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 (above) here and you will find answers to a lot of comon 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. This package can include bridal hair & makeup, and 2 other services (hair or makeup) your choice. The minimum rate does not include travel rate or the trial. I do not offer any other packages, if you are in need of more services than what is included in the minimum package all services will be priced a la carte. Bridal hair & makeup is $200.00 and all other services (hair or makeup) are $75.00 each. A short hair blow out is $50.00. Travel is .70 cents a mile round trip from Keith Paul Salon, Manchester, NH. All other rates (flower girls/Jr.bridesmaids, etc) are listed under FAQ and on my personal website, link is at the top of the page.

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. The contract can be written up as soon as you have confirmations from your bridal party, Moms, or any persons wishing to have their hair and/or makeup done. It is best to get these confirmations as early as possible because I need to plan and hire a second stylist for the day if need be and with everyone's schedules filling up so fast it is best to have everything confirmed early. If you cannot get commitments from your friends/family yet but would like to put a deposit down (prior to contract) to secure the date you may do so.

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 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.

Lara was such a pleasure to work with. She was so pleasant and easy going, and handled my huge bridal party with a smile on her face the entire morning and afternoon.

Before my wedding, I had come in for several trials because I couldn't decide what I wanted and she was totally receptive each time and always gave me what I was asking for. The day of my wedding, she arrived early and followed the schedule that she had given me literally down to the minute.

All of my girls were so happy with how their hair came out and we all got tons of compliments on all our hair! Even my mom (who can be crazy anal) LOVED her hair! We all have different textures/lengths but Lara was able to accommodate all of us.

She was amazing! I'd recommend her to any bride!

Lara was very professional and responsive from day one. She did amazing job with both my wedding hair and makeup (and for my bridesmaids, as well)! She was able to recreate the exact hairstyle I wanted from a photo I showed her, and my makeup was gorgeous, without being too over-the-top. I would absolutely recommend Lara for weddings or any other events.

Lara was absolutely fantastic and I would use her again in a heartbeat. What I loved most about her style is that none of us looked overly made up, everyone looked completely natural! Lara was patient, arrived right on time, and worked closely with everyone to make sure she got them looking just as they envisioned. She even took the time to give my mom some advice on how to make her eyelashes look longer. She was so sweet, I cannot say enough about her and the great job that she did. Thanks so much for everything, and for being a part of my day!!

Lara is awesome! What a pleasure to work with. Not only did she do an amazing job, she is so friendly and down to earth that she made even my mom feel comfortable who never gets her hair done. She made my hair look EXACTLY like the photo I showed her. I feel very lucky I found her.

Lara's work is beautiful and professional. She tends to work with a more natural bridal look, which was exactly what I was looking for. Our hair and make-up was elegant and beautiful.

I also really appreciated her communication. She went above and beyond and I felt confident long before our wedding day that we could count on her to to arrive and finish our hair and make up with plenty of time to spare before pictures started. It's nice to have one less thing to worry about the day of your wedding!

Definitely book early with Lara because she books up fast!

Lara did a wonderful job at my wedding and I would recommend her to anyone getting married. Not having to worry about hair and makeup on your wedding day makes getting ready fun. The ladies sat around and drank champagne watching each of the ladies get beautiful!!

Lara and one other person drove 1 hour north and did hair and make up from me, both mothers, and my 3 bridesmaids. All the women have different personalities and each one of them loved their hair and make up. Lara was so cool she even helped tousle my 13 year old nephews hair to establish the 'cool' look he wanted.

Lara did my hair and makeup for my wedding and was absolutely amazing!! Not only is Lara talented and professional she has a great easy-going personality that makes her so easy to work with! Everything came out perfect and help up beautifully throughout the whole wedding even though it was humid and drizzling! Lara and her assistant Joellen were extremely accommodating. I contacted Lara 2 weeks before my wedding because I had an awful makeup trial with someone else. Lara was already contracted to do my hair so I contacted her in a panic and she was able to fit me in right away for a makeup trial and it went very well. She uses great products that hold up well and was extremely professional. She was able to get an assistant last minute (thank you Joellen!!) so she could accommodate the 5 added makeup applications as well as everyone's hair. I also had a bridesmaid have a "bridesmaidzilla moment" the day of as she regretted not booking and requested hair and makeup that day and Lara and Joellen made it work. Lara, thank you so so much for everything!! I will be sure to recommend her to everyone!

I booked Lara for on-site makeup for my wedding day. I did a hair and makeup trial with her. The makeup came out beautiful but the hair was a hot mess. I expressed my concerns to Lara and she did her research on how to perfect it and she had me come back for a second trial that came out perfect. The day of Lara showed up nice and early with her assistant to do my hair and makeup along with 3 bridesmaids and 2 moms. They were very efficient and did an excellent job. No ones curls fell, there was no need for emergency bobby pins because they did such a great job with the updos. Everyone's makeup was beautiful. And the value was completely unmatched. Even if I went to another salon, it would have been much pricier than having Lara come to our hotel. I would definitely recommend Lara to future brides!!

Lara Christine responded with the following comments:

Thank you Nikki! I just have to explain the "hot mess" to anyone reading this review. The first trial was a huge voluminous bun on the top crown area and needed 2 hair inserts/donuts for support. I did not have any hair donuts in stock and tried to get this look without them, needless to say it did not work and the bun fell. The second trial was perfect. I did some research and bought what I needed to support the big bun.
Thanks again Nikki, you were all really fun to work with!
