MEET THE TEAM
We are Gabby and Martha and this is us!
This is our story: We are two loving sisters who live for and are dedicated to our work of making people feel beautiful. Hair and makeup are our passion. It is really that simple! We feel we were born to do this, and we are so glad to be on this journey together.
We know that in the life of every woman, there will be occasions to shine brightly—those moments that will remain in her heart forever and will be captured for a lifetime in pictures. It means so much to us when a client looks at these pictures and says, “Man! I looked amazing!”
This is our greatest joy. We are so grateful for the countless times we have been told “You ladies are incredibly talented!” or that we have done a great job because then we know we have succeeded in helping a client feel as if she is shining brightly.
Even with our respective 20 years of experience, and feel that there is no style or challenge that we can’t handle, we never stop evolving. We constantly seek to improve our skills and our artistry. We also embrace the opportunity to help new artists by teaching and training them. This is the best way we know to honor our clients and our industry.
Our values are core to who we are and our word is our bond. Turning hair and makeup into art for each client is what we are all about.
Love, Gabby and Martha
Gabby and Martha were amazing!!
Gabby and Martha were amazing to work with and made me and my family feel and look SO beautiful on my wedding day. They were both so responsive and sweet and really took the time to listen to what I wanted to look like on my day of and went above and beyond my expectations. Gabby is a genius with hair and Martha will literally make you and your bridal party look like a million bucks. I cannot recommend Gabby and Martha enough, thank you both so so much!
Gabby and Martha were a delight to work with. I found them on Wedding Wire as well as in the credits for the tv show, Married at First Sight. They were very detailed oriented from the scheduling of the hair and makeup trial to the day of the wedding. I am glad that I did the hair and makeup trial before the wedding so they could perfect how my hair and makeup would look on my wedding day and I was extremely happy with how it turned out. They arrived on time the day of the wedding and had everything set up and ready to go. My bridesmaids and I were thrilled with Gabby and Martha's excellent job of perfecting everyone's hair and makeup and we finished on time. I would highly recommend them for your wedding!
Gabby and Martha were amazing from the very beginning until the end!!!! I had a trial with another makeup artist/hairstylist (not gabby or martha) a few months before my wedding and it was a disaster. About 30 minutes after the trial, my hairstyle started to completely fall apart, and I new I had to find someone new. I contacted Gabby and Martha after finding out they had done hair/makeup for a friend's wedding and the pictures were beautiful! Because I live on the west coast I couldn't do a trial until the week before my wedding, but I completely trusted them and they did not disappoint!!!! I ended up having a hair/makeup trial with Gabby and Martha a few days before my wedding and all I had to do was give them a simple description of what I wanted and they completely nailed it! It is incredible how they knew exactly what I was imagining in my head and made it come true with such ease. They made everything extremely simple and professional. They brought all of their equipment and even came to me for the trial, which was fantastic! They were easy to communicate with and sent very timely email responses to all of my (lots!) of questions. I was very nervous about having makeup, because I almost never wear makeup and I wanted it to look natural (many wedding pictures I look at it looks like the bride has WAY too much makeup and I didn't want that to happen). I couldn't have asked for them to do a better job, and they really listened to me and took direction (they weren't pushy about anything and when I said I did or didn't want anything, they listened). On the day of the wedding, my hairstyle and makeup lasted the entire night, and I was so thrilled and couldn't have been happier!! Thank you so much gabby and martha!!!!
I am a wedding planner based in DC and work have worked with so many HMUA's over my years of planning. Gabby and Martha have become my go-to's since meeting them a few years ago. They are not only super talented artists but are so wonderful at creating a calm and positive environment for our clients and their wedding parties on the morning of the wedding day. I've had clients use them for not only weddings but other portrait sessions, headshots, engagement photos and more. You will absolutely not regret choosing to work with them.
Gabby and Libby drove out to Luray, VA to do hair and makeup for me and my bridal party. They also did my hair and makeup trial a few weeks before my wedding. They were amazing. I felt put together and beautiful. I also felt like myself, despite being very done-up. Gabby, one of the owners of the business, responded within literal minutes each time I reached out to her (which was about a thousand times of having to reschedule). Gabby and Libby are easy-going, fun to be around, professional, and talented all at the same time. I will be honest, I was a little taken aback by the prices at first, but for the quality and experience, it was worth every penny, and honestly a discount considering the service I received.
