From when she first replied to my Thumbtack inquiry to when she departed from completing my hair/makeup, I was so glad I recognized a gem and booked Felice to do my maid of honor's and my hair + makeup for my wedding. Felice is the most client-centered professional you will find. From our first call, she heard me out, made sure I had all the information I wanted (and information she needed), and spent as long on the phone as necessary to make sure we were a good match (plus, she made me laugh and feel at ease)! She is talented, professional, warm, and genuinely excited about her work. I don't usually wear much make-up or style my hair often, so I was probably a trickier client because I didn't know much about hair/makeup trends, terminology, etc. Yet Felice gleaned what I was going for and did a fantastic job. She was honest, clear, open, and a delight to work with. She was also incredibly flexible; I switched locations on her after booking (not a problem) and my maid-of-honor was unable to send photos of example hair/makeup looks prior to the job PLUS got burns on her face from deployed airbags during a car accident a couple days before the wedding and Felice was able to accommodate on-the-fly! Felice's portfolio photos are wonderful, yet they still don't do her skills justice. You can trust Felice when she gives any recommendation. You're more than just another job to her, and you can feel good knowing that you're safe in her hands... you will come out of the session with the exact look you expressed to her during the pre-session communication and/or trial (I didn't do a trial because I live out of state, so that's even more impressive). Can't recommend Felice (or her assistant, Ariel) enough -- book her if she's available!
