THE hair stylist you NEED
Sent on 05/19/2021
Katlyn is simply amazing. I first heard about the Itty Bitty Boutique from a friend who is also getting married. After reviewing all the hairstyles she can do and all the advice from her blog, I decided she was the right fit for me. I found there weren’t many other hair stylists who give advice and blog. I also haven’t colored my hair in 3 years since moving back to VB because I couldn’t really find anyone who was a brunette specialist. All the social medial posts give love to blondes (love my blondes) but it was hair to see who could do brunettes. It was getting closer and closer to the wedding so I was scared someone would make my hair too brassy or too blonde. Then after seeing that Katlyn was also a brunette specialist, I thought to myself perfect!! And I’m so glad I trusted by gut. I loved how she took my inspiration photos and gave me her honest opinion. I loved how there are lighter strands, but it still looked like me. Because at the end of the day in wedding photos, I don’t want to look back 10 years later thinking who is that person? My hair color enhanced my features but still looked natural. Wedding day. OH MAN. Once again she blew my expectations out of the water. I didn’t end up doing a hair trial due to the pandemic and extra expenses just weren’t there. She literally made my hair look like my inspiration photo THE DAY OF DEAD ON. No hair trial. I loved how she could tell I wasn’t 110% there and read me and asked what I wanted to change. There was this one strand on the back of my head out of place. (Yes I know that sounds ridiculous), but to me I loved how Katlyn could read me rather than what I was saying. That’s what I LOVE about Katlyn is that she really listens to her clients likes and dislikes. For example, my cousin never gets an updo because she is self conscious about her ears because they stick out. Katlyn gave her exactly the updo she wanted and for the first time she actually loved her hair up without being self conscious. My mom too. My mom wanted to get waves in her hair but nothing too crazy, just some texture. And man Katlyn DELIVERED. I also went to her on the wedding day to ask her honest opinions about things because I know she always gives it. I’m now forever coming to Katlyn to get my hair colored or styled. Thank you Katlyn for all you have done. CANNOT WAIT FOR MORE. Book her!!

Lovely! Please book!
I cannot get it through people's heads enough how much respect I have for Katlyn and the awesome business that she is growing with her own two hands. I scheduled a bridal trial a few months out from my wedding and came in hyperventilating and terrified because of my pretty dry skin and out of control curly hair, and Katyln didn't even flinch - she sat me down and talked me through everything and made sure that I remembered that this was MY BIG DAY! She explained every step of the beauty process and answered the silly questions I had while watching her do them. There was a moment when she'd asked me to pull down my mask so that she could do the rest of my makeup, and her eyes bugged out and I instantly shrank because I thought that it was going to be bad but then she shouted "YOU ARE SO PRETTY!" and continued to compliment me as she did my makeup, and I just teared up!!! It was a very personal thing to hear someone outside of my close family and my partner say that to me and actually mean it. Her excitement, her openness, and the five-billion-and-one amazing skills that she has with a few hair products and her makeup bag are just a handful of the reasons why I STRONGLY RECOMMEND booking Katlyn for any beauty services - especially weddings. Also a huge shout out to Nikki, her manager, who is just as fabulous and easy to work with. THANK YOU!Sent on 05/10/2021
