Incredible Experience with Best Face Forward
Best Face Forward was the best decision I made when it came to hair and makeup for my wedding day. From the very first interaction with Kara, she was super straightforward about the entire process, and helped me every step of the way. Kara was always available whenever I had a question or if I wanted to reach out and send inspiration for my looks for myself and my bridal party.Sent on 06/03/2021
I opted for the trial and wedding day package for my looks and I am glad I did. The trial felt so personalized and the stylists (Andrea for hair and Heather for makeup) made me feel comfortable and beautiful. They were super knowledgeable and creative. Seeing the look before the big day put my mind at ease.
Wedding day went so smoothly and both Heather and Andrea were amazing. They were flexible with schedule and last minute change ups, and made us all feel beautiful for the occasion. Throughout this entire process of planning, with the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, I knew that I had to be extra cautious, but with BFF, they were both professional and safe around me and my bridal party.
Overall, I cannot sing their praises enough. Best Face Forward was a joy to work with and they made me feel amazing on my wedding day. I highly recommend working with them for your next event!!

Wonderful Hair and Makeup Experience!
Best Face Forward, especially Nicole (hair) and Larissa (makeup) provided outstanding service! Our day started at 5:45am for makeup and 7am for hair and all of us were ready according to our timeline. Both hair and makeup lasted with perfection the entire evening, more than 8 hours after services were completed. Larissa provided makeup services from those in their 20s to those in their 70s and all of their makeup looked smashingly beautiful. Nicole provided hair services to all, and all hair styles were naturally stunning! Both makeup and hair looked beautiful in photos and those who received services from Nicole and Larissa received many favorable compliments throughout the day and evening. I highly recommend Best Face Forward for your hair and makeup needs!Sent on 05/15/2021

wedding hair and makeup
Kara made planning my hair and make up all the way from Alaska painless. And WOW Leanne and Josh did the best hair and make I have ever had done for a wedding. They were super easy to work with and they made you feel like family from the trial all the way to my wedding day. Highly recommend this amazing team.Sent on 05/05/2021
Best Face Forward- Skin, Makeup & Hair Artists's reply:Malia! You are a total blast and your sweet spirit and fun energy has been so refreshing!! We are grateful to have gotten the opportunity to be a part of your big day!
We love working with Kara and her seasoned team. A huge factor for me in hiring a vendor is responsiveness and she is amazingly responsive and attentive! Her team does a great job of making our clients feel at ease throughout the entire process which is why I always recommend her!
We LOVED working with Susanne at Best Face Forward! She was so sweet, made everyone look STUNNING and super easy to work with! 100% recommend!
A Fantastic company to work with. I can't recommend the amazing makeup artists here enough!
