  • Simply put- Carla and her team were absolutely amazing and I was thrilled with her process and the results! My bridesmaids all looked beautiful and my hair and makeup were just what I had envisioned, but better. As a COVID bride, I had a lot of plans that had to change, and one of those was finding a new hair stylist and makeup artist shortly before our rescheduled wedding. I could not be happier that those plans had to change. From the first contact with Carla, she and her team were responsive, efficient, personable and incredibly easy to work with. I was not able to due a trial, but the morning of my wedding, Carla worked with me and my inspiration photos I had sent her and talked me through the look I was going for before we started. There were a lot of small things to stress about the day of the wedding, but thanks to Carla, hair and makeup certainly were not one of those things. Everything was run smoothly, and the end results were fantastic!

  • I can't recommend Carla enough - she is professional, warm, organized, timely, enthusiastic, and knows how to help you look like your best version of yourself. Carla did my hair and makeup for our small August 2020 wedding, and I can confirm that she takes extensive precautions to keep herself and her clients safe in this COVID-19 environment. She communicates those precautions and other expectations clearly upfront so everyone is prepared. I definitely recommend doing a makeup trial - it's worth the additional expense to go through ideas for hair and makeup, but more than that, I really enjoyed getting to know Carla and was so excited to see her again on my wedding day. Carla has an extremely warm and calming demeanor that really helps with any nerves. I look forward to working with her again when we throw a big reception in the future!

  • Where do I start?! From the first email communication, Carla was very professional and attentive. I needed my hair and make up done for an early engagement shoot and she came out to my house at 6am to work her magic. Carla did an amazing job of creating a safe environment for COVID - disinfected everything, had all tools and brushes in individual containers, and we both kept our masks on the entire time, except for when she did my make up. Conversation throughout the appointment was great - not too much and no awkward silences. She used my inspiration pictures to create a look that fit me and my features. Carla kept an eye on the time and continuously let me know how much time was left when we were coming down to the end. I would definitely recommend Carla to anyone for their hair and makeup needs!

    Thank you so much Melanie! It was amazing to work with you, even during Covid. So glad you enjoyed it as much as I did!

  • Carla was wonderful and provided such detailed, thoughtful service for my July 2020 wedding. The coronavirus pandemic certainly changed our wedding plans and Carla navigated every challenge including hair and make up that accommodated mask wearing during our ceremony and outdoor photos in 95+ degree heat and humidity. I received so many compliments on my hair and make up. As someone that does not wear a lot of make up regularly, I still felt like myself and looked photo ready for the big day. Since we did not do a consultation in advance (my choice), Carla arrived early enough to review a photo I had chosen as inspiration and she replicated it perfectly. I even let her cut my hair to finish the look and it was perfect (now considering booking her for a haircut because I enjoyed her so much!) If you are looking for a kind, thoughtful, charismatic individual whose presence, personality, and talents will make your day enjoyable, book Carla now!

    Aww Amanda!! I had a lot of fun working together and really love that YOU loved the look! Hope you and your partner are staying healthy!!

  • (Bride, married May 2021) Carla not only did a perfect job on my wild, curly nest of hair (while teaching me new ways to wear it!), she also made sure I was happy with everything, checked in with me multiple times, and did a trial with me. She did my makeup as well— her style is very fresh and timeless. I didn’t feel like I was wearing something that would look dated after a few years, at all.

    That's so kind of you to share Mimi! I'm so happy you loved the results and that I got to help you with your big day. Thank YOU and congratulations again!!

  • Carla had two of her artists do my hair and makeup for my wedding along with the hair/makeup of my mother in law, matron of honor and mother this Spring and WOW did they do a great job! They were also on time and kind. I really enjoyed working with Carla, Erin and her team for my wedding!

  • Carla and her assistant provided the hair and makeup services for myself and some family members for my wedding in April, and I could not have been happier! Getting my hair and makeup done professionally is typically an awkward/anxiety inducing process for me, but Carla made it so comfortable and fun! From the initial consultation, Carla took the time to listen carefully to what I wanted and review my reference photos. She then walked me through the whole consultation and made adjustments until I was 100% happy. On the day of the wedding, Carla was such a positive and calming presence. And I was so pleased with the outcome! It was by far the best my hair and makeup has ever looked. Everyone else was super pleased with their services as well. My mom and MIL still speak about how wonderful Carla is!

  • Carla was amazing! I ended up needing a somewhat last minute hair and makeup artist for my postponed microwedding and was so happy to have found Carla. She is very talented, but also is extremely friendly and a pleasure to be around. She came to my apartment for a trial and did such a wonderful job. She also followed COVID procedures and made me feel very safe. The day of the wedding, she did hair and makeup for me and two family members. She made us all look beautiful!! She even brought hair extensions that better matched my hair for the wedding after looking at the trial photos. I would highly recommend Carla and would work with her again in the future.

    Thank YOU Chelsea!! You are too sweet. So glad you enjoyed the process. Best wishes to you all and hope you all stay healthy!

  • One thing we did not consider in planning a virtual wedding was the need for hair and makeup so that we would look natural in front of all the cameras. Thankfully, Carla was available, responsive, and very easy to book at the last minute. We had a hard time locating makeup artists who did men’s makeup and we were thrilled to see Carla’s diverse portfolio. Carla a total pro: she was on time and very considerate of our safety, wearing an N95 mask during our entire session. Carla gave us the full spa experience at home, getting our faces wonderfully moisturized, trimming our hair into a clean look, and enhancing our facial features that normally would go unnoticed, like our eyebrows. Because we would be wearing facemasks for much of the day, Carla also made sure to give us extra makeup and instructions so we could touch ourselves up before the ceremony. The result was great. We looked radiant at our wedding, with our hair and makeup looking completely natural. It was a real pleasure w... Read more

  • Carla did my elopement hair and makeup, and she was nothing short of incredible. Professional, personable, and so, so talented. I hadn't done any trials, as we came to DC from out of town. I showed her pics of styles that I liked, and she maybe glanced at them five times. I was amazed by how seamlessly she made my vision come to life. Worth her weight in gold!

    Thank you so much Lindsay! You are too sweet. I absolutely loved how the look came out and am so glad you did too!

  • Carla did an incredible job on my daughter’s and my hair and make up for my wedding. I am a 46 year old woman who wanted to look like a queen for my wedding. I like to go big and bold. I wanted a glamorous look to go with my black wedding dress and Carla delivered. I was amazed that at the end of the night my make up looked just as fresh as the moment she finished applying it. She was professional, clean, and fun. She made the process of getting ready one of the highlights of our day! She went above and beyond to follow CDC guidelines and ensured everyone’s safety. Hiring Carla was the best decision that I made! Highly recommended!

    Yes Diana!! You and your daughter both looked AMAZING. I had such a blast with you and I'm so happy you loved the looks!

  • Carla is so sweet, and is an incredible hair and makeup artist! She came and did hair and makeup for our micro-wedding. Carla and her assistants were great listeners and catered to each person's wants (which were all over the board)—everyone got exactly what they wanted! I was also so grateful that she had clear COVID precautions in place. Though everyone in our party had tested negative beforehand, it felt really good to know that she was dedicated to being careful and sanitary. Hire Carla! You won't regret it!

    You are so so sweet Shea!! You all looked so radiant! So glad you enjoyed everything as much as I did!

  • Carla did an amazing job on mine and my bridesmaids hair for my wedding. She sent out a draft schedule ahead of time to give us an idea of timeframes and started and ended on schedule. The entire day she kept the mood light and didn't make any of us feel rushed. She also just took everyone's inspiration pictures and everyone's hair turned out beautiful.

  • Carla and her team were wonderful! Communication leading up to our wedding was easy and clear. On the wedding day, Carla and her team were professional, well organized, prepared, and efficient while still being fun and pleasant to spend the morning with. I really highly recommend Carla for your wedding day. You won't have to worry about a thing (for your hair and make up at least!) She has got it all figured out!
