Karen and Adarely were both AMAZING to work with!!! I looked and felt like a million dollars on my wedding day! My hair and makeup was flawless! Leading up to our wedding day the communication and trial run went smooth and made me feel comfortable knowing I had chosen a very reputable business and took away any anxiety I may have had with trying to plan a destination wedding. Adarely also did my flower girl and maid of honor's hair and makeup and they both looked amazing!!! I highly recommend Karen's Hair and Makeup Artisty if you want to ensure that you look great for your big day (or any other special event) and be treated as a valuable customer!!! Thanks again Karen and Adarely!

Amazing ladies to work with! I never got to actually meet Karen but she is quick to respond and very informative, Janice who I worked with is AWESOME!!!! From the trial to the finished product of hair and make up on my wedding day she left me feeling beautiful! Janice was so helpful and is very likeable, she is very talented!

The day of my wedding Karen had 3 girls come out to our hotel and Indian Rocks Beach to make us look beautiful for my wedding day. Rocio, Janis, and Amanda came out around 9:30 to do hair and makeup for 8 people. We had a great time and they made us look absolutely stunning! I could not have been happier with the way we all looked during my special day! I didn't want to take my makeup off at the end of the night because I loved it so much! All of my bridesmaids were very happy with the way they looked! I would recommend them to anyone looking to be beautiful on their big day!

Karen and her team did a great job with hair and makeup for my entire wedding party. They were flexible with our schedule, very knowledgeable and did my hair exactly the way I wanted it, even though they worked under some tough time constraints. I highly recommend Karen and her team for your wedding hair and makeup.

Better than I could have ever imagined! I was absolutely obsessed with my voluminous hair and glamorous makeup for the entire wedding day, I even wore both to the Sunday brunch!

Karen was such a joy to work with, she totally understood my vision and the look I was going for, I felt so confident on my big day thanks to Karen's hair-styling talents!! She truly is an artist, I love how I looked on my wedding day and insist on showing the photos to everyone :) Karen takes the time to listen to what you want and to make you look absolutely fabulous for your special occasion.

I was overly pleased with Karen's skills. She did my sister's hair, which we both thought turned out better than her hair on her own wedding day!! She also did my hair and makeup. I looked so flawless that my nickname for the rest of the day was "Barbie". I felt so pretty on my wedding day and I have Karen to thank for that. I'm so glad I called her a month or so before my wedding! I had a brunch wedding and she arrived at my hotel at 6 am to get started. All around, I am super thankful for her. I would definitely recommend Karen to any bride wanting to feel and look special on their big day!

I used Karen's Hair & Makeup for my wedding makeup. Rosie was my artist and she is amazing, and she is very, very talented. She was able to match my eye shadow to my bridesmaid's dresses perfectly and I got complements on my makeup all night long. Rosie also completely covered up 2 large tattoos that otherwise would of clashed with my dress. Everyone could not believe how my tattoo's "disappeared". It seriously looked like I never had them in the first place! I am so grateful for that because though I love my tattoo's, they were not part of the vision I had of me in my wedding dress. Karen is very nice to deal with and always answered any questions or concerns I had promptly. Though they did not do my hair for the wedding, Karen herself did my hair for my bachelorette party and I got so many compliments on it that night. If I already did not have a hairstylist by the time I was lucky enough to meet Karen and Rosie, they for sure would of been doing my hair for the wedding as well. I truly am very pleased with Karen and her artist Rosie. Thank you again, Rosie for making me look and feel so beautiful!! All evening long, my husband kept telling me how beautiful my eyes were! That made me feel so special! If you are looking for these services, you will not be disappointed with this company!!

I scheduled for someone to do my hair and makeup a week before my wedding. The lady showed uo on time and finished quickly but did a fabulous job. I believe her name was janice the day just went by so fast. I didnt really know what I wanted for makeup or hair and she made them both look amazing and lasted all day! Nothing fell out of place or looked like I was wearing too much makeup. It gave me a nice glow and came off when i took it off that night.
I would say perfect and had no problems.

I had a early morning ceremony and the girls Karen sent did an amazing job on my mother, mother in law, two bridesmaids and me. Rosie did a wonderful job getting everyone's hair done quickly and beautifully. Janis did a great makeup job on everyone and me. Janis did an amazing up do for me and my hair stayed perfect all day, even on a windy outdoor wedding on the beach.

What can I say but thank you, thank you and thank you again! I live in the UK and got married in Clearwater, so trying to find hair and makeup from overseas was a gamble, and how it paid off!
Karen and Janis came to our villa that we were renting at 6.30 in the morning of the wedding and did such a fabulous job on myslef and our two daughters who were bridesmaids. Karen had had food poisoning a few days before and even though she felt so awful, she did an amazing job of my hair and make up and her professionalism never waivered. I cannot recommend this companuy enough but the beautiful job they did and helped to make our day soo soo special. Thank you again

Karen and her girls did an amazing job with my whole wedding party. I had two different locations for her to go to and they were so accommodating. I was a difficult bride who didn't know exactly what I wanted and they showed me photos and gave me some great advice. I would totally recommend to any bride. They did all the timelines for us and finished ahead of time.

Karen was absolutely amazing and made my day easier than I could have ever imagined. Having her come to you takes away so much added stress and allowed me to get ready in a comfortable setting. I have never felt so beautiful in my life. She definitely has a gift! And my bridesmaid was simply stunning. Hands down the best experience of my life and I'm so glad that I had Karen involved. She was also very attentive in my many many emails that I sent in the couple months of planning my out of state wedding. Thanks for everything Karen!

Karen was a gem! My wedding was on the beach in 40 MPH winds thanks to hurricane Sandy and Karen made sure my hair stayed in place.... And it still looked great hours later even after photos! She airbrushed my make up and my grooms and he loved it too! He was in love with my eye make up and was more than pleased with my appearance!! She was awesome and so was our experience!!

Thank you so much, Jessica. I'm so glad your hair held up. That wind was brutal! I'm surprised it did hold up. When I was loading up my car things were flying out of my purse and I had to go across the street to get one of them and the wind was worse on the beach than on the street. I'm really happy you were both happy. You looked amazing!!! I'm not patting myself on the back. You were a great canvas to work on. You have that natural beauty. It didn't even look like Chad had any makeup on at all. Thanks again!!!

Karen was FABULOUS! She did my hair and make-up and my daughter's (my flower girl) hair. I could not have asked for a better experience. I was not exactly sure what "look" I was going for, but Karen knew exactly what I wanted. I am from Ohio and traveled to Florida for a destination wedding. I was a little worried about finding someone via the internet, but thankfully Karen's reviews were all true! She is truely a master of her trade. i highly recommend her to any bride who wants to look her best on her wedding day!

I can't say enough good things about Karen and her stylist Adarely! Karen did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it was stunning. I don't think I've ever felt so beautiful. Not only did she do an amazing job, but she is so sweet and caring. She made sure that I was completely happy with everything. Adarely did my sisters hair and makeup for her and she looked so beautiful. The best part was that even after all of the dancing and wedding activities were done, I still looked like I did when the ceremony started. Her prices are the best I've found, but the work they both did looked like they should have cost twice the amount. Thank you both for making my wedding day so fantastic!!!

I can't say enough good things about Karen and her stylist Adarely! Karen did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it was stunning. I don't think I've ever felt so beautiful. Not only did she do an amazing job, but she is so sweet and caring. She made sure that I was completely happy with everything. Adarely did my sisters hair and makeup for her and she looked so beautiful. The best part was that even after all of the dancing and wedding activities were done, I still looked like I did when the ceremony started. Her prices are the best I've found, but the work they both did looked like they should have cost twice the amount. Thank you both for making my wedding day so fantastic!!!

I recently got married at the Grand Plaza and Karen did my hair and makeup along with my mother's and sister's hair. I had a destination wedding so I had to choose someone by simply reading their reviews. I am so happy we chose to use Karen!!! She was nice enough to do the trial run the day before my wedding due to it being a destination wedding and she took her time to make sure I was happy with the results. I took a couple pictures of styles I had in mind and she gave me the perfect hair-do! On the day of the wedding, Karen came to our hotel so that we didn't have to travel. I would also recommend using the airbrush make-up. I was a little hesitant at first because I don't like heavy make-up but it was actually very light and natural looking and it still looked great at the end of the night, even with my oily skin!

Karen and her team were amazing! My wedding was on a Monday so finding someone open to do wedding party hair was a challege. I found Karen's Hair and Makeup Artistry on wedding wire and corresponded with her via e-mail. Very quick responses to all my questions and concerns. It was so nice having them come directly to our location, and they made it alot of fun. The hair and makeup was fantastic, much more than I had imaginged. I was impressed with everything they did especially because we are from MN so there was no time for a trial run. I would highly recommend the airbrush makeup for any bride-to-be. We had an outdoor beach wedding and my makeup was flawless from noon to midnight. I have oily skin and figured by the time the wedding was over and photos were taken, my makeup would be a mess. It looked fresh from start to finish, even through some happy tears. Thank you very much to Karen and her team, we looked stunning and our pictures are wonderful.

We planned our Clearwater Beach wedding mostly online and over the phone, since we live over 2 hours away. I researched ever single hair/makeup artist that serves the Clearwater area, looking for the best reviews and the best prices, and BY FAR Karen had both. There were dozens of companies to choose from, but Karen was the only one with reasonable prices that didn't gouge for an early morning start (which worked for us because we had a 10am ceremony), AND ALL stellar reviews. Karen was quick to respond to all my emails and the morning of the ceremony she was right on time at 5:45am with a team of girls to do hair for myself and my entire bridal party. ALL did a beautiful job!! Karen also did my makeup, and to make me look like a beautiful bride at that hour of the morning truly was the work of an artist! And bless her heart, Karen was sick that morning, and even though she was feeling miserable, she did an outstanding job. My whole bridal party loved their transformations thanks to Karen and her team. If you are looking for beautiful work and a great value, you won't regret calling Karen!

Karen scheduled 2 professionals to handle hair and makeup for my daugher's wedding. She was very responsive in scheduling and pricing was very competitive. They did the hair and makeup at the church which was convenient to all. Emily and Jaunita did a great job and we enjoyed spending the day with them. They were flexible too, helping out the Groom's Mom in a hair crisis at the last minute. Thanks so much.

This lady knows how to make you even more beautiful than you already are. Karen worked with us from the trial run all through till the day of the wedding. I highly recommend you do the trial run so you can get to know her & when the day of the wedding comes BAM she is your fairy godmother who has made you more beautiful than Cinderella. My skin the day of the wedding was very horrid. Karen knew exactly how to fix the problem & NO ONE could even tell I had a huge ZIT under my nose. Thanks Karen for giving me flawless skin on my wedding day. I received so many compliments on my hair & make-up.

Karen made a schedule for everyone to follow for the morning of our wedding so everyone would know who to be with and at what time. She was able to get myself and my 6 bridesmaids ready for pictures by 11:30 am and have my family (another 10 people) ready by 2:30pm. I would 100% recommend her for your wedding. Not only is she great at what she does, she comes to you and she is a really nice person.

Karen is great!!!! She did a trial hair run for my daughter (the bride) the day before the wedding. It took twice as long as we thought because my daughter had waist lenght hair and Karen insisted she would not charge additional for it. The day of the wedding she came to our location and brought an additional make upartist and hairdresser to do make up and hair for 3 others in the bridal party, myself and two others for makeup. She provided a timeline. She was ontime, on schedule, personable, professional and she and her make up artist really did a standout job.

The additional hairdresser did a very good job on two of the bridal party that knew what they wanted their hair to look like. When I was having my makeup done she did the hair for my 11 year old granddaughter and made her look like she was a 30 year old schoolmarm. When I asked her to do something to make it look less severe she suggested I "put flowers" in it to make her look younger and wouldn't change it. My granddaughter did not like it and her father was not amused. I had a lot of people comment on it. She also did my hair which I liked but it would not stay in the partial updo she put it in.

I would highly recommend Karen and would give her 5+ stars across the board except for the other hairdresser.

I had my hair and make-up done by one of Karen's girls-Janis. She did a really good job. I forgot to bring my veil and headband to the trial (duh!) but she winged it and my hair turned out just fine on my wedding day, even though she hadn't practiced with my veil/headband. I didn't have a lot of ideas for how I wanted to do my make-up so I let her give me suggestions-she was also glad to adjust anything I wanted to change.
I appreciated that she was flexible in being able to accomodate my trial in the evening. Additionally, I was very glad to find that it wasn't a problem that it was only going to be me getting my hair and make-up done, as I didn't have a bridal party.
I would recommend both Karen and Janis!

We all had airbrushed foundation and lashes done, which made everyone look fabulous. 3 of the 6 of us do not wear makeup regularly, but this make up did not make anyone uncomfortable. Both mothers went first, and we weren't paying attention to the time, so they took much longer than expected and although I, the bride, was originally scheduled for a full 2 hours, she had to be rushed and we still got to the Aquarium an hour after we had scheduled. I was concerned about this since I had an intricate hairstyle from the early 1800s I wanted to replicate with a tiara. Karen pulled it off though! I was hoping for longer ringlets around my neck and face, like in the drawings I had for reference, but we were packing up to get out of the door and Karen had to trim the hair around my face and neck quickly. I looked like I had stepped out of a Jane Austen novel - and everyone loved it!

I also had to blend my eye makeup a little when I got the aquarium since it was very dark and I have such a light complexion, but except for some splattering on my neck from the airbrushing, which can be blended with liquid foundation, the makeup stayed on all night and through the next morning! Normally I have bone-straight hair, but the curls she put in stayed with me until 3 days after the wedding when I unfortunately had to give in and wash all of the product out of my hair.

Karen was wonderful! She came to my home to do a trial run for my hair and makeup and then came on my wedding day to do my hair and makeup and that of my mother and bridesmaids. She was very personable and kind and went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the results. My pictures turned out beautifully and a big part of that was the beautiful job Karen did. I felt beautiful on my day and I'm so thankful that we chose Karen to be a part of our wedding preparations. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a stress-free experience and a beautiful look on her wedding day.

Karen thanks so much! I have never felt so beautiful. After you were done I looked at myself in the mirror and was totally stunned - I felt like a princess and never once worried for the entire evening. I really recommend the airbrush makeup to anyone considering it. It goes on light as a feather and lasts all night long.

Overall Excellent Service and GREAT with a large group!

Hi all. FYI, I am the super hideous one with the long brown hair in the very last photo in the gallery here. As you can see, Karen works miracles. I initially chose to interview Karen because out of 10 hair and make up teams, she responded to my inquiry the fastest. As you will learn, it is crucial for a bride's vendors to respond at lightning speed, which Karen always did.

I am so happy that I went with Karen for my big day. I had a total of 9 women getting hair and make up done that day and her team did an excellent job with such a large group. My maid of honor told me later that "it was the best she ever looked!" due to her hair and make up.

We had a few minor blips on the day itself. Firstly, Karen herself was running about 45 minutes late due to traffic so I was a little behind schedule. Second, one of my bridesmaids was not happy with her hair and make up from one of the team stylists so Karen (wonderfully) agreed to fix it. My bridesmaid's hair ultimately turned out as she wanted. However, this put us even more behind schedule and I ended up feeling rushed.

Everyone's hair and make up held up throughout the night…except mine :( My hair fell out midway through the reception, but by then, I was having such a blast that I didn't care…until I saw the reception pictures. Not exactly cute. My make up did hold up throughout the night. Let me be clear though, for the initial ceremony and posed pictures, my hair and make up looked awesome, which is the important part.

I would suggest to make sure you have plenty of time padded in…then start 2 hours earlier than you think you need to. No bride (or maid) wants her hair done at 9AM when the ceremony isn't until 6PM. TRUST ME, for this one day, IT IS WORTH IT!

After 28 years of not having a thing done to my hair, I now have Karen highlight, trim, and style my hair on a regular basis because I enjoyed working with her so much!

Karen was great to work with. The girls that ca me to our hotel were very nice and professional. I had a photo of the hair and make up I wanted, simple do, sides pulled back with a flower on one side. My stylist sprayed A LOT of shine spray in my hair, it looked very wet, this was a concern of mine and the stylist said it would "dry in about an hour", great...except I was getting married in 30 minutes. After three attempts with my simple hair style I ended up with a formal up do. (Not what I wanted for my beach wedding) Knowing I was not happy with my hair the stylist still left.

The other stylist knew I was not happy with how I looked and stayed to help me out. There was so much shine spray on my head we had to put baby powder and dry shampoo on my head to get rid of the saturated grease look! Finally, after being 10 minutes late for my own wedding Jamia made me feel beautiful with her amazing work! I am so grateful she stayed to make sure I was happy.

All in all the pricing was great, the stylists were nice.

I did a trial run bringing pictures of what I want my hair and girls hair to look like. We did makeup and hair, taking pictures and was suppose to write down. My big day she walked in not having enough staff, forgot pictures of my hair and the girls, and didn't bring the written down makeup either. I spent the next 45 minutes looking for new styles for my girls and myself. I was not suppose to be stressed it was the worst part of my whole day. I wanted to be done by 9, since my photographer was coming at 9:30. At 9:25 she wasn't finished. She finished my hair with an attitude and my photographer showed up with me rushing. Was not a happy client at all and would not recommend.

Wow, that's harsh. You're right, one of my girls didn't show up and she will NEVER work for me again. I am so sorry that happened. Because of that we did run late. Looking at magazines for new styles for 45 min. is quite an exaggeration! I did misplace the paperwork with your trial run pictures on it and I'm sorry for that. I am so sorry you feel you had a bad experience. That should never happen to any bride on her big day. I am truly sorry!!! I wish you would have let me know that day though. You said you liked the way you and your girls looked. I'm confused about the "attitude". That one shocks me. I'm sorry!

Working with Karen was the WORST experience I've ever had with a vendor...or any company for that matter. I paid for trial hair & makeup (plus added a tip), AND put down a $75 deposit. 7 days later I had to cancel due to a variety of reasons. Although I cancelled promptly...AND I didn't sign any contract with her, she refused to refund anything more than $4 and change.
My trial was on 2/10/12.

Haley agreed to the contract that said if she cancelled 30 days prior to the wedding date the deposit was non-refundable. She emailed me stating the contract looked good and she paid the deposit. She cancelled 35 days prior and I pro-rated, following the contract. She wanted the full deposit back and according to our agreement that is not what she was due. She is a young girl who does not understand the meaning of contracts and agreements. She was very happy with the trial run and said she was happy that she was able to book me. A couple weeks after that she emailed me saying her bridesmaids refused to have their hair done and someone else wanted to do her makeup for free as a gift to her. I was holding up my end of our agreement and looking forward to doing her hair and makeup but she cancelled with to short of notice to receive the total deposit back. If anyone would like to see the proof of this, I can supply it. I am sorry to say, this girl is just young and not familiar with business and agreements. If she wanted her full deposit back she should not have agreed to the contract and cancelled so soon before the wedding. This is very unfortunate because I really liked her and I thought she was a sweet, honest girl. Haley, I'm so sorry you feel this way but, you did agree to the contract. Yes, you did pay me for the trial run, I worked for it and you tipped me because you liked how you looked and that had nothing to do with the agreement for your wedding day.

I have never run into this sort of thing before. I run my business in an honest, ethical way. If I owed you anything, I would surely give it to you. In the future, I suggest you read over the agreement very carefully before you agree to it.
