Starting beauty school at the age of 16 allowed me the opportunity to turn my passion into a career at a young age. I attended Beau Monde College of Hair Design (09-11) & graduated only 6 months after receiving my High School Diploma.
I began working only as a freelance artist for the first 2 years of my career, until I settled down in a salon & started providing basic hair salon services as well as makeup & facial waxing. In April 2015 I moved into my private studio & opened Merkley Artistry Hair & Makeup Studio. Outside of the studio I do freelance work all over the West Coast. I have had the opportunity to travel for my work & that is my favorite part!
I primarily focus on weddings during the summer, but through out the year I am also busy with other various types of work including photoshoots, runway shows, editorial work, event styling & much more!
Although my passion is the beauty industry, I also enjoy spending very much of my time cooking, hanging out with my husband MacCoy, laughing, spending time with my family, & so much more.
Thank you so much for considering me for your hair & makeup services. I look forward to your special day!
