It's simple, I love what I do
My love for hair and makeup started as a young child, playing "hair dresser" with my papa, teaching myself to french braid on my barbie doll's head, and painting all over my mom's face (or anyone that would let me). Wanting to go to cosmetology school right out of high school, my father strongly encouraged me to get my degree first. I received my Master's in Marketing and then enrolled immediately into the RCC cosmetology school- I knew my heart was in hair and makeup... however, my husband just thinks I am really a collector of degrees. If I wasn't doing hair and makeup I think my dream job would have been maker of puns... it is my gift.
I love puns. I love making faces beautiful. I love that every woman has natural beauty. I love to laugh, really loud. I think my husband is stunning & our baby is the cutest. I believe I was born to do makeup. I LOVE Jesus. I believe styling hair is an art. I am addicted to coffee…a sickness really. I believe the Chargers will win a Super Bowl. I believe my dog is the cutest dog in the world – he thinks he’s human. I LOVED being a bride. I love the robot, my go-to dance. I love that every wedding is unique, and every bride is lovely. I love that I still cry at every wedding … and hope for this forever.
We Love Our Team
Love, love , LOVE our team- exceptionally talented artists, paired with personalities that are genuine, loyal, and most importantly hilarious! - I could not be more proud of this. All of our stylists are licensed cosmetologists, and the majority of our artists are certified in Airbrushing, specializing in both traditional as well as airbrush makeup applications. Because we value the importance of continual education, all of our stylists/artists consistently take classes to learn new techniques, educating ourselves on all the latest and upcoming trends, techniques, and products.
It is a complete privilege to be able to do what we love for a living, and to be a part of such a significant day of a person’s life. To play a role, even if it is a small role, in someone’s wedding is an incredibly honoring experience. Every client is different and every client is inspiring. We are not creating beauty, but revealing it, because every woman is beautiful. To be able to help a woman not only see, but appreciate, their own beauty is not only a blessing but also humbling.
We Love Our Clients
We love love. As cliché as that may sound, it is the honest truth. With a borderline obsession with all things “wedding”, we absolutely adore working with brides! And, how amazing is it that we get so much more than just clients, but clients that become friends- love that! We have had the privilege and honor of working for some incredible companies and networks allowing us opportunities outside of weddings as well. Having had the opportunity to work with some of the most distinguished and respected vendors in the industry, 10.11. is privileged to be regarded as one of the top professional companies in California for hairstyling and makeup.
