Joy dreamt of the "job" she has today since she was a young girl.  She attended Paul Mitchell The School St. Louis where she studied Cosmetology. She excelled in advanced coloring and cutting techniques,  taking courses in Advanced Makeup, and being one of the first to make it to Las Vegas as a core student. 


Upon graduation, she applied at MAC Cosmetics at the age of 18 and was accepted as a full time artist at Nordstrom Galleria. She quickly transitioned into one of St. Louis' most sought out Makeup Artist.

Her keen eye for color, placement, and skin texture advanced her into a Succession Program with MAC. She was able to help train artist alongside her Regional Trainer. Within two short years she accepted a promotion and became a Retail manager for MAC where she coached a team of six artist by the age of 20. She is ADV 2 certified. She later moved on to manage larger and bigger teams all over St. Louis, helping develop artist and servicing customers.


With over 9 years of experience under her belt, she has been fortunate enough to have worked with over 30,000 clients of different ages, races and sexes. She has worked with Street Scape Magazine, Miss Teen Missouri, Sweetie Pies TV show, Kansas City Chiefs, Clayton Jewelers, JOYA Jewelry, Signature Bridal, Amika, The Pink Bride, ESPN and many more.

 In November 2017, She received a promotion and was transferred to Dallas, Texas to help manage and open the first M.A.C PRO Store & Bumble and Bumble Hair Studio Concept store.

The first store of its kind doing both hair and makeup services in one place.


In late 2018, Joy returned back to St. Louis to pursue her dreams of working for herself focusing on building her own brand. She found great passion in Bridal Makeup. Most recently, she built a new in home full service studio doing both hair and makeup for all of greater St. Louis

"My job doesn't stop when I clock out; I live for this, it's what I do.  The way I look at it--I'll never know enough or have mastered my skills.  My clients are the oxygen behind my fire.  I always wanted to make a difference in others lives,  and I do that everyday."
