  • I was blown away by the services provided by BFF. The communication was on point, professionalism is top notch, the makeup artist and hair artist (Marta and Leanne) were SO friendly, professional, and just amazingly skilled at their respective crafts. There is a fair amount of paperwork to complete before you get started, but I honestly really liked this because I could tell I was dealing with a professional company. I did a hair and make up trial for myself, and day of hair and makeup for myself and my sister and I found the price to be very reasonable. My trial was great- Marta and Leanne listend carefully to the vision I had for my look and perfected it. Leanne worked with my natural curls and made them so beautiful, soft, but defined. Marta gave me the natural, romantic make-up look I wanted, all the while letting my freckles show through too! They were sweet and made my time in the chair so pleasant and low stress. I got married in June in Virginia so it was hot and h... Read more

  • We hired Kara from Best Face Forward for our engagement session and wedding. We had a sunrise engagement session, so we had to get up super early and met with her at 4 AM! She did an incredible job with our makeup and hair, which allowed us to look amazing for our engagement photos! Kara feels like a friend because she's easy to talk with and we had fun working with her. She is very patient to listen to our requirements and made changes based on my feedback. On our big day, Kara and Leanne worked with us on our hair and makeup. Their AMAZING work made us feel confident and allowed us to enjoy our look for the day. I received a lot of compliments on my makeup and hair! Thank you, Kara and Leanne, for your magical work!!! We highly recommend them!!!

  • I highly recommend Best Face Forward for wedding hair and makeup! Kara was absolutely wonderful! I had a last minute wedding and Kara was very kind helping me looking for the perfect artist in a very short time. Priscilla did my hair and makeup and she was the best! She did exactly what I wanted and I was thrilled with the result. I showed her some pictures of hair and makeup I liked, and she got the idea I had in my mind. She is very talented and a very nice person!

    Stephanie: Thank you for your sweet words and we feel the same about you! We saw your pictures and they are stunning,,sometimes the smaller intimate weddings are the best. xo

  • Had such a great experience with Best Face Forward! Kara was easy to talk to for planning my hair and make up look. Camille (hair) and Josh (makeup) both did such an amazing job! They were so friendly and attentive during the trial, listening to any concerns I had for my look on the big day. Everyone was super professional and easy to work with, I felt so comfortable on my wedding day and received so many compliments about my hair and makeup all day! Highly recommend Best Face Forward!!

  • Best Face Forward was the best decision I made when it came to hair and makeup for my wedding day. From the very first interaction with Kara, she was super straightforward about the entire process, and helped me every step of the way. Kara was always available whenever I had a question or if I wanted to reach out and send inspiration for my looks for myself and my bridal party. I opted for the trial and wedding day package for my looks and I am glad I did. The trial felt so personalized and the stylists (Andrea for hair and Heather for makeup) made me feel comfortable and beautiful. They were super knowledgeable and creative. Seeing the look before the big day put my mind at ease. Wedding day went so smoothly and both Heather and Andrea were amazing. They were flexible with schedule and last minute change ups, and made us all feel beautiful for the occasion. Throughout this entire process of planning, with the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, I knew that I had to be extra cautious, ... Read more

  • Best Face Forward, especially Nicole (hair) and Larissa (makeup) provided outstanding service! Our day started at 5:45am for makeup and 7am for hair and all of us were ready according to our timeline. Both hair and makeup lasted with perfection the entire evening, more than 8 hours after services were completed. Larissa provided makeup services from those in their 20s to those in their 70s and all of their makeup looked smashingly beautiful. Nicole provided hair services to all, and all hair styles were naturally stunning! Both makeup and hair looked beautiful in photos and those who received services from Nicole and Larissa received many favorable compliments throughout the day and evening. I highly recommend Best Face Forward for your hair and makeup needs!

  • Kara made planning my hair and make up all the way from Alaska painless. And WOW Leanne and Josh did the best hair and make I have ever had done for a wedding. They were super easy to work with and they made you feel like family from the trial all the way to my wedding day. Highly recommend this amazing team.

  • The Best Face Forward team couldn't have done a better job - I am SO glad they were a part of my big day! Kara is responsive, thorough, and so easy to work with. Leanne did an incredible job on my hair - she nailed my vision on the first try, and when the wind was gusting up to 30mph on our wedding day, I didn't have a hair out of place the whole afternoon. She is a miracle worker! Alena's makeup job was absolutely stunning, she listened SO well to my requests and patiently worked with me to make some last minute unforeseen adjustments. I felt so taken care of by the whole team, would chose them over and over again! Thank you, BFF!

    Katelin: Thank you so much for your review! Leanne and Alena loved working with you It makes our job so easy and enjoyable when we get to work with people like you. Can't wait to see the pics :)

  • Working with Kara and Alena was a dream. Kara was incredible in in reaching out, organizing, discussing exceptions and logistics. She even delivered face and eye samples to my home in person prior to the wedding to make sure my skin was in the best form. Alena was the makeup artist. Alena was patient, gentle, professional and VERY talented! I was obsessed with my trial make-up but somehow Day of make-up was even better. Best of all she did make-up for my mom, mother-in-law and two sisters-in-law...all who also were very satisfied with Alena’s services and how sweet she was. I worried and stressed about many things leading up to our wedding, but looking our best with the help of Kara and Alena was not one of them. I cannot recommend them enough. I am looking for reasons and events to use them in the future. Thank you!!

  • The whole team at Best Face Forward is wonderful! Kara is great at communicating and coordinating all the moving parts. The trial was invaluable - I felt comfortable and heard when sharing my thoughts and how I wanted to change things. Larissa did a great job with our makeup and Antonia is a mastermind with hair! They were flexible and timed out the long getting-ready morning really well - we only had a few people get makeup and everybody got a different (but related) hairstyle and everyone looked beautiful! Highly recommend!

    We loved working with all of you! Thank you so much for letting us share a little part of your special day. We wish you all the best !!!

  • Kara and her team did an AMAZING job with my hair and makeup. I was so happy with how it turned out! I was also so deeply appreciative for their flexibility and accommodation after we hand to change our plans due to covid. Given everything else we were dealing with, it was wonderful to have such flexibility, right up to the last minute. I've already booked them for the large reception we'll be having in 2022 and can't wait to work with them again!

    I'm so excited we get to see you again in the coming year! Because every bride deserves to celebrate more than once!!! Can't wait! Thank you for entrusting us during this time!!

  • I knew right away I needed lots of help with my makeup when planning my wedding because I have such limited knowledge, but Kara and Josh totally came through! I had a trial for my engagement shoot with Kara Josh was my artist on the big day. They were great listeners, nailed the "natural look" and made sure I was happy with the finished product. I felt so confident on my wedding day! (also if you are wondering if you should do the faux eyelashes or not...do it!)

    Hah!!! Sydney- you rock!! We appreciate you and thank you for entrusting us during this crazy time!! Josh and I both loved being with you! You are a total joy to work with!!!

  • Bri styled my hair as well as my mom and bridal party and did a phenomenal job. I am very picky about my hair. It is frizzy and really hard to control. However, I did not worry about that at all for my wedding. I didn't really know what I wanted, so Bri helped me decide on my look. She had great ideas and made my hair stay in place the entire night with no frizz!! She was on time and very professional. I highly recommend Bri with Best Face Forward.

    Thanks Caroline! So glad Bri was able to really help you find what you loved! We appreciate you and always value another vendor using us for their own wedding! It means so much!
