I am a Bronx native, hair and makeup artist, and also a beauty writer.
My favorite thing about this industry is the creative process. Even if a client is not dealing with anything really serious self esteem wise, just watching them go from one level to the next after the creative process, whether it’s a makeup look or a hairstyle, I’m just like really passionate and really in tune with that, one step to the next. It’s a really beautiful thing.
It makes me feel wonderful. I’m glad that I have this gift to do these things for women, black women especially. We don’t have a lot of things geared towards us. But being that I am a black woman I can cater to black women.
I love the creativity that comes with being a black woman. The different looks that we have—we have to celebrate it because that’s what makes us, us.
