From one of our clients......
Booking Kim and her team from Special Event Beauty to do the make-up and hair for my wedding was the best decision I could have made. I felt on top of the world and my bridesmaids and mother looked gorgeous too. They were so happy that I found talented beauty professionals to assist us get ready for the big day. I had no worries and trusted Kim’s team to give all of us a classic look that lasted all day and into the night. Whether you are already a customer of Kim’s or just shopping around for hair and make-up for the big day, please do yourself a favor and book Special Event Beauty. You have found the best and there is no need to look further. After the wedding I asked Kim to do my make-up for my high school reunion. That was also a huge success too and I had many compliments. Thank you Kim. It has been fun working with you and your team. I look forward to being your customer for a long time.

I can't say enough good things about Special Event Beauty! For my wedding, Kim did my makeup and Rachel did my hair. I knew from my trial that I had made the right choice. I went into my first trial with the typical pinterest photos and Kim and Rachel gave me what I asked for, but I got home and realized it just wasn't "me". I sent Kim photos where I liked how I looked in the past and explained what didn't feel right. They just got it. They knew exactly how to make me feel comfortable and after my second trial I literally was brought to tears at how pretty they made me look. It was still me, but the best version of me. The day of my wedding they arrived early and were so great with my bridal party. Some of the girls asked for hair changes a couple of times and they never flinched making sure everyone felt comfortable and happy with how they looked. My mom, family, and friends looked so great. Rachel even stayed later to wait until the photographer started photos so she could help put my veil in. My hair and makeup looked better than I could have imagined, and I felt so confident on my wedding day. Everything lasted without a touch up the whole night. Thank you so much to Special Event Beauty!

I worked with Kim at Special Event Beauty. She was incredible. I had my consultation for make-up with her. I showed her two pictures and she took the time to explain to me that one of the pictures I showed her was a very heavy make-up look and did I want that on my wedding day. I told her no, I wanted to look polished and enhance my green eyes. She did her thing and I absolutely loved it. I ended up using her, as did all of my bridesmaids, junior bridesmaid, my Aunt and my Mom for the wedding day. Everyone loved the look they got from Kim. She made everyone look flawless and gorgeous. The lashes she uses totally enhance your eyes but does not feel like a caterpillar on your eyes either. It was perfect. I cried walking down the aisle and during my ceremony and my makeup didn't wipe off, budge or move at all. And in saying that, it didn't feel heavy at all. I looked just as perfect at the end of my wedding as I did at the beginning. She was awesome to work with, was able to achieve the look all of my girls wanted with a short conversation as I was the only one who had previously done the trial. I am forever grateful to Kim for giving me the perfect look on my wedding day. It was me, but the best version of me. And I'm even more thankful that even after crying, my makeup still looked flawless.

Kerry & Maryanne were FABULOUS. I would highly recommend them for a wedding or any other event. They both are experienced professionals who put us at ease and gave us amazing advice leading up to the wedding.

Everyone looked so beautiful at our wedding because of the hard work Kerry & Maryanne put into their hair & makeup, and they were incredibly patient when (mostly the bride- me!) asked for changes :) .

Due to a scheduling mix-up, I missed my 2nd trial. Kerry went out of her way to schedule an after-hours trial with days to go before the wedding, and couldn't have been sweeter.

Hire them for your big day!!

I cannot say enough about the team at Special Event Beauty for making my wedding day so perfect, especially Kerry! I am not typically someone who likes getting her hair done, as it always feels very unnatural to me. Kerry made me feel absolutely beautiful and understood (and executed) my vision perfectly! Her presence is so loving and nurturing, and both her and Jackie, made our team of girls look absolutely STUNNING! Everyone was so happy with their hair, and we were all done ahead of schedule, which allowed me to fully relax and enjoy the day! I would hire them again in a second. Great company and great/ talented people! Thank you Kim, Kerry, and Jackie!!

My initial contact with owner Kim via inquiry was great, they were willing to place me and our wedding date on a soft hold until my trial. Lisa (make-up) and Justine (hair) were the stylists assigned to our wedding, when the time came for the trial, I had the option of two locations, Quincy or Bridgewater, I chose Bridgewater and met with the ladies. Loved my trial and felt as if I was hanging out with girlfriends for the couple hours we were there! In the weeks leading up to the wedding, I sent several emails asking advice on timing and they gave great advice on how to situate everyone. On the wedding, they came on location and handled the hair and/or makeup for 9 different ladies (bridesmaids, mothers, grandmother, cousin and flowergirl) and stayed on time with time to spare, I never once felt that they were rushing and they were able to accommodate many different hairstyles and skin tones. In the end everyone looked phenomenal and I felt like a bride should, pampered and gorgeous! :)

Special Event beauty was absolutely amazing! From my trial to my wedding day- these women made me feel confident that I would look great, but still like "myself" as a bride. They were flexible and patient and really wanted to make sure that everyone was happy with how their look came out. They were so efficient with the timeline, and are so fun and easy to talk to while they are providing services. They took care of myself, my bridesmaids, mothers/grandmothers with ease! Special Event beauty came highly recommended to me by several brides and I will continue to spread the word!

I had Jackie from Special Events Beauty as my hair and makeup stylist for my wedding in September. She also did hair and makeup for my mom and 2 bridesmaids. As soon as I had my first trial with Jackie I knew I wanted to book her. She is so sweet and so good at what she does! I had some ideas for hairstyles but literally no idea what I wanted for makeup and she had plenty of ideas and suggestions. On the day of the wedding she arrived early and ready-to-go. She had us all ahead of schedule which created a relaxed atmosphere. She is so professional and organized. My hair typically never stays styled, it usually falls out right away despite tons of bobby pins, so I was shocked and amazed when my hair stayed perfectly in place the whole day. I think I added 2 bobby pins and a little bit of hairspray one time over the 10+ hours my hair was up. The makeup for all of us was beautifully done. I can't thank her enough for making me feel and look amazing on my wedding. I highly recommended Special Events Beauty and specifically Jackie; I had the best experience with her.
