What Our Clients Are Saying...

  • "I am so happy that I found La Rouge to do bridal and bridesmaids hair for my wedding! They displayed the highest level of professionalism - communicated clearly, was responsive, showed up early - and did a fantastic job on everyone's hair. One of the bridesmaids chose to have her make-up done in addition to her hair and looked absolutely stunning! Rachel and Farrah listened well and made sure my hair was exactly how I wanted it. I loved my bridal up do! It stayed in place all night while looking and feeling natural and comfortable. It looked great in pictures too! Not only are the artists of La Rouge extremely talented and highly professional, but they are also delightful ladies to be around! So was their assistant, Ashleigh! They really helped set the stage for a relaxing and wonderful wedding day. I highly recommend La Rouge Artistry!"

  • "La Rouge was amazing to work with! All the ladies took care of my wedding hair and makeup and I was very pleased with the look. They also took care of my mom and three other girls...modesty aside, we all looked and felt really beautiful. We all got amazing comments on our looks. Two of us had a trial before the wedding, and then changed our ideas a bit, and our artist completely molded to our new desired looks. All the artists were a pleasure to work with, very punctual, friendly, fun, efficient, and focused on the ideal look that each of us wanted. Highly recommended!!!"

  • "Working with La Rouge Artistry was such a great experience. From the time I inquired about their rates and availability to the actual wedding day, they were so attentive and so involved. We had a large bridal party and the artists were so accommodating. Their work was amazing. The makeup and hair were so beautiful and more than I had expected. I highly recommend La Rouge artists for your wedding or any special event!"

  • "My fiancé' & I were planning on having engagement pictures taken in the Los Olivos area near Santa Barbara.  We were two weeks out from having the pictures taken and I found La Rouge Artistry on Yelp with very positive reviews.  I reached out & Rachel was very responsive on such short notice.  Since Rachel was already booked for the date in question, she set me up to have my hair & makeup done by Cheyenne, another artist. Cheyenne came to where I was staying and did a fantastic job.  I loved the air brushed makeup.  My hair & makeup came out just as I had wanted & I was so pleased with La Rouge Artistry's services!"

  • You and I have both probably seen many great hair artists work. Hair is usually complementary to the dress, but every so often it jumps out at you as a focal point and makes you say "Wow"! Rachel Perryman from La Rouge created a 1920's hair style on one of our brides that I still can't shake out of my mind - simply amazing!  It's the difference that stands out for me between 'doing someone's hair' to 'creating art'."

  • "3 Words: I love Rachel. She was/is amazing.  I must have emailed her every few weeks for 4 or 5 months leading up to my wedding.  I kept adding and changing things, and she was super flexible.  I ended up having 9 bridesmaids and both the mother of the groom and mother of the bride get hair and make-up done.  (Rachel, Cheyenne and Ashleigh were on-location) All my girls looked so beautiful! A few days before the wedding I had a hair and make-up trial with Rachel.  She started with lighter/more natural make-up and slowly built me up to the smoky shadow that I was going for - by not going super smoky super fast, I was able to let her know when I thought she had gotten it just right.  My mom came with me to the appointment too - she's really skeptical about other people doing her make-up, but she was so impressed by the way Rachel handled me, that by the end of the appointment my mom was all signed up for lashes and airbrush! I actually didn't cry at my wedding but I did sweat my butt off on the dance floor.  From first to last, my face looks put together in all of my pictures.  My bridesmaids had to touch up one or two bobby pins and re-spray my hair once (I had some aggressive huggers at my wedding who knocked the pins loose) but other than that, as soon as she pronounced me camera ready at 3:15, I stayed ready until I crawled into bed 9 hours later. I would recommend her to anyone who asked!  One of my bridesmaids is getting married in New Jersey in June, and she even asked Rachel how far she would travel.  Says a lot!"

  • "I cannot say enough good things about La Rouge and their styling skills! I hired La Rouge to do hair styling for my wedding (both my own and some of my bridesmaids), and I couldn't have asked for better results. I don't have the easiest hair to deal with, but the style I received for my wedding was absolutely gorgeous and lasted from 8am until midnight that night. Everyone kept commenting on it--simply stunning. The team also did a wonderful job with my bridal party--they looked absolutely incredible. And working with La Rouge was a pleasure--they are extremely professional but easy going and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Rachel and her team to anyone looking for a good stylist!"

  • " Rachel and Lea did my hair and make up for my wedding on 7/21/12 in Santa Barbara. I don't think I can say enough great things about them! Rachel is so dang cute and was a pleasure to work with. She responded quickly to all of my emails and it was very easy to communicate my needs/look for the wedding. I loved my makeup and hair even more than when we did it for the trial! It all came out so great!! My hair stayed in all night. Rachel and Lea are truly great at what they do!! Loved getting to know them and having them there on my special day. Couldn't have asked for two sweeter people to help me look my best! NO complaints here."

  • "La Rouge was wonderful to work with for my wedding weekend in July. I had found her name on Yelp and was planning my wedding in Santa Barbara from Boston, so it was a relief to have someone who was prompt with email and easy to communicate with from far away. Rachel came to my parents' place on Friday night and did a test run for me for the wedding the next day, then finished my hair off in a lovely little down-do for the rehearsal dinner - an extra bonus for me and a hair do that I absolutely loved. On Saturday morning, we had a LOT of ladies to work on between hair and make-up. With two moms, seven bridesmaids, and me, the La Rouge team of four stylists worked really quickly and very professionally. They really helped set the tone for the day. I did an up-do with a braid on each side, coming into a bun with a flower in back. Other girls had variations on that and down-dos as well. While I didn't have my make-up done by La Rouge Artistry, due to my cousin being a make-up artist and gifting me her services, I was really pleased with my hair and impressed it stayed in the entire night. The other ladies looked beautiful too. I think La Rouge artists are creative, driven, and kind and feel so lucky that I found such a good artists for my wedding!"

  • "After several attempts to locate a make-up artist (at the last minute) in the Santa Barbara area, I finally was connected to La Rouge Artistry.  I am so grateful that they were available to do my make-up for my 30th wedding anniversary event.  The artist's professionalism, warmth, and friendliness, made it very easy to trust her with my final look.  I felt and looked very glamorous; everything that I envisioned it to be.  I am very pleased and happy to refer La Rouge to others!"

  • "I was getting ready to attend the MTV Movie Awards and needed last minute hair and make-up. Not only was my artist extremely flexible, but she provided really wonderful, quality work. She listened to my needs, and went above and beyond my expectations! I wholeheartedly recommend La Rouge Artistry for ANY occasion--bridal, photo shoot or special event."

  • "La Rouge Artistry is very professional. The afternoon of my event they showed up on time and equipped with the best of everything needed to do my hair and make-up. All involved were calm, peaceful, and beyond pleasant which put me in a calm, peaceful, and pleasant mood. My artist knew the exact "up-do" to do on me in an effort to compliment my features. She also knew the exact make-up to put on me. I did not even have a consultation with them before my event, I simply communicated what I needed/wanted and she understood. I was made to feel beautiful! In what seemed like no time at all, she transformed me into an entirely different woman! I still looked like me, but she knew how to bring out the best in me in an effort to give me a new and classy look! My family and friends were full of compliments and curiosity as to who had done my hair and make-up. I have NEVER had so many people tell me how pretty I looked! And to the La Rouge team, making me look that way was just what they do...it seemed like a piece of cake to them. La Rouge team are are top-notch! My stylist’s talent is HUGE and her sweet personality just adds to the fun of getting yourself dolled up for a special event. I would HIGHLY recommend La Rouge Artistry."

  • ​"First & foremost I want to thank La Rouge Artistry for being a part of one of the most significant events in our lives. You were an absolute joy to work with & you turned me into a beautiful Bride. Rachel maintained opened communication with me. She would periodically check in to see how my wedding plans were going & whether I had new ideas, changes or concerns (we even discussed our precious children). She was readily available to answer my questions & always eased my nerves (she went beyond her call of duty). The day of my wedding the La Rouge team was on time, arrived to the venue before I did, & was prepared to go. Not once did I have to remind them of the Updo & makeup style I had chosen;  it was exactly what I had requested & envisioned (including the special little tweaks I had made).  My Mother's hair was also styled by the team & she looked ravishing. You can see it in their stride that the team felt confident. Their professionalism, talent & amazing disposition makes La Rouge Artistry my absolute favorite Hair & Makeup Company that I highly recommend!"

  • "If I had to describe La Rouge Artistry in one word, it would be... STYLE. The team took on the big job of hairstyling me and my army of bridesmaids for my wedding this past June.  From my four younger sisters ranging from ages 10-18, to me and my older bridesmaids, they did a fantastic job.  They were able to create a style for each one of us that made us feel comfortable and gorgeous, while also taking into mind what we had also envisioned.  They made sure that even months before the big day,  Each of the team had an idea of what each person wanted and on the big day, and their creativity and style shined.  I appreciate all the time and energy that was focused  by the team on each bridesmaid and I could not be more happier with the way everyone's hairstyles turned out.  The pictures are priceless, and I would recommend La Rouge Artistry to do hair for any occasion and any style."

  • "I can not begin to tell you how satisfied and impressed I am by La Rouge Artistry and all the team. They were absolutely wonderful to work with. The quality of their work was amazing. My hair and makeup was flawless. I got so many compliments and was so happy with how it all turned out. The entire experience was awesome. I will definitely work with La Rouge Artistry in the future."

  • "For one night of my life I felt like a movie star from the 1930's! Thanks to La Rouge Artistry. I had the most authentic and beautiful finger waves for an art deco themed charity gala. At the event someone said, "Several people tried to pull it off, but you are the only one here that has the REAL hairdo!" Rachel is truly an artist. My makeup was flawless; dramatic, yet tasteful and subtle at the same time. On top of all this, she was prompt, professional, and truly a joy to spend an afternoon with. I cannot recommend La Rouge highly enough. I hope that I, or my daughters, get the chance to work with La Rouge Artistry again for any grand event."
