She truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to make you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself.”
Like most women, this part of my wedding was extremely important to me. I had a strong beauty vision that I was going for, and when I was looking around for an artist in the beginning of my wedding planning, I was getting a little worried that I would not find an artist that could execute my certain style.....until I found Caitlyn. I had an out of state wedding so my trust level was increased due to not knowing anyone in the industry already, but the moment I saw Caitlyn's work, I knew she was it. Caitlyn's talent is so incredible and diverse. She doesn't just do the basic steps for each client, she truly customizes a look for your features and your personal vision. One of many things that makes Caitlyn stand out above the rest is that she does both hair and makeup, and she does them exceptionally well. Every bride needs Caitlyn for their big day because you will not only be taken care of professionally, but you'll feel a comfort with her that every bride needs on their wedding day. She has the most precious and warm heart. When I think back on my wedding day, she is someone that I miss working with so much. She not only made me feel like a priority, but also like a friend. She is the best in the business, hands down. I will forever be grateful to her and how she made me feel, not only by her extreme talent, but also by her presence on the biggest day of my life so far. My wedding would not have been the same without her - I truly mean that.
Caitlyn was absolutely amazing for my wedding day hair and make up! She masterfully curled my hair with the ability to put it up later in the day, despite the heat and humidity of late June. She also has the most beautiful vision for make up. She knows how to exactly highlight your features and make you feel beautiful, while still feeling like yourself. Caitlyn created a neutral, glowy palette for my day and I could not be more grateful. She is so sweet, professional, and made me feel so comfortable and confident in my skin. Caitlyn also did my mom and younger sister's make up (who both were very skeptical to get their make up professionally done considering they wear very minimal to no make up everyday) but Caitlyn did an amazing job making them feel minimal, yet enhanced. Caitlyn brought a team of other artists for my wedding day, for 12 of us to have hair and make up done, and they were all so talented, fun, and professional. All my bridesmaids had a great time getting ready together with the help of her amazing team. They both absolutely loved the outcome. Caitlyn also did my hair and make up for my boudoir shoot, which made me feel like an absolute bombshell for my photos! She is able to see the vision exactly as I describe it and create the perfect look to enhance all of your beauty. For any bride on her wedding day, I would recommend Caitlyn every time to look and feel your absolute best!!
Caitlyn and her team are absolutely incredible. I was one of Caitlyn's August brides. I was blown away not only by her outstanding hair and makeup talent but also her caring and calming nature and attention to detail. She perfectly executed my hair and make up vision and was also such a great help to everyone around that day (photographer, videographer, planner, etc). All of my bridesmaids (hair and make up done by her team) were stunning and I could not have asked for more. Caitlyn and her team are truly the best of the best!
We had a trial together which ensured my trust - she tried a complicated hairstyle and even mixed a few lipsticks to find my perfect shade. It takes times to do these things, but Caitlyn insisted on excellence. Wouldn't have it any other way!
Caitlyn brought Nono as a second artist, who addressed all of my mom's needs (mom is a bit shy). Both Caitlyn and Nono went above and beyond when my dad asked for a small adjustments on my mom's hair.
It is truly a luxury package and every penny is worth it!
As a newly engaged bride, I had some angst over how I would wear my hair and makeup for our big day. I had no idea what I really wanted. Then I met Caitlyn...and she immediately put me at ease. She has this calming magical power that makes you feel like you've been friends forever but still maintains the upmost professionalism. She truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to make you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself.
I highly recommend booking Caitlyn for concierge services post-getting ready. She stayed by my side the entire afternoon until our ceremony -- touching up my lipstick, taming my fly aways, and making sure every picture with our photographer was perfect.
Her team, Kiate and Amanda, were absolute rockstars. I had a diverse wedding party, and Kiate and Amanda did a fantastic job working with different skin types and textured hair. Everyone looked gorgeous!
I wish every bride a Caitlyn & Team on their wedding day. Thank you, Caitlyn, for all that you did to make our day so special!
Finding a make-up artist was a daunting task on its own. Besides the sheer number of MUAs in the DMV area, it was hard finding an artist that worked with people of color and could still create a palette that seemed glowing and natural. On top of that, I wasn’t one who personally wore make-up too frequently. I had an idea in my head, but in reality, I just didn’t want to look caked up like a clown. I didn’t want to show off my eczema that likes to make a guest appearance when I’m stressed and I certainly didn’t want to come off as anyone other than myself.
Then, I found Caitlyn. Immediately, I feel in love with her stunning work. Her examples covered not just all skintones, but all variations of brides – glam, natural, cultural, and everything in between. Hiring her was an easy, friendly process, as was the trial. And let me tell you...that trial blew me away! After the trial, I wasn't just secure in my choice, but I became excited for my wedding day - that was big.
Come the wedding day, Caitlyn arrived with plenty of time, did make-up for my MOH and my mom, and then called me to the chair. She kept me relaxed, engaged, and just treated me like a person – something every bride needs on that day. Even when things got crazy and chaotic, she made it clear that YOU were her main focus—how you looked and how you FELT—everything else was secondary. It’s moments like that that I still recall when I think about my wedding.
Caitlyn took the very definition of beauty and gave it a new meaning. It wasn’t just a glowy face and dark red lips…it was support, confidence, ease, and excitement. When I looked in the mirror, I was in awe of myself. Who could’ve thought I could be that beautiful and still feel like me?
From one particular bride to the next, allow yourself some easy choices—Caitlyn is one of them.
Caitlyn was an absolute joy to work with. Not only did she make me feel comfortable during our trial preview, but on the day of. I couldn’t have imagined getting ready with any other stylist. Her calm and cool demeanor, detailed oriented work, and awesome personality made for such a special moment between her and I. Not only did she make me look and feel like a queen, she gave me exactly what I was looking for my special day. I value our relationship and truly recommend her to any DMV bride and beyond!
Caitlyn and her team went ABOVE AND BEYOND for our wedding day! My bridal party had 9 bridesmaids, a mother of the bride, and myself to get ready. Caitlyn and her team had us all looking absolutely flawless and on time. They were pleasant, kind, and professional. I could not imagine having any one else do my hair and makeup on my wedding day. Caitlyn knew my exact vision and brought it to life even better than I could have imagined! It was also so hot and humid on our wedding day and my hair and makeup stayed completely perfect all day long. Caitlyn was also there with me during my photos to help with touch ups and help keep me cool. So basically she’s your personal artist and best friend at the same time. Seriously, a dream!
My bridesmaids were so happy with their hair and makeup and still talk about it. Every other wedding we have been to we all wish that Caitlyn and her team were there to glam us up! You will be making the best decision by choosing Caitlyn and her team!!
