Carola and her staff were a pleasure to work with! They provided on-location hair and make-up services for myself and my bridal party for my wedding. They were friendly, professional, and accommodating, and we were all very pleased with our looks. Carola and her staff are very talented and were able to give me the bridal look I wanted. Carola was also flexible and accommodating in terms of working within our budget. She was extremely responsive and communicative throughout the planning and wedding process. I would definitely use Carola's services again and would highly recommend them to any one else!

Carola and her team provided hair and makeup services to me and my bridesmaids for my wedding on Sept 20. They did an amazing job! My makeup lasted all night as did my updo. I received many compliments and would recommend Carola's services to anyone who asked for recommendations for special events. She also taught me some tricks that I can use in my daily life. Thank you Carola for doing such a fantastic job!

Carola and her team were amazing. She asked a lot of questions in an effort to get to know my personality and what 'look' I wanted. I did a trial run w/her for my engagement pictures - and they turned out amazing! My wedding was 3 hours outside of the DC metro area so I wasn't sure it would be worth the expense once I factored in the travel time, but once I saw my engagement pictures, a professional make-up artist moved from my 'that would be nice' budget list to 'must have'. In the grand scheme of things, her fees are really reasonable for what you'll get...which is feeling like a movie star on your big day.

Carola and her team are amazing!!!. The makeup lasted my entire wedding, through a particularly hot DC summer day with outdoor photos and hours and hours of dancing. Carola listened to me and gave me stunning, fresh makeup (not the typical overdone wedding makeup that I often see). She did a great job arranging hair and makeup for 13 people and everyone (including bridesmaids who had been in a zillion weddings) said that Carola and her team provided the best makeup they had ever seen for everyone in the group across the board. I was married last week, and several people have already contacted me for her info.

Carola was also great making sure that I found a hair style that I loved. I have curly hair and had no idea what to do with it. She walked me through the process, going through several trials, until we found something that could last all night that also didn't feel like an updo. Your wedding day is the time to "get it right" and I felt like I did because of Carola. In sum, I'd recommend her in a heartbeat.

Carola and her team did hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. I was thrilled with her work. She took the time to talk to me about what kind of look I wanted and was always responsive to my questions in the months leading up to my wedding. I felt like she made me look like the best version of myself and was very conscientious of my bridesmaids requests for a "natural" look. I can't speak highly enough of Carola and her team and would recommend her to all future brides!

Carola and her team did an absolutely amazing job for my wedding earlier this month! Carola was very helpful in helping me discover my wedding day look and was very attentive to any questions I had along the way. Rakshi, the artist who did the actual makeup for myself, my sister-in-law, my aunt, and my mom was absolutely fantastic! She arrived early and was able to set up so we could get started with makeup as quickly as possible. Both Carola and Rakshi were so wonderful to work with and made this step of the wedding process fun and completely stress-free. I would highly recommend Carola's services!

I hired Carola and her team for my recent wedding. While Carola does a great job on makeup, and the stylist that did my hair, DJ was AMAZING, I was not pleased with the overall services provided to me. I had a rather larger bridal party and when I made my first contact with Carola and expressed how much money I was willing to pay for the bridesmaids, she put me at ease, assured me that the hair stylists she works with have been doing hair for decades, etc. I had some communication issues with Carola from my trial, and I should have known then not to hire her for my wedding. She was flexible with the costs of the services, and seemed accommodating, but what I didn't know was that I would be sacrificing professionalism and experience! Fast forward to my wedding day, Carola arrived about 30 minutes late, and didn't seem to care at all. Aside from DJ, who again, was phenomenal and managed to do 8 girls' hair, in addition to mine in just 4 hours, Carola brought another 'stylist' to do the remainder Bridesmaids' hair. This person, does not even do hair professionally! She even told one of my bridesmaids that she just does this on the side, and brought CVS brand hair products-- it doesn't take much to realize that this person doesn't truly do hair. All of the girls who had their hair done by her had to get fixed by one of my bridesmaids who just happens to do hair professionally, and thank goodness for her, otherwise 4 of my BMs' hairs styles would have looked terrible. Carola is a great talker, and you believe her when she speaks, but I found my experience disappointing. I was very happy with MY overall look, and in the end all of the girls looked great (thanks to my cousin hairstylist), but the dishonesty is something that I cannot get past. While Carola is a wonderful artist, she doesn't bring a great team with her. She finds who she can and some of these people clearly don't even do this for a living.

Dear Emily,

Thank you so much for sharing your concerns. Your feedback is very important to me!

We were so excited to work with you for your special day! I am pleased that you were very happy with the overall look that I provided for you along with my senior stylist DJ. You were an absolutely beautiful bride! I was glad I was able to offer my services to you and work within your budget. Nothing is more important to me than accommodating my client’s needs.

However, I apologize if you were disappointed with the work of that particular stylist who did work with some of your bridesmaids. Every artist and stylist I employ is absolutely a professional. That particular hairstylist studied at Paul Mitchell, a very highly regarded styling academy, and has provided wonderful services at many weddings.
I truly feel there was some miscommunication between a few of your bridesmaids and that stylist, but ultimately if any of their hairstyling expectations were not met, that is something I take very seriously and will be personally reviewing with the stylist. I have maintained my quality, integrity, and brand of work for 23 years and your concerns will be a priority moving forward.

Best regards,
Carola
