  • 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!

  • One of the things that I am most happy about was finding BFF on wedding wire. Kara is passionate about her work and was amazing to work with on my special day. I could not express enough how professional, easy, and stress-free it is to have BFF for hair/makeup. I loved how the trial was in my own home and that the incredible Larissa and Leeann came with masks and everything they used was sanitary and high quality. They are amazing people, made me feel comfortable, and appreciated any input I had. I am a shy person and they somehow made me feel like I have known them forever. I am most impressed with how knowledgeable they both are in hair/makeup. When it came to my actual wedding, the girls were punctual and made myself, my mom, and sister look/feel beautiful. I am so happy with the outcome, if you are doubting what to do for hair/makeup, give this company a try because you will not regret it.

    Thank you so much for your kindest of words!! The girls loved working with you and really collaborating on a fantastic look you all loved!

  • I received a call from my make up artist three days before my elopement wedding that she could not make it. I called several places but it was last minute and no one was available. Luckily, when I contacted Kara from Best Face Forward, she was profesional and wanted to help me out. Kara came to my rescue and made me feel like the prettiest bride. I’m so blessed I found her, she is not only kind and caring but very good at what she does. I highly recommend her!

  • I’m so glad I went with Best Face Forward for my wedding ceremony! (The have a ton of positive reviews for a reason!) Hair and makeup was the vendor I was most nervous about because I don’t usually wear much makeup. From my first conversation with Kara over the phone, I knew BFF was the right fit. Kara did my makeup and Leanne did my hair. They both were so professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We tried different looks at the trial and they gave helpful feedback about what would look the best on me and with my dress. The day of the ceremony I looked better than I ever imagined! I felt so beautiful and confident. My mom and sister also had their hair and makeup done and looked great! My husband and I postponed our wedding reception to next year because of COVID and I already have BFF booked. I can’t recommend BFF enough if you want to look and feel your best on your big day!

    We loved getting to put together such a unique look for a special bride!!! We absolutely can't wait for your big party next year!!!!

  • My husband and I chose to separate our marriage ceremony from our reception due to Covid, so I was searching for makeup and hair artists at the last minute. Kara, Leanne, and Larissa made sure that I felt comfortable about our wedding day plan during the virtual trial, and they really listened to all of my requests. On my wedding day, I felt absolutely gorgeous and confident, and the artists were so affirming! I could not have asked for better people to surround me on my wedding day!

    responded with the following comments.

    Oh Laura! I'm so glad we could make your day so special still! Everyone deserves that!! The girls LOVED being with you and your family was so wonderful when Leanne had her family emergency after finishing! We absolutely love meeting such fantastic families like yours! THANK YOU!!

  • I can’t recommend BFF enough to any bride looking for to hair and makeup. The flexibility of having so many hair and makeup artists to choose from, the helpfulness of Kara and the quality of the service are unmatched. I wanted a simple but elevated updo and makeup and Bri and Suzanne really listened and made me and my girls feel beautiful for the big day. Cannot recommend them enough! If I ever need hair and makeup again in the future, I know who I’ll be calling!

    Thanks so much Marina- you've been a fantastic client from the beginning and we loved being a part of your special day on a very special and popular date! ha!!

  • I am so beyond thrilled that we chose Best Face Forward for our hair and makeup for our postponed wedding reception. After businesses closed during the pandemic, I lost my original hair and makeup vendor, and my sister/MOH reached out to Kara at Best Face Forward with not much notice - maybe about a month. Kara was responsive and communicative, answered all of our many questions, and really took the stress out of the uncertainty of pandemic weddings. On the day of our postponed wedding reception, Kara and her team set a really positive and stress-free vibe in the bridal suite. Kara is the sweetest and is so easy to talk to, but I knew I was in good hands from the day we decided to work with her.

    As I've said to you before- you definitely are the GOLD standard for brides!! Easy-going, kind, and fun!! We loved getting to help you! It was our honor totally! Let's do it a 3rd time!!!! jk!!!

  • I loved working with BFF. From our first meeting, I was very assured that their practices are safe in this COVID-19 era and I felt comfortable both at the trial and the wedding that they were doing their best to keep all of us safe. After the trial I loved my looks, but couldn't put my finger on that little something that seemed to be missing. Without even mentioning it, Kara made a few minor suggestions for changes for my big day and she totally nailed exactly what I had been feeling I wished was different. On the day my make up looked great, photographed well, and didn't feel too heavy. They did a great job and I will definitely be booking them again for other life events. You can't go wrong with BFF!

    Girl- you are a true beauty and we are so thankful for your handy insight during this time of the virus! you are very appreciated and we can't wait for all those other life events to see you again!!!

  • From my hair and make-up trial (highly recommend) to my day of look. This team was wonderful to work with. They discussed the looks I was considering and we were able to finalize everything at my trial. They listened to my concerns of wanting to look natural and not over done, and also that I needed my hair to last the entire night. My bridal party was very happy with their professionalism and ability to match their hair and make-up with the pictures they brought. This team was a joy to work with and also helped us de-stress to enjoy the entire day. I would work with them again for any and all events!

    Courtney- you are the epitome of a laid back bride!! We loved working with you- your easy-going nature and trust in us, help us truly excel at our work! We appreciate you!!!

  • 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!

  • Seriously don't even know where to begin - BFF was one of - if not THE - best decision I made in wedding vendors. My mom and I cannot stop bragging about how amazing their team was on my wedding day. It’s so rare that a large group of people get their hair and makeup done for an event and EVERYONE loves it. I had 9 bridesmaids and they all keep telling me how beautiful they felt. They not only did an amazing job, but really stepped up to help us in areas that other vendors were lacking in. I mean, they were helping put florals up in 90-degree weather and were flexible enough to stay even later for touch-ups when our timeline got pushed - these ladies are rockstars!!! I really don’t know what I would’ve done without them.

  • I had a spectacular experience with BFF. I was a little late in finding a hair and makeup team before my wedding, and I was so nervous about who I would find. It was a blessing to find them!! They were so efficient in setting everything up and so knowledgeable about every possible question I had. My hairstyling and makeup as well as the hairstyling for my bridesmaids were beautiful AND durable for the whole wedding day. It was such a amazing experience, I am hiring them again for a future event!

    Helen you are fantastic!! We can't wait for next year for the big party then too!!! THANK YOU!! It's brides like you that keep us going!!

  • Best Face Forward saved the day when covid-19 altered my plans! They were flexible, very responsive, and best of all, friendly!! Markia did my hair and makeup at our place. She sanitized frequently and wore a mask. She was sweet, conversational, and gave me the look I envisioned. I highly recommend this company!!

  • The Best Face Forward team (Kara and Leanne) was THE #1 best decision I made for my wedding!!! -- Kara made my skin practically glow and made me look and feel beautiful. And Kara is an absolute PRO at matching foundation, concealer, etc. with Asian skintones. The makeup was natural looking and didn't look or feel like it was caked on. Leanne did an incredible job with my hair; it was exactly what I was hoping it would look like and my hair lasted all day. BFF also communicated and replied in a timely manner, and were flexible and worked with me as I rescheduled my wedding (which was postponed due to the pandemic). I would ABSOLUTELY hire them again!!!

    Holly- thank you so much for your kind words!! Your intimate day was so special and we're honored to have been a part!! I loved that you were so excited about your transformation! You're gorgeous inside and out!!
