Hi! I'm Colleen, proud owner of Boston Ever After. As a mother of two toddlers and Kimbo the cat, this is my fourth baby! I got an early start in the beauty industry officially when I was 14 years old. Not quite ready to take on the task of doing hair and makeup for clients on their wedding day, I was hired for kids' birthday parties to braid hair and paint nails. I knew from the moment I started my freshman year in the Cosmetology program at Minuteman Regional HS, that I wanted to run my own event styling business.
In June 2006, I passed my state board exam and officially became licensed in the state of Massachusetts. There was no Instagram, Pinterest, or Snapchat; I had to build my company the old fashioned way - hard work and word of mouth. I learned a lot about business the hard way, for which I am grateful because it helped direct and shape my dream company.
In an ever-evolving industry, continuing my education and training is SO important to stay relevant and motivated. I've trained with L'Anza, Kevin Murphy, Aquage, Make Up For Ever, Temptu, Bobbi Brown, and many many many more.
