  • I attended a high profile wedding at the Lowe’s Hotel in Chicago and really needed a wow factor look! Kate’s creative and eligant ideas really pulled through and I truly felt glamorous. Can’t wait to use her services again. Both my hair and makeup were fabulous and lastest all night without any need for touch up.

  • Kate was the perfect hair/makeup artist for my engagement ceremony. She was great to work with from the date we initially talked through the big day. She created beautiful designs for hair and makeup for myself and my mom and the final product did not disappoint. Planning an engagement can be stressful but Kate helped make the process of getting ready enjoyable, coordinating with me and calming nerves along the way. As a bride you want to enjoy this momentous occasion and the smiles that day said it all. Our guests were very complimentary too. Thank you Kate for your professionalism throughout (and for having us ready immediately for the ceremony 😊) In all sincerity, you will not be disappointed if you choose Kate Johnson Artistry for your event

  • Kate is a phenomenal artist, woman, and business owner!! I had been following her on social media and when my planner recommended her, I didn't even call anyone else! We completely hit it off from the first phone call. She was super accommodating, considering I was planning my Chicago wedding from San Diego. She calmed my nerves the day of my wedding, did outstanding work with my bridal party, and my makeup was out of this world! Even the day before, when I had a horrible incident with a different spray tan business owner - there was Kate, willing to come to my rescue! Her personal eyelash line is awesome - I bought myself a second set! Kate is extremely knowledgeable, professional, kind, and reliable. She's honestly everything I'd look for in a personal friend, and she made my day perfect. I can't wait to have a reason to call Kate again - she's the best!

  • I made a fairly last minute decision to get the concierge service. Kate called me right away, put me at ease, and paired me with Rosie. Rosie also got in touch with me the same day to set up a trial. I met with her the weekend before my wedding and she nailed my hair and make up on the first try! Kate and Rosie got me and my bridal party ready on my wedding day, and we felt like the most beautiful women in the world! They did such a fantastic job! Then we were off with Rosie by my side all day. She was so much more than my make up artist-she was our official “hype girl“ making us smile and laugh all day through pictures, comforting me through all my panic moments, making sure we all had everything we needed in pictures, and crying with me before I walked down the aisle with my dad. I just can’t say enough about Rosie and Kate. !!

    Hi Amanda what a fun day that was!! So happy we could both be there. Can’t wait to see pictures when you get them!

  • Kate Johnson Artistry is great! I was looking for a place where I did not have to sign up the whole bridal party for makeup as it can get very pricey. Kate Johnson was flexible with allowing us to choose the number of girls that were partaking in services, and pricing was a lot more reasonable than other salons I had looked into. Lauren from Kate Johnson did my makeup and she is so amazing! During the trial, I showed her several inspiration pictures but not being a makeup guru, I let her take the lead. She did such a beautiful job and made me feel comfortable in my own skin while glamming it up a bit. On the wedding day, it was so nice to have someone as calm and sweet as Lauren around. She did makeup for my mom, my sister and me on my big day. We all felt so beautiful, and the makeup lasted throughout the day flawlessly, even in the summer. Lauren and I became friends through our time together, and I cherish the memories from being pampered and feeling my absolute best. Thank you Kat... Read more

  • Kate did an amazing job on my hair and make-up for my wedding day. I have a lot of hair, and I was little worried that my hair would be looking pretty sad by the end of the night. However, I didn't need to worry in Kate's capable hands. She crafted a stunning undo that looked great both with and without my veil, and that stayed put throughout the night. Kate also is an amazingly talented make-up artist who really listened to me when I described how I wanted to look. I'd suggest that clients also book a trial appointment with Kate in advance. I loved my look after my trial, and it was great to make sure that what I thought I wanted was actually what I wanted prior to my big day. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone who wants to look extra special.

  • Kate was ALWAYS soo responsive to all emails and she allowed me soo much flexibility with my trial for dates/times. On the actual wedding day, she was on time, and even more, she was just soo much fun to have around. I loved working with her that day, and she made my hair look incredible! Even when there was one bridesmaid who was not happy with her hair, Kate and Rosie made sure to take the time to fix and update to ensure every single girl was happy. Thank You Kate and Rosie for being an important of such a special day!

  • This is a long overdue review! Kate and her team did a fantastic job on my make up & hair for my big day. They also did make-up for all of my bridesmaids, my mother, and the mother of the groom. Everyone looked gorgeous! After taking some beautiful photos in the snow, I was on the verge of my first "Bridezilla" moment. My hair was so wet, my curls started to fall (understandably). My make-up was amazingly completely still intact! Thankfully Kate was able to come back right before my ceremony and fix my hair. I have never been so relieved! Her team truly went above and beyond. I would highly recommend Kate and her team.

    Oh Kristie what a fun day that was!! Your pictures in snow are incredible and I’m so glad your planner called and I could come back. It was my pleasure and I was happy to help!

  • Before booking: Kate was super responsive and so easy to work with. She really took the time to listen to what I wanted. Rosie- Rosie was my makeup artist and she was fantastic. My ceremony and reception were on two different days and Rosie and I wanted two different looks. Old school glam and more of a party look for our nye reception. Rosie nailed both of them. I wouldn’t have changed anything. As an added bonus, Rosie’s an awesome person! Chris did the makeup for my family and everyone looked amazing. Each person knew what look they were going for and Chris brought it to life. Everyone was so impressed.

  • Wow! Wow! Wow! We booked Kate Johnson Artistry for my wedding last month and couldn't have asked for better service. We booked hair and makeup for me, the ladies in our bridal party and both mothers and we were so thankful we did. Everyone looked amazing, and was happy with how they looked... a couple of the girls who were recently married even said they looked better than they did on their own wedding days! Everyone brought hair and makeup inspiration and felt listened to. The hair stylist and makeup artist spent plenty of time with each person, were friendly, but were also efficient and stayed on schedule. I couldn't have been happier and would highly recommend them to any bride

  • Rosie Hunter from Kate Johnson artistry is nothing short of amazing. She was the perfect amount of laid back and sassy. She fit right in with our group. She made me feel very comfortable and did exactly what I had imagined without me even being able to describe it well. I will always be grateful for Rosie!

  • Using Kate Johnson Artistry for my daughter’s wedding hair and makeup was such a fabulous decision! Every member of the wedding party (seven bridesmaids!) looked simply beautiful -- and especially my daughter, the bride. While of course I am just a bit biased, many people commented that she looked like a movie star. Rosie Hunter could not have been more patient, receptive to each woman’s preferences, and professional throughout the long day of preparation. As mother of the bride, I was worried that my hair, which was shedding in the weeks before the August 25 wedding due to a serious illness I’d had in April, would look flat, thin and not hold up during the whole busy day. My insecurities we totally unfounded -- it held its style all day and night, and had the natural look I had hoped for. A wedding guest, also a hair stylist, actually commented that she loved my hair! But the star of the show was my daughter. She was simply radiant. Naturally, she was glowing with happ... Read more

  • Kate and her team were completely flawless, I would recommend them to anyone. She did my engagement photos, a trial, and my wedding day hair/makeup - all of it was simply perfection. Every single person on her team listened to exactly what my bridesmaids wanted for hair/makeup and executed it perfectly. They were the most pleasant people to work with throughout the entire process and made everyone look their absolute best. End product aside, it was the most fluid and speediest hair/makeup team I have ever experienced at a wedding. Nothing felt rushed, but we were done in plenty of time for photos despite having 14 people having services done. Kate was incredibly easy to communicate with and responded immediately to any and all e-mails I sent. If you want amazing hair and makeup done by someone who truly understands how both components work together to create a beautiful bride/bridal party, there is nobody better than Kate!!! She’s the best!!!!

  • I booked Kate’s team through an Elope to Chicago package for our early August 2018 wedding. I’ve never had my hair and makeup professionally done, so I wasn’t totally sure what to expect. Kate was the utmost professional, made me feel comfortable, and helped me achieve a look I loved! She was easy to communicate with, both in person and over email. I also appreciate that Kate was honest about what work well with my skin and hair type. I even learned a few makeup tips that I can use every day. I am happy to recommend Kate and her team to other brides (or someone looking for special occasion hair & makeup) in the Chicago area! - Blaire

  • I’m so happy I chose Kate Johnson Artistry for my big day. My hair and makeup stylist was Rosie and she was fabulous. Her personality was great and my bridal party also loved her. She was accompanied by Celena who also rocked. The woman on my bridal party ranged from 56 to 8. She made everyone of their looks unique and perfectly tailored to them. I highly recommend! Thanks again ladies!
