I have known the founder of XO Beauty professionally for over 10 years, and I can tell you with 100% certainty that like a fine wine she just gets better with age! Alexis has all the qualities you want for your hair/makeup/wedding/beauty/make-me-feel-pretty occasions: expertise, vision, professionalism, warmth, style...I could keep going.
Just recently, I was part of a bridal party that Alexis and her team were in charge of beautifying for the big event. I have never seen a more beautiful bride, Alexis channeled the bride's inner radiance and made her shine!! As the bride's sister, another team member of XO Beauty did my hair and makeup, and it felt as though it was Alexis herself taking care of me! I hadn't felt that pretty in ages 🙂 Alexis has done a fantastic job of creating and leading a team of talented professionals, and if I'm ever in San Diego again I'll be quick to book them again. Fantastic work!
After many years of being unhappy with my hairstylist I finally found Alexis! It started with her doing my hair and makeup for my wedding and then transformed into her doing my cut and colors. That was 4 years ago and I can't imagine letting anyone else touch my hair. When I have a special event and need hair and makeup Alexis is always there with a smile. Thank you Alexis for always making me feel beautiful!
Alexis is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my hair! I started going to her for my color almost 10 years ago now and she has only gotten better at what she does with time! She is absolutely amazing at color, cut and styling. I had her do both my hair and makeup for my bridal shower and mine and my mother's hair for my wedding day. I have never felt so beautiful in my life because of her! I would recommend her to any and everyone for all things hair and makeup. She will always be my #1 go to for all things glam! Thank you Alexis, you are an angel!
I have been getting my hair done by Alexis for about 10 years now. She saved my hair!! I went from wispy "long" hair (which was really a tail of long hair) to the thick, luxurious long hair that I have today!! I have been asked several times if I have extensions (which I don't) and get complimented on my hair all the time. I never thought I'd be that girl whose hair people are envious of, but thanks to Alexis, I am!!! You won't regret choosing Alexis!!
Alexis did my hair and makeup for my rehearsal dinner! She did a fantastic job!!! I felt beautiful! She was on time, polite and super sweet! I would recommend her and her services to anyone. Thank you again!!!
Alexis is amazing! She did such a fantastic job doing 8 ladies hair on my wedding day. She was on time, professional, SO SWEET and just a cool chick. We were ready EARLY on my wedding day, which is like the coolest thing ever. I was worried about feeling rushed and I wasn't at all. I loved my hair and all my bridesmaids loved theirs also! THANK YOU XO BEAUTY CO. I felt like a beauty queen rock star on my wedding day thanks to you guys.
Alexis is truly professional, as well as extremely talented. We had two appointments, one for hair and make-up test and then final appointment. She responded quickly to requests, was always on time, set realistic goals and executed beautifully. Everyone at my son's wedding commented on my lovely hair and fantastic makeup. She also did my friend's make up and once again, great comments. I can't wait to have another occasion for Alexis to make me beautiful!
I needed some professional photos done for a website last minute. I like a very natural look, and I had no idea how to replicate that without looking washed out in the photos. Alexis was prompt to respond to my message and was very helpful with the scheduling. The fact that XO was able to travel to my office was so helpful as I was tightly scheduled that day. Having Megan do both my hair and makeup on-site eased my stress dramatically. And, when I saw the result of her work, I felt incredibly confident going into the photo shoot. Both hair & makeup were photo ready and fit my style. I highly recommend XO and Megan!
Alexis and her team were an absolute delight and truly made my wedding day magical!!! Everyone had the best attitude and all 16 of my bridesmaids were so happy with their hair and makeup!! Everyone looked beautiful! Book XO beauty for the most talented, joyful and glamorous group of hair and makeup artists!
Alexis is the absolute best person that you could possible hope to have make you look and feel beautiful on your wedding day. I felt like a princess and she is also the sweetest person I have ever met. She was extremely communicative and amazing at what she does. I looked and felt like a princess and I would recommend every bride seek out XO Beauty for their wedding day because truly Alexis and her team are the best in town. Thank you for making my big day so special!
Alexis is INCREDIBLY talented. I live across the country so I had limited opportunities to conduct a hair & make-up trial but she was so flexible with me and even met over the holidays to ensure I felt comfortable before my big day. In addition to myself, I had 9 bridesmaids, mom, mother-in-law, and grandma that all needed hair/make-up. She brought her team with her, they were on time, and were able to get everyone done in the time frame they said. My bridesmaids were all super happy with their styles and their make up was flawless. I was blown away with my hair and makeup. Alexis colored my hair several days prior and they were a perfect match with the extensions she was able to incorporate. The best part? It RAINED on my wedding day and by the end of the night, my hair still looked amazing (a bit of a beachy boho look ;)) and my makeup was totally in tact. I was so, so happy. To top it all off, Alexis is so fun and has a heart of gold.
Alexis did my bridesmaids hair! I told the girls they could have any variation of up-do or pony they would like. Alexis listened to each individual persons needs and style then crafted their own look. I thought they all looked so beautiful and polished. Thanks Alexis!
I had my hair and makeup done for my engagement photo shoot and Alexis was simply AMAZING!!!! I was extremely happy with how everything turned out - she listened to what I wanted and did exactly that to a T. She made me feel so comfortable and easy to talk to! I wouldn't have changed one thing about my hair and makeup!! She did such a beautiful job. I can't rave enough about her!!
Alexis did hair & makeup for myself, my mom, and my bridesmaids for my wedding. She did an absolutely INCREDIBLE job, and was very easy and pleasant to work with along the way. I really liked my trial, but had a couple minor changes that I wanted for the day of. She was extremely receptive to my needs, and my hair and makeup looked absolutely perfect for the day of. I wouldn't have changed a thing! Her and her staff are extremely professional and had all equipment needed to carry out the timely and successful day. Thank you Alexis!!
Alexis and Monique are incredible. They came all the way to Palm Springs to help with my wedding because I wouldn't trust anyone else! They are dedicated, reliable, organized, and EXTREMELY talented. All of my friends and family were so impressed with their hair and make up and I was beyond thrilled! In fact, my sister is getting married in Hawaii and she loved her hair and make up so much that she took a bunch of photos so that they can try and replicate it there - that is how much she loved her look! Please use XO Beauty - they are amazing!
Alexis did my makeup and hair for my wedding and she is AMAZING! I am very particular when it comes to makeup and I have never found a makeup artist that I love until now. From the very begging when I had my trial Alexis was very attentive to what I wanted for my wedding day makeup and hair. Not only was she professional and dependable she is so sweet and so talented. She did such a beautiful job not only on my hair and makeup but also my mom and MIL's makeup. I highly recommend Alexis and XO. Thank you again Alexis for making this day so perfect.
I had the pleasure of Alexis coming to my home to do my hair and makeup for my engagement photoshoot. First of all- she is the sweetest and SO comfortable to be around/easy to talk to. I had never used a service like this so it's a little weird at first getting used to the idea of letting a stranger you've never met into your home, but she didn't make me feel like that at all! I felt so at ease with welcoming her, as well as her doing my hair and makeup in my living room, and we could truly talk about anything. Honestly, that makes a huge difference because you're spending a good amount of time with them while getting hair and makeup done. She's a beautiful soul and I'd recommend her to ANYONE.
Anyways, now to the service provided. I showed her inspiration pics of what kind of look I was going for. She executed my vision flawlessly. My hair and makeup was exactly what I'd pictured if not better and I felt so beautiful the whole evening as I took my engagement photos. These moments are so precious and every woman deserves to feel their best, and Alexis (& team) will most definitely help you achieve that. Would definitely 100% have her come over again for whatever event! How convenient you don't have to go anywhere, too. You can enjoy any day with ease.
