A few week’s ago I asked you guys for who you think is Houston’s best Hair and Make-Up professionals. I received a lot of feedback and compiled a list along with some information on these amazing beauty pros. These professional’s are the ones whose work truly impressed me. While some are seasoned vets others are up and coming but don’t let that fool you the talent really is up to par across the board. Enjoy!
- I’ll start with my longtime friend Jacky Madrid. She is a graduate of Paul Mitchell and worked in an upscale salon in Spring for many years. Since she has opened up her own salon in the heights The Color Bar where she creates the most beautiful and well blended hair colors I’ve seen. When it comes to color that is natural looking and beautiful this is your stylist.

- Next up is a seasoned veteran in the beauty industry who has been working on my hair and face since I was 15 years old. He has done my hair and make-up for every special occasion in my life. I am of course talking about Luis Enriquez! He is an amazing colorist and stylist. He has taken my hair from long to short, red to blonde, and everything in between. My favorite thing about Luis is that he is an all in one package. He does hair and make-up making him perfect for special occasions and he specializes in on-site glam sessions. If you are looking for someone who will get and understand what look you want to create he is the perfect match for you! He is currently located in the Willowbrook area and takes appointments only, that is how good he is! Go like his Facebook page and follow his work, you totally won’t be disappointed!

- This next lady is a life saver. To make the long story short as to how I met her, the night before my bridal shower I had no one to do my make-up so one of my bridesmaids knew her and she did an amazing job even though we gave her only a few hours worth of notice. Ms. Denise Arroyo creates fabulous looks, from total glam to natural simplicity. I literally just showed her a picture of what I wanted my face to look like and she went to town and nailed it! She is also very knowledgeable when it comes to different make-up lines and how they work with different skin types. I never felt like my face had been caked on and I looked like myself which is something I always strive for. Follow her Instagram page and keep up with her world of beauty! @denisearr
