WELCOME

CELEBRITY STYLING / HAIR / MAKEUP

This is more than just hair and make-up…
It’s about creating BEAUTY inside and out…
It’s about living this from your heart as a life-style…

I AM BETTINA

I possess an eye for detail and have harnessed a creative force since I was small. As a young child I could see the musical notes of a song in my mind, and hear the accompanying music in my ears as clearly as if I was reading sheet music. I took a lot of pleasure in building large doll houses out of cardboard and decorating them with furniture, rugs, and wallpaper made from scraps of fabric and household items. I’ve left many a shaved, painted Barbie dollhead in my wake..

I started styling when I was 14 for my girlfriends before the school dances, and quickly became popular when they realized they got asked to dance a lot more when they had been beautified by my magic! I haven’t stopped since. I’ve been around the world three times creating beauty and delight in the connections I’ve made along the way.
