My Beauty Story



I planned to share this My Beauty Story video with you sooner but with all the holiday buzz I decided to wait. I made this because of the abundance of people asking how I got my start as a hair + makeup artist. It’s just a snippet of what that journey looked . . . it all grew from a desire to be creative and a passion of helping others.

  • Gah, you’re so inspirational. I wanna be you when I grow up, haha. Thank you for sharing this. 🙂

    And I’ve been trying to get my hair to like yours in this video. How’d you dooooo it?

  • love this, such a great story, beautifully shot. and seriously, your hair looks amazing!

  • hi sunnie!

    I really enjoyed hearing your story. i’m currently a photographer in training in sf, and it’s always inspiring to learn about how people found and pursued their creative passions. I follow your blog avidly (really appreciate the attention you’ve given short hair!), and am excited to see it grow and change. also, as a cal poly alum, I love that you’re from SLO. 🙂

    thank you for doing what you do!


  • I absolutely loved watching this. It’s so great to hear your story! I’m not surprised that you’ve earned all this success, you are really talented. Glad I found your blog–looking forward to seeing more from you!

    Loved watching your video.It really inspired me. Just seeing how much you’ve done and accomplished and of course Its always gonna be hard work working at it to get to where you want to be. I myself am In the industry but just starting out…. and yes it could be intimidating when you dont know where to start or where to look. In the future and even If i could do it now I would love to work on photoshoot set or for tv doing hair and makeup. Its my passion and along with hair and makeup I always had a love for fashion and later on realized you know….I could do hair and makeup and be around what I love. but anyways don’t want to make this a long story but just wanted to say that watching this video and just loving your blog and videos really just gives me that push I need and to push myself cause at times Im kinda shy and that holds me back In a way I guess but I know I could be the person I want to be but still a little afraid to come out In a way. Hair and Makeup Is my passion and what I want to do for the rest of my life I know that.. which makes me happy cause a lot of people out there don’t know… If you have any advice on starting out in the filed or what I should do or words of encouragement I would love it and appreciate it! Thanks for everything you do! Your blog and videos do exactly what you wanted to do and that is help people like myself. 🙂

  • I am so excited that I found your blog!! It is amazing!! I love that I can relate to your many hairstyles, I like to try and do something new every now and then. I don’t like looking the same everyday 🙂 I truly enjoyed watching your “beauty story”, it is very inspiring and it’s lovely getting to know you better! I hope to be able to put all my creative ideas to use, I love making and creating things. Especially things that can help make people more beautiful 🙂 I just need to stop making all these plans and just do it! Excited to be a new reader!!

    PS: You are stunning! Love you ombre hair too!
