My name is Karen Dela Cruz. My fascination for hair, makeup and fashion started when I was a little girl. My journey began working as a nurse for over eight years. Healing people simply had its rewards. I loved taking care of people and being able to do for them what they could not do for themselves. I then started a catering, Hair/Makeup, and Photography business shortly after. It’s where I found my other passion… feeding the soul, making people feel beautiful inside and out, capturing that moment and making it last a lifetime!
I am a professional and highly respected Hairstylist, Makeup Artist, and Wardrobe Stylist for over twent years. I endlessly pursued opportunities to perfect my skills and gain experience. Ive worked in fashion shows, done updo’s and airbrush makeup for weddings, print work for magazine ads, photo shoots, theatrical and stage makeup, studio work, videos and film. I am also a licensed Cosmetologist/Esthetician with salon experience. I specialize in customized haircuts, hair color, balayage technique, ombre, highlights and color correction.
I love what I do and am passionate about it. It enables me to share my knowledge and inspire others through teaching. My focus is not only on the flawless look of the outer appearance but promote the lasting power of
inner beauty. Full time, I work for a well known laboratory doing Immuno Histo Chemistries all over the world. I work closely with pathologists helping to diagnose patients with blood borne diseases and fighting cancer one slide at a time.
I am a visionary, the type of person who closes her eyes and sees the future. Not just any future… a future full of dreams that I’ve created for myself. I enjoy the simple things in life and grateful for those who I can share it with. The road to happiness is endless, but I am surely getting there!
