About Tamara

Makeup Artist, Hair Stylist, Photographer, Educator

I am a makeup artist & hair stylist based out of the Bay Area, CA. I have a background in photography and as a licensed professional I see private clients as well as work as an industry freelancer.  At night I teach at a cosmetology school in both the cosmo program and their advanced MAC makeup artistry course. I love science and the ability to be creative and feel like I have found the perfect harmony incorporating my various skills and interests.

I am passionate, professional, and intensely driven. It isn’t just my job, it’s my life!

What My Clients Are Saying
  • Tamara is a gifted hairstylist. She can make a haircut feel like a make-over. Really understands your look and gives super useful pro tips. Custom color mixologist extraordinaire!!! She helped me add just enough punk rock to still look professional.

  • I had a special event in the Bay Area and with work’s busy schedule I had no time to run by my local salon before my trip  (I live in SoCal).  A friend referred me to Tamara, he promised me I wouldn’t be disappointed.  A bit nervous I made the call.  Immediately I was getting some awesome advice on new ways to treat and style my hair.  I have long curly hair which I’m not to thrilled about.  Yeah you know the story, if you have curly hair you want straight hair and vise-versa blah blah….  Before I knew it she had me convinced to color my hair with some high lights.  I am 45 years old (blessed with only a few grays) and never in my life had my hair colored.  Feeling adventurist and hearing Tamara discuss my hair for like 30 minutes I was confident she knew what she was talking about and had me excited.  I am so happy with my hair, I love it!!!!  The only thing I am upset with is that I do not live in the Bay Area and would love/Need to see her more often.  Folks if you live anywhere near her I say go and try her out, she is Awesome.

  • I had a great haircut by Tamara.  It was easy to schedule and she was fast and efficient.  I think she’s a master with cutting thin hair!  Good with the scissors and affordable. Thanks Tamara :)
