I studied makeup and hair at London College of Fashion and have been working as a freelance Makeup Artist since 2008. My work includes Editorial & Fashion, Film & Television Production, Commercials & Ad Campaigns, Celebrity Appearances and Music Videos.
I have also worked with many brides over the years to create their perfect wedding look. From all out glam to natural, I work with each client to create an individual look which is personal to them. Making a bride feel relaxed and confident on the morning of her wedding is a vital part of my job. Making clients look and feel absolutely gorgeous for their big special day is a wonderful thing to do and I love it!
Working on big weddings with assistants to personally styling individual brides, my organisation skills, time managment, attention to detail and creative vision will achieve gorgeous results!
Talented, confident & relaxed
"Kari did my makeup and my bridesmaids hair for my summer barn wedding. She is extremely talented and has a wonderful calm air about her that rubbed off on me - I felt so happy and relaxed for the whole day. I felt very confident in the makeup she did for me, and the girl's hair was perfect and beautiful. We had a trial the week before, and I loved it, and was amazed at her skill to get it exactly the same on the day! I'd recommend her to everyone!" Cassandra
I couldn't recommend boho belle makeup and hair enough!
"I wanted to look natural for my wedding day, the best version of myself, rather than looking too overdone. Kari was absolutely fantastic - both during the trial and on the morning of the wedding. An experienced professional, Kari also puts you at your ease with her friendly, sunny personality. She doesn't try to dictate any particular looks but instead listens to all of your ideas as well as making excellent suggestions of her own. She found a look that complimented the style of my dress and venue perfectly. The photos looked fantastic and my hair and make up lasted the whole day - even after the energetic dancing! I couldn't recommend boho belle makeup and hair enough!" Katherine
Perfect Hair and Make-up
I knew Kari was going to be great before I booked her as she had done the hair and make-up for a friend's wedding when I was a bridesmaid! I had loved her calm, friendly and professional manner and I knew how talented she was. All the girls loved her so it was a very easy decision and I was so chuffed when she was available to do my wedding. Kari was very good at making me feel special as the bride and my trial was a fab experience. Kari was very patient and tried lots of things as I had no idea how I wanted to have my hair. We got there in the end with the most perfect up do! Kari picked out the perfect shades for my make-up and gave me some great beauty tips for the run up to the big day. On the day Kari was great. She is a lovely person to have around and I trusted her totally. I was thrilled with how all my bridesmaids looked and I really think I looked my absolute best because of Kari. What more could a girl ask for on her big day?!" Amelia
Kari and Jenni were so wonderful, calm and relaxed and made my bridesmaids, mum and myself all look and feel beautiful. They did an amazing job. We all had such a fun time in the morning getting ready together, it was actually one of the highlights of the day and we all got such lovely comments. One thing I never had to worry about all day was my hair and make-up, it was natural and beautiful, just perfect. Jo
I am so pleased I found Kari through Boho Belle. She was brilliant, from the trial through to the day itself. She has a wonderful calming effect on you, really easy to talk to and makes you feel really relaxed on a big day! The hair and make up were perfect, she even managed to find time to do my mum's hair. She's great and I'm going to recommend her to everyone I know :-) Mille
Kari was amazing. She made me feel relaxed and comfortable throughout, and the hair and makeup that she created at my trial and again on the day were everything I'd hoped for and more. I felt incredible and I cannot recommend her enough! Sam
Exactly what I asked for
Kari and Jenni were absolutely fantastic - at the trial Kari pinpointed exactly what we wanted and recreated this on the day. We had a bit of a hiccup where my florist turned up with branches, a pot of flowers and a floral hairpiece instead of a completed floral crown, but Kari dealt with it amazingly, staying calm and making a wonderful creation that looked fabulous. She gave me the whole look I was going for, and I'll be booking her for my sister's wedding anniversary next year, and any other event I can find an excuse for! I really am so glad I found them and would recommend them to everyone. Anna
A fantastic start to the day!
I was very nervous about my hair and makeup as I am very particular about those kinds of things, but Kari was very professional, so easy to talk to and nothing was too much trouble for her. I was so incredibly pleased with my final look; she did an amazing job and made everything look so easy- which it is not. Thanks Kari! Helen
I had the pleasure of booking Kari for my wedding hair and makeup and I cannot recommend her enough! I had my trial in February at her home in NW London. She made me feel relaxed and comfortable and listened carefully to my thoughts and vision for my bridal look. Following the trial, I decided I may want to do something slightly different for my hair on the actual day, and when I contacted her about this, she was incredibly flexible and understanding and completely delivered on the day! She is really easy to communicate with and had no problem when I asked her to arrive earlier than the time we had originally agreed on. My wedding was on 28 March 2015, and Kari worked quickly and efficiently whilst creating a relaxed and positive environment. My makeup was perfect. Kari channeled the vintage theme of the day wonderfully without making me look like I was in costume makeup! I still felt like myself, just the best version of myself, which is really important. My hair was also to die for and she was incredibly helpful from day one regarding this tricky deco inspired tiara I purchased. Kari created wonderful vintage-inspired curls and successfully secured my tiara, making me feel like an absolute princess. Kari even took the time to give me tips on how to keep my makeup flawless for the reception. Licking the champagne flute before drinking to avoid ruining my lip colour is definitely a tip I will remember for the rest of my life! In addition to being an incredible artist and consummate professional, Kari is just a really cool person and genuinely cares about the happiness and comfort of her clients! 5 Stars, 10/10, just Brilliant!

Kari is a complete professional and did an amazing job with my hair and make up. I went to see her twice to make sure I was happy before the wedding. She recommended something different from what I'd usually do but kept to the brief of looking like a better version of myself. She is friendly and genuinely wants to do a great job for you, like having one of your best friend do your make up! I'm very happy I chose her and would recommend her to anyone. She is also very reasonably priced for London :) Thanks Kari. Janine
Excellent Hair and Make-Up
I went to see Kari for a hair and make-up trail; I am getting married in France and wanted to experiment with different styles and make-up colour. Kari did an amazing job and tried numerous different styles and colour; she would not let me leave without making sure I was happy with what I had picked. She did everything I asked and made some really good suggestions about what would suit me which I really appreciated. I highly recommend her! Laura
