I recently had the pleasure of working with Ashley on a photo shoot. I am a hairdresser that has worked on fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings, and in the salon for 9 years. I have worked with many industry professionals, and Ashley gets 5 stars. She is on time, she is flexible to clients vision while offering expert advice, her color palette ranges from playful looks too elegant glamour, and her personality is a joy. I was impressed with her ability to take on even skintones to natural and glowing. Beautiful work Ashley looking forward to our next collaboration!
Ashley was the first vendor that I booked as I was positive that I wanted her! She had done my makeup for a friend’s wedding where I was the MOH and I loved how it turned out. Not only is she a phenomenal makeup artist, who listens to what you want, she is also someone you want to be with you while you are getting ready for the best day of your life. She makes you feel like you are her only client by remembering minor details from emails or the makeup trial. She asks questions I wouldn’t have thought of such as, what is the color palette for the bridesmaids, is it ok for them to wear a bright color, etc so that you don’t have to be the bad guy at your wedding. I loved working with Ashley and would highly recommend her to my closest friends and family.
It was a pleasure working with Ashley on my client’s wedding day. Her attention to detail, prompt emails, and thorough beauty schedules put the bride and myself at ease. I love when beauty artists take the time to schedule each girl’s time with hair and make-up. No one was rushed, everyone was on time and all looked radiant. It was a good start to the day. Looking forward to referring her team more. (Wedding Planner)
Words can’t describe how talented Ashely is. I hired her for my wedding day and I was nervous because I don’t wear a lot of makeup. I described what I was envisioning and she brought it to life with ease and confidence. Not only does she work wonders, but her professionalism and personality make you feel comfortable. It’s important to look beautiful on your wedding day, and thanks to Ashley she accomplished this, and just to top it off she made it a fun and relaxing experience.
7/18/16 TRIAL: You are so adorable, talented and fun to be around!! You will make Jess’ wedding day so easy-breezy and special. LOVE that!! xo 8/9/16 WEDDING: You are AMAZING!! Jessica was the most beautiful bride and I had so many compliments about my makeup!! Still haven’t washed my eyes so I can keep on my little false eyelashes… obsessed! 🙂 THANK YOU!!!
Ashley is a wonderful makeup artist and consummate professional. She is also a very lovely person to spend time with. I asked for a natural “no makeup” look for a family photo shoot. I looked like me, but better. Every step of the process was super organized and clear from setting up the contract to convening on the day. I am so looking forward to working with Ashley again soon.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with Ashley for years now and I’m able to call her my friend. Friendship aside – Ashley is so talented. When it came time for my wedding there was no other option. I was so honored to have her make the trip to Italy to do my hair and make up. We didn’t even do a trial and she blew it out of the water. She read my mind and nailed both of my looks! I can’t recommend Ashley enough. She takes away all worries for your wedding look!!
Ashley Fierro made me look like the very best possible version of myself in my business photos. My only experience working with makeup artists before meeting Ashley was not great – I didn’t look like myself because they put on way too much brightly-colored makeup and it didn’t even look like me. So when scheduling a very important photo shoot, I contacted Ashley and loved how she just got me and what I was looking for even in just a phone call. On the day of the photo shoot I was nervous and stressed by the time I met up with Ashley. But the moment I sat down in her chair, I feel more relaxed. Ashley is easy, breezy, professional and really took away my stress. I felt like I was in great hands. The results were amazing. She really is an artist. Ashley made me look like a celebrity version of myself. I felt so pretty and confident – and that totally came through in the photos. They turned out fantastic and I felt really proud of them. I also loved the makeup that she used, so I bought some and use it everyday. It’s the best! I highly recommend Ashley!
Ashley was a pleasure to work with prior to my engagement photo shoot. We decided we would treat the day as a wedding day trial as well. Great idea on her part! Before she lifted a makeup brush, we spent 10-15 minutes discussing her approach, the style I was going for, color options and details, etc. We went through several photos just to be sure she would execute what I was envisioning. Her attention to detail was perfect. We stopped a few times from start to finish, just to be sure I liked the direction she was going in. How thoughtful. I highly recommend Ashley Fierro Makeup for any future brides to be! I know I’ll be using her on my wedding day next year!
Okay ladies, look no further. Ashley is your first and last choice when it comes to makeup! We had her come help us with an event and I wish I had her do our wedding. She made my wife look like a model on vanity fair. Reasonable, organized, responsive and friendly. Simply the best in the business. Make your reservations early ladies….
