It was amazing how fast Carrie was able to do the hair and make-up for three of us for my wedding day. She was able to translate what we said we wanted and photos that we had to make it a reality for each of us. It was such a fun experience and we truly felt like princesses. It was important to me to still look like myself and want my hair and make up to hold up throughout the day, and it did! I had not had airbrushing before and trusted Carrie's recommendation and it turned out great! She came to us and it was very comfortable, felt like she was just one of us girls getting ready. I would love to work with her again for any future special events. I highly recommend her. S
Thank you, Lisa! I am so happy you chose me as your Artist. It was an absolute joy to be apart of your day. :)
I hired Carrie to do my bridal makeup and hair for my wedding day and I am so happy I did! She made my vision come to light and I felt absolutely beautiful on my big day. Carrie is so warm and professional and her prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend Carrie to anyone who is looking to look absolutely stunning on their wedding day.
Thank you so very much, Amber! It was an absolute joy being apart of your special day! :) I loved your chosen look. I can’t wait to see your images.
Carrie was such an incredible blessing to work with on my wedding day! She was not only very responsive to several of my questions, she exceeded by expectation of a worry free day! Carrie was very knowledgable and I trusted all of her recommendations on both my hair and makeup. I highly recommend her services and would definitely hire her again for any beauty needs (such as a haircut :) )!! THANK YOU CARRIE for making me beautiful on my special day!
Thank you for choosing me as your Artist, Aly! It was such a joy to work with you on your very special day! :) I can’t wait to see your pictures.
Carrie was amazing! She made my mother in law feel so special and beautiful on her special day.
Thank you, Samantha! It was such a joy to spend time creating all of your looks. Lisa is a beautiful woman and made a stunning Bride!
Carrie was AMAZING! I first met her in December 2017 for my trail hair and makeup (my wedding was February 8, 2018). She invited me to her private home studio in Sedona, which was beautiful, clean, and peaceful! She did a wonderful job during my trial so I didn't hesitate to book for my wedding! For my wedding I also asked her to do 6 of my family members hair and she quickly accepted without a problem! I got married in a AirBnB in Sedona, which Carrie had no problem traveling to. When she got there, she set up and immediately jumped into hair. She is friendly and caring! She wanted my day to be as perfect for me as I did! I absolutely loved how my hair and makeup turned out! I would recommend her to anyone!
Carrie, thank you so much again! You were amazing!
Bianca, I absolutely adored your wedding party! I loved being apart of your special day and Bridal look. :) You were just stunning!! I can’t wait to see your images. Thanks again for choosing me as your Artist!!
Carrie was great to work with, she always responded to questions very quickly and listened well to what everyone wanted. I am extremely happy with how my hair and makeup turned out for our wedding, and everyone else who got hair and makeup done was pleased as well.
My mom and I did a trial with Carrie a few months before the wedding, which I highly recommend to ensure the styles you think you want are what you actually want! The trial was imperative for me to determine how I wanted my hair the day of. I ended up changing my mind after seeing the style I thought I wanted done with my own hair (which is pretty fine/thin). Carrie was great about providing recommendations and the style I went with in the end looked fabulous!
On the day of, Carrie arrived on-time and prepared. She helped me with the schedule beforehand, so there was no stress the day of. She was kind, polite, and really made the whole experience fun and stress-free. My mother and grandmother got their makeup done and Carrie graciously fixed my grandmother's hair even though I hadn't planned for that. She listened to all of my bridesmaids and they were all pleased with their final look. I couldn't have been happier with how my hair and makeup turned out and it lasted the whole wedding!
I would hire Carrie again without a doubt!
Hannah, thank you so much for choosing me as your Artist! I loved being apart of your special day. :) I love your pictures.
Carrie is incredible! I planned my entire wedding in Sedona from PA, so I had to do a lot of things over the phone and email. Carrie was very responsive from the beginning through email and phone calls. She fit me in for a trial a couple days before my wedding so we could experiment with looks. She was very flexible and professional. She made me feel very relaxed and special on my big day. My hair appointment was very close to the wedding time and I didn't have time to go back to the hotel to get ready. Carrie was over-the-top accommodating and allowed me to get dressed at her studio, which really helped take the stress out of my day. Carrie did such an amazing job on both my hair and makeup, I truly felt beautiful for my big day!! I can't say enough about the part she played in making my day perfect! Thank you, Carrie!
Tracy, it was an absolute pleasure to be apart of your day! Thank you for choosing me as your Artist! :) Many blessings to you both.
My wedding was 10/8/17 and I've been trying to figure out how to express just how much I adored Carrie and her work. I am not a woman who normally feels beautiful. I stressed for months leading up to the wedding about how I'd feel all done up in front of everyone I loved (not a normal thing as I never wear makeup). From the moment I stepped foot into Carrie's house for my trial, I knew I picked the best person to make me feel beautiful on my wedding day. We chatted and laughed and she helped me lower my anxiety when it started to spike. She checked in with me to make sure my hair and makeup were perfect, and even tweaked it when I asked for something slightly different. I cannot thank Carrie enough.
Meghan, thank you dearly for adding photos and your kind words! :) It a joy to create your Bridal look and make your inner beauty radiate! May you both have a very happy life together.
My wedding date was September 24, 2017 and Carrie did my make up for my wedding at the L'auberge de Sedona. I just got my pictures and my make up looks absolutely gorgeous in the pictures. Carrie did a fantastic job, she arrived on time and is very professional and easy to work with. I wish I was getting married again I would definitely use Carrie again for any make up or hair. My hair looked amazing and it stayed up the whole evening!!
Thank you so much for choosing me as your Artist! I loved being apart of your special day!
I was so pleased with my look for my wedding day. Carrie was professional and really helped me get the exact look I wanted without a trial run. She nailed the pictures and looks I was going for and I felt absolutely beautiful. I would use her again and again! Great attitude, fun to work with, and amazing at what she does! Thank you Carrie!
Thank you! Kara, it was an absolute joy to work with you on your elopement! Congratulations to you and Matt!
We recently hired Carrie to do bridal hair and makeup for myself, two bridesmaids and mother of the bride. I had a makeup trial the week before which was a great starting place.,I gave her a picture of what I liked and she did exactly what I asked for, only problem was, I realized I hated the look on myself. Haha! So we determined what I wanted to do different and come the wedding day, she was amazing, she gave me the exact look that I had envisioned!!! I also gave her a picture of the hairstyle I wanted and she literally gave me the hair in the picture! I am so happy I found her. I would spend the rest of my life recommending her services! Thank you so much Carrie! Xoxo
Jamie, thank for choosing me as your Artist! It was wonderful spending the time with your Bridal party. You were definitely a Greek Goddess Bride. :) May you both have a life full of joy and happiness!
Carrie was fantastic! I was so nervous about getting my hair done because I have short thin hair and have been disappointed so many times in the past. She listened to what I wanted and did a beautiful job! She was calm, comfortable, and very professional. I highly recommend her.
Erin, thank you for choosing me as your Artist! I loved working with you!!
Carrie was absolutely fantastic. She truly knows what she is doing. I trusted her completely with my wedding look without any trial runs before the big day. She did not disappoint one bit! She made me feel the most beautiful I ever have. I loved my hair and make up!! I would 100% recommend her.
Chelsea, thank you so much for letting me be creative with your bold and glamorous look! It was such a pleasure working with you.
My best friend decided to elope and get married in Sedona. I am a hairstylist myself and when I found out she was going to do her own hair I decided I would find her someone as a wedding gift. I came across the Wedding Wire while searching for freelance stylists. Carrie had great reviews and was quick to respond. I knew after seeing her website and instagram that she would be perfect. She did such a beautiful job and was also super sweet. I would recommend her to anyone.
Alex, thank you so very much! I appreciate your review especially coming from another Hairstylist. You were such a generous friend to gift your Best friend a bridal service.
I booked Carrie very last minute for my wedding and was super nervous about how things would turn out because we didn't get to meet or do a trial. And also I'm super picky, I hardly ever give 5* ratings. To start with, She was super accommodating. I changed the plan a lot, adding people and arranging times last minute. She showed up early, very proffesional and she killed it! She did all my bridesmaids hair and makeup and even made my daughters super thin hair look beyond amazing. She also worked on my sister who has down syndrome. She does not like to have her hair done at all and Carrie was so patient and kind to her. She made all of our hair look even better then the pics I had as inspiration. Amazing amazing amazing.
Victoria, thank you for choosing me as your Artist for your wedding day! I really enjoyed working with your family and bridal party, such special people. May you and Gio having a blessed life together. Thanks again!!
Wow! Carrie was incredible. We booked Carrie a bit late and had anywhere between 4-8 women for a surprise destination THEMED wedding. She was calm, cool, and fun. We wound up having all 8 women want hair and make up and she said YES to everyone. No one was rushed, everyone LOVED their look and we were a total hit at the wedding. I am so grateful for Carrie. We will have pictures from this (where we feel great) to last us a lifetime. Total pro! Thank you Carrie! xoxo
Rachel, thank you dearly for this heart warming review! I was blessed to be able to be so dramatically creative and see all you women come alive with another for an amazing celebration!! My honor truly to have worked with you ALL!
Absolutely amazing!! Jasmine and Carrie were so professional and knowledgeable, an absolute pleasure to work with for my special day. They were so flexible with my requests and neurotic personality!
Thank you Carrie and Jasmine!!!!!!
Our absolute pleasure, Danielle!
Carrie did an excellent job! The energy and passion that Carrie has for beauty is clear. I had two maybe three inspiration photos and she took one glance and knew exactly what I wanted! I had a trial with her and that was completely worth it. I got to preview my exact look before the wedding day which took away stress the day off. A trial is highly recommend. Fast forward to the day of the wedding! Carrie was prompt in her little fiat; she came with so much positive energy! Even when a problem arose, Carrie was able to solve the problem quickly and still managed to finish my hair and makeup in time. She made me feel so beautiful and natural. Anyone looking for a makeup and hair artist who is dedicated to her work needs to book with Carrie Kacen!
We did a destination wedding at Sedona, Arizona. I am so glad I chose Carrie to do my engagement photos and wedding day. She is very friendly and cheerful and she describes everything before she does anything. This helped me a lot since I get a little figidity. She created the look I wanted for my wedding day and I felt so beautiful. She does great work and would highly recommend.
Andrea, thank you so very much! I really enjoyed being apart of your special time. Thanks for choosing me. :)
Carrie is fantastic, and I am so happy she did hair and makeup for my wedding. I only booked a few days out, and it was a destination wedding so we arrived in AZ the day before with no time for a consultation. My dress is antique lace, I wore my veil loose without a comb and I'm very pale, so I was worried that might present a challenge. Carrie is just so professional and experienced, she knew exactly how to pull my look together. She took a few of my hair and makeup inspiration pics and came up with something perfect. I love how I look in my pictures! Carrie also did hair and makeup for my sister and my friend, and they both looked gorgeous and were super pleased. We had such a nice morning getting ready, Carrie is so much fun to talk to and has so much knowledge of her craft.
Ariana, it was my honor to be apart of your wedding day with such a unique dress! I loved making you all feel gorgeous! :)
Amazing experience with Carrie! Extremely professional and her experience and talent shows. I was worried about looking too "made up" for my big day since I had never had my makeup done before but Carrie made sure I looked classic, timeless and natural (exactly what I had requested)! Side note- my lashes lasted all night, through the next day for a day after wedding shoot which also deserves to be noted!! :) I HIGHLY recommend Carrie!
Thank you so much, Rachel!! It was such an honor and joy to be apart of your special day. :)
Carrie did an absolutely fantastic job! She did hair or make-up for my mother, sister, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law, and for me and we all loved it. I have never looked so beautiful thanks to her help (seriously!). Carrie was so responsive up to the wedding and she was very flexible when we added last minute requests. Just all around awesome person and awesome service :) I would 100% recommend her to anyone. No complaints from this newly-wed!
Lexi, thank you for choosing me to be apart of your wedding day! I loved working with you and your family. :)
Carrie did the hair and makeup for my son's girlfriend the day of her surprise engagement. My son's girlfriend , Shelby, thought she was a model for a professional advertising shoot. Carrie was in on the surprise and did a fantastic job with her hair, knowing #1 -she would be wearing a headset during a helicopter flight and #2 she would cry! Shelby's makeup was perfect, the hair made it through a helicopter flight, hair tossing for the photo shoot, the surprise engagement and dinner afterward. My son insists that Carrie do the hair and make-up for their future wedding!
One of the best secrets I was able to keep! It was a true joy to be apart of life changing surprise for them both. :)
Carrie was an excellent hair and make up artist. Not only does she have a great eye she is also a pleasure to spend time with. She made everything on my big day run smoothly and perfect. She took great care to be sure that I was making choices about what I wanted and that she was able to execute those choices. The day of she brought along an extra hand and we could not have asked for a better team. The morning of my wedding was so fun and relaxed drinking campaign with my sisters and best friends getting our hair and make up done. It was the perfect start to the best day of my life and Carrie made that possible. :D
Highly recommended. Carrie did our hair and makeup for my wedding in October 2016 at Agave of Sedona. I was so happy with how everything turned out and truly felt beautiful for my wedding day. Carrie was a pleasure to work with. She is very professional, calm, friendly and great at what she does!
