“Absolute. Best. Wedding. Decision. BACKSTORY: Wedding beauty research was stressful for me. I have had a few major "misses" with professional beauty styling in the past. I was so overwhelmed by research that I finally booked JK on gut instinct. As soon as I spoke to Jennifer on the phone, I knew I was in the right hands. PROCESS: Jennifer herself was booked for my wedding date, so I got to work with her team members Jenny (makeup) and Dina (hair). Jennifer runs her business with incredible professionalism. As my main point of contact, she was always quick to respond and took full accountability for every detail. She put together a seamless schedule, including another hairstylist at a second location for my fiance's family. TRIAL: The team put me at ease and nailed my vision on the first try! We needed some minor tweaks: My first set of lashes started peeling a few hours after my trial, so I emailed Jennifer that night and she said I could come in the next day to try a different lash and glue. That second round was perfect and gave me total peace of mind. Dina and I also discussed a slight change to my hair. I considered a second hair trial, but I decided to skip it and keep the faith. WEDDING DAY: Everyone NAILED it. Jennifer came to check in, which she did not need to do. My hair was...flawless. Dina worked in a heavy piece of hair jewelry, which I didn't have at my trial. My hair held up late into the night, yet was ridiculously easy to take down. Jenny gave me a classic look that still felt soft and romantic—and the lashes felt like nothing all day! I was blown away by how my makeup "stay put" through 12+ hours. Not the slightest smudge or under-eye residue. BOTTOM LINE: Jennifer Kinford is a beauty expert and a first-rate professional, and her entire team follows suit. I have NEVER felt more beautiful. My bridesmaids were equally thrilled. All of these ladies are true talents and total pros. THANK YOU!!
