    Trial went wrong, no fix to it

    Carly was very likeable in person. I showed
    photos of the type of curl I was wanting for the TRIAL...the purpose
    of the trial being that you show what you want to see if the person
    can achieve it for the day and to see if it will look good. The first
    style she did one me looked completely different than
    the photos I showed. I mentioned this and she tried to fix it but it ended
    up looking like a curl that looks like what I can do myself at home. As she
    was nice in person I felt too shy to say anything to her then but I did
    send her an email after where I attached the photos of what she did vs what
    I showed and said that for the trial what I asked for didn't happen and
    expected a complimentary or discounted trial, but she gave the option to
    charge full if I felt unsure. I went to my hair colorist who did my hair
    perfectly with the photos I showed so I ended up going with her.

    Hi Tiana,

    I am very saddened to receive these comments regarding your Glam In Van experience. It is very upsetting when your bridal hair goals are not achieved, and I’d like to take the opportunity to clarify what transpired.

    At your trial you presented photos of a down, half up, and updo style as you were unsure of the hairstyle you wanted, and I created all three looks for you. You had expressed happiness and excitement for all three styles and thanked me at the end of your appointment. I would never end a trial with an unsatisfied bride, and even if the smallest of concerns were presented to me, I would have made tweaks and adjustments until you were happy. If a bride were to email me after the trial expressing dissatisfaction for how it went, a complimentary retrial would absolutely be offered.

    A month after your trial, I received an email that you wanted to try two more different styles. Unfortunately trying additional styles in another trial is the cost of another trial. As always, my passion is creating makeup and hair that makes my clients feel truly beautiful on their special day. I’ve never been in this situation with a client before and I sincerely apologize that it didn’t work out between us. I hope you had a wonderful wedding and have the happiest of happily ever afters.

    With love,
    Carly

    Absolutely Incredible

    Carly provided hair and makeup for my engagement photos and then for my wedding.

    She is extremely accommodating and did an unbelievable job. She is kind, funny and so wonderful to work with. She goes the extra mile to ensure everything is perfect and that you’re happy with everyone’s look. She and Sima did an incredible job with my bridesmaids, MOB, MOG and my sister in-law, and I felt more beautiful than I ever thought possible.

    All of our makeup held up all day and night - I actually slept with my makeup on and it still looked flawless in the morning, And our hair withstood the high winds on the 25th.

    I can’t say enough great things about Carly and her services. I would recommend her to every single bride out there!

    Perfect experience!!!

    Carly is absolutely amazing!! She made me look more beautiful than I could have imagined, but she was also so kind and professional! She was extremely patient when I had to reschedule my trial multiple times, and only wanted to please me as a client. She did an amazing job on the wedding day, and all of the girls raved about how good they looked when she was done with us!! Would give her 10 stars if I could!

    Wedding glam that felt 100% me!

    Carly is one of the most down-to-earth wedding vendors I’ve ever met and It was such a sincere pleasure working with her. I almost never have professional makeup done, and my own routine is very simple, so whenever I do get my makeup done it always feels a little foreign - not with Carly. I felt purely myself and purely beautiful. She created a beautiful, natural look for our engagement photos as a trial, and (because my wedding dress changed last minute) a completely different and amazingly glamourous look for the wedding day. It never felt heavy and it didn’t move, smudge or change even a little throughout the whole day. I felt so beautiful and it translated perfectly to photos. On the wedding day she was extremely punctual, worked very efficiently and quickly, and was in and out ahead of schedule. I would recommend Carly to anyone for professional makeup for any event - I’m already looking for another excuse to hire her!

    Wow, Cathlin, thank you so much for these incredibly kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed the experience as much as I did as it was so great getting to know you and work with you.

    Whenever you find that excuse to get glam again, I’m here!

    Wishing you and Michael all the happiness and love!

    She's a true professional

    I am so glad I found Carly. I can't say enough great things about her and the amazing job she did with makeup and hair for my wedding. She executed day-of hair and makeup for myself, nine bridesmaids and two moms - and made it look easy. She is a talented make-up and hair artist and really listens to what you want. She fixes problem areas with a breeze (for me it was acne spots and scars!). I have to say though, the most amazing thing about my experience with Carly is that on the day-of I was feeling a little nervous and her presence, calm demeanor, and overall confidence in her abilities made me feel completely at ease. She also rocked my flower crown placement.

    You will not regret hiring Carly.

    First of all - that photo of you in your dress is STUNNING! WOW!

    Thank you so much Marika for this kind review. I am so glad you were happy with the experience. I had so much fun being part of your day. The fur, the flower crown, the dress, the mountains - oh my goodness you looked like something written in fairytales. I hope your day was pure magic. Thanks again for trusting my team and I.
