How we got started...

Kathy being a full-time freelance makeup artist and Janais being  a full-time freelance hair stylist, we kept meeting on different jobs and after some lunch over pizza one day, found out that we were both raised in Queens, NY. Not too far from each other either, which is crazy. Kinda meant to be lol. As some time went on, we ended up becoming very close friends. Soon after had an “A-HA!" moment, realizing that we both have the same passion to run a beauty service business. After some brainstorming sessions, here we are!

A little bit about Kathy:

Introvert extraordinaire with a dash of EXTRA!

Obsessed with Makeup, skincare & my Italian Greyhound mix dog Llewie.

Living in Astoria, NY. Born & raised Queens girl!

Hustling & bustling through the concrete jungle. 

No bad vibes! I keep my makeup kit saged & cleansed from any negative energy.

As much as I love being a couch potato, I also love outdoor activities like hiking & camping.

Guilty Pleasures:

JANAIS LOPEZ

Co-Founder

A little bit about Janais:

Opposite of Kathy- You’ll notice me from a mile away with my extrovert personality.

Always buying and trying new hair care. I swear by hair oils/ hair masks.

When I'm not working, you can find me relaxing at the beach.

Miami, FL is my new home, but NY will always have my heart.

You can take the girl out of NY, but you can't take the NY accent out of the girl!

Guilty Pleasures:

  • Sneaker addict

  • Could watch Friends re-runs for the rest of my life

  • Endless amounts of sour candies please

  • Coffee always!

  • Tanning at the beach

Actually, HOLD UP. Let's get a little more personal !
