Amazing make up and hair
I did a trial with Elka for my wedding. She was amazing to work with, she always responds in timely manner. She made me feel very comfortable. My make up and hair were great and lasted the whole day. I booked her and her team for my wedding too. I would use her for any future events too :).Sent on 23/10/2020

Such an amazing artist! The best hair and make up artist Ever
Elka knows what suits her clients, she knows exactly what to do and how to make her clients feel beautiful and confident. There wasn’t a dull moment during the make up session and she knows how to take care of the bride. My mom who’s picky with my make up looks thought Elka did a great job. Can’t thank Elka enough for that day.Sent on 27/09/2020

Amazing and professional
got more than what I asked for. Elka was amazing and very professional. Make up was not caked on my face, and normally my face has always been caked. Hair was above and beyond what I asked for.Sent on 08/09/2020

Hire this lovely lady or you will wish you had!
I, of course, being who I am, booked everything last minute, including my makeup artist. But I’m really glad I did because everything worked out better than expected! Elka was AMAZING! When I called her to enquire about her services, I immediately appreciated her easygoing demeanor. She made me feel at ease, like this was something she did all the time (she does) and I instantly knew she was the perfect choice. On the big day she arrived on time (I was running late), highly prepared and relaxed. I had booked a separate hairstylist (a personal friend) so me and my two bridesmaids were were all alternating between makeup and hair. She got to work on my two bridesmaids makeup first and they were completed super fast. They were beautiful! Because I was late Elka did not have a lot of time to complete my makeup, so especially when you consider this she really did a fantastic job! The three of us all had beautiful (and NOT cake face clown🤡) makeup that lasted all day long (and far into a long evening!!!) We were all so impressed our makeup lasted looking fabulous in August!!! Thank you ELKA!!!!Sent on 04/09/2020

Lovely person, and stunning results
Elka was lovely to work with, and did an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my wedding. Everyone kept telling me how stunning I looked. Even my younger brother came over to tell me that my makeup looked amazing and made my blue eyes really pop. My hair was so gorgeously done– I thought it looked even better than the picture I sent to her from Pinterest! Thanks Elka for making my special day even more special 💛Sent on 18/08/2020
