I didn't realize when I was a kid that I would one day turn my love for hair styling and makeup into a full business. Now I can't imagine doing anything else!

I have been working in the beauty industry since 2015 and since then have helped countless brides in Tennessee and Hawaii perfect the bridal looks for their wedding day.

When I'm not rocking a curling iron you can find me sipping on Body Armour, watching Friends, or planning a beach trip with my husband, son & our 2 dogs!

Hello & Welcome! I'm Caitlin!

aka your Beauty Bestie for your Best Day Ever!

Nashville Wedding Hair & Makeup Artist

Braids and Blush offers both hair styling and makeup for your wedding or event.

Nashville Bridal Hair and Makeup

While my weekends are filled with weddings, I also offer hair styling and makeup services for other special events such as prom, galas, concerts, photoshoots... basically, if you have any reason to be dolled up, sign me up!

And, yes, I believe there is always a reason to treat yourself and get pampered.

"Omg Caitlin is an amazing hairstylist and makeup artist! If I can give her a million stars, definitely would! I showed her my inspo pic from Pinterest and she nailed the look to the T! Her bridal makeup application was perfect! It didn't feel heavy or caked on at all! It's all very long lasting and sweat proof! You can definitely go hiking and none of it will melt off your face even with 100% humidity and light rain drizzle. Her personality just makes the whole vibe and experience even more enjoyable. If you haven't book with her yet, you need to do it now! I will definitely be booking with Caitlin for all future events."

"I had the privilege of having Caitlin do the hair and makeup for my wedding. She was not only insanely talented but incredibly nice as well! She listened to exactly what I was envisioning for myself and for by bridesmaids, and was able to make it come to life! She took her time, yet was so efficient with making sure each and every person was done on time. I cannot recommend her enough! She is amazing!"

"My experience with Caitlin has been nothing short of phenomenal! I guarantee she will put a smile on your face when you open your eyes and see your hair and makeup just like how I experienced! She is very responsive any time I’ve ever reached out to her to schedule an appointment. She is super sweet and really easy to talk to during your session. She has done my makeup while we lived in Hawaii. I’m really sad she’s leaving but I know the community of Nashville is getting a great makeup & hair stylist for any special event you might need to attend or get dressed up for!!!"

"Caitlin made my hair and makeup exactly how I wanted! She was so sweet to always check in during the process to see if the hair placement was how I wanted. My makeup was natural to my complection, and lasted six hours, and could have lasted longer. She was prompt and professional. I would 20/10 recommend her for any event that is needed to have makeup and an updo to go to!"

"Caitlin is Excellent! Easy to communicate with and very responsive. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable, but most importantly she is a highly skilled makeup artist. Made my makeup and skin look flawless, and received so many compliments!!! Can’t imagine going to any other makeup artist other than her! She is also double-hatted as a hairstylist and gave me the sleekest Hailey Bieber Bun EVER and I did not want to take it out!"

"I had the pleasure of meeting miss Cait for the first time when she asked me to photograph her giveaway! Not only does she have unquestionable talent with hair and makeup, she is extremely sweet, professional, and takes her complete time to make sure her craft exceeds all expectations!!! I'm happy we continue to work together professionally and remain great friends!"

"Caitlin is a true professional! She did an amazing job and I felt so beautiful after she did her magic. I loved how convenient it was to have hair and make-up done at my house before the event. She was so friendly and easily to coordinate with. I highly recommend her services!"

"Caitlin is the absolute best! She is so professional at her craft, and personable in her way to connect with you when you are in her chair. She makes you feel like you have been friends for forever, all while making you feel beautiful with her skill. She goes above and beyond for her clients and listens very well. She is professional, punctual, and passionate. You won't regret using her for your hair and makeup needs!"

"Caitlin is super sweet and super down to earth. I needed hairdo and makeup for a military ball, many wives recommended her, so I reach out and she quickly responded and I was able to book with her about a month in advance. I was excited since she was coming to my home which was so convenient for me. She was gentle and easy to talk to. She was very professional. I would definitely hire her again. I was very happy and loved how everything turned."
