Melissa was amazing!

Our hair and makeup artist was Melissa, and she was incredible! I did a hair and makeup trial with her beforehand where we finalized the look I wanted for the day-off. She cruised through all of my bridesmaids and was ahead of schedule on the actual wedding day. She made me look and feel gorgeous and comfortable!

Beautiful!

So thankful for cotton rouge and co and all their help for my wedding party and bridal look in May! Catherine and Gina were amazing to work with and made our vision come to life in the world of hair and make up. Booking was easy and they were even able to help me reschedule my trial date to align with my bridals when we had a last minute weather change. The artists are so talented and easy to work with and down to earth. Could not recommend cotton rouge and co and these girls enough! Someone from my bridal party loved them so much she actually ended up booking Gina for her big day too!

Thank you!!

Katie and Leigh did an amazing job with my bridal makeup and my bridesmaids and mother鈥檚 makeup for my wedding. They arrived promptly and set up shop at my venue to get everyone鈥檚 hair and makeup done on time and they even finished ahead of schedule which makes a type A bride like myself very happy! Katie worked with me through two different hair trials until I found the right style. I cannot speak highly enough of Katie and her team - thank you for making me feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day!

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.
