Katie Shawger Cotton is a professional makeup artist and hair artist who has worked all over the country and has over 12 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. She is an on location artist, which means she will come to YOU on your big day.

Katie believes in quality and precise application but most importantly listening to my client which is YOU! She believes 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, she knows high end beauty products that both have the durability for all day wear (the products Katie uses 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 uses a mixture of airbrush as well as traditional makeup application. She is 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.

Katie also has a team of artists she can bring with her in the event of large bridal parties. And she trusts these ladies SO much, that she has developed another company so that these wonderful artists can be booked out on weddings and events as well. So if Katie is already booked on your big day, she can help make sure you are taken care of! Read less

Katie and her team are WONDERFUL! I used them for hair & make up for my engagement photos (more of a casual look) and then on my wedding day along with all my bridesmaids. Her team was so quick to respond and flexible as some of my girls changed their needs along the way. I honestly did not look at any other hair/makeup vendor since I had such a great experience with Cotton Rouge for my engagement session however talking with other people their prices are much more reasonable than others in the area. They come to YOU which is great, I was so happy to be able to get ready in my living room with my dog by my side, it was so much more relaxing than being stuck in a salon. Along with price, quality and them being awesome people THEY ARE SO FAST.....I couldn't believe how fast they were flying through hair and makeup on everyone and everyone looked AMAZING. I had an earlier wedding, they arrived at 8am and had 8 girls hair & makeup completed before 11am.

HIGHLY recommend them for a wedding, special event, just a fun night on the town you want to jazz yourself up a bit, they are GREAT!

Her team was so quick to respond and flexible as some of my girls changed their needs along the way. I honestly did not look at any other hair/makeup vendor since I had such a great experience with Cotton Rouge for my engagement session however talking with other people their prices are much more reasonable than others in the area. They come to YOU which is great, I was so happy to be able to get ready in my living room with my dog by my side, it was so much more relaxing than being stuck in a salon. Along with price, quality and them being awesome people THEY ARE SO FAST.....I couldn't believe how fast they were flying through hair and makeup on everyone and everyone looked AMAZING. I had an earlier wedding, they arrived at 8am and had 8 girls hair & makeup completed before 11am.

HIGHLY recommend them for a wedding, special event, just a fun night on the town you want to jazz yourself up a bit, they are GREAT! Read less

After talking with other salons I was a little worried that we would be spending our whole wedding day getting hair and make up done, so I was thrilled when we met with Trisha and Katie and they said they would send a team to the Westin Poinsett's Presidential Suite and get everything done on-site for the whole wedding party, including Mother of the Bride and Groom in just a few hours!
Trisha and her team set up while we were at a Bridal Brunch downstairs and made the entire process go very quickly! All of the bridesmaid's had pictures of how they wanted their hair and the team was able to replicate all of them perfectly. Definitely would recommend them for anyone looking to have hair and make up done for any type of group or occasion!

Katie is amazing! She did hair and makeup for 5 people on my wedding day. She was very flexible when someone added services. Katie was fun to talk to and felt like she was one of the girls. She has a great vision of what will or won't work on each person. I think her prices are very reasonable and it was so nice being pampered on my wedding day!

I used Cotton Rouge for my hair & makeup & all the hair & makeup for my bridesmaids at my wedding this past Saturday. Latia & Shannon were our stylists and they did an amazing job. They took what each girl wanted & created such great looks! I loved each girls hair & makeup including my own. I also love that they use airbrushed makeup so that it lasted all day! I highly recommend using Cotton Rouge for hair & makeup - they do a flawless job!!

So professional! Amazingly beautiful Hair and gorgeous makeup! Flexible and friendly! I had my hair and makeup done for my wedding day by one of Katie Cottons girls. First, I went to get a trial done and Katie was there, she was awesome. I had Ashley do my hair and makeup. She used waterproof makeup and airbrush. I looked and felt flawless the whole day of my wedding despite the humid weather and dancing the night away. They came to my hotel room at the Westin Poinsett to do it. They were on time, worked quickly, and made me feel relaxed. Latia, another stylist came also to do my bridesmaids hair and makeup. I would highly recommend Katie Cotton for your wedding day hair and makeup. All my friends want to book Katie for their big day after seeing how great her and her staff were to work with.

Katie and her assistant did the hair and makeup for our May 24, 2014 wedding.

Not only did they make my six bridesmaids, mom, mother-in-law, and me look amazing, they did it all in about three hours. They listened to what everyone wanted and made the girls look like their most beautiful selves; not a bunch of cookie cutter bridesmaids.

Katie was great to work with before the big day, too. She and her team were responsive to e-mails and she took the time to really understand what I wanted during my consult.

We got so many compliments on our hair and makeup at the wedding, and it looks stunning in the pictures, as well. I cannot recommend Katie and her team highly enough!

We had a wide range of "makeup wearers",non makeup wearers to full makeup everyday- and she was accommodating to all! Our hair turned out great as well- the girls just showed a few saved photos and had a quick chat and they were on there way to their wedding hair! They styled all down, half up, and full updos for our group. My trial was fun- ended up being at Katie's home studio-it was nice to meet her!

I could not have been more pleased with the service I got from Melissa at Cotton Rouge. She and her daughter worked so hard and did a fantastic job. We ordered the half day of services, and they did makeup and hair for me (the bride), my sister, my mother, and my mother-in-law. They also did makeup for one of my bridesmaids and hair for the other. Everyone looked flawless!

Melissa and her daughter Alyssa came to my mother-in-law's house and brought all of their tools. They worked quickly and calmly and were very pleasant to be around. One bridesmaid wasn't entirely pleased with how her hair looked after the first attempt, and Melissa simply redid it with no questions asked when we requested that it be fixed.

The makeup and hair lasted all day and evening--we still looked good at 2am, twelve hours after application (or at least we thought so)!

As a small but relevant aside, Melissa already did a great job with the makeup and hair at the consultation, but the day of product was even better!

Pleasant, professional, skilled--all adjectives that describe Melissa and Alyssa. I would recommend them and the broader Cotton Rouge team to anyone--it's a great deal, and you won't be disappointed!

I used Katie for hair and makeup for engagement pictures, rehearsal dinner and my entire wedding party. She was fabulous! It rained every weekend this past summer, and Katie let me repeatedly reschedule my hair/makeup appointment for engagement pictures - even letting me come to her house last minute when the sun finally came out and we could do our pictures! Katie and her assistant did a fantastic job doing hair/makeup for 8 bridesmaids, 2 mothers and me in a 3 hour period of time while making everyone look fantastic! She works so efficiently and does such a great job. The airbrush makeup is life changing! :) I feel like I'm going to have withdrawals from seeing my friend now that I don't have any events coming up!

What is there to say about Katie that hasn't already been said in previous reviews?? I am so happy I was able to book her for my wedding. Her and Latia were so quick to respond to any questions and random emails I sent. She is so talented, I looked flawless on my wedding day and it was all thanks to her. I had 6 bridesmaids and myself, and she was able to make us look and feel great in just 3 hours! I wouldn't recommend anyone else. I'm even trying to come up with reasons to book an appointment with her again!! :-)

Basically what this review comes down to is that Katie Cotton is amazing! Hair and makeup is an art form to her and she has mastered that art. She is also a sweet and easygoing person. You can truly relax while she creates your look.

I heard about her through a photographer that she works with and I had been following her Instagram feed for months when I finally had an excuse/reason to have her do my makeup. She gave me a gorgeous smokey eye and my face looked super smooth and fresh from the airbrushed makeup. She also created the updo I wanted quickly and effortlessly. Both my makeup and hair looked incredible all day and night long.

I am so happy that I had her do my hair and makeup as it was the most stress free I have been before an event! It was incredible not to have to fight with my hair and just let a pro do it!

We had 11 people needing both hair and makeup on the day of the wedding. Katie and her assistant were really patient and easy to work with. They made sure everyone was happy with both their hairstyle and their make-up and even redid a few if the girls weren't satisfied fully. It's so convenient having Katie come to the hotel room and prep everyone instead of going to a salon. I really enjoyed working with Katie and would make the same decision all over again. Fantastic!

She was awesome to work with! She made you feel so comfortable. I don't wear much makeup and she didn't make me look like a clown. I looked wonderful. If you want to look your best on your day Katie is your girl. I forgot my veil at her house, she brought it with her on the wedding day , so I wouldn't have to make an extra trip back to Greenville. She is a real gem. We LOVE Cotton Rouge!

Katie is absolutely amazing! I had a vision on my wedding day how I wanted to look and not only did she bring that vision to life she made my hair and make-up even better then I had imagined. She is incredible professional and personable at the same time. Very easy to talk to and always open to suggestions. I will definitely continue to use Cotton Rouge services in the future!

I even had a little meltdown in the middle of my makeup and Katie did everything to calm my nerves and settle me down. They were wonderful and such a huge part of making my day amazing!

I was very pleased with Katie Cotton's services. She did hair and makeup for myself, my mother, and my four bridesmaids. Everyone looked great!! We had not had any consultations ahead of time, so she met all of us for the first time that day. She got some background on each of us before starting, to give her an idea of what kind of makeup and hair products would work best. Our hair and makeup lasted all day and through the reception. She even gave me some powder and lip gloss to freshen up throughout the day. Katie was wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend using her!

Katie was wonderful!! She came to our home months before the wedding and did a practice run for my daughter with her hair and makeup. Katie was patient and did a great job listening to what she wanted. They played and had fun until it was just right! Then she came to the Bridal Shoot and worked her magic, helping my daughter feel like her most beautiful self! Katie was very prompt returning calls and emails for details about the wedding day. She came and did the my daughter's hair and makeup and was so relaxed and calm. I even asked her to apply my makeup at the last minute and she jumped right in and didn't make me feel "made up" - just a little more special "me" :) We also had 5 bridesmaids and the Mother of the Groom who wanted their hair fixed for the wedding day so Katie brought 3 more stylists with her in order to get the girls and the MOG ready without it taking all morning. We so appreciated that! The makeup lasted ALL day and didn't need any touch up - amazing! And my daughter's hair was picture perfect even as they rode off for their honeymoon! We are blessed to have Katie's talents right here! Thank you for everything, Katie! You were a joy and made my girl feel her prettiest on her most special day!

Katie was the very first vendor I booked when we got engaged. I saw all of her incredible reviews on Wedding Wire and knew I had to have her! She was so sweet and so easy to work with. I planned our wedding from out-of-town so she worked in my hair & makeup preview on the day of my bridal portraits. I LOVE the airbrush makeup - it looked amazing from start to finish in all of the wedding pictures! She did an amazing job on all of the wedding party and myself - she is very efficient and very reasonably priced! I would HIGHLY recommend Katie to any bride!

I can't say enough great things about working with Katie. When we met for my first consulation, we got my make-up in a great place, but I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with my hair. Katie was so patient with me and told me how important it was to her for us to get it right. It took us two more meetings to land on the perfect updo, but I was so happy with the end result. On the day of, Katie showed up on time and worked with two assistants to make sure me and my five bridesmaids were ready with some time to spare. She's also incredibly flexible - in addition to taking care of me and my bridesmaids, she was able to squeeze in my last minute request the day of to do the hair for my brother-in-law's girlfriend and touch up my husband's razor burn on his neck. Her prices are also incredibly reasonable and she's got the perfect disposition: outgoing and creative, yet calm and organized.

Katie is the BEST! I've worked with Katie twice - once as a bridesmaid and once as a bride.

She takes great care of you - responding to emails quickly, arriving completely stocked with anything and everything you could want hair/make-up-wise, and willing to do ANYTHING you may need to make your day a success (even if it's not hair/make-up related). -- Katie has buckled my shoes when I couldn't bend down in my dress, cut my tags off when I forgot to remove them, and tied and trimmed my sash when no one else knew how. Katie is more than a hair and make-up artist - she becomes part of the wedding party!

I highly recommend Katie to anyone!

I can't say enough about Katie Cotton. She is absolutely fabulous!!!! The week of my wedding I had a major stress break out on my face. I was so worried that my pictures would be a mess because of this huge breakout on my forehead. I literally screamed and hugged Katie when I saw my make up because my face was absolutely flawless. All of my girls had their hair and make up done by Katie and her assistant and they were all equally impressed. Katie also did my hair and make up for my bridal portraits and it was just as wonderful. This was one of the best investments I made during the entire wedding planning process. Well worth every penny!

There were several things that were important to me in finding someone who would do my hair and makeup for our wedding, and they ended up being harder to find than I thought! After a terrible experience at a Greenville salon, I was considering doing my own hair/makeup. Thank goodness I found Katie instead! She was the most professional, most creative, best dollars spent of the entire wedding. Here's why:
Cost: let's be honest, as a bride it's hard to justify all of the expense that goes into our "look" for the day. I was worried that I was spending too much money already to justify paying someone else to do my hair and makeup. Now that the wedding is over, I would honestly have paid two to three times as much to have Katie do her magic. If you are even considering having someone else to do your makeup and hair, hire Katie. You will not regret it for one minute.
Quality: Katie is incredible. She uses great products and knows how to make them work. From the consultation to the final touchup that she did (outside, in the grass!), I knew I was in the hands of someone who truly has perfected her craft. Katie did my makeup and hair as well as that of my sister and mother (neither usually wear much makeup), and our makeup lasted all night through hugging, kissing 1,000 people, and dancing. Katie did us up at about 10AM, and at 2AM I was still washing makeup off my face and could have easily slept in it to wear to brunch the following day.
Creativity: The difference between doing my own makeup or having a friend do it and having Katie do it (aside from how relaxing she is while she does it!) was that Katie has so many more tricks up her sleeves. During my consultation we tried several hairstyles until we settled on the one we liked. She was able to do things to my hair (very thin, shoulder length at best) that I could have never dreamed up! The makeup she did for me and my family was incredible, especially considering how different each of our looks was.
Overall experience: As you can probably tell, I can't say enough good things about Katie. I echo every other bride here when I say I'd be on the waiting list to sign up for a "pocket-sized Katie Cotton." She really made me feel like the most beautiful version of myself, and I could not have imagined a more flexible, professional, calming person to have by my side on my wedding day.

There were several things that were important to me in finding someone who would do my hair and makeup for our wedding, and they ended up being harder to find than I thought! After a terrible experience at a Greenville salon, I was considering doing my own hair/makeup. Thank goodness I found Katie instead! She was the most professional, most creative, best dollars spent of the entire wedding. Here's why:
Cost: let's be honest, as a bride it's hard to justify all of the expense that goes into our "look" for the day. I was worried that I was spending too much money already to justify paying someone else to do my hair and makeup. Now that the wedding is over, I would honestly have paid two to three times as much to have Katie do her magic. If you are even considering having someone else to do your makeup and hair, hire Katie. You will not regret it for one minute.

Katie Cotton of Cotton Rouge did the most phenomenal job at my wedding party! Not only did she and her assistant do my hair and make up she also was responsible for hair and make up for my FOUR bridesmaids, TWO sister in laws, TWO flower girls, BOTH of my grandmothers, my aunt, stepmom and mother. She was an absolute joy to have in my room and had no problem handing that there were up to 15 people in the room at one time. She even made sure to cover up some keloids i have on my back, with her fabulous airbrushing skills, to make me feel more comfortable and you couldn't see not ONE in ANY photo!

Katie and her assistant Lauren were incredible of taking my vision and making it a reality. She listened to any concern and addressed them efficiently. Not to mention that my girls looked just as fabulous from when the walked in the church to the after party ended at about 4 in the morning (and they began getting ready at 9 in the morning!!!)! She even met me and my wedding party at the Church right before we walked in to check in on us after her previous bride.

Katie Cotton is extremely talented and I cant wait to book her for any event in my future! Her service are extremely well priced for the outstanding quality of service that you receive from her. Thank you Katie for making me feels so glamorous on my big day!!!

Katie Cotton is amazing! I received her card through my wedding officiant. I was not sure if I was going to go with a professional makeup artist but I emailed her anyways due to curiosity. After emailing her for contract information and pricing I decided it was best to sign a contract and book her for my wedding date. I believe that was one of the best decisions I made during the entire planning process. Not only did she do a great job on the wedding day at making me feel beautiful (which my self-confidence is on the lower end so that is a pretty great accomplishment) but she also helped me out with engagement photos and bridal photos (my scheduled photographer for the wedding day was unavailable to take these photos). She did a GREAT job on those too! I was completely happy with all she did. For the wedding day Katie even made my flower girls feel beautiful by giving them a special princess look! I strongly recommend Katie for hair and makeup services as well as photography. You will not be disappointed!

Katie was fabulous. She was so helpful and made sure I still looked like myself on my wedding day. She not Only did my makeup but she also did 7 others on my wedding day. She came to my home and did all 8 of us back to back. Everyone looked amazing. In fact, guest at the wedding made comments on how great the wedding party looked. Not only is her work amazing but she is also very affordable. I called several makeup artists in the Greenville area for pricing. I also had a few consultations with other makeup artists. Katie impressed me and did the best job. She's a hard worker and very honest about what she thinks. Not only is she honest but she also wants the client to express their feelings on her work and to really let her know what they like and don't like.

Katie is AMAZING! My wedding was outside on a very humid day in July. I have very long hair and wanted my hair half up and curly for the ceremony. After the ceremony, pictures, etc. I realized I was insanely hot and the reception had not even started. So, good thing we hired Katie to stay! She QUICKLY (I mean like within five to ten minutes) totally re-did my hairstyle. I went from half up to a side bun and she even included a little braid in the bun (which I had in my original half-up hairstyle). Many guests commented on how quick the bridal party entered the reception venue and especially to see that I had a totally different hairstyle so quick. The guests loved the different hairstyle and many said they didn’t know which they loved the most, the half up or the side bun. Not only did Katie do an AMAZING job on my hair, but by far the best make up I have ever seen. I’ve had my makeup done many of times for pageants, prom, etc. but I was beyond pleased with Katie’s work. My make-up held up GREAT in the humid weather as well. It looked the same at the end of the night as it did seven hours previously. I loved having Katie with me for my special day! With Katie being there it made me feel so secure, because with the heat my hair usually falls and my skin becomes shiny. However, this was not the case with Katie being there. I did not have to worry at all about how I looked. Without even asking, Katie would automatically start touching up my make-up, curls, etc. My mother, mother in law, flower girl, and a couple of bridesmaids also had their hair/makeup done by Katie, and she treated them just the same. Touching them up as needed without even being asked. I felt so calm with Katie there, because anything I needed she was willing to take care of it. After finishing my side bun she even bustled my dress. She is more than a makeup and hairstylist. Every bride needs “a Katie” on their special day! She was overall VERY professional, so fun, sweet, and an AMAZING hair stylist and makeup artist. I would HIGHLY recommend to any bride if you splurge on ANYTHING on your special day it should be hair and makeup, because no matter how pretty the dress is, how good the photographer is, if you don’t feel beautiful and if your hair and makeup is not just the way you want it then you won’t be satisfied. I can guarantee if you have Katie with you on your special day you WILL be beyond satisfied!

AMAZING... AMAZING... AMAZING... I have never in my 55 years had my make up and hair look that great and stay "perfect" for that long! It was a very hot day -July 9th... for our very special wedding day for my son and beautiful new daughter. I felt as if Katie made me look 10 years younger...Her airbrush technique for my "foundation" took away years of working out in the weather. It amazed me how quickly she could take care of so many and make us all at our very best! Even though it was very hot/humid... and I was "glowing" - lol - my makeup stayed in place - no runs, no wear away... If I could afford to just keep her around on a daily basis - I would in a minute. I highly recommend that you use Katie for any special occasion - I know I will...

She is very flexible when doing trial runs and will do it until you get exactly what you want! I would def. reccomend Katie to anyone!! She is the BEST!!!

Katie and her assistant did my hair and makeup, my 5 bridesmaids, AND my mom and husband's mom. Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous. We felt like celebrities! Even a couple family members popped in, loved our look so much, and asked for touch-ups like false eyelashes, etc. I feel like we put a lot on her last minute, but she pulled it off wonderfully, with professionalism and fantastic work! Also, I was so stressed about the wedding, that an ugly cold sore showed up on my lip the night before the wedding. I was so worried that it was going to completely ruin my look, photos, and confidence, but Katie covered it up with no problem. No one ever noticed, and the makeup lasted all day!

I would most definitely recommend Katie 100%, don't be cheap thinking you can do your own makeup! Her services were very reasonably priced, and worth every penny. I've never felt more beautiful than I did that day, and I owe it all to her. Thank you so much Katie!!

She also includes a trial run, and she comes to you! I can't tell you how great it is to not have to travel to a salon on your wedding day. She has a great personality, and it was fun to chat with her. She fit right in with me and my bridesmaids so it was just like hanging out with friends.

Katie was my make-up artist at my wedding, and I am so beyond impressed with her. I had 5 bridesmaids, all in different dresses, and none of them knew what they wanted. She is so intuitive and skilled, she captured all of their individual styles and made everyone so comfortable. My girls looked amazing! And she was extremely fast!! I was the last one in her chair, and I wasn't sure what I wanted either. I had a bunch of pictures, but they were all different. I showed them to her, but honestly, after seeing what she did with the girls, I just told her to do what she thought was best. I am SO glad I did. She made me look exactly how I wanted, without me even knowing what that was!! She is just incredible. At one point when I was in the chair, I started to have a little bit of anxiety (a bunch of people had shown up & were running all over) and I swear without my saying a word, she just stopped and asked what I needed. She cleared the room and was so sweet and soothing I don't know what I'd have done without her. Throughout the entire day, she was right there. When my straps kept falling down during the limo ride to the ceremony, she tacked them down with wardrobe tape. After I cried my make-up off during the ceremony she swopped right in and touched me up before the photos. My husband & I rode in a convertible vintage car to the reception and my hair got horribly tangled in the wind. She was already waiting when we arrived & she took me to a bathroom to fix it before the introduction. After loads of dancing I had to get my hair up and she quickly threw it into a super cute bun right there on the dance floor! Needless to say, she is the best. So talented, so sweet, I wish I could carry her around in my pocket all the time! If you're lucky enough to book Katie for your wedding, you will be so happy you did!

Katie was my make-up artist at my wedding, and I am so beyond impressed with her. I had 5 bridesmaids, all in different dresses, and none of them knew what they wanted. She is so intuitive and skilled, she captured all of their individual styles and made everyone so comfortable. My girls looked amazing! And she was extremely fast!! I was the last one in her chair, and I wasn't sure what I wanted either. I had a bunch of pictures, but they were all different. I showed them to her, but honestly, after seeing what she did with the girls, I just told her to do what she thought was best. I am SO glad I did. She made me look exactly how I wanted, without me even knowing what that was!! She is just incredible. At one point when I was in the chair, I started to have a little bit of anxiety (a bunch of people had shown up & were running all over) and I swear without my saying a word, she just stopped and asked what I needed. She cleared the room and was so sweet and soothing I don't know what I'd have done without her. Throughout the entire day, she was right there. When my straps kept falling down during the limo ride to the ceremony, she tacked them down with wardrobe tape.

I actually contacted Katie at the last minute to do hair and makeup for my wedding. I was expecting her to be booked up, but I decided to contact her anyways. She was booked up, she said that she had several weddings that day, but she told me that she could do it. I thought that we may feel a little rushed, since she had a wedding before mine. But, she arrived at my hotel an hour before she had previously told me. If I had not known that I was not the only bride that she had done that day, I would have never known. She gave special attention to me and I never felt rushed. She is VERY polite and responsive to suggestions. My mother and I never looked more amazing! I also must add that my hair is straight as a board and it stayed curly the entire night! She also did my hair and makeup for a day that I had my bridal shots in the morning and my engagement photos in the evening. My makeup held up very well and my hair was perfect all day. She is a makeup maven!

Katie is amazing! She did hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding. Everyone was so pleased with her work. I absolutely loved the way she did my hair and makeup. She was so nice and worked with each girl to get them a style that they would like and feel comfortable in. Everyone had a different style and they were all beautiful. She was very patient and focused and her calmness helped to calm me down before the wedding. She was also very helpful leading up to the wedding. I was planning the wedding from out of town and she adjusted her schedule to meet with me while I was in town to do my trials. I definitely recommend Katie. Thank you so much Katie!!!!

Katie Cotton did hair and makeup for me, my 9 bridesmaids, my mom, my husband’s mom, AND the flower girls! She was so professional, sweet, and didn’t show any signs of stress if she was under any! She was able to schedule everyone’s hair and makeup appointments so that the day ran smoothly, and everyone was ready in time for photos. I looked around all over Greenville at various salons and independent stylists, and Katie had the best prices AND wonderful reviews. I was able to try out false lashes and airbrush makeup for my wedding day, and I only wish that I had Katie around to do my makeup and hair all the time. She had a small team of people to make sure everyone was ready in time, and she even came back to me right before the ceremony for makeup and hair touch-ups. She gave me a compact with powder and lipgloss as well that matched my complexion and the look that I was going for, and I am still using it daily almost 2 months after the wedding. I HIGHLY recommend booking Katie for your wedding hair and makeup….we all looked flawless. She was professional, on time, efficient, not overpriced, and went above and beyond to make sure that we were all happy. You won’t go wrong booking Katie!

Katie did the hair and make-up for my friend's wedding where I was a bridesmaid and once I saw the finished product, I knew I had to use her for my wedding. Between the two weddings I've seen her do, she's done elaborate up-dos, short hair, curled half-up-dos, etc. And everything lookes great! For make-up, she can achieve any look you're going for whether you want a "barely there" look (but still look good all day for wedding pictures) or something dramatic. And she has airbrush foundation which my bridesmaids loved and it lasts all day. Plus, she is extremely reasonably priced. Going to the bridal shows and hearing what other vendors cost, I was so happy I already had Katie to do my wedding! And she's already booked to do my friend's wedding next month! I highly recommend using Katie for your next event!

Katie was fantastic to work with. Being from Chicago and planning a wedding in South Carolina I was a little nervous about finding the right salon/person to make my bridal party and I look beautiful for the big day. She did both our hair and our makeup and I definitely made the right choice by booking her. She was very accommodating and came to our hotel the morning of. She got all 8 of us out the door within 2 and a half hours and we looked stunning! You will not be able to beat the quality of her work OR the price...I promise, I called everyone in the area. A+!

Katie Cotton was accommodating right from the start!! Once I heard she would come to me and my bridesmaids the day of my wedding I knew I was making the right choice. Then I heard how reasonable her prices were for her services and thought it was too good to be true!

Given that I was planning my wedding many miles away from where I was getting married, Katie worked around my schedule of when I could meet with her for my trial hair and make-up. As soon as I met Katie in person I knew she was someone who had many years of experience doing hair and make-up and was going to listen to what I wanted and how I wanted to look on my wedding day. I couldn't be happier with how I looked!

All of my bridesmaids loved Katie and her assistant and were pleased with how their hair and make-up looked. You will not be disappointed with Katie Cotton and her services!

She did makeup for me, 5 bridesmaids, and 2 moms and everyone was so pleased. We were glamorous but not overdone. I am very picky about my makeup and Katie made me very happy. She is also very reasonably priced; I found her to be quite a bit less expensive than other high-end makeup artists in Greenville. She was laid-back, fun to talk to, and has great stories from Los Angeles. Heck, she used to do makeup for Britney Spears' backup dancers!! Thanks, Katie, for making my wedding party and me fab!

Her prices were the best around, and I was able to tell her loosely what I wanted (without a hair trial ahead of time! :X), and she definitely delivered. I was so thrilled with the way everything turned out and was glad it was one less thing I had to worry about - I could confidently let her do her thing and knew it would turn out great. Thanks so much, Katie!

Katie was wonderful. She traveled to a local salon where we were getting our hair done. She did all 6 of my bridesmaid's makeup, my makeup and my mom's makeup. She was very efficient and fast ! She brought tons of options for the girls to choose from. I had airbrush makeup done, and it was wonderful. I didn't even feel like I had makeup on all day and no touch ups needed. Also, she is very affordable! Would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Of all the ‘wedding’ vendors a bride must work with, I was the most worried about hair/makeup. Venues, florists, caterers all have websites, tastings, pamphlets, reviews, etc readily available… you can easily research and gather information based on your needs. Hair and makeup is a completely different story. Many people have “done hair” and “done makeup,” however there is very little information available on who is “good.” I called my local hair salon to make an appointment for a wedding trial hair-do, but they (a) would not know the price until they “saw me”, and (b) did not know if they could send someone to my wedding venue on the day of (!!!!) I cancelled that appointment and then found KATIE!!!!

As a bride who does not generally wear a lot of makeup, I wanted to make sure I felt and looked like myself. I also was a bit hesitant and unsure of exactly what I wanted. Katie is phenomenal. Not once did she make me feel lame for being 27 years old and having zero knowledge of makeup!! She did several different trials with me to ensure I was comfortable, and I swear she was just as excited as me when we finally found the perfect hair/makeup combination that made me feel like a princess! You cannot get this level of one-on-one service and undivided attention at a salon.

She is very professional, responsive, timely and helpful. My wedding director raves about Katie. In her 20+ years of working in the wedding industry, she has seen more than a few makeup artists who either show up late.. or not at all. Katie is not only on time… she is early (one less thing to stress about on the day-of!!) in order to make sure she knows the layout of your venue.

Katie did my wedding hair and makeup, 6 bridesmaids and 2 moms. One of my bridesmaids has since gotten engaged.. and booked Katie to do HER wedding. I have also hosted a makeup class at my house which Katie taught (how to apply makeup, different brush types, best products for your $$, etc).

She is very professional, responsive, timely and helpful. My wedding director raves about Katie. In her 20+ years of working in the wedding industry, she has seen more than a few makeup artists who either show up late.. or not at all. Katie is not only on time… she is early (one less thing to stress about on the day-of!!) in order to make sure she knows the layout of your venue.

Katie did my wedding hair and makeup, 6 bridesmaids and 2 moms. One of my bridesmaids has since gotten engaged.. and booked Katie to do HER wedding. I have also hosted a makeup class at my house which Katie taught (how to apply makeup, different brush types, best products for your $$, etc). Read less

Katie was amazing the months leading up to my wedding and on the big day! We had multiple trial run hair and makeup appointments until I found the perfect fit for me. She was so patient and helpful since planning the wedding was hard enough I wanted my look to be perfect! She also did an amazing job on all 9 of my bridesmaids and did not get tired, or even take a break until we were all beautiful! It was a great experience and I would recommend her over and over if you want to look gorgeous on your wedding day or any other day!

Katie is fantastic! She will do anything you want. She did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup and also the rest of my bridal party and my mother in law. She made people who dont normal wear makeup look wonderful. She made my flower girl, also my daughter look amazing with her hair. She is priced great for what you get. She uses great high end products.

Absolutely amazing. She listens to you and gives you what you want and more! She did my cousin's makeup for her wedding, my bridal portraits, rehearsal dinner, and wedding. Each time she welcomed me in for a trial run and went over the details in preparation for each look. You would be crazy to not use Katie! She has great stories about her previous work in LA :)

Katie was an absolute pleasure to work with during my wedding, one of the few wedding vendors that was incredibly easy and fun to work with! Her fees were extremely reasonable, she worked with me until I was happy with my hair, and she matched a model's makeup from a magazine I liked perfectly! She did all my bridesmaids' makeup, their hair, and hair and makeup for my mother quickly, but with amazing attention to detail. She came prepared with everything she could possibly need and was a joy to have in the bridal suite. A month after my wedding, I was in a friend's wedding who did her own hair, and Katie was kind enough to answer a question over e-mail during a hair crisis on the day of the ceremony! I hope to have another event where I need my makeup and hair done, just so I can have an opportunity to work with her again!

Katie's work is stunning! I was quite nervous about hiring anyone to do my makeup and hair for my wedding, in fact, I was going to do my own (though I never do - yes, I am a pretty low maintenance girl).
Katie took her time and put my mind at ease. She used colors that worked with my skin tone, and looked as natural as possible. She used enough to make me look like a princess but not too much where people were shocked. I looked like myself, just prettier! :) The day of the wedding, I was still not too sure how I wanted my hair but I knew I did not want "wedding hair" but something classy, beautiful and natural - she did a fabulous job making my hair look natural but also fitting for a formal, evening wedding.
Katie also did makeup and hair for my 3 bridesmaids - she was so patient with each girl, taking the time to compliment their styles with the right make up and hair do. Each girl looked beautiful, classy and natural!

Thank you Katie!

Katie was an amazing makeup artist. She not only made my wedding day even more perfect, but she also gave me a friendship that you don't find with anyone else. She has the best experience around and the best personality. She made me beautiful! She did the makeup for the bridal party including the mothers, and everyone loved their new look. I highly recommend Katie and have already given her name and number to all my friends. Thanks a bunch Katie!

i picked katie to do my makeup and hair due to the reviews of brides that were so happy with her services, but also those who wanted a "natural" makeup look, and were also so pleased. katie is not actually in charleston, so doing the complementary trail run was a bit hard to fit into our schedule, due to the fact that we were only going to be in charleston for 2 days (we live in north carolina). there was also travel fees that needed to be added on to her fees, since she is about a 3 hour drive from charleston. but to me it was worth it. she was easy to work with, great personality, made you feel comfortable, and knew what she was doing. i had a couple of concerns after the trail, but all were addressed the day of. my one bridesmaid that didn't want her hair or makeup done even changed her mind and had her hair done after seeing everyone else done. she also did make up on my mom, which brightened up her face, took years off, and ultimately made her more comfortable, which was good since she was walking me down the aisle. we all really liked her and would totally recommend her.

I had the privilege of working with one of Katie's associates, Melissa. She met with me on a rainy Sunday afternoon to do a trial run for my bridal portraits, and came to my hotel the day of. She did a great job on my hair and makeup and it managed to last, even through 95 weather!

I hadn't been sure whether I wanted to have my hair and make-up done, but I am so thankful I did. It took a few phone calls to get in touch with Katie because she happened to be out of town, but once we did connect, she set me up with one of her artists, Mandy - less than 2 weeks before my wedding! They both listened to me and gave great advice during the consultation. On the day of, it was well worth having someone else come to us to take car of our hair and make-up. Allowed for quality time with my mom, family, and friends while someone else worried about making us look beautiful. I loved the final product on the actual wedding day. Both my make-up and hair lasted through the ceremony, pictures, and dancing at the reception. I'd recommend Cotton Rouge!

Katie was especially wonderful in that she came to me on my wedding day. I am so glad she did--it relived so much pressure.

It's also great that Katie does both makeup and hair. :)

Her consultation beforehand was also very helpful for me. She helped me discover that I didn't actually like the hairstyle I had chosen for myself! We picked something beautiful and I was extremely happy with her work.
