Kathleen is AMAZING! I showed her a couple of pictures of the style of makeup and hair I wanted for my wedding. She went above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined! She truly made me feel and look like a princess for my special day!

I do not normally write reviews, however I needed to share how happy and satisfied I was with Kathleen's work on my wedding day. Kathleen is very professional and has a natural talent in her craft. My hair and make-up stayed put throughout my entire wedding day! She also has a wonderful personality and made me feel so comfortable on such a nervous day. She did such a fantastic job, that I asked her to do my hair and make-up for my brother's wedding, since I was a bridesmaid. I highly recommend Kathleen and you will NOT be disappointed!

Kathleen is such a joy to work with. She did an amazing job on hair and makeup for my three bridesmaids and me on my wedding day. I asked for an updo and natural-looking makeup based on pictures from Pinterest, and she delivered! My brides and me looked perfect! She also did my hair and makeup for my engagement photos. I could not believe that my makeup still looked flawless after taking engagement photos during the hot, Houston, summer heat. Thank you, Kathleen! I highly recommend her for hair and makeup for any special occasion.
