Vanessa graduated from Empire Beauty school in 2019. Since that time, she has specialized in hair styling and makeup for brides, traveling all over New England. Vanessa also styles for photo shoots for websites, magazines, pageants, and commercial ads. She decided she wanted to become a cosmetologist when she was doing her friend’s hair and makeup for her wedding. Seeing the emotion that overcame her friend in the moment of her hair and makeup reveal, was something Vanessa would never forget. When not on location, she works in the salon, giving her clients the hair of their dreams with sew in hair extensions using the Invisible Bead Method, or a custom color. Vanessa specializes in blondes and loves working with long hair. She also enjoys make up applications. Excelling at her craft is her upmost focus, therefore she attends additional advanced classes with every opportunity she gets, to ensure her clients receive the best possible experience. In Vanessa’s spare time, she loves to sing and compose music. You can find Vanessa’s work on Instagram @vanessawhiteneyartistry!
