Carla is a hair and makeup GENIUS!!! I was so nervous about having my hair done for my wedding because my hair is short, fine and thin, and I wanted a big updo….which I figured would be near impossible. I showed up to my trial with a vague description of what I wanted but no specific idea, and Carla created the most amazing look, better than I could have imagined!! My wedding hair and makeup were both flawless, I got so many compliments and loved feeling so beautiful and confident on my wedding day. Plus, both my hair and makeup lasted over 14 hours, surviving the snow/sleet and even a round of basketball at 1 AM after the wedding, with no touch ups needed! Carla did a fabulous job on my bridesmaids’ hair and makeup as well. The time completely flew by because she is so fun to talk to! I am so ecstatic that Carla was available for my wedding and would recommend her to absolutely anyone!! She is amazing.Sent on 04/15/2018

Engagement Shoot hair & make-up!
Carla did an amazing job with my hair and makeup for my engagement shoot today! I have had to previously reschedule with her due to weather conflicts and she was flexible and worked with me each step of the way. She always responded to my emails in a timely manner and offered up her help throughout the entire process. If my wedding was not in NJ I would easily hire her for my special day because I trust that she would do a phenomenal job. She is professional and very easy to talk to! I would highly recommend hiring her for your special day. Thank you Carla!Sent on 04/23/2019

She could do celebrity hair and makeup
Our wedding venue recommended Carla to me-his recommendation was "Judging by your natural look, your tight timeline, if you want the best-it is Carla White." He was not wrong. Her style is elegant not overdone, and she kept my bridal party and me in line to keep up with our timeline. She brought her partner and also an assistant, traveled to our venue, and was very professional throughout the entire process. We chatted several times before the big day, because logistics were involved since I had 2.5 hours and there were 8 of us to style (hair and makeup). I have no idea how she finished in time, but everyone looked amazing! My updo held up through an entire day/night of dancing and my makeup was flawless. I will wait for professional photos to share, because they are necessary to get a full effect of how great everyone looked. I highly recommend Carla, because your wedding day should be drama free, time is of the essence, and everyone needs to look great. She handles all of this!!!Sent on 11/28/2018
If you want a gal that knows how to do hair and makeup, enhancing the natural beauty, then you have got to give Carla a call.... she will make you look like the very best version of yourself on your big day!
Hands down the BEST hair and makeup artist you will find. Carla's work is flawless and she is the sweetest person to be around. I recommend her to all my brides and she is one of the first vendors I book. Not many planners say that about hair/makeup artists!
