1. Introduction: What's your story?
My name is Lisa, founder and artist at Beautique Hair And Makeup. My passion for the beauty industry started when I was 20 years old and I enrolled in David Presley Cosmetology school. After cosmetology school I started building hair color clientele at a booth rent salon and I loved it- I loved being my own boss and having the freedom. I am the person that is always looking to learn and grow especially when it comes to my career, so after 5 years at that salon, I decided to leave and venture into a different route and I added makeup services as a Master Hair and Makeup Artist at Ulta beauty as a commission employee. I worked my way up after a year and felt I wanted to continue to grow- I had a vision for a better way I could run my own business so I decided to take the leap and open my own salon suite at Sola Salon Suites and named my salon suite Beautique Salon where we offered lashes, hair, makeup, and wedding services. During that time I also wanted to venture into training other artists in Hair Extensions through Dream Catchers Hair. It was a not long after that I worked my way up from the smallest suite available to the largest at various locations of Sola in Michigan and eventually felt like it was time for me to move on from the suites and venture into my dream of owning a full salon where I could really pursue my dreams of wedding hair and makeup with a team of artists offering all the services. I officially opened my first salon I started from the ground up in Grand Blanc Michigan in 2020 called Beautique Hair And Makeup- 1 year after we opened I opened a 2nd location offering eyelash extensions and spa services. Eventually I conjoined the 2 salons and now we offer a variety of services all in 1 place.
Since then I have have branched out to CA and opened another location in San Luis Obispo where we continue to offer the same services focusing on the love of weddings. I am living the dream of loving what I do. Weddings to me are especially a true passion for me because I love that we are able to be such an important part about the brides day helping her feel her absolute best and most beautiful. Its truly a passion for everyone that we bring on our team.
