Alexis Mattingly

"When you look fantastic, you feel fantastic." That's the kind of feeling I try to give to all my clients. I have always been fascinated with the beauty industry, growing up I quickly learned that I wanted to do both hair and makeup. I gained my cosmetology license in Indiana at Prosser School of Cosmetology and later studied at Faces by Kathy Moberly. I decided that I not only wanted my Indiana license but Kentucky's as well. I have 3+ years of experience in photo, bridal, and event hair and makeup. I have also had work published in TOPS Louisville. The most rewarding about this industry is being able to connect with each person who sits in my chair and creating the best version of whatever it is they want.
