Bridal Testimonies

Cristal & Alisha

Cristal and I are eternally grateful to Tainted for being able to make our ideas bigger and better! For styling our hair and make up, and making our experience feel like we were more than just customers. Tainted were the best choice for our wedding and will continue to be our first choice for future events. They made our fantasy wedding come true, and made us feel calm every step of the way. 

We were able to form an instant bond with everyone at Tainted, and we will continue to highly recommend everyone to choose Tainted for all their events. There is no limit to their ability to make you look or feel your best, and their creative souls have no limit to what they can make happen for anyone.

The right make-up and hair were extremely important for me as well as it is for every bride. I don’t think it’s just their skills that makes for a perfect artist, it's their personality and Tainted met both of these. From the beginning, they were extremely professional from the initial meeting in discussing the contract details and pricing through the day of our wedding.

I have to say being African American, I was concerned as to whether they would be able to meet my needs. My initial meeting, they sat and discussed what I was looking for, they were open to me sharing photos for the bridal look I was going for, and to make sure I was happy they offered me an additional trial -- all to make sure that I was happy with their services.

Not only did they take the time with me, but also with my Maid of Honor and bridal party. I shared pictures with them of my bridal party and the day of my wedding they were well prepared which made all of my Brides Maids and the mothers look absolutely fabulous as well as the wedding photos. Not only did they assist me with my make-up, but they also assisted me in identifying someone to do my hair for my wedding day, which is a bonus you get with their one stop shop services (shout out to Rafael). Andrea is good at hair designs so she helped me style my birdcage veil with my hair.

The Tainted team welcomed us and listen to my request which was so important. Thank you to Tainted, Inc for helping to make our special day wonderful and colorful.

I used Tainted for their makeup services for the six ladies in my bridal party, my mother, and myself, as well as their beautifully vintage-decorated studio as the getting ready location for the morning of the wedding. 

One of my primary concerns was choosing a makeup team who knew how to work with the particularities of Asian features, but the ethnically diverse team has an equally diverse portfolio of experience and the individual artists bring their own natural creativity and personal flair. They were even flexible enough to accommodate my request for cruelty-free makeup. I couldn't have been happier with the results! 

Most of all, I was impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. Based on my day-of experience as well as the trial a couple months beforehand, they were by far one of the easiest vendors with whom I worked and I have absolutely no regrets about my decision to book with them.

By choosing Tainted for your special day, you're not only bringing on a team of fun and talented artists who care just as much about making your day perfect as you do, but also a socially conscious small business that is both involved and invested in the local community. If you're looking for any or all of the above, Tainted is the right choice for you.

Andrea and the team at Tainted were incredible to work with.  From the minute I stepped into the studio for my trial I knew that I wanted to work with them for my wedding.  You leave the studio looking, but more importantly, feeling beautiful.

I used Tainted for all my wedding needs: day-of, for my bridal party and family, and my pre-wedding events, like my bridal shower. I loved the emphasis put on my natural beauty rather than trying to make me look like someone else.  My entire wedding party looked gorgeous and natural. 

Even my flower girl enjoyed her puff of “fairy dust” on her face!  I would highly recommend Tainted and can’t wait to use them again for an upcoming event.
