"Makenna doesn't just do your hair and make up for a pageant. Through her hair and make up artistry, Makenna chooses the best styles and looks that enhance your natural AND inner beauty, making you feel like the queen you are. She is also the biggest cheerleader for her clients and truly loves getting to know each of them on an individual basis. She is the only person I will ever want prepping me for pageants." - Brittany V.


​​"WOW - I just can't say enough about the amazing lady, Makenna, and her team at MK Bridal Artistry. I had had makeup and hair before, but not professional. SHE is the ultimate in professionalism while making the week at Mrs. United States just amazing. I have never looked nor felt as beautiful as I did that week - enough so that I actually combated crippling anxiety and was able to relax and have fun - even won Mrs. Congeniality. Looking and FEELING amazing helped me to win that coveted award. I hope that I never go to a pageant again without her doing my hair and makeup." - Kevi B.


"Absolute best!! Makenna repeatedly helps my daughter feel her absolute best during all phases of competition!

Highly, highly recommend!!" - Jen R.


​"My experience with MK makeup has always been flawless. Makenna’s team is some of the nicest most welcoming people I’ve met. Every time she’s done my hair and makeup I get stopped everywhere I go and people ask who did it and I gladly say Makenna Barnes. There’s no one I trust more to make me pageant ready. She slays the game every time." - Summer W.


​"Makenna seriously works wonders! She can take any face and hair on a girl and make them look flawless! She creates a personal relationship with her clients! I am always so happy with my hair and makeup when makenna does it even when I have her do 5 hair changes! I highly recommend working with her!" - Tannah M.


"Makenna amazes me when I see how organized she is with a room full if girls. She is aware of who needs makeup next, who's hair still needs to be touched up and on top of that has each girl walking out looking fabulous. Her and her staff are kind and sweet and are a pleasure to work with. She is also aware of the pageant system expectations for hair and makeup. - Dianne S.
