She was booked for my wedding and recommended Ai Sakai who I LOVED! She is great. Check her out if you are looking for someone else.

In my experience, she was very prompt in replying to my emails and yea, we had to go back and forth a couple of times to find a trial date that worked for both of us, but we were able to make time. I was actually 30 mins late to the trial due to work and she was very understanding.

Also, I originally booked her to do hair and makeup for everyone (6 women), she said she could handle it. However, I was concerned about time and so I asked her to recommend a second hair/mu person. Sachiko not only understood my worries, she took it upon herself to ask a number of hair/makeup artists she frequently works with to see if they were free (Ai Sakai, Reiko, stacey pitt, etc.).

 In terms of her work, at the trial, she went through 2 different make up looks with me and about 5 different up-dos. She was very maticulous with putting on the individual fake eye lashes. So much so, that I booked a second make-up artist to help out on the day (she does air brushing) but I am tempted to ask Sachiko to do my eyelashes anyway (dunno yet, bc I don’t want to offend the other artist).

That being said, I booked all my vendors (photog, florist, etc) based on not only the quality of their work, but on their communication skills and how they handle their business. I want someone that I feel comfortable depending on, on my wedding day. If you have any hesitations, it doesn’t hurt to explore other stylists as well.

Good luck! I hope you find someone you like soon. It seems in my experience, hair/mu people in NYC book up FAST!

I loved working with Sachiko.  Because I was very indecisive, she tried many different styles to help me picture what I might look like. 

She was so understanding when I tried to coordinate a trial date with an e-shoot with a very popular photographer (so many back and forth on dates).  The popular photographer flaked out on me the day of the shoot and I called Sachiko to cancel.  I felt so bad because Sachiko was high in demand and scheduling around commercial shoots. 

I would use her again in a heartbeat.  She showed up early the day of my reception and got to work right away.  The only thing that I had to get use to was that it took a day to get an email back.  As someone who works on a computer all day long, I’m used to seeing email responses within minutes or hours.  She doesn’t get to go on a computer as often.
