Having a destination wedding involves a certain amount of trust in the ability of others. We recently got married at the Kahala in Oahu with the help and talent of Mia Moriguchi. Due to travel and time constraints, I had to schedule my trial hair and makeup session the day before the wedding. It was very apparent at this appointment that Mia is an extremely talented artist. Mia has always been very timely with email correspondences and even had a printout of the conversations where I had depicted what I wanted the hair and makeup to look like. The day of the wedding, Mia and her assistants completed the hair and makeup of 2 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and myself in 3 hours without stress or mishaps. Everyone looked glamorous AND natural. My hair and makeup, however, stole the show. Without any intention to toot my own horn, I received so many comments from even the most stoic relatives of how gorgeous the hair and makeup was (even from my little brother - who rarely is impressed). My husband still says that the hair style made everything come together - the dress, the destination, the resort... Mia is a consummate professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her prices are definitely reasonable - especially for the caliber of work she provides. Of all the vendors that I worked with for our destination wedding, she is the one I most recommend. Thanks Mia!
