I am from the small town of Weimar, Tx (about 3 hours south of here). As a child I always wanted to grow up and be something BIG, I wanted people to know my name. I moved to Waco in 2011 with big dreams to be the BEST here, there, anywhere. I attended the McLennan Cosmetology Program and fell in love with making people feel beautiful. After graduating in 2012, I immediately started working at a salon in my hometown. But that dream of being BIG took over, and I wanted something more. After months of debating, I decided to move back to Waco. I was still trying to find myself. And I did! I now feel like I am something BIG. I own my own salon, Cortny + Co, located in Waco Texas. I have the two best pups in the entire world, and my dream guy. And Waco is now my forever home.
I have been in this industry for only 7 years, and at 26 years old I can honestly say I never imagined life being this good! I am a baylayage enthusiast, confident color specialist, as well as a hair extension expert. I currently offer tape-in, and specialize in the latest hand-tied hair extensions. I trained with Chrissy Rasmussen of Habit Salon. And am currently working to create my own method to educate other stylists. Over the past 3 years I have taken my talents to another level, becoming a licensed Permanent Makeup Artist. Specializing in Microblading and Ombre/Powder Brows. Both are forms of cosmetic tattooing for the eyebrows.
Nothing makes my day better, than making someone else's. I see over 30 clients a week, and knowing that each and every one of them leaves feeling more beautiful or more confident about themselves is the greatest feeling of all! I was given this gift to give to others. And knowing that makes me feel BIG.

Microblading is a “semipermanent” technique for enhancing the appearance of the eyebrows. Pigment is implanted into the skin in fine, short strokes resembling hair, using a hand-held tool with a blade formed of tiny needles. Microblading is meant to look the most natural.
Powder/Ombre brows is a form of permanent makeup that help clients achieve more of a powder or ombre look instead of individual hair strokes. Powdered brows heal to look like a soft makeup and work great for clients with oily or mature skin. A favorite for anyone who wants to look like their brows are “filled in” at all times.
Combination brows are a combination of hairstrokes and powder. This is by far my most favorite technique, as it still looks very natural when it heals. Combination brows are best for someone with already full but “patchy” brows. Great for any skin type!
Hand Tied Extensions, also known as beaded wefts, natural beaded rows or sew in extensions, is the method used to apply hand tied wefts.
Hand Tied Wefts are sewn together by hand, making the weft portion of the hair much thinner than Machine Tied Wefts and much more expensive.
