Sissi is the best of the best! I found her on Wedding Wire and really loved her style - very beautiful yet natural hair and makeup. I sent her a bunch of Pinterest pictures of hair and makeup I liked, and she was able to recreate the styles I wanted to the tee. Throughout the whole process she was always organized and prompt with email communication which I really appreciate. We scheduled a trial at my apartment and the style came out looking just as beautiful on the big day. Of course wedding day can be stressful but throughout it all Sissi was professional, friendly, and very laid back. My mom joked that there wasn't a need to get my hair and makeup professionally done since it would be coming apart by the end of the night, but I'm proud to say that through profuse amounts of tears and a rockin' dance floor, my hair AND makeup stayed intact! I opted for airbrush makeup and I think it really made a difference, the coverage was great but didn't look overdone. I loved working with Sissi and highly recommend her.

Absoutely Amazing...Really Listens & Does Gorgeous Work!

I hired Sissi Chan to do my wedding. I put together a few pictures with some ideas of what I wanted and did a trial before. She did a great job, but there were a few things I decided to tweak after I looked at the photos. Sissi rolled with it and did a phenomenal job on my wedding day...making the changes I asked for and executing it even better than I could have ever imagined. She was also a calming presence on the day of, arriving early and just generally being a lot of fun to have around. I very highly recommend her!

Loved her!

Sissi was amazing for my May 1st wedding. She was extremely responsive in the planning process. Our trial went great, and even though it was 6 months prior to the wedding, when the wedding day came she did everything perfect all over again. She also was always early – not just on time – a huge plus in my book. She was very easy to talk to and made my whole wedding party feel at ease. She was also calm as can be as my grandma stared at her for hours on end as she did everyone’s hair & make-up. She made my bridesmaids & my mom look absolutely beautiful. And I was so pleased with what she did for me. We took all of our pictures outside in 85 degree weather prior to the ceremony & I was so nervous all of our faces were going to melt off – somehow, they did not.

Sissi Chan was awesome! I would highly recommend her to do your hair & makeup on your wedding day or any occasion. She did my hair & makeup for my wedding and did an amazing job! She was extremely patient and professional during my trial and put a great deal of effort in understanding my style and preference. She was friendly and worked very efficiently the day of. Ultimately I felt like a princess because my hair and makeup was flawless and so well received. All thanks to the talented Sissi Chan. It was such a pleasure to work with her.

Incredible Makeover!

Sissi was recommended through a friend and what drew me to her was her prices. I went through two trials with Sissi because I did not know what I wanted. But each time, Sissi's work on transforming me was amazing. A couple weeks before the wedding, I changed my mind about my hair style entirely and totally took a chance with it on the wedding day. Sissi was supportive and was not phase by my uncertainty. On my wedding day, she made feel absolutely stunning - I felt like 1950's hollywood glam!

An amazing make up artist!

Sissi did an astonishingly fabulous job on my wedding day. She was calm, efficient, warm and gracious about any changes you wanted. My family loved her: my sister adored her sense of humor and her willingness to do their makeup according to their specifications. My mother was blown away when Sissi was done with her makeup. My makeup was light, natural and polished; it looked as fresh at 3am as it did when she first applied it, and it lasted through tons of crying and sweaty dancing! My hair was incredible. It was truly a work of art, and the best part was that it was secure and light--making it's way through an entire day's pictures, dancing, hugging completely unscathed! I would highly recommend her for anyone's wedding day. You should be so lucky! Especially for those Asian brides--my hair was so voluminous I couldn't believe it. Definitely one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day!

Sissi Chan did an amazingly beautiful job on my hair and makeup for my wedding this past August. It all turned out even better than I had imagined -- I was just thrilled with the way I looked. I felt like a princess! Even though I hadn't had a trial before my wedding day, she was able to make me look exactly the way I wanted. She listened to my every request as we went along, adjusting whatever I asked, even very minor things. She was so sweet and accommodating and pleasant to chat with in the very early morning when I was getting ready. (And she was right on time, of course -- very professional all around) She responds to email and phone messages promptly, and has a great website. I would HIGHLY recommend Sissi Chan to anybody needing hair or makeup done for a special occasion. Every bride should be so lucky to have such a wonderful hair and makeup artist on her wedding day!

Amazing Bridal Hair and MakeUp!

Stop wasting your time researching, I've done the work for you. She was so friendly and nice. Very professional. She made my bridesmaid and me so beautiful. Timeless and classic looks. My mother was especially pleased, she received so many compliments as did I. I really wanted an asian artist familiar with my type of skin tone and hair, since I'm Chinese. Very reasonably priced, top notch service. She provided helpful tips to make my make up last throughout the day. Without her expertise, our pictures wouldn't have come out as gorgeous. I can't wait for another occasion to use her services again.

Sissi is great! She and I communicated months before my wedding to come up with hair/makeup ideas. My makeup was exactly the way I wanted (neutral yet bright) and she even took the time to readjust my hair when I wanted to change it last minute (I had hair extensions put in too). My wedding was in the afternoon so she had to come to my house at 7am in the morning, so I can't thank her enough. She also advised me to keep lipstick and blotting powder on my side to touch up for pictures taken throughout the day. I can go on and on, but basically, I'm an asian girl in NY who wanted someone with asian hair experience (cause we know how thin and limp our hair can get), AND Sissi has great prices. I highly recommend her =)

Reasonably priced, down to earth, professional

I'm so happy to have found Sissi for my wedding day. Her prices are reasonable and did a fantastic job with my hair and make up, also with my maid of honor. I decided to change my mind with my hair from the trial, my maid of honor showed up a bit late, but Sissi was calm and flexible...a pleasure to work with. The best part is that she will travel to your location. She gets her business usually through word of mouth...and I can see why! Excellent and I highly recommend her.
