Makeup and Hair has always been a big part of my life. I wanted to find a way to take my passion and create it into my career. Luxe & Co. began its journey as J.R.S. Makeup Artistry many years ago in the kitchen of my home. Many brides came there to begin the journey of creating the look they envisioned for their wedding day with myself ( doing the makeup) and a hair stylist. After seeing that business start to thrive I moved into a small studio in West Islip to give my brides a more professional place to come for their bridal trails. My business began to grow. One makeup artist and one hair stylist grew to more than 13 team members going out and working on location at weddings and special events. J.R.S. Was honored with many awards including the Couples Choice Award and the Wedding Wire Award as well as awards from The Knot, for our service and 5 star ratings from over 50 brides!
In an effort to continue to grow and give our community something it is lacking, I created Luxe & Co. to work alongside my growing and successful bridal and special event business. A beautiful storefront located in bustling Babylon Village. We are the first Blowdry bar to open on the South Shore of Long Island. We can now offer our brides not only a beautiful place to get ready on their wedding day, but a place to come for all their makeup and hair needs. Now our clients have a company they can trust for makeup and hair for their Engagement Photos, Bridal Showers, Bachelorette Party's and Rehearsal Dinners.
I also wanted to give the local women a place to come and relax, so making Luxe a “spa like” experience was important to me. With in and out makeup and hair services it is the perfect place to come before heading to a special event or just to make yourself feel good. Luxe & Co. believes all women should have a place to help them become beautiful. I like to call it the “affordable luxury”. Our blowouts typically last up to 4 days with the right aftercare products. We also offer Monthly Memberships and Packages to save all our customers money.
I hope you love Luxe & Co. as much as I do. This has been an incredible journey and we cannot wait to make you feel beautiful at Luxe!
