I started Cassidy Watt Artistry Collective in 2017 and have been a full time hair and makeup artist ever since! I have always loved both the beauty and wedding industries and found my passion for hair and makeup artistry at a young age! Since 2017 I have grown CWAC to be a luxury hair and makeup collective composed of eighteen professional hair and makeup artists hand-picked by me! We work throughout the Okanagan area on some of the most beautiful weddings and events offering luxurious, bespoke hair and makeup services for the modern woman. I am a lover of soft glam, boho hair and makeup looks that compliment my client's natural features. I love perfecting my client's skin and leaving them feeling like the best versions of themselves after their time in my chair. When I'm not glamming brides you can find me reading a good book and relaxing at the lake! Follow along with me on IG @cassidywattmakeup!
Each artist or stylist on the CWAC has been hand-selected by Cassidy and has completed a rigorous onboarding training process with our artist/stylist educators. We only work with the most talented, professional & passionate artists to ensure our clients receive the very best hair and makeup services possible! Our large team allows us to pair our clients with the perfect artist to create the hair and makeup of their dreams. Take a moment to meet our artists below!
