Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry was on my preferred vendor list. Elena was the makeup artist / hair stylist for my wedding. She did a fantastic job! I had a destination wedding and unfortunately I wasn't able to schedule a trial. No need. I sent Elena pictures of a few hair styles I was thinking of and she far exceeded my imagination. We had a beach ceremony and it was very windy that day. My hair stayed in perfect from beginning to end. Not only did I love my hair but I loved my make up more!! It was the first time I used air brush makeup. It was minimal, tasteful yet beautiful. I got so many compliments. Book Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry- you won't be disappointed.
Elena and her team at Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry were amazing! Elena brought 2 other stylists for our entire party (7 ladies) to prepare hair and makeup. The girls were punctual and very friendly and personable. The hair and makeup of everyone involved was awesome! The eyelashes were especially awesome! Meeting with Elena before the wedding for the trial was a lot of fun and helped make the actual wedding day less stressful. We were finished on schedule or a little early. So glad I picked Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry!
I could not have asked for a better experience. They were professional and came with creative twists to our previously selected hairstyles. They were early and flexible with our location. Thank you again for making my bridesmaids and myself perfect for my big day.
2.Elena and her crew are amazing! I used them for my wedding in June and I am so happy I found Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry for me and my girls. In total I had nine girls getting hair and make-up done. All of the artists were extremely professional and amazing to work with. Everyone looked absolutely incredible and we were finished ahead of schedule. I am so happy that I found Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry and would recommend them to everyone I know.
Elena and her team are AMAZING!!! From my engagement shoot, trial too the day of the wedding she was so easy to work with! She is also an incredible artist that takes the time to understand what you want and adds suggestions and ideas that enhance your vision. We all had our makeup airbrushed and got individual lashes, it came out perfect! The team also had a great attitude and was very fun to have on my wedding day. I also scheduled to have touch ups for me and my bridal party (since my venue was outside and we had a first look hours before the ceremony) and it was honestly the best decision I made! She was so sweet helping me with my dress, making sure every strand of hair was picture perfect all the time and helping calm me down with the wedding day craziness lol Thank you so much for everything!!.
Please use Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry for your wedding! They are extremely talented, on time and very professional! They made our day of getting ready so fun! Everyone loved how their hair and make up looked, including myself! I was recommended to use them by several friends and I have to say BEST DECISION! If you are looking for a great experience on your wedding day, without a doubt, use Key West Hair and Makeup Artistry!
cannot rave enough about the service we received with KW Hair and Make Artistry. From the first time I met Elena during the trial I knew how wonderful it was going to be and they truly went above and beyond.I am not one usually who wears much make up and they truly listened to every request, as well as offered some amazing suggestions. They were even able to accommodate a couple last minute additions when some of my bridesmaids plans fell through literally last minute and everyone looked absolutely perfect. I would recommend them in a heart beat. Someone you can truly trust and count on on your big day.
I am from New York, NY and I had a destination wedding on 3/20/17 at The Casa Marina in Key West. I hired Elena and her ladies for hair and makeup and as my bridesmaid gift I bought them each hair services on my wedding day. When it comes to service, Elena has very clear communication and is very organized. I worked with Her to plan services over the phone and we were able to sort everything out quickly and efficiently. I also really appreciated Elena's honesty in telling you what looks good and what doesn't. Elena was always on time whether it be for a phone call, trial, or wedding day. Quality of work: hair/makeup - incredible. I showed all of my bridesmaids the Hair and Makeup website before the wedding, and everyone was excited to get glammed up. On wedding day, my bridesmaids and I looked so beautiful. Everyone's hair and makeup was flawless and our hair/makeup lasted throughout the entire day of crying and humidity. I hope one day Elena moves to New York (hehe) so I can have her make me up for all my important events. To sum it up: go with Elena!
WOW! I first meet Elena and the team when I was a bridesmaid at my Best Friends Wedding. The team was so great then so I knew the moment I started to look for vendors that I had to have Elena and the team ( I think I secured them over a year in advance just to be sure)! I was so happy with the way my hair and makeup came out. My nerves were a little shot but having the ladies there and the music going really set the mood. Thank you all!!!.
I HIGHLY recommend KW Hair and Makeup Artistry to anyone looking for an AWESOME hair and make-up team for their wedding or special event. Elena and her team are nothing short of amazing!!! They were so professional, friendly and, most importantly, extremely talented. Everyone looked and felt absolutely beautiful!!! Elena went above and beyond to make sure that my hair and make-up was exactly what I wanted (and that it would withstand any wind or rain at my outdoor/oceanfront ceremony)! And, sure enough, it was pretty windy during our first look pictures and during the ceremony but my hair and make-up made it through perfectly! My wedding day would not have been the same without them!
I used Elena this past Saturday for my wedding! I absolutely loved how my makeup and hair turned out as well as my bridesmaids, mom, mother in law and grandma. Everyone looked amazing and I am so thankful I found her! She was so accommodating by coming to my apartment in Key West for my hair and makeup trial and was so easy to work with! I would highly recommend using her for event hair and makeup!
Elena was sweet, kind and easy to communicate with (even 2 short weeks before I needed her)! Her team arrived and kept on schedule throughout the day. Makeup was catered to each person in the party - she considered their skin type, usual routine and goals before starting on each girl. She let me (the bride) check periodically and tweak until it was exactly as I had envisioned. Our hair was soft, touchable & romantic, and actually stayed that way all night long! I was amazed that each of our pinterest inspo pictures actually turned out so well.. trust that Elena and her team will be able to make you beautiful.
Elena and the other makeup artist she brought to help were amazing! I had two girls have their hair done by her and they were VERY happy with how it turned out! I let my girls choose whatever makeup look they wanted and they were all SO HAPPY with how they looked. As for me, she did EXACTLY what I had envisioned!! I didn't want a "natural" look at all and she gave me the full glam look I had in my head. So many of my guests commented on how amazing my makeup looked even toward the end of the night. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and if I ever need event makeup again I would absolutely book her! Thank you again Elena XOXO!!
Elena and the rest of the team at Key West Hair & Makeup Artistry were absolutely wonderful to work with for the hair and makeup for our wedding. I was so happy with my hair and makeup as were my bridesmaids. They were prompt, friendly, and professional and I’m so excited I chose them for our wedding. I would recommend Key West Hair & Makeup Artistry a thousand times over to any bride!!
Elena definitely deserves 5 stars, she was amazing in every way! I was in a last minute pinch (about a month before my wedding) because my makeup artist had to cancel on me and being a bride from out of town I had to rely on WW to find someone in a hurry. Elena was the first person I reached out to who responded and she really took the time via email correspondence to get to know my style and what I was look I was going for. She asked me to email her pictures of myself and the look I wanted to achieve and throughout the process really made me feel comfortable with my choice to book her. We did a trial just days before the wedding and she really took the time and effort to listen to my suggestions and also added a few of her own until we achieved the perfect look. I felt confident going into my wedding day that my makeup was going to be amazing, and it was. Thank you so much Elena, I couldn't have asked for a better artist and a more wonderful person!
Elena was very professional and easy to work with. She always returned my emails and phone calls promptly, and she showed up to my event on time. Best of all, she did a fabulous job with my hair and makeup on my wedding day! The makeup she applied looked glamorous, yet natural. It accentuated my positive features without looking too dramatic or overdone. I could not have been happier with her services and talents.
I had a great time working with Elena I needed someone for hair and makeup for a wedding reception very last minute. I'd just moved to the area and with so many things going on, I'd forgotten that I needed someone to do that for me! (In my defense, this was a South Asian wedding so there were lots of events - this was the last of them.) Elena was extremely responsive and was able to fit me into her schedule (and had no problem accommodating when I needed to change the time a bit). Being that I'd just moved, I had very little furniture in my house, but Elena worked around that. Everyone said they loved the makeup and it stayed on throughout a hot, humid (with sporadic thunderstorms) sort of day at a mostly outdoor venue. She's not cheap, but I would say reasonable.
Elena Southcott was my hair and make up stylist for my wedding day and again for a 2nd wedding reception. 1st I would like to say that Elena is extremely easy going, professional and a perfectionist. During my trial she was completely open to my input but was great at using her own creativity to create the perfect look. My wedding was on the beach in Key West and Elena took her time to make sure each strand of hair was perfectly placed and that my make up was thoroughly applied. I don’t wear much makeup so I wanted a rather natural look that would show great in pictures and last. I got so many compliments on both my hair and makeup and could not be more pleased. I would recommend her services 100x over, she is great to work with and is amazing at what she does.
I absolutely loved my makeup! I had the airbrush makeup done by Elena, which was amazing! She also did the makeup for my bridesmaids, which looked so beautiful and lasted all day! I definitely recommend the airbrush makeup application. The look was natural and flawless. I couldn't have asked for anything more... thanks Elena!
I contacted Elena with about 24 hours notice to do my hair and make-up for my engagement photos, and I am so glad that I found her! Not only was she professional and likeable, but also very talented! My hair stayed curled throughout an outdoor and windy photo session and my make-up enhanced my best features. I'd highly recommend Elena to anyone in the Key West area looking for hair and/or make-up for a special event.
Elena is an artist & wonderful to work with! Her staff did my mother, sister and MOH as well. Everyone looked stunning. The makeup held through the brunch wedding and to the end of the evening on our first night of the honeymoon (so essentially from 6am to midnight)! She listened to my wants and expectation before even beginning. The hair and makeup for the wedding looked exactly like the trial, so I was beyond pleased. I'm grateful for KW Hair and Makeup Artistry- the photos will last for generations, and everyone looks perfect! Elena is a blessing!
Elena!Thank you for making me feel like a million bucks on my wedding day! You are such a sweetheart and an amazing make up artist and don't even get me started on my hair! I was so worried that it wouldn't hold up but it was gorgeous! LOVED IT! Can't wait to find a reason to use you soon again :)
I felt like a close friend was doing my hair/makeup on my wedding day because she made me feel so relaxed and at ease. All my bridesmaids and family looked stunning and her team is as skilled as she is. I would without hesitation recommend Elena- I look forward to working with her again in the future and cannot wait to see the rest of the photos from our photographer so I can keep admiring her work.
Elena was the first hair/makeup vendor I went to a trial for and cancelled all others right after. Her demeanor, happy spirit and listening skills were key for me. With the work she did during the trial I knew she was going to make me look and feel like a princess the day of my wedding and boy did she deliver!! Absolutely worth the money and peace of mind.
Elena did my hair and makeup and had 2 other girls do my bridesmaids hair and makeup. They were ALL amazing! great with communication and they did such an amazing job. Elena is so talented and so good at what she does. I highly recommend!!
