We’re so proud of the passionate and talented makeup artists and hair stylists that represent LA Page Makeup at weddings and special events. Learn more about who may be working your event down below.

Meet Lauren: Owner & Lead Makeup Artist

My name is Lauren Simpson and I’m the owner of LA Page Makeup. I’ve been providing makeup services to CT and New England since 2010 and have found nothing lights up my world more than serving clients and giving them the confidence to shine!

I am a dog love, cheese is my kryptonite, and Netflix is seriously the best way to chill.

I have earned my beauty and theatrical makeup certificates, as well as certificates in lash lifting and tinting, brow lamination, and more. I also hold an esthetician’s license to be able to continue to perform makeup services in CT as of 2020. Continued education is so important to me!

My favorite part of doing makeup is the look of awe my clients get when they look in the mirror. If I can help give you the confidence and self-love to shine, I’ve done my job right!

Meet Danielle: Lead Makeup Artist

Hey gorgeous! My love for makeup stems from my passion for making people feel like their most fabulous self. Growing up with a cosmetologist for a mom, I was always playing with hair and makeup. My first product was a pink glitter lipgloss from Bath and Body Works, but I’ve since upgraded my collection to encompass the products and tools needs to create a range of beautiful looks.

Through a decade of growth, formal training and practice, my skills have been refined and perfected to give my clients the glam looks that they desire. Life may not be perfect, but your makeup can be!

Meet Tegan: Lead Hair Stylist & Makeup Artist

Hi there! My name is Tegan and I wear many hats, but “freelance hair and makeup artist” is one of my favorites!

I’ve been doing bridal hair (and many other special occasions) for nearly 20 years. I love the artistry of hair design and making hair dreams come true. We women are so hard on ourselves, and it’s my favorite thing to take the time to make someone feel really special and incredibly beautiful.

I’m so looking forward to working with you and helping highlight your natural beauty on your special day!

Meet Patty: Lead Hair Stylist
 
My name is Patty. I am a licensed cosmetologist and I have been in the industry for 10 years. For 7 of those years, I have been a bridal stylist. I also continue to educate myself on the latest trends for styling.
 
My goal is to make your special day stress free. I have a passion for making people feel good about themselves and that means making brides feel gorgeous and confident in themselves. I also love working with moms so they can feel great on their daughter’s or son’s big day while also making their bridal party feel as beautiful as ever.

Meet Johanna H: Hair Stylist
 
Hi! My name is Johanna. I usually like to go by “Jo”. I got my start in the hair world when I was a young girl. I spent a countless amount of time studying how precise and detailed the hairdressers at my mom’s salon were, so by the time I picked up my first blow dryer, hairstyling just came so naturally.
 
I’ve been styling hair professionally for 7+ years. My love, passion for styling and desire to understand the needs of my clients has helped me succeed in the industry. My main goal is to make sure anyone who sits in my chair leaves looking and feeling beautiful!

Meet Sara: Makeup Artist

Hi, I’m Sara! My interest in makeup was evident early on – I first experimented with colors while poking around in my mother’s cosmetics.  I began taking makeup artistry seriously as a career in 2011, when I completed my certificate in makeup artistry.

 
I’ve kept busy in the beauty world working behind the camera, teaching, and crafting the perfect look for my clients. I have represented such brands as Urban Decay, Tarte, Hourglass, and L’Occitane, and have attended numerous workshops and seminars to continue my makeup education. I also to taught the makeup course at a local cosmetology school where I instructed budding makeup artists in proper technique.
 

In addition to developing a lipstick with Three Custom Color Specialists and The Powder Group to benefit the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, I was honored to be assisting with the Look Good, Feel Better program, where I taught makeup classes to women who were undergoing cancer treatments. And since then I have become a licensed esthetician in Connecticut in 2020.

 
Through makeup, I aim to help others feel beautiful inside and out.  I love knowing that by accentuating someone’s outer beauty, I can help to bring out the confidence within them!
 

Meet Lauren V: Makeup Artist

As a makeup artist, I have pursued my passion for beauty for over a decade. Makeup and beauty has always made me feel creative and inspired. I am a Connecticut licensed makeup artist specializing in bridal airbrush makeup. 

To be apart of a bride’s wedding day is an honor. My goal is to assist the bride and attendants in feeling and looking their best on such a memorable day. Whether it’s a natural look or more glamorous, I understand the importance of listening to my clients to ensure they look amazing and feel confident. There is nothing more enjoyable than highlighting the natural beauty in every woman!

I’m also a mom to two boys and a fur baby named Murray (a “Dorkie” mix). I’m currently engaged to my fiancé, Joshua. For fun I enjoy the outdoors, travel, my peloton and crafts.
I’m looking forward to working with you! 
 

Meet Vanessa P: Makeup Artist

I have loved makeup ever since I was a little girl, thanks to my mom! I can remember sitting at the kitchen table and watching my mother in awe as she created the most glamorous looks on her beautiful face. This was all it took to know what I wanted to do when I grew up.

I have been working in the beauty industry for almost two decades now, and my passion for it continues to grow. For me, it is all more than just makeup. It is a connection to new people and reconnection with old friends on some of the most special days of their lives, and I am always thrilled to be a part of it.

I love skin care just as much as I love makeup because I believe that your makeup only looks as good as the skin underneath it. When I am not working with beauty clients, I am teaching yoga, hiking, meditating, eating yummy vegan food (especially sweets!) and spending time with my little Frenchie, Norman. It would be my pleasure to work with you and make you feel beautiful inside and out!

Meet Alicia R: Hair Stylist

Hi! My name is Alicia and I entered the beauty industry over 12 years ago.

Something I truly believe in is you can never stop learning; education in any industry can only help you expand and grow.

I have traveled throughout Connecticut and more styling brides on their special day. Being part of something so special is where my passion drives from. To make someone feel beautiful is truly a gift and there is no greater reward than a happy client.

Aside from my work, my husband, daughter, and “dood” [golden doodle dog] Penny are my whole world!

With all the inspiration and beauty this career has to offer, it’s become an addiction of mine making clients feel and look their best!

Meet Johanna N: Makeup Artist

I have been a professional makeup artist since 2012 after starting with my friends always asking me to do their makeup for them. I made sure to get the makeup certification to ensure I am always as sanitary as possible.

Fun facts about me include: I love watching plastic surgery on YouTube, I’m absolutely terrified of bugs, and I love laughing so much; it’s the best medicine!

Meet Carissa: Makeup Artist & Hair Stylist

My professional career began in 2008 upon graduating as a licensed hairstylist and certified esthetician. My passion for all things beauty related grew well before then. I’ve had an artistic eye since childhood along with an obsession of hair and makeup. There is truly no other path I could have chosen that would be as rewarding as this one has been.

My most favorite part of my job is handing over the mirror to a client and seeing their face light up. Everyone deserves to feel beautiful and confident in their own skin. I work to achieve this by enhancing one’s natural beauty and unique features.

Having worked in the industry as both a hairstylist and esthetician has given me an opportunity to work with a wide variety of different hair and skin types. Having that experience has been a tremendous help and you can rest easy knowing you are in good hands on your special day!

Meet Christine: Makeup Artist

Hi there! I am Christine and I have been in the beauty industry since 2013. My love for makeup started in high school when I was the one friend who was getting all of our friends ready for school dances, or our high school color guard competitions. I was the cut crease and winged eyeliner guru.
 
After high school I pursued a career in social work, and felt like something was missing. I began exploring this creative side and began taking makeup courses and haven’t stopped since! I have  experience in the areas of bridal, special events, head shots, and makeup lessons. I specialize in airbrush, traditional and HD makeup.
 
I have a wide range of capabilities but love glowing skin and brows. I believe enhancing one’s natural beauty is at the forefront. I love using my passion for makeup artistry to make women feel their best. I take pride in working with brides and making them feel stunning on their wedding day. I love to make you feel like you, but just amplified.
 
In my free time, I am a mommy of two named Francesca and Jaxon. I love spending time with family, and to wind down at night I enjoy curling up in bed with a good book. I look forward to working with you on your special day.

Meet Jessica: Hair Stylist
 
My name is Jessica and I have been a hair stylist for about 17 years! I work in a salon as well as travel for special events. Being able to create a style or look for someone’s special day brings great joy to me! I love to make people feel just as amazing on the inside as well as the outside! My free time is spent with my two children and husband. My other passions are yoga, hiking and being outside.
