Rhonda Johnson Makeup & Hair


What Central Coast Brides Say About Rhonda ...

"Rhonda was absolutely the best and I'm so glad I found her!!! I love makeup but there was no way I was doing my own for the wedding. I was worried about hiring someone because I've had bad experiences in the past with MUAs just not understanding what I wanted. After talking to Rhonda though, I knew she'd be amazing!!! She helped me put together a team of her favorite assistants for the bridesmaids and mothers, and put together a detailed schedule for day of. The trial was great and she listened closely to the few comments and concerns I had. Day of, she arrived early and her relaxed and professional attitude really put everyone at ease! She's an absolute master and my hair and makeup came out even better than the trial. Both our mothers were nervous because they had never had their makeup professionally done before, but she made them look so glamorous. Everyone looks naturally flawless in the photos, and it lasted ALL NIGHT LONG!!! I'm not sure what magic she uses, but we all seriously looked the same at the end of the night as when it was freshly applied. I'd hire Rhonda again in a second, wish I had more occasions to get professionally made up."

"Rhonda has true talent! I have never gotten my makeup done, I dont wear much makeup and was a little nervous since I wasn't doing a trial run since it was a destination wedding. We had a very small intimate ceremony, even though it was small she made me feel so special! When it was time to get into my dress my mom, daughter and I were the only ones there she stopped doing my daughter's hair and took a few pictures of my mom getting into my dress just so I could have pictures of that moment! I was super thankful that I choose Rhonda, she truly made me feel so special!"

Carrie-Ann, Sept 2017

"Where do I even begin?! From the moment I first spoke to Rhonda to get a quote for my wedding after seeing her work, I already knew she was the perfect fit for me. She was so friendly right from the start and made me feel so excited about my big day! I had so much fun the first time I actually met Rhonda, which was the day of my engagement photo shoot. She was professional yet felt like a lifelong friend. She made me feel like the best version of myself and didn't try to change my look. I felt completely natural but enhanced! Her talent really showed in our photos. We continued to keep in touch for the next several months up until my wedding day. She was always so responsive and was so helpful in determining a plan for my wedding day look. On the big day, I had absolutely no worries that anything would go wrong with my hair or makeup like you sometimes hear about. I completely trusted her and knew I was in good hands. She made my bridal party and our mothers feel so beautiful and she made me feel like a princess on my special day. I am so incredibly thankful to have found Rhonda. To say she is talented is an understatement!"

Taryn, Sept 2017

"Rhonda was more than you would ever expect out of a hair and makeup artist. She not only made myself and bridesmaids look flawless she is just overall an amazing person. We had a few wardrobe malfunctions and Rhonda jumped right in and started pinning dresses. She has been doing this for so long that she has a solution for everything. She kept me super calm the morning of the big day and was a true blessing. She may have been "behind the scenes" but played an integral role of our wedding day. You won't regret hiring Rhonda. "

Kari, July 2017

"Rhonda was absolutely AMAZING! She did my hair & makeup for my wedding at Ragged point inn and highly recommend her! I was very worried about finding a great, solid hair/makeup artist in the central coast/big sur area - especially for asian makeup. She knows how to transform you into a beautiful bride! She does awesome air-brush makeup so everything looked more natural on my skin, none of the heavy or cakey stuff. The best part was that I wanted some more volume with my hair curled and she got these beautiful hair extensions that worked SO well with my hair, no one could ever tell! After our make-up trial, she would take very detailed notes on what we did/what didn't work etc. Rhonda is extremely patient and quite funny to work with and will keep you calm on your day of! Book her now!"

Camille, May 2017

"Rhonda is absolutely wonderful! I called Rhonda after stumbling upon her site and as luck would have it, she was free the weekend of my wedding. During the trail run, I thought I wanted my hair to be down, but later decided otherwise. Since I live in San Francisco and was unable to come back down before the big day, I sent her pictures and ideas of what I wanted and what she came up with was just perfect. It went so well with my dress, the style and theme of the wedding and reflected my personality. My makeup was perfect too - it stayed on all night and looked great in pictures. Thank you, Rhonda, for your great work!"

Joanne, Aug 2016

"Rhonda was absolutely the best choice I could have made and I have never looked and felt more beautiful than on my wedding day. She uses the best products and my hair and make-up lasted through the day (at over 100 degrees on a hot August day) and evening. The beautiful details show in every picture and from every angle. Thank you again so much Rhonda!"

Lieve, Aug 2016

"Rhonda is AMAZING! She went above and beyond to make my wedding day absolutely perfect. She made me feel comfortable and look beautiful, I couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

Renee, June 2016

"Book her in advance! I was lucky enough to be able to secure Rhonda for my date, but I know it was a close one! Everything turned out perfect - hair, makeup, etc. And she is so much fun to work with! Super cool, laid back, flexible... if we lived closer to each other I would book her for all big events I attend!"

Ashley, Sept 2016

"Rhonda was awesome! She knew exactly what I wanted and did just that. I showed her a couple pictures and she nailed it completely!! I was really nervous to have someone do my makeup and hair due to past experiences. She was so nice and actually pretty entertaining. No regrets booking her! Her prices are great, too!"

Kelly, Sept 2016

"My experience with Rhonda Johnson was absolutely wonderful. My bridesmaids and I were totally impressed with her work. They looked gorgeous yet not overly done up. And she did an amazing job with my look...even without a trial run! So happy I was able to work with her!!"

Angelica, Oct 2016

"I truly feel SO blessed to have had the privilege of having Rhonda do my hair and make-up for my wedding. I never wear make-up so I didn't really know what I wanted, but I showed her some pictures I liked and she worked her magic! She made my make-up look so natural, but at the same time she made me feel more glamorous than I have ever felt in my entire life. I would highly recommend her services, she is amazing at what she does!"

Jenna, Dec 2016

"I found Rhonda very early in my wedding planning process. She was the first and most important vendor I booked after setting my date. She is so talented and good at what she does. It’s so important to find someone who knows what they’re doing. Trust me...Rhonda knows!"

Lihn, October 2015

"Rhonda was great and I would highly recommend to any bride. She listened to what I wanted and I was thrilled with the results; natural but beautiful! On the day of my wedding, she arrived right on time and got to work. She's so easy going and fun to talk to that I couldn't believe 3 hours had gone by and it was time to go!"

Michelle, September 2014

"Rhonda was a joy to work with. I had a destination wedding in Paso Robles, CA and was not able to meet her in advance or do a trial run. Her responsiveness was reassuring and I thought her portfolio of work showed great talent. I had some changes to my wedding venue that she accommodated without any issues."

Katie, August 2014

Kim, October 2013

Suzy, September 2013

"Rhonda is wonderful! She produced the exact look and made me look better than I could have imagined on my wedding day! My hair stayed put and looked great all day.

Hayley, September 2013

She was 100% professional-showed up early, had the photos of my trial as a guide, had all the best equipment and supplies and was extremely vigilant about hygiene.

Talia, Santa Margarita Ranch, 2011

"Rhonda did my hair and makeup for both my engagement shoot and my wedding. I am SO happy that she did because she made me look amazing! What I liked the most was that I still looked like myself (not overly done-up or fake)...but Rhonda made me an enhanced and more amazing version of myself. :-) She is very knowledgeable...I felt completely comfortable and confident with her. The wedding pictures came out beautiful thanks to her expertise...the close-ups are a testament to her skills. She is very friendly and professional, a joy to be with while getting ready for one of the most important moments of your life! She was also a TREMENDOUS help to me on the wedding day...putting out small fires, like when my sister accidentally got lipstick on the front of my wedding dress! Rhonda came to the rescue and when I walked down the aisle, I knew I looked my very best. Thank you, Rhonda!!!"

Nicole, Thacher Winery, 2011

"Rhonda was amazing- she did an incredible job on our makeup and hair. I am from out of town and was very nervous. I knew after my trial that I had nothing to worry about. You can tell Rhonda is a perfectionist and she does such an amazing job! She went above and beyond and would HIGHLY recommend her!!"

Laura, Eagle Caslte Winery, 2011

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Rhonda! I looked amazing on my wedding day because of Rhonda's enormously talented skills. She took care of me and my maid of honor and we had so much fun spending time with her. She was so flexible and attentive during the entire process. As a Chinese American female, I sometimes get worried that makeup artists/hairstylists do not understand our skin tone and features. But Rhonda is truly gifted in working with all different types of women. I am so grateful for Rhonda's help and support on my special day! Thank you!"

My mom and my girlfriends thought that we knew each other personally! You were that easy to talk to! Thanks for making me look exactly how I've always pictured on my wedding day!"
