PUBLISHED MAKEUP ARTIST AND HAIRSTYLIST
My name is Adrienn Ihasz. I became interested in beauty and makeup from early age. I remember I was around 9 years old when I realized ladies wear makeup and they look different when they do. Later as a true Libra, I started to like everything related beauty: magazines, photography, makeup and hair.
I was born in Budapest, Hungary. Lately it's been a popular filming location. In 1996 “Evita” was filmed there, starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas. I was a huge Madonna fan at that time so I decided to sign up as an extra in the film. Not only I could watch Madonna and Banderas acting from close but I also loved to observe makeup artists on set. All the lights, makeup chairs and of course makeup!
After a while I found myself in a makeup chair doing TV commercials for companies like Coca Cola, Wrigley’s and T-Mobile. I am pretty bad in acting so it didn't lead anywhere but I met many talented makeup artists and was fascinated about the transformation they did with makeup. There were times when photographers asked me to do makeup on their models.
After my son was born I decided to follow my dreams. I wanted to create every day something new, something special - and to make people happy. I took the step to learn more about professional makeup and I am so happy I did!
I attended Fashion Art Makeup School in Budapest and learnt from Linda Simko.
After that I moved to Southern California and wanted to learn more about makeup, I signed up at Cosmo Makeup Academy.
Later I attended the Master class with celebrity Makeup Artist Mario Dedivanovic to learn his techniques.
I moved to Austin more than a year ago and I love all the opportunities I get here.
Hope to see you in my chair soon!
