Lizy talks about her Experience with Sharon Rai

February 29, 2012
“When I heard I was working with Sharon Rai Hair and Makeup Artistry, I immediately went through her website looking at her pictures of the amazing looks she created for women.  The complete transformation of their most important days demonstrated not only her talent, but the care she gave to each client, ensuring that the personal touch she gave was above what any woman could expect.
My entire life I have looked the same. Parted my hair the same way, put on the same type of makeup, looked the same in every picture that I dressed up in.  When Sharon Rai took me into her studio and into her care, she transformed me into a woman I didn’t recognize!  I never knew that I could look so radiant and beautiful, in ways I never expected or thought of.  Her fresh approach to her styling my hair and the AMAZING job of my makeup gave me a brand new look, surprised not only myself and my husband, but my family, loved ones and friends.
The entire afternoon was about being pampered.  We enjoyed the lovely selection of fine appetizers and refreshments in the comfort of her studio.  As I had chosen her to stylize both myself and my husband for our photo shoot, I didn’t have to worry about a single thing.  It was a stress free afternoon, relaxing in her good company, trusting that she was doing a far better job than I could ever hope to do.  My husband and I enjoyed our afternoon without worrying about a time schedule, trying to fit in lunch, worrying about if my makeup was done right or if my hair was out of control or flattering.  I’d choose Sharon Rai for every special day!
When considering a styling team for your big day, or any day that you deserve to be taken care of, please consider Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry. Her stellar talent for transformation is met with her kind hospitality, enjoyable company and dedication to creating the perfect look for you on that day.  Don’t forget that a special day can be more than a wedding, graduation or other major event!
Thanks for making me look so amazing ♥”

SR Bride Wedding Day Hairstyle – Victoria BC Bridal Hairstylist

January 4, 2012


Just want to remind you of how appreciative I am to have had you a part of my wedding experience.  I had only had my hair done for an occasion once, 9 years ago, and it was awful.  Im truly not exaggerating, it was my sister’s wedding and I couldn’t stop thinking, at the time, how much I hated how I looked.  I didn’t say anything because it was her day and I didn’t want to take that away from her by complaining, so I sucked it up and looked ridiculous, but what a different experience I had this time.  I just felt so amazing the day of my engagement shoot, and my wedding day and its all because of YOU!
Thanks again, Im so grateful!

“My wedding hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted” – The Royal Victoria Yacht Club Bride

November 22, 2011
“My wedding was Magical, it was everything we had wanted and more… Everything came together so nicely, My bridal party and I really enjoyed getting ready with the SR Team in the morning.  We had them come on-location, it made it that much more exciting and memorable, it was really a stress-free day.  My bridesmaids and I even had a chance to have a margarita each that morning cause we were all soo relaxed.  I could never imagine having to get ready on our own, that would just have been a mess of grumpy girls not happy with their hair or rushing out the door with just lipstick on our lips.

Your team was great!  Having an artist follow us between the ceremony and reception, was really worth it, we all looked great in our pictures, and timing wise it would have been impossible to fit in touchups and doing photos in such a small window of time.  I really loved all the girls looks, they all looked very classic.  My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted, thanks to you and our wedding day preview, and the fact that I got to see how I was going to look like in person and in camera, thank you for letting me evolve the look right before the wedding.  My hair stayed in perfectly, all day, and all night, until around midnight (but I think me being a dancing fool had alot to do with the little pieces coming out).  I was really pleased with Sharon and her team and will recommend them to my friends, I will also probably see Sharon again, for another milestone in my life!”

Vancouver Bride, married at the Laurel Point in Victoria BC

September 7, 2011

The Sharon Rai Hair & Makeup Artistry Team had the pleasure of working with Sabrina and her bridal party.  We arrived on-location to stylize the party in their suite at the Inn at Laurel Point, where the wedding was taking place!

Sabrina was a very easy going bride, and her family & friends were great to work with.  We created a half up, half down hairstyle, with her beautiful thick dark hair.  With makeup we went with a bold lip, defined liner, and kept everything natural & flawless.

It was great running into Sabrina’s Wedding Photographer, Karen McNeil & Courtney Clarke, always a pleasure working with local talent!

Congratulations Sabrina & Scott, wishing you all the best!
