I offer bridal hair and makeup services for the entire wedding party. I can accomodate any size wedding party and work all on location. I will bring the team to you wherever you desire. The peace of mind and convenience of having the "salon come to you" is invaluable on your wedding day. With the bride's wedding day package, a beautiful touch up kit is included. The kit comes in a custom designed silver quilted makeup bag with the lip color of your choice, blotting papers and a custom created mirror as well. The full makeup applications include airbrush foundation and false lashes if desired.

My customer service is second to none. It's all about what YOU want, not what the artist wants. I am here to help guide you in designing a look that is exactly what YOU want. The key to finding a good artist for your wedding is one that listens to you and what you are trying to achieve and helps you to do exactly that. I do require a trial run so that both the artist and the bride feel comfortable and confident that the perfect look has been acheived. I will walk you through step by step so that you feel great about the results. I tell all my brides that we are working as a team to get the look exactly right.

I also offer a fun idea for a bachelorette party...Glitter Tattoos!! These tattoos are temporary but do last for up to 7 days and are waterproof. The are customized for each person. With enough notice (3 weeks) I can have customized tattoos made. Imagine all of your bachelorette party goers all wearing the bride and groom's name on your person. They are also great for the honeymoon as well!! Please contact me for additional details. I can be booked by the hour to do the glitter tattoos and will come to your location. Read less

I recently had "Jen Santoro Rotty Makeup + Hair" style both my makeup and hair for a wedding in which I was a bridesmaid. Jen created looks for me that lasted the entire day/evening with no touch-ups and I received endless compliments on both my hair and makeup. Scheduling was easy and the appointment was relaxing! I would highly recommend "Jen Santoro Rotty Makeup + Hair"!

Jen did the makeup for my daughter and her bridesmaids, as well as for me, on the day of her wedding, and I think I speak for all of them when I say we loved both the experience and the results. Initially, some of the girls were a little hesitant about wearing makeup, fearing it might be overdone, but Jen's talent only enhanced each girl's personal beauty, making everyone feel very pampered and special. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone considering having their makeup done professionally for a special occasion.

Jen did my makeup for my wedding as well as some of my bridesmaids. She did a FABULOUS job and I couldn't be happier! It's the best I've ever looked and the photos turned out amazing! Our wedding was on July 6, 2013 and IT WAS HOT! The temperature was in the 90's with high humidity and our whole wedding ceremony and reception was outside. I was worried that the makeup wouldn't withstand the heat, humidity and sweat but it still looked great when we got back to the hotel at the end of the night!

Jen arrived early and was ready to go when we arrived. She was super easy to work with, cheerful, fun and flexible as far as timing went. I will definitely be using her again! Thanks, Jen!

Sincerely,
Carrie

Jen was able to fit me in for services with very little notice. I had an appointment scheduled with another salon, but cancelled as Jen comes highly recommended and I was encouraged by a family member to seek out services from her. Although I really had no idea what I wanted besides a photograph for my desired hairstyle, she was able to choose makeup colors and designs that complimented my skin, eyes and hair perfectly. I am so happy that I made the decision to work with her.

Jen is fun to work with and engages in great conversation while working diligently with you so the time goes by quickly. She did such a wonderful job and I felt like a queen on my special day. If you are seeking VIP treatment and top notch service I would recommend Jen. She is the best!!

I would 100 percent recommend Jen for your hair and makeup. She and I hit it off right from the start and had so much fun on the day of my "trial run" that once the actual wedding day rolled around, it felt like she was a girlfriend doing my hair and makeup, not someone I'd only met once before. I'm a pretty picky person and had a very specific idea of what I DIDN'T want on my wedding day, but needed help figuring out what I DID want. (I.e. I needed to still look like myself, but wanted to step it up a notch.) Jen was awesome in that regard -- really listening to me and hearing what I had to say, rather than going in the direction she had in mind (which is what I've experienced with other professionals in the industry). The final result was still ME, but it was an enhanced version -- and something I could have never achieved on my own. My husband still talks about my "glow" that day and how it took his breath away. (It was airbrushed foundation, but he doesn't need to know that!) :)

P.S. Jen traveled over three hours to my hometown and arrived with a smile on her face. I come from a small town and didn't want to take my chances with someone less experienced, from the area. My bridesmaids loved Jen and were very happy with their results as well.

I got married on May 30, 2009. I had decided on airbrush make-up, because I wanted something to last most/all day so I wouldn't have to reapply it, (I'm NOT good with make-up!). Everyone I contacted was booked. Just when I was about to give up, I found Jen Rotty. She happened to still be available on my wedding date, so I booked a trial run. I was really pleased with the results of the trial run, but I don't think I could have been happier with the wedding day results! WOW!

I got SO many compliments, and Jen was SO NICE. I really felt/looked wonderful on my special day. I have a bit of acne scarring on my cheeks, and I was really worried about it showing, especially in the pictures, but I looked awesome! Jen was a little bit more expensive than a few of the vendors I looked into, (and cheaper than some as well), but I feel my results were worth every penny I spent. I cannot say enough good things about her!

When I was looking for someone to do my hair and makeup, I really wanted it to be one person doing everything. I had also heard that airbrush makeup was the thing to do. I wasn’t sure where to go or look so I had goggled it and found Jen Santoro Rotty’s website. There was no need to look any further, I found my hair and makeup artist. Jen and I exchanged some emails and phone calls. I had set up my trial run at my house with her. I wasn’t exactly sure how I wanted my hair and makeup because I feel like I'm just not good at that stuff. Jen talked through some things with me, made suggestions and put my nerves at ease. She definitely did not disappointment me….I absolutely LOVED it when she finished! Jen and her team did the hair and makeup for all 7 of my bridesmaids. Everyone looked gorgeous! Jen is professional, personable and very talented. The service she provides is top notch!She made me into a princess on my big day.

Jen is AMAZING! I was so lucky to find her for my wedding party after my local salon botched all my appointments a month out from our date.

She was super flexible and drove out to where we live in the northern burbs twice! We had such a great “trial run” consultation that I was so confident that the actual wedding day would run smoothly.

I also had bridal party of 6 bridesmaids, myself and my Mom that needed their hair done. Jen was able to secure another stylist and managed her time so well – that we were all done and out the door for pictures on time. It was so relaxing to have all my girls just hang out at home, chat and get all dolled up. It’s a truly special memory to me.

The best part about her services besides being a total blast to be around is that she made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day. I look back at the pictures and my skin looks like porcelain and my hair was perfect the entire time. People still talk about how pretty my make-up looked and that I looked like me the whole time – not overly done up.

I’ve recommended her to numerous co-workers and friends. I tell people that it may feel like a splurge but in the long run you can’t replace that feeling of being beautiful and it shows in those pictures forever. :-)

Jen is AMAZING! I was so lucky to find her for my wedding party after my local salon botched all my appointments a month out from our date.

She was super flexible and drove out to where we live in the northern burbs twice! We had such a great “trial run” consultation that I was so confident that the actual wedding day would run smoothly.

I also had bridal party of 6 bridesmaids, myself and my Mom that needed their hair done. Jen was able to secure another stylist and managed her time so well – that we were all done and out the door for pictures on time. It was so relaxing to have all my girls just hang out at home, chat and get all dolled up. It’s a truly special memory to me.
