I cannot say enough amazing things about Kathleen and her team. From the trial, she understood what I wanted even when I didn't have the words to describe it, and made sure that I spoke up about how I wanted my hair and makeup done--and not what others wanted to see in me or thought how I should look on my wedding day. Her hair and makeup skills are amazing and all my girls and I LOVED her work! Additionally, Kathleen's team was very patient with my bridal party, mom, and mother-in-law about how they wanted their hair and makeup to look, and made them look even better than their inspiration photos! One of the many important moments I really did appreciate was when I was questioning the amount of makeup I had on--she had my photographer take a picture of my makeup and show me on camera how I looked--and once I saw, all my doubts immediately left my mind. Amidst all the wedding day chaos of vendors arriving and whatnot, Kathleen's professionalism and calming demeanor kept myself in check as she has clearly done this for years, and I don't know how I would've gotten ready without her.Sent on 08/19/2018

Racquel is awesome!
I used Kathleen Benjamin for hair for myself, my bridal party, and my mother for my wedding day. Kathleen was not available for my date, but Racquel was, and she was absolutely spectacular! For my hair trial, I brought my hair accessory and she tried several different styles I had in mind so I could find a style that suited my face and my gown. I felt as though both Kathleen and Racquel understood my vision and had great suggestions for me. They suggested I get subtle highlights and a gloss before the big day, as I was using a braided style and the extra dimension would make the braid pop. They were exactly right!Sent on 08/30/2019
About 2 weeks before my wedding, one of my bridesmaids had to drop out due to a medical issue. Kathleen was extremely understanding and didn't charge me for this bridesmaids hair, despite already signing the contract. That alone is a reason I'd work with Kathleen and her team again.
On the day of the wedding, Racquel arrived and was extremely professional. She rolled with the punches and worked well with my makeup artist. She even told me that she didn't think the trial was the best result, so she tweaked a few things to give me the volume I was requesting. My hair turned out perfectly and I got so many compliments! I would 100% recommend Kathleen and her artists for your big day.

Kathleen and her staff were amazing. My daughter felt so pampered on her wedding day. She made my granddaughters feel like little princesses. I loved my hair and makeup also. Thank you so much for a great beginning to a beautiful day.Sent on 08/26/2019

Bat Mitzvah hair
We were able to get a stylist in my home for a 6:45am appointment for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah with just a few weeks notice. Tea was prompt, professional and ensured that my daughter and I were both happy with our styles. Would definitely recommend!Sent on 08/26/2019

From my initial trial through my wedding day, Kathleen did a wonderful job making sure everything was as stress-free as possible. I am very particular about my hair and she far exceeded my expectations! My bridesmaids and I all LOVED our hair! I am so happy to have workedSent on 08/27/2019

Wedding Hair - for the Bride!
My hair looked amazing from the start to finish of the wedding and into the after party! The ladies even helped my sisters and bridesmaids with both my veil and my flower clip, which was VERY helpful! I’d HIGHLY recommend Kathleen Benjamin On-Site- Hair & Make Up over and over again!Sent on 08/20/2019

Quality Service for a great price!
Kathleen was extremely responsive during the planning process. Dani and Sara did our hair/makeup for the day of our wedding! Both women were personable, organized and allowed each member of the bridal party to be an active member of the getting ready process. They listened to feedback, offered suggestions and did an incredible job! I could not be happier with the way my hair/makeup turned out!Sent on 06/10/2019

Wonderful Hair and Makeup
Kathleen was easy to work with from day 1. During the hair/makeup trial she made me feel special and really listened to what I had to say. On the day of wedding we had a very early call time and each of her assistants was right on time. Kathleen provided 2 hair women and 2 makeup women (including herself). They were all so nice! My Bridesmaids all looked beautiful and I was extremely impressed. My hair and makeup (both done by Kathleen herself) were perfect and lasted all day. We got ready at my mom’s house and everything was very clean when they left. I would highly recommend Kathleen and her team for your future wedding or event.Sent on 07/01/2019

Kathleen was all of the above! I had a lot of girls in my bridal party and we had an add on two weeks before which she was completely accommodating and did a fabulous job. She was a comforting presence on a hectic morning. We highly recommend her.Sent on 09/01/2018

Favorite hair/makeup experience!
Kathleen was very responsive in setting up my appointment, with fairly short notice on my end. Ida was the artist for my wedding day and was really wonderful. I've had my hair and makeup done for previous weddings, but this was by far the best result! I was so happy with everything. Thank you!Sent on 02/15/2019

Kathleen and her team were so wonderful to work with. We had an open line of communication throughout the entire planning process. On the day of our wedding they were on time, upbeat and professional, listening to everyone’s suggestions about how they wanted their hair and makeup done. She even did my 2yo flower girls hair, and my husband hair! I wholeheartedly recommend her services and would use her again in a heartbeat. I can’t say enough how great she was!Sent on 01/30/2019

amazing team of artists/stylists!
Kathleen and her team were wonderful! Very professional, communicative, and receptive to feedback after my trial. During my wedding day, they had notes from my trial and after, and adjusted until I loved everything about my look. My girls all also looked amazing, especially considering we had a variety of skin tones, hair color, and ages. Everyone's hair and makeup lasted through the entire night, and looked incredible in photos. They were able to accommodate 12 people easily, set up quickly, were on time, and packed up quickly. The whole team was really efficient and talented. So so glad I found Kathleen!Sent on 11/26/2018

Amazingly efficient hair and makeup team!
Overall, I had a wonderful experience working with Kathleen and her team! As someone who doesn't wear a ton of makeup regularly, I was super nervous about choosing a hair and makeup team for my wedding. There's so much pressure on brides to look perfect (and the definition of "perfect" varies by individual!) and I was looking for a stress-free experience and a team that would be warm, thoughtful, patient, and accommodating, with an added bonus of having experience with Indian brides/weddings. Kathleen and her crew had it all! As I continue to look back at my wedding photos, I am so thankful to have found them because we all truly do look perfect.Sent on 12/21/2018
After my first makeup trial, I knew Kathleen noticed that I wasn't 100% in love with my look. She also let me know soon after that there was a scheduling mishap and she had already committed to another bride on my wedding day. While this was stressful and disappointing initially, Kathleen made it her mission to make it all work for me, and then some! She had me come in for a second trial with a new hairstylist at no cost, and we were able to incorporate all of my hair & makeup feedback from the first trial to ensure that I had no reservations whatsoever. Our new hairstylist also had a ton of experience working with mothers of the bride/groom, and made my Mom feel relieved and comfortable with getting her hair done, which I cannot be more grateful for.
Kathleen paired me with a hairstylist and makeup team who were perfect for my needs - a total of 14 women needed hair and makeup done by 10am. Classic Indian wedding day drama! I actually had to add in a few aunts about 2 weeks prior to the wedding, and our one primary hair stylist was still able to accommodate with no concerns. We had backups assigned for hair and makeup if we needed it, but the team was able to get everyone looking fresh and beautiful within the time allotted! The fact that we were all ready on time and happy with our looks is an absolute feat, especially when in a bridal suite with many frantic Indian women running in and out, draping saris and jewelry on people, with hair and makeup running concurrently. I'd absolutely recommend Kathleen and her team to any NJ bride looking for a kind, reliable, and talented hair/makeup glam squad!

Kathleen was amazing!!! During the hair/make-up trial, she was willing to help/work with me in getting what I wanted. On the day of the wedding, she knew exactly what to do with my hair and it was prefect. I didn't have to ask her to change anything. The make-up was amazing as well and it was done just how i envisioned. Thank you Kathleen.Sent on 08/31/2018
