Rosie Hunter from Kate Johnson artistry is nothing short of amazing. She was the perfect amount of laid back and sassy. She fit right in with our group. She made me feel very comfortable and did exactly what I had imagined without me even being able to describe it well. I will always be grateful for Rosie!

Using Kate Johnson Artistry for my daughter’s wedding hair and makeup was such a fabulous decision! Every member of the wedding party (seven bridesmaids!) looked simply beautiful -- and especially my daughter, the bride. While of course I am just a bit biased, many people commented that she looked like a movie star. Rosie Hunter could not have been more patient, receptive to each woman’s preferences, and professional throughout the long day of preparation. As mother of the bride, I was worried that my hair, which was shedding in the weeks before the August 25 wedding due to a serious illness I’d had in April, would look flat, thin and not hold up during the whole busy day. My insecurities we totally unfounded -- it held its style all day and night, and had the natural look I had hoped for. A wedding guest, also a hair stylist, actually commented that she loved my hair! But the star of the show was my daughter. She was simply radiant. Naturally, she was glowing with happiness, but Rosie’s expertise really made her shine. She seemed to know intuitively the classic style Natalie was aiming for, and totally brought it to life. The entire experience was positive and happy -- the team was friendly, warm and worked their magic quickly, and with wonderful result. I can’t recommend Kate Johnson Artistry enough!

I've had the opportunity to work with Kate and her team on so many occasions I've lost track, but when it was time for me to get my hair and makeup done for an important video shoot was in front of the camera for, I wouldn't have called anyone else. She has an incredible ability to make you look like you, even when you have makeup on that you might think is too heavy or out of character for you. She knows how to make you look your best, but not go crazy overboard! Shes also super fun to work with so I'd highly recommend using her for whatever your specialty makeup and hair needs may be.
