Since a young girl, Joy dreamt of the "job" she has today. She started her career going to Paul Mitchell The School St. Louis. There she studied Cosmetology, excelling in advanced coloring and cutting techniques taking courses in Airbrush 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 fresh age of 18, and was accepted on as a full time artist at Nordstrom Galleria. She quickly transitioned into one of St. Louis' most sought after Makeup Artist.
Her keen eye for color, placement and skin texture advanced her into a succession program with MAC, where she was able to help train artist along side her Regional Trainer. Within two short years, accepted a promotion and became a Retail manager for MAC where she coached a team of six artist, all before the age of 20. She is ADV 2 certified and was apart of impact team. Later, moved on to manage larger and larger teams all over St. Louis, helping develop artist and servicing customers allowing them to feel their best.
With over seven 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, 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 and Bumble and Bumble Hair Studio Concept store.
The first store of its kind, doing both hair and makeup services in one place. Aiding the marriage of both retail and service.
Most recently, Joy returned back to St. Louis, Missouri, to pursue her dreams of working for herself-now focusing on building her own brand, 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 almost everyday"
