Reviews on Kathy Aragon/ Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist (as seen on LinkedIn)

“For 19 years now I've been shooting Advertising & Editorial imagery, in that time I've worked with a LOT of H+M/U Artists; Kathy is one of the very few that I'd recommend without ANY hesitation. She's collaborative, VERY hard working, considerate, VERY detail oriented and of course, accomplished. In a profession filled with drama, and clashing egos she leaves hers at home, that alone is priceless. When the call time is 'pre-dawn', the location is in the middle of 'BFN', and the talent may be 'testy' (at best) you want to surround yourself with collaborative team members, who not only 'have your back' but also make the process fun. Kathy is ALL of that, and more. And if you're shooting at 11 AM, inside an A/C studio-well . . . she's great there too. And when the shoot is over, she's surprised me more than once when I've opened my mail and found a gracious & kind 'thank you note'; something that's far too uncommon these days. When your image depends on your images, you want to be sure you have every angle on a shoot covered. Having Kathy by my side on a shoot helps put any concerns I have about H+MU at rest. Hire her, she's worth it.”

“I have know Kathy and her work for few years now and saw her grow into amazing artist. Her versatility,talent, hard work, ambition and determination amazes me and makes me very proud of her.”
Viktorija Bowers, makeup artist, NY

“I have worked with Kathy on a number of shoots as well. I never have to watch her. She is skilled and talented and knows what the client wants. I never have to watch her do anything. She is reliable, dependable, and good at what she does. I always refer her work and asked her if I need another artist on board with me.”
Heather Fox, Freelance Makeup Artist, Chicago

“I have worked with Kathy on several occasions and her results are fantastic. I enjoy working with her because of her humble approach and I almost want to keep her to myself for every project that I work on but I know that is impossible. I highly recommend Kathy's artistry and I have to say also that she is a fabulous hair stylist as well. I remember that I was pleasantly surprised at what she was able to do to a models hair on more than one occasion since I am so used to working with teams that contained a separate hair and makeup artist. She is EXCELLENT at what she does.”
Opé M, Owner,

“Kathy has helped many brides look their best on their wedding day. She doesn't have just one style, she listens to the bride and then does a wonderful job achieving the desired look. She is professional, on-time and has great skill in making women beautiful!”
