er the experience I had with Kayla will not be my last. Her attention to detail is so evident. She took the time to listen to me and what I was looking for. I wanted a natural but bold look for my photos.
The results were better then I could have expected. I not only felt beautiful but I felt like me! The high quality products did not make my face feel heavy or brake out. I have very sensitive skin. My hair was beautiful and somehow held the curls. I need her secret on that one.
Kayla is kind and very helpful when helping me narrow down the look I was going for. I can't wait for her to make me beautiful again! Thank you Kayla

Kayla has an awesome personality--fun and bubbly--she was more than willing to work with us when we had to move our date due to covid.
Unfortunately we had a poor experience at my trial, and so we had to break our contract as I did not feel co...
nfident in her abilities, especially as I am planning my wedding far away from the destination. I had sent Kayla photos of what I was looking for--a sleek, low, intricate bun. I had told Kayla during our initial phone consult that I was not a "boho" bride, and I was looking for a clean, natural look--no problem, she said.
I flew across the country specifically for the trial, and drove 5 hours with my mom and sister to Idaho. My mom wanted to trial hair/makeup with me, and my sister wanted to try hair. The morning of the trial, Kayla was running 20 mins late for our 9am trial due to traffic, which happens. However, she had gotten in from another wedding the night before, and had booked a flight at 12 noon for another event--so we had an hour and 40 minutes for everything. Thus, the entire experience felt incredibly rushed. I had prioritized and booked the trial over 2 months in advance. The airbrushed makeup was nice. However for the fake lashes, every time they tried to glue them on glue got everywhere, and I couldn't open my eye well. There was also a gap between my real lashes and my false ones. My mom had the same issue. The products the used were unimpressive--Covergirl lipwear, etc. For $100, I expected something better. Not a deal breaker, but concerning.
The final straw was my hair--I sat down in the chair, and the entire hair style from start to finish took about 15 minutes--for a $100 dollars. It was a small, messy bun with a few bobby pins that I could have done myself. I felt like I was going to work, it felt that messy. It was so far off from what I asked for. I was honest, and told Kayla this, so she tried again, but again the results were very disappointing, and I had to fight back tears. When I showed photos to a different hair stylist she couldn't believe that was a trial. I have seen my girlfriend's trial photos for similar styles, and none of them looked like this. I understand that a trial is not meant to be perfect--it is a time to troubleshoot. But how could I trust that on the day of my wedding, Kayla could do something radically different than the trial? As a cross-country bride, that felt like too much of a gamble. She was saying that she could bring some fake hair, or inserts to put into the bun, but she didn't bring them with her, which felt really unprepared.
The entire experience--an 1:40 minutes--cost 500 dollars, which is unfathomable. The only person who liked her hair was my MOH--my mom's hair style was super flat and not very flattering, but by the time they finished and my mom wanted them to try something else, they were packing up to leave for their flight. Again, I think they were incredibly kind people, but we felt taken advantage of. She also never checked in with us after the experience. It would have gone a long way if she would have messaged me something like "hey, I know it wasn't exactly what you wanted, but here is how I'm going to make it how you want it"--but no, she took the money and we never heard from her after.
My planner tried to get a partial refund for the experience since it was rushed and unprepared. However Kayla refused saying we got what we paid for. Incredibly disappointing customer service all around.

omething on your hair and make up. She definitely has skills. She brought me a bridal morning care package along with the sweetest card and said it was because I wasn’t getting my typical bridal party she’d do the best she could to make up for it and be my “maid of honor” It was incredibly touching and thoughtful. She did an amazing job on my hair and makeup and made my husband’s jaw drop when he saw me. Kayla is probably one of the sweetest ladies you’ll ever meet and so good at what she does. She enhances your natural features and makes you look like the best version of yourself which I really appreciated. I’d highly recommend her to anyone needing hair and/or makeup done for their wedding or any special event for that matter. Thank you, Kayla!

I hired Kayla as I am pretty clueless when it comes to hair and makeup. I showed her a picture of my dress and she asked me questions to better understand the look I was wanting. From there she was able to come up with an updo and makeup style ...
that was perfect! The look was very glamorous and bridal but also still me without being overdone. My bridesmaids also had their hair done by Kayla and they looked fantastic! Kayla is friendly, engaging, and a calm presence while getting ready.

ess) in which I discovered full glam is far outside her skill set. She loves hair but offers makeup as a needed part of the full package and the difference in the passion level showed through for me. The eyes she did were beautiful but the little tricks of the trade you expect with special occasion makeup, like a separate eye shadow primer and under eye concealer to highlight were not part of her system. Also, she has this philosophy of not doing the "full look" at the trial to keep things kind of a surprise for you. I think that's a terrible idea because I walked out of the trial, which I payed for, without confirmation she could do the hair I wanted, no ability to make small adjustments, and no idea how long it would take her. Again, very nice human and I think beautifully suited to her usual audience, but since I lost money here as a bride (both on the trial and on breaking the contract because the trail left me so anxious) I thought I would put out there that if you are seeking full glam and in depth makeup this is perhaps not the artist you want to book.
