  • I could not recommend Rare Bird Beauties more! If you are looking for high-quality hair and makeup services for your wedding, book them now! Ioana and Jen were a pleasure to work with for my December wedding, and made my vision for my hair and makeup (as well as my bridesmaids, MOB, MOG, and step-mom) a reality on my wedding day.

  • Listen up, folks- I have never felt more beautiful in my life than on my wedding day. Ever. Let's be real, we all know someone who looked a little extra after getting wedding hair and makeup done, but trust me when I say that you will look and feel ethereal if you hire Konstantine and Danielle from Rare Bird Beauties. The owners, Ioana and Jen, are incredibly committed and passionate about their jobs, which is demonstrated in how wonderful they were throughout what is a very stressful wedding planning process. Both Konstantine and Danielle were attentive to what I was envisioned and definitely delivered, but also provided this added level of expertise that resulted in a more perfect look than I could've imagined. I am so grateful for Konstantine, Danielle, and RBB and HIGHLY recommend them. Don't be a dummy and book with them.

  • I chose Rare Bird Beauties to do my hair for my wedding a few weeks ago, Jen did my hair and she was AWESOME! I had a total of three hair trials before I found RBB, didn't like any of them until I did a trial with Jen at RBB. I showed her a picture of what I was envisioning and she was able to do my hair exactly how I wanted! I ordered extensions from RBB and they color matched me perfectly. The day of the wedding Jen and Rebecca did my and my bridesmaids hair and everyone was so happy with how their hair turned out! I would recommend RBB to anyone looking for a hair/makeup artist!

  • This review is so long overdue! I was married on 10.19.19 and had the pleasure of working with Ioana, Jen, Val and Danielle for my wedding day and I couldn't have been more impressed. They were responsive and professional leading up to my wedding day and fit right in with my bridesmaids and family the day of. Ioana even sent me a ton of photos she took of us getting ready the day after our wedding, which was incredibly thoughtful and so great to wake up to. I've had my hair and makeup done for other weddings and have not always loved it. I've never felt more beautiful than my wedding day thanks to Ioana and Jen! Every single one of my bridesmaids and a few family members that had their hair and makeup done were just as impressed and I've had one friend already book them for her wedding next year. Their calendars fill up quickly so my only advice would be too book them ASAP!

  • I cannot say enough good things about RBB. Jen and Ioana were the dream team! After setting my wedding date, they were the first vendor that I booked and I could not be more happy with that decision. From the beginning, everything was so easy with them- the communication, scheduling, payments, you name it. I have been in a couple weddings where not everyone in the bridal party likes their hair and makeup and ends up redoing it, but I can honestly say everyone loved their hair and makeup and we got compliments all day. We never even had to do touch ups the whole day! I have rosacea and my redness usually starts peeking through quickly after applying makeup. Not the case for my wedding day! No rosacea in sight. Ioana did such an awesome job and I have never felt prettier! The day of, I told Jen about how my hair fell down after my trial. She made changes and my hair stayed put the entire day, even through the rain and dancing! Both Jen and Ioana are so fast at what they do, but that... Read more

  • So happy I went with Rare Bird Beauties! They knew exactly what would look good for each person in my wedding party, including the mothers. I was so happy with how I looked, hair & makeup, and it looked amazing the entire day. It was hot and humid outside, and my hair tends to get frizzy and lose it's shape, but everything stayed in place. Awesome team!

  • I had Valerie for makeup and Danielle for hair for my 8/10/19 wedding and I have so many wonderful things to say about these artists, as well as this company! First of all, the professionalism is top notch. All of my logistics went through co-owner, Ioana. She is super responsive, accommodating, and organized. She even texted me the night before my wedding to wish me well! How sweet is that?! My artists, Valerie and Danielle, helped to make the morning go by so smoothly. I got to just hang out with my bridesmaids and take some time to enjoy everyone's company. Both ladies worked quickly and efficiently and were just all around very sweet and great to be around. I used to hate having my makeup done by other people, but I knew I wanted a professional for my wedding day. Now, I don't think I will ever be satisfied with how I do my own makeup! Valerie did a beautiful job on me and all the girls, and it lasted all day! Her color choices were so flattering! To the contrary, I ne... Read more

  • Ioana took the time to make sure my whole party was stunning. My mom was especially worried about age appropriate makeup for her because she's had some really bad experiences in the past. Ioana did her makeup, my makeup, my MIL, and my mom's makeup flawlessly! And she was even ahead of schedule. It was amazing. I would book Rare Bird Beauties again in a heartbeat.

  • I never like getting my hair & make-up done, so Jen & Ioana had their work cut out for them, and they 110% delivered! Day of, I last minute decided to change hair & make-up, and Ioana & Jen were incredibly great accommodating. I also had a last-minute addition to the schedule, and it was so easy to work with them to get my SIL on the schedule. Overall, I definitely recommend RBB -- they helped to make the day special & fun, were incredibly easy to work with, very flexible, and super talented!

  • Rare Bird Beauty made a fantastic partner for all of our wedding beauty needs. Leading up to the event, Jen and Iona proved incredible organized, helpful, responsive and insightful. Their communication platform made planning more streamlined, which i greatly appreciated throughout the process. We were able to add a second artist just a few months before the wedding, giving us flexibility. They paired me with the artist of my choice, Shannon, who was INCREDIBLE!!! Every single one of my bridesmaids LOVED their makeup, and I was obsessed with mine. I would hire Shannon time and time again.

  • I used Rare Bird Beauties for my makeup for my wedding day and I couldn't have been happier. Ioana was so flexible with everything to make sure the end result was exactly what I wanted, which was a very simple, elegant look. My bridal party was extremely happy with their makeup as well! Would definitely recommend!

  • Konstantine seemed to be able to read my mind on what makeup I wanted. We did a romantic winter wedding and he got my vibe right away and tailored my whole look with minimum guidance. The makeup was light and I still looked like myself, my two big requirements. We had a long reception and makeup lasted the entire 12 hours I needed it to! Danielle did my hair and did a wonderful job despite me not being able to fully describe what I wanted. It was stylish and never too much. (Big or hairspray) Both are fun, delightful people. My grandmothers did hair and makeup with us and both were delighted by them. I have already referred rare bird to a friend!

  • I would absolutely recommend Rare Bird Beauties after my experience with them. They were incredibly accommodating throughout the process, as I was not certain who I was including in hair/makeup or who wanted to be included (I did not have a bridal party). They were happy to make any changes that were made even if it was last minute, such as adding people on or adding more services to the trial, such as my mother also doing her hair and makeup. The quality of their work speaks for itself and I would highly recommend checking out their website to see some of their looks. I could not have imagined myself looking better, and somehow they managed to do that as my hair and makeup day off was somehow more beautiful than my trial. Both Ioana and Jen were so easy to work with and made me feel very relaxed at both the trial and day off. I know everyone else who had their hair and makeup done had amazing things to say about them as well. I pretty much got exactly what I asked for and more. Rare ... Read more

  • Jen and Stephanie were amazing! Not only are they amazing artists they are amazing people! While remaining professional they also made it fun getting ready with them and talking. Everyone felt very comfortable and that all their individual beauty needs were listened to and met-for both hair and makeup. My hair and makeup looked better than I could have ever dreamed of for my wedding day! They were very professional, communicative and punctual from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend them!! Thank you Rarebird Beauties- you seriously rock!

  • Unbelievable. 10 stars! As a Chanel freelance makeup artist myself, I am extremely selective when hiring others to do my makeup (honestly, this was the first time I ever had anyone else do my makeup for an event). I spent hours searching for a makeup artist. Once I came across Ioana's work, I fell in love and wanted her to do my makeup. It was further solidified at my trial after meeting her. Ioana did my makeup, my 2 bridesmaids, my mom's and my mother-in-law's on my wedding day and everyone loved their makeup so much. My makeup lasted perfectly through tears and 12 hours of running around. Her products are top-notch and she is so sweet and kind. I can't thank her enough for being a part of my day. I only wish she was local for me as I would love to have her do my makeup for special events in the future as she is so calming, kind and such a talent. Seriously loved her so much
