I am a 26 year old hairstylist and makeup artist in the Chicagoland area, having been in the beauty industry professionally since I was 18. Pursuing creativity has always been a passion of mine, starting off as an artsy/nerdy kid who loved (and still loves) things like Halloween, videogames, anime, comics, and cosplaying. I started my Instagram as a way to merge my two passions - beauty and everything nerdy. I chose the name ‘LadyParadoxx’ as a way to reflect that. I hope that through my work I can reach out to the kids who are like I once was, to show them that it’s amazing to be different and contradictory, and to never stop pursuing what makes them happy.
