After recently celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary, my husband and I finally decided to have some professional pictures taken (with our dogs, of course!), so prior to our photo shoot, I hired Lorena for my hair/makeup. I've never had my makeup/hair professionally applied/styled before (not even for my wedding), so was understandably a bit nervous. Upon meeting her, Lorena immediately put me at ease and took the time to talk with me and really understand my concerns and the "look" I wanted to achieve. I have fair skin, so was worried about a "fake" or "heavily made-up" look, but could not have been happier with the results...my hair and makeup have never looked prettier!! I don't enjoy having my picture taken, but with Lorena's expert help, I was more confident and comfortable in front of the camera, and for the first time in my life, was actually pleased with a photograph of myself. I'm using Lorena again for an upcoming holiday event, and can't wait to see her and her amazing results! Go and see Lorena... she's so friendly and professional and the atmosphere she creates is just fun and relaxing... you will NOT be disappointed!Dec 8, 2015Verified

Lorena is incredible at what she does, tailoring makeup/hair to exactly what you need and what your event or shoot calls for. She is dependable, punctual, works well with everything and anyone you throw at her, has an incredible encouraging attitude, and will make you feel and look UH-mazing. She truly has a one of a kind gift and I would reccomend her without hesitation to anyone. You absolutely cannot go wrong with any of her creative services--she is at the top of her game.Oct 23, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Nashville: Full Day and Half day and Hourly Rates Available *Rates are flexible based on project details & I'm happy to try to meet all budgetary needs.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I take the time to have consultations with my clients and really talk to them about their needs and obstacles. I get a solid sense of their business & lifestyle before making decisions on their look or "branding" if they are an entertainer. It's so important to have a strong , AUTHENTIC , comfortable style for yourself that translates well to those around you. I have a different experience with every client but I make sure to feel that we are loving fwd with great ideas and are on the same page.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I started working in salons at a very young age and ended up working at salons that catered to a celebrity clientele in Los Angeles (where I am from) It was at these salons (Jonathan A Beauty Shop by Jonathan Antin & Sebastian International ) that I gained training from some of the top stylists in the business. I learned the art of cutting hair & how to do makeup from some of the most influential and establishes artists and in an environment that was very ahead of its time . After some years working on movie sets and commercials I started working on music videos and was hooked. The music industry seemed to reel me in and I stick with it. wlrling as a personal makeup & hair artist catering to famous musicians led me to fall in love with image consulting for blossoming talent. That love led me to widen my services by adding wardrobe styling to my services. As a long time artist represented by the The Margaret Maldonado Agency I worked side by side with the most highly sought after wardrobe styling artists in the business who taught me their amazing talents. As a "self-taught" artist with over 20 years working successfully as a freelance artist , I try and learn from everything and everyone around me and always stay teachable no matter what.
