What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes. I currently work at a salon and they provide us with continuing education and workshops. I also attend America's Beauty Show and The Make-Up Show annually. I also stay up to date on new and innovative products.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
From a young age I've been interested in art, drawing, painting, etc. As well as beauty and cosmetics. I used to do my mothers makeup when I was 5 and even then I understood blending and using multiple eyeshadows. Of course, with time, those skills advanced. I was doing makeup professionally long before I decided to go to school and get certified for it. After my modeling carrer took off I was doing makeup for photoshoots with a lot of emphasis on pinup, retro, bourdoir, and burlesque when I started doing period accurate hair styling and after that I decided to go to Tricoci University for my cosmetology license. Everything all came together and the rest is history!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Since I am currently working at a salon as a hairstylist and make-up artists I do a lot of haircut and style maintenance, Hair and makeup applications for weddings, proms, parties, etc. and makeup lessons. When I freelance I also do a lot of weddings, proms, parties, as well as photo shoots and work for performing artists.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Advice I have for customers looking to hire a provider such as myself is to make sure your make-up artist/ hairstylist is certified and licensed by the state to ensure not only quality work but also a high standard of approved hygiene. Always look at credentials, education, and pictures to make sure you are hiring someone that can perform the services you are looking for. I always tell people to go ahead and google me to find mentions of me and my work on different sites as well as pictures on sites such as modelmayhem.com. Especially for private personal hire, its always good to know who you are working with.
