Meet Joy

It all started with a small vision to work from home 12 years ago

The Studio journey began inside my home dining room in 2008. I wanted to leave my day job as a Physical Therapist and cultivate my passion- makeup and photography.


I provided makeup and hair services for weddings the first 4 years of being in business winning "Richmond's Best Makeup Artist" and awarded the  Bridal "A" Lister title.  

To date, I have been featured in multiple national and international publications for hair and makeup and photography. 

Continuing to grow the hair and makeup business that began as big dream has allowed me to provide local jobs for over 20 women 12 years later as artists, wax specialists, and cosmetologists.

This company is such a huge passion for me, and truly represents my heart and soul. Each client’s experience with us matters to me so much, that every single thing in our space has been deliberately placed and handpicked to convey a feeling of uniqueness. From the decor, to customer service, I want each client to feel like a personal friend of mine walking through our doors. 

I feel privileged and honored to have a space that allows me to live my dream. I am blessed to work alongside such an incredibly talented group of individuals who allow me to lead them on a daily basis. Lastly, I am grateful and humbled by our clientele, who have made this whole dream possible. Our clients are what makes us who we are, and it is as simple as that.
