Client Testimonials

“Absolutely one of the best hair & make up artists in the industry! I know I am in amazing hands every time I work with Two Chicks! I would highly recommend them!”


“I am a “regular” loyal client of Two Chicks and Some Lipstick for my hair and makeup (and even styling!). Whether it be preparing for a photoshoot, a competition, or a special event, they always make me look my best. Lori and Val are not only extremely talented, they are professional, knowledgeable, and so easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Two Chicks and Some Lipstick to anyone looking for the best in hair and makeup, no matter what the occasion is!”


“I’ve worked with a lot of makeup artists and I can say that between the work they have done with me and all of the stunning transformations, these women are truly the best at pulling out your unique look through their art and eye for what enhances your natural beauty. It’s not just about the makeup with them…it’s about empowering you to rock your confidence and create a perfect day and experience that allows your light to come through for whatever your special event is. This is empowered women, empowering women through their gifts – what could be better?!”


“The best part about Lori and Val is not their insane creativity and talent, its their energy and passion to make you “feel” the part of a BEAUTIFUL woman, inside and out. I call myself a transformation coach, but they should be called “transformation technicians” with their brushes being their magic wands. They have a unique ability to enhance your natural features and highlight your best traits, without turning your face into a mask. I will never forget my first shoot with them; the time spent in their chair pre-shoot, was a confidence booster for the camera. They are approachable, knowledgeable and full of ego-boosting capabilities!!! I don’t think I can say enough about these two. I love their work so much, that I hired (Val) to come to Spain with me for my last international show. Thank you two for your dedication to your art and women in general.”
