Vera has been involved in the beauty industry for over 10 years!
Heavily influenced by the 1940's and 1950's pinups, she began modeling in 2006 and that is where she discovered her passion for hair and makeup.
In 2009, she attended cosmetology school at a Paul Mitchell Partner School in Everett, WA. During the next few years, while working in salons, she decided to strengthen her skills in makeup and in 2012 Vera enrolled into the beauty and special fx makeup program at the world renowned Make-Up Designory School in Burbank, CA. After graduating makeup school, she worked on set for short films, photo shoots, weddings, and events.
Vera began working for MAC Cosmetics as a Freelance Artist in 2013.
With a passion for men's hair cutting, she attended California Barber and Beauty College in San Diego, CA and in 2016 Vera earned her barber license.
With all of her experience in the beauty industry and her love for eyebrows, she completed her microblading training in February 2017.
In January of 2018, Vera joined the team at La Doyenne and is now working alongside Angi and Jeanie in their beautiful studio located in North Park!
