Katie was so wonderful to work with! She was incredibly attentive and easy to talk to when figuring out the best styles for my mom and I.  I could tell immediately that she was an expert at bridal hair and felt incredibly at ease in her hands.  Alana is so easy to talk to and as someone who isn't used to wearing much makeup, she really listened to any concerns I had and was incredibly flexible and adaptive. She created a final look that was glammed up but also felt like me, and by some magic it lasted through the after after party! She also kept the wedding morning stress free by not only creating a seamless schedule but leaving plenty of time for touch ups ensuring everyone looked and felt their best! Katie worked with every girl to make sure they were happy and comfortable with their hairstyles and everyone was absolutely thrilled with the end results - she did a stunning job! Our hairstyles lasted through the night until the after-after party ended at 3am which was beyond our expectations.Together they make the perfect hair and makeup team and I'd recommend them in a heartbeat! - Jen V.

I felt so lucky to have such a killer team. Katie is exactly the type of person you want around on your wedding day—she's super professional at the same time chill and just fun to hang out with. You can tell you're in good hands with her. I absolutely LOVE the look she created for me. She also did a range of styles for my bridesmaids—up, down, textured, sleek, short, and long. Everyone looked GORGEOUS and our styles lasted all day and night (even through serious dancing). Alana did makeup for me and my bridesmaids, and I can't recommend her enough. She helped me achieve a natural look that made me feel like the most beautiful version of myself. She also adapted to all of my bridesmaids' requests—there was a range of styles and levels of glam—and everyone looked gorgeous! Perhaps the most impressive part of it all was that everyone's makeup lasted beautifully over the course of my mid-July outdoor wedding. And I have to emphasize that Alana is the loveliest, sweetest, most relaxed person—exactly the vibe you want on the morning of your wedding to help ease any potential anxiety. All I can say is THANK YOU Katie + Alana for making me feel so gorgeous on my wedding day. - Bethany M.

Alana & Katie were my "getting pretty" team for my wedding and oh my goodness I could not have chosen a better team. Alana is *so* incredible. I don't usually wear much makeup, but she nailed the "soft glam" look she prides herself on - I looked like me, only much prettier. She even kept my freckles visible! (They are an integral part of my face!). She also managed to calm down the very stressed mums and make them feel gorgeous, and made my team of bridespeople feel confident and beautiful. Katie managed to perfectly create what I was hoping for (and it held beautifully all night); and all of my girls and mums and flower girls felt the same. She's a hair genius! If you want to feel prettier than you have ever felt, hire them for your wedding. You absolutely won't regret it.  - Clare B.
