Beauty and the Beach
Katie and the girls at Beauty and the Beach are absolutely a pleasure to work with. I didn't have to worry about a thing! They listened to what I wanted, were on time, and were so easy to get along with. Katie was amazing and I absolutely loved my hair and make-up!
On my wedding morning, Katie came to do my bridal make-up, two of my bridesmaids, and my mother's. She did an amazing job of making us all look beautiful. My mother is very uncomfortable with these types of things but she was so happy with how her make-up turned out. She looked absolutely beautiful as well as all my bridesmaids. Katie did a wonderful job of giving me a natural yet elegant look. I received compliments throughout the entire night. I can't wait to see the pictures! In addition, Katie is the sweetest person and extremely dependable. She was always great at getting back quickly to emails and answering any questions or concerns I had. Katie also did my hair when I was in my sister-in-laws wedding a few years ago, which looked beautiful as well. I've had two perfect experiences with Katie and would definitely recommend her for all of your wedding day beauty needs!!!
Katie was absolutely amazing! She does such a great job with both hair and make-up. All my bridesmaids are definitely going to her when they get married! That is straight from their mouths. Thank you for making us look all so good and for being so energetic, easy going, and funny! I will definitely see you in the future!!!!
Amazing experience with Beauty and the Beach! Katie came with a full team completely prepared and organized. They did everyone's hair and make up (FG, MOB, Bride and five bridesmaids) and finished EARLY! We even had time to think about what to eat for lunch before the 3:30pm ceremony. Seriously, by far the best experience I have ever had with any vendor. Katie is so caring and attentive, you will thank yourself later when you book with them! Great value and service!!!
I highly recommend Beauty and the Beach. I first met Katie when she did my hair and makeup for my best friends wedding. When I got engaged and we set a date, Katie was the first person I knew I had to secure - and lucky me, she was available! Katie is a very beautiful, smart and talented woman that cares about each and every one of her clients. Not only does she make every bride look their absolute best, she is so gracious and attentive that you truly feel like you’re the luckiest girl on the planet. And, of course, she has amazing skills... not only did I look like a million bucks, my Mom has this horrible perm – Katie worked her magic and my Mom looked stunning. Beauty and the Beach are also very reasonably priced. I can’t say enough good things about Beauty and the Beach.
Katie and her assistants were amazing! I had about 7 bridesmaids plus my mom and flower girl get their hair done and everyone looked amazing! I had a few magazine photos for styles and Katie made everyone look like celebrities! I really wanted my hair down for the ceremony but up for the reception so Katie came back after the ceremony and redid my hair in minutes! It looked awesome! Loose curls pinned back so it was off my neck but it never fell out the rest of the night! Everyone loved it! I had a few girlfirends who recently got married saying they wish they had my "hair gal"! She is so nice and I would definitely reccomend her to ANYONE looking for fabulous hair!
Katie and her assistant were just AMAZING - they were on time, efficient, clean, respectful, really good at what they do, but also the kind of girls I would hang out with any day. I had little idea of what I wanted, and left the rest up to Katie, and my hair turned out amazing. I have the kind of hair that never holds a curl for more than 25 minutes, and my hair lasted not only through the whole wedding but also for the after party! The bridal party all looked incredible. We had such a blast getting ready for the wedding, I highly recommend Beauty and the Beach to anyone and everyone.
Professional Certified Makeup Artist
My name is Katie Vollmer and I am the founder/owner of Beauty and the Beach mobile Hair and Makeup services. Literally the name is derived from my two passions...I LOVE makeup and I LOVE the beach!
Beauty and the Beach was born when I discovered that brides needed and wanted honest, talented, affordable, professional and friendly artists to make their "Red Carpet" moment as perfect as possible. After all, we are the last one to have our hands on them before they walk down the aisle to say "I Do" to the one they want to impress the most! The beautiful bride needs to know that she will be in the comfort of one that will not only make her look and feel fabulous, but also, a calm and friendly personality to comfort her as her BIG moment approaches. Each stylist that works for Beauty and the Beach is not only an amazing hair stylist and makeup artist, but is honest, caring and proficient at every level necessary. We make the day run smooth and send the entire bridal party down that aisle on time and looking and feeling absolutely picture perfect!
I have been passionately doing both hair and makeup for over 12 years in Southern California. This will be my first summer in Hawaii.I will be available for bridal beauty from June 20th to August 10th.
Although I specialize in weddings, I love to do fashion shows, commercials, photo shoots, and even special effects! I trained hand in hand with the talented Gina Ludwig and had the privilege of working at Hair Comes the Bride for about six
years! In 2002 I earned a BA degree in Art from Cal State Long Beach. I then went on to receive a certificate in the Journeyman Program of Makeup for TV and Film from the prestigious Make-Up Designory in Burbank, CA in 2004. I continued my education and
credentials by graduating with an Esthetician’s license from Lake Forest Beauty College. Finally, in 2006 I started Beauty and the Beach!
I love Jesus, my hubby, my kiddos and I love to surf, snowboard, ride horses and, of course, hair and makeup! My husband and I were married in 2003 at Rancho Las Lomas. We had our first baby in 2007, a gorgeous little girl and we just had a baby boy in May of 2010! I’m enjoying motherhood and running my own business.
