Celebrities, Clients and Friends

Aloha Brides, Clients and Friends,

I wanted to take this time to show my gratitude and appreciation for each person that has opened up their hearts and sharing their personal thoughts, which will be invaluable to me. I’m overwhelmed that you took the chance and chose MauiMiRa to be a part of your Spectacular Day and for other Special Events. It warms my heart that you also took the time to write online, email me, send cards, give gifts, extra … showing the love and praise. This only compels me to put more dedication into making everyone’s experience unique, and to encourage me to strive to satisfy every time.

I love you all for being so supportive and to seeing me through. Thank You again!

MiRa Carman

Thanx for making me look fabulous!

…a dream to work with!

“We went with Mira-Mira and she has been a dream to work with. She is very sweet and on top of things, and she genuinely seems excited about our wedding. She does a great job of getting me to describe my vision and then she runs with it and comes back with concrete ideas for me. She has done all the coordination with my vendors, which has made it really easy for me. We make the choices and she makes it happen. Although our engagement is pretty short, none of it has felt rushed. From my experience so far, I would highly recommend her.”   The Knot →

Hair and Make-Up – Mira – A+

Mira did a great job on my hair and make-up and the hair for my bridesmaids and mum (her assistant did the make-up for the bridesmaids and my mum). I was really pleased with how everyone’s look turned out – all the make-up was soft and natural and the skin flawless and even by the end of the night (and after lots and lots of champagne) everyone looked great and in tact. Also the make-up looks fantastic in all the photos as well. I had done a trial with Mira the week before so that also helped in deciding what to do on the day and I’m really glad she recommended some small false eyelashes as although I was sceptical they did make a big difference and weren’t obvious like I’d feared.   The Knot →

…totally loved everything!

…I went with Mira and the first time I spoke to her on the phone I loved her.  Her voice is like soothing and so sweet. I really gave her no direction when she got there, showed her a few pictures but wasn’t comitted to anything and I just sat there while she did her work not knowing what she was doing and totally loved everything. I thought my hair looked rad and I was amazed at my eye makeup. Best Destination Wedding →

Hair/Makeup – Maui Mira – A+++++ – I loved her!  LOVED LOVED LOVED.

Did I mention I loved her?  I booked her based on what I could find on her, her website, and her prices.  I will admit I was slightly worried because she didn’t require a contract or a deposit and I was unsure if she would show only because I’m paranoid..  Well Mira showed up on time, set up, looked at the inspiration photos and got right to work.  I don’t have the words to express how much I loved my hair and makeup.  I felt beautiful and that’s rare for me.  My makeup lasted the entire night and it wasn’t even airbrushed!  I have very oily skin so I was worried that it would slide off…that stuff lasted the entire night through the humidity and my sweat!  Don’t even get me started on my lashes and eye makeup….I loved it!  I hope I am getting across how happy I was with Mira because she really was awesome and I feel like there are hardly any reviews out there for her, and she so deserves great things to be said.

I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I lved the hair and makeup you did for our family on my wedding day. My mother, cousin, and I are STILL talking about how great of a job you did styling our hair and makeup. It was perfect and a great treat to meet you. I have never seen myself like you did me up and I absolutely loved it! I had no idea that my eyes, hair, and skin could look so good. I really felt beautiful on my wedding day and it was all thanks to you. Thanks again. You are awesome!

Thank you so much for everything! You are so awesome. Everything was so pretty, thanks for helping with the veil and fresh flowers! I suspect that you helped us clean up the room at Mana Kai. Because when we got back, the room was spotless!!! We were amazed and incredibly touched!!!

Hi Mira!

I can’t thank you enough for the fabulous job that you did for my wedding, my mom and I looked amazing and I felt more beautiful than ever on our wedding day. If I know of anyone headed to Maui in need of a makeup artist and hairstylist I will be sure to send them your way!

Thanks again,

Christine (Cavan) Tremmaglia




Thank you all so much to contributing to an amazing wedding day for Lisa and Larry!  They are a very special family going through an incredibly tough time and having such a special day really meant a lot to all of them. There were beyond thrilled!! Lisa and Larry have asked me to provide them with all of your mailing addresses.  Can you please send me the one you want me to give them?

Thanks again for having such big hearts!

Warmest Aloha,



Hi Mira!

I just wanted to say thank you again for the amazing work you did on my hair and the makeup on my girls. They all looked so beautiful and received so many compliments!  Oh and we all loved our lashes! We were all amazed on how fast you popped those babies on! In case you haven’t seen them yet, Jenna posted our wedding on her blog a few days ago!

Here is the link: http://www.nateandjenna.com/blog/2012/08/17/troy-annie/

I’ve also attached a photo of my hair as well. Let me know if you need a bigger size! Thanks again Mira! Best of luck to you and hope you meet the man of your dreams soon ;)!





We just wanted to follow up and thank you for everything you did for our wedding on July 31st. Things were pretty hectic for us and we are now just getting to our thank you to our vendors. I wanted to personally thank you for making my bride look so beautiful on our special day.

We found a site that published our wedding, and gave kudos to all the vendors:


We just got all our wedding photos back, so we will be putting up a site with them (feel free to use for any marketing/facebook). If you ever need a referral, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly. We would be more than happy to give our recommendation for you. Maybe we will be in touch for the 1 year anniversary 🙂

Take care and thank you very much,

Eric & Katie Haraga



Hello Mira,

How are you? I hope all is well! Sorry I haven’t been in touch since our wedding but I really wanted to say thank you so very much for being an important part of my day!! The truth is that you and I actually spent most of the wedding day together lol. I am very lucky to have you as you were such a fun and sweet person. You really made my bridal party and myself look fabulous! My favorite was the natural and beautiful set of eyelashes!

Btw you may have been aware but our wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty last week. I’m sure many of your work had been published but this once again proves your talent.

Here’s the link to SMP:


Please let me know when you come visit in New York. We should hang out!

Thanks again xoxo

Hi Mira,

I can’t believe its been a month already.  I just wanted to send you a few sneak peaks that our photographer worked on.


You did such an awesome job and I thank you so much!!!




Hi Mira,

I just wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on my hair and makeup on the 20th of May. My husband loved it as well and keeps asking if I can do my makeup like that again. 🙂 I was wondering if you could tell me what foundation brand, eye shadow (brand/color), and mascara brand you used? Everything wore so well and it didn’t feel like I had makeup on my skin. 

Thank you again. You did an amazing job and I was so happy with my hair and makeup on the big day!

Hey Mira!!!

It’s been almost one year that we meet, and I wanted to thank you once again for your wonderful work on me, my husband and my mom! Everyone was impressed by your work and professionalism, I have been to many make up artists here in Paris, but never had the same effect like you did!

Once again, thank you, I hope we’ll have to meet up again for another celebration on Maui or why not in Europe 🙂

I don’t remember if I’ve sent you the pics / videos, bute if not, here they are! :))


video 1 . wedding http://vimeo.com/51702837

video 2. trash the dress http://vimeo.com/55702502

You were unfortunately available for trash the dress session, another make up artist did my hair and make up, but since the videographer, even for video 2, made a mix of the wedding day and trash the dress, we can easily see how your work was perfect :))

Take great care and hope to see you soon ! :))

Hugs from Paris ))
