Wedding day, for most, is not just about one day. It is the days, months, sometimes years leading up to that special day, which include organizing family events, hair and makeup appointments for the bride, groom, bridesmaids, as well as coordinating the music, jewelry, etc. And the memories of that wedding day are sure to last a lifetime. No task goes under more personal stress, personalization, and preparation than the appearance of the bride. The bride is clearly the star of ceremony and will be photographed more than just about anyone in the wedding. No offense grooms, but this is based on my extensive research of weddings from a personal standpoint. Being in an Irish family, you tend to attend a few weddings.
The North Kingstown Blog is thrilled to welcome and help you get to know Jaclynn Kate Hair and Makeup Artistry. I was recently introduced to this local North Kingstown salon by someone who is in the process of planning a very special wedding that I will also be attending, my fiance Rachel. Here is an excerpt from my conversation with the owner, Jaclynn Kate.
Nice to meet you Jaclynn. Tell me about your salon and what it offers.
Thanks so much for writing about us. Jaclynn Kate Hair & Makeup Artistry is an on-site bridal beauty business that offers luxury services to brides across New England. We provide high definition air brush makeup applications and soft vintage hair styling to our bridal parties. We were established in 2011 and proudly have won three awards from “The Knot” wedding network.
Beautiful job on Rachel’s hair recently by the way. So, when did Jaclynn Kate Hair & Makeup Artistry open here in North Kingstown?
Do you offer any special discounts for new clients visiting your salon?
Yes, all first times clients receive 15% off their service with us in the salon. And on my website, I have convenient phone numbers for both the salon and bridal inquiries. We would love to hear from you if you are interested in hearing more about our services.
So, you have been in the beauty industry for several years as not only a beauty consultant but also a beauty contestant. Can you tell us more about that part of your career?
Yes, I just won this year’s platform of 2015 Ms. Rhode Island New England States and I have high hopes in continuing my volunteer work with different charity organizations. Most important, I now have the opportunity and ability to give back. I currently volunteer with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Ocean State as a “Big” to play a guiding role in lives of our youth in need. I have been working towards development of my own non profit which will allow for me to help women who are struggling financially get prepared for “new beginnings”.
And professionally speaking, you have been awarded some very prestigious honors in your business career as well.
Yes, I was nominated by the Rhode Island Small Business Journal as “Entrepreneur of the Year” for 2013 & 2014 along with 3 years of consecutive “The Best of Weddings” awards from beauty industry giant “The Knot.” I am truly blessed and humbled by these awards and look to bring my experience and talents to make your wedding the most incredible and memorable experience.
So where can potential clients find you on social media and connect with you locally at your salon?
Sure, our contact information in North Kingstown is:
The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
