Hair & Makeup Unveiled, LLC is an award winning, on-site bridal hair and makeup company servicing brides and bridal parties all over the Virginia, Maryland, & DC area. For six consecutive years, our clients have helped us to win awards from both WeddingWire and The Knot with their amazing reviews and kind words. Our work has been featured on the cover of Virginia Bride Magazine and Bellissima Bride, as well as interior features in various other publications and bridal blogs.

Nicole McConnell, Owner and Master Stylist, was born and raised in Burke, Virginia. A mother of four children, she started her own bridal hair company in 2011, using her talent with updos and her dazzling personality to woo clients. In 2013, Hair and Makeup Unveiled was formed, combining Nicole's talents with bridal makeup services from the amazing Kelly Evans of K.E. Bridal Makeup. Upon Kelly's retirement from the bridal industry to focus on her growing family, Nicole ran all aspects of the business by herself for over a year, until asking Laura to come on board.


"I love weddings...the dress, the flowers, the decor.  Being able to be part

of one of the biggest days in someone's life is incredible.  

Placing the veil, seeing them put on their dress...

it's like reliving my own wedding all over again...

minus all the stress!"
                                                 -Nicole McConnell, Master Stylist & Owner




While business is important to us, what is more important is building trusting relationships with our clients. Whether it be accommodating the last minute additions for hair and makeup, or just being a listening ear for our clients when they are feeling overwhelmed with all the wedding planning, we take great pride in knowing that our clients trust us and are comfortable with us. 

Trusted Client/Vendor Relationships - We strive to establish an amazing relationship with each and every one of our clients.   We are with our clients every step of the way in the hair and makeup process.  We are not the type of artists that you will only hear from 1-2 times before your big day.  In fact, by the time your wedding is over and your off to your honeymoon, you will probably be thankful not to hear from us. We have listened to our clients cry, laugh, and sometimes even just call because they needed to vent.  We are honored to be able to call a few of these previous clients of ours friends.

Customized Service - Keeping stress levels low is important for both us and you! In an attempt to make your planning process easier, we work closely with our clients to create the perfect day-of timeline so that you don't have to deal with the stress of being the "bad guy"  or the "bridezilla" because you wanted someone to arrive by 7 am.  


Flexibility - Being in this industry for many years now, we know that a lot can change during the wedding planning process.  One of the hardest parts of any wedding is trying to nail down was how many people desire hair and/or makeup services.  It is especially hard when you are booking a year out.  For each contract we receive, we assign a deadline date. Providing we can accommodate the changes, brides can increase or decrease their number of services up until the assigned date. 

No Minimums - Why should someone with a smaller bridal party not be able to get their hair and makeup done?  At Hair & Makeup Unveiled we strongly support even our smaller bridal parties by not having a minimum!
