I booked Carrie to do my hair and makeup for an engagement session in April. From the moment I spoke with her on the phone I know I loved her! She really cares about the bride and it doesn't feel like you're talking to a business owner who is just trying to make money. She really wants to work with people who want to look and feel amazing! Her studio is amazing, and her work is so fantastic! I loved that she took time to get to know what I was looking for.
I got so many compliments when people saw my photos! My fiancee and I live in PA so we unfortunately can't use her for our wedding (if we had unlimited funds, she would be my girl!!!)
I am so grateful to have been given her name!!
I cannot say enough good things about Carrie and her amazing team. I was a destination bride and had her and the girls come to where we were staying in Folly Beach. When they arrived, I was blown away at how quickly and efficiently they were able to do our hair and makeup and they were all FLAWLESS. We all couldn't stop staring at ourselves! I highly recommend them for any event, completely worth every single penny and one of the best vendors I worked with throughout my entire planning process. Thank you Carrie!!!
I am a minimalist when it comes to makeup - a little powder, light eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss. On my wedding day, I wanted to look a little more put-together, but still natural. Alissa at Paper Dolls did an amazing job, and I could not have been happier with how my makeup turned out. My bridesmaids wanted a variety of makeup - from traditional to airbrush, light application to heavier - and they all looked absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend Paper Dolls!
Shayla did my hair and makeup last week for a wedding in Charleston. She was so professional and did a fantastic job...I would highly recommend her!
Carrie and her team are wonderful! I got married on a hurricane weekend, with half of Charleston flooded and her team was calm and collected the whole time. Even when the power went out, they finished our hair and makeup in natural light and Carrie sent one of her team members to our hotel (which had power) to finish my mom's and grandmother's hair. We all looked beautiful! Another thing I really appreciated is that she didn't get offended during my trial run when I kept changing my hair style. I came in with a certain style in mind and after seeing it, it wasn't the right feeling I wanted. Carrie took the time to find out what the feeling was that I wanted, but what I was trying to avoid and really delivered.
Carrie and Paper Dolls are amazing! I chose her based on the amazing reviews and beautiful pictures of other brides she had worked with.
We had a destination wedding so when we went down to Charleston to do some wedding planning I had my trial done and was very happy with the results.
Speed forward to the wedding day and Carrie offered to do both my hair and makeup which I was SO thankful for as it came out AMAZING! She was so professional and answered all of my questions throughout the entire planning process and was even accommodating when I had special requests. Before the wedding day, she asked if there were any tweaks I wanted to make and even made some last minute changes on the day of.
I couldn't have been more thankful that I found Paperdolls as hair and makeup is one of the most important parts of the bridal look. Everyone was commenting on what a great job they did on me and my bridesmaids!!
Thanks again for everything, Carrie and team :)
Amanda was great! Friendly and professional. She completed make-up and eyelashes on my bridal party. She was on time and finished on time. Make-up was flawless. Carrie, the owner, is so responsive and quick! Overall, a great experience on my wedding day and would recommend them to anyone! (Also, pretty inexpensive, which is a great bonus for a wedding budget!).
I used Shayla Battle with Paper Dolls Hair and Makeup for my engagement photos and wedding and I was OBESSESD! Shayla not only listened to what I wanted but went above and beyond. My entire bridal party got their hair done as well and all the girls LOVED it. If only I lived in Charleston I would probably have Shayla do my hair daily. I highly recommend Paper Dolls for your wedding!
By far THE BEST in the business for hair and makeup. I booked them for both my boudoir session and wedding day and they were great! I received SO many compliments on my hair and makeup. If you want to look perfect on your big day, book them!
Paper Dolls was wonderful and was extremely flexible when I needed to change the date of my engagement photos due to weather. They were responsive, helpful and very willing to listen to my feedback and make sure I was happy with how my hair and make up turned out.
Carrie is absolutely wonderful! She is such a professional, so patient, detailed, and calm. She genuinely wanted to find a style that was right for me and was willing to keep working with me on styles until we found one together. I showed Carrie a picture of exactly how I wanted my hair styled and she NAILED it on the very first try. My hair is very thick and frizzy, so the humidity in Charleston is tough for my strands. My hair looked perfect all night and stayed in place perfectly all night long. I felt like a princess and couldn't have been happier working with Carrie. She also made my bridesmaids and mom look stunning and made us all together look and feel amazing! I would 100% recommend her to all brides! She is THE BEST!
I chose Paper Dolls to do makeup and hair for my wedding because Shayla had also done my sister's wedding and I was so impressed. I had an initial trial and showed Shayla a picture of the hair style I wanted and she created magic! My hair looked exactly like the picture, doing hair is like playing music by ear for her! Shayla was so much fun and did a wonderful job. I would recommend her to any bride. Here are pictures: http://www.danacubbageweddings.com/blog/chelsey-matt-july-4th-creek-club-at-ion-wedding/
Carrie is awesome! She made myself and my whole wedding party look and feel beautiful! She is so talented and is able to recreate any look. Aside from being talented she is also such a kind person, very easy to get along with and talk to. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get their hair and make up done in the Charleston area!
Carrie is such a treasure. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding in Charleston- June 2015. Carrie made me feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the entire planning process. I was very nervous about the bridal trial because I had previously completed a trial with a different Charleston hair/makeup company and it was a disaster. Carrie reassured me that PaperDolls would be a better experience and she was so right! It was a fantastic experience all around. In all, I did a hair trial, bridal portrait makeup, my mom did a hair trial with her and my wedding day (plus all my bridesmaids). PaperDolls is the most professional hair/makeup company I have ever used- she was actually ahead of the time schedule on the wedding day which is such an accomplishment!!! I had so many compliments from guests that I was "glowing"- the makeup was flawless and my hair held up for the entire day (8+ hours)!!!! Thank you Carrie and PaperDolls for all that you did to make me the most beautiful version of myself on my wedding day! - Ashlyn
Carrie was great! She met myself and my bridesmaids at our location and did her magic. My makeup and hair was gorgeous and it stayed that way all night.
Carrie was amazing. From the very beginning she was responsive and helpful, which is so important when you are planning a wedding from another country! She was really easy to get along with and when she did my trial, not only did I enjoy a nice glass of wine, she got my hair and makeup perfect the first time around!! I am not sure how she did it, but on the wedding day, it turned out even better, I absolutely loved it!! Thank you so much!!
