Monika and Jamie are AMAZING!! They did hair and makeup for my wedding and I could not have asked for a better team! Not only were they professional, they are EXTREMELY talented. They both made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world. I highly highly recommend! All my bridesmaids were equally happy and couldn’t stop talking about how impressive their work is and how beautiful they felt. I had some bridesmaids that wanted full makeup and some that wanted a natural look. Monika was so great at making both looks turn out beautifully!! I got compliments all day on the updo that Jamie did. I will definitely be hiring both these ladies again for future events! Thank you Monika and Jamie!

I did an online makeup tutorial with monika. she was wonderful in taking me through each step and informing me of each products purpose. it was worth the time and effort to get the right techniques and learn the correct shades for my skin. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in building their skills with makeup to do a tutorial with monika! Thank you monika for teaching me so much about makeup, I am truly grateful.

I had the pleasure of having Monika out to do makeup for my ladies and I on my wedding day recently in October. Monika travelled to Canmore without hesitation and was absolutely amazing to work with. Her work is gorgeous. I was the worst combination of indecisive bride with strong opinions and some insecurities, and Monika made me feel comfortable and beautiful on my day. All of my girls said the same thing. Not only did she make them all look flawless, she had fun with us, was patient and worked well past her allotted time, as more and more of my ladies decided to get makeup done on seeing her work. Our makeup looked amazing on the day, and we had so much fun, with even my mom getting into the mix and trying things she has never tried before. I am honestly so glad I found Monika! I wouldn’t have had it any other way!

Monika is AMAZING! I hired her for my wedding day for myself, 4 bridesmaids, mother of the bride and groom and our MC. Her attentiveness to detail and ability to make us all feel like princesses was truly amazing! I would HIGHLY recommend her for any occasion! She does not disappoint

Monika and Jamie did such a wonderful job with my wedding reception makeup and hair. I loved it so much and really wish I had booked them for my ceremony as well but I’m so glad they were able to book me in last minute for my reception as I was so disappointed with my makeup and hair for my ceremony by a different beauty group. Monica and Jamie literally saved my wedding and made me look so amazing on my wedding reception, so grateful they were able to book me in last minute and turn my wedding around and make me happy. I was so pleased with the way they made me look for my reception, it was perfect. Can’t wait to share the photos when they are ready!

Thank you Monika and Jamie <3

Jaime Rogo

Glam and Beyond did my hair and makeup (and my entire bridal party, Mom, and Step Mom). No exaggeration, Monika and Jamie are the best. We all looked and felt amazing for my wedding day. I won’t use anyone else but them for my hair and makeup from now on. If anyone needs to see pictures of my bridal pictures as a reference, let me know!

Thank you so much Glam and Beyond for making my wedding look a huge success! Glam and Beyond was super easy to work with from the beginning and were quick to reply to any questions or inquiries. Monika and Jamie were very personable and became part of the wedding! They took our inspiration and created an amazing outcome! We all received full hair and makeup (Bride and 2 bridal party)! It was fantastic for them to come our home, which made it a lovely and relaxing experience. Thank you for making our wedding beautiful!

Monika was absolutely brilliant! She did mine and three others makeup for my brothers wedding. We did not have to give her any direction, she knew what to do. Sign of a true expert in her field. We looked amazing, and received so many comments and gave her information out to others. Jamie did our hair and again, we had to give no direction, and it turned out stunning. It was the best hair and makeup we have received, and we have gone to a lot of places. I would highly recommend the both of them!

Monika and Jamie are amazig to say the least. They are both so fun and full of energy. They are also extremely talented and I am so glad to have found them. They are my go-to for hair and makeup for events from now on. My wedding party loved them and I am so grateful to have had them for my wedding. I have had hair and makeup done by them before so I was very confident come the wedding day!
In closing, book these ladies before it’s too late!

We all felt beautiful and the makeup looked just as good at the end of the night. They worked with each one of us to meet our individual wants in regards to the look we were going for.

Holly Elizabeth Rose Fillion 5 star If you’re in search of the perfect hair and make-up team, look no further. Jamie and Monika are truly amazing at what they do. I feel so blessed to have had them for my wedding in August and strongly recommend them to any and all who are looking for hair and make up.
These 2 lovely ladies, not only, stayed with us all morning doing hair/make-up for all my bridesmaids and my mother but they also took on a ton of last minute people. Very professional and excellent to work with. They helped to make the most nerve racking morning of my life into a fun and enjoyable experience.
So a huge thank you to Jamie and Monika. Words cannot express my gratitude. =)

Michelle Butler    They were so wonderful to work with! My bridesmaids and I looked amazing and everyone commented on how stunning we all looked. They were very personable and easy to talk to. Very professional as well… They will come highly recommended from me and my girls.

Lyndsey Rice- These ladies know their stuff! Not only are they amazing at what they do, but they make you feel so comfortable! I did both the trial and the wedding day with them, and I would’ve have changed a thing! My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted, and she even squeezed in my husbands, and stepsons hair without hesitation! You ladies made me feel like a beautiful bride, I couldn’t have asked for two better ladies to help us on our special day! Thank you so much Monika and Jamie!!

 Jessica Lovas   — 5 star

I have been using glam & beyond for 3 years when special occasions occur. Always on time, always flawless and so much fun. Highly recommend!!!

Cheyenne Medland — 5 star-  I just had my first appt with monika! All I can say is WOW!! I needed my makeup done for my Christmas staff party and I asked her advice on dresses and everything beforehand! After I picked my dress I showed up with a picture of a big glam look and she did EVEN BETTER then I was hoping! She was really good about changing the time of my appt and working with what I needed. Anyone who needs their makeup done – I HIGHLY recommend glam and beyond!!

Serena MoxleyI had the opportunity to work with Glam and Beyond for one of my latest photoshoots and the work Monika and Jamie did was stunning. I was looking for a specific look, and they researched the hell out of it (50’s Pin Up). I was amazed at the amount of attention they had to detail- and both or their efforts created a masterpiece! WHATEVER you need done- Glam and Beyond can do it! Not to mention they are so kind and give great tips on make up. Thank you!

Amanda PittmanI have been doing photoshoots for close to…. 10 years, both in front of the camera and behind it. I have shot From Alaska, to Tampa Florida, and Monika at Glam and Beyond is honestly one of best make up artists We have used. Her attention to detail and her desire for perfection are what make her one of the few WORTH while makeup artists in… What I can honestly say, North America!

Darrin Boust — 5 star Monika helped me with a Boudoir shoot I was doing to kick off adding the genre to my portfolio. She arrived early, was prepared, and knocked it out of the park. We did two very distinct looks for the same model, and I was a very happy camper. She knows her craft well, I can’t recommend anyone higher. If you hire her, you’ll be glad you did!

Michèle Wienecke — 5 star Monika is a phenomenal make-up artist! She assesses your face shape, bone structure, skin tone, the placement of your features and uses her skills to highlight your strengths and cover your weaknesses. Her knowledge is incredible. As well she is so easy to work with and just a lovely human being. I had a great experience with her!

Katherine KoleckiExperienced the royal treatment every time. Monika and Jamie and both very experienced and know what’s trending for beauty. They show lots of care for the client and make sure their supplies are clean and used properly. I would recommend their services to anyone in need of make up advice as well as a stellar look for special events and photoshoots.

Sage CharbonneauWonderful woman. Such an amazing artist and always gets the look better than spot on. She makes you feel very comfortable. Does her work quickly and beautifully.
