[ syll. ja-do-re, j'a-d-ore ]
J'adore is derived from French origins and it is translated as "I adore".
In order to say "I adore you", one would say "Je t'adore", which is <Je> meaning "I"; <tu> meaning "you"; and <adore> meaning "adore". You drop the "u" in "tu" because adore begins with a vowel.
"Je adore la beauté"
"I adore beauty"

I discovered J'Adore Beauty through Wedding Wire to do my wedding day hair and makeup; I couldn't be happier with my choice! Karla and her team showed-up on time to my hotel and immediately rolled out the best beauty products. On my wedding day, she got straight to work and recreated the look I wanted perfectly in under two hours. Karla definitely is the best! She is so precise and detail-oriented and her team is so talented. A plus: Karla is fun and easy to talk to. She'll make your wedding-prep experience all the more fun! Throughout the booking process, I showed her pictures of the "look" I was going for and she got it immediately. It was so easy to book with her and also left me peace of mind to know that it was officially booked, not "in the air" like with other artists who say they will come and never show up! I was terrified that might happen to me but Karla was very professional and reliable. Although J'Adore Beauty's rates are reasonable, the high quality of their work will guarantee you your dream wedding look. Hire Karla and she'll make you look like a princess! Thanks for everything, Karla! My groom started crying when he saw me so I guess you did your job :)

Karla was one of the best decisions I made in my wedding planning, hands down. I found her through wedding wire and went for her based on these reviews and price. She is AWESOME.
When I had my trial run and brought some pictures of roughly what I wanted, she NAILED it. No tweaks, just able to create exactly the feel I wanted. (And I am a fairly picky, detail-oriented person.) She was able to create the exact look I wanted on her first shot.
On my wedding day (Aug 2014), she showed up on time and was ready to go. She did beautiful and stunning up & part-up hairdos for my bridesmaids, and flawlessly recreated for me what she had done at my trial months before. Plus, she used really high quality makeup that lasted the whole night. I was total waterworks, but my makeup held through.
Karla is responsive, sweet - and as far as pricing goes for hair & makeup (I got married in SF and had major sticker shock) - she was amazing value and much more reasonable than other options I'd found. Karla is a GREAT pick - and definitely so grateful I found her!

As a person with a low-key everyday look, Karla took me surprise with my trial run and I thought it was a little much. I asked for a more natural look for the day of the wedding and she listened to exactly what I requested! My mom (who also never wears make-up) also got it warily done for the day of and Karla made it look as natural a possible--you couldn't even tell she was wearing any, which suited her perfectly. I also had to adjust my location and time for the day of the wedding and she was flexible and kind enough to adjust it even after signing my contract. I only give a 4.5 on the professionalism because I was quoted an incorrect price for a trial by her assistant. Her pricing was the most reasonable I could find in the San Jose area with high reviews. I would definitely recommend Karla to future brides and may come back to her when I'm in a future wedding this fall!

With Karla, you're in good hands. She is simply amazing. She explained the entire process from start to finish since I was a newbie. I was really nervous about dying my hair for the first time but with her I really felt at ease. One thing I really loved about her is that she took her time, she never rushed and that to me is a really crucial thing. In the end, the final product was amazing and I adore my hair. I owe it all to Karla

Karla is awesome! I'm a professional photographer and I have worked with over a dozen different makeup artists in the 5 years I've been shooting professionally - "testing" each one - punctuality, responsiveness to emails, quality of work, general work ethic, etc. Currently working with 5 different muas, I'm needless to say strict about who I work with - since they are in some ways a representation of my own business.
Karla has never failed in her professionalism and quality of work, and I happily send her info to my Clients when they ask for referrals. She also does hair styling, which is a huge plus, since you don't need two different people working on one person and can avoid any possible scenarios when dealing with so many people.
I've worked with her on boudoir and wedding gigs, and always get a positive response from our Clients about the overall experience with her.

Karla gave me my first make over ever and I absolutely loved it! She made me feel and look great! She was very nice to talk to and not intimidating what so ever. Listened to everything I wanted and did not want, and helped me impress my fiance. (even early in the morning before my flight) :) I highly recommend her skills for any special occasion!

Karla is a very gifted and talented artist. I had the pleasure of a cut and a color on two separate visits within a week or so apart. I've felt like an orphan for years not being able to find that one stylist who can do it all to my fine curly hair since moving to the South Bay. Karla gave me nothing short of a Cinderella experience on my first visit. It had taken me 8 months to grow out a horrible cheap deal hair cut on the fly, which left me feeling a bit vulnerable. Karla listened to my needs and pulled off the best cut I can recall having in this century! The architecture of my textured bob with a side bang was spot on, red carpet movie star quality (and I'm no stranger to high end salons). When she did the reveal, I think my eyes welled with joy. I looked 10 years younger (in a good way) and got so much attention wherever I went, I lost count after 13 compliments in just a couple of hours. Men I know who wouldn't look at me in that "hey you look hot" sort of way, complimented me with "wows" and flirtatious sweet nothings that boosted my day. People I didn't even know where touching my silky shiny hair as if it was bejeweled. I got so much attention and loved my cut so much that I booked another appt. with her right away to color my funky gray roots that had grown out longer than they should (which she somehow managed to magically cover the week before). My hair color rocked and lasted a long time. The best part, my hair is not all fried and the healthiest it's been in years and I spend $100's on high end products for my hair. Karla introduced me to a few lines of products she has that really help shape, straighten, control and condition my fine curly Italian hair (which doesn't take much to revert to a loose fro if I let it). Karla will make you feel and look like a Goddess when she is done. She has an amazing artistically eye and a beautiful soul. If you are looking for a jaw dropping Cinderella experience, Karla will not disappoint and her prices are reasonable, especially when you consider the high quality turn out you get in the end.

She did an excellent job on my color, matching my natural color nicely and I loved the cut with perfect layers. My side sweep bangs turned out great... its crazy how often i have to fix my bangs when I get home but not with her, they were perfect. Definitely found my new hair stylist!

Karla was amazing. With just a few pictures she and her assistant were able to give me and my girls the looks we wanted. She came to the hotel and set up there. She did my bridal hair & make up, hair & make up for my maid of honor, and hair for the other 4 bridesmaids. Great price and value- she has packages that you can choose from that are totally affordable. The only thing was it took longer than the 3 hours and we were running late for pictures. But other than that it was great!

Karla did such a fabulous job on my hair! She took such care, and creativity with it, that I am very impressed! She has a great combo of professionalism and passion for her job, and positivity - She is a true artist of her trade, and everyone should check her our for their next hair cut! :)
