I first began styling hair in the San Francisco Bay Area.   After graduating cosmetology school, I trained under master stylists  in San Francisco developing my  technical skills, & creative artistry for 3 years.  I then moved up to Portland, and began styling hair on my own exclusively at Aveda salons in the Portland metro area. After working in salons for 8 years, in order to have more flexibility (after having my second baby boy) I decided to leave the salon. I began working in my home salon, and on location for weddings. 

    After working weddings exclusively for a few  years,   I founded the Portland Makeup & Hair team in 2012.  We are an award winning team of incredibly skilled & personable artists.   I'm so proud to be able to say that the company continues to win awards,  be featured in several magazines,  grow & thrive every year.

 I continue my education attending top hair classes, shows, & conventions each year.      I also enjoy working on commercial,  editorial,  and a variety of projects.   Some of my most recent clients include:

Intel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Comcast, Senator Gabby Giffords, 2018 Gold medal Olympian Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, 2018 Gold medal Olympian Rico Roman

I have been a professional cosmetologist for over 20  years, and absolutely love working in the industry. I love what I do, and love that I often get to work with some really amazing artists & friends! 



Josalyn has been in the beauty industry for 13 years and with Portland Make-up & Hair since 2012. She has an incredibly sweet personality, and is always striving to make her clients feel comfortable and provide them with a look they love. She takes great pride in her work- always making sure each false-lash is perfectly placed, or strategically pinning each piece of hair to the perfect place while creating an updo.

Josalyn's  natural talent,  incredible work ethic, & commitment to providing clients with excellent customer service make her an extraordinary asset to the Portland Make-up & Hair team. 






  I’ve always had a passion for fashion and style,  and I knew from a very young age I wanted to  work in the beauty industry.   I  graduated from the Aveda Institute Denver in 2010 ( hair/esthetics/nails).   From 2010-2015 I worked for MAC Cosmetics-  I fully enjoyed my time with MAC, & was very successful within the company.   I have advanced training and certifications with  MAC Cosmetics, and have taken one-on-one classes under Bri(Portland makeup and hair owner) in both bridal makeup and hair. I enjoy learning,  and expanding my knowledge on the latest trends.

    For the last 2 years I have been focusing on my career as a stylist in the salon,   as well as  doing bridal makeup & hair with the PM&H team.   I have been part of the PM&H  team since 2012.  Doing makeup and styling hair  is  truly my passion.   I love working with brides, and not only making them feel beautiful, but giving them a new found confidence. It’s such a rewarding feeling.   I’m so thankful to be a part of such a fantastic team of talented women who are so enthusiastic about their craft.

   In my spare time, I love doing anything social, spending countless hours on Pinterest and Instagram looking at make-up, hair and fashion, traveling, and spending time outdoors with friends and family. 





I am a veteran makeup artist in Portland, working professionally for the last 9 years. I have styled over 200 brides and bridal parties. I have also done extensive commercial work for clients that include Nike, Target and Martha Stewart Weddings. 

My style is understated, clean and on trend. All my brides say they danced the night away and slept in their makeup, only to have it in place in the morning!!! 



I am just a girl who fell in love with makeup and all things beauty and have never looked back!  I have over a decade of experience in event makeup and have been professionally trained by top makeup lines such as Anastasia of Beverly hills, Trish McEvoy, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, and Smashbox just to name a few. With my knowledge and expertise I can bring any clients desired look to life including makeup, lashes, and gorgeous skin. I  have been a licensed esthetician for 13 years and also hold an advanced lash certification for both lash extensions and lash lifts/perms, and offer brow shaping and design, lash and brow tinting, and  many types of facial services. I cater to anyone who needs makeup or lash services for any type of occasion whether its glamorous brides to every day beauty!  





For as long as I can remember, I’ve had my hands in hair.   I attended The Academy of Hair Design in Salem, OR where I received my Cosmetology license.  I quickly excelled to the top of my class,  and was the top student in the school for ten consecutive  months.     I continue my education so that I am able to provide my clients with the very best service & skill.   I love that I am able to have my passion be my “job”.  There is something about being able to make a bride feel like her best self, as well as all of the beautiful women she hand picked to be by her side.

When I’m not working weddings,  I stay very busy-  I have two beautiful girls that keep my life very interesting,  and busy and a husband who just might be Prince Charming. I’ve grown up in the PNW and adore all it has to offer.   I truly take pride in what I do,  and I love that I get to meet amazing people while doing it!

I have always LOVED styling hair for special occasions.  Because of my experience styling hair for several  years, and  I'm confident  can  recreate any look-  bringing my clients visions to life.  I’m constantly growing as an artist to keep up the advances  in the beauty industry.     I'm excited to be part of a team that allows me the opportunity to utilize my creative talents & skill.  Plus,  It’s always a pleasure getting to know all my clients and being a part of such a special day.

 When I'm not  doing hair,  I stay busy spending time with my husband and three sweet kiddos (5 year old daughter and 4year boy/girl twins). I'm a Native Oregonian & love everything about the Pacific Northwest. I love spending the time at the beach, and being out doors riding my horse, and hanging out with friends!

 When I was young, I would watch my mom apply her makeup and transform into the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen.   I was instantly fascinated with all things beauty,   and I knew this would be my profession. Early on in my career,  I worked at Sephora for two years.  While there,  II received extensive training on several high end makeup brands, skincare products, haircare,  and  hot tools.   I also received invaluable training in technique and perfect color matching.

     After moving to Oahu, Hawaii, I officially began my career as a wedding hair and makeup artist.  During that time, I did hair and makeup for over 100 weddings and special events. After a few years in Oahu,   I moved to the Pacific Northwest to further my career as an artist.    I attended Bella Institute of Cosmetology in Tigard and became licensed esthetician. Wedding season is my favorite season,   and making women feel confident and beautiful on such an important day is what I love most about my job. It's that look of surprise and disbelief when they see their transformation in the mirror that makes me grateful to have a kickass job!
