In 2010, Kara was planning a wedding with the help of her mom Susie, and they were searching for a one-stop, experienced and credible makeup and hair team that could meet their needs. There was NO such thing! So we created the solution for the everyday busy modern woman…our award-winning Dream Team! Need skin, makeup, hair, or Men’s Grooming? Large, diverse party? No problem! Our perspective is unique… we were in your shoes, so we created a stress-free, full-service luxury experience for everyone.
I was really nervous about booking a hair and makeup artist for my wedding because your hair and makeup will be in almost EVERY WEDDING photo you take. All the wedding planning advice articles I read said to ask vendors what they would do if the worst happens, and sometimes it does. A few weeks before my wedding, the hair stylist who was supposed to be doing my hair on Kara's team unexpectedly passed away. Within days, Kara and the team had already figured out who would cover my wedding instead. Their concern for my day even while grieving shows their absolute professionalism. I can not recommend them enough.
Best Face Forward and their artists are truly amazing. We had Leanne and Nicole for hair, and Heather and Larissa for makeup. They did hair and makeup for a group of 11 bridesmaids, parents, and bride. With 2 hair and 2 makeup artists, they efficiently got us done in ~3.5 hours. They ran on time, were fun and upbeat in hanging out with us And, most importantly, they executed exactly what everyone envisioned for their hair and makeup. The updos lasted throughout the night and the makeup was beautiful. Would absolutely recommend them!
I called Kara after having an awful trial with another vendor. She very throughly assured me that everything would be okay and that their team would make me look my best on my big day. They didn’t disappoint! My trial with Susanne and Mandy calmed all my fears and I couldn’t wait to look the part for my wedding. On the wedding day, Mandy and Susanne were ready to go. One of the issues with the other vendor was an inability to work with hair texture and darker complexions and the artists at BFF had no issue with that at all. We felt beautiful and confident and our hair and makeup lasted all night.
Kara was great to work with and very responsive during the pre planning stages. On our wedding day, our stylist Markia was out of this world an amazing artist. She was warm, patient and worked closely with me to make sure I looked and felt beautiful. Did I forget to mention that this was the first time me and Markia ever met? Markia knocked it out of the park by making all of us look absolutely gorgeous. She also made the groom-to-be feel extra special with a wedding day facial as part of their services. Working with the team at Best Face Forward was a wonderful experience!
