  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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. Plus, if you've ever gone out and not loved your hair or makeup, you know that not loving your look can have you not feeling your best. I was so happy to find Kara, who felt like a friend from our very first phone call. She helped me find a look that still looked like me, but a little more glammed up without my face feeling cakey or uncomfortable. I loved my wedding hair and make up -- my hair stayed put all night and I have videos from 1am on my wedding night where my make up still looks flawless. My bridal party looked absolutely gorgeous and my mother was really happy with her look too. Kara and Leanne were both just fun to hang out with while we were getting ready too! 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, ... Read more

  • 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 as we were getting ready, and were lovely to work with. 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. Everyone was thrilled with their product! Kara was also wonderful to work with leading up to the event. She was responsive, and helpful in guiding me in some decisions about my hair and makeup. Would absolutely recommend them!

  • I am so so glad that I hired Best Face Forward for my big day. I was very skeptical about hiring hair/makeup artists, particularly makeup. I know some people want to be completely dolled up on their wedding day, but I really wanted to look like myself and when I had my original consultation with Kara I really felt that she understood that. Kara was constantly in communication with me from the beginning and was super responsive when I thought of little questions or concerns I had regarding timing, look details, etc. A few weeks before my wedding her team tragically lost an artist, and even through that difficult time, Kara kept me updated regarding scheduling my trial and the final timeline for my wedding. it was really remarkable. On top of that, the week before my wedding I received the timeline and saw that for my 8 bridesmaids plus my mom, we wold have to start hair and makeup at 7:30 am - which was too early for my liking. Kara quickly confirmed another artist for a very reasonable... Read more

  • 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. Mandy did my hair along with two girls in my bridal party. She was able to give us elegant updos that weren’t quite identical but cohesive. My sister felt beautiful after having her makeup done by Susanne and I felt pampered and like a bride after Susanne’s final touches. Kara and her team literally saved my day from stress and uncertainty and I can’t thank them enough. 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. So gratef... Read more
