Questions and Answers

What 3 words describe your work?

Timeless, elegant, classic.

Tell us about your company name.

Triple Twist is named after Mei's Cirque du Soleil trapeze act that featured her flying triple twist at 25 feet in the air. You can see her famous triple twist featured in Cirque du Soleil's Emmy-winning 2000 production, Dralion.

Why should someone hire you?

We have truly reinvented bridal makeup and hair design and focus exclusively on weddings. Our bridal trials are stress-free, one-on-one sessions at our exclusive studio in Union Square where your bridal trial photos are taken with professional camera and lighting equipment—ensuring you see clear photos of your makeup and hair design at all angles before your big day. We offer palette-mixed, custom foundations that match all skin tones and guarantee that your wedding makeup and hair designs will last all day. Investing in professional hair and makeup will ensure that you look stunning in person and timeless in your wedding photos.

What are the common misconceptions about your services?

Occasionally brides bring in photos of celebrity looks, thinking if they hire a professional artist they will achieve the same look. Because everyone has different features, hair lengths, and hair types, there are situations when this can be a challenge.

The great thing about working with Mei is that she interprets your desired look and either matches it, or will customize a stylistically similar look that makes you feel beautiful, confident and comfortable.

What is the best advice you give to a couple when planning their wedding?

The fastest and most effective way to get to know if a vendor is right for you is to pick up the phone and call them. Do they reply promptly? Are they sincere and helpful? Can they quickly provide you with more information? Do they have an excellent, updated portfolio? Do they have an office or studio where you can meet for a consultation? Review sites are wonderful, but you will learn a lot from a three-minute phone call.

What are 3 words that describe your personality?

Genuine, honest, warm.

Bride Reviews

“I loved that Mei had strong capabilities in both hair and makeup and that I didn’t have to sacrifice on either to receive both services from the same professional.”

“My makeup lasted through the tears, kissing, and dancing. My hair stayed curled the entire night—something it usually doesn’t do!”

“I really appreciated having the photographs taken after the trial and being able to see how the makeup would look in the pictures.”

“My makeup was exquisite, unlike anything I have ever done or had done for myself. Flawless, glowing, and natural.”

“They use high quality makeup and are concerned with hygiene and cleanliness.”

“Mei even gave each of us a powder puff with the powder that she mixed for each person’s specific skin tone to freshen up throughout the evening.”

“Mei is a great artist, pays attention to every detail, and will make any bride look lovely.”

“I would recommend Mei not only because of her abilities, but also because I enjoyed her as a person.”

“Robert, Mei’s husband, was the main contact when it came to the logistics. He was extremely well organized, responsive and conscientious.”
