Ivanov Artistry Reviews on The Knot

Kat is the sweetest!! I honestly believe we were destined to meet, my spirit animal for sure! She understood that I was going for a natural look, really listened to all I had to say, and made me feel like the most beautiful bride ever. Kat was great at communicating, super kind, on time and just one of those individuals you meet and want nothing the best for them. I'm beyond happy and grateful for her and her team. Mostly importantly, for all my future brides out there!! Check her out - SHE'S GREAT!

-Jessica Chicas

Let's start with, Kat is an amazing person - beautiful inside and out! Shes so friendly and accomodating. Kat did my hair and makeup for my wedding and helped me craft the perfect hair style when I donated my hair.

— Lindsey Nicasio

Kat is great at following her instinct as far as what looks best while keeping to what the client wants. She far exceeded my expectations and even what I envisioned the end result to be. I’ll never trust anyone else with my hair again!

— Rebekah Marsh

Kat has the rare gift of natural talent combined with really listening to her clients’ needs and desires. She works with great integrity, using the best products and truly investing in long-term care. She’s the best!

Kat did my hair and makeup for my wedding and was perfect in every way. She became my hair stylist two years ago and I instantly knew I'd never use anyone else. She just gets it. She takes the time to get to know you so she can give you exactly what you asked for and if you don't know then she'll point you in the right direction. She truly cares about fulfilling your wishes. My hair was perfect and my makeup was flawless - She nailed it. She was also a ton of fun throughout the entire process and my bridesmaids enjoyed their time being pampered and were ecstatic with the results. She's the best! I would highly recommend her.

I’ve been seeing Katherine for my regular hair care for a couple of years now. When I got engaged it was a no brainer to hire her to do my hair styling and make-up for the wedding. Her work is just above and beyond the expectations. I decided to go with false eyelashes for my wedding make-up and she made it look so natural and seamless. I’ve had my hair and make-up done by others and it just doesn’t compare to the professionalism you get when you go through Ivanov artistry. I’d give a million stars if I could. She has a lifetime customer in me.

-Kathryn Miller

I booked Ivanov Artistry for hair and airbrush makeup for my bridesmaids and I. She made us feel so beautiful on my wedding day!! My bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup, Kat was so great at creating looks they both loved. My hair stayed in place he whole night and my makeup was flawless. She was so sweet and I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

-danielle gauvey

Kat is amazing! She did my hair and makeup for both my bridal shoot and my wedding. She helped me create the exact look I was going for both times. I felt like a true bride with how perfect my makeup was. Kat and her assistant were super friendly to myself and all of my bridesmaids. I loved having them be there and help for my special day and I HIGHLY recommend her to do anyone's hair and makeup. I couldn't be happier on how my hair and makeup turned out!!

-Kelly Dwyer

Kat is the only person who has looked at my hair and could tell it would turn red easily. May not seem like a big deal but I have been ignored so many times about this fact and ended up with a color I didn’t like. I have loved every cut and color that she has done and I will not let anyone else touch my hair!!

— Tiffany Lewis

You cannot put a price on feeling like the best version of yourself on your wedding day - and Kat Ivanov did that for me, not only with her artistic touch but through her calm and confident demeanor. Taking my vision, my dress, and my venue/theme into consideration, she created a look that was truly reflective of the event and how I felt celebrating it. She thoughtfully applied my feedback and weaved in her expert knowledge to achieve the very best outcome for both my hair and makeup. I LOVE how I looked on my wedding day - and Ivanov Artistry was a huge part of making that happen. 

— Halie Jeanes


Kat really has a dedication and a love for what she does. Not only that, but she cares about the client and will really go the extra mile to make sure you are fully satisfied with her work. She is creative, talented and I would highly recommended her to anyone seeking hair or makeup.

— Kelly Vincent

There are not enough good things I can say about Kat and Ivanov Artistry. They traveled to Austin to do all the hair and makeup for my bridal party and we could not have been more pleased! Not having to worry about doing our own hair and makeup was such a blessing and gave me time to really sit back and enjoy the most important day of my life with my girls. Kat took exactly my vision for what I was wanting and made it happen. They listened to our wants and needs and made us all feel so beautiful. So much fun, so easy to work with, professional, courteous, prompt, I was blown away. Thank you Kat for being a part of this special day, I wouldn’t have changed a single thing!

-JoAnne Fife

I would 100% would recommend Ivanov Artistry. Very professional and also personable. Kat responded very positively to feedback and listened when I asked for certain things or for changes to be made. Definitely knew how to make me feel comfortable while also looking my best—and she worked very well with a ton of hair and not much idea of how I wanted my makeup to look. On time and prepared. I would recommend Ivanov Artistry wholeheartedly to anyone wanting to shine.

-Leia Johnson

Kat was a wonderful resource for my wedding. She helped me pick a hair style design based on my wants and needs that was extremely flattering and everybody complimented me on. As well, she went above and beyond in finding products that would be suitable for my extra super sensitive skin and scalp. Both she and her assistant were efficient and professional on site for the ceremony. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

-Ruby Surls

Kat did my wedding last fall and we cannot say enough good things about her and her team. From the moment I booked her for me and my bridesmaids she took care of us. She took the pictures I showed her and created a look that was everything I wanted and made it my own. Her team is very talented and everyone was so happy with their makeup. My wedding day was so calm and effortless and I really believe that has so much to do with the vendors who are a part of it. Thank you, Ivanov Artistry!

-Elizabeth Jenson

Kat did a great job on my daughters wedding. Maggie and her bridesmaids got their hair done and make-up. I also got my make-up and hair done by Kat. Kat did Maggie's hair and make-up practice round for engagment pictures. I really loved Maggie's make-up she had done, she looked natural and her make-up looked so great for pictures, and of course Maggie and bridesmaids looked beautiful the day of the wedding. I had so many people comment on my hair and make-up the day of the wedding. My make-up stayed on all day and night long. Thank you Kat. A very talented artist!

-Tina Roher

Start to finish, Kat was an absolute doll to work with. She communicated with us so well throughout the whole process (we needed a lot of hand-holding as it was the first wedding in the family)! She handled last minute changes we threw her way like a champ! Kat and her team made it as stress-free for our bridal group as possible, with warm conversations to boot! We couldn't be happier that we found Ivanov Artistry and Kat.

-Yara Ashrawi

Kat did my sister's wedding over the summer, so when I got engaged it was a no brainer to go with them again. Her team was prompt, prepared, and so nice and friendly. They were very professional, but down to earth and felt like old friends. My hair looked amazing and stayed put the whole night and my makeup was seriously the best I've ever seen myself. Very natural but accentuated all the right features. I would recommend them to anyone.

-Jessica Fitzgerald

Professional, talented, prompt, just a few of many good things I can say about Ivanov Artistry. Kat and her team really care and love what they do. Everyone was so friendly and made our party look amazing. I felt so beautiful and calm on my wedding day, thank you!

-Heather Wilcox

Kat is so personable and knows just how to make you feel like the best version of yourself on your special day! Her talent is truly amazing!

-Meghan Ripkowski

I can’t say enough about Kat. I found out after the wedding she’s friends with a good friend and that made it so much better. After my trial we made a few tweaks and Kat remembered everything we talked about. My make up lasted all day in the Houston August sun and not a hair was out of place.
