After leaving her hometown, Pittsburgh, PA, and moving out west to Phoenix, AZ; She finally enrolled herself in cosmetology school, and with her grind, grit, and determination, she graduated in 2012. Missy had a late start to her cosmetology career, that didn’t stop her from making up for the lost time and accomplishing her goals.

Shortly after she graduated from “The Studio Academy of Beauty,” she found herself instantly in the hair-show circuit, working as an “Artist/Brand Ambassador” for Enzo Milano. Traveling from city to city while maintaining a full book of clients behind the chair, this is where her love, talent, and skill set truly blossomed.
