The best experience ever

To start- I’m a crier and my hair and makeup lasted through hours of on and off tears, the winds of the Palso Verdes Cliffs, and hours of dancing on my wedding day.

Working with Karen was such a great decision. During the trial, I was able to get a feel for how I would look on my wedding day. When I wanted to tweak some things, Karen went with it and delivered exactly what I wanted. When I had to change which of my party was doing hair and makeup, adding and taking off services, she was flexible and patient. Karen is so sweet and easy to work with. It was truly the best experience!

Extremely talented and kind makeup artist!

It was so wonderful working with Karen and her team! She is extremely talented and worked magic! I felt both glammed up but still like myself! She was very patient and kind to us through the chaos of the day—I would highly recommend her to all brides in the Southern California area!:)

Loved Karen!

I am so glad that I booked Karen to do my hair and makeup for my wedding day. Karen was accommodating, punctual, professional, and sweet. My maid of honor and I were both very happy with our looks for the entire night. I flew into LA for my wedding, so I didn't have time to do a trial. Based on her portfolio, I was confident that Karen would be able to recreate the hair and makeup of pictures I provided. She nailed it! Thank you, Karen!!

Karen Lee and her team (she brought along Penny, Angela & Cathy on the day of the wedding) was the wedding hair & make up team that did my sister's wedding last April. She was by far the best hair & make up artist person that I have worked with in my experience. Before my sister's wedding in April, my sister, mom and I all went to Karen to get our hair & make up done for our holiday family photo shoot. Karen really manages to make you feel and look beautiful. Her kindness, easy going personality, ability to put you at ease, make you feel comfortable, promptness, quick response time, reliability and efforts to please you and make sure to achieve what you want speaks volumes of her professionalism. She was always open to suggestions and explained to everyone everything she was using to achieve the look we wanted. She was extremely patient with us and so was the rest of her team that she brought along for the day. Her skills are just flawless all the way around. She was just so amazing with what she did and was a great person to have around. She was also very professional in answering all my questions. Being a professional in the wedding industry, I know how important it is to have a trusted vendor to handle your hair and make up. The hair & make up simply completes the look of the bride that then sets the tone of the day. I will continue to refer my brides to see Karen Lee for their hair & make up needs. Thank you Karen Lee!!

I met Karen at another wedding we DJ'd. She did the make-up for the bride to be on her special day. Karen does exceptional make-up and I would highly recommend her for anyone needing her services. I was also fortunate to provide our DJ/MC service for her wedding.
