Carla was extremely professional and easy to work with. She and her colleague did hair and make-up for my seven bridesmaids and mom and we all looks amazing heading out the door! They met us at the hotel and worked with us in the suite. They worked quick and efficiently and stayed very calm and excited. I would highly recommend working with Carla for your wedding hair and make-up!

I had my bridal updo and my mom had her hair done at the PR at Partners in Tysons Corner. My stylist (Natalia) was super friendly and responsive to the ideas I presented. I had a consultation and opted to skip the trial but do a day before "treatment" and blowout. The blowout wasn't the best I'd ever had, since it was limp a few hours later. The updo ($75) was nice but I had to use some pins to keep the bottom from coming undone during the reception. Overall I think she did a good job for the price and would go back to her.
My mom wasn't sure whether she wanted an updo or a blowout and got Tara as her stylist. Apparently the stylist doesn't do updos (huh?!) and was quick to give my mom some super tight spiral curls that she had to shake out before the ceremony. I think she was disappointed (especially for the $50 price) but didn't complain much--especially since my stylist came to the rescue and fixed her bangs. I'd recomend that if you book for others in your party that you make sure their matched up well so that everyone is on the same page.

Carla did an outstanding job with both my wedding hair and make-up! During our consult she was extrememly personalble and we played around with hairstyles till we decided on the perfect look. She is very flexible and truly wants you to look your best. She had fabulous suggestions and great advice. On the day of, she came to my hotel room and the whole atmosphere was relaxed and fun and my bridesmaids and I had a ball getting ready. I can honestly say I have never seen my or my sister's hair look so fabulous! Both my sister and I grew up in the hair salon business and were extremely impressed with Carla's professionalism and skills. I will definitely be calling Carla next time I have an evening event and want to pampered and look georgeous!

Carla did a great job with hair and makeup at my wedding! She was even able to add one more service to another person during the day of our wedding and spent as much time and attention to the bridesmaids as the bride! Everyone looked beautiful and Carla was very calm during time contraints getting all 7 of us ready on time for photos. Her work at the wedding was much better than the trial. She spent time discussing everything with me, and I purchased some of my own makeup to show her what I wanted.

I hired Carla to provide hair and make-up for my three bridesmaids, Mother of the bride and Mother of the groom. Overall, I was happy and thought she did a great job. For the most part everyone looked great.

I did feel like Carla underestimated how much time it would take for her to do everyone's hair and make-up, however. We ended up running slightly behind, and my Mom only had about 10 minutes for her make-up, which I thought was unfortunate considering we paid $85 per make-up application. It was a bit stressful and rushed towards the end. Perhaps that's the way it always is, but it was unfortunate that the Mother of the Bride ended up last in line. I think Carla could have prioritized and made "appointments" for each person to make sure each individual had equal time for what they needed done.

When searching for a makeup and hairstylist for my wedding, I was really nervous to let anyone touch my hair. But when I met Carla and did the trial, She made me feel so comfortable and assured me I was in good hands. She listened closely to the look I was going for and she exceeded with the results. Not only did she do a great job with my hair and makeup but she also did a great job with my mother and sister too. When I did the trial with Carla she made a few recommendations for treating my hair properly. Ever since meeting with her, I have gone only to her to do treatments on my hair and for color as well.

Thank you Carla!

I did not think Carla was overly professional and that bothered me (though she is extremely sweet). I felt like my hair looked very messy on the day of the wedding (the style just did not hold).

I was glad to have found Carla, especially since I had been putting off booking someone for so long. She did my hair and makeup, and hair for three bridesmaids; I was pleased with the results. She provided tips and was focused on making sure my hair/makeup turned out well, no matter how many times it took to find the the right look.

After my hair and makeup trial with Carla I knew I was in good hands! She and her assistant did such an amazing job not only with me but my bridesmaids as well. I love the tips Carla gives as she is doing your hair and makeup too! She even convinced me to have her redo my color/highlights before the wedding and it was the best decision - it's never looked better.

I couldn't have been happier with both my newly colored hair and my wedding day look - thank you Carla!

Carla was wonderful to work with! I did my hair and makeup trial with her and had no complaints. I had a ton of photos to show her and she did exactly what I wanted. My make up was amazing. Carla not only did a great job the day of the wedding but also gave me some wonderful tips to prep my skin months/weeks before the wedding. I even went to Carla 2 weeks before the wedding to get my hair cut and she did an amazing job on the cut. I will definitely go back for more haircuts.
The day of the wedding she came to my parents house (ahead of time) and did my hair and makeup along with two of my bridesmaids and my moms makeup. We were short on time (my fault) and she got everyone done in record timing. She is very sweet and very calm... I cannot say enough about her and the wonderful service she provided. I got a ton of compliments and have many friends getting married next year... needless to say i have been recommending Carla to everyone!
