Why is hair and makeup your career? For me, doing hair and makeup never gets boring! I'm always experimenting with looks and learning new techniques, which is perfect because I love being creative! I also love combining my ideas with those of other people, and my job allows me to do that with brides, photographers, clothing designers, actors, business owners, party/event go-ers. Just about anybody!
What is it about working with brides/weddings you enjoy? The best thing is seeing a brides reaction to their look, especially after the dress is put on! That is probably when the bride feels the most excited, and I am so glad I get to be a part of that. I also love that I get the opportunity to hear the life stories and future aspirations of so many individuals. You can lean a lot from someone in 3 hours or less!
What is your favorite style to do? I defiantly love styles that are interesting to look at. Many brides ask me to incorporate braids, twists, and waves into their hair, which is my specialty! For makeup, I love doing all sorts of looks, from soft/romantic, to glamorous. As long as it suits the person's style and personality, then I am happy!
What inspires you? I am inspired by all kinds of artists. Most recently, photographers and digital artists. They are all so technically skilled, but I am most impressed by the way their works make me feel and think. As an artist myself, I hope to make people feel better about themselves, and allow people to be more optimistic.

Lash Enhancements by Tracey
The two techniques available are classic and volume! The initial classic set takes about 2 hours, filling in the majority of the client's lashes. With a classic application, a single extension is applied to one natural lash, at a distance close to the base of the lashes, but never touching the skin (allowing lashes to grow and shed as usual). This technique increases density, length, and curl to lashes.
A volume lash set can take up to 2.5-3 hours depending on the number of natural lashes a client has. A unique lash pick-up technique allows anywhere from 2-6 ultra fine lashes to fan out and meet at a single point, creating a perfect base to attach to a single natural lash. The result is an extra dense and fluffy set of lashes with increased length and curl. These are not to be confused with cluster lash sets which are too thick to attach to a single lash, resulting in lashes that are stiff and unable to grow and shed properly. Both classic and volume techniques can be combined for unique and personalized lashes.
The lashes offered are synthetic mink, which are the highest quality vegan lashes on the market. We carry a variety of lash lengths, curls, and thicknesses to suit every client's needs. The medical grade glue used is low fume/odour and quick drying, allowing for maximum comfort during the procedure. The results are lightweight, comfortable lashes that fan out and separate naturally! The lashes remain perfectly curled and are waterproof. A fill at 2-3 weeks is about 1-1.5 hours, and will vary with each client's lifestyle and habits. At the point of each fill, clients should have more than 50% of lashes still remaining.
