    Ky is awesome and super nice! My wedding is in March 2016 and I can't wait for Ky to style my hair and my wedding party for my big day. I recently had my trial and I LOVED my hair and it was just a rough run. LOL! Ky listens to you and really goes out of her way to make sure she understands the look for your wedding day. She is patient and tries several looks and tweaks as necessary until she gets the perfect style. She also makes fabulous hair accessories. If I hadn't already booked a MUA for sure I would have booked Ky to do my makeup as well.

    Natural-Looking Makeup and Hair Styling that Withstood a Rain Storm!

    I worked with Ky and Cynthia from Modern Green Goddess to provide hair styling and makeup services for my bridesmaids, my mother, mother in law and myself on my wedding day (May 2019). Throughout the whole process, Ky was a consummate professional and put me at ease, answering all of the questions that I had during the year leading up to the wedding and assuaging any anxiety that I had. I don't wear a lot of makeup in everyday life, so it was really important to me that I still looked like myself (albeit, a fancier version of myself), and Ky delivered. I am so happy with the results - my makeup and crazy curly hair, which usually frizzes up at any sign of humidity, stayed in place the whole night, even after we got caught in a rain storm during our photos. My bridesmaids and moms all looked beautiful and Ky earned high praise from my mother, who was possibly more nervous about her styling than I was. Beyond the actual hair and makeup, Ky, Cynthia and her assistant were so fun to chat with (Ky had to start styling at 7 am, due to the number of people in my party, so we ended up spending 6 hours together). They are wonderful and I cannot recommend them enough!

    Ky did such a phenomal job on my hair and makeup! I stressed that i wanted a very natural look (similar to how i wear my makeup) and she blew me away! She did all of my bridesmaids hir as well. Ky only uses all natural products, so she even got the most stubborn hair (mine) to hold a style. Very impressed!!
