    Amazing group of woman!!

    Our wedding morning was so much fun getting makeup and hair done. Everyone looked amazing! We will be booking our reception/ anniversary next year. This year we could only have the ceremony with a small group because of Covid, but it was an amazing day. Thank you ladies!!!

    Awesome makeup artist!

    MaryKate was absolutely fantastic for our wedding on 5/19! Everyone looked absolutely stunning! I’ve been in weddings where we were unhappy with our makeup, but all of my girls loved their looks!! She was perfect on timing, and made sure everyone had exactly what they wanted. Book with them!

    Amazing and unparalleled

    I loved working Special Event Beauty from start to finish for my wedding. Working with Jacki on the backend, she was super responsive, very organized, and had an upbeat attitude. I actually had a trial with a different salon first and was very unhappy and had the complete opposite experience with Special Event Beauty. The team we had of makeup artists and hair stylists was top notch. Rene did both my bridal hair and makeup and I've never felt more beautiful. Even better, with wind and happy tears throughout the course of the day, even by the end, both still looked flawless. Noel, Jessica, and Maryanne rounded out the team and they somehow made my gorgeous bridesmaids more gorgeous. My mom and mother-in-law also had their makeup done (their first time ever) and they looked and felt so beautiful. The team was timely, pleasant, and stayed on schedule. Getting ready with Rene, Noel, Jessica, and Maryanne was one of the best parts of the day. I HIGHLY recommend you hire them for your wedding. I am so happy I did!

Special Event Beauty is without a doubt the best hair and make-up company I have worked with. We have not only worked together on wedding projects but also model photo shoots and music CD sessions. Their attention to detail and professionalism are second to none and they get the job done while having fun and keeping everyone relaxed, which is vital. I would not hesitate to endorse their work and they are always my first choice for any project.

The best in the business. Extremely professional. Every bride who has used Special Event Beauty has been thrilled from the first phone call thru the actual wedding day. They make us look good by recommending them.

We have worked with Kim and Rachel on one wedding so far and are looking forward to being on the same team together for another wedding coming up in a few weeks. These two gals are the best of the best and this is an opinion shared by many of our colleagues at New England Wedding Professionals when they were selected to win the "Setting a Higher Standard in the Wedding Industry" award this year. Kim and Rachel make a bride feel like she's never looked more beautiful and it's true, they do. Further, they are the kindest and most generous people you'll ever have the good fortune of meeting. Do yourselves a favor and get Kim and Rachel on your wedding team. I promise you will not be disappointed. Best, Terri Altergott, PBC Something Borrowed, Something New Events
