hair & makeup artist

I discovered my passion for hair and makeup while spending many of my childhood days in my mothers salon. I always thought it would be nothing more than an interest and a hobby. I never realized that it would be apart of who I am today. After graduating high school, I forced myself to go to college not realizing my ideal career was right in front of my eyes. Halfway through my first semester I came to a conclusion that a traditional college wasn’t for me. I felt like everyday that passed was a waste of my time and I wasn't getting anything accomplished.  That weekend I was getting my hair done at my mothers salon and a light bulb went off. I looked at my mother and said “ I think I would be a really good hairstylist.”  Without hesitation she completely agreed, but of course followed with the pros and cons of the career. 

 

In 2009, I received my cosmetology license. I graduated Paul Mitchell Cosmetology School with honors, and numerous awards. Shortly after graduating I started my career in a salon located in Smithfield, RI. I was a stylist there for four years and then realized that there wasn’t any more room for growth.  September of 2013, I relocated to JLS Hair Design in North Providence, RI. Here I began my career as an independent stylist. In such a short period of time I felt like my skills progressed tremendously. Working with other motivated and passionate stylists gave me a new outlook on my career. Ive learned that continuing education is the key to success! 

 

My drive and passion for my career keeps expanding. About three years ago now I realized that I had a niche for Bridal Hair and Makeup. I freelanced for a few Bridal beauty companies to start getting my hands in bridal work. Now I am continuously busy with my own client referrals that I decided to start branding myself. Bianca Nastari Hair & Makeup Designs, is an on location Bridal beauty service.  I work along side of a few handpicked artists that I feel represent my style and brand. I am extremely passionate about my work and am honored that each bride has chosen me to be apart of their special day. 

 

Along with my bridal talents of airbrush makeup and romantic updo’s. My other specialties include blonding and balayage services, and hair extensions.

I am truly blessed, that I love my career! I appreciate every interaction with my clients and brides. Making woman feel beautiful, confident and happy is extremely rewarding. I also have the greatest support team by my side. My parents are my biggest fans, and my fiancé will do anything to help me achieve my dreams. 

 

Im looking forward to making you feel beautiful.

Love notes,

Words can't explain how happy I am that I chose Bianca as my hair and make up artist my my big day. The moment I got engaged she's the first vendor I contacted and never searched further! I had a hair band I wanted to use and she created an updo that made it even more beautiful. I also told her I wanted to easily remove my veil after the ceremony and she placed it perfectly that it didn't mess up at all when I took it out. I've been to so many weddings where the hair is falling out hair way through, not with her! My hair was a perfect at the end of the night as it was the second she was done. My make up was great as I was skeptical of air brush and not looking natural but she did a beautiful job on me and all my girls where everyone looked laundry. She'll work with your budget and any amount of bridesmaids you bring along! Overall everyone was so happy with her work. She's also in a few of my wedding photos so I'll always remember she was a part of my big day. I always tell anyone I know getting married to use her, she's the best! - Molly F

Bianca did my hair and makeup for my wedding, and I couldn't be happier! I contacted her very last minute and she was able to move her whole day around to do my wedding. She even fit me in for a trial a couple weeks before the wedding. I was very weary of having someone else do my makeup, as I have never had anyone but myself do it. She did airbrush makeup on me and it looked amazing, and lasted all night! My hair was the perfect updo for my winter wedding dress and I received so many compliments on both my hair and makeup throughout the entire night. She also did my family's hair and they all loved theirs as well! She is professional and very sweet- I highly recommend Bianca to anyone, you will not be disappointed! - Colleen K

Bianca has been doing my hair for years now, so when it came time to book hair and makeup for my wedding she was a no brainier. She is absolutely amazing and and incredibly talented. The pride she takes in her work is apparent from the minute you meet her. She wants you to feel beautiful and goes out of her way to make sure you do. I was lucky enough to have her do my makeup a few times prior to my wedding for engagement photos and a boudoir, so I didn't do a formal makeup trial with her for my wedding but I couldn't have been happier. It looked amazing. She really listened to what I wanted and the end result was exactly what I had in mind. For my hair I just wanted to leave it down with some loose curls. Everyone kept telling me "do something special, it needs to be different". When I went to my hair trial with Bianca, she told me to only do what would make me feel comfortable and that I had to love myself in the pictures. She showed me various options for my hair while still leaving most of it down. In the end, I decided to leave it down with the curls but felt more confident in my decision because of her help and guidance. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch, Bianca and her team showed up (early!) and got everything set up and ready to go. My girls looked incredible! I told them they could do whatever they wanted with their hair and they all ended up choosing half up half down, but Bianca and her team made sure each hairstyle was unique in it's own way so they didn't all look exactly the same. Of course it was rainy and humid so I was nervous about my hair being frizzy. I don't know what she did but there was no frizz in sight. I made it through our first look, on sight and off sight photos, and only touched up a few pieces right before the ceremony. I was shocked when I saw my photos and my curls were still intact despite the massive amount of humidity that day. Also, my make up didn't move an inch. It looked the same at the end of the night as it did at the beginning, despite the humid day and sweat from dancing. I'm telling you you need to hire Bianca. On top of making you look and feel incredible on your big day, she is one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet, incredibly reliable, and insanely talented. Thank you Bianca and team for making us look amazing! - Jen L
