KAREN

I've  been fascinated with hair since I was a little girl. I remember spending the night with my Grandma as  child and thinking she had the longest hair I had ever seen!  She always wore it in a bun, so I would wake up at 5am just to play with it before she would have to put it up. I just loved brushing and braiding it while she drank coffee & talked about the day. Now I have 20 years of experience behind the chair working with clients, brides, and wedding parties. I am a life long student constantly learning & sharpening my skills to stay current on the latest trends. My passion is creating a stunning look for each girl on such an important day. I enjoy working closely with my clients whether it's creating a romantic wispy updo, or a classic chignon. The moment they sit in my chair, my mission is to give them their dream hair!

MARISA

Texas raised and San Francisco crazed, Marisa's passion is creating natural makeup looks with a focus on skin care.

She started her makeup career in Austin at a local salon but eventually ventured into the theatrical world of stage makeup with Austin Lyric Opera where she became a Principle Makeup Artist. In 2010 she decided to take on San Francisco where she began working as a Lead Aesthetician at Bloomingdales as well as a Dior Regional Artist. It was during that time in which she recognized her love for healthy skin and perfected the chemistry on how to achieve it for all her clients. Her signature look is glowy, luminous, and natural. She also loves creating specific looks for editorial shoots, red carpet, events, and even had the pleasure of working with Matthew McConaughey recently! (swoon!)

 

SARA

After conquering the makeup world in San Antonio, doing makeup for everyone from the San Antonio Spurs Silver Dancers to various Tejano music stars, Sara packed up her bags and moved to Los Angeles. It was while spending time mentoring under some of the industries biggest artists including, Sharon Gault and Scott Barns, Sara began making her own waves in the world of beauty.  During her 13 years in Los Angeles she spent time working and traveling with Prince, Nick Cannon ,Carmen Electra, Eric McCormack, Danny Trjeo, and Paris Hilton, just to name a few. She was also the department head to several independent films including American Son, an official selection of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Sara's style is fresh and beautiful; always seeing the true beauty in whomever is sitting in her chair, she makes it her constant goal to only enhance what is already there.

BRITTANY

Houston by birth, Brooklyn by heart, glamour is in Brittany's blood. She grew up sneaking her eyeliner on the bus, matching her lipstick with her outfits and stealing tricks from the countless beauty queens around her. (She did graduate from Ole Miss after all.) Brittany's professional training came through years of working in film and theatre and most recently by studying under Helen Andersson at Face Stockholm. Her past and recurring clients include Cartier, Sephora, CoverGirl, Burberry, Kendra Scott, Kimiko Glenn, Megan Hilty, Andrea Martin, and Laura Benanti. With her bubbly personality she immediately puts you at ease and makes everyone sitting in her chair feel like a life long friend!
