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.

We were thrilled with special event beauty. Rachel did the hair and worked tirelessly and calmly with the bride so her hair was exactly what she wanted. The style was gorgeous and elegant. She placed a flower as a finishing touch. The bride couldn't have been happier! It was truly a work of art!
Kim did the make-up. She was both pleasant, fun and a joy to work with. The airbrushed make- up was smooth and so natural looking. The lash extensions were so much fun and looked really natural as well. I had heard that some extensions fall off but thanks to Kim and her expert technique and choice of product, these stayed on all night long! In fact, the bride left hers on for the brunch the next morning!
All in all, the make-up was natural but accented the bride's features. I've never seen her eyes look so beautiful! The bride was radiant on her special day!
We recommended Kim and Rachel to our cousin for her wedding a few weeks ago. They were thrilled as well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend special event beauty to anyone!

I did a makeup trial with someone else and was not happy with the results. As my wedding date was approaching quickly, I stumbled upon Special Event and I am SO happy I did! We had Kate (makeup) and Tiffany (hair) and everyone looked spectacular. I used my own, regular hairdresser for myself and after seeing what Tiffany did for my girls, I actually wish I had used her, too! She managed each girl's unique tresses perfectly.
The make up was amazing--Kate got it just right and captured what each girl wanted perfectly. I felt flawless, without looking too "made up." There was a slight miscommunication about the start time for getting ready and both of them took it in stride and made sure we all looked fabulous without any stress. The prices were very reasonable, too. I only wish I had more excuses to get all dolled up, I would use them every time!

Kerry is fantastic! Very personable and immediately put me at ease with her easy-going personality and fun stories. I showed up to my trial with a couple of pictures, and she replicated them perfectly and took it up a notch. I was terrified of "prom hair", and she gave a truly sophisticated updo that was still "me". Hours later that day, the "do" was still holding firm!

Update: The wedding was fantastic...and EVERY girl in my party was SO pleased not only with the artistic edge that Kerry had with their hair, but also how it held up! Kerry is a professional, and very fun and easy going. A joy to hang out with the morning of the wedding!

I knew I wanted to use Kim and her team for hair and makeup on my wedding day after one of my friends booked them for her wedding the year before. Kim, Amy and the team are so professional and they make everyone look so beautiful!

For makeup, they use an airbrush technique that really sets your makeup for the whole day. (We started getting ready at 8AM and even up until I went to bed, my makeup looked great!) The makeup they use also feels light on your face and Kim does a great job highlighting the natural beauty you are :)

Also, I was feeling iffy about how I wanted to do my hair on my wedding day - even though I had done a hair/makeup trial - and Amy was so flexible about changing it, and made it even better than I was expecting. I loved it!

My mom and bridesmaids also loved the way they looked thanks to Kim and her team, and the whole process of getting ready with the girls was fun - as it should be on your wedding day!

I would definitely recommend using Kim, Amy and the Special Event Beauty team for your wedding!

I used Kerry from Special Event Beauty as the hairstylist for me, my bridesmaids, and my mom. She was fantastic! I gave her a picture of what I wanted, and she was able to recreate it easily and flawlessly. However, I was even more impressed with how she styled my bridesmaids, one of whom just described a style to her, and 2 who had no idea what they wanted, other than "up". She was able to make all 3 of them look beautiful, with 3 different hairstyles that all looked great. Also, she touched up everyone before she left. Hair stayed in place all night. Would definitely recommend!

I stumbled across Special Event Beauty on a few different wedding sites, and after a great deal of research, I continually came back to their site. From the start, I knew that I wanted a "team" that could do both hair and makeup, and that could travel to our hotel location. Aside from myself, I had seven bridesmaids, along with my mother and mother-in-law who all needed their hair and makeup done, so it was no small feat. After much thought, I decided I would go with Special Event Beauty.

After having my hair and makeup trial done with Rachel and Maryanne, I knew I had made the right choice! They were so receptive to my ideas and listened intently to exactly what I wanted. When I saw the finished product, it was amazing!

The day of the wedding Rachel and Maryanne arrived early in the morning, ready to go. They were both such a pleasure to work with, and kept the mood so fun and enjoyable. Both Rachel and Maryanne were so professional, and made all of my bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law look picture perfect!! I would recommend Special Event Beauty to anyone and everyone looking for a beauty team for their wedding and beyond!

Special Event Beauty was one of the best decisions I made during our wedding planning process. I came across the website online and was hooked by the glowing testimonials and beautiful images in their portfolio. Prior to the wedding, the hair stylist Tiffany and makeup artist Kate met with me and my mother to perform trials. We collaboratively discussed the “looks” we hoped to achieve, and after seeing the final results, I was convinced I made the right decision. Tiffany transformed my naturally curly hair into a more controlled, looser curl that gave me the elegant bridal look I was hoping for. Kate gave me a flawless natural look with the makeup that could not have been more perfect. I’m not one to wear a lot of makeup, so the natural “glowing” look she achieved made me feel comfortable and looked great in photos. On the morning of the wedding, the stylists arrived at our hotel right on time, alternated between working on my mom and I, and perfected our looks in time for our afternoon photo shoot. We also had a great time chitchatting and listening to music while we got ready, which helped me get pumped for the day ahead of us. Once we were done, I remember looking in the mirror and feeling more like a bride than ever - having achieved the look that I wanted. Feeling pretty and confident is just what every bride needs on the big day. I would recommend Tiffany and Kate of Special Event Beauty to every bride looking for the perfect look for their wedding day! These stylists are professional, talented, and great resources throughout the wedding planning process for helping you determine exactly what you’re looking for. If you’ve stumbled upon this review, check out the Special Event Beauty website and look at their portfolio. It’s what hooked me and made my hair/makeup vendor selection an easy one!

I had a very large wedding party (12 bridesmaids + 2 moms + 1 bride) - they handled everyone with such ease and kept the day light and fun! They did a fantastic job on everyone's hair and make-up. You won't go wrong booking these ladies - they are very professional when it comes to timing, responsiveness, feedback, but then also are extremely fun to work with!

Special Event Beauty was recommended to me by my sister in law after they did her hair and makeup for her friends wedding. The Bride looked absolutely stunning and I knew right away that I wanted that same "Glow" for my special day! I contacted Special Event Beauty right away and Kim, the lead makeup artist and owner, responded quickly and was so sweet! From my trial to my big day she made me feel so comfortable and pretty.

Not only was I lucky enough to have Kim do makeup for myself and others in my bridal party, but she also was able to bring in her awesome hairstylist Amy who did all of my Bridesmaids hair! The girls hair came out perfect and lasted all night long! Everyone keeps saying how beautiful their hair was!

My favorite part of getting ready was when Kim looked at me, starting to tear up, and said "that is it - you are a Bride"! She truly loves what she does and she is so good at it too! Kim gave me that bridal "glow" I was looking for! I looked and felt beautiful all night long and would recommend this team to any Bride!

Not only do I love the timeless classic look that Special Event Beauty creates, but I love the fact that they cater to Brides and Bridal Parties. They provide all of your hair and makeup service needs from airbrushing to false lashes, and they even come to you all at no extra charge! I am so glad that I had Special Event Beauty there to help me and my girls look our best for my special day!

We used Lisa from Special Event Beauty for my sister's wedding. She was wonderful!!! Whenever I emailed her with questions/concerns prior to the wedding, she always responded to me in a timely manner. She was always prompt (for the trail, and wedding day) and did such an amazing job with all our make up. It was the first time we had all experienced having our make up airbrushed and we just looked flawless. They also include in their make up price the ability to have fake eyelashes. We all took advantage of this and just loved that little extra it gave to our look! I would highly recommend Special Event Beauty, especially Lisa. She was extremely professional and just a pleasure to work with.

Amy and Lisa were nothing short of amazing for my wedding. Right from my trial I knew they would be fun to work with- they are funny, easy going and friendly. I loved the work they did at my trial and immediately hired them. About 3 weeks before my wedding I had a change of heart about my hair and frantically emailed Amy about what I should do. She responded that she was positive she could make my vision come true even though I couldn't find any pictures with the hair style I wanted. Long story short- wedding day rolled around and she absolutely nailed it. My hair was exactly how I envisioned it, I was absolutely delighted :) I got so many compliments on my hair and make up.

On a side note- the girls helped my mom clean up our kitchen as everyone was getting ready. So sweet and considerate. I cannot recommend them more! You will get everything you paid for and more!!!

I booked Tiffany (hair) and Lisa (make-up) for my trial and wedding. They are absolutely amazing at what they do!! They were so responsive to what I like and don't like during the trial, and took the time to really doll me up. On the wedding way, they came on time at 5am and 6am, ready to work their magic. Lisa's airbrush make-up and faux lash application were flawless. Both felt very light and very natural. The colors that Lisa used on my eyes, cheeks, brows, and lips perfectly highlighted my facial features. And she even gave me a tube of lip gloss for touch-up throughout the long day. Tiffany miraculously transformed my short shoulder-length hair into a beautiful updo of luscious curls. She didn't even bat her eyes when I told her that day that I have to wear a traditional Vietnamese headdress, which meant changing my hair style from what we had originally agreed on during the trial. It took her less than 10 seconds to think up of a new hairstyle that would complement the headdress. The resulting updo was just perfection. They were both wonderful and so good at what they do. I highly recommend Lisa and Tiffany to do your make-up and hair!!

The colors that Lisa used on my eyes, cheeks, brows, and lips perfectly highlighted my facial features. And she even gave me a tube of lip gloss for touch-up throughout the long day. Tiffany miraculously transformed my short shoulder-length hair into a beautiful updo of luscious curls. She didn't even bat her eyes when I told her that day that I have to wear a traditional Vietnamese headdress, which meant changing my hair style from what we had originally agreed on during the trial. It took her less than 10 seconds to think up of a new hairstyle that would complement the headdress. The resulting updo was just perfection. They were both wonderful and so good at what they do. I highly recommend Lisa and Tiffany to do your make-up and hair!! Read less

Hiring Special Events Beauty was by far the easiest most stress free thing I did. If you are looking for professional, pleasant and highly skilled women to make you look and feel gorgeous on your wedding day, this is your team. The girls traveled to my hotel in Newport Rhode Island. They were early, all set up, and ready to get started, making it easy for me and my bridesmaids to relax and not stress about time. I had been to their studio a few months prior for my trial and had a wonderful experience. I didn't feel rushed, they took their time with me, and tried whatever I wanted with my hair so I was sure to leave there that day confident about my wedding day updo. My bridesmaids did not have trials. They simply showed a picture or two of what kind of style they were looking for and Rachel gave it to them. All five of my girls looked amazing and better than the pictures they showed Rachel. I appreciated the fact that Rachel would give us her input as far as what we wanted and what she thought would look the best on each specific individual. It was very helpful. Whatever we wanted or needed, they made it happen.

I was so pleased and totally happy with my makeup and my bridesmaids makeup! Let me just say, I am in my thirties but felt like I looked like I was in my twenties! Absolutely amazing! Kim did everyone's makeup and I cannot say enough about how fabulous everyone looked. Even my mom, who was hesitant about getting her makeup done, was walking around with a huge smile the rest of the day after Kim finished her makeup. I had so many of my guests approach me at the wedding, even some of the staff at the venue, asking me who did our hair and makeup.

I highly recommend SEB. The price is right and the time and effort they put into you and your day is more than 100%. They went above and beyond to make my day everything I wanted it to be, and I know they will for you too. Make your wedding planning easy, hire SEB and check hair and makeup off the list!!

I highly recommend Special Event Beauty. I was a bit on the late side booking my hair and makeup. I was calling all over the place to find someone who could travel to my wedding site to do my hair and makeup, and I kept getting turned down because there was not enough notice. The owner of Special Event Beauty was so nice and understanding and wanted to do everything she could to make sure I had someone who could travel to do my hair and makeup, and she made it happen in such short notice! I was so thankful! Noel McKinnon did my hair and makeup. Noel is the best! I highly recommend her. She did my hair and makeup trial, and gave me lots of ideas. She suggested I have my seamstress make a flower for my hair out of my left over dress fabric, so it matched perfectly. what a great idea! She showed up early to do hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids at my wedding on June 8, 2013. All the bridesmaids raved about how great their hair looked, and it lasted through the entire evening! She bought me my favorite lipgloss to wear for the wedding. My hair and makeup looked perfect all evening, and I got so many compliments. She is professional, on time, and great at what she does! It was so much fun to work with her. She was always in contact with me before the wedding, which was great! She gave me tips on hair and makeup. She is so easy to get in touch with, wich I really appreciated. You cannot go wrong with Special Event Beauty and Noel McKinnon. I would use them again! I cannot say enough great things about them!

Lisa (makeup) and Amy (hair) were awesome. They were easy to work with and arrived precisely on time. They finished myself, my bridesmaids and my mom earlier than I expected so we even had time get in extra photographs. I received several compliments on my updo (which stayed put all night) and my makeup felt so natural I hardly even noticed it was there. I would absolutely recommend Special Event Beauty to future brides!

I knew that I wanted the same place to do both my hair and make up for the wedding to make things easy. Having artists who were really good at what they did was really important because these were going to be pictures that I would look at the rest of my life and I wanted to make sure I looked good in them. The SPE website had lots of impressive pictures. I liked Special Event Beauty right away because of how responsive they were when I emailed about their services. I did a trial with both a local salon and Special Event Beauty. The trial with the local salon was nice but nothing compared to SPE. I had to drive down to Bridgewater for the trial, which was an hour and a half drive and totally worth it. Amy did my hair and Lisa did my make up. It was nice to stay home and have them come to me. No stress with having to run around to a salon. I have stick straight hair that comes half way down my back. My husband to be wanted me to have really curly hair for the wedding. Well Amy painstakingly curled my hair for an hour and a half and it was amazing!!! Amy did the airbrush make up and made me look beautiful and not overdone. The day of the wedding they were right on time (a few minutes early which is good for a bride on her wedding day) and were so relaxed with me and my bridesmaid. We all looked so good. My husband can't stop talking about how much he loved my hair. I don't think that there is any other hair dresser out there that would take the time that Amy did to do my hair. I can't recommend Amy and Lisa enough. They were so awesome and talented.

Special Event Beauty is the best. I could not have had a better experience on my wedding day. Kerry (hair) and Lisa (makeup) were amazing. They arrived right on time in the morning and did myself, my four bridesmaids and my mother. My bridesmaids who were a little skeptical at the beginning, immediately felt at ease and were thrilled with the results. They were sure their hair would be all out in a couple of hours and their makeup wouldn't stay put, but it lasted right through the whole night and they still looked gorgeous. I never felt prettier in my life. My whole wedding party along with my mother, looked and felt beautiful and kept receiving compliments from everyone. I couldn't have been happier. Not only were Kerry and Lisa wonderful, but they were also so much fun to be with. All my bridesmaids want to use them when they get married. They even helped us when we were getting ready and then did touch ups again before we headed out the door. I just cannot say enough good things about them.

These ladies were wonderful. They were so flexible with scheduling my trials and when we added people at the last second. Maryanne did a wonderful job with the airbrushed makeup and even convinced my mom to wear falsies (so necessary). Rachel did an amazing job on my hair. I changed my mind at the last possible second and made Rachel change from our planned down and to the side look to an updo. The woman worked magic. I am so happy with the way my hair and makeup came out and it’s definitely one of the things I was most worried about since I never do anything with my hair and don’t wear makeup.

I loved working with Maryanne (makeup) and Rachel (hair) for my wedding. They are both incredibly personable and total professionals. They arrived early and worked through 6 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, 1 aunt and me - all in time for a 2:00 ceremony. Everyone looked perfect! They were willing to make adjustments to get everything the way each girl wanted. I also decided I wanted two looks - softer makeup and loose curls worn down for the ceremony and then more dramatic makeup with an updo for the reception. Maryanne and Rachel met us at the hotel in between the ceremony and reception and had me transformed in record time. I was thrilled with both and recommend them highly!

Amy was wonderful with everyone's hair and did one of my bridesmaids up-do 3 times because Amy as a professional did not like the way it looked. The fact that she took extra time with EVERYONE was just wonderful! Maryanne has a true talent with her makeup skills. The fact that she was able to make someone with severe rosacea look even a flawless all night long was very impressive. These two ladies are the best and I am recommending them to all future brides that I know are getting married. Thank you Amy and Maryanne for making my day easy and ahead of schedule.

Oh my goodness, I love these ladies! Rachel and Maryanne did such a great job making me and my bridal party feel beautiful. Maryanne made me look so natural, just an enhanced version of myself. It was perfect. I have seen other brides turn out like clowns, but not with Maryanne. Rachel even trimmed my hair two weeks before the wedding at her salon to make sure it was perfect for the wedding. I am African American and have very difficult hair, but with Rachel it was no problem! Everything was perfect. I would hire them again if ever I find the need to get my hair and makeup professionally done.

We had Special Event Beauty do the hair and makeup for my wedding. Noel was the makeup artist and Amy was the hair stylist. They came to the house early so we didn't have to worry, and took care of all the preparations for the day. They did such an amazing job. Some of my bridesmaids had gotten their hair done from other hairdressers and were not satisfied, so Amy re-did their hair and loved it. My hair came out exactly how I had wanted it and I was so happy. Noel did an amazing job with the makeup too! Although we only had a couple of people signed up to do makeup, she added more people in that day without a blink of an eye. Everything was perfect and I have never felt prettier. Thank you so much for everything!!!

I Hired Special Event Beauty for my July Wedding.. They provided Hair and Makeup services. I was so impressed with both Kim and Kerry. They were wonderful! My hair was beautiful and it stayed in all night ( throughout heavy dancing and heat) My makeup was amazing - it was exactly what we had discussed and it looked even better than my trial. It stayed on all day and night. I did not have to touch up my hair or make up once throughout the day. They were both really sweet and helpful through the entire day. I would 100% recommend them without a doubt!

Thanks Special Event Beauty

Noel did my hair and make up for my wedding in July 2012. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and so lovely. Her work is of a very high standard and she is attentive to your preferences and also flexible. Noel was extremely professional, great at communicating, made me look and feel a million dollars and also went way above and beyond helping make my wedding day really special. Thanks Noel!

Noel is amazing! She did my wedding in Cohasset Ma on June 30th. From the moment I met her at my trial I knew she would be a great fit for myself and my group of girls! She 100% knows what she is doing and will turn your "everyday look" and enhance it to make you look your MOST beautiful, and that is exactly how myself and all my girls felt on my wedding day.

She is incredibly professional, rapid responses on emails and phone calls, and can control a room of rowdy women!

I would HIGHLY recommend Noel for another event - I wish I knew another bride right now to give out her info! You will not be disappointed with Noel & SEB!

Kim and her team are exceptional! From the moment I contacted her, she put me at ease after my other MUA had cancelled 2 months before the wedding. She instantly became my "Fairy Make-Up Mother". I did not have time to do a trial because of our schedules however she came early on the day of the wedding and made sure to test things out first.
I love everything about the make-up she did and all of my girls looked flawless! I can't wait for our pictures to come out and relive everything again!

Whether you want to look like you're ready for a Hollywood Premiere or just a little more enhanced than you're everyday look, Special Event Beauty will make you look amazing!

Thanks Kim and Lisa!!!

The ladies from Special Events Beauty did hair and makeup for 6 bridesmaids, a bride, two mothers, and a flower girl for my cousins wedding. The ladies came right to the hotel and were right on time. They were both not only talented, professional, but they were also easy going and fun. Kerry and Kim made everyone look gorgeous, they really captured each persons individual style. They were also ahead of schedule, leaving plenty of time for any touch ups. Being a hairdresser myself I was very pleased with the quality of their work and also their relaxed easy going personalities. I would recommend them to any Bride who would like to look beautiful without stressing!

We had special event beauty for my sisters wedding last weekend and they did an amazing job. Amy Topham did our hair and Noel Mckinnon did our makeup. The girls did exactly what I wanted and I loved the way I looked. My sister look absolutly beautiful. They kept making sure the bride was happy comfortable and fed throughout the day. They were so sweet and I would use them again anyday!

Noel airbrushed my makeup and used fake eyelashes. It was stunning. Amy copied what I wanted for my hair and it looked better than the picture I brought.

Special Event Beauty did my wedding hair and makeup as well as the hair and makeup for many of my bridesmaids. They were very nice and accomodating during my trial. I did not know exactly what I wanted for makeup, but after a few questions regarding my style, Maryanne was able to create exactly what I wanted but could not articulate! I tried two different styles of hair with Rachel and even changed my mind to do some sort of a combination of the two styles a weeks prior to my wedding. Rachel really knew what I was going for and did a wonderful job!

During the day of the wedding, they were so patient and outgoing which is important on such a stressful day!Rachel re-did hair after a bridesmaid wanted a few changes. Maryanne did an excellent job on all of our makeup. They are both wonderful people and I loved the way I looked. I would recommend them to anyone!

Noel made me feel so incredibly beautiful on my wedding day in Boston on 4/21/2012. I LOVED the way my hair and makeup turned out (and so did my husband!). Noel was super accommodating with scheduling a trial run, as well as being receptive to what I was thinking about, but also making some really good suggestions. It's evident that she cares about what she does and really only wants to make the client happy in the end. I didn't have a bridal party, so I was the only one who had my hair and makeup done, and I never felt bad for not having more services or things booked. It was perfect. On the wedding day Noel arrived early and got to work- she made sure I kept hydrated and stopped to eat a snack as well before the ceremony. My mom actually dropped by and had forgotten to pack her curling set and Noel offered to do her hair and/or let her borrow her curling iron and tools if needed. I felt totally comfortably with her and would recommend her to anyone. You can't go wrong with Noel!

I was absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day. Is there anything else to say??? Yes! So was my mother, my new mother-in-law and my honor attendants. Maryanne and Rachel came to my house right on time and set up shop in our dining room. They operated like a finely tuned machine and had all of us ready to go early. I highly recommend Special Event Beauty.

I booked my hair and makeup with Noel from Special Event Beauty. I had my trial a few months before the wedding and Noel listened to what I was looking for and styled my hair perfectly! I asked for a few adjustments with my makeup, and she was changed those things more than willingly. It was very evident that her goal was to make me happy, to make me feel comfortable and beautiful. She was easy to talk with and very nice. On my wedding day she arrived early, and we got started right away. She helped my bridesmaids with their hair even though she was only hired to work with me. They were trying to do a 1940's style and she took time to explain how to make it easier, let them use her comb and even gave them bobby pins. She was attentitve to me and when I was getting stressed she talked quietly and encouraged me and helped get the room to quiet down, but never overstepped. She was amazingly helpful and I can't imagine how I would have gotten through that preparation without her.

And my hair and makeup came out perfect! And stayed perfect all night. She was able to take a general description of what I thought I wanted and the feel of the wedding and create a hairdo and makeup style that reflected me and my style. And she even gave me the lipstick I was wearing, hairspray and oil absorbing sheets.

Book with Noel if you need hair and makeup. You won't regret it.

Amy did my hair and the wedding party's hair for my December 10th wedding this year. Maryanne did all of our makeup. They both did a fantastic job. We all looked liked prettier versions of our everyday selves-nobody was over done, and nobody was too plain. Everyone looked just perfect.

As they were all packed up and ready to leave (I just got into my dress and one of my curls got pulled straight in the process)I came out and asked Amy if she could fix it really quick. She had to go into her bag and put on her curling iron again and fied it. It doesn't sound like much but to a bride who is nervous and wants everything perfect-that was so appreciated. They both cared so much to make sure everyone was happy with their results which is so important.

If anyone in the south shore area is looking for vendors for hair and makeup this is the place! They were so nice, funny, and literally did a perfect job on everyone!!

When researching hair & makeup vendors, Special Event Beauty was a name that came up time and time again. There's a reason for this - they are fabulous. I worked with Deborah Marcinowski (makeup) and Tiffany Russell (hair) and I can't say enough wonderful things about them. After an initial trial at Deborah's house, I was confident that they were the best pick for hair/makeup for myself and my 5 bridesmaids. Both Deborah and Tiffany were very responsive over email/text, provided amazing service on my wedding day, and offered a great value. I wholeheartedly recommend Special Event Beauty to any soon to be blushing bride.

Noel M. was amazing!
She showed up on time and ready to go the morning of my wedding, which to a bride was a huge relief! Her fun attitude and professionalism set the mood for the morning in a suite filled with anxious women.
She truely calmed me down and set my tone for the day that everything would be great...she even gave me a weather update about how wonderful it was outside!
She was everything we needed, and even allergy meds for my MOH.
I could not imagine having used anyone but Noel for my big day.
She was outstanding and I would absolutely use her again in the future...
no questions asked.
Thank you Noel...you made me look like the princess I felt like that day.

Meghan Cotton was an absolute joy to work with and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She made me look and feel absolutely stunning on my wedding day. My daily make-up routine consists of a little Bare Escentuals in the morning. I never wear lipstick or anything on my eyes. For my wedding, I wanted my make-up to be special, but I didn't want to look overdone - I wanted to have a clean, fresh, elegant look. I was really nervous about finding an artist that could find that balance that I was looking for. I live in Boston but got married in Northampton, so I originally started my make-up artist search out in western MA. I went to three different salons for trials, and wasn't happy with any of them. On a whim, I decided to look into places in Boston that might travel out for my wedding day. And that's when I found Special Event Beauty and Meghan! I was so excited when I was done with my trial - it was exactly what I was looking for.

We spent over an hour together at my trial. We began by looking at some sample pictures that I brought, and she listened to what I was looking for and what I hadn't liked about the trials I'd had at other places. Then she worked her magic! The airbrush make-up is amazing. It covered my flaws and made my skin look exquisite, but it didn't feel or look heavy. One of the things that I most enjoyed about working with Meghan is how well she listens and how that translates into her attention to detail. She really understood what I was looking for and found a balance between my comfort and her expertise. Eyeliner for example - I never wear it and didn't think I wanted to - but she suggested that we do a really thin line to make my eyes pop. It made such a difference. Knowing that she was listening and understood what I was looking for made me trust her, and gave me confidence that I would feel my best on my wedding day. We also went through about 20 different lipsticks before finding the perfect one! She even ordered one for me for my wedding day.

On the day of, Meghan showed up early, kept to our schedule, and was just a wonderful person to have around while my family and I got ready. She is a gifted artist, professional yet sweet and easygoing, and does really wonderful work. We arranged for Meghan to stay through the ceremony in case touch-ups were needed. Even with the emotional ceremony, the make-up was flawless - all I needed was a lipstick touch-up.

Meghan - you're amazing! Thank you so much for being a part of my wedding day. And for all you brides out there - I highly recommend Meghan and Special Event Beauty!

I worked with Amy and Lisa for my wedding hair and makeup. They were both wonderful to work with. They were both very easy going and easy to work with. From my initial meeting with them I instantly felt comfortable. They did 7 girls hair and makeup for my wedding and everyone looked beautiful! No matter what each girl asked for they were able to understand what they were looking for and make it look great. One of my bridesmaids was so happy with her hair and makeup she will be using them for her wedding next fall. I would highly recommend Amy and Lisa...you'll be in good hands!

I used Special Event Beauty for my September 24,2011 wedding. Noel did my hair and makeup as well as my bridesmaids' makeup. Tiffany did my bridesmaids' hair. I thought they did an amazing job! They showed up right on time and were very pleasant and easy to get along with. My trial with Noel was great, but I ended up wanting a different look for my wedding day. Noel was able to acheive the exact look I wanted. I loved the airbrush makeup. It made my skin look flawless, and it lasted the whole night. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and so did my bridesmaids. We got comments all night long. I had a great wedding which I think was made even better because I felt good with the way I looked. I would recommend special event beauty to anyone!

Hiring Noel to do makeup at my wedding was the single best decision I made. My flower girl called her the "miracle worker" and she was seriously was. First she did beautiful makeup on me, two mothers and 3 bridesmaids who all have very different styles. Everyone was thrilled with how they looked! Noel was able to match makeup to everyone’s own style. She is more than a makeup artist though, she made sure not only my makeup looked great but that my dress, veil, hair was perfect before I walked down the aisle. She also sewed a missing button on my flower girl’s dress, tied their bows and was calm whenever any little snafu came up. If you want to look gorgeous on your wedding day call and ask to hire Noel, I can not say enough wonderful things about her.

I worked with Amy and Kim for my hair and make-up for my wedding. They went above and beyond not only on the day of the wedding, but leading up to the big day when I requested more than one trial because I changed my mind on how I wanted to look on my wedding day. They are SO customer service oriented and take such great care of their clients. They are both super friendly and just overall incredibly nice people. I would recommend them to anybody looking for AMAZING hair and make-up for a FABULOUS price and an overall FANTASTIC experience.

Special Event Beauty could not have been a more perfect choice for my wedding day for a list of reasons! Of all the services a bride has to schedule for her wedding day, the make up artist was the most stressful for me! I wear very little make up on a regular basis so I was fearful of not looking like myself on my wedding day. I have freckles so I was nervous they would be caked over with make up...not the case at all!
I met with Kim for my trial and booked immediately! Everything was perfect. I even had the fake lashes put on but because they are individual lashes and not a strip like most artists stick on...it was the perfect touch!
Kim also made up my bridesmaids and catered to the look they wanted. Everyone was beyond pleased and compared to some of the other prices I looked at...was very reasonable! Plus the lashes are included where other make up artists charged $25 extra for them.
I really cannot say enough about Kim and her team.

Noel was the makeup artist for my bridesmaids and I on my August 26th wedding and seriously, I could not have been happier!! I knew from the day I met her at my trial that not only would she do an absolutely FABULOUS job on my makeup, but that she would make a great addition to my big day, and I certainly was not wrong!! She's the most beautiful person inside and out and everyone from my bridal party, to my mom, my new mother in law, and my hairstylist fell in love with her! I've already received so many compliments on the way that my makeup looked both in person and in the pictures (which is also super important!) I would recommend her to anyone asking for an amazing makeup artist (and I'm pretty sure she would be amazing at hair too!) Thanks Noel for making my day even more perfect :)

Kim was absolutely wonderful to work with during the time leading up to the wedding. She always made herself available. She was patient with my questions and always responded to me quickly.

I was fortunate enough to be able to work with Kim, as she did my make-up at a friend's wedding a couple of years ago. I loved her work and knew that I wanted her for my wedding. I typically don't wear a lot of makeup. She kept the makeup natural for my wedding, but added just a little bit of glamour, which is exactly what I wanted. Everyone in my wedding party was extremely happy with her work. She does a great job of reading people and finding out how they want to look. Everyone's makeup looked so natural and lasted the entire day and night.

NOEL IS AMAZING! I couldn't have asked for anything more. I stumbled upon Noel a few months before my wedding and this proves everything happens for a reason. She was so helpful, kind and accommodating to my needs. After a trial and 2 hours of her time and patience, I knew I was in for a real treat. On the day of my wedding she showed up with all of her gear and was such a wonderful person to have as part of the day. She made everyone look beautiful and didn't miss a single detail. She is simply fantastic! A good person and a FANTASTIC makeup/hair artist!

I hired Special Event Beauty do the hair and makeup for both my rehearsal dinner and wedding. Noel and Kerry did the hair and makeup for the rehearsal dinner. Kim and Kerry did the hair and makeup for the wedding. All of the ladies were absolutely wonderful! I am so glad I hired them.

We were running late the day of our rehearsal. Noel and Kerry were great at keeping everyone calm (even my mom!). And getting everything finished up quickly. They were both such fun and calming people to have around.

The day of the wedding, Kim and Kerry showed up bright and early. They even brought me a gift! They were such fun to have around all day. In addition to myself, I had a huge bridal party, two moms, and two flower girls who all needed hair and makeup and all have very different looks. Kim and Kerry made everyone look gorgeous. I highly recommend them!

Noel did my hair and my bridesmaid's makeup for my wedding. She was AMAZING. Not only was her makeup and hair doing skills spot on but she was such a fun and lively presence while we were getting ready. She was right on time with a smile on her face even though the poor girl had to be there at 5:15am! I would recommend Noel for hair and makeup in a heart beat and I may even have her doll me up again just for a night out with the girls. She's a great person I'm glad I got to meet her!

I had Rachel for hair and Maryanne for makeup - could not have been happier with both! They were super flexible throughout the entire process. I ended up having 2 hair trials because I didn't know what I wanted and Rachel was always up for anything. On my wedding morning she ended up doing 2 hairstyles on me because I didn't like the first and her only comment was "That's why I wanted to start you early!" Maryanne was great - I changed my mind between our trial and the wedding day, and what I ended up with for my wedding makeup was absoluetely perfect. They had smiles on their faces all morning - they were never stressed, and all of my bridesmaids and the mothers looked gorgeous. Everyone was really happy with their services.

I hired Noel to do my hair and makeup, and I am very happy I did! Not only Noel do a great job with my hair and makeup during my wedding weekend, but she also proved to be helpful in a few unexpected ways. She does fantastic work and has a wonderful personality. I highly recommend her!

I planned my Boston wedding from my home in Philadelphia. Planning an out of town wedding was not easy, especially since I would only be in Boston for 3-4 days total during my engagement. I booked a trial with Noel after reading rave reviews. I was in town for about 24 hours that weekend, and she was able to fit me in no problem. She did a great job with the trial, and I hired her on the spot. She was always quick to respond with any questions I emailed her with in the weeks leading up to the wedding.

The night before our wedding, we had a Chinese banquet in Chinatown. Noel came to my hotel and did my hair and makeup. I wore a cheongsam that night. Noel came up with a great hairstyle that mimicked part of the pattern of my dress. My hair and makeup looked great and lasted all night.

The morning of my wedding, Noel showed up bright and early, ready to go. She did a wonderful job with my hair and makeup, and had no problem making small changes when I decided I wanted something a little different. We finished a bit early, so she even helped me work on the sash for my dress. I had purchased some fabric flowers that I wanted to pin to my sash. When I attempted to arrange the flowers, I couldn't get them to look right. Noel offered to give it a try, and she nailed the look I was going for. On top of that, Noel was the one who was able to properly get me into my dress after failed attempts by my mom and maid of honor (zipper issues). Thank goodness she was there! I joked with Noel that I'll never forget her since she'll be in so many of my "getting ready" photos. When it was all said and done, my hair and makeup looked exactly the way I'd pictured it in my head. My hair and makeup lasted all day, which is impressive given that we had to be outside for a couple hours in 90+ degree heat.

Maryanne from Special Event Beauty was absolutely wonderful. From the wedding trial to the wedding day, Maryanne was very great to work with. She was very responsive to any questions I had. On the day of the wedding, Maryanne was on time and ready to get right to work. I had 6 bridesmaids, myself and my mother have their makeup done. Everybody was ecstatic with how their makeup came out and received tons of compliments all night. My mom was nervous about having her makeup done and not looking like herself, but was extremely happy with how her makeup came out and how Maryanne listened to what she wanted. My mom looked stunning and was very pleased with her decision to have her makeup done. I absolutely loved my makeup as well. All of our makeup stayed on all night, even through lots of sweating at an outdoor July wedding with hard dancing. I would recommend Special Event Beauty to any bridal party.

Could not have asked for better!!! Noel and Rachel were amazing. Bottom line is that they saved my wedding!!! I had another vendor blow it and discovered, just as they were finishing up our hair and makeup, that my florist thought my wedding was the following day and was not even in the state. Despite a meltdown on my part, Noel and Rachel took over to my great thanks. Noel was on the phone with my vendor while Rachel dealt with me (my makeup didn't even run!!!). My family credits them with literally saving the wedding as Noel was able to make me "okay" with the situation.

Not only are they amazing hair and makeup artists, but also amazing people! I already has my one single bridesmaid tell me that she is going to use them when she gets married :)

Noel and Lisa made up myself, nine bridesmaids, and my mother on my wedding day. We had an earlier wedding, so the ladies needed to arrive early in the morning. They were right on time and were efficient, yet relaxed throughout the entire morning. After several hours of hair and makeup, we all looked gorgeous and were right on time to snap some pictures and head to the church. It was so convenient to have the services done in the comfort of our own home and was a great experience overall! I would definitely recommend Special Event Beauty to any bride who wants a stress-free wedding morning!

I had Amy and Noel do my hair and make up respectively for my June 24, 2011 wedding at Indian Pond Country Club. Of all the planning in the wedding, this was the thing I was most nervous about because of prior bad updos and crazy make up for prior formal events. As soon as I met Amy and Noel at the trial, they put me right at ease. They were prepared, as they had me send them ideas for hair and makeup way in advance of the trial. The trial went seemlessly and the hair and makeup was everything I could have hoped for. When the big day came, not only did my hair and makeup come out beautiful, but they also took care of : 6 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and 2 flower girls. They kept things light and fun the day of, despite a few in room drink spills (sorry!!) . They accompanied us to the venue to do touch ups as well and even tied a bow or two for the flowergirls and bridesmaids! I cannot tell you how happy I was with their attention to detail, their warm nature, and professionalism. I would hire them again without reservation and would recommend them fully ! Thanks again !

My hair and makeup were the least stressful part of my wedding thanks to Noel! Noel did my hair and make up for my engagement pictures and on my wedding day. I truly felt beautiful on both occasions. She was always very quick to answer my emails (and trust me I loaded her inbox with my emails)! Noel and Tiffany arrived at our hotel the day of my wedding at 6:00 AM to ensure they would have plenty of time to do makeup and hair for myself, my three bridesmaids, mom, sister in law and mother in law for my 2:00 wedding. Tiffany did the girls and moms’ hair and she was amazing!! My bridesmaids all had no idea how they wanted their hair and Tiffany worked with each of them so they all had beautiful updo's which they all loved. My aunt was so impressed after seeing everyone’s up do’s that she approached Tiffany to have her hair straightened. Tiffany was surprisingly able to fit her in even though it was unplanned. Noel did everyone’s makeup and really worked with each girl to make sure she was bringing out everyone’s best features. I wish she could do my makeup everyday! We were all so impressed with Noel and Tiffany and had so much fun with them (not to mention they made us all look beautiful). They truly made it feel like they were just two additional friends of ours hanging out with us the morning of my wedding. Thank you Noel and Tiffany!

If I could give Noel McKinnon of Special Event Beauty higher than an A+ I would. I would give her A++++

Noel was exceptional and went over and above what any makeup and hairstylist would do. The first indication that Noel was going to be great was my trial. She spent 6 hours with me for one price. She kept in touch with me after I booked her and even sent me products for my hair to use up and until the wedding (free of charge) I have really thin hair so she wanted to see if the products she sent would work and they did.

The day of the wedding she was on time. She is so fun to work with. I had asked her if she wanted to stay for the wedding and be a guest and she was happy to do so. I did not expect her to again go above and beyond the way she did. She stayed with me and right next to me for prior photos and then again after the ceremony for after photos. She made sure I looked wonderful for each picture, that my dress looked great and helped anywhere she could. I was so happy with the way she treated me, she made me feel special, beautiful and that it was my day. If you want someone to do your hair and makeup you must ask for Noel.

Noel was exceptional and went over and above what any makeup and hairstylist would do. The first indication that Noel was going to be great was my trial. She spent 6 hours with me for one price. She kept in touch with me after I booked her and even sent me products for my hair to use up and until the wedding (free of charge) I have really thin hair so she wanted to see if the products she sent would work and they did.

The day of the wedding she was on time. She is so fun to work with. I had asked her if she wanted to stay for the wedding and be a guest and she was happy to do so. I did not expect her to again go above and beyond the way she did. She stayed with me and right next to me for prior photos and then again after the ceremony for after photos. She made sure I looked wonderful for each picture, that my dress looked great and helped anywhere she could. I was so happy with the way she treated me, she made me feel special, beautiful and that it was my day. If you want someone to do your hair and makeup you must ask for Noel. Read less

My wedding was 5/29/2011 and the day was amazing thanks to Noel from Special Event Beauty! I have never looked so good, but more importantly, she made me feel beautiful on the inside too!

I was only planning on hiring Noel for my hair, but she impressed me so much at the hair trial, I decided to hire her for makeup too! At the trial we totally clicked and were completely on the same page about my hair and the schedule in the morning and everything else. She was so patient with my mother, who was also getting a trial and has hard-to-manage hair. Noel was also just really fun and kind! She gave me advice about makeup and air-brushing and did a little sample run of that, too! I loved it so much and knew I'd picked the right woman for my hair *and* makeup!

During the months before my wedding, Noel never forgot about me and always made me feel like a priority. My mom had mentioned during the trial that she needed a hair comb, and Noel searched for one for her in New York. When Noel didn't find the perfect one, she handmade one instead! She also made sure to find lip glosses in the perfect shades for me and to bring to the wedding hair thickening powder for the top of my head! And as we'd discussed at the trial, she created a bunch of pins for my hair with pearls on them.

Noel was a blessing to have around on my wedding day. She showed up right on time even though it was 5:00 am and was as kind and pleasant as ever. She did hair for my bridesmaids and my mom, made my hair look fantastic, touched up makeup for many of them with no extra charge, and made my makeup look better than ever before. I was expecting to look great because I knew Noel was talented, but I didn't expect to look THAT good.

But the reason I am most glad about hiring Noel for my wedding has nothing to do with her jewelry-making skills, awesome sense of humor, or her hair and makeup talents. I am most grateful for Noel's heart. The morning of my wedding, I got really upset, not about hair or napkin colors or crying flower girls, but about my weight, something I've struggled with for years. My maid-of-honor was trying to comfort me to no avail when Noel stepped in. She talked her way into the bathroom where I'd barricaded myself and she made me feel so much better. Before she spoke to me, I felt so ugly. But because of what Noel told me that morning, and her genuine kindness and warmth, I walked down the aisle feeling like the absolute most beautiful version of myself - inside and out.

Noel did my makeup on my wedding day and she did such a spectacular job. After having several different makeup trials that made me look scary/80's I was so happy to have found Noel. On my wedding day she made me feel so calm with the fact that she was calm. She also did my mom, sister and grandmother and they all looked incredible. I highly recommend Noel if you want to look your very best (but look like yourself) on your wedding day!

Everyone's hair stayed in place the entire wedding and everyone that got makeup done stayed the entire night! It is awesome that they come right to you so you don't have to worry about getting everyone to and from a salon! It made the day more special!

The girls at Special Event Beauty were amazing! Not only do they do a great job on hair and makeup, they go above and beyond. They make for a fun atmosphere and definitely put me at ease. Having them come to the room we were getting ready in made life so much easier. I had 8 bridesmaids, a flower girl, my mom, and myself and they got everyone done no problem; and everyone looked great. They even helped organize the day. I highly recommend them!

Amy and Marianne did hair and makeup for myself, my wedding party, my mother and mother-in-law, and a few other relatives thrown in the mix. The whole experience was fantastic. They worked easily together, and kept the flow of the day moving smoothly. I was able to remain stress free, mostly due to their professionalism and calm demeanors. Our hair and makeup came out better than I could have imagined, even though I had gone to a trial session with the two of them beforehand! I would highly recommend Amy and Marianne for not only weddings, but for any special event!

Noel is absolutely amazing! I met Noel 5 months before my wedding for a trial. I kinda of knew what I wanted to do with my hair but, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my makeup. Noel was great and gave me a ton of suggestion on what she thought would look best on me. She was so personable and we chatted the entire time. I ended up booking her for my wedding that day.

Leading up to the wedding Noel checked in with me to make sure everything was going fine and to see if I needed anything. Even on the wedding day she checked to see if I need her to get anything on her way over. My bridesmaids both raved about her. They both live out of state and didn't get into Boston until the day before the wedding, so they weren't sure what to do with their hair. Noel showed them both hairstyles that she thought would look great for them. She made us all look wonderful and we all felt beautiful. She was amazing to work with on the wedding day and an amazing person overall. I would highly recommended her to anyone. She truly went above and beyond.

NOEL was awesome!!! I had already signed a contract with a make up artist and went to Noel for a hair trial for my wedding.. I loved her! She was super friendly, soo fun and energetic, did a great job with all the hair styles I wanted and then told me what types of things she offers for makeup and her style and she even did some make up on me to show me what she does and it was great!! I canceled my contract with my other person and booked Noel for hair & make up for me, my family, and my bridesmaids! Special Events Beauty prices are very good and their services are great! I had so much fun with Noel, and as crazy, stressed, and nervous as I was on my wedding morning, she did a great job relaxing me, calming me down and making it such a wonderful experience! My hair and make up was awesome! She made me so beautiful on my special day. She's got great energy and is so fun & exciting to be around.. I loved her!!

Laid back, easy to work with - flexible and extremely reasonable! They traveled with no fee (within their 25 mile radius), they were early and ready to go. They also stayed until we left for the church. I could not have been more happy - everyone looked beautiful and I would truly recommend them to brides everywhere! :)

If my trial deserved an A+, my wedding day was off the charts. They knocked it out of the park. Rachel, Noel and their assistant traveled to my parent’s house and did 11 hair styles and 8 faces in about 5 hours. They were professional and fun at the same time. Their prices are very reasonable for the quality of their work. I have never felt so beautiful as I did on my wedding day and I have Rachel and Noel to thank. They started my day off on the best foot possible.

They were so much fun to be around, and my friends, family, and I had a great time preparing for my big day with them. I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out-- they made me look and feel beautiful!

I can't recommend special event beauty enough! They did the hair and make up for myself, my 7 bridesmaids and my mother. Everyone looked amazing and our guests kept asking who did our hair and makeup. The day of my wedding was so relaxed and stress free. I have been in weddings before where the hair and makeup has run over and it made for a very stressful start to the day. That was the opposite for me. Special event beauty did hair and makeup for all 9 people and we still had time to eat and relax before the photographer arrived. They even waited to touch me up after eating lunch and stayed to help me put on my veil. I would recommend this company to any bride who's looking to have a fun, relaxing and stress free wedding day. After seeing my pictures one of my bridesmaids booked them for her wedding and I'm so excited I get to have my hair and makeup done by them again!

A HUGE thanks goes to Special Event Beauty! Rachel and Mary were utterly amazing!! They made me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. From the very first meeting I felt completely comfortable around them and knew that my wedding day would be stress free because of them. On the wedding day, they arrived on time and made each of my bridal party members look and feel their best. The team created such a stress free environment and made me feel amazing. I can’t say enough great things about them. I would recommend them to every single bride because I do not think that there’s another company out there that could match them. My makeup and hair stayed perfect until the wee hours of the morning. My makeup did not smear throughout the ceremony and through my tears. My hair stayed perfect the entire night. I had the best experience with them and cannot thank them enough for truly making me feel beautiful!

Thank you both!!

A HUGE thanks goes to Special Event Beauty! Rachel and Mary were utterly amazing!! They made me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. From the very first meeting I felt completely comfortable around them and knew that my wedding day would be stress free because of them.

I rarely write reviews, but after I had such great experience with Noel at Special Event Beauty I really wanted to let others know what a great job she did! She did both my hair and makeup for my wedding in July and not only did everyone in the wedding party look fantastic, but she was by far the nicest, easiest vendor to work with. She was always easy to get a hold of, and her main goal was to make you feel your best. I highly reccomend her for anyones wedding!

Special Event Beauty was a real life saver. I originally reserved Wedding Tresses to do my hair and makeup for my Vermont wedding in June 2010 but they canceled 2 months before my wedding leaving me with no one to do my hair and makeup. I called many salons who said they have been booked for months. Finally, I came across Special Event Beauty who said they would try to see if one of their girls, Noel, could do it, if not they would help me find someone to do my hair and makeup and not to worry. Noel, ended up being available and she did an amazing job. She was really fun to work with and spent a lot of time making sure each of us looked the best we could. Noel not only did a great job on our hair and makeup, but she also made my sister and I really pretty orchid hair pieces and helped me fix my bouquet right before the wedding. I am so glad that Wedding Tresses canceled on me because no one could have done a better job than Noel from Special Event Beauty.

I'm a little sad that the max is 5 stars because I would give Special Event Beauty 10 stars if I could.

Kim and team were supposed to do just my hair and makeup for my rehearsal dinner. After my sister rushed into my suite freaking out about not having time to do her hair and makeup, I asked them if they could also do her hair and makeup and they did! Talk about saving my bacon! :o)

On the wedding day, they showed up early, setup quickly and got started on the bridesmaids. Everyone loved their hair and makeup (especially the airbrush and false lashes!). Their hair and makeup lasted a long time as well... long into the night. After seeing everyone else's hair and makeup, my mom even got hers done (!!!), which is huge because my mom is notoriously picky.

My hair and makeup was absolutely perfect! I wanted to change a couple of things from my trial and they totally made me look awesome! (I wish I could have Kim and Rachel do my hair and makeup every day. lol) I look amazing in my pro photos and a lot of the reason for that is Special Event Beauty.

Kim (makeup) and Rachel (hair) were amazing to work with! I did a hair trial elsewhere initially and we still joke about how I looked like Princess Leia. Obviously, I had to look for a new team and when I went to do a trial with Special Events I felt totally comfortable with them immediately. They listened very carefully, then made suggestions based on their experience, and when I looked at myself in the mirror that day I thought I had never looked better! I had the airbrushed makeup and eyelash additions and although my eyes looked way more exotic than usual (really awesome!), I looked like myself, just "glowier" and without imperfections! I booked without delay. They showed up to my house with lots of extra assistants who helped with curling and basic makeup. I really wanted my wedding party to look sophisticated but a little beachy, and definitely not prommy! I swear I have never seen my bridesmaids look more beautiful! They each picked their own hairstyle and brought pictures, and Rachel replicated what they wanted exactly- everyone looked stunning. Kim did the same with the makeup and each of the girls was a little different - modern, old Hollywood, glam, beachy - but all of them stayed looking flawless the whole night. My mom looked amazing - everyone kept commenting on how "foxy" she looked! They even did a little blush and lip gloss on my Grandma for free. My hair was perfect, a low chignon with an antique hair comb that I had brought, and my makeup stayed great the whole night with the help of the powder and lip gloss they gave me for my wedding bag! I highly recommend Kim and Rachel - go book a trial and you will see!

They were both extremely professional, efficient and flexible. Having them come to the house the day of the wedding was great because it took away the stress of having to travel, etc. I would recommend both women highly. If you want a great experience, if you want to feel and look your best, if you want to have less stress ...... call Rachel and Kim for you wedding day beauty needs!!!

Kim and Amy of Special Event beauty are genius! I had a catastrophe the week before my wedding and large skin infection on my nose that Kim was able to totally conceal with makeup- airbrush is a must for a wedding! Kim is so knowledgeable and professional about her business, and easy to work with. They were calm and efficient on the morning of my wedding to do hair and makeup for me and 7 others. I found them through a coworker's rec an could not have been happier. I had 3 other trials with qualified beauticians but Kim and Amy listened to exactly what I wanted and made sure I was happy with the final look. They also provided lip gloss and touch up papers. I would definitely rec Special Event Beauty for wedding hair and makeup!

Special Event Beauty was incredibly accomodating and professional. They really know what they're doing and have the ability to help Brides look like themselves on their Wedding day- just more enhanced and glowing. I called them only 3 months before my Wedding, as my other hair and makeup person fell through. They immediately set me up for a hair and makeup trial, which went wonderfully. I brought one of my bridesmaids with me, who was also engaged, and she was so impressed that she decided to use my wedding as her hair and makeup trial with them! Kim and Rachel were very flexible also- I decided a few weeks before my Wedding that I wanted a different hair style than I'd decided at the trial and I was only able to tell Rachel about it the morning of my Wedding, and she listened to exactly what I wanted, and it came out perfect. I was so happy that Kim did my makeup just like she'd done at the trial because I was so thrilled with how it came out that day and received so many compliments after my trial. All throughout my Wedding day and night I received so many compliments on how wonderful my hair and makeup looked. My Maid of Honor and Bridesmaid also got their hair and makeup done for my wedding and they absolutely loved it and also received tons of compliments! If you want to look your absolute best and have your makeup and hair done by experienced and professional women, you should definitely go with them- they are the best, and the value for the cost is truly amazing!

Kim was absolutely wonderful to work with for my July 2009 wedding. She was patient, knowledgeable, and well-prepared for doing the makeup of the eight lovely ladies in my wedding party. Despite the varied skin types (ranging in age from 23 to 60 and in race from Irish to Asian) every one of us looked like a million bucks. My sisters, mom and I all had our foundation airbrushed on, and we nearly forgot that we were wearing makeup because it felt so light and natural! Kim gave each of us touch-up kits to use throughout the day, and she had great makeup tips to share. She was very reasonably priced, and the quality of her work was outstanding. If I ever need a professional makeup artist in the future, Kim is absolutely the only person I would trust.

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.

Three years ago, I hired Noel McKinnon to do my hair and make-up for my wedding. The theme of my wedding was "Old Hollywood Glamour." I wanted to look like Grace Kelly and I needed a make-up artist who would understand and be able to achieve that. Noel was recommended through a friend of a friend and I couldn't have been happier! My make-up was perfect! Glamorous yet natural, and my hair was amazing! I didn't have an idea of how I wanted my hair and she styled a unique bun on the spot! She also did make-up and hair for my mom and sister. They loved theirs too! Noel is very knowledgeable about her craft. She understands a persons coloring, age and skin tone and creates her magic. She also makes you feel very comfortable and at ease which is very important on a stressful day! I would recommend her again and again. Thanks Noel!

Rachel and Maryanne were a dynamic duo! During the make-up and hair trial, they were very honest about what would look good and not look good, while also taking into account my preferences. The day of the wedding, they arrived early and did an amazing job. Everyone complimented how beautiful and natural the make up looked, and the hair was absolutely gorgeous. Definitely would recommend them!

Special Event Beauty traveled to my wedding venue and did hair for myself, 4 of my bridesmaids, and 2 others. Rachel was our stylist and she was AMAZING. I had gone for a hair trial with her months before my wedding and it came out great. Then, on the day of my wedding, Rachel remembered exactly what I wanted. She was right on time and stayed up until right before the ceremony doing touch-ups, etc. for everyone. She had great suggestions and great advice on hairstyles for everyone and even helped us stay on track with timing throughout the day. She listened to every word each of my bridesmaids said about what kind of style they wanted. Everyone loved their hair. Rachel was professional, friendly, and helped make getting ready comfortable and easy. The great thing about Special Event Beauty is they travel to you (I had a suite at our venue to get ready in and she came right there with all of her supplies). They also have a discount if you have X number of attendants or more. Even so, the cost was so reasonable and so worth it! What I love is Rachel uses the Square app on her iphone to process cc payments...simple, trusted, awesome. I would recommend her services to anyone. So stress-free. Special Event Beauty also offers makeup services, which I didn't need, but I have never heard a bad review about their makeup either! Special Event Beauty was recommended to me by my wedding photographer...I'm so glad I took her suggestion!

Kim and Rachel were amazing! First of all, hair and makeup were perfect. We went for a natural look for the entire wedding party, and everyone was happy, even my picky mother. They are extremely talented and professional. They were also very personable - my wedding party loved talking to them! I really cannot thank them enough for making us look so amazing.

I had Amy do my hair and 6 of my bridesmaids for my wedding. Amy brought an assistant with her and my bridesmaids really appreciated that the assistant got everyone curled and ready and then Amy did all of their updos. All the girls looked fantastic! Amy then also made time to do my mother's hair when she began to worry that she didn't know what to do with her hair. I wish Amy was around to do my mom's hair more often because I've never seen my mom look so beautiful! I was very pleased with my hair and with Amy. She thought ahead and called the hotel to get an extra chair brought to the room and played music on her ipad while we got ready (something that we had forgotten about!). I was also pleased with my hair trails because Amy makes it clear that she will do whatever you want because her goal is to make you happy and beautiful. Amy certainly succeeded in making me, my mother and all my bridesmaids beautiful on my wedding day!

I hired SEB to do my hair and makeup, as well as the hair and makeup of all my bridesmaids and mothers. They we great, very professional, and so calm and helpful. I thought my hair wasn't exactly what I wanted, but that is my fault for being too wrapped up in the day to really give explicit direction. Overall they were a fabulous value and so professional. I would definitely use them again!!

I absolutely loved working with Lisa and Kerry at Special Event Beauty. They came to me, which was was great on a very busy wedding day. I generally critical of my appearance, but they made me look beautiful--I've never felt prettier. They were on time, kept on schecule, and were fun to chat with.

Kerry was very creative--none of my bridesmaids had any idea how they wanted their hair to look, and she made suggestions that turned out wonderfully. She also worked wonders on my mom's difficult to work with hair--she looked fantastic!

Lisa was able to cover both my wrinkes and acne--I couldn't believe how great my skin looked.

MaryAnne and Kerry were wonderful to work with on my wedding day. They created the look that each bridesmaid and mother wanted and the hairstyles and makeup lasted long into the night. My hair did go very flat by the time the reception began but that's what I get for wanting long, voluminous curls in July. All of the other girls had updos and shorter hair than myself. Overall, they were a pleasure to work with and their services are reasonably priced.

Everyone talked about Special Event Beauty so I was surprised when we actually booked them about two months before the wedding. I was a bit nervous when I realized that Kim and Rachel weren’t the ones doing my hair/make-up and I didn’t see a lot of reviews for other team members. But, I had nothing to worry about. Kerry and Marianne were great!

I was very surprised by the amount of make-up was put on my face. I get that brides want to look nice for pictures but it was also important for me to look good up close. I didn’t want to look like someone else. I ended up doing three make-up trials. First with Marianne, then with Grace Mahoney to compare (she had great make up review but poor business reviews). She piled on even more make-up. I guess it’s the industry standard. I had a second trial with Marianne and, in the end, I asked Marianne to go very light on the airbrushing and she was happy to work with my concerns. My mother and MIL were also very nervous about the make-up and both ended up raving about Marianne’s work.
Kerry did all of our hair. We had lots of different hair types and styles and everyone was happy.
Both Marianne and Kerry arrived on time (actually 20 minutes early) and worked all morning to get us ready. Kerry was very responsive too. I had both her email and cell number and she always responded.

I would highly recommend them both.

Special Event Beauty helped make my wedding day fabulous. They truly listened to what I wanted for "my look," and were able to deliver it.
They were very personable and dependable. I recommmend that a client go for a trial before the big day to get an idea of their capabilities and discuss with them any changes that may need to be made or suggestions that they may have to offer.
The bridal party looked amazing and felt beautiful.
Thank you very much for the outstanding job you did with my hair and make-up! I had numerous guests tell me how “authentic” my hair and make-up looked like my 40’s glamour goal. Both my hair and make-up lasted the whole evening through pictures and dancing. I would highly recommend your services for the next highly satisfied bride!

It is my pleasure to recommend such a talented, and gifted makeup artist
as Kim Poutre. She did wonders for my wedding day, and my pictures of a lifetime were gorgeous! She was an exemplary artist and my makeup was
proof of first quality work. She shows time and effort in the work she does.
She is passionate and dedicated and trust me, it shows in my wedding pics.
Her value is worth the work portrayed in the makeup. I am usually allergic to
several types of makeup, and I had absolutely no problems with the makeup
that she used. She took the time to get to know what I liked in makeup, and
listened to me, and did it the way I liked. You will be very happy and impressed with her work and dedication as a makeup artist and skin care professional.

I was lucky to have Amy and Kate do my hair and make-up for my wedding (July 2014) and Rachel and Maryanne do my hair and make-up for my sister's wedding (June 2013). For both events, the ladies took the time to make me look and feel beautiful. For my wedding, Amy copied a hairstyle that I found online - and she was even able to make it perfect after I decided I wanted a little less height before leaving for the venue. I don't wear make-up and Kate made sure that I looked wedding-ready, but not overly done. I felt beautiful and received complements all night. My two bridesmaids looked beautiful as well.

Tiffany and Lisa were great for my wedding on 4/11/14. They were easy to work with for both the trial in Bridgewater and when they arrived at my house. They arrived on time and kept the makeup and hair rotation moving for myself, my mother-in-law, matron of honor and bridesmaid. Everyone's hair and make-up turned out beautifully and stayed perfect throughout the day. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I booked SEB because of their high reviews on this board and the fact that I wanted people to travel to me. They are definitely pricey, but worth it! I had a trial with them and they did an amazing job both at the trial and on the day of. A few of my maids also got theirs done and were very pleased. The women are so nice too and make sure you feel comfortable. I had a gorgeous updo which didn’t move at all throughout the night, despite all the dancing I participated in! They also do airbrush makeup which does not look fake or plastered on at all, it is so natural. Highly recommend!

Kerry at Special Event Beauty was great to work with! She was so nice to talk to during my hair trial, and she did a fabulous job. She tried a few different styles so that I could easily see and decide on how I wanted my hair for the big day. Then for the wedding she tweaked the style just a bit and I loved it even more! She was at the venue right on time (before we were even there!) and brought an assistant to be sure we stayed on schedule. Both ladies were really efficient so that we did stay on track, but never made us feel rushed. They were very relaxing and I was happy to have them there with us while we got ready! It was such a priority for me that we have our hair done at the venue, so that we didn't have to worry about travelling from the hotel to a salon to the ceremony. I'm so happy that it all worked out so well!

I worked with Lisa from SEB, who did makeup for me, my MOH and my mom on the morning of the wedding. She did a great job with airbrush makeup on the 3 of us, and she make us all look natural, and not over-the-top with our makeup. I also really appreciated that she listened to me during my makeup trial and went really light on the makeup, only adding more makeup when I asked her to. I also really liked the few false lashes she added to me--they really popped in my photos. Lisa was also a total sweetheart, and her presence was really calming and easy-going, and she was great to be around during the morning of getting ready.

Amy and Maryanne were amazing. They made everyone look beautiful.
My hair stayed put the whole night. I had 2 trials before I found them, at a local salon and both times my hair fell apart in 30 minutes. Amy was able to not only make the hair style that I wanted but also make it stay the whole evening. I still get complemented on my hair and make up when I see my friends and they talk about my wedding. So book them don't even think about it for a moment they are the best!

I used Special Event Beauty for the hair and makeup for my wedding and I thought they did a great job. They did my hair and makeup plus my bridesmaids and my mom and aunts. They did 9 people in one day on the day of the wedding and everything went very smoothly! First I had a hair and makeup trial and I was very worried about looking overdone, but they followed directions and gave me exactly the look I was going for. On the day of the wedding, they were prompt and professional and everyone looked great! They were also very friendly and flexible and easy to work with. The price was reasonable enough compared to what salons usually cost and they did give a discount for having a lot of people. I would definitely recommend this company.

The girls from Special Event Beauty were WONDERFUL! I felt like I looked absolutely beautiful on my wedding day, and I have Amy and Noel to thank for that! They did my hair and make-up, along with all of my bridesmaids and a few other family members as well. Every one of the girls looked gorgeous. They gave them looks that were modern and classy. Several of the girls came with pictures of how they wanted to look, and Amy and Noel totally nailed it. They also came with lots of great ideas of their own to help the girls choose the best look. They listened to my ideas about how I wanted to look on my wedding day and then helped me determine what was the best look for me. I just got some pictures back from my photographer and the make-up looks perfect--not too washed out and not too over-dramatic. My hair-do lasted all night and I never had to fuss with it. And several of my bridesmaids have told me how many compliments they have gotten when people have seen pictures of them from the wedding. Not only did we all look great, but Amy and Noel came to my hotel room on my wedding day to help us all get ready, so there was no rushing around to get everyone to salons. And to top it all off--they were the most reasonably priced option in town! I cannot say enough great things about Special Event Beauty, and especially Amy and Noel. I would without a doubt hire both of them again for any special occasion and I would absolutely recommend them to any bride who is looking for the perfect hair and make-up team. They are the BEST!!!

I had sent an e-mail inquiring about services and prices, and response was quick. The ladies were quite personable. Both hair and make-up can be done at the shop or on location (I had my hair done at the salon and make-up done at my house). They also do trial runs. While doing a trial for my make-up, i discovered that my skin was really dehydrated, and Kim gave me inexpensive suggestions of things that I could do myself to help re-hydrate. Both Kim and Rachel did an amazing job and it is definately worth the money.

PS They do air brush make-up, which I highly reccommend. Your face is absolutely flawless and it is near impossible to cry or sweat it it off!!

This review is LONG overdue. We hired Tiffany from Special Events Beauty for our wedding last June. She did an amazing job on myself and my bridesmaids. I still have guests commenting on how great my hair looked! Tiffany is very personable and a pleasure to work with. I actually had two hair trials because I was doubting the first one, and she was happy to do a second one(and I felt terrible asking her for another one) but glad I changed my mind on my hairdo!! I would definitely recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much Tiffany!

We had a lot of fun with Noel the day of the wedding. She came and worked with us all day the in hotel room. I really appreciate everything she did to help us prepare! She brought everything we would ever need and spent time with everyone and made sure it was perfect. I loved my hair (and so did my husband)! I also loved the airbrushing - that made a world of a difference in the photos.

I would do this again a thousand times over. This was the most relaxing way to prepare for your wedding!

We had a great time with Special Event Beauty. I had 6 bridesmaids, two moms and a grandma who all had their hair and makeup done with SEB. They are fantastic. I was worried there would not be enough time to get everyone done but we had no issues!

Definitely go with the airbrush make-up too- its incredible. I consider myself pretty good at doing my own make up so I debated doing it myself. I am so glad I didn't. I loved my make up and it was so much more relaxing and special to have someone do it. Also, Amy, who does hair is really amazing too. One of my bridesmaids never had a successful up-do before but Amy was able to do. Her hair looked great and she managed to kiss TWO boys at the wedding!

Amy also took the time to help me choose a hair piece on Etsy! That's dedication.

Its a little pricey (but these services are expensive from any vendor). If you can afford it, then definitely do it. And choose SEB!

I was VERY happy with how my hair and make-up turned out for my wedding - it was even better than it had been at the trial! I worked with Rachel for hair and Maryanne for make-up and they were both very flexible and open to input and comments. They both arrived early on my wedding day and had us ready exactly on time. Rahcel handled 4 up-dos, a half-up/half-down (fully curled and with extensions) and a blow-out with ease and Maryanne handled all 6 for make-up wonderfully. My bridal party and myself looked stunning and we received several comments saying the same. You may need to follow-up on emails once or twice but as long as you do everything will be taken care of.

I felt like the most beautiful bride ever on my wedding day, so much so that I stated it more than once! It was mostly due to the hair and makeup Rachel and Maryanne provided on the day of my wedding. They created the perfect look that wasn't over the top but just enough to make me look done up. My hair stayed in place through some serious dancing and some intense rain and my makeup stayed on throughout the night!

Rachel and Maryanne were true professionals when dealing with all 9 people who had to get hair and makeup done. I couldn't be happier with how my hair and makeup came out! THANK YOU!

Special Event Beauty did a wonderful job of hair and makeup for my entire bridal party! Though a bit expensive they are absolutely worth the cost. The only concern that I had was that after doing my hair, Maryanne completed my makeup, which was lovely, however with the spray makeup it left the hair just around my face the color of the spray makeup, which was not offered to be fixed. Other than that, I thought they were lovely.

Amy and Lisa were great on the wedding day. There were six of us getting ready and they made great time even though hardly anyone brought pictures for them to reference. They even touched up my grandma's hairpiece for her. The airbrush makeup and fake lashes looked great without being overdone - we all wanted natural but enhanced looks, and that's exactly what we got. Everyone's hair stayed the whole night and we all got plenty of compliments on both our hair and makeup.

Kim and Rachel did a great job with me and my 2 bridesmaids. They both do exactly what you ask. I wear makeup everyday so it was hard to be 100% happy with how someone else does my makeup. I felt I was wearing too much and that we were a little rushed in the end. However the pictures Ive seen so far look great so Im really happy I hired Special Event Beauty. I opted to not have airbrushing done and my makeup lasted the night (with some lipstick touchup). Rachel styled my hair and it looked great all night! Huge bonus is that they are reasonably priced unlike many other companies who charge double or more. They are also very flexible and professional. An excellent company!

Myself and my bridal party used Tiffany for hair and Kate for make-up. Both Tiffany and Kate were great to work with. They were so wonderful at my trial prior to the wedding, both just being nice people and the look they did was perfect, so I felt confident going into the wedding that they would make everyone look great. On the day of the wedding they were on time and did exactly what myself and the bridal party asked for. It was great to have them come to the hotel where we were getting married. Everyone looked beautiful, but not overdone.
My only complaint was that it was a bit tough to get a hold of the people at SEB to make sure they had gotten my deposit/contract and that everything was settled. Getting in touch with Tiffany/Kate directly was not a problem though, and I would certainly recommend them.

My stylists were over an hour late to my house and then did not budget their time well once there. I went last since I was the bride but got the least amount of attention due to time constraints. My photographer had showed up and my hair was just starting to get curled! This made me an hour late to my wedding and my hair looked nothing like the trial. However, we had no time to fix this since I had to rush into my dress. This threw off the whole feel of getting ready. It made all of my pre-ceremony pictures with my parents and bridesmaids extremely rushed. Overall not a great experience.

Special Event Beauty responded with the following comments:

We were quite saddened to see this review. We disputed it at first as it was published a year after the event and we had no idea of who it could be or how to respond. After some process of elimination we determined who the bride was, and who had worked with them. I immed. spoke with both artists, (who have been with us since the very beginning and have truly outstanding reviews.) They were both very sad, actually devastated, to read this. As to being an hour late, we are a little confused they do not remember being an hour late and would have told me right then. We would have then contacted you right away and I would have a record of it. Most times you will find them sitting in the a parking lot an hour early. We book one a wedding a day per artist 99% of the time so they never have to rush to leave a bride and can add people if needed. I wish you had contacted us right away. Its very hard to be specific almost a year later. We, along with both artists are very sorry you felt that way. If you see our 102 reviews here you will see thats not how we do business. I am truly sorry for any inconvenience you incurred.

I hate to leave a bad review but I was extremely disappointed with my experiences with Special Event Beauty. I was so excited to have my makeup professionally done for my big day and had contacted them 10 months before the big day as I had a larger bridal party. I kept in contact as my number had grown so I let Kim know 9 months before the wedding that it looked like I'd have a total between 6-9 of us having our makeup done. My hair salon was doing the updos so I was just looking for makeup for myself and my bridal party. Seven months later I e-mailed just to check in as I hadn't heard anything and was asked for the schedule for hair. When I let Kim know the time frame she said there might not be enough time to fit everyone in and if we could talk by phone ASAP to work through the schedule. On the phone she said she'd work it out but had double booked that day so the second make up artist had to be in Boston for a wedding and had booked another person as well. She also said, "this is why I normally don't double book dates" which I was wondering the same thing. I was told that my number in the bridal party normally only needed 1 artist-- I'm not sure why they wouldn't ask for a schedule to begin with if this could have been an issue (it was my first time having professional makeup done-- I had no idea). I would have gladly figured it out earlier if I thought of it being an issue however this is why you hire professionals who should know. I understand the artists have a minimum to make it worth it for them but with my number we definitely had over the amount for two girls AND one of them was going by our town on the way into the city. After our conversation I even drafted a schedule after working it out with the hair salon which she then forwarded to the makeup artist to figure out. My trial with the artist went great so I stuck with Special Event Beauty. The day of when I arrived at the salon the artist was running 20 minutes behind schedule and taking way too m

Special Event Beauty responded with the following comments:

I am so sorry to hear you were unhappy with our service. I reviewed all the many email correspondences we had and spoke with the artist. I first want to address the double booking issue. I think you misunderstood, we did not double book, it is against our policy. Your initial request was for 4/5 people so we assigned one artist. Then it went up to a possible 9. We then added the second artist. At your trial a month before your wedding, in your email wanting to book our artist you stated there would be six. We then released the other artist to do another last minute wedding that came in as our artists can easily do 6 as was first assigned. Then your request went up to 8 a few days later. We had already assigned the artist to the other wedding. I remember stating that if they didn’t need to be ready by 11 then it would be fine and Coco could handle it. We also sent an assistant along at our cost to make sure the artist had help to work within the time frame and extra people.
As to the eye shadow and lip, Coco said she worked off the notes & face chart she did at the trial. I am not sure as to what happened and I apologize if it wasn’t everything you had requested at trial.
As to the deposit, your trial was close to your wedding date so we did not have you pay the deposit up front in case it crossed in the mail. If the artist asked you to write two separate checks that was an error in judgement and we apologize for the added inconvenience.
In the end we never want to hear we disappointed anyone on their wedding day. We are very sorry you felt our service didn’t live up to the standards we have set for ourselves. We pride ourselves on giving the best in customer service as seen in our reviews. If we failed in providing you with top service we apologize. The artist and her assistant told me how wonderful both you and your mom were. Again, our apologies for any misunderstandings or issues we may have caused.
