Katie's excellent! Hair and makeup got so many compliments!
Such an amazing experience with Katie! She was adaptable to my specific (and evolving) asks and is highly skilled. We did a helpful trial run in her awesome studio where I got to test out the makeup and hair style a month or two ahead of time. Day of the wedding, she was a great calm, focused presence and pulled off the perfect hairstyle (exactly what I was hoping for and held up well). I received so many compliments on my hair and my makeup - a testament to her amazing work! Thank you, Katie!Sent on 08/17/2019

Hire her before she's booked!!
We are SO thankful for Katie and her team. Booking was easy and she was very flexible with scheduling my trial run. I LOVED my wedding updo. I literally couldn't have imagined a better look. All of my bridesmaids were able to chose what they wanted and all loved their hair as well! Our hair lasted all day and night, no need for touch ups. Highly recommended!Sent on 07/09/2019

Cannot recommend highly enough!!
Working with Katie was such a joy! She seemed to know exactly what I was hoping for / envisioning for my hair and makeup on my wedding day. I bought a complicated hair vine and she went above and beyond learning how to work with it and braid it into my hair. And I loved my makeup look - it was the best I have ever looked but I also still looked like me :) My mom said exactly the same thing! She also has the sweetest and calmest disposition - I was so grateful to have her by my side during the hectic hours before our ceremony. Cannot recommend highly enough!!Sent on 08/10/2019

Katie and her team were so amazing! They went above and beyond, coming super early in the morning to get us all (4 bridesmaids, 2 mommas, 1 flower girl, and me, the bride) looking our best for early photos. They were incredibly professional in making sure that each one of us felt beautiful and they did a fabulous job of creating the vintage look I was going for!
My hair in particular was causing all sorts of issues due to damage (last minute, unplanned bleaching to correct the hair color) and humidity, but Katie tamed it into submission and you'd never know it by looking at the photos- my 30s waves were completely on point!
They were also just really sweet and kind and even did a great job of interacting with the very busy 8 year old flower girl!Sent on 09/27/2018

Katie was awesome to work with. She did my makeup for our engagement photos. I felt comfortable with her and she made sure I love the way I looked. I got several complements on my makeup. I'm excited for her to do my makeup for my wedding.
Update: She did an amazing job again for my wedding! My girls and I were really excited for her to do our make up. I got a lot of compliments about it as well. Anytime I need my make up done I will definitely contact her!Sent on 06/30/2017

I had a last minute cancellation for my makeup and hair stylist and a friend referred me to Katie... I am so glad they did! She not only did an amazing job with my non-specific ideas on what I wanted, but she also gave me the sense of calm and confidence on my big day. I love looking at my photos and feeling stunning! I couldn't imagine a better experience.Sent on 09/19/2018
Katie Kihara's reply:Thank you, Rachel! I'm so glad I could step in last minute to help you feel your best on your day!

Katie was absolutely amazing! Even when my mom was rude and cranky, she was professional and went above and beyond! She kept all of us calm when things were running behind and made me feel beautiful! Thanks so much!Sent on 03/29/2017

Katie was the hair stylists for my wedding. She was professional and friendly. I didn't have a lot of time to plan my wedding but she is part of the reasons why my wedding went so smoothly. I would recommend her to my friends and family.Sent on 03/22/2017

I would highly recommend KM Hair and Makeup for any event! Katie specializes in enhancing your natural beauty, and is an expert when it comes to creating a natural and vintage looks. Her professionalism shines through with her prompt responses and knowledgeable advice and expertise. She takes time to make sure you will look exactly how you envision on the day-of by ensuring that you do a pre-trial and are in love with your look. On the big day, she arrived on time with a great attitude and made me look exactly the way I wanted. She was poised and kind the entire time, and her presence helped ease the wedding-day nerves. I can't say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with her and what a marvelous job she did!Sent on 03/21/2017

I would definitely book Katie again! She is very professional, on time, knows her hair and make up, and is receptive to all your ideas and open to make changes. We did a trial run prior so there wouldn't be any surprises on the actual day and it also gave me time think about what changes I wanted to make. I asked for a couple tiny changes to the eye make and she happily made them. I looked amazing for my wedding photos and could not have been happier.Sent on 04/13/2017

I highly recommend services of KM Hair and Makeup! Katie was very professional, kind and fun. I was so lucky to have her near during such an important day! I would also recommend to book a trial hairstyle prior to the wedding day - it really helped us to make sure that we're on the same page, so it was nothing but a pleasure during The Day.Sent on 03/23/2017

Highly recommended! Excellent service. Katie is fun, very attentive and skillful! I enjoyed working with her on my makeup and hair. I also suggest to do the trial prior to the wedding day. Very helpful!Sent on 04/07/2017

Katie did my hair and makeup for me for my wedding. She was very proactive in asking me about my vision for both and studied the hair photos I sent her in advance. We did a test run on the hair so that on the day of everything went very smoothly. I still recall how beautiful I felt that day (as I'm not very good at styling my own hair or applying anything other than the most basic makeup). I would recommend Katie to anyone!Sent on 03/22/2017
