Testimonials from our past clients!

I found Merisakhi Creations while I was looking at some South Indian wedding pictures in a wedding website. Kanchan’s portfolio was amazing and she also had wonderful Yelp reviews. So I immediately sent her an email and she got back to me the same day. We went over the bridal services, prices and contract and I booked her the same week. I did not have time to have a bridal hair and make-up consultation before my wedding however, I did not worry about it as I was confident that Kanchan will do a great job. On the day of wedding, we had to start at 5.30 am and Kanchan was right on time. She was very professional, friendly and sweet. I was really impressed that she brought an array of very well-organized make-up kit and even her own lighting. During the hair and make-up, she always checked with me to see if I liked the hair style, the amount of make-up, the lip color and so on which made me feel relaxed and comfortable. The hair and make-up turned stunning (as my friends and family put it) and I felt very beautiful and happy that everything turned out well within the time slot. I can’t thank Kanchan enough for the awesome hair and make-up and I highly recommend her for a gorgeous bridal hair and make-up for your wedding.

Kanchan did my bridal mendhi and it was gorgeous! I didn’t have a solid idea of what I wanted only a few elements that I really loved. She melded them all together into one beautiful cohesive design. She made sure that I was comfortable the entire time. She also insisted on having me eat the second I got hungry because she wanted the entire experience to be comfortable and memorable. It was a wonderful relaxing experience!

Kanchan did my bridal mehndi. She was incredibly responsive and patient as I was figured out the serviced I wanted, and she did not hesitate to accommodate a last minute location change (same city though). On the day of, she asked about the kinds of mehndhi I liked and created beautiful, intricate designs. I highly recommend Kanchan!

Kanchan did my intricate bridal mendhi, medium intricate mendhi for 20 members of my bridal party and several dozen other more simple designs for the whole group. We ended up booking her for three days because we had several wedding events. She did an excellent job with all of us. She’s a good artist but she’s also sweet, patient and accommodating. I had several issues with south asian wedding vendors showing up late (or not at all!) and we had no such issues with Kanchan. She has a calming presence and she’s wonderful to work with. I would recommend her to any bride and to anyone planning a big, complicated event. I’ll use her again if I have the opportunity! Thank you for your great work!!Also, this is a small thing, but she takes Venmo. Which is so much better than most cash only vendors out there. Efficient, convenient, professional, talented and sweet. Couldn’t have asked for more.

When it comes to weddings, the last thing a bride wants is her vendors stressing her out. And I’m very happy that I had Kanchan do my bridal henna! I had booked her in advance, and every time I had a question or concern, she was always quick to respond.I loved my design! Not only is she good at what she does, but also very sweet. Thank you Kanchan, for being part of my big day!

I came across MeriSakhi while browsing through wedding beauticians over the internet. I must say I was very skeptical about this at first but after browsing through the gallery on the website, a lot of my fears were put to rest. It was only after I spoke with Kanchan, I realized that she is not only very knowledgeable about various make up and hair techniques, she is also very willing to listen to her client to give them a very satisfactory experience. Kanchan did my hair and makeup for my wedding and thanks to her, I ended up looking and feeling fabulous (I think !) on my special day. Proof : I got a lot of compliments on my entire look. I definitely recommend her. Thanks Kanchan!!

Kanchan came to my birthday party and in record time, painted beautiful henna designs for all 50 of my friends. Her work is amazing and everyone had so much fun talking about how pretty their henna looked. She is warm, professional and friendly with everyone. I highly recommend her and would absolutely work with her again.


Kanchan did my makeup two times in fashion shows. She does an amazing job. Flawless makeup with airbrush. I just loved her work. AMAZING and FLAWLESS.

Kanchan did my hair and makeup for my engagement. She matched my outfit perfectly with my makeup, and knew exactly what colors to use and what look to achieve for this occasion. All I did was send her a picture of what I wanted and she was able to create it. She is also very calm, listens to you and very easy to work with. I highly recommend her for any of your events where you can’t risk not looking your best!

Kanchan did my make-up and hair for my wedding she was great. She was able to do my hair just like the picture and it stayed all day and night with no fixes needed and the Make up was also wonderful she was able to cover up my very dark circles under my eyes. The make-up and hair were so good that most people did not recognize me right away when they saw my wedding pictures 4/14/2008

Kanchan is very efficient, fast, professional, artistic, organized and fun to work with. I was very happy with her designs and she is very talented and fast at her work. She can apply beautiful mehendi within a few minutes on your hand, by the time we have chatted, she has already done beautiful mehendi on your hands and we are completely awe struck. The mehendi design was wonderful and the color came out very dark and stayed on the hands for a lot of days. I am absolutely happy with her work, and would recommend her work to any one anyday.

She is extremely fast in her designs and all her designs are very unique and blend well with all occasions.She has thorough knowledge in her field and has a lot to offer.When we invited her to Santa Clara for a ladies night out function ,we were astonished by her speed and unique designs.Her willingness to come from Tracy to Santa Clara shows her above and beyond attitude for her Clients/Customers.The Mehendi was of very good quality and stayed for many days on my hands.Her work is clean and organized i.e right from cones to paper towels she had everything with her in her bag. Hats off to Kanchan !!! on her creativity and hard work. Success well achieved!!!

I chose Kanchan for my mendhi based on her amazing photos of her work. I picked one of her own designs, but altered it slightly. She did my mendhi exactly the way I wanted it, and it was absolutely flawless! I did my mendhi two days before my wedding, and I had the darkest color I have ever seen! She was on time and professional with her work, and very friendly with great suggestions. I will definitely call on Kanchan for my next event! I came across Kanchan through her website and took a chance, especially since I lived in Chicago and was unable to meet her until 3 days before my wedding! However she took my fears away during the trial, and on my wedding day she was prompt and professional. I felt and looked like a princess. My hair was exactly the way I wanted it, and my makeup was flawless (despite having acne!). You couldn’t see a single pimple in all of my photos. Kanchan is a total star. She really made my wedding a dream come true!
