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!

Wow, thank you Amber!!! I'm so glad you were happy and felt so beautiful!!! That's my goal, not just to make brides beautiful, but to make them feel beautiful as well. That's what it's all about. Every bride should look and feel beautiful on the most important day of her life. I really enjoyed every minute of it!!! Thanks again for the great review. Karen

My best friend booked hair and makeup for her wedding with Karen's company. We had our schedules for each person set weeks in advance, (Karen, Adarely and Rocio were scheduled to come out) all seemed to be going well until the night before the wedding when Karen text messaged the bride at 10PM saying she wouldn't be able to make it herself because of a family emergency which later turned into "I figure out the family thing but now I took a pain pill for my back and I still can't come.." which was super odd and unprofessional - not to mention just about every word was spelled wrong and you could barely make out what it said. She also mentioned that instead of the original start time of 12:30, we would be starting at 11:30. We didn't want the bride stressed out the night before he wedding so we said okay and that was that. The next morning the bride got another text message that said they switched the time again and they will be there at 12 now. At this point it was getting a little ridiculous. 12 o'clock rolls around and nobody shows up.. (we start getting nervous because we originally had 3 staff members coming but because Karen took a pain pill we were down to 2) at 12:20, Rocio finally showed up and we get started. She did my makeup and hair first.. I showed her pictures of both hair and makeup that I was interested in.. my hair was so lopsided I had to try to fix it myself and it still looked like I slept on one side the whole night. My makeup was probably 2 shades lighter than my skin and I have never had so much eye shadow caked on my eyelids! It was so awful. I didn't even want her to fix it so I went downstairs and scrubbed half of it off and redid it myself. Adarely finally showed up and did 1 bridesmaids hair and makeup, the mother of the grooms hair and left. With still a bridesmaid, MOH and the bride to go. The MOH felt like a ghost she looked so pale and her hair was falling out 30 mins after she got it done. (Continued to next review)

(Continued from last review) Pictures were supposed to be at 5PM and it was after 4PM so the brides MOH called Karen to let her know how behind things were running and how there was only 1 girl there. There was no way Rocio could finish the girl she was working on and then do the brides hair and makeup without rushing through it to be done in 40 minutes. So after going back and fourth with Karen about it she called Adarely to come back and she agreed to give the bride $40 off her total. Once they were completely finished they refused to give the bride that discount because Karen called them and told them not to. Rocio and Adarely sat in front of all of us speaking back and fourth in Spanish (making it clear they were talking about us) we were in a hurry so everyone paid and the ladies left. The MOH again called Karen to let her know how awful of an experience this was and Karen repeatedly called her a liar. We had about 10 people in the room who saw everything that happened and she still had the nerve to call her customer a liar! So unprofessional and plain rude! Karen finally agreed to send the bride a partial refund and that was that. As expected – that refund was never sent to the bride. The villas where the wedding was apologized up and down (they gave the bride the referral) and assured her that they will NEVER use Karen’s company ever again. Such a scam!! Terrible, terrible customer service, way over prices and rude employees/owner. Save yourself the stress and money and go ANYWHERE else!

I hired Karen to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. She did an absolutely beautiful job. I was able to show her a few pictures that were what I wanted to do and she went to work. She went above and beyond what I had expected. I received complements the entire day. I had an outdoor wedding, and it was warm, so I was worried how everything would hold up. My makeup did not smear or change with the heat. My hair also stayed perfect in the humidity. I am so glad I chose Karen on my special day. I would definitely use her in the future if I ever have another event and I would recommend her to anyone!

Janis was able to squeeze me in at the last moment when my original make up artist fell through. I am so happy it did! Janis truly made me feel like a princess. The trial run and the day of were more than perfect and I cannot be more thankful for her making me look as good as she did. She took her time and really made me and my girls look like rock stars. For one of the best days of my life, she really made me feel stunning.

I booked Karen's Hair and Makeup for my destination wedding in Treasure Island. She worked with my bridesmaids, my mother and myself and I was very happy with her service. I got the airbrush makeup and received compliments all night long so I would definitely recommend that! Overall, I was happy with Karen's service and would recommend her to others.

Karen and Janis did my hair makeup and the four other girls' in the wedding party. It was hot and I was worried our makeup would melt. They did the airbrush makeup. They totally took the stress out coming to our condo. I felt like a princess, and so did the girls. I had never had my makeup done professionally before, and Janis did an amazing job for me. They were also very friendly and down-to-earth to work with, which I really enjoyed. We showed them some Pinterest pictures of our ideas and they matched them and made us shine!! I would highly recommend this company.
