They Say What?

Thank you Kelly for exceeding all of our expectations!

Where to begin? I contacted Kelly for a quote a couple of months before my big day and it only took one email and a look at the work that she had done for me to book her. Kelly is such a vibrant human being who makes you feel comfortable whilst she is working her hair & make-up magic. She was always professional, quick to respond and ready to assist with all of my requests. I can recommend her to any bride-to-be! The make-up & hair looked amazing in person and on our photographs. Thank you Kelly for exceeding all of our expectations!

I have loved every job she has styled on for us.

This is to confirm that Kelly Jean has been, and still is, a very valuable contributing hair and makeup artist on many of our fashion editorials. Kelly’s creative initiative and ability to work effortlessly to a brief, coupled with her ability to work well under pressure, will ensure that she will be a solid and reliable artist in this unforgiving industry. I have loved every job she has styled on for us.

Kelly Jean is a talented hair and make-up artist who is a pleasure to have on set

I had the pleasure of working with Kelly Jean on our Fab.com commercial that we shot in April 2013. Kelly Jean is a talented hair and make-up artist who is a pleasure to have on set. I was impressed with her abilities and found her attitude to be both professional and courteous. She has a friendly and down-to-earth demeanor that allows her to work cohesively with any team. I would happily recommend her!

If i had to do it all over again, I book Kelly a thousand times over.

Kelly Gilbert……worker of magic and master of face paint ;) This lady is absolutely incredible! A friend of mine recommended I contact Kelly to do my hair and make up for one of the most important days of my life……my wedding. Boy am I glad that I took her advise. Kelly is one of the most wonderful, kind and funny ladies I have yet to meet….and the KILLS at doing make up! During the trial period she happily put together about 4-5 different looks until we settles on THE ONE. I felt incredible. The big day arrived and Kelly arrived early in the morning to kick off the make up and champagne pre-wedding celebrations. She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Not only did she do my make up……but she did my mom, my mom-in-law and my FIVE bridesmaids :) They are looked breath taking. I looked in the mirror and I knew I had picked a magic maker when i booked Kelly BUT the true test would come when I got to the top of the aisle ready to meet my soon-to-husband. So it began……Tears flowed (happy of course) and the make up did not move an inch!!! There was no ugly crying at my wedding. hee hee. I felt like a princess the whole night. If i had to do it all over again, I book Kelly a thousand times over. Photographs are forever……book Kelly Gilbert ;)

I felt the prettiest I ever have!

Kelly and her team were the BEST on my wedding day! We had fun. We looked beautiful. We took selfies. Most of all – I felt the prettiest I ever have!

Kaylee McHugh bride

I felt so beautiful!

I couldn’t have asked for a better hair and make-up stylist for my wedding! Kelly-Jean is friendly, professional and above all, incredibly talented. I felt I was in safe hands at all times and more than that I knew that I could talk to her honestly and openly about what I liked and didn’t like without feeling awkward. Kelly-Jean really listened to what I wanted and the end result far exceeded my expectations. I felt so beautiful on the day.
