    Absolutely incredible!!

    It’s hard to put into words how amazing Kelly is… I booked her (and Alicia) to do hair and makeup for my wedding in October. I also hired Kelly to do spray tanning a few days before my wedding as well. Unfortunately due to COVID I wasn’t able to have a trial beforehand so I was definitely nervous on the day of without having any idea of how it would go but I was completely blown away. My entire bridal party looked incredible and I have never felt so beautiful in my life… It’s hard to put into words how I felt because beautiful doesn’t truly describe it! I was sad to see them leave when they were finished and can only hope that I get to work with them again one day. Kelly and Alicia are beyond good… they are exceptional! If you’re not sure what to do for beauty services or hesitant about booking them, stop searching now because I promise you won’t be disappointed!

    Amazing!!!

    Kelly did an amazing job for my wedding!!! Communication was always fast & professional. I was hesitant about hiring a makeup artist, as I usually don’t wear makeup everyday & the times I’ve gotten it professionally done it was just way too over the top…. But with Kelly, she was amazing, she really stays true to the natural beauty & enhances your best features. She really listened to what I wanted & made me feel so beautiful. She also did makeup for my mom & it was incredible! She made her look 20 years younger it was insane & mom was so happy!
    I 10000% reccomend hiring Kelly for any makeup services!!
