Never judge a book by its cover! The outside of the Hilliard Mills in Manchester, CT preserves the historic beauty. Each brick was stacked to create the long-standing structure. We love the vintage charm that takes us back to a unique time in Manchester’s history. Inside the mill is a totally different scene. Our very own studio is nestled in the grand space. At our studio we offer many services! What can you expect with a booking at KiSSandMaKeUp?

This is where all our bridal trials take place.

All the magic happens in our super comfortable beauty chairs at the vanity. Our team comes together to give you the most personalized experience. Your trial starts with hair and skin prep. You bring the inspiration and your hair and makeup artist duo will make it happen! During this time they can also recommend products for your skin and hair type. To learn more about booking a bridal trial, read our past blog:

There is a lot more going on at the studio than just hair and makeup! We love our studio space. It allows our artists the privacy and room needed to give you the best possible trial. The spa room is a great retreat area where you are transported to a place of calm and pampering. When you are getting ready to leave, you can pick up some lipstick or lip glosses from Earth, or purchase a painting to gift or decorate your home with! It’s an all in one stop for all things beauty!
