Highly recommend Kara!

It was such a pleasure to work with Kara Hess! I chose Kara as the MUA for my wedding after seeing the beautiful and natural work that she does. As a bride that does not wear makeup, ever, it was really important for me to look and feel myself. I wanted my features to be enhanced without truly altering my appearance, and most importantly, did not want to feel cakey. Kara nailed it! I loved the way I looked and felt all day long. My bridal party and the mothers also raved about her style and service. I highly recommend working with Kara for your wedding too!

Love LOVE Kate and her team

I cannot thank Kate and her team enough for the amount of compassion and flexibility when it came to our originally scheduled 4/4/20 wedding. Rescheduling for July and then finally celebrating in October, Kate was able to accommodate every time! First off, Kate and her team's work is beautiful. I'm not a fan of heavy makeup and what I got was far from a heavy look! My look was completely natural, but elevated! The airbrush and mink lashes are a must! I would say the same for all the ladies that got their makeup and hair done. Second, Kate and her team are fun! I honestly felt like they were part of our crew! I was so impressed with Studio 8 that when I'm in town, I plan to visit for non bridal services :)

Love love loved my hair

Kate and her staff were absolutely amazing!! I loved my hair and makeup so much and could not have asked for it to be any better! Kate worked with me to make sure all 7 of my bridesmaids, and 3 mother getting their hair and makeup would be done in time to not mess up our timeline. Our photographer was amazed when she finished perfectly on time! I HIGHLY recommend Studio 8 for your wedding hair and makeup!
