I did my trial with Roma about a month ago and I was so happy with the way that I looked. I really looked like a celebrity. Roma is so personable and very accomadating. She asked me what I wanted and she also told me her suggestions. She asked me what I thought and if there was anything I wanted to change. She listened to everything I had to say. She is so nice and sweet. She fits so well with my wedding party. I love her energy and I am so glad she is doing my makeup for my wedding. I am very at ease with my decision and that is one thing I don't have to worry about for my wedding day.

Roma was phenomenal... she took wonderful care of myself, my five bridesmaids, my mom and even my dad at the time who was going through a mid-life crisis and had really long hair and she made him look like he had short hair for the wedding (phew)... She did all of our hair and make-up and everything looked flawless... and this was before air brushing. My make-up and hair stayed all day and it didn't look over done, it was just what I wanted.
Thanks Roma you helped make our day go off without a hitch!

I dont wear a lot of makeup, I'm so so with my hair and had no idea what would look good but I knew I didnt want to look to over done but yet not to under done,, but WOW! I loved the airbrush makeup,,it stayed all night and my skin actually looked better as the night went on. I was worried that my hair wouldnt stay but again I was wow'd. Roma is as professional as they come, very talented and such a pleasure work with .

I live in CT and had a destination wedding in Miami Florida. I was referred to Roma by a friend and from the begining she was extremely professional, easy going, personable and knowlegeable. While I was stressing out about all the other details with the wedding, I was confident and not stressed at all about my hair and makeup. During the months before the wedding she took the time to get to know what look and style I was going for and offered suggestions but was not overbearing. She was easy to get a hold of and responded quickly. On the big day, it was hot and humid but my makeup and hair stayed flawless. Throughout the day she kept checking up on me to make sure everything was perfect and if I wanted any changes. My maid-of-honor made a couple of changes and she jumped right on it without any attitdue or fuss which in my opinion is key because we all felt comfortable enough to tell her if we wanted to tweak something. She was amazing!!! I absolutely loved the way my party and I looked. I highly reccomend her!!!!

Roma brought Magic to my wedding day! She did my hair and makeup and I LOVED it! I was so worried about everything as I am such a perfectionist. Well, I had nothing to worry about. She calmed my neves easily. She was a little early which was good. She used the best products on me and I looked luminous. She listened to what I wanted. I am very specific and can be demanding but that didn't even faze her! In fact she was super patient and did what she had to do to make me Love my look! She also did my sister's hair and makeup. She looked gorgeous too. Roma is a true professional yet also a kindhearted and friendly. She' the Best!!! Highly recommended! Absolutely LOVED her- she's Magical!

I got married 3 weeks ago and used Roma for the hair and make up. She was prompt, prepared and had a great sense of humor which made her fit right in with my bridesmaids and mom.
Roma is very easy going, takes her time and makes sure you are happy. One of my bridesmaids wanted to make a small change to her hair and Roma did it without a fuss. My mom looked fabulous and got nothing but compliments! Things went very smoothly and my make up stayed all night! I had many hairstyles that I liked and was undecided so Roma took the time to help me figure out what was best for me.
I did the trial with her and I highly recommend doing this. She is full of advice and tips in helping you look your best!
If you're looking for someone who has the experience and personality it takes to work with brides....Roma is it!

I would to thank you for doing such an amazing job and making me so beautiful on my wedding day, you are the most talented and patient stylist that i had a luck to meet. I have gone to a lot of places in Florida, trials after trials after trials, i was so disappointed that no one was able to understand what i really wanted... until i finaly found you and it was just amazing how you pictured in details what i was talking about and what exactly i was looking for. Weeding day, i think, is one of the most important days for every bride, and for being such a picky bride i have to say that everything you did was just truly amazing.
Thank you again for your doing such a terrific!!!

I met with Roma before my big day and she was on time and extremely patient. I was so unprepared and had no idea how I wanted my makeup or hair done! Roma explained different ideas for me and even helped me go through photos in some of my magazines to get an idea of what I like. After I picked out a few, she knew exactly what she was going to do for me. The first try was a go! I felt like I was doing this all with a close friend, Roma is extremely personable. When my big day arrived, not only were people awe-struck when they saw how beautiful I looked, but Roma also has such a zen-like aura about her and managed to keep us calm, including my mother- who was about to burst with nervous excitement. My mother looked stunning (thanks, Roma!) and I could not think of ONE negative thing to say about Roma's skills or her work ethic. No wonder she gets so much work in the film industry! The only bad thing was- we couldn't keep her. ; )

This past Monday, I gave Roma a deposit for my wedding. On Tuesday, I called her to introduce myself, since we hadn’t had any previous interaction. She didn’t return my call until Friday, which wouldn’t have been a big deal except for the following: Things immediately got off to a rocky start when she called me by the wrong name. I dismissed this. No big deal. Next, she confirmed the wrong wedding date…. THREE TIMES, twice after being told the correct date. Still, I gave her the benefit of the doubt and tried engaging her in conversation. Unfortunately, she was uninterested in getting to know me. She proceeded to tell me that she was “busy doing television and film projects” and might need me “to be flexible” with my schedule. Now I had a sinking feeling in my stomach. Would she get the dates wrong that week? Would she be as dismissive and unprofessional on my big day? I had paid a $50 deposit through her website (which never asked for my wedding date), so technically speaking she didn’t have my wedding date written down. And certainly no contract had been signed. To sum it up, she was as unprofessional as they get. One’s wedding day is a pretty big deal. Unfortunately, she made me feel like just another nameless, faceless person she had to put up with between the film/tv jobs she’d rather be doing. After this call, my mother sent her a note asking for a refund on the deposit. This is the response we received from Roma. (I didn’t bother correcting her grammatical/spelling errors. This is directly copy and pasted.)
ROMA’S E-MAIL TO MY MOTHER: “Yes I definitly understand about personalitys meshing and based on your email we would absoulty not be a good fit. I interview my brides just as equally as I am interviewed. As far as not knowing her name,,her message was interupted and/or she mumbled her name on my voicemail which I can play back for you since I still have it on my voicemail so I wasnt clear on who she was. As our conversation continued, I realized that you had been the one in contact with me per emails,,,As i mentioned I am working on a feature film and have a lot going on during the weeks and my main concern was to get back to her asap. In terms of $50.00,,,it States cleary that it is non-refundable on my website. Ive unblocked the 12th. Good Luck.”
(For the record, I never “interviewed” her. I asked how week was going. Unfortunately, she didn’t do the same and apparently considers that an interview.)
Consider yourself warned. She's unprofessional.

I had a tricky situation for my wedding because I was getting married in south florida but live in nyc. I had a hair and makeup trial in florida while on vacation that i just didn't love - but didn't know how i was going to find another person to do a trial since i didn't plan to be back in florida until the wedding. Roma stayed in touch with me and let me know when she was going to be in the city and squeezed me in for a trial between various tv shows she was working on. She only had to do my hair and makeup once during the trial and i was sold! She offered to try different styles, but i loved what she did the first time so just went with it. Everyone is still telling me how beautiful I looked at my wedding. Roma has a great personality and is fun and easy to work with. I don't normally wear a lot of makeup and somehow she made it seem as if I was hardly wearing any makeup on my wedding day making everyone think I was naturally that pretty :) I don't know how I found her, but am so happy that I did. I hope that I have another occasion in the future in which I can use her as I loved my look so much that I can't wait to look like I did on my wedding day again. I wish she could move in with me and do my hair and makeup every day hahaha. Definitely, DEFINITELY consider her for your wedding or any other occasion - she is sure to make you look beautiful. Thank you, Roma!

I normally have difficulty picking a good makeup artist who can work with my eye shape since I am Asian, but Roma far exceeded my expectations! She was easygoing, flexible, and very relaxed even on the day of where most brides are stressing. I would highly recommend Roma because I got many compliments of my hair and makeup, she made me look beautiful on my wedding day! Don't worry, just tell her what you want and she will deliver!

Roma was awesome to work with. She was very professional and has a great calming personality. She could sense me getting nervous while she was doing my hair and make up and she was great at trying to distract me and make me at ease. And the pictures came out amazing!! Roma really knows what she is doing and is a lot of fun. She did my maid of honor's and my officiant's (who is also my best friend) hair and make up as well and it was soooo much fun. Thanks so much Roma for making my day so special.

Roma did my hair and makeup for my wedding day, and it was everything I wanted and more. I felt like a model! Not only was she fun to work with, but she was the most affordable hair and makeup artist I could find for myself and for my bridesmaids. I would recommend her to ANYBODY getting married in South Florida!!!! She was amazing!

I can't thank Roma enough for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day! Roma is extremely professional and an amazing makeup artist. I did a trail run of my hair and makeup and Roma called several times to check on me and to make sure I loved my hair and makeup. She listened to me and everything I wanted. I am so pleased with everything Roma did for me and my family. I would highly recommend Roma for your "Big" day. She is the best!

Roma did the most wonderful job on my hair and makeup for my wedding this past summer. I never like when I get my makeup professionally done, but I LOVED Roma's work. I didn't worry about my hair or makeup the entire wedding, no touch ups needed! She's also very nice to have around, very nice and low stress!!! She was also very flexible with the trials and details...I'd recommend her 100 percent!

Roma Demartino came highly recommended to me by a bridesmaid she had previously done in another wedding.My Friend (the bridesmaid) told me that Roma made the bride look phenomenal when she got married and was lucky enough to have her do her hair as well because it was such a small bridal party. I was so impressed with her reliability first and foremost! But Roma's professionalism is what stood out the most and when I got to the day of I was really blown away at how Perfect my pictures came out . Like they were touched up! She is always my first recommendation to friends , family and any woman who needs an awesome stylist or makeup artist for any occasion!
