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.

Kim and Rachel did a phenomenal job as the makeup and hair specialists on my wedding day!!!!! I did a trial with both of them, and then Rachel was nice enough to do a 2nd trial for me at a discounted price when I decided I wanted to change my look for my hair. Both were super nice, funny, professional, and did AMAZING work. Rachel helped me to get my hair EXACTLY how I wanted, which was a half-up half-down style where my natural curls were enhanced to be bigger and more voluminous. I had told myself I could just do my hair myself but WOW did it make a difference to have Rachel do it instead!!!!!! And Kim's make up was GLORIOUS. I liked it enough to book her after my trial, but still wanted a few tweaks done that I vocalized on the day of (less dark colors, more pink, since I'm fair skinned). I gotta say that on the wedding day, it was to a whole new level of spectacular. I could not have asked for my wedding makeup to have been more perfect. Overall, I received compliments galore on both the makeup and hair. They also did hair and makeup for my mom who is African-American (with relaxed hair), and makeup for my MOH who is African. While I'm biracial, I am very fair skinned and I was very nervous that while they did a great job on me during the trial, I wasn't able to reassure my mom and MOH in advance that they could do their makeup in a way they would like. They both ended up looking phenomenal, and I am so incredibly grateful. Lastly, they did updos for two other bridesmaids, and they also looked spectacular and were very very happy. Thank you Kim and Rachel for being so wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kim and Kerry are easy to with with. Kerry did a remarkable job listening to my bride-to-be daughter's request for a hairstyle. My daughter never imagined her hair could look like that! And Kim had just the right touch for makeup. And this was only the trial! We look forward to the real thing with the rest of the bridal party!

Thank you so much to Kerry and Marianne of Special Event Beauty for making me and all of my favorite ladies look and feel so beautiful on my wedding day. They were both so patient with me at the trial and spent over an hour making sure I was 100% happy with my hair and my makeup. I left the trial feeling so excited for the big day knowing I had these ladies to make me look my best. The day of the wedding they were so great - they made all of us feel relaxed and had fun with us all morning while they worked their magic. I heard so many compliments throughout the night about how great everyone's hair and makeup looked, and I am probably biased, but I have to admit I think we all cleaned up pretty nicely thanks to Kerry and Marianne! Thanks ladies for not only providing your talent with hair and makeup but also for being so easy to work with and so much fun.

Kerry and Kim are outstanding! I'm so happy we found them and they made the trek to the Berkshires to do hair and makeup for our wedding day. They are so sweet and incredibly talented at what they do. I had six bridesmaids, plus mothers, a grandmother, a flower girl...they did such a stunning job on everyone. My hair stayed all night long, through an outdoor ceremony and dancing like crazy until the end of the night. Kim did such an amazing job with my makeup-- beautiful, natural, not overdone at all. The transformation takes your breath away; it brought tears to my eyes when I finally looked in the mirror and saw how beautiful it was, and I still looked like me! It stayed on all night, through sweat and tears. You are in good hands with Kim and Kerry. A huge huge thank you to them and I'd recommend them to anyone!

I booked the same two ladies that did my sister's wedding, because they left me feeling beautiful. They didn't leave until they touched up everyone in the party. I really loved working with them and would definitely recommend going with them for your wedding.

I could not have picked a better company for my wedding! The prices were entirely reasonable and they did an awesome job! All of my bridesmaids loved their hair and makeup and I've already recommended special events beauty numerous times. Kim was great emailing me back and forth and all the girls were super friendly. When they came to my house I felt like there was no rush and it was 100% stress free. I would continue to recommend them in a heartbeat!!

We booked Special Event beauty for our wedding in Boston. We booked them based off of all their reviews from The Knot. We could not have been happier with how everything turned out. Kim was extremely prompt in responding to all of our questions. They showed up on time, and took their time to make sure everyone was happy with their hair and makeup. Everyone looked amazing and we cannot thank them or recommend them enough!

Amy & Katie did my hair and makeup and they RULE! It was so fun getting ready with them and they made the day so much less stressful. They were very easy to communicate with! I will be recommending these ladies to all my gal pals for their upcoming weddings. Everything came out exactly how I wanted it to and I couldn't have been happier with these two ladies :)

I found Special Event Beauty online looking through reviews of multiple on-site location hair and makeup services. I knew right at my hair and makeup trial that I wanted them for the day of. We had Justine and Lisa, and they were great with myself and my four bridesmaids as well as my mother. They were able to listen to each of the ladies on what they wanted their look to be and they did a great job because everyone was beautiful! Justine and Lisa also took pictures from the trial and notes and we were able to tweak a few things so easily on the day of my wedding, I was so pleased with how everything came out. Reasonable prices, very responsive and professional, and Justine and Lisa were great the day of and we had so much fun. Highly recommended!
