Hair and makeup angels
One of the things that I am most happy about was finding BFF on wedding wire. Kara is passionate about her work and was amazing to work with on my special day. I could not express enough how professional, easy, and stress-free it is to have BFF for hair/makeup. I loved how the trial was in my own home and that the incredible Larissa and Leeann came with masks and everything they used was sanitary and high quality. They are amazing people, made me feel comfortable, and appreciated any input I had. I am a shy person and they somehow made me feel like I have known them forever. I am most impressed with how knowledgeable they both are in hair/makeup. When it came to my actual wedding, the girls were punctual and made myself, my mom, and sister look/feel beautiful. I am so happy with the outcome, if you are doubting what to do for hair/makeup, give this company a try because you will not regret it.Sent on 09/14/2020

Amazing and fun!
I received a call from my make up artist three days before my elopement wedding that she could not make it. I called several places but it was last minute and no one was available. Luckily, when I contacted Kara from Best Face Forward, she was profesional and wanted to help me out. Kara came to my rescue and made me feel like the prettiest bride. I’m so blessed I found her, she is not only kind and caring but very good at what she does. I highly recommend her!Sent on 11/21/2020

Loved my hair and makeup!
I’m so glad I went with Best Face Forward for my wedding ceremony! (The have a ton of positive reviews for a reason!) Hair and makeup was the vendor I was most nervous about because I don’t usually wear much makeup. From my first conversation with Kara over the phone, I knew BFF was the right fit. Kara did my makeup and Leanne did my hair. They both were so professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We tried different looks at the trial and they gave helpful feedback about what would look the best on me and with my dress. The day of the ceremony I looked better than I ever imagined! I felt so beautiful and confident. My mom and sister also had their hair and makeup done and looked great! My husband and I postponed our wedding reception to next year because of COVID and I already have BFF booked. I can’t recommend BFF enough if you want to look and feel your best on your big day!Sent on 11/11/2020

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!
