  • Best Face Forward did an amazing job for my 10/14/18 wedding. Susanne and Bri were very attentive to myself and my girls and were pleasant to be around. Susanne even stayed a bit extra to help touch up my makeup after I cried during my first look. She was not upset and did not seem rushed to get out of there. Susanne even did my hair and makeup from my engagement photos which also turned out great. Would recommend them to any future bride! Was especially nice that they travel to you since my wedding was on a Sunday.

  • The BFF team was absolutely amazing to work with for our wedding day! Our wedding weekend had some remnants of Hurricane Michael which knocked out power at the original house we were getting ready at. They were quick to respond to a change in plans late night before a 4:30AM wakeup on our wedding day - Everyone showed up on time to the new location and made the getting ready process so much fun. I would absolutely recommend working with BFF to others for their wedding or other events where they need professional hair and makeup services.

  • I had Kara and Leanne for my wedding and they were amazing. My makeup was a natural look but Kara made it so that it still highlighted my features perfectly. Leanne did my hair in a high bun and added more volume than I thought was possible. Both my hair and makeup stayed perfect all night, makeup didn't smudge at all and my bun stayed right in place. Both of them were so easy to work with. I sent them some inspiration pictures and they worked their magic from there. They helped to make my wedding day relaxing and I didn't have to stress over me or any of my girls being ready and looking great. They helped me feel and look like a princess for my wedding!

    Kayleen- you are a true gem! The sweetest inside and out. And what a fantastic example of a bride who I can truly tell values her relationship and shows kindness to everyone. Thank you so much for choosing us!!!

  • I needed a stylist last minute for my wedding and I could NOT be happier!! They did such an amazing job, from our first contact with each other to my stylist coming to the venue right on time and making my hair look beautiful for my big day, I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you so much to one of the most professional and organized vendors of all time! You ladies rock!

  • You will not be disappointed going with Best Face Forward and Kara's team! I had contacted a zillion on site hair and makeup teams for my wedding last October, and it seemed that NONE of them had availability despite having so many artists. I finally came upon Best Face Forward and from the start knew I had made the right choice. Kara was incredibly responsive, professional and made me feel like I was her only client in her thoughtful responses to all of my questions (including the quite a few I had about the contract - yes, I actually read it before I signed it - as should everyone). Markia (make-up) and Mandy (hair) ended up working with me and our wedding party on the big day and they were fantastic. Mandy even accommodated a last minute change I wanted done on my hair at the last minute without hesitation and she did it perfectly despite it not being what we had done at my trial at all. Let me also say this, as a working (new) mother myself, I have no idea how Kara does it... Read more

  • Choosing Best Face Forward for hair services was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day! Kara was very detailed and thorough with what her team offered and what to expect in the experience. She was available to chat on the phone around my work times, and was always awesome in e-mail communication, which I really appreciated! Brianne was our STELLAR hair stylist and she made my vision come to life, both at the hair trial and again on the big day. I was in AWE when she first did my hair, it was exactly what I envisioned! She's so personable and easy-going, and I appreciated how she made sure the rest of my bridal party was in sync to the style I wanted. What I really loved about BFF is that they really listened and studied my ideas to make it the dream-come-true wedding and the best experience I could have asked for. Thank you Kara and Brianne!

  • First, let me start with, Best Face Forward does hair AND makeup. Whoot whoot!!! That was one of the first things I was looking for. I didn't want to have one vendor doing my hair and then someone else doing my make up. Then meeting Kara was so wonderful. She is personable and attentive to what you want. Kara and her team (shout out Leanne!) really did put their skills to work making me look the way I wanted to on my big day. My makeup stayed on all night (I woke up looking flawless) and my hair stayed put without looking crunchy or stiff. What I loved most was that my skin looked so smooth and my makeup did not feel heavy or caked on. In fact, I truly felt like my skin was bare and could breathe (love that feeling!!). Kara was easy to get in contact with and she definitely made me feel like I could approach her with any concerns regarding my look. THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I loved my look and so did my husband.

  • Kara was so easy to coordinate with. I was on a short timeline and she worked me into her schedule making sure she answered all my questions (even while she was on vacation!). The trial was easy to schedule and went great - though both Kara and Antonia were so professional and skilled, we barely made any changes because they really got it right the first time! The day of the wedding, they showed up on time and got right to work making all my ladies feel beautiful. On top of that they were a blast to spend the morning with and kept the environment relaxed and fun. Thank you both so much!

  • A friend connected me with Kara and her team at BFF and they made my wedding planning so much easier! From the very beginning, Kara was extremely direct and detail oriented which I appreciated! I felt so comfortable choosing to work with BFF - they even recommended skin care for me and connected me with a spray tan artist who was also amazing! Leading up to our wedding, I had my trial with Kara and Tria. They were so warm and friendly and made me feel 100% confident working with them. The day of the wedding, they were so easy to work with and made me feel beautiful, but still like myself. I'm not a big make-up person, but I felt natural and beautiful all at the same time, and that's exactly what I was hoping for. I had 8 bridesmaids, my mom, my stepmom, and my grandmother, so it was definitely a full house! Kara and her team worked with each of them in such an efficient way and they all looked beautiful! I would highly recommend Kara and her team - they are there to listen and help ex... Read more

  • The team was amazing! I had a few tweaks from the trial so you are always nervous about it, but I loved loved the final outcome!! Everything was perfect, I wouldn't have changed a single thing! I loved how my hair looked and it stayed all night! The makeup was perfect, it stayed on as you predicted even with the massive storm that came through. My sister passed out on Saturday night with her hair fully in tact and makeup on, and when she came down for brunch on Sunday, you would have thought she just got her makeup and hair done! Everything was perfect and they helped make our wedding day so spectacular!!

  • Susanne did my make up for my engagement photos, and I was definitely nervous not being someone who likes to wear a lot of make up--but she did SUCH a great job of making me feel comfortable, and I ended up LOVING my make up not only in person, but it turned out perfectly in the pictures (just like she told me it would!) She was very flexible about including what I wanted--but is also very talented at what she does, so had a very well informed opinion as well when I was not certain about something! She even came to me, in a not very convenient location, to do my make up! Thanks Susanne :)

  • Highly recommend Best Face Forward to any bride, groom, or wedding party looking to elevate their look for the big day. Kara is the best business owner and is very responsive, answers any and all questions, and is highly skilled at her profession. She will put you at ease about the entire process from start to finish and has built a team of very qualified people to make your wedding day vision the ultimate success. Leanne did my hair and she, too, was so sweet and did an amazing job at executing the vision I had for the updo I had chosen. Truly can't sing their praises enough and consider both artists my friends from here on out!!! If you're on the fence no need to look further - Best Face Forward is the winner!

  • Kara is GREAT! I had reached out to Best Face Forward after 2 trials with another vendor that were unsuccessful. Kara made me feel comfortable and was easy to communicate with. She was always very prompt in her responses and really listened to my concerns, questions and ideas. We had 9 people getting hair and makeup done and our entire team was warm and talented! We had Kara and Larissa doing makeup and Leanne and Lindsay doing hair. They were great!! Highly recommend!

  • Kara and her team did a great job in providing hair and makeup for our wedding party. It was easy to communicate with Kara prior to the wedding to coordinate services and scheduling. The amount of paperwork initially can be overwhelming, but it is relevant and important to make sure you are getting the best service out there. Since we had such a large wedding party, Kara was able to organize additional artists to help with hair and makeup to make sure everyone was ready on time. It was a bit pricey in the end given the need for extra artists and early start time but Kara was very understandable and willing to work with the price, which I highly appreciated! I also want to thank Markia for such a wonderful job -- she was so flexible and willing to work around the chaos during our wedding day, which I cannot thank her enough. Would definitely recommend BFF to family and friends!
