Before we really dive in here, I thought it would be a great time to share a little bit about myself and my heart on why I love what I do. I have always been a Tennessee girl. I grew up in Memphis (….. yes, I love J.T.) and my love for all things beauty began from taking Cosmetologist in high school. They should offer this technical program at every school, honestly! It saved me. I was a terrible student (sorry Mom and Dad) so realizing my artistic side was filled and channeled by doing hair and makeup started a passion within me. There is something so fulfilling about seeing a transformation right before your eyes! It truly never gets old.
I became a licensed Cosmetologist in 2005 and shortly after I made the big move to Nashville at 20. I can’t believe I have been here this long! I built a wonderful clientele through the years and have made precious friendships. There really is a special bond that comes with playing this role in someone’s life. To be there for them, listen, and help them be their best selves is so wonderful. I’ve done a lot of Nashville weddings through the years which is such a privilege and helping the bride or bridal party feel their absolute best is a joy. On the other hand I absolutely love the art of hair coloring. The freedom you have to transform is limitless. The fact that you can continue to grow with further education is so fun! With social media now, there are such broad learning tools and inspiration with so many talented artists out there.
I got married to my awesome hunk of a husband, Michael, in 2013 and after years of trying and hardships we were blessed with our twins in December of 2016 the week of Christmas. THEY ARE THE BEST. I mean having boy girl twins is Amazing. I cannot imagine our lives without them. Needless to say, I took a break from working since that first year was quite busy and I am thrilled to be back and starting a new chapter!
For many years I followed Cara Brooke’s blog and watched her Youtube channel. She was so personable and had fabulous hair and makeup tutorials. When she opened up her innovative beauty line to other artist I was PUMPED. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the products and the company itself. As a twin mom, the simplicity of the makeup is a lifesaver and the quality is fantastic in comparison to everything I have used through the years. I’m so thankful I started this new chapter and I am so happy to share it with you on this blog as well.
Grab a cup of coffee gorgeous and let’s talk Beauty!
