WeddingWire Featured Artist
Ana began her professional makeup artistry career as a retail artist for MAC Cosmetics in 2010 where she received training in makeup application and product knowledge.
In 2011, she established her freelance business while raising three young boys with her husband. Ana realized that many of her makeup clients were asking and wanting hair services as well; so, in 2013 she began learning how to upstyle for brides and special events eventually adding these services to the business.
Through word of mouth, her reputation for excellence in artistry grew and so did her clientele. Her passion to mentor others became a reality as she trained and added more stylists to her team. Ana's goal continues to be the same today as it was the day she started...to provide quality service and amazing customer care, to help our clients feel beautiful and confident on their most important days and all the days in between!
