Kiya knocks hair and makeup out of the park!!! I got a glimpse of her darling personality and how talented she is during the bridal trial. She did hair and makeup for myself and a handful of family members and all looked gorgeous for the celebration. She had fantastic communication leading up to wedding day and asked for inspo pics for all. I am delighted that she was part of our day! She’s priceless and crazy talented- so grateful to have gotten to know her.

You have to hire her !! From the beginning I knew KK weddings was different because how quick the responded and how professional Dakiyah was. She has everything you needed to make a decision and her prices are extremely fair and honestly she could charge more for how amazing it was. She followed up with me leading up to the wedding and showed up with her team ready to go. I had a bridal park of 9 women and myself her and and the team worked fast but never lacking in detail. My friends would get their makeup done and I would stare at them because of how amazing they looked ! They all have an individual look that worked with their face but had the same feel all around. When it was my turn I was nervous because I hadn’t done a trial run of hair and make up. She reassured me it be amazing and when you’re with her you feel that she is truly going to take care of you. She never once rushed me as the bride or moved too fast. Legit artist. Let me tell you….when I saw my face…I couldn’t not stop smiling. I mean I was glowing !!! I normally don’t wear a lot of make up but I was stunning!!! She understood my face shape and gave me a look that enhanced my beauty! She took pics and made fun videos along the way and my whole bridal party loved her and her team! My biggest fear was that I wouldn’t feel pretty on my wedding day. But I was called an angel and breathtaking all night. My friends all felt confident and my mother in law was glowing !!! Ugh. I can’t say enough. You have to hire her if you want to feel your absolute best with make up and hair !! Thank you again! I’ll never forget it!

Dakiyah is wonderful!! I don’t normally wear makeup and didn’t have any vision/inspo for what I wanted for my bridal look but regardless she worked magic and pulled out a beautiful look for me!! I got sooo many complements and the makeup lasted easily all day.
Thank you Talia! You’re an angel and can’t wait to see you on wedding day!

I didn’t get a chance to work with her. However, I appreciated her taking the time to answer by questions and walking me through her process. She was extremely professional, thorough and responded timely to all of my emails. Thank you.

Dakiyah did my makeup for my wedding over the summer. Not only did she finish 5 full faces in just a few hours right after having a baby, she made everyone laugh and smile during the process. Her work was absolutely flawless! She helped me choose my perfect “soft glam” wedding day look months in advance and helped me feel the most beautiful I’ve ever looked in my entire life. She used high quality products that were lightweight and natural feeling and her inventory fit vastly different skin tones. I would HIGHLY recommend to Dakiyah to absolutely anyone, and firmly believe she is the best of the best. Thank you for helping to make our special day perfect, Dakiyah!
