So it's the season for prom and end of the year banquets of all kinds! I remember my mother getting so excited for prom season because she LOVED creating fun and beautiful updos! And let me tell you, she was AMAZING at it! I am starting to find I have that same excitement the more and more updos I do. Along with the updos sometimes comes the makeup and that's where I REALLY get excited. I've had fun so far with my clients hair and makeup this season and can't wait for the weddings I have coming up in this coming year! Here are a few of my creations as of late!
So obviously this website/blog is a new endeavor for me because I'm not used to updating it. It will definitely take some getting used to to make this a regular thing so please bear with me. I am finally getting to update about the photo shoot reveal that I was involved with about a month ago. I had a blast working with Dee, the contest winner, and the ever talented Katie Nixon. Here is their appearance on The Broadcast TV below.
Not only did I get to do the hair and makeup I got to try my hand at some behind the scenes photos which was a little added fun bonus for me lol! Katie did a beautiful job at really capturing Dee's spirit and inner beauty. It was a pleasure to get to meet and talk with Dee and hear her story. Here's a look into the fun we had that day.
Don't forget to check out my portfolio for some of my favorite photos from the shoot! And keep checking back for more updates!
I'm super excited about a photo shoot I will be working on this coming Friday with my extremely talented friend Katie Nixon of Katie Nixon Photography! I will be doing hair and makeup for a very special woman who won a contest Katie announced on her appearance on The Broadcast: Entertainment Talk Show!
I was already willing to do this but then Katie made sure to share the story of the winner with me so I could get a sense of who I'd be working with. I'm sure glad that she did! Her entry made me cry and reaffirm why I do what I do! To make someone feel beautiful and confident by just doing their hair or their makeup seems so simple to me, but to others it's not. My mother was a hair dresser all my life and as long as I could remember I was getting my hair done and playing with makeup, all at the encouragement of my mother. I was sometimes her guinea pig and wasn't afraid to try new things because I grew up seeing my mother do the same. For example: My mother worked all the time...I mean ALL THE TIME and even sometimes late at night. It wasn't abnormal for me to already be in bed when she'd come home, so I wouldn't see her until she woke me up the next day. Well one particular morning I heard the sweet voice of my mother telling me to wake up...ever so gently and calm. As I began to open my eyes and focus them, I see her leaning over me with BLONDE hair! My mother was well known for her short and sassy firey red hair that went with her personality so it was a shock to wake up to her with blonde hair. She had decided on a whim it was time to try something fun and different...and of course it looked good on her. That was the example I had growing up and who I looked up to. Someone who was not afraid to try a new look or be a little out of the box. So when I read this woman's story it moved me and made me want to give her that confidence and that fire within her to feel amazing and attractive and like she could more or less conquer the world! And to have Katie be able to capture that for her so she can have that memory frozen in time forever, makes it even better!

The contest winner will also join Katie on The Broadcast on January 27th, where they will reveal the photos live on television, so be sure to tune in!
Okay guys...this is just the beginning! Keep checking back for more updates!
I am a fun loving, artistic, person who loves people. I love hair, makeup, fashion and anything having to do with cosmetology. Cosmetology runs in my blood and I hope to open my own salon someday in honor of my mother who was the best cosmetologist I knew! Cosmetology is my passion and I couldn't think of a better profession to be in than to make others feel good about themselves!
