About Samantha:

Samantha Nicole was born and raised on Long Island.  Although seemingly destined for the beauty industry, she studied Finance and Accounting at Hofstra University first.  After the birth of her second child, Samantha and partners opened a small Hair Salon on Long Island where she began to grow an understanding for the Hair and Makeup Industry. After a short period of time in the management end of the business, Samantha decided she was more interested in the creative aspect.  While she began her makeup career as a self taught artist, she simultaneously attended a local beauty school. Upon finishing beauty school, she obtained a position as a makeup artist at a prestigious salon in New York City.  It was at this time that she was afforded the opportunities to work on several exciting projects such as Fashion Week, HBO Film Festivals, Tony Awards, and People Magazine Hot 100 Gala.  Samantha found herself working on celebrities and TV personalities almost immediately. While reinforcing her reputation as a makeup artist, she also began to apprentice in the color department. She assisted world class colorists while studying Hair Color at the Loreal Academy in Soho.  Samantha still works with Loreal Brand Color today. 

Although the city life was exciting and stimulating, Samantha decided to change up her business model.  She wanted to offer her clients a more personal experience while being more available for her two daughters.  Although she sometimes misses the city, she is happy to create in her studio, where she is more available to her family.
