Such a professional and talented team!
When booking vendors for our wedding, it was incredibly important to my fiancé and I that we have connections with the people that were going to be involved on our special day. After my phone call with Kara, I knew I had found the perfect team for the wedding day. Our conversations were fun and so easy and an absolute blast on the wedding day. Both Kara and Leanne were fantastic through and through. They were incredibly patient with me and flexible especially when I had requested a hairstyle change 30 days out from the wedding. The artists/stylists at Best Face Forward are incredible and would highly recommend to any brides for their special day.Sent on 10/13/2019

I wish I could rate a billion stars
I am so pleased with BFF!! Kara’s professionalism and prompt communication made them so easy to work with. They are exceptionally detail oriented, they LISTEN to what you want and best of all - they NAIL IT!! I had a large group of girls, 10 including myself, and with 4 artists they seamlessly got us all finished on time. We had Antonia, Alena, Marta, and Lindsey as our artists...they were all so kind and wonderful company to have. We had so much fun getting pampered, all my girls raved about it! Thank you, thank you, thank you BFF for making our wedding day perfect!Sent on 08/04/2019

I had a wonderful time with Susanne and Bri! They did a beautiful job with my makeup and hair respectively, and it looked fantastic in person and in photos! I highly recommend going for the hair & makeup trial. My trial look was beautiful, but it was even better on my actual wedding day.Sent on 09/13/2019
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!
