"I would DEFINITELY recommend Jai to anyone who is looking for a fashion forward, talented hair and makeup artist who LISTENS to what you want but also encourages you to think outside of the box. She is hilarious, has a killer sense of style, and we hit it off right away! I have used Jai for all of my major events - engagement party, bridal shower, multiple wedding events- and she has absolutely KILLED IT every single time. Weddings are extremely stressful, and other than being an amazingly talented hair and makeup artist, Jai also has an awesome presence and the best attitude. It was such a blessing having her around at such a stressful time. She makes you feel comfortable and at ease, and no matter what other stuff is falling apart around you, you know that your hair and makeup is going to be ON POINT, every single time. For an Indian bride especially, it can be really hard to differentiate between multiple events and make sure that your looks are different, but that you still look like yourself for each one of them. Jai is great at making sure she accomplishes the look you are going for, but that you don't go overboard or stay too understated.
I would recommend Jai to anyone and everyone. Pictures speak for themselves ladies- book this girl now!"
"Jai was fantastic! Right from the time I booked her she was always available to answer questions and provide advice. The first Sikh wedding I ever attended just happened to be my own, so Jai was an invaluable source of wisdom as to what to expect and what type of look would best suit the occasion. I could not have been happier with how my hair and makeup turned out. She turned me into a real life Indian princess without compromising my own personal style. Thank you, Jai, for making me look my best on my wedding day!"
"I can't speak more highly of Jai! She is just simply amazing. Not only is she exceptionally talented and skillful, she also has the best personality. My planner contacted Jai the night before my wedding and asked her to come in at 4am instead of 11am due to bad weather conditions. I was so worried that she couldn't make the last minute change, because I knew she had a full day of bookings. Jai gladly agreed to the change and never complained a word about it. She had to drive an hour in the middle of the night to get to banff at 4 am. She was a joy to work with. I felt like a million bucks on my wedding day. Thank you, Jai!"
"Jai was awesome to work with. She is kind, patient and talented. She did my make up for my engagement pictures, wedding day, and reception day. I have never felt so beautiful. I received many compliments that just made me feel so mushy inside. I told everyone it was the incredible talent of my make up/hair stylist Jai. Thanks for everything Jai! I'll be calling you in the future!!"
"You did an amazing job. Everyone commented on how great my hair and makeup - specifically those two!- looked. You made my skin glow and my lip colour looked soo good. I never really knew how to style my shorter-length hair and you made it look glamorous, while being short. I felt very comfortable with you and confident in your skills. So glad I chose you! Thank you for making me look va-va-voom!"
"Jai is an amazing artist! She will make sure you look and feel amazing on your big day. I highly recommend her for any event. She is professional and will truly go above and beyond for you. For my destination wedding in Mexico she nailed every look. The makeup and hair didn't even move with all that heat and humidity! Having her get me ready was a incredible experience!"
"If you want the best, Jai is the Artist you are looking for. She not only is a wonderful makeup artist, she is a wonderful woman inside and out. Jai has done my makeup a couple of times and it was flawless. I felt so beautiful. Jai is the best that I have seen. No other artist compares to her."
"Jai is a phenomenal artist. I am scared to let anyone do makeup on me because of bad past experiences, but Jai has an eye for beauty. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry everywhere else. My makeup stayed flawless ALL night even on my t-zone and it wasn't one bit cakey. My photos turned out amazing! Jai's super sweet personality was the cherry on top. I am so glad to have booked Jai because she's definitely the first artist I know I can always go back to, and fully trust. I highly recommend Jai for anyone looking for hair and makeup services. You will not be disappointed!!"
"Ladies of Calgary - if you need an artist for a special event, PLEASE go straight to The Studio by Jai Basi! She's amazing! My friend Jane and I were lucky enough to work with her and she is hilarious, yet professional and is a complete perfectionist. It's so rare to find anyone who values perfection and customer service anymore."
"We received many compliments because of you. Thank you for making us feel and look beautiful, it truly was an amazing day for all of us. Everything lasted all day as promised. All the messy frizzy hair and sweaty faces that we've experienced luckily weren't encountered this time, because of you! We loved how our makeup did not smear, smudge, or fade. Our looks at the beginning of the party, and at the end of the party were the same. Even through all the sweat and tears, we still looked amazing.Thank you so much for an amazing job! "
"It is clear that Jai has a true talent for makeup application. My make-up looked fabulous and I received a number of comments throughout the day. She takes her time with clients to understand their needs and ensures she is providing quality services. Jai provides her professional advice and guidance based on your look based on your outfit and occasion. My skin looked flawless and it was a natural enhancement of my current features.You will leave with a professional beautiful look that will last you all day. I would highly recommend her for any occasion."
"I booked Jai to do hair and makeup for 4 bridesmaids for our friends reception. Jai was an absolute delight to work with and she was so easy going. We showed her what we wanted and she was able to execute each look perfectly, by personalizing them to each girl. She was so professional and easy to talk to. The hair and makeup lasted literally all night long and we received endless compliments. We all truly enjoyed our experience with Jai and recommend her to anyone. If you're booking for a group, Jai is the one you want because she was so energetic and fun to be around. All of our looks were so different but Jai made each girl look and feel absolutely amazing. I will definitely be booking her again."
"Had a great experience using the Studio by Jai Basi. I contacted Jai to book her services for hair and makeup for a group of ladies during a wedding function and was impressed with her prompt response to my inquiry. She was also extremely friendly and professional which made me feel comfortable booking her. On the day of the event, I asked if we could start a little later and she was very accommodating. Furthermore, she did a fantastic job on each lady- all were very happy with her services!"
