About Us – Wedding Hair Stylists & Much More
Why are we different and more expensive? Honestly, it’s because we are the best.
After 18 years and over 1,500 brides, Marjie Martini decided to bring together the very best wedding hair stylist and makeup artists that she has ever worked with. The Collective is a group of amazing hair and makeup artists that Marjie has personally hand-picked. Each stylist was selected because she has watched them display not only incredible talent, but also the professional and personal communication skills required to give each client exactly the vision they want of themselves. Plus, we deliver everything on time and in a professional manner.
From your first email, Marjie will help you select the best stylist for your style and personality, as well as for your friends and family. We not only love what we do, we are passionate about beauty – the inner beauty of each woman is what we strive to bring to the surface. We can make any woman “look” pretty, but what we really do is make every woman “feel” beautiful.

“I was in my girlfriend’s wedding a few months before my own. It was chaos, right from the start. The hair/makeup stylists were unprofessional, under skilled and they were so slow. After 4 hours we were still not ready and ran over an hour late for the wedding. The Bride, Groom and photographer were all stressed and rushed, this set the tone for the whole night . . . Chaos! Afterwards my girlfriend (the bride) admitted that she should have spent less on her shoes and more money on her stylists, she regretted not hiring her first choice Marjie at the Funky Diva Collective. Well I didn’t make that mistake I wore flip flops and spent the cash on Marjie. My wedding day was a completely different experience, We were all done in 3 hours and looked amazing. We we actually dressed and ready to go early, it was a fun and relaxed day and I have never looked or FELT better in my life. My advice for future brides . . . you get what you pay for . . . so pay for the best and book Marjie and her team, beside everyone notices your head, no one even sees your shoes! “
