Beautiful talent.....

We have some amazing talent at Platinum Studio Salon. The makeup at this photo shoot was done by our talented receptionist Arleene Taylor. Arleene has been working as our receptionist for the last few months while she is building her clientele as a makeup artist. You can feel and see the passion that Arleene has for makeup. She magically transforms people making them look exactly what they feel in the inside, outside. Check out her blog on our blog list called My heartistry. It has great makeup tips and information. If you would like to get your make up done by Arleene call Platinum Studio to set up an appointment.

The hair in this photo shoot was done by one of Platinum's hairstylists Chelsey Jackson. Chelsey is a sweet bubbly stylist that loves to be creative. She always has a smile on her face and is ready to take any hair challenge that comes her way. Not a lot of people know this but Chelsey has been a model herself for a few photo shoots and it blows you away how naturally beautiful she really is. If you would like to try out Chelsey's hair skills call Platinum Studio and they will set up that appointment for you.

The photos were taken by Hayley Anderson Kaze. You can view her amazing photography on her blog which also is on our blog list called A little girl behind the lens. Hayley is extremely talented in photography. You will be able to view more pictures from this photo shoot and also find her information on her blog.

Meet Destiny Rayburn.....

PS: What inspired you to become a hairstylist?
DR: My bestfriend's mom owned her own salon and she would practice on me. That made me want to become a hairstylist. I looked at some schools here in Utah. I decided to apply and started school a year later.
