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!Sent on 14/08/2019

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.Sent on 12/08/2019
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. ❤️Sent on 08/09/2019

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.Sent on 13/08/2018
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.

I would recommend Ciao Bella, but ONLY for Tabitha.Sent on 20/11/2017
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!
