Her passion for this industry keeps her motivated to continue advanced education and stay current. Ariel will make you look and feel your best. She uses her intuition to create the perfect look for any occasion. She’ll listen to exactly what you are envisioning and deliver polished, beautiful looks whether your comfort zone is sticking to natural or full glam.
Ariel’s work has been published in numerous magazines, featured on countless blogs and has been televised on a local and national level. She is sought out by many high profile clients who book her for their social engagements, public speaking or special occasions.
