My name is Paola,I am a licensed cosmetologist. Something that I love about my work is the happiness that my work can bring to a client, as well as how happy it makes me, to be part of a day so important.A little about my background is I’m from peru and i've been here almost 19 years now and i found the love of my life and we are nearly 18 years together .I have 3 teenagers at home that i love dearly. I am currently employed at an elementary school and since I'm bilingual. I have the opportunity to work with kids, especially those who just relocated to the U.S. Education wise I went to the institute of cosmetology in 2011 I also attended a makeup school called Brittany Beauty in May of 2018. I'm heavily inspired by others and I constantly strive to learn more and constantly grow my portfolio and client reach.
The Wedding Industry
Cosmetology really interested me in the year 2010 so much that I attended a course at a long island beauty school. I had the most amazing teachers that really pushed me and inspired the perseverance to work hard and show what I'm capable of. In 2018 I went to school for makeup and wanted to learn and gain more experience in that field since many of my clients questioned if I did makeup, and of course my drive to learn really fueled that motivation to attend. Weddings grasped my attention the most due the nature of working one on one and connecting with clients and impacting such a beautiful and treasured day
2011, I worked at Salon X for 5 years, but after some time I decided to take a different path and work for myself, especially since I would have more control of my hours and what I could do with my clients and of course give me more time with my little ones. Then in the span of a couple years I began to work with 2 separate companies. In that amount of time I learned so much and really grew my profile, portfolio and experience.
How do I set up an appointment or consultation?
Email me! firstname.lastname@example.org
(no texts or phone calls! due to the fact it may get lost in my phone)
How to secure/confirm my wedding day service?
Sign my contract and deposit with me.
Do you do various weddings a day?
No I do not, I like to do one per day so i can devoted my time and work to my full potential and satisfy my client
Does my hair need to be washed beforehand?
Yes, It needs to be cleaned the night before or the same day. It's much easier to work with clean and fresh hair, to achieve the best results.
One of my favorite things to do is dance. I even go to zumba classes that I really enjoy doing. It really relaxes me and helps me keep my mind off stress. Another hobby of mine is cooking for my family and myself. A little fun fact about me is that I secretly love singing, but I'm not exactly the type to sing in public.However going to the gym and doing zumba are my favorite pastimes during the week and something I really look forward to.
Paola did my hair and makeup along with my daughters and my daughter in laws for my sons wedding. She was so professional, kind, and made everyone look beautiful. Our makeup looked stunning in person and photographed wonderfully. We all got compliments all night. My daughter has very straight hair that never holds a curl but the way Paola did her hair, the curls stayed all night and into the next day. I cannot recommend Paola enough.
My wedding was on New Year’s Eve and Paola did both my hair and make up to match my glam theme with sparkles and big curls, I absolutely loved the way my hair and make up were done! Highly recommend her services.
Paola did my hair and makeup for my wedding along with my bridesmaid. I could not have been happier! She really listened and understood what I was looking for and was able to create it exactly! I felt so beautiful that day because of her masterful work which included putting 2 sets of extensions in my hair! She was also great company that morning helping me to remain peaceful and calm! I will definitely recommend her and will use her myself again in the future! Thank you Paola!
Paola did my hair and makeup for both my wedding shower and my wedding reception, a wedding I went as a guest to, and she will be doing my hair and makeup again for my baby shower this month! She is SO TALENTED with hair design, I’ve never seen anything like it!! She is easy to communicate with and very fairly priced, the appointments with her are always a pleasure. She’s very genuine and kind. I will always recommend Paola to my friends and family!
Paola did hair and make up for me and my mom on my wedding day. She is very sweet, she is professional, and very patient. Our hair and makeup stayed throughout the day! Definitely recommend to anyone looking for these services.
Paola did my hair, the mothers', and my bridesmaids' hair for my wedding. She was on time, organized and knew the order to keep the girls moving along. She knew how to do my hair from a trial but she had only seen a picture for my bridesmaids and she was spot on! Paola was able to make my dream a reality and it truly left me speechless. We partied all night and 14+ hours later, our hair looked as if she had just finished it! I would definitely recommend Paola to my friends, family and anyone else!
Paola did my hair and mom's hair for her wedding and it came out so beautiful! Our hair lasted the whole day and night. Paola was on time, professional, and so sweet. She’s also done makeup for a friend and it came out beautiful. She’s the best! I recommend her to anyone in need of hair and makeup!
