  • I booked Akiyo for my wedding hair and makeup after searching for an artist who could work well with Asian hair and facial features. I'm not a huge hair and makeup person so it was so great to be able to find an artist who made me feel special, without being overly done. After several not-so-great trials with many other artists, I was very happy with Akiyo. Even before my trial, we had extensive communication about my normal hair and makeup preferences and she made sure to incorporate my preferences in my final look. She was very careful about my look and our trial was several hours long because of her meticulousness and frequent adjustments to make sure that I was 100% happy and comfortable with my look. She was also extremely easy to work with; we chatted a lot about her hobbies (including surfing) and she was not judgmental at all about my beauty preferences. Unfortunately because of the pandemic, my wedding has now been cancelled. Akiyo has also been very accommodating and e... Read more

  • She is amazing and easy to work with. She is detail oriented and will spend the time to make you feel like a princess. I did not feel rushed throughout my trial and the day of the wedding. She made my mom and my maid of honor look their best! I highly recommend her for your wedding day!

  • Akiyo is an amazing hair and makeup artist! She did my hair and makeup for my wedding and I could not have been any happier. She was extremely flexible, accommodating and easy to get along with. She did my hair and makeup exactly how I wanted. She went back and fixed and made sure I felt comfortable with everything she was doing. Everyone still compliments me on how cool my hair was, even my husband loved it. Thank you Akiyo for helping me have amazing memories and making me feel and look spectacular on my wedding day!!

  • I'm lucky to have booked Akiyo less than two months before my wedding. With Asian features, I've never been able to apply makeup well on myself (eyeliner smudges between my creases and transfers below my eyes). I didn't trust other artists for fear that they'd make me look like a clown. During the trial, Akiyo understood that I wanted a natural look. She gave me several updos before I landed on a style. After seeing her work, I immediately knew that I wanted to book her. On the wedding day, she came 15 minutes early (I think it was 5:45 AM??). She made me look even better than the trial. I didn't even have to reapply lip color or blot my face. My husband was smitten, and the compliments didn't stop all day. The only issue I had was that one false eyelash got a little loose in the corner (I suspect it was due to my hooded eyelid), but I pushed it back onto my eye and managed fine in my 9-hour day. My hair is slippery and heavy, but my updo didn't budge. Akiyo also turned my matron... Read more

  • I was in the process of looking for a hair & makeup artist for my wedding day and am so grateful that I came across Akiyo. Not only is she a talented and amazing makeup artist, she's also super sweet and fun to work it. She made the whole process easy for me and was very punctual and professional throughout the entire time. I booked her for both a makeup trial and wedding day hair & makeup and I'm so glad I did. Akiyo was very responsive and flexible when I was scheduling for my makeup trial appointment and was even willing to travel all the way to Brooklyn for me. A lot of other makeup artists that my friends have used for their big day rushed through the makeup trial part, But not Akiyo. She took her time in perfecting my makeup and hair to how I wanted it as if it was my actual wedding day and made sure I liked the end result. Akiyo went above and beyond just for my makeup trial, so I knew what to expect for my big day. Akiyo exceeded my expectations on the day of my wedding.... Read more

  • She’s an amazing hair & makeup artist. I'm glad I was able to find her for my wedding. I showed her a few hairstyle options that I like and she nailed it. For my makeup, she asked questions at my trial to make sure she understood what styles I'd be interested in and also gave me advice on what we should consider if the wedding would be taking place outside and if the weather would be good or bad. I love how detailed she is as well. I'd suggest her if you are looking for a fantastic hair stylist. You won't regret it!
