My name is Samantha and I am born and raised on LI. I’m currently residing in Long Beach but will be moving to Islip. Originally I attended to Hofstra University with the intention of studying Finance and Accounting, but very happily ended up in the beauty industry instead. I am a 10 plus year veteran, with my first experience as a salon owner. I have worked in LI and NYC as well as traveled all over the tri state area and Caribbean for Weddings. Hair and Makeup has been my passion since I was a teenager and I am grateful to be able to wake up everyday and do what I love. I have a diverse client base and offer a full menu of services besides bridal as well!
The Wedding Industry
About 8 years ago, a colleague of mine needed help on a wedding and although I was seemingly inexperienced- I jumped in with her that day. From that day forward, I decided that Bridal was going to be my focus. Being part of someone’s special day is so rewarding! I love making my clients look and feel their best on the most important day of their lives.
The Wedding Memories
I love when my clients include their pets and kids on the day of... being a mom and a dog owner, it’s something I would definitely do!
I specialize in Flawless Natural Glam Makeup, my clients always look and feel like themselves.
Samantha Nicole Beauty is named after myself... I had always tried to come up with something catchy but at the end of the day I realized I am literally branding myself so why not use my own name. I started out in this industry as a salon owner on the management and investment side. After a year of running a salon on LI, I decided I’d prefer to be more on the creative end. I went to Beauty School and went for NYC. I had this dream that working in Manhattan would be this Glamorous experience and at times it was, but it was also difficult to manage my home and kids at the same time. After a few years of the city, I left and decided to freelance. Working in Manhattan afforded me the opportunities to work with world class stylists and colorists, work on New York Fashion Week, enjoy Celebrity Clients of my own.... but at the end of the day, I needed to be more available to my two daughters. Freelancing has been the best option for my family. As a freelancer I have the ability to cherry-pick my colleagues to work on weddings with. My team is comprised of incredible stylists and makeup artists who are also 10 plus years veterans in this industry on Long Island.
