Tanya is a highly trained and professional hair stylist and makeup artist working from a private home studio in Shoreline, WA. As a young girl, she had an affinity for creating art including drawing, photography, and especially hair and make-up. Shortly after graduating from the cosmetology program at Northwest Hair Academy-Paul Mitchell, Tanya completed a year of advanced training at a high end salon in downtown Seattle where she worked along side some of Seattle's best hair talent. Tanya later made the decision to venture off and work independently to start Tanya Hair and Makeup.
Since going independent Tanya has continued to attend classes and workshops on advanced coloring and cutting techniques and has expanded her product knowledge ensuring that her clients are always getting access to the latest trends. She has also received training at numerous specialty classes in formal hair styling and up-do's as well as makeup courses on looks for every occasion. She prides herself on having a fun yet professional attitude and the ability to work with all hair and skin types, custom tailoring a look to best suit her client.
Tanya has provided hair and/or makeup services for numerous commercial and video productions including Wizards of the Coast, Atlantic Records, Studio JKoe Productions, Macklemore, Vita Coco, The Golfing Society, Emani makeup, and more. Tanya has also worked on countless local fashion shows, editorial shoots and weddings.
My mission as a stylist is to be a day-maker and create beautiful hair and/or makeup in the process. Helping my clients smile at who they see in the mirror is what motivates me and I will always give 100 percent to every service.
The art of hair dressing can be used as a tool for giving back to the community. Tanya has contributed to various community events including the annual Runway to Freedom as the lead hairstylist and the Plymouth Housing Group 6th Annual Seattle Dances event in 2015. Tanya also donates her time to give haircuts at Mary's Place with the RTF team.
