    Great service and perfect wedding hair/makeup! Cati was easy to work with and so fun spending the day with while getting ready for our wedding. Definitely recommend!

    I was very nervous about hair and makeup for my wedding since I generally don't do anything special with my everyday look, and don't know anything about hair or makeup! However, as soon as I started communicating with Cati I felt like I'd found a good fit. She was very flexible with trying a more natural look that I would feel comfortable with, and she really helped to put me at ease. When we did the trial, we tried a few different looks and she was willing to work with me until I was totally happy with the result. I thought it would be hard to find something that worked, but she seemed to figure out what I was going for before I did, and I was sold! On the wedding day itself, she and her two assistants did an amazing job with me, my bridesmaids, my mom, and my mother-in-law. We had a big group but finished early, and she'd built in enough room in the schedule that we didn't feel rushed or stressed while getting ready. Additionally, she and her team were fun to hang out with, and really clicked with me and my friends, so it felt natural to have them there while we all got ready. Everyone in my wedding party commented on how happy they were with their looks, and with the overall experience of having Cati and her team involved in the wedding day. I couldn't have been happier with how my look turned out either, and I was really impressed with how great I still looked at the after party! In any case, I couldn't recommend Cati enough. She's very easy to work with and very skilled at what she does. I will certainly recommend her to all of my friends as well, so hopefully we'll get to work together again! :)

    From my first inquiry, I knew selecting Cati for my wedding hair and make up was a great choice! She made me feel very comfortable during my trial appointment -- open to exploring as many looks as needed until we found the perfect style to compliment my dress and match my vision (which didn't take long because she's so good!). She really transformed my look -- so much so that I felt like a radiant movie star during my entire wedding celebration. My hair was perfect and my makeup has never looked better -- I still felt like myself just the most glamourous version ever. She did the make-up for two of my bridesmaids as well and they looked great. She used quality products and was very professional. She even accommodated my request to meet up after our wedding photos for a touch-up session. Thank you, Cati!

    Cati was fantastic. My photographs exceeded any expectations I had. Her familiarity with my photographer's style was a definite plus. Cati was incredibly reasonable, prompt, professional and an overall delight!

    I could not be happier with the way my makeup turned out on my wedding day!!! Cati did a great job with listening to what I wanted and then exceeded my expectations with her makeup application. So many people commented on how nice my makeup looked and I am 100% happy that I booked Cati for my wedding. Cati also did a great job on my mom's and sisters makeup. She was so nice and understanding through the whole process...from my makeup trial, to the day of my wedding, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for makeup application for a special event!! Thanks Cati!!!

    I travelled from Ireland to New York for my wedding and after much Internet searching for a hair / make- up artist I found Cati and loved how her work looked. I was a little apprehensive as my day approached having never met Cati or had a trial but I soon realised my fears were unfounded.
    Cati arrived at my hotel as arranged and I discussed the look I wanted for my day. Cati took it from there and all I can say the finished look was WOW. I was thrilled.. I loved both my hair and make up and I still look back at the pictures today love them.
    Cati was a true professional and I would not hesitate in recommending her.

    Having our wedding in NYC was amazing but organising it from Scotland was another thing! Cati was very responsive with her emails from day one... She done myself and my daughters hair and makeup for our special day....she was able to come to our hotel room and took no money until the day... She arrived on time which really put our minds at rest ...it was our first experience in having this luxury and she was a real professional bringing all her own makeup and materials she even brought her air machine so that our makeup would stay on longer as it was over 90degrees on that day and our venue was Central Park ...she really thought of everything and allowed us our input as well in the finished result ... I sent her various pictures of the style I wanted via email before we arrived in NYC..so all in all she done a fantastic job and I would truly recommend Cati to anyone looking for a true professional with a warm and caring manner as well.... We will always remember you Catithankyou from the bottom of my heart! Patricia Dobie xxxxx
