Joette Catanzaro, Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist

REVIEWS

 

I felt beautiful on my wedding day!  Joette did a wonderful job on my bridal hair and makeup.  She has been a delight to work with.  I visited Joette at her charming little hair salon one month before my wedding to work on my hair and makeup trial.  Prior to my visit, we had several conversations by phone and email....being that I'm not from the Carmel-by-the-Sea area.  I had done extensive research before hiring Joette.  I have to be honest...her reasonable rates are what attracted me....after reviewing several of her work samples online, I was 50% convinced I was going to hire.  After speaking with her on the phone (on her night off), I was 100% convinced I was going to hire her.  Joette is very attentive to her client's needs.  She was very accomodating to several of my requests.  She aimed to please.  The bridal hair and makeup trial went well.  The hair and makeup on the actual day was even better!  If you are looking for bridal services in the Carmel area, I recommend Joette at the Salon at Lincoln Lane.  - Christine P.

 

I had my hair and makeup done at Salon at Lincoln Lane in Carmel by Joette Catanzaro.  I did all of the planning over the phone and via email with her and I could just tell by what she was asking etc... that she would be perfect for my hair and makeup.   She was absolutely amazing and I can honestly say that I would not change a thing.  She did everything I needed and gave some helpful ideas which ended up being better for both my hair and makeup in the end.  She was very patient with me and made me comfortable.  I could tell her concern was what was going to look best for my face and hair.  I am so very thankful I found her because I know some up-do hairstyles and wedding makeup can be disasters....... on that note I felt she did a great job with the makeup looking natural instead of caked on and white....... I was thrilled and got more compliments that day than ever.  Also the price was so reasonable - I was expecting it to be outrageous because we were in Carmel but it was fine.  - C. S.

 

I love Salon at Lincoln Lane!! And the owner Joette is the most professional hair and makeup artist. I drive down from the San Francisco bay area every four weeks to get my color done. I went from a brunette to a platinum blonde, in the past other salons found it difficult to achieve this drastic change without leaving me with a lot of red... She is the only person that has been able to get the color correct and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the end result. I would follow her anywhere!  Try Joette, you will not be disappointed, I promise... - Roxy P.

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."  In my case, I will not forget a single bit of my experience with Joette and what followed.  
I was chosen to model for the MC Magazine cover and centerfold in the July issue. I was set up with Joette for hair styling and make up.  The story was featureing these AMAZING vintage cars, one of them being a cherry red 1929 Ford Roadster (guestimated at $500,000). That being said, I was a little intimidated by my role. The goal was to look like as authenticly vintage as possible to suit the cars. Picture...Veronica Lake or a blonde Rita Hayworth... As you may know, the styling of that era is iconic so it was crucial to have a skilled stylist.
We had a few consulations via e-mail. A little worried, I showed up to my appointment early (my hair takes about an extra hour to style than the average head of hair). The salon is located in a charming little courtyard in Carmel.   Upon our arrival, Jovette kindly greeted my mom and I and offered us something to drink. She also showed us the moch styling she prepared on her mannequin. I was stunned! I was instantly put at ease knowing I was in the best hands for the job. She was right on time and made me look like a Leading Lady of the 1940s! The hair, the make up, the hair accesories, even the photos of the real vintage bombshells all over her walls totally inspired me. She made me feel great about myself and the Magazine was a huge success!

There were so many great memories made that day, and I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to meet Jovette. I absolutely recommend her if you want quality products, friendly conversation, and an over all great experience.  - Kimberly H.

 

Five members of my bridal party and I came to the Salon at Lincoln Lane for wedding hair and makeup.  Joette was the most professional person I encountered during the wedding process.  Her pricing was straightforward and all her correspondence was prompt.  Joette is fun and easy going.  The results were fantastic.  Everyone looked amazing and I have never felt so beautiful.  I rarely wear makeup and Joette made me feel like a model without being heavy handed.  I will never forget the way my husband looked at me; he was absolutely blown away.  Although she took great care in putting my look together, it was a tremendous relief to be ready early for the ceremony.  It is abundantly clear that Joette has the experience and the vision to make anyone feel like a million bucks.  The salon is also adorable and very fun place to hang out with a bridal party.  It made the day even more special.  Do yourself a favor and entrust Joette with your look for any special occasion.  - J.

Joette is FANTASTIC.  She did an amazing job on my bridal hair and makeup for my wedding.  I'm not from Carmel, so I was really nervous about finding someone great, and knew I had to do a little research.  When I called Joette, I was impressed with how much time she spent with me on the phone, and how pleasant she was to deal with.  She is very organized and wanted as much information as possible about myself and my bridesmaids.  We went to Carmel for a trial in March before the wedding and we spent all day there with Joette.  She really wanted to make sure that everything was perfect and how we would like it for the big day!  On the day of the wedding, Joette was on time and brought 2 great girls with her to take care of the bridesmaids and makeup while she focused on me and my mom and my mother in law.  We all looked so beautiful thanks to her.  I would recommend Joette to anyone.  - Mandy S.

Had a great experience at Salon at Lincoln Lane getting my bridal make-up and bridal hair done for my wedding.  I had my hair up in a low chignon and I had natural make-up with a few fake eye lashes for somethin' extra. My biggest concern for the day was for my hair to stay put and for my make-up to stay on -- both lasted beautifully. - A. K.

 

Joette and her team did an amazing job on the makeup and hair for my wedding! I initially was very nervous about who to go to in Monterey to have my hair and makeup done because I am not from the area! But my wedding planner Patty Speirs (Every Last Detail) highly recommended her. 

From the first time I met Joette I knew she was my kind of person w/ her two little dogs in her hair salon near Carmel by the Sea! I knew by the pictures on her website that I liked her work, but I still decided on going in and have a consultation with her just to make sure. I LOVED HER! To quality of hair products that she used to her construction of my hair-- she was truly an artist. She also applied a mineral base make-up that made my skin glow! In addition to having my hair and makeup done for the wedding I also had my bridesmaids, my mom, and my grandma get theirs done. Everyone looked amazing and I am so happy with the way my makeup and hair turned out in all of my pictures!

... As a side note the comb in my hair was from her shop and complimented all of my accessories very nicely!!  - Sarah M.

Joette did wedding hair and makeup for me, my mom, and my bridesmaids. Everyone looked very natural but polished. Prices were in line with the rest of Carmel by the Sea hair salons. 
- Christine C.

Joette, the owner, is the most attentive and professional make-up and hair artist you will ever meet. It is worth your time to visit her hair salon in Carmel-by-the-Sea. 
You will not be disappointed!

Joette--Many thanks again for my hair and make up it was exactly what I wanted!   - Lisa M.

 I visited Joette at her charming little hair salon in Carmel by the Sea one month before my wedding to work on my hair and make-up trial. Prior to my visit, we had several conversations by phone and email... being that I'm not from the Carmel area.

I had my hair and makeup done by Joette Catanzaro on the day of my wedding and it was absolutely perfect. I received so many compliments, and I would not have changed a thing. I spoke with Joette over the phone and knew right away just by the questions she was asking that she was the perfect one to make the appointment with. I am so very thankful to have worked with her because you always hear about the horrible up-do disasters and the caked on makeup... this was quite the opposite, I felt like I still looked like myself, very natural, but elegant and classic at the same time. Her prices were very reasonable and the overall experience and result was perfect. She catered to my needs and had ideas that ended up working better for me in the end! -

I would highly recommend Joette Catanzaro for wedding hair and makeup. There are many reasons... First the quality of hair and makeup was absolutely outstanding. I looked like a glamorous version of myself, not over done. Also, I felt like Joette really listened to my ideas and then enhanced them to be even better. Secondly, while I don’t necessarily go one price, I felt like her pricing was very competitive for hair salons in the Carmel by the Sea area and having her do my hair and make up was totally worth it (trust me, the pictures speak for themselves!) Along with her amazing skills, Joette is just a really great person with wonderful energy. Lastly, another cool part of my wedding hair and makeup experience was her hair salon. It’s super cute, right in downtown Carmel. It’s an intimate setting, so it was just my bridal party in there. - Nicole

I am a woman, wife, mother, and photographer. I recall the moment of stepping into the wedding dress, eagerly anticipating the moment when my groom first lays eyes on me. From each of these perspectives, Joette Catanzaro supports the vision. Joette has a gift for transforming her brides into beautiful maidens. I love her flexibility but also love her business style -- arrives early, collaborates with other vendors, and dresses the part. Joette's brides will never be disappointed, as she has class-act skills. - Heidi Morgan of Heidi Morgan Photography
