Vanessa is a self taught Makeup Artist, a NYS licensed Cosmetologist and Aesthetician originally from Utica, NY now living in South Troy. During her last two years of high school Vanessa completed the cosmetology program at Herkimer BOCES, where she earned her Cosmetology License and where she soon discovered her love of bridal styling. Shortly after graduating high school she attended SUNY Broome Community College and earned her associates degree in Marketing, Management, and Sales. Although she enjoyed the business side of things, she always knew that her passion was truly in the beauty industry, especially makeup.
This is what eventually brought her to the decision to advance her beauty knowledge and career, so she attended, and graduated from, the Aesthetics Science Institute in Latham, NY. With over 2 years of freelance experience doing makeup & hairstyling for numerous weddings, proms, photo shoots , and other special events, Vanessa’s ultimate goal is to always make the person in her chair feel confident and beautiful.
