Today we’d like to introduce you to Hajja Barnes.
Hajja, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’m originally from the Bronx, New York. I moved to LA with intentions to grow my business as a Makeup Artist and Hairstylist for fashion and entertainment. I have been in the beauty industry since I was 16 years old and I am dedicated to the empowerment of women as I use my gift to inspire and uplift.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has been a roller coaster ride of many highs and a few lows. Prior to getting my cosmetology license I would take 8 buses a day in order to do what I am now doing professionally. I have been both selected and rejected for opportunities only to become reselected for better opportunities. I’m a firm believe that everything in life happens for a reason and am dedicated to fulfilling each and every one of my dreams.
So, let’s switch gears a bit and go into the BeautyByHajj story. Tell us more about the business.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
In 5 years Infullt intend on being known as a celebrity Makeup Artist and fashionista. In 6-10 I would like to receive a beauty award for my excellence in this industry.
