My name is Carla Pressley and I'm a wedding junkie/wedding hairstylist and makeup artist. I do weddings instead of runway shows and television now because I LOVE WEDDINGS!! I have over 12 years of experience getting couples calmy and fabulously down the aisle. My work has been featured amongst many high-profile publications, designers, TV shows and cosmetic companies, including Martha Stewart Weddings, Marc Jacobs, Project Runway and Tarte Cosmetics. My goal on your wedding day is to make sure you look fabulous and feel amaing! I run my business with my admin assistant and genius Erin. You'll love her! If there is a party I cant not accomodate on my own with the time allowed, I have a fabulous hair and makeup team to the rescue!
I work with all skin tones and hair textures. I used to work in a very busy salon and understand face shapes and all the many textures of hair, including MEN!

As a wedding planner, I am THRILLED when I work with vendors that are amazing. Carla Pressley is one of them! Recently, I had an opportunity to work with Carla at a wedding in Leesburg, Va. I'd seen examples of Carla's work on social media and her website. I knew she was talented. However, when I finally had the privilege of seeing her work in person, I was blown away! Carla is the MUA and stylist you MUST have on your wedding day. She's punctual, thorough, professional, creative, and just a delight to be around! I can't wait to work with her again! Carla, thank you for making my job easier by being so awesome!Sent on 03/02/2018

Simply the best!
I've known Carla for years so when I got engaged I knew exactly who was going to do my hair and make up for my wedding day. Carla and her team are the calm you need in an often hectic bridal suite. She took the time to make sure me and my entire bride tribe including our moms and flower girl looked their absolute best. The weather on my day was perfect (though a little hot in the sun). Carla was right there with an umbrella to shield my sensitive skin from the rays. She thinks of everything!!! I was so happy to have Carla around for touch-ups throughout first looks and the pre-ceremony bridal party pictures. She also stuck around for post-ceremony touch-ups to make sure my lipstick was in place and my eye make up was unphased by the happy tears! I highly recommend Carla and her team for all your hair and makeup needs for your big day!!!Sent on 09/07/2019

From beginning to end, Carla puts her passion behind her work. A fabulous addition to our wedding party and someone that brought excitement to the day. She can take an idea and turn it into a beautiful vision. She’s a true artist and we were thrilled with her work.Sent on 09/22/2019
