Alex and her assistant were amazing! Alex of course did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup! She convinced me to do my makeup. She listened to how I wanted it and it turned out perfect! Alex & her assistant also did my sister-in-law, my mother & the groom's mother's hair! They made everyone feel special for the Big Day! It was just fun to hang out with them! Would recommend Studio 89 for a wedding as well as any special event! - The

I own a Wedding and Event Management Company, Blue Sky Events, in Lake Tahoe and have worked with Alex Gonzalez with Studio 89 for 10 years. I highly recommend her to all my clients. First and foremost, she is professional, personable, and really great at what she does. Her hair design and make up artistry is always cutting edge, as she often takes trips to LA for seminars and exhibits. On-site during the wedding day, she and her team are 100% on time. We work together to create a timeline for the hair and make up schedule and even with the largest groups of bridesmaids, bride, and MOB's, she always follows through in a timely manner, while assisting to keep the bride calm, relaxed, and looking beautiful! She keeps our brides very happy with little extras and continuously going above and beyond. We love working with Alex and I know you will too!

I wanted to thank Studio 89 for the wonderful job they did on my hair for my wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out. Even Kevin's uncle, who never gives compliments, complimented me on how beautiful I was and how great my hair looked!

Just wanted to say, thanks again to Studio 89 for making my mom & I “beautiful” for my wedding on July 18th. You did an incredible job on the both of us & the look you gave me was exactly what I had envisioned! The hair & makeup worked perfectly with my dress. I got many compliments ( so did my mom).
