Meet The Artists

"I'm Laura Severino, co-owner of The Artists Hair + Makeup. After many years in the healthcare field, I decided to make a career change for something that I truly love. I'm passionate about the beauty industry, not because of vanity, but because I love helping others feel confident and amazing! I graduated from the Elizabeth Grady school of Esthetics in 2010, and I have over 8 years experience in this field. My specialty is Bridal Makeup. My goal is to provide professional, fun, clean beauty services to your location and make my clients feel amazingly special." 

"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. We are so excited to begin this new journey!"


"I'm Ashley and I am a freelance hair artist! I fell in love with hair styling at a very young age and decided to pursue it as a career over four years ago. As a graduate of the Peabody High Cosmetology program I began working full-time at a salon right out of high school. I learned very quickly that hairstyling and updos were definitely some of my strengths so I made sure to attend classes and always stay on top of new techniques. I take pride in my work and in seeing the reaction of my guests when their hair looks just like they imagined."  


"I'm Madison Biondo and I am a freelance hair artist for The Artists. Doing hair is my passion; it is something I have always loved. Growing up I always knew I wanted to work in the beauty industry. I couldn't wait to go to cosmetology school. I attended Hairs How Modern School of Beauty in 2014, two months after graduating high school. I've been doing hair since then and I truly couldn't be any happier with my career choice. There is nothing better than making people feel beautiful!"
