    Very talented

    Tabitha did an amazing job on myself (Bride), 4 bridesmaids, and 2 mothers. Her airbrush technique is light but provides full coverage. She is also fun to be with! I would not have chosen anyone else for such an important day!

    Ciao Bella is the bomb

    My husband and I recently wed, and Ciao Bella did an excellent job of my hair and makeup. I was so pleased with everything.
    We had a private ceremony and our budget was tight. I got a look perfect for my wedding day at the regular cost of having my hair and makeup done for any other occasion. Of course your wedding day is unlike any other day, however, I feel that you should not have to pay additional costs just for being a bride! I choose this vendor because of their affordability and transparency in costs.
    I personally did not feel a need for a trial, so I bypassed this additional expense. They asked for inspiration photos of the look I wanted, and recreated it beautifully.
    They even were kind enough to help me with my dress as I did not have friends or family there for our private event.
    They made me feel relaxed and comfortable. They even matched my lip colour to my nails, and I appreciated the little lip pot to refresh my lips throughout the day.
    An excellent choice I highly recommend.

    Thank you for everything.

    5 Stars! Looked and felt beautiful

    Tabitha was sooo sweet and easy to work with. After much debating I went with air brush and OH MY GOSH WOW! Sooooo worth it. My make up made it through humidity, tears, sweat, 30 degree temps and a flash lightning rain storm during our outdoor photos! I looked beautiful and I felt beautiful. I had concerns having more mature skin but the air brushed foundation made my skin flawless vs foundation that normally settles in every pore and crease making me look and feel older. Absolutely worth every penny! She did exactly what I had requested and the whole experience was just amazing start to finish. So glad she could be a part of my day. ❤️

    Every Brides Nightmare - do not book them.

    Have never written a review online but this company shouldn’t be allowed on a wedding website. Showed up late, in attire that looked like they had been camping on a beach, cursed and talked amongst themselves the whole time (completely took away from the wedding morning bliss). Makeup ended up ok, Tabitha did airbrush makeup which is always great for photos. Her mom Rachel... should care enough about the fact that it is a woman’s wedding day and not ruined bride’s hair for some cash. Would have been better off having a little girl play hair dresser because it was a matted mess. Just asked for simple loose beach curls... very basic and easy hairdo. I was left panicking in the bathroom wondering what greasy product she could have possibly filled my hair with and the curls were like a 90’s frizzy mess. I don’t even know how it was possible.

    Worst part... I reached out to Tabitha after to let her know just so she knew going forward and got no response. In my opinion, don’t work in the wedding business unless you are someone who takes pride and cares about making a bride feel as they should on their wedding day. This was a really upsetting and dissapointing way to start my wedding day and had me showing up to my ceremony still panicking trying to figure out how to fix it. Ended up the following week getting everything redone to get photos done again... brutal.

    Ciao Bella Cosmetics & Makeup Artistry's reply:

    Cailey I don't even k ow how to respond to this right now!

    You didn't reach out to me otherwise I would have tried everything in my power to rectify this situation :(

    I have been in this Industry for a very long time and never once received a review like this!
    I have a stellar reputation and none of our past brides have ever been disappointed!

    Let's address some of your concerns!
    You told Rachel that you didn't want any hairspray in your hair, so in order to hold your curls she added a curl balm. I know you're not from here but something needed to be added otherwise the curls would have gotten destroyed. AFTER the balm was added you then asked for hairspray which is what caused the frizz. At that point the only way to fix it would have been to wash, dry and recurl your hair.

    I apologize for cursing, 99% of my clients love my no nonsense attitude where I treat everyone like friends and we just have a blast getting ready! We tried several times to Include you in the conversation and failed miserably, again a first for us!

    Late - by ten minutes so you're absolutely right. However when you called me while I was in San Diego I took your call and knowing full well I had another wedding booked that morning, did everything in my power to accommodate your schedule. I do over 140 weddings in a six month period - please believe me when I tell you that getting one bride ready is not simply for the money as I make more from a single photoshoot.

    Our attire - we live in an area where it is incredibly hot during the summer. Showing up in a sundress is not uncommon for wedding professionals, it's how we combat the heat!

    We asked you several times before we left what was wrong and you wouldn't tell us. We aren't mind readers however with how long we've been doing this we knew full well something was wrong. We have you the opportunity to fix it but how can we when you won't tell us what is wrong?

    Again, our very first negative review in 8 years and I apologize for your horrible experience. I received no phone call or email from you telling me you were disappointed otherwise I would have responded and at least offered some sort of refund.

    I would recommend Ciao Bella, but ONLY for Tabitha.

    I was married in September and used Tabitha for makeup and her mom Rachel for hair. I did trials prior and absolutely LOVED my makeup, but was underwhelmed with my hair. I decided to change to a style that Rachel had done similarly before, as she didn't seem to "get" my original inspiration and I don't think she had the skills to pull it off.

    Anyways, come wedding day, my hair took so long that makeup was rushed and I was late for my first look. We were supposed to do bridal party pictures after the first look, but Rachel took so long doing my MOHs hair that she ENTIRELY MISSED OUR PHOTOS! Because my makeup was so rushed, I didn't get the personal touch and while I still looked pretty, it wasn't the same level of glam gorgeous I was at the trial. The hair was also not what I wanted. I had shown pictures of updos with loose curls and light volume. What I got was very firm 90's prom kind of look with tight curls, back combed to heck and full of frizz and hair spray. Rachel is not a trained stylist and does not have the skills to pull off what I wanted - either time.

    Overall, I would still recommend Tabitha, but do yourself a favour and book a real hair stylist - lest it be YOU that misses your own pictures!
