Poonam was very prompt about the timings which is very essential in a wedding event. Her skills are undoubtedly very superior in terms of finesse, quality, speed. Best products are used and the makeup looked glamourous. Hair was done so beautifully that it stayed just the same way for the entire day. I got the perfect look for traditional Maharashtrian day wedding. Not just that but got complete assistance in draping the saree and lehenga from Poonam. I didn't have to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend Poonam for all the events where you want to look your best.

Poonam is extremely professional and on time! She did a wonderful job for me and my mom including perfect draping for our outfits. She has effective time management and her looks for us were sophisticated without being OTT, exactly what we were looking for.

I was very much like all the brides out there who spend a lot of time planning their Big Day. There was a big serve for me, though, because my wedding was in Pune, rather than in Mumbai where I grew up. As such. I had to find a make up artist from Pune instead. It was tough to decide which one to go for, but I was glad to have Poonam Lalwani as my makeup and hair stylist. Poonam is very passionate and dedicated to her work and is one the best stylists there is. I remember calling her to book an appointment, and we never looked back. My family loved her work, and we did not have second thoughts booking her for all the festivities. Being a bride,I had a million doubts and questions about my make-up looks for each day, and Poonam helped me answer each of them. She gives suggestions on ideas that will work specially for you. She considers the party theme, your dress, and even your jewelry when deciding what would make you look your best for your special day. I would strongly suggest Poonam for anyone who wants a sophisticated, kind, and dedicated stylist for your special day. I was very happy with her services, and I'm sure you will be too.

The makeup n hairdo was amazing n suited me so well. The Air brush make up lasted long. I don't really know much about makeup stuff but as compliments started pouring in , I was ensured that I was looking the best version of me and I could keep myself calm on my D-day! I would surely recommend Poonam as she's very professional and gives her best to make the bride look beautiful and elegant.

Poonam and her crew were our make up artists for 2 events – my wedding and reception. This was for me and 4 others. I was sooo happy with her services, I couldn’t have picked a better person. Living outside India, I had to go with my gut and others’ recommendations as I couldn’t do a trial before booking her services – absolutely no regrets, she would have been my top choice, even if I had gotten a trial and here’s why:- 1. She’s extremely punctual & professional. She was at my hotel at 3:30am (!) because we had to be ready by 6:30. And she was on time. She worked non-stop and had us all ready by 6. 2. Her trial is so very useful. I scheduled mine a week before my wedding. I went with a few of ideas, but talking to her about what I wanted, really helped. She will talk you through the trial, give you options. It’s a true trial, cos we tried a few different eye looks and lip colors to land on the final one. She was able to style my hair for both events as well. All this in under 2 hours! She’s a real pro. 3. She is brilliant with hair. She made a fishtail braid for me with extensions that matched my colored hair. She also added detailing like mini braids and twists on the top, just like I asked. I wasn’t able to describe it, but she got what I wanted. For my second event, I just let my hair loose and that was also perfectly styled. My hair lasted through the 8 hours that it had to, despite dancing and flowers weighing it down. 4. The make up really lasts – she gave me a trial of airbrush as well (which a lot of make up artists charge for during trial!). And my final make up lasted from 6am to 1pm like I needed it to! Despite all the fire and the flowers weighing down on my hair etc. 5. Your skin looks great! She got the skin tone right so you don’t look overly made up. My make up didn’t crack – 1 got airbrush for one event and the non-airbrush option for the other. Both lasted. My skin looked even toned, with perfect contours. And most importantly, it looked like me! She recommended the airbrush for the wedding so that the fire doesn’t affect it, and I would recommend going for that. She was right about it. 6. Price – she’s very reasonable compared to other make up artists of her caliber. 7. She won’t push her other services on you. She shared her pre-bridal packages with me, but given I didn’t stay close to her salon, she perfectly understood that I’d be getting that done elsewhere. No unnecessary upsell. 8. She takes others also seriously. My mom, sis and aunts also got their hair and make up done. They were all super happy with their looks. 9. She and her crew and very accommodating. Poonam also styled the groom’s hair, which I had requested for in advance. Her crew helped my grandmom with her hair and sari, without being asked, which was really very sweet.

Poonam is very passionate and dedicated to her work and it shows. Being a bride,I had a million doubts and questions about my make up looks for each day, and Poonam helped me answer each one of them. She was very patient and understanding and made sure I looked and felt my best on my wedding day. She discussed in details all my looks and ensured to give me exactly what i was comfortable with and she made me look my best. She is absolutely the best at make up and hairstyling and I felt blessed to have her dress me up for my D-day.

I was so skeptical of the makeup that will be applied on me on my wedding day that I always dreaded that my MUA will overdo it and make me look plastic. But Poonam Lalwani is a wizard! She was so nice, fun and considerate about the kind of looks I wanted for my D day. I loved the side ways messy hair with smokey eyes for my sangeet ceremony and I totally adored the wedding look! She nailed it and how! I received umpteen compliments and the cherry on the cake was my happy husband who had been super paranoid about how my makeup would turn out. He loved the way I looked ... I loved the way I looked as a bride... And I thank poonam for making feel on top of the world for those two days! She is extremely professional, punctual, understands your needs as a bride and makes you looks glamorous without making you look caked up! Poonam Lalwani you are awesome! Hiring you as my makeup and hair stylist was the best decision of my life! :)

I had too many thoughts in mind before finalizing the makeup artist every girl has that(Whom I should finalize )..I am fortunate that I choose Poonam for the big day,she did a great job.from eye makeup to hairstyle to drapping tall was perfect..Best part makeup looks better and better as time passes by and stayed for more than 12 hours,Its the best feeling for each girl when everyone compliments you.. Thank you Poonam...Also I would like to mention she is very professional and calm and very punctual ...best part of her is she concentrates on her work to make you look best and does not waste her time in any kind of gossip or chitchatting...Girls without any thought finalize her and she will make you look stunning on your big day.. The only feedback I have is ..Bindis for brides should be dark colored or red(as it suits all outfits) for good photos..

Poonam Lalwani is sooooo good. She listens to you and understands what you want to achieve and how. She works seamlessly with you and goes above and beyond your expectations because she just knows how to enhance your features, and what will complement your wedding day look. She will take time to study your features, give you options, and study your outfit too. She also uses stellar, high quality, high end products, and will never compromise on your look. She is the sweetest, most patient person I've worked with. I love her! You have to get her to do your events. She not only does your makeup and hair, but she'll drape your saree and lehenga and make you look the best version of you. She's awesome! If you're a bride, or have an event in Pune, go to Koregaon Park and look for her. You won't regret it at all. Love you Poonam!
