Alina was amazing and I highly recommend her for both hair and makeup. My situation was somewhat unique in that I was only having hair and makeup done for me - most places that I contacted would not come for one person, but Alina was willing to do it. We did the trial far in advance and she was able to totally replicate the look months later for the wedding. She's very responsive, which is great when you are trying to iron down those final details. I have never felt more beautiful and she was such an important part of the day overall!

Alina was amazing at my wedding. She was very efficient and listened to what everyone wanted their makeup. She was especially attentive with me. My makeup held up perfectly through the night.

Nicole did our hair. She was also great! She brought an assistant along to help with curling and they had their process done to a science. They both were helpful with suggestions if any of the ladies weren't sure what they were looking for and knew how to adapt any style.

I can't recommend these ladies enough! Thank you for making us all beautiful!

Alina was absolutely fantastic! I felt so relaxed knowing that I was in such good hands on my wedding day. We had a trial first and while she did a great job, I changed my mind about my hairstyle a few weeks later. All I had to do was email her some pictures, and then she did exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. My hair and makeup looked perfect and lasted from 7 in the morning until 1am - even with a (careful) nap taken in the afternoon! I'm convinced that she can do absolutely anything with hair. As for makeup, I requested a very natural look, and that's exactly what she did. I hardly looked like I had any makeup on, yet somehow I looked a lot better than I do in "real" life. I think air-brushed makeup and fake lashes go a long way. On top of doing such great work, she was super responsive to all my emailed questions over the months and was very friendly - and pretty hilarious! - in person. She isn't cheap, but her pricing was on par with other vendors I researched, so she was definitely worth it. I couldn't recommend her more highly!

I couldn't have asked for a better hair and makeup stylist for my wedding day! Alina perfectly captured the look I had in mind for our rustic, outdoor event, and her attention to detail and professionalism at our trial really put me at ease. I also appreciated that Alina was willing to do services for just me, in contrast to other stylists who have very high minimum charges. Alina showed up exactly on time, took her time to make sure my hair and makeup was exactly how I wanted it, and was finished on time as well - a small detail but one that is really important on such a busy day! The whole process was seamless and my hair and makeup lasted all night long.

I got married during Memorial Day weekend and felt so beautiful thanks to Alina and Joy. They both arrived on time and got straight to work. Alina did my makeup and Joy did my hair. I had my trial with them back in February and decided I wanted to slightly change a few things for the wedding. They were both so accommodating and I received a lot of compliments! I've already referred the two of them to my friend who is getting married this summer and will be sure to do so in the future.

Alina (makeup) and Joy (hair) from Make-up and Hair by Alina G Karaman did a fabulous job on my wedding day! Both Alina and Joy, as well as the other hair stylist they brought along, really captured the hairstyles and makeup styles that I, my bridesmaids, and the mothers wanted. Everyone looked natural and beautiful! After a terrible hair and makeup trial with another vendor, I was so relieved to find Alina and her team - they were sweet, funny, professional, and really knew what they were doing. I felt confident from the trial with Alina Karaman that I was in good hands to look my best on my wedding day. In addition,their prices were very competitive for on site hair and makeup! Thanks again Alina!

My wedding was a couple of months ago and it was planned in a matter of a couple of months. Normally women have these vendors booked months in advance but there I was freaking out less than 3 weeks to till the wedding and no one to do my hair and makeup. I did a search on I believe it was weddingwire or the knot (one of them) and found Alina almost immediately. I called her and she was available and her prices seemed better compared to others I had looked at. So I booked her and hoped for the best. I was not disappointed. I never looked better! I had an evening wedding, starting at with pictures at 4:30ish. My bridesmaids, my mom, my mother in law, and I all had our hair and makeup done. We had such a big party Alina could not do the hair and makeup by herself so she arranged for Natalya to help her. Everyone looked so BEAUTIFUL when they were done. And my new hubby was left speechless when he saw me. I would strongly recommend Alina for her services. If I ever have my makeup done again I know who I am going to!

My daughter really liked her as well and even asked if she could come and do her hair again. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She really has the sweetest personality and made me feel very comfortable.

I found Alina (makeup) and Joy (hair) via my wedding planner and I am so glad that I did. They are both so great at what they do. They were both so easy to work with and flexible to work with me. The first time we met they came to my house and did the trial run. I loved Alina and Joy's work after she completed my look. For the wedding, Alina was prompt and was able to do my bridesmaids, mother, and myself in a professional and timely manner. We all looked awesome and was so happy that she was able to be our makeup artist. Everyone loved what she had done for us. Joy was equally as good with hair as Alina is with makeup. Joy was very flexible. She was able to meet twice so that I made sure my hair was just what I wanted. After the second hairstyle, I knew that it was the one. She, too, was prompt and professional in doing what she had to do with the time that she had. All of the ladies hair looked wonderful. There were many compliments on that day. Both were very friendly and personable. I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends that are getting married or need hair/makeup for an event. Thank you!

Alina focused on what I wanted but was realistic with what would work to hold throughout the day and help position my veil. Alina chatted with us like she was one of the girls and was a great addition to the day! My mom and I got compliments all day about my hair and makeup and it lasted the entire day. I highly recommend Alina for both wedding hair and make up services!

Alina did a wonderful job on my hair and make up. On the day of the wedding, I was still indecisive on how I wanted to do my hair. Alina stepped in and said she would decide for me, and my hair turned out beautifully. She also did my makeup, which turned out fantastic as well. I asked for something natural, but a little more... and she did a great job. She brought another stylist with her to do 3 other girl's hairs, and their hair turned out wonderful as well. Overall, she did an excellent job with hair and makeup, showed up on time and we were all very happy with the results. I would highly recommend her.

Alina did a great job on my hair and make up! She listened to what I wanted and was able to show me different hair styles and make up techniques during the trial. I was then able to take pictures of the different looks and decide on what I like the best. The day of the wedding I was relaxed and comfortable knowing that I could just sit back and let her do her job. She also did hair for two of my bridesmaids and they looked great! They were both very happy with the results and told me that they were glad I chose Alina to do their hair.

Alina G Karaman did hair for my mother, and myself (bride) for my wedding day. Everyone looked great! I had done a hair trial a month before the actual day. In general I liked my hairstyle, but by the time my wedding day come around, I decided to go for a slightly different look. I showed her a few pictures of the concept and she was able to run with it the day of the wedding! She is very talented with hair! She handled my family's requests/concerns with professionalism.

I would highly recommend her!
Thank you Alina G Karaman :)

Alina was FANTASTIC and I and my group of ladies can not say enough good things about her. For starters I booked her to close to the date of my event and we went from 2 girls getting their make-up to 4 girls. Alina was beyond flexible and accommodated us all. Punctual, responsive and worth every penny!! I've already recommended her to someone in my office who is getting married this fall.

I found Alina through the Knot's vendor section and couldn't have been more happy to stumble upon her. She came to my house two months before my wedding to do a trial which I absolutely loved. It happened to be my birthday the next day and even though I know you should wash makeup off at night- it stayed perfectly, and looked great the following day.

For the day of the wedding, Alina arrived to the hotel right on time and set up. She did makeup for 3 other women in addition to myself. Everyone loved their makeup and the experience as a whole. Alina really asks you about your comfort level in how you should wear your makeup. Even with the airbrushing I had done, I still felt like I look like myself, which is of the utmost importance. She's very friendly and funny and make the experience fun. All of my family who came to the room to watch me getting ready really adored her. Would recommended 100x through and through!

I booked Alina one month before my wedding - cutting it close, I know - but she was accommodating of my schedule and prompt with her email responses. Alina took care of my hair and makeup (trial and day-of), mother of the bride hair and makeup, and makeup for my four bridesmaids. The looks were beautifully natural and the makeup did not feel heavy - a plus for a person with sensitive skin! Everyone's makeup lasted throughout much dancing at a summer wedding. Overall, I was pleased with the quality of work, Alina's professionalism and pricing.

Alina was great! I was a bridesmaid in a wedding this past weekend and did not know of anyone to do hair and make up for me as well as another bridesmaid. I looked online and saw that Alina had great reviews so I contacted her and I am so happy we did! Every hair style we showed her she knew how to do. I got so many compliments on my hair as well as my make up. I did not have to touch up my makeup (or hair) once which made the wedding less stressful. I was so happy with the outcome I booked Alina for another event! I would highly recommend her and am happy that we were able to book her! She is extremely professional and knows what she is doing which put us at ease! You are in good hands with Alina!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Alina for my wedding in early May 2012. We worked together all weekend for my Indian wedding festivities and she made each experience easy and extremely stress free. Always at least 10 minutes early, Alina helped me create 3 different looks (hair/makeup) to match my outfits, and I received great reviews/compliments through out the weekend. I did several makeup trials and was so impressed at my trial. We emailed back and forth for weeks regarding different looks etc, and she always responded within minutes - even my wedding coordinator commented on how great she was. She was also able to help me drape my 'dupatta' for the ceremony which was an added bonus. I would highly recommend her.

Alina gave me the exact look I wanted on the day of my wedding.

Initially, when the makeup was done at the trial, the groom thought it was too much. So on the day of the wedding Alina assured me that she would tone it down. She gave be a light airbrushed makeup, because the groom wanted me to look as natural as possible. When he saw me, he said it was perfect. I felt and looked beautiful. In addition, Alina had a great personality; which made me and girls feel so comfortable. She arrived on time and worked with my budget. Thank you Alina!

Alina was wonderful to work with, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending her services to anyone who needs professional makeup done.

I found her through her great reviews online, and wasn't disappointed when we set up the "trial." I was impressed by the fact she includes fake lashes in the trial and on the big day. I was debating whether or not to get Latisse, or eyelash extensions -- but Alina solved that problem! Her lash extensions (small clumps of lashes -- not the whole row) were natural looking and long lasting.

As other reviewers have noted, she listens to what brides are looking for. After our trial, I looked great in photos, but felt like I was wearing too much makeup and didn't feel like myself. We talked about this, and on the big day she struck the perfect balance -- I wasn't uncomfortable in my own skin and still looked great in photos, MUCH better than if I had done my makeup myself.

And, Alina is just a hoot to work with. She kept me and my bridal party in good spirits, it was like hanging out with a friend! Thanks, Alina!

I used Alina for my June 2012 wedding. I had a bridal party of 9 girls, with two mothers and my neighbor all getting their makeup done that day (my neighbor jumped in there at the last minute, and Alina was able to accommodate her and still keep on schedule). Not only did Alina and her team complete everyone's makeup ON TIME, but everyone looked really, really beautiful once they were done. We all had different makeup tastes; one of my girls did a more romantic look where I went more modern, and Alina and her team were able to satisfy everyone's individual wants. I'd definitely recommend her for any wedding, as she made the makeup aspect of the day run as smoothly as possible.

During the trial, she made sure to record what products she used on me, and then emailed the pictures she had taken on her DSLR camera afterwards. I had some concerns regarding the mascara and fake eyelashes after the trial, but everything on the wedding day was perfect. She traveled out to my hotel in Leesburg to do my makeup, and it lasted the entire night (through rain & tears)!

I did my makeup trial with Alina about a month before the wedding. She did an amazing job! When I showed my mom, she thought it needed to be a little darker, since it was a night wedding. I thought about it and ON THE DAY OF MY WEDDING, I changed my mind. I went with my mom's suggestion. I talked to Alina when she arrived, and showed her the flowers, and the peacock theme. She did an even better job! The makeup was stunning, and I can't wait to see it in the pictures.

I love makeup and have been applying it myself for years. I also don't like most bridal makeup because it usually looks too artificial and "cakey" to me. That said, Alina did an INCREDIBLE job doing my sister, mom, maid of honor, and of course my own makeup.

From the first trial when Alina did traditional and airbrush makeup for me, I knew I found a makeup artist who understood clearly what the "best version of me" means. On the wedding day, Alina was in the hotel early, had a clear schedule of whose makeup is done when, and we were ready on time. She even stayed longer (which she really didn't have to) to help me with my headpiece, and to check the final look.

Alina was fun yet calm, and had the same effect on me. My makeup stayed intact through many hugs, dancing, and some sweat and tears. Alina not only made us all look gorgeous, but she inspired confidence in me that I did not need to stress about my makeup at all. On my wedding day, such contribution was invaluable. The combination of Alina's talent, work ethics and great personality is something I wish every bride had on her side on her wedding day.

I love makeup and have been applying it myself for years. I also don't like most bridal makeup because it usually looks too artificial and "cakey" to me. That said, Alina did an INCREDIBLE job doing my sister, mom, maid of honor, and of course my own makeup.

Alina was a fantastic make-up artist as well as a very easy person to work with. She came all the way to Herndon to do my make-up trial, which was super gorgeous. She also came to my mother's house and did my mother's make up trial. She was willing to do the trials more than once, especially when we realized that I might need an airbrush make-up shade that she didn't have. She was willing to order it and try it, regardless of whether or not I was going to go ahead and use it. She was super patient with me on the day-of, especially when I was having issues with my lipstick (and it was me having issues, not her). She did a fantastic job. I can honestly say that every picture I have is gorgeous due to her make up and my mother looked so beautiful too. I would recommend Alina any time, she is very talented and a pleasure to work with.

Alina did my bridal portrait and right then, I knew I wanted to work with her for my wedding. She was on time and very professional, more than anything she was interested in how I wanted to look, so I basically told her how I wanted to look and she gave me that perfect look for the wedding. She was so good that she did my bridal party too. I would recommend her to anyone that does not want to stress about make up on your a very special day like your wedding. If I had to do this all over again, I would definitely work with her. Thanks Alina for making me and my wedding day beautiful.

I just got married at the end of July and Alina did my makeup and my mother's makeup on the big day! I found Alina online and was impressed by her portfolio and her very reasonable pricing (especially for airbrushing!) She was easy to contact via email and always responded quickly to my questions. She came and did a trial and proved to be very professional. I appreciated her willingness to give me an expert opinion while also taking into account my preferences and normal makeup routine. On my wedding day she was really flexible and professional. She was willing to come work in the hair salon where I was getting ready with my bridesmaids and arrived early to get all set up. She did an AMAZING job with my makeup as well as my mother's makeup. We both looked wonderful for pictures and it lasted for hours...even in the July heat! I would highly recommend Alina, she was great!

I absolutely love the job that Alina did with my makeup! I received so many compliments from others, and it came out very nicely in pictures. We did a trial prior to my wedding, but I thought that the makeup was a little too dark. I described how I wanted the makeup modified, and she nailed it on the day of the wedding. Besides being a great makeup artist, she was a lot of fun to talk to. I highly recommend her work.

She really listened to what I wanted and I could not have been more pleased with the results! My make-up lasted all night and made me feel just as beautiful on the outside as I felt on the inside on that special day!

My makeup lasted all day (and into the night), with minor lipstick touch ups. I highly recommend Alina, she caters exactly to the looks you want. She's fabulous!

I’m new to the DC metro area and was about to take me engagement photos during the Cherry Blossom festival. Being new to the area, I didn’t know many vendors around here, so I started to browse the Internet and read some real reviews. I decided to hired Alina after reading her reviews. Alina is friendly and very professional. She has a natural talent and an eye for beauty. I was very impressed on how she had all the newest makeup and tools with her and immediately I felt very confident that she was going to do a great job. The makeup turned out to be perfect for the occasion. I forward pictures to my friends and they loved the end result and made great comments about my makeup.

Alina did my makeup for me and I could not have been happier with the results! I loved my make-up make-up and cannot believe how many compliments I got throughout the evening. I looked amazing. My photos turned out beautifully and a huge part of that is to how great I looked - all because of Alina!

Alina is a true professional who listened to my preferences and really knows what she is doing. As someone who wears minimal makeup daily, I was initially a bit worried about looking overly made-up, yet Alina listened to what I wanted the evening of and exceeded my expectations.

Alina was absolutely fantastic to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for make-up services. She was very nice and friendly, the booking process was extremely easy as she was also very responsive via email.

I will definitely be using Alina’s services again!

I got my wedding make-up done by Alina in late September. I was nervous about getting my make-up done because I didn't want to look too overdone. I am also of Indian descent and wanted to make sure that the colors were good for my skin tone. Alina did a fabulous job! She listened to my concerns and took her time during both the trial and on the day of the wedding. She also took pictures so that I could see what it looked like on camera, and also so we could look back at them later. My make-up was beautiful - it enhanced my features but didn't look overdone. I felt like a more sophisticated version of myself. The makeup lasted through the outdoor ceremony (it was warm outside!) and reception. My mom and aunt also got their make up done and loved it. Alina, thank you for helping to make my wedding day calm and stress free.

I had the pleasure of using Alina G Karaman's services for my wedding (both hair and makeup). Alina has true talent and did a fantastic job on my hair and makeup as well as my MoH's. She takes her craft seriously and ensures everything is just right! I chose Alina because she had a great profile, but also did not require all my bridesmaids use her services (they are on tight budgets) in order to come to me on the wedding day(unlike other providers of hair and makeup services). The individual fee was slightly higher (worth it), but she only required 3 services to travel to you (this meant my hair and makeup, and either a hair or makeup for someone else). Alina listens to what you want and identifies the themes between inspiration pictures you may provide. My lipcolor was made from two lipsticks I loved, and she melted part of them to make me my own custom color that I took with me throughout the day! Everyone comments that I looked flawless on my wedding day, and adored my hair and makeup! My mom had been against me wearing my hair up, because she worried it would look too sprayed or "done". I wore my hair up, and Alina made it look natural and not sprayed. My mother was incredibly pleased with my hair (which says something)! Still, my hair lasted from 1pm to past midnight easily and could have lasted hours more!

Alina is a wonderful makeup artist! About 4 weeks before my wedding she came to Blondies, the salon in DC where my hair stylist works, to do a makeup trial after I had my hair trial there. I was a little nervous about getting professional makeup because I didn't want to look fake or too unlike myself on my wedding day - but, I knew I wanted to look effortlessly good and, as we all know, that takes a ton of effort. Alina asked me ahead of time if I would prefer classic or air brushed makeup - I didn't know what to tell her so she let me do the trial with both kinds of makeup. One side of my face was airbrushed and the other was traditional.

After she applied the trial makeup, she took pictures with a professional camera so that we could see how they came out. I loved the way that my skin looked, but was a little concerned about the eye shadows and colors. We worked together to try different options and combinations.

I never felt rushed and always felt like Alina was working hard to make sure that I would look my best.

On the day of my wedding, she came early to the hotel to make sure that we could take our time without rushing. She also did the makeup for my mom and mother in law. We were all very happy with Alina's work. She managed to make us look fresh, natural, and still glamorous! It was great. Everyone complimented us on our makeup!

I highly recommend Alina. She's also fun to work with because she has a great sense of humor. She really helped me to feel at ease on my big day!

I got the airbrush done, and I loved it! She did a great job on my make up and it was great that she was able to meet me in DC for my trial and then Hyattsville for the wedding. I would and I have recommended her to some of my friends.

Alina did a great job on hair and makeup, but she is a little pricey. She will work well with you to figure out the best look. She will definitely let you know her opinions too, which I liked.

Alina was amazing. We met at a bridal expo and she was able to book me for my trial later that month. Alina was very professional and attentive to my needs. She was able to work on my schedule and travel to where I was. She did make up for my bridesmaids and mother as well. Everyone loved the make up. I will remember Alina's service the next time I need to have my make up done. I will definetly recommend Alina to my friends.

Alina does great make-up but I did need 2 hair trials to get the right style and then on the wedding day her assistant ended up doing my hair which worked out even better because she did an excellent job. She wasn't very flexible though, I asked if she could do my makeup in my room and the 5 bridesmaids, 2 mother, and grandmother next door and the answer was no because of time constraints. She had another wedding booked 2 hours away. We were paying a lot of money for all of the women to have their hair and makeup done, we thought this was a small request especially since we had the ushers willing to help her move. In the end I wasn't feeling too hot the morning of and she did come to my room with her assistant to do my hair and makeup.

Makeup and Hair by Alina Karaman responded with the following comments:

Dear Lisa Zanzarella,
I was wondering about the low scores – what made you leave them? I was sure you were left feeling great about the services that were provided, and that all the guests were happy with their hair and makeup.
You mentioned that we had two trials, and this is true. Some brides have two, or even three, trials if they choose to. Meeting for the second trial was your choice, and if you did not feel like working with us after the first trial, the service should have been cancelled in the first place.
You mentioned in the review that I said no to your request about going “next door” to do your hair and makeup, but you did not mention that I actually stated that it could be done for an extra fee (for time consumed to pack/move/unpack). Also, it was not mentioned in the review that “next door” actually meant having to drive to another building, and that it took an extra 30 minutes total to accommodate that request. Also, we were rushed because of the last second request, and that was the reason why my assistant did your hair. If I had done your hair, your whole wedding would have been delayed for at least 30 minutes. It was not mentioned that the photographer had asked to be done with you earlier, but we were still able to finish as he had asked, and actually had some extra time to stay with you for touch-ups after you read the letter from your fiancé. Yes, we did have a wedding after yours (6 1/2 hrs away, not 2). We work on up to three weddings a day. Despite this, we were still able to accommodate your time constraints.
You also did not mention that we were able to accommodate your last minute request to add four more guests for hair and makeup, and that I was able to find professionals that agreed to drive a 60 mile distance on a very short notice.
I think that if you leave such a detailed review, you could have mentioned these details as well.
We do as much as we can to accommodate the most demanding needs of our clients.
