"Kathie is wonderful. She is super nice and professional. I found her by researching the Knot for a hair and makeup artist and was so pleased to find the perfect fit for my wedding style. She gave my bridesmaids cute rockabilly hairstyles and I had a more traditional curly side bun. She was flexible with the trial schedule and was early enough to set up the day of. She was really fast, too, so everyone had extra time before the wedding. And the airbrush makeup is great and lasted the whole day! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a hair and makeup artist, especially if you want a little edge for your wedding!"

"Kathie has been cutting my hair for a long time. Like a good tattoo artist, when you find someone that gets it right, you never have to worry about having to find someone else and hope that they do as good of a job. I am reasonably conscious of my appearance and when she cuts my hair it is perfect every time. I occasionally do some modeling for photo shoots etc, and Kathie is always willing to style my hair on site so I never have to rely on the stylists provided and risk them jerking up my hair. Kathie is always professional, accommodating, and easy to work with."

"Kathie styled my hair for my August 2010 wedding. She was fantastic. I'm from out of town, so she accommodated my schedule by doing a trial run at her apartment the day before the wedding--which worked out great for my rehearsal dinner. She listened to my suggestions and got ideas from pictures of hairstyles that I sent her. Kathie was extremely FLEXIBLE and didn't make me feel rushed in any way. She took the time to get my hair exactly the way I wanted it and was relaxed and easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, Kathie showed up early and was able to work around people dressing me and putting on my make-up. It was a wonderful experience, and I loved how my hair looked for my wedding! The style lasted all day, even with the humidity. I would choose Kathie for my stylist again without any hesitation! Thanks, Kathie!!"

"Kathie has been doing my hair for years and I cannot see myself going to anyone else! She did one of the most important days of my wedding! I could not have asked for a better hairstyle. I loved it! It was exactly what I wanted. She made me feel so beautiful on this special day, as well as when she routinely does my hair. Kathie has a way about her that makes me feel so comfortable in trusting her advice and her talent. She is truly a talented hairstylist and I would never go to anyone else!!"

My entire experience with Kathie was great. Starting the trail, she had lots of great ideas that would work with my hair type and the style I was going for. She was very easy to work with and very professional. She arrived at my hotel early and stayed until she made sure I looked perfect. My hair stayed that way the entire day and night despite the crazy wind that day. She also worked well with my bridesmaids. All of their hair turned out beautiful and all unique. Her prices are very affordable and I would definitely recommend Kathie to all my friends and family.
