Carissa came highly recommended from many of my girlfriends in the DC area. Our trial was so fun and we got to try out many different ideas for the big day. On the day of our wedding Carissa was on time and very efficient - we got through five bridesmaids, my mother and myself and finished ahead of schedule which was helpful since the day is chaotic enough. I would definitely recommend Carissa to any bride getting married in the DMV.
Carissa has been my hair stylist for quite some time so there was no one else I would have trusted to do my hair for my wedding! I had ten bridesmaids which is quite a feat but Carissa organized our schedule perfectly! I never once felt nervous about the timing and everything we needed to get done in just a couple of hours. I received SO many compliments on my classic up do. It was exactly what I was going for. Carissa is truly an artist when it comes to hair but will listen to you every step of the way.
Carissa is amazing. When I first reached out to her she responded almost immediately and we set up time to chat and schedule a trial. Carissa's Instagram is filled with tons of gorgeous styles which helped to get a sense of what I wanted to test out at my trial. Carissa let me try three different styles making it easy to narrow down my look for my wedding day. In preparation for the big day she worked closely with my makeup artist to develop a schedule which made everything run super smoothly and stress-free on the morning of my wedding -- something every bride needs! I was beyond thrilled with my final look, which stayed perfectly in place from my 11 am ceremony until I left my after party at midnight. -Kathryn
