Amazing bridal HMUA team
I had Ishnae & Co. for my engagement party back in 2019 and immediately knew I NEEDED them for my big day. Even through covid, the team was fantastic with communication and even accommodated a year’s postponement. Fast forward to December 2021 and Ishnae made all of my bridal hair and makeup goals come true. They were utterly professional even through all of the family and wedding drama. They just knew how to be your best friends in your moment. We even sang some songs together to relieve the stress. They got me ready from head to toe and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Highly highly recommend this team to make all of your hair and makeup dreams come true.

Exceeded All Expectations
Short version: I used Ishshah and Renee for my trial and events. They are amazing, attentive, patient, punctual, and super talented! Their work exceeded all expectations and looked great hours later. They seemed to actually care to make you happy without any diva-like attitude. If you want to more details, please keep reading.
Long version: I have super sensitive skin and very uncooperative hair. I've been on medication for my skin for over 10+ years. Every other time I've had my hair done in the past, the curls would fall apart after an hour. Needless to say, I needed a team that was willing to be super patient with me. I booked a trial to see how things would go.
Weeks before, their team asked for specific details about all my skin issues, and patiently responded to all my questions. It was clear they really wanted to make this work. Prior to the trial, they gave me a list of brands they use. I was able to play with the products at Sephora well in advance to ensure no reactions. At the trial, Renee wrote down all the products she used. The team followed up with me after, and thankfully no reactions! Also, I forgot to bring my hair extensions but Ishah somehow still made my hair look amazing! 5+ hours later when I came home, the curls were still in tact, in my real hair! I was thoroughly impressed with how I looked and how things held up.
For my wedding, they showed up slightly early and we got started right away! Again, totally blown away by what they produced. I showed some Pinterest inspiration pictures and what I got was wayyyy better than Pinterest. Renee, also brought her notes with her from the trial so we could use all the products she knew I wouldn't react to. These ladies are very thorough and very caring. An aunty was supposed to help me get ready, but she never showed up. Ishah and Renee kept me calm throughout the entire ordeal, and stepped up to help in any way they could.
For the reception, they completely removed everything and started from scratch. I have actually heard of artists just adjusting what they have already done but still charging a ton. Ishah and Renee are legitimately giving you full looks each time. Again, they were on time and finished on schedule. Like the trial, the curls and hair stayed put! This time, I remembered my extensions :)
If you want quality service, attention to detail, and amazing results, book these ladies!
