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.
