Ky is awesome and super nice! My wedding is in March 2016 and I can't wait for Ky to style my hair and my wedding party for my big day. I recently had my trial and I LOVED my hair and it was just a rough run. LOL! Ky listens to you and really goes out of her way to make sure she understands the look for your wedding day. She is patient and tries several looks and tweaks as necessary until she gets the perfect style. She also makes fabulous hair accessories. If I hadn't already booked a MUA for sure I would have booked Ky to do my makeup as well.

I was committed to finding a makeup artist consistent with my values in using toxic-free ingredients and I am so grateful to have connected with Ky through our mutual work with Beautycounter (safer products made beautiful). I have so much gratitude for Ky. She is one of the most generous and giving people I have met and when I was searching for a 100% "clean beauty" makeup artist and hair stylist for my wedding ceremony and reception event in July, I felt such PEACE when I spoke to Ky and connected with her about my "goddess" vision and making it a reality. We did an in-depth consultation and as the big day neared, we discussed and kept in contact with subtle nuances and ideas. I am so happy with the results and I feel her skill, makeup/hair artistry, and work ethic matched everything I could have dreamed.

Working with Ky was such a dream come true. She immediately understood the beautiful glowing, natural bridal look I was going for. I wanted to look like myself yet enhanced, and she designed a flawless makeup look and incredibly unique hairstyle for me in the 1st try at the makeup + hair trial. I have taken so many steps to be conscious about what I eat and what I put on my skin that I didn't want to have to make any compromises for my wedding day makeup. I was so thrilled to discover that Ky is the queen of natural makeup. She is an expert in sourcing non-toxic makeup and applying it in a way that photographs beautifully and lasts all day & night (even in the heat of our Memorial Day 2017 ceremony). The makeup felt weightless, like I was just my own skin. The products Ky used & her method of application allowed for my skin to be visible and breathe while also giving great coverage where I needed it, without being obvious. I felt so beautiful & radiant. I loved the look so much that I returned for a makeup lesson so that I could do the look myself for future events. Ky is a great teacher and has some amazing tricks for how to enhance your eyes and layering your makeup to last. On the wedding day Ky was on time & efficient. She did my hair and makeup, as well as the hair for my maid of honor and it was so great to start the day with Ky's calming touch and fun company as we were getting ready. I am so grateful to have found Ky, and hands down would recommend her to any bride.

I'm very glad I had Ky do the makeup for my wedding! I scheduled a trial a few months prior and she asked many questions and tried a few looks, recording and mapping my selections as we went. I was originally concerned about my ivory skin that can look orange with too much bronzer. However, I had nothing to worry about! She listened to my concerns and everything looked AMAZING. I love the final vintage look that we went with and everything was perfect for the big day. She also did the makeup for my mom and mother in law, the whole time sticking closely to the schedule but making sure everyone looked fantastic!! Everyone only has positive things to say!

Ky was amazing! I was lucky enough to be paired up with her through Bridal Artistry and from the trial, I was excited to have her do my makeup on my wedding day. She paid real attention to what was best for my skintone, handling my summer sunburnt skin during my trial like a pro, and really made my look come together. She gave me tips for taking care of my skin and taught me things about makeup as we worked out what I wanted together. Even 8 months later, I am so thankful for Ky and how beautiful she made me feel on my big day. My makeup on my wedding day was perfect, and I would not hesitate to recommend her. She even did it on her own anniversary! Thank you, Ky.

Ky takes the time to find a hairstyle that works for you. She did the hair and makeup of my daughter for her wedding as well as the bridal party's hair. My daughter looked absolutely stunning--her hair and makeup were flawless. Everyone in the bridal party loved their hair. Add to this, Ky has such a pleasant personality. I highly recommend Ky to anyone who wants to look spectacular on their special day.

Ky was wonderful to work with. I honestly did not know what I wanted for my hair and make up. At my trial she asked questions, listened as I tried to answer, made suggestions and helped me choose what ended up being the final make up and hair style. This included needing longer hair, so I worked with her colleague to make extensions. The overall experience was fun and the end result was amazing. I have never felt so good and looked so beautiful. I was so happy to have the opportunity to work with Ky. Thank you for being patient, attentive and fun.

Ky did an amazing job creating beautiful hairstyles for myself and my bridesmaids. It was a joy to have Ky bring our visions to light, and I could not have asked for better service on our wedding day. Thank you SO much!

Ky did hairstyles for me and my 4 bridesmaids on the day of the wedding and she did an amazing job! Ky was great to work with from start to finish. We went to her studio in Springfield for my hair and makeup trial and we tested out a few different hair styles - two of bridesmaids came along and Ky was very accommodating to our constant chatter :) Ky was able to look at the photos on my pinterest and help me visualize what I wanted for my wedding day and then she took photos of each hair style from every side so I could remember what they looked like. I ended taking a piece of hairstyle A and a piece of hairstyle B and I was really happy with how it turned out. My hair stayed together the whole night, was comfortable, and looked great in pictures. Each of my bridesmaids' hairstyles also looked amazing. Ky was laid back and easy to work with throughout, she was fun to chat with as we got ready in the hotel suite and I would highly recommend her to anyone getting married in the DMV area. Want proof? We had some "mishaps" on our wedding day and got stuck in an elevator before the ceremony with the entire wedding party! Did my hair get frizzy or fall out of its style - NOPE.
