Kathy and Poev did the makeup and hair for my wedding this July. If I could give them 10 stars I would.

I was a bit nervous because I had a pretty big wedding party: 5 bridesmaids, me (the bride), and mothers of the bride and groom, but Kathy and Poev were pros...they arrived on time and even finished early.

Kathy is outstanding with makeup. She asks you about how much makeup you usually wear, what kind of look you are going for, and carefully selects products that make you look great. She gave me great tips on what products I could buy before the wedding to do touch-ups on my wedding night after she was finished, as well as what products to avoid to make sure my pictures turned out well. I looked beautiful in photos but still looked like myself. The makeup stood up fantastically with a little light rain and lots of dancing (read: sweating) later in the night.

Poev is a hair master. She did a nice job of taking into consideration how I wanted my hair to look (I really wanted a beachy braid as part of the hair style), but was very honest with me about what my hair could actually do (my hair is very fine, so no giant braids for me like I saw on Pinterest unless I wanted extensions). I figured I was going to have to get extensions anyways, but she somehow did some hair magic and made it look like I had WAY more hair than I had. The hair held up well through wind, rain, and dancing.

Perhaps best of all was that Poev and Kathy did a really great job working with my sometimes picky mother-in-law who has really limited English and can be hard to converse with...Kathy happily adjusted her lip color for her until she was happy, and Poev complimented her on her hair and told her she had good hair. She was so thrilled! My mother-in-law is REALLY picky about her hair but she LOVED what Poev did and liked her so much she wants to have Poev style her hair whenever she visits us from Portland. I am not kidding when I say my mother-in-law and I had a major bonding moment in our relationship due to our experience Kathy and Poev.

Also, do you know how some hair or makeup artists are great with one type of hair or complexion but struggle with others? That is not the case with Kathy and Poev. My wedding party was pretty diverse in terms of complexion, skin tone, hair length, and hair type (thick or thin)...Kathy and Poev made everybody look fantastic. They truly are pros.

Kathy is really responsive via email, and Poev even let me text her a picture of how my mother-in-law likes to wear her hair before the wedding date so she could get an idea of how to style her hair and make her happy.

If you are a girl on a budget like me, I was hesitant to book Kathy and Poev at first because of their minimum...it was above what I wanted to spend on hair and makeup. However, after working with them, I can say they are amazing professionals and it was absolutely worth it. I would highly recommend Kathy and her team for your big day! You definitely won’t be disappointed.
