"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 10 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 eleventh 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. "

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."
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!"

That finished look when a bride is all glammed up, feeling the most beautiful she's 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!"
