Hollie is an incredible artist and overall wonderful human being. I recommended/referred her to do hair and makeup for my cousin's wedding. My cousin suffers from eczema and wanted her skin to look flawless on her wedding day. Hollie did such a great job, providing airbrush makeup and a beautiful half-up formal style. My cousin was glowing as she walked down the aisle! Also, Hollie helped my cousin's mom (who suffers from dementia). She was so patient and gentle, even when the mother was falling asleep due to side effects of her medication. I can't say enough good things about Hollie. She is so professional and listens to the client's needs. Thank you, Hollie!!! xoxo
Hollie Berry has colored and cut my hair twice, making it so richly textured and lustrous someone asked if she could photograph its shininess in the San Diego sun. I was so pleased with not only my hair, but also with the results of a make-up session that I engaged her services for myself and my two visiting sisters for my son's wedding in November. All three of us--and we are no spring chickens!--were thrilled with how we looked, thanks to Hollie. She is super skilled, so sweet and sympathetic, and she really listens to your ideas about how you would like to look. And then she executes, perfectly and reasonably. Cannot say enough good things about her character and go-with-the-flow approach.
I am not one for much makeup; literally I have worn the same “look” since my friend Becca did my makeup for another wedding nearly 10 years ago. 😳
However, I wanted to look extra nice for the wedding I was attending Friday AND I have been obsessing over Hollie’s work since she started posting/sharing it. With me being in SF and her in SD, it’s hard to just book an appointment with her any old time. This wedding in San Diego was the perfect opportunity!
Our scheduling worked out great and then I asked about pricing. Honestly, I was a little taken aback by the cost and told Hollie that I needed to “think” about it. In fact, I only booked the session after also scheduling a photoshoot so that I could have my makeup done for the photoshoot AND wedding the same day.
IT WAS WORTH EVERY CENT AND MORE.
I had such an incredible experience getting my makeup done. Hollie was gentle, knowledgeable, accommodating, and, of course, we had the opportunity to catch up as friends as well.
I left Hollie’s chair feeling BEAUTIFUL and that lasted all day during the photoshoot and into the wedding that evening.
I have heard and even said, “it’s never about cost and always about value” ... I got waaaaay more than I paid for. There is literally no price I could put on how Hollie’s artistry made me FEEL that day.
It’s a great reminder to me that investing in myself (often through the services of others) makes all the difference in emotional/mental health and well-being, which is just as important as physical health.
Hollie, I really cannot thank you enough and I am already looking forward to the next time I get to have you work your magic on me!! 💜
