LESLIE JO

(HAIR & MAKEUP ARTIST)

Leslie Jo is a graduate of Paul Mitchell The School - Salt Lake City. Since starting her cosmetology and esthetics career in 2009 she has sought to know and understand every aspect of the beauty industry. Her passion for education and love for the technical side of hair styling and makeup artistry has placed her as a lifelong student and a believer of "once you stop learning you start dying". Her list of advanced education she has taken through the years is impressive; Kevin Murphey, Davines, Bumble & Bumble, Nick Arrojo, Loreal Professional, James Ryder Makeup Labs, Jane Iredale Cosmetics (Certified), Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics and Vivienne Mackinder, just to name a few as well as apprenticed successful artists in the industry that specialize in bridal work.

In this industry, Leslie Jo's heart really lies in helping people blossom by bringing out a reflection of who they are on the inside. Watching someone boost in confidence is what makes this her dream job.

Her favorite part about working weddings is assisting women to push their looks and get done up in ways they normally don't but keeping them still feeling like themselves. That, and the romance of it all...

Though Leslie Jo has the skills to accomplish looks from soft and natural to high fashion glamour, she loves it most when clients request a retro-inspired look that includes victory rolls, finger waves or just a beautiful side swept Hollywood glam. And though you will almost always find her wearing a killer winged eyeliner and possibly a bold lip, when it comes to her favorite makeup application, there is nothing more swoon-worthy than a soft smokey eye, bee-stung-like lip, and a creamy complexion.

Hair brands she loves and uses are Kevin Murphy and Davines.

Makeup brands she loves and uses are Make Up For Ever, Lorac, Youngblood, and Hourglass.
