    Three time wedding client!

    Kelly has been the hair stylist for 3 weddings that I have been a part of over the last 15 years! My hair has been different each time and I have always looked amazing! This time, not only was the ceremony outdoors, it was windy with some rain. I danced the night away. My hair looked just as good at the end of the night (early the next morning) as it did at 8:00am when it was done! I’m not sure I have any more weddings for Kelly to do my hair for but I will for sure use her for other special occasions!
    Agnes was the makeup artist for the wedding and she made me look great! I didn’t look like I hadn’t slept in a week (OK I slept but not much) and my makeup held all night! This was my first time with false eyelashes and they were perfect! I will use Agnes for other special occasions as well!

    Great MUA!

    Kelly was great to work with! I was a little nervous about hiring a makeup artist because I didn’t want to look overdone or not like myself on my wedding day. Kelly’s styling was perfect. I still felt like myself, but elevated. The makeup translated perfectly in pictures, as well! After our trial, Kelly was receptive to a few tweaks, which I really appreciated. Highly recommend!
