Carrie did my hair and makeup for my anniversary photo shoot when my husband and I were on vacation in Sedona. Carrie did a wonderful job! My hair and makeup looked amazing! Besides, we made a great connection and worked together on two styled shoots in Chicago and Sedona (I am a photographer). I highly recommend Carrie to anyone who would love a wonderful experience and a great quality work. She has a very friendly and warm personality and so much fun to be around!Sent on 10/15/2018

I can’t say enough about Carrie, her work, and her professionalism under pressure. When we decided to elope, Carrie came recommended and was sure to be there even though we were marrying more than 1,000 miles from home. We met at a hotel for her to do my hair and makeup as well as my daughter’s. She started with my daughter’s hair and about halfway through her makeup the power went out. I became extremely nervous as the rain poured down in Sedona and we were told an entire grid was without power, just hours before we were set to get married. Carrie just kept on going and assured me that everything would be fine. She proceeded to do my hair and makeup in the dark, with just the light that was coming through the raindrops. Just as she was putting the finishing touches on, the power came back on. And in the end, she had done an amazing job!! I absolutely loved my look and even more loved my hair that she didn’t use a single heated tool on. She is amazing!!Sent on 08/14/2019
