HOW IT ALL STARTED
Welcome to my page and thank you so much for visiting!
I grew up in a small town in California called Los Gatos ~ About 45 min. South from San Francisco. I lived there until I was 15 years old. I went across country to further my education at boarding school in Hardwick, MA. I went to UMass Boston for a year then transferred to JWU in Providence, RI. I then decided to finish my education in Cosmetology School.
I graduated Empire Beauty School in 2014 and have been a Freelance Hair and Makeup Artist ever since!
The best thing about my job is it doesn't feel like work, it is something I simply love to do! When a bride tears up or glows because of how beautiful she feels that is the most satisfying feeling in the world and what I strive for. Makeup is beautiful however my goal is to make you feel beautiful while still looking like yourself. My Hair and Makeup products are hyper-allergenic and some (not all) vegan. The makeup that I use is sweat proof, waterproof, cry proof and 18 hour wear. Can't get better than that!
I started as an assistant for my sister in law who has been hairdressing for 20 years. I loved the process of continuing to learn new things everyday but my heart wanted to branch off and start my career!
I am currently working as a traveling Hair and Makeup artist for Gvzel & Co as well as owning my own Wedding and Event business. I previously worked as a Hair and Makeup artist at Frank Antonio Hair and Makeup in Newport, RI on Bellevue Ave and can happily say I learned a lot of my skills from each one of them.
I also have experience in many Film/TV shows and engagement photography shoots.
As I still work for those other companies throughout the years, I am a Freelance Hair and Makeup Artist on The Knot ~ Taylor Jo Artistry ~
