I personally just booked Sachiko. She’s been doing this for 20 years and as you saw, she’s super talented and sweet to boot. I also think her packages are a better deal. I guess if you’re just looking for bridal hair & makeup, it’s better to go with Stacy or someone else who doesnt make you go with a package, but if you’re looking for services for your wedding party and/or moms, I think Sachiko would be a better choice. Plus, she has the most reviews (official and organic) that I’ve seen and reviews don’t lie.

I used Sachiko for my wedding and I can’t say enough good things about her. The work that she did was flawless (both makeup and hair) and she was such a lovely person to have in the bridal suite while getting ready. She was super professional and so sweet. Each of my bridesmaids had totally different hair types (One curly, one thick and curly, one long and pin straight) and her creations were beautiful on all of them. They were also not super weddingy, which I liked. My hair and makeup, as well as my bridesmaids hair, all lasted throughout the entire evening, through dancing and everything. The only thingI had to touch-up was my lipstick.

She ended up giving me a brand new MAC LipGlass that she had with her and wouldn’t take any money for it (I snuck an extra $20 into her tip) and the package was one of the best deals I could find for a person willing to work on me and my three bridesmaids on site. She’s amazing and I would book her again a thousand times over.

In terms of timing, she did my hair and make-up (airbrush) and each of my bridesmaids hairstyles. She arrived at around noon (she was actually at the hotel a little earlier than I was) and we finished up around four thirty. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, so she could probably have worked a little faster if necessary. She was also very open to changing things (one of my bridesmaids was a little picky) and honing them down until everyone was comfortable.

She was great!
