  • I loved Best Face Forward for my wedding! They put all my fears and worries at ease at our makeup trial, and helped me figure out what vibe I wanted for my wedding. The day of the wedding, they went out of their way to make sure everyone in my bridal party was feeling beautiful and confident. My artists were incredibly personable and made the whole experience very relaxing and enjoyable. Highly recommend!

  • Everything was perfect! Our wedding plans shifted dramatically due to COVID and Best Face Forward was more than accommodating. We did a virtual trial instead of an in-person trial. Kara and Antonia listened to everything I wanted and gave great suggestions. The day of went incredibly smoothly and my makeup and hair turned out better than I ever could have imagined. They were incredibly professional and fun. I would highly recommend Best Face Forward.

    Thanks Cat for the opportunity to make sure you still had a great day despite all the changes! The smaller affair with your family was so nice and we loved getting to know them better! Moving, getting married and covid= an eventful couple of weeks for you!!! We appreciate you!

  • When Covid19 forced my fiancé and I to have to rapidly change all our wedding plans, Kara and her team were there for us! My fiancé's family was in the country specifically for our wedding, so we decided to go forward with an intimate 10-person ceremony so that his parents could be there with us. Literally all of our other vendors cancelled, but BFF was there for us all the way. Antonia and Kara came to help me, my mother, and my sister get ready on the morning of our wedding. Even though the wedding was very different than planned, I still felt beautiful thanks to their great work! I'm so glad that even though we didn't have professional photography, everyone who got to see us via Zoom or our wedding selfies could still see our lovely hair-dos and make-up! I would say that if they can come through for me in the midst of a global pandemic, there's nothing they can't do for you for your wedding. I 100% recommend!

  • Working with Kara and her team was fantastic. Leanne did my hair and Alena did my makeup. I was worried that to would look overly made up and my hair would look like 90s prom hair but they made me look like a more glamorous version of myself. They came to my house for the trial and made me feel so at ease. They provide a TON of information and are super thorough. It was rare to find a team who would come to me where I was getting ready without a large bridal party, but they do! I only had 2 bridesmaids. They loved their hair as well. My hair and makeup stayed in place all night. They even gave me skin care advice which I am still using and loving. Highly recommend!!!

    Nancy- we love brides like you who we get to stay connected to through servicing you with products! Truly a full service experience that we strive to have for you!! We appreciate you so much!

  • I loved my hair and makeup. Kara and Leanne were so easy to work with. They performed a trial run before the wedding day, tried a couple looks, and then we figured out a final look. They took their time to make sure I looked exactly how I wanted to look on my wedding day. Day of the wedding, we even tried something a little different. I am so happy I chose them. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Meredith- we loved your laid back nature. Clients like you make our job easy!!! We love that you get to continue with your great skin care and we get to be of service to you essentially every day!

  • Kara and the entire Best Face Forward team (Bri for hair, Susanne for makeup) were such a blast to work with. I knew everything was taken care of due to their extensive pre-work with my bridesmaids and I, and both Bri and Susanne showed up early for both the trial and the day-of services. All of my bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup, and miraculously, it stayed put over almost 14 hours of dancing and wedding celebrations. I cannot recommend Best Face Forward enough!

    Rebecca- you are simply the sweetest! We always know Jess's clients are going to be awesome, but man you were above and beyond! Thanks so much for making us love what we do!!

  • I had Susanne to do my makeup and Brianne for my hair and they were wonderful. Leading up to the wedding, Kara, the owner, communicated a lot so everyone knew what to expect. They provide a lot of information about their services, which may seem a little overwhelming at first, but there are absolutely no surprises. A few weeks prior to the wedding, I met up with Susanne and Brianne to figure out the game plan for hair and makeup. I did not have a lot of requirements, which they loved so they could be creative, and I couldn't have been more pleased with the results! On the wedding day, they were prompt and were super efficient getting everyone's hair and makeup done. They were so friendly and flexible; everyone loved them!

    Marrissa- the gals absolutely loved this reunion of sorts! Fun brides like you make what we do all worth it!! We enjoy getting to see fun clients like you over and over through the years!! Can't wait for the next time!!

  • Kara and Antonia were absolutely amazing to work with. After the initial trial, I decided I wanted to change a couple of things with my hair and makeup. Kara and Antonia were able to give me exactly what I had envisioned for my wedding day! While they were styling me before the wedding, Kara could tell I was a little anxious and overwhelmed, but she knew exactly what to say to help me relax! All of my bridesmaids loved them. I couldn't be happier with how my hair and makeup turned out. My hair lasted the ENTIRE night, even with dancing and jumping all around all night. My makeup was flawless and stayed put even after I cried my happy tears. Kara and Antonia, thank you for making me feel so beautiful for my wedding!

  • Oh my gosh, there aren't enough words to say how incredible Kara and her team at Best Face Forward are. I was first introduced to Kara years ago for a branding photo shoot with Heather Chesky (FAB photographer, might I add). Kara was so personable, down to earth, and funny. She makes every person who sits in her chair feel right at home, and walk out looking like a million bucks!! So naturally, I had to work with her again for my recent wedding! She was so flexible with our timeline (she came onsite at 7:00am to start bridesmaids makeup!!) and each one of my bridesmaids loved working with her! We were all so impressed that our makeup stayed on ALL day and night, a true testament to her expert application. She also uses products that work with all skin tones and sensitives. I would 100% recommend Kara and her team to anyone looking for professional makeup application! Kara also works with a WONDERFUL hair artist named Leanne! I have very long, thick hair that is often very ... Read more

  • When booking vendors for our wedding, it was incredibly important to my fiancé and I that we have connections with the people that were going to be involved on our special day. After my phone call with Kara, I knew I had found the perfect team for the wedding day. Our conversations were fun and so easy and an absolute blast on the wedding day. Both Kara and Leanne were fantastic through and through. They were incredibly patient with me and flexible especially when I had requested a hairstyle change 30 days out from the wedding. The artists/stylists at Best Face Forward are incredible and would highly recommend to any brides for their special day.

  • I used BFF for both my engagement photos and wedding weekend and am so happy with choosing BFF. As a natural, fair skinned, redhead I don't wear a lot of makeup. So, finding a makeup/hair artist was a little overwhelming since not everyone is comfortable/familiar with my fair complexion. Kara and her team did the most amazing job. I loved that they focused heavily on my complexion and skin health vs. caking tons of makeup on. For our engagement photos, Kara was so sweet and actually redid it when our shoot got rained out, talk about a team player! She did a great job playing up the colors of our background (Shenandoah during the Fall) and still keeping it fairly natural looking. On my wedding day, I felt so beautiful and very much like myself. Not only did Kara and the team do a great job with me, they were also really flexible about adding some of my bridesmaids who, on the day of, decided that they wanted help with their hair/makeup. I would 100% recommend Best Face Forw... Read more

  • I am so pleased with BFF!! Kara’s professionalism and prompt communication made them so easy to work with. They are exceptionally detail oriented, they LISTEN to what you want and best of all - they NAIL IT!! I had a large group of girls, 10 including myself, and with 4 artists they seamlessly got us all finished on time. We had Antonia, Alena, Marta, and Lindsey as our artists...they were all so kind and wonderful company to have. We had so much fun getting pampered, all my girls raved about it! Thank you, thank you, thank you BFF for making our wedding day perfect!

    Rachel- you are one of our golden stars no doubt!!! An absolutely wonderful bride, with a wonderful group of friends and family. We just can't thank you enough for entrusting us with your special day and more importantly being a friend and cheerleader!

  • I had a wonderful time with Susanne and Bri! They did a beautiful job with my makeup and hair respectively, and it looked fantastic in person and in photos! I highly recommend going for the hair & makeup trial. My trial look was beautiful, but it was even better on my actual wedding day.

    Isabel- you are a true beauty... we loved your look and being a part of your very special and intimate moment!! We appreciate you!!

  • I actually met Kara and her team at a wedding I was in years ago. They did my hair and makeup. I work in the wedding industry as a photographer so I am around a lot of hair and makeup artists. I also know I am horrible at sitting still. I have weird needs like not wanting my ears to show or and for my hair to frame my face some. Due to some health issues that have been ongoing we had to keep rescheduling the trial - Kara and her team were very understanding and patient! When the wedding day came they were amazing from when I was laid back to becoming in a panic because I wanted to stay on my timeline. They did such an amazing job. my makeup and hair looked great the entire day and night! Thank you for always being so wonderful

    Thanks so much Heather- you are so very special to us.. how funny to meet all those years ago and now we got to be a part of your most special day!!
