I highly recommend the wonderful team at Best Face Forward. Kara went well above and beyond to ensure that everything went smoothly on my wedding day. I am very much a Type A personality and require a lot of reassurance, but somehow Kara seemed to keep me calm and collected throughout this entire process, especially since I didn't really know what I wanted for hair or make up. BFF had several consultations with me to make sure that I was getting the exact look I wanted and they also worked with me on proper skincare.

Kara did an outstanding job in coordinating hair and make up for both myself and my bridesmaids. She even squeezed my Mother in to do her make up at the last minute. She didn't bat an eye when I asked her on the day of the wedding if she would be willing to ride with me to the venue to help me with my veil. Talk about being both flexible and professional! I truly felt beautiful on my wedding day and a large portion of that can be attributed to the phenomenal work of BFF. Thank you to Kara and Tria for making me, my bridesmaids, and Mom feel beautiful! :)

I contacted Best Face Forward about doing my makeup, as well as my mom and a few bridesmaids for my wedding. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company. Kara was so prompt in all of her responses. Larissa was my makeup artist, and she was amazing. She came to my house for my trial, which was super convenient for me. I am not a big makeup person so I only had a slight idea of what I wanted, but she took my ideas and ran with them. I felt gorgeous!! On my wedding day, Larissa was prompt and had all of the ladies' makeup done on time. I could not have asked for more from Best Face Forward!!

Kara was so prompt in all of her responses. Larissa was my makeup artist, and she was amazing. She came to my house for my trial, which was super convenient for me. I am not a big makeup person so I only had a slight idea of what I wanted, but she took my ideas and ran with them. I felt gorgeous!! On my wedding day, Larissa was prompt and had all of the ladies' makeup done on time. I could not have asked for more from Best Face Forward!! Read less

Choosing best face forward was one of the best decisions I made in planning my wedding, if not the single best decision of all the many hard decisions I had to make. When it came to choosing my hair and makeup, I had no idea how to go about making such a difficult decision but I went with my gut in choosing BFF and I am so happy I did. Micaela is so amazing. Not only is she the best at what she does, she is one of the sweetest most patient people I have ever met. I'm not sure if she knew this about me or not, but I am not an easy person to please so for me to say she exceeded my expectations is very high praise. I would recommend her to any bride out there no matter what your style. She can do it all! : )

Cypress is the best! Thanks to her, I looked and felt beautiful on my wedding day, and so did my bridal party. She really took her time to make sure I looked my best and that my bridal look complemented my skin tone and hair. She is friendly and personable, and knowing she was there was one less thing to worry about on my wedding day! Karen was fantastic, too! My bridesmaids were gorgeous, and so were the moms! She was really great with my mom, who was recovering from cataract surgery and needed special care taken around her eyes. I am so glad I went with Best Face Forward!

Where do I start? I met Kara at a Bridal Show that my venue hosted and I was immediately impressed. I went with a couple friends and my FMIL, and we all liked her a lot. She was funny and put us at ease right away. She answered every question we had and I walked away wanting to work with her.

From my initial email, I knew that this was going to be an awesome experience. I wanted to do my trial before completing the contract and that wasn't a problem at all--Kara did my make up and Christina tackled my hair. They were both very professional, welcoming, and did a great job of listening to any ideas or changes that I had.

They offer a lot of services besides hair and make up--I was specifically interested in the Skin Analysis since my skin has always given me problems. One of my MOH's and I decided to take it on and it we had such a great time! Not only did Kara do her Skin Guru thing, but this time gave us the opportunity to really get to see how Kara works BEFORE the day of the wedding. The regimen she started me on is the only thing that has worked for me skin, and the value is insane! By the time the wedding day came, my skin looked amazing!

On the day of, Kara and Christina had a lot of work to do! Almost the entire bridal party and my mom, stepmom, and mother-in-law got hair and make up done. They did a fantastic job of bringing out the beauty in all of us! Kara even came to the venue to help with touch ups right up until I walked down the aisle. WHAT? This is a whole new level of awesome! Kara and Christina were a huge part of making our day perfect and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work them!

The level of service that you will get from Kara and her team is unmatched. It's time to end your search ladies!

Micaela from Best Face Forward did my make-up for my August wedding. Her and the team was incredibly responsive from the initial email to the day of the wedding! The trial was great and Micaela quickly understood and agreed with my vision for the day. I appreciate the consideration the team puts on skin care and making sure the ingredients in the products are not harmful. I am one to generally feel awkward when getting my hair/other services done. Micaela was great to chat with during the process and I would absolutely recommend her and Best Face Forward to anyone I know.

Mandy of Best Face Forward was AMAZING. She worked quickly, professionally, pleasantly and confidently. Having my hair done was the best decision of the day aside from marrying my groom!

Seriously, though, Mandy made me feel beautiful, confident, and like a perfect bride. She listened to my wants and concerns, and created a beautiful, "beachy" hairdo that perfectly fit my ideas of matching my venue and dress. She was flexible with her time when I got caught in traffic coming down from D.C. for the hair trial, and even did my hair for me that night for my dinner date with my soon-to-be hubby! That was really fun. I let her know that the curls fell out of my hair that humid night, so on my (beach) wedding day, she pinned and sprayed my hair so perfectly that it took my husband's help to get it unpinned and let it back down. LOL! I was so pleased and actually amazed that it stayed looking perfect throughout our beach marriage ceremony followed by dinner on the Virginia Beach Waterfront.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for fitting me into your & Mandy's schedule so close to my wedding day! I would recommend Best Face Forward to anyone needing their hair done for any occasion, especially brides who want to look a step above the rest. Best Face Forward is a GREAT value with everything clearly spelled out in the contract and no hidden fees. Responses to my email inquiries and booking steps were prompt and professional. Highly recommended.
