Karen did my hair and make up as well as my maid of honor's hair for my Catskills wedding in August. I was so happy with how my hair and makeup came out. I was a bit nervous going to someone new since I was coming from out of town, but after my trial I knew Karen got me. She was so easy to talk to and was very receptive to what I like and don't like. I was so lucky to find her. She also made getting ready the day of so much fun. It was like getting ready with one of my girl friends. Thanks so much Karen!
We got married at Full Moon Resort on May 9, 2015, and Karen Neblung was one of their top recommended vendors. She was absolutely amazing and easy to work with and responded quickly to all my questions and last minute changes! For our trial, she tried out various styles to get accustomed to my hair and what would look best and last long. She also worked with all of my bridesmaids prior to the wedding day by exchanging emails with them so she could see their current hair and the styles they wanted. On the day of the wedding, she brought along mirrors, so we could have input every step of the way. She quickly made adjustments and went with any changes we wanted. Even with all the usual chaos of getting ready, she was calm and made sure I was happy, which definitely put me at ease! She followed a timeline to make sure we didn't fall behind on anything, but it wasn't strict so there was no feeling of pressure or rushing In the end, my bridesmaids, my mother, my flower girl, and I all loved our hair, and although we all had different styles, we had a beautiful, cohesive look (e.g. braids or curls tying our looks together). Thank you Karen so much for helping make our wedding so perfect!
Karen provided onsite hairstyling and updo's for me, my mom, and 3 bridesmaids. She was responsive from our first communication, and showed up early on wedding day. Everyone's hair came out amazing - she just worked with each person's thoughts and came up with a great updo for them all. My hair was also amazing and she spent more time with me making sure it came out perfect. And she was really nice, so easy going, we felt like she was just one of our friends hanging out with the girls for the morning. I would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in the Catskills!
Given that our wedding was in the middle of nowhere, I was SO lucky to find the gem that is Karen Neblung, who provided me and my family with hairdos worthy of the big cities! She was extremely attentive and engaged through the entire process, and I felt very comfortable and at ease with her. I adored my hairstyle and that of my sister and niece, and felt so grateful to have found her out in the "boonies"! Only wish I lived closer so I could have her do my hair all the time!
My hairstyle was possibly my favorite element of my wedding day. Karen did an amazing job, not only of fashioning my updo, but also of listening to me with a talented stylist's ear and getting my vision for my hair spot-on. My mom and I both had our makeup done as well, and were happy with it but not blown away. For weddings at the beautiful resorts in this area, Karen is (relatively) convenient to get to, and she will come to your wedding site for an extra fee.
One thing to keep in mind is that Karen is by herself, so she can accommodate four people for hair at most. Also, Karen really takes her time with the styles, which is a good thing but definitely needs to be scheduled for. I did a hair trial (a VERY helpful experience) which took upwards of two hours, and she spent at least that long on my hair and makeup on the wedding day. Ultimately, I was extremely happy with my hair, which helped my wedding day feel that much more enchanting.
There are pros and there are cons of getting married in the middle of nowhere. One of those cons was that it is really hard to find professionals. After a lot of looking and comparing, I found Karen Neblung, who is not only skilled but also someone I would rank high on my list of random strangers I'd be willing to spend my wedding day with.
Karen was amazing! She went way above the call of duty to give the ring bearer a hair cut and trim the officiant's bangs as well as do our hair and makeup. I couldn't have navigated my way through that stressful time right before your ceremony without Karen. She did an amazing job of ruling the roost right before the ceremony to keep us on time and looking amazing. I highly recommend this vendor.
