Kim Guiley did my hair and makeup for my October 2014 wedding. She also did my maid of honor's hair.
I first got in touch with Kim after finding her here on WeddingWire because I liked her simple, natural approach to beauty. I am so very glad I found her because she was a real pleasure to work with and I loved how my hair and makeup looked!
Kim was very thoughtful, communicative, and conscientious throughout the process. She made me feel very comfortable at the trial - she really listened and understood the look I wanted. And she is friendly and genuinely fun to hang out with! I had a great time chatting and getting to know her during the trial and on the morning of my wedding.
Not only that, she did a really wonderful job on my hair and makeup. I felt beautiful while still myself on my wedding day. Plus my hair and makeup held up to a pretty epic dance party!
I very highly recommend Kim Guiley to anyone looking for a great hair and makeup artist to do a lovely, fresh, natural look for their wedding day.

Kim is amazing, you should stop reading other reviews and move forward with her, without hesitation! She was recommended by my photograhper Susannah Gill and what a find! I worked with her for my October 2014 wedding. She was easy to work with, highly responsive, professional and very invested in making things perfect for my event. Prior to our trial she prompted me to send her hair and make-up pictures so that we both could begin to get an idea of what I wanted for the big day. She was communicative and prompt, both for the trial and my wedding day. She created a calm, relaxing environment during both sessions and it was a pleasure to work with her. She did my hair and make-up, as well as my MOH, and even styled the hair of my MOH's husband when he forgot his hair gel on the big day! So awesome. She was very open to suggestion to ensure that the look was the way I wanted it. I received so many comments that my eyes looked so "big and beautiful" and that my skin looked "fresh and dewy," and my hair was fantastic. Kim also works very quickly with a beautiful result; she clearly knows her craft. I have no constructive feedback for Kim (and I'm a harsh critic); she's just that good. I made this review anonymous for privacy reasons, but if you reach out to Kim, she knows she can use me as a reference!

Kim was an absolute DREAM to work with. She went above and beyond during our trial to do my hair and makeup exactly how I wanted it for the wedding, and then gave me a completely different look to wear to my bridal shower that day so my hair wouldn't be the same for both events.
The day of the wedding, I had planned to get ready with all of my girlfriends, but there was so much last minute stuff to do that it was just me and Kim for most of the time before the ceremony. I was totally freaking out and she completely put me at ease. Not to mention that she made me look and feel like a beautiful princess for my special day.
I would enthusiastically recommend Kim for all hair and makeup needs for your next special event. Plus she has an amazing etsy shop you should be sure to check out if you have little ones. https://www.etsy.com/shop/HeartofHazel

From the first time I met Kim, I could tell she was very talented and professional. She takes her craft very seriously and is very good at what she does. Kim is poised, easy going and personable which in turn puts her clients at ease when working with her. I highly recommend Kim to everyone...She can get the job done well!!
