Carl Ray Makeup Artist: what do users think?


Christina Dudley: Carl is an absolute joy to work with and I was thrilled to have him apply makeup for my wedding rehearsal dinner and welcome party. Not only is he a very talented artist, but he also is lovely, warm, and detailed. I didn't give him really any detail about how I wanted to look, but somehow he was able to work his magic and totally exceed my expectations. I highly recommend Carl for anyone with any skin tone. He will knock it out of the park!

Lauren Boyer: Carl is the BEST! He did makeup for my May 2022 wedding in DC and everyone looked amazing. It was a little humid with on and off drizzling but we looked flawless all night — even after hours of sweaty dancing. He did such a great job enhancing everyone’s natural features so we all looked like the best versions of ourselves - and not overdone. I loved the way it turned out in photos. I can’t say enough good things … hiring Carl was one of the best decisions for my wedding day!

Amanda C: Carl is an absolute magician when it comes to makeup. He knows exactly how to apply makeup so that your natural features are highlighted without looking unrecognizable which is exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. I pride myself on being pretty good at doing my own makeup and I still cannot get myself to look as good as I did when carl did my makeup for my rehearsal dinner and wedding. He is such a joy to work with as well and was a great presence to have around the wedding suite on the day of. He made my bridesmaids + MOB + MOG look so good. I really wanted my wedding party to look like we belonged on the cover of vogue instead of a wedding magazine and he delivered. Everyone looked amazing and Carl listened to what everyone wanted. If you don't book Carl Ray, then what are you doing??

Katie DePaola: I had heard about Carl from a friend. She told me he was *THE* makeup artist to work with in the DC area, but I had no idea if he would be available or within our budget. Our wedding planners reached out and not only was Carl available, he could totally work with our budget + needs. He did makeup for me, my mom and my sister in law (MOH) on my wedding day and we were all SO HAPPY. I LOVED my makeup and am so happy when I look at all my photos. I have very sensitive skin and eyes, but I told Carl and he said there's nothing he can't handle. He was right! I've worked with many makeup artists for my job, but Carl is by far the best. Professional. Creative. Fast. And FUN! Thank you Carl! You made my wedding makeup dreams come true! Service: Eyelash enhancements

Stacy Samet: Carl Ray is the absolute best! He has done my makeup for all the big events in my life. I started with Carl for my daughters Bat Mitzvah 20 years ago! He and his assistant did my daughters entire wedding party in 2019, my daughters rehearsal dinner and shower and most recently he did our family for my son's engagement party. Young or old he knows how to make you look your best. Natural and beautiful! He is excellent and couldn't be nicer! Service: Eyelash enhancements

Chelsea Finn: Not only was Carl extremely professional, responsive and incredible at his job he as is also such a delightful person that integrated himself so well into such a special weekend with me and my closest loved ones. Carl did our makeup for three events throughout our wedding weekend and each look was distinct and specially curated in tandem with my hair stylist and taking into consideration my outfits and "vibe" I was going for. Man did he deliver! Each look was absolutely flawless, leaving me, my mom and my girls speechless looking like movie stars and feeling so beautiful. Not only was I so impressed with his work on the day of, leading up to the wedding he was extremely responsive via email and took the time to work with me on selecting lipstick colors/brand and sharing photos of looks to work off of. For the wedding day, I told him that I just wanted to look like the best version of myself and that is exactly how I looked and felt. All of my bridesmaids looked fresh faced and beautiful, with each of their makeup perfectly tailored to their individual looks. I couldn't recommend Carl more. I hope in the future I have more milestone and special events I can hire him for, I truly have never felt so beautiful inside and out.

Andrea: Carl Ray is just the best of the best! After having him at my sister’s wedding a decade ago, my family and I were so happy we could book Carl for my wedding. He is so talented at bringing out everyone’s natural beauty and making them feel gorgeous! I had complete trust in him on my wedding day. He is also a joy to be around! I hope to have the privilege to work with him again!

Taylor McCarty Hoover: I searched endlessly for a makeup artist for my wedding for myself and my bridesmaids and knew I struck gold when I stumbled upon Carl. His work speaks for itself, but I took so much pleasure in seeing all of my girls be genuinely excited about how they looked! His calming presence is exactly what a bride wants the morning of a wedding. I felt super glam and will absolutely hire him again for events. Considering Carl's clientele, I thought his prices were very reasonable. Such a treat, and worth every penny.

Sabra Horne: Carl Ray is an exceptional professional and very talented artist who also happens to be a joy to work with. His precision and detail are exceptional and he has a wonderful way in teaching you as he goes. He is also a warm person with a great personality and is always a joy to be around- exactly the kind of person you trust to work closely with, Service: Private lessons

Nicole Conner: I was absolutely delighted not only with Carl Ray's work on myself and several family members for my wedding, but also in the pleasure to work with him. I wanted old Hollywood glamour and we iterated through a few of my inspiration photos and he quickly distilled exactly what I was interested in. We tracked how it stayed after the trial session and implemented tweaks on the main day. He is calm and confident in his work which is very relaxing while you're sitting in the chair. Everyone's makeup stayed where it was supposed to and reflected what they had asked for. I only hope that I can find more reasons to work him because it was such a treat for a makeup lover like myself. He also was a savior in helping me find a hair stylist as well. Hiring him was one of our best decisions for the wedding.

Makeup by Ana B: what do users think?


Danielle Johnson: I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the hairstyling services Lexi provided for my wedding. She understood exactly what I was looking for and did it perfectly, and it was amazing having her on site to keep touching my hair up as the day went on. She also did an incredible job with my mom and my bridesmaids even though everyone asked for completely different styles. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and it was so much fun having her by my side throughout the day. I would recommend her to any bride and can’t wait to find another excuse to work with her in the future. Service: Bridal hair

rachel robertello: I used MAB for my engagement photos and wedding day and they were so fun to work with! Their stylists were so kind and considerate, working with each member of the bridal party to make sure they were comfortable, including the 2 young flower girls. I could not have been happier with how everyone looked all dolled up! MAB was so easy to work with and were accommodating with any last minute changes. I am so grateful they were there to help make my wedding day perfect and enjoyable!

Zaynab Malik: I hired Hair & Makeup by Ana B for my engagement shoot and my wedding and I absolutely loved working with them. One of the reasons I selected MAB for my wedding day styling is because I noticed that they have a lot of experience with South Asian weddings. It was important to me that they could work with my wedding colors, dress, and skin tone and they really delivered! For my sunrise engagement shoot, Stefani and Tanya came super early to my apartment to do my hair and makeup. They were upbeat even though it was crazy early and did a fantastic job. I was excited to have the chance to work with them before the wedding because we could all get to know each other, and it helped me figure out my exact look for the wedding. For the wedding, Stefani, Tania, and Rocio styled my wedding party and me. I couldn’t have been happier with the service – the team worked quickly and efficiently, were friendly and fun, and made all of us look and feel beautiful. On top of all that, when we accidentally overpaid, the MAB team was kind and super professional and quickly refunded us for the overpayment, which goes to show what an honest and wonderfully run business this is! I highly, highly recommend this team if you ever need professional hair and makeup done. Service: Wedding hair & make-up

Lauren Rivera: Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, QualityI used MAB for my rehearsal dinner and wedding hair and makeup! I had such a great experience with Jasmine, Jessica and Tanya. They were punctual, friendly, listened to what everyone wanted and easy to work with! I was so happy with mine and my bridesmaids hair and makeup!Service: Wedding hair & make-up

Samantha Donlon: My artists for my wedding day were Mindy (hair) and Bianca (makeup), and I couldn't be happier with them! They both were lovely, kind, professional and made me feel so beautiful on my special day. They worked with me and my bridesmaids, listened to our feedback, and happily made adjustments until everyone was thrilled with their final look. I loved my trial too, which was great to get to meet the ladies beforehand. The staff at MAB is very friendly, responsive and easy to work with. A great price and a favorite business among me and many fellow Virginia brides. Cannot recommend them enough!!! Services: Wedding hair & make-up , Hairstyling , Bridal hair
Response: Thank you for the exceptionally kind review! We appreciate your trust in us! 💓

Carrington Beasley: Positive: Professionalism, QualityI was so pleased with how everyone’s makeup turned out! It was amazing working with Suz and put me at ease because I knew everyone would look great! I received my photos back earlier this week and have attached a few of my favorites!Service: Makeup services

Jessica Nguyen: I loved our day and I LOVED Maria. We worked together for my engagement pictures and I knew I’d be in amazing hands for the wedding. She is so easy to work with and so so sweet. The day was so seamless with her and all the girls loved her so much as well. I got so many compliments on how beautiful I looked and it was all thanks to her. PERFECTION. Services: Wedding hair & make-up , Hair extensions , Makeup services , Hairstyling , Updo , Eyelash enhancements , Bridal hair

julie huang: Esme got me ready for a big gala at the Kennedy Center and worked with me to make sure I had the look I wanted. I loved her creativity, expertise, and willingness to go big with the drama I wanted. Couldn’t be happier with the experience and wish I had more occasions coming up so I could have the excuse of getting glammed up again. Thank you Esme and MAB :) Services: Wedding hair & make-up , Makeup services , Hairstyling , Updo

Maggie Congdon: Hala and Lexi were phenomenal - very professional, diligent and took the necessary precautions for my small COVID wedding in 2020. They did a great job and I felt beautiful. I was so grateful that they were still willing come given the circumstances and it only made me that much more excited to work with them again in 2021 for our larger wedding. Scheduling was also very easy and they were always very responsive. I didn’t have all my girls for the small 2020 wedding and they had no problem waiving the minimum payment to accommodate the circumstances. Highly recommended! Services: Wedding hair & make-up , Makeup services , Hairstyling , Eyelash enhancements , Bridal hair

Rachel & Matt Garlipp: MAB was a dream to work with on my wedding day! Uzma did my trial and day-of hair. She helped finalize the style I wanted based off of inspiration pics, found extensions that matched my hair color, and executed everyone's hair perfectly on the big day. She provided instructions for how to prep our hair and answered all of our questions. MAB's admin team was also great to work with and confirmed all necessary details, including the day-of hair schedule for the bridal party. All of my bridesmaids and MOB/MOG had their hair done, and everyone looked great! Services: Hair extensions , Hairstyling , Bridal hair

MAC Cosmetics: what do users think?


Nicole DiAntonio: I LOVE visiting this MAC Makeup Union Station not only for the makeup, but for the people! I first met Carla when she helped me pick out makeup for my job. She had the best advice. Now, anytime I have a promo shoot, I always call Carla to see if she is available to do a professional makeover! When I had my wedding reception this summer, she traveled to Annapolis to do my makeup, along with my mom, mother-in-law and sister-in-law. She is the best! Highly recommend.

Maria D. Villars: The girls there are ALWAYS so helpful. I’ve made a few new friends at this MAC store. Excellent customer service all around! They are as fabulous - as your MAC brand. Real TALK. Thank YOU ladies! See you soon!

Danielle Scott: I’ve came to this location three times before. The first time I was 6 months pregnant (2014) I don’t remember the make up artist name. And the last two times was recently. Each visit was pleasant. This review is for my recent visit 3/22/22 My make up artist name was Tashae she was very professional, knowledgeable and took her time when applying my make up, gave me a variety of products to try out that worked for me. She answered all my questions that I had and also gave me makeup recommendations. On top of regular skin care tips because you have to take care of your skin underneath the foundation. I wanted a more of a natural look i was celebrating my 30th birthday and she went above and beyond to assist me which made my day even more special. And I received so many complements on my look. 😍The store was clean and stocked with products. I was in and out in a timely manner. Will definitely be back!!! Thank you so much Tashae you are amazing.

Asia Cozart: Came in for last minute for Mac up for the Bridgerton experience and Ronnie was amazing! I had such a great experience I would definitely come back my next time In DC!

Zipporah Miller: The manager is awesome. She treated every customer as though they were the only ones in the store. She honors her staff and I watched how she treated them with respect. Her staff is as valuable to her as the customers. This made for a pleasant experience in her store. My makeover was dynamite. I received compliments all night. Dana, you rock. Keep up the good work.

LaKisha Addison-Fields: Poor service continues at UNION STATION MAC STORE. Like I barely walk in the store and was approached by the sale girl.. “um, I just want u to know we have a no touch policy” (smacks lips). “Ooh, and hello can I help u find something”. Like, little young lady “for real”? “ No I’m good, I’ll go to Sephora”.

Deanne Marino: Staff was super helpful getting 50's makeup for my I Love Lucy costume. Turned out great!

Sloane Salkey: Most helpful and kind Mac store I've been in. I was greeted and asked if I needed help within a short time of entering, even while everyone was busy. At other locations - I walk in, and some employees act like they don't see me, even when not helping other customers. Really appreciated the help I got. They were patient and got me all the samples I wanted and gave very informed explanations about the products I was choosing between. Will be coming back here instead of pentagon city now.

Michele L Watley: I walked in rushed and frazzled, as I was late for a major event with a number of members of congress and dignitaries. I needed a look that was clean and sophisticated without being boring. Alex did a complete makeover in less than 30 minutes! Smokey eye, lashes, contour, foundation, eye brows, EVERYTHING!!! She is truly gifted and her personality is magnetic. I had so many compliments about my makeup from strangers and event attendees alike that night. She even stayed late to get me ready for my big event. She shared tips and techniques that I could use when doing my own makeup. Alex is now my makeup artist when I come to DC and I couldn't be any happier!

Venessa Morris: Good customer service by the two ladies who were on the floor.My assistant who was the shorter of the two with blonde hair was g re at and I also observed the other attendant anthecfloorvwho was also very professional

Bennett Career Institute: what do users think?


DonDiva Davis: They've allowed me to establish a career in this Industry for the past 18 years. As a 2x Valedictorian I would highly recommend Bennett to anyone in pursuit of an awesome and amazing career jump start into the Beauty & Barbering Industry!

natalie: I always love going here. The students and staff are pleasant, I really enjoy the way they compliment one another,that can be so important to a person to hear that someone liked what they did or what they are doing. A compliment can go a long way.

R.L. D: This place apparently passes off your social and any other information that you give the to a third party. I moved from another state and had to get my id mailed to the new state that I moved to and I has a Maryland address. They said 5 different reasons that why my identification was no good and apparent it was. The “third” party service that they use without permission because I never signed any paperwork giving the Bennett career institute permission to send my sensitive information to a party of people that has nothing to do with this establishment. I pray that there is no fraud on my credit and social. I do not know who this processor is and nor will “doctor” Bonita branch, nor will the head of administrations at this office provide me with who these people are. This school is extremely fishy and if you value your personal information don’t apply or go to this school.

Deborah Simms: Excellent service and stylist are courtesy to customers concerns for satisfactory appearances .

Wendy W: I have been coming here for years; the students change and so have the instructors, BUT the level of professionalism and quality of service has not. Their work often surpasses profession beauty salons which are much pricier. You get a great deal in a real quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

Schiieyenne Parker-Bowser: Ms. Polite is rude as hell. I called a phone number that my child called me from and asked a question and she got so rude. She is a supposedly student at the Bennet Hair School/Institute on Monroe street in DC. I was disrespected and rudely treated. She is not someone to go to to get her hair done, if that’s her real name. To be polite is totally different from what this person gave, horribly disrespectful.

Tracy Cross Lucas: Always have a great experience here except after COVID. Website is NOT updated. Went after taking Friday off to be informed that I needed an appointment-not on website-other services, like eyebrow waxing are not offered-COVID and not listed on website AND they are now closed on SATURDAY. I was informed this by the woman at the service window. Please update the site. Another person walked in after me, without an appointment, and had to go through the same ordeal. That sucks.

Sandra Jenkins: Got to my appointment early. Staff was kind enough to start servicing me before my scheduled appointment. Due to shortage of students staff pitched in to service clients. Got finished in very timely manner.

A Diablo: The hair service I received was great I just didn't like how my shirt was stained in the process and the lack of action accountability around that incident. I'm unsure if I will be returning.

Annette Wiggins-Bey: I appreciate their professionalism, I was taken care of in a timely fashion. I definitely will recommend to family. I live in Baltimore and don't trust no one there to put hands in my head . It is beautiful that I can come back home and find someplace where the customer is definitely number one. Thank you!!
