Kim Larson Bridal Makeup and Hairstyling
"I used Kim Larson for my wedding and it was an awful experience. I strongly recommend finding someone else if you're looking for bridal hair and/or makeup for your wedding day. My trail run was just fine and she did a great job and was realatively nice. Never warm and fuzzy... Finally, I booked her for my wedding day. She charges $110 for bride hair and another $110 for makeup. Bridesmaids are $75 for each. Pretty high... My wedding was to take place at 3:30. Photos starting at 1:30. I requested she come between 10 and 11. Kim insisted on coming to start at 9:00 a.m. She informed me of this after paying her in full (which she required before the event). I was very much against starting so early considering she said she would spend 30 minutes with each of the bridesmaids and an hour with me and would have an assistant. There was no reason to start so early, except that she had another scheduling conflict. That by itself was very poor service and had me totally annoyed the morning of the wedding. Btw... she was gone by 11 a.m. so she certainly didn't need to be there at 9:00 am. for a 1:30 p.m. start. Anyway, that aside, my hair was a mess! The make-up was okay, but my hair was horrible and I spent the entire rest of the day trying to re-fix it every time I had a minute in the restroom. What a mess. One of the girls who had her hair done ($75 for 20 minutes of work) had to re-wash her hair and re-style it after Kim left. It was horrific. I wish we had pictures to post. I'm not a bitter bride and my wedding was absolutely amazing! I've written rave reviews about every aspect of my wedding - the florist, photographer, DJ, caterer and the venu. Everything was quite perfect and I'm really not that hard to please. Kim was just really that bad."
