Story

Hey Hey!

Kathy and Janais, Co-founders and leaders of Curled + Contoured here!

C+C is a hassle free, flat fee booking hair and make up service company. You can expect speedy email replies for all of your questions and concerns (before and after booking!). You can also expect high quality artistry and we know this might be a bit bias here, but…we are a pretty fun group to also have around while getting glammed. Love a girl chat session! We will make sure you'll look good in all of your photos that you'll be reminiscing and treasuring for the rest of your life.  We know you want to be comfortable and feel like yourself on your big day, But… also make you feel like an elevated and glam version of yourself!

Let us guess, you want a messy but polished updo, or you would like a natural but dramatic makeup? lol We've heard it all and we can help! We know hair + makeup can be confusing when picking what specific look to go for on your important day. We will help guide you to that perfect look by asking all the questions about your personal style, your ensemble, your venue, weather and even your photographer choice will help us figure out that perfect glam. We also care about your entire wedding party and guests. We offer touch-ups hourly or for the day. Touch-ups can be just for you or for your party as well. And last but not least, we cannot forget about the boys, Male grooming services are also available!

How we got started...

Kathy being a full-time freelance makeup artist and Janais being  a full-time freelance hair stylist, we kept meeting on different jobs and after some lunch over pizza one day, found out that we were both raised in Queens, NY. Not too far from each other either, which is crazy. Kinda meant to be lol. As some time went on, we ended up becoming very close friends. Soon after had an “A-HA!" moment, realizing that we both have the same passion to run a beauty service business. After some brainstorming sessions, here we are!
 

Actually, HOLD UP. Let's get a little more personal with our Co-Founders!

JANAIS LOPEZ

Co-Founder

FL Lead

A little bit about Janais:

Opposite of Kathy- You’ll notice me from a mile away with my extrovert personality.

Always buying and trying new hair care. I swear by hair oils/ hair masks.

When I'm not working, you can find me relaxing at the beach.

Miami, FL is my new home, but NY will always have my heart.

You can take the girl out of NY, but you can't take the NY accent out of the girl!

  • Sneaker addict

  • Could watch Friends re-runs for the rest of my life

  • Endless amounts of sour candies please

  • Coffee always!

  • Tanning at the beach
