"To me the essence of truly modern makeup is the freedom to be yourself, to express who you are."                

-Francois Nars



Me, Nicki Hala

I'm a mother and wife first and a hair/makeup artist second. I'm in love with my husband and my three children, but I'm obnoxiously obsessed with fashion, makeup, and accessorizing! I live for lipstick and false lashes and  I collect high heels in my spare time. I started doing hair and makeup on friends and family when I was in high school, but it never occurred to me to work a little of that magic on myself. Hence, the many awkward high school pictures. I thank my kids for pushing me into this profession because it wasn't until 2012 while I was on maternity leave with my first daughter that I decided to take a leap of faith and start doing freelance makeup and hair.
