One thing I can say about my career path is that it has allowed me to be free and creative. I’ve worked with different types of people with all shapes, sizes, races, and sex’s in many different parts of the US. Usually I get that warm and fuzzy feeling at the end of the day and that lets me know I’m doing what God has me here to do. It is that passion that continues to drive me til this day.
My work has been featured in magazines such as “Black Hair Care” and “Essence Hot Hair” along with local hair magazines. I’ve worked for the well-known cosmetic line “M.A.C. Cosmetics” and have done hair and/or makeup for many projects which include (but are not limited to) a movie, fashion shows, fundraiser events, album covers and more. Joining the Xtreme Lashes Stylist team and becoming an Advanced Lash Stylist wasn’t in my initial plan but has become so much fun. It seemed to be a good fit for an all-around beauty package. You can’t go wrong with a triple combination of hair, makeup, and lashes!
