    Team was amazing

    This vendor was recommended to me by a fellow bride. She had a great experience! So I decided to hire them! I am very indecisive person. The artist knew exactly what would look good - Hair and Makeup. I loved the trail. Changed lip color and added volume to hair. The day of wedding - again GREAT! On time - Got done in time. Did amazing job - stayed the whole night.

    Great team that makes you feel your beautiful self!

    My partner and I were very nervous about hair and makeup because we do not wear makeup normally. Kara made us feel comfortable and was very communicative and flexible with our ideas. After a trial run where we still felt maybe it was too much she helped us feel better and talked us through adjustments. And it turned out perfect!! We felt beautiful but still natural and ourselves on our wedding day. We are so grateful for Khloe, Dixie, Josh, and Kara for all they did to make our day so special. Thank you!!!
