Talented stylists! Amazing results!
Katie and the Modern Muse team are amazing! They made my wedding day even more special! Katie stepped in after the hair stylist I planned to work with wasn't able to make it. The trial was so useful to understand the range of makeup styles that could be used.Sent on 11/26/2018
Katie is super easy to work with - reliable, responsive, and professional. She was so friendly with the bridal party, mom, and mother-in-law and made all of us feel at ease.
Would totally recommend Modern Muse for anyone looking to feel and look beautiful on their special day!

We had a destination wedding in Austin and I was not able to get down to do a hair and makeup trial until literally the week of my wedding. I found Katie through the recommendation of a friend and I am so, so glad I did. I'm actually sad I don't get to see her 3 times this week! :) We did my hair and make up trial on a Wednesday and since I am not an expert in either field I let her do her thing and was so thrilled with the results - there was not a change to be made! Friday she did my hair and makeup for my rehearsal dinner - a little sassier and a bright red lip and I was off! Saturday she was my saving grace. She and her team had a million members of my entourage to work on and they did so with grace and an amazing attitude. Whenever I felt overwhelmed, Katie would notice and make me laugh and put me at ease. She helped make my "pretty, pretty princess day" so great - I am completely convinced I will never look better! My makeup and hair lasted all night - probably because I told her I wanted to dance until my face melted off. Thank you so much for everything Katie!!Sent on 02/06/2016

Katie and her team were wonderful beauty stylists on the day of my daughter's wedding. Katie was attentive and flexible to coming to our home the very early morning of a noon wedding ceremony. She and her assistants worked efficiently and good naturedly amidst small children underfoot and lots of excitement in the home. My daughter, the bride was pampered, as were her sister and sister in law...her matrons of honor. They all looked exquisite, and were so happy with their hair and makeup. Katie was very responsive in the months leading up to the wedding , whenever questions or scheduling tweaks occurred. Her personality is warm and caring, as well as assuring and confident The value for service was excellent. We are huge fans!Sent on 12/04/2015
