Couples nationwide depend on The Knot’s list to find wedding planners, bridal salons, DJs, florists, and other professionals who offer superior service and value. Blushing Brides has been named one of the top bridal stylists in Boston, Rhode Island, Cape Cod and New Hampshire.

“This year only the top 2% of vendors across the country earned this honor and Blushing Brides absolutely deserves it,” said Jill Rothman, beauty specialist with the Knot. “All their hard work paid off!”

Blushing Brides has been an integral part of the greater Boston wedding community since 2010. It was the winner of the WeddingWire 2013 Bride’s Choice award, the 2014 and 2015 Couples’ Choice Awards, and has been a finalist in the Boston A-List Best Wedding Hair Stylist and Best Wedding Makeup categories in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Founder Grace Mahoney is a native of Boston’s fashion scene. She earned her Cosmetology License at the Blaine Beauty School and degrees in Apparel Design and Fashion Merchandising from Framingham State University, but her passion for fashion goes back to childhood, when she was her circle’s go-to style expert.

“I was only a junior in high school when I had my first experience with bridal hair and makeup. Although I tried my best to seem calm and collected on the outside, it was a big step! But all those years of practice paid off — as my bride examined her glamorous wedding makeup and updo in the mirror, smiling widely, I beamed with pride. From that moment on, I knew I’d found my calling.”

Grace founded Blushing Brides to help brides look their best without the stress of driving around town to nail salons and beauty parlors. The company styles hair, nail and makeup for the entire bridal party onsite. Blushing Brides also provides free consultations and a range of specialty services like Man Grooming, tattoo coverage and makeup tutorials. Blushing Brides’ service doesn’t stop when the wedding starts, either; Armed with safety pins, fashion tape, makeup and other essentials, Blushing Brides’ artists can keep the bridal party looking flawless through the ceremony, photo sessions and reception.
