Katie made everyone's hair look unique and fab, and was super nice to be around!
Katie is the consummate professional and is incredibly talented. She did hair for my bridesmaids and me on my wedding, and was able to make everyone's hair look beautiful, while also executing a style each bridesmaid was comfortable with. She did an awesome job with my hair, too. She worked with makeup artist Alana Schmidt, and they were a great team-- a nice couple of gals to hang out with on my wedding morning!Sent on 01/12/2020

A True Artist!
Alana truly worked magic on me and my bridesmaids for my wedding! She was absolutely wonderful - a true professional who was able to expediently transform all of us with her skills into polished beauties. Katie was very easy to talk to and to work with - she was sure to ask about any photo references to hair styles I liked and was great at emulating that. I preferred my hair down and was initially thinking about a side ponytail because my dress had a low back. Katie actually came up with an idea to do a braid for a half-up/half-down look that I ended up loving so much more! She is an artist! Katie is warm hearted and easy going, and again, a consummate professional!Sent on 10/23/2019

Prettier than I've ever felt!
Katie and Alana were our hair and makeup team for my September wedding and they were total rockstars. I've never felt so pretty in my life. Katie managed to perfectly create what I was hoping for (and it held beautifully all night); and all of my girls and mums and flower girls felt the same. She's a hair genius!Sent on 09/29/2019

Gorgeous styles that LAST
Katie was recommended by my makeup artist, Alana Maria, and I felt so lucky to have such a killer team. Katie is exactly the type of person you want around on your wedding day—she's super professional at the same time as being chill and just fun to hang out with. You can tell you're in good hands with her. I absolutely LOVE the look she created for me. She also did a range of styles for my bridesmaids—up and down, textured and sleek, short and long. Everyone looked GORGEOUS and our styles lasted all day and night (even through serious dancing). All I can say is THANK YOU Katie for making me feel so gorgeous on my wedding day!Sent on 08/04/2019

Katie is a master at bridal hair and absolutely wonderful to work with!
Katie was such a pleasure to work with! From the hair trial, she welcomed me and my mom into her home and was incredibly attentive and easy to talk to when figuring out the best styles for each of us. I could tell immediately that she was an expert at bridal hair and felt incredibly at ease in her hands. From the trial up through the wedding day, she was super responsive and flexible. The morning of the wedding, she arrived early and fit in myself, five bridesmaids and two moms with additional time for touch ups. She worked with every girl to make sure they were happy and comfortable with their hairstyles and everyone was absolutely thrilled with the end results - she did a stunning job! Our hairstyles lasted through the night until the after-after party ended at 3am which was beyond our expectations. If you're looking for a bridal hair stylist, I'd highly recommend Katie! Hiring her and Alana Schmidt (an incredibly talented makeup artist!) made getting ready for our wedding a breeze!Sent on 07/19/2019

Katie was a superstar!
Surprise surprise I was a super indecisive bride-to-be about my hair. Actually at first, I was adamant about having my hair down for the big day, but after my trial something about it didn't feel right (isn't that the point of a trial?!) Thankfully, Katie accommodated me for a retrial in late May a month before the wedding. She did such a stellar job and I couldn't have been happier. All of my bridesmaids were so happy as well. It was as if Katie managed to match each of their hair styles to their personality and that takes true talent. Thank you so much Katie for helping to make my day even better than expected!Sent on 12/03/2019

Katie did an incredible job on my hair for my wedding. I was struggling to decide on the right style and she was very patient, coordinating two trials so I could land on the perfect look. My hair came out beautifully on the day of the wedding. It was textured and etherial. I felt beautiful and confident the whole night. She also did an awesome job on my wedding party and family. We had a lot of people to get through in a short period of time and Katie, along with Bex who she hired for the day, did an amazing job.Sent on 06/23/2019

Perfect wedding hair!
Katie did my hair, along with my bridesmaids and mom's for my wedding and everything looked amazing! It stayed throughout the night and she was super efficient and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend to anyone with an upcoming wedding!Sent on 05/25/2019

Loved my wedding day hair
Katie is an absolute master at her craft. I went into my trial unsure of what I wanted to do with my hair. When I told Katie what I was thinking about, she gave me her honest opinion and showed me some examples. She then got to work and my hair came out better than I even imagined.Sent on 03/27/2019
On my wedding day, Katie arrived early and ready to get to work. She had a full day of doing 7 people's hair and she did a beautiful job. Everyone loved their hair and it stayed well all day even with some serious wind. Katie was a great person to have around on my wedding day. She was very calm and on schedule the whole day. I would highly recommend Katie!

Beautiful hair, professional service, and wonderful person!
I cannot rave enough about Katie Kelly: Hair + Make-up. From the first time I reached out to Katie she made me feel comfortable, relaxed, excited, and taken care of. Katie worked with me to identify my perfect bridal hair and then helped me readjust when my vision changed multiple times. She was easy to schedule trials with, responsive on email and text message, and helped assuage any anxiety I had leading up to the wedding. Katie's work speaks for itself, but she made everyone on the wedding day look amazing. From my long hair to my mother's short hair to my bridesmaids, she made each one of us look natural and beautiful. She listened to what everyone wanted and helped create a look for each person that made them feel beautiful.Sent on 10/31/2018
I would hire Katie again in a heartbeat and I strongly encourage everyone to do so!

Katie Kelly is professional, personable and truly talented. I couldn’t recommend her more!
Katie was absolutely amazing to work with! She understood exactly what I wanted for my wedding day and she turned my dream into reality. Not only did she welcome me into her home and made me feel comfortable for my first trial, she was available when I had second thoughts and needed another opinion for my look and then on the wedding day, she created the exact look I envisioned and that was truly me. She also did my mother-in-law and bridesmaids' hair and they all looked absolutely stunning. AND everyone’s hair lasted through hours and hours of dancing, which was crucial at my wedding! Katie is professional, personable and truly talented. I couldn’t recommend her more!

Katie is the best!!
Katie did hair for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding in the Catskills this past November. I knew the general style I wanted, but wasn’t sure I could pull it off. We did a trial a few weeks before the wedding and she immediately got the look I was going to when I described it... we tried two different versions of it (one up one down), and I ADORED both! I ultimately decided on wearing it low bun version because I was worried my hair wouldn’t hold curl if it was down, but even after letting it down halfway through my reception, the curls held perfectly! Katie was so sweet and showed up on time to my cabin in the woods that no one else could find on time. In my opinion her prices are lower than most for the quality of hairstyling she offers. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a boho style!Sent on 11/05/2018

Katie was so wonderful, I'm so glad we booked her for our Catskills wedding! When I first reached out, she was helpful with answering my (many) questions and pointing me to examples of her work. When my now wife and I went to her house for our wedding preview, she was super easy to chat with and listened attentively while we each explained what we were looking for. She worked well with each of our hair -- I have fine straight hair that can't hold a curl, but Katie got it to! And my wife has super thick curly hair that Katie was able to work with and tame into a beautiful elegant look. We talked through some tweaks once we were finished, and she had great suggestions how to improve the looks on our wedding day.Sent on 09/27/2018
Leading up to the big day, we ended up having more bridesmaids who wanted their hair done than we originally thought . Katie didn't break a sweat when it came down to discussing the schedule and timing though. She arrived and got down to business and we finished *ahead* of schedule. She was also such a delight to be around and her calm and friendly attitude definitely rubbed off on everyone around. We also had a bunch of different hair types and she did an amazing job on everyone.
It was such a pleasure to work with her and I'm so glad we found her!

Katie was a true professional and kept me at ease throughout the entire wedding planning process. She was accommodating with scheduling a trial and working with a busy schedule. Our wedding day was very muggy and my hair was perfect all night long. My bridesmaids had so much fun with Katie and her style is amazing. Don't keep searching for a hair stylist and book Katie!Sent on 09/26/2018

Katie was punctual and professional. She was very helpful in explaining how different styles would turn out. I went for a different updo from my trial, and I absolutely loved the final look (and received a ton of compliments)! I really enjoyed working with Katie and would highly recommend her!Sent on 09/28/2018
Katie · Married on 08/03/2018
Katie was so great! Everyone was happy with how their hair looked, and styles lasted through the evening. She was able to easily imitate photos provided by bridesmaids, and offer suggestions/changes to styles if she thought something would work better. I wanted each bridesmaid to wear their hair however they wanted, which meant Katie was required to do many different styles and she nailed them all! I would definitely recommend her for wedding hair!Sent on 09/28/2018

Katie does a fantastic job! I was so excited to work with Katie after finding her on Instagram and meeting her for the bridal hair trial. She's highly capable and very relaxing to be around - you can trust her to do a great job for the bride, the bridesmaids, the MOH, the MOB, and the flower girls! My hair lasted from 2pm-2am withstanding all the dancing, eating and hugging. Couldn't have been luckily to have found/worked with her!Sent on 09/30/2018

Katie Kelly was a dream to work with! Her professionalism, attention to detail, and calm demeanor put me right at ease on what had started as a hectic day. Her creativity and superb taste resulted in a romantic look beyond my highest expectations, and at a reasonable cost! My tough-to-please bridesmaids and mother were all thrilled with her work, particularly how perfectly she understood and executed their vision. We all looked fantastic and received numerous compliments over the course of the day. Highly recommend booking Katie ASAP for your special day!Sent on 11/01/2018

Hire Katie for your dream Wedding Hair!
Katie was super responsive and communicative during the months leading up to the wedding. She asked a lot of questions and you could tell she really wanted to get a good understanding of me and my personality in order to make my wedding hair dreams come true! She was on time day of and worked quickly to get all the girls' hair done. I loved everything she helped the girls decide on, the styles really fit the girls' faces and personalities and everyone looked amazing! My hair was FABULOUS and held up till the very end of the night (despite humidity and sweating) and I got endless compliments on it. She did a phenomenal job, is super talented and I can't recommend her enough. Do yourself a favor and hire Katie for your wedding day! Thanks so much, Katie!Sent on 11/06/2018

I worked with Katie through another company for hair on my wedding so I can’t speak to how she runs things but for our trial and wedding day she was amazing! On the day of the wedding it was raining all day and I was going back and forth with if I should keep to my original style of half up and half down that I did during the trial and loved so much. She was honest and took the time to look at the weather forecast and humidity to give me an honest opinion. Because of her I stuck with my plan and I’m so happy I did. We were a two bride wedding as well and there was a lot of hair to be done. Everyone looked so great. When we finished a little early she stayed until our original end time to make sure anyone who needed a touch up got one. I hadn’t planned any hair accessories either and didn’t really care but my now wife had extras and it was Katie’s idea to use them. She kindly ran to the other room to get them and added them to my hair. They really added a nice touch and I was glad she did that. I should also mention that all of our bridesmaids looked stunning! She is awesome at hair and I highly recommend her!Sent on 06/14/2018

Katie is the BEST!
Where do I even begin? I had my trial and fell absolutely in love with the most whimsical perfect ponytail that Katie whipped up after showing her about three different versions and asking for a hybrid. Fast forward to my dress fitting and at the last minute decided I NEEDED ALL MY HAIR UP! Katie knocked it out of the park (and I have A LOT of hair). She also masterfully crafted styles for my entire wedding party that complimented their personal style and their dresses (everyone was different). Everyone looked like a dream!! I am so grateful!Sent on 12/13/2018

Katie did the hair for my April 21st wedding and she was an absolute dream. She did updos for me and three bridesmaids and blow-outs for the mothers of the bride and groom. Katie did exactly what I envisioned with my hair and it lasted the whole evening (10+ hours) and still looked good even after I took the veil out. Even my notoriously fussy mother was happy with her hair and very impressed that the styling lasted all night.Sent on 05/15/2018
If you are thinking about booking Katie for your next event, I highly recommend her. From the trial through the wedding, she was great to work with!
Angeli · Married on 04/20/2018
Katie was wonderful to work with! She was super communicative, receptive, and thorough, and brought her talent and professionalism through each step of the process from beginning to end. She made me and my girls look amazing. Each of us had a style that was very individual, from boho to glam, and each style was done with a creative eye and attention to detail. I loved my low updo with fishtail braids! I would book Katie again in a heartbeat, and recommend her wholeheartedly to any bride in the NYC area. Thank you Kelly, for your amazing work and making me and my bridal party feel so beautiful on my wedding day!Sent on 09/28/2018

Katie Kelly did my hair for my wedding in October and I couldn't have been happier! I made a few small tweaks as to how I wanted it from my trial and she executed perfectly. My hair perfectly matched the rustic chic vibe I was going for and I had compliments all night. Katie also managed to do all 14 bridesmaids/mothers/stepsisters/inlaws done perfectly that morning. I cannot thank her enough!!! 5 stars!Sent on 12/30/2017
