So sweet and I looked amazing!Feb 9, 2016Verified
Kara and her team are amazing! They made the entire process comfortable, easy, and fun. I have never felt so beautiful and my pics came out perfect. I highly recommend her company.Oct 7, 2015
As a professional headshot and beauty photographer, I've been using Best Face Forward for over a year now and couldn't be happier. Kara is super responsive, friendly, and professional as is her team of hair and makeup artists. My clients are always thrilled with how they look and I'm thrilled because their hair and makeup styling significantly cuts down on my retouching time.Oct 6, 2015
I needed hair and make up done for some new professional head shots and contacted Best Face Forward at the last minute. Not only did they quickly fit me in but were fantastic to work with. I felt so pretty and pampered going into the photo shoot. Next time you need professional hair and make up done contact them first.Oct 6, 2015
Giannina and Tria came to my room at the Mayflower Hotel in D.C. on 9-26-2015 to get me ready for the Gala to be held later that evening. They were on time friendly and professional. I was pleased with the results when I looked in the mirror. We had fun visiting while they were working. I will definitely call Best Face Forward-Skin, Makeup & Hair Artists if I am in the area and highly recommend them to anyone wanting to be pampered and looking their best! This is the second time I have made the call! Love this service!Oct 2, 2015

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes- we train our team regularly, encourage continuing education, and we all read business books to ensure we provide the most professional team possible.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My mother has been a trainer in the beauty industry for over 34 years. I followed along, learning through the years, and when I realized it was a true interest of mine, I sought more education. After planning my wedding, my photographer was so impressed with the results of our makeup and hair, he prompted me to put together the team I had a hard time finding to meet all of our wedding day needs.
