Artist Spotlight: Meet our Makeup and Hair Artist, Emily!

“Whipstick,” as my mom likes to tell it, was one of the first words I ever uttered; little did she know it would remain a passion of mine until this very day. Red, pink, coral, nude, no matter the shade I love to play, experiment, or mix to achieve that perfect color to accompany and compliment each individuals personality and signature look. The beauty of hair and makeup can transform you into another character, time, or realm; or it can simply be used to enhance your natural beauty and mood. They work hand in hand, providing endless possibilities.

Photo by Jade + Matthew Take PicturesMy career in hair and makeup began at an early age when I would “borrow” my grandmother’s makeup, curlers, and hairspray. Curling and making up my Grandpa, yes Grandpa, was one of my very first memories. My craft continued to develop in school when I would make over and style my friends for our pretend photo shoots. In college I would have a list of sorority sisters lined up for hair and makeup before socials and semi-formals. As a student at the University of Georgia my career in beauty took the first steps toward being a profession. My sophomore year’s spending habits would result in a job in a salon where I would work to keep up my fashion habits until I graduated. After graduation I stayed on to do an apprenticeship under one of the most talented hairstylist I have ever known. She taught me the ends and outs of styling and I received a master of cosmetology under her direction. Joining and training with the Dollface team is another way for me to learn from the best and fine tune my craft while focusing on a true passion of mine… makeup!
