Hi Karly, I just wanted to send you a big hug and thank you for all your hard work and for being a part of our special day. Karly you made the whole process so smooth and enjoyable. For someone who has no idea about hair or makeup you made the experience very enjoyable and relaxing. You came in organised and ready to get started even if my family wasn't, thanks for the patience. Thank you for your professionalism and caring nature that you showed me. We loved having you there as we got ready for my wedding day. Everyone looked amazing! I hope that you got to explore and enjoy the colours of Bright with your family. Thanks again for the last minute booking and all your help and work on the day! You are amazing!

Hi Karly, Thank you so much for checking in, I had a wonderful elopement! Everyone has commented how great the make up and hair looked and you were so great to work with on the day. I’ll make sure to pass along your information to my friends so they know who to call if they should ever need anything.

Professional Makeup & Hair Artist - Karly Drever  

Thanks Beth, You really looked gorgeous! take care and enjoy your new sea change!

I am so pleased I found Karly in the few weeks leading up to my wedding! She was confident, reliable and knew exactly what I wanted. She made me look amazing on my wedding day and I received so many compliments on my make up. I even had my bridesmaids saying they will go to Karly for their next event. Karly is a bang on make up artist who knows what will work straight up and is patient and very open to listening what it is you want or how you like it and makes it happen for you! Tracy

Thank you Tracy, I remember you guys like it was only yesterday. You were all a hoot and it was my absolute pleasure!

Hey Karly, Just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our special day - we honestly couldn't have done it without you. Everything came together perfectly and we are so appreciative of the ease of working with you. You were amazing on the day with my strange fluffy hair and Elizabeth absolutely loved you for feeling like a big kid with her curly hair and make up. Much love, Ash & Sam

26 Feb 2022

Thank you so much Karly! You did an amazing job with all your hair and makeup for my wedding. We were all so happy! You were a delight at both the hens trial and on my wedding day. Your relaxed though professional manner really helped me keep my nerves in check! And i appreciated it (and needed it) probably more than I let on! Your a gem!

Karly was quick to respond to my initial enquiry. After my trial I secured my booking with Karly for my wedding day to do my bridesmaid, Jr bridesmaid, Mum & myself for our hair and make up. On the day, Karly was so lovely to agree to do my Mother & Sister in laws hair and make up last minuet. Everyone looked beautiful. I especially loved my bridesmaids hair, my natural make up and the wavy hair I wanted. (I also really appreciate Karly adding my hair extentions.) Thank you Karly for being apart of my wedding day. Louise

I felt like a princess on my wedding day. A beautiful, soft and natural look that held up to the heat. Will be back x

Karly was amazing to deal with especially over Covid and having to reschedule appointments she always made the time to make my special day the greatest day ever. I would highly recommend Karly again for my next big event and will be sure to recommend to friends and family.

I can't thank Karly enough for the incredible hair and make up she did for my wedding on 5 November 2021, and with only a few weeks notice. I thought she did a wonderful job of enhancing everyone’s natural beauty and making myself and my bridesmaids feel like fabulous versions of ourselves! My bridesmaids all commented that they liked that Karly adapted the makeup to what we each wanted and kept it natural. And she kept the environment fun and not stressful. Thank you again Karly! xoxo

Karly did hair and makeup for myself, bridesmaids and mums on our wedding day and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She did such a brilliant job and was incredibly efficient. Everyone was so pleased with how they looked. Karly is very skilled at working with your natural features and provides a perfect balance of guidance and advice while working to your brief. I’d give her six stars if I could!

Professional Makeup & Hair Artist - Karly Drever  

Aww thank you! You had me at six stars! Much appreciated.

Karly as always was wonderful on my big day. Our hair and make-up was perfect and stayed put all day. Wouldn't use anyone else for hair and make-up for future events.

29 Dec 2015

Karly is so talented and she did a fantastic job for us on our big day! She made us ladies look and feel a million dollars and we had all positive comments all day and afterwards from photos. So happy with how my hair and make-up turned out and lasted

26 Feb 2015

Donna and Paul 27th February 2015 Karly truly was a blessing from our first meeting. Extremely professional and yet i felt like i knew her personally, she really helped me feel at ease on the day. I truly could not have asked for anyone better. I would recommend Karly to any lady who wants to shine. Donna.
