I had the pleasure of having Kelsey Gamso do my make-up for my wedding day and I could not have been happier. She did an amazing job! She is extremely talented, professional and very fun to work with. Kelsey is very responsive and always answered my calls/emails in a timely manner. I highly recommend doing the trial – I didn’t even have to think about my make-up on the day of because I already knew how wonderful it was going to come out. On the day of the wedding Kelsey arrived early and was ready to go before I was even done with my hair. I LOVED my make-up and so did everyone else as I received many, many compliments. Not only did she do a great job with my makeup, but her calm demeanor kept me calm as well. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Kelsey Gamso to future brides.

Kelsey’s calm demeanor rubbed off on me on my wedding day, which helped put me at ease. She is such a cool person and she felt more like a friend by the time we were done working together. She understood the exact look I was going for with my hair and makeup and I honestly don’t think anyone could have done a more exceptional job. I could not have been happier with my ‘wedding-day look’ and thanks to her, my pictures turned out fabulous! Kelsey is AMAZING at hair and makeup and I definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to look flawless and feel their most beautiful on their wedding day!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Kelsey and my experience! Kelsey did my hair and makeup on my wedding day and I looked gorgeous! She understood exactly what I wanted and made me feel so comfortable. My makeup was flawless and my husband still to this day mentions how beautiful I looked. I would have her do my hair and makeup every day if I could. She is so sweet and made me feel so special! I definitely recommend her!

Moving across the country less than a year before my wedding made the planning 10x more stressful since I didn’t know any vendors, including hair stylists, yet in Sarasota. One Saturday, I decided to go to a wedding show in the area to try to meet some. That is where I met Kelsey Gamso, who was there demonstrating makeup on all of the brides. After she did a quick sample on me, I knew instantly that I wanted her to be the one who was in charge of my hair & makeup for my wedding day. Considering I had literally just met her, that says a lot about the type of person she is & also how much talent she has. Before the wedding day, we met to go over ideas I had and create a game plan for the big day. Since I was getting married outside during the middle of the day in AUGUST, I was a little nervous about my hair and makeup staying in place. Kelsey quickly put my nerves at ease though by listening to my concerns and knowing just what to do. On the big day, she arrived on time at my ceremony location (BIG plus so I didn’t have to make a trip to the salon that morning!) and did an outstanding job on my hair & makeup. I didn’t even know she was sick that day until weeks later because she was so focused on making me look and feel beautiful on my special day. I am honestly so grateful to have randomly met Kelsey, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a hair or makeup stylist for their wedding! She definitely goes above and beyond for her clients!

As a bride, it is such a comfort to feel that the person you’re working with really cares about you LOVING your wedding day look. With Kelsey, it was clear that she wasn’t going to leave me until I felt that every part of my hair and makeup was exactly how I wanted it. Even before the wedding day Kelsey was so patient with me figuring out what my vision was for my wedding look. We did 2 trials to help me figure out exactly what I was going for…it took a while for me to figure that out, but Kelsey did not make me feel even the slightest bit crazy for changing my mind several times. She was very detail-oriented and took notes and pictures on what I liked/didn’t like to make sure we got it perfect on the big day. I felt so comfortable being honest with her which is extremely important in choosing wedding vendors. I would highly recommend working with Kelsey Gamso for your wedding day. She did an amazing job on my all of my ladies and myself on my wedding day. I truly did feel like the most beautiful bride in the world.

Kelsey Gamso, hairstylist and makeup artist, is fresh, hip and classy. She is talented and experienced beyond her years. On my wedding day, she made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world! My husband couldn’t take his eyes off of me. Kelsey, thank you for making my day so special and memorable.

Obviously 5 stars 🙂
I loved having Kelsey do my hair and makeup! She’s super sweet and hard working. My hair isn’t easy to work with but I described and showed her pics of how I wanted it and she was able to achieve the look I was going for. The curls lasted for the rest of the day and the makeup she used made my skin look and feel flawless. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone, she’s a joy to work with!

Where Do I begin! Kelsey is amazing. Being a Woman, we all have that fairy tale princess wedding playing through our mind from a young age and on the ‘Big Day’ we hope that we can look half as beautiful as the Princess we in-vision in our mind. Well honestly, Kelsey exceeded that. I remember the evening I called Kelsey. I was pacing back and forth while the phone rang hoping she would answer. After what seemed like an eternity of ringing, she answered and said “I would love to do your hair for your wedding.” Wahoo!! I immediately began pinning photos and had an array of styles I liked. When I met with Kelsey for my trial, I showed her tons of photos and she is seriously amazing—she was able to combine the MANY different styles I liked into the perfect up do. She was so patient and creative and you can see the passion for what she does pouring out of her. On the day of the wedding, she had perfected the up do even more (which I didn’t even think was possible) and I truly felt like the Princess I always dreamed I would be. I work in the Dental field and I have a photo of my wedding day in my room and I can honestly tell you that almost everyone that sees that photo comments on how great my hair looks!

Kelsey has been doing my hair for about four years. Through that time she has done my hair and make-up for many significant occasions including my wedding. In every instance Kelsey has done an excellent job portraying my vision. Not only is Kelsey exceptional at her craft, but she is also personable and reliable during such an exciting, yet stressful time. She even traveled from Florida to Ohio to do my make-up, and style my hair for both my rehearsal dinner and wedding. This allowed me to have her cut, color and do a complete trial run thru, of my vintage bridal look, a week prior to the wedding. I would recommend Kelsey for all your hair and beauty needs, whether it is for your big day or just a new look. Heck, I even drive over an hour for Kelsey to continue coloring and styling my hair.
