My name is Lara C. Keefe, I offer services in hair styling and makeup. I rent space at Keith Paul Salon in Manchester, NH and am willing to travel for weddings, events and photoshoots. For all pricing and services offered please go to my website www.larachristine.com. Link to website is also here at the top of my vendor page. Please take a look at my website for more examples of my work, my rates, and other contact information. I have an extensive photography background and have been doing hair and makeup for weddings, events, and photoshoots since 2006.

THE MINIMUM PACKAGE: $475.00 not including travel costs. If you do not have a bridal party or you have only a couple of girls interested in hair or makeup, please inquire about the minimum package.

USEFUL INFORMATION:

Most brides will book a trial run for hair and/or makeup. Trials can be done way in advance if you are shopping around for a stylist or they can be done a little closer to the wedding if you are certain you want to book and get the wedding date secured first. For the trials, most brides will bring in inspirational photos (either printed or on iPad) but if you do not know what direction you want to go in with your hair I can certainly help you with that! For makeup, my personal style for bride/wedding party makeup is natural with a "pop". I can certainly do more dramatic looks if requested. I worked as a freelance photo assistant in the Boson area for 6 years and worked mainly on fashion shoots for clothing catalogs. I worked very closely with hair and makeup artists and have drawn my style from that experience. For foundation I use MAKEKUP FOREVER HD, and for all other makeup I use a few different professional brands. Over the years I've stuck with what works best and lasts the longest. I have had many compliments on the staying power of my makeup application. Also, with the Makeup Forever HD foundation it is a super-refined makeup made for HD cameras and it is so light weight and feels like your wearing nothing at all.

To secure a wedding date I do ask for a signed contract and $200.00 deposit, paid by check, which will go directly towards your balance.

For the wedding day, I write up a beauty schedule, (with your guidance on whom should go first/middle/last) it is a great way to stay on time and on task and make certain that everything stays on schedule. The big day starts with the hair and makeup styling so it's so important that the timing is perfect and I work really hard to make sure that happens!

Lara did a beautiful job with my makeup/hair and the makeup and hair for my mother. It was very important to me to look natural and elegant, and she really hit the nail on the head. She is great at working with little to no direction (for clueless folks like me), or if you have something very specific in mind (like my MOH, who knew exactly how she wanted her makeup and hair). Lara has experience in the photography industry, and you can really tell that she does makeup in such a way that it will look great in person AND on camera - not just one or the other. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Lara did the hair and makeup for my wedding and she was PHENOMENAL! I found her by searching online and was blown away by her reviews, which were completely accurate. I came to my bridal trial showing her a few photos that had inspired what I had in mine for the big day and she took the photos and made them reality. She was responsive, professional, flexible, and right on time. She and her assistant were so fun to work with on the day of my wedding. She truly made me feel like a princess. My makeup was flawless and my hair was perfect. She was so patient in teaching my mom and sister how to successfully remove my veil. If I did it all over again, I would be sure to use Lara again. Choose Lara for your wedding and you can rest assured it will be the best choice you make!

Lara was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is super responsive over email and easy to coordinate with. Since I was planning my wedding from across the country, she kindly worked with my schedule for the times I was back visiting to do my trial appointment. The morning of the wedding went super smooth thanks to her well managed and efficient schedule she works with you to build. I had 7 bridesmaids, MOB and myself all getting hair and make-up done by 12:30pm, and Lara and her team executed flawlessly and my girls looked absolutely stunning! She took the feedback I gave her from my trial and made my vision come to life. I felt so beautiful and was obsessed with my hair (as were my guests!) and it help up through all the dancing over the course of the night. I am so thankful that I was able to book Lara and her team for my wedding day. Do yourself a favor and do the same!

I cannot recommend Lara and her team enough. I was so happy with both my hair and make-up for my wedding and all of my bridesmaids looked amazing. I changed how I wanted my hair at the last moment and Lara was so accommodating and provided the look that I was hoping for. She was so pleasant and a joy to work with and I am so happy she could be a part of my day. I would absolutely recommend her!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lara. She was willing to travel over 40 miles to my wedding venue to do hair and makeup for 7 people- all of whom were very pleased with her services. After my initial makeup trial, I had some feedback on my eye makeup. She was more than willing to work with my vision, and on the day of my wedding, I do not think I could have looked more beautiful. I was also very happy with my hair style. Because of the nature of my hair, I used extensions which Lara handled like a pro. Despite the torrential downpour on my outdoor wedding ceremony, my hair stayed intact the whole night. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxed, responsive, willing-to-travel stylist!

Lara did an amazing job on my makeup and hair for my wedding day. She made me look so beautiful, I couldn't of asked for anyone better. She also did all the makeup for my bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law and her colleague Cheryl did their hair. They made us all look elegant which is so fitting for anyone's wedding day. She was timely and made us all feel comfortable. I highly recommend Lara for your wedding or any other occasion.

Lara and her fellow hair stylist Cheryl were so wonderful! She is so friendly and upbeat and helped to calm my nerves the day of. Her prices are so reasonable for the work that she does. You can tell that she really takes pride in her work and cares about her brides. They did hair for 11 people and two flower girls the day of my wedding and everyone looked stunning! I absolutely loved my hair. For my sister she wove in some real wildflowers and it looked amazing! My bridesmaids said out of all the weddings they’ve been in that they liked their hair the most from Lara and Cheryl. I can’t recommend her enough- she is fabulous and I would definitely work with her in the future!! Thank you Lara for making me feel so beautiful!!

Lara could not have been more perfect! My bridesmaid, my mom, and I were so pleased with our hair and makeup for my wedding. Lara and the two other women who did our hair and makeup were outstanding. I changed my original idea from my hair/makeup trial and Lara did exactly what I wanted. She went above and beyond, staying until the photographer/videographer arrived. My bridesmaids really appreciated the last minute touchups she did before the ceremony. She has a very calming personality which made the morning of my wedding that much easier. She traveled to our venue which was really helpful. Lara was always quick to respond via email and very organized creating a schedule for the hair and makeup. Again, I can't say enough how happy we were with Lara!

Lara was absolutely amazing to work with for my wedding. As I am fairly new to the area, I had no idea where to start when it came to finding a hair and makeup artist. After finding Lara on Wedding Wire and looking at all of the pictures both here, and on her own website, her style was exactly what I had envisioned for my own wedding and I sent her an inquiry, praying that she would be available for my wedding date!! Lara got back to me right away and we set up an appointment for my hair and makeup trial. I showed her a few pictures of the hairstyles on Pinterested that I liked. I have pretty fine, straight hair that I find impossible to do anything with, so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to do any of the styles I liked. But Lara was able to make my hair look even better than the pictures I had showed her! And the makeup was absolutely beautiful- it was the natural but sophisticated, elegant look that was so perfect! Before the wedding, Lara gave me a day of schedule for all my bridesmaids and the MOB & MOG which I loved (I am a huge schedule person so someone else giving me a schedule to help organize the day was amazing!) Lara and the two other stylists she brought with her did hair for myself, six bridesmaids and my mom and my groom's mom. She traveled to the bridal suite at my reception venue, and she and her team were so much fun to hang out with as we were getting ready. I even had two bridesmaids who absolutely hate getting their hair done, and they both loved the way their hair came out! I felt absolutely stunning and flawless and couldn't have been happier with my hair and makeup on my wedding day. I truly felt like a model thanks to Lara!! I would recommend her to anyone.
