Maia - Minneapolis Hair Artisan

What makes your artistry unique?: I believe that while being able to deliver the desired looks/styles to my guests is extremely important, there also lies a strong value in making sure that every person I see has a great overall experience and feels right at home in my chair. I have a pretty laid back, positive and friendly personality that allows me to connect with others easily. I love being able to build and maintain relationships with all of my people, whether it’s our first time meeting or I’ve been seeing them for years.

What inspires you? Creatively... Instagram, Pinterest, and Youtube.

Style Icon: Jennifer Lopez has always been so stunning and glamorous to me, and I love watching her style evolve through the years.

Hobbies/Interests: Spending time with family and friends, getting outdoors and traveling often. I coach a high school dance team at my alma mater. I like to stay busy and pack as much into each day as possible!

WarPaint Artisan Since: November 2017

Specialty: Soft, romantic bridal updos and styles; glamorous and lasting blowouts (especially with extra curls and waves)

Education & Experience: I’ve always loved giving my friends and family makeovers and helping teach and inspire others anyway I can. I have freelanced hair and makeup since I was in high school; I graduated from Regency Beauty Institute with my cosmetology degree in 2012. I have gone on to work in high-end salons as well as on-site doing both hair and makeup for proms, weddings, and other events ever since.

Do what you love; love what you do.
