Welcome to my Blog!

Hello everyone,

My name is Andreina Ortega also known as Nina this is my first time blogging so please bare with me! At first I was super hesitant to start a blog like what do I talk about? how do I even get started? will people even like what I post? That was just my insecurities talking. I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and create my blog in hopes to let you inside the hair and makeup world, but also answer many questions involving the bridal industry.

My journey started in 2007 fresh out of high-school still disappointed that culinary school wasn’t happening. I felt like a failure and didnt know what was in store for me. My mom had mentioned there was a few beauty schools in the area and I should check them out. I mean after all I was doing my hair, my patient little sister (bless her heart and scalp), and all my friends hair and makeup for parties or recitals. So I thought why not give it a shot maybe I will really love it. We arranged a tour at a few schools and we finally got to Blaine Beauty School. One of the instructors handed me a blow dryer and asked me to show him what I got. not only did I surprise him but I surprised myself.

A year later I graduated and was able to become a licensed cosmetologist. With assisting, networking, handing business cards and flyers left and right working retail for years I was able to pursue a full time hair and makeup artistry business. I am very grateful to have come such a long way and am honored to make people look but feel beautiful every time they leave my chair. Thank you for stopping by I hope you all enjoy my blog!


Lipsticks and Hugs,
