Born in Mexico moved to texas in 2016. Loves the beauty industry since she was a little girl. Became independent in 2015 with ups and downs from life but took them as lessons to become a stronger version of herself. I love being a part of the beauty industry for various reasons one being my passion for art, hair and makeup is a great way for me to express my artistic skills.

Meet KATIE

Makeup/Beauty has always been important to me. Even before I did it professionally, it’s been a source of creativity and positivity. To be able to see someone feel incredible and see their own beauty knowing I helped make that happen is what I live for. The confidence it can give someone is priceless – and for just a small moment I get to be part of their journey and their joy. Nothing better than that.

Meet Madeline

STYLIST + MAKEUP ARTIST

Hi! My name is Madeline Martinez.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved and been passionate about all things hair, make up, and people. Naturally, the beauty industry is where I feel called to be! After graduating from Chi Institute, I worked under a master stylist for over a year. I specialize in balayage, blunt bobs, and special event makeup. Clients who sit in my chair can expect to be heard and educated or relaxed and pampered. It’s up to you while I do what I love to do: bring out your natural beauty. When I’m not behind the chair, you can find me trying new foods and learning about other cultures, taking a walk outside on a beautiful day, or volunteering in our community.
