Experience

"If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life" -Marc Anthony

Nicole has shown an interest in hair and beauty since the time she was 6. Cutting her dolls hair and applying lipstick were just a few of her specialites by age 8. As soon as she was able to work, she got a part-time job at a salon. Ever since then (well, far before then) hair was Nicole's passion. She attended highschool in Fairfax, VA and began venturing into updos sophmore year. By senior year, Nicole was doing updos for everyone's prom, homecoming, etc. After graduating highschool, Nicole decided to take her passion for hair to the next level, and enrolled in the Paul Mitchell Cosmetology program. While she wantd so bad to love coloring and cutting, Nicole's interest was solely in updos and formal hair.

With Nicole’s talent in updos and her dazzling personality, she founded her own bridal company in 2011 and has since expanded her company to include a team of 12 girls so that she could accommodate more brides. Hair & Makeup Unveiled has successfully won awards every year since, from both The Knot & Wedding Wire. Nicole's work was recently featured on the cover of Virginia Bride Magazine.

While Nicole is great at all hairstyles her absolute favorites are loose & romantic. She also loves braiding and classic updos! Our makeup artists specialize in natural makeup and making our brides look like the best version of themselves.

    Great hair for everyone

    Nicole was great and flexible! She worked with my rather large bridal party with ease. She even offered suggestions as we were doing our make up. She managed to get everyone done in time and everyone was pleased with their looks. Thank you so much!

    True Artistry!

    Nicole and Jordan were an absolute joy to work with! They are true artists at what they do and put a look together that I could never have imagined. Being someone who has no clue what looks great it was amazing to feel total confidence in telling them to do whatever they felt would be great from my general comments of what I liked! My makeup and hair were both flawless! Not to mention both nicole (hair) and Jordan (makeup) were just so fun to work with! Thanks to their incredible work my now husband can’t stop saying he thinks I should do my hair and makeup like that every day! (Men).

    Excellant experience

    My gift to my daughter-in-law for the wedding was providing hair and make-up for the wedding party. I had initially arranged for hair services as a aesthetician friend had offered to do make-up. She backed out and Nicole arranged for make-up services as well with only a few months notice.

    Nicole and the person providing make-up (so embarrassed I can't recall her name) were professional, efficient and listened/provided what we asked.

    Hair and makeup were perfect! And we all looked great for pictures. Highly recommend!
