Makeup and Hair Success!
Cotton Rouge is very responsive to requests and questions. They are personable and make your entire experience relaxing and fun. My trial (which I used for rehearsal dinner) and wedding makeup were perfect. My hair fell out a bit toward the end but I was jumping around a ton.Sent on 10/09/2019
Overall- I would highly recommend Cotton Rouge Makeup and Hair studio. They kept the wedding party on time and even got my hair/makeup completed early to give me time to get extra photos taken.
Highly recommend them : ) Love the airbrush and lashes,

Leigh was so fast, but still did a GORGEOUS job! All of my girls were stunning!
I hired Cotton Rouge last minute as I was trying to find someone affordable that could also do airbrush makeup. Shockingly, it was pretty difficult to locate someone who offered both. But, Cotton Rouge saved the day. Not only was it affordable, they worked so well with my timeline and all of the makeup was just stunning. We received so many compliments! Leigh also arrived early and worked in all TWELVE of my girls (including mom and honorary Bridesmaids) within our requested timeline. She was perfect! 10 out of 10!Sent on 08/19/2019

I have had the pleasure of working with Cotton Rouge on several occasions. Each time I heard a bride of mine was planning on hiring Katie and her team for their hair and makeup, I'd get so excited because I knew that not only would the bride be served with an unparalleled level of excellence and care, but also because my job as a photographer would be easier! A talented photographer herself, Katie understands how to enhance and accentuate features in a way that not only makes a bride feel amazing, but also translates beautifully to the camera. I am always blown away by her skill which only goes to show how much she truly cares about her clients. Not to mention it is a bonus each time our paths cross - Katie is just so much fun and a true blessing to know! Thank you for serving your clients so well, Katie and team!
Oh guys. We could write for days about how amazing Katie and her team at Cotton Rouge & Company are! About 90% of our brides use her every year. One of the main reasons for that is...we almost require it! Katie and her team make our brides look their very best. But beyond that, they care about each of them. That's extremely important to us! We know that when we send our brides to Katie, they are going to be treated the way a bride should be treated. Example: About a month ago, we sat down one of our couples. We were helping them prepare for their engagement session when the subject of hair and makeup came up. Our bride, Rachel, was planning to use a local salon to get her hair and makeup done for the session as well as her wedding. We told her that was fine, but we always recommend Cotton Rouge. So if she had any problems, that's where she should go. A few days later she showed up at the session and told us that her salon of choice had not made her a priority and couldn't get her in before the session. So 24 hours in advance, she called Cotton Rouge. They got her in, treater her like a princess, and made Rachel look even more amazing! Rachel then told us that she had decided she would now be using Cotton Rouge for her wedding day as well!!! That's just one of 30 stories we could tell about how much we LOVE Katie and her team of talented artists. If you need hair and makeup for your wedding or any session at all, LOOK NO FURTHER! No matter which of her artists you get, the story is always the same. Perfection.
The entire Cotton Rouge team is truly amazing at what they do! Very consistent and talented group here. Fun too! You can't go wrong choosing Cotton Rouge for all of the hair and makeup duties. Highly recommend!
