made me feel like a movie star during the process! They are so fun and easy to talk to that I could hardly wait until the wedding day; I knew my bridesmaids would love them too. After leaving my trial, I sent pictures to my mother-in-law who was on the fence about getting her hair and makeup done. After sending her the pictures, she asked me to add her to the list for wedding day hair and makeup! Tamara’s team was there every step of the way to answer any questions and calm all of my bride nerves leading up to the big day! Jolisa and Sabrina were very professional and arrived bright and early on the wedding day and just made the morning so much fun. My bridesmaids (and mom/mother-in-law) still talk about how much they loved their hair and makeup from the wedding; they couldn’t believe that it lasted all day and night (through sweat, a drizzle, and A LOT of dancing)! Jolisa made both moms feel absolutely beautiful; they both got lashes and they were SO happy they did! Jolisa and Sabrina truly made all of my wedding day hair and makeup dreams come true. From application all the way until the last dance of the night, my hair and makeup looked flawless. I felt beautiful and most importantly, I still felt like myself. I will recommend Tamara Makeup & Hair Artistry to all of my friends! THANK YOU SO MUCH!Sent on 01/16/2019

For the first time ever, I felt like the most beautiful girl in the room!
I knew hair and makeup was going to be one of the most important aspects of making me feel truly beautiful on my wedding day, so it was an incredibly overwhelming task to find the right vendor. As soon as I saw Tamara Makeup & Hair Artistry's website, I knew they were the right call. I am Egyptian-American and was instantly impressed by the number of ethnic weddings they had done, but also how professional and gorgeous all of the looks in the gallery were.Sent on 10/18/2018
Tamara was incredibly responsive, and I was impressed that she asked for photos of my wedding vision and style to ensure they were the right match for me. She took the time to hear all of my wants and concerns and suggested Jody and Nina based on the look I wanted.
The trial was an incredible experience. The studio is adorable, clean, and very professional. Jody and Nina were so welcoming and warm, and I felt like they truly listened to me. I was blown away at Jody's speed and skill. My initial hairstyle idea didn't look like I had envisioned, so Jody immediately rearranged some things and I had a totally different look that I fell absolutely in love with! Nina's makeup skills are insane, and I felt like a movie star when I looked in the mirror!
The day of the wedding went so smoothly. Jody and Nina were right on time, professional and quick, so kind, and every single woman in my wedding party was ECSTATIC with their finished look. Two of my bridesmaids even said they were happier with how they looked at my wedding than they were with their own wedding looks! My hair and makeup lasted the entire 12+ hour day, despite sweating, wind, etc., and the compliments to all of us were endless. Jody used the hair piece I had purchased in the most gorgeous way, and I can't stop looking at photos. I'm already thinking of an excuse to let them style me again!
Thank you, Jody and Nina, for making me feel like the most beautiful girl in the room for the first time in my life! Trust me, you will only regret NOT choosing Tamara Makeup & Hair for your wedding day because there is no one better.

Darbie & Tiffany!
I booked Tamara Hair & Makeup Artistry after my best friend used them in her wedding! They are the clear choice when it comes to wedding makeup & hair in Chicagoland, hands down. Not only are they extremely talented and knowledgable artists they are great people. They make you feel extremely comfortable and gorgeous on your big day! I loved them so much, I hired them for my rehearsal dinner as well!Sent on 11/13/2018
I had Darbie & Tiffany as my artists... Darbie is not only talented but she's so sweet and funny, I felt like I've known her for years! Tiffany really listened to what I wanted for my hair. I have extremely curly hair and I wanted it to look as natural as possible for my big day. She nailed it! They both made me feel the like the best version of me!

You will never look this good again
I recall saying several times "remember this face because I will never look this good again in my life." Tamara's team was beyond professional and they are honestly miracle workers. I chose them because of their reviews and I was able to book the last team available for my day. (shout out to Jenine on hair and Noemi on makeup) When I had my trial I felt like I was playing dress up with 2 of my best friends. They were so kind and genuine and really just wanted to help me achieve the look I wanted with the help of their expertise. When I first saw myself I immediately looked away because I could not believe it was me (in a good way). I made very minor changes and they were very accommodating. The day of, they arrived to my house as scheduled, everything ran so smoothly and we were able to make it out the door at the time we planned. I honestly eidh they could do my hair and makeup every single day.Sent on 01/14/2019

Candelaria · Married on 08/18/2018
When I was researching makeup artists and hair stylists for my wedding, I had a few things that were very important to me; I needed a team with the ability to take care of 15 girls, I wanted things to run on time, I did not want to wake up at 4:00 in the morning, and I wanted all of us to look absolutely beautiful in photos and in person. I was lucky have known one of the artists on the team (Jenine) for a very long time and after pricing things out and booking some trials with different artists I decided to hire Tamara’s Team (Tamara, Jenine, Jody, & Julia).Sent on 12/30/2018
The level of service I received before the wedding day was phenomenal. Tamara or Jenine answered all of my questions, and I had a lot, in a timely fashion and really treated me like a friend more than a client. Booking the trial was easy and I really felt that both Jenine, my hairstylist, and Tamara, my makeup artist, really listened to what I wanted and were responsive to my requests. They gave me awesome tips and tricks to prepare my hair and skin for the wedding from that day forward. Tamara also shared links for me to purchase some awesome lashes that really tied my glamourous look together.
Fast forward to the big day, they were AMAZING! The whole morning was a little bit of a blur, but I was totally at ease in part because the amazing team I hired. All the artists arrived on time, and as the girls were passing through from makeup to hair to getting dressed, I was continuously impressed. Even the pickiest girl was a happy client. We were done on time, and when I looked in the mirror I was more than happy with the results; I felt absolutely beautiful and looked exactly like I wanted to look on such a special day.
These girls were amazing all around and would totally recommend them to anyone looking for the best!

We LOVED Cristina and Jenine from Tamara Makeup & Hair!!! I had 12 total women including myself get both hair and makeup services and everyone was SO happy with their looks. Cristina (makeup), Jenine (hair), and their assistants were all so sweet and easy to work with. I would absolutely recommend choosing these ladies if you're looking for hair and makeup services for your wedding!Sent on 07/27/2018

Cristina and Lindsey were absolutely amazing. They were timely, efficient, and made myself, my bridesmaids, and mother look beautiful on the day of my wedding. Both ladies were so easy to work with, offered suggestions, and were able to replicate any hair or makeup picture a bridesmaid gave them. Working with Tamara and the rest of her group was so easy that it made what could be a stressful part of the day such an enjoyable experience. We had a bride, 9 bridesmaids, and a mother of the bride who needed hair and makeup and Cristina and Lindsey managed it with great ease and were so fun to be around while we got ready for my wedding. Everyone's hair and makeup looked beautiful and lasted all day/night, even with 90 degree heat! Highly recommend! Thank you for making us feel beautiful on my wedding day!Sent on 08/17/2018

I cannot express how happy I am with my choice of Tamara Hair & Makeup. Sabrina did our hair, and Adriana did our makeup. In total they did 7 women's services (1 bridal, 5 bridesmaids, 1 MOB) and EVERYONE looked incredible. It was 90 degrees in Chicago on Memorial day weekend, and our makeup and hair held up the entire day, even being outside. They were a treat to work with and truly I have never felt more beautiful in my life! Sabrina even installed the bridesmaid's flower crowns for us. Cannot recommend enough!!!!Sent on 06/15/2018

We were so happy to have Darby do our makeup for my daughters wedding! She was professional from the trial to the morning of the wedding!

I worked with Jody and Cristina for my wedding and there are not enough words to describe how amazing of a job they did. My bridal party was extremely happy with their hair and make-up. As a bride, I wanted to feel stunning and yet still look like myself. Jody and Cristina truly capitalized on what I was picturing in my head of what I would look like on my wedding day. TMHA truly exceeded my expectations. Hands down will recommend Cristina, Jody, and the whole company to everyone!!Sent on 06/22/2018
