"Make your life a work of art, and your art a work of life..."
Hair Stylist / Make-up Artist
My strong fascination with makeup and hair started at an early age. I have vivid memories of watching while my mom would carefully apply mascara to her lashes and smooth on her frosty pink lipstick. I still remember the smell of her lipstick when she removed the cap…
Often times, as early as grade school, I would get a bit of “scolding” for brushing and braiding my friends hair during story hour. Finally, I approached the age my mom felt I was old enough to wear a bit of makeup myself. Just a touch of mascara, blush, & light colored lipsticks were allowed. However, I would sneak eyeliner, shadow and put it on at school. Often times I could be found in the bathroom making up my friends faces…
I was self-taught until I enrolled in cosmetology school right out of high school. I was offered a job as soon as I graduated from school at a new salon one of my instructors ‘David’ opened. David asked me on board because he expressed that he saw “great potential” in me. Within a year of working at the salon, I saved enough money to take my first professional makeup classes at John Robert Powers in Detroit. This was just the beginning of the techniques and knowledge I craved to know about makeup.
Through my career, many artists have inspired me. To date, I have had the honor of working hands on with many recognized hairstylist and makeup artists in the industry. I very much admire their work and dedication to this art.

I treat every person the same and there is no place for ego. Each person deserves 100% and that is what they will receive from me.
