"Kim was WONDERFUL!!! She did a GREAT job with my hair and makeup!! Kim really listens to what YOU want. Kim is very understanding, very personable and makes you feel very comfortable. Before Kim, I had a couple of makeup trials with other people and it was not what I liked or wanted so I had some prior bad experiences. Kim always kept in touch with me, offered suggestions etc and was quick in her email responses back to me leading up to the Big Day . She was very flexible as well. I was doing a destination wedding and lived far away so I was unable to do a trial run with her prior to our wedding and I was nervous because of my past bad experiences with other people. However, to my surprise Kim called me on my wedding day and asked me if I wanted her to come earlier than my scheduled appointed time and that made me feel alot better knowing we would even have more time if we needed it . I loved my hair and makeup and so did my husband !!! (He saw the makeup trials from other people and did not like them either but Kim's work he loved !!) She also helped me get into my wedding dress and gave me touch up items to keep for touching up during the day and evening ! I would highly recommend Kim !!! Thank you so much Kim for making me look and feel very pretty on my wedding day !! I wish you the best and continued success!"
"Kim Larson was the best any Bride could imagine having for her wedding day. She was creative, patient, friendly and accommodating. My Bridal party looked amazingly beautiful for the entire day. I highly recommend Kim and her team as the perfect hair and makeup consultants for your perfect wedding day!"
"Kim was absolutely wonderful to work with. She is pleasant, kind, warm, fun, and incredibly talented. She made me feel so beautiful. She listened to what my ideas were for my hair and make up for my wedding, and she executed those thoughts beyond my greatest expectations. I felt (and looked) like a princess. My wedding day was magical, and I got endless comments on my hair and makeup. I also did not need much touching up, and I danced....a lot. Even with all the activity of the day, my hair and makeup still looked impeccable.
Kim's coworker was a delight as well, making my maid of honor look so lovely, as well as my mother, mother in law, and niece (who was my flower girl).
Kim is extremely professional, accommodating, and has such a gift. I would highly recommend working with her!!!"
"Kim was over-the-top wonderful and helped make our special day truly special. Hair and makeup for two brides all of which was done beautifully. Kim brings with her a natural down to earth, caring and super friendly personality along with her professionalism, produced a calm and happy atmosphere. Before Kim arrived, we were feeling somewhat stressed and anxious but most of those feelings faded during our prep time with Kim, leaving more room for feelings of joy, happiness and love. We can't thank Kim enough!"
"Kim did an excellent job! I, unlike many brides, decided not to do a trial run for my wedding hair and makeup. Kim and I discussed my vision and style through email, phone and sending photos. Come day of, I could not have been happier. My look was very natural with a half up hair-do and loose waves (which actually held for a very long time). The makeup was just right. Just enough to elevate my look without being overdone. Kim and her team did a great job with my bridesmaids as well. I let each of them choose the style of hair they desired and each girl looked unique and beautiful, while also cohesive. I would recommend her to any of my friends."
"Kim was an absolute joy to work with. She was super flexible and even recommended coming early on my wedding day to make sure we had enough time and didn't feel rushed during hair and makeup. Kim made me feel calm and comfortable on my wedding day. My hair and makeup turned out perfect and it lasted throughout the entire night. I'm so thankful to have chosen her for my wedding day. I would recommend her to any bride and hope to cross paths with her again sometime in the future. Thanks Kim!!!!!!"
"Kim did a WONDERFUL job on my hair and makeup! I couldn't have asked for better. Since I live in Texas and we were having a destination wedding, she did a great job of communicating with me and figuring out exactly what I had in mind and wanted before the big day. After speaking with her on the phone and sending her a picture of myself and some ideas, I was completely confident that everything would go smoothly. My hair and makeup never looked so good. Kim is very professional and very friendly and I would highly recommend her to any bride-to-be! Especially the out-of-town ones like myself... I would usually be nervous without a practice run, but I completely trusted Kim."
"Where to start....in a word Kim is AMAZING!! I saw her reviews and they were all glowing, so when I contacted her I figured she would be booked (I contacted her in Sept.) and yes, she was booked but to my luck it was for an earlier wedding (mine was 7pm). I did my trial run with Kim and immediately knew I was picking the right person. The day of the wedding she was on-time, and my hair and make-up looked FABULOUS! My hair looked exactly as I wanted it and my make-up was perfect ! I received so many compliments. Not only did Kim do a great job she is also a great woman. Each time I saw her we had a great time laughing and talking. Anyone getting married in Carmel/Monterey -USE KIM. You will not be dissapointed. She was well worth the money!!"
"Kim was excellent! I have never felt prettier than I did on my wedding day! She did all of my bridesmaids hair and we were ALL very happy. She is great at the beachy waves, bohemian look that I wanted. I never like too much makeup and I am very picky when other people do my makeup, but she nailed it and I didn't look too made up. She is very sweet & personable and I would highly recommend her to anyone!"
"Even though I was nervous being an out -of -state bride, Kim was very easy to work with. I didn't have a chance to do my trial hair run with her, but after showing her pictures of my trial done by another stylist, she recreated the style even better than I could have imagined. Her makeup job fit me perfectly as well. I was very pleased with her services, and would gladly recommend her!"
"Kim was wonderful to work with! She responded to my emails quickly and was very easy to deal with. She also made me look gorgeous on my wedding day! I loved her and would definitely use her again!
We loved Kim!"
"I had a very small wedding party. Kim was on-time, professional and personable.
She brought with her all her notes on what we had envision our wedding hair and make-up styles to be.
She did a great job and everyone loved our hair-dos. I would highly recommend her! She is highly skilled and super friendly!"
"Kim had done my hair twice before as a bridesmaid, and I knew she'd do a wonderful job translating my vision for "Reese Witherspoon Oscar hair" into a style that would work with my hair at my recent ranch wedding. She and her assistant did a remarkable job fixing up seven of my bridesmaids -- all of whom said they were so happy with the results -- and my mother, who raved that she'd never seen her makeup look so beautiful. Everything was timely and so professional, but also warm and friendly. All in all, it was a wonderful experience with Kim Larson."
"Kim is AMAZING!! My hair and makeup looked great, I got a TON of compliments, and multiple guests at our wedding were so impressed with my hair that they took pictures of it and put them on Pinterest! Thank you, Kim!!!"
"Kim was truly a pleasure and such a joy to work with! She was very gentle-natured and kind-hearted. She also had a calming energy about her that made me feel immediately comfortable working with her. The hairstyle, based on an idea/image I found, was so beautiful and came out perfectly! And my make up was SO gorgeous, very soft and natural looking, which was exactly what I had hoped for. I highly recommend Kim to anyone, she is a wonderful person and is very talented at what she does! Thanks to Kim, I felt radiant all day long and still remain full of smiles when I think about the experience of that day!"
"Kim Larson truly made my wedding day in Carmel March 2013 so special. She is extremely professional and skilled, and she is also extremely kind and thoughtful. I have never felt more beautiful, thanks to her vision and application of my make up and hair, and she helped me feel calm and relaxed before my wedding. She is truly FABULOUS!"
"Kim was absolutely wonderful and it was a privilege to have her do my hair and makeup on my wedding day! I was a little nervous about finding the right person to help me get ready, but once I met Kim for our initial consultation, I knew I was in good hands! I opted not to do the full hair and makeup trial, and I appreciated how flexible Kim was with giving me the option to do that or not. I did have one crisis moment when my veil came and I wasn't sure how it was going to work with my hair and dress....I called Kim and she immediately responded and set up a time for us to meet to figure it out, free of charge. I was very impressed by her quick response and desire to help put any worries I had to rest. The day of my wedding, Kim was great! She was on time, very professional, and she has the most cheerful and bright presence! She was truly a joy to have around, and I had a lot of fun with her! I was so happy with the way my hair and makeup turned out, everything was absolutely gorgeous! It meant a lot to me when she told me that she wouldn't be finished until I felt beautiful and felt like everything was right. She had me ready to go right on time, and gave my maid of honor a touch up kit and instructions on how to take off my veil- she really does think of everything! I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to have Kim as my wedding day stylist, she did an absolutely beautiful job! Thanks so much Kim!! :)"
"I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed working with Kim. Her studio is beautiful, she is friendly and responsive, and she is interested in making you feel comfortable and gorgeous in your way, not hers! She did a tremendous job listening and incorporating what I explained into a phenomenal hair and makeup experience. I felt relaxed throughout my interactions with her, she was very specific with her instructions and resources, and my hair and makeup looked absolutely perfect! Thanks so much, Kim!"
