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. PLEASE CHECK OUT the FAQ section and you will find answers to a lot of common questions about rates, travel, large groups, etc! Please take a look at my website for more examples of my work, my rates, and other contact information at www.larachristine.com . I have an extensive photography background and have been doing hair and makeup for weddings, events, and photoshoots since 2006.

THE MINIMUM PACKAGE: $400.00. 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 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.

I would absolutely recommend Lara as a wedding day stylist. Lara traveled to my hotel to do hair and or makeup for myself and 6 other ladies. We had a 3:30pm wedding and Lara showed up with another stylist and transformed us with plenty of time for photography before the ceremony. I don't wear a lot of makeup so I was very nervous about getting makeup done by someone other than myself but Lara made my look so elegant I would not change one thing. My hair and my bridesmaids hair looked amazing, I was so happy with the results. We took a chairlift ride to the top of a mountain for the wedding and had a reception until 9pm then went out to a bar after until about 2am and my hair and makeup still looked perfect! I would absolutely recommend Lara to any fuTure brides!

Lara did an amazing job on my wedding hair and makeup!! Lara and Joellen traveled to our venue and did hair & makeup for myself, 6 bridesmaids and my mom. They were great to work with, very organized and easy-going. I brought a few photos of what I wanted to my hair and makeup trial a few months before the wedding and Lara was able to capture it perfectly, and then recreate it for the wedding. My hair stayed put all night, and the makeup was very lightweight and also long-lasting. I would highly recommend Lara for your wedding beauty needs!

Lara does amazing work! She came to our hotel, brought a second stylist and did 7 updos and 4 makeup applications in under 4 hours. She uses HD makeup that photographs amazingly. I was able to do a hair and makeup trial, and Lara was able to take my ideas and create a gorgeous hairstyle that I was looking for the first try.

Lara provided hair updos for myself and four bridesmaids for my wedding. Her services were amazing! She is punctual, high skilled and professional at all times. I was very anxious about an updo for my wedding because I have never once had an updo that I liked due to the thickness and texture of my hair. However, after just the trial run I knew Lara was the right hair stylist! I was thrilled with my wedding hair and it lasted the entire night (almost 12 hours after it was finished!) My bridesmaids were equally as pleased with their updos. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for simple, classy, lasting, and beautiful hair!

Lara is incredible!! As soon as I saw her portfolio I knew that she was who I wanted for my hair and makeup on wedding day! She did such an amazing job with the whole wedding party's hair and makeup - everyone was so impressed and so happy with her work. She was able to give me exactly what I was hoping for: to look classic and not overly made up, and to actually look like myself on my wedding day. She was so flexible and calm throughout all the wedding day chaos, which was also greatly appreciated. She is truly talented and was a joy to work with - I highly recommend her!!

Lara and her crew did all hair and make up for my wedding two weeks ago. We picked her because she did our friend's wedding and we loved her work and personality. For our wedding, we had TWO brides, and TEN bridesmaids in need of beauty help, and Lara delivered. She was super accommodating, friendly, and available throughout the planning process. We both chose to go for up-dos for the trial, but later changed our minds and decided we wanted our hair down. Lara showed up on the big day and made our vision come to life. We looked SO GOOD. She really knows what she's doing. On top of that, she's just really cool. We had such a fun time hanging out with her and her team throughout the prep day. I would totally recommend her to anyone!!

Lara was amazing!!! I have to admit I wasn't the most prepared bride and I'm very indecisive when it comes to making decisions. Thankfully Lara was understanding and beyond helpful in helping me decide what would not only look best in general, but which look would suite me best. She listened to everything I had to said and was able to create a look that worked perfectly for me. I really enjoyed her company and my sister who is getting married soon even asked me for her contact info!! I highly recommend Lara.

Lara and her assistant provided hair and make-up to me and six bridesmaids. They came to my house and brought all the necessary supplies. They were on time and actually finished ahead of schedule. Everyone was extremely pleased with their hair and make-up services. They were also great to have around during that stressful day - they were very laid back and easy to chat with. I had a hair/makeup trial with Lara a few months before the wedding and she was able to take my vague ideas and turn them into something perfect for the wedding. Throughout the planning process she was very responsive with emails. Overall I was extremely happy with the services and I would definitely use Lara again if I needed to have hair or makeup done for a formal event.
