My Career

Ky Washington

It all started when I was a little girl. My mom would take me to the beauty salon and I was fascinated by the amazing creations I saw there.

I noticed the “pep”in the step, the confidence, and the glamour women felt leaving the salon and I wanted to be part of that magic.

So off I went to study at the Aveda Institute (specializing in makeup for the mature client) and The Artistry Beauty Institute. I also decided to further my training and work with a master hairstylist.

I am so fortunate to have been trained and mentored by celebrity makeup artist Jeanine Lobell, who helped me develop my signature makeup style. (Jeanine is the founder of Stila Cosmetics and makeup artist to actresses Michelle Williams, Cate Blanchett, and Natalie Portman).

Once I discovered the healing power of plants, I decided to certify as a Holistic Aromatherapist so I could offer my clients high performing products and services that were good for them and the earth. This also helps me set a calming mood for all of my patrons.

I’ve literally dabbled in every genre of the makeup and hair world until I realized my passion, Big Moments. I could get someone ready for a huge TV interview or show them how to finally apply their eyeliner correctly. Either way, it’s a big moment. This is what I want to share with you.

My clients range from TV stations and On-Air talent, to world leaders, and Corporate Giants, a bride on her big day, and a woman taking my makeup class for the first time. All Big Moments and equally important to me. Over a decade into my career I hope to make all your Big Moments exactly as you envisioned. Thanks for stopping by.
