annie in a minute
This chill, artsy moon child's journey into the beauty industry began in 2007. As a makeup artist, spending many years working with various brands and freelancing for special events, bridal and editorial. Annie loves that part of makeup is enhancing the skin and focuses on skin care with her clients. Creatively, she loves doing avant-garde work as it fuels her inspiration.
Annie has attended courses in NYC with Danessa Myricks, DeShawn Hatcher, Temptu, and several seminars through The Powder Group, as well as continued education at The Makeup Show NYC. She also has extensive knowledge of products and techniques through her years of experience with MAC and Sephora.
Annie felt the pull for something more to expand her creativity in the industry-leading her to hair. Annie joined Craft House Salon because of her enthusiasm for learning, and her goal is to absorb as much knowledge as possible. Building her personal style and artistry in hairstyling through our salon's advanced training program. Annie's empathetic, kind and laidback vibe radiates from her, making anyone in her presence feel welcome, accepted, and at ease.
When Annie isn't in the salon for freelancing, she spends her time with her husband and two kids watching movies, playing video games, listening to music, and doing creative things together. Annie maintains her imaginative energy through oil + watercolor painting, drawing, and building legos.
In addition to offering makeup services, Annie is enrolled in the Craft House Salon cutting curriculum and will look for haircutting models throughout her training.
