Paper Dolls Wedding Hair & Makeup went above and beyond my expectations before, and on, my wedding day. I was a bit overwhelmed when it came to planning this part, as I had a very large bridal party, and needed day-of services for 13 ladies! As soon as I spoke to Carrie on the phone during my search, I knew that Paper Dolls was right for us – she was confident that her and a team of 3 others could beautify all of us in the 4-hour time frame we would have. Planning my wedding from a distance, I was only in town once for a quick trip during the process, and Carrie came to my hotel room for my trial! With one picture I had saved for my hairstyle vision, and my instructions of “natural and light, but enhanced” for makeup, she instantly created the absolute perfect look for me. On the wedding day, her and her team arrived promptly to our rental house, set up their stations in record speed, and had all of our services done AHEAD of schedule. They even accommodated last minute extra services and touch-ups for everyone; the whole morning was absolutely stress-free thanks to them, and each of the ladies looked stunning from the time they were done-up, until the last song of the night. I could not have been more pleased with Paper Dolls and would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride! Carrie made me feel picture perfect on my wedding day, and feel so thankful for them each time I see a new wedding picture – these ladies are amazing!Sent on 04/21/2016

I knew from my initial call with Carrie, that Paper Dolls Wedding Hair & Makeup was the perfect fit. And I was right. Carrie did my hair and makeup for both my rehearsal dinner and wedding. I always get nervous to get my hair and makeup done because I don't really deviate from my normal routine often, but Carrie immediately put me at ease. She is a true professional and helped me pinpoint what I wanted (I barely even had pictures to provide direction) and proceeded to absolutely nail it. Not to mention, she's just an awesome person. The time I spent getting ready flew by because we just chit-chatted the entire time. I had a massive bridal party and she and her team handled it like the pros they are. They got everyone's hair and makeup done within the allocated time (me, 9 bridesmaids, mom, mother in law and flower girl!). Even with some serious rain and dancing on our big day, my makeup was somehow fully intact even the next day (I didn't want to wash it off ha!). A big thank you to Carrie and her team! I would highly recommend Paper Dolls to anyone!Sent on 04/28/2019

Carrie did my hair and make up for me and my two bridesmaids and it was amazing. She also kept right on schedule and was so fun to work with!Sent on 01/22/2019
If you want it done right and beautifully, then Paper Dolls is an absolute must for your hair and makeup. We love Carrie, and she does our (Wanda and Mell Bell's) hair and makeup for our big events. She has done most of our mellBella clients as well, and everyone has only great things to say about her and her work. She can work with all skin types/tones and hair too. It's rare to find someone who excels at both hair and makeup.
Carrie is amazing. One of my FAVORITE hair pros. She comes highly recommended, and I personally recommend her to all my brides whether in the upstate or near the beach. She is so creative and fantastically talented. She has done the onsite hair for a ton of weddings (& bridal/engagement sessions) this year and I will continue to sing her praises. She can do more with a bobby pin...she will whip up the hair of your dreams so fast, all you have to do is remember your vows. Call her...yesterday!!!
