  • I used Alina for my hair and makeup for both my engagement photo shoot and my wedding day. My hair and makeup looked AMAZING!!! Alina was great to work with - she was always on time and worked very quickly. We did a trial run before the big day, which helped ease my nerves. She took lots of pics so we would know exactly what we liked. She and her team also did the makeup and hair for my mom, cousin, and bridal party. And they came to us! It helped so much to not have to worry about going somewhere else before the wedding. They made up a schedule and stuck to it. We didn't need to worry about making it to the venue on time. They made sure we all got done when we were supposed to, cleaned up, and had us out the door. They were very professional and got the job done. Our wedding day was in July and it was HOT! However, my hair and makeup never showed it. My makeup remained flawless all night long! My hair never moved. I was beyond pleased! There are so many things you are worr... Read more

  • I hired Alina and her makeup team to do hair and makeup for me, my 7 bridesmaids, my mother, and mother in law. She was incredibly easy to work with from the very beginning. She was so flexible/helpful every time I made little changes or had questions. From my trial all the way until the end of my wedding night, there was not one single thing I did not absolutely love about her work. She is smart, kind, and she KNOWS what she is doing. I completely trusted her! My updo was exactly what I wanted. She easily incorporated my hair clip, “something borrowed” pins, and showed my mom how to put in and take out my long veil. My hair is usually super frizzy, but there was not a single strand out of place all day! I also LOVE the makeup she used and ended up buying a lot of it for myself. It’s all really great quality and she matches the colors perfectly. I had never worn fake lashes before, and she put them on so easily and they stayed perfectly all day. She made me feel so comfortable, b... Read more

  • Alina did a beautiful job! She is very talented and easy to work with. We had a small wedding due to COVID, but she was willing to come to do just bridal hair and makeup. She was kind enough to style my mom's hair at the last minute as well. 100% recommend her!

  • Alina did hair and make up for my wedding (bride and three others). She was professional, prompt, and easy to work with. We were all happy with how our hair and make up looked and it showed really well in pictures.

  • Alina was amazing to work with. She did a wonderful job getting to know my sense of style and worked beautifully to capture the subtle, romantic, natural look I wanted for my wedding. The makeup was flawless and I felt totally myself. My hair is really thin, and Alina did a beautiful job giving it body and elegance. She incorporated my halo in a really creative way, adding her own professional advice and sense of flair. She was so personable and fun to work with. She was also really honest and would tell you if something might be a good idea or not. She, in turn, was also happy to receive feedback and make adjustments as necessary. I trusted her completely and everything turned out beautifully! I cannot thank her enough for helping to make our wedding so wonderful!

    Sara, thank you for your kind words, I appreciate the feedback, and happy you loved everything we did!

  • I used Alina for my wedding in December, and she was great! We had 10 people (myself, 6 bridesmaids, 3 moms) getting both hair and makeup done. Alina brought 2 helpers and efficiently ran through the whole group of us - getting us all done in about 3.5 hours. We started the hair and makeup routine around 8am, took pictures in the afternoon, the wedding started at 6pm, and after-party lasted until about 3am, and everyone’s hair and makeup stayed looking fresh the whole night! My girls kept commenting about how they loved both their hair and makeup - I was actually kind of sad when I had to take it off/out. I did a trial with Alina earlier in the year and sent her detailed comments back about what I wanted changed (shift from more natural to “glam”), and she easily adapted it for the wedding. Pricing is a little expensive (alas, everything in DC is), but you get what you pay for, and you definitely don’t want to skimp on hair and makeup for the most photographed day of your life....

  • After having a great trial run with Alina, I hired her for my wedding. She is efficient, quick, and does an amazing job of translating what you want into real life. I particularly enjoyed her commitment to ensuring I wouldn't look unnatural by asking detailed questions about my makeup usage. On the big day, I had two bridesmaids unexpectedly request to have their hair done and while it did put us into a slight time crunch, Alina and team worked magic to get it all done! I would highly recommend Alina if you are looking for quality hair and makeup!

  • I contacted Alina very last minute for a trial run a weekend my mom was in town before the wedding. Alina was extremely accommodating and after a few emails back and forth was able to coordinate a trial for both hair and makeup. Rita was our main point person and she did both my trial, as well as my hair and makeup day off. Rita was fantastic! I had a few pictures for my hair, but nothing for makeup and she was able to create a look that was both glamorous and me - it was important to me that I still looked like "me" and Rita did not disappoint. Alina coordinated a team that did full hair/makeup for my 3 bridesmaids and flower girl - everyone looked stunning and we were all finished on time. PLUS, they come to you, which I struggled to find in this area.

    Liz, I'm very happy everything went well, it was a pleasure communicating with you and thank you for sharing photos! I will let Rita know about the wonderful review you left!

  • For my wedding, Alina and her team did a beautiful job on the hair and makeup for myself, 6 bridesmaids, and my husband's mother and grandmother. They were on time and very accommodating. They did complicated updos quickly and efficiently and they looked stunning. The make up looked fabulous and they used multiple piece eyelashes which look and feel more natural. Alina worked with me in the weeks and months leading up to the wedding to give me recommendations on what hair extensions and hair accessories would work. She made me feel very comfortable and I'm beyond ecstatic with how everything turned out.

    Tara, thank you for your great review, my team was happy to work with you guys, myself included! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your very special day!

  • Alina was incredibly responsive and helpful with hair and makeup services for my wedding. She was flexible with the number of people getting hair and makeup done - even with a last minute change a couple weeks before the wedding! Zhanna was the stylist we worked with on my wedding day, and she was wonderful! She arrived early and stayed a little late to make sure everyone had what they needed. Would definitely recommend, and would absolutely work with Alina and her team again!

    Rachel, I'm glad everything went well and you were pleased with Zhanna's work and overall experience working with us! Thank you for great review, I really appreciate your time!

  • Working with Alina was great! She answered all of my emails within a day (usually the same day) and was very flexible and patient as I switched the number of people getting hair and makeup done multiple times. I ended up having Viktoriya do hair and make up for me, my mom, and MIL, and everyone loved their look! I really appreciate that she took her time and stayed calm all day despite the relative chaos going on around her. It was so nice to have a few relaxing hours getting my hair and makeup done before all the wedding day craziness started. She also did an amazing job recreating the trial look but with slight variations since I was less tan on my wedding day than during the trial which was amazing. Overall I had a great experience with Alina and Viktoriya and would recommend them to other brides!

    Elizabeth, thank you for your kind words about our work, I'm glad everything went smooth and you enjoyed it!

  • Alina was great to work with while I was planning my wedding out of state. She was extremely responsive and flexible, and I absolutely love how my hair and makeup came out! My wedding day hair ended up being a little different than the trial and I loved it even more. My makeup was natural as I had asked and looked great all night! My mom decided on the day-of that she wanted to get her makeup done, and Alina totally rolled with it. One of my bridesmaids also has sensitive skin and brought her own makeup, and Alina did such a fantastic job on her makeup that we were all in shock that you could get a look like that with over-the-counter makeup. I also loved getting ready with Alina and her assistant on the day of. They were professional but also hilarious and friendly as we were all getting ready. My bridesmaids looked amazing and I couldn't be happier with how everything came out. Alina is truly a pro - would highly recommend!

    Gabby, thank you for your wonderful review, I am very happy we were able to accommodate sensitive skin situation as well!
