a little too much about me…


Welcome to Maq & Mane, Artisan Makeup and Hair.

I’m Rachel Biestman, lead artisan and industry veteran of 13 years. My aesthetic is soft and timeless, with a nod to everything boho and whimsical. I adore weddings, but also have commercial experience. My husband is Patrick Biestman of Acuity Photography, and we work together often to capture artistic senior photography, timeless family shoots, memorable wedding moments, and heirloom portraiture.

I am also a dedicated salon stylist and proudly a Davines Educator. I believe in the manifesto of “Sustainable Beauty,” and make every effort to choose environmentally conscious products, as well as use sustainable practices while working in the salon. I am always expanding my clientele, so feel free to book your next salon appointment here.

I am very excited to hear from you! Contact me today to talk about your hair and makeup needs!
