FaceForwardBridal - The Best!!!
Cara was incredible. Being that I was eloping, I was nervous about having to work with people I hadn't met before. Cara instantly put me at ease and had a personality that was like an old friend. She was calming, assuring, and everything I needed. Plus she did an INCREDIBLE job and did my hair and makeup exactly like I had wanted. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I can't recommend her enough.Sent on 12/11/2018

I contacted Cara for my son’s wedding in Monterey. She styled my daughter in law and me for the big day. We sent photos ahead of time for hairstyles. Cara communicated with us throughout our booking, she arrived on time and had our styling finished on time. The make-up was perfect for each of us. My hair did not lose a strand even through all the dancing. Cars is extremely personable and we had a terrific time with her!!Sent on 12/08/2017

I cannot say enough about my experience with Cara! From my first communication via email and phone to the moment that she left the venue, I was blown away & beyond happy! I live on the east coast, so I was unable to do a trial. As a bride, that's certainly scary to begin with! I had a small intimate wedding, so I was only looking to have hair and makeup done for myself. However, with Cara's expertise and reassurance along the way, her open communication during the whole process and super fast responsiveness, I looked and felt more amazing than I could have expected on the most important day of my life! I was so at ease the whole time she did my hair and makeup! She also styled my mother's hair, which turned out great! And to add to everything, JUST 2 DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT--she even agreed to fit in styling the groom's mother's hair (change of plans so it didn't end up happening, but still!!) I would highly recommend Cara to any bride wanting to look and feel their best on their big day! THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN!!! :)Sent on 06/23/2018
