Canaan was great to work with through the process. She did a wonderful job on my bridesmaids, mom, and mother of the groom. I absolutely loved how my look turned out the day of the wedding! She did a beautiful job with my hair and makeup.

Absolutely Flawless!!

Canaan is so sweet and professional, she was so flexible during Covid as we switched our date and worked with me on what to do for my hair and makeup. Wedding day was so much fun with her around, and she made me feel so beautiful and exactly what I wanted!!
