Amazing! She finalized the vision of my wedding with her artistry! The hair and makeup lasted all day! She went above and beyond my expectations!
Carrie did my hair and makeup as well as the MOB and SOB. I planned half my wedding while living abroad and was relieved to have someone who responds quickly to emails. Carrie was super flexible when my original wedding spot cancelled and we had to move locations.Sent on 07/24/2021
She arrived on time and stuck to her to schedule—we even finished early! There was no rushing or stress! It was great having someone who works in the business to offer tips and guidance to the wedding! Everyone who had their hair and makeup done absolutely loved it. Both MOB and SOB said it was the best hair and makeup they have had done! This was my first time getting my hair and makeup done and I was SO nervous. Carrie went above and beyond my expectations. I couldn’t be happier with the results! We got married in a VERY windy location and the hair stayed in place ! My makeup did not wash off despite all of my happy tears! Thank you so much Carrie for making my wedding amazing ❤️
Carrie Kacen Makeup & Hair Artistry's reply:Michelle, I am so happy to have been apart of your wedding! Your bridal hair was so fun to create! Your engagement story was breathtaking and so very romantic. ❤️ Many blessings to you both for a happy and healthy lifetime together.

Professional and easy to work with
Carrie was nothing but professional during our time together. She was on time during our hair/makeup trial as well as the wedding day. She worked with me on creating the the makeup and hair look for the big day and was very flexible when we needed to make adjustments. Carrie has a very positive energy and she truly enjoys her work and wants the best for her clients.Sent on 03/28/2021

Super, Super Talented!
Carrie was amazing to have as my hair and make-up artist! I had my hair and make-up done for my senior photos a few years ago and that was a horrible experience - so bad that it made me hesitant to even hire an artist for my wedding day! Because of that experience, Carrie allowed me to come in for a trial run without even hiring her for my wedding yet to see if I would be comfortable. Well, she definitely changed my mind and I hired her that day for my wedding! I don't wear a lot of make-up in general and wanted a very natural look for my wedding and she made that happen. She used colors that wouldn't stick out on my like a sore thumb and really listened to what I wanted. She also did an amazing job with my hair and my bridal party's hair as well. She can look at whatever picture you show her and she can make it happen with no problem. I definitely recommend hiring her for your wedding - you WON'T be disappointed!Sent on 07/13/2021
