Nikki has been in the hair and makeup industry for over 10 years. She started her first company, Sincerely Something Borrowed, in 2019 which offers on-site hair and makeup services for weddings in NY, NJ, CT, and other destination events. As her first company experienced growth, it was neccessary for her to expand her first company due to the high volume of non-wedding related enquiries. Her first company has since expanded and now has a Hamptons Beauty Bar subsidiary, which offers at-home hair, makeup, nails, esthetician + other personal care services for the Hamptons, Manhattan, and Greenwich CT for all formal, social, and networking events, corporate/commercial, editorial work, TV/Film and other general social and influencer events, especially those in the Hamptons.

After graduating with a NYS Cosmetology License in 2013, Nikki worked with Warren-Tricomi Salon, studied with Wella Hair, Goldwell, Sebastian Professionals, Oribé, Peter Coppola, R+Co, American Crew, Temptu, Nars, Armani Beauty, Sephora, Gina Bianca Hair, and many other industry leaders. The first 5 years of Nikki’s career were intensely dedicated to perfecting her specialty of event hairstyling, and later on in her career studied makeup. Shortly thereafter, she relocated to her current salon in the heart of the Hamptons Hamlet of East Quogue.

In recent years, Nikki has worked with celebrities and socialites such as Mariska Hargitay, Joy Mangano, Bethany Frankel, Veronica Beard, Aida Turturro, Hazel the Beauty RN, Sydney Sadick, Maria Fischel, Cheri Kaufman, Dr. Christina Rahm + more. She has also worked with clients being photographed for Forbes, New York Magazine, The New York Times, Social Life Magazine, Metropolitan Magazine + Hamptons Magazine. She has also worked with clients for HSN, NBC, Bravo + HBO Max, as well as Selling the Hamptons, Good Morning America Segments + Serving the Hamptons.

The Wedding Industry

There is nothing like seeing a transformation. It's kind of like painting, you start with a empty canvas and turn a blank space into art. I also value the personal relationships we develop with brides. It's so special to be trusted by a bride, or really by anyone, not just with hair and makeup services, but with personal favors like creating a hair piece on the spot to replace a lost hair piece, missing veils, forgotten MOH speeches, retrieving shoes that were left in the hotel room, or a therapy session where someone plays with your hair, because who doesn't love that! I'm happy that people are able to rely on us for our professionalism, quality work, and integrity. We all love what we do, and are willing to go the extra mile. I also find being a mentor to those that work with me very rewarding, all of the artists that work with me are fully licensed freelance artists. It's amazing to see their career growth and progress over time, and I value the relationships I've cultivated with my team. Together, we have created a safe, professional environment, where we are all free to pursue our career goals and learn from each other without the need to compete.

How do I reserve my wedding date?
To reserve a wedding date, Sincerely Something Borrowed has a contract and deposit process. We place your date on a temporary hold after you have received the paperwork. During this time, we hold your wedding date to allow you to complete the paperwork and provide a deposit to us. Once we receive both items, your wedding date is reserved!

When should I book my hair and makeup trial?

We normally recommend booking hair and makeup trials 6-12 months before your event, especially if you plan to use it for an event like your bridal shower bachelorette, etc. to ensure we have availability.

Can I book my hair and makeup trial together?
Of course! In fact, we recommend this option so you can see your complete look.

Are hair and makeup trials scheduled on-site or at the salon?
We have both on-site and in-salon options for scheduling hair and makeup trials. On-site hair and makeup trials may have a travel fee, depending on the location.

Do we require a minimum number of people per bridal party? We do not require a minimum number of individuals to reserved a time slot for your wedding day. We do however have a different service rate if we are providing services for a bride with less than 3 bridal party members.

Are airbrush + Lashes included with my Makeup Application? Yes, lashes + airbrush are included and optional with all makeup services listed on our service menu.

Personal Hobbies

In addition to pursing my professional aspirations as a hairstylist and business owner, I am also a student at Stony Brook University. Here, I am completing a Bachelor of Science degree in biology, with my disciple being evolution and ecology. I am a lover of all things pertaining to cats and coffee! In my free time, I like to travel, and am a PADI certified scuba diver. I also have a strong affinity for hand written letters, polaroid photos, and will save every birthday card ever given to me, because I'm a sucker for anything of sentimental nature.

Nikki is phenomenal and calm. Her presence was so comforting the morning of my wedding and I loved my hair and makeup. I didn’t do a trial and she didn’t force me into one or say anything about not doing one. The first bun she put my hair in I didn’t love and she could tell and she changed it and said how that it was okay to not love it and she can fix it. I absolutely loved the way I looked on my wedding day! I actually lost my engagement ring the morning of my wedding and she stopped my hair and makeup until we found my ring. She helped flip the room upside down to look for it. Being good at your job is one thing, but being a good person isn’t always a given. She’s great!

I showed her a picture of what I wanted for my wedding day and she replicated it but made it so much nicer than the photo! She did a fantastic job and totally understood my vision. I usually hate getting my hair done but Nikki made it so much fun!


Sincerely Something Borrowed did a beautiful job. I was amazed by how talented and professional the service was! She was very detailed and made sure that I got the style I wanted! Would definitely recommend.

Had my hair trial yesterday with Nikki Brenton from Sincerely Something Borrowed. I have so much hair but she absolutely nailed the look I was going for!

I messaged Nikki of Sincerely Something Borrowed from Instagram and she was honestly just a breath of fresh air. She has been so amazing with her responses & being flexible in her scheduling & honestly she was just so chill to be around. She didn’t rush me at all & tried a few different styles. I wanted a boho style & I feel like she killed them! I highlyyyy recommend her for your wedding day hair ! Also her prices are super reasonable which I feel like is hard to find on Long Island.

SSB was the ultimate dream vendor!! Nikki was an absolute PLEASURE to chat with throughout the whole wedding planning process! She was SO organized and super informative, answering all my questions quickly and throughly! I searched around for make-up artists for our wedding, and spoke to a few, but after speaking to Nikki, it was a done deal! My wife and I had double the amount of faces (total of 13 people needing make-up) and Nikki was quick to give us the total cost, an outline of what everyone needed, if anyone had allergies, the style of make-up we were looking for, scheduling our make-up trial, sending updated itineraries when our wedding day timeline changed, what we could expect the morning of… just everything!! Im a very organized person, so having someone like Nikki honestly felt like I was just chatting with a close friend! Our lead make-up artist Hana, WAS A DREAM!! I'm vegan and have sensitive skin, and she was so knowledgable about what products were vegan, which ones wouldn’t irritate my skin, and she made me feel comfortable and freaking beautiful! She was an amazing addition to Nikki. And our other make-up artists on our wedding day were a joy! Seriously just felt like I was hanging out with a bunch of girlfriends, they blended into our group effortlessly! And everyone looked incredible!!! They truly just made all our favorite people look like the best version of themselves! Long Island Brides- Book Sincerely Something Borrowed!! They were my #1 favorite vendor, and they will be yours too!!
