We are Kate Ford Beauty Inc! We specialize in BOTH hair and makeup and travel to your location as well as have an in home studio/salon! We make it convenient for our clients. So where ever they prefer and whichever makes them feel more comfortable to do their trials is up to them. Myself and my team are very passionate about what we do. There is no greater feeling then after both hair and makeup are completed and a client looks into the mirror and they have that “oh my gosh” moment because they love it. It really warms our heart. We connect with our clients and really do a detailed consultation before we start any service to make sure we really understand their vision and want to create it in real life for them.

The Wedding Industry
I got into the wedding industry because I am so passionate about making people feel their best. What better event to do so then on the most memorable day of their lives! The fact that my team and I get to make such an impact on their morning means the world to us. From glamming up bridesmaids, to mothers, to grandmas (of course the bride!) we get to make everyone feel special and beautiful.
The Wedding Memories
My favorite wedding memory has to be one of our brides we did in 2018. We met at a bridal expo one year out from her wedding. Our personalities instantly clicked. She called me not much later to do a trial and it was for her 30th birthday party. We had so much fun. She then booked us for every event leading up to her wedding in that year. From meeting her mother, mother in law, sisters, and her friends, the day of her wedding felt like i was there to help out a friends wedding. She hired me to stay for touch up services and was able to sit in on her ceremony. I cried! It was so beautiful and bittersweet that I got to be such a HUGE part of her and her fiancée’s (now husband) day. I really like to connect with my clients and it’s special when these “clients” really turn into friends.
We specialize in all things beauty! Myself and my team each have a look we love the most. From traditional/classic styles, to boho/whimsical, all the way to dramatic/full glam and big hair (that’s my favorite!)
Ive been doing makeup since 2005 and hair since 2014. I’ve worked with so many cosmetic companies & bridal companies that it made me realize how much I love to meet new people and how eager it made me to want to work. I left all bridal companies, and I even resigned from being an account executive for a cosmetic line to start my own business. I had to take a leap of faith that this was going to work! I truly love doing hair and makeup for people. They say you never work a day in your life when you love what you do, and it’s true! I am very blessed that I have the clients I have and trust me with their vision. There’s no bigger compliment then a referral. And a HUGE thank you to all my clients who really help myself, my team, and my company grow! Luckily, we’ve gotten so busy that I had to hire a team of makeup artists and hair stylists. Kate Ford Beauty Inc. Isn’t just me, “Kate Ford” it’s also my team who does a lot of the work and is what helps our company grow. I hire true artists who share the same morals and aspirations as I do. Who really love what they do and it shows in their work!
We are all about self-love and self-care. I really enjoy going to the gym, occasionally getting manicures and pedicures, and what girl doesn’t love shopping or “retail therapy” as I call it! We also to spend time with our families and friends. There’s no better medicine than laughter!
Kate and her team were awesome to work with! I have sensitive skin and I am allergic to a few ingredients commonly found in makeup products, so I have always been hesitant about getting my makeup professionally done. When I first spoke with Kate, I told her about these concerns, and she told me that we would review each product being used at my Hair & Makeup trial. I was so thrilled to work with someone that took the time to make sure I was comfortable with every product used. She even checked in with me after our trial to make sure I had no reactions. This made me feel so comfortable and confident for my wedding day! On the day of the wedding, Kate and her team were super efficient and performed all the services requested in a timely manner. Everyone was so sweet and professional. My whole bridal party, mother, and mother-in-law and I were so happy with our hair and makeup services! Everyone looked and felt beautiful the entire day! Thank you so much Kate! You were such a huge part of making our wedding day a success!
Kate is SO AMAZING! First of all, who wants two separate people coming to do your hair and makeup when you can have one person do BOTH just as amazing!!! My hair stylist and makeup artist for my wedding were both booked the day of my shower so finding someone else I could trust was a bit difficult. However when I spoke to Kate the first time, I knew she would be the best fit for the look I was going for! She's also an amazing human!!! Don't hesitate to book her! Also, not to mention, my makeup did not budge all night! Even the lashes!!!
I booked Kate the second I got engaged!!! Kate was amazing, honest, and patient! She communicated with me from the beginning and was always there to answer my questions no matter what! Kate is always punctual, polite and friendly. She will travel to you for your trial and to your wedding venue, no matter what time it is. Thank you for making me look amazing and beautiful on my special day! Cannot recommend her enough!! Xoxo
Kate and her awesome team did the makeup and hair for me and my bride squad on the wedding day. I cannot recommend her company enough! From the smooth and reliable communication throughout the wedding planning to the trial that helped us determine the key look for the big day, and the 6:45 am early morning arrival time on my wedding day, to the safe and respectful procedures during this crazy Covid time, Kate and her team were on point for my group of 10 with a 10:15 ready deadline! In addition to being talented and knowledgeable artists, Kate and her team are super friendly, encouraging, and helped us have fun as we prepped for the wedding. They also graciously accepted feedback and did some re-do's when a few small details felt off. Kate worked exclusively with me and her other team members managed to do hair and makeup for 10 in under 3 hours. Overall, I loved working with Kate and I loved the look of my hair and makeup, as well as the look for all my girls. I felt beautiful and glamorous but also very me. Thank you, Kate, for helping to make my wedding day amazing! You are an incredible artist and I highly recommend your services!

I booked Kate without meeting her during the height of COVID and will NEVER regret that decision. Her team was super efficient, professional, and accommodating. They had ten of us ready in time for the photographer with time for touch ups. Our makeup was flawless and did not move the entire night and everyone’s hair was exactly what the girls requested. I cannot recommend Kate and her team enough!!! Trust me, my wedding was last night and I needed to get on here ASAP to write this review.
Kate was amazing! Communication was seamless as well as my trial! Asked me plenty of questions to help her achieve the right look for me! Cannot recommend enough! Booked her for my 2021 wedding and bridal shower!
Kate is simply the best, you meet her and instantly feel like you’ve known her for years! She does both hair and makeup and will travel to you anywhere for both your trial and your wedding and is always so punctual. She even helped me with last minute (I’m talking hours notice) event makeup. She can do anything from full “Kim K glam” to a natural look. Thank you for making me feel like a bridal beauty Kate!! xoxo
