Amazing service!!! posted 3/28/2014 (modified 3/29/2014)

KLM Artistry was simply amazing. Kim helped with everything and made sure that I looked amazing in every picture I took she even made sure my groom looked amazing and was perfect. Kim paid close attention to every single detail if my necklace was crooked she fixed it. I purchased the bridal package and it was worth every penny and so much more I don't know what I would have don't without Kim.

AH-MAZING! posted 4/19/2014 (modified 4/20/2014)

I found out about KLM Artistry through another bride who recommended that I use Kim for my wedding day hair and makeup! I had inquired about and spoke to several other hair/makeup artist in the area and found that KLM Artistry's pricing was very reasonable. Kim was also very responsive which is a huge plus in my books!

I will be forever grateful of that recommendation because Kim was beyond amazing. When I went for my hair and makeup consultation, I knew I had made the right choice. Kim was extremely welcoming and personable and very attentive to my hair/makeup requests. She asked lots of questions to ensure I got exactly what I wanted. I could tell right off the bat that she truly cared about my ideas, suggestions and thoughts. She is very passionate about what she does and is a perfectionist (in a good way)! After my hair trial, Kim offered to re-do my hair to a more casual style because I was heading straight to a friend's birthday party. I took her up on her offer and she took down the beautiful hair style she had just spent an hour creating, re-curled my hair and put it in a cute pony tail. It was a very kind gesture and solidified my decision to go with KLM Artistry.

Kim did not let me down on the day of my wedding. There were 9 of us getting our hair and makeup done (bride, mother of bride, and 7 bridesmaids) so she had a 2nd hair/makeup artist help out. My wedding started at 2 pm so it was an early morning. Kim and Jessie showed up on time (6 am) and set everything up ahead of schedule. One bridesmaid that was schedule with Jessie wanted a waterfall braid, however, Kim is the master of braids. Kim and Jessie were able to rearrange the schedule without missing a beat or getting behind on time. I originally wanted a low side bun but the day off, Kim suggested doing the same bun but in the back. I trusted Kim's opinion and did the low bun in the back. I absolutely LOVED it and thought it looked much better than when the bun was on the side. And the airbrush makeup... WOW! All I can say is that I have never felt more beautiful in my life. My mom and bridesmaids also all looked stunning! Kim was by my side for my solo photos making sure that my front loose curl was laying beautifully against my face, that my necklace wasn't crooked, that my veil was placed perfectly, that my lip color never faded...She basically made me look flawless for photos that I will cherish forever.

There are no words to describe my appreciation for everything Kim and Jessie did. They played a big part in making my special day perfect. KLM Artistry was beyond amazing and exceeded all of my expectations. Working with Kim and Jessie was a great experience and if I could re-live the morning of my wedding, I would not change a thing!

Wonderful! posted 10/21/2014

I found out about KLM Artistry after searching multiple wedding websites. All of them had great reviews and recommended Kim for my wedding day hair and makeup! I had looked into a few other hair/makeup artist in the area and found that Kim was very responsive, which was really important. I didn't want to be stressing about finding a hair/make up artist or wondering about their reliability. Plus, KLM Artistry's pricing was very reasonable.

I am very happy I found Kim because she is beyond amazing. When I went for my hair and makeup consultation, I knew I had made the right choice. Kim was extremely welcoming and personable and very attentive to my hair/makeup requests. She asked lots of questions to to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. My experience with the consultation and her responsiveness to my emails made me sure of my decision to go with KLM Artistry!

Best Experience of My Life posted 10/20/2014

I got married just over two weeks ago and just thinking about the day still brings tears of happiness to my eyes. Kim was a big part of that. I knew the day I met her for my consultation that I wanted to book her services. She was so caring, warm, and kind. She had amazing attention to detail that I never would have expected. Even after I thought she was done, she would take a step back, and tell me that there was a curl (just one) not doing what she wanted and then fixed it. There is only so much of your hairstyle you see, but I fully trusted that Kim was going to do an amazing job on my big day to ensure that every hair was in it's place. Kim's standards are incredibly high in regards to what she gives her clients. I feel truly blessed that I found her flyer in the pile I received at the Bridal Show.

Kim was also very flexible with me. Two days before the wedding, my mom decided she would rather do her own hair instead of having Kim do. I emailed her to let her know so she didn't have to get up so early in the morning, but also to ensure her that I would still be paying for that service since I was canceling with such late notice. Kim sent me a new invoice and timeline for the day of without my mom's service on it. No charge for the cancellation.

The day of the wedding, Kim came to our hotel room to get us all ready. There was only myself, two bridesmaids, and a flower girl. She was so calming and reassuring. She was as excited about the day as I was! She encouraged me to cry and not to worry about the makeup. It felt as though she was a part of the wedding party.

After we were ready to go, she met us at Stonebridge Manor for the ceremony and reception. She arrived before us and had everything already set up in the bridal suite for touch ups before I even stepped in the room. She was quick to do finishing touches on all of our hair and make up. Up to this point, everything that Kim had done was what I expected. When we started with the pictures is when I was really amazed.

I mentioned to Kim that I knew I would cry when I saw my groom during the first look. We had chosen to share traditional vows in front of our guests and personally written vows privately during our first look. Kim told me not to worry and even showed me how to hide a tissue in my bouquet.

Kim was there all through pictures, holding my bouquet when needed, fixing my makeup and hair when needed, fixing my dress when needed, holding a drink and food for me, etc. I was simply amazed by the experience! I never expected anywhere near the level of service I got from Kim. I do not think I have enough words to describe how grateful I was/am for all she did that day.

I have received many compliments about Kim from other members of my family and bridal party. Everyone was blown away. I plan on using her services every time we have family photos, Christmas card photos, etc.

Thank you, Kim!

KLM Artistry is Wonderful! posted 10/10/2014 (modified 10/10/2014)

I had the pleasure of working with Kim from KLM Artistry for my hair and makeup trial/engagement pictures. She was very accommodating for my schedule, and she did an amazing job! She took her time to get my hair and makeup exactly the way I wanted it for the wedding trial. Then, she took her time to make my hair look amazing for the engagement photo session. I just LOVE how my hair and makeup look in my photographs! I would definitely trust her for your big day!

I could not be more pleased with the professionalism and efficiency that KLM provided. When there seemed to be curves thrown into the scheduling and extra people needing help these were dealt with in a smooth and stress less manner. All of the bridesmaids hair looked beautiful and makeup flawless. The bride looked absolutely beautiful! What amazed me was the many difficult challenges of thick hair to frizzy and extremely pale skin to very dark tones. Every bridesmaid looked great! I don't know if this is even part of KLM service, but her suggestions for pictures was great. We did not use a professional photographer so her advice for special pictures is something I am very grateful for. Our experience was very positive and was so happy to have used KLM.

I had some initial difficulty finding a makeup artist. Some were too expensive or didn't want to work around my wedding being that it was an early morning ceremony; but Kim was AMAZING! She was flexible with being available early, charged me a decent amount for her make up services, allowed me to come to her home for a reasonable $25.00 consultation, had a great personality, and really did an awesome job on my wedding day! She's someone that I was so happy to have at my wedding!

An A+ Job posted 9/11/2014

Kim was such a pleasure to work with, both in the planning process and for the day of the wedding. I shared pictures of what I was thinking for myself and for my bridesmaids, and Kim helped me narrow down looks and gave me a timeline for the day so I could know what to expect.

When it came to the actual wedding day, Kim was wonderful to work with. She was both flexible and pleasant when we needed to switch the order of my bridesmaids getting ready for various reasons, and the girls all looked gorgeous! We had a variety of skin types and hair types to deal with and Kim did a top notch job with every one of them.

Not only was her makeup job flawless (Not a hint of my usual dark circles!) but it stayed pristine through outdoor photos in what was an unusually hot August. In fact, if my Groom hadn't been so enthusiastic with the kiss all of the makeup would have stayed until I took it off myself at the end of the evening! (Though Kim was quick to find me in a quiet moment with the lipstick to return it to it's former glory)

TL;DR: Kim is a wonderful vendor and I highly recommend that you consider her for both hair and makeup for your wedding. She is skilled, professional, and has a wonderfully upbeat personality well suited for taking care of a bride on her special day.

Best choice! posted 9/11/2014

I was referred to KLM Artistry by my best friend, whose sister's wedding took place last year. She said Kim was great, and she was right! She was really friendly and listened to what I needed, asked me about the look I was trying to create and did a full trial session beforehand, with no pressure to use her services on the wedding day. I felt absolutely beautiful and my wedding pictures turned out great! My photographer didn't have to do much touching up on the photos. I would recommend KLM Artistry in a heartbeat. I went for the "perfect airbrush" look and I'm really glad that I did. Hair stayed in place all day and even though my wedding was in 114 F weather, hair and make up stayed in place until the reception was over. :)

KLM Artistry / Kim posted 8/4/2014

Kim did a great job with my wedding hair and makeup. She's easy to work with, friendly, and has good attention to detail. When my dress bustle broke, she took the initiative to fix it herself with some extra safety pins she had. My hair and makeup held up really well for the whole night, and I really "tested" it with nonstop dancing at the reception!
Thanks Kim!

AMAZING service and hair/makeup posted 12/12/2013 (modified 12/13/2013)

I would give Kim 6 stars if I could. I signed up for her Elite package and she went far and beyond just hair and makeup in helping with our wedding day. Not only did myself and my bridesmaids looked amazing but she fixed a groomsman jacket when his button fell off during pictures, she ran down the wine for our ceremony that my bridesmaid forgot, etc. People kept referring to her as the photographers assistant because she was so instrumental in making things go smooth on our wedding day. She was very receptive to making changes so that everyone was 100% satisfied.

Best MakeUp Artist posted 9/3/2013

If you are looking for someone to do your make up..shop no more! Kim is by far the most personable, calming individual I have met. She will make you laugh, and feel at ease on your special day. Be warned she is a perfectionist......and on your wedding day....I don't think you would want anything less.

Thank you Kim....keep smiling and making brides feel like a million on their special day!

I used KLM for my wedding two years ago and had such a wonderful experience!! Kim is so friendly and professional, but most importantly- skilled!! She just does such a wonderful job of making you look truly beautiful and highlighting your best features while still meeting your expectations. I love a more natural look, and she was able to make me look glamorous without looking like I had tons of makeup to make it happen! The tools she uses are incredible and she even gave me princess service by following me around on my wedding day during pictures and before the ceremony to freshen me up and make me look just beautiful and perfect! She was such a life saver! So now, as my brother in law was getting married, I highly recommended her to my future sister in law, and yet again, KLM came through exceeding everyone's expectations with her brilliant skills, top notch products, and exceptional attention to detail. Everyone loved how great of a job she did, and my now sister in law looked absolutely beautiful on her wedding day!! If you are looking to have your makeup done for your wedding (or someone else's wedding) stop your search right now!! You just stumbled upon the BEST there is!!

Kim is MUST HAVE for every bride. Her talent and attention to detail are amazing. She is flexible and fun to work with. Kim will stay with you during photo session and not just touch up your makeup but she will run around and help in every possible way. She made me and my daughter absolutely gorgeous. Kim is the best investment for your wedding.

I found KLM Artistry through searching on TheKnot and after browsing the website, I knew hands down that I wanted Kim as my hair and make up artist for my wedding. Even though my wedding was in May 2013, I set up my hair and make up trial at the beginning of August to confirm that I wanted to book Kim. As soon as I met her, and especially after my hair and make up trial, I booked her that day. I've never felt so beautiful in my life and I got so many compliments that day that I knew I had found the perfect artist. I also used Kim for my hair and make up artist for my husband and I's engagment session. Kim was excellent with communication and was able to come up with a great day of schedule, especially considering how many girls we had (8 girls; all with make up, 6 with hair). We had so many people that Kim had to bring in another artist she works with frequently (Jessie) to help get all of us done. Both women were amazing and listened to exactly what we wanted and helped to make sure we all looked and felt beautiful. Kim had also done this with me at my hair and make up trial and at the engagement session which was really helpful because I knew what I wanted done with my hair but had no clue about make up. One of the things I also loved was that included in the package is that Kim stayed to touch up hair and make up throughout the pictures as well as after the ceremony before we went into the reception. She was also present during the pictures to help make sure everything was laying correctly (i.e. jewelry) and to help keep hair and make up in perfect condition. I've never felt like more of a celebrity! She was also awesome in helping us switch everything to another bridal ready room when the a/c broke in the room we were in and we all started sweating to death (Arizona in May; it was hotter in the room than it was outside). I could not have asked for a better hair and make up artist, especially for the price ($782.50 for all 8 girls, 2 artists, large tattoo cover up, and all day service from 9:30 AM - 7:00 PM).

Hands down - best in town!! posted 5/26/2013

I had gone thru three different trial runs with three different artists before making an appointment with Kim. I was beginning to get discouraged because I just wasn’t feeling confidant in the results – they weren’t really capturing what I wanted. When I sat down with Kim and explained what I was after as I had with the three other artists she was excited to get started. Our conversation flowed – she is just so personable and I immediately knew she would fit in with my bridesmaids the day of the wedding. Her packages and pricing are very reasonable – especially considering she gives 120% to any project. She is a perfectionist but manages her time and is aware of how critically important it is staying on schedule on such a big day. The day of the wedding she arrived early and began setting up with her assistant. They did such an amazing job on each of the bridesmaids, my sister-in-law, mother of the groom and myself – we all looked flawless. She then travelled with us to the location and she was just so amazing – putting the final touches on everyone, helping in any way possible. Even my wedding coordinator and photographer commented on how attentive Kim was. She went above and beyond to ensure we all looked our best for the pictures after the ceremony. A women’s wedding day is one of the most important days and the artist is in charge with such a big task. I had heard of so many stories of friends not liking their hair and makeup and what a disaster the experience was –but I was so fortunate to have found Kim. She is so talented and friendly and understands to listen to her client and give them what they want but to put in her own style that compliments the look. She is worth every penny. I will absolutely use her again when I have an event or even for a date night with my husband. Kim, thank you for being so amazing!!! You absolutely were one of my favorite people throughout my wedding experience.

Above and Beyond! posted 5/7/2013

Kim went truly above and beyond for my wedding day. I contacted her practically at the last minute after coming across her vendor listing on theknot.com and from her first email I felt at ease. Her packages were very affordable and she did a fantastic job. She did the make up for myself plus four bridesmaids as well as styled my hair and the flower girl's. I'm not a girl who wears make up every day (more like once a week) but she did an amazing job interpreting what I wanted - classic, special and beautiful - in such a tasteful manner.
Throughout our correspondence and the entire day before the wedding she was so professional and kind. She insisted on coming to the venue to do last minute touch ups and offered to do the flower girl's hair even though it wasn't part of the package I chose. Kim enlisted the help of a hair stylist named Hillary who did all of the bridesmaids' hair styles and she also was incredibly sweet and talented. There was absolutely nothing that Kim could've done better. She was easily the best vendor I had for the entire wedding and I HIGHLY recommend her!
