Trial went wrong, no fix to it
Carly was very likeable in person. I showedSent on 05/03/2020
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.

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!Sent on 27/10/2019

I’m so glad you were happy with everything on the day and that you felt beautiful, because you looked stunning! It was such a joy working with you and your lovely family. Wishing you and your new husband all the best in your move and this next chapter of your lives!

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!Sent on 13/09/2019
Glam in Van - Carly Martin Makeup & Hair's reply:Wow, Shelby, thank you so much! It was such an honour getting to be part of your day.

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!Sent on 19/02/2020
Glam in Van - Carly Martin Makeup & Hair's reply: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.

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.Sent on 11/02/2019
