Meet The Artists

Laura Severino
Co-Owner

"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." 


Erin Valaskatgis
Co-Owner

"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!"

 

Ayshleane De Los Santos
Freelance Hair Artist

"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."  

 

Madison Biondo
Freelance Hair Artist

"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!"

 

Taylor Cognato
Freelance Makeup Artist

"I'm Taylor and I'm a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist! I have been doing freelance makeup for three years, and am a graduate of Spa Tech Institute. I have had an interest and passion for makeup and skincare from an early age, and I began as a self-taught artist. My favorite part of this field is helping all my clients to see their own natural beauty!"

 


John Sheehan

Freelance Hair Artist

"I've been doing special event hair since before I even attended Cosmetology School. I got my first wedding styling position right after I graduated in 2012. My absolute favorite of any wedding I style is the moment when I put the veil on my bride and she sees herself as a bride for the very first time. The look in her and her bridesmaids eyes is so heartwarming! It really makes me grateful to be in a position such as this. I am thrilled to be working with The Artists as I really believe in what they stand for and the integrity of their work. I couldn't be more excited!"


Lindsey Nasser
Freelance Hair/Makeup Artist

"Hair and Makeup is my passion! I love being able to transform clients, whether it be behind the chair or a bridal squad. That finished look when a bride is all glammed up, feeling the most beautiful shes ever looked is my motivation! I love being in this industry and I knew this was what i was meant to do since i was young. I graduated NSCC with a license in Cosmetology in 2013. I've been in a the business since and I wouldn't change it for the world!"
