Paper Dolls Wedding Hair & Makeup went above and beyond my expectations before, and on, my wedding day. I was a bit overwhelmed when it came to planning this part, as I had a very large bridal party, and needed day-of services for 13 ladies! As soon as I spoke to Carrie on the phone during my search, I knew that Paper Dolls was right for us – she was confident that her and a team of 3 others could beautify all of us in the 4-hour time frame we would have. Planning my wedding from a distance, I was only in town once for a quick trip during the process, and Carrie came to my hotel room for my trial! With one picture I had saved for my hairstyle vision, and my instructions of “natural and light, but enhanced” for makeup, she instantly created the absolute perfect look for me. On the wedding day, her and her team arrived promptly to our rental house, set up their stations in record speed, and had all of our services done AHEAD of schedule. They even accommodated last minute extra services and touch-ups for everyone; the whole morning was absolutely stress-free thanks to them, and each of the ladies looked stunning from the time they were done-up, until the last song of the night. I could not have been more pleased with Paper Dolls and would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride! Carrie made me feel picture perfect on my wedding day, and feel so thankful for them each time I see a new wedding picture – these ladies are amazing!

Carrie did my hair and make up for me and my two bridesmaids and it was amazing. She also kept right on schedule and was so fun to work with!

Shayla was fantastic! She was efficient and professional, yet very friendly and warm. Myself, my sisters, and my mother were so happy with how our hair and makeup turned out!! I would recommend Paper Dolls to friends without hesitation!

I am so glad that I chose Paper Dolls for my wedding! I truly had never felt more beautiful, and I owe that to Carrie! During our trial, I told her exactly what I was hoping for in hair and makeup for the big day. She NAILED IT on the first shot! She created a beautiful side braid! Not only that, but she easily recreated both my hair and makeup on wedding day. She and her assistant did an amazing job with all of the bridesmaids, working efficiently to have everyone ready on time. To hear my bridesmaids say that out of all of the weddings they were in, this was the best experience with hair and makeup really says a lot! I highly recommend Paper Dolls to any bride and their bridesmaids! :)

Perfect wedding day hair and makeup
We worked with Sierra and Kelly for bride and bridesmaid hair and makeup, respectively. We were all so happy with our hair and makeup - all my girls looked and felt gorgeous! Sierra and Kelly were so friendly and professional. Would highly recommend them!

Flawless and Beautiful
Carrie and her team (Beth and Shelby) did a FANTASTIC job getting me and my bridal party all "dolled up" for the big day! Each of my girls loved their flawless makeup and perfect hair styles. They all did a fabulous job tailoring each look to the individual, even my mom who has never had her makeup done by a professional was raving about how beautiful she felt. One of my favorite moments with my girls that day was when they all saw me for the first time after Carrie had finished her work. I felt so incredibly beautiful when I saw the looks on all of their faces. :)

I had my pre wedding hair and makeup trial run with Domanique and I was thrilled with the results! She was extremely professional and made my thin/fine hair into a beautiful up do. She worked tirelessly until my makeup was exactly as how I’d dreamed! Can wait to work with her again on my BIG day!

Shayla Battle was my stylist and she was super sweet and amazing at what she does. She truly made me look and feel amazing on my wedding day!! What really surprised me was I showed her a picture of a hairstyle that I wanted for my big day.. she took one look and it looked just like it if not better. Shayla you are truly a professional. I felt like a princess on my wedding day because of you and I will always be grateful for that. Thankyou for being patient and arriving early you are the best!!

Carrie and her team were amazing! They made my bridesmaids and family feel so special and beautiful. I wanted a boho look and they nailed it! Absolutely recommend Paper Dolls for any type of bride!

I can't thank Carrie and the entire Paper Dolls team enough for making my entire bridal party (including mothers and grandmothers) look and feel absolutely beautiful on my big day! Carrie and her team arrived on time, with all their equipment, and set up quickly. Before we knew it, they were ready to get started! All the artists really listened to the girls requests for hair and makeup, and made everyone feel at home. We all had a great time laughing and chatting with the girls from Paper Dolls. The day went by so fast, but Carrie and her team made sure they stayed on time and were able to get everyone's hair and makeup done. They also made sure to do some last minute touch-ups! I changed my hair style from my trial, Carrie and I decided to make my makeup a little more dramatic. Carrie walked me through everything and made sure I was comfortable and happy with the final product! However, happy is an understatement- I was thrilled! My hair and makeup was exactly what I pictured it to look like on my wedding day :). I received so many kind compliments from our wedding guests, vendors, and family. My hair and makeup stayed intact the ENTIRE night, even after a little mist! However, the best reaction was my now husband who was completely speechless during our first look! Thank you again for making me feel and look absolutely beautiful on my wedding day!

Carrie and her team were a joy to work with and did such beautiful work. My bridal party and I were all so happy with how our hair and makeup turned out! One thing I really appreciated was that she was very conscious of how many services each of her team members did in a given day to ensure that we wouldn't have to start too early before the wedding. Would definitely recommend working with them!

If you are looking for a hair/makeup stylist in the Charleston region LOOK NO FURTHER! Shayla and her team were incredible: personable, kind and so easy to work with. I provided a few images of a braided bridal updo and she absolutely nailed it along with light and airy makeup that was perfectly suited for a brunch wedding. Very highly recommend Paper Dolls!
Leah · Married on 01/27/2018
Prior to using Paper Dolls for my wedding, I was a bridesmaid who had my hair done by their team for another wedding. Carrie and her girls did a GREAT job on the big day, and Carrie herself came to my house for my trial run about a month and a half before the wedding itself. I myself only had my hair done, but several of my bridesmaids had both hair and makeup services, and looked absolutely beautiful. I 100% recommend these ladies for your wedding- but be warned! They're a popular booking, so the more advance notice you can give, the better ;) Thanks again, Carrie!!

I can't say enough about Carrie at Paper Dolls! She did such a great job. She responded quickly and was very flexible. She did my bridal portraits hair/makeup as my trial and she also came and did my hair for my rehearsal! On the wedding day they were on time and brought all of their stuff. She had one other stylist with her and they not only did my hair/makeup and my mom's hair/makeup, but 6 bridesmaids and 2 flower girl's hair. She also made time to come to my venue after my first looks for touch ups! They did a great job at matching my pinterest pictures I showed them. I plan on booking Carrie again for future events!!

Planning our wedding from New York, we knew we had to get this right the first time. We hired Paper Dolls at the recommendation of a few photographers in the area, and so glad we did! Shayla was already set up and ready to go at our venue, Legare Waring House, when I arrived with the bridal party. She did hair and makeup for my mom, mother in-law, sister in-law, and myself. We were all so happy with the results! Shayla was personal, professional and so TALENTED! Right before she started with me, I showed her some inspirational Pinterest photos and she made my hair and makeup BETTER THAN the photos. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. My makeup lasted all night, as promised, and my hair was flawless. If you're working with Paper Dolls, you're in good hands!
Allie · Married on 10/08/2017
Shayla is incredible! She was able to translate my vision into reality and the whole crew from Paper Dolls was so professional and fun to work with in the bridal suite. All of my bridesmaids looked flawless and they did a great job of minimal makeup on my mom and the mother of the groom who requested lighter makeup.
Lauren · Married on 08/19/2017
Carrie and her team were amazing. They were able to complete 11 beautiful hair and make up styles quickly and were so friendly. We looked beautiful and the styles lasted ALL day. Highly recommend this team.

Shayla was awesome to work with, and myself and my bridal party were so happy with our hair! She was like hanging out with another friend all day!
Lindsey · Married on 06/02/2017
I was originally recommended to Paper Dolls by a previous bride, and I'm thrilled that I went with their team! Shayla and her team were OUTSTANDING. After my hair and makeup trial, I completely flipped what I wanted to do and Shayla was more than happy to help and accommodate something I felt comfortable in. By the time the wedding day rolled around, I gave her a few pictures and she NAILED it! I had extensions added in and she made me look and feel like a super model. She came right to our house on Folly Beach and set up shop, which made it unbelievably convenient for all of us My entire group of bridesmaids, plus my mom and a handful of aunts, also had hair and/or make up done and Shayla was able to delegate and keep everyone organized so that we we finished not only on time, but a little early so that we had some time to gather our belongings before we headed to the venue. Thank you Shayla for all of your help! You really are an artist!

When we started planning our Memorial Day weekend wedding last summer, I immediately hired PaperDolls for mine the Bridal party’s hair and makeup. I was a Bridesmaid the year prior in my friend’s wedding and they did an outstanding job! Carrie did my hair & make-up trial run for my engagement shoot a couple months before the wedding and I was completely blown away and got super excited for my big day. It is crazy humid in South Carolina and our airbrush makeup held up perfectly all day! I had to call Carrie for an emergency spray-tan a few days before the wedding due to an accidental sunburn (whomp whomp) and she made me look gorgeous. My wedding day hair and makeup was nothing short of stunning and all my maids looked beautiful. During our first look pictures my husband told me I looked gorgeous and I took his breath away. Thank you for outstanding work! I highly recommend Carrie and her team; they book up quickly, so book them asap! Our wedding was featured on Southern Bride’s Real Weddings and I am so excited for our vendors. They truly deserve it!

Carrie and Beth were fantastic to work with. They captured what I had envisioned perfectly, and were great people to be around! I was dancing all night and my hair and makeup did not budge. Amazing work.
Nicole · Married on 05/12/2017
I can't begin to tell you how amazing my experience was with Carrie and the Paper Doll's team. After initially having a traumatizing experience with another beauty salon, Carrie ensured me that would not happen to me again. Beth and Alyssa were both incredible. They came to my apartment for my hair and make up trial then came to the hotel I was staying the day of my wedding. Beth and Alyssa we're not just personable and great ladies to chat with, Alyssa nailed my make up as did Beth with my hair. I felt absolutely beautiful on the day of my wedding. I can't thank Beth. Alyssa and Carrie enough for making this experience so special and making me feel so beautiful.

PaperDolls - Wedding Hair & Makeup made all of bridesmaids, mom's and myself feel so beautiful and comfortable on the day of the wedding. We didn't have to start hair make-up until 11am because they are so efficient and they really made the day enjoyable! Not to mention they made me fall in love with airbrush again after a poor experience. I was cautious about my make up being too heavy, and at my trial they really took everything step by step with me to create the perfect look. Thank you Carrie and team you are incredible!

Shayla and her team at Paper Dolls were awesome. I did my trial run for my hair and make up in December for our wedding in March. I showed Shayla pictures of what I liked and she was able to create the exact look I wanted. When she came to our hotel rooms on the wedding day, she created that look again to perfection! We had so much fun with them while we were getting ready for the wedding. They were professional, but so much fun to be around. We were able to stay right on time the day of the wedding with Shayla and her team sticking to the wedding planner's timeline. She brought the right amount of staff to get all the girls and the mothers taken care of. All of the women were so pleased with their looks and everyone looked stunning. With eight women getting hair and make up done, Paper Dolls hair made the check out process so simple and quick through Venmo. We are so pleased with their work and I felt so unbelievably beautiful on our wedding day!

I felt beautiful on my wedding day because of Paper Dolls. Carrie was easy and comfortable to work with and seemed to know exactly what I wanted. I'm glad she was a part of the my day and would recommend to anyone. Plus the makeup and hair lasted until 2 AM that night when I regretfully took it off:)
