Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I believe there are a many things that make my work stand out from others in my field, but I think the main thing that makes my work stand out, is the decades of experience and extensive training I have in the art of hairstyling and make-up artistry. I trained under the legendary Francis NARS, when I was the West Coast artist for NARS cosmetics at Barney's New York in Beverly HIlls. I also trained under some of the most talented hair stylists at the best salons in Beverly Hills. Very few professionals in my field have had top notch training in both hair and make-up. I have also had the privilege of working with a very diverse clientele. Whether the client is younger or more mature, whether she is Asian, Hispanic, dark skinned or blonde hair blue eyed, I have experience with every kind of ethnicity, face shape, eye shape, skin tone, skin texture and hair texture. This wide range of experience gives me an edge over other artists who are just starting out in this business or have only been working the field for a few years. I think the second most important skill I learned how to develop is my ability to listen to my clients and give my clients the look they want instead of a look forced on the client. I am always willing to give a client my professional opinion, but I don't like to force my opinion on a client. The one thing I like most about my job, is how my work makes my clients feel. When someone looks good, they naturally feel good. That is the best feeling for me, making my clients happy.

From the beginning to the end, Joseph was amazing! I appreciated how much respect and passion he has for his craft and it shows through with the results. Joseph did a phenomenal job with my hair and makeup, and was even kind enough to help out a friend who had a hair 911 emergency. Not only is he talented, but he is a sincere and an honest person. Joseph understood the look I was going and he delivered above and beyond. He will definitely be my go to for hair and makeup for any event. I highly, highly recommend him!

Joseph came out to do my hair and makeup for my elopement and truly made me feel like a goddess on my big day. He was punctual and so much fun to talk to, time flew by as he dolled me up. He tailored my look to the ideas I had up on my Pinterest board, too. To top it all off, my makeup withstood EVERYTHING- all of the crying I did that day, carefully dabbing tears away, hugging people.. I even had to wear a mask into the building for the marriage license and I was terrified it'd rub off the makeup on my nose, but it stayed put and all throughout the rest of the night, until we got back to the hotel around 11 PM. My hair never budged either and withstood the winds during our photoshoot, as well as putting my veil on/taking it back off. Joseph knows what he's doing and if you book him, I promise you're in good hands. Thanks again for making me look and feel stunning!

My cousin and I wanted to looked fabulous for a very special wedding. We found Joseph. Joseph was responsive, professional and great to work with. I had hair and makeup and my cousin had makeup. We talked about what we wanted with Joseph and he added a little spice of his own to pump up the volume on our looks. We were not overdone we looked chic bringing our best features and qualities. Definitely would love to work with him again. Thank you Joseph.

Joseph was an absolutely wonderful glam artist to work with. Every note and request I made he listened to me and tweaked anything I asked for. I had so many compliments on my wedding for my beautiful hair and makeup. He is a wonderful person, fantastic to get along with and exudes professionalism. Joseph with Acree Beauty is a contact I will have forever I will go back to him for every event and I would recommend him to anyone who asks. Thank you Joe and thank you making me feel beautiful!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get to know what a client is expecting from a professional. I want to make sure I can meet those expectations or exceed them. So a lot of questions will be asked on both sides of the equation, exchange of pictures of what the client is looking for, timelines and dates, that sort of stuff.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My education/training began in the form of an apprenticeship of 2 years assisting one of Los Angeles's top makeup artists. We worked on everything from print work for magazines, music videos, film, TV, and bridal. I went on to complete my education by getting my California Cosmetology license. I then trained under the master of makeup Francois Nars when I was the west coast artist for NARS cosmetics @ Barney's New York in Beverly Hills. I then became an educator myself, and have been teaching professional makeup artistry since 2009.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have always been creative but never thought of seeking a career in makeup. I had a friend who knew a top makeup artist in LA, and that artist was looking for an assistant. I was straight out of high school and thought why not, I was introduced to him and we hit it off. I worked for him for 2 years, and that experience opened me up to the whole world of makeup and hair, and the rest as they say is history.
