After the trial with Kerry and Cori, I was "sold" and very impressed with their quality of work. I felt that I was in good hands, making the price worthwhile.

The morning of the wedding unfortunately, was a different story. They showed up late, at least 15 minutes after me and my bridesmaids, but I initially was fine with it, because I trusted them and their wedding prep-expereince.

Where things ended up falling apart was when they started on my make-up and hair after lunch, which ended up being WAY too late. Although they told me during the trial that I, the bride, was the number one priority, I ended up feeling like the left-overs.

Perhaps this could have been avoided by adding another hair or make-up person because we had 4 people getting make-up and 8 people getting hair done.

Because we got started on my make-up and hair so late, it ended up cutting into our very expensive "first-look" time with our photographer (which we carefully created a timeline for) when then cut into other important photo time.

With this realization, I wound up in tears. I had been under the impression everything was under control, when in fact in hindsight I feel I needed to be my own stage manager that day (which everyone says should not be the case).

By the time I got to hair, I was extremely stressed, but again, knew I was in good hands, that is until Cori asked me what I wanted to do with my hair, as if the hair-trial had never happened! I felt as if it was becoming a cruel joke. We also felt so rushed that my headband was not as secure as it should have been and fell out during our first dance.

Although the quality of the make-up and hair was good (they know what they're doing), unfortunately this aspect of my wedding ended up being the most stressful part, which is still shocking to me.

In a nutshell, good quality artists, but I felt like I was an "after-thought" on the biggest day of my life.

Kerry, Cori, and Megan were amazing at our wedding this weekend! They did hair and makeup for 5 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and the bride. They were super fun to spend the day with, very flexible, and very accommodating. They didn't mind when a few girls asked for a hair change or additional make up, they understood that I (the bride) didn't want to be ready super early in the day, and everyone looked amazing. Kerry is very responsive and understood what each girl wanted. I didn't realize until the day of our wedding how important it was to have an awesome makeup and hair team and I am so thankful that our wedding coordinator recommended KLH. Thank you, ladies!!!

Kerry did the makeup for the four women in the bridal party and both mothers of the bride and groom for my wedding last weekend. She did the most amazing job making us all beautiful. She really listened to what we wanted to make sure our makeup was perfect and represented our personalities. When she was almost complete with my makeup and found an imperfection, she took part of it off and started again. The service was flawless and exactly what I wanted and needed for the big day. Kerry is a true professional and takes her work very seriously while also having a blast. Thanks to Kerry, my bridal party and I looked fabulous throughout the entirety of the event. I am so thankful to Kerry to adding a beautiful touch to our big day!

I chose KLH for my wedding day after great reviews from a friend who was recently married. Kerry and Cory exceeded my expectations. I first met them at my hair and makeup trial, where they made me feel extremely comfortable and they are so easy to work with. On the wedding day, the entire bridal party including both mothers, looked absolutely stunning. My hair and makeup stayed in place the entire night, and I received so many compliments. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great hair and makeup team on your wedding day.

First of all I am not the type of person to write reviews but Kerry and Cori of KLH makeup artistry were amazing! They really helped make my wedding weekend that much more special. I loved their work during my trial months before the wedding but they blew me away when they did my hair and make up for my rehearsal dinner. Their work was amazing and I had so many compliments all night which made me so excited to see what they would do for the actual wedding day make up. They made me and my large bridal party feel so relaxed and Kerry was just so fun to hang out with as she worked her magic. I honestly can say that I felt absolutely beautiful that day. Overall, I had a great experience with them and I strongly recommend them! They are worth it!

Kerry and her stylists are great! Our makeup looked natural and not caked on. All the hairstyles were unique to each bridal party member. They also styled two junior bridesmaid's hair and it held through the night! Which is a true testament to their ability.

I used Kerry's Hellwig's makeup services for my Wedding; and also Patti's for hair. It took 2 trials to get both hair and Makeup right, which was expensive, but worth it. I looked like a Queen on my Wedding Day; and my Maid-of-Honor looked soooo good! We barely even recognized ourselves when we looked at pictures from November 4th, 2012! And might I add, neither Patti or Kerry had seen my M.O.H. before that day - and she needed more help with hair and makeup than she'd originally thought.

What was really nice is that both Kerry and Patti made me feel relaxed when getting hair and makeup done, because I don't normally wear makeup or go get my hair done. So messing with either, or having those services performed is a bit off-putting for me; and my M.O.H. it was also very nice of Kerry to come all the way out to HayMarket at Patti's home salon, so it would be more convenient for me, as she was coming from Winchester.

But where they both really shone was on the Big Day, where they ran around and helped me get all the table favors and decorations up, since the previous wedding ran over and the previous' brides' stuff was still there! They didn't have to do that. And they huffed ALL the wedding gear to and from the Manor house several times, so it would be convenient for me to get dressed once they'd done with my hair and makeup. Again, they didn't have to do that.

Most of all, I appreciated their calm demeanor, when, after setting up the Reception Hall, I was finally able to sit down and let them work on me. Now their services aren't cheap - even with Patti discounting my second hair trial, but for how good I looked, and how both my hair and makeup stayed looking good the whole wedding, they're worth it. I just wish Kerry had been able to do my makeup for the Engagement Photo session at Great Falls Forest Park as we'd talked about prior to the photos, but I understand that kids' health issues don't take adults' schedules into consideration.

Kerry and Patty Ann arrived on time, got everything setup and started makeup and hair for the six bridesmaids. The Bride and Mother of the Bride only had makeup done by Kerry. They were very professional, personable, provided terrific service, and finished in time for everyone to get to the wedding. Everyone loved their makeup and hair. It was a beautiful wedding party, thanks to Kerry and Patty Ann. We would highly recommend them.
