My name is Katy Albright I've been a licensed Cosmetologist and professional Makeup Artist since 2012. I studied at the Aveda Institute of Charlotte North Carolina, and then continued on to work at one of the top Aveda salons in NC, Modern Salon and Spa until 2014. During my training behind the salon chair I learned new techniques and skills I would later bring with me to New York City. April 2014 I was signed as a hairstylist and Makeup Artist with Agency Gerard Management. From there I had the opportunity to develop and master my hair and makeup skills on set. a year later I decided to go off on my own as a full time freelance artist. I have had the pleasure to work with some amazing clients such as; Calvin Klein, Target, West Elm, Dress Barn, Macy's, Kohl's, Belk, Under Armour, etc.
I've also had the opportunity to see my work published in; Allure, Redbook Magazine, Makeup Artist Magazine, Modern Salon, Nylon, GQ China, Glassbook, etc
In 2013 I became the first makeup artist in North America to receive the title of "Makeup Artist of The Year 2013" for NAHA (North American Hairstyling Awards).
"NAHA" Makeup Artist of the Year 2013
I feel so blessed to have this wonderful opportunity to be able to express my creativity and passions through hair and makeup artistry. I have worked with some truly amazing industry professionals who have inspired me and motivated me throughout my journey. I hope to continue learning new techniques and expand my knowledge of the beauty industry moving forward.
