… A New Orleans born, HELL RAISING..

Wait let me start over.. Well the first part is true, I am born and raised for the MOST part in New Orleans. I’ve been in the beauty biz since the age of 16. Lets just say it started since I was a little girl, chopping every Barbie dolls hair I ever owned. Giving my neighbor a perm at the ripe old age of 12, madly watching a ‘Makeover Story’ on TLC, and ‘What Not to Wear’. Landing my first big girl job at a salon known as H2O in New Orleans, which at the time in 2004 was the place to be, housing 90 employees total. Little ole’ me was hungry for learning, growing, and becoming successful like the top women in that salon.
Made a move after beauty school to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I completed my credentials in 2008, and learned from the best around for another 7 years…

After buying my first home, which I count as a big step in the adult world, I decided I needed to make the change. Circumstance led me to make that change on an impulse rather than plan like our parents always tell us. So yeah, the day I paid my first mortgage on my house was the day I quit my job in the salon and decided to branch off to open Hair by Hillary Studio. Which consisted of working behind the chair full time in my first studio out of Baton Rouge Louisiana.

I decided it was time to make a move to Key West,  a place where I found love myself. I love diversity and the ability to work with Brides one day,  seeing clients in the salon part time in Louisiana, and having fun behind the camera! Helping to inspire other women to believe that they can put their mind to whatever it is they desire
