Testimonials

  • "Esme got me ready for a big gala at the Kennedy Center and worked with me to make sure I had the look I wanted. I loved her creativity, expertise, and willingness to go big with the drama I wanted. Couldn’t be happier with the experience and wish I had more occasions coming up so I could have the excuse of getting glammed up again. Thank you Esme and MAB"

  • "Last Sunday was my son's wedding and Esme did my mother-in-law's and my hair and make-up. I cannot give enough praise for her talent, her lovely disposition and all the care and services she provided us with. Esme was on time getting to the hotel and worked within the time frame we had to get ready. She worked in such a way that was so serene, it made a rather hectic morning seem very spa-like. She was wonderful!!"
