When our daughter Preeti was getting married in 2006 I was looking for someone special to adorn her with mehndi and her bridal attire. We could not have selected a better person or a more talented individual than Adiba. Preeti's mehndi was beautiful. She is a beautiful girl, but I must say Adiba’s talent just added the magic needed for her to look simply gorgeous as a bride.

Not only she is talented; but its the personal interest she takes in each person she works with that makes the whole experience wonderful.

We wish her the very best in her bridal, beauty, clothing business and know she will continue to be a blessing to many because she see beauty in others and know how to enhance it with her knowledge and talent.
It is a priviledge to refer Adiba to others. She does excellent work! She is very artistic, creative and talented. The mehandi and bridal make up that she did for for our daughter Preeti was excellent. Everyone loved the results and Preeti looked beautiful. There is magic in her fingers for sure. She also has such a pleasing personality and can understand the needs of her client perfectly. It is a pleasure working with her. We also felt she put love into her work and do it with great interest and sincerity. Our friends and family also loved the mehndi designs that she applied on them. Her sweet and gentle nature just adds to the whole experience.

There is no doubt in our minds that she is and will always be successful. We wish you the best.

Just wanted to say THANK YOU!

The very first time I had a pleasure to meet Adiba was the day of my mehndi day. As being a cautious person I had my reservations initially, even about the extent of henna on my hands. To my surprise she not only made me feel "very" comfortable from the begining and not forced her point of view on me, but was extremely patient and humble to work with.
As I mentioned earlier I was very reluctant to have even a small of mehndi applied to my hands, but as the mehndi art progressed I was getting very comfortable and pleased as to how it was turning out & to make the long story short I had henna applied on both the front and the back of my hands and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Adiba is also a phenomenal make-up artist. She can make anyone look beautiful with her gift. My family, friends and most of all myself were more than pleased to have work with her. She is extremely gifted and is very passionate for what she does. In my book she comes HIGHLY recommended and I give her kudos for her work!!!! Thank you again Adiba, for making me look and feel beautiful!!!

Mohammad Sayed

My name is Mohammad Sayed and I have been living in the United States for over 30 years now. I am originally from London, England and my mother land is Pakistan and therefore I have great interest in Pakistani clothing and culture. I have, in the past, had difficulty finding Pakistani clothes for myself that suited my personal style. About 5 years ago, I meet Adiba Nisar and learned about her specialty in designer clothing and custom-made dress. After talking with her and describing my personal style, she immediately took charge and helped me design custom clothing that suited my taste, price range, and personality. I was amazed that I was able to find custom-made clothing that met my expectations so well. Since then, I have always ordered my clothing through Adiba Nisar for all occasions. She is professional and works hard to ensure smooth ordering and delivery.

Based on my experience with ordering clothing through Adiba, I decided to use her Bridal hair, make-up, and mehndi services for my daughter’s wedding in July 2006. Adiba was very professional and helpful when it came to hair and make-up techniques for wedding functions. She worked closely with my daughter each step of the way and made sure everything was perfect on the actual wedding day. Not only did she do hair, make-up, and dress for the bride, she also worked on the mother and sisters of the bride as well, all of whom looked perfect for the occasion. She was always friendly and helpful. We were relieved to have her help and expertise on such an important day in our lives.
In fact, we even ordered all bridal clothing, including the wedding outfit, as well as various other dresses for the reception with Adiba. Everything that we ordered met our expectations wonderfully. Adiba met with my entire family and helped us pick clothing that suited each of us individually. Her professional opinion on the latest fashions and trends helped make the whole process smooth and efficient. Since then, I consider her to be my family’s personal designer when it comes to Pakistani clothing and attire, as well as a personal friend. Anytime we need any designer clothes, which we buy very often, we always turn to her. I am very pleased with her work and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional makeup artist with an eye for fashion, design, and the latest trends. She is truly passionate about what she does and she will meet your expectations, as she has always met mine. For any references, please contact me via email at sayedm1@hotmail.com.

Adiba did my bridal makeup and hair for my wedding on October 24, 2008. I am an American, and my husband is Pakistani. I was very excited to wear a traditional wedding lehnga, but having such little exposure to Pakistani culture, I had no idea what kind of makeup to have, how to wear the dupatta, etc. We were getting married outside of Frederick and planned to settle in Frederick after the wedding. It was through shear luck, or maybe fate, that I found Adiba's business card in a Desi grocery store on one of my trips to Frederick while we were looking for a house. I gave her a call, and she was very friendly and accommodating. I think I was able to set up a time to meet with her the next day, which I was thankful for because my wedding date was fast approaching! I went to her home studio and had a consultation with her. My sister-in-law had arrived by this point, so she was able to come with me. I think Adiba understood that I did not have much experience with the traditional wedding dress and makeup, and presented me with several options for different looks we could do with the makeup. I had brought my dupatta with me, and she did a great job of using makeup colors that would complement the dress colors. I am quite fair-skinned, so was worried that the heavy makeup would look too dramatic, but she managed to strike just the right balance with the makeup so that it looked elegant and beautiful. She also did a very nice job pulling my hair back. After the consultation, I was so happy with the results and felt very comfortable having her do my hair and makeup for the wedding. I also decided to have a facial performed by her the day before the wedding, which was so nice and relaxing during a very stressful time! On the day of the wedding, Adiba came to Morningside Inn, where we were having the ceremony and reception. She arrived early, with plenty of time to do my hair and makeup, as well as the hair and makeup of my 4 bridesmaids and my sister-in-law. She also gave me a lot of assistance in putting on my dupatta and jewelry. We all looked so wonderful, and I was so appreciative of Adiba's work. She charged a very reasonable rate, which I was happy to pay her for all of the work she had done. She even let me pay later, so that I didn't need to mess with that right before the wedding.

Overall, Adiba helped to make our wedding more pleasant. I knew that I didn't need to worry about that aspect of planning the wedding, because she is very dependable and will do a great job. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to any bride, or to anyone who needs makeup or hair done for an event.
