Karen was amazing! Her and her staff did my hair and make-up for me and my 6 bridesmaids. I was very happy with how everything came out. She was professional and very responsive to be e-mails and did everything she could to accommodate my vision for my wedding day. She was helpful in providing feedback and was very patient with me. She is very reasonably priced and I would recommend her to anyone. I received countless compliments on my hair and makeup and I could not have asked for more.

Karen Lee and the rest of the hair and make-up team wore wonderful and a great value! I was looking for a natural elegant look and Karen Lee really delivered. She also didn't seem fazed that I didn't have my idea for a hairstyle super-duper nailed down, even the morning of the wedding. (After the trial session I realized I wanted different look.) She looked at the pics I liked and listened to the look I was going for and created it on the spot! She asked for feedback as she was going along to make sure it was a look I was happy about, and of course it was! She was very flexible, because she had just finished me and I realized I had forgotten to put my contact lenses in. I put them in and of course I got a little fluid around my eyes, and she happily touched up the look!

Relatedly, the whole day even up to standing in the back of the church with my father I felt remarkably calm. Then, they opened the doors and I immediately started crying the whole walk up the altar. Her make-up held wonderfully! I couldn't tell a difference at all! Another potential complication, the wedding car was a convertible and my hair was in an up-do. I put on a headscarf (a la Grace Kelly) and was worried either the wind or the scarf would mess up my hair, once again it held beautifully!

My family who had their hair/make-up done by Karen's team looked remarkable and were extremely happy with their look and the value!

All-in-all they had amazing artistry and had a value that is hard to believe (especially for Southern California!)

Karen did my make up for both my engagement and wedding and I was 100% happy with the results. As you can see from her blog and many photos posted here, she makes you a better you - natural and yet glamorous (just what you need for pictures). She also did all of my bridesmaid's makeup and they were all very happy with their look.

Karen also took the time to do my hair 3 different styles and times until I was happy with my look. I was completely lost in how I wanted to look, and Karen was happy to give me various looks to try out. I was very indecisive about my eyelashes and karen gave me 4 or 5 different lengths and thickness to try. She is just very accommodating, kind, and patient!

She is super responsive via email, phone, text. I even emailed her about random stuff up to the week of the wedding and texted her phone numbers the night before. She follows up with you instantly! So refreshing!

She's been in the business for many years and knows what she is doing. For my wedding she came super prepared with anything and everything - even stuff we forgot to bring. She was just a life saver and a pleasure to be around. One of my favorite wedding vendors. Thank you so much Karen!

Karen and her team are wonderful! Services included hair and make up for 8 bridesmaids, makeup for 2 moms, and bridal hair and makeup for myself. We received so many compliments throughout the day! I never wear makeup, and Karen's makeup was so natural and emphasized our special facial features. I highly recommend Karen!

Karen and her crew are the absolute best! Not only do they provide exquisite hair and makeup services, but they are a blast to talk to and have around! Karen was so wonderful for my sister's wedding that she was an obvious choice for my own when the time came. She listened to what I wanted and gave me a thorough trial that boosted the confidence of my wedding day look through the roof! I felt my absolute best that day because of her magic and so did my bridesmaids! Definitely worth the money. I have now done both regular and airbrush makeup with her and she's a master at both. And ALWAYS opt for the fake eyelashes. Karen knows her stuff.

Karen was recommended to me by a friend who got married last year - and I'm so glad she did! Karen was very professional and responsive in her communications, and was flexible in trying to work with my schedule when I booked my trial session with her. Since I was planning my Southern California wedding from NY, I especially appreciated when vendors were flexible with scheduling in-person meetings with me for the couple of times I was in town before the wedding. I also researched and considered other makeup and hair artists, but I liked that Karen understood the "natural, but enhanced" look I was going for during my trial, so I decided to book her for my wedding day. Karen's prices are also competitive with other makeup and hair artists in the area, and she even offered a little bit of a discount for booking my and my bridal party's hair and makeup with her.

On my wedding day, Karen and her assistant Lyly showed up on-time and were very professional and friendly as they did our hair and make-up. I barely slept the night before and also had a bit of a cold, so I was a little worried about looking very tired. But Karen did a phenomenal job in transforming me from tired to gorgeous for my wedding day! Karen and Lyly also did the makeup and hair for my three bridesmaids and my mom - and they all looked GREAT as well! My groom also loved my hair and makeup. He typically doesn't like it when I look like I'm wearing a lot of makeup, but Karen did such a great job that I didn't look like I was wearing a ton of makeup at all, but I still looked good in pictures. Karen gave me a touch-up kit before she left, which was useful for that time between the ceremony and reception when I wanted to freshen up a bit (though, Karen did such a great job that I didn't really need much touching up). My makeup and hair lasted for the entire day (about 12-13 hours) - and my makeup was still flawless at the end of the evening. Absolutely one of my favorite vendors for my big day!

But Karen did a phenomenal job in transforming me from tired to gorgeous for my wedding day! Karen and Lyly also did the makeup and hair for my three bridesmaids and my mom - and they all looked GREAT as well! My groom also loved my hair and makeup. He typically doesn't like it when I look like I'm wearing a lot of makeup, but Karen did such a great job that I didn't look like I was wearing a ton of makeup at all, but I still looked good in pictures. Karen gave me a touch-up kit before she left, which was useful for that time between the ceremony and reception when I wanted to freshen up a bit (though, Karen did such a great job that I didn't really need much touching up). My makeup and hair lasted for the entire day (about 12-13 hours) - and my makeup was still flawless at the end of the evening. Absolutely one of my favorite vendors for my big day! Read less
