ESTHETICIAN / NAIL TECHNICIAN / MASSAGE THERAPIST
Angela started out her career with SALON ONE as a receptionist when she was 15. From there, she pursued massage therapy, esthetics, and nail technology.
Her love of makeup began along with her long career in theatre when she was 12. From there, her fire for makeup was reignited when she went to school for skin care. Since then, she’s had the pleasure of working on commercials and films. During one particularly amazing experience, Angela helped make award-winning theatre actor Doug Jones into a Big Foot-like creature for a film.
Angela also worked with the Linn Brothers on an Indie film in which the main character suffered from leukemia. This required the use of a bald cap in addition to makeup to illustrate the severity of the character’s illness. She has also volunteered for some Flutter Productions at the Suzie Cappa Art Center where she designed the looks for the creatures.
In addition to excelling in makeup and massage therapy, Angela is an incredibly skillful nail artist, and her work with Shellac nails is sensational. She says that with Shellac nails the possibilities are literally endless. Acrylic nails, on the other hand, are much more difficult to work with and are not as gentle to the nail bed as Shellac is.
Angela is married to an amazing man. Together, she and Scotty have an adorable son, Archer, and two dogs, Dobby and Babs.
Who do you admire the most?
My mom. I know that a lot of people say this, and maybe that makes me cliché, but she is the most amazing woman. She made me who I am today. She’s also the best Nana to my son, Archer. She is his world.
If you could trade lives with anyone for a day, who would it be?
Ve Neill. She is one of the most amazing special effects makeup artists out there. She’s worked on Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Beetlejuice. Living that life for a day would rock!
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.
