The Artists Hair + Makeup
About this pro
Amy and Ashley were thoughtful and professional throughout the entire process. They traveled into the city, were on time, and went above and beyond to make sure the bridesmaids and I were satisfied. I absolutely loved my look and would recommend The Artists to anyone!Oct 31, 2017Verified
Laura and Erin are fabulous!! They did my hair and makeup for my wedding and trial along with a few of my bridesmaids and flower girls. Our hair looked perfect all night even after all the dancing we did. My makeup was flawless and looked perfect in all of our pictures. These girls are so much fun to be around and great at what they doSep 18, 2016Verified
I cannot recommend Erin and Laura enough. I hired them to do my wedding makeup and hair for my wedding party. They were very punctual and accommodating, even when I asked for a venue change not long before the date. I showed Laura a few photos of what I wanted and she was able to reproduce the look perfectly. Erin received minimal instructions from me and did a beautiful job with all my bridesmaids. I was warned that non-Asian makeup artists might have trouble working with Asian faces and hair, but these two had no difficulty at all. And for the price, it's a steal.Aug 13, 2017Verified
Erin was wonderful to work with for hair and make-up for our wedding. Erin made us look great and was able to help give hair suggestions to my bridesmaids for their up dos. Erin was professional and calm during the morning which was so helpful. Would highly recommend working with her.Jul 26, 2017Verified
These girls are wonderful, I booked with them pretty last-minute and they worked with my hair artist to make the schedule work, and even did some hair too! Super friendly and accommodating I would definitely recommend.Jul 9, 2017Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?A little about The Artists! I'm Laura and I am a type 6 licensed esthetician, makeup artist and nail technician. I've been in the beauty industry for 6 years. My specialties include bridal makeup and invigorating facials. My ultimate goal is to provide professional, fun, clean beauty services and to make my clients feel amazingly special. I am a true believer in "When you look good, you feel good" and that is why I enjoy what I do everyday! I'm Erin Valaskatgis and I am the other half of The Artists Hair + Makeup. At age 5, when I taught myself how to braid on my Barbies, I knew I wanted to become a hair artist. After graduating from high school, I attended North Shore Community College for Cosmetology. This marks my sixth year in the beauty industry and my passion for hair & event styling has only grown. When Laura and I met, in 2010, we instantly clicked because we both shared the same passion for our careers. We decided, after years of careful consideration, to finally collaborate and begin our work as The Artists.
