Karla was one of the best decisions I made in my wedding planning, hands down. I found her through wedding wire and went for her based on these reviews and price. She is AWESOME.Sent on 09/15/2014
When I had my trial run and brought some pictures of roughly what I wanted, she NAILED it. No tweaks, just able to create exactly the feel I wanted. (And I am a fairly picky, detail-oriented person.) She was able to create the exact look I wanted on her first shot.
On my wedding day (Aug 2014), she showed up on time and was ready to go. She did beautiful and stunning up & part-up hairdos for my bridesmaids, and flawlessly recreated for me what she had done at my trial months before. Plus, she used really high quality makeup that lasted the whole night. I was total waterworks, but my makeup held through.
Karla is responsive, sweet - and as far as pricing goes for hair & makeup (I got married in SF and had major sticker shock) - she was amazing value and much more reasonable than other options I'd found. Karla is a GREAT pick - and definitely so grateful I found her!

Karla was super awesome, and I'm so glad I had her for my wedding! Not only was she nice and funny to chat with but she made me look beautiful!Sent on 08/26/2012
We had done a trial a couple months before and discussed the general look. She was great about hearing my opinions and making it work based off the look I wanted. I had changed my mind a bit thereafter on the look, but she was able to make it work based off the trial and our discussion.
Also she was super flexible about the schedule. Due to some last minute details about the venue, I wasn't able to give her a final prep location until a couple weeks before, but she was easy going about it.
My overall 5 star rating is highly based off the fact that 1) she knew her makeup and hair! I can be very particular at times, and she hit a home run! The style was right on point! 2) she was super flexible and accommodating in regards to time and payment 3) she helped make the overall experience relaxing! I've heard horror stories where the makeup artist flakes last minute, and Karla went out of her way leading up to the event to let me know she was fully committed 4) she's actually quite awesome to talk with, which makes the whole event less awkward/formal

I booked Karla and her team for my wedding party for hair and makeup, total of 7 ladies including myself. Karla and her team were wonderful to work with and did a fabulous job with everyone's hair and makeup. I had my girls choose their own hairstyle for the wedding and each one was satisfied with how they looked. Everyone looked gorgeous! Thanks Karla and team for helping to make our day fabulous!Sent on 07/05/2012
I've worked with Karla on numerous occasions over several years. She is one of only a few makeup and hair professionals I trust with my Clients (boudoir and wedding). I allow my Clients to view and choose the artists they would like to work with from my contacts list, and more often than not, Karla is one of them.
