Founder of K. Noelle Artistry
Kristyn is entering her 17th year in the beauty industry. After growing up in Northern Indiana, never, in her wildest dreams did she think she would be running her own hair and makeup business in the outrageously gorgeous Northern Michigan. She feels so fortunate to be creatively using her hair and makeup talents, while meeting some really amazing people, while traveling through luscious countryside to set up her pop-up boutique at one of the many beautiful venues UpNorth. Life is grand!
Favorite hair styles- a sleek chignon bun or slightly loose, all down or half up with a twist at the nape with loose curls, or loosely twisted braid that elegantly tapers down the back.
Favorite makeup style- glowing natural skin (Airbrush),a bit of highlighter on the cheekbone, a slight contouring in the hollows of the cheek and along the jawline, false lashes, eye shadow contouring, a fine line of dark brown/black eyeliner all the way around the eye, extra mascara and a neutral lip (In the fall, a mulberry lip color is gorgeous).
Experience/Education- began with stage makeup, Boutique makeup, extended education at MUD (Makeup Designory School), Kevin James Bennett Makeup class (Chicago, Ill), Smashbox training, Epiphanyl Salon and Spa Apprenticeship (Cosmetology License), Hair and Makeup by Steph Seminar in Detroit,MI , Aveda Hair Shows, Chicago Hair Show, The Makeup Show with master classes by Orlando Santiago.
Outside of the beauty industry, Kristyn will be dreaming of her next great outdoors excursion. She does not like to tent camp, yet, well maybe never. She does enjoy a nice big RV with running water and her own toilet. Her husband husband, 2 boys, and the double doodle, Mila, are always including in this dreaming process. Our next dream is to head out west to The Grand Canyon, Colorado, Zion National Park and some day Hawaii! Will it happen this year? She hopes so!
When she’s not dreaming of traveling she’s planning her next meet up with her family in Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois. They are pretty special to her. Hiking, kayaking, swimming, boating, eating (at new foodie joints), anything outdoors, taking kids to camps, reading, coffeeing, wineing are favorites as well.
