Kat and her team are wonderful! From the moment I first met her for my hair and make up trial 6 months before my wedding, I loved her! She is so sweet, easy to talk to, and an amazing artist! She knew exactly what look I wanted (beachy, summery mermaid waves, bronzed glow) for the Big Day and made it happen. I'm Asian, more on the tan side, with very thick hair that's hard to curl, and I usually hate getting my hair and make up done because I usually get done up too pale and/or geisha-like so I was worried about finding the right person that would do that to me. I could not have asked for a better person to do my hair and make up. She also did hair and make up for all 4 of my bridesmaids and the 2 mothers (who all loved their looks!) I got so many compliments throughout the night and everything stayed put until my night ended at 4am! Haha! Kat is also very professional and extremely easy to work with. She was prompt in replying back to all my emails and texts and helped answer any and all questions I had. Her work speaks for itself and I highly recommend Kat to all brides looking for a hair and makeup artist. You will NOT regret it! Thanks so much for making me feel beautiful, Kat :)

I was so happy with my hair and makeup on the day of my wedding! I looked beautiful and Kat did amazing work. I didn't really know what I wanted and I didn't have a trial run so Kat did a really good job in figuring out what would make me look my best. She's an expert and will make you look stunning if you choose her. I would recommend her to anyone!!

When planning our wedding day, one of the biggest decisions was finding the right person for hair and makeup as this was the look that that would last forever in images. When I met Kat for my trial, she was calm, collected, easy to talk to, and most importantly AWESOME at what she does. I was incredibly pleased with my trial, but Kat took it a step further and spent some time looking at ways to enhance and further perfect my look for the big day. I could not have asked for anything more perfect day of. She and her assistant were on time, efficient, fun, and most importantly made myself, my 4 bridesmaids, and 2 moms look stunning. I have received so many compliments on my hair and makeup and have Kat to thank. I would highly recommend her to anyone as she is top notch and phenomenal at what she does!!! THANK YOU KAT!!!!! :)

I had a wedding at The Beverly Hills Hotel in May, 2014. I live in Denver, CO so finding a hair and makeup artist for my bridal party and me was a bit challenging. I spoke with ~dozen different vendors before choosing Absolutely Beautiful. From my first interaction with Kat, I was impressed. Although she was 8 months pregnant at the time I first contacted her, she was very responsive and informative. I knew that if I reached out to her with a question, I could expect a response within hours. She was also very accommodating in setting up my trial session (working collaboratively with me to align the trial session with a pre-planned trip to CA that I had).
The trial session was great! She listened to my wants and gave me the look unique for me rather than a generic bridal look.
During the time between the wedding and the trial, we were in contact to tweak a few aspects of my look.
For the wedding day, she was AWESOME, along with her team. She was timely, professional and overall so enjoyable to spend the day with. That is key- having someone that is a joy to be around since we were with her the better part of the day leading up to the wedding!! All my bridesmaids were thrilled with how they looked too. We received multiple compliments on both hair and makeup (everyone's significant other asked that we have Kat and team primp us on more occasions!! :))
I want to say thank you to Kat for assisting in making my wedding awesome!!

To say I am picky about hair and makeup would be an understatement! After going through many many pages of suggested makeup/hair artists on this site, the knot, and yelp, I narrowed it down to 3. After my first consult with Kat, I knew didn't have to look any further. She really loves what she does and it shows. Kat and her team are amazing!!! They were on time, professional, and made sure everyone looked their best and loved it! Every single other time I've had my makeup done for an event, I've had to tweak it to my liking or just start over! Not with Kat and her team! She knew exactly what I wanted and made sure everyone looked flawless. She is very honest in what she thinks will look good and wont look good on you. That is something I really appreciate!! If you want you and your bridesmaids to look absolutely beautiful on your special day you wont regret hiring her!

Absolutely Beautiful Hair and Makeup lives up to it's name! I worked with Kat for both my engagement session and my wedding day and she made me STUNNING on both occasions. She knows what she is doing and needs very little direction in order to give you the look you are dreaming of. I showed her a picture of what I wanted-and that was it. She can create/recreate any look!
Aside from being a fantastic makeup artist, she was also very professional, friendly, and efficient-- I need to mention that she did makeup on my wedding day for me, my 3 bridesmaids, the mother of the bride, the mother of the groom--and, she even dolled up my flower girl so that she felt included- talk about excellent customer service!
She was a pleasure to work with and I hope to use her in the future whenever I need professional makeup services.
I would recommend her services to any Bride-to-be.

Kat wasn't available for my day but she connected me with Veronica Rodgers and a team of professionals who made my 20's theme wedding just come to life. They were professional, responsive, and truly listened to my thoughts and ideas about my day. They took the inspiration and created a masterpiece! I cannot reccomend them highly enough. Great value, professional, prompt, and genuinely lovely to work with. You can see the work speak for itself below:

Kat was absolutely amazing!! I will never go to anyone else for make up again! Not only is she amazingly talented at what she does, but she is very in tune to the clients needs. In the midst of all the chaos getting ready for my wedding, Kat was sooo patient, calming and so helpful. She even stayed longer than she was supposed to, to touch me up because my ceremony ran over. On top of all this, she was 8 months pregnant too!!! Every one of my bridesmaids loved her work too and were so happy. You will not regret choosing her, I promise!! :)

Kat did an amazing job! She was such a pleasure to work with. I couldn't have been happier with the results. Everyone commented on how great my hair looked. It's normally straight and flat, and she gave me voluminous curls that lasted all day and night through hours of dancing. And my make-up was flawless and natural looking. I don't wear much make-up usually so that was key for me. And she did a great job with my sister and sister-in-law, and she managed the situation when one of them was taking all day in the chair because she couldn't decide what she wanted done. I really appreciated that. Thank you!!

I have all positive things to say about Kat, and would honestly recommend her to anyone. When I first sent Kat an email initially asking about her services, she responded to me within the same hour. I loved it. I was able to set up a time and date for a trial run with her with the same ease. I felt very comfortable during our initial trial. She was interested and determined to work with me in creating the look I envisioned for my wedding. She was very down to earth and warm, but very professional at the same time. She always got back to me very quickly via email or phone if I had any questions or concerns about the upcoming big day. On the day of the wedding, she and her assistant were there right on time. The services we had done that day included two bridesmaids' hair, 2 junior bridesmaids hair and light make up, flower girl hair and light make up and bridal hair and make up. We all looked and felt fabulous with the finished product, and we had fun during the process. I really couldn't have been more satisfied with the experience. It was a flawless experience, and we "made it to the church on time".

Kat and her Absolutely Beautiful team were recommended to me by my friend who used them for her wedding and I absolutely recommend their services to YOU! Kat did hair and make-up for me, my maid of honor and my mom at my wedding and we were all thrilled with the results. My groom was even even more thrilled when he saw me all made up for the first time as I walked down the aisle. I went for a hair and make-up trial with Kat a couple months before our wedding and was so pleased with her excellent skills with both hair and make-up, her artistry AND her friendly and calming presence. My hair and makeup after the trial and on my wedding day turned out better than I could have imagined. Show Kat a celebrity/model photo of the hair and/or makeup look you want and she can deliver. She also did an amazing job putting me at ease and managing the tense dynamic between my mom and me on the wedding day. I can't recommend Kat and her team highly enough and hope you will treat yourself to the Absolutely Beautiful experience...reasonably priced and worth every penny!

My hair and makeup after the trial and on my wedding day turned out better than I could have imagined. Show Kat a celebrity/model photo of the hair and/or makeup look you want and she can deliver. She also did an amazing job putting me at ease and managing the tense dynamic between my mom and me on the wedding day. I can't recommend Kat and her team highly enough and hope you will treat yourself to the Absolutely Beautiful experience...reasonably priced and worth every penny! Read less

Kat is great! She is professional yet so kind and understanding. I tried other makeup artist (some that I knew and others that were recommended) and no one compared to Kat’s artistic ability. Yes, I consider makeup and hair an art! A friend recommended Kat to me at her own wedding. She was very quick in responding to my request from her site with an email, which by the way included all the info I needed before I could even ask for it!
The day of the wedding she came to my house (on time) and her calm spirit helped my wedding nerves. Her time management skills are great and she even gave my mom a lip gloss.
Over all it was a great experience with Kat. From the trial run to the day of.

Kat and her team did such an amazing job on my wedding day! I met her a few months before the wedding and did a trial run. It went so wonderfully - she was able to create the exact look I wanted and her personality was so calm and warm that I knew right away that she was the right choice. I highly recommend her services to any bride.
On the wedding day, Kat and her assistant were right on time and did a fantastic job of keeping us on schedule. And, of course, everyone's hair and makeup turned out beautifully!! Kat did my hair and makeup which I loved and lasted all night, no problems. Her and her assistant also did hair and makeup for my four bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law. They all looked beautiful and I was particularly impressed with Kat's assistant's abilities. I've been in a lot of wedding where the assistant is no where near the level of the owner and have ended up with some pretty bad hair and makeup as a bridesmaid. I was so happy that Kat employs excellent assistants. Everyone in the wedding party felt beautiful and loved their looks!
Thank you so much Kat!!! xoxox

Kat was amazing every step of the way. At the hair/makeup trial she was friendly, put me at ease, and turned my inspiration photos into a gorgeous reality. Over a 4 month period, she was quick to respond to emails, answered all my contract questions, and even helped me stock my touchup makeup bag. On the wedding day, she made myself, my bridesmaids, and the mother of bride and groom feel incredible. My mom said she had never felt more beautiful in her life. Kat is incredible and I absolutely recommend her.

Kat was such a blessing to work with! I found her online after searching several wedding websites which all gave her great reviews, so I thought I'd set up a hair/make-up trial. Besides her awesome personality and cute apartment, I was very impressed with her perfectionism and how she really listened to what I wanted. I've had my hair/make-up done for friend's weddings, and I've always had to touch up the make-up or they never did it like the pictures I brought. After the trial with Kat, there wasn't anything I'd change--plus I even had to go work a 12-hour shift at the hospital and my make-up stayed put! On the day of the wedding Kat and her team arrived on time and kept to their schedule, even finishing a little bit early. All my bridesmaids felt comfortable with the hair/make-up artists and looked amazing throughout the wedding. I've already had friends ask who did our hair/make-up so they can use Kat for their weddings!

Kat and her team were AWESOME. There's really nothing else to it. I met with her for a trial and we tried several looks to get exactly what I wanted, and she definitely delivered day-of and was extremely flexible. She always responded immediately to emails and is extremely professional. My bridesmaids also had their hair done the day of the wedding, and Kat was efficient, making sure that everyone looked unique but also had a cohesive look.

My hair and make up looked amazing in my pictures and lasted all night. Kat was extremely professional and an amazing make up artist. I would recommend any bride to use Kat and her team.

My husband and I are from Australia we got married at Wayfarers Chapel only just a few months ago. In the process of organising our dream wedding, I came across Absolutely Beautiful and got in contact with Kat.
I thought that organising our wedding from Australia would have been hard but ever since I got in contact with Kat, it has been a breeze.
Kat and her assistant did my two bridesmaids & my hair and makeup. We looked absolutely amazing. By organising Kat there was no stress at all with hair and makeup, Kat is reliable, was quick to reply to email and very proffessional at what she does.

Thankyou so much Kat for making my bridesmaids and I look beautiful :-)

If you want someone to do your hair and makeup for your big day and want to look amazing without all the stress that comes with organising. Absolutely Beautiful is the vendor :-)

Kindest Regards

I am very pleased with the makeup and hair services Kat Laskey from Absolutely Beautiful provided for my wedding.

This is why I highly recommend her:
1. She was always on time.
2. She understood the ideas I had in mind clearly and she always was making sure she was doing the makeup and hair the way I really liked it.
3. She is very professional and brings all the tools you would need, so you don't have to worry about anything.
4. If she thinks something wont work for you, she will propose another idea for you without trying to impose it. I can tell she is very nice.
5. Even though the makeup had to be layered, it remained always natural looking. I was still myself, which is great because you don't want to feel as a stranger in your own skin the day of your wedding.

I'm sure Kat Laskey will be my first option if I have another important event!

Kat did the makeup for my wedding. She also did my mom's and all my bridesmaids' makeup. I have never gotten as many compliments on my makeup as I did on my wedding day (and I've had it done professionally for many occasions)! My bridesmaids looked gorgeous and my mom looked like she was 20 years younger! I went to a lot of different makeup artists for trials prior to my wedding and I found that a majority of them either put too much makeup on me or went for the traditional bride look. Kat listened to what I wanted and I found her work to be very fashion-oriented and modern. I would recommend her in a second!

And I looked great both in person and on the photos, which was important to me. Also, now I know my best red lipstick shade and will wear it forever! Thanks, Kat!

Kat is an Absolutely Beautiful person and a very talented makeup artist! I first found out about Kat through her website www.absolutelybeautifulbrides.com. Then, as any insane bride like myself would do, I researched her a little more and quickly found that she was no ordinary makeup artist, but a pro with a huge amount of experience and knowledge. I decided to come out and do a trial with her and ended up having such a fun time with her and her precious puppies. I didn't have time for another trial before the wedding but I trusted her 100% to wing the changes I asked for. It ended up raining the day of (I was late...she was on time!), which stressed me out just a bit (a lot!). But she was so calm that I had no choice but to sit back and enjoy the transformation. In the end, I felt like a princess with a beautiful up-do, amazing makeup and a huge smile! I received lots of compliments and I'm also pleased to say that all of the women in my bridal party were equally as happy with her and Carla's (her assistant) work! A huge thank you to you both!

Kat Laskey of Absolutely Beautiful Hair and Make-up did my hair and make-up for my wedding at the Montage in LA in August, 2012 and I could not have been happier with her services. Kat and her team also did hair and make-up for my 9 bridesmaids and several of my family members.

Kat is amazing! She is an excellent hair and make-up artist and is also very calm, cool, and accommodating. I had a huge bridal party and Kat was excellent at keeping me calm and making me beautiful in those final hours before the wedding.

For the trial, Kat advised me to bring pictures which I did and she did my make-up EXACTLY as shown in the pictures and also advised me as to what she thought looked good with my features. She also recommended a long-wear lipstick color and brand for the wedding day which I purchased. Kat was also very helpful in helping me to find hair extensions that matched my hair color and length. At the actual wedding, my make-up was flawless and lasted the whole night. My hair was also beautiful and looked exactly as Kat and I discussed it - It stayed perfectly pinned the whole night and looked so beautiful. I received many compliments on my look and I attribute that to Kat.

Kat's assistants were also incredibly talented and very friendly - all my bridesmaids LOVED their hair and makeup and raved about Kat and her crew afterward and asked me for their contact info.

Kat was also very professional, efficient, on-time, got back to me promptly when I initially reached out to her, and was a pleasure to be around during a hectic day. Kat stayed with me until after the ceremony to touch up my make-up and remove my veil. Finally, Kat's services are very reasonably priced and she offers discounts for large groups. I highly recommend Kat - She is the best!

She was wonderful for my engagement shoot too. Even my photographer commented how much she loved my make-up. Kat was easy to work with and she is very skilled and creative. She listens to what I like and used her own judgement to come up with something that fits my features. As someone who doesn't know too much about makeup and really have no clue what I would look best in, Kat really helped me create the look that i could look back and love!

Kat did my hair and make up for my wedding. We met once before the wedding for a trial. She has great ideas and amazing sense of style. I loved the makeup so much that I didn’t clean it up for a day… After I went home and gave it more thought I decided I wanted a different color pattern and she asked me to send her a picture so that there would be no confusions on my wedding day. She also asked me to send her a picture of any family members or friends that wanted to get their hair and makeup done so that she could be prepared. On my wedding day she arrived on time and she did an amazing job. Her services are not cheap but not too expensive either. For the work she does the price is great. I couldn’t be happier. She also let me have the lip stick she used on me so that I could use it throughout the day. Overall, I am very glad I picked her for my wedding.

On my wedding day she arrived on time and she did an amazing job. Her services are not cheap but not too expensive either. For the work she does the price is great. I couldn’t be happier. She also let me have the lip stick she used on me so that I could use it throughout the day. Overall, I am very glad I picked her for my wedding. Read less

As a wedding planner, a fabulous hair & make-up stylist who is both great at what she does and affordable is super hard to come by... that is what has made me fall in love with Kat! I started working with her this summer and have been super happy with her services! I love how she is able to make my clients feel at ease during what can often be a stressful morning. She is a great listener, which is so important when working with brides with all different personality types. She offers her expertise with gentleness and my brides always look great when Kat is the one getting them ready. I'm so happy I found Absolutely Beautiful for my brides!

Where can I begin? Kat was an absolute jewel of a find for my wedding day! From the beginning, she was easy to reach, quick to respond to all of my inquiries, flexible, professional, and a really fun and sweet gal! We met for trial hair and make-up before the wedding for a price you couldn't beat! I brought a few pictures of what I liked and talked through all of my ideas, but Kat is the one who made my vision come to life and provided the perfect balance of listening to what I wanted and also adding in her own ideas and inspiration to come up with the exact, perfect look I had been imagining. She took photos and careful notes in order to replicate everything on my wedding day. She created a "Day-Of" schedule to ensure that me, my mom, and all of my bridesmaids would have the perfect look in a reasonable amount of time. She was great about being aware of other vendors to make sure that we were photograph-ready on time! Kat and her team worked quickly, but carefully, to make sure we got the most out of that morning (which can be quite hectic and crazy the day of your wedding!) I could not have been happier with the way my hair and make-up turned out! It was soft, elegant, everything I wanted! AND, it lasted more than 12 hours without being heavy and unmanageable. Seriously, at 1am after outdoor photos, dancing, tears, the works, I looked in the mirror and everything was just as fresh as it was at 12pm earlier that afternoon! Kat also gave me a small touch-up kit of lip color and a powder puff - a ittle lipstick re-apply a few times during the night was all I needed to stay looking and feeling fabulous! Kat Laskey and her team are WELL worth the price. Having someone like Kat come to the place where you are getting ready on your wedding day takes out the stress and worry of having one more place to be, one more event to coordinate, one more headache about trying to make sure everyone shows up to the right place at the right time. My wedding coordinator (who knows and has worked with TONS of vendors) has even chosen to use Kat as her personal hair and make-up artist for her own wedding! Go with Kat and her team - as the company name states, you will be ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and you will be SOOOO glad you did!

Kat and her team were so professional and easy to work with. I had a chance to meet with Kat before the wedding to do a trial and once again for my engagement shoot. She takes the time and effort to really listen to you and will make sure you look perfect! I had 9 bridesmaids and all of them looked amazing! Some of the guests were complimenting how beautiful everyone looked. I would recommend Kat to all the brides out there :)

Kat arrive on time, and was totally happy and energetic from the minute she walked in the door (at 5:45am I will mention!). Her positive attitude was a GREAT way to spend my wedding morning getting ready! She made me feel comfortable and relaxed, which any bride can tell you is a HUGE plus the morning before your wedding.

She listened to any concerns I had, and addressed them swiftly and knowledgeably. I looked AMAZING, and so did the whole wedding party! I have never received so many compliments from total strangers before. If I have any other big event you better believe Kat is top of my list!

Kat was simply a joy to work with. She was professional and on time. Very personable and easy to get along with which made everything that much better. I loved her application of my makeup and she made me feel beautiful on my wedding day. Makeup lasted all night, did not have to retouch, just the occasional powdering of the nose which is a given. I would definitely recommend her to ANYONE. I will be working with her again! Thanks for everything, Kat! You're the best!

From the first email to the last detail, Kat exhibited her professionalism and talent as an artist. She is exactly the person you want to work with for your wedding or any special event. She took my wedding location, attire, theme, etc. into consideration and listened to my ideas during the trial appointment and expertly guided me through the hair and make-up process. Kat sent a day-of-timeline far in advance for my approval and scheduling purposes, which proved to be very helpful. Her easy going, but professional spirit brought a calming presence to an important day. Because I had many women getting hair and makeup done, she brought with her a capable assistant who was also very talented.

It is without reservation that I recommend Kat Laskey for your wedding day or any special event.

I plan to stay in contact with her and use her in the future.

I found Kat through a friend who got married back in May 2011. Although I'm Asian, I didn't want the typical Asian makeup (as in needing to add fake creases or making me look extra-pale). As my friend is also Asian, I loved that her hair and makeup looked stunning in a modern way, exactly the way I wanted to look and that's what she delivered for me.

Kat did my hair/makeup trial and hair/makeup for the wedding day. I actually had two trials and both times, Kat followed up with me after the trial to make sure I was happy with the trial results. She wanted to make sure we were set for the big day. Kat and her team (Carla) are very responsive, friendly, and super patient. Both are very open to the feedback that I had and also provided great suggestions on why my hair/makeup should look a certain way. They showed up on time on the wedding day with a calm and cheerful presence...just what you need in the morning before a hectic day! My bridal party enjoyed working with Kat and Carla as well. As a matter of fact, one of my bridesmaids will be using Kat later this year for own wedding! My hair and makeup lasted all day! I received many compliments (and I looked like myself!).

What makes Kat and Carla truly stand out is that they have very extensive experience, including many years experience working on hair/makeup in the entertainment industry...so they're very professional and used to high stress environments and definitely know how to get you looking your best in front of a camera! Kat is also a makeup instructor for a local makeup institution, she really knows her stuff! I highly recommend Kat!

I am SO happy that I found Kat to do my hair and make up! She is such a wonderful and beautiful person, and such a pleasure to work with! She really listened to my wants, likes, and dislikes. She was able to create the perfect wedding day hair and make up for me. She is extremely flexible and willing to work with me! She made me look and feel like a queen on my wedding day! I also had 10 other girls getting hair and make up done! Kat was able to bring two other assistants to work on all the rest of the girls. They were also just as sweet as Kat and did beautiful work. They were on time arriving to my house and we were all ready on time for pictures. The BEST service I have ever received!!

I felt radiant on my wedding day, but still felt like I looked like myself. Leading up to the wedding day, I actually had two trial runs since I changed my mind about my hair style, and Kat fit me in, no problem! She was also wonderful and timely with her email communication. I would recommend her to any bride, no matter what her needs are. Thank you, Kat!

Kat and her staff did an absolutely fabulous job on the hair and makeup for my wedding. Their timeliness and professionalism helped my day to run smoothly and seamlessly while their friendliness, approachability, and expertise helped my family and I to feel “absolutely beautiful” and confident on my big day.

I rarely wear make-up and fuss with my hair, so I wanted an overall very natural, minimalist look. Kat took my wishes to heart and really communicated with me throughout my trial and the day-of to make sure that I was happy with my look. In addition, Kat was easy to work with, patient and flexible. My bridal party had many similar sentiments after working with Kat’s staff and loved their looks as well.

I would highly recommend Kat and Absolutely Beautiful to any interested bride.

Kat was such an amazing find for my wedding. She was the perfect addition to my special day. I met with her for a trial and felt so comfortable with her right away. She really made it all about what I wanted and worked with me to find the perfect look. On the day, she was such a blessing. She has such a calming presence, which is nice to have on such a crazy day, and her work was absolutley devine. Her assistant Carla worked on my Mom and two of my bridesmaids, who all looked beautiful as well. I was told I was the most beautiful bride, like I had just stepped out of a magazine, and it was all due to Kat. I am going to use her for another wedding I'm attending and one fo my bridesmaid said she wants to use her for her wedding. You can't beat her price for the quality of work you recieve. Get her while you can.

Kat did an amazing job on my hair and make-up for my wedding day. I don’t usually wear a lot of make-up and wanted to look natural yet still stand out in photos. Kat did just that! I received lots of compliments and my pictures turned out great! She has a very diverse background as a make-up artist so it was easy for her to understand my skin and what colors would work well. Not only is Kat a talented make-up artist she also did a great job on my hair. I originally had one style in mind, but when I came home, my then fiancee didn’t necessarily agree. I was bummed only because he didn’t like it and told Kat what happened. She was so understanding and offered to do another hair session so both my husband and would be happy with it. It turned out to be a great decision to change the original style because the final look was even better! From the trial to the big day, my experience with Kat was really wonderful. She is so easy to talk to and made me look and feel so pretty!

Kat was AMAZING! She did my makeup for my wedding in April, and completed a bridesmaid's makeup as well, and I couldn't have been happier. Kat responded quickly to my initial email inquiry and we booked a trial for shortly there after. During my trial, she listened to what I liked and what I didn't like, and didn't make me feel bad for saying no to some of her ideas, or for tweaking some of her work. I didnt have to tweak too much though, because I looked beautiful! After the trial, I emailed her a few times with questions. Kat was super helpful and didn't make me feel like I was inconveniencing her. It was clear that she was truly committed to giving me a look that I wanted. On the day of my wedding, I felt PERFECT. It is amazing how great makeup can make someone feel so beautiful! I was glowing! Even without a trial for my bridesmaid, Kat did a wonderful job. My bridesmaid looked her best! Kat was on time, was efficient on the wedding day, was helpful with suggestions, and was a pleasure to have in the room with my friends and family. I will be using Kat again, and would recommend her to anyone. You won't be sorry if you book Absolutely Beautiful!

I found Kat online after a disastrous make-up trial. Kat sat with me and we went through every step of the make-up process and made sure that I was comfortable with the amount of make-up. The results of the hair and make-up were Absolutely Beautiful. Instantly I knew that I would look beautiful the day of the wedding. The day of the wedding, her and her team were punctual and patient with all the bridesmaids and family. Everyone looked stunning. I would highly recommend Kat and as a bonus she is super-friendly!

I absolutley loved having Kat do the hair and makeup for myself and my Maid of Honor. I contacted Kat online and she contacted me right away and set up a trial that put me completely at ease. On the day of the wedding she was early and got everything set up and taken care of. I feel like she really listened to what we both wanted for our hair and makeup and was just so nice to work with!

Kat Laskey from Absolutely Beautiful was awesome!! She was very patient and helpful. I had no idea about make up and i wanted something that looked natural and flawless and she did such an amazing job. I needed to be in church very early and she was very flexible and was there for me when i mostly needed it. She did my hair and make up exactly how i wanted for an affordable price. I highly recommend her she is the best.

I'm not a bride, but Kat created the most fabulous makeup job I've ever had done. I used to go to her when she worked for MAC in Chicago. I love getting my eyes done up big and out of the ordinary, so I brought in a smokey eye from a magazine. She created it even better and cooler than the image in the mag. It was unreal. I requested her the next time I went back and was so upset to hear she moved to LA. I'd definitely recommend her for your big day!

I live in NY and was recently married in Palm Springs, CA. I found Kat online and felt comfortable with her from the start. She worked with me on creating a "day-of" beauty time line for myself and all of my girls and encouraged me to send her pictures of hair and makeup that I liked from magazines. She was great at staying in contact with me and she showed up on time and ready to go on the day of the wedding. She was completely professional and has such an easy way about her that she made the day very fun and stress-free. (My dad actually thought she was a girlfriend of mine from way back because she fit in so well). My hair and makeup turned out better than I could have ever expected. The airbrushed makeup photographed beautifully, but also did not look overdone in person. Kat is a doll deluxe and I would refer her to any of my girlfriends. :)

Kat made a great first impression when she called me in response to my inquiry, the morning after I emailed her. From them on she was professional, friendly, organized and eager to please. My husband and I had decided on an elopement-style wedding so Kat was the person other than my husband to spend time with me that day, and she was incredibly warm and gave me my dose of "girl time". She did an amazing job with my hair and makeup -- first try. My makeup was exactly per the photo I had sent her and my hair compliments my facial features and my dress, even though she never met me or saw the dress in advance. I hope that I have the opportunity to use her services again. She was a wonderful friend to share such a special day with and I looked extra-beautiful thanks to her.

P.S. When I took out the bobby pins the next day, a quick brush and my hair had beautiful waves -- off to the honeymoon that much faster!

Kat was simply amazing! She was quick to reply to my last minute inquiry just weeks before my wedding and made every effort to work around my schedule and be available on my wedding day.

Kat took time to sit with me during our trial run and ask questions about what I did and did not want my makeup to be like. She listened, added her suggestions and created a look that both I and my soon-to-be husband loved. I am used to wearing more dramatic eye makeup every day and while I didn't want to go crazy on my wedding day - Kat, was able to make me look like me in a very understated, elegant and still dramatic way.

The day before my wedding day, Kat called to touch base about our scheduled time and to express her concern that due to my ever changing timeline of appointments she was worried that we might be cutting it too close. I was so grateful to be able to talk it through with her and figure out the best option so that we both felt comfortable going into the day of. Sure enough - it all worked out perfectly!

The wedding day was seamless. Kat arrived to my family's hotel suite which was filled with aunts, cousins, sister-in-law, friends, mom and dad, nieces...everyone - it was insane! She was able to jump right in, ease into the vibe of the family, set up and get me settled to start my makeup. I felt comfortable and confident that she was going to make me look my best. She asked me along the way if I wanted anything different and took my thoughts and made them happen. In the end - I felt amazing, stunning, beautiful, elegant and like I had the perfect wedding day glow!

THANK YOU KAT for everything! I would absolutely recommend Kat for your wedding day or any other need for makeup/hair! I am even trying to think of something else I need my makeup done for...!

Kat and her team did an amazing job on Hair and Make up for my girls, my mom, my aunt, and myself. She took her time to make sure we all looked beautiful. I appreciate her for coming out to us because it is far away from her normal area. I had some issues at the last minute before my wedding but Kat and I worked together to be able to overcome them. She was responsive to emails and listened to me when I told her I wanted light and natural make up. We all got so many compliments. Kat was so professional and timely. One topic I wanted to address was that I had a tattoo to cover up on my left inner bicep and she give me a very reasonable price to do so. She came early to make sure we could start on the tattoo first. She layered a ton of make up over the tattoo but within a few hours it was starting to crack and fade. From sweat and moving my arm against the dress the make-up began to rub off and stain my dress. I was upset but there was nothing I could do. Kat completely disclosed this to me so I knew it was a possibility. I now wish I had done another sealer coat of make up over the tattoo before we headed to the wedding. I am still very pleased with Kat and I will recommend her to everyone I know!

Absolutely Beautiful responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your feedback, Margaret.
I am so happy that you and your party looked and felt so beautiful yesterday.
Your review confirmed what I suspected and warned you about- that the location of your tattoo (inner bicep) would inevitably be rubbing against your dress all night, and the risk of the makeup coming off on the dress was highly possible.
But since you said you wanted to cover it anyway, I hope you weren't too surprised or disappointed... At least it was invisible for photos, which is what you wanted.
This serves as a good lesson for myself and all brides wanting to cover their tattoos for their wedding:
If you have a tattoo in an area that will not touch your dress, then covering it is easy and not a problem. But if your tattoo will be rubbing against your dress, it is likely that makeup will get on the dress. (Hopefully dry cleaning can take care of that!)
Thank you again for this valuable feedback and have a happy honeymoon!!

Kat made my day that much more perfect by making sure everything ran so smoothly during my hair and makeup session in the morning before my wedding. Kat and her team of Carla and David showed the utmost professionalism as they worked on the tight schedule we had to get through 9 women (7 bridesmaids + bride + mom). They were so well-coordinated that we were even ahead of schedule most of the morning! Furthermore, Kat and her team are a group of fun, sweet, and considerate people that really cared to make this day the perfect day for me and my bridal party. I would absolutely recommend Kat for any future bride -- she really takes care of you and makes sure everything is just right. Kat has a great eye for making sure the makeup looks natural and not too caked on. Carla is also fantastic to work with, as she did my hair on the day of, and it turned out great. I couldn't have asked for a better hair and makeup styling team to work with both before my wedding for trials and other photo sessions, as well as on the big day!

Kat did a really good job on my hair and makeup. The trial really helped figure out what you may want on the day of the wedding. She also did my bridesmaid's hair who wanted an updo but she didn't bring enough large bobby pin to pin both of our hairs so she used the smaller pins on my bridesmaid...problem is..her hair started falling off as the day progress. Kat was nice but she also seemed a little distracted on my wedding day probably because she has another job she had to go to after mine. She forgot that I did not need mascara on my eye because the mascara will run and I will have dark eyes as the day progress. She put it on one of my eye before she realized the mistake and she didn't clean it off so I had to touch up my under my eye a few time as the day progress to cover the darkness. Overall her service was good.

Dear Vicky,
Thank you for your honest feedback;
I am so sorry to hear that you were not 100% satisfied with the hair & makeup services that I provided for your wedding.

It means so much to me that everyone I work with feels that I am completely present and attentive to their needs, and so I feel terrible knowing you didn't feel that way. Hard to hear, but this is an important lesson for me.

Again I apologize that you didn't feel that way on the day of, and my only comfort is knowing that you looked absolutely beautiful! (Because you truly did.)

Sincerely,
Kat
