Cotton Rouge & Company is the upstate premiere on location makeup and hair team. The company is owned and operated by professional makeup and even hair stylist, Katie Cotton.

Katie Cotton has worked all over the country and has over 15 years of experience in the industry. In 2006, she relocated from the West Coast (Los Angeles) to the East Coast and resides currently in the Upstate of South Carolina. While traveling on location was the norm in Los Angeles, it was a new concept for the upstate in 2006. Katie does have a studio that you can also come into for appointments when desired.

As Katie's bridal business gained momentum in the Carolina's, she started to work with and also train additional artists to assist with large bridal parties. As these artists proved to have great talent and shared Katie's vision that everyone deserves to feel like a star on their wedding day, Katie began subcontracting these artists for bridal clients when she wasn't available. To her delight, many wedding vendors loved the idea of the "team" and knowing that all bridal parties under her would be very well taken care of... thus Cotton Rouge & Company was born.

CR&Co believes in quality and precise application but most importantly listening to my client which is YOU! They believe that the bride should look like the most beautiful version of herself on her big day! This can mean a clean natural but radient makeup or an all out glam supermodel look. Whichever it is that is the personality of the bride! But this look must stay all day and to acheive this, they know the high end beauty products that both have the durability for all day wear (the products used are waterproof, smudgeproof and extremely longwear, 18-24 hours) so that they remain flawless all day, look amazing in photographs but also still look just as amazing in true life and not like you have a face full of makeup! To acheive this, Katie and her team use a mixture of airbrush as well as traditional makeup application. They are able to use more or less of airbrush dependent on the client's wishes.

With hundreds upon hundreds of weddings under her belt, Katie prides herself on her ability to listen to her client. She excels in natural beauty and making someone the "best possible version of themselves" for their wedding! But for those brides who wish to be a little more glam, she loves doing that too! She is also accomplished in event hair styling so that your hair style will last thru photos, ceremony, photos and then some heavy dancing! Katie has been featured in numerous publications including Weddings with Style magazine and People Magazine. You can read her full resume of production, commerical publication and fashion work on her websites, http://www.cottonrouge.com and http://www.facebook.com/cottonrouge where you can view her bridal work as well as her work in fashion.

As for her team of artists... they range from makeup artists who only do makeup, to hair artists that work in salons during the week but still subcontracted for weddings with Cotton Rouge & Company on the weekend, to artists who do both makeup and event hair styling. We do have a studio for Cotton Rouge & Company, but all artists are on location artists as well. Read less

I had never had my makeup professionally done before my wedding, so I was not sure of what to expect. On top of that, living out in sunny San Diego made it impossible for me to be able to schedule any trial beforehand. You guys put me immediately at ease though and made me confident with my choice at every turn. On wedding day, Katie worked so quickly but made all of us feel so beautiful. We even added an extra bridesmaid to her timeline, and she still had us all finished in plenty of time! We all agreed that we had never felt so pampered or so beautiful. Katie, thank you so much for making me, my family, and my friends feel so relaxed all day. You are a true professional and are so AMAZING at what you do. Latia, thank you for answering my million questions!

Katie and co have been so accommodating to make my wedding possible. I had my makeup trial and my stylist, Melissa, listened to everything I wanted and performed her magic. I was surprised at what she was able to do with my hair, and how amazing my makeup turned out! I explained I didn't want one thing/wanted to change it because it wasn't me and didn't feel/look right and she made sure to note it down and adjust to make it how I like. They also worked with me on my budget/time by scheduling me earlier than another party, which is fantastic. I've booked them for the morning-of and cannot wait to get dolled up again.

Katie did an amazing job for hair and makeup for me, my bridesmaids, and my mom the day of my wedding! Everyone was so impressed by how amazing she was & how fast she worked! Katie showed up to get us ready despite it snowing the night before & she never complained! Some of my other vendors cancelled because of the snow but Katie didn't!

Heather and Kelly from Cotton Rouge traveled to Columbia to do makeup and hair for my wedding. I couldn't be more pleased with their services. They were on time, came prepared with their own lights and made myself, my bridesmaids, and my family members look beautiful! I would recommend them to anyone who wants quality services and to look beautiful for their wedding day! Their prices were also very reasonable. Loved them!

A 5 star rating with 150+ reviews says it all. Katie and her team are amazing and they were referred to us as the "best option possible" in the Upstate SC area. After having my hair and makeup trial, I could definitely see why! I worked with Katie and she was so fun to be around (which is important when you're spending all day of your wedding together!) and she is an amazing makeup artist. She has a ton of experience and really accommodates a variety of styles/skin types/etc. She and her colleague made my bridesmaids and I look amazing and we opted to have extra "buffer" hours, which was such a great idea (there will be tears!)

Melissa was the best on my wedding day. She made me feel calm and relaxed. Getting my hair and makeup done was the first time I had sat down all day. Having the time to relax and enjoy the moment really helped with my stress level. Cotton Rouge was amazing from the consultation and all throughout the wedding day. They also did hair and makeup for most of my bridesmaids and my mother. They all looked amazing. Katie even let me use Taylors Mill last minute when my original bridal shoot location had rained out. I highly recommend these ladies for your wedding day. You will not regret it.

I was so happy with having Katie as my hair and makeup artist for both my hair+makeup trial and my wedding! I was really pressed for time to find somebody to do my makeup both for my hair+makeup trial/engagement photos (since I had to coordinate with my photographers and the venue we were going to take photos at) and my wedding (which was only about 7-8 short months away at this point). Thankfully I was able to talk to Katie over the phone, and even though her studio was not available at the time I needed to have my makeup done before taking engagement photos, she was able to accommodate me at another location that was close by. I was so happy with how my makeup and hair looked for my engagement photos, and Katie was so great at adjusting to the few tweaks that I was requesting on my wedding day. I normally don't wear a lot of makeup, and Katie did a great job with not making me look too "glammed up", yet still beautiful. Not only was I super happy with my wedding day look, but so were my mom and MOH, who got their hair/makeup done as well. She works super fast which was great for keeping to wedding day timeline, and she has a calming presence that made us just feel like there was another friend in the room. She was also very flexible with our last minute requests. I would highly recommend doing the airbrush makeup and false eyelashes that she provides complimentary with makeup...they definitely make a difference in the engagement/wedding photos!
