Karen and Dani and the rest of the team was absolutely excellent! Not only did they do a fabulous job on the hair and makeup, but most importantly, their personalities were awesome, a must have to ease your stress on the day of. I would unconditionally recommend their work any time you need any hair or makeup done!
Karen was amazing, my make up looked great and lasted through my whole wedding! I looked like the most beautiful version of myself! Thank you!
Karen Hall and Co did a great job with me and my entire bridal party. She helped calm my nerves and made me feel simply beautiful. Dani is amazing and is the most talented hair stylists I have ever come across- plus she is so sweet! My only issue was having to pay ahead of time, which was a lot of money for an entire bridal party and I was very skeptical of this. However, in retrospect, I am glad we did it that way so we did not have to worry about payment the day of the wedding. Karen is very busy and for a type A personality like me, it made me nervous; however , she was professional and organized and everything went great! Plus, you know she is good if she is that busy :) Her ability to make your eyes pop is unbelievable! I have seen a few of our photos already and the makeup photographed SO well!!! Our hair and makeup lasted all night. My groom said he had never seen someone so beautiful in his entire life, and that Karen Hall gets a lot of that credit! My bridesmaids all loved their hair and makeup as well. The only thing is to make sure you don't expect Karen to do everyone- she just does the bride. This ended up being fine as well but I think it could be more clear, because I know several of my bridesmaids wanted her. Their artists did fantastic as well, though. Thank you for making me feel so beautiful! It helped make it a day I will remember for the rest of my life.
I looked like a princess! Karen was wonderful and helped me cover spots on my face that I have been trying to cover for forever! HIGHLY recommend!
Karen hall and co did an amazing job. I had 14 people needing hair and make up done before 11am. They came promptly to my house with 4 make up artists and 4 hair artists. All my bridesmaids, mother, and myself (bride) loved our hair and make up. I would 100% recommend her to anyone, for any occasion!
Wedding July 26, 2014
Karen & team were great to work with. Karen is great and made me feel very comfortable. I was extremely happy with how my hair and makeup turned out for the wedding day, and my bridesmaids felt the same way. They really listened to what we wanted, and did their best to make it happen. Very convenient that Karen & her team came to our hotel day-of, and Karen was very knowledgeable about the venue. I'd definitely recommend Karen & her team to anyone looking for a great look and convenience on the wedding day.
So happy I chose Karen Hall for my wedding day make up. I wasn't sure if I should go for the airbrush but I'm so glad I did. It looked flawless and still very natural. Karen listened to what I wanted and did such a great job. It was also so nice that she came to my suite day of so I didn't have to stress. Highly recommended!
Karen Hall did an excellent job on the makeup for my wedding. I received so many compliments on my makeup. I had two areas on my face that needed some "concealing" and she did a wonderful job covering them up. My skin looked flawless! Karen Hall is a makeup wonder-woman! I would highly recommend using her for your wedding or special event.
Karen and her assistant did an amazing job on my hair and make-up for my wedding! They traveled down (over an hour drive) to do the hair and make-up in my room. I already have some photos back and everything is perfect1 Thanks Karen Hall!
After loving my hair and makeup from the "trial run", I was looking so forward to my wedding day experience. Unfortunately, it was not what I expected! The stylists/artists were over 1 hour late arriving at our house, and a few NEVER arrived, because they had been at another wedding party appointment and were running behind schedule. I was a nervous wreck waiting for them, making phone calls to track them down, etc., when I should have been enjoying my wedding morning with my bridesmaids and family. Once some finally arrived, they were rushed to get everyone done and it was a frantic day. Karen worked on my makeup as the hair stylist worked simultaneously on my hair, which turned out messy due to the rush. It was nerve-wracking! We were 45 minutes late arriving at the church and missed some pictures as a result. My feeling is that Karen is overbooking brides, without the staff to handle the business. This is unfortunate since they are a talented group.
-only 3 of the promised 4 artists showed up
-all artists were between 1 - 1.5 hours late
-very unprofessional and very rude!!
-triple booked my wedding date
I contacted Karen around 7 months prior to my wedding, she was easy to schedule and I booked her for my 5:00 ceremony. I had a run through that went well, I didn't love the lips but she was happy to change it. I was slightly turned off that everything had to be paid for up front but went along with it given the great reviews. Karen did myself, my mother, and 6 bridesmaids. Turned out that Karen's team had 3 weddings that day... which really wouldn't be a problem if they had that amount of capacity. Karen and her team of 3 other artists were to show up at the hotel by 11 to do makeup for 8, finishing by 2. The first artist showed up an hour late, the other two (including Karen) were an hour and a half late. We left the hotel late and in turn missed out on time with the photographers that were waiting at the church. I was literally crying because I was so stressed. Not only was Karen's team late, they were also rude and told me my tears were not helping and I needed to pull it together. Not once did they apologize... makeup looked beautiful but the bad attitudes and tardiness made me truly hate the getting ready experience. I would have never believed a vendor could be so unprofessional... not worth it!
Karen and her team did a fantastic job. I would hire them again.
They did a great job! The makeup was beautiful and lasted the entire day and night. I only had to touch up my lips and occasionally powder my nose. Everyone was very friendly and we had a lot of fun. They came to my house and helped make the morning memorable. The hair was also very pretty. In addition to me, they did makeup and hair on four people and did it quickly. I would definitely recommend them.
Karen Hall and all of her staff were wonderful! They listened to what I wanted and were able to add additional people for both hair and makeup pretty close to the wedding date. Everyone looked beautiful as Karen has an amazing way of enhancing people's natural beauty without making them appear overly made-up. She also is genuinely a nice person and easy to talk to, and she seems to get a great sense of who her bride is and how best to provide her services so that it individualized and truly represents the person she's working with. At my trial appointment, she and her team did one test makeup and one test hair style and both were perfect for me. She absolutely got my vision right away. Overall, I had a great experience working with her and her team and I would highly recommend them for other brides and bridal parties.
Karen and her team did a wonderful job with hair and make-up for myself and my bridesmaids. Everyone looked and felt great! I loved my hair and make-up and felt like the best version of myself. Karen and her team arrived on time and kept us on track, and I loved that they came to us. We all felt comfortable and relaxed with them. I would highly recommend them to any Indy bride!
Karen did an amazing job on my wedding day makeup! She is truly an expert and made me look amazing on my big day!
Karen and her staff are absolutely amazing! I had a relatively large wedding party and they were still able to get us all finished in a timely manner. We had fun working with them too! As the bride, I got compliments on my hair and makeup throughout the entire wedding. Karen definitely knows how to make a girl feel beautiful!
Though a bit pricey it's totally worth it!! Karen and her staff know what they're doing and are so kind and helpful. It was such a pleasure to be able to jut arrive at the venue and not have to drive around getting my hair and make up done then drive to the venue. Hands down if you can book Karen!!
Go with Karen Hall if you want to take hair and makeup off your list of things to worry about on your wedding day.
I chose Karen Hall because of her amazing pictures and reasonable prices. I met at her studio for a trial run of hair and makeup. I went with an updo and the airbrush makeup. I thought the airbrush makeup filled in the lines in my face, making it look a little dry, so I told her this, and she came prepared to fix the problem on my wedding day.
I had 4 bridesmaids who all had hair done, 2 bridesmaids also had makeup done, plus a third bridesmaid who loved my makeup so much, she asked to have hers done as well, and the two mothers had makeup done. Pictures were supposed to start at 2, and Karen and her team (4 ladies all together) showed up at 11. We were just about all done by 12:30. Plenty of time and I wasn't rushed at all. She left one girl behind with me to touch up my makeup, and also sent her back after pictures before the ceremony to retouch it. She also left me with a tube of the lip gloss she used on me so I could reapply it throughout the night as needed.
I had the most beautiful updo, exactly like I wanted it. There WAS a younger hair stylist there who did one of my bridesmaid's hair who didn't seem to have the greatest attitude and my BM was becoming dissatisfied, but Karen came over and helped her out and my BM ended up happy with her hair.
Karen is an amazing professional and the employees she brings with her are dependable as well. The woman who did my hair was out of this world. I can't encourage you enough to use Karen Hall on your wedding day.
Karen and her team were awesome! They were efficient, prepared, fun! We had three people get makeup done and six people get hair done; we were never rushed, but finished ahead of schedule. My makeup and hair were camera ready all night and lasted through tears, dinner, and more tears! I would highly recommend their services to any bride.
