#1 Melissa Ann Artistry + Co - Pewaukee, WI

We're Interviewing: Melissa, Owner

Melissa Doing Makeup

About the Business!

Hi, I am Melissa Story, owner and lead makeup artist of Melissa Ann Artistry + Co formerly known as Melissa Ann Makeup Artistry. After being in business for myself, for the past 12 years I decided to do a little business venture. I formed a team of stylists and opened a larger studio. My company now offers not only makeup applications, but event hair styling too!

I used to feel bad, turning down so many weddings when I worked by myself. When you’re alone, you really can’t do more than two weddings in a weekend. Creating a team was a must really. I have no idea why I even waited this long! The wedding business is such a great industry to be in, and my group of artists LOVE the business, as much as I do. I truly am blessed to have such a great team. Having the added hair services makes booking so much easier too, on the clients!

Our company supplies In Studio or On-Location Hair and Makeup beauty services. Our specialty is the Bridal Industry, but we also have the ability to service any event styling, such as: Boudoir, Maternity, School Events, Photo Shoots, Date Nights/Special Occasions, even Lessons!

Our expertise and years of experience brings award winning editorial makeup and hair artistry to the next level. We aim to give a relaxing, stress free and enjoyable experience. Ask any of our past clients!

What services can you provide on my wedding day:

We are an event styling beauty team. We provide beautiful creative hair trends ranging from sleek sophisticated to award winning braids and bohemian masterpieces. Our makeup is top notch, with highly skilled makeup artists. We offer traditional or airbrush makeup applications and strip lash services. Not only do we travel to you on your wedding day, we also offer our own unique studio for rent.

Melissa, can you show us some photos?

What can you tell us about location?

The majority of our business is traveling and providing onsite Bridal hair styling and makeup services, throughout Wisconsin. Our studio is located in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. We share the space with Studio 360, who I have ventured together with on a Unique Bridal Suite, known as ‘The White Room.’ We allow our clients to rent out and host the initial getting ready portion of the day, in the studio space. This is no ordinary salon, I promise you! We offer a ‘real,’ creative twist to not only bridal and beauty, but to photography. This space takes the stress out of trying to figure out, “where to go,” for the initial “getting ready,” portion of the day. The space is perfect for those brides that cannot get into their wedding venue at a certain time-or simply have no place to go. Especially if they have a large bridal party.

Leave behind the hassle of renting a hotel room, VRBO, or coordinating someone’s house to get ready at. Our Bridal Venue makes getting ready, a whole lot more fun! More information about The White Room can be found on the website.

What can I expect if I hire you?

Booking our services is simple. Clients can fill out a booking form, located on our website. Within 24 hours, a client is immediately communicating with me (Melissa). I handle all the bookings. Therefore, if there are any issues, we can correct them immediately. Plus, with me involved in the booking process, I can determine which artists on my team are the best for the client. Clients are allowed to request me personally for their makeup services; however, I do fill up fast and I book on a first come, first serve basis with those requests. Our company does have a minimum service requirement during our high peak weddings season, May-October. We can accommodate smaller parties for an extra fee.

All of our clients are welcome to schedule a trial. Trials are optional, and we typically like to schedule them 3-4 months before the wedding day. Trials are a great way for a client to meet their artist and discuss their look. The artist you trial with, will be the same artist for your wedding day.

30 days before the event, I go over with the client the final beauty details of that day. I make sure everything is communicated correctly between the bride and the artists, before arriving that day. A week before, I reached out once more to make sure there had not been any last-minute changes. On the actual day, our artists will be professional and prompt. We bring all our own supplies and material needed for the day. The services portion should really be very efficient and stress free!

About the Business!

My name is Pam and I am the owner/lead makeup artist for take forty five - airbrush makeup artist.

I became a state licensed esthetician through The Salon Professional Academy, and then earned my Certificate in Advanced Makeup from the Aveda Institute. I love to offer a luxurious experience for my client's wedding day utilizing the advanced training and years of experience I have gained. My main focus is to accentuate one’s own natural beauty!

All of my brides receive trial consultations where you meet me, your makeup artist, learn the properties of airbrush makeup, evaluate your skin, discuss your preferences and then apply the makeup. If you feel we are a good fit and are ready to say yes, I require a Retainer Fee, 50% of the total investment, to secure your date. Along the way, you will receive emails with skincare tips, beauty tricks and other wedding related items leading up to your big day. The night before your wedding, I will go over all our notes from previous conversations, pack up everything I need (plus extras) and get a good night’s sleep. The morning of your wedding, I will arrive 15 minutes before makeup starts to set everything up. You will feel relaxed knowing I’m on your team making your morning go nice and smooth!

What is my relationship to the featured wedding vendors? I am always transparent with my audience. These vendors were hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were each charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
