Founded by Celebrity Artist & Maui native, Cynthia Rose, we bring a modern and chic approach to wedding and event beauty in Hawaii. Kipona Aloha is the Hawaiian phrase for deep love and we are deeply passionate that well-conceived hair + makeup is as important as the dress you wear, or the flowers you carry. And it shows in every beautiful bride we style.

She is known for her clean, beautiful glowing makeup, cool girl chic hair and an east coast work ethic mixed with a laid back Hawaii attitude.
