Highly recommend: Harsha combines hair/makeup with South Asian-American cultural acumen
Three words: Harsha is amazing! She did 1.) a bridal preview session, 2.) hair and makeup for me on my wedding day, and 3.) hair and makeup for me, my mom and my sister on the day of my reception party. From start to finish across the three days of services, she was professional, punctual, collaborative, considerate, and efficient. She took the tentative ideas I had for each look and helped elevate them to reality. Her makeup work was immaculate: it looked fantastic in real life and the photos, and stayed comfortably in place the whole time. She encouraged us to have fun with eyelashes, color and sparkle and other festive additions that I'd never tried before, and even tastefully arranged our jewelry and dupattas at the end. I was wearing a sari one day and a lehenga the other, and just felt so fortunate to have found someone who relates to and can execute both Indian and American tastes and looks. As she worked, she spoke to me the whole time with the deepest compassion and kindness, and thoughtfully uplifted my confidence and self-esteem ahead of these big events. I felt such a lovely, trusting connection with Harsha. She does beautiful work, grounded in practicality and humanity, and I highly recommend her!

Wonderful for many different ages!
Harsha and her team were great. They worked on hair and makeup for my engagement ceremony. My mother and MIL got hair and makeup services and they both wanted very natural looks. Harsha and her team did a great job and made them look glam without going overboard. Harsha worked on my hair and makeup and did a great job, was super adaptable even when I told her I wanted to change my look the day of. Additionally, I have oily skin so was very worried about my makeup not lasting all day- but was not an issue at all!

I can't say enough great things about Harsha. She is so talented and really is an artist. Harsha did my makeup and hair for my bridal photoshoot, indian wedding and american wedding. She was so responsive and easy to work with. Harsha was professional and so much fun to be around through the process of 3 events. I loved working with her and feel so lucky I found her from a friend who also had a great experience. You won't be disappointed if you choose Harshalani Makeup and Hair! And wow, it was so great having someone who can do Indian and American makeup and hair flawlessly.
