THE hair stylist you NEED
Sent on 05/19/2021
Katlyn is simply amazing. I first heard about the Itty Bitty Boutique from a friend who is also getting married. After reviewing all the hairstyles she can do and all the advice from her blog, I decided she was the right fit for me. I found there weren’t many other hair stylists who give advice and blog. I also haven’t colored my hair in 3 years since moving back to VB because I couldn’t really find anyone who was a brunette specialist. All the social medial posts give love to blondes (love my blondes) but it was hair to see who could do brunettes. It was getting closer and closer to the wedding so I was scared someone would make my hair too brassy or too blonde. Then after seeing that Katlyn was also a brunette specialist, I thought to myself perfect!! And I’m so glad I trusted by gut. I loved how she took my inspiration photos and gave me her honest opinion. I loved how there are lighter strands, but it still looked like me. Because at the end of the day in wedding photos, I don’t want to look back 10 years later thinking who is that person? My hair color enhanced my features but still looked natural. Wedding day. OH MAN. Once again she blew my expectations out of the water. I didn’t end up doing a hair trial due to the pandemic and extra expenses just weren’t there. She literally made my hair look like my inspiration photo THE DAY OF DEAD ON. No hair trial. I loved how she could tell I wasn’t 110% there and read me and asked what I wanted to change. There was this one strand on the back of my head out of place. (Yes I know that sounds ridiculous), but to me I loved how Katlyn could read me rather than what I was saying. That’s what I LOVE about Katlyn is that she really listens to her clients likes and dislikes. For example, my cousin never gets an updo because she is self conscious about her ears because they stick out. Katlyn gave her exactly the updo she wanted and for the first time she actually loved her hair up without being self conscious. My mom too. My mom wanted to get waves in her hair but nothing too crazy, just some texture. And man Katlyn DELIVERED. I also went to her on the wedding day to ask her honest opinions about things because I know she always gives it. I’m now forever coming to Katlyn to get my hair colored or styled. Thank you Katlyn for all you have done. CANNOT WAIT FOR MORE. Book her!!

Kaitlyn was so fast and all the hairstyles that were done were breathtaking!! Not to mention the makeup was stunning. We had so many people compliment the bridal party on their hair! She was super sweet and her assistants were just and nice and overly talentedSent on 07/18/2021

Lovely! Please book!
I cannot get it through people's heads enough how much respect I have for Katlyn and the awesome business that she is growing with her own two hands. I scheduled a bridal trial a few months out from my wedding and came in hyperventilating and terrified because of my pretty dry skin and out of control curly hair, and Katyln didn't even flinch - she sat me down and talked me through everything and made sure that I remembered that this was MY BIG DAY! She explained every step of the beauty process and answered the silly questions I had while watching her do them. There was a moment when she'd asked me to pull down my mask so that she could do the rest of my makeup, and her eyes bugged out and I instantly shrank because I thought that it was going to be bad but then she shouted "YOU ARE SO PRETTY!" and continued to compliment me as she did my makeup, and I just teared up!!! It was a very personal thing to hear someone outside of my close family and my partner say that to me and actually mean it. Her excitement, her openness, and the five-billion-and-one amazing skills that she has with a few hair products and her makeup bag are just a handful of the reasons why I STRONGLY RECOMMEND booking Katlyn for any beauty services - especially weddings. Also a huge shout out to Nikki, her manager, who is just as fabulous and easy to work with. THANK YOU!Sent on 05/10/2021
The Itty Bitty Boutique's reply:Naijani, this review literally made me tear up!! Thank you so much for saying all of these AMAZING things!! It was absolutely lovely to work with you today and I'm SO excited for your big day!!! I can't wait to see you again soon!!!

Thank you Katlyn!!!
Katlyn is your one-stop-shop for wedding hair and makeup! She and her colleague/assistant Nikki exude professionalism. They are so responsive to every email and question. Now to the hair and makeup! Katlyn perfectly executed a series of beautiful braided hairstyles for my bridesmaids and a simple and sleek low bun for me. We all loved our makeup, too. What I appreciated most about working with Katlyn was that she heard my feedback from the trial and make me feel confident that she could pull off what I wanted. As someone who rarely wears makeup, Katlyn made me feel like an elevated and elegant version of my normal self. Lesson learned — always always provide constructive feedback to your HMUA (whoever you go with!). Katlyn — we loved spending the morning chatting with you and sharing book recommendations (let me know if you read that book!). Thank you for helping us all feel so glowy and beautiful!Sent on 06/24/2021
The Itty Bitty Boutique's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, Antonia! I had so much fun working with you and your girls and am so lucky to have been a part of your big day!! I love that we were able to work together to create a look that you felt confident in! I just bought the book on Amazon so I'll let you know my thoughts when I'm done!! ;)

Amber F. · Married on 11/28/2020
Book her now!
Everything about Katlyn and the salon was absolutely perfect. From booking her services all the way until the wedding day communication was on point. She always replied quickly and went above and beyond to answer my questions. After my bridal trial, she ensured I truly loved the look and took my alterations with grace, adding agreement to what I wanted changed. When the big day came, her and her assistant were on-time and even early, to begin the set-up. She ensured each bridesmaid loved their hair and makeup before moving onto the next girl and saved me (the bride) for last. During my hair and makeup, she made sure that all photo-ops could be simultaneously taken, and even had a dance party with us. Katlyn is the easiest person to talk to, the most understanding and most importantly she is outstanding at the services she provides. My hair and makeup looked even better than the vision I had seen for myself and it's truly all thanks to her. I cannot thank her enough for giving me such a beautiful look and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.Sent on 06/23/2021

Ashley O. · Married on 11/18/2020
Another satisfied bride :)
After browsing through many, many options for hair/make up services in the Williamsburg area, I decided on KIBB and am so happy I did! She’s fresh, excited and really loves what she does.. and she’s very good at it! I don’t typically wear much make up and keep my hair straight most days. Katlyn kept my traditional make up looking simple but still special, and my hair was beautiful. I didn’t have extensions put in prior to my wedding but hearing her talk about them has me thinking I might need some in my future :) I’m from northern VA but would travel to have her do my hair, no questions asked!Sent on 12/07/2020
The Itty Bitty Boutique's reply:Ashley thank you so much for this AMAZING review!! I'm so happy that you felt beautiful, but most importantly, like yourself on your wedding day!! It was so great getting to work with you, and I hope I get to see you again in the future!
Madeline M. · Married on 11/08/2020
Katlyn saved my wedding day! After having to cancel my original hair stylist, she was able to travel to my wedding with only a weeks notice and she gave me the perfect hair style (even though we never had a hair trial because of my last minute booking!) She was able to understand completely what I wanted and make it a reality and she provided such a low stress attitude on what can be a really stressful morning. In addition to doing my hair, she did makeup for some of my bridesmaids which was beautiful as well! I cannot recommend Katlyn enough.Sent on 02/01/2021
The Itty Bitty Boutique's reply:Thank you for these kind words, Maddy!!! My goal is always to make you feel like your most beautiful self on your wedding day, and I'm ecstatic that even without a trial, we were able to work together to give you your dream wedding hair!! I hope to see you again soon!

4 days from my wedding and I found her!
I was 4 days out from my wedding and why Katlyn and her Itty Bitty awesomeness didn’t show up on my search sooner I’ll never understand. Her awesomeness is in fact not itty bitty by means!!! I found her by a genius stroke of luck from the universe. My now husband and I were eloping and I didn’t really get into the bridal thing (covid helped with that) but by the time Katlyn completed my hair and make-up for our ceremony, I truly felt like a bride. She’s bubbly, fun, personable, honest, and her talent is nothing short of perfection (IMHO). She has a style that I think is perfectly conveyed through her business and marketing and if you haven’t checked her out, please do. Read her story. Every expectation was clear on her end and she really felt like a friend on my wedding day. Her bridal services were amazing considering we did not Zoom or meet or talk prior to the appt. Her business admin, Nikki, made me feel special even just in communication and calmed my fears of preparation in the days leading up to the wedding. If you’re thinking about hiring Katlyn, think no more and DO IT! I live 4 hours from her and plan to keep her as my permanent stylist/artist as she is truly knowledgeable and gives helpful information and tips. Totally worth it. (You rock, Katlyn! -Lacy)Sent on 11/01/2020
The Itty Bitty Boutique's reply:Lacy you are absolutely THE BEST!! Thank you so much for this amazing review!!! I LOVED working with you and can't wait to see you again soon!!

Cannot Say enough kind things about this girl!
Right from the start, Katlyn was so kind, professional, passionate, and easy to talk to. She did my make-up and hair for my wedding, and many of my bridesmaids and family's hair and makeup. Everyone loved not only her work but her as a person as well! She connected to every one of my family and friends and did touch ups and changes to make things more comfortable and personalized as requested. I cannot say enough how thoughtful and genuine she is as a person and how, not only passionate she is about her work, but how talented Katlyn is! I love that she is always looking to grow and learn, she stays so humble even though she is seriously the best and so knowledgeable! Everyone complimented my makeup and hair all night! You cannot go wrong booking Katlyn for anything and everything!! She is the best!!Sent on 10/27/2020

Highly Recommend for Wedding Hair & Makeup!!!
Katlyn checks off everything for your wedding beauty needs! She has amazing customer service, fast response time, and she is extremely talented at what she does. She did wedding hair and makeup for apart of my bridal party and everyone was so impressed - even one of my bridesmaids booked her right after for her upcoming wedding!! I did 4 styles for my trial and she nailed every one of them. She can do anything and even did the cutest bow in my flower girls hair. My hair looked amazing and it felt secure, stayed all night, and stayed in with a long vail in high winds. Hurry up and book her!!Sent on 01/23/2021
The Itty Bitty Boutique's reply:This review is too kind, thank you Karley!!! It was absolutely amazing to work with you and I'm soooo happy that you loved every single one of your trial styles!

Katlyn was fantastic!!!!! From start to finish she was so fun to be around and always focused on the mission of making me LOVE my hair and makeup styles for my wedding on 9/27/20. Leading up to the wedding, her and Nikki provided excellent service by politely and promptly answering any questions I had!
Fast forward to wedding morning and Katlyn showed up to the hotel at 2am with NO questions asked. Although my bridal party and I were all a bit sleepy, Katlyn was the bright light and excited energy we needed! The BRAIDS!!!! KATLYN IS THE BRAID QUEEN!!!! She was able to give each girl a unique braid of their own while still complementing my bigger braid. I absolutely loved my hair and makeup on my wedding day. I felt comfortable and I felt beautiful. Obviously... I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND KATLYN!!!! (:Sent on 02/13/2021

Beautiful hair and makeip
Katlyn was absolutely phenomenal to work with. I did a trial with her back in September and she was able to come up with the perfect hair and makeup for my big day. The day of the wedding was absolutely amazing while getting ready with my bridesmaids and mom. She was absolutely amazing with how she did every girls hair the day of and gave advice on what would work best with the weather that day. Her assistant did an amazing job with their makeup as well. Katlyn did my hair and makeup right before I got into my dress and she did an absolutely amazing job! My hair and makeup lasted all day including in taking pictures outside in the wind.Sent on 01/30/2020

I’m so glad I chose Katlyn for my hair and makeup for my wedding! We had a trial session and she was very accommodating to anything I wanted tweaked or changed after the trial. She checked in on me throughout the planning process making sure I was happy and didn’t need anything from her. We had a large bridal group, but Katlyn stuck to our timeline perfectly. All my bridesmaids were very happy with their looks. I got so many compliments on my hair and makeup. Katlyn has a great presence, she’s very sweet and easygoing. I would recommend her to anyone!Sent on 01/20/2020

I definitely recommend her as she has been in the business for a while now and has perfected her work!Sent on 10/30/2019
