Award-Winning Union Square, San Francisco Artist
Stella was born in South Korea where she learned the business first-hand from her mother, who was a well-known celebrity hair and makeup artist. Through attending beauty events with her mother, Stella's passion for beauty grew strong.
While in college, Stella began her career at a beauty counter in San Francisco. She quickly grew a private clientele and loved working with them so much that after graduation, she moved to Los Angeles to earn her Master Make-up Diploma along with her Make-Up Designory (MUD). Stella continued her studies at the San Francisco Blush School of Makeup and has since received nine additional certifications for permanent makeup, including lips, brow, lash liner, and scalp, as well as specialized training for permanent makeup removal. Stella is also uniquely certified to provide a specialty service called "Covered BB Glow Facial" that few US providers offer.
Stella has unique expertise in removing and correcting undesirable 3D Microblading and Permanent Makeup results, often performed by providers that lacked proper technique due to improper training and/or lack of legal licensing. Stella holds certificates for lash and brow extensions and has a cosmetology license from Cidesco (Master of Aesthetics). To grow her passion and stay up to date on the latest permanent makeup techniques, Stella attends yearly conferences and has also received training from renowned South Korean beauty gurus.
Stella is truly a master of her art and has a trained eye for creating beautiful, natural looks for all of her clients.
I've been in the beauty industry for more than a decade and I love every day of it!
