About Katie M.

hired 4 times on Thumbtack

I am an experienced make-up artist, hair stylist, and image consultant. I am available for special events, such as weddings, galas, proms, and public appearances (or for any special occasion you may have).

I cater to photoshoots (commercial or portrait/family), portraits, and video production.

For larger wedding parties or fashion shows, I do have up to 2 additional experienced stylists that can be booked simultaneously, allowing for an entire wedding party, family, or group preparing for a special event or appearance to be styled on-location in a timely manner.

Styling on location is a fantastic way to ensure you look sensational for your special moment, while keeping it personal (not having to spend time at a crowded, noisy, or busy salon).

I can assist with fully styled make-up, hair, wardrobe, or all aspects of your image.

My work has been seen on the cover of Cleveland and Akron Life & Leisure Magazines and in All You Magazine, as well as in many weddings and for various photo shoots.

My rates are very reasonable; the same, if not less than visiting a salon, and I'll come to you/your location! I provide the styling tools, including makeup and hair product, unless you indicate you'd prefer otherwise.

For special events, portraits, and public appearances, I am happy to meet with you to discuss your goals and desired image, and if you'd like, we can do a practice run of your look(s) and style prior to the event itself. This is about you and making you look and feel beautiful.

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions to see images of my work or to confirm availability.

    Katie was great. She brought along an assistant since there were so many of us getting makeup done in a short period of time. They were both professional yet a ton of fun.
    All the girls had a fantastic time getting their makeup done and LOVED the results.
    If I need makeup done in the future I will be contacting Katie!

    Katie was great! She was incredibly patient and is willing to keep trying different things until you both agree upon the look.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. It's optional, but I always recommend scheduling a "dry run through" for a special event. And ... consider it an opportunity to discover as much what NOT to do, as what TO do. It will also give you a chance to get a feel for the stylist's work and personality. There should never be an obligation to hire after a dry-run-through.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. While it may seem like a detail, but professional styling will make an enormous difference in the confidence level of those being styled (who doesn't love to have their hair or makeup done beautifully?), and make your photographic memories even more beautiful. Priceless.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Do you have examples of your work that I may see?
Are you comfortable with (fill in the blank with any specifics about your look or style - such as extensions, ethnic make-up, airbrushing, etc...) looks?
If applicable: are you able to handle a large group?
How do you schedule your time(s)?
Do you bring all of your own products?
