When I was 14 years old, I started to pursue my career as a makeup artist. After High school I went to take business classes at Community College & then went on to complete makeup school at Academy Di Capelli at age 19. I Served as a Makeup Artist at Kiko Milano, Lord & Taylors, Clinique, & Macy’s for 3 years.

I can’t rave enough about my experience at Authentic Beauty Salon and Spa. Instead of calling Paulette a beautician she should be called a magician She is a master at her craft.Not only does she style your hair wonderfully,but her main focus is good hair care .Something that is a rarity But best of all she is a GREAT person.
