About Cherise

Good to Meet You

I am a self taught makeup artist, doing weddings since age 17. I use all the top makeup brands on my brides, including MAC, Too faced,Benefit and Ardell to mention just a few. In 2016 I was voted the #2 makeup artist in San Jose,Ca by Expertise.com. I have been a licensed cosmetologist for 12 years and I love to do onsite special occasion hair and hair color at my salon in Los Gatos. In 2011 I was lucky enough to study under Michael O’Rourke, creator of the brand Big Sexy Hair. It changed my whole outlook on the world of hair and made me a better stylist and the business-woman I am today. I also received my hair extension training from the owner of Babe Brand Hair Extensions in Vegas in 2012. Being hand selected out of all the stylists using Babe Brand was a HUGE honor and definitely a highlight in my career. It is extremely important to me to continue to take hair and makeup classes to stay current and extend my knowledge!

I LOVE hair and makeup, I love what I do. When I’m not behind the chair, you can find me on stage; I’ve been singing for almost 20 years and  I just love to sing! Or you can find me doing Crossfit at Crossfit Gilroy,spending time with friends, family and my husband, Patrick and our daughter, Ireland. I love concerts, Disneyland, wine tasting and you can always find me with a Starbucks iced coffee in my hand.

I can’t wait to make you feel beautiful!
